:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder
While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall. It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.
But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.
I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.
Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph

How to become a photographer.A photographer need attention, patience and curiosity. We call this set the maximum state of alertness, willingness to act but with inner peace. It is a physical and mental concentration, alertness, vigilance, the ability to instantly move to action.How to become a photographer.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is that the photographer has to work with the ultra-small segments of time, most often in the area of 1/200 second, and even 1/8000. It's amazing that our brains can work and respond in such time frames.
So a good shot is almost always a chain of "saw-pressed the trigger," but "analyzed the dynamics, pulled the trigger."
With experience, you can analyze not only simple motion path but such complex processes as facial expressions
This state is a core skill of any photographer, and not related to his outside shooting temperament. Nervous and noisy photographer, in the moments when it is necessary will be in the same state: calm, focus and passion. And a lazy and apathetic person can be successful not onl

Male NudesMale Nudes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is always so much conversation about female nudes, as if men don't much factor into the conversation. In my work I photograph mainly men, but women are anything but forgotten. I work with women who are more about their wholeness than their holeness. If a woman comes to me with her butt pushed out backwards and wearing a hand bra I refer her to my heterosexual friends. If a woman comes to me with grace and overwhelming sensuality then I take pictures of her. As you can well imagine, the field is sometimes limited depending on where I'm living. Take a look at my collections - you'll see what I mean.
At the same time I have no problem finding some of the world's most beautiful men to photograph. I'm lucky. And my being gay has everything and nothing to do with it all at the same time. I don't have sex with my models. What I do have with my models, both male and female is an intimacy that comes from a deep deep trust. I sometimes joke that when peopl

33 Years In 2013 was tough. A year with so many extreme ups and WAY-DOWNS as well. This seems to have been the norm for many people I speak to and associate with (or at least that's the overall impression I've gotten from peeps and meeps). Although I was overall inactive here on DeviantART compared to other years, I formed a much stronger bond with the people who I befriended here. Some people who were "online friends" became "Real Life Friends." I had to restart a new work-life in a field that I know very little about, and have so far been enjoying the experience very much despite the stress and problems that the job brings. Creativity has been booming as of late too (something that i didn't have much of during 2013). Prioritizing what's important in life is another aspect that I learned a lot about in dealing with last year's events. And of course there's the ongoing battle with health-related issues. We all have em. We all have our ways of handling em too. We have to be awar33 Years In1 year ago in Personal More Like This

If you feel offended by this, this isn't anything against any sexualities, just against people who switch orientations like underwear. To get rid off misconceptions, please read the whole journal or stop reading right here.
I've seen people stereotyping deviantART members for being not straight and guess what?
They are right. Nowadays it's hard to find ANYONE on deviantART who is straight anymore.
Well, actually still many of them are, but they just pretend to be someone completely else and it makes me sick by now.
I mean when there is like every second girl I see on dA is either lesbian or bisexual!? what?!
You guys this makes no sense. I understand when some people are unsure about their sexuality and all.
And I also know that some of them actually ARE bi, gay or lesbian. or pan or transexual or whatever else is there.
I am 100% sure that not all of them are.
