Beautiful Photography ++Think Photography is easy as a pie?Beautiful Photography ++2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll tell you what. Photography is the sum of a good amount of virtues. It is talent and inspiration. Creativity and imagination. Commitment and devotion. Patience and attention. Skill and technique. Team spirit and concentration. Art knowledge and innovation. Also, it requires a whole lotta time. And the list may go further and further.
So before you start judging the others' works, think. Don't go throwing sour remarks. Try to be a little sweet and understanding. And if you don't have anything nice to say, just move on. Find what you like and let others do what they like.
To every photographer who recognizes the need of all above, and never stops learning in the pursuit of those virtues, don't forget to Always protect what is yours. And don't you let anyone underestimate you. For I'm sure you put your mind, and body, AND soul in every single photograph you take.

Creative Week: Giveaway + IntroductionWhat is Creative Week?Creative Week: Giveaway + Introduction3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Every year, I take a week away from my job to do nothing but photoshoots, in order to challenge myself and improve my skills as a photographer. Despite working for the best company in the world, my career is not in photography. This sometimes makes it difficult to find the right kind of time and inspiration to capture what I want. My annual 'Creative Week,' is a way for me to do what I love without the worry of heading into work the next day. I can focus on my creativity, and nothing more. Every year I make sure to up the ante, and this year I'll be working with a lot more talent than I have in the past, on bigger productions.
This is my third Creative Week, and similar to those in the past, I will be partnering with the wonderful Miki Sarroca (WingedInfinity). She will be serving as a make up artist, model, and she's done an incredible job of assisting me with organizing these shoots.

Proposal - UPDATE!!I am so nervous right now that I am in need of writing all of this down haha.Proposal - UPDATE!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's time to get married. Our son is 5 months old and I want to share the same surname. Immediatly!
And since my boyfriend doesn't have the guts to ask me to marry him I will do it! Tomorrow!
We're going to celebrate my birthday tomorrow (my birthday is this sunday). Jasper is going to stay a night at his grandparents while we are going to the movies (The Hobbit II) and have a lovely dinner. When we walk to the cinema we always go past a huge hotel, 5 stars, way too expensive, but we always said we are wanting to stay there for just 1 night. I just arranged a room for tomorrow!!
When we go past it tomorrow I will mention it again, and take him inside to ask what 1 night will actually cost. And then it turns out that I actually made a reservation. Surpriiiiiiise!
When we enter the room, our bed will be filled with rose leaves and there will be also a bottle of champain.
Once we will sit down

Steve Jobs - Community Contest and Tribute:icontechgnotic:Steve Jobs - Community Contest and Tribute4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A number of media outlets are closely monitoring the artistic response by our community to the death of Steve Jobs.
For me, Steve Jobs is an icon. The John Lennon of our time. And while his wife and children, as well as Apple and Pixar, are the landmarks of his life, Steve Jobs encapsulates the core values that have inspired a generation, separate from the images put forth by his companies.
It is his iconography that we as a community should come together and try our hands at capturing. No small feat, but it is precisely what I'd like to see us do. The iconography of Steve Jobs himself. Apple and Pixar and those types of images aside, Steve Jobs transcends these accomplishments through the meaning of his life's work, his vision, and the inspiration that he will continue to be to us all.
Iconography is the branch of art history which studies the identification, description, and the int

'Let The Light In (LTLI) is a new tutorial series from the group Good-Intention that will focus on the hows and whys of committing good deeds around the deviantART community. The first article can be found here: LTLI: Art Features
The second edition of this series will focus on the topic of Daily Deviations, and how you can contribute to the community by suggesting them!
What Is A Daily Deviation?
A Daily Deviation is a one-day feature of artwork from various galleries that is chosen by a Community Volunteer (CV). These are showcased at the bottom of most pages on deviantART, as well as displayed in a chronological archive.
There are many misconceptions regarding Daily Deviations, from users believing they're given away as prizes, or given only to friends and popular users of the community. My aim with this article is to help to shine a light on Daily Deviations, and h
Dear teen meG'day all - this is just a quick journal that I thought would be a good exercise - what would you say to yourself as a teenager (or if you ARE a teenager, what would you ask your adult self)?Dear teen me2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Warning - this is purely for fun. Nothing stock related what so ever.
Dear teen me,
Here are 10 things you should know. Ten years have passed since I was your age, in Year 11, when if Kristy was going to kill me because I liked Alex was the biggest issue I faced on a daily basis. Oh sweetheart, embrace the bubble for the moment.
1. Don't worry about being kissed. You'll kiss lots of people - and you'll be good at it.
2. Don't kid yourself about who is important in your life. Let. Them. Go.
3. Don't dismiss the people who love you.
4. Be unafraid. Be brave. You will do incredible things. Travel to the other side of the world by yourself is just one of them. Building a house is another. Delivering a comedic monologue to 2000 people live whilst they laugh their arses off is another.
Precut Stock Providers who Name their SourcesEven if the most of the precut stock providers are sincere, and only use their own resources... they don't often tell it! So, it is very hard to know who makes abusive precut stock pictures or not.Precut Stock Providers who Name their Sources2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to encourage every stock provider to name his sources (even if they are his own).
You'll find here the precut stock providers I found who always name their sources, as you can see they are not very numerous. I hope that every photomapulators will find it useful and that many other precut stock providers will join the move.
I'm sad to see that many of the best precut stock providers I know and who offer they own stock didn't take the time to TELL IT! So, alas, they will not be selected in this list. I hope they'll do in the future and the list will grow.

I dare you ... !Have you ever logged into deviantArt, looked at the newest pictures on the front page and then thought to yourself: What the f*** is going on here?I dare you ... !7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe I’m getting old. Maybe I don’t understand our modern world anymore. Maybe my definition of “art” isn’t that of the majority of people. In other words: maybe it’s just me.
But what if it isn’t?
As of writing these lines, the 24 most popular images of the last 8 hours include three pictures of cartoon ponies, a custom Xbox controller featuring a blue pony princess, a photo of a naked woman, a stock image of a naked woman, two drawings and a painting of naked women, a pixel-art picture of what looks like some sort of ferret, a screenshot of the front page (in order to celebrate the fact that another image of the uploader had made it to the front page), an Asuka fan-art (including boobs the size of watermelons) and some cosplay photos.

When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

As previously mentioned, I won the Perth heat for the Madman National Cosplay Championships - whcih means in November I will be representing the state in the finals. I am currently working on an epic cosplay to suit that - it is taking pretty much all of my free time (I'm not kidding) because I want to enter something that I am proud of and has pushed me to the brink of what I think I can do - and then a few steps more.
I'm not going to say much about my final entry, except that the code name is "The White One", and it has a lot of individual pieces and detail. It's a little like figuring out a puzzle - especially since I want the cosplay to be able to do a few things.
Anyway, I did promise you videos from my preliminary heat, so here they are!

So... now to create something "big" (why did I say that?!)
