The Reason I Do ArtThe Reason I Do ArtThe Reason I Do Art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ask anyone in the community why they do art. I’m sure that you’re going to find a variety of answers, but that they’ll come back to the same things: because they love it, it helps them express themselves. Art is awesome, because it does allow us to do these things. It’s certainly a part of the reason why I do art. Other reasons? Because I like pretty things, and want to create them. Because I get so excited every time I have a photoshoot or every time I pull up those images onto my computer. Because that moment when you go to pick up your film after waiting for 24+ hours to see how they turned out is just so, so sweet. Because no matter how good I become at it, I can always get better. I’ll never stop learning. The final reason? Because I have to. It’s an urge in me that I just cannot quell.
Something makes me sad, though. What makes me sad is when I see a person, a fellow artist, quit.

219I don't really know what to say. All I know is that i really appreciate you all, and so I'm going to feature each and every one of you, whether you're active or not. And along the way, I'll introduce you to some I know personally or stick out to me.2192 years ago in Personal More Like This
LittleMissBunny is not an active user. She was, however, my photographic partner for my high school years. She's the reason I actually had someone to practice portraits on in that time. This is a photo from a really old series we did, "trash" - which people took completely the wrong way concept-wise She is my first watcher.
LoverOfTheArts is not an active user either, but a lovely young woman with a beautiful soul and a great love for the arts. I met her at theatre camp.
walker14 Another good friend from high school. She's no longer active here.

"Canon is better. No, Nikon is better. It's only good if it's this model. You have this camera, no wonder you're a great photographer. This picture sucks, it's obviously because you're using this model. You can't take a good photo with that camera! I can't believe you chose that camera, what a terrible choice. Well, no wonder this photo sucks, it's taken with an entry level DSLR and th------"
It's okay. Don't panic. I'm here to set the record straight (along with some help with my friend David Tennant).
You may have heard this or something like this before. Unfortunately, there are people who believe that how good your photography is is largely based on what DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera you have in your hands and not what you yourself can do. Sometimes, it's peo
