Where I live Contest: Results!The amount of entries to the Where I Live contest, was staggering! It truly made the launch of CRPhotography quite special and we appreciate all the promotion, feedback and deviants who worked hard to create something for the theme. The diversity of deviantART was really highlighted with this contest and it was fantastic to see how everybody chose to sum up their home town in a single image with just a few words attached to explain their choice.

Turkish police break up Istanbul park protestIstanbul: Turkish riot police used tear gas and water cannon in a dawn raid Friday to end a peaceful sit-in by hundreds of people trying to prevent trees from being uprooted at an Istanbul park. The move ignited furious protests and clashes that injured at least 12 people.Turkish police break up Istanbul park protest10 months ago in Personal More Like This
The protesters were demanding the square's Gezi Park be protected from plans that include the construction of a shopping mall. Many also aired grievances against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Islamic-rooted government, which has been seen as displaying increasingly authoritarian tendencies in its third successive term.
Protesters in Gezi Park held up a large poster Friday with a caricature depicting Erdogan as an Ottoman sultan with a caption that read: "The people won't yield to you."
Erdogan dismissed the protesters' demands, saying the government would go ahead with the renovation plans "no matter what they do."
The dawn raid was the latest in a series of aggressive crackdown on protests. Human rights acti

Surviving Sports PhotographySports photography.Surviving Sports Photography10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This category of photojournalism is one of the most sought after positions in professional photography. VIP access to pro athletes, frontline seats, locker room interviews, and a paycheck to photograph the whole experience year after year?!!
Sign me up!!
Well, that's how my story began anyway. Years ago, I made the mistake of going to a pro hockey game and within three hours fell madly in love with the smell of ice and the sound of blades. I left the building thinking to myself (and telling anyone who would listen to the ravings of a madwoman): "There has to be some way I can be involved in this for the rest of my life." What actually happened after that night is one of the wildest stories I've ever told and it's still a crazy ride. But getting on that ride and staying on is tricky.
So here's what I've learned so far about actually surviving sports photography

Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep. At least 15 people in this world love you. The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you. There are at least 2 people that would die for you. You mean the world to someone.... someone that you don't even know exist loves you. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look. Always remember the compliments you've received. Forget the rude remarks.
So if you are a loving friend, send this to everyone on your list, including the person who sent it to you.

daynow and then, you'll hear me say this in my office: "Dammit, Mary!"
The "Mary" in question, of course, is our beloved Street CV myraincheck who has once again nabbed a deviant for a feature that I also have slated...and since a deviant cannot be featured more than once every six months you can imagine the number of notes that get sent back and forth as we barter for you like prize stallions.1 The fact is most photojournalists can make excellent street photographers and most street photographers can make excellent photojournalists.
But when is that street photo a piece of photojournalism? Or street?
Now, I'm really not an expert at this...which is why this is a "Discuss it!" journal so do not spank me...

Photojournalism: Discuss it! - Reaching Out Reaching OutPhotojournalism: Discuss it! - Reaching Out10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
One of the most essential things I've learned as a photographer is the importance of reaching out and valuing all of the people who make what I do possible. All of the people I share the space with, my job with, the world with. Reaching out and becoming a part of the world I am hired to photograph has often been the difference between getting the shot, staying safe, and progressing in my field and not.
Every time you take out a camera you become the invader. James Natchtwey once poignantly put it as:
"The act of being an outsider aiming a camera can be a violation of humanity. The only way I can justify my role is to have respect for the other person's predicament. The extent to which I do that is the extent to which I become accepted by the other, and to that extent I can accept myself."
In this case he was discussing the nature of photographing tragedy and war, but it's also true when we photograph anything, anyone, anywhere.

Photojournalism: Discuss it! - Natural EventsDear too-many-deviants:Photojournalism: Discuss it! - Natural Events10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
It's come to my attention that some of you out there feel that photographs "sensually suggesting" masturbation count as a newsworthy "natural event" and therefore belong in the Natural Events subcategory of Photojournalism.
While I recognize that you feel this part of yourself is a universe-rattling philosophical epiphany about naturalness, I hope you will understand that this really isn't the proper category for it and, in some cases, not even the proper website.
Scientifically speaking, a natural event is anything that falls under the category of our planet behaving like a planet. Tectonic plates moving this way and that way, crashing into each other, magma rising through the crust, cold air currents meeting hot air currents, moisture accumulating, electricity gathering, magnetic shields bombarded by space particles...
Based on that, I could photograph the dirt I'm standing on and call it a "Natural Event" simply by including in the artist's comments

Did you know that the notion of "play" is so important to human development that the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights has recognized it as being a "right" of every human child? According to the Academy of Pediatrics:
"Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength...It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them. Play allows children to create and explore a world they can master, conquering their fears while practicing adult roles, sometimes in conjunction with other children or adult caregivers. As they master their world, play helps children develop new competencies that lead to enhanced confidence and the resiliency they will need to face future challenges. Undirected play allows children to learn how to wo
PE Prose Basics: Pacing ( and Show vs. Tell)Hello, everyone! As you all know, this week over at projecteducate is Prose Basics. We're here to help all you prose writers (whether flash fiction, short stories, or novels) get better at your craft with some basic tips for growth. Today, I'm going to be talking about something you've probably heard about again and again: pacing.PE Prose Basics: Pacing ( and Show vs. Tell)2 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is Pacing?
No, it's not what you do when you're stuck on a scene and need to get up and stretch those leg muscles to get your writing juices flowing. It's actually a very important ability that writers have to control the speed their story is read. You as the author get to manipulate the reader in a way and make the speed of the story match the scene. What better way to drop the reader right into the moment? But, pacing also holds the ability to make or break your story and keep or lose your reader's interest. This is why it's so important in writing.

Today saw the first DD I've ever selected as a CV.
I can't even begin to tell you how, after being an avid suggester for years and thinking wouldn't it be great to feature DDs, ...how utterly terrifying the process actually was. There was lots of hand-holding and head-patting (thank you, Astralseed) before I finally hit the submit button.
Featuring DDs is not the only thing I've been asked to do here, but it certainly is the most visible and following in the footsteps of deviants like Timothy-Sim and xbastex (who I remember best since they were the CVs when I was only just getting my feet wet in photography) and working in the company of a really exceptional team for an
