society is sexisthttp://www.fox4now.com/story/14821011/11-year-old-stripped-naked-bullied-on-videosociety is sexist4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"To inform you lazy people(though it would be worth your while to read the short article), An 11 year old boy was pinned at the neck and stripped naked by two middle school girls, which basically makes it a misdemeanor battery charge, and more. The boys mother called the police, but they didn't take it seriously until fox started asking questions.
The main issue is that the girls are probably gonna be left of easy and only get a slap on the wrist. While if it was 2 middle school guys doing that to a 11 year old girl (just flipped situation) they would have been given a nice spot on the sex offenders register and time in juve, essentially ruining their lives..
This is basically double standards at play here, and i want to know what the rest of you think about all of this? Should the girls be sent to juve and put on the sex offenders watch list for what the charges they would get?
In my opinion, it seems
How to stay MotivatedHow to stay Motivated.How to stay Motivated1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I’m writing this article for the type of people who say that just can’t find motivation to:
Make a portfolio
Finish a painting
Work on their personal project
I got three tips I’m about to write, and it’s just advice and things that I found useful for myself. If you are capable to do any of these things you should definitely try them.
Fear. Get rid of it. If you are fearful of the outcome it will unmotivate you immediately. Just finish whatever it is and think about how you can improve after. If you can’t see what you need to improve ask someone else to tell you. There is always room to improve, and if you go into a critique with an open mind you will grow exponentially.
Think of it like this. If you were running one lap, and half way through you stopped because you were afraid you were going to throw up or pass out, you will never really know how fast you can run that lap. You didn’t push yours

Hmmm... (Little Edit).... what is it with all those tits- and lady-crotch-shots with those pseudo-intellectual titles like "A dream of your lost desire" or "Loneliness of your heart" that spam DA? Giving it those "artistic" names does not turn a cheap tits- or vagina-shot into an artwork automatically. I am so annoyed, not so much with seeing female parts again and again *yawn* but with the fact that so many people try to sell sex with the "arts" label.Hmmm...

Looks like I should create a penis-cloesup with the title "Bringer of life" or "The mighty snake of forgiveness" or something like that. I wonder if it would be deleted?

Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.
Removing Noise from Non-Dark Framed Long ExposuresHere's an interesting technique I use to reduce noise when doing night photography.Removing Noise from Non-Dark Framed Long Exposures1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Borrowed from http://www.jmg-galleries.com/
One of the big disadvantages of taking long exposures with DSLR cameras is the introduction of noise especially when higher ISO settings are used. Camera manufacturers have addressed this by using Dark-Frame Subtraction, but taking advantage of Dark-Frame Subtraction (DFS) isn’t always possible. If you’re shooting a sequence of images either for a night time-lapse or startrail photo DFS will introduce unwanted gaps or breaks. If you’re shooting extremely long exposures then your camera battery might not last long enough to complete your exposure, the dark-frame exposure and record the exposure to your memory card.

We have changed the rules and select for future four polls -> 6 images per Category (6 x 4 = 24) because we have a lot of "equivalent" hi-q images..!!!
Nature provides us with a never-ending supply of inspiration for photography. Technical quality, clarity and composition are all important, but so too is a flair for the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment when an interesting or unusual lighting opportunity presents itself. Light creates shadow and shadow in return, enhances the appearance of a subject. The interaction of the two is fascinating. Light can make a subject feisty or dull while shadows can make it mysterious or terrifying. The position and strength of the lights and shadows always set the general mood of an image and showcases the creativity of a photographer in capturing their vision of the nature that surrounds us all.

So You Think You're a Photographer, Eh?[I should point out that this is in response to some GWC (Guy With Camera) spouting off about his 'services' available to any woman not wise enough to steer clear on Model Mayhem's Shout Board earlier this evening. It's probably also related to the recent influx of bathroom shots that end up on the dA front page.]So You Think You're a Photographer, Eh?5 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm gonna keep this brief.
You convinced some dumb chick to get nekkid for you and your camera. Now you think you're a photographer and you're creating art. Or, and this is a scenario that just makes me sad, you're a moderately attractive young lady that gets nekkid and takes a picture of yourself with your phone, in the bathroom mirror. You've got a gazillion followers here on deviantArt or Model Mayhem and think you're an artist. Well, it's a little more complicated than that.
Simply because people fave you doesn't make you an artist any more than liking sugar makes you an ANT. Anyone can take pictures of a naked body. ANYONE. Simply having people look at those pictures doe

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that
