A Beginner's Guide
Poetry publication is awash with literary magazines, internet journals, print-on-demand presses, vanity presses, indie presses, and major publication houses. So many options! It's a lot to navigate. But before we delve into the 'How-To's,' it's important to understand the 'Why.'

Photography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISOHeader created by TouchedDPhotography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISO3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
TheGalleryOfEve asked recently about SLR settings and in particular, a troubleshooting article focusing on ISO. So here it is! Hopefully this article will help you to understand ISO better, whether a beginner or not.
What Is ISO?
ISO within traditional photography, was an indication of how sensitive a film was to light. Within digital photography it measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. Basically, the lower the number then the less your camera is sensitive to light. Higher ISO numbers are generally used in dark situations to get faster shutter speeds but this can often mean that your shots are noisier. ISO 100 is the most widely used and gives crisp shots with little to no grain. Shooting in automatic means that the camera will select the appropriate ISO for the situations that you are facing, and work out the rest for you to reduce noise as much possible. But it's when you start getting more technical and

Info about stolen artworksHiya!Info about stolen artworks3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So I'm sure some of you had their artworks stolen at one point, posted on facebook, used in a magazine, used in the making of a site, etc. Most of the times you don't know how to react or just don't care if it's of a small importance. But what if you really want to have your artwork removed?
I've just stumbled across this, did anyone know about it?
Btw, it's not a scam, nor spam; I've found it in a photography forum and thought I should share if anyone's interested
Initial Release of the Motion Book ToolIn April of last year, we announced a partnership between deviantART and Madefire, bringing Madefire's signature Motion Books to deviantART and introducing a new form of storytelling to the world's largest art community.Initial Release of the Motion Book Tool2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
We also announced that Madefire's professional-grade Motion Book Tool would be brought to deviantART—giving deviants the opportunity to turn imagination into a visual, auditory, and literary masterpiece, and showcase their art alongside some of the industry’s greatest creators.
After months of development and testing, we are excited to announce that the gradual release of the Motion Book Tool has begun, and you're (very likely) among the first to gain access. Having access to the Tool means you can create dynamic Motion Books just like the pros, and publish them directly from your deviantART account!

Tutorial Showcase #13DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal.

Street DDs February 2014"Which pictures matter? Is it the hard won photograph, knowing, controlled, previsualised? Yes. Or are those contrived, dry and belabored? Sometimes. Is it the offhand snapshot made on a whim? For sure. Or is that just a a lucky observation, some random moment caught by chance? Maybe. Is it an intuitive expression of liquid intelligence? Exactly. Or the distillation of years of looking seeing thinking photography? Definitely." (Paul Graham)"Street DDs February 20142 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Why Not Blame The Victims?First of all, when I got into Photography it was at the beginning of the social media explosion, My Space was King then. A friend told me, "You have to make a profile and get on there," so I did. The one thing that really struck me about that medium was the abundance of self portraiture. I was younger than I am now, shy, and introverted, so there is that to keep in mind, but I kept thinking... Is it about Vanity, Narcissism, Arrogance? I mean I could look around and see so much beauty to photograph, nature, landscapes, places, animals, other people, I just had no desire to shoot myself, I didn't understand it.Why Not Blame The Victims?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
At some point, curiosity got the best of me, I needed a profile picture anyway ... I have no real reason or explanation, I just took a self portrait... then, eventually I took a nude self portrait, and I think I described this before, but the reality is everything changed. It wasn't about the vanity, arrogance, or the narcissism of seeing your own reflection. There was somethi
