House of Hades News!!!Holy mother of gods I just found the summary for HoH and I'm crying so hard i need this bookHouse of Hades News!!!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

Try submitting again, if you missed out last journal - there was technical issues in accepting submissions in February - but fixed now!!!
The Beach, The Waves, The Trees
That could mean anything, it doesn't have to be a theme, so get creative and try to stand out. It can be a sunny day at the beach, or have people playing volleyball at the beach. Or maybe even your favourite palm tree. The art piece you do doesn't have to have all 3, but if you want it to, go ahead, just make sure to include at least one of them. Extra points if it's original and creative.
The art piece you submit can be drawn for the competition, or a previous artwork in your gallery.
Urban Exploration #8For those who haven't undertaken 'Urbex' before, it's hard to imagine the feeling of elation, mystery, suspense and a little fear as you venture into an unknown place. I tried to explain it for this fortnights article, but I couldn't get the words out. Urban Exploration is best captured by the photography that comes out as a result of the venturing. However I did stumble across this article which perfectly and quite succinctly sums up how it feels to venture out there to places that so very few have been before.Urban Exploration #82 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Being able to show off the places that have been forgotten is an amazing gift to have. Take for example, the image above. It's the inside of a submarine, a hunter killer, which was built in 1967 and used for training s

Back to Basics Photography - CompositionLately I've seen quite a few photos that have potential, but need some work. Composition is one of the most important parts to taking any photo (and making any piece of art really) and so I thought I'd share a few basic rules and tips. The word composition simply means 'putting together' and so, with any piece of art, it's how the piece is put together. With a bit of practice while keeping these tips in mind, you can create a more impacting, pleasing to the eye piece of work that will draw the viewer in and keep them interesting.Back to Basics Photography - Composition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You could crop your images afterwards when you get them onto the computer, but it'd be lovely to have a great image right off the boot, right? By keeping in mind the things below, you'll be well on your way to taking better photos. And don't forget, it's always better to know the rules before you start break them A few tips before we start;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.
Look at each element and how it impacts the overall co
Masters of Photography part IIWilliam Eugene Smith (December 30, 1918 – October 15, 1978) was an American photojournalist known for his refusal to compromise professional standards and his brutally vivid World War II photographs.Masters of Photography part II3 years ago in Personal More Like This
He began his career by taking pictures for two local newspapers. He moved to New York City and began work for Newsweek and became known for his incessant perfectionism and thorny personality. Smith was fired from Newsweek for refusing to use medium format cameras and joined Life Magazine in 1939. He soon resigned from Life, too. Smith joined the Magnum photo agency in 1955. There he started his project to document Pittsburgh. This project was supposed to take him three weeks, but spanned three years and tens of thousands of negatives. It was too large to ever be shown, although a series of book-length photo essays were eventually produced.
In January 1972, Smith was attacked by Chisso employees near Tokyo, in an attempt to stop him from further publi
