Artists That Inspire Me 13Welcome to all reading this journal my regular feature of the work of others.Artists That Inspire Me 132 years ago in Personal More Like This
Below are the artists whose work has inspired me since my last journal entry. The selections made by no means cover everyone that deserves to be here. In time many many more will follow, as with each passing week I discover so many more talented creative people on here, that one journal entry could never do them all justice. So many of you out there are producing work that leaves me in awe, and it would be unfair of me not to acknowledge the creators of work that has caught my eye and imagination. This journal features some of the more recent works that have stopped me in my tracks. They are presented in no particular order, they are simply a selection that I believe need to be seen and acknowledged by others for their beauty, artistry and ability. I would encourage you all to visit each artist featured as I truly believe that in the DA community we learn so much from each other.

So my trip to South Korea is over since some days already. It feels it was short actually, but I surely enjoyed my time there I took an important amount of pictures and I decided to upload some of them here if any of you feels like taking a look at them; Pictures are not worth the actual thing but it's good to take anyway :')
One of my main occupations there was to visit many palaces and temples, thing that I enjoyed a lot and especially when they brought me in particular ambiances and atmospheres I've never been in before. This surely was a nice and interesting experience for me ^^

This goes to all of my fellow Lesbians&GaysI hate falling for "straight" people. I hate that everyone depends on gender. Honestly, who gives a flying fuck about gender? GENDER. DOESN'T. MATTER. Screw those labels; Lesbian, gay, bisexual. You don't label on love! If a girl happens to like another girl, or a guy happens to like another guy, so let it be! It's only love. There is no shame there. Love is love! What matters is you love someone for who they are, not for what body parts they have. Are they really going to let the fact that they have the same body parts bother them, and think it's wrong? They are only boobs. It's only a vagina. It's only a penis. What's the big deal? If you want to reproduce, do Surrogacy. I don't know about any of you, but I look for a great personality. I don't care what gender you are, I just want a nice little relationship. Is that too much to ask? Ugh.This goes to all of my fellow Lesbians&Gays3 years ago in Personal More Like This

This journal is meant to be satire.
It uses sarcasm and irony to expose the double-standards, hypocrisy, and outright ridiculousness of the arguments made by opponents of gay marriage.
For anyone that wants to counter with: "But the bible says...!" I link you to my essay:
The Morality of Homosexuality
50 Best reasons Gay Marriage is wrong!
1. Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, birth control and air conditioning.
2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their p

So I started doing this thing on Tumblr where, for a limited time, I will give one fact about my characters for every * I receive. So far, well... there have been quite a few curious individuals. XDDD Normally I'd keep this sort of thing under lock and key on Tumblr, but because people were getting so anxious to know some fun facts, I decided it might be fun to lower the blinders for a while and give the info to all of you as well~!
I will say that I've yet to respond to all requests, and I'm no longer going to accept any more after these ones are over and done with. So I'll be sure to update this journal with the rest of them at a later time. XD
But for now, enjoy~! <3

The Echo chamber dilemmaThe promise of the Internet was that unlimited information and experiences would draw us together. But instead it seems to have driven us apart.The Echo chamber dilemma2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years I've observed this behavior but haven't been able to vocalize it correctly. Originally I called the behavior of collective opinions as "the hive mentality" of the Internet. But that wasn't exactly right and I often got called out on it. The most prominent example was when I made a comic about a guy disagreeing with opinions and being shouted at till he remained quiet, eventually fading into the background with everyone else. The consensus of that comic was that if you disagree with someone you aren't bullied into not speaking, but instead are free to go someplace else where people who do agree with you exist. And you know what? That wasn't what i was trying to convey, but is sadly true. The Internet is not a hive mind. It's many tiny pocket echo chambers of mutual agreements.
And this is becoming a growing problem, I think, because n

I joined dA in early 2005 for writing. I did literally nothing with photography or any other art form. I couldn't compose a decent photograph if my life depended on it, if you read my recent post Photography: a love story you'll understand where the photography came from. I didn't have anything to do with it until 2010.
When I came here I found the literature community and it quickly became my home on dA. It's my roots to this site and where I fell in love, with not only community the people as well.
No matter how much or little I write, what art form becomes my "main focus" or anything else, the lit. community will still be the core of what brought and kept me here. Consider it my 'f

What did the wolf do wrong?What did the wolf do wrong?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The majority consider the wolf to be viscous cold blooded killer who's only goal is to kill. Ranchers, the government, and fairy tales would have you convinced of this. What many do not realize or forget that mans best friend, you dog, is a straight descendent of this savage killer. It is true, wolves can have a mean face full of teeth. So does the family dog. But ahhh, there is one major difference between a dog and a wolf. We have been successful in becoming that dogs alpha and have domesticated them. Im sure over the course of a few hundred years, even the most wild animal can be trained to do what you want at will.
We are in a time of repetition. In the days of old ranchers went out and hunted the wolf and if they couldnt, they demanded the government to do so. That is precisely what is going on today. The wolf could be found on the entire North American continent before it was decided to eradicate this pest. Where they failed is that without the wolf, the coyote,

Ten Tips for Photographing Food1) Set the Table...Ten Tips for Photographing Food2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In the image above, claremanson not only photographs something that looks enticingly delicious and creative, but she has additionally set the scene. She's made up the 'table' so to speak, so that it compliments and even enhances the Food that she's photographing. Looking carefully at your setting is a fantastic way of making your Food look good and unique. It's cheap too, just look at using glasses, sometimes with liquid in them, colourful tablecloths, napkins or any other items that might suit your image. Within cookery books these days, images that 'set the scene' are becoming increasingly more popular and widely used.
2) Play with your Food...

Back to Basics Photography - Understanding RawdSLR cameras and most bridge cameras have the option to shoot in raw, but what exactly is it and what are the benefits? Let me attempt to explain.Back to Basics Photography - Understanding Raw2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A camera raw file contains all the data that is captured when the shutter button is pressed whereas a JPEG is compressed and a lot of the data is lost. They are often called digital negatives as they serve the same purpose as the negatives in film photography; they are not ready to be used as the final image, but hold all the information and data needed to produce one. This all means that you are left with a higher image quality which also allows you to have more control and manipulate more parameters than a JPEG. All of the metadata is also still in tact, meaning that the original state can always be referred back to if needed.
So, surely you want to see the difference, right? Well you're in luck.

The so-called recovery plan for the Mexican Grey Wolves is not working. There are only 59 remaining Mexican Grey Wolves in Arizona and New Mexico. They are facing extinction!
Mexican Wolves or "Lobos" are the smallest, rarest and most distinct subspecies of western wolves, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, for no good reason, lists them as just another population of grey wolves. These wolves even have a distinct DNA.

Photography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISOHeader created by TouchedDPhotography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISO2 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
