How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:How to be a good subject for your photographer!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).
This completely breaks my creative flow

Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

but what can i do? untie the limbs
and remove the gag

feel the rivers start emptying

pay attention -
your heart was a foreign body, rejected
your hands, your hands had no shame,

There are struggling artist on here who are more creative and draw better than you. They don't do fan art out of Dignity. These artist also do it for the ability to draw, You are plainly here for a Dollar and nothing less, It is almost sickening how someone like you can appear and instantly do this while creative people with original ideas, Unlike you, Are struggling.

Keywords on deviantART: a guideThis guide is based on a project written for an 8th semester course in Knowledge Organising Systems and Processes at the Royal Danish School of Library and Information Science.Keywords on deviantART: a guide2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The project was based on image indexing literature and included an investigation of keywords from 107 deviations from deviantART. The results of this investigation was compared with previous studies of what types of keywords users add to their images and what types of keywords is used in image searches.
The guide begins with a very brief summary of the recommendations with examples. Afterwards follows a more thorough guide for those who are interested in the reasoning behind the recommendations and some of the results of our project.
Add keywords that describe:
What your deviation is.
e.g. photograph painting poem plushie necklace animation

It's going to be rare that I make a brand new journal entry for The Alley, because honestly everywhere on DA, contests are running ALL THE TIME! So please be sure to check up on this entry to see what contests are going down!
Here are some contests that you might want to go ahead and have a look. I want to encourage those of you who feel a little intimidated by entering in contest/challenges to take a chance and enter. No one's going to bite your head off for giving it your best (if someone does let me know, cuz no one messes with my Gimp-Stars ). Enter, and don't be discouraged If you don't win, it's okay. The important thing is that you're moving outside your comfort zone and improving your craft.
If there's a contest you want listed in The Alley, let me know!
