5 Reasons you should learn photography manually!I once met someone who was determined not to use a D-SLR until he had mastered a Manual Camera first. I thought he was a bit stuck up, maybe a little arrogant of his own abilities too...but actually, he was right. You will not truly value Photography until you go right back to basics and learn how the legendary pros did it first. So here are five top reasons why you should teach yourself photography on a manual camera!5 Reasons you should learn photography manually!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1) It's Cheap
Many people think that Film Photography is expensive. If you're going all out and developing your own photographs rather than taking the to a developer then it might well be expensive! However manual cameras are a dying breed and you can pick up most of the bits and pieces you need to get started, quite cheaply.
2) Manual Focus
It's the simplest reason, but it's so true. Manual Focus will save your life. Learning how to focus your camera the hard way will make

And I'm back for the feature... oh my, I wasn't here for almost 2 weeks Sorry cuz of that, but I have to make ton of stuff for college, so I probably won't be here that much in next upcoming weeks. So I hope you can also wait for my new stuff which I draw (a little slowly...I paused process cuz of school ).
But I also have great news for you. One of my newest drawings which I still draw, I record. So soon you'll be able to see on our YouTube account whole process how I draw my paintings. From sketch till finished piece. But I guess I'll have to post it in few parts (cuz I already draw it more than 14 hours and I just started ).
And here is the feature. I featured some amazing character and environment pieces by great artists all around dA. If you like these works, then fav them... and you can also fav this article and help these artists, so they can get more attention. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this feature

There are many false friends, but there are only some good friends. Friends you can rely on.
I also found some very nice friends on deviantART I owe my biggest thanks.
But all I can do is giving our big hugs and some features.
So there you go (I chose these four, because I really love you all!)
You take such beautiful pictures and I am really excited to meet you in October!
You are one of the most inspiring photographers in the world to me. So young, but already so talented.
We already met two times and I feel like I can tell you the world. Our passion fuses us, and that's a great feeling.

A Few Things You Need To Remember.
- You’re getting this for free. If you’re going to complain and be picky about the outcome then you need to commission someone, otherwise it’s not fair.
- If you’re doing an art-trade always keep your part of the deal. (Or at least attempt to.)
- You might want to make a list of what you will and won’t draw (ie: won’t draw up to a certain number of characters, Graphic nudity, etc.)
- Here’s a list of icons you can use to show your status: http://need-moar-plz-llamas.deviantart.com/journal/Open-closed-signs-219414365
- If you're doing an Art-trade you should realise that [maybe] you're asking too much for what you've done in return.
(ex: say you've given them a sketch you've completed in a minute and they've taken days to complete theirs.)

StoryYou enter a world called Eden, an illusory world free from the confines and cycles of time and space.Story3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Perhaps it spoke to you in a dream,
Or maybe you received a letter,
Or maybe someone came to whisk you away.
In the end, how you got there is of no importance.
What matters is that Eden knows your deepest desires and strives to fulfill it. When you arrive in Eden, a part of the whole world will be accommodated to create your paradise, whether it be a golden city of riches, a garden of the most sublime beauty, a town that grants you fame and adoration, a community offering forgiveness, or even a place where loved ones come back. The possibilities are only limited by one's own desires.
However, with more people entering Eden, the realm has been getting increasingly unstable. If this problem of conflicting desires continues, then Eden itself will completely collapse. There can be one prevailing paradise in Eden, and the visitors must fight for the dominion of Eden and to protect their par

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.
