5 Fun photography projects to tryPhoto projects are great for experimenting with photographic styles, see what you like, take risks and learn new things that you never thought about. Some of them can be fairly simple, but inspirational and others can be a tad more complicated and require more (free) time. But a successful photo project engages viewers to want to see more and to discover the world through your eyes.5 Fun photography projects to try2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A good photo project doesn't require expensive equipment, all you need is a camera and a well-thought concept that would make sense as a whole when viewing the series of images you shot.
Also, they are fun to create!
1. The Speech bubble project
This is a great project if you like street photography and want to do something fun including it. The tagline would be: Do you ever wonder what people are thinking about when you pass them on the street?
You can do this by creating several speech bubbles and placing them in an area where you know a lot of people would pass by (eg. the

Thank you for taking your time with the interview for AllArtSupport.
AllArtSupport Hello Alex, please tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get into the world of photography?
alexgphoto (Just to clarify any confusion – Alex is short for Alexandra )
I started taking pictures in 2012, about a year and a half ago.
Ever since early childhood, one of my favorite things to do was just observe – myself, nature, people and the interaction between them all – I’ve always found it fascinating to be a witness of everything that happens around me. Art, music and poetry have always been a part of my life as well and were a great inspiration. Until recently I used to draw a lot – at first trying to make the drawings as realistic as possible, then moving to a much more surreal point of view. During the recent years, I have developed an i

Hey dear watchers,
Here's a new XPS Countdown version! As a reminder: You are not forced to update! It is your own choice on how many updates you actually download and use.
- Yepp we thought it'd be kinda fun to have a few small versions before XPS 11!
1. Bone axis can be visualized. The Config Menu has a new option to display a coordinate cross along with the feature to turn on/off x-ray.
2. The ground plane can be customized by expanding the directory "data\Floor". These variations can then be activated with "Config->swap ground".
3. The Control window isn't as wide anymore.

Your the best friend I've ever had in this site,No one could replace that.We both known each for more than 8 months,and I really enjoyed every single memory with you.
I'm happy to find a friend like you that I can be myself,it's not like any others which is awkward.
I feel touched from the birthday gifts you made,and the things you did for me as a friend..I never really thought I would meet someone as amazing like you...
Even though we have 12 hours time different but that doesn't mean this friendship can't continue.
I can't even imagine where I would be today if it weren't for you who have given me a heart full of joy.♥♥
Your art is wonderful and astounding!I love how you put your effort into it!
I'm always jealous of how your adoptables are getting people's attention,I mean your creativity are just so amazing and creative!

climbs into bed with me and
i go to war with myself -
words i do not want sit on the tip
of my tongue, so i bite the whole
thing off - crimson droplets fall
from the sky, and i start bleeding
rain - dead babies, their heartbeats
slipping through the cracks in my
floorboards - kettles abandoning
pots and then finding that neither
can function properly - white sheets,
pillowcases, walls and white faces -
a rabid cat clawing at the inside of
my temple, let me out - krill in the
bellies of whales, their hearts like
empty lockets - suffocating in the
silver lining - secrets giggling like
children in my mind, a game of hide
and seek i don't think i want to win -
a lamb frolicks around the body of a
lion and i reap something i never
even sowed in the first place

Does your work from today, look closer to your initial goal than your work from last week? (this needs to be both in skill and idea.)
Good skills: Honing your technique, training you muscle memory, being more knowledgeable about your tools and art rules. With art rules I mean: Perspective, form, light, texture, composition.
Good ideas: Storytelling, characteristics, charm, emotion and design. Not just making things look polished but also convey something more, something that brings it to life and speaks to pe
how to self harmBefore you self harm in any way, you should probably know what you're getting into.Before you make that cut, please keep in mind that you will find the pain release and blood strangely addictive. You may think to yourself that you'll be able to control it, that you won't let it get out of hand. You may think that you can just stick to a few small, shallow cuts here and there that won't be deep and that will heal quickly and easily.But you're wrong.You can't control it, it's impossible to control. It controls you. It's an addiction.The cuts will get deeper, they'll scar. They'll take weeks to months to heal and years for the scars to actually begin to fade. You'll find that soon, you depend on it. You can't go more than a few days without cutting. You'll go crazy as your skin itches and burns, your hands shake, your head pounds, your vision goes blurry as you try to keep your mind off of it, try to hold back from giving in. But you will.

The goal for this contest is simple; create a piece of artwork of your favorite Tim Burton couple in honor of Valentine's Day. This couple can be "canon" - as in the couple was in the original storyline, or it can be a couple that you wish had ended up together. These couples can be from the same Tim Burton movie or can be characters taken from two separate Tim Burton movies. However, the two characters must both be Tim Burton characters. Entries with fancharacters, OCs, or self-inserts will not be accepted. Good luck everyone, be creative, and have fun!
Please follow the rules set up by deviantart & the club.
