Deviation pages are one of the most visited areas of deviantART. With hundreds of millions of deviations to view, and 65 million people browsing the site each month, we want to ensure that navigating deviation pages is as seamless as possible, allowing visitors to get the most of their viewing experience.
Powered by data and feedback from our logged-out tests, we're now ready to test new vs. old deviation pages to deviantART's logged-in audience. Testing two similar, yet different, versions of our deviation page will allow us to
Fear of CreativityA rather unfortunate, yet commonplace problem amongst creative minds is one of fear: fear of being creative, fear of making something that could be terrible, fear of rejection, fear of judgment, fear of failure. This root fear seems driven by every artist's desire to make great work. After all, that is why creative people createto build or define beauty as they see fit. So when inspiration strikes, there is both a drive to create and an element of fear holding back. The apparent duality of this situation is actually multifaceted.Fear of Creativity4 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, there is the general fear of failure. Nobody wants to fail, creatively or otherwise, even though great minds have shown us that failure is necessary for improvement. This fear of failure manifests itself as hesitation and self-doubt, ultimately causing procrastination or just a delayed start, or even destroying the urge to create altogether.
Secondly, the fear of judgment. Fearing what others might think of the work, fearing comments of negativity
How to become a photographer.A photographer need attention, patience and curiosity. We call this set the maximum state of alertness, willingness to act but with inner peace. It is a physical and mental concentration, alertness, vigilance, the ability to instantly move to action.How to become a photographer.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is that the photographer has to work with the ultra-small segments of time, most often in the area of 1/200 second, and even 1/8000. It's amazing that our brains can work and respond in such time frames.
So a good shot is almost always a chain of "saw-pressed the trigger," but "analyzed the dynamics, pulled the trigger."
With experience, you can analyze not only simple motion path but such complex processes as facial expressions
This state is a core skill of any photographer, and not related to his outside shooting temperament. Nervous and noisy photographer, in the moments when it is necessary will be in the same state: calm, focus and passion. And a lazy and apathetic person can be successful not onl

Photography Lesson Number 1I responded to a cry for help by a group looking for contributors for articles on photography and shit but soon realised they bored the tits off me before I even started. SOOOO....I've decided to write my own photography lessons every now & then and post them in my journal. It is, of course, written in my very own inimitable style.....Photography Lesson Number 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
“Everyone has to start somewhere”.
“There’s always a beginning, middle and end”.
There are lots of clichés about starting something new but I think my favourite is this –
“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few”.
I think it sums it up the best what it’s like when starting in digital photography. Believe me when I tell you that really…it is a piece of piss. Simples. Easy-peasy. Let me put your mind at ease and point out that thes
Photography Lesson Number 3LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHYPhotography Lesson Number 31 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ever been at one of those parties you didn’t want to go to because you knew it was going to be full of people who think they are (or in your case actually are) better than you? YES OF COURSE YOU HAVE. The sort of party where you’ll ask that person standing next to the hummus “what do you do for a living?” and they reply smugly “I’m a landscape photographer”. Well read this page and be a fucking landscape photographer too. It’s like landscape gardening for those with weak knees.
First things first. What is the most important thing about landscape photography? Have something fucking cool to look at of course. It is NOT landscape photography if you go and take a photo of your back yard. People want to see rivers, trees, mountains. They want to see rolling hills, reflective lakes and dramatic skies. SO GO SOMEWHERE THAT LOOKS NICE. It really is

Who is ready for year two of LNH~HARPG
Under new management, this year will be a bit different from last years run. As the previous founder gave me nothing to work with for Y2 I had to do the brainstorming alone, and it took a bit longer than expected (and I apologize for that).
This year we are hoping for a more stress-less and fun-oriented run. People will not be kicked out of the run for late or incomplete images, and we encourage collabs, digital/traditional art, and photomanipulations!
So, this is the basic gyst of Y2..
Pangaea Isles is a cluster of Islands located closely to one another. On the largest, main island is where my stables (White Blood Stables) is located.

One of our staff members (Cain Calvert) set out to explore The Red Zone on his Disturbed Nightmare. However, he didnt make it very far. Upon entering, an invisible f

The Effectiveness of SimplicityI like to draw and look at rather complex works of illustration. Perpectiveful pinnacles of technical achievement, etc. However, I watch a good number of artists who use simplicity to great effect. Whether it be representing more complex objects and figures as simpler forms, or just a philosophy of "less is more," I can easily be just as impressed (if not more so) with the understanding and implementation of simplicity as I get with more complex works.The Effectiveness of Simplicity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's a short feature of some examples of works I've seen recently that got me good. Enjoy!
This work by radsechrist looks complex (such as the third image which I'll be talking about a bit here,) and to an extent it is -- however upon closer inspection, the actual details and construction is quite simplified, even crude. And it's fantastic. The artist shows such a vast understanding of how and where to place detail that matters,
