My first time-lapse projectFinally i could do all the processing and work and here is my first time-lapse video of Aurora. All material was recorded in Jyväskylä - Finland which is actually not the best place for aurora watch. Still i could make enough collection for a full 8 minutes video. First scene is from March 2013 which was my first aurora watch ever. The rest are recorded between august and november 2013. Soon i will be back with another time-lapse of sunset and sunrises mostly.My first time-lapse project1 year ago in Personal More Like This

'Demon's Due' DefinedI continually update this entry each time I post a new page of the story. So, it frequently has new information, but may not be worth your time unless you are hopelessly lost in this story or you are looking for dirt you can use against me... After receiving a warning/error message that this journal entry was too long for DA, I split it into two sections, one for the explanation of the project, and one for the fun, supplementary stuff. The second one, "'Demon's Due' Plus" is here: http://faile35.deviantart.com/journal/44054408/'Demon's Due' Defined7 years ago in Personal More Like This

Through The Lens #3 ~ The Validity of Abstraction“There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.”Through The Lens #3 ~ The Validity of Abstraction1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
- Ansel Adams
When photography was first created it was used primarily for portraits. It was not yet mobile and therefore could not yet be used in genres like landscape or journalism. Portrait painters at the time felt that photography was not legitimately artistic, and this spurred the "Pictorialist" photographic movement. In defense of their art, Pictorialists depicted subjects with soft visual effects and artistic poses. At the beginning of the twentieth century a man named Paul Strand countered the "Pictorialist" movement stating that it was too apologetic, and did not take advantage of the new medium.
Paul Strand was an American Modernist photographer leading the drive to establish photography as a valid form of fine art. However, he did not believe that all forms of photography held artistic value. His argument was based on the idea - central to modernist art, of 'trut

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 try1 year 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

"For outside you have to creep on the ground, and everything is green instead of yellow. But here I can creep smoothly on the floor, and my shoulder just fits in that long smooch around the wall, so I cannot lose my way." - The Yellow Wallpaper, Charlotte Perkins Gilman
"I am interested in the way people relate to space. The best way to do this is to depict their interactions to the boundaries of these spaces." - Francesca Woodman
"In Woodman's work, the question of space serves both a formal challenge and a psychological condition, and the relationship of the body to space became one of her major preoccupations." - The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Woman, Corey Keller
"There is ground for taking the house as a tool for analysis of the human soul. The corner is a haven that ensures us one of the things we prize most highly -- immobility." - The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard
