Creative Week: Giveaway + IntroductionWhat is Creative Week?Creative Week: Giveaway + Introduction2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Every year, I take a week away from my job to do nothing but photoshoots, in order to challenge myself and improve my skills as a photographer. Despite working for the best company in the world, my career is not in photography. This sometimes makes it difficult to find the right kind of time and inspiration to capture what I want. My annual 'Creative Week,' is a way for me to do what I love without the worry of heading into work the next day. I can focus on my creativity, and nothing more. Every year I make sure to up the ante, and this year I'll be working with a lot more talent than I have in the past, on bigger productions.
This is my third Creative Week, and similar to those in the past, I will be partnering with the wonderful Miki Sarroca (WingedInfinity). She will be serving as a make up artist, model, and she's done an incredible job of assisting me with organizing these shoots.

Fashion 101: Working with ModelsWelcome to the first edition of Fashion 101, a series of articles revolving around the art, business, and nuances of fashion photography brought to you by Fashion-Show. While some topics may be relevant only to the fashion industry, many of these articles can apply to multiple genres and art mediums, such as today's topic. As is customary with most of my articles, there will be a giveaway and discussion at the end!Fashion 101: Working with Models11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is a Model?
Simply put, a model is a person employed for the purpose of posing for an artist. This can be for a painter, sculptor, animator, photographer, etc. For the sake of this article, we will be looking at models for photography. We will also be further defining a model as someone who has agreed to pose or act for your photography project, versus a brief subject such as a person on the street.
Why Work With a Model?
A model brings a lot to the table for a photographer, particularly when it comes to b

near the place of your remains.
It grew into an oak; strong and rigid.

Hey there, friends! I'm doing another feature... Love doing them!
This time, I'll post not only manips, but some photographs, too.
Oh, and if you were wondering the reason why I don't upload any artworks since some days, it's just because I have an art-block. Everytime I start creating something, I don't like it and erase it. And don't have any new ideas... I hope this soon goes away...
Also, this week I start with the final tests and exams at highschool, so I'm studying a lot... Wish me luck! Studies are getting so hard... I have to read lots of things... I need summer now... Only two months left
Hola amigos! Estoy haciendo otra feature... ¡Disfruto mucho haciéndolas!
Esta vez, voy a exponer no solo manipulaciones, sino también algunas fotografías hermosas.

UPDATE: It is UP!
~The group will let you submit your entry to the Monthly Event folder then move it to the Featured folder. That is optional, however.
I have always wanted to start one of these art collabs! But I never knew what the theme should be, Until now! So Imma take this chance to thank the group's generous staff for giving me the opportunity! Again.
This is the League of Legends 2013 Art Collab! For those of you who don't know what an art collab is, I refer you to these amazing past examples:
Anniversary Contest: you are FREE to create!ThemedGroup has been into business since August 11th, 2013. To celebrate our first year of activity properly, we thought it would be cool to hold an Anniversary Contest.Anniversary Contest: you are FREE to create!11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Here are the details:
You Are FREE To Create
Just like the title suggests, you are free to create, which means that you can enter with any kind of photo or photomanipulation work - any subject, any theme - as long as the piece is your original work. Feel free to go out and experiment, and don't forget to read the rules carefully before submitting your deviation of choice to the contest's folder, because it is a free theme contest, but we want to encourage you to create and submit new art, so there is a catch...
You must be a member of ThemedGroup to participate.
It would be nice if you could this journal and help spread the word about the contest.

Again I had a "small" break from DeviantArt. Mostly the lack of time . Besides, I noticed that the use of this website is no longer the same without a premium membership. The greatest convenience, of course, is multiple uploading photos... Well, unfortunately, I cannot afford to buy myself a membership, so only remains for me to spend the ordinary account until a good-natured man decides to sponsor me a premium membership or until I accumulate enough to buy it... (and it won't be soon...)

27Shoot, its that time of the year again where for unknown reasons random people start saying 'Happy Birthday' to me. Yes it is true, I am another year closer to death (Ry is really optimistic sometimes isnt he?). WELL its all good, I mean I just wanna take a minute to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday, today has been quite pleasant actually. Received many gifts from fellow Ryceballs, some nice messages, and I did a little Livestream that I think people quite enjoyed and had a good laugh. All going well so far. So yes, 27 years down, what a life! Well since today is my special day, I have decided to take you guys for a ride in the Life of Ry journey, what was Ry doing 5 years ago? 10 years ago? 20 years ago?!

People and Portraits ExposedSince the People and Portrait Galleries on deviantART are so expansive and vast, I get a lot of Daily Deviation suggestions on an almost daily basis for just those sub-categories. Of course, 3wyl and I can't feature them all - so this is what this article is about. Every fortnight I try and choose a selection of the images that have been sent in and share them in a feature. This week the suggestions come courtesy of DSSiege11, xthumbtakx , Minato-Kushina, RoxaneLys, BokehLight, ejrotsih, AgonizingSwordfish, musicismylife10027, ihamo, Nazrin-Polad and SabakuNoShi.People and Portraits Exposed1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Do keep the suggestions coming - send them via note to either myself or 3wyl. As most of you know, 3wyl and I take care of most of the sub-categories of the People and Portrait Gallery for Photography. However there are a few specialist CVs to send some specific suggestions to! Check out the full team <a wytiwyg="1" href="http://communityrelations.deviantart.com/blog/27409506/#B">
