.Portrait photography is not about making people look beautiful. Or showing perfect skin. Or sparkling eyes. Or hourglass silhouette. It is about seeing the beauty in them. And showing it to the world. Where there is no beauty in their soul, there is no beauty on their face..3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So thank you, Photography, for truly teaching me how to make a difference between good and bad people.
And from now on, I'm taking the photos I want to take. And no one will ever take my passion away from me.

one) writing your heart out
open up a word document, a fresh page in your notebook wherever you scribble your thoughts
and ramble your way to 750 words.
[ feel free to ramble over 750 if you happen to strike gold! ]
take whatever is in your heart, or your head, or your stomach and write it out.
just keep writing and writing until you reach your goal.
it doesn't need to be the next masterpiece, just write and let it all out.
two) take a colour
and write about it from its brightest most vivid shade
fading into its dullest form
like a bruise.
try and work on your descriptions
three) 500 words or more
four) free range.

words flowing again
- dormant, for now
- the very last time
- blue and greens
- "it got the better of him

Your parents walking in your room in the morning to only find a dead body. They'll try their hardest to not think negative, and to just think that you're fooling around. Then they'll start shaking you. Why aren't you breathing? They'll be broken.
Many tears. More tears than you ever shed. Was it them? Were they the reason you did this? More tears.
Every day. Every night. Every single second of every day.
More guilt. What about your best friends? They're not going to care. Right? No. What's the first thing that will go through their mind when your principal comes in and tells the class that you're not alive. While your best friend sits there in tears. That girl that you'd smile at but never talk to? She's now crying. The boy who used to kick you under the table just to annoy you? He'll be shocked. He'll be devastated. He'll blame himself. What a

Tell us a bit about yourself, Nelleke! How did you get into photography and why?
Photography is a (big) hobby of mine, I’m not a professional photographer. I started photography seven years ago, just a little while after I joined deviantART. I used to draw a lot back then and that’s why I joined this site. I didn’t care much for photography, I cared about the fantasy genre: Photography was too ‘real’ for my taste. Drawing took me a LOT of time though… I’m a nitpicker, and they took me ages to complete, although unfortunately that wasn’t very visible in my drawings. I had gotten a small compact camera for my birthday, for taking holiday pictures. At some point I got so frustrated at drawing taking me so long that I tried taking some photos. I noticed how fast it was to take a picture of things

What do you guys think?
:.Update.: wow lol ok let me just state that modern Sonic is not getting replaced permanently. Read here http://www.usgamer.net/articles/whats-next-for-sonic-the-hedgehog-and-friends I know Sonic Boom games or tv show does not interest many, obviously because this was meant to target younger audiences where as the original modern Sonic is for the older ones. but some fans can like both or choose one over the other. That's perfectly fine but please respect one another and let them be exited for this. So no, your childhood won't die nor modern Sonic lol! There's still going to be modern Sonic games but right now we have to be patient (hopefully by his 25th anniversary but right now we can count Sm4sh bros, Mario and Sonic 2016 Rio Olympics and Sonic Runners app for now) Let's not forget we still have a movie confirmed for modern Sonic being de

I've created this account 5 years ago, but I didn't start actively using it as I do now until 3 years ago. So... 3 years.
What does your username mean?
Oh geez, okay, so when I created this account, I was creating a large Digimon Fan Fiction series. (Don't bother trying to find it here or on my FanFiction account as I never published it.) I had it so it was my friends and my siblings as the next Digidestined; I assigned us all crests and Digimon, and mine was the Crest of Light. I also made it so there was a Ninth and Tenth Digidestined, and the Ninth Digidestined had the Crest of Faith. The Ninth Digidestined was JoJo McDodd from Horton Hears A Who! as he was my obsession back when I wrote the story. (Yeah, my series was this large, poorly written FanFiction with crazy cross-overs. I keep cringing at all the cliches and poor grammar whenever I skim through it... :iconexcaliburfaceplz W

Yo neckbeardsBefore you spout off that science fiction is a "man's" genre, as someone literally just did to me an hour ago, you might want to educate yourself on the genre's actual history.Yo neckbeards2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein and The Last Man all the way back in the 1800's, effectively inventing our modern concept of "mad science" and the "post apocalypse" subgenre, respectively. It was her success that sparked an explosion of fantastical literature with scientific and technological themes, later dubbed "science fiction."
Later, Charlotte Perkins Gilman's wildly successful "The Yellow Wallpaper," hailed as a groundbreaking work of feminism, sparked its own wave of "weird horror" and is cited by H.P. Lovecraft as one of his biggest inspirations, his very writing style practically lifted from Gilman's.
The trends kicked off by Mary Shelley and her imitators eventually grew directly into the pulp science fiction boom of the 1930's, and a great deal of those authors were also women. Nobody kn

It really doesn't matter which one you are using, a wooden #2 is really all you need. A mechanical can be nice starting if you really want that sharp point but after a while you realize a sharp point is not always what you want. A clutch is cool too but it's really just a wooden pencil without the wood. I mostly use my clutch, well just because I bought it but there are plenty of greats on youtube and else where that just use a good old wooden #2
You're just starting, do you really need a box full of 2h's-8b's? No, no you don't. Why would you? You haven't learned anything yet and a simple #2 HB is really all you need. Us
