But first of all: What is macro photography?
Macro photography - what is it about?

But is that really all that matters? It is a common fact that many people believe that macro photography is photography which refers to life size

In the event of this group's two week anniversary I thought that it was time for a competition in order to get this group started properly!
:iconpervycielCiel is excited!)
The theme of the competition is going to beee, wait for it, music (I were planning to come up with some awesome and catchy name, but my creative abilities just died, so music it is)!
You are supposed to chose a song (it could be any type of song from any genre), and the title of this song has to be the title of your entry- and your submission has to be inspired by that song! If any of that was unclear, just send me a note or leave a comment!

5 Fundamental Skills (by Bobby Myers)5 Fundamental Skills Every Artist Should Master5 Fundamental Skills (by Bobby Myers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(by Bobby Myers)
As an artist, your job is to immerse your viewers into a world that you have built and guide them safely through it. Artists have much in common with storytellers. Storytellers have several tricks that they use to keep their readers coming back for more. Like storytellers, artists can use similar tricks to help them produce more compelling artwork. In this article, we will explain 5 fundamental skills that every artist should master. Let's take a look!
The most important aspect of art to me personally is the composition. It sets the stage for everything else. This is your way to guide and lead the viewer to make them feel as if they are actually in your picture. If this part of the process is not created and controlled properly, everything else can and probably will fal

Donatello's podcastWARNING-there is language (inappropriate language) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8MNEYn1Df8Donatello's podcast1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I thought it was pretty funny, so basically it's the cast of tmnt 2012 just talking about what they think of the show and what's it like to be casting. well I just wanted to share this with who ever reads this
again this does have some inappropriate language (by language I mean they kind of talk a bit.....sexual and just plain inappropriate) so if you can't handle seeing your favorite character (Donnie, April, Leo, Raph, Mikey, and the shredder) saying some awkward words then don't watch this......but I still think it's kind of funny

I've recently noticed that while I'm still receiving many wonderful messages from watchers; some of those newer comments contain phrases that I find quite disconcerting.
While I enjoy receiving helpful critique, I must say; commentaries featuring dialogue such as 'the feels', doesn't really help my cause to improve, as a writer/and or stamp maker!
In addition, I find that I have a growing dislike for flattering comments, which don't include the commenter having added the work/s they've commented on, to th
