Friday night Specials v1.1 - The comebackFriday night Specials v1.1 - The comeback2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It was Friday, the 13th of March 2009 when the idea of featuring every Friday the Yard submissions that I liked more, came to my mind. Since then, this weekly feature became a habit to me and there are very few Fridays that I didn't make it. When I took the position of dA's Street Community Volunteer, I moved this feature from the Yard where I used to post it and relaunched it in my personal account, this time featuring images from all over dA, regardless if they had been submitted to the Yard, or not. Now I feel it's time again for this weekly feature, to move back where it started. To the Yard Street Photography Group. The most hospitable place for a Street Photographer.
The first Friday night's specials scored 34 pageviews. Go ahead, pay it a visit. http://the-yard-collective.deviantart.com/journal/Friday-night-s-specials-
Some General Tips for Selling your Photos...that we sometimes seem to forget.Some General Tips for Selling your Photos2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As a sports photographer, I'm actually a freelancer and I work independently for multiple teams. I do not work for a paper or a magazine and, as a result, my gear is neither supplied nor insured by them. Not only do I foot the entire bill for very expensive equipment, but I'm responsible for repairs, and the gas and the car or the airfare and the hotel to get to any event I plan on shooting. I'm also responsible for my own medical care if I get sick or hurt, my own food, everything. It's expensive and if I don't make money off of this then all I end up with is an obscenely expensive hobby. Yes, my most significant clients are the teams, leagues, and publications...but guess what? They're not my bread and butter.

I don't understand bronies anymore.Brony: Someone who is explosively dissatisfied with every episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Each episode will be more hated than the last. This person will go to spectacular measures to point out every flaw, most of which are not even actual flaws, but extreme personal opinions, subject to the individual. They will desperately try to teach all of those around them to bash the show as they do. No self-respecting brony will ever say the slightest positive thing about an episode or it's content, nor, to any degree, appreciate the creators of the series. They will expect radical things of the creators, and be angry and pissy when it doesn't turn out as the fans decided it ought to. Bronies will always remind one another how awful and toyetic the newer seasons become, despite the following facts:I don't understand bronies anymore.7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Shortbread - sort of like marmite, you either hate it or love it. I have to be in the mood for it - but it is quite lovely. Generally, it originates from Scotland. Walkers Shortbread is actually Scotlands largest food exporter! Shortbread is fairly simple to make and aside from burning it, not much can go wrong. So if you've not tried making it before (or eating it) start now!

Of A Lesser God“So long as there shall exist, by reason of law and custom, a social condemnation which, in the midst of civilization, artificially creates a hell on earth, and complicates with human fatality a destiny that is divine; so long as the three problems of the century - the degradation of man by the exploitation of his labour, the ruin of women by starvation and the atrophy of childhood by physical and spiritual night are not solved; so long as, in certain regions, social asphyxia shall be possible; in other words and from a still broader point of view, so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, there should be a need for books such as this.”Of A Lesser God10 months ago in Personal More Like This

No Woman, No DriveNo Woman, No DriveNo Woman, No Drive1 year ago in Personal More Like This
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – A satirical video by a Saudi comedian has become a viral hit – drawing international attention to the kingdom's ban on women driving after many would-be protesters were stymied in their attempts to flout the ban this weekend because of a heavy police presence.
"No Woman, No Drive," a video set to the tune of Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry," has gotten 3.7 million views and counting since it was posted on Saturday, the day of the planned driving ban.
It's the most popular YouTube video in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries and has been tweeted from Europe to the U.S.
Described as "awesome" "funny" "rude" and "offensive" – the video has drawn the attention and a range of reactions from Saudi grandmothers
PE Prose Basics: Revise and EditProse Basics Week is winding down now and hopefully you've learned a lot from the brilliant past articles. But, there's more to writing than just getting that first draft done, isn't there? That's where the next big crucial step comes in: revision.PE Prose Basics: Revise and Edit11 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
The Art of Revising:
Revision is such a huge topic to cover, especially since there are many ways to go about it. You can do self-edits, which always are a good first step, or you can get outside revisions from peers. Both are good ideas to really get your work to be top notch. But, the big thing to remember is that there's more to just editing your work than cleaning up a few spelling and grammar mistakes. Revising also includes corrections to sentence flow, scenes, and sometimes overall plot. So, before we jump into some ways to edit, here are a few different terms of methods of editing that may be handy to know-- especially if you're asking a peer to help you with revisions.

Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.

Open Letter To A Fellow DeviantA fellow deviant very rightly pointed out a very valid observation on one of my images ..Open Letter To A Fellow Deviant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
QUOTE: nice story.. what always intrigues me.. is the fact how the photographers take such shots & walk away..
i don't mean to be disrespectful but don't you feel their pain?
reading your description of how you have all backup stuff for no gas, means you are quite well off (i mean better than average people living here)..
so you tried any act of help may be? I'm sure you must have did
I'm not pointing out, its just that whenever i see such art, i always think.. what are we doing as artists to actually help those in need, what most of us do is catch our part of fame from their lives & walk away.. UNQUOTE
Dear Fellow Deviant
let me assure you that no offense is taken at all, I have often had reactions to many of my images, such as yours. But perhaps, this time I think I should pen down an answer.
Yes, I feel their pain, I feel it more than you could eve
Interacting.I know I made a promise to be positive when I talk to everyone, but this is something that makes me very upset.Interacting.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I do my best to reply to as many comments as possible, and I talk to you guys all the time. I love interacting with you. You all show me so much love, and it's fulfilling to me when I give some of it back.
Some people people told me that I should respond to comments and interact with my fans very rarely. That way, I appear more prestigious and important, and a reply from me becomes more exclusive.
"A lot of popular people on the Internet do it, even other pony artists."
How fucking arrogant.
I'm very sorry, that's a strong opinion, and I sincerely mean no offense to anybody.
Of course, sometimes, there are just too many to reply to, and the artist might not have enough time. That's way different.
But deliberately, and for those reasons... I don't believe that's a thing people should do.
And I, for on
