"Street": The origins - Defining StreetStreet Photography: The Origins"Street": The origins - Defining Street3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As we all know from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding everything was invented by the Greeks.
Well, ok we left some trivial things to be invented by the Chinese as well.
What you may not know is that Street photography was also invented by the Greeks before Photography itself was even invented.
Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment or "the supreme moment". The Greeks believed the concept of Kairos is achieved when such a moment is grasped for otherwise the moment is gone and cannot be re-captured. According to ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment.”
Interestingly the ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. Whi
#01 Constructively Comment in 5 Quick Steps!ProjectComment is a Group of many projects centred around comments, but, more importantly, constructive comments. Every week, one admin from ProjectComment will write an informative article on commenting that will hopefully be useful to you! Please help support us by the article and contribute your thoughts and opinions on the matter.#01 Constructively Comment in 5 Quick Steps!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This article will list five easy ways to make your comment constructive. What many people do not realise is that a constructive comment does not have to be as long or as indepth as a critique, and that you don't need to be an awesome commenter or an awesome artist to write a constructive comment. You probably won't have to spend more than 5-10 minutes writing a constructive comment, and it could still be helpful to the artist.
Here are the steps that you can take to make your comment more constructive:
State the things you like about the piece.

Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre http://myraincheck.deviantart.com/art/Statistics-on-Street-Photography-371453155 .
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the street, it is not photography of your cat, or of graffiti or 'street art' (that's another genre of photography), it is not photography of your friends or family on trip.
Let's see some attempts to define street photography:
"The essence of street photography is the impulse to take candid pictures in the stream of everyday life" (from 'Street photography Now').
" For the most part, however, the photographers discussed in these pages have tried to work without being noti

I am about to embark on the week from hell (somebody stop it!)
Yep - I am staring down four 12 to 16 hour days (10-14 in creative workshops, 2 commuting), then the last day shouldn't be too bad (good, cos I figure I'll be nonsensical by then).
I'm taking my camera with me to see if there are any goings on worth recording, and might sneak a peek at dA through my phone, but for the most part I might get a quick post in at night before hitting the hay.
So I thought I might do a rolling feature - add a new category of art each night.
So first up - Traditional Art (excluding collage, which I'll do separately).

In Loving Memory, Robin McLaurin Williams, Forever We grew up watching your movies and thought nothing of your inevitable death. When we were children we assumed that you were immortal, a permanent fixture in our entertainment world. It’s strange, some people have perceived that what you did was fictional, but to us, the people that you influenced during our formative years, your work was real, in our eyes you were every character that you portrayed. You have shocked the entire world with your passing, the entire planet is heartbroken; we could not have imagined it. Not then, not now.In Loving Memory, Robin McLaurin Williams, Forever5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I would watch you play Peter Pan and that warm tingly sensation of inspiration flooded my soul. I felt the same way when you played Patch Adams, Mrs. Doubtfire, and who could forget Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting. You were a beacon of life lessons through your work, I can’t believe you’re gone. You’ve inspired an ent
