"Street": The origins - Defining StreetStreet Photography: The Origins"Street": The origins - Defining Street2 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

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
#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!11 months 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.

Traditional Art FeatureHalloTraditional Art Feature9 months ago in Personal More Like This
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).
Freestyle Feature - January 13thAnd here's my second freestyle feature. This one and every feature thereafter will be shared on my Facebook Page and Twitter as well: facebook.com/nodokava, twitter.com/nodokava. Those of you who are on there, please Like/Follow. I always Like and Follow back. If you also have a Page, I'll include you in my Featured Likes. Glad to see a pretty good variety this time.Freestyle Feature - January 13th9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Ramblings about 'internet fame'A lot of stuff has happened lately in life lately, and is has made me think about things, and about my perspective on it. One of those things, is the internet.Ramblings about 'internet fame'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, I'm a huge nerd. While as kid, I didn't had a computer at home, and I hated those damn machines because I wasn't able to work with them at all (so much fail T__T), I soon caught up when I got my first computer at age 14. And while most of my family expected me to end up as a hopeless internet addict, I soon started to learn myself how to program. The rest is history. With my 26th birthday, I also celebrated being a webprogrammer for 10 years already. Oh yeah, I'm getting old for sure.
The recent chain of events have caused me to think about the internet and it's role in life, however. When I first started out with art, I was only a little girl. Me, and both of my younger sisters, were all very creative. And we spend almost all of our time drawing at the kitchen table, while discussing about the characters we

Ten Commandments... from a dog.Ten Commandments... from a dog.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My Chihuahua Mia (2007-2011) on Halloween
Hi Everyone!! Christmas is around the bend and i just wanted to remind you PLEASE DO NOT buy someone a dog for a Christmas present! 40% of these "gifts" end up in shelters or pounds due to lack of interest or unwanted responsibility. I am a HUGE dog lover and have had several over my years. I see people often who have no business owning a pet and it tears me up inside.
Please read this and do your research before purchasing a dog. Not all breeds are for everyone. The !0 commandments as a dog sees it: (reposted)
My life is likely to last 10-15 years: Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that!
2.Give me time to understand what you want from me: don't be impatient,
short tempered or irritable.
Day-by-day almost finishThere is only 2 days left of the bunny's day-by-day.Day-by-day almost finish10 months ago in Personal More Like This
He is almost 2 months old and he doesn't grow more.
I want to share my favorites photos of the bunny. I want to know what are your favourites photos of this project.
The first photo, this is the beggining of all the project. I like this photo because you can see a little thing that later become something big.
I like the position of the bunny.
In this photo the bunnie seems very small, he feels cold.
I like the contrast between the bunnie and the bacground. I like his ears too. This is my favourite photo.
Now, I want to know your opinion. What is your favourite photo?
