Human TraffickingHuman Trafficking in Art Features More Like This
This series of photographs is inspired by the tragic destinies of women who are victims of human trafficking. Some statistics say there are more than 20 million girls enslaved all over the world which I believe is not the real number and that there are a lot more. This number actually means nothing..if just ONE person, women, child or any human goes through hell like this it’s enough to shout about it and try to stop it in any way we can.
Those invisible humans are hidden from our everyday lives and treated as though they are property. I feel deeply disturbed by that fact and I had a need to show this truth through my photographs. I know it doesn’t change anything but maybe it will at least make people question their values, remind the once that lost them that these girls are our sisters, daughters, friends, someone we know or used to know..THE GIRL IN A PHOTO COULD BE ANYONE..so we should all ask ourselves what is this world

"The quickest way to make money from Photography is to sell your camera"
Noticeably in the past few weeks, more and more people seem to be speaking up and making noise at the fact that aren't making money from their photography. There's no doubt about it - Photography starts out as a hobby. You don't one day pick up a camera and decide that you are going to be a pro and get given your first paycheck. It's one of those unique hobbies where you get a gentle introduction around age 10 with your first proper camera (haha) and the rest is History. Whatever you make it really. You can't say that about most professions.
Putting yourself out there is something I've been trying to hammer home the past week, you'll have noticed my ramble if you read last weeks edition of Photography weekly. Getting paid for it is another matter. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices. Sometimes, you might not get paid for what you do.

"“The eye should learn to listen before it looks.”
I'm quite late hopping on the discussion wagon with this one since itsfrits tells me the article has been trending for some time now. However I was eternally grateful to him for pointing me in its general direction - because what a topic!McDonalds show behind the photo-graphical scenes because a customer in Canada asked why the food looks so different in real life. If you watch the video included in the article, it's actually very insightful. And what a team they have JUST to photograph a burger. What the video does show is that everything in the photo, every ingredient you see, is exactly the sam
Should've Slept More Last NightPolitics is a lot like highschool. You either care way too much about it or want to distance yourself from it as much as possible. People are way too sensitive about everything to make good decisions or react properly to each other, everybody thinks they know everything even though they know very little, and everybody flips their shit when somebody has sex with somebody else because frankly everybody is surprised that anybody there is getting any.Should've Slept More Last Night in Personal More Like This

Rise From the Dead
“Where are tonight the sword and its swinger, the holy spells and their singer? Where is the light to scatter the ghosts, the sight of dawn to shatter the frost? Fears can be hidden, and hearts’ fire kindled, but will shadows be caged and demons faced? The curses of liches linger like winds of winter, and wolves howl a hymn for the undead's hunt… who will be safe from the grim reaper’s swing, and who will fall in its grip?”

Crossing the LineAlmost 99.9999% of the comments I get on DA are very nice and complimentary. For this I am grateful and appreciative. I also appreciate the occasional criticism that suggests I try a different crop, color, or lens choice. Even after 35 years I feel it is vital to listen to all the input I get because there are occasional jewels of ideas that come from learned professionals and beginning amateurs alike. Sometimes I even like it more when someone who is new to photography makes suggestions because they aren't stifled by the "rules" we all learn when we start out.Crossing the Line in Personal More Like This
Recently, I've had a few people say some interesting and absurd things. These comments are related to my having taken down my gallery of nudes. First of all, let me say, my motive for this action was simply time management. I run a business so I don't have time to respond to all the comments or even read them all.
The suggestion has been made that by me removing the nudes, by responding to horrid comments then hiding and blockin

Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)Photomanipulation walkthrough in Personal More Like This
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.
Think of things that are important to you, that lay close to your heart. They can be emotions (love, hate, sadness, anger) or experiences, hobbies (art, sports etc), things you are struggling with. Or they can be global themes like (beauty, money, economy, eating disorders, war, relationships etc.)
Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee
