Celebrating Diversity #2Welcome to the 2nd edition of Celebrating Diversity! This series of articles aims to bring you outside of your comfort zone in terms of Art and showcase from a wider range of galleries to embrace the diverse nature of the submissions to deviantART. Not only are we stepping you outside your normal 'go to' galleries - but we as the writers of this fantastic series, are visiting places that we wouldn't normally go to as well.Celebrating Diversity #2 in Deviant Events More Like This
As humans , we are all different. We have so many types of all sorts of things in the world such as cars, jobs, flavours of crisps, hair colours and so on - as Charles De Gualle once said, " How can you govern a country that has 246 different types of cheese?" It's a challenge to embrace so many things, but one that we should try hard to accept.

"Creativity, like human life itself - begins in Darkness "
I read a very interesting article this week debating Photography Vs Literature and which one of the two tells us more. Of course there is always the element that a picture could be accompanied by words but neither aspect is enough to tell a whole story. But as the article says, Photography has become a universal constant in the world today and is accessible to nearly everybody. Yet many still believe that only pure narration can truly tell a story. What are your thoughts? As Photographers we can choose to limit what we tell or show with a photograph, we can even mislead. Can we convey more with words? Or more with an image? You could describe a person with words but never truly give an accurate picture of who they are visually without a photograph...

"Skill in photography is acquired by practice and not by purchase"
- Percy W. Harris
The other week, a piece of my writing was selected for a Daily Literature Deviation. If you're curious you can see the article here. I was humbled by that, but my reason for mentioning it in Photography Bi-weekly is that 0hgravity then highlighted a website to me that I found absolutely fascinating. It's soul purpose is to highlight Endangered Languages through Photography. 3170 lens are capturing the people who hold the key to the worlds most secret languages. Once again something like this highlights the complete and utter importance of Photography and reminds us of how far we've come, and how much we can do from mobile ph

'The day my mother bailed me out of jail she said to me...
"You Need A New Hobby"'
-Jared Wingate aka JaredWingate
Recently I started a forum post asking members of the community where they began with Photography. Specifically I asked what your first camera was and what provoked an interest in the hobby. Because for nearly everybody that's exactly how it begins. The response was incredible, however one reply in particular touched me. JaredWingate permitted me to share so here we go...
"I was 21. Just got my first DUI... I wrapped my car around a pole after
leaving a bar late one night. The day my mother bailed me out of jail
she said to me "You Need A New Hobby" she went out and bought me an

Photography Troubleshooting: The Watermark FAQ"How do I protect my photography and art in general?"Photography Troubleshooting: The Watermark FAQ in Art Features More Like This
"As Eitvys200 pointed out, at least 1 journal per month makes it to the top of the list and is about stealing art. Sometimes this is something small such as posting a piece to facebook, other times you see hoards of pieces on a website selling wallpapers or something similar. Regardless of how it happens, or where, it can hurt just as much to see your hard work disregarded and especially someone else profiting or taking credit.
Protecting work is a huge deal for some people, and not for others. It depends entirely on your outlook - how you view your work and indeed whether or not there needs to be some constrictions on it due to the content being a child, or family member. But how do we protect our work properly from art theft and wrongful use? The simple answer is you can't provide for every eventuality. Even if you upload your work to a website where right click -> copy is disabled,

"Does Equipment Matter?"
One of the more recent articles on the topic of photography explores how an instagram photograph taken during Hurricane Sandy has been selected to be used on the cover of Time Magazine. Perhaps quite fittingly, the title accompanying the image on the front page is Lessons from the storm. Whilst many have learned a lot from Hurricane Sandy and many more are working on rebuilding their lives, one of the biggest lessons for photographers and the world of media could well be that iphone Photographers can be photo-journalists too. We've covered the topic of equipment, capabilities and qualifications many a time before now in Photography Weekly - but what are your thoughts on this article?

Urbex #2Urban Exploration is the exploration of man-made structures.

The internet has provided Urban explorers with many opportunities to garner news of new locations, the best places to go to 'urban explore' and what to avoid. Additionally social media means that we can share places that others will never see, and never hoped to see until the introduction of the internet and the ease with which we can communicate. So as this series goes on, we're going to look at some of the top Urban Exploration websites, at the current time, online.

Gallery Makeover ProjectHello everyoneGallery Makeover Project in Deviant Events More Like This
Recently my team and I worked tirelessly on a project to help improve the gallery descriptions and thumbnail examples. While that project was indeed tedious with almost 4,000 categories in our system, it was also educational. What I learned from sorting through thousands and thousands of categories was that we have a lot of redundancy and a lot of categories that seem to have been created on a whim that are now simply homes for junk.
Over the years, the desire to appease niche communities and people who just wanted a specific area has led to some categories that go up to 4 levels deep, and it's really no wonder it's so confusing for people to figure out where to submit their artwork.
The conclusion I've come to is simplicity. While I'm not about to rip apart everything and make 6 stand alone categories, I do believe that there is a lot we can do to simplify the category tree. That includes some of the following:
1. Merging categories that ma
Spirit Day 2012"Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillanSpirit Day 2012 in Deviant Events More Like This
In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.
While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe that it's anti-bullying message is relevant to every community. It only get's better, if we take the pledge to make it so.
Practice compassion and understanding, and treat others how you would like to be treated and we can make a difference.

As the old year begins to fade into the sunset, it is customary to reflect on the passing year and make plans for the upcoming one. Some do this in the form of resolutions, some people make action plans, some people just swing into the new year the same way they swung out of the old one Whatever way you intend to welcome in 2013, I hope you're surrounded by love and that you do it safely!

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

Traditionalists is a new group aimed at giving the traditional art community their own unique voice by giving the traditionalists a place to gather, organize, and inform others with the help and guidance of the traditional Community Volunteer team. The idea behind this project was to open the channels of communication between the traditional community and the traditional CVs so that we can all work together and develop a main hub for all things traditional. If you haven't joined this group yet, we'd like to encourage you to do so.

What first got you interested in wanting to suggest DDs?
I don't really remember the exact point when I started paying attention to DDs. I guess, I saw these beautiful pictures at the bottom of my page. Gradually, I understood that they were a kind of "award" for outstanding pieces. I was also wondering how some people could suggest DDs! By searching here and there, I found the way.
I eventually decided to send my first suggestion to rydi1689, the then Fan Art Gallery Moderator. She is so kind, she accepted it immediately! This encouraged me to suggest more and eventually to love this task. I am generally shy with others. So this gesture, although it may seemed normal to her, it was

'dA Related shouldn't get DDs'Over my term as the deviantART Related volunteer (and even way before that) I've noticed that dA Related Daily Deviations tend to get some hate.'dA Related shouldn't get DDs' in Deviant Events More Like This
Past dA Related volunteers have always included what category each Daily Deviation they feature is in hoping it would reduce the amount of "wtf is this?" comments.
Here are some topics that I know have been addressed endlessly by various people, past and present, from the Community Relations team:
What is a Daily Deviation?
A daily deviation is a feature of a submission. Please note that 'masterpiece', 'artwork' and other words are not mentioned in that particular FAQ.
Another thing that is often misunderstood is the face that there is a volunteer for most galleries on deviantART. I can't feature from Digital Art, Traditional Art, Literature, Photography, etc; only from deviantART Related. In most cases, volunteers can only feature from one parent or sub gallery.

Categorising Darkroom - Digital or Traditional?On dA, the galleries for Darkroom Photography are split into two categories - Digital and Traditional.Categorising Darkroom - Digital or Traditional? in Art Features More Like This
Digital Darkroom is for Photographs which have been digitally processed or edited with the use of computer software to emulate traditional and alternative film darkroom techniques.
Traditional Darkroom is for Scans of photographic prints and negatives where the images have been physically developed and/or printed using traditional and alternative film darkroom techniques. This gallery is not for digitally created or edited images.
It seems like an obvious difference, right? How much further explaining really needs to be done? Well, just a little, because there are a few exceptions to what you might assume to be hard and fast rules.
Photos created with the involvement of a digital camera should never be placed in Darkroom > Traditional.
Darkroom Exposed: HDRDarkroom Exposed is a series of articles highlighting talented deviants, noteworthy art and helpful information all about the Photography > Darkroom gallery on dA.Darkroom Exposed: HDR in Art Features More Like This
This issue features HDR (high dynamic range) photography, which allows for a greater dynamic range (variation between the light and dark areas) than regular photography. This can have a range of effects, between creating an image more like what you see with your eyes and depicting hyper-real results with a painterly feeling.
Some digital cameras can shoot HDR in-camera but HDR images can also be created using digital editing software with multiple exposures of the same scene. 'Fake' HDR can also be created from just one exposure. Here are some beautiful examples of HDR photography...

Spirit Day: A Bi VoiceIn honour of Spirit Day, I would like to share something about my own experiences with people's reactions to my sexuality. When asked my sexual orientation, I say 'bisexual' simply because it's more concise than the things I find attractive in a person don't tend to be gender specific so what does or doesn't dangle between a person's legs is as irrelevant to me as the colour of their eyes or the size of their feet when it comes to assessing whether or not they are physically, intellectually or emotionally appealing.Spirit Day: A Bi Voice in Personal More Like This
That doesn't sound too crazy, right? I mean, plenty of people are bisexual. It shouldn't be a big deal. But for some reason, it often is. I've always been pretty comfortable talking about my sexuality in relevant contexts. I'm not confrontational or militant about it, I don't wear an "I'm bisexual, lets talk about me!" t-shirt and I never felt the need to come out, because I always figured that if people want to make assumptions about who I find attractive, that's th
Darkroom Exposed: Digital OverlaysDarkroom Exposed is a series of articles highlighting talented deviants, noteworthy art and helpful information all about the Photography > Darkroom gallery on dA.Darkroom Exposed: Digital Overlays in Art Features More Like This
This issue features digital overlays, which are created by layering two or more images (including but not limited to texture and colour layers) to create a final image, mimicking the effect of exposing photographic paper to two or more negatives and/or filters during printing. This differs from photomanipulations, where elements of numerous images are separately extracted and combined to make a final image.

Celebrating Diversity #13In this issue of Celebrating Diversity, I would like to remind you of an amazing feeling...when you see a piece of art created in a medium or genre that you have little or no experience of working in, and it feels like you're witnessing something magical, something beyond your comprehension.Celebrating Diversity #13 in Art Features More Like This
It's wonderful to revel in the joy of How do they do that? and find inspiration in the creations of other artists. So I challenge you to take a step outside of the galleries that you regularly browse and immerse yourself in the experience of indulging in something new.

Do you regularly browse, comment on and collect art that's wildly different from what you create?

What is Digital Darkroom?What is Digital Darkroom?What is Digital Darkroom? in Art Features More Like This
Digital Darkroom is the evolution, converting chemical processes to digital ones, cellulose and silver to pixels and bytes. The first digital camera, weighing 8 pounds with a resolution of 0.01 megapixels, was built in 1975 and recorded black and white images to a cassette tape. The first camera which recorded images as computerised files was made by Fuji in 1988 and the first commercially available digital camera was created in 1990.
The Digital Darkroom gallery on dA is for photographs which have been digitally processed or edited with the use of computer software to emulate traditional and alternative film darkroom techniques. It's also a place for very modern processes like HDR photography, which involves creating images with a higher range of visible tones than regular photography.
Most of the functions available in digital editing software were created to mimic actual darkroom

What is Traditional Darkroom?What is Traditional Darkroom?What is Traditional Darkroom? in Art Features More Like This
Traditional Darkroom is where it all began. It started in a world where the word 'photography' didn't yet exist and the art of creating images of reality with light and chemicals sat somewhere between science and magic. Did you know that the mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid describe pinhole cameras in the 4th and 5th centuries?
In the early 1800s, artist/inventors like Louis Dageurre and Henry Fox Talbot (among others) experimented with ways of fixing images using chemicals, including silver compounds, following exposures on materials like glass and metal, lasting from several minutes to several hours. By 1840, Talbot was creating negative images using the calotype process and John Herschel had invented the cyanotype process (where the term 'blueprint' comes from) and created the first glass negative in 1839.
In the middle part of the 1800s, the wet plate collodion process be

A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.A Note on Daily Deviation Features in Deviant Events More Like This
With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.
The "This is crap!" Argument
As an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their

Hi, my name’s Matthew Davidson - I go by the moniker Megalithicmatt because I like visiting ancient sites such as stone circles and standing stones. I’m a geochemist, not an artist or designer by trade, so my photographs are taken purely as a hobby, though I have considered becoming a working photographer in the past. Aside from history and archaeology, I enjoy hiking, rock climbing and anything that gets me out into the countryside.

Art has a very personal definition and there are no rights or wrongs. For me, art is to find beauty and something worth taking the time to pay close attention to, in everything that surrounds us.
Some people say everything is art. Some agree and some don't. Regardless of your position in this debate I think is safe to say that maybe not everything is art, but everything has the potential to be art, if we know where to look.

PE: Digital Art VS other categoriesThe category system within deviantArt has the purpose to organize the thousands of artworks submitted every day and group them together in accordance to style, media, genre and/or theme, etc. Imagine deviantArt without categories, it would be a chaos!

Thus the importance of categorizing your artwork correctly. By submitting your work to the appropiate category combined with a correct use of keywords, you're a step ahead of being discovered by people wanting to search for art like yours.
All this sounds so nice and all, but what happens when a particular piece could fit in several categories? The category system as it is now is very specialized and has literally thousands of different subcategories buried down tons of more subcategories, which is both a blessing and a curse. Havi

Photomanipulation vs. Digital Mixed MediaWhat is this series?Photomanipulation vs. Digital Mixed Media in Art Features More Like This
The "Fix that Miscat" series has been designed to help educate deviantART members about the different galleries to which they can submit their art. Tired of submitting to a particular gallery and having your art moved to a different one? We will help minimize this occurrence by examining pairs of categories that frequently get confused and doing our best to clarify them for you.
What is a Photomanipulation?
What it is:
On deviantART, we define photomanipulation as "two or more PHOTOGRAPHIC elements that have been combined to form something NEW."
This means that:
At least 2 elements must be from photographs.
The result must be something new and different, distinguishable from the original.
What it is not:
It does not involve 3D images, even if there are also photos involved.

I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.

Samhain: Inferno - Intro and RulesDisclaimerSamhain: Inferno - Intro and Rules in Deviant Events More Like This
We disavow any insinuation that magic(k), Samhain, and witches/witchcraft are connected to Hell in any way, shape, or form. We are taking significant artistic liberties with Dante's Inferno and with witchcraft in an attempt to create a world that we hope will be interesting and engaging. We are fully aware that Samhain is not the same as Halloween, that being pagan does not make one a Witch, and that being a Witch and being Wiccan are not synonymous. We encourage beginners and curious outsiders to learn more about these religions and traditions and to keep in mind that this game is just that: a game.
Welcome, lonely Pilgrim. You are very far from home.
Tonight is Samhain, the night in which the veil between the world of the living and the spirit world is at its thinnest. It is the perfect time to embark upon a Divine journey to meet and learn from the souls of the Damned. You will need your wisdom and ins

This project aims to bring you features that you might not have seen otherwise from a variety of galleries around dA. For example, I tend to live and breathe photomanipulations and (to a lesser extent) digital art, and I really enjoyed taking a moment to browse the non-photomanipulation galleries for treasures. I found many, and I hope you will enjoy the features I have chosen.
These are the things I love:

Conceptual PhotomanipulationHi all,Conceptual Photomanipulation in Art Features More Like This
While many of us would agree that "good" art tells a story, conceptual art has a concept that transcends the art itself. I wanted to share with you some treasures (some new, some older) I've discovered from the Photomanipulation > Conceptual gallery. Perhaps you will find something new to collect, or perhaps you will be able to see an old favorite with a new eye.
Want to know more about conceptual photomanipulation? Here is an article from Project Educate that might interest you. Hope you enjoy.
PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b

Samhain: Dante's Inferno is an interactive adventure here on deviantART to help us celebrate Halloween. It is sponsored by a small group of Community Volunteers and a few select community members and backed by Community Relations. The adventure will begin on October 10th and end on October 31st.
In the fourteenth century, an Italian poet named Dante Alighieri composed one of the most influential collections of poetry of all time: The Divine Comedy. In the first book, Inferno, Dante himself ventures through Hell, guided by the spirit of the Roman poet Virgil.
Samhain is a Sabbat, or blessed day of festival, that some Wiccans and some other pagan traditions celebrate in October. It is the day in which the spirits of the dead are closest to us, a day to celebrate those who have passed before us.
. . . What better time to visit the souls of Hell?
What do I have to do?
REMINDER: December Challenge: Coping MechanismsHello, Arts-and-Health!!REMINDER: December Challenge: Coping Mechanisms in Deviant Events More Like This
Welcome to your December Challenge!
Your theme for this month is:
"Coping mechanisms" refers to how we cope with illness, whether in positive ways (practicing religion, exercising, writing, hanging out with loved ones, meditating, etc.) or ways that are not so good for us (smoking, etc.). Show us what you personally use to cope with your condition (or if you do not have a health condition, show us what others you know do to cope).
In your artist's comments, please make it clear that you have created your piece for our group. (If we can't tell that it is relevant to coping, we will not accept your piece into the Challenge.) Also, it should be a new deviation (made on or after December 1, 2012).
All media are accepted.
Submit your deviation(s) to the December Challenge - Coping folder in the group's gallery.
You can enter as many times as you wish.
At the end of the month, the group will choose one wi
