Famous Photographers: Dorothy Bohm"A World Observed..."Famous Photographers: Dorothy Bohm in Art Features More Like This
Dorothy Bohm was born in Konigsberg, East Prussia and has lived in England since 1939. She was recently elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and is considered one of the most respected women of British Photography. I stumbled across her work accidentally, as is often the case when you discover something great. I was astounded to find that the book I had discovered was the first major retrospective exhibition of her work - in book format. Her career began in the 1940s with A World Observed becoming the title of her soon to be famous collection of photographs.

Bohm has achieved quite simply, what many of us have tried and do strive to do through our Photography. Document an ever-changing and fast disappearing world. Bohm is said to be influenced by the art critic and th
Photography Troubleshooting: Winter WildlifeFor many parts of the world, Winter provides a beautiful backdrop for some of the best landscape and water scape Photography out there. Snowy hills, Frosty trees and more help to convert a world of vibrant Summer or Autumn into subdued yet awe-inspiring Winter. But what about the wildlife? Extreme weather conditions can make it more challenging to get out and about with the camera, but can also give you more opportunity to capture those elusive animals.Photography Troubleshooting: Winter Wildlife in Deviant Events More Like This
When I first started investigating Winter Wildlife Photography I thought that I would have to aim for things like Foxes, Deer and other wild and sometimes elusive animals. But actually, wildlife Photography and in particular in the Winter - can start right in the back garden.
Birds in particular get hungrier and needier during Winter months in England. I'm sure this is true for many parts of the world too. Depending on the kinds that frequent your garden, you could encourage them to linger pretty quickly or it might

It's All About Presentation (Mostly)As more and more people start taking pictures of their nether regions on their iphones or posing myspace style in front of their HTC's - the competitive world of getting a Daily Deviation gets just that much harder... I kid. But... daily, I am bombarded with awesome suggestions (which I love) and I'm not complaining about. But there has to be a criteria of sorts, that sets an image above the rest. Here are a few things I look for that you might not have noticed before... The first thing I look at when I stumble across an image or view a suggestion from somebody, is how the artist has presented their work to the deviantART Community.It's All About Presentation (Mostly) in Deviant Events More Like This
Your image isn't everything. Not anymore. In the past I have given Daily Deviations to pieces with titles that are a combination of random letters and numbers, or that are very obviously still the source file title - or that tends to be just a keyboard mash-up.

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,

Thank you for allowing me to interview you, let's start off by having you introduce yourself.
Hi! My name is Janine, I'm 22 years old, living in Ontario, Canada.
How many years ago did you begin sculpting and what got you interested in this medium?
I started sculpting around the end of 2007. I had been browsing deviantart looking at breyer customs and came across original sculptures others had made. I had never heard of polymer clay and had assumed you needed a huge kiln to sculpt. I decided to try it out and have been hooked ever since!

*melvynyeo, tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get into photography and why?
My name is Melvyn and I’m a designer. Photography has been my passion and hobby ever since I picked up a point and shoot camera 7 years ago. My main “focus” has always been insect macrophotography.
Why are you on deviantART and what makes you stay?
I chanced upon deviantART when searching for photos on the net for inspiration about 6 years ago. What really amazed me and make me stay is because there are so many talented people actively participating in deviantART. It is like a big big family of artists and photographers!
What type of photography do you most like to do and why?
I do landscape, portrait and events but my main passion is always macro photography.

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:

Since the birthing of the Gallery Makeover Project, I have re-reviewed my gallery's structure and found that 'Journal Graphics' is heavily miscatted.
This article is referring to this gallery:
deviantART Related > deviantART Skins & Scripts > Journal & Gallery Skins > Journal Graphics
What is it?
Journal Graphics, are exactly what they sound like - graphics made specifically for journals. These can be journal headers, section headers and background graphics, bullet points, etc.
Just by looking at the gallery in it's current state, I would estimate that around 90% of that gallery are miscategorized submissions. It was never used for what it was intended for and has become a dumping ground for ot

What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!
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.

Hi, Phil! So, I feel like you’re one of the best kept secrets in the photomanipulation community! You’ve been with us for more than 7 years, but I’ve always found you to be quite modest and supportive of other artists rather than tooting your own horn.

Direct link requirements on DDs
I spoke with $fourteenthstar and $Moonbeam13, and we decided that you should no longer have to put direct links to stock pictures in order to get a DD. So, you no longer need to direct link your stock pictures for DD purposes. (You DO still need to credit stock, though!) However, many groups still require those direct links for submissions, and that decision is entirely up to the group administrators. We hope this change will help make suggesting and posting DDs easier.

I am aware of all the discussions regarding the use of sxc.hu images by devianart users. It appears a lot of the users have misinterpreted the terms of the license agreement granted by sxc.hu and I will be happy to clarify and hopefully answer all of the questions.

FAQ: Where do I submit book covers?Hiya!FAQ: Where do I submit book covers? in Art Features More Like This
I've seen a few people lately asking where they should submit book covers when they are uploading them to dA. First, they should NOT be submitted to Digital Art > Photomanipulation unless they are simply the image (e.g. they do not have an author, title, etc.).
So, where do they go if they are actually book layouts (with author and title)?
You can submit them here: Designs & Interfaces > Editorial Design.
I hope that helps.

Shivering, you survey the spirits crowding the circle before you, taking in their foul stench and rotten sensuality. These are the gluttons.Circle 3: Gluttony in Deviant Events More Like This
The gluttons are blind and have no sense of the others around them, as is appropriate to the complete selfish self-indulgence they displayed in their lives. You wonder for a moment how you are supposed to get clues from them.
After a long moment, a lone spirit emerges from the fray and comes to stand before you. He is formless in his obesity, the product of a lifetime of lavishing in the pleasure of indulging himself. You study him for a long moment, and he studies you.
"I am Ciacco," he grunted dully, seemingly unable to make eye contact. "I have heard about you; word travels fast. You have come seeking wisdom."
You nod, trying to see the man through the gluttony. This journey is about tolerance and strengthening your own spi

Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork that has not yet drawn attention or recognition at the levels of Popular or What's Hot browse modes.
