When Photoshop wasn't a household name Vol 2
In my last article about Photoshop I spoke about people who edit there photographs so much and get thousands of favourites for doing so, great but it seems you have to use Photoshop these days to get any popularity what so ever, in fact if you have a great photo and you say you didn’t Photoshop it, people say your lying.
Surely if you put loads of textures over your image that should be photo manipulation. What does a texture add to a photo? Why do people put them on, other to make the image look pretty? And there is the problem, because it seems these days if your image doesn’t have one, it’s not as pleasing.
Another couple of fashionable things these days and things I see on nearly all the photos I see in the popular sections are:
Vignette, it seems everyone does this to a picture, sometimes its ads to the photo as it draws your eye to the subject, but I’ve seen it on nearly every photo I’ve seen, I’ve also seen it on every photo in peoples galleri

When Photoshop wasn't a household name.
remember when photoshop was for professionals, and not every photo you saw was some crap photo that had been made "better" by photoshop?
remember when you could go to the front page of deviant art and NOT see the same artists and photographers all the time because they had so many favs, and pageviews?
are you fed up of not getting the views you deserve because someone with 6 million pageviews can post any old art and get a million favs.. then read on.
Remember those days?
these days I cant come to deviantart and look very far before I see yet another submission by certain artists who have so many pageviews its unlikely they will ever post anything again that wont make it to the top pages of devart.
It goes like this, you post somthing and people who like it will fav it, if it gets enough pageviews or favs it goes up to the top of the most popular tabs, and thus you get seen more and more, which means more favs and more pageviews.
great if you dont have many, but it seems maybe its unfa

Interests
that's right, i'm going back to school! in the fall i am going to Parsons New School of Design in New York City for a photoshop/illustrator certificate program. my cousin jessica paul is a teacher there for interior design, and she is going to pay for it! i am so pumped, mainly because i never thought i would be going back to school, thinking that i'm too old. well my dream is coming true...

once i get that under my belt i have the oppurtunity to freelance and maybe do some design work for her and her husband.

yay!

hello! I'm contacting my watchers because you all have been incredible in supporting me and my work and I am hoping you can do so now when I need it most.


I've entered a photography contest, and I need votes

[link]

I am currently ranked at #9 out of over 1000 entries... I'm very excited about this and I hope I can keep the ball rolling like this till February when the contest closes.

I have 124 people watching me. If each one of you votes for my photo (you can vote once every 8 hours) and posts about it somewhere on the web, I think I can win. You do not have to register to vote or share the entry online, and if I win I will get $1000 towards my education.

I hope you can spare a moment to help out, I will forever be thankful if you can :heart:
