Hello, deviantART!

Welcome to the July 15th edition of Photomanipulation News. I hope your July is going well for you and that those of you who are in hot areas are staying cool!

I've got lots of stuff to tell you. Let's get started!


Advanced Photomanipulation month!



September is our month for advanced photomanipulation! While the activities and workshops I have in mind are geared toward developing or continuing to develop advanced skills, everyone is welcome to participate. We will all be reaching outside our comfort zone. I will be contacting some folks from each of the galleries (surreal, dark, macabre, fantasy, conceptual, etc.) who have more advanced skills and inviting them to provide feedback to help us plan the event. If you are interested, regardless of your skill level, let me know and I'll be sure to include you in the conversations. It's going to be awesome!


Photomanipulation Contests



There are a lot of contests in which you can participate right now! Why not challenge yourself?
