Depth of Field Tips for Flower Photography
Animals, Plants, & Nature Week Poppies in the Blue Daily Deviation 7/8/2015 Hello! My name is Ruth, though I am commonly known as kayaksailor (https://www.deviantart.com/kayaksailor) on DeviantArt. I have been a photographer for most of my life, adding up to more than a half century of taking photos!  I made the official switch from film to digital in May 2007 (about the same time as I joined DA) after getting my first dSLR, a Nikon D100, at a yard sale. As I am rather fond of flower gardens and the accompanying insects, those are my primary subjects and will be my examples for this article. Personal taste will dictate your scenes! Today's article will discuss some Depth of Fi

I am thankful for all of you guys. Especially my active watchers. You guys help me keep going, even when times get rough. The days I feel like my art isn't very good, there's some of you guys who just always prove me wrong. I wanted to thank all of you guys, and a special thanks to select people who have truly helped me with my art, and life.

And now, I thank all of you guys who have continuously supported me, and I hope you continue to, with a special thanks to these people, :heart:

I thank you for all the comments you leave me. Of all the things you've done, all your commenting is one of my favorite. It's hard for me when I hardly get people to comment. And I've always appreciated it, even the times I may of forgotten to reply, or missed your comments. No matter what I always read them. In fact, you may like to know when I am feeling down in the dirt about my art, or unmotivated, I enjoy reading all the comments you left me. So, I thank you. :heart: For everything you've done.

You have always been a great friend to talk to. You are always here when I need to talk, or just feel like being weird. You are a sweet girl, and your art is adorable. I absolutely love talking to you, never think I don't you little weirdo! :heart: Thank you for all your support and love.

Sometimes I may not always get to reply to you either, but you've shown me excellent support. You have occasionally joined me when I went live, and you always look at my art, even if you don't comment. I am thankful for the fact of you always read the description and ask me about things :heart: (which reminds me, and don't hate me for not yet telling you bout 7th moon lol I've been a little busy to write up a specialized description. I will very soon I promise :heart: )

I thank you for being here, even though we are on different sides of the world and sometimes cannot talk all the time, you are still there for me when I need you. You support me in the bad times and the good times. You are very sweet, and I hope we can continue to be good friends no matter how long time progresses. :heart:

Now this is a general thanks I'm giving to a group of people, but you still all are just as important to me.
I wanted to thank you guys for all your help with my group deviantARTGalaxy

Heart I'm not mad about you not telling me yet (though I did wonder if I was being ignored for a second). I can wait.

So you do like comments? I'll post more often then, I just didn't want to annoy you XD. Happy Thanksgiving ^^.

Oh yes you are no bother! I love comments. it's depressing when I don't get many sometimes. So feel free to comment any thought you may have c: they honestly make my day and give me a smile, even if I can't always reply or not know what to say. Sometimes I try not to reply if I am away a bit and don't see it until 2+ weeks after then I feel bad bringing up a dead comment. lol

I even appreciated the time or two you had time to join my live-streams. It was lovely being able to talk with you as I worked.

I'm sorry I made you feel ignored I had a lot considering classes, just a lot of work there, I've been doing a large amount of traditional drawings in my free time, and minor gaming to relieve stress. Then the holidays. I got super depressed when no one was coming. Only 3 people had an excuse. It got me super depressed so I actually made plans to go to ohio, my second fam, I was there during the summer. We are all going tomorrow on a round about trip. 5 hour drive leaving about 6 am then leaving there about 6pm ish cause my parents are working monday and they are my ride lol.

I understand. Sometimes I'll put off replying to someone until I think I can post a good reply, it can be hard to know what to say.

Oh yeah, I'm not very good with chatting though (lol). The streams were fun, there are always interesting discussions about random stuff going on.

No, it's okay, you don't have to feel bad. I understand that people have a lot going on in the not-virtual world.

I'm sorry you had to go through that. My family had a small Thanksgiving gathering too, but I'm really introverted so I didn't mind the less noise lol, have fun on your trip ^^.
