Undiscovered... wow!!!!Just spent a few minutes in the 'undiscovered' category on the front page and this is what I found... all in about 10 minutes!!! Better stuff than I've been able to find on dA in a long time. My thanks and appreciation goes to whoever on the dA staff that thought of this and management for making it happen!!!! Everyone... go look!!!!!!
Cool thing I'd love dA to add!!!The ability to block anyone off the front page so I'd never have to see them. I'm not interested in some people's 'art' here but do use the FP to find art. Really love the undiscovered thing they have going now. It's nice seeing some getting real recognition. I think it's brilliant. Yeah, there's still the fapping issue. Certain people put up the same BS day in and day out and get 1000 little boys to like it because the can whap the biscuit to it. IMO hurts the integrity of this site as an art site but the days of thinking of dA a purely art site are gone. Edit... looks like they have to work on the 'undiscovered' algo a little. I don't think anyone with 1,200,000 page views should be on that page. LOL!!!!
Hey everybody... I giving a 1 month course...Years ago I taught at the Picture Perfect School of Photography (www.ppsop.com). Bryan Peterson is known for his New York Times best selling photography books. Well PPSOP is his online school. In June I'll be doing a 1 time course again. It's $195, and I know that sounds like a lot, but what you get for that money is my ear, eyes and thoughts for a full 4 weeks. You get a lesson every week but you also get a forum to ask me anything and everything about photography and how I do things. What you will also get is brutal honesty in the critique... and I'm known very well with the PPSOP instructors as being a really tough, really honest, person. If I like it I'll tell you why I do but if I don't, and most importantly, I'll go into great detail why I don't. So if you have any interest go over to http://www.ppsop.com/conc.aspx and sign up for the month. It's gonna be a ton o fun!!!!PeaceDave
So did you hear about GM? RANT!You know, the company that survived because of American tax payer dollars? The company that came crawling to the American people when they fat catted their way to the poor house?How does GM pay the American people back? By building a new manufacturing plant in Kentucky!!! Oh wait a minute it's not Kentucky it's California!!! Oh hold on it's not either of those places...It's freaking China!!!So how does GM thank America? By sending jobs overseas. Thanks GM. The American work force didn't need that 1.1 BILLION dollar building built here, our construction people are too busy. And I'm sure no one needed jobs on the assembly line because, as we all know we don't have unemployed.Hey GM... here's a big, stiff middle finger for you! You're back and in good shape now, how about not just paying back the money we gave you but also invest in your own country.Oh and a big thanks to Washington DC for not putting any stipulations on the billions we gave them. Way to go boys and girls. You give s
Google+: A great idea gone horribly wrong?Like so many I was really excited when google+ came out. I was thinking, finally a forum for photographers (and others of course but photography is my focus) that will be open, bring discussion and open ideas. I thought it was a powerful learning tool and a great way to find like minded people and share.Well, IMO, it's failed. The creation of the class system that, for some reason, Google thought would be a good idea has undermined the whole process. They've taken an even playing field and created a elitist class that overshadows the whole system. There are 40 or 50 people who run the show now and it's really a shame.I know in large online communities the original intent can be lost but that's just going to happen. dA is a great place but I don't think anyone would argue that it's changed a lot in 10 years. The only difference I see is that the good stuff, no matter how obscure, is still noticed here. Maybe not as much as it should be but it IS still there. You can go to the FP and s
Well dip me in candy and call me an apple... a DDWhat a surprise... thanks to :iconDemonMathiel: for the honor. I really appreciate it!!!Ah, guess I should have included a link to the pic. LOL. My marketing skills are so great.
Oh well...Guess I gotta start shooting pokeballs.. LOL...I know I haven't been around much in the last couple years. I hope all the people I've known thru my time here are doing well and smiling. I remember how much dA meant to me when I was cutting my teeth on this whole art thing and how much the support meant to me and gave me the energy to create more. I think without dA I wouldn't be in the place I am now.Yeah, it's changed since I started here or maybe I have. Who knows. I think it's more a social site with art (and some great art) now as apposed to an art site with some social intent and I guess that's just the way it has to be when you start talking the kind of member numbers, and age demo, that this site has generated.Well I'll keep throwing new stuff up from time to time and hope that someone can see it and maybe be a little inspired from it or at least maybe like it. Love and Peace to you all...Dave
Oh you gotta check this out...Ok from now on my journal is for nothing more than to share artists...This lady has under 1000 pageviews... Reallly?:iconsdfphotography: is a wonderful studio shooter who has some great ideas and some wonderful images. It's a crying shame she un-noticed here. She takes great stuff. She doesn't show pics of herself half or full naked and pouting but just let's her art speak for itself. But if she did take pics of herself she'd have a million pageviews because she's a total hottie (sorry about that Sedef, I couldn't resist )Here's some of her stuff.... Now go fave everything she has and watch her. She rocks.Let's take photography back on dA!!!!
So many worry...It's the time of year for reflection. I know that so many want recognition in our time so much so that they'll do anything for it but I wonder how many are concerned about recognition when they're gone?I want to be acknowledged in the here and now but I want to be remembered when I'm gone so much more. Right now I shoot for myself and have so much fun doing it that if someone likes it I'm glad but it has no bearing on what I do but I'd really like to know that when I'm gone I've made a difference. That maybe what I create means something to someone 100 years from now.I guess I'll never really know if that happens or not but I'd like to think it will. I'd like to know that some person looks at my stuff 100 years from now and says 'wow'. I doubt it will happen and I'm sure I'll just be another artist in a sea of artists that vanishes but I think the hope of surviving the centuries is what keeps me going.Be honest with your art... do what you want to do. That's all we can do to hopeful
