Q+A With A Hobbyist Photographer

Tue Sep 6, 2016, 11:29 AM

Meet Aaron


:icondramaticpeanut:

Aaron (dramaticpeanut) is a hobbyist photographer. He's very kind and talented! Read on to get to know more about him and view his work.






1. Why did you join DeviantArt?
I originally joined DeviantArt because I had always wanted to try out photography but I lacked the motivation. I was simply searching for a site where I could post a few photos that I took on my phone which I was proud of at the time an was fortunate enough to find this site. I never expected to love it as much as I do but the community has really inspired me to grow as an artist an help me have more confidence in the stuff that I do!


2. How did you decide upon your username?
I wish there was a cool story here but in all honesty it is just nonsense... I first thought of it in '10 or '11 for a profile on the Xbox 360 and I have stuck with it ever since or everything else...



3. What is your favourite thing about photography?
My favourite thing about photography/art in general whether it be music, poetry or photography is it gives me a way of expressing myself more freely without being to obvious. A lot of the stuff I post has meaning to me... But the real beautiful thing about art to me is that something could mean one thing for me and mean something totally different to somebody else... I always find that fascinating.



4. What are your favourite photos of yours, and why?
There are quite a few that I have been pretty proud of but my personal favourites are:

My Little Buddy by dramaticpeanut
My Little Buddy

I love this one because it was taken a day after I rescued the duckling and it is amazing to see how small she was back then compared to now...

Desolation by dramaticpeanut
Desolation

I love this photo because of the atmosphere created by the fog. I am pretty proud of this one as I did not expect it to turn out as good as it did. This was taken on my phone.

5. What are your favourite photos here on DeviantArt, and why?
There is so many amazing photos on here and this is a tough one but...

Urban Portrait Of A Woman Looking Up by rickster155
Urban Portrait Of A Woman Looking Up

This is one of my favourite abstract photos on here... It makes me think of the shadows in Hiroshima left by the atom bomb in the second world war. I do not know if this was intentional but it is a fantastic piece regardless.

Good Day by vanndra
Good Day

I love this photo because every time I see it it makes me smile. It is one of those photos that I always have to click on and view when I see it on a thumbnail around the site.



Now go check out Aaron's gallery! :D

You're welcome! :D Yes, I have. I liked this one cause it looked kind of link a mandala with a little person meditating in the middle.

I suspected that :D IF you wanna try some free simple fractal software of "Mandel an Julia" type, go to this journal. You don't need to know the math behind :wow:

(If any of the external links don't open, right click them!)
 
Maybe you would appreciate my Chaotic series of fractal articles (<- click) if you have a little theoretical interest ;)
 
Regarding deep zooms in the Mandelbrot set, if you check out my deviation Cauliflowerfort and click the link under "Artist's Comments", from page 4 you can follow the entire zoom sequence in 28 steps :wow:
 
In this journal you have some links to cool fractal animations I stumbled over at YouTube. Also check out the zoom videos in this journal :wow:
 
.. and from the middle of the nineties there is a fantastic TV program about fractals, Colors of Infinity by Arthur Clarke :) Really beautiful soundtracks by Pink Floyd :aww:
