Community Relations Newsletter - January

deviantART's Community Relations Team provides a unique collective effort that seeks to create and sustain collaborative relationships among deviants and to develop innovative opportunities within the global art industry. These relationships are meant to provide and encourage opportunities to foster creative genius.  The CR Team acts as a window of information for the community on how to utilize deviantART in a way that will empower and enable themselves as respected and successful artists.
Our ultimate vision is a community of artists that come together unified and strengthened by sharing the belief that they hold the artistic power to create and shape their own success.  In order to realize our vision,  our mission must be to exceed the expectations of our community, whom we view as partners, and we will accomplish this by committing to our shared core values. Our core values are listed in :faq84:

Public Service Reminder: Photojournalism
On April 23rd, 2008, I wrote the article Photojourna-WUT??. It has not been edited since, and we are continuing to adhere to the standards of Photojournalism being in its raw form.
A small disclaimer in the said article mentions:
:megaphone: **remember this is the PHOTOGRAPHY > PHOTOJOURNALISM GALLERY and any excessive use of photoshop and manipulation will result in your images being moved**
We would like to remind the community that if you have any further inquiries or are unclear of the Photojournalism gallery to please approach me, evanhwong, so we can guide you to fully understand it all.
Thank you.

[PhotoJournalism] Community Choice #1
Community Choice: Photojournalism
edition #1

The Story
Community Choice started out as a simple series of articles by jeriweaver where deviants could choose one deviant's gallery and pick three deviations from it to feature. In February of 2008 I, Helewidis gave a twist to that idea and asked the Senior community to choose one deviation from a gallery (back then it was for Artistic Nudes, today it is for photojournalism) and add a write-up explaining why they loved the piece so much and why we should see the it.
The project soon extend to non-seniors and took the form of Community Choice's News Articles, embraced by several Gallery Moderators and by everyone in deviantART.
The goal of this project is simple: To provide a fun and simple way of featuring good work from deviantART's galleries in a collaborative spirit between Gallery Mo

Photojournalism: An Ethical Approach
If you click the link (title) you'll be directed to an online edition of a book originally published by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Publishers, Hillsdale, New Jersey, 1991: Photojournalism An Ethical Approach by Paul Martin Lester.
I consider it food for thought and reflection about photojournalism and ethics and thus would like to share it with you.
Now follows an excerpt to lure you into reading the full version:
A photojournalist is a mixture of a cool, detached professional and a sensitive, involved citizen. The taking of pictures is much more than F-stops and shutter speeds. The printing of pictures is much more than chemical temperatures and contrast grades. The publishing of pictures is much more than cropping and size decisions. A photojournalist must always be aware that the technical aspects of the photographic process are not the primary concerns.
A mother crying over the death of her daughter is not simply an image to be focused, a print to be made, and a picture to be

First Tryout with My B.I.T.C.H

Sun Nov 1, 2015, 6:56 PM
ICYMI, I am trying out as an appophonic phoneographer. I have rigged my iPhone 6 Plus with a BeastGrip Pro and a few other fancy schmancies like stabilizer, microphone and an LED light, plus a sexy looking deviantART camera strap. 

But... "BITCH"? :o.O: 

Yeah... my Badass Iphone Tank-like Camera Housing. Hurhurr. I've done a video last August without the BeastGrip and boy was it horridly shaky! Since my Sony camera died in June, rather than getting a new one, I thought I'd try my hands on being another one of those iPhone Photo/Videographer wannabe. So here's what I did last Tuesday:

My fiancee and I were invited to the exclusive media preview and press conference of TOTEM by Cirque du Soleil on October 27 2015, a day ahead of the main opening show at the Big Top on Bayfront Avenue beside Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. The preview introduced two signature scenes of TOTEM: the Native American Hoop Dance & the Russian Bars. We will be watching the main show's finale on December 6 2015.

Video recorded on iPhone 6+ with Beastgrip Pro, edited using iMovie on iPad Mini 3. Music: Omé Yo Kanoubé, ‪TOTEM‬

What do you think? I'm gonna keep learning how to do those Buzzfeed or Mashable type videos while continue to take photos with my iPhone along the way. :boogie:

Much Heart

Evan Hwong
Artist | Professional | Photography
Previously known as ^estudio, Evan is a former independent documentary photojournalist (editorial reportage) in and around Asia with American and French press photo agencies. When not at work in his day jobs, which he is currently shackled down to in Singapore, he'll be seen walking around the city with his BeastGrip'ed iPhone 6 Plus, so if you suddenly see him walking up to you and point the lens into your face, don't freak out.

It's just Evan. :heart:

Evan is also a Photography & Photojournalism deviantART Senior Mentor. For more on how you would wish to be mentored, go to seniormentors
