Suburbs 14 by ~Opusmax is creepy and amazing. The focus is perfect, the scene is chilling, and the doll is worrisome.

favorites and lovely things by suzi9mm
favorites and lovely things by `suzi9mm exudes the essence of spontaneous photography - you're in the scene observing, and a bit scandalized in doing so. This image oozes sex appeal, Romanticism and the concept of togetherness.

Get to know: Nikos Vasilakis
Ever wondered how that deviant you admire got to where they are and jumped the walls your still looking at? Get to know has been created to get that need-to-know information out of that inspiring deviant you've always admired. From the first steps, to challenges they have overcome, what the future holds and friendly advice along the way.
Today I shall be interviewing the amazingly talented nikosalpha

Can you tell us about yourself and how you ended up in the fashion industry?
I started photography as a hobby in 2004. I got lucky enough to have some work opportunities in the very same year. I don't consider myself inside the fashion industry yet, but I am really working on it.
What was one of the biggest challenges you had to overcome when starting out?
I was always attracted and challenged by technology itself, but that was not the hard part. The hard part, was to leave my room and go out to chase something or someone to take photos of.

Fashion and Commercial Fashion Photography

Photography > People & Portraits > Fashion Portraits

The emphasis in fashion photography does not lie on the garments, but on the mood and styling of the image. The garments are merely an accessory to convey a certain lifestyle. Therefore, the whole image is much more complex. You usually won't see plain white or off-white backgrounds in fashion photography and the models are usually styled very dramatically with thick eyeliners, dramatic eye shadows, etc. With the increased complexity in styling also comes an increased complexity in lighting to make the image look more dramatic. Here's some fabulous examples:


Photography > Commercial > Fashion

Commercial fashion photography predominantly sells a product. Hence, the emphasis of the whole s

Adoptables are (mostly) fantasy creatures that you can collect and place on your profiles. It's like a mini game that has rules for breeding and adoption – which can differ depending on the different groups/people that offer creatures for adoption.
The right place for such adoptable artworks is deviantART related > Devious Fun > Adoptables.

Hey, there!

Apparently this is the Christmas season, so enjoy your holidays if you have some and enjoy your end of the year celebrations, whatever these are!

I have a few news about me and my photography work. NEWS ahead!

Photography pause ? Hum, no possible

During the few months I have taken a load of photographs for school related activities (about 5,000 photographs), so taking photographs is getting me quite nervous lately. I think I am going to retire a bit and calm down in order to make the pleasure come back :) This doesn't mean I would not make any picture from now on, simply that I would produce less media for a short time. This is just IMPOSSIBLE that I can take my retirement from photography, so much needs to be done in the future that I cannot hold back!

Activity on dA

Yes, I know I always say I take loads of photographs but none hit dA. The reason is simple, if I don't publish it is because I think the picture I took don't match my dA standard (which has risen a lot lately). I hope I would be able to publish there and finally get back to more interesting photography work!

My activity here isn't much impressive in general, most of the time I pass here is hanging in #photographers were there are amazing photographers and among all, great people. Be sure to hit that chatroom if you are any interested in photography or if you simply want to have a good time.

My future on dA

I am really thinking now about putting some of the photographs that are here into my scraps or even remove them from dA because they don't match what I think I can do, photographically speaking. This may sound pedant, but I really want this place to be the mirror of what I like and what I can do and not an history book of my creations. What do you think about it?

Future activities

I have applied to a BEST event in Finland next may. This is about smart spaces. I hope I will be selected among the 230 people that applied!
Did you have any experience in this kind of event (BEST or not, Europe or not)?

And after all

Happy Christmas season!
