There is that new-fangled inter-net web-site that all the cool kids are on. It's called instant gram, and it lets you send photographs over the inter-net (which I predict won't last that long -- it's just a phase kids are going through)
If you have an inter-net, and an instant gram, follow me there. I post far more often there than I do here (and I don't know why?). I don't use filters, because I tweak my photos like a man -- by bending pixels with my own two hands.
I'm also on Google+, Facebook and also on SmugMug (this link is really important! Bookmark it!)
In other news? I'm upgrading from my Canon EOS 40D, to a Canon EOS 5D MK III with a sweet new 24-105mm L series lens. It's the amazeballs-bomb-digity-sharpie-shuffle, and I get to collect it next week (if the accounts lady at work gets back to me. You do a great job, Allison!
And now YOU. What's going on in your life? It's been a good while since I've had a "conversation thread" go on on deviantART. Let's get chatting!
Amethyst Eyes - The Book
I'm not sure why I haven't mentioned this earlier, but my wife, Enamorte (https://www.deviantart.com/enamorte) has published her very first book, Amethyst Eyes. It's been a few years in the making and has gone through lots of revisions to both the story and the characters (and even the way they look. See her collection of Amethyst Eyes art for a better idea. There were many, many nights where she'd lock herself in her room and write furiously, and many times when we sat down and discussed the progress of the book (which at some points just seemed like an ever-shifting goalpost) but she did it, and I am so very proud of her for accomplishing what few have If you're interest
davidgray Photography on Google+
I'm now on Google Plus! Now that I'm starting to ditch Facebook over concerns about my privacy, features being opt-out instead of opt-in, I've turned towards Google's fantastic new social network - Google+. And it's already starting to pay off. In the short time that I've had my page up, I've got more followers than I ever had on my Facebook page. Most of them are photographers themselves and the quality of their work is of a very high standard. It's quite refreshing. So if you're on Google+ (and even if you're not), head on over to my page and take a look. I'll be posting all of my 2012 365 challenge photos there, so keep coming back! dav
Win a camera, dA membership, print or merchandise!
Edit: I just read through the competition rules. Turns out only Australian residents can win the camera. However, my offer still stands. And regardless of the outcome of the Most Loved City, I will still donate some points or a premium membership to one lucky deviant! I've just entered a few of my photos into the "Australia's Most Loved City" competition. The photo with the most "loves" / votes wins a Canon DSLR. And if you vote up my photo, you go into the draw to win a Canon Powershot G12 which does full hi-def video (720p) and has outstanding image quality. It's worth $700, so this is no small prize! (Please see edit above for specifics)
umm, I did the sharpie shuffle. I have no idea what it is, or what it looks like, but I'm pretty sure I did it.. my shuffle was suitably sharpied. And because of this, I'm no longer allowed in the public library. Sorry.
Also, ask yourself, Is it worth it? If it is, you should let me work it, as I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it.
