Account Security
Once every week or so we here at CEA and the Helpdesk encounter a situation where someone’s account has been accessed by an intruder who has inflicted some sort of vandalism or locked out the owner completely.
In this article I’ll try to explain some basic security concepts and various schemes that intruders will use in an attempt to take advantage of carelessness.
Most victims of unauthorized access see their gallery deleted, their journals wiped out and often their password and email information is changed in order to lock out the rightful user. Many times the invaded account is used to break policy and wreak havoc about the site until it is banned.
In almost every case the victim has unwittingly helped the invader gain access through carelessness and poor habits. In those cases where a stranger has gained access it is usually due to poor log out habits or being caught in a phishing scheme.
Cases involving access by strangers is rare though- it is far more likely that a roo

Macro Photography here at deviantART
"Macro photography is a type of close-up photography. The classical definition is photography in which the image on film or electronic sensor is as large or larger than the subject."
Macro photography has always amazed me. It takes the viewer into a whole new world not seen by the naked eye. The best thing, to me, about macro photography is that it can be done anywhere. You can go into a normal bed room and probably come out with plenty of decent macro photographs; it's just about looking beyond the horizon and being creative.
The following are some thumbs from my friends' galleries as well as some other deviants!
Enjoy. :)

Photojournalism on deviantART
Pronunciation: f O t O - j-r na-l-sm
Function: noun
meaning: journalism in which written copy is subordinate to pictorial usually photographic presentation of news stories or in which a high proportion of pictorial presentation is used; broadly : news photography
according to Mirriam-Webster Dictionary
As Photojournalism Gallery Director it is my duty to bring to you the BEST photographers and deviations that come out of the photojournalism gallery. To me photojournalism is all about getting "the shot". What is "the shot"?  Well it's the one that brings you there, the photo that in one frame can tell you the story of a particular "newsworthy" event, be it a concert of your favourite band, movie premiere, a protest against a government, sporting event or even a street festival. Sadly, I have to say that 30 pictures of your cat Fluffy in various sleeping positions are just not newsworthy, so please post the

Staff Changes
Please be aware of these as it will greatly help you when you are looking for people to speak to within the club.
Unfortunately, WindSorcerous has decided to <a href=””>leave DA and so we must say goodbye to one of our feature admins. This is a loss to both UP and the DA community. Nina has an amazing photography based gallery, she's kind and honest and helpful and a real gem to have as part of the team. We will miss having her here, but we all wish her the best of luck with the future and hopefully she'll return one day.
However, it is my pleasure to introduce to you GFXPunk who will be taking Nina’s place as a Feature Admin. We welcome Josh to our team and hope he will make himself at home here.

Renaissance - Live Forever: Remix Contest
Live Forever: Remix Contest

In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city's largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export -- youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws the populace is kept in line and accounted for.

Cut off from the world for its own protection, the city has nonetheless
continued to expand. Now, 21st century skyscrapers overlay centuries-old
architectural masterpieces. And below street

Hi! :wave:

I wrote a journal and a news article about Thuringia and featured one of your pictures in there.
If you like this kind of feature, I'd appreciate a :+fav: on the article - which would also help promoting your art.

Hi! :wave:

Ich habe ein Journal und einen News Artikel über Thüringen geschrieben und darin eines deiner Bilder gefeatured.
Wenn dir diese Art des Feature gefällt, würde ich mich über einen :+fav: auf den Artikel freuen - das würde auch helfen, dein Bild bekannter zu machen.
