Photography Weekly Header created by TouchedD

A photograph is memory in the raw. - Carrie Latet


I recently spent some time (okay maybe hours!) exploring a photographic exhibition on the Isle of Wight - England. I had known that the exhibition existed for some years, but had never really ventured over there. It was held in the home and studio of a celebrated Victorian Photography - Julia Margaret Cameron. However it did include a nice variety of works - photographs from Dorothy Bohm who put together the book A world observed and a collection of shots taken at the famed 1970s Isle of Wight Pop Festival. It included images of Jimi Hendrix who performed at the festival just three weeks before his death. The images collated and exhibited were fascinating. But what really struck me was how far we had come in terms of camera equipment.

This was donated to the Margaret Cameron Trust by Graham Ovenden and was subsequently named after him as it had no brand markings on it. It's rumoured to be dated back to the 1900s. It's a camera! Although it has different purposes and does slightly different things to your standard point and shoot - imagine what we'd have had to contend with if this was the equipment we had to lug around in order to snap our memories and do our work. I for one, would never again complain about the weight of my two (very small in comparison) SLR cameras after seeing this!



Community Relations News


We've said goodbye to a few names on the Community Volunteer team. They're still around though so go and show them love! In the past week we've said farewell to
MzzAzn, shuttermonkey, TheCreativeJenn, takethef and hellfirediva.

Did You Know? is out once more and might highlight a few things that you didn't know about deviantART.
Daily Deviations - Behind the Magic is an article that's basically asking for your input on Daily Deviations and any questions you might have surrounding them. In particular myself 3wyl and IsacGoulart are interested in your questions and thoughts on General Photography but you can drop by with your questions on any area of art if you want to. We're getting ready for projecteducate's daily deviation week that will be led by Astralseed

Finally we've updated the bi-weekly critique blog which you can find right here! The General Photography critique night went really well last night and I'm working on getting a date for another. Keep an eye out for updates and we'll keep you posted!




Spotlight Deviant huhahohi


huhahohi has been here for two years and has a beautiful gallery exploring various subjects. Nature, Animals and People is her specialty with some wonderful spontaneous portraits and concepts.

Spotlight Group


PhotographersSoul is a group dedicated to showcasing your work, not judging it. They want
you to submit your work without the fear pf it being rejected based on
skill. As long as they can see the subject, and it's not abusive in anyway
it has found a home in their gallery!

We haven't had a trouble shooting article this week but I'm working on putting together something to troubleshoot a question about fireworks photography. If you have something you want answered just send myself or sine-out a note and we'll work on it for you. TouchedD has created me a wonderful header for People & Portraits Exposed so those articles will be kicking in again next week. For now though enjoy the latest edition of Nom Nom which features a bunch of yummy raspberries!

Another edition of The Story Behind the Photo is out and this time explores the work of a fantastic photo-journalist. Keep an eye on IsacGoulart because he puts together some lovely features that are worth having a look at! Talking of lovely features don't forget to have a look at the transportation photography feature My Car and I.
