Hey DeviantArt, it's kero0ppi.

We haven't been talking in quite a while.
How have you been? - Aha, aha, well - I've been okay myself.

But there's one thing that I've missed to do.

You can probably guess as you know me very well: It's taking pictures.

Lately I felt the urge to go out with my camera and take some pictures of the most amazing colors of fall.
Who knows whether I end up doing it or not - the most important message is that I actually want to.

I haven't felt the need to take pictures in months or even years.
Now that it seems to come back I felt like updating.
Or... writing at least something to get rid of old promises and wild speculations.

It's done! (You can now imagine me dramatically waving my hands in the air to emphasize the importance of that fact. Do you? Oh boy.)

Thanks for taking note of this,

stoneage-old deviant k to the ero0ppi (don't exactly remember why I chose to put an 0 into my nickname as it has been complicating LOT!)

A Sign of Life

I know, I know... it's been quite a while since I have been updating my journal. Reasons are the usual: No time, no motivation, nothing to say really...

But, and this can be seen quite positively, I feel like taking tons and tons of pictures at the moment. It's spring again which means I will be out a lot, maybe taking some pics of swans again.

To cut a long story short, there'll be some new stuff soon. You may be excited!

xoxo Sammy

Hello there. I know I'm incurably oblivious, so pardon me. And if you read all of my journal entries or at least the last few, you are able to understand that I keep planning things over and over again but... I never get around to really tansact what I originally have been planning for so long.

But, you know, there's always a way to kind of.. yeah, to get back onto the right track and that's what I'm trying to do like all the time. So you have to be indulgent to me, okay? (:

I didn't forget about the last poll concerning the theme of my next shootings. I already talked to the models and... planned. But as things go, everything came different. Don't mean these shootings will never come. I'm really looking forward to doing them. So I beg for your patience (and also for mine) and hope to find the time to really do what I wanted to do. In the meantime there will be other photos, random stuff, spontaneous stuff.

I'm very excited about whatever will happen, I hope you guys are still with me and as soon as I found out how to display some features in here, I will. If somebody knows how to, write me!
Thank you and regards,

Good morning starshine, the world says hello! Welcome to the journal of kero0ppi the frog. If you wonder why my journal looks so different - it's because I bought a deviantart subscription! For 1 whole year. Enjoy.

Work, work and more work.

I am up to my neck in work. School, home, projects, hobbies. It all takes away my time. I wish I had a "stop button" to press and then everything would go very slowly. But unfortunately I don't have one. Yet (and maybe you're happy about it) i'm planning again and today I hope to get to work on my gallery, load a few new deviations up and check out everything about my subscription. Guys, this is exciting! My head's full of new ideas, about to explode. Let's see how far I can take this. So long,

Did you miss me? Haha. I can tell you, there are so many things to do, trips to plan, grades to work on... the last few months turned out to be horrible! I didn't know I could be so stressed. Obviously there is not much freetime left and my last shooting was in November. I just don't find the time but I instantly hope for it to get better next year.
You know, I got my Canon and there is one thing bothering me: Self portraits are difficult to shoot. It's not easy to hold such a huge camera yourself without shaking. And I really don't want it to break.
But I can tell you one thing: I'm planning a thousand things, so... there will be some big photoshootings but i cannot tell you when exactly. So I guess we both have to wait (=
I wish you an amazing christmas eve, a happy new year and a lot of creativity! Go out and take pictures! NOWWW!!!! (;
Okay... so... till then, my friends.

One more thing. There are so many people who are supporting me over a huuuge amount of time and also some people who have been watching me since the very beginning - so I just want to thank you guys. Without you I wouldn't be the same happy photographer as I am now. Thanks!

So today I had a shooting with my girl Auri and her boyfriend in a river. They were freezing 'cause it was freakin' cold in there. Fortunately I only had my feet in and not my body. But there's no water that can be cold enough for me *_* I've often been to Switzerland (near Italy) in the Vale Versasca valley. There are some ice cold mountain rivers I went in... it took me almost half an hour! And you know, every single part of your body starts to hurt like hell because it's just so cold. But I love it.

Sooo... I'm turning 18 next month (finally) and my big Birthday present will be a Canon EOS 400D camera. So I hope I will be able to show you some results^^

Please, repost this in support of your friends and loved ones who are. Love is not defined by color, creed, sexual preference, or gender. Feel free to add your own story:

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag everyday

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the one working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the woman who died when the EMTs stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn't have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am a warrior for my country serving proud, but can't be my true self because gays aren't allowed in the military.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

I am the person ashamed to tell my own friends I'm a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them.

I am the who isn't sure what she is. I am the who is rejected by her "best friends" because of a less-than-conventional crush.

I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to "teach me a lesson."

This is the boy, Matthew Shepard. On October 7, 1998 Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson lead him to a remote area east of Laramie where they demonstrated unimaginable acts of brutality . Matthew was tied to a split-rail fence where he was beaten and left to die in the cold of the night. Almost 18 hours later he was found by a cyclist who initially mistook him for a scarecrow. Matthew died on October 12 at 12:53 am at a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. MURDERED BECAUSE HE WAS GAY!!!

...what i'm doing at the moment. I don't do those serious shots... I'm just like: Hey, it's fun - let's do this!

Don't mean I'll never do shootings again, not at all. I will. The thing is I don't want to stress myself out. I didn't want my gallery to become that f*cking serious. It should be art. And that's what it is...

I hope that i can somewhen load the pics of sarah up again. Because I don't really see why they were deletet. Okay, it was a back of a 16-year-old girl. But this is no porn tube or whatever... It's just art. And if my beautiful girl wants to show off her back, why not? It's nudity, okay, but you don't even see breasts! You didn't even see her ass cheeks or whatever you want to call em.

Yes, I'm still outraged. And in my opinion that's okay.
DA also deleted one picture of Christina, because they weren't sure wether she was over 18 or not. And they sent me a kind of formular to fill out and send it back to them; giving a  permission of her submitting she's 18 and okay with loading stuff up on my account.
I personally think it's ridiculous. But okay, I have to live with it.

Anyway, I'm already planning some shootings again and... I hope you guys keep watching me.
*cuddles all of my commenters, reviewers, favers...*

Thanks again. :hug:

ps: i'm too lazy to correct any mistakes i did. so... don't take care of them (;

oh and... i have decided to join some clubs :D
hopefully soon:
:iconblacks-and-whites: :iconi--:

All clubs listed here have my full permission to add my work to their club galleries!

  • Drinking: tea with rock candy
Unfortunately I had to delete A LOT of the pictures with becky on it because there are some stupid people we know showing the pics to everyone they can find and then talking bad about it.

This is poor. Get a life!

So now i feel like half of my gallery is gone and it hurt very much to simply delete what i loved to look at so much.
People can be monsters.

Hopefully you understand our reasons.
So... hope this ain't happen again.

Obviously i've got my camera again and oh, surprise.... it works! According to my calendar 2 more shootings are going to be done soon with two people you have not seen in my gallery so far. Thus i think it will look great.

We've already planned what exactly the photos are gonna look like and some details are fixed and so...yeah. Good start of summer. And please, don't tell me i'm too early ^_^' I just can't wait though i'm quite patiently.

So with i mentioned one j-post before... i'll have A LOT (and i mean a lot) places here to be used as bgs. Whaaatever. So 2 shootings planned (and one that actually should be done so long ago)...  One more thing to say: I deleted some pics that weren't desired at all so it's not that important i guess but i just wanted to tell you (i do not want anyone to be mad at me just because i deleted sth).

And I'ma finish this by saying

Okay so this is how it is:
I could have a bunch of new models (I've made some interesting relations) and I hope there will be a few shootings soon with people you have not seen already in picture series of my devart gallery.

However I'm trying to make some light experiences since i haven't got any light-system yet (which i wanted to archieve already a few months ago o.O). So i'm still looking for that.
Uhm what else to tell you about my photography plans?

With summer there are a lot of places offered to be used as backgrounds for my "portraits". So if my camera - I actually did the last shoot with the camera of a friend - works again until then or I've got a new one (hopefully!!) then I can do some outside shots of course. Damn camera.

So see you guys ... or not. (=
Oh and thanks for the support over that big amount of time since I have joined DA.
