Wishing I lived nearby! Meeting up and doing some photography is always a great way to get to know each other ^^
Deviantart WatchersHey everyone!
I'm posting like crazy lately, so exciting to be back into doing what I love (aside from portrait photography, which I love equally! )
One thing I've noticed since I've come back to DA is the lack of feedback on posts.
Just doing the math it seems strange that per deviation I post, on average only one comment is being exchanged.
I have over 8,500 watchers, so to get only one or two comments/minimal views on deviants just seems really odd. Doesn't it? :\
I personally don't care about all the popular faving and raving, I just think if someone who has build up such a big following over the past 4/5 years gets no feedback.. how are the rest of deviants surviving who have 1000 of watchers or less?
I know I've been away for a while, so please, if anyone knows why the numbers have dropped so much in the community let me know, I'd love to be in the loop! haha
Also, please don't think that I'm here whining about not having thousands of faves on all my pictures!! You cought m

Here's a little featured to "greenefy" your day

I'm Back!Hey guys!!!
So in the past few years, basically since 2009-now I haven't done much macro/nature work.
I know, it sucks. I've really been neglecting my inner passion for nature because of my portrait business, but this year, I'm really feeling a come back.
It's spring here now, 75 almost everyday. The trees are ready to burst with leaves, first flowers are popping out of the ground & Dasha Denger is ready to capture it all! I wish this year I could get a macro lens for my new Canon 1DS but having a tight budget, it's back to my little Nikon D70 & sigma 50mm like all the years before!
Anyway, since it was so nice out today, went out and took some neat macros of daises, crocus and some other kind of flowers all round my area. As this week/month progresses more and more things are going to grow & it's going to be an overload of new images!
I really hope you guys are going to enjoy my new work, it's primarily doing to be the same style, nothing has really changed in that departme
Dreamy Light Action | UPDATEDHey guys!
It came to my attention that my Dreamy Light action was not working.
Sorry it took so long to fix/upload, but it's done now, feel free to download the use. Everything works with Photoshop CS5 now.
I'll try to make some more tonight & have it up on my shop for purchase.
All the best!
The Wall Of Shame:: Edition 1So, hey there mates! How's it been hanging? A little to the right I see ;D haha jk.
Got to love my movie quotes! Can you guess which movie the "How's it hanging ____, a little to the right I see." is from??
Anyway, back to the topic, today I'm introducing the new.... drum roll please!
::WALL OF SHAME ::
Since there's so many "artists" out there who all want a piece of me, which is very flattering don't get me wrong, I've decided to give you some extra "advertising" for your business. Hope you enjoy
When I see you paste your name on top of my images it makes me feel like i have a cold! All hot and cozy, but at the same time sweating & discussed.
So, thanks too all who take my work & make it theirs, it makes for one hell of a good compliment.
But nevertheless, you are all idiots.
Thus, you belong in my new wall of shame.
The first contestant to enter into my AMAZING, if I say so myself, Wall Of Shame is this person!
Don't forget to clap, they enjoy the attention
Writing a TutorialHey guys!!!!
My goodness, it's been so long. I miss this place so much. But life, you know how it goes, it's got me so busy all the time.
I'm working on building my business right now, my Dasha Denger Photography business. I'm always busy now doing senior portraits and family stuff that I never have any time for some macro work! I did recently do some small macro works with some daisies, but of course I don't have enough time to do any actual editing due to a large amount of portrait works haha.
I'm doing fine though. Just recently did a fashion photo shoot with a couple friends of mine, and it was all done with a Polaroid camera!!! How exciting! (recently got one of those Fuji's Instax 210!)
Here's a link if anyone is interested in looking:
It's called: Retro Summer
Please be sure to like my facebook page if you enjoy my works, I'd really appreciate it!!!
Well, the reason why I made this tutorial actually i
400,000 Kiriban!Hey everyone... So I've been a lazy prick for a while now.. and haven't written in my journal or posted much of anything lately, except for my paintings!
Which is the reason why I'm writing this journal right now haha. Otherwise I'd be in my bed sleeping right now, it's almost 3 am
Anyway! My 400,000 kiriban is coming up pretty soon here. I can't say it's nothing important, because it is.. in a way. I appreciate all the view you guys give to my work and me in general. It's something everyone always strives to achieve. I remember in around 2008/2009 (can't even remember when I made this account haha. ) I had high hopes for my photography page and always wished to get well known like :iconliek: or :iconzemotion:. And even though I can't say I'm nearly as well known as they are, I am very happy to be where I am today!
On that note, I'd like to do a little "contest" I suppose.
If you can catch my 400,000 pageviews with an actual screen shot, I will do a commission wo
Interested in Buying a Camera :)Hey everyone!
Sorry I haven't been around much, been pretty busy with my business and other things lately.
I hope everyone is well
I am interested in buying the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II
I have looked everywhere! for one of these, and they are soo hard to find.
So many people waay over-price these babies especially on ebay
Does anyone know of a place where it's a reliable used camera store to buy?
OR is anyone interested in selling???
I already got a lens, I just need the BODY preferred with neck strap, battery etc..
I can go as high as 1500, no higher. Money is very tight right now, and I just don't want to wait any longer because I wish to provide my clients with only the best quality picture, and right now as you can see, it's not 100% satisfying haha.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks so much everyone!

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH
Great book for learning about pixel artI read through this a while ago and have been meaning to plug it here since I've always found good pixel art guides hard to come by and this was super helpful to me!
This book is very thorough and goes from how pixel art was originally made for old games (which I've always wondered about and find super interesting) to basic pixel art concepts and on to more advanced subjects including animation! I learned some new stuff and it clarified other things I knew about but didn't really have a clear understanding of. It's also very visually oriented so there's a lot of clear examples of the concepts covered.
There's also a free preview available here if you want to check that out first -

Reading Visual Novels Using AGTH/TA/ATLAS/ITH:icononewithrussiaplz::iconsaysplz:Greetings!
This tutorial will explain to you how to read (almost any) Visual Novel in English without prior Japanese knowledge using Translation Aggregator, AGTH or ITH, and ATLAS. These programs do not modify the games files, so they should be safe to use without causing issues with developers.
I will begin with a short explanation as to what these programs are, followed by steps on how to set them up and finally some extra tips and tricks you could use to further the translations!
Feel free to ask questions through comments. Just keep in mind that I'm no expert at these programs and I myself used a tutorial to understand the basics of the programs, so I may be unable to answer some questions. Most links I supply will take you to the developer forums where you can download and ask questions about the specific program. No better help than the kind that comes from the ones who made it!
You can also scroll to the bottom for links to other tut
