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!

about deviantart eclipse.(added stuff)personally, i don't like the new layout-at all. i just needed to get this off my chest.
deviantart is the last website that's good for art, the whole reason why i buy core and remain active here is because i can fully express myself with custom boxes and stuff. profile customization is one of the best things about it, now it's gonna be "sleek" and "modern" like every other website-
although i do see a lot of people who are pleased with the layout, which makes me hope that they'll at least make the old version available for those who prefer it.
if you're like me and you're extremely upset about this change, the best way to reach the staff is through this survey:
it seems like almost everybody commenting on the beta test journal has got the same idea that i do- but unfortunately i dont know if the staff is going to pay attention to the comments on here so i urge you to please consider fill

Commissions/trades!Hey guys, I just wanted to update that I am working on official prices for my commissions and such cuz I get a lot of notes about it, and i've been meaning to make a price sheet for ages now!? So know that, that is coming soon.
I always want to say that my commissions are currently closed, but will be opened again so don't worry about that!
As for trades I get a lot of people asking about trades/commissions, and all I can say about that is-- I've got a lot on my plate and after the commissions/trades I currently have my main priority needs to be my show. and I wanna work on my show, but I also sometimes have a hard time saying no to people cuz I don't want to upset anyone. But at the same time I'm learning it's healthy to say no. SOoooo, no they aren't open right now. Unless I open small batches if an emergency happened or something, but for right now it's all closed for a bit. But I will finish stuff I owe now.
Anyway, i'm just so honored by all the kind words and seeing how car
Art Review 7Well the fortnite art journal was a bust so I'm just going to do a more general browsing deviantart instead.
I would like yall to send me art from your own galleries.
If you want me and/or others to (harshly) review, critique, poke fun at or show your art on a video/livestream you can put your old or recent art below. Keep in mind not everyone will be featured. Username will likely be shown for credit. Thank.
(If you wanna repost art that you posted on past journals you can also do that)
Do you know what fires your imaginationEverybody has an imagination. Some of us have learned to use ours better than others. People say they aren't creative, but everybody is creative, because everybody has an imagination.
Imagination needs to be fed, but not necessarily in the form your medium. Because that is akin to cannibalism to me.
Do you know what fires your imagination?
-- Justin Maller ekud
spyed: Why do creative people need a community?
ekud: Everybody needs a community, it's a deviation from the norm to have creativity be a defining characteristic of your person. A central tenant of your life. However you want to say it. So to find a group of people that share that, and have that affinity, is a basic human need. To have affinity with others.
spyed: Does having access to a community of like-minded people help the creative process in your view?
ekud: Sharing your affinity with others is what's going to feed that basic need that you're not necessarily going to be able to find within arms
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
