Things you don't say to socially awkward peopleOkay as being one myself, I'm going to make a little list that kind of speaks for us all! Not all of these things apply to myself, but they are commonly seen to affect others and not to mention this list shouldn't really exist because it's known as MANNERS but that's something that doesn't really exist now so here I am giving some tips of things not to do to your shy friend-ARTWISE:Do not ask for/suggest art- Unless they specifically say they do commissions/art trades/requests, then please don't shove it down their throats. Maybe they're too busy having a life rather than slaving themselves to the almighty art god youDo not hog them about your request- Even if they do accept a request from you, if they are unable to do it, or if they're taking a lot of time to do it, let it slide! You're getting art for FREE, princess. Why should it matter to you if they're able to do it or not you're not losing anything. This is extremely tiring for the artist and will quickly annoy them, and/or st

Do you just put down the pen and declare: "Done! Now on to printing!"Well, you shouldn't. Finishing a story is but the first step towards finalizing a book, or uploading for an audience online.Writing is creative and experimental, but publishing should be bound by laws of proper English and critical technicalities. Back when publishing was almost exclusively done by a print-editor and multi-unit company, there were professionals to check your work before it hit book shelves. In fact, your book had to first make it past the dreaded slush pile of either an agent, or publishing house assistant.Nowadays websites li
The APN Guide: Grounds in Landscape PhotographyWhat is the first thing you look at in a photograph of a landscape?When you decide to pick up your camera as a hobby, you’ll soon learn that one of the key points to “getting it right” is to consider composition each time you press the shutter.You probably know all about the rule of thirds.It’s the most commonly used guide for photographers. Instead of situating your subject in the center of your frame, you divide your image into thirds – horizontally and vertically (a handy option on nearly all cameras these days). The interesting points in your photo can be found in the section where those lines intersect. Examples of photographers optimizing the - horizontal - rule of thirds, including foregrounds.This might be the point where a mountain peak touches upon the sky, or where the sun crests the ocean. Choosing these focal points in your
