A Sprinkle of Feature Love: New Watchers

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 8, 2018, 10:22 PM

Hello My Lovelies!!!

I have been battling a severe sinus infection the last week and FINALLY started feeling better today!!! Took my grandma out to lunch and even went to play at the park a bit today to take a couple photos. It was such a lovely day with the most amazing blue sky and light clouds! 


I have added a donation pool to my page for anyone to donate points to. Any and all points are used towards giving core memberships to deserving or struggling artists. Until now I have just been paying for them out of my own pocket, but if the community can come together I feel we can help even more artists! I have a special that if you donate 50 points or more in a single donation that I will feature you on my page for a minimum of 1 week. I will also be featuring the artists receiving the membership donations so everyone can see who and why they were given this!

Zaly's Cat Heart by Yafilippe A wish (with background)  by pujiantorestu67 Drooling - Inktober Day 6 by Nuclear-Duckling  Iron Man and the War on TerrorIt is widely known at this point that the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Iron Man. It's obvious that the film had a greater impact in popularizing the shared universe franchise frenzy, but Iron Man is very much a product of its time, and in many ways so was the original comics. The original comics had Tony Stark become Iron Man as a result of being captured by Vietnamese guerrillas in South Vietnam, wherein he built a suit of armor and escaped his captors, albeit not before defeating most of them and their leader. Originally, writing for Iron Man was a challenge for Stan Lee as when written, Iron Man represented everything that the developing counterculture during the late 50s and 1960s despised. “I think I gave myself a dare. It was the height of the Cold War. The readers, the young readers, if there was one thing they hated, it was war, it was the military. So I got a hero who represented that to the hundredth degre

Hello Lovelies!!!
I am so sorry about my absence the last couple months!
❤ *please don't hate me* ❤
My job gets crazy busy during the holidays and I unfortunately had no free time for Photography or Deviant Art.
💕 I really really really missed you guys!!! 💕
I have some exciting new adventures coming soon now that work is slowing down! I will be going out of state with my job for three months. This means I will have some fun travel photography and new places/people to capture!!
Hope you stick around to adventure with me! 😜
:new::heart: I have a question for all my lovely fellow photographers and watchers out there! :heart:
I classify myself as a Hobbyist Photographer and typically am taking photos for myself or family for the love of it. I have started to have people contact me about my photography and wanting to hire me, only problem... I have no idea what to charge! I've read online about charging per image or by the hour, pros and cons, etc.
Looking at my gallery and portraits, what would you charge someone for this level of work?

If your NOT a photographer, What would you be willing to pay for the quality? Would you prefer a per image or per hour? (take into account editing time as well)

Thanks for your opinion and input Loves!! :heart: :heart:
Ohhhh man! 
I just did a photo shoot for a friend and her little girl and the pictures are AH-Mazing! I can't wait to upload them for you guys to see!
Hello my lovelies!!
I apologize in advance if i'm not too active the next few days. I have been battling either a sinus infection or severe allergies sucks. I'm pretty sure my face has never hurt this bad. lol
P.S> if any y'all got those "its killing me jokes" you can keep 'em! :P

:heart: :heart: :heart:
Sooo.... I've never been more creeped out on Deviant Art as I was this evening. As usual, I get home and go though my notifications to respond to everyone and I notice one user favorited all of my female portraits. This wouldn't have bothered me so much if the name of the folder he faved them to wasn't highly degrading and inappropriate... All of my female models are friends/family and I didn't feel it was appropriate for their image to be in a folder like that.

It gets weirder...

I notice I have a *note* and its from the same person that favorited all the female portraits. I open it and its an image and, below it, text reading "you will forever be my princess."  Ummm, what?

I have absolutely no prior connection or communication with this person and got the weirdest vibe from the minimal interaction he gave. I promptly blocked this user as it was one thing to weird me out... but something completely different to put my loved ones images in such a titled folder on their page. Unfortunately, since I did not wish to communicate directly with this person, I had to resort to blocking them. 

Lesson - Please remember to be respectful of others and their images/work. If you would not like your image to go into a folder titled with something vulgar or degrading, please don't put others in it.

*end rant*
(I think that's how you do it?)      ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  
Never had to rant before. LOL

LOVE YOU ALL!!! :heart: :hug: :heart:
