Random from Dragons

Come look at mighty dragons in all shapes and sizes!

A very special dragoness called Silkara Lanyxania is surely to be in there.

Random from Photos- Squirrels and Friends

Squirrels are my favorite animals. Look inside the folder to learn why they are so endearing to me. :meow:

Random Favourites

From dragons to photos to cartoons, you'll find it all here. ;) I love to favorite things not just because I like it, but also because I want to promote the artist! Some are sorely in need of recognition so wonderful are their talents!

Artworks I'd really like to buy someday. Unfortunately money doesn't grow on trees, wouldn't it be nice if it did? :XD:

Photography is a passion of mine and someday I hope to have all pro lenses. Right now, I do the best I can with what I have. I have learned a LOT over the years, and my skills have vastly improved. However, much improvement is still needed. Regardless, I hope you enjoy my gallery, and I give a lot of heartfelt thanks to everyone on deviantart who supports me with comments and/or favorites.

The deviantart community is awesome! :dalove:

About that girl in the photo:

Hi there! Call me Ami online.
I have Fibromyalgia, and sometimes life is VERY challenging.
I love God, believe in Him, and consider myself a Christian.

I love all of God's creatures. :heart:

Well OK...maybe not mosquitoes.

Current tools of the trade:

Camera: Canon Rebel T6
Lenses used for the animals: Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM; Tamron 100-400mm F/4.5-6.3 VC USD

Older photos: Canon 60D or 70D. Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD was used for a LOT of photos and it was a great lens. I recommend Tamron.

About my photography: I only use natural light and rarely use flash. I do not use Photoshop and only do minor editing with either Windows Photo Gallery or Photofiltre (highly recommended). My style is extremely challenging because of this but I feel it is the best way to learn. My biggest tip to other photographers would be to get out there and photograph everything. Look above you and below you. The more you look around, the more wonders you will see.

Hello everyone!
It's been a LONG time but finally I have updated with some new photos.
Please do like, comment, and spread the news as I would love more exposure.

I get asked a lot if my photos can be used for reference. Surely you can, just so long as I get credit for my photo. Please include a link to it if you post the art to DA.

My gear has changed, I had to sell my older gear *sigh* then was able to get new gear but I'm only using a Rebel T6 right now.
Very soon I will get back to probably 60D or 70D.

I'm also still practicing so tips and constructive crit are always welcome.  My style and goal is animal portraits.

I do not use Photoshop and all my photos have only minor editing with Photofiltre.

However in the future I do want to get Lightroom or maybe Photoshop Elements to start trying out Raw files.

THANK you all and enjoy!! :wave:

Thanks. He's been harassing me a long time and continues to make accounts over and over. Hopefully he will just give up eventually.
