Making money shooting concerts..
I was asked to help someone with my experiences via note, so I put it in my journal, and now im putting it here..
This is MY idea of how to go about things, and might not be the only way, or the right way.  However, since the beginning of 2008, I have worked with over 80 bands.  I only just started doing this in Dec/07
Where to start?
First you have to realize that you don't start big.. You shouldn't expect the 'Dixie Chicks' or 'Hansen' ;) to be your first gig, so hit up some local bands..
It really helps to have a good appreciation for music. I am pretty well rounded, and I will shoot and listen to almost anything, but if you hate a certain genre, stay away from it, you might not have any fun.. At least to start out.
My first real paying gig was a for local band Roswell and would be the second time I shot them.  The first was at an outdoor concert at a small town

Basset Hounds
I love animals. I really do. I never thought I would love Bassets though until I met my hubby, (NDBBM) 12 years ago. He had one then. Her name was Maggie and she was something else. She lived with his mom and I'd go over there to see them and she'd be pretty happy to see me. She'd always be up to no good, too. We'd come back from something and she would have gotten into the peanut butter or whatever else she could find. If she had the chance, she would dart out between our legs and run down the road... only, she'd get about 3-4 homes down and then... stop where she was and lay down. :lol: She'd look at us as if to say, "Ok, who's coming to pick me up now?" and we'd go get her. :P She was awesome...
After we got married and into our first house, we got our first basset hound. She was the runt of the litter of course and she was soooo cute. We named her Sassafrass or Sassy for short. She would love to smell hubby's shoes when he got home from work. He'd take them off and all you'd s

The Magic of Code-Breaking
What magic? :unimpressed:Ever get tired of typing :D, only to find :D ( ^^ ) staring you down once you hit submit? Or how about :X becoming :X ( >^< )? Are you wondering how I managed to type up that example without its own point thwarting me? Well, here's the secret::DYES! IT IS THAT SIMPLE!
Now, all of you, stop whining that dA stole your ability to use your favourite smiley. There's no longer any need for your complaining.
:postit: Note: You could also use , , , or even . Any closing-tag-dependent HTML tag would work.
Is that all this is good for? :confused:Absolutely not! Just look around! You can use this method to get around just about any code that deviantART's parsing system renders differently.
For example: my, well, examples! How did I get "" to render that way?Want to type a URL without it becoming "[link]"?
This particular example comes in handy if you're ever giving somebod

Feast, by lolitaAgogo

I will never forget how Keith's jaw dropped when I opened the package to reveal the gorgeous original... and how I teared up just a little. Thank you so much.


Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
With a record level of nominations and suggestions on an almost daily basis, it would be hard to ignore the community call to recognise such a fine example of a deviant as `snowmask. Her constant presence since the formative years of deviantART has never wavered, demonstrating a natural ability to seek out and motivate those in need.

Katie's beautifully delicate artworks are elegant and instantly recognisable due to her finely tuned creative style, a clear reflection of her personality. With a multitude of journals which are thought provoking, funny and resourceful, it's impossible not to be touched by such a bright light in our community. Congratulations Katie!

Hello, my name is Katherine...

Friends call me Katie. I am a painter, and my husband zerocomplex manages my work. I also serve as a curator and Public Relations Officer for resurgere.

Deepthroat Leakage

Wed Apr 27, 2011, 1:24 PM


Hello! A lot has happened since the last time I updated my journal, and I wish to share the news one step at a time. deviantART is still, after so many years, one of the primary places where I share finished work. Since the launch of my website at the start of the new year, I have over the past few months established a system of where to post updates of my paintings, detailed walkthroughs and works-in-progress.

This section on my website is for what goes on "behind the scenes". Archived here are walkthroughs of my paintings, which I update on a regular basis, and it is also where I'll be sharing photos of how I get my paintings ready for exhibits.

High resolution images of my works-in-progress accompanied by detailed annotations are posted exclusively on my website.

There are two very convenient ways to receive updates of "In Studio" postings via the website's resources. By selecting "art update feeds" from the top right menu located at the header, there are options for subscribing directly to RSS, or to receive RSS alerts via email.

Here is another way to follow updates of all things related to my work, as updates from my website are fed directly here and are automatically posted to the Wall. Some finished works are posted here, although not of high resolution. Simply "like" the page to stay in touch.

Finally, there's my Facebook profile, where I like to post work-in-progress images in a "teaser" fashion, in that they are the most up-to-date, but with longer intervals and much less continuity between one step and the next in the painting process. By comparison, "In Studio" is where the most complete documentation of my works-in-progress can be enjoyed, however each detailed walkthrough on my website are posted only after a painting is finished.

In other words, for those who thirst for as-soon-as-possible updates, this is the place to go. There is also plenty of sideshow entertainment, as this is pretty much the only place where I post photos of my husband Keith's delicious cooking, as well as photos of my cats Chiko and Perry getting into feline shenanigans.

Question Tiem

Have you ever tried to relive a happy experience? Was it just as good, better, or disappointing?

My husband and I experimented with this once and we have concluded that at least for us, moments should never be "chased after". So many little things come together to form a full experience, an exceedingly happy one, and it all just falls into a chain of events that almost seems orchestrated - such perfection cannot be replicated by conscious human planning, no matter how scrupulous the eye... and I'd like to think I haven't lost that particular touch.

What happened the second time was by no means bad, but it definitely "wasn't the same". Many months ago Keith brought this up with me and I learned that happy occurrences should always be cherished, and that my ambitions should turn to the future and the new, instead of awkwardly embracing a loved one from behind with both arms backwards.
