The key to shooting better sunset photographs!
When you are browsing through some of the photography communities online including the dA waterscapes gallery you see quite a lot of photographs of sunsets with their photographers wondering why their photographs are not getting the same amount of reaction as others. Most of the time, it has not got anything to do with big trade secrets but actually quite a few simple things you can do to make your sunsets better.
We all started from the beginning where we just took a photo right at the sun that was setting down over the water and that is the typical error in sunset photography and it is knowledge of the composition and how the camera works that can help getting a better photograph.
The first thing is really the composition. If you just set up your camera and take a photo then you will likely only get a photo once in many thousand times. The first thing you want to do is to look at your scene, find out if you have any interesting objects that you could possibly inclu

An Eccentric Tasmanian Troubadour from a gorgeous little corner of the world. These days, any creative output is almost exclusively musical, but every now and then I like to use Nikon or Photoshop instead of strings and vocal chords as an outlet for my over-active imagination...

Hello everybody!

Great big significant update on my life: I'm recording a new album which I'm SO excited about! what's even more exciting is that there's a way for all of you to get involved! It's caaaaaalllllled...CROWDFUNDING! You, my crowd of watchers, can make this album a reality! But I don't just want to take your money - you get rewarded for your contributions! Among other things, you can pre-order the album at half price, you can gain access to exclusive bonus tracks that nobody else is going to hear, you can get your name credited in the CD packaging, you can have me dedicate a song to you on my YouTube channel, or you can even have me play a private show in your living room! Check out the little trailer below or click here for more information...

I've got some fantastic guest musicians involved in the album, and Amphitaman is going to be illustrating the CD booklet (go and check out his gallery). The album will feature a bunch of traditional Celtic songs and tunes, a few covers of works by musicians I admire, and about half a dozen of my own original compositions. I can't wait to have you all on board!

  • Eating: heaps of free food that just got given to me

Remember this:   Puppy throwing by prosaix  scroll down to the comments and you'll find yours...

Puppies are living beings just like you... Puppies are loved and don't you dare make a comment about killing puppies AGAIN! Or I will show your fans on what you said about the puppies... because I have already found the comment and I know where to find it... and just remember... Puppies are amazing so shut it!

Welcome to DeviantArt, little one. I see you've been here a month. I've been building a following here for almost a decade, and at some point or other those followers will have been privy to the fact that dogs are not my favourite creatures. So please, be my guest: try and scare them away by revealing something they already know about me!

I wish you many happy years of creating art, and I encourage you to base your worth on how many people you can make happy by praising their creativity and sharing yours, rather than on how many people you attempt to threaten because they have a different opinion to you.Love

It's just that I really like dogs, and I'm a dog lover... and I also have autism and it's hard to for me to understand that I need to except that not everyone likes the same things I like... I got really afended when you were saying you wanted to throw puppies, and I got mad again... 

I'm sorry, it's just hard for me to expect stuff with my condition...
