These are a selection of tips and tutorials both here and on deviantArt that can be useful for before, during, and after portions of taking a good photo.  This was originally created as a gathering of useful information for the members of PhotographersClub (https://www.deviantart.com/photographersclub), but they though it so helpful that it should be shared even further! :heart: Tips & Tutorials on deviantART :new: First off, did you know you can go here, http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/tutorials/photography/ to search through all of the photography tutorials available here on dA! :omfg: :camera: CAMERAS, QUALITY, AND JARGON! :bulletblue:Camera Buying Guide - A very helpfu

Cultivating Your Drawing Skills

Cultivating Your Drawing Skills

I believe drawing skills are never innate: when someone is a natural, what they really have are remarkable observational skills and the ability to apply them – in their case, through drawing (it could just as well have been espionage ;)). Drawing skills can be cultivated by anyone able to use their minds and hands. There are basically only two approaches to do this: theory (+practice) and observation (+studies). :bulletred: Theory is a structured, organised approach, learning from someone more experienced who's laid it all out for us in a course, book or tutorial. :bulletred: Observation is an organic, unpredictable approach, learning

Uploads

I'll apologize in advance for the mass amounts of uploads that will be occurring, lots of photography, lots of finished and unfinished work (that will unfortunately be taken via iphone and uploaded due to my scanner) hopefully it'll bring my deviantart page back to life, or at least up to date. Talk about a long time without updates now I have tons! On the topic of my art work, I've really drifted away from the sharpie abuse, I'm still doing a ton of abstract but not with sharpie pens as I found it frustrating when I was unable to make the lines super thin just due to the sharpie bleeding, so I'm using various Micron pens (08,05,03,01 and 00

One Year Later...

Talk about a long time guys! I promise stuff will be up soon, unfortunately some of it will be really shitty quality since the paper is pretty big and my scanners a piece of garbage anyways! Either way Im sorry Ive been slacking so much, its really been a hell of a year really got diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, just got put on meds, lost my best friend to cancer, broke up with my boyfriend of fifteen months, its been nuts, but seriously now Ive got my head screwed on straight and got no distractions now!

As weird as this sounds

As weird as this sounds

I kinda enjoy being angry or upset. It sounds weird but I don't know, I just find that it's easier for me to draw or take photo's or even write when I'm in one of my moods. Not upload but still. It's weird..... Anyways as I was going through my crap ton of finished art that most of the world has never seen before (so I can scan some/most/all) of it and put it on here, I  came across a pile of unfinished art! So I also have that to do. Woop-de-fucking-do.
