Hidden treasures V.II
Remember when you were new to dA?  How no-one paid any attention to your work, despite all the effort you put in?  So do we!  That’s why TW1STEDP1X & I decided to bring you this feature.  After the success of Volume 1 we’re really hoping to make this a regular feature!  
Here you will find our top photography with little or no recognition.  Our aim is to give them the exposure (pun intended) they deserve, and hopefully some of you will take the time to give them your feedback.  We are a community, share your knowledge and help others improve, or just applaud them for a piece well done.   
We all need a little help here & there to make us better at what we do, whether we take courses to learn these skills or just feel our way along.  These photographers have what it takes; don’t let them think “what’s the point if no-one even looks at my work, or will offer g

You're Featured!: Portrait Edition
There are many different styles of portrait photography.  Classic, Fashion, Glamour, Emotive, Spontaneous, you name it, there's probably a way the word 'portrait' can be added to the end of it.  These pieces are done by artists who took advantage of the vast subject of 'portrait-shooting' and did a great job!

It’s always amazing how many treasures go undiscovered and just end up staying in the back of the photography section…unless of course we find and expose them. ;)

The Dark Side of Fetish - CONTEST
- THE DARK SIDE OF FETISH – (LAST WEEK!)
STARTS – Monday 26th February
ENDS – Monday 23rd April
RESULTS – Monday 30th April

MORE INFORMATION AND ALL ENTRIES DISPLAYED HERE ----> http://distortedsmile.deviantart.com/journal/11906162/

-OUTLINE-
So what is the Dark Side of Fetish? What does it mean to you?
There is a fine line between Fetish images and those of the Macabre and Horror variety. Whilst both are categories have many stunning images in their own right, some of the most interesting are those that dance that line between the two genres.
There is nothing to say you must splatter your models with blood. There is nothing to say you must not. - The ratio of Fetish to Macabre is completely up to you.
I am more interested in your views of the Dark Side of Fetish than setting you specific guidelines. This can include any aspects of Fetish, Dark, Emotive, Surreal and Macabre imagery that you wish.
Enjoy. Create. Amaze.

Scenics

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 21, 2011, 12:00 AM
Been a while...

I now work in theater as a scenic designer, prop maker and charge artist. Sometimes I am a stage manager as well.

Gave up my graphic design business and fired my clients!! It was kind of freeing :)

Below are some of my latest things. I feel pretty happy with the results!

Visit Photohunt at chat.deviantart.com/chat/Photo…. You should play, it is total fun and pushes your creativity to another level.

My latest work...




The set of TRYING in Coronado, CA


Another scenic of KILLER JOE! Such a bloody show...
