Project Educate: See the light and remember it
See the light and remember it
Lighting in photography is a living, changing art. One of the most important abilities of a photographer is to see light and to remember it. Light is the most changing element in our daily life. We move among solid objects and among people who do not change drastically during a day or a week. But visually the appearance of our environment and of people around us may change from one hour to the next due to the time of day, the weather, or the particular source of light. Photographers are aware of these changes and store in their memory the impact different types of light have on our emotions and our subconscious. For a photographer, watching the light becomes second nature.
Some of the photographer's palette of tools:
-The angle of light
-Quality (hard or soft)
Angle of light
My 7 years on dAWow, seven years have passed since I joined this site. That's quite a long time. I still remember how I felt on the first day I signed up, there weren't many sites on which people could actually talk about art, express their feelings, create, be happy or sad, sometimes disappointed. dA has improved so much since it started, and I know there are some mixed feelings concerning this site. Not everyone has a good opinion about it, that's for sure. Some may say that the old dA was better concerning the works submitted. I still think that among all the 'art' sites, it is still the one that has quite a large variety if you know where to look. It's not about the front page, it's not about being popular, it's about making friends that share the same thoughts as you and that are honest in their beliefs and opinions. It's about growing as an artist by reading articles, participating in different events, sharing your work and appreciating other people's works.
I once thought that the best th
Thank you for the support + Feature!Hello, rainy day.

The wellness of your camera sensorHow many of you remove the sensor dust from your digital camera's sensor on a regular basis? Sometimes, services can be expensive or you just don't have time to take your cameras to be checked and cleaned whenever it needs to.
Here are some tips on how you can spot the dust on your camera sensor effectively and how to remove it.
Checking your sensor.
Shooting the test image
Start off by setting your ISO to the lowest (normal) range, for example 100 for Canon and 200 for Nikon;The test shot has to be completely out of focus, so go ahead and manual focus to infinity on a piece of paper OR to close focus for the sky;Now it's time to set the aperture. It's usually okay to set your aperture at f/22, that way all the spots are well defined and ready to lift off! What lens to use? Usually something like a teleph

Musical DreamNice and slowly.
Beauty is a destructive angel, how could anything that looks so good be so bad?
But there is no angel as destructive as their greed,
In the end she gets them all.
They think they can handle her, but greed is the only snake that can not be charmed
Revolver, Guy Ritchie
Moonlight Sonata, Beethoven
I've always loved the piano, but I was never given the chance to play one. We didn't have any money when I was little, and my mom had to work all day in order to support me and my sister. I did receive an old piano toy from someone, it looked something like this:
So I used to transform the musical symbols/notes into numbers and I had a whole notebook with those But someday, I'd like to learn it for real, even if some might say it's too late.
With that being said, I'd like to show you guys/girls/people/bros some beautiful piano artworks from dA. Enjoy!
My interview for Limmie MagazineFor anyone interested, here's a sneak peek of my interview for Limmie Magazine.
Some words about it
At first, I had no idea what this magazine is about. I had no knowledge about it. But all I can say is that they're trying to make it a successful magazine through their hard work. They're still on their first editions, but the thing I liked about it is that they're trying to promote and share the work of a lot of creative people.
I've read about (and seen) photographers, designers, filmmakers, digital artists, illustrators, etc. each with their own point of view about art, and more specifically, about their way of creating and exposing their feelings into what they do.
4th DD - What a surprise!I got my 4th Daily Deviation today, wow! I didn't have the slightest clue that one of my textures pack would get a DD, I was pretty surprised when I logged in this morning.
So thank you, Elandria for featuring it!
For a long time I wanted to upload some of these, so that people may have fun with them and (why not?) help them in creating beautiful art.
These were shot with the poor photographer's method of macro - with two lenses, one on top of another, the top one inverted.
Hard to believe, but this was the jelly from a piece of cake I ate some time ago.
Features No 85-As much as you can...
Even if you can't shape your life the way you want,
at least try as much as you can
not to degrade it
by too much contact with the world,
by too much activity and talk.
Do not degrade it by dragging it along,
taking it around and exposing it so often
to the daily silliness
of social relations and parties,
until it comes to seem a boring hanger-on.

Have a good week,my lovely friends!Take care!
Inspiring Digital Artworks Try browsing dA. Many of the most popular artworks ever are uploaded in Digital Art gallery. Then have a look at some of the most popular digital works in the last hours and compare them to some other popular deviations from different categories. What do you notice? - What i did a long time ago: there's a difference between them; digital artworks usually have more views, more comments, more faves. And it made me wonder "Why is that?" - Is it because many people are fans of fantasy characters and great landscapes? Is it because they enjoy looking at an enhanced figure or at a reality-defying picture?
Of course they do, but that's not the only reason. It's mostly because people appreciate good work and stunning details, which are sometimes harder or impossible to achieve through other arts. It is also because this is the medium that imposes no limits to your power of creation - you ca
Weekly Features and ThanksSo to clear out the air and to breath deep I'll make a feature of all the amazing art I loved this week and also I want to show the amazing gifts I got .
Besides I wanted to share with all of you a good news. I have a friend who is a professional photographer and he was about to win the World Press Photo this year. He works with amazing models and do amazing campaigns for important fashion magazines and commercial companies . He practice Tae Kwon Do with me and we were talking about what we do and when he knew I was this newbie photoshoper he said he was interested in seeing my work. He didn't see it still but even tho he wants me to make a piece for him with a high quality picture he is going to send me and he wants me to go wild on it and do whatever comes to mind. I'm so nervous about it because he is an amazing artist and I'm just.....well me . So I'm waiting for him to send me the piece and can't wait to see what will I come up with. Hope I do well and who knows mayb

DD Feature, A Word About Pre-Cuts, and SkypeHiya Darlings,
So here is the promised feature of our group members who have received a DD so far this year! I’d like to say congratulations to everyone! For those who haven’t received one yet, don’t give up hope! Everyone submits some fantastic stock and I absolutely love seeing the daily submissions. I’d also like to take a moment and welcome all of our new members!
Before we get to the feature I want to take a moment and talk about Pre-Cut Stocks. Like any stock, they should adhere to our group and rules. This means:
They must be your own work, or have written permission from the photographer to create them from.
You absolutely, under no circumstances, ever take photos from GOOGLE IMAGE or other online retail, blogs, photography, or other websites to create pre-cut stock. The same includes stock websites like sxc.hu. This also applies to ALL pre-made backgrounds or Photoshop/GIMP brushes!
Friends Feature 1Time for a mixed Feature
