I'd like to take a moment to issue a very important "THANK YOU" to YOU! The deviantART Community. On the heels of our 12th Birthday, I've looked back at the projects that my team have undertaken and realized that in the last year, especially, the deviantART community has stepped up and helped to make projects like projecteducate and ArtHistoryProject successful. Without your contributions, interest, faves, feedback and participation, projects like these would go no where. I'm looking forward to more community interaction and participation projects and am always open to your feedback regarding projects or endeavors you'd li
Photography Troubleshooting: BackgroundsThis series of articles aims to answer the questions of Photographers on deviantART who have burning issues with their cameras. Have an issue? Leave a comment at the end of the article and we'll do our best to help you figure out the answer. Additionally if you have information that could help someone out - let us know!
"From when I used to do photography what I struggled with most was the backgrounds, I wanted to focus in on the objects and then I'd take it to my tutors and they'd go "it's nice but the background is your desk, or your bookshelf" Unless I'm shooting on an infinity curve I struggle to 'see' appropriate backgrounds for my set up..."

"Hi FionaCreates, backgrounds can either be a part of the photograph or apart from it (I'm quite pleased with what I did there ).
Many still life images, particularly in a 'studio' o
PE: Interview with some dA Haiku MastersHello all
As part of this weeks projecteducate, we have interviewed two members whose work is almost entirely focussed on fixed form poetry- and in this instance Eastern Poetry.
In my early deviantART days, Eastern poetry writing went through a popular phase. There were regular HaikuWriMo months, challenges and clubs; some of which still continue in their own ways. Two members who have continued that popularity and developed their skills in these forums are jade-pandora and moyanII- both owners of a huge collection of Eastern poetry, DD's and beautiful creative writing. Both these delightful deviants have taken the time to share their experiences in this interview.
jade-pandora was born in Los Angeles, California. She started writing seriously in 2001, joined deviantArt in 2003, and in 2007 discovered dA’s literature community when she stumbled into the HaikuWriMo of October 2007. Her fascination with Haiku dre
Literature DD Roundup- February Greetings all!
Another month has flown by, and another month of finding some wonderful pieces of writing to feature!
We are always really keen to receive suggestions for Daily Deviations, so please keep sending them in via note to either wreckling or Beccalicious. Think about your recent lit favourites- are any of them of that extra quality that makes them suitable for a DD?
Here is a summary of all the DDs that Trevor and I gave out this month.

Project Educate: Architecture and Urban & Rural Photography Week
Urban & Rural Photography Explored
Hi there and welcome to another Project Educate article! Today we will focus on Architecture Photography. By using examples of great architecture photography, I hope to clarify what the function of each subcategory is.
Urban & rural photography, found as photography subcategory Photography > Urban & Rural, is photography focusing on the entire area rather than an individual building or structure (like with Architecture). It is described by deviantART as; "Urban and rural photography focuses on the whole area or location, rather than the individual elements within."
It's divided into seven categories; City Life, Cityscapes & Skylines, Country Life, Gardens, Parks & Cemeteries, Industrial, Urban Exploration and Miscellaneous.

Self Harm Awareness day 1st March 2012
Today marks an awareness day over a subject that can mean many things to many people. Self Harm (or Self Injury) is the act of physical damage to oneself, usually as a coping strategy for expressing deep distress or coping in difficult situations. Self harm commonly is associated with cutting, but can also refer to any physical damage to the self including burning, hitting, taking overdoses, swallowing chemicals, bleaching, hair pulling ( trichotilliomania), scratching and so forth.
You may know what it is, but it is often the reasons why that people are not familiar with. There is still this belief and stereotype surrounding the type of person likely to harming them-self, but the truth is, it could be anyone no matter what gender, culture or age. The reasons behind self harm can be such a huge variety- different people cope in different ways with different distresses. Such issues that may trigger self harm might be bullying, t

Project Educate: Permission to Photograph People Permission to Photograph People
It's a tough topic and one that most of us like to shy away from rather than embrace, but the honest truth is that the shots of people that you get - the best kind - are the ones that are candid, journalistic or spontaneous. That usually means asking permission afterwards, or not asking permission at all - which can appear quite odd, to some. One of my biggest concerns and anxieties is having my camera out in public. I recently went to a beach, of all places, and was shooting the coastline when a horrible feeling crept over me and I realised that there were lots of people around and that I was invading, a little bit, on their privacy. These guidelines are useful for shooting on the street, at public gatherings and events and at more formal occasions such as weddings.
If the person is going to be the main subject of your photo - then it's kind to ask permission, get perm
Celebrating Diversity #26The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to post an article with deviations not from my area of expertise (Artisan Crafts) but from other Galleries that I almost never visit. This time I specifically searched for mediums that I enjoy but kind of forgot that I did.
Once again, I strongly encourage you to step out of your zone of comfort and take the time to discover or re-discover other types of art. The world is full of wonder and beauty, we just need to take the time and open our minds to see even more of it.

Photography Weekly: Edition Thirty FourPhotography Weekly Header created by TouchedD
"One Signature is worth a thousand implied tones..."
-Charles Swan -
In the news this week there has been a spotlight on Karren Brady, a photographer who has won a copyright ruling. The news article itself is interesting but the cautions that it turfs up for the future and current generations of photographers are slightly more concerning. The general feeling that has started to develop is that if you have assistance with setting up a shot, making a scene, posing a model and making up a person for example, those people may well have rights to your work. This is also being debated with regards to post-production and if you get somebody else to edit your work. What are your thoughts on this? And when attributing this to the deviantART community, what
Art History - Interview with Mollinda:iconarthistoryproject: :iconcommunityrelations:
As part of Traditional Art History Month I will be interviewing some of the Traditional Art Community, including your lovely TradART Community Volunteers
Today it's the totally awesome Mollinda, former Traditional Art Community Volunteer, now full time mother, artist and all-round darling.
Hi Mollinda, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
Herro, I'm Molly. I paint, I draw, I photograph... I just love art.
I draw and paint from photographs and from life as I love to make mundane, every day objects and situations into something beautiful (hopefully!) but I also cartoon and doodle monsters and all sorts of ridiculous things.
What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?
I love that it is tangible, that I can move materials around with my fingers and that there's no ctrl+z.
If you make a mistake, you ma
People + Portraits Photography Talent SpotlightKendra-Paige has been on deviantART for over eight years now and has made a strong mark on the people and portraits gallery especially with her fashion work. Her kit consists of a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon EF 85mm 1.2L II lens using various other lenses and focal lengths but repeatedly gravitating towards the 85mm. She uses a combination of lightroom and photoshop to post-process her work although she keeps her editing as minimal as possible as she doesn't enjoy the post-processing bit of photography!
Why did you choose people as a photographical interest?
I have always found people to be fascinating, and I have a particular interest in expressions and eyes. The eyes tend to be the focal point in a lot of my work, and typically dictate the image. Aside from this, it’s the collaborative effort that I enjoy in portraiture. When you take images of animals and nature, there is only so much control you have with the subject - a lot of it is luck
