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..." FionaCreates
"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
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

"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

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.
The City Life subcategory focu
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
