DD and Upcoming Contestdaily deviation and upcoming contest
A bit late thank you goes to The-Average-Alex for suggesting and Moonbeam13 for featuring my "Black Swan" piece. Its my 4th DD and I am really honored. Thank you goes to deviantArt`s FB page as well for featuring the work over there as well. Feedback was amazing.
I am planning on hosting a new contest. Inspired by the great feedback on my interpretation of Black Swan movie piece I decided it would be a good idea to host a contest where you would have to create an artwork based on a movie, song, video game etc. As long as its not a typical fan art but it incorporates your own vision.
I have a nice amount of prizes to donate myself, but I do need a help from a community. So if you would like to donate anyting please drop me a note, it would be appreciated.

Need help with some php files for websiteOkay, like the title says, I need some urgent help with some php files for my new website design.
The design is purchased from themeforest, for some reason, its missing few php files required for contact form to work properly. Few other things as well. And since my skills are quite poor when it comes to any kind of coding I need help. Willing to pay.
Anyone that is able to help, please note me!

Issues with viewing deviationsWebsite | Facebook | Prints | Google + | Twitter | MySpace | Delicious | f.a.q.
DevArt has been acting weird for me, while the page itself loads fine I cannot view any thumbs or user avatars, deviation takes forever to load, notes as well. I have a lot of unread notes but when trying to open one I usually get error message, two "XX" or nothing at all. Comments I can acess, but replying to them and waiting to "send" the reply is also taking forever. I checked the forums as well as posted my own topic but no help so far, tho I would like to thank all

Ten Portrait Photography TipsPeople & Portrait Photography
Check your Angles
Avoid unflattering angles, don't frame your model with their arms or legs chopped off unless it works for the image. If in doubt, fully frame them and do the chopping afterwards in post-processing! Don't forget to check that the tops of their heads and their feet are in focus. Missing feet are disconcerting!
Be the Director
As the Photographer, most people will be looking to you for direction. There's no time to be shy when you're behind the camera! Keep calm to help your model remain relaxed but make sure they're not made to feel awkward if you lack giving instruction. Pose them well, avoid direct bright sunlight and check out your background.
Eye contact...or not
Eye contact isn't always necessary, in fact candid journalistic style photographs often work best. Your subject doesn't have to be looking directly at the camera for it to be a successful shoot, but yo
Lighting in Portrait PhotographyPeople and Portraits week
I'm writing this tutorial of sorts, for all of you portrait photographers out there seeking advice about the lighting in your photographs. First off let me be clear in saying that I am no expert, or rather I do not claim to be, I sometimes do things in unusual ways, and my tips and advice are definitely not the only ones you should follow. This journal is just me giving you my take on how to get great lighting for your shots
1. Never shoot when the sun is at its highest peak.
Depending on where you live and your climate, this might vary, but I usually never shoot between the hours of 12-4 unless I'm shooting indoors, or it's a cloudy day. If you're doing an outdoors shoot and the sun is blasting on your model, you are very unlikely to get good results. Not only will it be uncomfortable for your model, and make it difficult to pose with a natural expression (sun in your eyes, worst feeling in the world),

All Here For A ReasonI turned onto a shady, well-manicured driveway that, for all intents and purposes, looked harmless enough. Maple trees lined both sides of the street, and a parade of Canadian geese marched across the road to a wide duck pond with a flamboyant fountain. There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.
I stopped to let the geese pass. They looked at me; one hissed. I honked my horn and moved around them.
At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
I was shaking when I got out of my car. I had spent the morning getting high. One foot in front of the other, flip-flop noises, hot sidewalk. Mulberry and magnolia trees, freshly shaved grass. A bench and pan for smokers. A set o
