ElinorOn Friday, September 12th, 2014, Elinor (equivoque) lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer. For those that aren't familiar with Elinor, I'd like to take a moment to share her with you.Elinor joined deviantART back in 2005 and quickly established herself as someone to watch. Her use of the unconventional polaroid, sent a strong message that it wasn't about your equipment, at a time when digital was all the rage. Elinor, a vibrant part of this community, spent just over a year as a dedicated member of our volunteer team. Her passion for people and photography endeared her to many.In 2013, Elinor was a participant in the Boston Marathon and was about a mile short of finishing before she came to a police barricade. Two explosions had gone off at the finish line, killing three peop
ALL ABOUT FILMFILM PHOTOGRAPHYWe, the filmie team, present a little new series to all of you. Obviously we all love taking pictures on film, so we thought to spread our film love and hopefully inspire some of you to give it a go and also try out film photography - and hopefully fall in love as well!Some of you might have been using film a few years ago and then switched to digital, but a few probably never have tried film before, so it can be a bit scary. In order to help you get started, we created this little series, where we plan to cover different topics. And where better to start than with cameras, more precisely rangefinders. DougNZ selected a few cheap rangefinder models that might be the perfect entry - and on a really good budget!So here we go - let‘s see what DougNZ recommends!Looking for a high quality, sharp and sophisticated 35mm rangefinder but on a budget?You can’t beat the 1960s and 1970s models from Canon, Minolta, Olympus, Konica and so on. These camera
"Street": The origins - Defining StreetStreet Photography: The Origins As we all know from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding everything was invented by the Greeks.Well, ok we left some trivial things to be invented by the Chinese as well.What you may not know is that Street photography was also invented by the Greeks before Photography itself was even invented.Seriously now:Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment or "the supreme moment". The Greeks believed the concept of Kairos is achieved when such a moment is grasped for otherwise the moment is gone and cannot be re-captured. According to ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment.”Interestingly the ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. Whi
Communities rely on Pillars made of HeartCommunities of all kinds are held up by pillars made of heart. Typically embodied by people who let the weight of their community rest on their shoulders, willing to let life be life. Sometimes it hurts, and sometimes it's comfortable. Regardless, the result is a halo that surrounds all participants in a community. The healing light of being mothered, fathered or cared for.These are very special people who take this role in your community. Maybe this person is you. In which case, please be you today, and every day. Because you are very important.For the rest of us, we all know who the pillars are that hold up the communities that we care about. We all know the value of what they do, especially when we stop to think about it.There is nothing in life that I have ever found a deeper admiration for than people who take on this role. Pillars of Community. When a human being digs their heels in, claims territory and begins to show Love towards a group of people, they begin to embody
Read all about itI'm currently working on a plan to revive and relaunch a regular Community Operations newsletter. My intention is to include information about what goes in within the team, e.g. talking about actual specific roles, staff interviews and relevant talking points within the community. Would this be useful to you guys? What other sort of information would you like to see included? How important are statistics to you? Can I ask any more questions in a paragraph? We're also going to be on dAmn at some point over the coming weeks (date to be confirmed) to take some questions from the community. Not "boxers or briefs?" type questions. (100 points to the first person who can relay the story behind that reference.)Meantime, if you're eager to know more about how we work, make sure you stop by kozispoon's gallery and check out the many hilarious comics that are inspired by our day to day shenanigans in Comm Ops.
Friday night Specials v8.4If you like what you see, this article so it can reach as many deviants as possible.A weekly selection amongst the images I liked, while browsing the Street Galleryand I think they deserve more attention. Enjoy them, comment on them and remember to visit the photographers' galleries as well.Have a nice weekend.
Stupid new symbols?I am at work writing this journal, a lot of noise around me, so it will be awesome to concentrate and write this. It's even better to write a journal about my personal opinion, something that I usually regret deeply after writing. However I feel like I have to write about it right now, even if the situation I am in isn't the best one. Mainly because I usually keep very quiet when something new comes out and try not to get involved. But at some point you just feel that enough is enough. So take it as you wish, I try not to offend anyone. I just want to write how I feel about this.That being said, I would like to write about the new deviantART symbols and overall changes. A lot of drama around it, something that I like! I still remember a quote-like story from Randy Pausch's last lecture:Coach Graham rode you pretty hard, didn't he?" he said.I could barely muster a "yeah."That's a good thing," the assistant told me. When you're screwing up and nobody says anything to you anymore, it

Points are NOT DollarsOh hi, guys! I'm going to talk a little about points this morning. They're cute. They're fun to trade and deviants like getting them! But, I've wanted to write up a journal about this for quite a while now. It's a reminder of what points actually are and for artists to not grossly undercharge for their work. There's lots of tips out there to help artists settle on a price that is fair to them as creators and to their buyers, but I understand it's entirely too easy to undersell yourself. It's difficult to find that balance between making an actual profit and scaring off any potential customers! This is coming from an artist that still struggles with it herself.It's a tiny bit easier to come to a decision when thinking in terms of real dollars. Unfortunately, I've noticed that understanding is lost when art is sold for points here on dA. And when a creator totally GETS it and charges a fair price in points, they're often told they're overcharging. But, for the most part, both creators a
UPDATE: Selling LOTS of DevWear and DevGearTime for the first real update. Sorry that I keep spamming this journal, but I am still trying to make sales. So please deal with me for a while longer.Its been a while since I launched this, and its been an overwhelming response. I am so thrilled and very very thankful. Everyone who has purchased devwear and/or helped to promote my sales are now officially super awesome and wonderful people in my life. Thanks to everyone, I'm proud to say the following.I have paid off the remainder of my car insurance, saving myself $125 a month. I was debating for the first several days on paying down my credit card, but then I realized my balance for my insurance was low enough where I could pay it off, and I still had some money to pay off my card.Any money that I get from this point on will go towards helping to pay off my Discover card. Credit cards are such double edge swords. It was what helped me through the worst of everything, but now I need to pay it down. I
deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing. I feel much the same way about deviantART. I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
Don't want "News" where "Jour......nal" should be..so now this "journal" exists.Quotations because, haha, I have no idea if these terms have any meaning anymore. In case you are not aware- prior to posting this journal, my last posted News article was on my page and I am not much of a fan of that. All the other changes occurring I can tolerate.The fact that the line between journals and news and deviations is now, mostly, non-existent I find it troubling; disappointing.TL;DR- I'd be REEAALLLL happy if i were to at least have just the one tiny OPTION to not have my news pop up on my front page.
