"Photohack; a strategy or technique adopted in order to manage one's Photography in a more time effective and cost effective way."



Last month an article focusing on DIY Photography Tools was posted and we asked you to contribute your own DIY Photo 'Hacks.' Lots of you commented and contributed, so here is a DeviantART Photo Hacks blog to round them up and keep them all in one place. If you have a tip, cheat or hint that you'd like to share comment here and we will update the blog!

"To get a double exposure look with your photos try shooting with a prism in front of you lens. For another interesting shot try shooting through a glass ball. This can also be used to achieve a Fish Eye type effect. See below for an example!"

"- Nylon stockings are great for achieving a softening effect. Also try welding glass as a cheap alternative for ND filters."

"There are some great ways of achieving a DIY Macro set up for your Photography. Here's mine below..."

"The most diy I've done for soft boxes/lighting is using a lamp like the one that's pixar's mascot and either tapping thin paper over it or a pillow case for small objects/creatures."

NEWmonthly bake off by Kaz-D

Update: There's still plenty of time to participate! Why not get baking this weekend?!

The monthly Bake Off!  is designed to make you bake or cook something! You have a whole month to plan what you'd like to do and there are various ways in which you can win some prizes. Last month the theme was bread and participants were given a fairly wide scope of what they could do. Well done to those who took the time to enter - here are the winners!

Photographic Talent


Home bakery by june-june
By june-june who didn't bake these rolls but took the photograph so is well deserving of the photographic talent prize this month!

Recipe Talent


Brioche with Camembert by Icedrop21
By Icedrop21 - this looks absolutely amazing and is a great arrangement as well as a fabulous recipe. Baked Camembert Brioche!

You can check out the other entries for November by visiting  this gallery folder.

Decembers Theme!



This month the theme is 'Winter Loaf.' It's sort of in-keeping with bread but isn't bready it's more cakey! So you can createa  loaf of your choice, cinnamon, chocolate, iced, banana, apple and so on. Something warm and wintery would fit the remit. If you'd like a recipe check out my Loaf from earlier this month...

2 by Kaz-D

Ingredients:

200g Self Raising Flour
75g Butter
100g Light Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 Apples (Peeled, cored and sliced)
3 eggs (beaten)

Method:

Grease two loaf tins (or buy the awesome ones from Homebase that I mentioned the other day. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees c and get stuck in!

Place the flour and butter in a bowl and rub together until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Then stir in the sugar and cinnamon.

Mix the apples in and add the eggs, beat until all ingredients are combined. Split your mixture between two loaf tins, be sure not to overfill them!

Bake in the oven for around 30 – 45 minutes until they have risen and are golden. Enjoy warm (because that’s the best way to have cake!)

It would be great to include your own recipe in your artist comments especially if you choose to get creative as you could win a prize just for that!

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom

I came to deviantART looking for an outlet to share my literature work. Imagine my surprise when I look back now and find myself, eight years later, a Photography Community Volunteer and an avid Photographer. In fact, I've just spent a year taking a handful of Photos every day as part of the 365 challenge. If you want to talk to me about motivation, inspiration, finding things to Photograph and general 'sticking at stuff' then do please give me a shout!

I started off three years ago as the Abstract and Surreal Photography CV, I then took on Conceptual as well and now I cover General Photography along with 3wyl. My every day work, like so many of us here, is unrelated to Art almost completely.

I'm about to embark on a career as a Care Manager for my local council. I just finished studying a degree in Social Policy and Criminology and I'm about to move into my first house with TouchedD! In my spare time (whenever that is) I like to explore the world with TouchedD, poke dead things with a stick and take my dog who has naughty feet, for walkies.

Daily Deviation Guidelines


Photobucket


I'm one of two General Photography CVs!



  • 3wyl and I only take Photography suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps). We also cannot feature anything from a gallery that already has CV looking after it. Check out communityrelations for the latest list.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

How to suggest


Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.
I try and reply to all suggestions made.
