“Today everything exists to end in a photograph.”
~Susan Sontag

Firstly, let me share the stunning! This fantastic artist has created a series of photographs that showcase humans interacting with graffiti. Check out the article here and you won't be disappointed! And if you're interested in traditional types of photography then check out this series of Nostalgic tintypes - guaranteed to fool you into thinking they are a blast from the past - if only for a second. Zack Seckler has shared some fantastic Humorous Photography which could certainly serve to educate a few people about the true definition of the humorous photography gallery here on deviantART. Let's leave that one for another week...shall we?!
In more technology orientated news, the BBC is asking whether Smartphones will be replacing traditional cameras pretty soon in the near future. What do you think? Do you find yourself reaching for your mobile phone more often than your actual 'camera' to take a snap? And in the news this week the top stories have been focusing on the rise of the Concordia. Not a horror movie - a cruise ship! Check out these Underwater Shotstaken on board the sunken vessel. And finally, because I'd be equally heart broken if my camera and images were lost - why not consider helping out this couple and sharing to help bring theirs back.

General Photography News

Community Volunteers Kaz-D + 3wyl

It was the Artists Toolbox week over at projecteducate last week which means that lots of awesome things got shared. If you're interested in writing a tool focused article for November just let me know. But Photography related, I wrote this article which focuses on how you can make some simple DIY tools to save money (and time!) There are some great tutorials out there on the web as well and the useful ones this week include The Photography basics for children and babies and Photographing the Elements.

Over at CRPhotography we're well underway with Comment month. For more information and to participate for the chance to get feedback and points, check out this blog. We're also working on our contest proposal for this space!

I stepped outside of my Photography comfort zone last week and ventured into the Artisan Crafts gallery to Celebrate Diversity. Are you a regular browser of photography? Fancy a more diverse range of art? Head into a different gallery and share what you find!


Photography Contests, Projects and Challenges

I found this early this week which I thought was pretty awesome. Wikipedia are bringing their very own Photography competition to the UK. In a bid to try and document and share as many monuments as possible - and education - Wikipedia are challenging you to capture those memorable sights. For more info go here. For DeviantART related contests, check out CRPhotography's blog for more info on the latest contests found here.

News and Events from Chats + Forums!

Check out photohunt where games are going on almost all the time - if you're there! The task is you will be given a word and you have 20 minutes to go shoot it and post it in the Photohunt Chat Best photo wins! I dare you guys to come play just ONE game. You will be hooked. Also check out the Chat Events Calendar especially with Halloween coming up next month!

Spotlight Deviant

LashelleValentine has been on deviantART for over two years and has a gallery well worth checking out. With a mixture of conceptual portraiture, still life photography and nature - there's something for everybody to enjoy.

Nom Nom showcased Marzipan last week. If you've got a food craving and would love to see some awesome dA works featured, just drop me a note with your suggestion! An old article, but hopefully useful, is Ten tips for photographing food. Check it out if you're unsure where to start! If you're looking for some cake this evening check out Nom Nom - cake! Also includes some interesting bits of cake trivia!
