"Eyes like a Shutter, mind like a Lens" - Anon



This week the general thoughts come from Eitvys200 who brought up the topic of Too many cameras around?! It's one that baffles many from amateur to professional in deciding what we, as artists, want to use as our tools. Hopefully one of our community volunteers will cover that in greater depth next week in an article all about choosing your next or even first camera. But for now the confusion comes when you're lining up to take a shot and somebody next to you with a mobile/cell phone is taking the same one and truth be told - it might even turn out better. I broached the subject a while ago of standing at a wedding and being the 'pro' but not the only one with a £500 camera. How do you make yourself unique in a digital world that's fast developing beyond our means and capabilities? Well, you work with what you've got, first and foremost. What's your camera? What brands do you go for or steer clear of?




Community Relations News


This week many new faces (and old ones!) came on board to be part of the :communityrelations: team. You can read a bit more about them in this article. Then even MORE community volunteers joined the team and then! Even more! So here is a few links that might be useful in seeking out who they are:
:bulletblue: Additions to the Team!

:bulletblue: EVEN more!

And finally, you may have seen World by now. It's an incredible map that shows just what's happening on deviantART across the world - right now! Warning - mesmerizing stuff.




Spotlight Deviant


figueline has been here for just two years but has made a fantastic impression with a gallery full of a wide range of works. figueline takes the ordinary and makes into something surreal but emotive.

Photography Books


Photographing Weather seemed fitting to feature this week and it's a fantastic book which you can find on Amazon.
"The weather is a fundamental consideration for any photographer who
works out of doors, but it can also be a fascinating photographic
subject in its own right. This unique book, by a prominent specialist in
the field, shows you how to identify cloud formations and other
meteorological phenomena, and how to capture them convincingly on
camera. You cant avoid the weather, so why not learn to make the most of
it?"
