"Life is like a camera... Just focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't turn out – take another shot"
"One of the biggest mistakes a photographer can make is to look at the real world and cling to the vain hope that next time his film will somehow bear a closer resemblance to it...If we limit our vision to the real world, we will forever be fighting on the minus side of things, working only too make our photographs equal to what we see out there, but no better."
"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."
"Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about money, masters worry about light, I just take pictures..."
"Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world."
"Take nothing but pictures. Kill nothing but time. Leave nothing but footprints."
John Kay - "Nothing But"

Themed Feature - Raw Emotions
Welcome to another themed feature!
We all know them: happy moments, sad moments; times when we think we can't go further, when we just want to scream to get the pent-up emotions out; and the feeling of comfort once we found someone to confide in and the willingness to start again.

The Golden Hour Photography Contest - CLOSED!You still have two weeks (until May 31st) to get your entry in.
Hello and Welcome to my second Photography Contest!
Thanks to everyone who suggested ideas for the next contest, their time will come, too.
I'm going to go with christycameasromans's idea: The golden hour.
This way no one can complain ("It's not spring/summer where I live...")
and everybody's happy!
What is the golden hour?!
The golden hour (also known as magic hour)is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder/more golden and softer compared to when the Sun is higher in the sky.
The Rules - read them!
No b/w pictures, which is obvious I guess.
Again, you're entry does not have to especially made for this contest, but I would love it.
So your photographs have to submitted after June 2014!
One (1) entry per deviant!
Like last time, leave a comment with your entry or note me!

Oh, guys. Do you remember those little contests I used to host back when I had money for prizes? Me too. And I miss them. So I've decided to ignore my oft-dire financial situation and bring them back.
The primary purpose of these contests is to have art-based fun. While there is obviously that element of competition there, the idea is to enjoy the process of creating your art rather than worrying about winning. It's not about perfection, it's not about skill, it's about doing. You have an
