Prints Available on EtsySome friends of mine have been pestering me for some time to make prints of my work available. And since another friend has the necessary equipment, I'm finally able to do that. In preparation, I've been reworking some of my old pieces just a little. So if you're so inclined, stop by and check me out.
Thank you most kindly for your support.
Oh My GoodnessI just got back from a long walk down a country road in the dark under the full moon with the glow of my town on the horizon, and with music in my ears. I even danced a little, because nobody was watching but God and the fireflies, and also because I was a little bit tipsy. It was kind of damp, but the earth smelled wonderful. You should try it some time.
Also, I've promised more than once to upload a large oil painting of Jesus, which I've been working on for years. I'm still working on it. I was just wrong about its being almost done, but this has been exacerbated by the fact that I keep thinking of things I want to add to it. One of these days. Soon.
All Of This Music"I hear in my mind all of these voices
I hear in my mind all of these words
I hear in my mind all of this music
And it breaks my heart"

10 000 PageviewsHuzzah! I finally made it to 10 000 pageviews. And it only took me just under seven years. A hearty thanks to all those who have visited and supported my work in any way. I am self-deprecating but grateful.
Also: whenever I see pictures of Miley Cyrus or the Jonas Brothers or suchlike on the front page, I like to report them for art theft, because I think that's wrong. And whenever I see an artless close-up some guy took of his own hairy thigh and flaccid penis, I like to comment, "Aww! It's little but really cute! Looks like it tries real hard." The same goes for women. "Oh, you have boobs. We hadn't noticed."

Imagine that you are a young social worker, dedicated to finding out the hidden and forgotten old souls who haunt the cold, mean streets of the city. You seek to report on their living conditions, possibly recommending they be removed from their roach-infested “homes.”

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

Ten Portrait Photography TipsPeople & Portrait Photography
Check your Angles
Avoid unflattering angles, don't frame your model with their arms or legs chopped off unless it works for the image. If in doubt, fully frame them and do the chopping afterwards in post-processing! Don't forget to check that the tops of their heads and their feet are in focus. Missing feet are disconcerting!
Be the Director
As the Photographer, most people will be looking to you for direction. There's no time to be shy when you're behind the camera! Keep calm to help your model remain relaxed but make sure they're not made to feel awkward if you lack giving instruction. Pose them well, avoid direct bright sunlight and check out your background.
Eye contact...or not
Eye contact isn't always necessary, in fact candid journalistic style photographs often work best. Your subject doesn't have to be looking directly at the camera for it to be a successful shoot, but yo
