Summer timeHey dear watchers! I don't know if someone read this anymoar, but I'll keep writing sometimes (why not).
First of all, sorry for the lack of photos. I'll be finishing my classes and projects soon, and this is one of the reasons I'm not uploading anything lately.
I have some new projects on my mind for this summer and I hope I can do them.
Also I want to remind you that you can like my new page on facebook (it would make me happy)
And for now, nothing more to say.
Thanks for those who keep following me and watching (even you don't fav) my work!!
Hello worldIt's been a long time since the last journal, although I've been uploading some works.
I want to let you know that I have opened a new Facebook Page, where maybe you will find pics that I won't upload on here. Also I created a new Portfolio on Cargocollective.
So here I let you all the links. Take a look on them, please and click on the thumb if you like the page. THANK YOU!
Hello everybodyIt's been a long time since I don't write anything here and it looks pretty death all in general. I wonder if someone is going to read this (although I don't have anything interesting to say).
As you can see I've been a little bit innactive here and also I spend like 3 month without taking any pictures so I couldn't upload anything good. But now that I have new photos I can submit some of them, so hope you like it!!
Also you can find me in other social networks:

Hello dear watchersHello my dearest descendants. I know that lately I'm not uploading any photography. I come back from my holidays a few weeks ago and I have some pictures I can submit, but I'm still working on it. I also have some problems with my computer and now that it's fixed, I leave the old one (where I used to work on my photos) so it's for that that I'm not submitting lately xD yeah, I'm lazy. But I promise you all that I will be back with new photos. Hope you like them!
Apart from that, I started my classes a week a go. I'm excited for my new subjects but abit lazy to leave summer and start working har again... But well, c'est la vie!
I hope you have a nice week.
GOOD-BYE!Hello dear deviants! I just write this journal to say that tomorrow at morning I will go to France for two or three weeks so I won't post anything (although I don't post anything very often, lately. SO SORRY!) but I promise that I will post cool pics when I come back.
Also in 6 days my premium membership will expire Someone want to give me some points or give me a 3 month (or more!) account?
Have a nice day, weekends, week and so on.
Hello, summer days.Long time I don't write anything here on my journal! Is someone here? Hello?
Lately I don't submit a lot of photos because I don't take anything interesting (at least to post here). It's sad I know but in August I will go to France so I will have tons of new photos. Wait for it!
I also write this journal to know if someone from here have Google+ or if they want an invitation. If you have an account I would like to add you on a circle, so tell me how I can find you or sth and if you want an invitation just let me a comment or a note with your gmail and I will send one.
Apart from that, you can find me on tumblr and if you want to see other photos from my photoprojects, you can go to my flickr account and aaaalso you can follow me on twitter if you want! I leave all the links you can find me here ↓

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

JULY Challenge WATER last day to vote:icontransparentplz:
All works here
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .
These prizes c
Freelance Paychecks are RealA few weeks back while thinking about this journal, I came across a forum for paid photojournalism jobs. I left it some time later in complete shock. There I found posting after posting about jobs paying nothing, next to nothing, or promising payment and then paychecks never arriving in the mail. I sat there, closed the laptop lid, and thought for a long while.
I know I’m fortunate to be paid for what I do. A big part of this is because I specialize in something very few photographers are doing at a professional level. But what most people don’t realize is that even at this level a large percentage of my workload involves pay negotiations. There are contracts that took months of negotiation. Some took weeks, or a single week, or several days, or a flurry of emails or texts in just a few minutes.
Every single one of those initially low-balled me; offering me starting contracts at 10-20% of my regular rate. And despite publications th

ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
Keep in Touch!
