Short UpdateHello Everybody
I hope all of you are doing well ?
This is just a short update to let all of you know that i am still alive.
I had my final exams a few weeks ago and all in all it went pretty well.
( i still have to take two oral examinations and i am kinda afraid of that but hopefully they will be okay as well )
Since i had to study quite a bit i wasn't able to take as many photos.
( moreover i am one of these people that are pretty unmotivted in general in winter )
I am so happy that it is starting to get warm now and that there are flowers everywhere.
When i am done with school i will have about 3 month of freetime until i am going to start studying in a university in october.
( for me it is a really weird thought that i will be living on my own in about half a year from now )
But since i am going to study a subject where i can take photography classes i hope that i will also improve my skills in photography !
Oh and tha
Happy New Year !
I really hope that you have spent a nice New Year's Eve
and that all of you gonna have an awesome 2014 ♥
( i filmed some heart firework for you )
I am really sorry that i don't spend that much time on DeviantArt anymore
Even thought i upload some photos once in a while i am not active at all.
( writing journals, features, polls, commenting aso. )
And to be honest i don't really know why, it's not that i am that busy or anything.
I guess it mostely is because of the fact that i am really uncreative at the moment.... but i am trying to change that !
The last year was awesome photography wise, i spent so much time taking photos and really enjoyed it ♥
Concearning real life it was a really boring year, nothing special happened at all, life just went on as usual.
Next year will be different, i will take my exams and finish school !
That's a huge step for me since i will go to an university af
Shaped Bokeh ( Tutorials and Feature )Since i got asked a lot how i do the shaped bokeh photos i decided to write a short journal about it
I won't write my own tutorial since there are already a lot of great tutorials out there and i do the absolutely same thing
First some "normal bokeh" tutorials :
and the Wiki Article : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh
most important facts :
- aperature as big as possible -> small number ( i use the canon 50mm 1.8 )
- some sort of light to create visible bokeh ( e.g. christ

3000+ Watchers : Thank you / Free PS ActionsWhen i checked my Stats yesterday and noticed that i already got past 3000 watchers !
I am so grateful to every person that even views my works and of course i am even happier if they appreciate them.
I know that i am really inactive in things like answering comments, notes and taking the time to appreciate the work of others.
But please don't think i am ungrateful for all of that, because that's really not the case.
On the contrary, your compliments really encourage me and make me smile !
I am kind of trying to figure out what i want to do with my life after i finished school and of course i have to get good marks to
leave as many options open as possible. I hope you do understand that.
I am still taking photos ( which you probably know ), since it's a important time for me to just take my dog and
go for a long walk searching for pretty flowers or ladybugs or just sit in my room for hours trying to take pretty photos.
Unfortunately all the things around it, like answering comm

The Storyteller by jrtracey
What kind of new narratives will 21st Century storytellers create for our changing world?
Brain Games host Jason Silva tackled that question in a two-minute video called "Lucid Dreaming," outlining the tremendous opportunities (and challenges) facing 21st Century storytellers. As our relationship to technology evolves, the stories we tell each other

Google homepage art I did by jimlee00
For those of you keeping current, the Google logo on the Google homepage is occasionally altered, sometimes to bring attention to an event, sometimes to celebrate famous artists and scientists on their birthdays. These clever alterations are “doodles” and they are often created by guest artists.

Supers V Wonder by JoshJ81
The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.
Collection: Snowed In
There is no more stark dichotomy than the conflicting feelings we have about the wintertime. Many find the snow–blanketed landscape makes winter the most serenely beautiful of the seasons. But people die of exposure in the cold. The idea of being “snowed in” evokes thoughts of fireplaces and hot chocolate and snuggling under piles of blankets, of family reunions and gift–giving, and taking an annual “time–out.”
But it also means lost work hours and school days and danger should someone need to go to the hospital through white–out conditions on ice–glazed roads. Winter is the most beautiful but also the

Hello dear members of TheFavouriteShowcase, friends and deviants,
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of 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!

All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watcher
Collection: For The Love of Dog
For the love of dog
The problem with lovers and spouses is that they have their own separate lives. They can’t always wake in the morning to a day of loving you until it’s time to close their eyes to sleep at night with their heads filled with thoughts of you. There are some activities necessary for their human existence that must be attended to, no matter how much you need a foot massage. Not so with dogs. Your dog lives only for you. Dogs are instinctive pack animals and you are the Leader of the Pack.
Scientists now report that your dog “reads” your pheromones and other subtle scent indicators to know if you’re happy or sad
Modern elevators have made “skyscrapers” possible—buildings with so many floors that reaching them only by stairway access would be a ridiculous and exhausting proposition. And so stairways have become hidden in blandly utilitarian “fire exit” stairwells. Even buildings now designed with no more than two or three floors save space with elevators rather than having a central stairway. And so one of the glories of our most beautiful architecture is rapidly disappearing, being preserved only in private mansion residences. It is a pity.
There is something magical in a stairway—this structure endlessly “in motion,
