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 Hunger Games: An Accidental Statement of Protest?
Catching fire by Kris-Kamikakushi
In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.

The Empire Bargains by dvsdesigner
Who’s the most important person now in the Star Wars franchise? JJ Abrams? Think again!
It begins in mere weeks from now: The countdown to the first of the next Star Wars sequels, Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, the first of a new trilogy for a new generation. The first 1 minute trailer, a mostly wordless montage of series’ heroes, will debut attached to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 or on Disney-owned ABC Television. American culture stirs in its sleep.

Collection: Hammer Time!
There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique
Collection: The Leonids
The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati

Someday by alicexz
Foreword by techgnotic
Elisa (aka spotted) steps out from behind the scenes as one of our intrepid Today Page senior editors to contribute her appreciation of “The Little Mermaid.” We hope it will be the first of many contributions to come, another hidden talent having been revealed by this longtime DeviantArt special projects manager.
It was 25 years ago that a redheaded mermaid made a splash in theaters ushering in a new era for the identity of the Disney princess.
