Featured Artist No. 1
=winged-lotus is a true master of cross hatch shading with ink. Don't expect a lot of colour in her gallery but rather let yourself be sucked in by the amazing amount of details in her works and the effort and emotion every single one of them shines with.
It always baffles me how someone so talented only has so few watchers. If anyone deserves a whole lot more of them it's most definitely her.
Featured Artist No.2
Incredibly wonderful soft shading and a unique character style combined with lovely colour choices are what caught my eye about =MaddalinaMocanu's works. Her deviations don't only show an advanced level of skill but also all emanate a beautiful magical aura.

Up and Coming IIThere is an abundance of talent here on deviantART, and I love browsing our fashion photography galleries for emerging artists, at the forefront of the next wave of new talent.
There are always people who catch my eye, and I collect their names and keep an eye on them, because watching people make the most of their talent and fulfill their potential is a wonderful experience. I'm going to share some of the fresh talent I'm currently admiring and amazed by, so that when they're out shooting big campaigns and stories across the world, we can say I told you they were special!"
So have a look at these wonderful artists, this feature is the first in the series, check out the previous one here.
Gareth is part of a fresh wave of talent hailing from Wales but working a lot in London. Unafraid to experiment with colour, Gareth's conceptual-meets-fashion photography really makes an impact on the viewer. Back To The Stre
There's something new in town...For a long while now, I've been itching to create a group that encompasses the whole of the People & Portraits Photography Gallery. After chatting it through with ^3wyl today, we decided to launch one - and so ~PeopleAndPortraits was born! It's for every single sub-gallery of People and Portraits Photography. Every single one. You'll find a folder for every one of them and you'll find that you can submit not one but TWO works a week to each one. What else are we giving you...well...
The chance to show case your work by having it submitted to the group

There is also another solution, plz accounts
I have been asked what plz accounts are several times and to be honest, I can't really describe them.
But fortunately there is a Project Educate Article about that by `Krissi001!
This is not the main part of my article, so that is why I linked an article instead of writing a new one!

A photograph is memory in the raw. - Carrie Latet
I recently spent some time (okay maybe hours!) exploring a photographic exhibition on the Isle of Wight - England. I had known that the exhibition existed for some years, but had never really ventured over there. It was held in the home and studio of a celebrated Victorian Photography - Julia Margaret Cameron. However it did include a nice variety of works - photographs from Dorothy Bohm who put together the book A world observed and a collection of shots taken at the famed 1970s Isle of Wight Pop Festival. It included images of Jimi Hendrix who performed at the festival just three weeks before his death. The images collated and exhibited were fascinating. But what really struck me was how far we had come in terms of camera equipment.
This was donated to the Margaret Cameron Trust by Graham Ovenden and was subsequent

PE Note to Daily DeviationHello all,
In this section of Daily Deviations (DD) PE week I wanted to write about how your suggestions are processed and then turned into DDs, but with a bit more of a focus on the process of how we Community Volunteers (CVs) utilize the note system. I felt it was a place where some common problems arise which may not be talked about all too often resulting in confusion and frustration for both suggesters and CVs.
The Note System
I think many are aware of this but just for the sake of being clear, CVs use the same exact note system as every other user on the site. We do not have any special bells and whistles to organize our notes other than the same tools you all are also given. There is no special tool or program that sorts or does anything special with our DD suggestions for us, it is entirely up to us, how we choose to sort them in our note system.
Let's take a closer look at how the process works, shall we?
