The BreezeI shall let the pictures speak for themselves.
It's alright to break a few rules every once in a while.
Hope you're all doing well!
Last journal of the yearHey everyone, how are you all doing?
it's been awhile since I've written a journal here. I haven't been here often either, I honestly don't know what's going on and I probably need some catching up to do.
I've decided that it's time to pick up my camera and do photography again. (It's about time ) I've been considering about doing another 365-project or maybe the less stressful 52-weeks-project... I really hope that I'll stay motivated and on track, considering that med school keeps on getting busier, especially because of all the seminars, presentations and the preparation for the coming up state examination.
Anyways, I've gathered some new pictures that I've been meaning to post.
Woke up early to study and managed to see this gorgeous sunrise from my balcony. Sadly, the angle's somewhat awkward, but oh well, better than nothing.
A valuable experienceIt's kind of the heat of the moment and I feel like sharing a piece of my thoughts by writing this blog entry. I had a lot in my mind, yet I never bothered to write anything here. I haven't been here for a while. I mean, really, a while. I've been so busy with so many things and I know I've neglected everything that has to do with deviantArt or photography.
If you've gotten this far and still reading my entry, good for you
I mean, I'm just writing what's on my mind right now, cause I wanna be able to look back later at what I'm writing right now.
As of today, I finally finished the last chunk of the "3-month-internship" that's part of my pre-medical program. The staff is incredibly nice, a month went by so quickly and I actually quite enjoyed it. Compared to the first two chunks, this time really made me realize that I do want to be a doctor and this is something I want to pursue. It's not because of the social st
Back + 23. FeatureDear friends,
I'm sorry I haven't been active on dA for a while and kinda neglected my groups here. I know I've probably lost some watchers, but I still wanna thank you for those who've stayed all these times and been supporting me.
University has kept me away from photography and to be honest, I lost my inspiration to take photos. It's horrible. I feel like something's changed and I don't like where this is going. I hope to pick up photography again now that I have the semester break. For now I'll be uploading old photos.
Here's a small feature

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

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

Avoid That dAramaAnyone who has been an internet user for a period of time should know that drama is one of the hallmarks of the absolutely wonderful technology that allows us to be connected 24/7. It's like glitter, one moment all you see is just a fleck of it then suddenly, it's everywhere. DeviantArt is chock full of massive amounts of it (drama, not glitter!) at any given time, so let's talk about what you need to know to avoid it (aaaand what to do if you find yourself in it)!
I just caused the argument because... I wanted to get more pageviews, I wanted to be popular, for the lulz, I was bored

Thank you for sharing these beautiful pieces.
Teenage TaoismGiving birth is the closest I’d ever felt to dying.
Before that, my near death experiences had consisted only of my silent announcement of pregnancy—silent, being that my social media accounts were all deleted almost simultaneously and I never returned to school in the fall, saying without really saying that I had caught the malicious disease of “teenage pregnancy”. I’m sure the whisper spread in the hallways like the Bubonic Plague. That September, sitting at home on what would have been the first day of my senior year, I imagined friends I’d never talk to again saying “she was only seventeen, and so full of life!” at my absence in the cafeteria tables, as if they were attending my funeral instead of talking about me behind my back.
"Full of life," I had snorted then, folding a never ending stream of what had once been my own baby clothes. "Literally."
I walked around like a zombie for the months of my pregnancy, deciding t
