16. FeatureHey all,I apologize for being waaaay too inactive here...I finally got my flat internet at my home. So that means I can browse on dA at least.. which is good. But university is still keeping me busy, unfortunately... all those late afterschool tutorials and labs are making me come home pretty late. I actually have another test to write next week. Therefore, I haven't been able to take any pictures, upload them OR do any features lately. I'm still trying to manage my time. Hopefully I'll be able to find a free time to pick up my dear abandoned friend again and finally take pictures with it again.To do this I'd have to search for the motivation and the inspiration that've gone lost long ago... So it'll be a real challenge for me I think.Well, here's the latest feature, it's slightly shorter than my usual ones, but nevertheless hope you like it! There are just too many beautiful pictures I want to feature and boy this involves such hard decisions. I always ha

Out of Work"I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of "work" because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don't always want to do. Being born is like being kidnapped. And then sold into slavery. People are working every minute. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep."(Andy Warhol, out of work since February 22, 1987)

Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing AutumnFor many Photographers, Autumn is now officially here and is one of the most exciting seasons to capture in terms of colour, change and vistas. Early morning mist, late afternoon sun, orange, red and golden hues - Autumn has a lot to offer in many countries. If you're like me, Autumn often arrives all at once and it can be tricky to know how to make the best of the season before it's over. A couple of days of high winds and rain can ruin the best Autumnal captures by ripping the leaves down before you've even got the chance to snap - so it's great to be prepared for the season.Leading lines are particularly useful. Yet so many people quote ' Look for leading lines...' or 'You've captured the leading lines here perfectly' and really do we even know properly what they are? The purpose of a leading line is to draw a viewers eye into the photograph and then on a journey - through it. Think of it as a visual narrative. They can be intentional and ind
