I recently compiled a number of interesting Tutorials and thought I'd share.
It isn't specifically relevant to Pinup & Glam and many of the skills will apply to all Photography but I do adore making Community Resources!

I'm still alive...

Remember kids... You can still buy the official 'neolestat' mug!

The Neolestat Mug by neolestat

I'm not looking to benefit financially here so you have the choice of hitting the 'buy this print' button or going to PoetryOD mugs for charity page and buying it in aid of cancer research. All I want from you is for you to raise a toast for me, using this mug, regardless of who you bought it from.

Art Trade – Kind of!

You may or may not have noticed while you browse my gallery that quite a few of my pics are available as prints. Getting to the point; originally, I wanted to see if I could make a little moolah out of dA but it seems that for most of us it sure don't work that way. Yeah, ok, I sell a few prints here and there but far too few to rave about or to make any difference to my finances. A year or so back I even changed my payment type to deviant dollars rather than go through the hassle of cashing cheques. It pays my way on dA and lets me help out here and there by slipping the odd Subscription to people or groups I care about.

If you've read the above you know I'm moving house, my walls will be bare and so I came up with a happy little plan:

I want you to buy my art. I urge you to buy my art so that in return I can buy the art of others here and thus keep the artistic community economy on dA thriving. Think of it as a moving-in gift with benefits. You guys buy my work, I get deviant dollars for it that I spend on artists within our community and thereby decorate my walls. Who knows, it might even be you I buy art from so think of it as a trade if you will. Sure it's a gamble, I might not buy your work but I do promise that I won't be turning those dollars into cash and you'll get some rather natty photography by me for your own walls. It's a win-win situation.

Modelling 101 – Release Forms:…
Model Safety News Article:…

If you are a photographer or a model these are relevant to YOU. I would like to think as many people have seen these as possible. Please go to the news article if you haven't already and add them to your page as a news fave using the heart icon below my avatar, top left of the page.

It will take less than a minute of your time to fave these yet could save models and togs a whole bunch of heartache and help weed out the sharks from the ethical. What's to lose? I am only helping to promote safe, best practise photography to all.

Banned by dA, Be Warned!

If you want to see the Wakamezake shots dA banned they are now on my website in their own gallery: Wakamezake
If you want to see the Pinky pic dA removed for TOS violations look at image #7: Pinkys

Monitor Calibration Tool

The grey bar above is for monitor calibration of brightness and contrast. If set right you should see a slight shade difference between every letter A-Z… If you can't. try and adjust so you can, you'll be amazed at the difference it makes to the work on dA<p>
