Hello there, world! Look who's got a subbie!
gave it to me! So I'm going to take this chance to write a new journal entry, haven't done it in ages!
No, I'm not dead. I've been around here recently, wanted to come back and catch up with everything new. At first I was like "OMG, dafuq is dis??".
But I got used. I've checked my deviations, uploaded some new, cleaned up my gallery a bit and my page, got through all my messages.
I am going to do a journal feature every week for 4 weeks, as long as my premium subbie lasts. So if you want to see your photo here, leave a comment bellow with the link and I might feature it!
Also, on my page, down right, I am going to choose and post a photo that will be displayed there for 2 days.
I have enabled critique on some of my latest deviations. I'm open and await constructive criticism! It doesn't have to be a critique, you can also write me comments! I love comments! Please tell me how you feel about my photos!If you like what I do, check out my facebook page here and my blog.
Dear watchers, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
I had one, everything was very good, except for the weather: no snow!
I haven't seen a Christmas without snow before, so this was a bit sad... But the presents and the atmosphere were great!
I'm still hoping we'll have some snow in january-february. How was your Christmas?
Because it is almost the end of another year, I like thinking back to see what I have accomplished this year. 2011 was a great year for me, I think I have improved my photography and mostly my editing skill! I had my first real commisioned shoot for the 8th graders' party, I've done well in school, had a fun summer vacation. Now I'm in the 11th grade, which means that I only have one (except this) highschool year left! It's a bit scary when you think about it, especially when I haven't decided what I'm going to study afterwards!!! So school went great until now... I also am the designer of our school's magazine and I'm more and more into web design... I've designed this site
for our school's magazine, 'cause I wanted to practice. My relationship is also working very good, I have now been together with my boyfriend for over 3 years...
And I am looking forward to the new year!
I'm starting to write down my resolution's list for 2012.
Do you have one of these? What are your New Year's resolutions? I've got a lot of plans for next year... there are many stuff I want to study harder, not for school but for me, like web design and, of course, photography and I want to take the Cambridge exam for advanced English.
I also wish to start doing accesories out of polymer clay.
One of the things I want to do in 2012 in january is buy a new lens!
I need your help here, fellow deviants. Can you please suggest something to me? I need a lens good for macro and also portraiture, that gives a nice blurry background and sharp details and not very expensive. I've got about 700$ available to spend on this, or 550 EUros. Can you recommend me something? Note that in Romania these are a bit more expensive than in the US. What I want to use it for is: portraiture, plants and insects, object close-ups and stuff like that. I'm thinking about a Sigma 105mm or a Canon 60mm? I'm using a Canon EOS 500D.
Until next week I hope you all have a great New Year's party! Happy new year everyone!
Now, let the awesomeness begin!
Pleaseeeee, please please please give me advice regarding the macro lens!
