"Have no fear of perfection - You'll never reach it! "
Have you studied Photography? I'm intrigued to know whether or not a qualification in Photography has made you a better, or indeed a worse photographer. Or has there been no change? This week, The Photography Blog asks whether or not a Photography Degree is worth the paper it's written on. Graduation in any field these days doesn't mean that you'll immediately get a job in your desired area. Not these days. So is it worth embarking on study related to photography when in the end, you could get to the same place without the paper stating what you are capable of? Photography is one of a small number of job areas where what you've done speaks higher volumes than whether or not you're
Best of September 2013Here are some of the best pictures I found in September, 2013. They do not appear in my Square-features, that's why I do a monthly feature for all those great artists on deviantART who submitted no-square pictures.

All Snapped Up .11 ~ lieveheersbeestje~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography Community
Tell us a bit about yourself, lieveheersbeestje! How did you get into photography and why?
I'm a 22 year old girl from the Netherlands. Also an amateur photographer who started photography around 4, 5 years ago and it's still my biggest hobby. At first, I just bought a Canon Eos 500D KIT to take pictures of daily things of my life, like my family, my pet(s), things in my house/garden. I discovered that I liked this very much and I wanted to do more, so I started to photograph things outside, like nature, insects (macro) and bought objects for still life/food and drink.
Why are you on deviantART?
To share my pictures and resources with other artists and to get inspired by other artists. The creativity here is what I love to look at.
What type of photography do you most like to do and why?
PE: Stock, Resources and deviantART RelatedStock & Resources
I see Stock & Resources as a category of art on deviantART where the entire focus is on helping others and providing them with what they need. This helps artists of any medium! Photomanipulators for example rely heavily on the stock photos they find here. If you draw or paint, digitally or traditionally, many stock photos can be hugely helpful as reference, as can line art and textures. There's literature templates, fonts, fractal and vector resources, designs & patterns for artisans and crafters.. and then there's tutorials for any kind of art, and about deviantART itself.
So one great way to contribute something to the community and your fellow artists is to provide such resources!
We will not go into this in depth as it has its own Community Volunteers and Project Educate weeks that should help you get started!

The theme each month is dependent on the time! So, for October, the theme has to be in-keeping with something that happens during that month, or something that relates to that month. Halloween, Autumn, Fall - whatever 'happens' in that month and whatever
