I've shared this nifty little trick before - a home made tripod. It sounds impossible, but actually it's really practical and much easier than lugging the real thing around with you if it's not needed! Check out this articlefor more information on how to create it!

Home Made Reflector
Reflectors can be pretty expensive from time to time. I've been lucky to pick up a couple cheaply on Ebay and they serve the purpose but if you really want to save, then why not try making your own? This article shows you how with just three materials and the video below also provides further guidance - check it out
Celebrating Diversity #27The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to post an article with deviations outside of my area of expertise here on deviantART. Therefore I decided to browse away from Photography, and venture into areas that I know little about!
I strongly encourage you to step out of your zone of comfort and take the time to discover or re-discover other types of art. The world is full of wonder and beauty, we just need to take the time and open our minds to see even more of it - embrace the diversity of it!
hello again !Haven't done a journal for some time mainly due to commitments to work and training taking most of my time. my life is moving into a new faze as the saying goes ! I went to Pula, Croatia in august of this year for a holiday with my beautiful girlfriend Vikki and we took our 4 children with us, her boys AJ and Chris and my son and daughter, Taran and Erin. It was a great holiday the best I've ever had to be honest and the best thing about it was I took a engagement ring with me and caught Vikki completely of guard and ask her to marry me, so now we are getting married
I have landed probably the best job in the world ! I start teaching photography for an activity holiday company, here in the UK next year The company is called HF Holidays, check them out http://www.hfholidays.co.uk/ I was given 4 holidays of various lengths, I had to plan what I'm teaching as there will be different levels of students and themes to each holiday, where we will go and
5 Fundamental Skills (by Bobby Myers)5 Fundamental Skills Every Artist Should Master
(by Bobby Myers)
As an artist, your job is to immerse your viewers into a world that you have built and guide them safely through it. Artists have much in common with storytellers. Storytellers have several tricks that they use to keep their readers coming back for more. Like storytellers, artists can use similar tricks to help them produce more compelling artwork. In this article, we will explain 5 fundamental skills that every artist should master. Let's take a look!
The most important aspect of art to me personally is the composition. It sets the stage for everything else. This is your way to guide and lead the viewer to make them feel as if they are actually in your picture. If this part of the process is not created and controlled properly, everything else can and probably will fal
The Panic Room (A Supernatural One-Shot)“Dean…? Dean?”
The name felt like lead on Sam’s tongue, so thick and heavy that he wasn’t sure if the syllable had actually made it past his lips.
The only reason he was aware of something cutting into his neck was the trail of red that was marking a small pathway against the stark fabric of his shirt. The dark suit and tie that usually accompanied the white-collared look were missing, but he couldn’t remember why.
His brother’s name seemed to drop soundlessly into the dark space before him. Everything felt heavy. Dull. Maybe he was dreaming.
But dreams shouldn’t smell of dust and abandonment. They shouldn’t be framed by cobwebs and wallpaper so aged that their floral design has faded into funeral bouquets. They shouldn’t have flickering candlelight and robed figures looking down on you.
No, dreams shouldn’t be like that.
But Winchesters don’t have dreams. They have nightmares. Sam smile
