FUN FACTS You used to explain how you achieved each photo in the Artist's Comments but now you've stopped. Why?
I think it's important to promote free knowledge and the sharing of information so that we may all learn and help one another grow intellectually. So I try to lead by example by writing out the methods and protocols for how I achieved each photo in the Artist's Comments so others could learn and achieve the same kind of photos themselves. However, primarily due to lack of time, I can no longer keep up writing out methods, linking to relevant tutorials and resources, and providing detailed explanations. Camera Data can still be found on the sides of each deviation. Tutorials are still available on my website
. I guess those who are interested in learning how I achieved each photo will just have to meet me half way. You used to reply to all your comments but now you've stopped. Why?
I used to reply to every single comment because I believed that adequate communication is necessary to foster a sense of community and provide an environment for discussion and learning. I still believe this but now that I'm attending university and working, replying to every comment and thanking everyone individually is simply unrealistic. It took a lot of thought and a lot of input from the deviantArt community
before I decided to stop replying to comments. I am still very grateful for everyone's support and will try to stay active on deviantArt. What university are you attending? Are you majoring in photography?
I'm attending Johns Hopkins University
, majoring in biomedical engineering and applied mathematics. I do not plan on majoring or minoring in photography. What does your username mean? Is it inspired by Seal's song Kiss From A Rose?
My username was coined by a middle school friend who liked the song.Where do you get your inspiration?
Most of my concepts are inspired by literature, music, maybe even television. I will generally provide the quote, lyrics, or train of thought that inspired the piece in the Artist's Comments of each deviation. My concept lists are frequently made public so feel free to access them here: [link]
