Some street shots from NYC using my lovely Zorki 3.
Weather was mostly terrible but it was a nice trip. I brought 4 cameras with me (idiot) and ended up shooting mostly with my phone! Nevertheless I managed to snap a few with this vintage russian rangefinder.
I woke up thinking about circles. It may have been the outline of the white sun shining through the bedroom curtains this morning, or the circular lip of my porcelain coffee cup. The fact is I've been going round in circles all morning.
I have a fascination with alternative uses for printed text and the handwritten word, this led me to experiment with cutting circles out of book text. After all I want my art to be well read. Do you know how hard it is to cut out perfect circles at 7 a.m. after only one cup of coffee? Really hard!
The story is about a merchant who wrongly picks a rose for his daughter Lily from the garden of a lion. The lion is really an enchanted prince who becomes a lion in the day and turns back into a prince in the evening. The merchant has to agree to give his daughter to the lion. So Lily goes off to meet the lion but finds him in the form of a prince. Lily and the prince marry, but the prince ends up turning into a dove and flying around the world for 7 years, until becoming a lion again. In his lion form he then begins to fight a dragon, who is really an enchanted princess, and whilst all this is going on poor Lily is looking for her lost prince.
Hello Steeminans. I promised you a new story for the next painting that was part of the art exhibition in Denmark, 2012.
This particular one is actually unfinished, I simply couldn't continue on it, don't really know why. The element in the middle was so nicely painted and there were so many details to take care of already (face, hair etc.), that when I got to the background, all I could do was a simple warm
light, a candlelight.
Oil painting. Size: 60x40 cm
My mom had a middle sized wooden statue in her bedroom, so when I was at her place for a visit, I immediately got inspired from it. Was very much into the obscure style at that time, and that statue seemed perfect as a subject. I don't think she still has it today, but what matters is that I captured the moment.
A year or
Many thanks to all those who made their post, I really enjoyed watching all the videos. And from what the judge told me, she also loved it.
You have time until today at 23:59 GMT - 3 to participate in the challenge. Tomorrow will announce the winners chosen by @danilamarilu
This is a small package of animated Gifs of the Steemit Logo for to use in your post or to promote Steemit around. All this was thanks to a suggestion in a commentary that came from @samstonehill. Thanks mate! :)
They are simply gif of the animations in video of the Logo of Steemit that I published the other days for download. I will leave the links of the two post at the end in case you need them.
And without the sentence.
Mixed media: water-based paints, ink and collage on paper.
I have tried to comment and upvote everyone but there were lots. Feel free to leave a comment if I missed anyone. I hope those of you who did not get a mention will only feel more encouraged to compete in the next editions.
I imagined the feeling that hits you when you are poor and send like only 10$ to someone! It really nailed it!
Those of us who have had to work a full time job while launching a writing career know that it’s no easy task, for a variety of reasons. What people sometimes fail to realize is working a day job that has nothing to do with writing can also give you a huge advantage. Being in the workforce can teach you many valuable lessons that can be applied directly to your writing career.
Look at any successful writer’s career and all of them have effectively coined their, “brand.” This is consistency...your own unique voice or way of telling a story. Once developed it’s a golden thread that runs through all of your projects and will keep core readers who resonate with your style coming back for more. Working in your intended genre should feel natural and organic, like breathing. When you have identified your natural, “brand” this will be the key to attract
One day left for submission your interpretations!
THEME FOR ARTCHALLENGE #9 is a surreal drawing of an artist of great talent and an amazing person @paolobeneforti. Thank you very much, Paolo!
You can see more wonderful sketches at [Some sketches from a drawing afternoon (And Remember The Art-Trail Contest for Drawings!)](https://steemit.com/art/@paolobeneforti/some-sketches-from-a-drawing-afternoon-and-remember-the-art-trail-con
Dark clouds were rolling in as we made our way home this morning. Soon the downpour started, the potholes in the roads turned into small lakes and everything was drenched. Drainpipes were spitting out water on to the pavements as waterfalls cascaded off roof tiles.
If you are constantly looking for those abs, a strong torso, flat belly, Jonny-Bravo-biceps and ultimately great blood flow and circulation, you may have tried push-ups!

But if you have weak hands like me, then you might want to try my brand of push-ups! Let's go 50!
Basically, the 22nd century lurks in the corner, the white walkers are coming, so why go all out to stress in the gym, when i can exercise my brain, create some influence and employ bouncers who have truly come to love me, to do the lifting!
So join me, let's do 50 push-ups. When we are done, your biceps, abs, torso etc, will be every human's delight and will be hotcakes in anatomy-museums worldwide!
My approach to art is rather down to earth:
To be an artist, try to create beauty.
I discussed what that means in this context before, in a lengthy post.
This time I'd like to discuss a practical problem that surfaces when you try to make your work better and better.
Is it always possible to make a thing more beautiful? how much beauty can a single thing contain?
one of my older works - I made a lot of compositions that would look crowded to minimalists.
When you're working on something, you run into the question: how can I make this more beautiful?
This is an especially vexing problem with digital art, because it is so flexible. At any point, you can change anything. There's no limit to the number of versions you can have of the same work. It's very easy to get lost in the process - and stuck on the details. Sometimes it is paralyzing and frustrating.
Hola amigos de steemit, en esta ocasión voy hablarles un copo de mi carrera como instrumentista, la cual me ha dado mucha satisfacción y experiencias en el campo laboral dentro de la más importante industria de mi país Venezuela, como es la industria petrolera.
Desde muy temprana edad mi curiosidad por saber cómo funcionan las cosas, la tecnología y la informática, me llevo a interesarme por esta hermosa carrera, que está orientada fundamentalmente a la utilización de aparatos tecnológicos para controlar las variables dentro de un proceso industrial.
Instrumentación Industrial: Es una serie de ciencias que junto con el uso de tecnología instrumentista puede medir, controlar, o registrar las variables de un proceso, con el fin de hacer un registro y posterior evaluación, y así m
Cézanne (1839-1906) painted about 170 still lifes. They form a central part of his production and provide us with essential information. The still life arrangements aren't snap shot views of reality, but carefully arranged compositions. He builds his own well-organized reality where color and shape interact harmoniously. Unlike the historical still-life tradition, he never tried to reveal the physicality or sensual aura of the objects. Instead, they became subordinated the color and shape experiments.
Oil on canvas, 59.5 x 72.5 cm (~151 x 184 in)
National Museum of Art, Oslo
Cézanne's special way of managing the perspective is always easiest to observe in his still lifes. In this composition, as so often, he works with geometric shapes: the table surface is depicted as a brown rectangle, roughly parallel to the image plane. Against this, the spherical fruits, the round plate and the jug where the front is perceived vertica
ghostingis an unwelcome artifact, but you can use slower shutter speeds creatively too.
This technique takes practice and experimentation but it's worth the effort. It's great for adding excitement to party photos, or drama and movement to posed studio shots. Here are some examples of shots where I purposefully
dragged the shutter.
Tips for shutter drag:
Now that you’ve completed lesson one, we will move on to lesson two.
I know what you are thinking “how is toast any different than the eggo waffle, they are the same”, WRONG!!!!!
Bread isn’t frozen and isn’t nearly as thick and dense as a waffle meaning there is a lot less room for error.
You will really begin to get a feel for your panini press with the bread and this is the biggest step in becoming a panini master.
Again, I want you to start with just one slice of bread.
Don’t get cute and throw two pieces of bread on because you think you have
