|I am currently studying Business & Management at Aberystwyth University. I've been trying to develop my photography skills over the last couple of years, and I would love to be able to work more with photography, but I suppose I'll have to wait and see how well I progress and learn before I go making any big decisions. Please feel free to take a look at my gallery and leave feedback on my photography, all feedback is appreciated!|
So my laptop has finally returned! YAYYY! I'll be working within the next week on editing and uploading as much work to Sta.sh as I can, ready to submit to deviantART.
I've decided to start selling prints on dA of a few select photos, mainly photos that have recieved some positive feedback (i.e. favourites, comments, critiques etc.)
To be completely honest, I doubt that there'll be many people on deviantART who'll look at purchasing prints (let alone mine ), but any support through purchasing, or even just commenting and critiquing as always is really appreciated
So it's deviantART's 14th Birthday! To celebrate, I took part in the "My deviantART Story" activity that they are currently doing, and while it is a lot longer than they wanted, it seemed right, especially since I joined dA 4 years today xD
I hope you like it
My deviantART StoryIt‘s been exactly 4 years since I joined deviantART. How time flies...
Over the past 4 years, deviantART has helped me in so many ways, and yet I didn't exactly want to sign up at the time . My "works" show just how much I've changed in the past 4 years. I'm going to go a bit over the top compared to some "features" simply because I don't think pictures are enough to tell this story, so...
This is my story.
On the 8th August 2010, I was "forced" into creating a deviantART account by a friend of mine (who no longer has an account with dA). To be honest, I didn't even know what deviantART was at the time.
But I figured 'why not?'. I was never the social type (even now), but I figured maybe it may help take me out of my comfort zone, and actually try to talk to people.
When I first signed up (under the name "joshere". Yeah, that wasn't a good choice, was it... ), I initially thought "Let's upload my GCSE work, see what people thin
I now have a tumblr and a twitter account! Just like with dA, I'm going to be using these accounts to post up some photography and art, as well as to be social! So if you have a tumblr or twitter account, please feel free to check it out and chat to me! It would be great to talk to some other deviants!
