JDS-photo's Profile Picture
Josh S.
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United Kingdom
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! :)
I shall be updating this journal entry on a regular basis (i.e. when needed), and therefore, you may receive numerous notifications about this entry on a regular basis if something new has come up in the entry (I apologise in advance if it seems like I'm spamming your inbox. I don't mean to...)

Personal updates

So my laptop has finally returned! YAYYY! I'll be working within the next week on editing and uploading as much work to 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 :giggle:), 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 :giggle:. 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... :giggle:), 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!
