I have to confess, I did give up on dA a while ago, because of the lack of support and critique on my photography. It was also a stage in my life that I did not know what I exactly wanted to do.. do you feel that sometimes?
I've been studying photography for many years and most of it was nicely kept on my flickr account, because I didn't feel the need to post it here.. no matter how dramatic it was, I felt like this place was just a nicely wrapped box to store my stuff, not a community.
It's probably my fault, I tried to work harder and keep my page alive and interesting, but most of the time I did not have the actual time to dedicate for it, invest in it and so on. But I kept searching for inspiration every day on this site, and every day I encounter so many talented artists, so many creative vibes, that I couldn't stay away for too long..
This time is different, I'm trying my hand at designing, photoshop (which I have tested for like.. 4 years now on and off), and I plan on studying Interaction Design and Visual Design as courses in the near future.
Lately I'm obsessed with fantasy/macabre photo manipulations, I admit to all the artists out there, this is amazing! Seeing your work turn out the way you imagined it, it's something truly great.
So, if you would like, I would greatly appreciate, leave a comment/critique/smiley face/whatever you want!
I would like to interact with you guys, as much as possible, and feel the artsy vibe of this community!!
