Love in the Autumn forest. by OliviaMichalski

I really love the focus here, how the moss is sharp and the leaf itself fades into the background. The composition is great. It feels l...

I'm looking for abstract photography groups to join. Specifically abstract (or abstract and surreal) groups, not all-photography-but-we-also-accept-abstract. No interest in elitist attitudes or groups where you can only submit one photo a month. Gimme you

RockstarVanity has started a donation pool!
220 / 500

Points gathered here will go towards prizes and subs for groups I'm in, thanky donatey miscellaneous goodness and other lovely things for lovely people.

Donations are gratefully received and kindly appreciated but never expected. I tend to buy Points for giving rather than rely on others for them but your support means a lot to me and all the Points I gather here are given back to the dA community. Thank you!

The amount of 500 points is an arbitrary number pulled out of thin air/the ground/the back of my brain cause there was a box that asked for a number and I never say no to a box asking for something.

You must be logged in to donate.

I've been on dA since 2005 and a Senior Member since 2007. I'm currently a Community Volunteer looking after General Photography and I've CV'd twice before, looking after Photography > Horror & Macabre (November 2008 - June 2010) and Photography > Darkroom (June 2012 - May 2013).

I believe art is for everyone and should be all about exploration and experimentation. As a member of the Community Relations team, I'm on a mission to support and encourage you in your creative endeavours. I love getting to know awesome DA people, so feel free to say hello!

I'm a member of these DA groups.

As well as photography, I manage online communications for an art performance charity and am also studying for a BSc in Forensic Psychology. Hobbies include obsessing over entertainment media and literature of a dark nature, writing and playing with fire. I share my home with one large dude-human, two small cats, an albino axolotl with a double-barrel surname, and more computers than two people realistically need. My personal blog and creative writing website lives at if you want to dive down that particular rabbit hole.

Time to get your minimalism on and celebrate the beauty of curves with CRPhotography's 52 Week Challenge!
So moving has happened. Floors are in. Appliances are here. Furniture exists. I'm gradually getting back to almost normal levels of internet activity even though it feels like every waking moment is spent doing something else to the flat. I'm catching up on comments and stuff from the last few weeks so if you get a reply to something ancient, that's why :aww:
Moving house is still happening. I forgot how long this takes and how much work is could be! Decorating currently in progress, floors happen tomorrow, big things being delivered/transported over the weekend. Just wanted to let you all know I'm still alive and promise to get to all the notes and messages as soon as I can!
Hello friends :aww: I'm moving house at the moment and it's taking up pretty much every waking minute. Just wanted to let you know I won't be around here as much over the next couple of weeks and any messages and notes might be a while getting read or answered. I'll be back properly soon once we're living in the new place and have an internet connection!
Photographers! Do you love shooting conceptual photography? Or maybe you've never done it but want to give it a shot? You have 9 days to submit your conceptual photo (must in the Photography > Conceptual gallery, must be uploaded to DA in July 2016) to this month's CRPhotography contest!
