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...

RockstarVanity has started a donation pool!
70 / 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.

We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.

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, four goldfish, a family of aquatic snails 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.

brennenxr interviewed me for projecteducate's latest Community Week. Find out more about me than you'll ever realistically need to know at the link below...
If you invite one of my photographs to a group based on the size of the model's breasts, I'm going to decline that invite. Cause it's creepy. And weird.
Join photohunt on Saturday 23rd January for their latest chat event. Take photos, have fun, win stuff!
