Saturday Spotlight: Volume 033An Interview with-scheinbar:iconscheinbar:scheinbar's Gallery> Please introduce yourself, in your own words. What are your interests?I started with painting and drawing quite early in life; I always had a pencil or brush in my hands. Later on, I began to work with photography and although I had a huge SLR I didn't have enough time to use it because of family and work commitments and so on. This delayed my progress into photography for about a decade. With the advent of digital cameras, taking pictures has become far easier for me. So, recently, with more time and easier-to-use technology I started again with photography, and this time succeeded. I also spend my ti

My name is Ralf, I'm 45 years old, and I'm from Bremen in Germany. My interests are primarily music and photography, along with movies and painting.> Where did you begin with artistic endeavours? How did you come across Abstraction or Surrealism?At first I started with abstract traditional painting as a means to express myself. As I reached my limits in that medium I experimented more and more with abstract and surreal photography, but now it's more the post-poressing of those images towards digital painting that f
A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.The "This is crap!" ArgumentAs an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their

What are your interests?My name is Joel, and I'm currently a student in Baltimore, Maryland - a decrepit city in a historic state located on the east coast of the United States. I lived in South Africa for most of my childhood before moving to the USA. Other than photography, I'm particularly interested in the subjects of psychology, and history. I enjoy philosophy, although I try to only ever philosophise by accident. Music is another area of great preoccupation, in particular ambient music, or anything that creates a pleasing atmosphere or mood.> W

What are your interests?Hi, my name’s Matthew Davidson - I go by the moniker Megalithicmatt because I like visiting ancient sites such as stone circles and standing stones. I’m a geochemist, not an artist or designer by trade, so my photographs are taken purely as a hobby, though I have considered becoming a working photographer in the past. Aside from history and archaeology, I enjoy hiking, rock climbing and anything that gets me out into the countryside.> Where did you begin with artis

Why you feature stolen work?!?!Lately there seem to have been a few myths flying around in particular with regards to how we as Community Volunteers, give Daily Deviations. Many people seem to think that we sit at our desks in dark little rooms and let out evil laughter whilst we purposefully feature stolen work. The dark rooms and laughter - well I can't say yes or no on that one! But I can promise you it's not our intent to give exposure to people who have stolen work. I recently featured a piece of work that turned out to be stolen. However I went into extensive conversations with the artist before I featured it, and with added metadata and dates, it's difficult to know where to draw the line. I've given people the benefit of the doubt before - and it's worked out nicely as their work has been legitimate. Below are some comments I have seen being thrown around the past few days - and hopefully an attempt to bust the myth."I thought at least that you people would check to make sure the work was the
Urbex #2Urban Exploration is the exploration of man-made structures. Usually these are abandoned ruins, or components that used to be part of everyday life but are no longer seen on a regular basis by the human eye. This series of articles aims to highlight exactly what Urban Exploration is, how it's achieved and the some of the best Urbex Photographers here on deviantART.The internet has provided Urban explorers with many opportunities to garner news of new locations, the best places to go to 'urban explore' and what to avoid. Additionally social media means that we can share places that others will never see, and never hoped to see until the introduction of the internet and the ease with which we can communicate. So as this series goes on, we're going to look at some of the top Urban Exploration websites, at the current time, online. Contamination Zone is dedicated to Photographing Urban Decay across the United Kingdom. As far as urbex sites go, i
