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.

PHOTOGRAPHER | WRITER | DA COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER

Queer, winter baby, eclectic witch. Head full of storms. A large coffee please.

I've been on dA since 2005 and a Senior Member since 2007. I'm currently a Community Volunteer looking after General Photography (send me Daily Deviation suggestions!) 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!

My username, and the name I worked and did all my online photography stuff under, was (until late 2016) RockstarVanity. So if you see that name on watermarks, in photo descriptions or elsewhere on my profile, that's why.

My blog, photography and creative writing can be found at TanyaSimoneSimpson.com and I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Ello

I'm also on Snapchat, in case you're interested in the minutiae of my existence. My username there is tanyassimpson.

Introducing...EyeOfTheKat

Tue Mar 28, 2017, 1:00 AM
Introducing... is a series at CRPhotography that highlights the work of photographers who are new to DeviantArt.


This week we're getting to know EyeOfTheKat


:iconeyeofthekat:


Fallen Angel (updated) by EyeOfTheKat


How long have you been taking photographs for?
I joinded dA in April 2016 and started with photography just a bare four weeks earlier in the first week of March 2016. So you can basically follow my whole progress as a photographer right from the beginning here on dA. I even have one picture from the very first week still in my gallery.

A Million Stars by EyeOfTheKat


What's your favourite thing to photograph and why?
I love all and everything about nature to photograph! Mostly I have a tendency to shoot naturescapes of all sorts and close-up/macro. Nature just amazes me and brings every time I go out some new feeling of awe for me. And that is what I am trying to capture in my pictures, to bring this feeling of awe about natures beauty to you through my art.

As I am still a bloody beginner (a year is nothing in my eyes) I also experiment a lot with all different kinds of photography. But nature is what I will always come back to. I am not very good at creating pictures yet (like in conceptual photography) but I think I have an eye to see the incredible little moments that are around me. And piece by piece I think I am getting better at catching them on camera as well.

Touch by EyeOfTheKat


If you could photograph anything or anyone in the world, what or who would it be and why?
That is a tough question. Actually I do not know. I have a lot of goals where I want to travel in the future and what I would love to see with my own eyes, but there is not the "one" special place or thing. For me it is all about the perfect moment, when everything is just "right". A stunning landscape, a dramatic sky and incredible light. I think for me it is mainly always about the light. Without the right lighting even the most amazing places can not give you this feeling I am always looking for.

The Feast by EyeOfTheKat


What do you love most about DA?
I came to dA because a lot of my friends are artists in some way and they have been on dA for many years. So as I started with photography I remembered that they told me this is a great community and that is why I decided to join as well.

And I was not disappointed - the community here is just amazing. I met so many wonderful people in my short time here. Everybody is so nice and tries to help you to grow with your art. I think that is something you can not find anywhere else.

Deception by EyeOfTheKat


What's your favourite photo you've taken so far and why?
This picture shows a very special moment in time for me. And it is also very beautiful and of a good technical quality. It is taken in the National Park Wadden Sea at the North Sea, Germany. I was going through a very dark and painful time then. My boyfriend and I spent a few days there on a short holiday. The weather was mostly crappy (which is expected there so I should not complain), lots of rain and clouded skies. One late afternoon we decided to drive out to the outskirts of the Wadden Sea to have a small walk at the end of the day - even when the weather was quite bad as we started.

It was ebb, so the water was a few kilometers away from us. We walked a bit on the edge and then a few hundred meters out into the Wadden Sea. It was still raining, changing from only a few drops to a constant light rain back and forth all the time. Mostly I kept my camera in my backpack as I was afraid to damage it as it is not weather resistant.

And then suddenly it happend. The clouds broke up and there was these incredible light all around us, illuminating the clouds and the puddles of water on the ground, making these stunning patterns and reflections. I think I lost myself in this moment for a time as this sight just filled my heart with joy and happiness. And my painful times where forgotten for this moment out there. And I kept a bit of this feeling always with me since then.

Luckily I was also able to capture a bit of this incredible moment on camera as well. Maybe you can get a bit of this feeling as well from it.

Where there is Beauty there is Hope by EyeOfTheKat

Today is full of happy. My fucked up piece of flash fiction, To Mother’s Farm, has been published in Twisted Sister Lit Mag as part of their International Women’s Day issue. I was properly terrified about submitting my work to places but when I ran into an online magazine that’s all about “feminist and queer positive dark fiction” I had to go for it.
Guess what? It's contest time at CRPhotography! Yaaaaay! OK, I'm a bit excited about this cause our contests took a break for a month but now they're back and this month's is all about people and portraits, which is my favourite gallery. GO SHOOT SOMEONE. With your camera.

Want to join the awesome admin team at CRPhotography? Find out how in this journal...
Everyone who's posting about "OMG Wix are going to give our art away and the world will explode", please engage your brains and make an effort to inform yourself, or at least use common sense, rather than spreading misinformation. It's worth remembering that the people who stand to make a lot of money from the continued success of the site are not going to do something so ridiculously stupid that it would result in almost the entire userbase removing their work immediately and therefore massively devaluing the property they have just spent $36M on. So chill, alright?

- - - - -

There's been some confusion around wording used in TechCrunch's reporting of the DeviantArt and Wix story.

Their article includes: "...Wix will open up DeviantArt’s repository of art and creative community to the Wix platform, giving Wix’s users access to that work to use in their own site building."

Please know that the DeviantArt Submission Policy, Terms of Service and Copyright Policy all remain the same.  Deviants continue to own their own works. In the future, there's a possibility Wix might provide opportunities for you to license your work -- only if you want to -- to more people around the world.  And, there will be opportunities for Wix users to join DeviantArt and make the community stronger.
