Un-recognized Photography
It seems that out of everyone on DeviantArt, and all the works submitted, some of us photographers just cant get the recognition we would like, and that allot deserve. Photography is a true art form at the very base level, it starts with an idea, moved to a camera, and allot of times, into photoshop for touch-up. Allot of photographers have what is called an "eye", this being the artistic side of photography. In a shot of a city side, any average joe would call it just a fire hidrent, but Mr. eye over there knows just the angle and lighting to capture a new way of seeing things, and this is why Photography is so beautiful.
The problem that faces photographers however, is getting there artwork noticed. Allot of us post our works, and hope that someone will find it and really say "wow". The sad part is that a large majority of photographers on DA, get very little to no recognition. This of course isnt just photographers, but will stick to them at the moment.

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 21, 2011, 12:00 AM
Been a while...

I now work in theater as a scenic designer, prop maker and charge artist. Sometimes I am a stage manager as well.

Gave up my graphic design business and fired my clients!! It was kind of freeing :)

Below are some of my latest things. I feel pretty happy with the results!

Visit Photohunt at chat.deviantart.com/chat/Photo…. You should play, it is total fun and pushes your creativity to another level.

My latest work...




The set of TRYING in Coronado, CA


Another scenic of KILLER JOE! Such a bloody show...
