Cats for Cats' Sake
The cat is, perhaps, one of the most photogenic creatures in existence.  They have a natural grace and beauty which attracts a camera and a feline attitude which lends additional interest to their portraits.  This very attitude, however, is one thing that can make cats so difficult to photograph.  They simply won't sit when you tell them to and they definitely won't stay!
With this in mind, here are some of DA's finest finest feline photographs:

ABC Photography Feature: Round #1
:bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink::bulletpink:[Bullet; Pink][Bullet; Pink]
So I've decided to do an ABC feature each month. How this works is I post up a forum and have people post their photos on it and at then end of each month I will choose one person from each letter of the Alphabet and feature them in a News article and in my journal. A new forum will be posted at the beginning of each month! Hope you all join in on round #2!

Scenics

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...
