DD Suggestion Drive
I know many of you have already sent me tons of cool DD suggestions. DDSuggestionDrive is a group encouraging deviants to write more DD suggestions. They currently have a contest running from 1st to 29th of February, during which your task is to write as many DD suggestions as possible. The more, the higher your chance of winning! They are giving away tons of prizes, so it's worth it!
Find more info on how it works here:
To get an idea what could be great DD material, you can check the Photomanip DDs of January and my DD suggestion guidelines. I updated my guidelines to make suggesting easier for you.

What is it?
"Photographs where the photographer is also the model"
You may already be a winner.Often I see a great image on dA that misses the mark, barely, because the great image is hidden in the clutter.You may already be a winner. by harrietsfriend
I view those, that choose to watch me, and visit their galleries often finding super images with only a handful of favs given to them. How could that be possible I ask myself and if I can, I offer to finish the image, as I would have done for myself. Slight changes in contrast, saturation, color balance, highlights, shadows, and cropping can and do wonders making what was always there come to light.
With this in mind, I recently viewed images taken in Key West by a friend. Actually he captured me and made me go through the vacation snapshots, but along the way, I discovered some fascinating photos he didn't even know where there. I sent them to me and did what experience had taught me, then sent them back. These were simple iPhone photos, not even taken with a real camera, but still great within the total image.
If ever I offer to do this for you

Why did you join DeviantArt and what made you continue staying on DA?
:iconbrennenxr: This is going to be embarrassing to admit, but I joined back in 2005 because some of my friends on Neopets were joining and I wanted to see their awesome Neopets related artwork. I was 13, don't judge pls.
Where did your exposure to art originate?

Personally, I'm a modest but passionate photographer, on an eternal learning curve, still looking eyes wide open to the world (am a serial traveller for living) and to people (beware... ).
Definitely pushing mountains and the "idées reçues" (google it) in order to preserve my faith in human beings and the richness you can get to listen to others and discover how incredible it is to be different...
I am definitely here to share and look at great talents, artists, and even more the underexposed ones.
I am involved in some really great groups :
I am founder of this group:

Quirlicorn Winter Solstice Show 2015 Extension added. New deadline is March 2nd, 2016So have a look, participate, and have fun!
Twice a year the solstices can be observed on either side of the globe. For this solstice we observe the Winter solstice in the northern hemisphere and the Summer solstice in the southern hemisphere.
Quirlicorns gain their magic from the sun and moon respectively and as a result can experience magic they have not yet earned during each solstice.
Your Quirlicorn may celebrate either solstice in this show, though please be mindful of your regions and what parts of the world are currently in Summer and which are in Winter.
For more information on what magics and transformations are available see our Chime Points Journal.
For the purpose of this show you need to draw (or write about) your Quirlicorn(s) using their magic while celebrating the Winter Solstice. They may display magic they have already earned through Chime Points,
2016: Big changes at Project EducateProject Educate
Project Educate is an ongoing endeavor for the Community Relations team -- one we have a lot of passion for and one that we want to lead as successfully as possible. These past few months we have been analysing feedback from the community and from our own team with regards to what we've been doing well here at projecteducate and what we should consider improving upon. We'd like to roll out a series of changes in 2016 in an effort to better cater to the community and offer you all new, long overdue opportunities.
We want projecteducate to be a place where everybody feels welcome; where everybody has a chance to teach, to learn and to lead. Below you will find some of the core changes we will be implementing within the next few weeks:
Community Led Weeks:
The majority, if not all weeks at projecteducate have been led by Community Volunteers. We'd like to change that. projecteducate is a project that was made for the community; so
