Hello everyone! :wave:

First off, my apologies for the inactivity! But I promise to provide you with a legitimate reason for being inactive on dA!

So, this past year has been one with SO many big changes. Last fall I just started my first year of university studies! I am proud to say that I just finished my last exam yesterday and I have officially completed my first year! :happybounce: :happybounce:
I am in a engineering program (specializing in civil engineering), and for those of you who know what university is like, it is not an easy program! With almost 40 hours of school per week, and homework/studying on top of that, I have hardly been able to find time to be creative. :( However, this summer I plan on taking lots of pictures and hopefully investing in some new camera equipment!

I've learned a lot of things this past year, that extend beyond the engineering concepts from class. Here are a few:

1. It is possible to be in a difficult program, without depending on coffee to stay up, and maintaining at least 8 hours of sleep a day. How do I know? Because I just proved it this year. No all-nighters, no coffee, no energy drinks. It just takes good work ethic and time management to ensure that you get enough sleep every night.

2. There will always be narrow-minded people everywhere you go. It's just a fact of life. I thought that by attending a globally recognized school with students from all around the world, the school would be filled with open minded people. There are some great people that I have great conversations with, and then there are the other not-so-great ones. I was very disappointed to find that the vast majority of students in engineering programs make fun of students in other programs, particularly in the arts, claiming that "they'll never get a job" or "arts degrees are useless". Personally, I value the arts just as much as I value other programs. We need to have a balance in this world; can you imagine a world completely FULL of engineers? No. Most would be jobless because we would have exceeded the demand for engineers, and there would be a greater demand for workers in other fields. Variety is key. Some narrow minded people just don't understand this.

3. It's important to socialize. Have some balance in life besides studying. I'm not saying that I follow this advice all the time, as I am quite a shy and somewhat antisocial person. I had a group of friends to hang out with during my first semester, and they were good people. I had a "friend group" so I didn't really interact with people outside this group. But second semester, I socialized more and came to find two wonderful people who I can relate more to (and we'll be roommates next year!). Not saying that my friends in first semester were bad, but they just weren't completely right for me. I'm glad to have found a supportive friend group who have similarities, differences, and overall bring out the best in me.

4. Be thankful. I cannot express how thankful I am for my mom who supported me from such a long distance when I was away. When you live with someone for so long, you kind of take them for granted. Never again will I ever take my mom's wonderful home cooking for granted!

Okay last off, I just want to thank the people who continue to watch me, leave comments, favourites, and llamas. 
Thank you for the birthday wishes, journal features and cake badge! I will try my best to get some new photos up soon!

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 9:20 AM


I joined deviantART 2 and a half years ago. Why and how I stumbled upon this site, I don't remember.
I saw the "join deviantART for free" button and clicked on it, since anything that is free appeals to me =P

I truly loved the online community and the feedback I got from artists around the world. It is nice to get constructive comments from people outside my little circle of friends.

When I first started, I really didn't know what type of photography I was interested in. But after looking at other people's galleries and experimenting with different styles on my own time, I have discovered that I am most interested in still life, macro and landscape photography.

One of my biggest inspirations on this site has been Kara-a. Her works are stunning and showed me that I don't need to purchase a bunch of expensive camera equipment to take cool photos. I learned about what close-up filters are and made a purchase so I could take macro photos without making the expensive purchase of a macro lens (of course I plan on upgrading someday). Here are some of my favourites of hers:
First Snow by Kara-aLittle Rainbow by Kara-aFragments Of Time by Kara-a
I requested from her to create a tutorial which has helped me create many of the works I have in my gallery.
Tutorial : Falling WaterdropsTime for another Tutorial :la:

Sorry for uploading it as a journal and not as a deviation, but it is easier and faster for me :aww:
The tutorial is about this kind of photos :
( it's actually quite easy :meow: )
   
1. What you need : :D
Bullet; Black a DSLR camera
( maybe Bridge cameras will work too )
Bullet; Black your normal 18-55mm lens or something similar
Bullet; Black a paper with the subject you want to reflect
Bullet; Black a faucet
2. The Setup
I know that it is totally unprofessional, but who cares? It works :D

  

Bullet; Black just use your ba


I am also inspired by:

cloduyI will always remember you by cloduyDay 7 by cloduy
dragonfly-oliLittle hopes in the stormy sea. by dragonfly-oli17.52 - Rest in peace. by dragonfly-oli

Of course, I am not even near their levels of skill but someday I hope to be as great of a photographer as they are!

Through deviantART I have become a much better photographer who has learned many new tips and skills from experienced people on this site. Of course, I am still far from being a professional! Haha

Just an ordinary girl who loves art (:

I've been sketching since a young age but I won't be posting drawings very often. Since my drawings usually take more than 2 hours (yeah, I like perfection), with school and other activities I don't really have much time for that anymore.

So... recently I've developed a passion for photography. I love doing macro shots but I'm a fail at portraits. I don't really specialize in any specific type of photography, just experimenting around with different styles, so you might notice my gallery is "all over the place" (animals, objects, nature, etc).

I am really aiming to improve my skills so please don't hesitate to give constructive criticsm!

I try my best to reply to comments and such. Unfortunately I simply don't have enough time to personally write a "thank you" to everyone who favourites my artwork, but I just want to let everyone know that each favourite, comment or watch really makes me happy and it means a lot to me that people are enjoying my photos!

Well anyways, thank you to anyone who has even read my bio this far! Hope it wasn't too boring to read.. (:

Please do not thank me for the fav, watch or llama. You are all very welcome!!!
