Dream big, live fast.Dear friends,
Today I had a spare afternoon and thought, "I have been neglecting DeviantART for such a long time, why not write a journal entry?" So here I am. I know not a lot of you probably read this or will comment or even see it, but at least it's here for those who do stumble across it and have time to read it. I just felt like writing.
To everyone who supports me along this winding photography path, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Even if I don't get to reply to everyone who messages, emails and comments, I still always and forever appreciate it more than you would ever know. You all fill me with such confidence and push me through the times when I think, "Why am I doing this?" Thank you, my beautiful army of dreamers.
When I was younger my parents told me that the two most important things in life were "happiness" and "health". And pursuing photography as a full time career and making it into my life has made me one of the happiest little people. I would spend my child

Hello friends!Dear friends,
I'm sorry for not writing in what feels like an age. To think the last entry I wrote was for the New Year makes me feel old, I can't believe how quickly time has flown! Bliss first 3 months of the year with lots of exciting things happening and unfolding. One baby step at a time.
I now officially have a blog: heartful dream Pretty please do leave me a comment over there. I find myself relying on happy little comments to spur me to continue creating blog posts, and I love hearing from old and new friends. [:
What have you all been getting up to since 2011 rolled in? I hope life has been treating you all really well and that you're all happy. Do tell me what you've all been busying yourself with, I'd love to hear what news you all have.
Thank you all for the love, support, comments and favourites. You are my inspiration and I honestly couldn't see myself taking photos without your encouragement. You are an army of dreamers
goodbye 2010.as it is the last day of 2010 tomorrow i have decided that a deviantart journal would be a good opportunity to reflect and write down my hopes and dreams for 2011.
2010 has been deliciously wild. i have had my camera around my neck every single day and it has been the best year in that respect. some days i was out of breath, drained of energy but doing something i was so passionate about kept me rolling on. there have been the low dips too, of course, but i truly think that the positive moments have outweighed the bad.
whether you support me on deviantart, flickr, facebook, twitter, in real life or anywhere else; i thank you now for making 2010 the best year yet. i hope altogether we can keep building an army of dreams and youth to eventually take over the world. thank you for all the support, love, comments, favourites, laughs and new friendships. you have all been stars to me, so thank you.
my highlights have been everything. celebrating 3 whole years with nathan, stargazing on the g
How are you all? I hope life is being good to you all. I'm just dropping by for a quick update. Lately a lot of people have been asking for more actions and curves. After a lot of umm'ing and ahh'ing I have finally decided to release some of my most precious colours for sale.
As a photographer your colours are as important as secrets to a magician. Releasing them is always a huge step into the secret world of how you work and I have spent years playing with colours through curves and actions so I feel they are like children to me.
I have put a few up for sale here: http://colourfulwhispers.tumblr.com/
Surprisingly I have already sold some copies, I had no idea they'd do so well and it has filled me with confidence that my colours are going to loving new homes where they will be enjoyed and used lots and lots.
So if you're interested too then please do drop me a line and let me know!
Until next time!
Our First (Working!) Video.Last night Facebook decided to work, so I put my faith in it yet again for it to bork up this morning. So I'm really sorry that you guys got stupid broken links, that's the last time I try to share anything through Facebook with you guys!
So I've been wanting to film a vintage style video for many, many months now. I finally got onto it the other day and Nathan and I ended up getting some really pretty footage. I spent my Saturday editing it and it is finally done! I may or may not apply for a DeviantART film account, but in the meantime, you can view our first ever film here:
And this is the new and lovely link to Youtube!
What do you guys think?! We'd love to hear your feedback. Sorry that the previous link messed up. ]:

Imagine that you are a young social worker, dedicated to finding out the hidden and forgotten old souls who haunt the cold, mean streets of the city. You seek to report on their living conditions, possibly recommending they be removed from their roach-infested “homes.”

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.
