Under the Neon Lights by LiiLiiFish

I love the colors in this image. The reflection is very cool, I thought that it was some water with ripples in it at first, then I real...

Drop II by RobinHedberg

Excellent use of your depth of field. Noting that a 5.6 aperture was used to bring our attention to the water drop on the chain link. I...

I am working on a new digital art magazine called Basic Art Magazine or BAM for short. I am interested in featuring various artists that I know from here on DA as well as people who are outside of this site. If you have any interest in being featured please submit works to my email address of using the subject header Basic Art Magazine and I will look the items over. Also if you are up to being interviewed for this magazine that would be great as well. You can download a brief preview issue from this link:…

Please share with your friends here on DA. :)

Well where to start....
Well, lets see, first My father met my mother then the stork dropped me down in the cabbage patch. But my father being a busy farmer did not notice me for a couple of months, during that time I was raised by wild boars... Then the Ufo's came and here I am..... Wait, that's not correct...

Okay, lets try I grew up on a rural farm in Iowa, joined the army, traveled the world for 12 years then ended right back in Iowa. I currently reside in Hiawatha, Iowa where I work full time at the Ottsen Oil Company and write on the weekends.

I like photography, painting, writing, hanging out at the coffee shops and my friends. I never seem to have any down time as I always have projects in the works. Even now I am writing one novel and two short stories at the same time whilst playing my drums and guitar.

Life is for the living and I am getting some living done!

I have several years photography experience. I started taking photos when I was seven with my grandmothers old brownie camera. I bought my first camera of my own when I was 12 and have never looked back. I also love to work with 3D programs and photoshop. I have used Illustrator and several other graphic programs as well. As always if you have a specific question on any techniques that I may use please send me a note or leave a message and I will get back to you with the answer if I know it.

Currently I am still using a Cannon 30D (one tough camera!) Digital camera and I am planning on purchasing the 50D later on for my work.

Current Residence: Hiawatha, Iowa
deviantWEAR sizing preference: XL, XD :)
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite photographer: Hiroh Kikai
Operating System: Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Linux, Jolicloud, Moblin

Personal Quote: Live as though each day is your last and you will never be sad.

:blowkiss: Hello! I'm going through favorites I've missed in the past and thanking people, so bear with me for taking so long to give a personal reply.
:iconrubcheeksplz: Thank you SO much for your support by adding some of my pieces to your favorites last year. :giggle: A long time ago, I know! But I had to thank you sometime!

This is a formal invitation to come and see where my gallery has gone since then, since I believe I've vastly improved. :love: If you don't care for it no harm done and I won't bother you anymore. :D
