A stunning portrait. Truly. You can't tell if it was staged or not, which gives the viewer a large sense of impact. The editing techniq...


expectations by Sea-of-Ice

Ladders are generally used to get from one place to another. Usually a place that is unobtainable by yourself. Either to a higher spot on a tree or to the top of a roof. But sometimes the place you want to reach, what you really think you need, isn’t always what you expect.

the exhaust of life


It feels good to finally create this piece because I'm sure it is a feeling we can all relate to at some point in our lives. The ups and downs of life can be exhausting after a while.

I've been wanting to create this piece for a long time. It was an idea I had near the start of my fineart career. This was also my first time using smoke bombs! Luckily, now that I live in Oregon, a giant plume of smoke doesn't cause as much alarm as it does in California...

I apologize for these types of posts....It just saddens me so much to see how Deviantart has changed its front page system....and if it hasn't changed...then what is going on?!

Photography has always taken blows for not being considered art form and Deviantart is allowing those blows to be justified. I'm not saying every photograph needs to be conceptual to be considered art, but come on...give us something to work with! The photographs that have been appearing lately are, technically, terrible photographs, yet may be popular for another reason *cough cough, cosplay or BOOBS* Deviantart needs to save the fine art realm of photography...are those not the photos that spark and inspire the many minds on Deviantart?  This is mainly for the portrait section of photography. Honestly, go view the photography section, then people and portraits....on the first page is there anything that inspires you? Shouldn't that be at the top of the list?  There are so many talented inspiring photographers on Deviantart that can inspire thousands....yet they are clouded by the inaccuracies of what is art on Deviantart.

Hello! You can call me Robby =]

I have always been fascinated with images that people do not normally see.

For years I have been struggling to find ways to creatively express myself. Only until recently have I started to take photography very serious. It is through photography that I have been able to tell my stories...and show emotion through imagery. I am constantly plagued by images in my head and sleeping proves difficult at times. Yet, I am blessed to have the ability to express these visions through photography (to the best of my ability anyway)....and I hope to get better and stronger.

I have a lot of dreams and goals...and I won't stop until I complete every one of them. The ability of some photographers just blows my mind...but it is those people that I admire (and envy sometimes!) that pushes me forward. I want to make people feel, what I have felt through other people's work.

I want to provide inspiration to other photographers and eventually be known amongst the photography world; I want to prove that if you follow your dreams anyone can make it to where they want to be.
