I know I haven't been active on here for a VERY long time, but I'm determined to pick this up again in 2014. I think deviantART was the very first online community I shared my photography on, so it always has this special place for me. 

So... 2014. Have you got big plans? I sure do. If everything goes right and I graduate by the end of this month, this is going to be the first year in which I will be a fulltime photographer! It's so exciting, yet also scary... But I'm mostly excited though, to get into a new adventure and be free to take on every challenge that I like and also challenge myself more. 

How is your outlook on the new year? Big changes? New adventures? Tell me!

I rarely enter photography contests, but this seemed like a fun one. I can win 750 euros and I get to do a commercial shoot with professional models and a professional photographer helping me and giving me tips. You can vote for one of my photos (whichever you like best!) here:

schietasa.nl/image/65

I don't really like the voting system, it's just whoever has the most online friends, but I thought I'd give it a try because the prizes are so cool!

Thank you all in advance for voting, it would really mean a lot to me! :heart:
I'm kind of annoyed with dA at the moment. Sometimes I see things that are posted about 1 day ago, have 239892847 faves and 23892 comments and 92374298734 views, and when I look at the photo, I go: the fuck is this supposed to be?! And then I see the endless list of groups it has been submitted to on the right. So now, I kind of understand how it gets some attention, but how does it get so much positive attention, while very very good photography that is submitted in just a few groups gets little to no attention? I figured, "maybe this is how dA works these days... maybe I need to join some more groups." This, because, I have the feeling it isn't about watchers so much anymore. It's more about the groups. And especially the "will accept anything" groups... It kinda grinds my gears, to be very honest. It's all about broadcasting your shit, good or bad, to as many people as possible. I don't feel like that's gonna generate very genuine feedback... I'd much rather like people to comment/fave when they REALLY like my stuff, not because they know I'll comment/fave back or something shitty like that. But, oh well.

And now, I can't join more groups because I don't have a premium membership anymore. Super annoyed...
I've just deleted all my active prints here on dA. I've sold a print once or twice, but have found out that most of the money that is paid for it, goes to dA. I'm not a greedy person who wants all the profit or anything, I just think it's unfair to the person buying the print.

I started wondering if people would still like to buy prints of my photography, and how to do so. I've heard some things about redbubble.com, but I'm not sure if that's the best option.

So, my question to you all:

Would you want to buy prints of my photography?
And if so, what photos would you love to see on your wall?

Do you think Redbubble is a good option for this or do you know something else I could use?
I'm really wondering.
I just wanted to say, thank you all so much for supporting me here on deviantART.
I really appreciate all the views, comments and other lovely messages, even though I'm not as active as I used to be.

If you want to see more of my photography, you should check out my Flickr (link above) and follow me there.
Or you can keep track of what I'm doing on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/metzfotografie
I started a new 365-days-like project with a few other photographers recently, all those pictures will be on Flickr and Facebook.


THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH :heart:

stay creative.
love,
Sabine

Just wondering

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 22, 2010, 8:48 AM


Since I'm doing more and more photoshoots (from glamour shots to the 'looks nice on my mums wall' kind of thing), and it's always a surprise to me how people react to the rates of my photoshoots, I was wondering: What would you be willing to pay for a photoshoot by me?
I've created a poll here: petitpomme.deviantart.com/jour…
and more of my client work can be found here on my Flickr: www.flickr.com/photos/acidglos…

Right now, the rates for a photoshoot with studio lighting and retouching will start at 60 euros (approx. 80 dollars).
Would you be willing to pay this price? And why would you or would you not?

Llama madness.

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 3, 2010, 8:46 AM


No this is not because I want to get faves. This is because I want to give llama's. :llama:
If you want a llama, just tell me!

Giving everyone that faves anything a llama badge instead of a thank you.
Because I can.
And llama's are awesome.

Annoyed with dA.

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 14, 2010, 1:06 PM


Lately I've been kind of annoyed with dA for several reasons...

- My message center is exploding because of crappy group submissions.
- A lot of groups have stupid people on top that don't know what they're doing.
- I tried to get 4 deviations in a group I'm not going to name, and all we're declined and no one can give me a reason. When I look at the rest of the deviations there that do get accepted, I really don't get the point.
- Points? What? Urgh.
- Stacks were a good idea to start with, but now they're just stacking everything possible and I lost all overview. It's annoying me so much. >.<
- The community itself is just... kind of... lame, sometimes. A lot of the ART in deviantART is lost, I think. And part of that is their own fault.
- I took a look at dA 7, and it sucks.

So, yeah. If I don't reply that fast or don't reply at all to your messages, it's because of all this.
Sorry.

Hey there!

I just wanted you to know that there's an awesome new group: We-Are-Photographers :new:
My boyfriend and I thought deviantART needed a fun photographers group. I know, I know, there are a lot of photography groups, but this is going to be different. It's not about who enters the best or who is contributing the most, just about having fun and sharing. :heart:

SO JOIN TODAY! :iconflowerdanceplz:

So. sick. of this.

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 28, 2010, 7:44 AM


That was IT. I'm DONE with the photography projects that involve more than two people and myself. When I do, I'm just bound to get screwed over. And over. And over. I have done two projects with groups, one has finally paid at least something after more than a month (because I was threatening to send a debt collection agency after their ass), but still not all the money we had agreed. The other group decided they weren't 'happy with how we handeled things' and they just said: we won't be using the photos, we're sorry it had to go this way. Like, what? You're not going to pay me because you're not using the photos? So, I made time for you for nothing? I dragged my ass over there for nothing, putting up with your ignorant group members and this is what I get? "We're sorry"? Damn. I'm so done.

I've used tumblr before, and lately been using it to post inspirational photos I found on here and elsewhere on the internet. But I wanted to do a little more, so I started over. Now I post writings, songs, quotes and photos on this tumblr.
Please have a look and follow me if you want. :) I'll follow back! Always like to see what other deviants post on other websites, it's very interesting to see I think.

Link me to your tumblr in the comments!!

I want to wish you all a happy New Year and I want to thank everyone times 2835792375 for the loads of support I got past year, even on the very last day.
