How Did They Do That?! Photo Episode 2
How Did They Do That?! Episode 2
It takes a lot to create a great photo, and sometimes the process seems like a mystery to the casual observer. In each episode of How Did They Do That?!, I interview a photographer about the creative process behind one of his or her recent popular photos. This time, I talk to =hakanphotography about what went into creating Pinar Eris Collection-Dreamer8.

:1: Can you tell me some of the technical details about this photo?
Shot on Canon 5D with a Canon 17-40mm f/4L lens. Pushed it out to 17mm at 100 ISO using f/5.6 (which is the sharpest aperture for this lens in my opinion) with 1/125 shutter speed. No flash, using natural light. But these values mean nothing because every shot will have their own characteristics depending on the location and the lighting so you would ne

Time to vote for the best COLORFUL ART!!!
This has been one of the most daunting projects I've taken on to date. I was originally going to do the judging by myself but there are so many wonderful pieces here, it's only fair to extend the final voting to the whole community.
1st place:
- 1 month subscription and custom CSS layout made to fit the winners gallery! I will even use images from your own gallery to create your layout (*if requested)!
- Featured Artist spot for 1 month (3-4 pieces from their gallery of their choice).
2nd place:
- Custom image. Whatever you want! Could even be an avatar or deviantID. Could even be another custom CSS layout if the second place winner is already a subscriber.
- Featured Artist spot for 1 month (3-4 pieces from their gallery of their choice).
3rd place:
- Featured artist spot for 1 month(3-4 pieces from their gallery of their choice).
The honorable mentions will have their entry featured in my 'Featured Art' section!

--- Photographers Wanted ---
Are you bored? Do you own a digital camera? Well then this is the right place for you. photohunt is a game for all photographers. The rules are you are given a topic and then you have 20 minutes to go off and shoot it. ( the image must be new and taken within the 20 minutes) You then come back and do minor adjustments to it such as contrast and converting to black and white if u want. Then you thumb it in the chat and you are judged. If you win your shot will be posted in the :iconphotohunt: journal. Sound fun? Well it is. But beware it is addicting. So if you are ready to start hunting then stop by here ------>Photohunt Chat

Portfolio Page...Contest! CLOSED
Portfolio Page...Contest!
**UPDATE** The contest is now closed and winners will be announced Monday!
So as many of you may recall, we promised to add a special portfolio page to subscribers accounts? Well, we are working on getting those rolling out but we have come to a stumbling block trying to decide exactly how they should look. And hey, since you guys will be the ones using them we decided you should be the ones who get to choose what they look like. But first…
For those unfamiliar with the concept I shall explain. The portfolio page will be a page that has a space for personal information, contact information, and the ability to place deviations on them of your choosing. The deviations will have no commentary on them, and a description will be optional. You may also pick and choose what deviations go on them. Primarily with things like this you would use it to showcase your strongest work.
The page itself will be

I'm an Applications Analyst/Software Engineer from SC. I am a serious amateur photographer and primarily enjoy nature photography, though I do a fair amount of other work.

While I do occasionally do paid work, I prefer to keep photography primarily as a hobby, not a business.
