The soft click of the camera, a flash of light and a moment in time captured forever. Maybe digitally, maybe on film, the medium is never as important as the memory or moment caught. A group of people, a sunset, or even a fish jumping out of the water, a photograph is a way to feel the emotion and context of that exact moment. Celebrate that, on this picturesque Photography Day! (August 19)
History of Photography Day
The photograph originally was made by Nicéphore Niépce, using silver chloride coating a piece of paper. However, the photo would eventually turn fully dark as he knew no way to remove the silver chloride from the paper to preserve the photo. Photographs got better and better over the years, first with the ‘still camera’, and the ability to take a picture that way. Think the old west in America, and that camera’s differences to the ones of World War 2, then compare them to modern cameras. The major jumps in technology affected photography as much as any other facet of life around the world. With Kodak, Canon and so many other brands out there, it was of no surprise when the market of photography got such a jump, even more so with the military and surveillance capabilities offered as cameras got better, lighter and more easily used. Yet for all the innovation and creativity, science and even the large amount of art that occurs in the photography realm, not much can beat the simple pleasure of snapping photos and developing your frames to enjoy the integrity of the photos.
Pretty neat, ey?
Well, to celebrate this day, since SFM art is like photography, I am holding a contest. What is this contest?
Well my good chum, the rules are simple:
Create an art piece in SFM using 1 pony model model of your choice. (Please no distracting OC's)
you can post edit the piece anyway you want, as long as the original render was done in SFM.
The piece must include a good use of landscape in your scene build. The theme being chosen is landscape based photography. (examples www.google.com/search?q=landsc…
The landscape itself can be the focal point of the image, or the pony, as long as both are included!
Submit your entry by tagging
when you upload it to DeviantArt.
The winner will receive 1 month of core membership!!!
So yeah! That's pretty much it. You're free to create whatever landscape you like!
