Ask me anything in the comments!

NO matter if it is about general photography, my photography or just smalltalking.
I want to talk to you! (and practice my English :eyes: )



Haters

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 24, 2014, 9:06 AM


Hi, everyone. 
I wrote this journal to ask you about your opinions..
Since I got many hater messages like 
Your work is not real!

You are the ugliest photographer in the world


or indirect messages like

Do you also hate it when people receive  DDs over and over again
just after I got a DD...

Well, I am tired of it. I am tired of all the people who tell me I am not worth it. People who say I am not worth the amount of fans I have. I am not worth all the Daily Deviation features I have. People who say I am just a little girl who does not know anything about life. A little girl in her little paradise.

That's not true at all. I am a woman who really knows how to handle life. I know what it means to lose someone close to myself. I know how to communicate with people, and I never want to sound rude.

But. People want to evaluate me although they do not know me. I am working hard for every picture I take. I plan the composition and observe the place I take pictures of before I take any pictures. I edit them in many ways, let my view rest for a day and upload my images a day later. And I try to handle my watchers, fans and friends in a friendly manner. 
But what really makes me angry is to see that friends, people I thought I could communicate with, become jealous of whatever (I still do not understand why people may be jealous of me....) and start spreading hater messages .

I will continue, no matter what all the haters may say, and I will try to be as active as possible (which may not be that easy since I have my apprenticeship now).

And I promise that I appreciate everyone of my watchers. Your lovely comments make my day, and I am so sorry that I do not have the time to answer them. But I read them, and I smile every time!

Thank you for still being my watcher. I love you :heart:


My first week in my apprenticeship + features!

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 6, 2014, 7:59 AM


Hello, everyone!

On September, 1st, I began my apprenticeship as a licensed practical nurse. Standing up at 6AM after vacations in which I slept until noon is my daily routine now. The great thing about standing up early is that my boyfriend also has to do that, since he does the apprenticeship with me! :aww:

The first week dealt with many things, such as rights and duties, and organizing stuff. But we also began with the lessons! To give you a little insight, we learned how exactly the skin looks like (with words like Epidermis, Dermis and Subcutis).

To sum it up: I am happy about it and hope next week will be as awesome as the first!

On to the feature: There you go ;)

Thank you for all the support!! :love:

Being insulted seems to be normal on deviantART-.-

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 26, 2014, 11:54 PM


Hi, everyone.

This deviant posted a meme, which definitely belongs to 9GAG. When I told him, he started insulting me.

Watch the post: 





He calls me a nazi because I am German and that I call myself God of Photography because the only thing I do is holding my camera towards a flower and clicking a simple button. And I would never get a job, by the way! :D

What a shame that I have a real job and do not claim myself as God of photography..

Is he banned now? Because I cannot post any comments to his page now.

What do you think?

Thank you :heart:

After seeing all the comments to my poll...

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 5, 2014, 1:26 AM


... I feel flattered how many of you are still actually here! 

I am sorry myself to be not online that often. I am beginning an apprenticeship in September to become a nurse, and get to take pictures not that often.. 
When I moved to my own flat with my boyfriend, I moved from a kind of village-life towards a life in a big city. There's only one park nearby which is made for relaxing on the lawn.. So there are no flowers, no bugs, nothing amazing to take pictures of. At least for me as a macro photographer. That's why I take pictures once in a while and try to upload old ones which I found in my archives. :aww:

I already considered doing some city-related art, like an "a-thousand-strangers" project or so, but when I think of my apprenticeship again (or my shyness concerning new people) I feel uncomfortable doing this. It seems like I will never complete this project. Thousand strangers?? That's a bunch.
Other projects like 52-weeks or 365-days is not available too, since my lack of time is quite huge.
Do you have any ideas? Otherwise I would just stick to my normal pattern here. 

By the way: I am painting my wall right now, and I hope it will turn out great :D 

90s Hits and awesome songs?

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 28, 2014, 7:07 AM


Hi, everybody! :aww:

Since I totally love 90s music, I want to ask you what your favourite songs from the 90s are.  ;)

Spam here with lots of songs! :heart:

My lovely contributors - a big thank you

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 24, 2014, 4:37 AM


Hello, guys! This is a thank you for the contributors in my team of Breathtaking-photos. They submit so many images to the group and are the ones that are the heart of this group. They are the eye, and I am so thankful to have you. :heart:
Also, I hope I am also a good leader to you..

Because of that I will feature you all together, so that you can watch every deviant on your own! 
Thank you for being with me for such a long time :hug:


(somehow the thumbs do not work properly. So the feature is not the best-designed one, but hey, image is image!)

Your dragonfly-oli 


I will never let photography go!

Journal Entry: Sat May 24, 2014, 9:04 AM


This journal begins with a title that totally describes what I will be writing about now. I still cannot believe how my journey started, and how I went. I gained fans, I gained friends, and I got awards. I learned so much from other artists and nature. It's awesome to see yourself improving, but now I feel like being in an inspirational hole again. Stress is catching up again.. My future is changing again (I must decide between beoming a doctor or becoming a nurse), and I have been to the hospital because they suspected multiple sclerosis...But it has not been proven. Summing it up, life is strikingly stressing right now.

But everytime I see the sun shining and take my camera with me I feel a bit more relaxed. Every negative aspect seems to be thrown away. And the best thing about it all is that I can share my passion with my boyfriend. 
We already planned to buy new lenses when we both begin our apprenticeship. And of course I want to upgrade to a full frame someday. :aww: So my plans are to stay active in the world of photography. The only problem is that I cannot upload that much since I do not have much free time and a stressing life currently.

That's why I am so sorry for being so silent here. But I love deviantART. I love the community, I love the pieces of art I find between so much porn and ponies. 
And I am thankful that you still are with me. And I hope you will also do that in the future. Thank you for being on the same journey with me.

Breathtaking-photos is searching for contributors!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 31, 2014, 3:00 AM


Hey, everybody.
Since the current contributors got very inactive, I'd like to fresh up the group by some new contributors who are active regularly!
"Regularly" means at least one deviation submitted once a month".

By being a contributor, you may submit unlimited pictures! It is important that you do not only submit your own work, but also submit pictures of other people you think may fit into the group :aww:

To apply, just tell me a bit about yourself here and give me 5 thumbs of images (from others) you would submit into the group :aww:

A big sorry!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 28, 2014, 5:37 AM


Heyho, guys.

This journal is created to you all to apologize for my current hiatus. My life has been changed in such an immense way and I still learn how to manage it.
For those of you who want to know: I am living together with my boyfriend for one month already. :aww: Moving out from your parents is a great step which needs to be thought over and over before you really take it. I took it and I am happy I did it. 
Of course the first weeks were pure chaos, but now everything works quite fine for Sascha and me. :aww:

My photography is lacking a bit, though.. Life is stressful, especially because I have a job and a home to manage, but I am still trying to take some pictures, though. Be prepared, I am editing pictures right now. Who knows, maybe new images are coming soon? ;)

By the way: I wrote an article about nature photography, my passion for nature photography and my techniques! The book in which I am is presumed to be released in March, 2014. :onfire:

Last but not least, I want to thank you for all the birthday wishes! I'm 20 now and feel great with it :D


I hope you are fine, guys! 
Kisses! :hug:


Moving out from my Mom tomorrow

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 31, 2014, 12:07 PM


Hi, guys! 
In not even 12 hours I am moving out from my parent's home to live together with my boyfriend. That's why I will be inactive..
Once again, I want to apologize for my abscence here. I am still trying to visit dA everyday.

Thank you for still being with me! :hug:


Happy New Year + four simple resolutions

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 2, 2014, 1:02 PM


Hello, guys! :wave:

I hope your New Year's Eve was great, and I wish you a happy new year! :onfire:
I had a wonderful day with my boyfriend and in the evening we went dancing together. :love:

What are your resolutions? I bet many of you do the standards like loosing fat, getting fit and stop smoking or eating healthier.
Since I know I will never be that motivated to lose any fat or eat any healthier, I made four simple resolutions.

1. I am moving together with my boyfriend. I want to be able to pay it all time and make my boyfriend happy. 

2. I want to balance my job and photography more.

3. I want to start studying or apprenticeship.

4. I want to be happier than in 2013.


:heart: 
Rock on!


My first 2 days in the hospital

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 18, 2013, 2:30 AM


Hi, everybody!

Wow, I never thought working in a hospital is such a great thing. Well, when I had my arm broken years ago, I was angry because I had to wait about three hours. And now, standing on the other side, I see why people have to wait so long. It is such a great thing and you have to walk some kilometers a day! 
8 hours a day is also a feeling I never knew. Sleeping after work is the greatest thing ever. 

Unfortunately my photography is suffering under my current situation. In the mornings I go to work when it's dark, and leave it when it's dark....

But it's fun! :heart:


Hell, DDs are getting more and more useless

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 10, 2013, 2:14 AM


And I do exactly mean that.

It seems like nobody looks for quality these days. The DDs from the last three days are horrible in my opinion. Of course, there are some exceptions, but hell, it surprised me when I saw these.

What do you think about DDs?
