SUMMER FEATURES AND TODAY'S DD

Journal Entry: Mon May 13, 2013, 3:18 PM
Helloooooooo!!!

How are you guys??

First of all, I'm so glad I was featured by the lovely Pixel-Spotlight :iconpixel-spotlight:, this was a GREAT surprise to me! It gave my day the right touch :aww:

You know, sometimes it happens something like the today's DD and it always happens in such an unexpected way.... I'm speechless.
I think "wow, this is just my hobby, but they do really like what I'm doing!" and this is really amazing. Thank you so much!

As you all know my sitters are not models. This is because I like to photograph people I know very well, with whom is easy to break the ice (with friends you don't even have to).
Sometimes I get criticised because some people say that my sitters look a lot better in my pictures than in the reality... Once I got upset, and I mean VERY upset, for that criticism, now I simply answer "is that a BAD thing??" :aww:

We artist have to cope with criticism every day. The most disappointing aspect it's not the critique itself, but it may be very tough to understand which ones are the real ones and which come from just envious people. And you must believe me when I say that 90% of the bad criticism you get comes from this kind of critics. But it is properly that 10% that will make your picture a great picture, if you only have the "eye" to distinguish them from the others.

Frankly, you can't be an artist if you don't listen to the people who criticise your work. When I started to take portraits I got utterly frustrated when people criticised me, but these days I see that you don't become a better artist if you only listen to people who say "oh, wow, this look ammmmazing!!!". Sometimes they compliment you only because they don't want to "hurt" you. Well, let's say that you improve your skills only thank to those people who will tell you what they think. And YOU should do so as well! Don't hesitate to say "I don't like it" if you really don't, because you're not criticising the artist but their work. The artist can cope with the critique, but if they don't listen to it because they are afraid of them, their work will never reach the highest point.  

***


Well, hope you'll agree with me, but this seems the right moment to do some features :D
These are the works which caught my eye in the last few months... Aren't they simply AMAZING?? I'd love to be the one who took them!

FAVE, FAVE and FAVE 'em all :aww:
