Talented Artists Featured + DD suggest update :D

Journal Entry: Mon May 3, 2010, 2:23 PM


Hello people,

Update:
Just found out a DD I suggested actually got one :D

Here it is

In the digital era by Marco-art



What is it with the hate against spiders? It's starting to bother me that I get comments on every spider-photo I upload saying "Eww"
"that's disgusting!" or the best I've seen "Great shot, I would fav this if I didn't have so much hate for spiders".

Spiders are very interesting and beautiful creatures. Learn what spiders do before judging it by it's looks. Because I think doing that is quite shallow, even with animals and insects.

If you want to complain about spiders do it somewhere else, not with someone who appreciate these things.

Anyway........

I thought it was time to put some truly gifted artists in the spotlight.

oy Dynnad.. for some reason I think I may have been culprit on commenting some of those things, I'm not sure anymore. BUt yes, I DID have a EWE in recent spider pic title. :ashamed:
Sorry if my comments have offended anyone. But you know, I think one can not really prescribe the kind of comments people are allowed to post under our pictures. Ofcourse we all like to get a certain kind and not another. However, seeing what feelings, thoughts, emotions gets brought out by our pictures ~ erm, let's say *you* pictures.. is also very interesting, and can work different than first impression or comment tells you

I personally have always had that yukky feeling with SOME animals, and especially INSECTS, the biting sort.
At the same time, you know, I would not worry too much about people's comments. Because, some of those images you take are mesmerizing, and so pretty. And indeed, they DO bring more understanding for subjects people used to fear. So.. even if the comments aren't quite what you expected, or wanted.. you DO bring changes about.

For, just for your information, it is YOUR photographs that have me approach, instead of running away now.
It is *your* photographs, that have me WANTING to take close-up shots. Because I DO realize they're incredibly beautiful.
And because I WANT to overcome those "silly" fears. Because if *you* dare to take those pretty pictures, why shouldn't I try and do the same?
Your pictures CHALLENGE me in ways I've never thought possible. you have NO idea.


So.. for all the negative comments, pls know the importance of your pictures, and pls NEVER underestimate the impact of them!
Sometimes they need some time maybe, before sinking in, or SHOWING results. But they actually do DO something.
**
There, now that out the way.. anybody who wants to let loose on fear for spiders, I took this tiny tiny ridiculously tiny one. But underneath are some stories that tell about events, and fear. those who need to, pls feel free to add your own. And yes, I just took the *ewe* OUT of the title.. :lmao: (again, cause by YOU, Dynnnad.. lol)
[link]


And then how about ~ with Dynnad's permission~ maybe he would allow me to link to one of HIS images of his choice, showing the beauty of those spiders we're afraid of?
Maybe to counterbalance again, fear and beauty?

By the way, for me spiders are NOT as bad as wasps, bees, bumblebees and hornets. I have intense fear of those. Possible because my siblings have shown bad allergic reaction to stings, and because I therefore may have it too. I've never been bit, but maybe the fact I *run* is because I subconsciously KNOW I should AVOID ever being bitten or stung by em.
At the same time, I now find myself ging TO em, because
I. Want. That. Shot.

All that's all because of Dynnad's photographs...
So I guess, it's not all bad :icongrin--plz:

Thank you very much for sharing that story...

I agree with you that it could lead to those reactions, but you have to type it first which means you've had time to think about the photo.

You've made the decision that what you type is what you really wanted to type and what you want the artist to see.

If someone were to see the picture in real life I could understand an ewww.

It's the time that I put into the photo to get that shot, which can be hours (being in the garden mainly) and then you receive comments with just "ewww" I think it would annoy you too.

Like you have worked on a pie for a few hours and someone tastes and just goes eww and walks away.

In this instance I think Eww is just destructive criticism..


And I do appreciate that you are being moved by my photography, that's very nice to hear. And that's what I'm trying to do.

I'm not out to make people feel disgusted.

And by the way you can call me Danny, that's my real name hehe :D

thanks. yeah..
``It's the time that I put into the photo to get that shot, which can be hours (being in the garden mainly) and then you receive comments with just "ewww" I think it would annoy you too.``

yeah, I hear you. Though most people never think about the time taken or effort done by the photographer. Most people just look at the shot only.

When you look at any photograph, do you* always think about what the photographer went through to take something?
I guess doing that, may certainly increase one`s appreciation for certain images, whereas before it`s just another shot

ok so. . . people can be afraid of being up high on a beautiful mountain right, they may appreciate its beauty but a still freaking scared. People have fears and as much as you dont have them, if someone says they love your shot but wont fav it due to it having something they are afraid of on it makes complete sense. Id be kinda happy they like my shot and are being honest.

If you only say "Eww" it doesn't really come over as liking your shot.

I think the fear is caused by some basic instinct from deep within some people. Most of the people get the shivers from spiders. Personally I think they're truly amazing and very interesting to watch their behavior. Also, your spider photo's of the last few days are totally awesome :P
Reply
:icondynnnad:
Dynnnad Featured By Owner May 5, 2010
I agree, they are amazing creatures!

But when you type a comment you think of what you want the artist to read. If that's just showing disgust I think you could just as well not comment at all :P

Thanks man :D

Is't in our genes: fear of spiders :spin: . An inheritance of former days, when it was necessary to be afraid of them. Don't blame people for something they can't help. Just go on and submit your spider-pictures, people don't want to offend personally :huggle:

Lovely journal with amazing Art :wave:

I don't blame people for being afraid, I'm blaming people who don't look at the artistic side, I put hours into my macro photos, finding these creatures and editing afterwards... a simple "Eww" over the internet (so you had time to think what to comment) is just plain stupid.

I'm glad you like the selection! :D

I understand what you mean and you're right. People shouldn't reply with only an Ewww. It must be frustrating for you, when you have been so busy making these photo's. I'll keep that in mind when I see those scary-spider-pictures again. And you do have a wonderful gallery, my compliments :):)

I, personally, am not a big fan of spiders or many insects for that matter. But I don't really mind looking at them.

No matter what I do not like when I see it in real life, up close and personal, if a photograph aesthetically looks appealing to me, I won't mind it.

Beauty comes with different lenses. It is just how you view it through these lenses.

I can understand if some people don't like certain things and they are entitled to speak their mind about it but I believe that there are limits.

You are free to put whatever you want on your account. :)b

I agree with your motivation, I also agree that people should speak their mind.

But just showing disgust of someone's photos while hard work is put in them is just disrespectful

That last part I definitely agree with. Again, there must be a line drawn somewhere. Critiques =/= bashing; they should not be lingering with bias.

A spider bite can be fatal but that's no reason to hate photographs of them. People on DeviantART are just crazy, I've tried to understand people on here but I just can't.

It's because some of them can be deadly. And I'm serious.

But I do find some spiders cute. Especially jumpers.

I know, but what I meant with the journal is that people give these stupid comments about how they don't like it... which basically has nothing to do with the photo. That's what's really annoying me...

They look very cute indeed haha, I love those eyes :D

I wouldn't say I'm scared of them, but they can occasionally give me the willies (especially if one of them -- and a larger one at that -- turns up rather suddenly in a place I'm not expecting - i.e. on the bathroom wall right as I turn on the light). If I have something handy to capture it in, I'll usually trap it and then let it go outside in our garden (let it catch the bugs that we don't want). But yeah, complaining about spider pictures on DA just seems odd. If you don't like spiders, then don't look at spider pictures.

:icondynnnad:
Dynnnad Featured By Owner May 3, 2010
Yeah they can be very scary if you don't expect them, but a human in an alley at night is too hehe :D

And I completely agree with you on the last part, just leave the pictures alone.

....which is why you probably won't catch me in an alley at night :sprint: *lol*

But yeah, my aunt was a teacher and she had a pet-tarantula in her classroom, after school was out - if she went on a vacation or something - she'd always leave it with us to 'spider-sit' for a week or two. I loved watching her...so fascinating.
