Aloha everybody,

my last journal is nearly a year old, but as I wouldn't do any features without the thumbs I thought it would be best, to simply let the feature here as long as I could.
Maybe its a little to early to tell you a bit about the year, but who knows if I will find the time to write a journal around christmas. Not taking the chance, so here a little review of 2012.

Technically
- I got myself the Sony 16-105mm lens - its great and I nearly use it all the time now, if I'm not shooting macros.
- Since two weeks, my homepage is online - please feel free to have a look at: www.photo-upper-art.com :) (already uploaded pictures here on dA will get the watermark step by step)
- I really really need to clean the sensor of my camera *note down for 2013 *gg

Personally
- I did some nice little trips to Dresden, Saxon Switzerland or the Baltic Sea during the year. Its so nice to get out and see something different :)
- I've been in Italy for a week during summer and it was absolutely fantastic! What should I say, you may have seen the pictures. If not, just start here.
- I will have the opportunity to exhibit some photographs in 2013 :w00t:

Whats to come in 2013?
- First of all the exhibition of my pictures. Originally it was planned for this year but had to be postponed to next year due to some circumstances I couldn't do anything about.
- I'll start my first 52-week project with six other photographers. I think it will be fantastic, so I hope you'll like it too :) I'll share some more information with you as soon as I can :)
- I would like to continue with little short trips in Germany. Those were so much fun this year.
- I would like to continue to improve my photography and even may do some manips again (would love too).
- I would like to do more portraits, and I'm working on that :)
- If I can afford it, I would like to buy a better 55-300mm and a 100mm macro lens.. ..hey, a girl can dream :D

So what do you think? I know I uploaded less pictures this year, but did I improve? Do you see any difference or development?

As always take care :heart:

Watermarks and Feature

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 31, 2012, 5:00 AM




Aloha everybody :)

Before I will share some recent favs with you, I would like to ask your opinion. First the story: I stumbled across a website where several images (mostly nature photography) where taken to illustrate poems. So far so good. They even linked back to deviantart but they changed the image as they wrote the poem ON the image itself. It would have been okay if they have asked me first. After some e-mails they took my picture down.
My question now is: Should I use watermarks? If so, anything big or rather small? What should I write on it? I don't have a website yet but I'm active in different communities, I wouldn't want to change it on every page o.o How do you handle that? For that purpose as well, I just wrote a poll and I would be happy if you could show me how you see it or just participate :) Please send me any suggestions you might have for a watermark. Thanks :)

Now to the fun part, enjoy! :aww:

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 31, 2011, 8:36 AM




Aloha everybody!

:bulletred: First of all, I would like to wish you a happy new year! May 2012 be successful for you and that your new years resolutions come true...or at least some;)

:bulletred: Second, I would like to thank the anonymous deviant who gave 3 months subscription to me! Thank you so much :glomp:

:bulletred: Third, I would like to thank you all for your support on my second DD: Reading between the lines I am so happy about it but its difficult for me now to upload any new pictures... every picture seems somehow not right. Do you know, what I mean? I hope you still enjoy watching me (if you do :)) and I'm always glad about feedback!
I would like to use this journal as well to thank you, my dear friends, for your support :heart:

Subscription + Point of Simplicity

Journal Entry: Tue May 31, 2011, 1:54 AM




Aloha everybody,

First of all I would like to thank Merlinator for the subscription :glomp: I won the first PhotoART Contest at nemesis-artgroup.de and he donated 1200 :points: I'm so happy :aww:

Point of Simplicity
As some of you may have noticed I'm totally into minimalistic photography (as well as black/white, landscape, close-ups, story telling images *stops)... the point is - Ode-to-simplicity is one of my favourite groups here on dA and teyasaveleva published her first magazine "Point of Simplicity" some days ago. Its a beautiful layout and includes some interesting interviews. I feel so honoured to be included. You may have a look at it here: point-of-simplicity.blogspot.c… Enjoy! Can't wait for the next issue :aww:

I am so happy to be able to feature again I might as well ask for your suggestions :) Send me a link of a work which you would like to see featured (your own or from somebody else). I'll include your suggestion in a selection of some of my recent favourites.

Have a nice day :sun:

Update and Egypt

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 6, 2011, 5:33 AM




Aloha everybody,

I think nobody could have missed the daily news from Egypt. As it is, I've just been there... not in the middle of it... but we've seen the beginnings of the first demonstration day. At that time we where in the "Museum of Egypt" (which lies near the centre of the city) when we suddenly had to leave the building and were escorted by police. Our bus wasn't there and we had to take any bus and leave directly for our hotel. On our way we heard people chanting, saw human chains blocking streets, fully armed. It was scary... but that was all we saw. We left Cairo just one day later and had no problems on our way to Hurghada... but there the news become more and more urgent and we felt very insecure because even the German staff of the hotel did not get the same information we got from German television... I get the point of the people on the streets but when I learnt the day before yesterday that the museum and others had been plundered, mummies distroyed, statues thausends and thausends of years old knocked over, treasures from the tomp of Tutankhamun taken and/or distroyed... I cried... its just unbelievable for me how anybody can do this to this culture... which, as our travel guide Ali put it, doesn't belong to Egpyt but to the world...

Nevertheless *searching for words... I had a wonderful trip from Luxor to Assuan and back by ship... I will post some pictures of this trip in the next days... please keep in mind, that those do not reflect the mood of Egypt now... most of them are very peaceful shots... I hope you will enjoy them and put the news aside for one split second.

Take care everybody :rose:,
Benita

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 6, 2010, 12:48 PM




So :) Here I go again - maybe last entry for this year...

Aloha everybody :)

Maybe its the season or just because another year ends.. well, it doesn't really matter, does it? I want to say a few things and you are welcome to read and comment or just jump to the bottom and its feature :)
It was very turbulent year. With ups and downs... who doesn't know such times and the skill - or is it knowledge? - is, to stay true to yourself. First of all I want to thank some people for just what they are - my friends:
:bulletred: Tattoomaus78 for being an open-minded and outright person which puts so much heart and passion, in everything she does - I'll always be your lil' Küken *gg (which means chick but in a nice way :rofl:) :hug:
:bulletred: molli01 for showing me Austria and Venice and introducing me to TrueBlood, Glee and others ...and wonderful evenings while watching a show and conversations like "awwww cuuuuute", "ooh nooo" and "wtf o.o" ...and singing cartoon songs out of nowhere :giggle: Hopefully I'll see you in September ;) :hug:
:bulletred: virginval for his inspiration, patience, words, comments and so much more :hug:
:bulletred: Drezdany, arite and Jessi - thanks so much for the wonderful evenings with you... I am sorry that I'm not a quick learner with the piano as I had dreamed of but I enjoyed the evenings now even more :aww: :hug:
:bulletred: b1gag3 for your opinion and advice, your wonderful way to write - as I said, you need a Blog, man - WSFDZSW :lmao: good luck with the new job :hug:
:bulletred: Mihray for every single postcard (which are all on my fridge ;)) and your patience for every time I asked your address back XD :hug:

And I want to thank you all, my watchers, for your kind words, :+fav:s and every feature. Those are very much appreciated, even if I don't have the time to thank you all in time... so - Thank youuuuuuuuuuuu :hug:

So thats said... but "Das Leben ist kein Ponnyschlecken und auch kein Zuckerhof..." (Live is not always good to you, or something like this)... There are things someone don't want to think about because it hurts and you think your heart will break... I don't have lost someone, but lost her in a different way. I don't want to say to much or I may not be able to stop... but... when something bad happens and you feel sorry, please do not feel sorry for yourself... maybe it sounds strange to you, but to be there for a person who needs you is much more important than you feeling sorry. Be strong. If you truly love this person you have to stay strong for him or her - he or she does not deserve less. Thanks to all of you who know what I'm writing about and helped in many different ways :heart:

Now I feel a little better *gg And to catch the mood I'll give you my most hated video from youtube (in comparison) www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JF0l0… ...just some fun, requested by Tattoomaus78 What I love most is to make other people happy, so if it puts a smile on your face, its all I wanted ;)

Dear Kati,

Today is your birthday and I really, really would like to wish you a happy birthday ...but I can't... for one because I'm to far away... and second.. I don't know, if you would hear me... I so wish you could read this, I would like to call you, would like to tell you myself... I remember the times we met, we were on the phone or chatted in icq and keep it in my heart... I think of you every day and see the pictures you took of me and others here on deviantart and I miss you so much... I miss your advice, your humor... I miss our photo shootings and we had still so many ideas and we had always so much fun..I'm so glad now, that I visited you in April...it was tricky and I thought about canceling..well, as I said..I'm so glad that I could come to you...knowing now that it could have been the last time...
I miss you so much, dear... I miss how you gave me the feeling to be special... I would like to thank you for so many things...I hope, you know it ...somehow...

With all my heart...

15 July 2010 Lil' Update
Oh my goooooosh... Just saw Eclipse... I know, I know some or maybe the most of you will think, wt* but honestly: The movie was GREAT! The first one was right, the second movie sucked alot mostly because of the wolfs... but know, holy macaroni - that was fantastic... charming, romantic, adventures, stunning, funny.. what can you ask more of an entertaining movie?
*totally blown away

Aloha :sun:

As some of you might have noticed: summer is heeeeeeere :dance: And I can't wait to get some free time at last. 1 1/2 weeks left and then I'll be off for two weeks :iconeeeeeplz:
I'm planning to stay with some relatives near the North Sea and other than that... just relax... taking some pictures... swimming, barbecueing *ggg

...well *thinking... I'll upload some pictures soon. I've so many "in stock", which I want to share with you... some are already a couple of months old :o:o Hope you'll enjoy them nevertheless.

I think it didn't escape your attention that I had an awesome weekend with Tattoomaus78 two weeks ago. I tried to take some portraits of her and we are really happy with the results :aww:. Please tell me what you think, as I would like to improve my skills.

And now on to the fun part: featuuuuuuuuure of recent :+fav:s

PS.: Do you also receive 1500 pics in your inbox in just two days? :o The groups are a great idea, but sometimes I feel flooded :faint: So how should I ever be able to choose just a few... well… there’s absolutely no way :giggle:

Enjoy :blackrose:

Take your time and have a look - hopefully you'll find some gems :)

Now on to the news... I've got a new camera and I've overloaded your gallery already with a lot of close-ups *gg.
I'm going to visit my friend molli01 in September :w00t: Can't wait :glomp:
I'm trying out some new songs for youtube at the moment, but my new cam has no video mode.. so those videos will be most likely just slide shows...
I'm still trying to learn how to play the piano... Its rather hard at the moment as my little keyboard is broken and I'm annoying my little teacher (she's awesome by the way) because I haven't practiced. ...oh, well thats it for the moment *gg
Take care, everyone - hope you liked the feature :rose:
