GetWatchers App Error

Fri Apr 28, 2017, 9:00 AM by Val-Aishlym:iconval-aishlym:

Hello fellow deviants,

The issue that members are starting to see when trying to make a new account has returned. This is because of an update to dA's website. It prevents new accounts from being made. The GetWatchers app is totally dependant on dA so when there is a small update, sometimes it throws the app completely off. I apologize that there is nothing else we can do for you. The devs have been made aware of the problem. In its stead, events will be made to compensate for the app's problems for those who wanted to use it. These events will be totally dependant on what you, the members, would like to see, however. In the coming few days, a poll will be released for members to vote on that will better hold a discussion on what you all would like to see now and in the future. Again, I apologize that you all have been inconvenienced by this issue.

Warm regards,

P.S. If there is any other issues plaguing you other than this new account one, please do not hesitate to tell us.

Seeking New Admins

Wed Nov 30, 2016, 12:51 PM by Val-Aishlym:iconval-aishlym:

Hello fellow deviants,

The GetWatchers team is currently looking to expand. If you'd like to upgrade your status among the dA community and join the largest group as an Admin, wait and look no farther. Joining our team of lovely staff is a good opportunity to get more involved with the community :dalove: and help others by promoting their art to a very large audience. You could also help with new projects that help bring members of the group together, and create fun opportunities for everyone to earn exposure and challenge their creativity.

Group Judges navigate on a regular basis through members submissions to find the best pieces for each category. These pieces are subject to vote by other administrators who can decline or approve. When a piece receives a sufficient number of positives votes, it is added to the gallery.

Some of the duties involved (depending of your free time) may include:

- Helping new members with their inquiries
- Participating in group initiatives by giving suggestions and ideas.
- Cleaning inappropriate artwork from the Favorites folders
- Moving misplaced artwork (from assigned category) into the correct folder
- Keeping harmony in the comment area (flag spam or inappropriate comments, etc.)
- Voting on submissions to the group's main gallery (selected by fellow contributors)*

Minimum requirements for contributor roles:

- To be able to help members you need good general knowledge of how #GetWatchers and DeviantArt work
- To be able to give your vote you must demonstrate good judgment of art beauty and quality
- You must have enough free time
- And finally, you must love art

If you would like join the GetWatchers team, please send your application via note. Include a brief statement about you and why you would like to participate in the group's mission. Finally, include two examples (links or thumbnails) of artwork that you feel is outstanding and two examples of artwork that wouldn't be appropriate (considering the group rules) for the galleries.

An important point to remember is that contributors participate on a voluntary basis and for the love of art (note: you may get bonus credits for the GetWatchers App) :heart:.

Warm Regards,

GetWatchers Team

Photography Interview: Bwaworga

Sun Sep 28, 2014, 12:50 AM

Hello all,

Welcome to an interview with the amazing photographer bwaworga, hopefully some of her words can help inspire you, as they did me :heart:

bwaworga is an outstanding portrait photographer based in Indonesia, most of you have likely stumbled upon some of the amazing work she has shared with our community. She is a bright and loving girl, with amazing skill.

1. When did you first start photography, and why?

I started probably around the end of 2009. It's funny actually, me and my family had plan to travel abroad and I was thinking "I have to take good pictures when we travel." Good picture = big camera =dslr, so that's the first time I bought my own camera, a canon 1000D. Of course if I want to get nice pictures I need to learn how to use it.. so I began to search on internet the camera setting, try to understand what ISO, speed and apperture are, and  I started to capture flowers and things in front of my house. Since then my interest and passion for photography keeps growing and growing and I just can't stop.

2. What are the most difficult challenges you have faced during your time as a photographer?

Time management & making connections.
Time management: I'm not a full time photographer, I only do photography on weekdays so I need to work extra hard to manage everything including my work, my photographer life, my family, my models, creative people I work with, and my clients.
Making connections: I live in a small city name Manado, it's far from the capital city Jakarta where all the fashion industry and basically everything is located. There are no model agencies here, no magazine companies, no brands. This is just a small town. Though it is a lovely town with beautiful nature, but for making connections to get more exposure on my works thankfully there is social media that can help me to grow.

3. What advice do you have for amateurs who are inspired by your amazing work? Any tips on how they can improve?

Practice and practice, and shoot what you love.

4. Do you have any projects, or news related to your work, that you'd like to share with the community?

Yes, I have some projects coming up. I have 3 company brands lookbook photoshoots, and 2 magazine editorial photoshoots coming up the next one or two weeks :) I'm pretty much pumped and excited about these projects.

5. What do you think is the most important thing when it comes to creating art?

The most important thing for me is to have fun, art is fun.

6. What camera and other tools do you usually use during your shoots? Do you use editing softwares? If so, which ones, and what kind of editing do you usually do?

I use a canon 5dmarkII and 3 lenses that I usually bring on photoshoots : canon 135mm f.2, 50mm f1.8 and 17-40mm f.4. I sometimes use speedlight but only if necessary because I always love natural light.

7. Do you have a picture from one of your first photos ever, so we can compare with how far you've grown since you began?

You can see it from my deviantart gallery :) I basically grow with this community :)

8. What is your favorite thing about photography? What have been your best experiences?

With photography I feel like I can feel I am totally alive, it is the way I can express myself and show the world who I really am.
