Browsing by Newest v26, +DDs By The Numbers

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 2, 2015, 11:28 AM

DDs So Far

I noticed this morning while setting some DDs that I'm one away from having set 300 DDs. That's... a lot. A lot less than some people who've been around for a while have set, but still, 300 seems like a big number. Got me to thinking about what I've DDed. So I grabbed the last 100 pieces I set and crunched some numbers. And made pie charts. :v

Chart Two by tiganusi

Evidently I DD People and Portraits over a third of the time - which is typical since it's the biggest gallery by a wide margin under my umbrella. Followed by darkroom about once a week on average, so again no shock. Y'all should suggest more so I can get those little wedges to be bigger next time I run numbers. A whopping 15% of my DDs are from Expressive Portraiture, making it the single biggest subcategory I feature from.

I know a lot of people assume that seniors, CVs, staff and other "prominent" users - plus people who pay for core memberships - get most DDs. Sounds legit as far as conspiracy theories go, until you see this breakdown of the last 100 people I've DDed:

Chart One by tiganusi

That's 59% regular users. This is literally the only multiple-choice-answer statistic that I ran that I got a majority result for. 63% of the people I DD have under 1000 watchers, 39%  have under 500 watchers, and 7% have under 100 watchers. So yeah, we don't only DD the really popular people. And 37% of the users I DDed hadn't ever had a DD before - if you include people who've had DDs but not for photography it jumps to 42%. And four out of seven of the senior members I've DDed haven't had a photography DD before.

Other useless stats: I've DDed people from 28 countries in the last 100 DDs I've given, with a disproportionately high number from Russia for some reason, and 3% of the DDs I looked at were given to the model for their contributions to the shot. In all three of those cases the photographer wasn't a member of DA but the model made the shot work just as much as the photographer did.

So there you have it, today's data analysis, brought to you by Microsoft Excel and way too much coffee. Now onto the art:

Photography Exposed: Humorous

Tue Sep 29, 2015, 7:52 AM
Photography Exposed is a series of articles brought to you by your General Photography Community Volunteers! Kaz-DMrs-Durden and tiganusi are going to be exposing the popular and the not so popular galleries within main Photography gallery here on DeviantArt. For this edition, I've chosen to focus on the much-maligned Photography > Humourous.

the amphibious john travolta by bryan-cuttance

What is it?

"Photographs with a primary purpose for humor; to make the viewer laugh. This includes satire, physical humor and funny situations."

Yeah, not image macros or photo-based comics, dammit. Also generally not images of funny signs. Some of the things you'll see a lot of here - and that we'd like to see more of! - look like these examples.

Darkroom Week

Ha Ha Bad Joke.

:smoking: Okay, so my sense of humor is wanting. Moving on: This week, thanks to the help of the people who made it all possible - Kaz-D, Mrs-Durden, Queen-Kitty, Aeirmidpearwood, Mrs-Freestar-Bul, kerrybush42, JillAuville, The-Egg, JenFruzz, RockstarVanity, plus all of the wonderful darkroom talents among you that we got to showcase through the week - we've got to discuss pretty much the whole spectrum of the Darkroom Gallery on DeviantArt. Many thanks to the contributors, many thanks to all of you who read and commented through the week, and I hope you learned something along the way! 

Have a story to wind everything down, in case you think Project Educate never gets real-world spillover: After my article on alt processes earlier this week, Queen-Kitty posted on Facebook that she was going to try lumen printing (because it's awesome duh) and then replied sadly that she didn't have tongs or a tray for her fixer. This morning I was cleaning my bathroom and found about three ounces of Ilford Rapid-Fix hiding behind a toilet brush. Now, when two darkroomers interact every day about photography, it's like a vortex of bad influence - so I was already stuck doing this earlier in the week after burning plastic with chlorine bleach in my bathroom, since she does it too and I can't let her have all the fun:

Mark286 by tiganusi

So, yeah, I had a couple shots of fixer and a closet full of gelatin-silver paper. Jump ahead a bit and this is happening:

-2 by tiganusi-1 by tiganusi

And, naturally, in a few minutes there are 20 prints drying all over my bathroom and I'm sending her a message saying " :nana: GOT TO IT FIRST" while ignoring texts from my husband, who has some sort of plague and is dying in the bedroom, asking me to go get him some Buckley's. So yeah, this week definitely entered meatspace. And it couldn't have done that without all of you. :heart:

This week's articles, in case you missed any:


Darkroom Week


Artist | Professional
I'm C "Mark" Perry, the picture-taking former Gallery Moderator, now Community Volunteer for Photography who proselytizes about pringles, pandas and polaroids. In meatspace I worked as a designer and staff photographer for several years, then swapped into marketing management; I still freelance, show and sell my work but I don't like to talk about it. I'm a once-upon-a-time lit kid who's had a poem/editorial published here and there. I paint too. P is not my favourite letter, but you'd never believe that based on this paragraph.

I was around the site, dAmn and IRC on a few other accounts on and off since before dinosaurs had feathers, most notably on the account `IBinsanity, where I probably left you with a very favourable first impression.

On the last forum I submitted I made no direct reference to any deviant and I was simply asking for help coping with trolls because simply blocking didn't being me peace. I feel like you did not read over the forum itself and assumed it was the same message as last time. Please stop blocking my forums or I am going to start sending a message that DeivantArt has no system of justice as a community. This is not a threat, this is just a victim trying to lament and you are holding him down.

The reason I locked that thread was because you linked to the piece in which you're calling out a specific user and asking for them to be banned for something that they won't get banned for under current policy. If you keep posting the threads, they'll keep being locked.

FAQ #914: How do I report someone who is abusing or harassing my friend?
YeroSenpai Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2015
They deserve it! DeviantArt should do something about them! You should be doing something about them not me!
