Below follows a rather long list of stuff that I highly recommend you read before you comment, download and use any of my work.
Technical and ethical information can also be found here.
Disclaimer regarding content in photography and artwork in general
I do not directly wish to promote any form of religious, racial, sexual or political ideology with my work. My art is mostly created with my personal views in thought, but that does not mean you are limited to follow my personal concept, and my personal concept alone of the posted photograph/manipulation.
My demons may very well be your angels, and vice versa.
Some of my images may be inspired by satanism, mythology, anti-christianity and other horrid things people may take a negative standing to... You have been warned.
All images are more or less experiments, and are to be viewed as such. I do not claim any of my artworks to be 100% completely finished in any way, they are always open to criticism and editing. Although I should note that I prefer expressive photographs that may not be 100% technically superior over the contrary.
Also keep in mind that as everyone evolve in a field of interest, older images may appear to be of inferior quality to the newer ones.
Regarding comments, criticism and similar stuff.
I do not generally thank people for adding any of my works to their favorites, don't get the impression that I'm not grateful for it, I am quite the contrary. I always see it quite positive that my artworks receive such acknowledgement.
Regarding my own comments, while some may sound harsh and negative, they too are on the contrary. I give as constructive criticism I can, and this is for you to evolve as an artist, there is nothing negative about it. If anyone should feel offended by my remarks, I do apologize for it is not my intention to do so.
Oh yes, kindly keep your own comments that fall under similarities with these below to yourself:
Any form of propaganda, whether it is political, sexual or religious. I do not look too kindly onto this... While I may be a silly pagan, I do not force my personal beliefs and hypotheses onto you and I wish to be treated the same.
Vulgar, generally mindless and unsuitable remarks. E.G. "Dat ass", "Nice tits" if the photograph has a model as motive. It's just silly and unrelated.
All forms of blatant verbal abuse against me or anyone in general. At least try to keep a civil tongue even if you cannot.
Technical and ethical information regarding all photographic submissions
All photographs follow these technical specifications:
72dpi (Prints will only be available per request)
sRGB colorspace. Individual monitor contrast and tones may vary, take this into thought before commenting about contrast and colors.
At least 20% size of the original RAW file (Aside from stock-images), sometimes smaller and sometimes larger depending on the picture.
They are always shot in .NEF, or any other similar camera RAW format.
Post-editing is made with Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4
All photographs follow these ethical principles:
All photographs that are not placed into my "Photomanipulation" folder is pretty much 100% as shot in terms of content. I only remove stuff that annoys me.
All photographs depicting humans are uploaded with their permission and credited if they have a DA account. Do look at their own works too.
Regarding "beauty" retouches and similar
I very rarely manipulate the anatomy of human subjects. I am strongly opposed to the modern use of "dollyfying" skin. This may or may not be all that positive to some, but that's how I do it. There is enough human sheep out there!
