Photographer of the Week: MirageGourmand
MirageGourmand and mouth-watering food photography should, at least to me, always be mentioned in the same line.
Just look at those compositions, clearly full of little details and well thought-through placing.
It is with great honour, that I bestow the Photographer of the Week award to MirageGourmand .
And now go check out the rest of this feature, and then their gallery!
Photographer of the Week: PiecesOfAnsley
This week's Photographer of the Week is PiecesOfAnsley !
Her work is refreshingly different to traditional still-life photography. Setting her photographs somewhere between vibrant colours and pastel tones, strong compositions and fun objects and a clear love for detail.
It is certainly recommended to go see the rest of her gallery, because there is much more to see than what I could feature here. Go, peeps, NAO!
Congratulations, PiecesOfAnsley !

Artistle Features Vol. X: 'Deep in the meadow''Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, A moonbeam ray,
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when again it's morning, they'll wash away.
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.'
- Suzanne Collins, 'Deep in the meadow'
This is a guest feature written by mondscheinsonate instead of AlexanderPaupoff .
The reason for this is, that I recently read the Hunger Games trilogy and was so inspired by the books that I just had t
PE: Presenting Your Traditional Artworks, Part 1Traditional Art Week

How many times you have read or typed yourself such notes in artist’s comments, under traditional artworks?
