DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 8, 2015, 1:25 AM

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
7 years 10 months and 5 days. Wow, that long hmmm? Seems like eternity when I finished high school and went to university, had plenty of time for both my photography (which sucked at the time... oh, wait, it still does) and browsing dA.

What does your username mean?
When I was about 11-14 years old I went to summer camp every year and one of the camp leaders sang various songs at the campfire every evening, mostly balads and I loved it. One of the songs was the Song of Nimrodel from Tolkien's Lord of the Ring . I don't know why but the kids and leaders of the camp started using the name Nimrodel as my nickname. Who would have guessed that I'd be given a nickname after beautiful elven girl, I still don't understand it. Then when I was setting up account somewhere I wanted to use it as my username but it was already taken. So I combined names Nimrodel and Amroth (another name from that song) and, voila, there is Amrodel.

Describe yourself in three words.
Shy, not selfconfident, loner.

Are you left or right handed?
Right.

What was your first deviation?
Window to Saxon Switzerland by amrodel
Not a bad start I think, there are much worse in my gallery... hmmm... it reminds me that I wanted to clean up my gallery little bit...

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Photography.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Drawing.

What was your first favourite?
As the very first ones have probably been deleted, here is the first one that is still accessible:
Enjoying the sunset by woxys
This one was a gift for my nameday from my friend Woxys.

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
As a wannabe photographer, it is no big suprise that I fave photos the most.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Everyone here is special in some way...

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I am not really so keen on meeting new people in person.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Yes, I almost started dating someone I met on dA

What are your preferred tools to create art?
My camera, tripod and all the little gear pieces and gadgets (we have a lovely word for this little stuff in Czech: "serepetičky", but it translates as "crap" in English and it just doesn't sound right)

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Anywhere in nature where are no people and where is no noise and I can hear only the sounds of singing birds, murmur of the wind and such

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Probably browsing through my photos from the oldest to the new ones and seeing slight improvement here and there.

News, Feature

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 5, 2013, 5:01 AM
 Hi,

as I have nothing to do these days, I thought I would write another journal. I am currently looking for a full-time job. I have been looking for it for five months now and I am thinking about making a list with most creative/stupid reasons why the potentional employer cannot employ me. On the top of the list would be "you don't use any make-up so that's why you won't be doing accounting for a company that produces cosmetics", the second one is that "you know too many foreign languages for this job" and right after that "even though you applied for a job in accounting, we cannot employ you because you have no experience in controlling". Screw them...

I uploaded some photos from my latest visit to the zoo to my photoblog.
I also started a facebook page with my photos: MoNa's Photography fb page , feel free to like it.
I continuously upload photos to these two websites that specializes in prints: Redbubble and Prints4Me

Also, as there are currently some sales on dA, I would like to let you know that are very nice photos in my gallery dA Prints. Here are some examples of photos that are available as prints.

Black-Backed Jackal by amrodel Caracal Cub by amrodel Thirsty Sumatran Tiger by amrodel
Little Caracal VI by amrodel Bat-Eared Fox IV by amrodel Daydreaming by amrodel

If you still don't have a calender for the next year, you might want to know that I will be creating one or two, with high quality photos. First one will definitely be with photos of animals, the second one might be with landscape/flower photos.

And finally, so this journal is not only about me, here is feature of inspired art.

Some news...

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 8, 2013, 8:22 AM
Hi,

I just wanted to let you know that there are two new post on my photoblog. One is about animal photos from Zoo Plzen and the other one is about autumn photos. To read the posts, just follow one of these two links: Zoo Plzen and Autumn Photos .
Update: I uploaded some more photos: Autumn Photos II

Also I have some news for facebook users out there: since yesterday, I am also on facebook... yeah, me, the fb hater... what can I do. Anyway, just click this link to get there.

Now something not related to photography... In the middle of season ten (out of ten) of sci-fi series Stargate, I finally decided who is my favourite character. This really sucks as I can't enjoy watching epizodes with this character any more, just because it is over... I really should have decided earlier...
Does this happened to you too? What series and what character?

This journal will be all about black, white and all shades of grey between them.

First of all, I would like to announce that there are new photos on my blog and that they are all... suprisingly... black and white. I know it is quite unusual for me but I would love to know what you think about it. To visit my blog, just as always, click here and you will be redirected.

/*warning: rants on random topics

I am getting more and more tired of dA... I hate how you need to post a photo of something super cute to get least some feedback and then the feedback is all about how the subject of the photo is cute and it is not about the photo itself... I am kinda sick of it... No chances for improvement here...

I hate the feeling that I might be dragged into any kind of scheming. What I hate even more is being dragged into scheming that isn't about me....

I hate the feeling when others act like I am not able of making my own opinion...

I hate waiting for a new issue of my favourite magazine that should have been in my mailbox last week...

I hate the emptiness of the freezer in these hot days...

Floods in Prague

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 3, 2013, 9:59 AM

Floods in Prague



It has been raining non-stop for last two weeks and now there are floods in Bohemia, which is part of the Czech Republic. It looks like it won't be as bad as it was almost eleven years ago, when the historical centre of the Prague was flooded, as well as the lower part of the Prague Zoo and other areas. Now the volume of water running through the Vltava River is at about two thirds of the volume in year 2002 and it is expected to culminate tommorow morning. The floods caused great damages to Prague Zoo. Fortunately, all the animals had already been evacuated before the water spilt over natural barriers that protected the zoo from floods...

It was still raining heavily today but I decided to take some photos of the Vltava River and its surroundings. To see them, just follow this link: Floods in Prague.

Here are some official photos from Prague Zoo: Zoo Praha on Facebook - Photogallery I really recommend you to go see this gallery.

News, Features, Canon ZOOM *UPDATE*

Journal Entry: Tue May 28, 2013, 3:37 AM
Hi,

I know it has been a long time since my last journal. So, what have changed since then? First of all, I am almost done with my studies (finally, I started to hate it and I look forward to getting a job). I know that would mean less free time but at least I would be getting paid. Also, my injured hand is fine now and this means that taking photos is no longer painful for me :w00t:

I had my nameday last week and so this weekend we had a small celebration together with my mum (her name is the same as mine... or is it otherwise, that my name is the same as hers? :D ). I wanted to take some photos of the food too because it always looks so delicious, but both the steak tartare and the grilled beef was soooo delicious (and even this word can't express enough how it was good) that it was gone in a moment. I especially loved the steak tartare. There are several ways how to make it, probably the most famous is the french style, but I like much more how we make it here in the Czech Republic. We only use raw mean (of course :D, it wouldn't be a steak tartare without it, would it?), onions, raw egg yolk and not much of a seasonings.

I also wrote two new post at my photoblog. The theme of the first one is Animals in Prague Zoo, there are many photos that I didn't post here on deviantART and some additional informtion about these photos. To read this post, follow this link: Spring in Prague Zoo.

In the other post, there are macro photos. As I mentioned above, we had a celebration and we both got a lots of flowers and for me it was a great opportunity to take some detailed photos. Again, just follow this link: Flowers in Detail.

*Update*


There was an event called Canon ZOOM and it tooke place in Prague Zoo. I went there and took some photos, to see them, suprisingly, follow this link: Canon ZOOM 2013 - Prague Zoo.

Skiing in France - Photos, Features

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 26, 2013, 3:09 AM

Skiing in France


I returned from my holidays last sunday. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed it a lot. We were skiing during the whole last week. The day before we were leaving we went to a restaurant where we had raclette. I am not really fan of cheese but this one was soooo good :)

For those who don't know what is raclette:
"...Raclette is also a dish indigenous to parts of Switzerland. The Raclette cheese round is heated, either in front of a fire or by a special machine, then scraped onto diners' plates; the term raclette derives from the French word racler, meaning "to scrape," a reference to the fact that the melted cheese must be scraped from the unmelted part of the cheese onto the plate.

Traditionally the melting happens or happened in front of an open fire with the big piece of cheese facing the heat. One then regularly scrapes off the melting side. It is accompanied by small firm potatoes (Bintje, Charlotte or Raclette varieties), gherkins, pickled onions, and dried meat, such as jambon cru/cuit and viande des Grisons..."
(From Wikipedia, Raclette )

As the stay in France was fantastic, the journey home was hell. Not only half of the bus was as drunk as a lord and they were so loud that I couldn't hear what I said. As if it wasn't bad enough, one of them stepped on my arm and bruised it a lot so I had to go to the hospital when we finally arrived to Prague. Fortunately, my bone wasn't broken but the muscle was damaged and it will take some time to heal properly. One of the bad things about this is that I was really carefull not to hurt myself while skiing and then in the bus on my way home I get hurt by some ignorant idiots. Also, when they hurt time, their main concern was where is their plastic glass so they can pour themselves more alcohol. Other downside of this is that I can't use my hurt hand (my left hand) properly without analgesics. Analgesics are good that they relief from pain but drugs are drugs and I am not happy that I am taking it every day. Holding anything in my hand, using tools, even typing, it all hurts. And holding my camera hurts too :cry:

Premium Account Again, Disgusted, Features

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 22, 2013, 7:17 AM

Czech presidential election, 2013


There are only few days left before we will know our new president. But I am disgusted by all the news articles full of dirt and shits (sorry for these words) being thrown at the oponent... "candidate nr. 1 is a drunk" and "candidate nr. 2's wife's father is a nazi" "candidate nr. 1 is a bumpkin" "candidate nr. 2 is senile" "candidate nr. 1 is fat" "candidate nr. 2 has a speech defect" ... omg, who cares? I am so tired of it. I can't even open newspapers without these type of articles jumping out of every page. Then there is another type of election-themed articles: ... celebrity "a" votes for "candidate nr. 1" celebrity "b" votes for "candidate nr. 2" celebrity "c" votes for "candidate nr. 2" ... again, who cares? It's like people need some so called celebrity to tell them who to vote for. I am so looking forward when this is over. I know who I will vote for and I know this since the first round, although I was choosing my candidate with method of lesser evil. I am also wondering, and it may sound arrogant, but... how is it possible that there is so much stupid people who can't use the squashy pink thing in their head properly. It just makes me sad...

But enough ranting.

I bought dA premium account recently so I can enjoy many premium features again :) :w00t:

Interesting articles about photography:


Today I was browsing photography-related pages and I found several interesting articles.

Although I didn't read this article before the New Year, I made some resolutions that are the same like those mentioned in this article:
10 Top Inspiring New Year's Resolutions for Photographers

Then here is another article about very current topic, which I find very sad. In the article there are mostly basic advices but I found some excerpts interesting.

Nat Geo Contest Update:
They finally posted resulst of their Zoo Prague Photography Contest. Here is link to the results. The photos are sorted in ascending order (first photo is the winner, then is second place...) My photo is nr. 6. Well, I hoped for better result, but on the other hand, I won the best price :) One year ticket to Prague Zoo, I find this price most useful for me.
The first place won two bikes, but I don't really like cycling and also it is hard to take photos when you need to worry where you left your bike or to carry it to some harder accessible places where you can take nice photos.
The second price was XBOX Kinnect and I am already spending too much time in front of the computer screen and it would prevent me from taking more photos.
Then there was NatGeo magazine subscribtion for 3.-5. place. That would be nice but not really that useful.
And the finally, for 6.-10. place won one year ticket to Prague Zoo. If I didn't won it, I would buy it anyway, so this saved me about 18EUR (or 23USD).

Art-thieves:
There is a fb page, that repost other's people photos without any permission instead of sharing a link to the original photos. The people there are pretty ignorant and believe that they can use whatever they find on the internet. I also tried to reason with them but to no avail. There were no my photos on this page but I found photos of my friends there, all reposted without permission and even some photos were cropped so the signature was removed from the photo.
Recently, I was accused of stealing my own photo just because someone reposted it on their blog. From now on, I would like to prevent it so I decided to upload photos with even smaller resolution and I will also move my signature to the center. I am also thinking about signing my photos with my real name, not only the nickname I use here on deviantart.

Other updates:
A week ago I finally decided to have my camera cleaned, because there were some spots on every photo. I was putting it off and off because it is hard for me not to have my camera round, what if there was something nice to take photo of. Just as I expected, the moment I left the camera at the shop where they will clean it for me, it started snowing and everything was white and there were so many things to take photo of.

But not all news should be negative, so here is a positive one: Recently, Lintu47 has asked me to write a small article about fireworks photography. Then she wrote a journal called "Thoughts about Photography", where she used my text, among others. You can find it here .

Features:
I don't want my journal to be only a boring text and therefore I present some photos from my favourites.

Hello,

I entered a photo competition for the best photo from Prague Zoo. The winner photo will be used as cover for czech version of The National Geographic magazine.

This is my entry: Lion Face by amrodel

There are two rounds, the first one is public voting, basically it is popularity contest, the second one, the panel of photographers will decide which photo is the winning one. I would really like to make it to the second round and this is where you could help me.

UPDATE: It's not looking very good for me, I browsed through the photos randomly and I counted at least 18 photos with more votes, that's really bad :( :cry:  Please, those who haven't voted yet, find one minute of your precious time and vote for me here: zoo.national-geographic.cz/gal… Every vote is very important, now I am out of top 20 but very very close, every vote from you can get me to the second round. Please vote.


If you could go and visit this link
zoo.national-geographic.cz/gal…
and then click on Facebook icon "I like it"/"To se mi lÝbÝ" at the bottom of the page I would be very gratefull. It is necessary that you are logged in at Facebook, unfortunately...



As a reward for those who will vote for my photo, I will feature some of their deviations, but please let me know you voted.
