Unknown Photos of 2005
DeviantART is one of the most popular online art sites. As dA grows each day, more and more new members register, which means more and more art is being submitted each day; with about 17,700,000 deviations to date. One of the most popular submission categories is photography. Within the Art Photography category, there are 12 subcategories, those containing even more subcategories. With all of these groups there are many photos that fall in between the cracks at this massive place we call DevianART. A selected party of 11 deviants and I have come together to show you photos that have gone fairly unnoticed from this passing year. These 11 categories range from Architecture to Fetish and show superb unknown works of 2005.

Apple iPod - New Models + iTunes 7
Well, where to begin. Today is the launch of a new series of things from Apple Computers. First off, iTunes 7 is released, featuring a new GUI, features, and some other nifty things you'll probably like.
As well as that, firmware updates are available on most (if not all iPods), AND, a new announcement from Apple:
The iPod Nano now comes in 5 different colours! (Black/Silver/Pink/Blue/Green). Also, not to mention the changes in look, they also offer up to 8GB in storage compacity. They look a bit different than the original, so be sure to check it out:
Next on the list, the iPod Shuffle, no more is the gum-stick design, it's now roughly the size of a dollar coin, and comes with an included USB dock, and is made out of an aluminum casing. Also will be (in the future, so the rumour is) coming in larger format sizes. Shipping in october is the new iPod Shuffle:

Death of A Legend
Most of us are familiar with the landmark sculptures and monuments that scatter the United States, depicting the US Marines raising the American flag on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, on Feb. 23, 1945. However, did you know it was actually an award-winning photograph?
Joe Rosenthal, the photographer behind the historical photo, has passed away earlier this week.

Pinhole Photography
It is a bittersweet feeling to be talking about this because this is how I first started the world of photography 4 years ago this past August. I arrived at photo class in my sophomore year in high school and the first lesson was pinhole cameras. To my surprise I could make my own camera and develop the prints in the darkroom with out even using a real camera, but one made out of an oatmeal container.
Basic Parts and Functions of a Pinhole Camera
1. Body- light tight bow which holds the light-sensitive photo paper
2. Lens (pinhole)- focuses rays of light from the subject to produce an image onto the photo paper
3. Aperture- the size of the lens opening
---->small- less light enters (long exposure time & sharper image)
---->large- more light enters (shorter exposure time & fuzzy image)
4. Shutter- device that controls when the light enters the lens
5. Focal length- the distance between the lens and the focal plane
---->longer- telescope effect (subject appears larger in

Take 30 Photos Per Second
The Boise, Idaho-based chipmaker has come up with an 8-megapixel silicon imager for compact cameras that will allow cameras to shoot 10 8-megapixel pictures a second or 30 2-megapixel shots a second. If camera makers adopt the chip, consumers will be able to capture those '60s-style photo montages made famous in "A Hard Day's Night.
The chip will also be capable of capturing video in the 720p format, which is the entry-level version of high definition.
Many current compact and even single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras do not provide this capability. Most cameras can take two to four shots a second at maximum resolution or 10 shots at lower resolution. Most also capture video at the 480-by-640 pixel resolution.
Over the past two years, however, digital cameras have been undergoing a quiet internal revolution. Traditionally, camera makers produced their own chips. The expense and time involved in developing these chips, however, has prompted them to turn to outfits like Texas Instruments, Nu

Faraway Tales by ekster Faraway Tales :iconekster:ekster 110 75


Closer to 21, and deviantART still thinks I'm 19.…
Do you think this could be a good place to choose books from? I'm not feeling like reading anything specific but really want to get reading again, last night I read the first chapter of HP :o
There was a hedgehog on my lawn the other day and it was in the sun but then it moved into the shadow so I couldn't take any extreme closeups like I wanted, a deranged little hedgehog's snout would have been nice.

Also felt like mentioning that I'm one pageview away from 25,000, first time I've cared even a little about pageviews since 2006 or so, that's four freaking years.

nah don't mind if you use my account, as long as you don't abuse my watchers (if I have any) or delete all my deviations XD. and fuck, I ticked that box? didn't mean to. can you eat what's rest of my wheat free bread in the fridge? needs to be eaten very soon and I'm too far away to do it myself. and it's too expensive to throw out.
yuppy64 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010
Yuuve got 15 watchers including me.
I'm just going to use your account to check the features of my noo group account.
I'm not good at eating things so they don't go off, I'll do my best.
