Hello, friends!! I am planning a travel for a photography project to Peru and Bolivia - is anyone from or has anyone here been there before and could help me with some advice?
Thank you!! :heart:
Hey guys! It's been a long time since I last wrote a journal entry, but as I am more and more interested in film photography, I would like to take this chance to let you know that I am offering SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHY PRINTS (various dimensions) in exchange for PHOTOGRAPHIC FILMS (expired or new)/ FILM CAMERAS or VINTAGE LENSES (suitable for Canon). 
If you are interested, please write me a note here or an e-mail at feliciasimionphoto@gmail.com. I would be very grateful!!

Thank you,
Felicia
as the end of this year is approaching fast,
i am taking a moment to say Thank you for all the support you've given me throughout the years. 
i returned to deviantART, as i find here something that is difficult to find somewhere else... community. people still keen on giving comments rather than just press a button and then another one and then another one. 
so Thank you for your patience, your words, your push. yes, you push me to keep creating. even though i am small, you let me grow.
i dream that someday my photography will be of help to others. i wish to dedicate my work to everyone; not to critics, nor curators, nor art collectors. i wish my work to be humble and to bring a little bit of light to the soul. if i can do that, then the mission of my creation is being accomplished. 

Thank you.

cheers to a new beginning, that i hope will bring you the patience and the courage to be yourselves, the strength and the faith to pursue all that is good, all that is real, all that is Life.

Thank you a million times :)

doesn't compare to anywhere else online. One thing that deviantART has taught me is the sense of community. Please, don't stop growing, don't stop sharing a beautiful thought with the lovely people that still form this community. 

So thank you for being kind, honest, true. For giving me joy with your words, words that I need every moment of the day. I am small and frail, but you make me stronger. I cannot count the number of Notes and Comments that have marked my soul. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

The book was launched two weeks ago at the R K Burt Gallery in London. It's been a long journey, but with the help of two wonderful and talented friends, I have accomplished this dream. Hope that there will be more to come :heart:

Have you been involved with self-publishing? Does anyone have a story on this? :) It's only the beginning for me and I would like to know your thoughts!

Warm hugs,
Felicia

Think Photography is easy as a pie?

I'll tell you what. Photography is the sum of a good amount of virtues. It is talent and inspiration. Creativity and imagination. Commitment and devotion. Patience and attention. Skill and technique. Team spirit and concentration. Art knowledge and innovation. Also, it requires a whole lotta time. And the list may go further and further.

So before you start judging the others' works, think. Don't go throwing sour remarks. Try to be a little sweet and understanding. And if you don't have anything nice to say, just move on. Find what you like and let others do what they like.

To every photographer who recognizes the need of all above, and never stops learning in the pursuit of those virtues, don't forget to Always protect what is yours. And don't you let anyone underestimate you. For I'm sure you put your mind, and body, AND soul in every single photograph you take.

Thanks, deviantART, for a great opportunity!!
Two days ago I found out that I won the Teen Photo Grand Prize, with this photograph: The shape you're in by iNeedChemicalX. It felt and it still feels unbelievable, and I invite you to have a look at the other winning photos (which are truly beautiful!) here:

Sometimes, we should never wait for something to happen. It will come by itself and surprise us in the most wonderful way possible.
feliciasimionphotography.com/ a little click here, why thank you :aww:
















My birthday happened, but it's still here. Therefore, thank you for all your amazing wishes. I felt quite surprised to read so many! I knew why I could never quit dA. Stay young! :)




Well, I thought 18 would be a messed up age. But I guess I was so, so wrong. It seems that the more I grow, the more I get younger. And that is a heck of a good feeling.

Cheers to new dreams, new hopes and new adventures! Thank you for all your comforting words throughout the year. See you at 19! :)
