I just realised my last entry was from 2009.
That's a long time ago.
I go through phases where I post a lot of stock, and then go through some dry spells. This happens with all my hobbies - writing, knitting, basically everything I've ever been really interested. Unlike those, though, photography is something I've been doing since I was a kid, so while it's been awhile since I've posted anything, I still feel like I've been doing it forever.
Part of the reason I go on hiatus is just lack of inspiration or opportunity - it always comes back eventually. Another part is that I find if I focus too hard on any one particular thing, I get sick of it. So these breaks are a good thing
I finally checked on my stock page after a long, long time today - and it reminded me why I love photography. I got to go through all the notes and comments left showing me where my stock had been used, and it was awesome. I love that I got to be involved in all those different things and I'm honoured that people chose my stock to use.
I hope I'll get some more stuff up on here soon - until then, thank you for using my stock!GuidelinesAnyone
is free to use my stock, provided they follow my guidelines.
If you would like to see my own original artwork (which may include some of the stock on this site), I can be found at
. PLEASE NOTE
Well, it's pretty much the same as most stock sites, but if you can't remember, let me refresh them for you.
Using my stock on DeviantArt is completely acceptable.
Using my stock on any other site is also completely acceptable.
You may use my stock in school projects, website banners, etc. so long as you send me a note or leave a comment and upload your artwork to a site so I can see it.
Any usage of my stock must be credited to this account, Pink-Stock, in your Artist's Comments,
by way of linking to my account or putting my avatar up. The words "Pink-Stock" MUST appear somewhere in your Artist's Comments, whether it's like this ~pink-stock
or like this
. Please see the following if you don't know how to do this: FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?
let me know (preferably in a note - but I won't butcher you if you leave a comment) when you use my stock. This is a very simple thing. Plus, by letting me know, you have the chance to be featured in my journal and added to my favorite list - a GOOD thing!
Using my stock for prints or other profitable works is allowed, but you MUST credit me and let me know! ANY violation of this will be reported.
Do not use my stock in inappropriate (ie. pornographic, racist, etc.) ways. Use it appropriately, or don't use it at all.Any violation of my guidelines can and most likely will result in you being reported.
Being reported for violating my guidelines can result in a ban or suspension. Please don't force me to do this - I don't want to be the cause of anyone's ban or suspension, but I will if I have to.
Requests are permitted - however I cannot promise that I will fill every request. All requests must be submitted by NOTE or EMAIL. Comments will be ignored.
Not a guideline, but a general note - most of these pictures have not been edited (save perhaps being cropped) at all. Brightness, contrast, saturation, etc. have not been changed. These pictures are in their absolute raw form. That being said, don't complain to me because the colours don't pop out enough. You can edit that in basic photo-editing programs.
Comments and critique is encouraged! Thank you for using my stock!
