Thank you to everyone who voted in the previous poll about the next blog article. It was close but the winner is 5 Super Easy Ways To Get the Most From Your Room Light with twelve votes.

You can read the article on the link shown below.


If you´re not one of those few fortunate people who has its own photo studio or if you don´t have access to some for rent for a low price you probably need to solve the same question as I do: "How to get interesting light with available light sources?" The question becomes even harder during the cold autumn and winter months because it´s not so easy to take your models outside and let them suffer in cold :)

Over the years of doing photography I´ve discovered different light settings which you can get in your room for free or very low price. In this article I´d like to share them with you.

Recently I´ve started to reading the ebook "31 Days to Build a Better Blog" by Darren Rowse to improve my blog Pelleron-Art. In the book there are 31 tasks which should improve your blog content, design etc.

First three tasks were great - you should write an elevator pitch for your blog, write list post and promote your blog. I did them without any problem but now I´m stuck on the task 4 - compare your blog to famous blogs in your niché.

During last two weeks I visited so many blogs but I didn´t find some similar to mine. So I wanted to ask you - if you know some blogs like mine would you be so nice and send me the link please?

Confession of Toxic Generation

Yesterday my photomanipulation "Confession of Toxic Generation" was featured as Daily Deviation. I can´t say how happy I am. Thank you very much to phoenixleo for suggestion and to PurpelBlur for featuring!


" Confession of Toxic Generation by pelleron is a work, that puts the current generation to think about the technological consumption that will inevitably lead to a dystopian world and the effect it will have on the future generation. Sad yet beautiful in a different sense with dark, polluted environment, this piece is blended very well, and her tutorial on this is fantastic! Be sure to check her gallery! " -phoenixleo (Suggested by phoenixleo and Featured by PurpelBlur)



She Just Hates Flying Monkies

If you´re interested you can take a look at my first DD.

Accompanied by a story, She Just Hates Flying Monkies by pelleron is fun, it's imaginative and the title is made of win. (Suggested by BlakkReign and Featured by IreneLangholm)
