I'm getting tired of negative comments lately.

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 5, 2012, 8:37 AM
I'm thinking about to disable the comments on every deviation that I'm going to post in the future. It's not that the nice comments mean nothing to me {not at all}, but the rude/mean comments are just annoying. Some think it's that easy to take pictures of still life, but it isn't at all. Probably because they don't do photography (?) Also when I post another picture of the same thing (I see this more) it's getting the comment UNORIGINAL already or a note like 'there we have it again'. This sucks that I can't post what I want, well I can, but it feels different. This is probably not that good that I write this, because maybe I get even more mean comments now. :rofl: One question I ask myself: why? Btw I don't wan't to look silly, but I admit I'm very insecure...

Thanks for the people who do like my work and support me, that makes me less insecure :hug: But expect more disabled comments :/

Hey, It's been long time since that journal and I was wondering if it became better ..?
But if not, just ignore that comments. Somebody who writes such things does a) don't take pictures or b) is just jealous, but how I think, people who are, don't have to add comments. Apart from that, your pictures are all really great, and I don't care if one of them is like an other.
Just keep doing such great photos :)

Its people like them my dear that aren't even worth our time, sometimes people think because there is a computer screen between them and the people they're being rude to it doesn't make it rude or mean anymore.

Chin up =) your work is amazing and creative and adorable and you should be proud of it =)

Oh, that makes me angry! But darling, you should know: They are only jealous because you have got thousands of fans and your famous pics! Never ever listen to them! Hater cant enjoy their lives, so they must anything mean to people, who can be very proud of their work.

To all, who wrote mean comments: Hate yourself.

Whether some people like or not your work shouldn't be a reason to keep leaving negative comments.. I noticed here that most people that leaves unfriendly comments and opinions are not themselves creating much and also have very few followers mostly because they are not friendly..
Don't let those little trolls bother you, they are the miserable ones :)
Keep on doing what you do and enjoy yourself.. I know what you mean by being insecure, in last couple years I've had a series of unfortunate events in my life that somewhat changed me and also left me feeling insecure about myself.

Some people just don't understand what it takes to make a nice photo. You have to think of angles, lighting, positioning, etc. Then not only do you have to photograph the subject, but also take it to Photoshop. People can spend hours editing a photo, I know I do sometimes. Also, even if someone takes similar photos you can make different effects with it in Photoshop. Sometimes I even like to take the same exact photo, and do different effects on it in Photoshop to see how it looks. Anyways, I am extremely insecure myself. I have a bad anxiety disorder and everything. I used to get so upset I'd delete my photos. I got better with that because I have to remind myself why I took the photo and edited it in the first place. Photography makes me very happy, and it's something I highly enjoy doing. I want it to be a side job of mine one day. You make photos not only for other people to look at, but because you love it so much. It's so enjoyable to see what you've made when you're done with it, and not everyone is going to love it. It may not even be your best, or not too great. But you loved making it, and it makes a good amount of other people happy too.
Helpful criticism is always nice though. It can help you improve your skills. But, mean/nasty comments are not needed. There's nothing to be gained by telling something that you personally do not like their photo. It does not mean that it's bad, and it's to be expected with any photo that some people won't like it.
Sorry about the long rant. :P I just hope you don't get too upset, or think badly of your art. There are plenty of people who support you, and I personally think your photography is very nice. Your Photoshop actions are very helpful too. Well, have a good day! :}

Photography is not only a hard thing to do well, but it's also hard to edit them and get the looks that make it really pop. People are just trying to bring you down because they're jealous of your amazing talent!! I too have an incredibly low self esteem, so I totally understand where you're coming from. You and your images are amazing. Keep up the good work and Happy New Year!!

I don't get it, those people are not into photography perhaps, you know, when I try still life, it never works, I'm not good in the composition of you know, an atmosphere to go along with the things I put up. You need the right light and the right colours and the right place. But you almost always nail it down, and you do it admirably well. I like it very much and you know, you shouldn't let the negatives get beneath your skin, do what you feel you do well (and you do !). Photography has always been a collective name for a lot of directions and styles. Negative comments without substance are just so childish ...

Maybe it's because I'm pretty small time here but, I've been lucky enough to somehow evade most of those types of comments. That doesn't stop me from worrying though. I have such a hard time choosing between two or three very similar pictures and sometimes, I even submit them to deviations. I worry about boring or annoying people with such similar pictures and sometimes, I just close my eyes and delete one. Personally though, I think your pictures are cute and the lighting and color combinations are paired very well.

I agree with the others, don't disable the comments. If a comment is negative enough, delete it & move on. I would think that dA allows you to block such users? I guess my work isn't good enough or popular enough to draw in these kinds of jerks.

Your pictures are lovely! I don't see a reason why you should let them bother you. Maybe you should let them be the one to judge but can they take pictures like you? no. lol its funny. I believe I feel the same way as you. I too have a pretty cool camara that I love take pictures with and for some reason I LOVE all of them even if Its the same picture from different angle. So don't be down and go on to doing what you are doing!
