Why I changed my username

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 9, 2015, 6:49 AM

Hello, everyone. 

I have been thinking about taking this step for such a long time. I wanted to change my username, because the old "dragonfly-oli" is so odd and childish. And you all said that you could find me better when you type "dragonfly-oli" into your browsing bar. But then I thought.. If they enter "dragonfly-oli", they will be redirected to my new page, and it does not matter, since dA is linking everything. 
I wanted to change my name, since I want to be more mature. I am not the youngster amateur photographer that I was once, and I want to show that my photography has a name.
So don't worry, I am still there, but with a new name. :)
I hope you don't mind.

Lots of love,
Olivia :hug:

Chinchillas or Degus?

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 25, 2015, 11:55 AM

Hello, everyone! :)
I want to get a new animal.. And I am stuck in the decision whether to buy a Chinchilla family or a Degu family..



Do you have these animals?

I am tending to Degus since they are dayactive, but Chinchillas are much cuter..

I'd love to hear from you! Thank you! :hug:

Once I wanted to become a CV.

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 3, 2015, 4:06 AM

Years ago, I suggested tons of deviations as Daily Deviations, since I thought they all deserve it! And I still do if I find a lovely piece.

When I was 18, I also wanted to become a Community Volunteer and help choosing the Daily Deviations. It was my dream here on deviantART. But I did not know whether I had the time to do the job properly, so I decided to leave it for a year. When my dad died in 2013, and my school ended, I was working hard and trying to get over it.. And therefore I totally forgot about the CV.. And the application I already had saved on my computer.

Now that I am 21, and becoming a registered nurse in two years, I don't have the time to be a CV anymore since I cannot be online on a daily basis.

Sad story, I know. But I wanted to share this with you. Why don't you consider applying as a CV? And if not, then suggest DDs as much as possible! The people getting some will be extremely happy! :aww:

Why don't you show me people who deserve DDs? I will suggest them then.

Have a nice day. :hug:

I was wondering...

Journal Entry: Fri May 22, 2015, 10:07 AM

What makes me special among all those precious photographers out there?

To me, it seems like there is no special thing about me. I think I am just a normal girl wanting to show you the world the way I see it.

I read comments like "once again I see the typical Olivia-bokeh, lovely!" but WHAT IS the typical Olivia-bokeh?

Why do you like my pictures? Could you tell me?

Thank you. :hug:

Awesome photography!

Massive community project: What makes you special?

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 28, 2015, 9:42 AM

Hi guys! 
This journal deals about YOU, yes you! You, a small part of the deviantART community, yet so shining and unique.
We all, we are the ones who make deviantART what it is today. All the shining artists creating diamonds and droplets of life and sharing them in a loving and caring community..

I want to unite all of these lovely artists. Please share what makes you special. Why do you love your kind of art? What art do you do? What is your passion? Share your personal story. Introduce yourself! I will start so that you can see what I mean..

I am Olivia, 21 years old and I am from Germany.
When I got a little digicam in March 2010, I never thought I would want to continue photography, but when my granddad died in April 2010, I realized that life is too short to let it simply happen, but also too long to remember every part of it. A photograph would capture the feelings, the moments, the thoughts behind these moments. And that was when I started photography.
I worked hard in summer 2010 to achieve my biggest goal: I bought my first DSLR. It is the only DSLR I ever had, and it still works great, although it looks like an old grandma now (many scratches): my Nikon D5000.
Of course every artist has to find his kind of art for himself, and so I started spreading my interests. First I totally was into Portraits, but I quickly knew this would not be the sector of photography of my preference. Then I tried out landscape photography. It was great to use the 18mms of my kit lens, but I did not know anything about composition, so my landscapes looked quite dull. Additionally, I never found any great locations. 
Then, in February 2011, I found my first ladybug. I always liked them, since I could put them on my finger and help them fly away. Additionally they were tickling so nicely. So I thought: You tried so many sections of photography, why don't you try the macro section? So I tried to catch the ladybug in the best macro-way possible. Of course kit lenses cannot achieve a great magnification, but then I realized the bokeh, and fell in love with it immediately. I still love bokeh and try to always use it in my images. 
So what makes me special? I think it is my passion, my will to create a new world. I want to make people see what they normally cannot see. The little things in life people oversee or things people do not even notice because they only look into the air, where the birds fly. Or look into their phones, because they got a new facebook notification. I want to create my own little fairytale, and I invite every watcher of my pictures to dream with me. I want to make a little flower a special guest in my fairytales. I want to show the beauty of nature. And I want you all to realize the beauty in nowadays world.

I hope you will enter my challenge. Be positive, and praise your positive traits!

New Year's Resolutions and greetings

Wed Dec 31, 2014, 2:20 AM

Hi, everybody!

I wanted to share something with you. 
2014 has been a turbulent year. I changed my job from being a trainee in a hospital towards doing an apprenticeship as an examined nurse. 
I moved together with my boyfriend in February, and we celebrated our first year together in June.
This is only an extraction of what happened this year.

Therefore I made some New Years resolutions which include
  • Stick with my A-grades in my apprenticeship
  • Do more photography. I feel like I am stuck with my photos, since I do no have any time to go out anymore.
  • Be more active on deviantART. It seems as if I lost many watchers, because people do not look at my deviations anymore and I receive much less feedback than it was at the beginning of 2014.
  • Get healthier. I want to start working out in 2015 and eat healthier.

What are your resolutions?

i wish you a happy new year and how you say in German: Guten Rutsch!

Breathtaking-photos is searching for contributors!

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 18, 2014, 2:45 AM

Hi, everyone. I do write this (again) because my group really needs new contributors.
You do not have to be a great photographer for this, you just need to submit art you love into this group :aww:

This is all!
You will get features in the group for that. :hug:

The only thing you have to care about is that you have to be active once a month, which means when you are not active for a month, I will make you a normal member again. Simple, isn't it? :)

Just say you want to try it and I will invite you. ;)

Ask me anything in the comments!

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 11, 2014, 12:48 PM

NO matter if it is about general photography, my photography or just smalltalking.
I want to talk to you! (and practice my English :eyes: )


Journal Entry: Wed Sep 24, 2014, 9:06 AM

Hi, everyone. 
I wrote this journal to ask you about your opinions..
Since I got many hater messages like 
Your work is not real!

You are the ugliest photographer in the world

or indirect messages like

Do you also hate it when people receive  DDs over and over again
just after I got a DD...

Well, I am tired of it. I am tired of all the people who tell me I am not worth it. People who say I am not worth the amount of fans I have. I am not worth all the Daily Deviation features I have. People who say I am just a little girl who does not know anything about life. A little girl in her little paradise.

That's not true at all. I am a woman who really knows how to handle life. I know what it means to lose someone close to myself. I know how to communicate with people, and I never want to sound rude.

But. People want to evaluate me although they do not know me. I am working hard for every picture I take. I plan the composition and observe the place I take pictures of before I take any pictures. I edit them in many ways, let my view rest for a day and upload my images a day later. And I try to handle my watchers, fans and friends in a friendly manner. 
But what really makes me angry is to see that friends, people I thought I could communicate with, become jealous of whatever (I still do not understand why people may be jealous of me....) and start spreading hater messages .

I will continue, no matter what all the haters may say, and I will try to be as active as possible (which may not be that easy since I have my apprenticeship now).

And I promise that I appreciate everyone of my watchers. Your lovely comments make my day, and I am so sorry that I do not have the time to answer them. But I read them, and I smile every time!

Thank you for still being my watcher. I love you :heart:

My first week in my apprenticeship + features!

On September, 1st, I began my apprenticeship as a licensed practical nurse. Standing up at 6AM after vacations in which I slept until noon is my daily routine now. The great thing about standing up early is that my boyfriend also has to do that, since he does the apprenticeship with me! :aww:

The first week dealt with many things, such as rights and duties, and organizing stuff. But we also began with the lessons! To give you a little insight, we learned how exactly the skin looks like (with words like Epidermis, Dermis and Subcutis).

To sum it up: I am happy about it and hope next week will be as awesome as the first!

On to the feature: There you go ;)
