Loki Noir- 'One More and I'm Free'
"For we are the true heroes of the working class. We are the magical unicorns. We are fairies and angels and made of pixie dust. For we all know the monetary compensation is not enough. We do it for the money, but that is not the true price we pay. It is our innocence that is bartered away with every blowjob. And your innocence is not a unique, once-in-a-lifetime thing like your virginity. It isn't there in one second and gone the next. It's not stolen or has been taken away. Your innocence is like a big, white bed sheet. At the start it is soft and fluffy and perfectly stainless white, yet with every time you sell your soul somebody rubs their dirty paws off on your bed sheet, staining it, soiling it with their filth. And gradually, it turns darker and greasier and no matter how often you wash or bleach it, it never returns to that fluffy, soft, perfectly stainless white state it once was. At the best, it can be off-white, tinted yellow or grey, it's muddy, but it's yours and you're stuck with your filthy bed sheet until the very end. And no money in the world could be justified compensation for this." Loki cleared his throat. "So gentlemen, respectfully, I applaud thee, you are the bravest men I know."

Photography NewsletterIf you've ever wondered how to get a Photography studio into your own house, for not a lot of money, then wonder no more! This article from BGR gives you some tips on how to get your own home studio up and running with a lighting kit from Amazon costing about $100. At the same time we're being spoiled this month by some great photography tips as Petapixel have been giving some advice on starting up your own photography business.
Have you heard of Stroboscopic Photography? Well, it's amazing. It's the term for something that a lot of us can (inadvertently) achieve with little effort or by accident, although admittedly the photographs shared in this
General Photography DD Round-Up: October 2015:iconcommunityrelations: Welcome!
This month the general photography CVs - Kaz-D, tiganusi and myself - set a total of 88 DDs across nearly every gallery we cover! Many thanks to everyone who's suggested to us, and as always we need more suggestions so don't be shy! Our guidelines are linked at the bottom of this article, and we tend to get a lot more People and Portraits suggestions than anything else so bonus points if you send us great pieces from the "weird" galleries. Self-suggestions are always welcome if you have a piece of your own that you think we should see!

I'm going to be away for the weekend, starting this evening and running through Tuesday, for Halloween shenanigans at Moonbeam13's house with some of the other CR team volunteers! I've known all three of the people coming (Lyricanna, DaPineapple and Nyx-Valentine) for seven plus years and somehow in that time have only ever met Lyricanna once and the other two never so this is pretty exciting and I will not be checking my message center regularly so if you're waiting four days for note replies I apologize in advance (#sorrynotsorry). I've packed my last pack of genuine Polaroid 600 film so expect pictures to follow at some point, maybe.
Also this is a fun way to keep your inspiration levels high and improve your mind-brains, so you should participate in it:
Now onto what is going to be one of my longest features ever, because holy hell there was some awesome stuff in the galleries this week! Without further ado, mainly because I'm jittery and wan

August Feature + Submission of the MonthHello dear members
With Summer officially over and the temperatures dropping with rain being a near constant friend, I reckon many of us will be spending more time indoors
(Though of course Down Under will be anticipating Spring time and young animals soon.)
This time around, we're a bit more on time *ahum* with sending out our August Feature and the Submission of the Month.
First though, the Submissions of the Month July:
Congratulations to ColinHuttonPhoto with

The female martyr:
This photo is a tribute to all the women that have been senselessly executed by a patriarchal society for a ridiculous reason – like Anne Boleyn for not bearing King Henry XIII a son.
This woman is delicate, yet proud.
She is helpless, since she can’t change her fate, she will be executed, but she isn’t hopeless.
They can break her body, but they can’t break her spirit.
She is a royal ruler in a more divine realm.
Defiant. Resilient. Immortal. Timeless.
Currently live in California, but have been at home all over the world, like NYC, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Nice (France) or Konstanz (Germany).|
I shoot with Leica, Canon, Olympus and Nikon (basically anything I can get my hands on ) Equipment used is always stated in my artist's comment.
