antoanette has always been one of my favorite people on DA. She has been kind and supportive for many years. I thought I would feature her. I have never met her yet I consider her a friend.

Can you believe that this has made my day. You have no idea how much this means to me especially in this particular period of my life. I send you hug and a kiss and warm thoughts. I am so blissfully grateful for our friendship <3

I'm so glad I made your day. You made my day years ago. I had not been on DA in a while and you "scolded" me for not letting me know I was back :) You have so many wonderful images and I'm always so happy to see you whenever you put something new on here. You've always been so sweet to me and I appreciate it :)

I hope your life is beautiful. Keep making beautiful images.

Well it is amazing how something so brief can make an impact on someone. Of course I scolded you cause I noticed you've been missing :)

I certainly appreciated you noticing and I certainly don't mind being scolded by someone who obviously cares.

By the way, I started a new group on here to try to filter out all the photographs that are in the Artistic Nude category but are really just pictures of naked people or straight-up porn. In other words, I've tried to create a space for good artistic nudes. There are still a lot of good photographers and models out there but they are getting drowned out by the crap. The group is called ArtisticNudesDDs. Here's the link: artisticnudedds.deviantart.com…. I'm very picky and I turn down a lot of stuff that's submitted. I try to follow a simple rule: It has to have a chance of getting a DD. Especially with DA's stupid new group limit, I can use some administrators. Would you consider it? I wouldn't ask anything of you except that if you see something good you make a request that it be added to the group.

On another point, I sent you some invitations for some of your images a while back. Would you consider accepting them? First of all, they are some of the best on DA and I would be proud to have them in the group. Second of all, I do an Artistic Nude of the Day feature and I would love to feature one, especially "Web of Lies." I really like the work you did with that photographer. My photographer friend Samantha and I have decided we're not doing straight-up nudes anymore unless we can produce something amazing. We're trying to explore sensuality and create a sense of mystery. I've tried to do that in some of my newer photos. I think you captured that with some of the work you did with justelse and Marinshe. You should work with them again if you get a chance. Those were some fantastic collaborations.

This is a long reply. I'm sorry about that. Thank you again for being so sweet :)

I will work with justelse(Reka) as soon as she gets in Croatia, since she spends time in Hungary most of the time. Well what you do is an interresting idea. And a necessary one I must say, considering circumstances on DA. I would be happy to take a look and suggest some work if I find some:) And thank you for your support, I am glad you like and appreciate my work so much :)

I'm so glad you'll get to work with her again. She's so creative and the two of you work well together. I'm afraid it may be too late for DA. They let the oversight slip for too long. A lot of great photographers have left because their art kept getting overshadowed by porn. I attempted to turn you into a moderator for the group and failed. I'll have to look it up on the help desk later. I'll let you know when you're in as a moderator. Thanks for agreeing to do that.

I also saw that you accepted some image invitations for the group. It looks like a few expired so I sent them again. I look forward to seeing more work from you soon. Have you ever been on the other side of the camera (you may have and I just missed it in the notes)? I bet you could do some good work. It would also be interesting if you used yourself as a model. It would be interesting to see how you see yourself as art.

Wow...well I never thought I was capable to be a photographer but perhaps I will give it a try. My oh my...it would be awesome if we could grab a coffee and chat face to face :aww:

That would be nice but I doubt I'll make it your way anytime soon and I'm in the U.S. I think you should definitely try being a photographer. I think excellent models often make excellent photographers. Just remember, most of what you shoot isn't all that good. That's true for great photographers, too. What you're hoping for is the one shot in 100 that is gold. If you decide to give it a try and you would like some assistance with post-processing, I'll send you my email in a note.

Agreed. She's sent me some really sweet communications over the years. It's strange to be fond of someone you've never met.
