8 (who?)

Hi, I'm Jasmin! And who are You?

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 4, 2013, 8:01 AM

Hi, I'm Jasmin,

and I'm not very good at introductions, but seeing as I've got plenty of new watchers, I decided to try anyway :D

So, who am I? Well, in this so-called real life, I am a process engineer working for a plant engineering and construction company based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. I design plants that remove certain unwanted gases (like CO2 and H2S) from either natural gas or synthesis gas streams. I live with my boyfriend in a small town just outside of Frankfurt at the foot of the Taunus.

The contrast between countryside and this skyscraper-filled city is great; and not just for taking photos.

Though taking photos is of course my most prominent hobby - that and creating photomanipulations, which you can find on my art account kuschelirmel

[these are so NOT stock ;P]

These are just three of my personal faves from 2012. Looking at last year, I think it's the first time that I uploaded more stock than manips, which I'm sure is mostly due to the fact that preparing stock images for upload just doesn't take as long as doing a manip ^^ Plus I have a LOT of stuff that would be great stock still lying around. In 2012, I haven't even begun to clear out that backlog!

While I do get loads of stock from around here, I also travel quite a lot. Partly because of work and partly with my boyfriend. For example, this year, we went to Paris, France, in April/May to celebrate our anniversary. And in September, we were at the Côte d'Azur (Southern France) for our vacation:

For work, I visited Krakow, Poland, a few times this year, in March I was there for 2 weeks and had the weekend to take photos! Krakow is a beautiful city. It's so old and the inhabitants are so open and the whole city is thrumming with life and music!

Hmm, what else?

  • The first money I ever earned I got for doing a juggling performance with a few other kids from school at the mayor's New Year's reception. I can still juggle 4 balls - I think ;)
  • I grew up in a very small village on the Swabian Alb in Southern Germany. I studied process engineering in Karlsruhe and thus I come complete with dialekt (even though it's now a mix between schwäbisch and badisch) :D
  • I always joke that my English is better than my (standard) German
  • I don't like doing sports; the maximum I do is go swimming, but I've been slacking for weeks.
  • I love, love, love chocolate!
  • And I love good food in general (needless to say I ate and ate when we were on vacation in France...)
  • I'm not a thin person, but I guess you could deduce that from above :paranoid:
  • I used to be photomanip CV with my main account kuschelirmel. Twice.
  • I wish I had more time to upload stuff and comment on your wonderful art and write tutorials!
  • I'd also love to get around to doing more css journals and brushes.
  • If you want to make me happy, use my stock and show me what you've created! :love:

And who are you?

I'd love to get to know you - old and new watchers, visitors, whoever feels like saying hi!

Great to learn more from you!
I'm a student of art history and philosophy at the university of Bamberg. I live about 30 min. away from the town in a very small, very dozily village with a dog and some a bit unknown lodger like fat dormouses. I start art with doing portraits as child and teenager and came to photomanipulation at 1210. dA helps me a lot! I met so many great people here and getting more skilled by their advices. Now I try to go more to digital paint..Let's be hontest, I learn the basics of digital paint right now (after I find the courage and buyed a grafig tablett :blush:). I'm a very unpatient person, get fast angry, when things don't be like I want them, so learning painting is a bit of a horror for me. But I want to be more flexible in art (not so dependent on stock). Actually I should not be here, but doing uni stuff, because I make my bachelor in the next year and have a looot things to do. So nice to meet you and have a wonderful evening :huggle:

Hiya! Great to meet you! I remember all too well dA clashing with my studies :giggle: I hope you have a bit more self discipline than I did ;) Are you going to continue studying after you get the bachelor's degree, do a master? If so, are you going to specialize in something?

Meistens ;) Aber dieses Semester ist der Wurm drin. Je höher die Semesterzahl, desto mehr Arbeit.
Ich werde meinen Master in Kunstgeschichte machen. Ich mag Philosophie und ich mag auch Kulturgutsicherung (drittes Nebenfach), aber das eine ist mir zu akademisch und das andere zu praktisch. Irgendwie ist Kunstgeschichte für mich ein wenig was von beidem.

klingt gut! Dann wünsch ich Dir noch viel Erfolg und nicht allzu viel Ablenkung -- aber ein bischen Ablenkung muss schon sein ;)

Hallo Jasmin, flüchtig kennen wir uns ja schon eine Weile :)
Ich heiße Natasha bin aus der Nähe von Wasserburg, bin verheiratet, hab ein Kind mehrere Katzen und einen Hund, Ich spiele in vielen Kunstrichtungen rum. so richtig habe ich "mein Ding" noch nicht gefunden. Ich fotografiere, ich mache darkroom, photomanips, habe auch schon mit Künstlerbuntstiften gemalt, und mit Pastellkreiden. Und ich beade auch. Das kann man vielseitig nennen oder aber auch unentschieden ;)
Ich bin ein späteinsteiger da ich von meinem Dad immer kritisiert wurde was falsch war und ich so nicht wirklich an mich geglaubt habe (Er hat künstlerisch echt was drauf autodidakt und alles immer auf Anhieb pérfekt egal of Tusche, Kohle, Acryl, Öl, oder schnitzen... aber als Lehrer oder aufbauen eines möglichen Talents taugt er nicht die Bohne :XD: )
Wie ich meine ersten Fotos hier hochgeladen habe gemacht mit einem grottenschlechten Camcorder und dafür auch noch komplimente eingeheimst habe war ich total baff, aber dA hat für meinen Selbstwert über die Kunst echt Wunder gewirkt.
Auch wenn dann wie letztens so Kommentare (via Note da waren das meine Kunst bestenfalls mittelmäßig ist und nicht wert ist das jemand auch nur eine Postkarte kauft. (Autsch) )
Aber im großen ganzen sind die meisten echt unterstützend, auch wenn ich denke das meine Kunst und fotografie nie die Qualität mancher hier erreichen wird :)

Hi! Schön Dich kennenzulernen!
Mit Vätern ist das immer so eine Sache - aber prima, dass Du doch noch hier gelandet bist :heart: Und diese Kommentare von wegen niemand würd auch nur ne Postkarte kaufen, was soll's? Zwingt sie ja keiner. Und damit irgendwer den Kram kauft macht man es ja auch meist nicht.
