I have a quest to capture Minecraft; its beauty, wonderment and creativity. This are but a few, of my many to come shots of the world we call Minecraft.

I hope you will enjoy my quest to capture -- it will be quite an adventure!

I love how using Chunky lets me design the feeling of an image. I can make it do practially everything I want. It gives me so much creative freedom -- it's a photographer's dream.

Currently working on another image of Lapiz Point. This one is really cool. I've been learning a ton while making it. I've made probably 10 test renders of it so far, to make sure I'm using the right settings. Wish me luck!

Hello, my name is Declan, or RIVANE in Minecraft.


Contact me through photographerofminecraft@gmail.com if you feel using a deviantART note or comment is not an option for you (or if you'd rather not have to make a deviantART account just to contact me.).


I am an amateur photographer who is applying his photography and photo editing skills to capture Minecraft. I enjoy finding various builds and getting to know their creator(s) if I can. If you have anything in Minecraft that you'd like me to document, contact me and let me know -- I might just have some free time!


In case you're wondering what I do, I'll explain. I have this urge to capture whatever is awesome or beautiful in Minecraft. Whether that means it's something someone built or a beautiful natural scene, doesn't matter, so long as it's exceptional in some way, I'll capture and share it.

You may come to realize that I document a lot of Minecraft builds, most of which I have had no part in building. One role I like to play is the 'documentary photographer'. I feel a need to document things in Minecraft because, sadly, they do not always last. Sometimes servers shutdown, or things get destroyed. I don't want people's work to be completely lost, so I do what I can to preserve their efforts. There's also just a lot of amazing stuff out there that I just have to share.

I aim to capture a build and then present it in an artistic (Usually photographic) way, while still retaining high-detail of the build. I am constantly evolving and adapting my techniques to improve the end result. Whenever possible, I credit the builder and the server on which the build was created. I also don't hold back, all my images are downloadable and modifiable, if you see a use for them, you're welcome to them! Just please be sure to credited me, (MinecraftPhotography) the builder(s) and the server -- we all put in a lot of effort for you to have the image!

As I stated before, if you have anything you'd like me to document, contact me. If it's really good, I'll probably share it on my page. It would be a pleasure to talk with you!

Swoosh . . . here's episode three!



Episode three is the last episode from my first recording session. I have two other recording sessions recorded, and one of them has been edited.

I've been working on a render of a Lapiz Point street for the past . . . 82 and a half hours. It's pretty cool, and it's very nearly done! Just about two more hours left on it!
I was planning to take it to 10k SPP, but I decided that 3.5k looks pretty decent. I'll save some power and just do 3.5k.
I am seriously excited to show off this image. I really love it.

__________

I recently did some server documentation work for someone who contacted me through dA. I took lots of images. Some of them will be posted to MCP, but many of them are references for me to make renders of the same scene once I can access the server's map. Once I get some renders going, I'll be able to throw those images in with Shathur City and Lapiz Point images I have yet to post. It'll be good to post an image of a different world each post, rather than a bunch of the same world.

__________

I have started thinking about doing server features! How I'm thinking that might work would be for someone to, out-of-the-blue, contact me on dA and ask me to check out there server. I may also feature servers I come across or have had experience on. I'll probably have a list of things the server has to meet (things like: is the server playable, does it have good upkeep, are the staff good and just, is it fuuuun?). If the server can pass those things, then I will make a formal journal post about the server giving links to their website (if they have one) and links to whatever else is needed. There'd also be a description of the server that I would write or the server owner or staff member would write.
I would also feature the server in any deviations I would post that would have content from the sever.

I'm pretty excited about this idea, and I hope you are too! It's still in the extremely early stages, but I hope I can make it work . . . stay tuned!

Hello everyone!

I have very nearly reached 321 watchers. When that number is reached my building contest will start! (Click on "building contest" in the previous sentence to go to my journal post about it. You can enter into the contest, if you like.)

This contest is starting very soon. It will run for over two months to give the participants lots of time to build their best.

I released episode two of my Minecraft survival building gameplay.

I hope you enjoy! I have been getting great feedback and after episode three I will make some good improvements.


Ta,
