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 made a happy little mountain-top house in survival the other day. It's design was one of function and looks. It was designed to make me feel good to be in.

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!
Interests
Several months ago a fellow deviant :iconconcept-junky: contacted me and was interested in me checking out the server he plays on.
A little while later I had gone crazy and taken close to two hundred images. I gave some of the images to Concept-Junky, and I kept a few for posting to MinecraftPhotography.

I have been focusing more on making renders, versus taking screenshots, simply because making a render is more fun. That's why there haven't been many postings from me of non-rendered images.

I didn't go on the server to build anything, so I can't tell you much about the game-play of the server, but I can tell you it has a cool spawn area!


Here is the server IP:
108.170.5.66:25645 If you want to see some of these builds for yourself, a lot of them a very near the server spawn.

Below are some of the images I took. Click on any of them to go to Concept-Junky's deviant page for the image.

Just a quick note about the above image: I will be posting a pretty sweet image I took from the crow's nest of this ship.

Let's do this!

1) You must post these rules.
2) There were some more rules, but I deleted them because I don't care. It's my journal.

Facts: For whatever reason they're here. I'll pop some in.

1) I'm 17 years old, but most people guess 23.
2) I currently have long hair, and I love it. It's way more interesting. I can literally just play with my head and be entertained.
3) I'm home-schooled.
4) I took a year-long break from Minecraft. With the time that that freed up, I started volunteering at a non-profit bicycle shop. I started volunteering there three years ago. The shop hired me part-time several months ago. This just goes to say: Take a break from your games and go make something of yourself. But of course, I'm playing games again. I still do other things to advance my self-worth though, don't worry.
5) I build less in the virtual word and more in the real world. My current big project is a tree house. The tree house is constructed around my life, for my life. It'll have a large floor space for having groups of friends over. skipping over a lot of details so you don't get bored There will be a loft that will be insulated and have passive heating and cooling. That's where I will sleep year-round (except for dangerous situations like thunderstorms). Off the loft roof (this is a recent change to the design) will be a reading window, that leans out over the ground, and has a comfortable window seat on the inside to facilitate comfortable reading.
6) I build and do things for myself.
7) I really enjoy movement and have taken classes for parkour/freerunning and tumbling. I am currently taking classes for trapeze and silks. Between the two gymnasiums I go to regularly, in one week I get to practice all those different kinds of movement. I value movement immensely, but I can't just do one thing -- that's why I also game and build things. 
8)
9) I don't waste my time on people I don't like, and thus spend more time on the people I do like; forging strong friendships with a close few.
10) MinecraftPhotography is where I put my skills to good use and challenge myself to create the best images I can with what I have available to me.
11) The way people try to make tags (a tag like the one you have been reading) popular is very annoying. That's why I rarely do them, but I got tagged by someone I respect, so it was going to happen. 
12) I also thought it might be time to give some more in-depth information about myself.


MinecraftArchitect90's Questions,

1) Describe yourself in three words.
Loyal, caring, and passionate.

2) What console do you play on most?
The Wii, but it's not one I own. I play it at a friend's house -- good times. I normally don't touch consoles, but the Wii is special.

3) What about you would you improve on most?
My physical flexibility.

4) Briefly describe your life philosophy.
Remember to enjoy it.

5) Are you quick to anger?
WHAT THE HELL KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT!? Sometimes. It really depends on the situation.

6) What are your favorite music genres?
I really enjoy the genre of Good or Awesome. (I'm really just tired of struggling to answer this question. I enjoy soundtrack music from certain movies and I like most of the stuff Hans Zimmer and Max Richer have made.)

7) Pick one TV show from your childhood you most fondly remember most.
I haven't a clue. I didn't really watch a whole lot of TV when I was a kid. Okay, I did. I'm just being lazy. I'd have to say what ever the kids' programming was on my local public television station. Good stuff.

8) Speaking of TV, do you think kids' TV has changed much over the last 20 years?
Yep.

9) Are you hungry right now, at this very moment?
Maybe. . . .

10) What is your favorite pet?
I can't answer this one. I simply cannot decide.
  • Listening to: My Only Swerving by El Ten Eleven (My favorite)
  • Playing: Supreme Commander: Forgged Alliance
  • Eating: Whatever I put in my mouth two minutes ago.
  • Drinking: Water.

Crow's Nest by MinecraftPhotography
Crow's Nest
Getting back to my old style of capturing images can be refreshing!


I met up with Concept-Junky on SlimeCraft (IP: 108.170.5.66:25645) and took a bunch of images. Some of these images I gave to him, but I kept a few for posting to dA. If you would like to see the images that Concept-Junky posted, you can look at his gallery or at my journal.


I may in the future re-upload this image and a few others from this server as renders.
__________

My work is downloadable! I do not wish to keep Minecraft to myself; I want to share it as much as I can.

However, should you make any of, or anything from any of my images public, you must credit my work and the work of the builders (if there were any) by linking to the image's page or my deviantART page from wherever you make our work public.
Thank you!

Minecraft | Sunset Village by MinecraftPhotography
Minecraft | Sunset Village
I love the sunset reflection off the river and the ocean.

If you have a 5120x1440 monitor, I am very happy for you. Not only because you could use this image as a desktop wallpaper at native resolution, but you also have a 21:9 5120x1440 monitor.


Thoughts
I really love when I can fit a scene into the "ultra widescreen" form factor. It can give the image an expansiveness that fills your vision and gives you so much to look at.

I love the river on the right that seems to come in from the left of the image and hide behind the forest then swing out into view, only to run off and hide in the forest again.

I really love this image. I hope you do too!

I don't know what could be causing you problem, but something that might fix it would be to re-install the mod.
