Violin by Dove-Stock

Musicians please forgive me for my mistreatment of the violin, I have no idea how to hold it :(

Please read the rules in my journal [link] and note me if you use! :heart:

I'm glad to see a picture with someone holding a violin on the left shoulder. I saw so many people have the violin on the right. This is a cool picture. It has a lot of emotion in it. :)

awesomely beautiful! The hold is a bit wrong, but the shot is enough to make it not matter. I'll use this, if I can!!!
MidStaryNight Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2006
You held it fine! (Well, except for the bow hand, but at least you held it in the right arm, that bugs the crap out of me when I see it in the other arm!!!! :laughing: )

You are so beautiful. My goodness, I wish I knew you in real like, I would attach myself to you in a permanant hug. ^__^ :hug:

MesmericRevelations Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2006
I love this shot. And don't worry.. you are holding it almost perfect!! Your arm needs to be held away from your body a little but who cares? I might use this.. I'll send you a link if I do ^_^

I'm a violinist and for the way she's moving it looks fine! This is amazingly beautiful!
mandylynn Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2005
you can get away with the way your holding the violin but you need to hold the bow correctly with mainly just your thumb, pointer and middle fingers

How do you do it?? I have a teeny stock account, and would love to know some tricks of the trade and you look pro to me!!

So, tips? What camera do you use?? I would love to benefit from your wisdom, lady! ^^;
Dove-Stock Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2005
hehe, thanks =D

I use a 5 megapixel Kodak Easy Share digital cam. For movement shots I have a setting on my camera called Action, where it uses a quicker shutter speed. If you don't have that setting and still want some jumping shots you can just jump towards your camera instead of across. That tends to make things less blurry, though i'm not quite sure why. ;)

Thankyou lovely lady!! :heart:

Oh man... reminds me nicely of this song called "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" and it's about a boy named Johnny who beats the devil in a violin duel.
Nindza Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2005
It's easy, you put the violin on your shoulder, and just lay your head on it. Right hand...well, it requires some more detailed description...:0) I play violin, but the photo is good anyway, don't be bothered by technicalities...
splinterblade02 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2005
this reminds me of the gyspy girl on the beach with Lestat in Queen of the Damned.
Dove-Stock Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2005
oooh! good movie, good movie :nod:
