About Me



Who is Mrs-Durden?


You can call me Mrs-Durden or Nina, either one is fine. I am your Art Nude, Fashion, and Chat & Forums Community Volunteer.

I'm 20 years old, I'm from France yet was born in Athens, Greece, and am currently residing in the United States to attend University. I'm most often described as a sassy angry French woman, which may not transpire through DeviantART that often, but is actually quite accurate.

I have a short temper, I don't like dealing with people's crap. I'm a very honest and straightforward person, I may seem harsh at times, but really. I'm nice.

I love portrait photography, art (esp. neoclassicism or baroque), cinematography, music, traveling, writing, a lot of things really. I'm a history, international relations, and political science major...if that can tell you anything about myself and my interests. And that's all I can think of saying, so here, look at my face!

To share what you loveHello everyone,

It's been such a long time since I've done a feature just for the heck of it, without any purpose whatsoever other than showcasing things I love. I've been so busy on here with young-photo-club, Death-Chicks, GetDailyDeviations, and my own Group Spotlight features that I haven't been able to do a feature of random things I've seen and adored here on DA! So here it goes!

To share what you love IIHey everyone,

A little while ago I posted an art feature called To share what you love, because it had been a long time since I had done a feature just for the heck of it, filled with works I love, unaffiliated with any of the groups I'm an admin of, or any other specific purpose for the DA community. I figured I would do another one, just to share some amazing work that I love. So here it goes:

Eating Disorders Awareness

Eating Disorder AwarenessWelcome to an article about eating disorders, aimed at spreading awareness, advice, knowledge, and support into the community.
What is an eating disorder?
There are many known eating disorders in today's world; anorexia and bulimia are the most notorious ones. An eating disorder has to do with mental, emotional, and physical issues in regards to food and ones own body. There is no perfect description of what an eating disorder is, however, because every individual lives it in a different way. The only important distinction I can make is that an eating disorder in many ways cannot be controlled, it is an illness, and not a choice.
"Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect a person’s emotional and physical health. They are not just a “fad” or a “phase.” People do not just “catch” an eating disorder for a period of time.  They are real, complex, and devastating
Eating Disorder Interviews - SnowInHadesWelcome to our first interview as a continuation of my Eating Disorder Awareness article which you can find below:

Please thank SnowInHades for taking the time to answer these questions for the community!


1. How have you experienced eating disorders, has it been through friends or family, or a personal experience for you? Can you tell us a little bit about it? 
My experience with eating disorders is personal and through friends. My first contact with an eating disorder was when I moved in with a lady who was bulimic. I was about 17 years old (1987) and I hadn't even heard of eating disorders back then. Unfortunately, once you find out, you never forget. I have struggled with an addictive personality my entire life and at that time I was a bit chubby and not happy with myself. I had started to exercise, which turned into an addiction in itself and it's something that
Eating Disorder Awareness - A victim's confessionsWelcome to an article aimed at bringing awareness of eating disorders and their long-lasting effects on their victims. Please be warned, this journal contains sensitive material that may be triggering to some.
Ten confessions from a victim of EDNOS

If you don't know what EDNOS is feel free to read this journal, or visit this link.
I can't look at myself in a full-body mirror, it makes me feel so ashamed that I start crying, and refuse to leave my house.
I go through periods where I stop eating, if I break and binge, I punish myself by making myself vomit, or hurting myself in some other way.
I like the feeling of dizziness I get from not eating for multiple days. It feels like success to me. Like I'm actually accomplishing something, and it's
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and why it mattersMany of you might have seen your friends dump buckets of ice on themselves in the past few weeks, for what is called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Many of you probably wondered what on earth ALS is, and perhaps assumed it was some sorority thing, or maybe just another silly challenge like the cinammon challenge. But no, this is something very different than what many of us might have thought at first.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis:
Often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. You will

Mental Illness Awareness

Addiction is a Mental IllnessOnce an addict, always an addict

I grew up surrounded by people who threw themselves into drugs and alcohol to escape the realities of their lives, or with the hopes that their addiction might finally kill them.
Alcohol and narcotics are two of the most dangerous addictions we come in contact within our lives, and also, two of the most tempting ones to delve into.
Few can say that they haven't had a drink after a bad day, or perhaps popped a pill, smoked a spliff, to relax after stressful times. However, while many are able to have a taste and stay in control, many are not so lucky. Addictions come without real warning, what starts out as fun and recreational use can turn into severe addiction, and once you're in, it's almost impossible to find a way out.
Addictions are not to be romanticized

The romanticizing of addictions has always been incredibly common. Movies often make it look "badass", people want to be that cool edgy kid who's experienced it

Modeling: Do's and Dont'sPeople & Portrait Photography
Here's a short piece on the do's and dont's of modeling, or rather some basic tips on how to model to the best of your abilities, and make the best out of your shootings. This advice is coming from the perspective of a portrait photographer, who has dealt closely with models of all types (amateur, professional), and who has seen the good and the bad.
DO: Look at yourself in a mirror, study your features, try different expressions, model poses for yourself. As silly as it may seem, it helps. It helps for you to see what you look like, what works for your face and body, and what does not. Practicing in front of the camera is great, but you don't need to necessarily be in a shoot to practice. A lot can be done beforehand with simple things like this.
DO: Take care of your body as well as you can. And by this I do not mean, go on crazy diets or anything of the sort. But eat healthy, take care of your skin, your nails,
Lighting in Portrait PhotographyPeople and Portraits week
Hello everyone,
I'm writing this tutorial of sorts, for all of you portrait photographers out there seeking advice about the lighting in your photographs. First off let me be clear in saying that I am no expert, or rather I do not claim to be, I sometimes do things in unusual ways, and my tips and advice are definitely not the only ones you should follow. This journal is just me giving you my take on how to get great lighting for your shots :)
1. Never shoot when the sun is at its highest peak.
Depending on where you live and your climate, this might vary, but I usually never shoot between the hours of 12-4 unless I'm shooting indoors, or it's a cloudy day. If you're doing an outdoors shoot and the sun is blasting on your model, you are very unlikely to get good results. Not only will it be uncomfortable for your model, and make it difficult to pose with a natural expression (sun in your eyes, worst feeling in the world),
The Artistic Nude Gallery - What is it really?Galleries Month
Welcome to a description of what the sub-category of People and Portraits Photography; the Artistic Nude gallery, is all about. This article should help you avoid miscats, and better understand a sub-category that you might not appreciate or be familiar with yet. (Warning: Mature Content within this journal)

As defined by DeviantART, Artistic Nude is "high quality fine art photography that makes use of a nude or partially nude human subject."

The artistic nude gallery is a beautiful category filled with many conceptual, emotive, and inspiring shots of human beings in their most natural element.

The artistic nude gallery is not what many people reduce it to (just a bunch of sex, boobs, mediocre porn). It is a gallery where people bare themselves, find ways to create moving captures using the human body in an artistic and tasteful manner.
