3 strikes and you're out. This includes; rude comments on declined photos AS you break any of these listed rules 3 times. Simply breaking a rule will not get you removed. Nasty comments attached is another story. Hence why this rule exists and I will personally remove you from the group. It's really no trouble :]
This group is for Photography ONLY. Other mediums will not be accepted. It should be clear that they aren't.
Please read all rules before joining & submitting.
Everyone who joins is accepted but all images
are voted on.
Only submit your BEST work. PLEASE do NOT submit similar photos from the same series. Pick the best one. If you submit others, I will pick the one I think is the best, all the others will be declined.
Do not over submit, not every photo is going to be a gem. So, if you submit a lot and only 2 are accepted this is a reason why. Too much & most of the work missed our mark.
You must be a member before you submit.
The group requesting photos is a different story.
Please try to submit to the right folder or the
photo will be declined. Featured folder is off limits for submissions. All other folders are open.
If a photo keeps getting denied. Do not keep
submitting it. Try another photo.
High quality portraits only! No blurry photos, over edited, photos that are small little boxes or bad quality cell phone photos.
Photoshopped photos are welcome but it cannot be over done. It must be tasteful & must add to the image instead of distracting from the main subject.
Photomanipulation is not accepted. Because it goes against the reason I started this group. Many groups welcome manips but t h i s group is just not one of them. BUT, a little bit here and there in a portrait, as long as its not over done (depending on the photo) will be accepted. Sometimes it can truly enhance a mood or a theme the Photographer wants to create. I still prefer most of the photo to be real. If that is not the case, it simply doesn't belong here.
Members are allowed to submit 6 photos a day.
Contributors have unlimited submissions.
Please submit only your best work!
And have fun while doing so.
Please be respectful at all times,
to other artists & their work.
And if you have any problems or
questions feel free to send the group a note!
DO NOT write the group a note or comment on our profile asking why your photo was declined. You will either comment on the declined photo itself or you will not find out why it was declined. Please, take your pick.
