Welcome!

We want to encourage and support every level of photographer on dA, from beginner to seasoned and everything in between.
We want our group to be a wonderful learning experience. If you love photography for it's own sake and want to improve your skill, please get involved by submitting your photos!

Our group is experiencing Admin inactivity. All submissions are now automatically approved.
BEFORE submitting your photography please understand the six points below.

:bulletpink: WE HAVE A BAN ON THE dA WATERMARK
We banned the dA watermark a long time ago. Deviants of acceptable submissions with the dA watermark attached, will be asked to remove the dA watermark. In doing this, we also ban any large watermarks/signatures that may be present on a submission - as that is the point of banning the dA watermark. To read the journal covering this topic, go here -> casualphotography.deviantart.c…

:bulletgreen: We do not want to collect photo-manipulations. That's not to say all photos that have the word "Photoshop" in the metadata are automatically rejected! Everyone touches up their work a little, it's the painfully obvious edits that we try to weed out - edits which put a cos-player into a still from a video game or the person hovering in the air firing lightning bolts out of their hands that we don't permit. It should be pretty clear what we allow by just browsing through the group galleries.
Also, please remember that photography with text placed on top will likely be removed. (not including your signature/stamp of course)

:bulletblue: Although we don't expect your submissions to be complete photographic masterpieces(although they are welcome too), we do have basic criteria by which to judge them. Your submitted photograph should show evidence that you have thought carefully about such things as composition, focus, lighting, and depth of field. In other words: Your submissions won't be snapshots, and you have put in the effort to produce a photograph to be proud of.

:bulletred: Pay attention to the gallery you're submitting to! We have a wide variety of gallery folders with clear titles; Some can easily fit in to more than one gallery so keep in mind what the focus of the photograph is when you're submitting.
We have renamed our Miscellaneousfolder to Everything else.

:bulletpurple: Please note that you should not submit your deviation to the "Featured" folder. Submit your work to an appropriate gallery folder and if the admin team comes across a photograph showcasing exceptional skill, capturing emotion in a spectacular way or one with an amazing story behind it, we may move it there.

:bulletblack: Artistic Nude - For those adult deviants who prefer the maturity filter 'off', we have a collection of artistic nudes, which are firmly judged based on their artistic merit, as well as technical quality, composition, and other aspects that make up our gallery standards. Explicit sexuality will not be accepted.

We typically do not collect macabre photography. Please don't submit it or anything horror related.

You can submit 8 deviations per month.

Happy snapping! :peace:=)
