Welcome to @CRPhotography June newsletter! This month, we've put together another vast collection of journals featuring awe-inspiring talent, interesting articles and exciting projects for you to dive into.
The links with a Fella ( ) icon are official @CRPhotography articles and the newsletter is illustrated with beautiful photographs featured as Daily Deviations by our Community Volunteers over the last month.
On the topic of volunteers, if you'd like to be a part of the @CRPhotography team, we'd love to hear from you!
@Yuukon puts together all the outstanding photographs that were featured as DDs in April.
This collection rounds up the captivating APN photographs featured by @JenFruzz.
@Queen-Kitty rounds up all the gorgeous photographs she featured as daily deviations this year. FYI in addition to her usual fashion photography features, she's now also selecting DDs for other types of photography!
Are you a fan of cosplay? Below is just a snippet of the stunning DDs @pullingcandy featured in May.
These sparkling beauties were unearthed in the DAscape just last month. Hidden Gems by @Queen-Kitty features photography with fewer than 100 views!
In this feature, @ElyneNoir shared some of the finest imagery she came across in April — and they are stunners.
In the mood for a bit of fantasy? Prepare to wander through another enchanting escape by @ElyneNoir.
With escape in mind, how about a visual journey through these abstract and surreal pieces collected by @JustACapharnaum?
