DA's heart of photography

Welcome to CRPhotography!

CRPhotography is home to the photography Community Volunteers and the photography community on DA :heart: :camera:

We aim to support members of our photography community in a variety of ways, through announcements, editorials, features, critique, contests, fun and games, promotion and much more! Anyone is welcome to join us and/or watch the group, whether you're a seasoned veteran or have just started experimenting with your first camera.

Gallery submissions and some projects here are on temporary hiatus. This means members currently cannot submit to the group's gallery. It also means we're working on making things even more awesome for your participation and enjoyment, and we'll share updates and information about progress and new stuff as it happens.

Suggest a Daily Deviation!

Many of our wonderful Daily Deviations come from suggestions made by the community. If you think a piece deserves to be a Daily Deviation, suggest it to one of our Photography Community Volunteers! Self-Suggestions are also welcome.

To suggest a Daily Deviation, send a note with the subject DD Suggestion and a thumbnail of the piece to only one Community Volunteer. Some Community Volunteers invite you to include a reason why you're suggesting the piece and others don't require that, so be sure to check each CV's guidelines before suggesting to them.

For more information about what Daily Deviations are, and a list of which CVs feature from which genres, mediums and subjects, please read How do I suggest Daily Deviations?
