As most of you probably know, I am currently the only one who votes on submissions. That is why if your deviation is denied, you can ask for a critique and if you can provide a strong enough argument for why it should be allowed, I will change my ruling and let it in.
I also spend most of my time searching DA for more photos for this group. This is a very time consuming task, and I do it every day to make sure there is a constant stream of photos into our galleries. However, this means that I frequently miss things, and I don't have time to search through someone's entire gallery and request every photo I kind of like.
That is why I encourage you to submit photos yourself to the group! When you upload a new photo of someone dancing, view that deviation and on the side there is a button to submit it to a group. Click that, and choose #dancephotography. It's that easy! I just don't have the time to go through all of your galleries and request every single photo.
When you do submit, please be mindful of where you submit it to. Featured is a very difficult folder to get into. Most of the time I have to reject photos submitted there that would have gotten in if they had been submitted anywhere else.
Thank you all for being a part of this group, your photography is what makes this group run!
