Hey everyone! So we've got a few new things coming up. Critique nights, PhotoFriday, and iSpyPhoto!
This journal will explain what each event is and when we will be running it I do hope you guys will participate in one or even all the events Some are weekly and some we will do once in awhile If you have any questions feel free to comment on this journal. And also if you have any idea for future events/contests please send us a note! We'd love to get your idea into the group
We are looking for volunteers! Interested in helping out in the group? Please leave a comment on this journal entry and you will be contacted soon!
During these events you will join the #iPhotograph chatroom with a photo you'd like to get a critique on.
When one of the mods start Critique Night they will ask you to press 1 if you are interested in joining. The order that the 1's are in is the order you guys will post for critiques.
You must post a photograph ( duh )
When you press 1 you are not only signing up for a critique but you also have to participate in critiquing others that will be posting as well. If you don't your turn will be skipped.
When Critique Night starts please refrain from posting thumbs unless you are the one up for a critique.
Pretty simple eh?
When will these take place? - To Be Announced
Every Friday you will be given a theme. You will have 1 week to take a photo (must be taken AFTER the theme is given). The themes could range from Portraits,nature, macro, animals and could also be a more precise theme like "The color pink" or "Something Circle shaped" etc.
When you are done please note your submissions to AshleyxBrooke Also please add "Taken for iPhotograph's PhotoFriday" in your photos description
The photos will then be added to our "PhotoFriday" blog each Friday at the same time you are given a new topic for the next week.
Eventually we would like to make this a chat event. So everyone would meet on Friday to share their photos in the chat, but right now we are working on getting volunteers to help with the events We'll keep you posted though!
When will this start up? - Started up June 26th, 2015 ---> iphotograph.deviantart.com/jou…
This game will be taken place in the #iPhotograph chatroom at random. (when we host, we'll put up a poll that one will be going on)
A mod will start it up by asking if you'd like to play please press 1. (That way we can keep track of who is playing)
The mod will find a certain deviation in the galleries of one of the members that are in the chat at the time.
"I spy a photo of a cat" - The photo MUST be the one that the mod has already picked out
This game is still a work in progress so there will be changes or addons etc! So keep an eye out on that
This game is run in our sister chat #PhotoHunt
1. A game will begin when there are 4 players!
2. There must be 3 entries at the end of the game or there is no winner.
3. Winners must keep there images on DA since it will be added to the photohunt group gallery.( most players make a "Photohunt" Folder)
4. Wait until the end of the game to post your image.
5. Must be only 1 shot and not a collage
6. If you drop out you WILL be penalized. This means you will lose a win. If you have no wins it will just be a negitive.
7.Image needs to be clean!
8. Picture needs to be taken AFTER the topic has been posted
9. Please make sure the exif data and the clocks on your camera are set correctly!
10. Text is allowed in images only if it is in the form of a watermark.
11. Please be sure to title your photo whatever the topic of the hunt is!

Hello members of iPhotograph - Are you on FB?
First of all I want to give a huge thank you to all you guys for being part of this group. (No don't worry, we're not shutting down) Right now I'm waiting to upgrade us back to supergroup until AFTER we switch to Eclipse next month. I'm not sure how groups will be doing on the new site so I don't want to jump into supergroup again until I can get it figured out. So right now just be sure to keep an eye on this space for an updates. I'm also debating reviving the iPhotograph facebook page. Would there be any interest in that? Do a lot of you spend time on Facebook? It's on my list of things to do so we'll see! 13 years strong and 18k
