Your Home for APN Photography


Hello and welcome to AnimalsPlantsNature's next themed month. During the month of July, we'll be showcasing...  :drumroll: for photohunt by PunkyB  :drumroll: for photohunt by PunkyB  :drumroll: for photohunt by PunkyB

Domesticated Animals Photography!


Domesticated Animals is one of the most popular subcategories of APN! Rightfully so, for this category is a treat for the eyes. It includes any manner of domesticated animals from dogs to cats to horses and smaller creatures like bunnies, guinea pigs, or mice. And everything inbetween! Most of the time this category, like most of the APN subcategories, will contain no human elements. Additionally, zoo animals--while captivated--are considered wild animals. However, this is not always the case as you may see a horse with a barn in the background or human hands cradling a tiny, newborn kitten. You could encounter delightful still life setups that involve smaller domestic creatures. You'll also see animals grazing a field with a beautiful, foggy backdrop or small pets rolling in the grass. Whatever your flavor, Domesticated Animals is sure to deliver!

A fish is considered a domesticated animal? I took a picture of a clownfish the other day when I was at an aquarium, and a lot of other fishes.

A fish from an aquarium is not really a domesticated animal. that type of photo would fit best in Aquatic Life :)

So, you say no phot manipulations...does that include editing? Because I only have a 3DS to take pics with, and the visual is horrid. I wanted to try and add some brightness to it. Am I allowed?

Photomanipulation, for the purposes of our contests, involves pieces from different photographs being put together to make a new one :)

Generally, an APN photograph should not contain humans to be truly APN. So there should be minimal human presence in your photos for the contest! :) The focus of the photograph needs to be focused on the animal too :D

yeah I'm not sure that would be suitable for the project as it's more of a people portrait since the person is fully visible :)
