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

Fungi and Geology Photography!

Fungi photography is a subset of APN that that turns a common forest dweller into artistic beauty. This is the category you want to explore if you're looking for fungus, be it mushrooms and molds.  Geology photography is one of the most underutilized subcategories of APN! Geology photography can contain photographs of geologic structures such as volcanoes, caves, and mountain ranges. It could include something smaller like gemstones embedded with larger rock masses or crystalline sands. The photographers who submit to these categories may seem like they are limited in what they can photograph but the creative possibilities are endless!

Here is what you can expect to see from us this month:
  • Interviews with deviants who represent this category with beautiful artwork
  • Features to showcase some of the category's best deviations
  • Tutorials to help you create your own Fungi or Geology photography
  • Oh... And a contest! More details on that below.
We hope you're as excited for this as we are!

Try uploading it as a new deviation perhaps? Keep the original one in your gallery still but make a note in your new deviation description that it is being re-uploaded for the contest due to a submission error

Done!! I salute you!

i have a question the rule :The deviation must be no older than May 1, 2016 (we want to see your newer work!) dose that mean date taken or date submitted cuz i don't think its fair if its date submitted cuz people like me have like 2 TB hard drives with years of photos we have yet to submit but its not "recent" just curious

Hi there :)

I understand the concern for sure. However, not everyone uploads camera data when submitting a deviation. So, fairly, we can only go by the DA submission date.

Hope that helps!
