Group Info

ObscuredPhotos, an extension of ProjectComment, is a photography group dedicated to exposing obscured (unknown, underappreciated, etc.) photography.

It doesn't matter where you are at in terms of skill; if you are underappreciated and you feel you deserve more recognition, you've come to the right place!

Definition of 'Obscured'

Obscured can mean a variety of things: lacking light, not clear/indistinct/undefined, not easily understood/vague/uncertain. In this case, 'Obscured' means not well known and hidden, or you might be more familiar with the term unknown and underappreciated.

Please follow this Universal Obscured Photos Guidelines while submitting:

The deviation must...

:star: ...have 0-5 original comments.
Original: Comments that do not include replies or a couple of words/phrases.

:star: 1 week old or older.

:star: submitted to under 10 Groups. If it is over, then there must be under 500 Views on the deviation.

Dear fellow deviants. I have a Kickstarter project that is ending in about a week.…
At this point it is only 30% funded. PLEASE take a look and consider supporting me, AND please share the link with at least one other person. (If that person is incredibly wealthy, that would be even better!) It will be good for your art karma . .
Thank you.
(Group admins, feel free to mention this in your group journal or announcements. . . THANKS!)
