|The Best of Heads - AKA Feature Folder|
This group is for Headshots, and as the name implies; shoulders and up. Can it drop down to the collarbone... or alittle further? sure; I'm not going to be THAT picky; but the picture needs to have the face as the focal point; high contrast of the face from the background helps in these situations.
The main focus is photography; photomanipulations are acceptable if the quality is suffecient for my picky standards and it has credits where it's due. They can be submitted to the "Art" folders along with the traditional mediums of art.
Any deviant can submit to folders, but will need a vote to get in. Members can submit auto-accept to Male, Female, Black and White folders, and Art folders. All others are voted into by me.
Please don't send pictures that look very similiar; just pick your top shot and go with it. I don't mind self portrait shots, as long as the quality is "good". Overly grainy (less it's intended) or just plain to small will not likely be accepted (sizes noted below). This would include out of focus pictures aswell. Also I'm not a fan (even though I know they're necessary) of pictures with watermarks on the face, they'll likely be removed too (off the face and i likely won't care).
sizes: 800 pixels wide for Landscape directional pictures. 600 pixels for Portrait directional pictures. anything smaller has a very good chance of being removed.
A Pictured Guideline for the rules:
So just how far can you go down before i remove it from the gallery?... if the nipple line is in it, it's likely to far.
GOOD (will accept):
TO FAR(will reject):
Now in the description above it does say i'd accept "FACE FOCAL" pictures... these would be examples of that; they do drop below the nipple line, but the overall feel of the picture is focused on the subjects face. (although i'll be honest, it''s really up to my discrection in the end; and i can be picky ... )
So there is the basics... So upload and be happy!
