Hello, lovely people of CRPhotography! It's TanyaSimpson here and I'm super excited to announce that as of now (like today, immediately, literally right this very second), I'll be re-joining Mrs-Durden and arbitrarynamechange in looking after the General Photography galleries. Yay!

Horror photography now fits snugly under the General Photography umbrella, so you're still welcome to send me DD suggestions from the horror gallery. The full list of categories I take suggestions from is...

  • Architecture
  • Conceptual
  • Darkroom
  • Fireworks
  • Horror & Macabre
  • Infrared
  • Other
  • People & Portraits (Body Art, Classic Portraits, Emotive Portraits, Expressive, Other, Self-Portraits, Spontaneous Portraits)
  • Still Life
  • Transportation
  • Urban and Rural
  • (OMG look at those little camera-shaped bullet points I AM IN LOVE)

I feature dark, experimental, psychedelic, visually challenging, subversive and otherwise unconventional photography with style and substance. That's why you might notice some of the General Photography galleries missing from my list. Humourous photos, pictures of kids, commercial photography and photojournalism are all kinds of awesome but they aren't my thing so I'll leave those in the capable hands of my cohorts.

You can find my full Daily Deviation suggestion guidelines here, so please have a read through those before you send me your favourite photos to feature.

And finally, I will leave you with a bunch of absolutely stunning photos from the General Photography galleries which conveniently represent exactly the sort of epic stuff I feature as Daily Deviations!

I wish I knew more about photography like fashion, people and portraits, conceptual and surreal. I guess to me it isn’t super obvious what makes a DD in regards to categories like that. 

APN, macro, and other categories that have clear differences make it easier to understand. I’m not a photographer so I don’t know much. If you can point me to an article that can assist me, please do. I’m sad to say I have tried suggesting and have been left confused what is DD material for these categories. ^^;

Much appreciation for any advice you can give me.

Every Community Volunteer who features DDs will have information on their profile and probably in a linked journal explaining how to suggest to them and what they're looking for in a Daily Deviation. Most of us have collections of past DDs so you can browse the kind of thing we feature and get a better idea of what sort of work to suggest. For photography, each month's newsletter at CRPhotography (I post those, so you should see them in your message centre from me if you aren't a CRPhotography member) there are links to each CV's last month's Daily Deviation round-up too. 

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to what makes something DD-able (apart from practical criteria like not being able to feature someone who is inactive on DA or has had a DD in the last 6 months) but most of us look for stand-out art in the categories we look after - art that's memorable, visually striking (for visual art!) and demonstrating both creative vision and impressive technical ability.

Although it's really lovely when people browse galleries they aren't as familiar with to look for amazing work to suggest, you definitely don't have to do that if it isn't fun and enjoyable for you, or if it leaves you feeling frustrated. So if there are kinds of art you naturally feel drawn to, try focusing on those :aww:

I understand. I like to challenge myself and one of my goals is to have at least one feature from every gallery. If I get frustrated, I take a break. One thing I will say that’s hard for me is that I don’t always understand what others perceive because my brain is wired differently. I hope I can figure it out.
