Group Info

The camera enables us to capture everything around us. With the popularity of photography increasing constantly, and the availability of cheap cameras on everything we use, so much is documented, but how much is worth remembering? As a group, we encourage photography as an art form. To take your time to compose the scene, to think about what you will capture before you press the shutter, To look through the lens, as an artist would feel his brush. This is what we wish to promote.

There are a few things that I want to say/get off my chest, nothing major, just to help make this a better group for everyone.

First off, people seem to be posting anything and everything into the "Conceptual" gallery, here is Wikipedia’s definition of conceptual photography..

"Conceptual photography is a photography genre in which the artist makes a photograph of a concept or idea. Usually the conception of the idea precedes the realization of the photography. This kind of photography often involves use of computer editing, to achieve the desired effects."

Secondly, I know the galleries are set to unlimited submissions, but please please please respect it and don’t upload your entire gallery; I don’t want to have to limit it to a post or two a week. I don’t mind if you submit two or three, but please make sure that it is your best work so we can keep the standards of art up, I don’t mean any offence by this, but this is deviantART not Photobucket or MySpace.

Third and final, if you have any ideas or suggestions on how we can improve and make the group better, or any extra galleries please feel free to post on the wall or send us a note, I look forward to reading your suggestions :)

Have a great day!!

Question I submitted a photo not long ago and I just saw that it says it expired, so does that mean I can resubmit it ? Or what?
