Hello! This group is currently looking for new admins! We have a few right now, but many of us live busy lives outside of DA. For example, I'm a full-time college student, I have a part-time job, and I also create art outside of all of that! Sometimes it gets hard to try to check the photos every day and accept/decline them.

To be an admin, I ask that:
- You know a lot about photography. If you take photos yourself, your gallery should reflect your knowledge. You do not have to be the most amazing photographer ever, but you should take quality photos.
- You read up on our rules and understand our acceptance standards and procedures. I do not want to see admins accepting photos that go against our standards. They are high and I intend for them to stay that way.
- You are able to give meaningful critique to the people that ask.
- You are polite and thoughtful to others' feelings.

So what would you get out of it?
- Immediate acceptance of your submitted work into the group. It does not have to go through the voting process if you are an admin.
- Being a part of a tight-knit group of fellow photographers who take their hobby seriously!
- Ability to discuss the group. From problems, to things that will make us better, to activities that will go on within the group.

And that's about it! As a disclaimer, when you message me or the group asking about the admin position, I may quiz you on a few things. But I mean well! I just want to make sure the people I accept are good fits for the group. :)

If you are interesting in joining us, please either send a note to me or the group. I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Admins




Welcome
Welcome to PhotographersDream! This is a place for all photographers. We aim to promote all photographers, as well as give you a chance to find other work you enjoy. In order to create an environment in which you can improve, we try to offer critique on all submissions. Just ask and you will receive!

If you're new here, please take a moment to browse our front page and acquaint yourself with the group! :)


Procedure and Rules
Please read the text in this box before you join the group. It contains essential information to ensure you have the best experience possible here. Thank you. :)
  • Join the group by clicking the "Join Our Group" button. Membership is automatically accepted.
  • Members are able to make 3 submission to the gallery per week. Your submission will need two votes to be declined or accepted. Please submit only photography!
  • PhotographersDream offers critique on all submissions, regardless of whether they are accepted or not. If you'd like critique on your work, please ask in the correspondence area and an admin will be in contact with you shortly.

Acceptance Standards
This box contains a brief overview of the group's Acceptance Standards. This is what admins consider when voting to accept or decline a submission. Your photo doesn't have to be perfect in every aspect to be accepted. We encourage you to submit your photo even if you don't think it will be accepted.

When voting to accept, we look at two main aspects of the photo: the Technical Aspects and the Creative Aspects. Technical Aspects look at what is generally considered as "correct" in a photo; such as composition, lighting, and depth of field. Creative Aspects look at your own creativity which you've incorporated into the photo; such as concept, colours, and elements within the photo (objects, models, clothing, etc).
If you have any questions about the standards, please send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Please understand that this group aims at showcasing the best photography submitted! We definitely do not accept everything that comes through. We aim to help people improve and to celebrate the most beautiful photos that DA has to offer. As a warning, if you're just starting out or only use your cell phone to snap pictures, this may not be the group for you.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT PHOTOS WITH LARGE, DISTRACTING WATERMARKS.

Policies
1.0 We do not tolerate abuse in this group. We will ban you if you are rude or demeaning to the administrators. This includes arguing with administrators after being given a reason for declined photos or after being told rules and/or policies. If you can't take criticism, please do not ask why your photo was declined.
2.0 Please only submit your photographs ONCE. If we see a piece multiple times, there will be warnings and eventually we may need to block you from the group.

Since my last submission expired and most of my submissions get declined anyway, I'm just saying thanks for the submissions that got accepted, but it's no fun anymore. Submitting my best photos and seeing them decline while the other photos that may not be my best get accepted feels just wrong and boring to me. I don't really know what you people want to see or what standards you have, and I don't feel like asking on every photo that got declined for WHY it got declined, I don't have that much time. Either you state in your rules for what kind of professional photos you want or you need to submit them yourself, sounds harsh but that's how I feel it works, sorry. 

I don't feel like submitting anymore, since it's either just getting declined or expire anyway.

So thanks for the time in this group and cheers for the rest.
Bye

I'm certainly curious as to why my submission was rejected (Banjo Maker). This work was published in Texas Highways Magazine in a story I created on Texas Luthiers and then won a blue ribbon in a Professional Photographers of America print competition. And then your group rejected it? Why?
