Welcome to Passion-for-Photos!
[ BE PASSIONATE! CAPTURE THE THINGS YOU LOVE. ]
Limit: TWO submissions per member per month.
Please make sure you submit your photograph to the correct folder – otherwise THEY WILL BE DECLINED. We will try to warn you in advance, but if your photo is already declined - you can't withdraw and you'll need to wait until next week to resubmit. So withdraw it and correct your mistake while you can!
Please submit your BEST WORK! Ask yourself: would I like to see this deviation in my own inbox? If you need help on specific techniques to improve your photos we'd be happy to answer your questions, so don't hesitate to ask! Please see the ‘tips’ below in order to know what we’re looking for in a photo.
Submissions with mature content must be tasteful and have the mature ‘filter’ or they will not be accepted. No complete nudes, partial nudity is okay, but only for artistic purposes (nothing erotic, please keep everything PG13).
Submissions to the Featured folder are not allowed – only Contributors, Co-Founders, and the Founder may submit to this folder to showcase our members and other extraordinary photos. The Featured folder must not contain any deviations done by Contributors, Co-founders, or the Founder. The staff may even consider moving your deviation to the Featured folder if we feel it meets the group’s standards!
Photomanipulations and heavily edited photos are not allowed! A photomanipulation includes using textures, gradients, fake bokeh, stock photos, or text - basically anything that was not straight from the camera. Of course, slight edits are acceptable, but nothing that looks too unnatural.
Self-portraits are accepted, but not photos of yourself taken by another photographer. That defeats the whole purpose! Please submit your own photos!
We vote on deviations based on our contributors’ preferences and judgment. We look at composition, lighting, contrast levels, focus, and overall quality of the photo when judging a photo. Fortunately, we offer critique services, so if your submission is declined, don’t fret! Simply ask for a critique via note (or on the submission process) and include the link to your deviation. We will be more than happy to send you a reply with a critique!
We are looking to keep Passion-for-Photos a Super Group!

Ask yourself if the photography you are submitting is your best work, not just something you’d like to get promoted! For example, please do not submit anything even remotely resembling a myspace/facebook profile picture. Those are neither artistic nor express any passion within the photo.
Ask yourself: if I were a random watcher of this group, would I want to receive photographs like this in my inbox or would this photo make me want to unwatch the group? If the only reason you’re submitting your photo is to self-promote, please don’t. It’s a waste of time, and this often drives members away, which ultimately decreases the exposure of your photo.
Ask yourself if there is anything you can do to improve the photograph. Can you crop it to improve the composition? Can you change the levels or curves in the photo to make your photo better? If you want critiques from, please SEND US A NOTE ASKING FOR A CRITIQUE.
Ask yourself: IS THIS IN THE CORRECT FOLDER? If not, please withdraw and resubmit before it is voted on. There are many photographs and members in this group and we don’t always have the time to move your photo to the correct folder.
