Photography Posting Guidelines

Guidelines for posting photos:

You can post as many photos as you want, but please give some effort to editing them. If you made 235 photos on your shoot, please don’t post all of them. If you made 25 photos of the park bench, please just choose the best 1 of the 25 and post just it. Keep in mind that we all went on the same shoot, so it is likely we all took at least 1 shot of the park bench.

Do you know how to tell the difference between an experienced photographer and a beginner? The experienced photographer knows to only post his best shots.

There have been many shoots I have been on where I come back with 300 exposures, but the truth is sometimes only 10 of them are good. This is not a contest of who posts the most shots and the truth is if you post too many people will get bored and just quickly move on to the next.

Helpful tips on editing your photos. Please think about each of these for every shot you post.

1) Is the subject clear in your photo?
2) Is your photo exposed properly
3) Is the focus good?
4) Does your photo need to be cropped or rotated?
5) Is this the best of the series?



If you can’t decide which ones to post, post a few and ask other members which ones they like the best and why. We are all here to learn from one another.

I recommend reducing the size of your photos to around 1500x1500 to keep the photos loading quickly in everyone’s browser. If you are worried about your photography being stolen (it does happen from time to time), I’d recommend watermarking your images before posting.

Lastly, if you choose to comment on someone else’s photography, try to be kind and give constructive feedback. Think before you post. We have photographers here of all skill levels and all are welcome.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting!

Chris
