Welcome To Beginner's Photography!

Welcome To the :iconbeginnersphotography: group:

All members are automatically accepted.

:megaphone:Submission Rules PLEASE READ:

If your submission is declined it's not our fault! Check you're submitting into the right folder. And don't leave the group just because your photo has been declined! It's a very childish decision, all you have to do is: ask! And we tell you why your photo(s) is/are rejected.

:bulletgreen: When you submit, please make sure that you submit to the right folder, or your submissions will be rejected!

:bulletred: 3 photos per week.

:bulletgreen: Please don't submit multiple photos of very similar shots. ie. a shot of an object and then another slightly different shot of the same thing.

:bulletgreen: You are allowed to post mature content, BUT it has to be tasteful. If you submit an image that is NOT tasteful, it will be removed immediately. Repeat violators will be booted.

:bulletred: Please remember to keep artistic photo quality in mind when submitting. We want to see art, not high school myspace photos. Submit what you think is your best work!
