Group Rules: Read BEFORE Joining

:bulletgreen: If you love to take Macro Photo’s, please join as a member. If you just find Macro Photography to be amazing and love it, please watch the group!!

:star: 3 strikes and you're out. This includes; rude comments on declined photos, breaking any of these listed rules 3 times and I will personally remove you from the group.

:star::star::star: If the photo cannot be full viewed then it doesn't belong here. No matter how beautiful it may be. When clicked, the photo must fill the screen or close to it. (Average screen size, if not estimate) Still not sure, look through our gallery, at the photos that are accepted & their file sizes. (This rule has been a rule since the group started, not new. You didn't read em.) Many do not have a problem, some do.

:bulletgreen: You must be a member to submit work. The group requesting a piece is another story.

:bulletgreen: Have fun and Submit lots of work!!

:star::star: Only submit your BEST work. PLEASE do NOT submit similar photos from the same series. Pick the best one. If you submit others, I will pick the one I think is the best, all the others will be declined.

:bulletgreen: There are only 3 folders, please submit to the right one.
Featured folder is reserved for photos that leave you with a feeling of wonderment.

:bulletgreen: Must be Photography. Be it digital or film.

:bulletgreen: Only high quality Photography, please!

:star::star: Do not repeatedly resubmit a certain photo if it keeps getting denied/removed. Try another photo, please. If you want to know why it was declined the first 3 times, ask. ASK.

:bulletgreen: On a declined photo, if you ask why it was declined, I will happily tell you to help you with future submissions.

:star: No heavily edited or blurry photos.

:bulletgreen: Everything gets voted on, sorry. Because people have trouble following/reading rules. Members are allowed to submit 8 photos to the group daily. Contributors have unlimited submissions without a vote needed. **Even Contributors can have photos removed if they break any of the following rules. Just because you are a Contributor doesn't mean YOU don't have to follow the rules also. There is a demote option ;)

:star: Anything will be removed if it breaks any of the listed rules.

:bulletgreen: Be polite at all times. Respect all artists and their work. This goes for Me, Members and Contributors. Its a group, the focus should be all the amazing photography!

:bulletgreen: If you have any problems please send me a note or send a note to the group. Please don't complain in the comments, meaning on the groups profile page.

:star:DO NOT write the group a note or comment on our profile asking why your photo was declined. You will either comment on the declined photo itself or you will not find out why it was declined. Please, take your pick. Getting a vague note asking why your photos were declined, most of the time not showing me the photo that you are speaking of is getting to be too much. So.. the comments of that declined photo, ask there.

--------GROUP FOLDERS & Where to submit works--------

:bulletgreen:Macro Human: Anything that is apart of a Human. As in eyes, skin texture, lips, body parts with different objects or anything else involving the human body. It must be a close up or a straight up Macro. If you can see the entire face, this is not macro.

:bulletgreen:Macro Nature: Anything that is natural, found in nature. Spider webs, flowers, textures, rain droplets etc. Macro beauties found within nature, not set-up by yourself. Those are still accepted though (as in all natural objects set up in nature by yourself not just found in that order/set-up, but this is a rare case indeed.)

:bulletgreen:Macro Other: Small macro objects that cannot be placed in human or nature. Now this can be whatever creative macro you have to the standard studio water droplet shot, small objects, textures. Anything is possible within this folder.

Hello everyone!!

   I am very happy to report that dA has sorted out whatever issues they had going on because everything button wise here on dA that went down for me in the start of February- started working again, randomly, around the start of April. I couldn't use any buttons, as in clicking "Accept" or "Deny" here, to submitting photos into the groups by clicking "Add to a Group", from buttons on my own page not working. It was really hard not being able to accept things as easily as I should. Even though the site gave me issues, I worked through them and discovered a loop-hole to still get my jobs done in my groups. In the start of April, I believe, I just tried the normal way of accepting pieces and boom it worked like it should. I was so excited and won't take nothing for granted, things are working as they should. All around. Due to these issues though, I became very inactive here on dA, it made me sad to be away but I couldn't do much while I was here which made me even more sad. Lol.


Since everything is back to normal, I wanted to update everyone to let them know work will be flowing stronger than before due to not being able to at all.


   Plus, I wanted to give a BIG thank you to everyone who stuck with me through this bullshit. I had a lot of group members leave, (from each of my groups) after my last update- even having a loop-hole people were pissed. I got notes where people were pointing the finger at me, like I was lazy or something. So, it truly means a lot that most of you stuck around with me. I knew the issues would clear up, they were on dA's end, they must be waited out. I think I did a pretty good job keeping the work flowing even though it took several minutes to accept/submit one piece. I love & adore my groups and this community, good things are worth the trouble and stress.


Bring on the ART!! :heart: :thanks:

Everything and anything that falls into the high quality macro that has the power to amaze. Nature, human and other macro photos are welcome here. Where imagination is very important and passion for everything macro takes first seat in this group.

Whether are you new to Macro photography, love it and don’t really do it yourself or love macro so much, it’s like it’s taken on a mind of its own. This group, I made to focus on the passion to grow as an artist. For new & experienced Photographers, a place to go for inspiration. High quality means to me; No blurry photos, the photo isn’t a small box which I cannot even click to full view to see details. Macro is all about seeing the smaller details in life, in a detailed photo of something micro size. Please show me the details!!!

Group Avatar/Photo is a photo by myself, actually :]
