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 don't write journals a lot. Only for important reasons do I take time
to write any journal for any of my groups. But this is a subject that always
has to be addressed with this group and the people who join it :nod:

READ THE FUCKING RULES!! It is really that simple. I really I am tired of telling
people this. I am annoyed that  people do not read the rules, that are placed at
the top, they are all there. Biggest to the smallest, so there are no confusions.
But there are many. And it is simply because people want to join, want their
work featured in this group, but people don't want/feel the need to read the rules.

Which is completely shitty. Most people have no idea how much of a damn hassle it
is to have to go and decline pieces I have already declined 2 times before, PLUS wrote
a comment explaining why it was declined for future reference, to help one learn the group.
Which was ignored. I hate having to decline pieces because they break rules that weren't read.
I also hate having to write LONG detailed comments as to why the piece was declined because
simply declining it the first 2 times with a simple comment was not good enough. I hate it. So read.

This group keeps growing, leaps and bounds it feels like. I am very particular about what is accepted.
BUT ya know what? Everyone gets their work voted on. If everyone else can follow the rules, Idk why this
select 100+ people cannot grasp the concept. But the breaks end here....

The 3 strikes and you're out rule applies in another way now, if I have to decline the same piece 3+ times.
Goodbye! 620+ members and that is just within this group. I don't have the time for people who don't respect
this group enough to know what is and is not accepted. It's very easy to learn.
Two ways- works with any group actually.

1.) Read the rules before joining, making sure you like how it sounds & that your work will fit in.
2.) Look in the groups gallery and its folders, again making sure your work fits with what is there.

Sorry if I sound like a bitch. But running a group is not easy. The more members, the more
photo submissions, the more work. I work a lot on this group. It was my first, I love Macro.
It is a big passion of mine, so to put a lot of time into this group to give everyone a great group.
I just ask for a bit of respect. Read the rules. If they change, I will notify. But otherwise they
have been the same since it formed :nod:

[I plan to link people to this journal in the future. Because it just needs to be said.]

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!!!
