Important: New Photography Category - Close Up
The first changes in the Animals, Plants & Nature category are done. A lot of things are completely new (more categories) and some stuff has changed. It's a big step for the Animals, Plants & Nature community into the future.
But that's not the topic here. If you want to read more what has changed -> visit this journal or wait for the upcoming Artist Relations Newsletter.
Topic: What is a Close Up (Macro) and should I upload my shot into this category?
Let's see the Gallery Desc on dA:
Closeup definition: Photography in which the image on film or electronic sensor is as large or larger than the subject. Otherwise it's not a Closeup-Shot and not the right category.
Additional Info:
For example, suppose a photographer wants to take a macro photograph of a coin on film. With the lens set for a magnification of 1:1, he or she moves the camera to and fro until the coin is in

Hope you had an awesome friday. :)
The rules of fotoFRIDAY are simple: write a poem or story about the given picture. It can be inspired from the photo, about it, or an element from it. There are is no line minimum or maximum: just think of this as a weekly 'prompt' to get yourself inspired. The contest itself can be found every friday on my journal, so be sure to take a peek and give it a try.
For more information about fotoFRIDAY (and stamps!) take a look here:
:postit: Check out the poll at the fotoFRIDAY account -- we want you opinion about the future of fotoFRIDAY!
Let's keep the news short and sweet this week and get straight to the writing!

fotoFRIDAY has never been about crafting polished piece in less than a week; it's about inspiration, perhaps when you need it the most. Nak

Photographing People Vol. 12
Photographing People is a monthly feature, that does exactly what it says on the tin - concentrates on showcasing photography featuring people. The pictures are divided into three different style categories, namely portraiture, fashion, and conceptual. These definitions are treated quite loosely though, and what ends up in which section depends on the mood and look of the piece, regardless of which DA category the work is submitted in. Every month I'll also try to bring you at least one interesting Feature of the month submission, which might be a good tutorial or an exceptionally interesting article, or even just a brilliant photograph, which deserves its own special spotlight.
So, without further ado, here's this month's edition of Photographing People. Enjoy!

Just getting back online.

We moved to Germany in early June and have just got our internet hooked up.  It's been a wonderful summer here and we've spent most days outside until sunset (10:30pm in June/July).

So no need for internet.  Or TV.  Or phone.

But now it's cooling down, autumn is here and the trees are changing quickly.  Soon it will be winter with just 8 hours of sunlight a day.

I trust all is well with each of you.

Guess what? I got your bamboo framed super nicely and put it in my office. :) It is great to stare at when I'm working on a tough problem! :D
billsabub Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2011

Thank you so much, Kate!

So many years later, it's still one of my favorites. Framed and hanging just to the upper right of my television. I honestly spend more time looking at it than whatever may be playing on the player (we don't have cable/broadcast TV).
