What galleries do I feature from?
I'm a Community Volunteer for General Photography, alongside tiganusi

All of Photography > Darkroom Photography > Commercial EXCEPT FOR Commercial > Fashion All of Photography > Still Life All of Photography > Architecture All of Photography > Transportation All of Photography > Urban and Rural All of Photography > Abstract and Surreal Photography > Conceptual Photography > Humor Photography > Fireworks Photography > Infrared Photography > Other Some of Photography > People and Portraits. More specifically, Body Art, Classic Portraits, Emotive Portraits, Expressive, Infants and Children, Self-Portraits, Spontaneous Portraits, Weddings,
What am I looking for in a Daily Deviation?Perceived popularity, or lack thereof, is irrelevant
to me. I don't mind if a piece has 1 view or 1,000 views (or more) and I don't mind if it has been fav'd or collected a lot already. These things really don't matter to me. It's lovely to be able to shine a spotlight on lesser-known artists but the level of exposure a piece of art has already had won't affect whether or not I choose to feature it.In short, I'm looking for amazing photography
, the kind of image that makes your jaw drop when you see it. I love strong, atmospheric and sometimes challenging art with a strong message and often lean toward the unconventional and subversive. My personal experience and taste tends toward People & Portraits, but suggestions from all relevant galleries will be considered equally.
How to suggest a Daily Deviation to meI can't DD people who've had a DD within the last six months. To check if someone has had a DD recently, read FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation? I also can't DD art by people who haven't logged in within the last 30 days, but if you're not sure if this applies to the artist whose work you'd like to suggest, send it anyway and I'll check it out.Please send your suggestion to me by NOTE
(one suggestion per note), including a thumbnail of the piece. You're welcome to explain why you think that particular photograph would be suitable as a DD, but you don't have to. For instructions on embedding thumbnails in notes, check out FAQ #511: How do I post thumbnails of my art on the Chat Network or Forums?Only send a suggestion to ONE Community Volunteer
. Sending it to a bunch of us just gets confusing and doesn't make your suggestion any more likely to be featured. I read every single note sent to me but due to the volume of suggestions received for General Photography, I'll only reply if I'm going to feature your suggestion or if I have something specific to ask you.You are absolutely welcome to suggest your own work
for a Daily Deviation. I view self-suggestions the same way as I view work suggested by others. It makes literally no difference to me and if your self-suggested work is featured, it won't be possible for anyone to tell that you suggested it yourself.
