Proper Reporting
Here at deviantART we try to provide as much artistic freedom as possible and we strive for this by providing galleries to showcase a wide range of Art and by not forcing any strict quality standards or minimum level of skill or talent.
However while we do not moderate for “Quality” (keep your opinions to yourself) we do have certain restrictions and rules in place for a variety of legal and ethical reasons. But this article is not going to deal directly with official submission policy but about how you can utilize the tools available to bring things which you think are violations to the attention of the staff.
For submission violations we have provided a handy link on each deviation page to quickly and easily send a report of any deviation which you think breaks the rules or which you think the staff should seriously review.
Beneath every Deviation or Scrapbook submission you will find the Artist's description area. At the very bottom right of this boxed area you will find t

On copyright violations
Recently I've seen a rant crying about how DARE dA remove their artwork, because EVERYONE uses lyrics and other copyrighted stuff (backgrounds, photos, logos, etc) in their art! The user complains they are being picked on, because obviously the dA admins must not care if so many things with lyrics are uploaded.
You know what else everyone else does? Run stoplights. Why? Because they think they can get away with it. And a lot of people do. There simply aren't enough cops to watch every light.
It's the same thing with deviantART. People get away with copyright violations all the time, because the admins can't check every single deviation submitted. But you know what? That doesn't make it right. A cop will give you a ticket if he sees you run the light, and the admins will pull your stuff if it's reported.
It doesn't matter whether you think it's right. You agree to abide by the rules when you sign up, whether you bother to read them or not. Whether you agree with them or not. I've drawn

Pregnancy Photography

As elastic as the pregnant bodies they portray, these photos encompass and express the multiple dimensions of pregnancy and the many subtleties of the pregnant woman, from the archetypal to the idiosyncratic

-- Photographers Wanted ---
Are you bored? Do you own a digital camera? Well then this is the right place for you. photohunt is a game for all photographers. The rules are you are given a topic and then you have 20 minutes to go off and shoot it. ( the image must be new and taken within the 20 minutes) You then come back and do minor adjustments to it such as contrast and converting to black and white if u want. Then you thumb it in the chat and you are judged. If you win your shot will be posted in the :iconphotohunt: journal. Sound fun? Well it is. But beware it is addicting. So if you are ready to start hunting then stop by here ------>Photohunt Chat

Photo Journey *Macro Madness*
Welcome to the second issue of Photo Journey. In this issue we are going to have a look at macro photography.
Macro photography
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Macro photography refers to close-up photography; the classical definition that the image projected on the "film plane" (i.e film or a digital sensor)is the same size as the subject. On 35 mm film (for example), the lens must have the abilityto focus on an area at least as small as 24×36 mm, as this is the size of the image on the film. This is known as "life-size magnification" or simply 1:1.

In recent years, the term macro has been used in marketing material to mean being able to focus on a subject close enough so that when a regular 4×6 inch (102×152 mm) print is made, the image is life-size or larger. This requires a magnification ratio of only approximately 1:4, more easily attainable by lens makers.

Tutorial and Features: Landscape Photography
In the spirit of continuing to share insight and knowledge that I've learned from my experiences with photography, this will be my third tutorial on photographic subjects and techniques.  Previously I've submitted articles discussing digital camera noise (found HERE), and Neutral Density filters (found HERE).  I want to keep up with this, and hone it into a more helpful concept.  So this is the first one where I will try and provide a holistic coverage of a topic.  Today's topic is landscapes.

The most important factor of any landscape is focal range.  A landscape is characterized by a massive depth of field, that puts a vast and deep scene into sharp focus.  This is often overlooked by amateur photographers, who tr

Blood, boils, lipstick and latex.
Special effects make-up, prosthetics, theatrical costumery, expert lighting techniques and other out-of-the-ordinary pre-production and photographic techniques can help make a photograph into a memorable and terrifying masterpiece.  Whether you're creating unnatural skin-tones, using scary contact lenses, adding injuries and impalements to an otherwise undamaged body, or turning a model into a zombie or a werewolf, creating horror photography with special effects techniques takes a lot of skill, practice and patience (just as creating realistic horrific photomanipulations does).
As Hallowe'en edges ever closer and artists' minds turn to darker things, the Horror & Macabre Photography gallery begins to swell uncomfortably with snapshots of people in their costumes.  Instead of posting snapshots, get artistic with your photos!  You've already put all that effort into creating amazing costumes and make-up, why not try creating amazing photographs of those cos

Jury Finds Unauthorized Use of Photo=Fair Use
This can affect everyone but people like :iconcweeks: could really be impacted by something like this travisty.
From the PhotoAttorney website - http://www.photoattorney.coml
This all starts back in January of this year....

Editorial Use May Not Always Be Fair Use
Copyright law includes the doctrine of "fair use" that allows unauthorized use of copyrights in certain circumstances. The courts recognize that free expression and avoiding law suits over minor issues are more important than protecting intellectual property rights. The doctrine of fair use means that copying will not infringe a copyright when it is "for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship or research."
Newspapers generally use copyrighted materials freely, depending on fair use. But they may have gone too far this time.

Hello! I be Donna, feel free to use my real name, i'm not one of those paranoid types ;)

Primarily I'm an alternative portrait and wedding photographer, a mum of 2 amazing kids and married to my irish toyboy (win!)

But i'm also the Community Volunteer for the Artistic Nude gallery here on dA, i have a passion for amazing, eyecatching, thoughful, inspirational photography and i'm very proud to be able to show you some of the fantastic art that is created and posted here right in this little corner of cyberspace.

i am always ALWAYS happy to impart advice on photography, life and the universe. i am also very good at sniffing out the latest dArama and rolling around in its dirty mess and getting its stink all over me. oh yes, i can be relied upon to provide the lulz. in fact, i think some of my watchers watch me for that very reason. why? because its a website, and as much as i love my friends and my art, it amuses me to see how much people consider it to be the be-all-and-end-all of life, like the opinion of someone 3000 miles away means so much to them.
