All join requests are subject to approval.
Please make sure that in your gallery you have a separate folder titled "Macro and Closeup", and in it the work you are most proud of. We check all applicant's artwork before we make a decision.
If you have no such folder, it is possible that we will have difficulties locating your best work and decline your application.
We will only approve new members with galleries containing at least 15 high quality macro photographs (that follow our submission rules - see bellow)
However, in rare cases of galleries with fewer shots but outstanding overall quality, we may accept them for membership at our discretion.
If you don't have any macros in your gallery, but you're interested in our group's updates, you can watch us and enjoy the updates a member would receive, but without being able to submit.
If your membership request was rejected, it doesn't mean you are banned forever from this group! You may reapply when you have a sufficient amount of quality macros in your gallery.
Please spare a few minutes to take a look around our gallery and see the standard of the works we accept before you're asking questions regarding your rejection.
Members can submit 1 deviation/month to each category. Contributors 3 deviations/month. All submissions are subject to approval.
Submit your photo to the appropriate category.
Submit only macro and close-up photos with magnification over 1:2
You're allowed to submit human macro, but no mature content.
Do not submit close-up shots of drawings, paintings, photos or text.
The macro shot must be taken by you! We will not accept stock photos with some color, contrast or other changes.
Photos that contain textures, dA logo, or any other kind of manipulation are going to be rejected.
We do not accept diptychs, triptychs or any kind of photo collages.
Reasons for rejection:
Your photo was submitted to the wrong folder.
Your photo has a magnification below 1:2.
Your photo has a lack of focus and/or detail, is underexposed, overexposed, too noisy or has a general bad quality, wrong composition, disturbing elements in the background on the shot or the lack of cut in these case.
Your photo contains mature content, a texture, a stock photo or is heavily manipulated.
All our decisions are final.
Our admins vote on all submissions, and while we have general guidelines regarding technical quality, we also take into account artistic merit.
You may enquire under your submission as to why it was rejected, and we will do our best to answer. However, any argumentativeness or insults in response to our decisions will not be tolerated and may result in a permanent ban.
