A little encouragement from Neil. Really go watch it.

:bulletred: Winter Theme Folder is now closed.

:bulletgreen: Summer Theme Folder is now open!!! Remember the submissions must still follow rules.

:bulletred: Reminder, I think we seriously need to stop taking close ups of flowers. Macros and Micros would be better but I need you guys to stop taking the easy way with your submissions and start thinking out of the box more. That was the whole point of the club, to help people think out of the box. Close ups have been sliding by on technicality but now it is starting to look like the Flower Club around here. So that being said, will I still be taking those kinds of submissions? Probably not. You are going to have to work harder and "wow" me if you are going to send them in. OK?
Also, for those who send in portrait photos every week- portraits shots no matter how the subject is dressed is NOT a perspective shot. Stop sending them, I am losing respect for you as an artist.


For Newbies
:bulletblue:This is a club in which the pictures you submit must have a interesting perspective. This could be something shot at a noticeable angle (such as a Dutch Angle), an extreme close up/macro, tilt shift/bokeh or reflection.
Basically it is just shooting or editing a photo to make it look as if it is taken from some way OTHER than the head on way we normally see them at eye level point of view. What we mean by a " interesting perspective" is more how-this-picture-was-taken than conceptual. Yes, it might be a kind of perspective to conceptualize but that isn't what we are about. Another example of something being accepted into the gallery is editing to have an interesting angle: for example, flipping a picture upside down, sideways, or any other noticeable or extreme rotation. But having said all that, there is still a chance work will not be accepted because it might be on the boarder line of what is and isn't accepted, poor photography, bad subject matter or in my opinion, it is just not good. If your work isn't accepted, don't freak out, it is not a personal judgment on you. Just try again with something else.


For visual examples:

:bulletred: Also, I have said before, please do not submit other people's work to our gallery, favorites or any folder. A few times I accepted it then upon realizing the mistake had to go back an delete it. But the part that is seriously pissing me off is most of the time the people who are submitting other's work, the art has nothing to do with perspective art! For goodness sake get a clue already! If you would like to recommend to your artist friends to join our club then by all means do so. If you want to recommend to a fellow club member to submit art to a theme week or contest, again go right ahead and tell them.

But if people do not start to read and follow the rules, there is going to be trouble.

Any questions?

:bulletred: What will be Accepted
Perspectate art could be something shot at a noticeable angle (such as a Dutch Angle), an extreme close up/macro, bokeh or reflection. Basically it is just shooting or editing a photo to make it look as if it is taken from some way OTHER than the head on way we normally see them at eye level point of view. What we mean by a " interesting perspective" is more how-this-picture-was-taken than conceptual. Yes, it might be a kind of perspective to look at something conceptually but we are more about visual than conceptual. Also, based on this criteria most macros do get accepted but not all close ups (depending on the nature). It helps you to know the difference. An example of something being accepted into the gallery is editing a picture to have an interesting angle: for example, flipping a picture upside down, sideways, or any other noticeable or extreme rotation.
But mostly we are a club about having fun with art!

If your art is not accepted please accept that.
Questions asking why it was not submitted will be addressed but please don't argue about it.
Chances are if its rejected its because it doesn't fit what we are looking for. It is not personal.
Please be selective about what you submit, if you really don't think it is good or definitely not following club theme, why would you give it to us?

P.S. Please, please, please do not send in 3 very similar (or the same)pictures!

:bulletred: Rules

We ask that only THREE submission per day, per member.
Your art can be photos or drawings/paintings. Possibly other media if it fits in somehow with the club theme of perspective. I don't know what that might be yet but hey, give it a try.

Please be courteous to your fellow members. When giving comments, please be Helpful not Hurtful.

Yes but I had to take some time off. Life gets in the way of art sometimes.

Well, if your trajectory seems to trigger a faulty guidance system, try setting new parameters for a new destination. The "spaceship" we're currently in is a little broken... you know.
