Hi Everyone,

Some of the older members of our Club may remember the founder of Perspectate, Jason Foster aka Plutonicfluf

Jason passed away 5 years ago and the world lost a true artist. Jason was a smart, funny person who was a very creative photographer and expressed that creativity here on DA. Through the Perspectate club,  Jason encourage and challenged other photographers to think outside of the visual “box” and work to see things anew in different ways. I was one of the people he challenged and it made me a better photographer for it.

As it has been 5 years since Jason’s passing, his Uncle Alex put this video together and his parents posted it on Vimeo.  They also posted links to his music and the Jason Foster Youth Memorial Fund, which helps teens take the Youth Empowerment Seminar (YES!) – read more

If you remember Jason or if you are just reading about him now for the first time, I would encourage you to watch the video. It features many styles of his art and his music. It is a fitting memorial to both him and his talent. Maybe it will even inspire you.

In the words of Neil Gaiman, “Do what only you do best. Make good art.”

:bulletred: Submitting your art

To submit art, you need to be a member. We do not take submissions or Favorite suggestions/submissions from non-members. Please do NOT submit other people's work. Then go to the Gallery called Featured. Make sure your photo is acceptable to the club theme as described in the "About Us" section. When in the gallery called Featured, in the upper right hand area you will see Submit to This Gallery. Click it and then chose between New or Existing Deviation and follow the appropriate steps. Do not resubmit if it is not accepted right away or if it is declined.

: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.
