A Warm Welcome!

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 22, 2015, 1:39 AM
A warm welcome to our new (and "old") Co-Admin's in r72 :iconr72: Infrared Photography Group!

You all have full access to the admin area now!

What you can do for r72?

Recruiting new members

A group would be nothing without its members and of course we're interested in having an inflow of talented artists into our group. There are two ways of recruiting people: You can either send an invitation by clicking the Invite a Friend button on our main page or suggest to in a comment or note that r72 may be the right kind of group for their infrared pictures.

Adding pictures to our galleries

As an admin you can not only submit your own work unlimited to the group, but also pictures created by others. If you add pictures which were created by a member of our group, it may be a good idea to add only his / her best photographs.

Voting on submissions

When a member submits a picture, every admin gets a group message which allows him / her to vote on whether or not the picture should be accepted. Before you vote in favor of a picture, please make sure it conforms to our submission requirements on our main page. If you vote decline, you may want to leave a comment for the other admins in which you briefly explain your decision. In case you cast the deciding vote, please leave a comment for the artist which explains the group's decision. In this situation comments left by other admins may come in handy.

Using the Featured folder

All member submissions first go into the actual month folder.

Using the Faves folder

The Faves folder only serves to showcase the best IR shots that can be found on deviantART. It doesn't matter whether these pictures were created by members of our group or not. So if you come across a really outstanding infrared picture, you may want to suggest it for the Faves folder using the Suggest a Fave button on our Faves page.

Writing blogs

Blogs are a great way of staying in touch with our members. If you come across some interesting information on IR photography, posting it in a blog entry may be a good idea. If you wish to conduct an interview, announce a contest, or something else which requires some organizational effort, please discuss it with the other admins first.

We are looking for new admins

Dear members,

The r72 infrared photography group is currently looking for people
who are interested in becoming part of the administrator team.
We are doing this because some of the “old” admins have become too occupied with other tasks,
and also to enrich the group with new ideas. As an admin of r72 your main responsibilities would be the following:

- Participate in the voting process by which we select the photographs which make it into our gallery.
This involves writing an explanatory message to members whose submission was declined.
- Compile the monthly “Best of” feature (we take turns, so you don’t have to do it every month).
- Discuss current topics with the other admins.
- Keep your eyes open for good IR pictures and potential new members of the group.

You don’t have to be a professional photographer who has been shooting infrared pictures
since before it was considered cool.
However, some experience is clearly called for,
since you are expected to assess the work of others
and to provide feedback.
If you’re interested in becoming part of our admin team,
please write a note to the group, comment here, or contact us directly per note.

General Informations - Rules for r72 Group

New members are welcomed!

Members submit their genuine infrared photographs to our submission folder, which is named after the current month. The submission limit is ten (10!) pictures per week. Photographs which are accepted by the admins in a voting process are later moved to the appropriate gallery folders (e.g. "Magic Trees").

Please indicate in the description of the deviation what ir technique you used - e.g. filter, converted camera, other.

Reasons for declining a submission include:
- Bad lighting conditions
- Over- or underexposures
- Lack of sharpness
- Poor compositions
- Disturbing watermarks (e.g. big dA watermark, or watermark in center of image)
- Non-infrared images or a non infrared "feeling" in the pictures

By declining an image we do not want to discourage your work or your future submissions. Please spend time in our galleries and feel free to ask questions about techniques used to achieve images that impress you.

The making of infrared photos you can find in our tutorial gallery folder -->>… and in gilad's journal -->>… .

867 members, 1.143 watchers - support tends to zero... :-(
Argolith Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
It is my perception that we are getting less feedback on polls and journals than we used to. There's still a constant stream of submissions, but the majority of them are coming from a small number of people. I'm not complaining, but if anyone has suggestions on how to improve the participation of our members, please let me know.

I have no clue... People seem to be bored...
