I really would be greatfull if there a seperate board for photography \ graphics related topics (If you feel the same please speak up :p

I dont have much of a clue but I believe this site is set into to many subcatergories , Yeah there all labelled well enough to identify which area there in but I have a tendency to get lost when looking for specific posts after time without bookmarking them as soon as I find

Anyways Rant over above was just my 2 cents Cheesy

Take Care All

Thanks
Peace

another board for photography would be great! photography is most deffinately an art form but it almost seems out of place in the more art less craft board everything in there is paintings and sketches and stuff photography seems to often be overlooked! i think the critisism would be more helpful if there was a board dedicated specificaly to photography and the people veiwing the board were looking specificaly for photographs! great idea!

Great idea! I would love to see a board for photography. It does seem to get overlooked, especially w/ all the paintings and other art in the 'more art, less craft' section.

I would for sure use this board A LOT. I've only made one photography post in the regular art board, but have been wanting to do more. I would love to get opinions on some recent work that I'll be putting on etsy soon.
I hope this spin off board happens  Smiley

It would also be great for photography related art.  I was looking up Polaroid image transfer and emulsion transfers and found what few results there were scattered among several different boards.

Photo board, photo board, rah rah rah!

I love seeing others' photography, but they do indeed seem out of place shoved in with pencil sketches and paintings. I would LOVE a separate child board for photography in the "more art, less craft" section.

Wow, I just joined and I was very sad to see that there are so many art/craft options and not one for photography! Huh

I think that a Photography option should be on the front home page with all the other options.  Then, when you click on the Photography listing, there could be subgroups in there such as ~

1.  Photography Feedback.
2.  Digital Photography Art.
3.  People Sharing Their Art and How To's, etc.

Those are just off the top of my head.  I'm sure the fine, crafty folk that run this site can come up with some great options under the Photography heading.

ah, that would be great! whenever i post my photography i get so excited cuz im so proud of it but then it gets like 2 or 3 posts... what a party pooper!

i would love a separate photography section! i have been doing photography for a few years now, i just discovered the wonderful world of digital cameras (although i still like my old miranda better) and i have taken too many classes to count! a board for all us photographers (and photoshoppers) would be much appreciated!

Add my vote!  Someone said something about the probability of lots of enhaced images, and I'm not sure if that was meant to be negative or not, but I don't see it as such.

People say it's not craft but it really is! You need to develop the 'eye' for it which relies on artistic ability.

 While it's along the same line, how would people feel about a sub-forum for digital art in the photography board?

Digital art is a whole extra realm that can go beyond photography. I think a separate board for it would be better, as I believe more than 75% of people who shoot digital do at least some photoshop touch ups on their images anyway.

 This is very true and I even do that myself. However (and this is just me talking), my opinion of digital art would be very definable. As in, it's quite obvious that a photo has been worked on in Photoshop/variants, not just touched up to make the picture look better/clearer, if you get what I mean?
 The reason why I thought it should be included in the photography sub board was because I think of it as a sort of evolution in photography and also because I have no idea as to who here would even like a digital art board! Smiley

 Same here! Tablets are expensive when you're unemployed!
And you're right by the way, not all digital art starts with a photo, that was merely my own introduction to Photoshop, hence my biased view lol Cheesy

This is the girl I did a collaboration painting with, {you can see the project on my profile page).

But her deviant art contains all kinds of stuff she's done. The one titled, "The Name's Bond..." is pure digital art. Black and white too, super cool.

(Can you tell I'm proud of her? Wink)

I searched all over, and didn't see one - but I'd love to see a photography board where we could post new techniques we are working on and get comments/critiques on photos we've taken.  I've recently "re-discovered" my SLR in attempt to make the pictures I take of my crafts look better (because when all you've got is your camera for sharing your work, you want to make it look its best!), and in the process have fallen in love with photography all over again, and I'm trying to learn as much as possible.  I think a board to share and learn from would be awesome!
