About Snow Portrait
Stunning photographic portraits of people with snow as a central theme to the frame.
Photographs should specifically be portraits, rather than just pictures of people in / around snow. Please keep in mind that this is a portrait group, and is not a place for snapshots; consideration should be taken in both the creation of the image, and posting to this group. Definition of a portrait is taken right from Wikipedia: "A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer."
While snowy wildlife photography is lovely, people are the subject of this group, though animals may be part of the image so long as the person is still the main subject.
Snow must be real - no fake snow or any digital addition of snow to a scene which didn't have any. Be honest.
Snow must be a central theme in the image. If it is not, or is not obviously snowy, these pictures will be removed from the pool.
Nudity is allowed, but it must be "tastefully artistic." Use your best judgement.
Be respectful - choose only the images you are most proud of to add to the pool. Give everyone a chance for their images to be enjoyed.
You don't have to comment or favorite or any of that nonsense, but if you see something you like, you're encouraged to do so. This is what makes the Flickr community so strong. There's no comment code or anything like that, because we at Snow Portraits feel that such things clutter a picture's comments.
Finally - have fun!
Any images not following these rules will be removed from the group, in order to keep the pool true to the group title.
