Group Description

PhotoCrawl Idaho is about exploration, refinement of vision, experimentation, inspiration, and just plain getting out with other photographers to photograph and have fun.

PhotoCrawl is held every 2 months in the Boise/Treasure Valley area, each in a different location to expand and challenge your vision and skill. Participation in a PhotoCrawl is Free and open to photographers of all skill levels.

Membership (and photo submissions) to this group are restricted to PhotoCrawl participants and PhotoCrawl events only. Images are viewable to the public and non-members are able to comment.

Just to clarify the membership process for the PhotoCrawl Flickr Group. Membership grants you upload privileges, which is restricted to PhotoCrawl participants only. I want to maintain a pool of relevant images to each event, not open it up to general uploads. Limiting the uploads to participants gives us all a better look at how different people view relatively the same thing when photographed at about the same time. Adding photos from different periods of time or location would dilute that.

If you've been on a PhotoCrawl and want to submit images, contact the group owner for an invite.

Group Rules

PhotoCrawl is all about having fun, exploration, expanding vision, learning, sharing, meeting other photographers, experimenting and challenging ourselves to see more clearly and be more aware.

This PhotoCrawl Group pool is open for photo upload only to participants of PhotoCrawl events and membership is restricted to the participants of the event. However, viewing photos and commenting on photos is open to the public.

If you would like to be added to an email list to be notificed of the next PhotoCrawl event, please let me know.

To that end, please follow these simple guidelines:

1. PhotoCrawl Idaho is about photos created during specific PhotoCrawl Idaho events. Photos posted to the group pool should be those image created during a specific PhotoCrawl event. If any photo is found to have been created outside this boundary, it will be removed.

2. Feedback is encouraged. Be constructive. This is a learning experience for many, so provide feedback that the photographer can learn from. That way, we all learn something. If you like or don't like a photo, say why with specifics (exposure, focus, lens choice, composition/cropping, lighting, expression, point of view, subject, subject matter, post-processing treatment, etc.).

3. When you post a photo, please include any technical and/or creative or inspirational information you would like to pass on to others. This is a learning experience, after all.

4. If you post a photo, stay, browse, and leave a comment.

5. There is an unlimited photo upload limit. However, please keep your photos restricted to PhotoCrawl events.

5a. When uploading photos from a particular PhotoCrawl event, please tag them with the followig tags:

monthyear of the event (example: March2008)
Location (example: Boise) The official location will be provided in event announcements.

6. Digital manipulation and other interpretations of photographs created during PhotoCrawl are acceptable.

7. This is an unrestricted group, but ensure the photos you submit are "work safe". Many people may view this group at work. If you would feel uncomfortable having your photo on your monitor at work, you probably shouldn't post it.

8. It's a Small World, Afterall. Be aware that people from many cultures will view the photos in this group and what may be considered art in the U.S. may be illegal somewhere else. Be respectful of that.

9. Don't abuse the group to advertise your stuff. Besides being against Flickr TOS, it's SPAM and not the purpose of this group.

10. Be nice. Be constructive. Have fun.

11. post photographs that aren't yours. Respect copyright laws and the rights of other artists. It's recommended to watermark your photo unless you post under the creative commons license.

12. Along those lines, don't lift images from this group for blogs, emails, or other embellishments without permission of the photographer.

13. Don't post abusive, derogatory or flaming comments. Take it outside. Offenders will be warned, then removed. Serial offenders will be banished.

14. If a photo is removed, don't re-post it.

That's enough, don't you think? Have we covered all the bases, dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's? I guess we'll find out.

Enjoy yourself, have fun, be creative, and let's see where this goes.
