How to Give Good Critiques to Photos -Guide-

Video Photo Critiques
Photos MAY be used for video photo critiques and you will be notified via PM and photo comments if your photo was used in a video photo critique. You as a member are allowed to record your own video photo critique as long as you include photographers name or/and flickr user name (say it and show it on screen), and please in the introduction and outro include a link to the flickr group page, say you're doing this for the group.


RULES
--------------------------

Rule #1: Models Must be an Adult (18 years or older), and model may be Male or Female.

Rule #2: Photos must be somewhat "Family Friendly" as this group right now is public. (I'm not a big fan of that term I know... but just follow it and if there is a big demand for non-family friendly group similar to this group I'll create it) Meaning: NO Nudity, or implied photography, or violent/gore photography.

Rule #3: Keep photojournalism of people, people photography, street photography, true candid, or any type of photography that requires no control or influence of the photographer out of the photo pool, these genres are NOT model photography. That means Runway model photography, is NOT ALLOWED!

Rule #4: You must accept and allow all critiques onto your photo comments, no censorship. Only time its allowed is when its unconstructive. When it's considered unconstructive is when the user giving "constructive" critique does not give any form of detailed tips on how to improve the photo.

You must allow any users to critique any part of the photo, techinique watermark, composition, colors, post processing, facial expression, pose, model choice, lighting, location/background, anything... you may not limit or require people to only critique specific things of the photo, but you may ask people to specifically critique something specific, i.e. lighting, or/and composition.

If any complaints from anyone, staff will investigate this and give you a warning at first from private message via flickr mail, and you must respond to that message, if you do not we'll assume you did not read it and assume you don't care about the rules and remove you from the group.

Rule #5: When posting in the pool you must have EXIF information accessible to the public enabled. And when you do it must have all data available. Once you’ve submitted photos to the pool staff will review them and see if you have EXIF information properly set. This is very important for good and proper critiques to take place.

Ensure your EXIF data is showing at a minimum of the following information: ISO, Focal Length, Lens used, aperture, shutter (exposure), camera body, and program mode (manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, etc.).

Rule #6: If you don't agree to someone critique please be as respectful as possible when responding with a disagreement because when anyone critiques you're work they are not doing so for their own well being they are trying to help you in their opinions and based on their own experiences as a person. Please do not bicker and argue back and forth based on what is right and what is wrong.

Rule #7: DO NOT Submit photos that have multiple photos within that one photo submission please. EXIF Data can only come from one photo.

Rule #8: DO NOT submit the photos more than once unless admin approves it before the submission. If I and/or other admins sees an image more than once it will automatically be denied without notice and you will be warned of this behavior. This group isn't about getting views from fellow community members, it is a group to get honest, constructive, critiques, nothing else.

Invite Users to this Group
------------------------------------
After checking if they have EXIF enabled to the public viewing, you can post this into their photo comment section. And the photo you're about to comment in is model photography material (as explained above), is not adult content (nude) and the photo itself pretty much follows the rules then invite them.
