CR's Heart of Photography

Welcome to CRPhotography!

CRPhotography is home to the Photography Community Volunteers and any other members who are involved or interested in photography.

You do not have to be a professional, or even a photographer, to take part in the masses of fun we have here in this group!

We aim to support members of the photography community in a variety of ways, through announcements, editorials, critique, contests, fun and games, promotion and much more!

So, if you are interested in receiving a lot from us, making a difference in the photography community or anything else, click the :+devwatch: button on the side and join right up! :dalove:

Our February Theme is Darkroom!

What is Darkroom Photography?

"While most photography galleries on dA have pieces that are judged based on the merit of the technical aspects in-camera, darkroom invariably takes it a step further and considers how it looks as a finished unit - a slide, a print - and as such, submitting to darkroom is like saying "this is my work as it should be viewed in real life". By putting work in the darkroom gallery, you're making the statement to viewers that the way you processed the photo is as important as the subject, in terms of making the shot express itself in a specific way."

Community Volunteers:
Mrs-Durden, tiganusi, RockstarVanity

Submit Suggestions for Daily Deviations!

Many of our wonderful Daily Deviations come from suggestions made by the community. If you think a piece deserves to be a Daily Deviation, suggest it to one of our Photography Community Volunteers! Self-Suggestions are also welcome.

:note: Today's Daily Deviations!

:note: Make sure the deviant has not received a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
