Deviants

Welcome to Soft-Stills!

Welcome to Soft-Stills! :heart:
This is a group that displays photography of a small and particular niche - that of Still Life and Macro shots. Submissions must additionally have a soft touch to them - that means blurry backgrounds, bokeh and delicate focusing.

Why Should I Join?
As the Founder and only person that takes care of this group, I try to keep up a certain standard in the photography you can find here. This makes it both a group you might want to follow to keep yourself updated with the beautiful macro and still-life submissions of our members, and also one to submit your own photography which can too be a part of the showcase! :heart:

The Rules for Submitting
:bulletred: Photography only - no photo-manipulation (i.e. two or more photos used in one deviation, such as layering on bokeh; post-processing in software such as PS is perfectly fine.)
:bulletorange: Must fit into the theme of this group - it must be a still life or macro shot (which can have a concept behind it), which is also soft, delicate and pleasing! Photos with human involvement or live plants and flowers will be declined.
:bulletyellow: Submit to the correct folder!
:bulletgreen: 1 deviation per day, which is subject to one vote before approval. Choose from your very best! Please do not get offended or upset if your work is not accepted as what appeals to me does not apply to everyone :)
:bulletblue: No elaborate watermarks - especially the deviantArt one. We all wan't to admire photos, not the dA symbol ^^
:bulletpurple: If your work was declined and you can't understand why or are curious as to why, feel free to ask for feedback! I will be more than pleased to reply ^^
:bulletpink: Join group requests automatically accepted!

Looking forward to all your lovely submissions! I can't wait to come across more awesome photographers and beautiful Soft-Stills! :heart:

Group Info

This is a group dedicated to wonderful photography. Specifically, it features Still Lifes and Macro shots (which can also be conceptual) with a soft touch to them - that means blurry backgrounds and great depth of field, bokeh and delicate focusing. :heart:

For anybody who might be looking through the page and considering whether to join or not - I'd like to let you all know this group is still, in fact, 100% active and your submissions will not be left to expire as is the case with many other groups currently.

It's still a growing group - so keep joining, submitting your work, and be inspired by the gallery of wonderful photos!

The Founder :heart:
