3rd Collaborative Project : Submissions Please

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 2, 2014, 9:14 AM
ANNOUNCEMENT :  Our third collaborative project "PEOPLE AND FLOWERS" is open to non-members.  Any deviant may contribute a photographic image to this collaborative project.

This will be our Third venture in our Collaboration project.

We consider this our unique experiment in Global Collaborative work. Our members here at Photoseries come from diverse cultural, ethnic backgrounds with a vast diversity of styles.

The main idea is to create a Photographic Series that is the combined contribution of artists from all over the world.  The concept is very simple

The Series will be seeded by a single image, is Image will be placed in a folder called "Collaborative Experiment".

Members are requested to contribute single images to this folder that they feel extend the basic image into a series.

Hopefully with contributions we will chose a number of images that combine to make the best series.  However we might end up with more than just one series.

The Subject of the third Collaborative Project is  "People And Flowers"

Hello, and Welcome to #PhotoSeries

I am Jenny Stokes.........a lot of you know me very well. This a group for the submission of SERIES of photographs. Instead of being able to submit one image at at time, as for most groups, you submit between 3 and 6 images at once, as a theme, or as a narrative.

This is my first try at Founding a Group, so please bear with us and don't be afraid to ask questions, or suggest a different Folder. This Group could NEVER have happened without ALL the help I have had from
TusharBoss and Bumblepuss. They are both wonderful people and I hope you will take time to 'browse' their wonderful art. (Bobby, sad to say for us, although still a member of the group, has relinquished his Co-founder status due to other commitments)

Our team comprises of

jennystokes as Founder

InayatShah as Co-Founder
Coolerama as Co-Founder
ZeeShiKing as Co-Founder
Vodj as Co-Founder
Solar Encoded as Co-Founder
gigi50 as Co-Founder
PatriceChesse as Co-Founder
SabakuNoShi as Co-Founder
NB-PhotoArt as Co-Founder

I love this idea: Many times, as some of you know, I have done Series of pics from one event, then had to break them all up. I found this to be truly annoying! An Event is an Event and the pics should stay together. In this Group you can now do this. Hurrah!

I look forward to seeing you all submit.
Please read the rules carefully.

For more detailed guidelines on what this group is about and how to go about submitting your wonderful work, see the more detailed notes on this page with regards to submission and membership

Meanwhile, enjoy our current Featured selection. This Month it is a selection from our Strip Image submissions.

Thank you all members for your wonderful contributions.

Submission Rules and Guidelines

Have you ever wished you could submit a series of photos all taken at the same event into the one place, instead of having to split them up to suit different categories ? Well now you can. It doesn't matter whether they are black and white, HDR, photos of people, or machinery, or general views of the event. If they were taken as part of a series at the same event or place, and fit into one of our categories shown below, send them all to us. No more having to sort them into different categories, or send them to different folders, just send them all to us (all we ask is that you submit a minimum of 3 photos and a maximum of 6 photos in a series).
