FotoFriday with CRliterature

Fri Mar 22, 2013, 3:07 AM
Hello there!

My name is Becca and I am one of the literature community volunteers! Your photography CVs have kindly allowed me to hijack their journal space so I can ask for your assistance in a project we are re-launching on deviantART via our group CRLiterature

The project is called "FotoFriday" and the concept is simple- every fortnight on a Friday, we will post a photograph by a photographer on deviantART and use it as a writing prompt. Writers can write whatever they like using this photograph as the base of the inspiration- it can be poetry, prose, a script or even a drabble- anything! This is a really exciting and open prompt and in the past has had some great success!

However, we feel its a little bit cheeky to go around and use photographs without permission. Therefore we are approaching you guys to create a "photographers directory" of people who will allow us to nose in their galleries and use your photograph (with full credit given). This is a fantastic way to extend your exposure on deviantART through another community!

What do we need from you?

All we need is a list of deviants who are happy for us to look through your gallery! 

If you are happy for us to view your gallery for potential photos, please can you comment on this journal stating:

1. You are happy for your photographs to be used this way.
2. Any limitations (i.e. don't use any photos of my cat).

If we select your photo, we will let you know and link you directly to the FotoFriday journal! This will mean you can see what our writers come up with! :)

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask on this journal!

:star: Also, we invite you all to come and have a go! Writing prompts like this are a great way for people to explore a new craft and we welcome anyone who wants to have a go! Watch CRLiterature for updates and information for these prompts!

Thank you

Feel free to use my stock account: :iconalphasoupstock: I love seeing people use my stuff as inspiration! :love:

There are lots of hedgehog pictures, but I photograph many things. I'm no professional, but I hope to be of use to someone, and perhaps get some of my under-appreciated entries some love.

I will also allow people to use my images as preview images, altered or not, as long as they link back to my stock account. I also like it when people send me the link to their final product, though it's not necessary. Full rules and contact can be found here if you are curious: [link]
