It's all about taste.
Taste differs from one person to the next, but one thing to remember when submitting to this group is that we value quality over quantity.
This is a club that celebrates the art of self-portrait photography/drawing, etc.

So we have to ask ourselves, what makes a good self-portrait?

* From a general standpoint, a "good" self-portrait is one in which we can see your face. However, this may not always apply, depending upon the quality of the piece.

* A nice, clear photography piece that has been taken in good lighting and with good taste.
- This most likely includes photos that utilize the rule of thirds (who wants to see inartistically cut off faces?)

* A photography piece that is not too busy in the background.
- A webcam picture showcasing all the junk in your room behind you is a good example of what NOT to submit.
- If you're standing in front of the Eiffel Tower and there's a lot of people around you, that's probably okay.

* A drawing/digital art piece (etc) that, to put it kindly, does not look like a 5 year old drew it.

Next time you submit, ask yourself if your piece matches most of these descriptions. This isn't about putting people down - it's about helping to develop your level of artistry so that you may become better at what you do.

So show us your best work! We want to see it. :D

Best wishes,
lovelikeangels
If you want to be a contribuitor on this group you have to let as know the reason for applying. We don't have a certain number of how many contribuitors shall enter to our family... so do your very best.


We also like you to know that the reason we don't have any more contribuitors is that they didn't do what any contribuitor has to do. They didn't do the job that they apply for.


Anyway... I'd like to thank :iconlovelikeangels: and :iconrpgirl: for supporting me all this time. From now on they are Co-founders of this group.



Good luck everyone!
We are trying to become a Super Group.

Please help us!

:iconmoxmonica: has started a donnation pool. So if you have any spare points, we'll really appreciate your donation!

For every point you give, i will give you a feature on #Self-Portrait-Club. You may do this more than once!


*When the goal is reached each and every one who has contribute here will be featured in my journal and in a news article.

Because we are not a Super Group we can not feature the thumb because the picture would not be displayed. Instade we'll put links.

wow look at these "self"-portraits!! I thought something's only considered as a self-portrait when the photographer and the model is the same person... but in your folders there are a lot of photos that are only portraits.. because a photo taken by another person is not a self-portrait anymore. the model is not struggling with making all the right adjustments then making a perfect pose or face... so you just accept simple portraits and decline real self-portraits...
congratulations self-portrait-club, you're doin it wrong.

If it's "all about taste" then why are people with good photos getting declined when they follow all your rules? I know alot of other people want to know and it sucks that you're either not answer them or not answering them publicly. You should be able to give them legitimate reasons if you're going to go ahead and decline them. I've seen stuff in your galleries that doesn't look like quality work, while stuff that does doesn't get accepted. Explain it to me because there's obviously something I'm not understanding here and it seems like alot of other people would like to know why as well. And just one more question to throw out there, why bother letting people become members when you're not going to accept any of their stuff? They can just be watchers if you don't want to let them successfully submit art. 

~Sincerely, Ca me merde~

same thoughts here. i got like the 20th picture declined today (i don't consider myself as an awesome photographer, but i've seen worse pictures here like mine...). yes, groups work by taste of owners. kinda shame...

It's just irritating because they put a criteria there and they don't go by it, they just accept things that they apparently like (some I don't see why). Maybe they're bribed or something. I think it's irritating that they don't accept some quality photos but they accept ones that are less than exception, by far. 
I'm glad that I'm not the only one who feels this way.

It is all about taste.  And they have bad taste.  I'd like to know why mine was declined yet something with blown out highlights and awful color balance was accepted- and it was nothing special either.  Apparently you do the OPPOSITE of what they say to get accepted.

Evidently they have bad taste because I've seen plenty of shitty pictures accepted. I don't mean to be a total douche but it's just not fair. Glad that many people are in agreement with me about this group's management. They ignore the comments that are anywhere near negative or disciplinary.
