    Please Read Prior to Posting - People Section Rules

    This has been a bit of topic for debate so I wanted to make sure the staff had time to think and discuss it before Convergent, Zacker, and I made our decision based on the good of the forum, the direction we want to the forum to proceed, and where the forums initial intent was.

    This is certainly not saying there arent legit forms of glamour and nude photography, but as this is a family friendly forum, they dont have a place here. With that we are going to stray away from doing any form of glamour on this site. Because of the fact we are "family friendly" even photos such as "not so racy" ones are a bit much for the intention of having children be active on the site.

    To be specific (per the definitions below) on what we will and will not allow... we will allow fashion photography as long as the images are used to portray a product and not the human body as the center of attention. With that will be the exclusion of swimwear photography or lingerie photography which even in the intention of product photography will be considered over and beyond the rules.

    This section will still allow the posting of "street photography", "portraiture of a non-glamour style", as well as any previous types posted and accepted.

    Definitions per Photography.com
    Glamour photography is a sexy, romantic form of photography meant to be erotic without being pornographic. Posing for glamour shots has been common for models and movie stars for years. Because of glamour photography’s allure, many advertisements use glamour photography to catch people’s eyes and interest.


    Fashion Photography is the area of photography that concentrates on taking pictures of clothing or accessories (on models or alone) to be published in fashion magazines, advertisements or circulated among designers.[/quote]
