Mission Statement: “To share our works and knowledge to foster discussion that explores the art of photography.” ENCOURAGED: [✓] Posts aiming to start a discussion or to ask a photography-related question. ex: Camera Reviews: Nikon D750 vs Canon 5Diii - http://www.vingle.net/posts/631329 ex: Monterey Is Amazing - http://www.vingle.net/posts/621311 [✓] Photographs that drive a discussion about the technique, style, and subject. (should include title and description). ex: Baton Rouge UrbEx 2 - http://www.vingle.net/posts/548055 ex: Jonas Yip: Somewhere Between - http://www.vingle.net/posts/330731 DISCOURAGED: [X] Posts without sufficient context (location, technique, purpose, equipment, etc.) and low-effort posts may be removed. [X] Posts that would be more valuable in other communities. For example, a photo of a beautiful beach is more appropriate in the “nature” community if it does not add value beyond just being a beautiful image. [X] Posts with blogspam, ads, and unnecessary links. [X] Photography that is not properly credited to the original creator is not allowed. If anyone believes more guideline needs to be added, or if anyone disagree with any of these ideas, please say so in the comments or message me or the community staff. Optimal image width on the Vingle platform is 600 pixels. Remember to keep the conversation constructive! Happy shooting!
@sherrysahar Great question! Posting images of a famous location alone is not enough for any community. If you share images and write about them in the context of photography in a way that is beneficial to the community, then they are okay to be in the photography community. If you post the images of the location in travel, your writing should support some sort of travel focus. For example, lets say you share images of New York. You can talk about how you took the NY images and why you framed the images the way you did; this would belong in the photography community. Conversely, you could take images of NY and talk about your travel experience; this would belong in the travel community.
