:iconcommunityrelations: Welcome!

This month the general photography CVs - Kaz-D, Mrs-Durden, and myself - set a total of 88 DDs! World domination is coming along nicely! :pringles: Many thanks to everyone who's suggested to us, and as always we need more suggestions so don't be shy! Our guidelines are linked at the bottom of this article, and we tend to get a lot more People and Portraits suggestions than anything else so bonus points if you send us great pieces from the "weird" galleries. Self-suggestions are always welcome if you have a piece of your own that you think we should see!

My Daily Deviation Highlights, v1

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 20, 2015, 12:34 PM

The Intro

Mrs-Durden got the idea that we could boost the penetration of DDs to our watchers by posting some of our favourite DDs featured by people other than us in the last bit (and you can post one of these too, so get posting; not only CVs can get in on the fun). I said "Nina y u do" and then looked at the last week of DDs and found lots of great stuff, so here's my take on the theme!

Nina is angry today.

Check out Nina's journal at this link - My Daily Deviation Highlights - and then join the party!

Photography exposed is a brand new series of articles brought to you by your General Photography Community Volunteers! Kaz-DMrs-Durden and tiganusi are going to be exposing the popular and the not so popular galleries within main Photography gallery here on DeviantArt. For this ninth edition I've chosen to focus on Commercial > Products and Commercial > Services, the niches of photography that deal with selling their subjects!

Chinese Collar by sharadhaksar

What Is It?

"Photographs taken to portray a product for the purpose of selling."
"Photographs that depict a service or business that are taken for the purposes of promotion."

Commercial photography is one of the "overarching" categories - along with photojournalism, fine art and vernacular photography - that people use to define the purpose of the shot. Photojournalism tells a story, fine art photography appeals to artistic standards and makes good wall art, vernacular photography is casual and every wannabe photographer can approach it. Commercial photography is pretty and can tell a story, but first and foremost it tells you about the subject.

Untitled by HALFMAX

The difference between commercial photography and photojournalism is that photojournalism tells a story about something that happened or is happening, while commercial tells a story of a business or product and why you need it. Well executed product photographs - packshots and shots of products being used are the most common types - are advertising-worthy displays of the product and its virtues; service photography does the same thing for less tangible subjects, like florists or chefs or theatre troupes.


Artist | Professional

[The above is a found poem biography/artist's statement made of animated gifs. Oops.]

I'm C "Mark" Perry, the picture-taking former Gallery Moderator, now Community Volunteer for Photography who proselytizes about pringles, pandas and polaroids. In meatspace I worked as a designer and staff photographer for several years, then swapped into marketing management; I still freelance, show and sell my work but I don't like to talk about it. I'm a once-upon-a-time lit kid who's had a poem/editorial published here and there. I paint too. P is not my favourite letter, but you'd never believe that based on this paragraph.

I was around the site, dAmn and IRC on a few other accounts on and off since before dinosaurs had feathers, most notably on the account `IBinsanity, where I probably left you with a very favourable first impression.
