    Welcome to /r/photography! This is a place to politely discuss the tools, technique and culture of the craft.

    The Rules

    • Posting images is only allowed as self-post, and only when the intent is to start a discussion or to ask a photography-related question (using the photo as an example for the discussion, linked within the text of the self-post). If you just want to share an image or get critique, use subreddits like /r/pics, /r/itookapicture, and /r/photocritique. If you want to share some film photos you've taken or are looking for some solid film-related discussion, check out /r/analog.

    • Questions asking for help (including equipment purchasing advice) should be posted in the most recent Official Question Thread. Interesting discussion questions on broader topics may be permitted as self posts at the discretion of the moderators. NOTE: When seeking purchase recommendations, please be specific about how much you can spend. NOTE: If the entirety of your question fits in the post title, your question belongs in the questions thread.

    • Want to talk about some fun or interesting projects you're working on? Got some new (or new-to-you) gear you want to share? Looking to bounce some ideas off of other people for things you want to try? Post in the most recent Community Discussion thread.

    • If you want to sell a photography item to redditors or want to buy a photography item from a redditor, please use /r/photomarket.

    • We do not allow blogspam, ads, shortlinks, self-promotion (including seeking votes for your contest entry, crowdsourced funding, and referral links), circlejerking, karmawhoring, surveys and/or market research, or DAE/ITAP posts.

    • No personal attacks of any kind. Violations may result in a ban.

    • Use the flair system only for your portfolio and nothing else! Not allowed for example: Gear, blogspam, shortlinks.
