PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
EVERY image sent to the website editor will be vetted to assure some measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT.
Crafthaus' goal is to show members' work in the best possible light and from the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Images posted will be solely those depicting your work or images closely related to your work, such as installation shots, you working on a piece, tools, good studio shots etc. Photos of you hanging with your buddies, images showing intimate parts of your body or images in which the work is not clearly front and center will not be posted. Crafthaus encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect ! We do not discuss our choices in photo material displayed on this site.
If your photos do not get posted here they either show unrelated content, nudity, or they are just not as good as they need to be. The most common reasons that photos do not get posted for quality reasons are: The images are blurry/out of focus, underlit (grey/green/yellow) or that the object is placed in front of a distracting background. Yes, it's really that simple. Just reshoot and resubmit ! No harm done. Good photography of your work will serve you better in the long run anyways.
If you have questions, on how to make your images better so that they get posted, please take a look at this discussion on crafthaus where a number of members share their insight on the topic. Also, look around at the images posted and compare them with yours. See if you can tell a difference, take notes of things you like or do not like.
And then take a photo, review, take a photo, review....
