Daily Deviation Guidelines: Macro PhotographyHello, it's me (shout out to JenFruzz), I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to read my Daily Deviation Guidelines.

How to suggest a Daily Deviation?
Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?Send me a note Note with the title: "DD Suggestion", or "DD S".
Include in this note the thumbnail of the deviation that you are suggesting (in the bottom right of the deviation: thumb#######). I accept that you include several Daily Deviations Suggestions in one note, as long as it is organized.
You can, subsidiarily, include in your note the reason(s) why you think that the artist(s) deserve(s) a Daily Deviation (preferred, but not required).
I can't give a Daily Deviation to a person who
aaaaaand So you sent a Daily Deviation suggestionCommunity Week
It is time to talk about Daily Deviation (commonly called "DD") suggestions! In this article, we will skip the parts where we explain what a DD is or how to suggest them and so on since there are already various articles and journals about that. We will focus more on what happens after you suggest them. :D
What happens next?
Or, there are two possibilities: either your DD is accepted (if so, congratulations to the suggested artist and to you, the suggester!); or it isn't.
How do I know if my DD Suggestion is accepted?
Either you know it in advance because the CV you sent your DD Suggestion note to told you, or you receive this kind notification in your message center:

So then you can jump around and be happy for the artist :dummy:
How do I know if my DD Suggestion is not accepted?
Well... sometimes, you don't. Some of us CVs don't rep

Why I love macro photographyIn case you haven’t noticed it yet, I may have an interest in macrophotography :paranoid:
First of all, here is a definition, by MarcosRodriguez of macro photography: "A Macro photograph shows a subject that is life size compared to the size of the negative of a SLR or sensor in a Full Frame DSLR, that's a 1:1 reproduction ratio aspect. […] Often a ratio aspect of 1:2 is also considered Macro, although that ratio shows subjects which life size is half of the size compared to the negative or sensor, I prefer to call those pictures Close-up photographies." (quote from here)
But why do I love it so much? In order to answer that question, I asked for the help of some other macro lovers:

Because it makes you discover a wh
