The Golden Mean – Saving Darkroom.When i first came to deviantArt i fell in love with how its opened towards every art form and devious artists. But now im in pain and feeling like they are taking something away from me after my long time visit the two categories im mostly focused on; macro and darkroom.The Golden Mean – Saving Darkroom. by Morda86
Im very surprised by the popularity of the previous article on this. This means that thankfuly im not alone with my feelings.
To those new that still do not yet know whats the problem about. On Artist Relations Newsletter: February 12, 2007 we can read about the upcoming changes on dA. Im ok with changes but there are things that painfully hit me. First something about macros and later on the darkroom... Ok begin quote:

Save the darkroom!It has come to my attention that there are some upcomming changes on deviantart concerning classification of photography. Some of those changes will painfully hit many deviants like myself who like to upload photos to categories such as "darkroom" or "macro". Removing those categories saying that they are not strictly "subject-based " but more like "technique based" categories is total nonsense! As a darkroom photographer i think that there are times when the subject is less important then the techniqe. Not mentioning that the techniqe can be a subject itself! "If you have a macro photo of a flower, for instance, please move it to the Flowers and Plants category." But what if im not interested in other simple flower photos? What if i want to view only flower macros? And what will happen if want to view only photos that were made on film, developed and printed by other deviants? The only option will be to stick to clubs such as analogphotographers http://analogphotographSave the darkroom! by Morda86
