Photography Section stands as one of the most important section of Mi Community. It has been made special specifically for you guys who are passionate for Photography by heart and want to seek more and more of it, getting the real Photographer in them out. It's the best platform for you to show off your skills in the most preferred and prestigious yet creative manner. Approach is what you got to explore out here. It's a platform where you can share what you capture with your xiaomi devices and share with other mi fans.
As the Section is being so greatful and serving for us, it's our duty to keep it healthy and Awesome.
In case if you're New to Mi Community, be sure to check this out Mi Community India Rules and Guidelines! first

This Prestigious section demands some rules that should be followed fairly throughout by Everyone :

1) To make use of Decent Language : English
Though It's an Indian forum, but as Hindi or other regional languages are not accepted and understandable by Everyone, English is preferable for better interaction and communication. Wether it be replying, threads, albums, titles, ratings - English is preferable to make use of.
If you have got any problem, just Pm Moderators of the Section

2) To be Informative and create Detailed Threads
Adding up a few pictures and calling it an Album is what a True Photographer shouldn't follow. Depicting and relating the pictures you upload by words, captions or by pleasant phrases or sentences gives a good glance yet impression to the Viewer.
And so it's recommended to give a pleasant description or introduction about your thread covering the informative entities as camera model, situation, camera app, conditions used, approach, techniques used, tips ( if you want to relate any)

3) To be Creative throughout
Creativity is what drags up the user/viewer full of curiosity to look for the pictures you uploaded with true feelings. The following notes can be essential if you want to be creative :
- A catchy title ( Not like Redmi note 3 Clicks or this and that Clicks)
For Instance : Inventive Symmetrical Pathways
- To give captions, one words or phrases for each and every picture you upload
- clear and soothy content

4) To be Attractive and feel Ironic
Making use of the Advanced Mode is highly recommended for a person who not only wants the viewer to look for the pictures but expects him/her to examine each and every detail.
Following basic formatting Should be surely considered :
- Font size and colour
- Content and Pictures Alignment
For Instance, Center alignment is preferable for pictures
- Use of universal highlighters as Bold/Italic/Underline in order to highlight key points of the content
- Use of hyperlinks if you want to attach any link
For instance, link for any previous thread/album/tutorial or of a app you want to recommend everyone

You may refer the following thread to understand How To Make An Album Thread Properly . The purpose of this thread is to give users an idea about basic things that is required to make an perfect album thread.You may even refer the following thread to understand the notions of Being Informative! Creative! Attractive!
How to make a Perfect Album Thread? | Key to become a Good Photographer!
"This section is for those who have a soft corner in their heart for Photography.
Till now, many album threads have been posted around. But there are some people out there who wants to Glorify their thread and make them more attractive. Even I chanted a littlle with the caption to Be more informative. Be creative! And Be Attractive! Enough to make your thread attractive and reflect ironically."

5) Not to spam the peaceful environment
Creating unnecessary threads/albums or off topic posts non-related to this section or to reply anonymously and non-meaningful comments comes under Spamming.

10) It's unnecessary to post Irrelevant Polls or Discussions.
Discussions or polls made should be meaningful enough to make sense. For Instance, Which camera is Better? - with no other description or content. Such threads will be deleted immediately. Polls Should not be in exercise for more than 6 Days.

11) Making pretty and excellent threads
Threads should contain preferably 3 or more pictures with relevant description or content. Threads or Albums hosting information like Exif data, considerable skills, appreciable efforts with neat and clear presentation will be stamped Pretty, Dope, Excellent... as per the situation
Selfie and Peoples threads are recommended to contain a relevant content to display about what gathering or story are behind the pictures.
