General Themes FAQ

PostSat Apr 20, 2013 3:36 pm

Themes is ManikaManila's way of encouraging more creativity within the community. :D Every month, we'll post a new theme. Members will take this theme and apply it to a photograph. Reply to the Theme's post with the photograph, and at the end of the month we'll compile everything.

Here are some questions and answers you might find helpful.

Do I need an expensive DSLR and equipment to take nice photos?
No! You can use a point-and-shoot, a cellphone, or any camera that works. You don't need an elaborate lighting setup, but know that lighting can make or break a photo. If daylight isn't convenient for you, try this: Decent photos using built-in flash by fellow member Kass.

Can I edit my photo?
Yes you may! From simple brightness/contrast to adding a completely new background, feel free to use your imagination and edit your photos. Just make sure whatever other elements you're using are your own, or you have permission to use. :) (ex. adding a background—you also took the photo of the background yourself or you asked permission from the photographer to use their photo)

I have an idea but I'm not sure how to do it.
That's what ManikaManila is for! Share your ideas and other members can help you out. :D

Can I only submit ONE photo?
Ideally, yes. But you can also submit a photo series—a series of photos compiled in one image.

Can I submit a photo of someone else's doll?
Yes, you may! As long as you have the owner's permission.

Can I post the photo on a separate thread?
Of course! Just don't forget to comment on the respective Themes thread with a link to your photo/thread. :D

Any other questions? Feel free to ask!
