Brian Matiash1,492,275I recently announced that my brand new +SmugMug portfolio site went live (http://portfolio.brianmatiash.com) and that prints are now available for sale! We had so much fun with the announce that I wanted to continue the good times today. With Valentine's Day in full swing, what better way is there to show yourself how much you love YOU than by winning a 1 YEAR Membership with SmugMug? :) Before we get to the contest details, I want to share a crazy deal that any _new customer_ can take advantage of - SmugMug has been extremely generous and is letting me offer a *25% discount* off of *any* of their four tiered membership packages. To get in on this deal, just use the coupon code *BMASH* when you set up your new account. That is a ridiculously good deal and like all good deals, it expires on _Feb 23, 2013 at the stroke of 11:59PM Pacific/US._ Now onto the contest details - which are very straightforward. I want to you to share your *one, single* image that you think would benefit most from having its own SmugMug Gallery. Just share your image right here in this event and tag it with #SmugMash . *Now, creativity and strength of vision count here!* If you want to share a little ditty about what makes this image so important to you and why you'd want to share it on your own SmugMug gallery, be sure to include that. The contest will run for one week, ending next *Thursday, February 21st at 11:59AM Pacific/US time*. There will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. The first place winner will receive a complimentary 1 year SmugMug *Business* membership. The second place winner will receive a complimentary 1 year SmugMug *Portfolio* membership. Finally, the third place winner will receive a complimentary 1 year SmugMug *Power* membership. If you're already an existing SmugMug member (good for you!) and you win, you will be upgraded to the respective tier that you placed in or if you placed in the tier that you are currently a member of, SmugMug will extend your account by 1 year. Please tag your comments and/or posts with #SmugMash  to make aggregating the entries easier! So who will be judging this contest? Aside from me, I am so excited to have three amazing SmugMug friends helping out. First, we have _the_ go-to person for all of SmugMug's friends, the lovely and insanely sweet +Katherine Cheng. Next up is SmugMug's social butterfly, loyal father of Rocky the Dog, and the harvester of  #Bonocorns far and wide, +Michael Bonocore. Finally, the co-founder of SmugMug, crazy lover of hanging gigantic prints of jaw-dropping images, and the generally huggable +Chris MacAskill.  One more thing - if you're a new customer who takes advantage of the 25% discount code ( *BMASH* ) today AND ends up winning one of the prizes, SmugMug will automatically tack on another year to your new account. Pretty, pretty, pretty sweet if you ask me. So that's that. I hope you all have fun with this contest. We can't wait to see the amazing work that you guys 'n gals posWin some LOVE! Well… some SmugMug LOVE!2013-02-15 00:00:00131

Want to show your view of the world? Submit you photo for the Plus One Collection III. Follow the steps in this post to do so: https://plus.google.com/u/1/+IvanMakarov/posts/c54Y13Ljif2

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Volume-III

Who can get published? Anyone! We hope to get as many submissions as possible. Due to the volume, we can’t publish them all, but we will publish as many as we can. 

Is there a theme this year? Yes, there is. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World” and the book will be split into three sections - “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”. You can interpret it however you’d like - we’d love to see how you express these. 

Do we accept color or B&W images? Either one is great.

How can you submit the work? Here are simple instructions: 

1 - Download and fill out image release form from here - http://goo.gl/brpX6n (you can even scan it using your phone, or use apps such as SignNow or TurboScan)
2 - Fill out the information about yourself and upload your work here - http://form.jotform.us/form/40565430045144
3 - Upload your submission to Google+, and tag it with #PlusOneCollectionIII tag 

Can you submit more than one image? Sure! You can submit first image for free. To submit three images to all three themes, or even three images to one theme (which increases your chances to get published), please make a small donation of $20 to our charitable cause (again, all of that will be donated with the book proceeds). Here’s the link to donate via PayPal - http://goo.gl/OSwT9k

Will you showcase all the submissions? Yes. All submissions will show up in the SmugMug gallery we will setup in the next day or two. Please allow 48 hours for your photo to appear there. 

When will you announce which images made it into the book? We will announce it in early April. 

The last day to submit your images is March 17!

Please help us spread the world about this by sharing this post. 

Questions? Leave them in the comments. ___Want to show your view of the world? Submit you photo for the Plus One Collection III. Follow the steps in this post to do so: https://plus.google.com/u/1/+IvanMakarov/posts/c54Y13Ljif2

The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle

Now that we have launched the Pixativity Photographer's Directory, it's time to announce the BRAND NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle. This, at the same time, means that I have decided to six feet the old APC.

How To Qualify

If you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the new PAC.

The difference between this new circle and the old APC is that I now will be giving away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified).

(For those of you not remembering the _APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The new PAC will be of the same high quality!_

The Guidelines

Yes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:

1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines.

2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So do your fellow G-plussers.

The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.

Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle.

3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks.

4) Premium Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Circle website are automatically included in the circle.

Please Note

If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share your own original images in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.

Release Date

The circle will be shared on Monday, March 3.

Now, let's make the new PAC a success story. :)

Cheers!___Pro photog directory by Peter From if you're interested.

+Rachel Tine has to replace her camera, but simply can't afford to do so. So she's set up a print sale of a lot of great photos. Have a look and see if you could spare a couple of bucks for one of her fine pictures, or as a donation.

You know how the math works, 1000 people donating 3 bucks, it's nothing to most of us and means a lot to her.

Thanks

Very Important Print Sale: Please Read!!!

Hi everyone!
I absolutely hate ever asking for help (ever!), but because I'm in a pretty dire situation right now, I feel compelled to write this message to my beloved G+ family to see if anyone is able to help me out of a very bad bind.

Last May, I acquired a dying Canon 5D, which is the camera responsible for every picture that I have shared with you all on G+. I have been trying to make do with this camera, hoping to use photography as both a creative outlet and as a means, as a single mom and full-time student, to support my young son Ben. However, the 5D is now officially on the verge of death, often shutting down even when the batteries are fully charged, and adding so much noise to every image that I have to push the luminance to 100 in Lightroom for every picture that I edit; it won't be long before the camera completely stops functioning. Right now I am stuck in a terrible loop; as a single mom and full-time student trying to finish her degree, I don’t have the money to purchase a new camera, and even though I have been offered multiple photography jobs since returning to Massachusetts, I can’t accept them to earn money to replace the 5D because I don’t feel comfortable using a camera that could die in the middle of a shoot.

I am terrible at asking for help - it’s killing me to do this publicly - but at this point I feel I have no alternative but to ask my beloved G+ family for your assistance. I am putting on a unique print sale, which will only last as long as it takes to raise enough money for a fully functional full-frame Canon DSLR (in order to not have to replace my lenses, too). For anyone who purchases one of my prints during this print sale, a personal message will be typed on the back of each print. I have also made a special folder of 60 of my best prints to choose from, but I will do everything in my power to make any print I've ever taken available to you, so special requests are more than welcome! If you've ever wanted one of my prints hanging on your wall, now is by far the best time to buy one! And because I realize that money is tight, if you can't afford a print but still want to help, any and all contributions, no matter the size, are welcome and greatly appreciated! If each of you who have enjoyed my work donate even $1, I'll be able to keep my work coming, hopefully beautifying your streams in the process. :) Also, if you have a fully functional full-frame Canon DSLR collecting dust somewhere that you'd want to donate, I would be honored to give your old camera plenty of love and take it on all kinds of great shoots! And of course, even if you can't afford to contribute to the cause, getting the word out is so greatly appreciated that I will give away a print with an autographed and hand-written personal message to one randomly selected person who re-shares this post, (available) size and image to be chosen by the winner!

Since not all of my images are the same aspect ratio, available sizes and prices will vary for some images, but for the more common 2x3 aspect ratio on the best lustre paper around, the prices are as follows:

$20 - 8x12"
$30 - 10x15"
$45 - 12x18"
$75 - 16x24"

Shipping is one flat rate of $7 to anywhere in the United States (if you want your print(s) expedited and/or shipped outside of the United States, please contact me directly for specific shipping rates). Payments should be made to RachelTine@gmail.com through PayPal, but please contact me directly at RachelTine@gmail.com to discuss image sizes (and any additional questions or requests).

Again, thank you all so much for your amazing awesomeness and support! Times have been tough recently, but being a part of this awesome community keeps a smile on my face and hope in my heart!

xoxoxo,
