Art through the Apeture Photography11,266There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.  Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please! Thank you @118149685580234696847  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.2nd Annual "You Are Beautiful"2015-02-22 04:00:00300

THIS IS THE OFFICIAL 2015 "SWEET 16" ROUND SIGN UP
for the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!

Don't know what that is?
It's an amazing game that has turned into so much more.
If you love photography, and you have a camera,
COME JOIN US!!

Simply type "I'M IN" in the comments below and the first 500 people to sign up will be entered.

After sign ups I will be giving you an item list -
10 simple things to take pictures of.
It's up to you to make your picture stand out!!
It's so much fun!!
I give you a few weeks to get the shots done.

You do NOT *need to be a professional shooter. 
You do NOT need a fancy camera.
You do NOT need to feel any hesitation on your skill level,
as this group of Scavengers is one of the most supportive groups of people around.
This is just FOR FUN.
It's me getting you to use your camera in ways you might not do otherwise,
It's to push yourself to try new things, learn new techniques, join a group of like-minded people who will encourage you and teach you sooo much!
Basically I'm giving you a fun excuse to take pictures you wouldn't have otherwise - for example, last round I got to pour yellow paint over a friend's head!! 

During the course of the month, you will make friends,
You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of the best community on G+. You WILL be welcomed and surrounded by wonderful people who WANT you to watch you succeed and surprise yourself!!

SO, if that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of...
All you have to do is type two simple little words, "*I'M IN "
And you will be registered.

IF YOU ARE SIGNING UP SOMEONE AS A PROXY (if someone has asked you to sign them up) do so on different comments.

I will only enter ONE PERSON per comment, if there are more than one on a single comment, only the first person will be entered. 
(This is the only way I can keep track of the 500 spots.)

PLEASE DO NOT comment on this post unless it is to sign up. Any stray comments will be deleted.

PLEASE DO NOT sign up unless you actually want to participate, not just because you see everyone else doing it.

I can't wait to play with you!!!!

And with that - (like any of you even read this) - let the registration BEGIN!! bounces around room

(This image below was shots from the "LADYBUG" category from the last round. PHOTOS BY: +Ursula Klepper, +Laurie Clouthier, +Søren Schaffstein, +Eleanor Preger, +Andrea Martinez, +Wendy Chase, +Bryan Finster, +Bethany DiTecco, and +Mark Rodriguez)___Do eet!  NOW!  NOW!  NOW!  :D

In search of an image for the 'Hang In There' portion of the Scavenger Hunt, I was fortunate to be able to spend some time with these fantastic ladies at the Tiger Lily Vertical Fitness studio in Geneva, IL.  Now that most of the images have been processed, I think I would have selected something different to submit for the Hunt... but I'm still very happy with the session and the enthusiasm from the ladies involved.  :)

None better said than our very own +Alan Shapiro​!

Here's to SuperDads everywhere

Our powers are the stuff of comic books to be hidden under beds and read by flashlight. Our exploits live on to be told and retold in hushed whispers (with the occasional giggle or snort of derision)
    We are faster than speeding bullets (except for the one time we couldn’t get to our 8 month old son as he rolled off the bed in super slow motion).
    We are more powerful than locomotives (HO Gauge), able to leap tall buildings (those made of lego, lincoln logs or wooden blocks) in a single bound.
    We can read minds, predict the future, heal, shape-shift, fly, stop time, and have many other super powers that we keep secret to be revealed only when absolutely necessary. (To be truthful, we are not even aware of many of these powers until a dire situation arises.)
    We have belts filled with supertools,  pockets filled with superstuff and garages filled with boxes of superjunk.
    We have x-ray vision and the ability to disperse any size crowd with a single blast of (ahem) gas.
    We have powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men (where our children are concerned). We can change the course of mighty rivers (during rainstorms for boats made of newspaper), bend steel in our bare hands (or at least fix bicycles and assemble all those toys on all those Winter Holiday Eves or mornings).
    And yes, we have our disguises as we go off to our day jobs; mild-mannered Clark Kents or high-pressured Tony Starks.
   But, alas, we have our kryptonite…those weaknesses that bring us to our knees and make us vulnerable. And while we hope those moments are fleeting, we pray in our SuperDad superhearts that you see us as the caring, love-filled heroes we aspire to be... tough and strong, needing you to feel safe and protected…but that, when all is said and done, that vulnerability can be it’s own super power.
And that in the end, our love for our children conquers all.

Happy Father's Day

A seemingly a perfect end to a much-needed relaxing weekend camping and exploring with Aaron. We both needed to get away, even if just for the weekend, to recharge.

When shooting the +Tough Mudder Chicago event for +Gameface Media last Saturday, I received the unexpected pleasure of capturing this amazing couple. They traveled 10.3 miles of mud, freezing water, barbed wire, fire, and electricity together... only to cross the finish line with the ultimate proposal. This couple who has already shown they are up for the challenge together. Congratulations!

Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2015

It's back!  I'm delighted to announce a new session of my mentorship, in partnership with the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers: a free eight week program on the art and weird science of unsharp photography.  The official signup post will arrive Monday, May 4, and the program will run from May 11 through July 9.

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence.  My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2015

It's back!  I'm delighted to announce a new session of my mentorship, in partnership with the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers: a free eight week program on the art and weird science of unsharp photography.  The official signup post will arrive Monday, May 4, and the program will run from May 11 through July 9.

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence.  My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

We’ll be covering a range of topics, including not just how to take certain kinds of images (and sometimes why), but also tools in post-processing and phone apps.  My goal is to be able to offer the program to you regardless of the tools you use to capture (or process) images – DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, point & shoot cameras, or Apple or Android smartphones ().  You’ll need to be familiar with the manual operation of any camera, and have time to take at least 100-200 photos per week (because practice with your hands will be key to some techniques; just knowing how won’t be enough).  You’ll also need to spend quality time in a (private) community supporting, enjoying, learning from and teaching your fellow participants!

Because we've had too much fun to stop, I've invited everyone who fully completed this program last year to sit in and assist with this round!  That means you'll have not only their support and encouragement, but a huge amount of accumulated experience with these topics.  I'm extremely grateful for their help, and to the other directors of the Mentorship Program: +Robin Griggs Wood and +Ron Clifford.


() There is at least one topic I may be unable to address if you’re using a point &shoot camera or smartphone alone (call it half of one of the eight weeks).  The ideal combination would be DSLR or mirrorless plus a phone, and if you use only a P&S it needs to be capable of full manual shooting (shutter speed, aperture and ISO).  Questions welcome anytime, and keep an eye out for the signup post on May 4!___

He +Nancy Levan!  Hope you're doing well!  :)

I wanted to let you know that +Aaron S won't be contributing any images to the Hunt this time - he didn't get around to shooting anything.  Thought you should know so you don't have to ask him later.
