paula contreras10,651There 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 04:00:00301

Gailen Mapes85,206Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 8 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-04-08 10:45:40172001

Does anyone know if Adobe is doing a standalone version of LR6, or if it's only available with the CC subscription option?  I've been searching and can't seem to find a definitive answer.

While I often thought I was familiar enough with lighting, that proved to not be not at all the case this week... week one in the Lighting With Intent mentorship with +Eric Raeber.

I made some glorious mistakes this week, from something as simple as not checking my camera settings before taking my homework shots (ISO 6400 makes for some rough images), to not being able to settle on locations in which to photograph, trying to find the perfect item in which to shoot that would be the most cool when lit the right way.  Some might say my first week errs on the side of epic failure, but I did gain a lot of valuable insight from it.  I've learned to step back from what I thought I knew and I have since decided to really start from scratch.  I seem to think I'll learn the most that way, and I'm moreexcite... more »

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.

Does anyone know if Adobe is doing a standalone version of LR6, or if it's only available with the CC subscription option?  I've been searching and can't seem to find a definitive answer.

Attn:  Doctors, physical therapists, sports trainers, people in-the-know, etc… I need some help/advice.
 
Quick background… I have hypermobility syndrome, which essentially means my joints easily move past the normal/typical range of motion of most of the population.   I use prescription orthotics to help correct foot/ankle/knee/hip alignment, and I’m mindful of my posture.  About 10 years ago, I had a major knee procedure which re-aligned how my kneecap tracked in my left knee – prior to that, it would dislocate and relocate when bent and weight-bearing.  I was told the same thing existed in my right knee, but not to worry about it until I showed symptoms.  So now I’m showing symptoms - the right knee has developed the same symptoms within the last 6 months or so.  I’m learning how to adjust (for now) to minimize a lot of the pain, and I’ve also learned how to tape,which also helps some... more »

So here’s the thing.  Anyone who knows me semi-well knows that I’m pretty active in dance (multiple days a week).  It’s an issue, unfortunately.  I have the kneecap pain thing contained, but I also have another problem where my knee… I don’t know the terminology… it torques within itself.  Like, for example, the femur can stay stationary, and the tibia/fibula will rotate (which also causes pain).  It doesn’t happen a lot, but I usually know which movements will cause it… and sometimes those movements are not avoidable. 
 
_I’ve researched online to find a way to restrict that movement.  I see taping instructions online for general knee stability – and I’ve done this, but it doesn’t target the problem area.  Bracing the knee doesn’t do the job either.  I don’t know if someone can offer help or direct me to instructions on how to tape/brace for this kind of movement…?  I am trying to prolong this through the end of May and hopefully into July.  Any suggestions are welcome.____

Short, and very much to-the-point... but so valuable are the words of +Jessica Lark in this clip.  If you've not taken a few minutes to watch, I suggest that you do... it may change the way you practice your art.

My dear friend and fellow master in +The Arcanum    Photographer +Jessica Lark  is speaking my language in her Photographers ignite talk

Invest 5 minutes.  It's a good investment of your precious time

Prepare to be inspired and embrace a shift in your perception about why we do what we do.

Now it's time to publicly share my Great Scavenger Meetup - Las Vegas adventure album.  All the images aren't necessarily finished - I'm keeping some out to tinker with later.  

I had such an overwhelmingly amazing time with all of these overwhelmingly amazing Scavengers.  I can't wait to do it all over again as soon as possible.  :)

Over half way done on the sign up for this +Chrysta Rae​ Scavenger Hunt round... if you want in, do it NOW!!

:D

THIS THE OFFICIAL SIGN UP POST
for the 15TH Round 
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!
______________________________________________________________
The Photography Scavenger Hunt started as a game, that has turned into so, so soooo much more than just a game.

If you love photography,
and you have a camera,
you can play!

After sign ups (500 spots are open)
I will be giving you an item list - (after I have everyone registered)
10 simple things to take pictures of.

I give you an amount of time to get those shots done
(approximately 2 months).

You do NOT need to be a professional shooter. 
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.
And to get you using your camera in ways you might not do otherwise,
It's to push yourself to try new things.

You will be invited into a private community
where you WILL make friends,
you WILL learn from some amazing photographers,
we have behind-the-scenes lessons,
personal interaction with the judges, etc. etc.
You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of
THE MOST amazing community on G+.
- Proven without a doubt last week in Vegas.

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 AND THEY MUST BE + mentioned!!

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 spend the spring with you!!!!

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

Just say, "Im In" and you will be included.

The Photo below is pretty freaking EPIC

That is ME posing for my our very own, +Derek Kind 
who kindly had the vision for this, executed it,
AND taught me HOW while doing it!!!
I don't remember a single thing he said, but it was AMAZING!___Over half way done on the sign up for this +Chrysta Rae​ Scavenger Hunt round... if you want in, do it NOW!!
