Landscape Photography Show12,746*Landscape Photography Show #46: Fill the Frame* "Fill the Frame" is often the first advice given to a beginning photographer.  That's what we will focus on in this event.  For landscape photographs, that can be done in one of two ways.  1. Do it with through the viewfinder.  Move yourself to the proper location and angle or zoom in/out if your camera does this until you get a pleasing image that "fills the frame".  You don't want any extra space or elements that will distract from your composition.   2. Crop your photo to eliminate that meaningless extra space that doesn't contribute to your composition and eliminate distracting elements. *Special Rules* 1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a scene where you have "Filled the Frame". 2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us about this photograph. Where is this place located?  What were you trying to achieve?  What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?   We want to know the details about your photograph.

Drink and Click™ Philadelphia177This month’s theme is Shallow Depth of Field, so it can be just about anything! Join us for a morning stroll through the historic Italian Market.  We will meet in Chapterhouse Cafe (on 9th just north of Bainbridge) in case anyone needs some morning fuel and then head down towards Washington and wander to our heart’s content.  Brunch TBD - there are so many options, but there will be brunch when we’ve had enough clicking! ___ Drink and Click™ does not require or encourage drinking alcohol. We are a social photowalking organization. People can join us and drink water if they want. We have many members that don’t drink alcohol and they still have a lot of fun with us. We are not responsible for any injuries to self or others, damage or loss of belongings, or incidents of any sort while meeting. Each attendee is responsible for their own actions while they are with at a Drink and Click™ Event. Our organization strongly discourages drinking and driving. If any Drink and Click™ attendee has consumed alcoholic beverages, we urge them to take a cab or ride with a designated driver.

Allan Cabrera18,599Attention New York, New Jersey, Philadephia, Delaware, Maryland and Washington DC photograhers...... Named after the Lenni Lenape Indian word for slow-moving water, Pennypack Park stretches nine miles, following Pennypack Creek southeast as it runs from Montgomery Couty to the Delaware River. The park covers more than 1,300 acres. The landscape of this rambling city park covers rolling hills, open meadow and many miles of paved and unpaved trails that are great for hiking, biking, running and horseback riding. You’ll also find numerous historic buildings, including a working farm. I suggest going to the Pine Road entrance which is right across Fox Chase Farm. There's tons of parking. Wear your favorite hiking shoes. We will be hitting some single track and fire trails along the creek. Hydration pack and bottled water is also a must. I will be updating this event as we get close to the date. Autumn Photo Walk in the Woods2013-10-19 12:00:0026

Drink and Click™ Philadelphia177September's Chapter-Wide Challenge is Landmarks.  What better place to explore landmarks than Philadelphia?  We're going to mix it up with some more widely known landmarks and some that are characteristic of Philadelphia.  Here's a rough itinerary, which is of course subject to change as we may wander off-course.  But please check back before arriving: 12:00pm - Meet at Reading Terminal Market (12th and Filbert) - We'll meet in the main seating area near Molly Malloy's. Plenty good to eat at RTM, so bring your appetite if you plan to eat lunch there. Some planned sights (though we'll go with the populace): 1) Reading Terminal Market (bring your fast lenses) 2) City Hall (exterior) 3) Macy's (Penn Square and Market, bring your fast lenses for the Wannamaker Organ) 4) Terminal Building (12th & Market) 5) Strawbridges Building (Market btwn 8th & 9th) 6) Lit Bros Building (Market between 7th & 8th) 7) Independence Hall / Mall (between 5th & 6th 8) Washington Square (Walnut & 6th) We plan to finish off at Cooperage Wine & Whiskey Bar between 4:30 and 5:30pm:  Curtis Center, 123 South 7th Street (across from Washington Square) http://cooperagephilly.com/ Time permitting, there is a lot around Independence Mall that may deserve some attention. RTM sits literally above The Market/Frankford Line and the Regional Rail line (Market East Station).  If you are driving, I'd recommend parking closer closer to Washington Square.  (RTM is 5 blocks west and 2 blocks north of Cooperage - it's a short hike, but very walkable).   +D. Travis North , +Jeremy Albright and/or +Rachael Switalski will post updates to this page throughout the walk.  Feel free to join us at any point, or cut out at any point.  Please also feel free invite your friends. Drink and Click™ does not require or encourage drinking alcohol. We are a social photowalking organization. People can join us and drink water if they want. We have many members that don’t drink alcohol and they still have a lot of fun with us.

Brian Matiash1,492,061I 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

Nature In Monochrome371What is Nature in Monochrome about ? Quite simply it's about showing that nature can be photographed in Monochrome (Black and White) and be interesting and creative and fun.  This is a virtual photographic exhibition open for all Monochrome photographers who photograph nature.  The event is hosted by +Richard Pennells  Lets see your creative side :-) _*Here are rules of entry*_ (do read this before entering your photo)  You can submit *1* photograph of nature in black and white  It can be toned but no selective colour  The photograph must be your own photograph not a reshare of another person's photograph Any photograph I feel doesn't fit in with the guidelines will be removed from the gallery (there's more scroll down) Use your imagination and be creative. (whenever you can) Try and make your photograph unique Your nature photographs must not contain any people but animals, wildlife insects etc are okay.  Remember the emphasis is on nature, so your photograph reflect this in content. Buildings and Man-made structures or machinery should not feature heavily in your photographs as the focus should be more on the nature Think of the quality of the photograph you submit, choose wisely because this is your way of showcasing your photography.   _Optional requirements_   I encourage you write a description of your photograph in the comments and the reasons why you chose this particular subject, what interested you about it ?.  Naming the photograph could also be useful in engaging your viewers.  Also the other photographers I am sure would appreciate your words of encouragement and showing an interest so do browse the photographs submitted :-) and comment on their works By commenting on the photographers works you will motivate them.  Many of them put in a load of effort  Oh and try and submit what you think is your best work as you have a single entry The end time of the event is 23.00 hours on the calendar day I have entered, so  your entries must be submitted before then. Thanks :-)Nature In Monochrome2012-12-01 00:00:0093

Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.

The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.

As a child, I would sit and ponder,
at the wooded areas, for their beauty relaxed me.
The sway of the branches and whistling of the winds,
as if they were calling my name.

Then as I grew older, they were my retreat,
for the woods became my own world.
A world full of imagination, creativity,
resourcefulness, as well as inspiration.

Sunrise doesn't last all morning,
A cloudburst doesn't last all day
Seems my love is up
And has left you with no warning
But it's not always going
To be this grey

All things must pass,
All things must pass away

Darkness on the edge
Shadows where I stand
I search for the time
On a watch with no hands
I want to see you clearly
Come closer than this
But all I remember
Are the dreams in the mist

Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted
In my brain still remains
Within the sound of silence
