Lotus Carroll1,775,015This is the Event for our February Self Portrait Challenge: *Love Is...* There is always quite a divide in feelings about Valentines Day out there, and about Love in general, and we figured that we'd let you guys battle out your feelings about that here on the "Self Portrait Stage" for this Challenge.

Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "Love Is..." theme. Your photo must have been captured during this month.

Want to learn more about Self Portraiture - #DarkChocolate  Style

I was once told: "You are a very good model, you have a great collection of work." When I answered that person saying: "I am not a model, I am a photographer" they looked really confused. "Self Portraiture"- I said.... still didn't ring a bell.

Maybe I am both, or maybe I am still just a photographer.....  If you want to know more about the creative process that goes behind my self portraiture then this is your chance...and  if you register before midnight Tuesday (yes, tomorrow) you'll receive $50 off your registration!!  

Check this out!!

My peeps, I need your input

I uploaded some of my photos to be licensed for sale, so some of them were approved.  But before they give it the go I need to agree on certain terms... and one of them reads:

The photos in this Collection are under an exclusive distribution license. This means that they can only be sold and distributed via Getty Images and XYZ Market

Does that line above mean that I can't sell those exact same images on my website, or on 500px or on any other media source?  Is that what it means?

Your advice/input is appreciated.

And you were crazy enough to have the slightest of interest in considering getting one........ What images do you feel it would be more interesting for it to have??  

Would you like it if it has Chicago Images? Las Vegas images?

Get ready for the November Self Portrait Challenge Event: "Morning Story" - Come join us and at the same time enjoy everyone's submissions!! 

Find the details in the post below! 

This is the Event for our November Self Portrait Challenge: "Morning Story." What this means is the image you create should tell us what your morning is like... do you love/hate it? Do you sleep in or jump right out of bed? Do you exercise, eat, shower, run, rush your kids out the door... or something else? You get the idea... this can be humorous or serious, it's up to you. 

Here is where you enter your ONE "Morning Story" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST November 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.

Tips & Inspiration

Check out this gallery of really great "Morning Story" self portraits - they are wonderfully inspiring: https://goo.gl/VBcxJE

Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event, too, in the hopes that you'll be inspired.

If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything. 

Thanks to +Annie Weibull for suggesting this theme, and to Lorena Masi (https://www.flickr.com/photos/lollyx34) for letting use her image in the header!

Under Pressure

.... Right at that moment I realized what it was. I felt like I couldn't breathe; like if something was preventing me from being, like if something was asking, begging, wanting me to not be!

It took me a while to realize what it was........ It was everything else, and at the same time it was me!

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I shall die when I'm wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take,

STOP

I won’t be manipulated, mind-controlled and inundated,
I will seek the revelation, make my life a celebration.
I’m gonna be the change I’m seeking, manifest the words I’m speaking
I refuse to be imprisoned I will make my own decisions

Part of the lyrics from Mike Love - Permanent Holiday

This is what I wanted to share a while ago.... not the whole album. Google Photos you are drunk, go home! You are already obnoxious even when you are sober!

Google Photos question

I have an issue with Google Photos (who doesn't, right?) ..... if I upload an image to photos, and then share it to an album/collection;  the image ends up showing up in my Google photos twice or three times... or as much times as I share it (or it shows up in albums).

Is that a normal behavior? Or am i doing something wrong?  My peeps, please advice!
