Lotus Carroll1,774,157This 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.

Lotus Carroll1,774,157This is the Event for our November Self Portrait Challenge: *Cinematic*. What this means is let your images be inspired by the look and feel of moving films, cinema, movies! Basically, they'll look like stills taken from a movie - drama, mystery, and action are all great genres to focus on. Location, lighting and angles will play key roles in your imagery, as well as your post processing technique for color, cropping, and more. Here is where you enter your ONE Cinematic 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* Like most things, there are many ways to achieve this kind of look (just as there are many styles of cinema!), so find a style that suits you and work with it. This @111480916026711337375 article has some interesting information that you might enjoy: http://goo.gl/KhWR79   A good thing to remember when creating your image is that _movies tell stories_. As such, the story being told by your photo will have a huge impact on how "good" the finished product is - does your one image effectively pack the punch to tell a story? I think that the greatest cinematic images have great scene, lighting, angles, post processing (color, cropping, etc) and ALSO have been set-up such that they tell a story with impact. Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. The header for this Event was created by @112528921891703025888.  If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away!

A prerelease copy of Photoshop 1.0 blew my mind in my mid-twenties and pulled me off the road as a hard-working, traveling musician - taking odd creative jobs cleaning up photos, designing CD and book jackets, and learning how to use the rest of the computer to help support my imaging habit.  A few years later I found myself working with guru Kai Krause helping to build the Kai’s Power Tools plug-ins and imaging apps, managing his website, and editing his popular series of Photoshop channel and selection ‘power tips'.  And a few years after that I ended up landing at Adobe as a product manager, working alongside Photoshop day in and day out in my role as the PM for Dreamweaver - finally landing at the mothership myself.   About *The Channels Panel* The Channels panel is one of my personal go-to panels in PS - but one that’s been misunderstood in many ways over the years - even though much of the old magic we could conjure up with it  back in the PS 3.0 era can now be achieved nondestructively with layer effects, there’s still a ton of power to be had in the Channels panel for creating and working with Photoshop selections and masks of all sorts. #photoshop   #hoa   #tutorial   The Photoshop Show 62 - with guest Scott Fegette2014-08-20 03:00:0051

Virtual Photo Walks™4,935,883Join @114722171656756095824  for a quiet walk on Legion Loop Trail. We'll start on Goodview Hill, so called because it once served as a lookout for early Arapaho, Cheyenne, Kiowa and Comanche Indians and for Anglo settlers. Legion Park was turned into a WW1 memorial in 1933. The artillery pieces are gone but the walls remain. We will see some great views of the Flatirons, Boulder Valley, three reservoirs, the electric plant (operating here since 1918) and hopefully we'll spot some prairie dogs, ducks, and hawks along the way.

The Photoshop Show2,031When we asked @111772222071720240926 what he wanted to share with all of you he jumped out of his chair and said, "Super excited about the show. My topic is going to be, "Capturing those magic moments". I am going to show the process of how I seek to capture and then eventually select the moments that mean the most. In order to do this, we'll dig into a few unedited folders of images in Lightroom to give a behind the scenes look at the photos that were captured. Here we'll look at how using Collections in incredibly important for whittling down to the keepers. We'll look at a few different examples:  iPhone photos, commercial shoot and a personal project. Finally, I'll highlight a few steps in Lightroom to make some improvements. " O.K. maybe he didn't "jump" out of his chair, but he is excited to share his knowledge with you! Tuesday at 9pm eastern, 6pm Pacific LIVE right here on this event. you can always come back anytime after and watch the recorded version.

Chef Dennis Littley778,540Please join me and my co-host @106378369294492458187  for the second show in our series *Around the Kitchen Table*  with our special Guest @117703438025249181486! Each week I will prepare one of my favorite Restaurant Dishes  and provide the recipe for you to work along side me or save to make later. Susan will bring her many years of Kitchen Design experience to the show and discuss different elements of the kitchen each week, from Flatware to Counter Tops ,  she'll share her tips for not only beautifying your kitchen but showing you how to get the most from the space you have. We hope you'll join us! *Ravioli with Shrimp Scampi* *Ingredients* 12 ounces fresh or frozen ravioli of your choice (I used Spinach Ricotta) 8 – extra large shrimp – peeled and deveined ( I used 16-20 count) 4 ounces sliced white mushrooms 1 clove garlic chopped 10-12 grape tomatoes sliced in half (I used tri-color heirloom) ½ cup chicken stock 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon flour 1 teaspoon Italian parsley chopped 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese freshly ground black pepper to taste *Instructions* Get water ready for ravioli, mine only took 8 minutes to cook so don’t start cooking these until the scampi is almost ready. Over medium high heat place a large sauté pan, when it gets hot carefully add the olive oil and then the chopped garlic. Allow the garlic to sear for about 15 seconds then add in the shrimp and let them cook for 2-3 minutes until they are almost done. Remove the shrimp from the pan and add in the mushrooms, sauté the mushrooms for a few minutes then add in the tomatoes and allow them to cook for about 30 seconds. *If you are using fresh ravioli this would be the time to add the ravioli to the boiling water Add the chicken stock and allow to come back to a low boil, reduce heat . Press the butter into the flour getting as much flour pressed in as you can. (this is called a beurre manie) place this into the hot stock and mix together. This will thicken the stock. Add the shrimp back in, and finish with the grated Romano cheese and freshly ground black pepper. Turn off the heat and add in chopped parsley Drain the Ravioli and place 4-5 ravioli on each plate then top with shrimp and equal amounts of mushrooms, tomatoes and sauce. Then sit down to your Restaurant style dinner of Ravioli and Shrimp Scampi!  Monday, March 31st at 12 pm PST | 1 pm MST | 2 pm CST| 3 pm EST   Check your time zone here-->http://goo.gl/sa8CdP   Watch our show here on the event page where you can leave your comments and ask your questions live during the shows broadcast.  But if you can't watch it live don't worry you can always watch the replay on my YouTube Channel: http://goo.gl/3iukbR #AroundtheKitchenTable   #CookingShow   #kitchendecor  Around the Kitchen Table - Ravioli with Shrimp Scampi2014-03-31 21:00:0071

Afterwards, Kerry-Ann get into an example of her workflow for processing a deep sky astro image from pre processing (image stacking) to final post processing in Photoshop...... I have got to see this. "After getting my first telescope at the age of 11 and then my first film camera as a teenager I was hooked on the concept of taking pictures of deep space. Ever since then I have strived to improve my skills in astrophotography and in the process have produced images that have won awards, been featured in calendars, magazines, books and online publications such as Sky News POW and NASA APOD. While enjoying this hobby, I have a full time career as a meteorologist and  I love life with my husband and two girls".

Alan Shapiro3,475,828I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making *the best bags in the world.*) Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0080

On the geek side you have the technical details like f-stops, shutter speeds, lens and gear. On the artistry side things are a little tougher to define: shape, color, composition, mood, balance and light.  Most photographers tend to lean towards one direction or the other, but it's important to achieve a balance to create beautiful images, especially when photographing nature._ _This webinar will focus on the many elements that make up the composition of a beautiful nature image, using hundreds of examples and practical, real world situations.  You'll learn the “rules” of composition as well as when and why to break them.  You'll find out how to find the picture, and how to work a subject to maximize the potential of every situation.  In addition, we will cover how to control such things as lighting, backgrounds, depth of field, and perspective to enhance the composition._Webinar - Composing Images in a Natural World2013-08-30 02:00:0013

Virtual Photo Walks™4,935,883Come with our +Virtual Photo Walks™ Photographer +Don Komarechka as he takes us to see how he plays with photography. Don will try to cover the following in equal parts showing us the following: - Flower and garden photography. Playing with light, angles, details, etc - Insect photography. Chasing bees and butterflies, how to sneak up, and what angles work best. How to light them, too! - Water droplet refraction photography. This'll be good - making water droplets come to life and showing flowers inside of them.  Don will have some close-up filters we can experiment with on the results of placing them infront of your cellphone camera lens to get close in on the action too.

Patrick Kelly12,002Please join us for the Google+ Two-Year Anniversary Photowalk!  We were one of 110 cities worldwide to participate last year, and everyone hopes to have a larger turnout in 2013.  Meet other photographers, win fantastic prizes, and most of all, *HAVE FUN*!!!  (Did I mention all of this is completely *FREE*?!??) Everyone is welcome to participate. Photographers of all skill levels, from beginner to pro.  What if you only have a cell-phone camera?  *YES*! You, too!  This is a community-organized event.  We are a loosely-organized group of photographers.  What are the requirements?  (A) Have an active account on Google+; and (B) Click "yes" for attending this event!  By doing so, you will be eligible for random prize drawings and participation in the worldwide photography contest. -------------------- *UPDATE - ONLY ONE WEEK AWAY!* *MEETING LOCATION* - We will meet up at the corner of 3rd and Marquette at 10:00 AM.  (On the southwest corner of 3rd and Marquette, to be exact).  I will try to be down there a few minutes beforehand. *DRIVING DIRECTIONS / PARKING INFORMATION* - Exit I-25 onto Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd and travel west.  (MLK turns into Marquette at Broadway).  Metered parking is available throughout downtown, as are small pay lots. There is a large underground lot that you can enter from Marquette immediately after you cross 3rd Street (left turn into lot).  That's the one I plan to use.  I don't know the specifics about parking costs.  *VOLUNTEER FOR COORDINATING GROUP PHOTO* - It would be great to take a group photo before we get started, so if any of you are inclined to bring a tripod and remote (or other mechanism), please do so! *WHAT TO BRING* - Be prepared for heat and sunshine.  I always suggest carrying water, and sunscreen should be a given.  Whatever gear you want to carry around. *THE ROUTE* - Our actual route is subject to change, based on your suggestions.  My initial thought is to weave our way in an odd "Figure 8" through the following intersections:      3rd & Marquette (start location)      4th & Lomas (courthouses)      7th & Central (El Rey Theater)      1st & Central (train station)      1st & Gold ("DEA headquarters", a la "Breaking Bad")      3rd & Gold (the "mystery" corner... helps me define a figure 8)       3rd & Marquette (back to where we started) Of course, when things grab our attention, we will likely deviate from this route. Not to mention that this might be an ambitious route, so we can easily trim it down.  *WHOLEHEARTEDLY OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS!* *CLICK YES ON THE EVENT PAGE BEFORE SATURDAY!* - This is the only way you will be eligible for giveaways and the photo contest! -------------------- Questions? Feel free to contact me directly (+Patrick Kelly) or +Michael Lucero, and we'll do our best to get your questions answered. When: Saturday, June 29, 2013 @ 10:00 AM MDT Where: Civic Plaza, in downtown Albuquerque, NM (*PRECISE MEETING LOCATION IS CORNER OF 3RD AND MARQUETTE*) Who: YG + 2 Year Anniversary Photowalk Albuquerque, NM2013-06-29 10:00:0018  
SmugMug46,280Have you ever wondered how to get your photos picked up by ad agencies? How does a photographer get their foot in the door? These are questions many of us have thought about before, since photography (and ads) are everywhere we look. Well, SmugMug Pro @114056084994793924628 helped answer some of those question during a recent SmugMug podcast (bit.ly/ZsDwsb). But, we found, that the interest in this subject is off the charts, and the follow up questions for Alan have been coming in fast and furious. So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout!  _Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST._ Have a question you would like us to ask Alan? Simply add it as a comment here, on this event. Alan will also do his best to respond to any questions we do not ask during the broadcast, right here in the Google+ event. So make sure to RSVP, and post your best question for Alan. We will even be giving away a year of SmugMug Portfolio to one lucky person who asks a question before the end of the live hangout.  And yes, this will be recorded to view on our YouTube channel.  #Photography #Advertising #Commercial #SmugMug #SmugMugProWhat Ad Agencies Want From You - Interested in Fashion or Commercial Photography?2013-06-12 03:00:0076

Take all sorts of photos of your fellow walkers, and later, tag away.  Get close, get far, get creative! - _Photo Lessons_ - I'll be stopping a few times throughout the walk to set up for shots.  I'll talk through my settings and describe my setup.  People are welcome to look through my camera. - _Need Photo Advice_ - Come up any time throughout the walk and ask me or Thomas anything!  We're happy to help.  No question is too dumb, and we are happy to help! - _Sharing_ - Get back home to the sweet internet after the event and upload your photos to the event.  Tag people in the photos, and tag the photos with #GlassPhotowalk    We'll have a TON more details soon...  this will be a great celebration of photography! *Watch Live:* Can't make it?  @112471890387110967375 will be hosting a @106837773805813749834 session.  I'll share it live to my stream too! *What to Bring:* Any camera will do - from a mobile phone to a big DSLR.  It's all good! :) *Party Mode:* Put your Android or iPhone into Party Mode for the event!

Mike Runyon28,935While I realize a lot of people have to work on President's Day, it is worth while asking for the day off. The traffic is considerably less and the crowds are diminished, making for far more photo opportunities. All those who can attend can meet just inside the main gate as there's a large area to gather and then proceed on through the event. There is a lot to see and do, as well as some great food to go with! There are numerous shows and great displays and has been quite the fun time all the years I've attended. You can buy tickets at the main entrance or you can usually pick up discount tickets at Fry's groceries. http://royalfaires.com/arizona/ Even though you may not be able to attend, please share this with any and all you think might be interested in the event!Arizona Renaissance Festival President's Day Photowalk2013-02-18 18:00:0020

Brian Matiash1,488,311I 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

The Best Day(s) Of My Life
I have no words that could ever accurately describe my awesome adventure with +Chrysta Rae and 130 fellow Scavengers in Las Vegas on The Great Scavenger Meet Up!
Other than the horrible trip getting there and back on a Greyhound bus (you could not pay me to use them again, I would hitchhike first) the experience was one of the best of my entire life :D
This is only the first couple of days of the trip and I still have 2 1/2 days to finish going through and editing! Will be adding to this album!

Purple Haze
Hello to all my googly peeps :)
I had a strong wind blow me all about, not unlike this flower at White Sands! I got as sand blasted as I did out shooting this :P
For the time being I have settled in a new spot, washed the sand off and am recuperating from the past two years weeks!
I am back online, though, for the moment, not as much as before.
Have to figure out where I am at before I can move onward :D
I have missed you!!!!!!!

Get the fun and creativity here on Day 1 of the reveals from the Scavenger Hunt!
Please comment on the photos themselves!
Only one in this album is mine!

We are officially on DAY ONE of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*BLISS*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*BLISS*" album,
1 item seen in 254 different ways.

Adobe has released Lightroom CC 2015.1, which includes two exciting new features: 1) the Dehaze control for reducing the haze you often see in the distance in landscape photos,and 2) Whites and Blacks sliders in the Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, and Graduated Filter.
This update is for those who license Lightroom as Creative Cloud subscribers. If you have a permanent Lightroom 6 license instead, your update, Lightroom 6.1, has bug fixes and new lens and camera profiles, but it does not include the new Dehaze or Whites and Blacks sliders in the local tools.
There are some new features for Lightroom Mobile too. Adobe's Terry White covers what's new in Lightroom CC 2015.1 and Lightroom Photo in this video.

As you might know you can upload a picture for a new post and add it to an album right away. Fine so far. Everything works as expected - so far.
Now let's assume you intend to move the picture to a different album. Before the launch of the new Photos release this was not possible. You had the opportunity to add it to another album, which resulted in a duplication of the picture. Now you can do that, but with undesired consequences.
Here's the workflow you should avoid at all cost:
1) go to "Photos" / "Collections"... more »

SERIOUS FLAW in Google's new Photos Functionality !!!
Please read on, if you happen to share photos on Google+, because a basic operation can lead to big trouble. What is big trouble? In this case: The whole post will be gone without a warning! How to prevent this? Here come the details...

As you might know you can upload a picture for a new post and add it to an album right away. Fine so far. Everything works as expected - so far.
Now let's assume you intend to move the picture to a different album. Before the launch of the new Photos release this was not possible. You had the opportunity to add it to another album, which resulted in a duplication of the picture. Now you can do that, but with undesired consequences.
Here's the workflow you should avoid at all cost:
1) go to "Photos" / "Collections" (left vertical icon panel) / "Albums" (drop down of the title "Collections")
2) select the album the picture is in, click the picture to select it (click the little checkbox in the corner). Now go to the top and click the "+" button to add it to another album. So far so good. Now it lives in two places. But the initial post will direct your visitors to the original album only. Is it a duplicate picture at this point in time? Doesn't look like, but how can we be sure? Anyway. In order to move the picture, we need to proceed with the next step:
3) remove the picture from the initial album. Instead of clicking the "+" icon, now click the "..." icon to open the "other actions", which only contains "Remove from album".
The result: the picture is gone from this album - and so is the entire post it was shared with along with all +1 and comments!

Have I mentioned you should avoid doing this by all means? :-(

This is a serious flaw in Google's new Photo functionality and I really hope the developers at Google will take care of this. There is no warning like "the post this picture had been attached to will be removed". No hint at all! +Yonatan Zunger et al, can you please let us know, what's going on here? It cannot stay like this or else many users will experience the same issue and losing posts is no fun at all!

There seems to be one workaround for moving pictures between albums without losing related posts and without even losing the association between the image and the post: use Picasa's web UI.
Go to https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos?noredirect=1, find your photo and click on "Actions" / "Move to another album".
This is the only way you should move your pictures, if they had been shared with a post before.

Please share this post with everybody else on Google+ you know. I just lost a post with quite some feedback and activity this way. I would be happy, if this warning helps others to not get caught in the same trap...

If you'd like to see some of the photography posts that are still there in my collection, feel free to visit https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/8GLaX

Thanx for reading and take care...___

What a great discount from a wonderful photographer +Pam Boling :D
Father Day is just around the corner and graduations, weddings  . . .!

First Time for Everything

I’ve never done a shameless self-promotion here … and I think I’ve only linked my SmugMug page once or twice here, if that.

Now … I’m actually going to ask a favor. I know most of you are photographers and have absolutely no need for prints from me. I get that. Maybe someone in your circles who doesn’t know me would like something. Please share!

Through the end of June, I have discounts:
Code GPrint20 = 20% off any purchase
Code GPrint30 = 30% off any purchase over $250

I would really like (need!) to upgrade my Adobe software to CS6. I don’t know how long they will keep selling it.

Thank you … thank you … thank you!!!___What a great discount from a wonderful photographer +Pam Boling :D

Happy Birthday +Alan Shapiro hope your day is at least half as fun as the trip to Vegas!
Let me tell you, what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas, if the group happens to be a bunch of photographer . . . something to keep in mind :)
Alan thought that he would try out a few different jobs while in Vegas and towel boy was one of them :D)
He did a great job and I think know he liked some of the added benefits!

We know Google+ isn't dead. Please +1 and re-share to help us prove it!

When I talk to clients in Australia about Google plus, many of them reply that they “heard it was dead” or something similar.

It seems that negative opinions about this wonderful platform reach more ears than all the positive aspects of Google plus that active users have experienced and know to be true.

Let’s share our support of Google+ as a fantastic platform, particularly for:

- really getting connected with people

The number of +1’s will accumulate on the article at the link a bit like signatures on a virtual petition showing that real people really interact on Google plus and we want to prove it to the world!

The Sign Up Post for Blurs and Unsharp Photography with +Alex Lapidus through +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is now open!
Please respond on original post :)

Signup here for Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2015

This is a special program on the art and weird science of motion blurs, intentional camera movement, long exposures, and much more, offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.  I will be taking on a small group of people for an eight week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. This is going to be huge fun, and a great learning experience!

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!

My own photography has benefited enormously from mentorships and coaching offered by +Nathan Beaulne, +Robin Griggs Wood, +Darryl Van Gaal, +Sairam Sundaresan and others here on G+, and I’ve had the chance to assist with a number of additional programs and now to serve as a director of the overall Mentorship Program along with Robin and +Ron Clifford; I’m delighted to have the opportunity to offer my own favorite subject once again!  To add to the fun, I've invited the people who participated in and assisted with last year's program to help out this time around, so we'll have all of that fabulous experience in the group.

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, have at least a basic understanding of the Exposure Triangle, 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!

Selections will be announced on Monday, May 11 (I’m in U.S. Pacific time: UTC - 8:00), and the first lesson will be posted on Thursday, May 14.  The program will run eight weeks, through July 9.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and publicly posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– at least a public photo post every three days, and more is better (the program itself will be private to the group selected, except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end).
• You must be interactive here on G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You must have the time available to participate in this workshop.

To be considered for selection, please answer the following questions, on the main post only, here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AlexLapidus/posts/Uv4ChbSaMXa  (your application will not be seen at any reshares).  Please note that signups are not first-come, first-served, and comments will remain open for at least a few days, so please don’t worry if you’re not first in line.

1) Cameras (including smartphones) you expect to use in the program
2) Photo editing software and apps used most
3) Aspirations within photography
4) Previous art studies 
5) Amount of time you have available for participation

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Nikon D3100 and iPhone 4S
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Snapseed
3) To sell prints of my work
4) I have no previous art studies
5) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this 


() 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).___The Sign Up Post for Blurs and Unsharp Photography with +Alex Lapidus through +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is now open!

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.

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.

Purple Haze
Hello to all my googly peeps :)
I had a strong wind blow me all about, not unlike this flower at White Sands! I got as sand blasted as I did out shooting this :P
For the time being I have settled in a new spot, washed the sand off and am recuperating from the past two years weeks!
I am back online, though, for the moment, not as much as before.
Have to figure out where I am at before I can move onward :D
I have missed you!!!!!!!

+Ron Clifford is a great teacher. I highly recommend him!

I have a few spots left for my upcoming Photoshop Foundations 201 - Layers Masks and Selections

beginning the week of April 20th. 

If you really want to begin to master selections, then this may be the ideal next step.  During this 3 session program I will walk you through creating advanced selections using several different selection methods in Photoshop.  This is Ideal if you have a basic understanding of basic layers and creating a layer mask.  It really does focus on making selections right from the first week until the end. This is also the next program for those who have previously taken Layers Masks and Modes, Oh My.

If this looks like the next logical step then check out the link and see if looks like a great fit for you.

The Best Day(s) Of My Life
I have no words that could ever accurately describe my awesome adventure with +Chrysta Rae and 130 fellow Scavengers in Las Vegas on The Great Scavenger Meet Up!
Other than the horrible trip getting there and back on a Greyhound bus (you could not pay me to use them again, I would hitchhike first) the experience was one of the best of my entire life :D
This is only the first couple of days of the trip and I still have 2 1/2 days to finish going through and editing! Will be adding to this album!

Going Batty and Need Some Advice On What I Should Do!
Well, I am already batty, but this is an entirely different issue :P
So I was wondering why the sparrows have not come back this year to nest, in the numerous nests, they have built in my front entryway!
I found the problem last night, 11 of them actually . . .  bats have taken up residency on my wall in the entryway.
I have no issues with bats, think they are cute and I know that they are good for the environment, eating bugs and all that :)
However, I am a tad bit concerned about them spreading diseases, like rabies and ebola! Now I have no idea if these are the types of bats that do, if my concerns have any foundation at all, but any advice on the subject would be greatly appreciated :) If there are no real issues, I will just leave them be, as they are far less noisy than the sparrows!

Would you like to learn about how to use light effectively in your photography?
+Eric Raeber is now taking application for his lighting mentorship through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers Please comment on original post!

My mentorship on Lighting with Intent is ready for sign-ups!

►►► Read the instructions before you sign up! ◄◄◄

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you understand light and make use of it to add emotion to your photography rather than have it constrain your creativity. You will learn and experiment with off-camera flash, light modifiers, combine flash with ambient light, and play with a host of other lighting techniques.

I will be taking on a handful of people for a nine week online mentorship program which includes lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time.

My passion for photography (or more precisely conceptual photography) has burgeoned over twenty years ago. Photography has always been for me a playground for art to intersect with technology; a place where I can explore new domains by pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone. Lighting is one such domain.

I will be joined by an outstanding group of passionate photographers, artists, helpers, who will be there for questions and discussions as well as dispensing a good dose of cheer up. If you are as excited to acquire new skills as I am to share them, join me for an exciting and creative ride.

This is an advanced class. In order to participate, you must have a solid understanding of your camera and exposure in manual mode. You will need a camera with a flash hot-shoe (SLR or mirrorless). By the time we start, you will also need at minimum the following lighting equipment:

   - An off-camera flash on which you can manually adjust the power
   - A flash remote trigger (cable or wireless)
   - A light stand with a softbox (or alternatively an umbrella)
   - A reflector (or a large piece of white cardboard)
   - A set of gels. For example the Rosco Strobist kit
   - A tripod for your camera

If you are looking for specifics, here is the equipment I am using: www.ericraeber.com/Blog/Studio-lighting

PLEASE NOTE: Do not apply for this workshop if you do not meet these criteria.

Selections will begin on April 15th and the mentorship will start on April 25th

This is not first come first served. We will review the application and here are my selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three posts per week; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a weekly post and a public display album of your best work at the end.)

• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.

• You have no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.

• You have the time available to participate in this workshop. You will be given about 3 different assignments each week.

• You must own or have access to the equipment above during this entire mentorship

I will use the same selection criteria that +Robin Griggs Wood uses for her "G+ Mentorship Art for Photographers Program", which you can read about here to see if you qualify:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/105385385448524520257/posts/BT1Ei9qD2fi

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+EricRaeber/posts/CGeSiag5RRp and answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) List the lighting equipment you own (or will have access to)
3) Your three favorite subjects
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer, shooting for 5 years
2) Canon Rebel T3i, 2 x Yongnuo YN-560 flash, RF trigger, softbox, stand, gels, tripod, reflector
3) Still Life, Portraits, Macro
4) To get my first paid shoot for a client
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but have most evenings free.

The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is run by program directors +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford and +Alex Lapidus___Would you like to learn about how to use light effectively in your photography?

Awesome information on night, star and astronomy shooting by +Darryl Van Gaal!

Please share so others may learn also

I've not been that active and for that I'm sorry.  Life seems to be getting in the way.  The same goes for my blog (Dark Clear Skies).
With the warmer weather coming, I hope to push myself to get out and shoot more often (and post).

I figured that it's also been some time since I've shared my tutorials so here they are.

Happy Birthday +J. Rae Chip!
J Rea was the very first person from G+ that I met IRL!
We got together to shoot two ghost towns here in New Mexico.
This was her shooting an abandoned bar in Vaughn, NM before we went inside to explore! It was a fun afternoon :D.
Have a wonderful day today and when are you coming back?????
