Lotus Carroll1,777,636This 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.

Chef Dennis Littley911,204Please 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 21:00:0070

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 Shapiro4,000,867I'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 01:30:0079

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

SmugMug47,123Have 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

Mike Runyon28,436While 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 Matiash1,503,719I 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

In the New Google+ you can still navigate with your keyboard through the stream. The shortcuts are almost the same as before, but now there is a "full post view" that you can enter with enter.

The most important shortcuts for me:
- j/k to navigate through the posts
- + to add a +1 to the active post (woohoo!)
- enter to open the full view of a post within the stream
- n/p to navigate through the comments in the full post view

Oh man, I sure wish I could attend this :/
If you want to learn from one of the best self portrait photographers, now is your chance! +Ricardo Williams  is one hell of a great person and teacher too :D) Added bonus there :P

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!!

Don't wait,Participate!___Oh man, I sure wish I could attend this :/
If you want to learn from one of the best self portrait photographers, now is your chance! +Ricardo Williams  is one hell of a great person and teacher too :D) Added bonus there :P

Hello friends of G+! You may remember that recently I announced I'd been offered a wall in a gallery to hang my artwork. I need your help to raise enough money to print some of my work for my first gallery exhibition coming up in December. (There's something in it for you, I promise.) Please click the link to read about it and find out how you can help and what you get for it. Every dollar makes a difference.

Adobe Lightroom Family Updates Released - and a Caution

The whole Lightroom family of products has been updated with the releases available in various ways from now. These updates include some exciting new features to LR 2015 2 (more for CC than standalone LR 6). There are updates as well to  LR Mobile (for iOS and Android, though the Android version is still a poor cousin version, needing more love, in my view), LR Web and others. 

My favourite update is the Dehaze as a local adjustment (only for CC subscribers), I also quite like the new revamped import dialogue.

All the features are outlined here :  http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2015/10/lightroom-cc-2015-2-now-available.html

Have fun with it!

The Caution

There is a completely new import dialogue and it will take a little bit of getting used to. The caution relates to the fact that there is no longer a little check box for you to have your media ejected after import. This means that if you forget to safely remove it manually, once the import is complete and you just pull the card or camera out, you risk data loss. Now if you always import all of your images on a card and immediately reformat, there is not necessarily a problem. Many folks, however, like to keep the images on the card as a safety backup until the files are backed up elsewhere. This could affect them. Or some, like myself, might import a few images for a specific purpose, leaving the others to import on another occasion. This could affect me, if the card is just pulled out without the safe remove.

See the images below for Windows Safely Remove Hardware function, located at the bottom right of the screen.

Leave With A Bang, Not A Whimper
Welcome to October, one of my favorite months of the year :)
Found these bright and lovely late bloomers in the woods, begging to be photographed :) I just had to oblige!
It was very chilly here yesterday and this morning . . . The trees are showing their colors and falling quickly here in Minnesota!

Happy Fall Everyone
I had a wonderful day up in nothern New Mexico with +E.E. Giorgi and +Sharon Thomas last year!
I miss the southwest, the drier and warmer climate, the endless sunshine and all my G+ friends I shot with there :(
This year, I will have a larger selection of fall colors to photograph with +Janice Hackney and some others here in Minnesota!
I just hope that I get acclimated to the cold, humidity and cloudy weather really soon . . . :/
