Lotus Carroll1,770,754This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: Multiplicity. What this means is create a self portrait where you appear in the image multiple times (2 or more, your choice). Get creative and think up an interesting scene you can use this effect on and then make your image. Here is where you enter your ONE Multiplicity Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST March 31st, 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* There are several different ways to go about achieving this effect. In camera, you can use a long exposure and move around. Alternately, you can use post processing to create multiples in an image. Photoshop is most widely considered in this type of editing, but other programs can also be used to achieve effect, such as Gimp. For those with no experience with creating "multiplicity" images with post processing, here are a few resources to help you get started: Photoshop Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/cyTpyZ Gimp Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/hChZ0Q Examples from Flickr: http://goo.gl/os2P65 Other Examples: http://goo.gl/DqlDtR 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.

Lotus Carroll1,770,754This 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.

paula contreras10,300There 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 04:00:00303

Lotus Carroll1,770,754This 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.

paula contreras10,300There 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. http://youtu.be/VYmFpYdwqLsYou are Beautiful2014-02-21 04:00:0047

Lotus Carroll1,770,754This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo. Just because you use a cell phone doesn't mean your self portrait has to be of the "facebook style" mobile or reflection variety. That little guy has a camera inside it, so treat it like one! Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait using only a cell phone to capture and process (no computer software post processing!). Your photo must have been captured this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Tutorial & Tips* Need some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing @110573952887886961621 made a tutorial about shooting cell phone photos to get you inspired - see it here: http://goo.gl/z3IZ23 He also posted a video of his process - see it here: http://goo.gl/vzcRHL *Remember these Do's and Don'ts to get the best photo:* *DO take the time to set up your shot thoughtfully. *DO invest time and effort and try more than once to get it right. *DO make sure your lens is clean. *DO take your photo in adequate light so it's not grainy, blurry, or dark. *DO put the cell phone down and use a timer - stop taking all your photos by holding the phone and pointing at yourself or a mirror. *DO try different angles for the best composition. *DO read the posts in our Tutorials Category and try the concepts and ideas you learn from them: http://goo.gl/uSUULE  *DO try different apps and see what works best for you. *DO be aware of your background! It makes a huge difference! Is there junk in the room behind you? If yes, it's not a good place to shoot. ETC. *DO NOT just slap a filter or cheesy effect on and call it a day - take the time to try different edits and pay attention to the elements of your photo.  *DO NOT point your phone at a mirror and take a reflection photo where we can see your phone. *DO NOT have your arms in the photo as you're holding the phone out in front of or above you. *DO NOT duckface. *DO NOT showcase your cleavage as the main subject. *Here's a list of Photo Apps you can try out:* Snapseed VSCOcam Retouch (cloning tool!)

Scott Jarvie409,076UPDATE: it's online now: http://youtu.be/-DItFCAg4jM  *We like to call this a "PLUS ONE PARTY"* Because people submit links to their albums and we look through the pictures and _*we plus one the pictures we like*_ in the album. It's my way of giving quick feedback to people about which pictures really catch my attention out of their images. It's quick and yet helpful. Last time we looked at over 120 albums *LIVE PUBLIC HANGOUT* Yep it'll be a live public hangout again. Shorter and more awesome than last time. So if you LINK us an album make sure you know they will be on video and then on youtube. We're both really nice people and with people pictures we worry about commentary for fear they're related to you or something. But we may make commentary and you gotta be alright with that as well.  The video won't be edited when it goes onto youtube. I'm basically saying: _*The easily offended need not apply*_ *THEME = PEOPLE PICTURES* @109486822103622036238 and myself have a separate project going on where we're spending dozens of hours researching to find great photographers and create the most awesome list of "people shooters" https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962871525684315897/posts/UMBDiPKJqKa So therefore we've made the theme this time to People pictures as well because that's what mood we're in. If you already have an album like that share it. Or maybe put together another one in the next 24hrs that you'd like us to go through.  Professional work, weddings, families, kids, selfies, street candids, models etc *JOIN IN* This time we'll be linking the albums and having people join us as we go through the pictures... so you may be getting a lot more plus ones (eyeballs) than normal. *FAQ* We won't be looking at non-people pictures even if they're in the album. We'd rather not look at crazy large albums so try to keep them under 50 (but we can be a bit lenient) Please submit open/public albums specially since other people than myself will be wanting to view. Make sure you're following myself (@100962871525684315897 ) and @109486822103622036238  who'll be the moderators of the video. We're looking for someone awesome to help out on the show and provide interesting insights about the people who's work we're looking through so we can focus on the task at hand. *SHARE* Let your friends who photograph people know that it's a fun and easy opportunity. *VIEW* Hope to see you there during the live viewing saturday night at 9pm Mountain time We'll be using this Event as the chat log for the event. *ALBUMS* 1. +susan marinello - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/109486822103622036238/albums/5787749627481544897 2. +scott jarvie - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/100962871525684315897/albums/5628519010157340641 3. +Jason Jakober - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/111397628815301589258/albums/5790838803220260353 4. +Paul R.

Trever McGhee83,695Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Gailen Mapes80,278Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera D-F - 3 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.2015-03-03 11:35:30150214

Gailen Mapes76,287Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera D-F - 4 of 30Note: 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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.2015-02-04 11:52:18145000

Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream.

I am strong - fit and fierce - and no longer feel like I need to hide who I am.  I suppose that may be why I am oddly fixated with the most recent album by Taylor Swift.  Yeah, that's right, the Tool, APC, Puscifer and general rock music lover is oddly fixated by Tay-Tay and I am okay with that too.  To be real, I love a lot of music, in general, and my only real requirement is that it makes me think or feel.

Anyway, on with the post...

So, since May of 2014, I have been working to get myself back in shape.  Having surgery in 2013 was a wake-up call.  I had a great series of interesting setbacks from leaving the crappy big box gym and dropping the over priced personal training, to a nice, small gym that makes me happy.

The Season of Giving

Yesterday, I put out a call to all of you creatives, crafters, artists, and most importantly, friends, to find out what you had going on in the online world for the holiday season.

I am doing something a little different this year, and I want to purchase a portion of the gifts for Christmas online and from my friends.  This ensures that my loved ones will receive unique (and sometimes one of a kind) gifts that will mean a lot to them while also supporting my small business friends.

In turn, I am hoping this will also allow my friends and fellow artists to have a wonderful holiday season as well!

Yesterday, I also had the chance to take a look at a few links from some of my friend's online shops so I created a collage of a few and the links to those e-stores are below:

12 Months of Make-Up

Make-Up Number 3: March

In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. - Coco Chanel

After the panelists weighed in for the next month, it was decided that March would be Vintage Victory Rolls, and I got well under way to figure out my concept, plan my makeup and obviously hair, and strategize the shoot.   

Since victory rolls are kind of self-explanatory, I didn't have to research much except for a few different ways to wrap them up based on my own hair length.  In addition to that, I referenced some starlets from the 1940's to get an idea on how I should rock the make-up.  I opted for a softer, simpler look since the hair would take center stage.

12 Months of Make-Up

Make-Up Number 3: March

In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. - Coco Chanel

After the panelists weighed in for the next month, it was decided that March would be Vintage Victory Rolls, and I got well under way to figure out my concept, plan my makeup and obviously hair, and strategize the shoot.   

Since victory rolls are kind of self-explanatory, I didn't have to research much except for a few different ways to wrap them up based on my own hair length.  In addition to that, I referenced some starlets from the 1940's to get an idea on how I should rock the make-up.  I opted for a softer, simpler look since the hair would take center stage.

Once I had the look, I had to think of how I wanted to shoot it.  

I decided to kill two shots with one session by creating my multiplicity shot for AoSP challenge, and also a nice close-up glamour shot for this project.  In both, I wanted to stick to a very vintage look all the way down to the processing.

I think it was a pretty good success.

What is it all about?
Earlier in January, I polled a few friends about new project I wanted to start called #12monthsofmakeup  and what they thought.  It was then that +Ralph Uy added it might be fun to let a group of willing panelists (aka anyone who wanted to join in on the circle) choose and vote on the concept for the next month.

So, I asked for anyone interested to to make a comment stating their interest as well as ideas to go into the idea pool for February (as I had January already planned), and I received a few responses as well as ideas for February (and now March onward).

Now, I want to invite anyone publicly to join the group, if you wish, to share ideas and/or vote on the upcoming theme each month.  All you have to do is say that you do, and you are added. Also, feel free to share ideas of makeups you wish to see me do.

How it works:
The first of each month, I will share a list of concepts/themes for make up to the panelists circle to vote on.

There will be one full week to vote.

UPDATE: Since we have an abundance of ideas, we are now doing a fun voting death match so to speak.  Certain themes go head to head until we reach a monthly winner!

After that week, the winning concept will be used in the month and the rest of the ideas go back into the pool for voting in the next month.  During the winning concept/theme reveal, I will also ask for any new ideas.

At some point in the month, before the end, I will shoot the image and post it with the hashtag   #12monthsofmakeup   publicly for everyone to see.

At that time, people will also have time to join the panel if they wish by doing exactly what I asked this month.

If it catches on, I may even throw out some exclusive hang-out invites to panelists to watch me work my magic!

If I end up with any other rules or processes, I will add as I go, but for now...

Enjoy! ♥___

Behind The Scenes

Some of you know me as the lady who does crazy make-ups and sometimes fancy portraits of myself; however, sometimes I get asked if I really do it all.  Do I do the make-up? Do I do the hair? Do I really set my own lighting? And, do I really get it all done by myself?

The answer is YES!

I thought, for the AoSP March Challenge Multiplicity shot, I would play off that theme of doing it all while creating my #12monthsofmakeup  Victory Roll look.

I struggled with the look because foolishly I forgot hairspray lol, but once the hair was done, the make-up was simple and classy to match the 1940's era. 

Very soon I will have the actual image processed for that project, but for now...

Enjoy your Sunday, my loverlies! ♥

Very soon I will have the actual image processed for that project, but for now...

Enjoy your Sunday, my loverlies! ♥

Another day, a different dream perhaps.

I created this image from my Alice #12monthsofmakeup  photoshoot series as a way to say thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday!

I make art for myself and for the enjoyment of my friends!

So, the best gift I gave myself (besides an awesome new pillow top) is making a new image to share!

Thanks my loverlies and enjoy! ♥

Get them while you can! Limited Edition Prints from the wonderful, and ultra talented +Rachel Tine!

Rose -
Very Important – Please Read

For those of you who don’t know, I was married once, and I have a beautiful and awesome 5 year old son from that ill-fated union. Due to abusive behavior, I won my divorce in 2012, and have been raising my son on my own ever since. In that time, I have earned my Bachelor’s degree in psychology and have started to get my freelance photography business off the ground. However, my ex-husband stopped paying his court-ordered child support 3 months ago, and in that time I have spent much of my savings while trying to expedite the process of building a financially viable photography business and providing for my son. In an attempt to stay afloat while I put the pedal to the metal with photography, I have decided to offer my first limited edition print sale. For this sale, I will be offering only 10 copies each (after which I will never print the image again) of any of the abandonment prints on my website (racheltinephotography.com/abandonments/), any of the images from my first published magazine editorial (racheltinephotography.com/beauty-portraits/), and the image featured in this post, which was just published on Vogue Italia’s website. All photographs will be printed on Kodak Endura Luster paper; the prices for this limited edition print sale are as follows:

8x12 - $50
10x15 - $75
12x18 - $100
16x24 - $120

Payments can be made through PayPal to racheltine@gmail.com; please be sure to indicate the name and size of the print that you are purchasing, as well as your mailing address. Non-limited edition prints of other images are available at lower price points; shoot me an email at racheltine@gmail.com for more info. Thank you in advance for your support. <3 <3 <3


Now, on to your regularly scheduled programming:

For #halfnekkidthursday ,  #tbt , and for #lyricallyinspired  from +Jason Jakober, +Tara Romasanta, +Amanda Recker and me, here’s a song to accompany a shot from my first time shooting a model (Lauren Arsenault) in an abandoned building:

#TheNational  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ef1nJWtkprU

“Today you were far away
and I didn't ask you why
What could I say
I was far away
You just walked away
and I just watched you
What could I say

How close am I to losing you

Tonight you just close your eyes
and I just watch you
slip away

How close am I to losing you

Hey, are you awake
Yeah I'm right here
Well can I ask you about today

How close am I to losing you
How close am I to losing.”


Thank you for your constant encouragement and support; I’ve grown so much since joining this community, and I look forward to what the future has in store! :)___Get them while you can! Limited Edition Prints from the wonderful, and ultra talented +Rachel Tine!

Multiplicity... The more the merrier... More of you to love... Me, myself, and I...

Take part in the fun challenge for March; the details are below in the original share!

This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: Multiplicity. What this means is create a self portrait where you appear in the image multiple times (2 or more, your choice). Get creative and think up an interesting scene you can use this effect on and then make your image.

Here is where you enter your ONE Multiplicity Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST March 31st, 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

There are several different ways to go about achieving this effect. In camera, you can use a long exposure and move around. Alternately, you can use post processing to create multiples in an image. Photoshop is most widely considered in this type of editing, but other programs can also be used to achieve effect, such as Gimp.

For those with no experience with creating "multiplicity" images with post processing, here are a few resources to help you get started:

Gimp Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/hChZ0Q

Examples from Flickr: http://goo.gl/os2P65
Other Examples: http://goo.gl/DqlDtR

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.

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.

12 Months of Make-Up

Make-Up Number 2: February

Madness Is Not A State of Mind... It's A Place.

After the panelists weighed in, it was decided that February would be Alice: Madness Returns, and I got well under way to figure out my concept, plan my makeup, and strategize the shoot.   

I did extensive research on various concept art and character models from the game.  Finally, I made the decision to mix the classic Alice skin with the Hysteria Mode.  I opted for some fun in the simpler make-up and costuming and then finished the rest of my artistic vision with some Photoshop magic.

What is it all about?
Earlier in January, I polled a few friends about new project I wanted to start called   #12monthsofmakeup  and what they thought.  It was then that +Ralph Uy added it might be fun to let a group of willingpanelis... more »

I did extensive research on various concept art and character models from the game.  Finally, I made the decision to mix the classic Alice skin with the Hysteria Mode.  I opted for some fun in the simpler make-up and costuming and then finished the rest of my artistic vision with some Photoshop magic.

What is it all about?
Earlier in January, I polled a few friends about new project I wanted to start called   #12monthsofmakeup  and what they thought.  It was then that +Ralph Uy added it might be fun to let a group of willing panelists (aka anyone who wanted to join in on the circle) choose and vote on the concept for the next month.

So, I asked for anyone interested to to make a comment stating their interest as well as ideas to go into the idea pool for February (as I had January already planned), and I received a few responses as well as ideas for February.

Now, I want to invite anyone publicly to join the group, if you wish, to share ideas and/or vote on the upcoming theme each month.  All you have to do is say that you do, and you are added. Also, feel free to share ideas of makeups you wish to see me do.

How it works:
The first of each month, I will share a list of concepts/themes for make up to the panelists circle to vote on.

There will be one full week to vote.

After that week, the winning concept will be used in the month and the rest of the ideas go back into the pool for voting in the next month.  During the winning concept/theme reveal, I will also ask for any new ideas.

At some point in the month, before the end, I will shoot the image and post it with the hashtag   #12monthsofmakeup  publicly for everyone to see.

At that time, people will also have time to join the panel if they wish by doing exactly what I asked this month.

If it catches on, I may even throw out some exclusive hang-out invites to panelists to watch me work my magic!

If I end up with any other rules or processes, I will add as I go, but for now...

Enjoy! ♥

Love Is...

Never Letting Go

I created this for a few reasons.  One, it was from my time with +The Traveling Shirt ; two, it went with something I had contemplated doing when I got the #pinkshirt  ; three, it went with a #lyricallyinspired  shot I had been planning to the song The Heart Wants What It Wants; and lastly, because the theme for the AoSP February Challenge was Love Is...

For me, once you have love, and a true love (whether spousal, family, parent-child bond), you don't let it go.  What I mean by this is that you work at it.  It won't always be easy, but it will always be worth it.

Namaste loverlies! ♥

Now, here is the low down on the challenge from the words of +Lotus Carroll :

This 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.

Is Love Cruel? Is Love Kind? Is it something else? What is love? Let's see how you can conceptualize this with your self portraits!

Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "Love Is..." theme. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST February 28th, 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.

Inspiration

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

I've thrown some of my own self portraits that would loosely fit this theme into an album here: http://goo.gl/zZHbNG

Here are search results for "love self portrait" on Flickr, a great place to view fine art photography, especially self portraiture: http://goo.gl/LkptQc

Halfway Through

I have been a little absent from the Goog-sphere recently, but not because of any love lost; it is because I am working hard in the gym to complete a 90-day challenge. I am eating well, lifting heavy, rocking the 5x5s, and staying super busy.

In honor of making it to the halfway point - day forty-five - I thought I would share the side-by-side from Day 1 to Day 45 for #webcamwednesday with the awesomesauce +Isabelle Fortin

Enjoy beasties! <3

12 Months of Make-Up

This was actually a very simple make-up to fit a versatile set of costume changes from #thepinkshirt  to black dress attire.

Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream.

I am strong - fit and fierce - and no longer feel like I need to hide who I am.  I suppose that may be why I am oddly fixated with the most recent album by Taylor Swift.  Yeah, that's right, the Tool, APC, Puscifer and general rock music lover is oddly fixated by Tay-Tay and I am okay with that too.  To be real, I love a lot of music, in general, and my only real requirement is that it makes me think or feel.

Anyway, on with the post...

So, since May of 2014, I have been working to get myself back in shape.  Having surgery in 2013 was a wake-up call.  I had a great series of interesting setbacks from leaving the crappy big box gym and dropping the over priced personal training, to a nice, small gym that makes me happy.

In being happy, I found awesomesauce support from bodybuilders, gym junkies, fellow healthy ladies and lady lifters, and the like, which have helped me with direction and friendship while on my fitness journey.

This shot was about sticking a knife in the old and fiercely taking my life by the horns.  I am the controller of how I am, and I rather like it these days!

Namaste and enjoy, my loverlies! ♥

There Can Be Only One Me

“I am a rare species, not a stereotype.” ― Ivan E. Coyote

I love to inspire people to go beyond their comfort zones to find a realness and true-ness within themselves.  I make art, write words, and create things to act as a vehicle for that kind of inspiration.  I do this sort of thing in the virtual world as well as in the real world.

Even more so now in the real world with my crazy workout schedule and fitness challenge.  It has become infectious and people are joining with me, and asking me for my opinions on things.

On that note, it has given me a lot more confidence in myself to be who I am, and say what I want to say.  Live the way I want to live.  By nature, I am calm and lead a pretty peaceful existence, but one thing that does bother me is my shadow.

On that note, it has given me a lot more confidence in myself to be who I am, and say what I want to say.  Live the way I want to live.  By nature, I am calm and lead a pretty peaceful existence, but one thing that does bother me is my shadow.

This shadow started following me in 2009/2010 and has tried to add itself to many things I have put myself in.  Attaching itself to friends I have made and so on.  Most recently, I have had to block IPs and privatize a lot of my life because I just want to be free of this darkness.

It has been a good move and it has filled me with a great amount of satisfaction to step out from behind that shadow to be me.  I have found a new-found sense of freedom; like a bird let loose from a cage.  I spoke about it some on other social media sites, but I just don't feel like I need to sensor my mouth or my emotions towards anything because I am more confident and happy this way.

One of my favorite quotes says it best:

"You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should've behaved better." - Anne Lamott

Behave well, and you will never fear what anyone has to say about you, and if you are worried about what someone might say, then behave better! ;)

Without further ado, I present my entry to the "Faceless" AoSP January Challenge.

Enjoy and namaste loverlies! ♥

Joyful Glamour

This year has been interesting, to say the least.  I have seen a lot of good and even seen my share of bad times.  I graduated with my digital design degree and I have had lots of changes at work.  People have come into my life and some have left - some have even left their mortal coils.

Still, joy is a very personal thing.

I rejoice in knowing those who have passed, and I feel joy for all the things I have accomplished this year.  I have become quite serious about my health and taken to strength training and weight lifting; this is something I plan on expanding in the upcoming year as well.

These are the types of things that make me glow.

Each of us are different, though.  It was actually quite difficult for me to come up with something that I thought would emote happiness in such a way that befitted me.

This year has been interesting, to say the least.  I have seen a lot of good and even seen my share of bad times.  I graduated with my digital design degree and I have had lots of changes at work.  People have come into my life and some have left - some have even left their mortal coils.

Still, joy is a very personal thing.

I rejoice in knowing those who have passed, and I feel joy for all the things I have accomplished this year.  I have become quite serious about my health and taken to strength training and weight lifting; this is something I plan on expanding in the upcoming year as well.

These are the types of things that make me glow.

Each of us are different, though.  It was actually quite difficult for me to come up with something that I thought would emote happiness in such a way that befitted me.

I thought of taking pictures with my daughter, since she makes me happy; I thought of even holding images of my family since they are also another place for joy with me, and then finally it hit me today.

Creating something from nothing is one of my most happy outlets.  So, I pulled a few of the holiday decorations out, did a smokey beauty makeup, and then began fashioning a head piece and harness to allow me to create the image you see.

It is joyful glamour because it made me happy to create - it encompassed my favorite elements of photography and design.

So, let's all go say goodbye to 2014, and usher in 2015 right! 

Enjoy! ♥

Out of Mind

As a woman, I have heard it said on more than one occasion that I am 'out of my mind' for one reason or another, but what I love most about this song is that it isn't about the woman being out of her mind.  It is about someone else being out of their mind for thinking that they could be easily gotten over.

While this isn't an issue with me at this stage in my life, since I love my boyfriend very much, it took me back to a time in my life when there were lovers and friends that were not so easily replaced, and to work this shot (and the Tove Lo series), I just thought about what it was like to lose and what it would feel like now, if it were the case.

I was able to create this #lyricallyinspired shot to go with Tove Lo's Out of Mind by stepping into a role. I think that is a beautiful thing about conceptualizing self portraiture; I am able to step into a character or feeling and then portray it to the best of my abilities.

I just hope I am doing the +The Traveling Shirt justice, and can't wait for the holidays to calm down so I can pick it back up in January for the week before shipping it back off to the next recipient.  May #thepinkshirt  continue to inspire me and all the others when each receives it!

Here are the lyrics that most influenced the concept for the shot:

Happy
Used to be
Together
You and me

Things die
Drift apart
Wait for
A new start

Denying
Think you'll fade away
Keep lying
I can hear you say
You're 'in touch with reality'
Baby, I'd say

Are you kidding me?

You're out of your mind
To think that I could keep you
Out of mind.

Habits

Sometimes time isn't on our side, and we mean to do things and we run out of time to do them.  In the case of creating a #lyricallyinspired  shot to go with Tove Lo's Habits, it was one such thing.  I had the shot completely conceptualized, but seemed to put the shot on the back burner with the holidays, gym schedule, and family time getting a priority.

It wasn't until +The Traveling Shirt made its way to my house that I finally prioritized a little time to get this one done.  I honestly had no idea how big #thepinkshirt  would be on me until I tried it on and I can tell you, I am swimming in it.  I could belt it and make it a dress; but, I digress.

I chose this song because it reminds me of a time when I was like that.  Not necessarily 'high', but when I kept myself numb to avoid feeling things too much.  I even departed frommy typic... more »

I chose this song because it reminds me of a time when I was like that.  Not necessarily 'high', but when I kept myself numb to avoid feeling things too much.  I even departed from my typical portraiture style to tell a story, which is also not really something I do often.  I think I have to be moved by something (in this case, a song and its lyrics) to create in this fashion.

Anyway, here are the lyrics that most influenced the concept for the shot:

I eat my dinner in my bathtub
Then I go to sex clubs
Watching freaky people gettin' it on
It doesn't make me nervous
If anything I'm restless
Yeah, I've been around and I've seen it all

I get home, I got the munchies
Binge on all my Twinkies
Throw up in the tub
Then I go to sleep
And I drank up all my money
Dazed and kinda lonely

You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

I hope you enjoy and Namaste! ♥

Lips, Barely Sealed

Yesterday +The Traveling Shirt found its way to my door, and I had a few quick minutes before dinner and working out to try it on for size.  This is what happened when I wanted to sneak a quick glimpse of the shirt to all those who wondered where it was...

For now, this is just a taste of what is to come!

And if you want to know what is in the works, you will just have to stay tuned because I am pretty sure I have no idea what will come next!

Namaste beasties! ♥

G+ Locals and Indie Artists For The Holidays

First, I would like to thank everyone who has shared or will share links to artists (G+ or indie artists you know or frequent) for me to look at, potentially shop from, and allow me to help publicize them to give some recognition to those who are a smaller business.

Secondly, I would like to thank everyone who has shared these posts with their circles as well.  When I started this, I honestly did not know if anyone would even read the posts since they were not of my own photos or full of deeply intelligent thoughts.

You have all made my heart smile with this type of love for the community and fellow artists, and that is a great gift during any time of the year.

That being said, I have a new list of people today, and they are as follows:

A Quick Afterlife Feature

You may have seen my post or call about spreading the local love for small business, but I wanted to create a feature on someone I found through Instagram (http://instagram.com/tootsievoncupcakes) who makes amazing and bizarrely eclectic jewelry and oddities!

Meet Afterlife Artwork located in Orlando, FL.  (https://www.etsy.com/shop/Afterlifeartwork) on +Etsy .

Here is a little more about the shop and the artist:

Giving the beauty of bones and animals a second chance. All bones used in my work were cleaned and processed by me.

The Season of Giving

Yesterday, I put out a call to all of you creatives, crafters, artists, and most importantly, friends, to find out what you had going on in the online world for the holiday season.

I am doing something a little different this year, and I want to purchase a portion of the gifts for Christmas online and from my friends.  This ensures that my loved ones will receive unique (and sometimes one of a kind) gifts that will mean a lot to them while also supporting my small business friends.

In turn, I am hoping this will also allow my friends and fellow artists to have a wonderful holiday season as well!

Yesterday, I also had the chance to take a look at a few links from some of my friend's online shops so I created a collage of a few and the links to those e-stores are below:

Finally, A Challenge

So, a few days ago, I was challenged by +ted kelly to the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge here on the Goog, and I thought, "What can I do to make this a bit more challenging?"

Well, I decided to take previously processed colorized images and make them work as creative or interesting black and white shots.

For Day 5, the final day, which was created Wednesday night due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I chose an image that was a big step for me in terms of lighting, processing, and stylizing...

I selected one of my favorite images from my living doll series.

This image had a very solid, juxtaposed lighting set-up and I wanted to play off that when creating the black and white version - It may actually fall along more of a monochromatic image, but it was black and white until I made some selective color adjustments to a... more »

Since I don't call out people, if you are reading this and want to join in, please do!

So, in closing...

What It Is To Be Thankful

As many of us prepare for the hustle and bustle of the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas), I just wanted to share some things I am thankful for:

1. I am thankful for my health.  I have been hitting the gym since May, and while there have been some crazy up's and down's, I am getting to be in impeccable shape.  Strong and happy is where I am most days.

2. A wonderful family.  Without them, I don't know what kind of hot mess I would be.  They are the ones who show unconditional love daily.

3. A tremendous support network of friends.  You don't need a lot when they are as good as the ones I have.  They keep me sane (ish).

4. My virtual friends. While not always physically present, you are some of the most wonderful, inspiring, and encouraging people I know.

5. I am thankful for my gym. This i... more »

4. My virtual friends. While not always physically present, you are some of the most wonderful, inspiring, and encouraging people I know.

5. I am thankful for my gym.  This is my place of zen.  

6. A roof over my head.  Many people do not have this and I appreciate it even when it is messy, something breaks or just smells like puppies.

7. The luxuries I can afford and the charities I can support.  I try to give back when I can, and also remember that I shouldn't restrict myself from things like a new shirt or pair of glasses because I want to save my money to spend on others.  Sometimes you just have to take care of yourself.

8. Local markets and stores.  They really are the lifeblood of the community.

9. My camera.  I am thankful for my camera as it has helped me see myself and the world in a different way.

10. Social Media.  Without social media and other online avenues like the world of gaming, I don't think I would hav learned to push out of my introverted shell, and I certainly would not have made such wonderful friends.

While not a traditional webcam, I am sharing this little image and message with #webcamwednesday because one of them most thoughtful and amazing people, +Isabelle Fortin, is a person I am so grateful to have in my life. xoxo

I Don't See The Challenge Here

So, a few days ago, I was challenged by +ted kelly to the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge here on the Goog, and I thought, "What can I do to make this a bit more challenging?"

Well, I decided to take previously processed colorized images and make them work as creative or interesting black and white shots.

For Day 4, I chose an image that went beyond a simple portrait...

I selected the picture I took of +Patti Colston's pup, Paris, because it WAS a portrait, but it was an animal portrait that I used many of the techniques that I employ when processing a people portrait.  I enhanced the eyes, brought out the details of her coat, drew attention to the face, and sharpened the details to make it crisp and defined.

This image had a a warm feeling in color, but there were a few colors in the background that I found a smidge distracting so bringing this into a BnW world allowed for me to remove those distractions in a logical manner.  After applying a BnW adjustment, I used some selective color adjustment layers to mess with the neutral and black 'blacks' to give it the desired tone.

So, until tomorrow...

Enjoy your Wednesday and Namaste! ♥

A Challenge Is A Departure From The Norm

So, a few days ago, I was challenged by +ted kelly to the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge here on the Goog, and I thought, "What can I do to make this a bit more challenging?"

Well, I decided to take previously processed colorized images and make them work as creative or interesting black and white shots.

For Day 3, I chose an image that I took in an unorthodox way...

This is a color scanography image!

This image had a vibe of melancholy that I thought would benefit in black and white.  I took it into PS and added a B&W adjustment that allowed me to control how the colors reacted to the treatment, but to be honest, the colors were very muted due to it being a scan. In addition, I used some selective color adjustment layers to mess with the neutral and black 'blacks' to give it thede... more »

For Day 3, I chose an image that I took in an unorthodox way...

This is a color scanography image!

This image had a vibe of melancholy that I thought would benefit in black and white.  I took it into PS and added a B&W adjustment that allowed me to control how the colors reacted to the treatment, but to be honest, the colors were very muted due to it being a scan. In addition, I used some selective color adjustment layers to mess with the neutral and black 'blacks' to give it the desired tone.

So, until tomorrow...

Enjoy your Tuesday and Namaste! ♥___

Challenges, A Plenty

So, a few days ago, I was challenged by +ted kelly  to the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge here on the Goog, and I thought, "What can I do to make this a bit more challenging?"

Well, I decided to take previously processed colorized images and make them work as creative or interesting black and white shots.

For Day 2, I chose something or rather a certain image that I have always been in love with...

My crazy punk beauty shot that has a sense of style, glamor, and fun lines.  Actually, I love this shot so much, it is on my design resume LOL!

This image had pop with the red/pink hair and the eye color, but I thought the lines and contrasts might be fun in black and white.  I took it into PS and added a B&W adjustment that allowed me to control how the colors reacted to the treatment.

Always Up For A Challenge

So, a few days ago, I was challenged by +ted kelly to the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge here on the Goog, and I thought, "What can I do to make this a bit more challenging?"

Well, I decided to take previously processed colorized images and make them work as creative or interesting black and white shots.

For Day 1, I chose something more recent and very much outside my typical processing techniques...

Since this was one part experiment, and one part happy accident, I am not really going to share the process in detail, but I will say that for some reason I just like it on this particular shot.

So, until tomorrow...

Enjoy your Sunday and Namaste! ♥

Don't Believe The Fairy Tale

For months and months and months and months, I was planning a Maleficent portrait, but I was quite indecisive on how to proceed.  Should I go classic cartoon, or if I go modern, there are so many options based on the way Angelina Jolie looked throughout the movie.

Well, after a lot of research and conversations with my mini-me, we decided that a beauty make-up with the horns and tribal accents (to play off the beginning 'faerie' look in the movie) was the way to go.

I figured I had worn enough wigs and and face paint to last me a bit of time, so I went with a more traditional and movie-inspired look.

I do hope you enjoy!

Namaste beasties! ♥

Split Tone Challenge | Day 5

For the final day of the #splittonefivedaychallenge that I was challenged to by +Sharon Jeannette I decided to use the recent shot from my Poison Sally series.  There is something about this image, perhaps it is the details, that I felt made it an excellent candidate for a split tone experiment. 

This image was spot on in color, so I simply desaturated it and then applied colors in shadow and highlight to create what you see below.

_______________________________________________

Typically, I adjust tones to either correct color due to light pollution or to enhance a drab looking scene of colors, but I branched away from split toning after I got a really good handle on LR and PS as artistic tools.

Going back and really embracing smart choices in split toning is something that I am going to challenge myself to do over the next three days in this, so even if the images are old, I love the fact that they are being re-imagined into something new that evokes a different set of feelings and emotions!

I don't typically call people out, so I offer an open invitation to anyone reading this to join on in!

And on that note, since I have hit the fifth day...

Enjoy and Namaste! ♥___

Split Tone Challenge | Day 4

For the #splittonefivedaychallenge  that I was challenged to by +Sharon Jeannette  I decided to take yet another newer image that was never processed before and chose a split tone that was not nearly as saturated because the color only need to enhance the details that were showcased in it.

Split Tone Challenge | Day 3

For the #splittonefivedaychallenge  that I was challenged to by +Sharon Jeannette I decided to take a newer image that was never processed before and chose a split tone that may have been a bit saturated, but I thought did the macro image justice.

Split Tone Challenge | Day 2

For the #splittonefivedaychallenge that I was challenged to by +Sharon Jeannette I decided to take another older image that I created at the end of last year and choose a split tone that I thought resonated with the emotional expression of the image.

In Case You Missed The Hang-Out

I know +Isabelle Fortin was a little disappointed to miss out on the hang-out fun when I created Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas last weekend, but I can contribute a shot for #webcamwednesday (even though this is not a classic webcam shot) of me at my desk/make-shift make-up station in the completed face-painted look!

It is kind of funny seeing it without all the other props and costuming details...

Enjoy and Namaste! ♥
