Lotus Carroll1,777,891This is the Event for our July Self Portrait Challenge: Silhouettes. What is meant by this? This means that you'll create an image of yourself in silhouette: as a dark shape or outline against a lighter background. Here is where you enter your ONE Silhouette Self Portrait. Your photo(s) must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST July 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* I wrote a tutorial with some tips and advice about silhouette self portraiture  - check it out here: http://goo.gl/wJXCSC and then try it yourself! 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.

Jeff Sullivan2,006,924+Lori Hibbett and I and I will try to be shooting on the rocks by around 6:30 to capture golden hour light. Sunset is at 7:18, so the best sky color will be from then until 7:40 or so. Then we'll have some "blue hour" twilight for another 20-30 minutes, the light painting can start by 8, and stars will be gradually strengthening from then through 8:30 for night shots. If we're getting some good light and reflections off the beach making light orbs and so on, we can shoot to 9 or whenever we get thirsty. No problem if you're late given work, school and weekday traffic, we should be able to stay entertained shooting in the changing light for at least 2-2.5 hours.  We'll go to a bar or restaurant for another hour or two after that. This free social event is open to all; you're welcome to bring your photographer friends (on Flickr, Meetup, 500px, from your local photography club, etc.) We're looking forward to seeing those of you we've met out shooting in recent years, and meeting those of you we haven't shot with yet! We'd like to explore the area known as Hospitals Reef or Draper Villas, the rocks adjacent to Coast Boulevard Park 0.7 miles south of La Jolla Cove (see map).  We'll also shoot El Matador State Beach in Malibu April 11 and Little Corona Beach April 14.Sunset Photowalk La Jolla Monday April 152013-04-15 18:30:0030

It was a strange feeling actually – to be standing on this opulent mega structure in the middle of the desert, miles away from the city, and with nobody around. Half the lights were dead too.

Cody

This week's assignment for my B&W group was "high key."  I've got a white dog; piece of cake, right? Not so much. Turns out, Cody is exceedingly camera-shy, so getting a shot that comes close to looking like what I see when I'm not holding a camera was tough. In the end, I got my shot, and Cody got a snack. Good boy!

Short but Sweet.
Went to Joshua Tree National Park last night with +Phillip Colla to shoot the eclipse and a few other things. This is this morning's moon at total eclipse -- the shortest total eclipse of the century. Using a star tracker on my tripod helped to get a much sharper image than I could have obtained otherwise.

Amazing shots; wildlife in action.

I saw Wild Kingdom in action yesterday: killer whales preying upon California sea lions. Classified as Biggs transient orcas, these individuals are well known (CA51) for terrorizing other marine mammals along the Southern California coast. “Biggs transients” are one of four distinct populations ...___Amazing shots; wildlife in action.

This is from an outing last spring with astro-photo guru +Phillip Colla; we played around with numerous lighting techniques on these windmills for hours, and ended up with several that were quite beautiful.

Standing Firm

The Children's Pool in La Jolla has been a source of controversy recently.  Its defining breakwater was originally constructed to provide a sheltered beach area for children to safely play in the water.  About 10 years ago, harbor seals began taking over the beach, and now use it as a breeding ground.  As a result, it is off-limits for human use.  Passions run high on both sides; the people who would like to use it (primarily parents and divers who would like a calm area of water, and who point out the fact the man-made shelter was made specifically for the benefit of people) are on one side, and those who champion the use by seals (it's the only harbor seal rookery on the Southern California mainland) are on the other.  Being both a nature lover and a diver, I can appreciate both sides' arguments.  Through the unrelenting swirling storm of protests, citycouns... more »

Standing Firm

The Children's Pool in La Jolla has been a source of controversy recently.  Its defining breakwater was originally constructed to provide a sheltered beach area for children to safely play in the water.  About 10 years ago, harbor seals began taking over the beach, and now use it as a breeding ground.  As a result, it is off-limits for human use.  Passions run high on both sides; the people who would like to use it (primarily parents and divers who would like a calm area of water, and who point out the fact the man-made shelter was made specifically for the benefit of people) are on one side, and those who champion the use by seals (it's the only harbor seal rookery on the Southern California mainland) are on the other.  Being both a nature lover and a diver, I can appreciate both sides' arguments.  Through the unrelenting swirling storm of protests, city counsel regulations and legal action, the breakwater stands firm and unyielding.

Capture: I wanted a long-ish exposure to provide movement to the water.  That meant either pulling out the ND filter, or getting there early.  I chose the latter, as I always love the light just before dawn.  I shot for an hour, with my shots starting out at 30 seconds and getting progressively shorter as the day lightened.  After reviewing 170 images, I felt this shot, at 0.6 seconds, conveyed the turbulent scene that I was looking for best.___

Denver Sunrise
While in Denver last week, I got up at 0'dark-hundred each day with the hope of getting some nice color in the sky for a good sunrise.  The first two days were pretty gray.  Not to be deterred, on the second night, I scouted a few locations where, if a nice sunrise occurred, I could get it behind the Denver skyline.  The next morning I was rewarded.

I'm heading to Denver tonight for work, and will be staying over on Saturday to see the City and surrounding area.  Is there anyplace that I just cannot miss while I'm there?  I'm interested in shooting some architecture, and landscape, if possible.

Also, is there someplace not too far away where I can get a shot of a nice, snowy mountain at night where I'm facing SW?  Thanks!

Comet Lovejoy
Although the skies are still pretty bright from the almost-full moon, Comet Lovejoy is getting to the point where it's visible again.  This was taken last night.  I pointed the lens in the direction where I knew it would be (based on a star app I have) and took a few shots.  There in the corner of one was a green haze.  The sky is too washed out from the moon to see the tail.  In a few days, you should be able to see it with the naked eye before the moon rises.  Look to the southeast, to the right of Orion.

For day 4 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  , to which I was nominated by +Lisa Co.  Sometimes, my days are longer than others.  I'm sure you can relate.

One shot, two ways to process it.  This was taken during the blue hour, about 30 minutes before sunrise.  The color version is almost straight out of the camera.  The b&w version, not so much.

Skyline Startrail with Meteor & Iridium Flare
I got up a 0'dark hundred the other morning to get a shot of an Iridium flare over the downtown skyline.  (Iridium satellites are a fleet of sat phone satellites which have a very reflective area, resulting in predictable "flares" which look somewhat like a meteor streak in a long exposure shot of the sky.)  Not only did I get that (the almost vertical line below and to the right of the North Star), but I got a meteor, which streaked across the sky just 1 minute before the flare, in almost the exact same location.  How lucky is that??  This is 25 minute star trail; about half of what I prefer, but I wasn't thinking clearly at such an early hour and didn't set the camera correctly.

If anyone can tell me how to reduce the banding in the gradients, I'd really appreciate it!

I have a client in the Czech Republic who would like to buy a print.  Is it better to have the print made here and ship it there, or to print it over there?  If it's better to print over there (which seems logical), does anyone have a recommendation for a good printing company?  Thanks!
