We are open for any artistic interpretation that you may bring to your selfy. *A big thanks to +C.J. Sros for the use (or re-use) of his fantastic selfy from last year as the event cover.* Selfy Sunday is the cornerstone event of The Art of the Self Portrait community. There are 17 moderators who can assist you along the way with SPP. This Community was designed as a place to share self portraits and to learn, grow, and challenge one another. The Selfy Sunday Project allows everyone to share their results on a bi-weekly basis all in one event.  ____ Selfy Sunday FAQ can be found here. http://goo.gl/ngQeF Please check there first if you have any questions. Thanks _ UPLOADING The event will open for uploading at 9:00 PM EDT. You can upload your photo by viewing the event and clicking on the "Add Photos" button. This is a Public event open to everyone.

Thomas Hawk7,939,590The one and only @111863388502434056486 Guru @103519655975029093996 is coming to town and we are going to celebrate in style.  Join us on Thursday, October 11th for a special dinner / photowalk.   We are going to start the evening off at 5:30pm at Henry Hunan's on Sansome Street in San Francisco (note there are several Henry Hunan's, this is the one on Sansome in North Beach).  We'll enjoy some of San Francisco's best chinese food and then head up to go shoot the tallest building in SF, the Transamerica Building at sunset/dusk.  We'll shoot the building from the Montgomery Street overlook -- one of the best locations to shoot This iconic William Pereira spire from.   Afterwards we'll float around North Beach shooting more of the historic architecture and night life before ending up the night at Specs' Twelve Adler Museum for a few later evening adult beverages.   Specs' is a throwback to old school San Francisco that the SF Weekly describes as "one of the few bars left where you can ask for a martini and get a cold glass of gin and a little vermouth without having to answer a bunch of damn fool questions." Rumor has it the smoothest dude alive @101651096660571767183 will also be joining us from NYC and @105873814765821560444 will be up from Los Angeles.   What a great night for photography this will be.  Come on out for a great G+ Photography evening!A San Francisco Dinner/Photowalk with Gordon Laing2012-10-11 17:30:00136

Last year I started photographing the coastline near my home, specifically that black ribbon of awesome we know as Highway One.
They are actually repaving this road now, so expect more shots like this over the summer.... lucky me.

Scott Creek © +Barry Blanchard 

The Central California Coastline always delivers. This location is called Scott Creek, named after the same Scott our local community of Scotts Valley is named after.

+DJI Inspire Pro/X5 Lens, two shot panoramic. For this one I used a +Formatt-Hitech custom GND (Firecrest). I will be non-stop testing these filters.

There's something very magical about the light this time of the year, that's a fact.

There are a few of us that got together a few years ago. We were on a mission to be able to record a story through the eyes of a bird.

Lynda.com felt that this story should be told, and we agreed.

Sit back and see the adventure we took on, through our eyes.

Mark Johnson, Russell Preston Brown, Eric Cheng, Randy Jay Braun, Stacy Weskerna Garlington, Romeo Durscher and myself hope you will all enjoy this as much as we did. Heck, we lived it.

It's been awhile, yes. Sunsets are back.

There's something that happens to me when I set on the edge of the world. One thing is for certain: I need to do this more often.

The Sea-Stack © Barry Blanchard

I've been wondering how to get this shot for some time now. All I had to do was put my DJI Inspire Pro in the right place at the right time.

Camera used: X5
Lens: Olympus 12mm
Filter: Formatt Hitech (GND made by me).
ISO 100
F/Stop: 8
Shutter speed: 1/30th. (I will go back there and get that number up a bit).

Location: just north of Davenport, California

Well, I'll come clean. 

I've not touched my DSLR and tripod since August.

I'm going to keep pushing the boundaries with my flying tripod instead. 

Flowers, you'll have to wait a bit, but I will be back.

Long exposure shots with a quadcopter? Easier than you think. Here's another X5 shot via DJI's Inspire 1 with their new MFT camera.

Sorry tripod, but we may have to break up for a bit.

In the foreground is Panther Beach. Beyond that strip of land you see is what we call Hole In The Wall Beach, as you walk through a natural arch to get access to it. 

Both are located just north of Santa Cruz, CA on scenic Highway 1. 

I do love sunsets, that's a given. I name my pictures of them by the date I take them. My passion as of late is shooting them from the air. 

This one was taken with the Inspire 1 from +DJI. Camera used: their new X5 MFT. I make my own GND's for these types of shots. 

Enjoy and feel free to share, as always.

Just north of Santa Cruz, California you'll find a beach many of us locals covet for surfing and photography. It's (of course) four miles up the road from our city limits.

Here's a shot I took with the new X5 camera from DJI. 

Not much in the way of clouds, but hey.. there's a great sea-stack there that always steals the show.

When out shooting with my DSLR, I usually carry some sort of aerial rig with me as well. As I stood up far on a cliff with my Canon camera, I zoomed down onto the vacant beach below to grab a few more views with my +DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter.

Not a terrible shot if you ask me.

Highway One, Looking south towards Greyhound Rock SP, Santa Cruz County.

Last year I started photographing the coastline near my home, specifically that black ribbon of awesome we know as Highway One.
They are actually repaving this road now, so expect more shots like this over the summer.... lucky me.

Shot with the Canon 5D Mark III flying high with the +DJI S1000 octocopter.
