Lotus Carroll1,777,791This 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.

Art through the Apeture Photography (Paula)11,444There 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 04:00:00300

The Weather Channel3,076,010*Upload your photos to this Event on 9/19 or using the #sunsetday hashtag in a public post to celebrate #sunsetday!* Join us for an exciting 24-hour event as we send summer into the sunset in global fashion. We are asking our Google+ audience from around the world to grab your favorite camera on the evening of September 19 and snap your own unique sunset from your corner of the globe. We want to see all types of sunsets in a variety of settings; a city skyline, a beach resort, a beautiful countryside, a desert landscape, a dense forest. *Wherever you may be, please share/upload your sunset image with this event page on September 19.* You can also participate outside of this event page by submitting a public photo post and tagging with #sunsetday. A select number of our favorite photos will be shown on The Weather Channel and accompany a slideshow on weather.com. Other favorites will be posted and rotated through as the cover photo on both +The Weather Channel and the +Google+ Photos  Google+ page. Note: *Only photos uploaded and posted to the event page or associated with the hashtag #sunsetday on Sep 19 will be considered* We hosted two Hangouts On Air in preparation for Sunset Day. The first hangout focused on the meteorology behind sunsets including the reason behind the beautiful array of colors.  The second hangout concentrated on the art of sunset photography. Expert photographers well known to the Google+ community talked about their techniques in capturing the perfect sunset. Links to both HOA videos are posted below. *HANGOUT SCHEDULE* 1.

Even Strong People Need Help Now and Again

I seriously never thought I would find myself doing this but I can think of no other alternative. What I find most ironic is a comment I made last night on someone else's post (don't want to call him or anyone else out), before I even knew this was coming:

"I've always believed that only the strongest people are given the toughest tests, for whatever reason "fate" chooses. Those lessons strengthen the will, the resolve and the character. In the end, those people have a greater impact on the people who come to know them. They become a beacon, a light that leads the way for others who are lost. You're a shining example."

I have seen some challenging tests and always come out stronger for having survived them. I will survive this one too. I don't want to lose my core in the process.... more »

Apple Question

A friend of mine is having MAJOR problems! (Maybe it's contagious...) Nearly all of his images are being corrupted - thousands! He bought a new 2TB external HD, thinking that might solve his problem. Same thing happened again. The problem is consistent with every camera: Nikon, Sony and Leica. It's happening with older images as well as newly processed. They are suddenly no longer usable. In Bridge, they show, as you can see, as huge files but tiny images. Nothing will open them - neither LR, Photoshop nor any other program, yet the thumbnails are still visible in Bridge.

The selected image below is 21.59mb yet is only 256 x 171 ... does not compute.

Ideas?? I'm thinking he has an OS issue perhaps.

Chrome Help

I'm having major issues with Chrome. The other day when I started Chrome I got a pop-up that said "Your Preferences file has been deleted or corrupted." Now, I have to sign back into Chrome each time I start it. Plus, things aren't working right. For instance, I just now deleted my history ... first for a week. Nothing was deleted. So I deleted for 4 weeks. Still nothing was deleted. I was signed in when I deleted, closed Chrome, restarted, nothing is deleted from history.

It doesn't even remember my Google password anymore. I have to type it each time. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I've been VERY busy building a new website over the last few days. It's a (very poorly documented) Wordpress template so it was more work than it should've been. There are still some issues - no menus on a couple of pages. I'm still trying to figure that out.

I'm also still trying to decide if I want to leave the different type of slideshow on the home page or change it to the play/navigate like the rest of the site.

Here 'tis. Any feedback is welcome, especially if you find any errors. I've found a couple - images that didn't load for some reason. I still have work to do.

The Competition

I'm not sure I've seen +Gary Munroe hatless before yesterday. Ironically, the first I saw him - indoors, sitting at a table in a coffee shop - I nearly didn't recognize him because he wasn't wearing his signature baseball cap! Hahaha! That really was my first thought when I realized it was him.

When his cap fell off, I knew this would be the photo I'd post.

Yes, this was a competition. I won, of course. He'll tell you a different story. Okay, I admit, he bested me.... sort of.

Great to finally meet you, Gary, and thanks for giving me a ride back to my car. :)

It's Complex
I'm Getting a Complex -- TeeHee

Now I'm attracting asses in triplet.

(Is joke, nobody get bent.)
As promised, the rest of the story.
So, I took the long way home from Red Rock Canyon after the storm... when suddenly...

Why did the asses cross the road? A better question might be, why did they cross right in front of me?

For a portrait, of course!

(Bonus: why are they called asses? The scientific name is equus africanus asinus. "Ass" comes from the last word.)

Lost in a Chase

Yeah, I got lost. Great light show when I left Mandalay Bay this afternoon. It fizzled before I got to Red Rock. But that's okay, at least I was using my camera for a change!

As is usual with me ... there's more to this story! Stay tuned! :)

Still working things out and have had two incredibly busy days, sorry!!! I'll have an update soon, hopefully.

I'm going to crash Photoshop World today.

Meanwhile... this is what I think about IRS. Bahahaha! Hope you enjoy!

Even Strong People Need Help Now and Again

I seriously never thought I would find myself doing this but I can think of no other alternative. What I find most ironic is a comment I made last night on someone else's post (don't want to call him or anyone else out), before I even knew this was coming:

"I've always believed that only the strongest people are given the toughest tests, for whatever reason "fate" chooses. Those lessons strengthen the will, the resolve and the character. In the end, those people have a greater impact on the people who come to know them. They become a beacon, a light that leads the way for others who are lost. You're a shining example."

I have seen some challenging tests and always come out stronger for having survived them. I will survive this one too. I don't want to lose my core in the process.... more »

If anyone knows of any other recourse, I would appreciate that information as well. I think my accountant may have given me bad advice about the Offer in Compromise. She told me I cannot make an Offer in Compromise until I have been making payments for a year. That seems to be erroneous information. Can someone "in the know" advise?

I hope you will at least take the time to read my story and share it. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!___

Photographers ... Input Please

Who has a business page?
I'm currently in the process of building business pages for my social networks. I've read mixed reviews on several different sites. Some say your business pages should be connected to your personal social media, while others say you should disconnect the two.

I'm interested to know what your experiences are. Do you have business pages? Do you have them linked or totally disconnected?
I've just created a new gmail for the purpose of creating completely disconnected services. Wow, I had no idea how hard it would be to find a gmail account! After about half an hour, I finally landed one: vepbgas ... haha, Vegas interrupted.

Thoughts? Pros/cons of each way? Thanks much!

UK Photographers

Who do I know (photographers) in the United Kingdom? Two things: a friend of mine there is selling some camera gear on eBay. He takes very good care of his gear: think overkill. If it's possible to be better than new, his would be. He's listing it with no minimum, so whoever bids highest gets it. If you're interested, I can send links (once I have them) via PM. Please let me know.

Update: I have a list but no links yet. He said: "Just off the top of my head: 85mm f1.4, 70-200, 28-70, 16-35 all 2.8, 50 1.4D, 35mm f2 x2, D something body, SB 800 x3, plus other Speedlites, Zeiss f2 lenses, one a Leica fit the other a NIkon, tripods, heads, Bowens Traveller 2 head 400 set up, Bowens ProLights 750 x2, brollies, soft boxes, stands, that sort of thing." The first few items, up to where he mentions Zeiss, are Nikon.

Tech Question for Windows/Chrome Users

I use Windows 8.1 Pro. I had a new problem arise last night. I opened YouTube to play a video. No sound. In fact, ALL sound on my computer was out. I search at length for a solution and was about to abandon hope when I found this solution, ironically, on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVfG3YWkLFM

. I almost didn't open it, thinking it would be useless without sound. Alas, the creator was, first of all, smart to use pointers to walk his audience through the process without need for sound, and exactly right in the solution.

However, the problem returned anytime I restarted Chrome or opened a new tab in Chrome to play a YouTube video. The good news, it only disabled sound for YouTube after deploying this fix - not all sound, as it had before.

However, the problem returned anytime I restarted Chrome or opened a new tab in Chrome to play a YouTube video. The good news, it only disabled sound for YouTube after deploying this fix - not all sound, as it had before.

I have tried numerous other sites with videos, and this only happens with YouTube.com in Chrome. Sites that have embedded YouTube videos work fine. YouTube works in Firefox.

My question is this: is the problem with my computer, with Windows 8.1, with Windows 8.1 Pro (which is what I have), a compatibility issue with the changes in YouTube/Google - and perhaps temporary while updating? Are other people having issues? If so, which browser/Windows version are you using? Is Mac also having issues? I'm simply curious.

My plan is to simply use YouTube in Firefox to avoid further issues.___

And now for something completely different

Okay, guys, this is your chance to make me feel pain! I promise that I will do 5 squats for every +1 on this post. And while I'll have to break them up into sets of 25, I will do them all in one day, if I can (depending on the number of pluses - physical limitations apply).

Plus one to exercise vicariously through me! Better yet, share this with your own followers and take the challenge yourself. :-)___My son just dared me. He knows I can't turn down a dare.

The Bees' Knees

No wait, that was my knees! Right after falling off that merry-go-round in Caliente, I spotted a patch of blooming clover. Oh my, I hadn't seen blooming clover in ... can't remember when!!

Covered in mud already, I figure what the heck, can't hurt to get on the soggy ground to photograph them, right? Yeehaw, they're swarming with bees! My lucky day!!

I searched for a merry-go-round for nearly 3 years to do this shot. I was so excited when I saw this that I completely forgot my main reason for being there: to shoot a small town for the Nevada Magazine Great Photo Hunt. I only got one shot for that, because after this, I found other distractions.

There was a trench around the merry-go-round (roundabout for my European friends), filled with water and mud, making it a bit of a challenge to make the silly thing spin for the 10-second timer. I was laughing and having fun though. I stepped in the water more thanonce,... more »

"HOT"

Caliente is much cooler than Las Vegas at 4395' elevation, about 2000' higher than Vegas. So, why "hot" - which in Spanish is caliente? It's named for the hot springs found in nearby springs and was originally Calientes.

Ohhh, the stories!! Just a day there and back, but it was a long day ... and quite eventful!

The best-laid plans ... more to follow.

Another story about the water devastation in the Great American West from +Warren Searle. Thanks for taking the time to go exploring!


Whats in a Drought?

After having read +Pam Boling s amazing blog post about the receeding waters and water usage in the South Western states including Nevada, Arizona and California, i thought i would take a drive up today to see our lakes condition up in the mountain near us. What i found was scary.

The drought is a serious issue that requires more than what politians and their empty promises can deliver, and thats rain, lots and lots of Rain and Snow...

You can read Pams blog from this link: https://plus.google.com/+PamBoling/posts/c28FnAiMoNi

Below is a link to what the area i was standing in looked a few decades ago when there was a lake there. Now its just a big puddle in a river.

"Bathtub Rings"

I was out at Lake Mead last week (working on a project). The "bathtub rings" that show water levels are more obvious than I realized. The lake is at all-time lows, and Las Vegas will likely be on water rationing starting in January.

More to come soon...

Hey, Honeys, I'm home!! Did you miss me?

OMG, what a super-FUN wedding!!! I danced so much I'm sore today. The happy couple left early yesterday morning for Greece. They're spending tonight in Madrid. The groom's dad (my brother) is worried sick ... but hey, they're adults and both very well traveled. They'll do fine, I'm sure. If not, they'll have a story to tell when they get back.

(Note: I wasn't the "official" photographer, but they did get the gig because of me. In other words, I wasn't doing the posing on any "posed" shots I post. They were kind enough to let me back shoot.)

If you have a Windows system and can't get your Wacom tablet to work properly with the new Adobe CC, there's a good chance you might need to change the settings. Open Wacom Tablet Properties (Apps) and go to Mapping (near the bottom). Uncheck "Windows Ink" and voila! your pen should work right. That nearly drove me nuts!

I swear, if it isn't one thing, it's another.

The Desert

I've been absent a lot on G+. I've also (finally) been out shooting a LOT this week - for a big project I'm doing, mostly for me. When it's done, I'll share.

Something I've been meaning to do for a long while is share a review of +Vü Filters. Since getting my Vü graduated neutral density filters, I almost never shoot a sky without them. I love them that much!! Yes, I also have Lee GND's but rarely bothered to use them. Someday I'll do a side-by-side comparison, but I just haven't had the time yet.

This photo is SOOC except for assigning a color profile and slight crop. It's for the project I'm doing, so it's a bit odd. You'll understand when you see the project. I used the Vü 2-stop soft GND.

It's a Trick

Just kidding ... I didn't pull it out of my hat.
