Lotus Carroll1,770,009This 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 & TipsNeed some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing +Mark Rodriguez 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/vzcRHLRemember 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:SnapseedVSCOcamRetouch (cloning tool!)Camera+Camera!PhotoStudioPixlr ExpressAviaryInsPhotoPrizes1 Year of +September Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo2013-09-01 07:00:00179

Christopher Lira0*The Dates are the Art submission time frame for this event. I will be updating the start date everyday till we reach the ending date for submissions which will be oct. 1st* _9/27/12 edit:_ *The deadline is getting closer!! remember to email your submissions to both kaosq3k@gmail.com and manda.r.lira@gmail.com oct 1st is a few days away :)* Hi everyone many people have been asking me what this book is all about. Well this book is about Hope, it's about Love and It's about Strength, it's about saying "Life is beautiful, Cancer can suck it!"  8 months ago the love of my life Gladis was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer. When we broke the news to our kids @112903919681703164454 decided to create this art book "Art For The Heart" and asked artists on deviantart and the artists here on Google+ if they would help her by submitting pieces for this book so she can give it to her mom as a gift of Hope Strength Courage and Love. So between school, cross country and everything else in a teenage girls life she began working on this book collecting submissions, arranging the pages, adding memorable quotes from her mom, inspirational quotes and memories of things she loves about her mom.  This past week Wednesday Sept 12th after all the treatments (Hysterectomy, Lymph nodes removal, Chemo, external and internal radiation) Gladis's latest scan results came back. The results weren't what we had prayed for. This horrible disease has now spread to her lungs and possibly to her brain. My Gladis now has stage 4 cancer. This link here is Gladis's journey on whatnext.com http://www.whatnext.com/users/lirasgirl33  So getting back to Manda's art book Art For The Heart While Manda was editing this book this past week she came to me and told me she ran out of pages for the price range she was working in. So I told her just bump it up to the next price range which in turn opened up the book for 20 more pages till it bumps up in price again. This is when Manda and I came to you all here on Google+ again.  Here's the link to that original post https://plus.google.com/104857406109954440836/posts/bR1p4edhtdr after posting this @109602109099036550366 suggested I post this as an event so I took his wonderful advice and now here were are.  Since the original post I have 7 submissions already in my email! Thank you all that have already submitted!! Hopefully we get all 20 pages filled! and if by some chance we go over the 20 pages I will buy more pages or rearrange to book somehow to make everyone get their page. All art is beautiful. all will be accepted. The goal of this book is to bring a smile to Gladis's face and give her Hope and strength throughout this horrible journey she is on.  deadline for submissions is oct.1st. all submission can be emailed to kaosq3k@gmail.com or manda.r.lira@gmail.com You may also post them here in this event page as well. I think I covered everything if you still have any questions or any ideas suggestions I am open to anything and everytArt For The Heart2012-10-01 09:00:0044

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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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.2015-01-23 11:47:34172000

Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #2: Photography OneThis is the first part of my "big" hand-picked photographer circles. Everybody from the Essentials circle is also in here, plus everyone I noticed in other circles, who plussed or commented on my posts or who I learned to know through other people. If you're not in there, either I haven't noticed you yet or you don't fulfil my one requirement: you have to post your own work. There are only original photography content creators in here!2014-12-30 16:41:23500000
Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #1: Photography EssentialsLike at the end of last year, I want to say thanks to all the amazing people here on Google+ by sharing a few of my circles, which is easier said than done because my own circle collection is pretty chaotic. This first one is my "small" Photography circle of people I mainly found in the beginning over two years ago, although the size of this circle has doubled in the last twelve months. These are people whose posts I don't want to miss even when I don't have time to look at all the other circles. Don't be disappointed if you're not in there - there are two much bigger photo circles coming up next!2014-12-30 16:36:31269000

I had a beautiful monochrome tulip print in my house the past few weeks by my fellow Floral Friday curator +Eustace James that was just passing through on its way to a charity event, and was inspired to reprocess a tulip photo from last Winter in a similar manner.  Thanks for the inspiration Eustace! #FloralFriday  +FloralFriday curated also by +Tamara Pruessner +Kiki Nelson and myself +Beth Akerman

#LeavesOnThursday  with +Mehdia Ridder +Leaves On Thursday  two Japanese Maple leaves from the tree on my patio on the frosted glass table photographed in November, but not processed until last week.  -6 degrees F at the moment here in Central Ohio with the wind chill making it even colder, however, it does help make it feel slightly less colder at least if you are inside since the sun is shining. So just trying to keep warm here today.  Nice cup of Starbucks coffee helps too!

#LeavesOnThursday   +Leaves On Thursday with +Mehdia Ridder A Bradford Pear leaf on the frosted glass table that reminded me of a ray or skate that Rob catches frequently when we go fishing at the ocean.  So I gave it a bluish background to make it look more like it was in water. #leafportraits

#abstractsinnature  Been having some fun with some tulips in a pot that I bought at Trader Joe's last week.  They are almost all done for, but I will save the bulbs and plant them outside at some point to enjoy again next year.

I didn't process this until after Tulip Saturday, but wanted to go ahead and post it starting first with the color version (monochrome will follow later), plus I have a number of other tulip photos to process this week when I get the time.  Wanted some color on a snowy Central Ohio morning.

Some recent jewelry pieces (these are just some quick iPhone photos).  I haven't updated the jewelry site for awhile and hope to in February as several other pieces are in a charity silent auction.  If any of these pieces interest you, and you are in the USA, please drop me a comment or private message.  The long one with the flower shape beads and leaf clasp will not be going onto the jewelry site as I am not sure what type of stones the flower shaped beads are, but is available to my G+ friends.  I hope to get a bright warm sunny day here soon where I get some newer pieces photographed and re-photograph some older ones for the website (which is www.miribethbeads.com if you are interested in checking it out).

Yesterday I challenged +Eustace James to a #fivedaytulipchallenge   that will culminate with the re-kickoff of #tulipsaturday  that he curates with +Measie Elizabeth and +Marilyn Benham .  So I am sure that Eustace is up to the challenge.  I haven't participated in any of the recent challenges as there has been nothing really to shoot and the weather has been so yucky in Central Ohio, but with the grocery stores stocking up on some beautiful cut flowers recently including tulips, this will be a fun one to try.

Since +Lena Levin posted a photo of her +Terrill Welch original painting in its setting at her home, I thought I would post my Terrill original along with one of my many originals by Lena and my +Mikko Tyllinen and one of my two +Enzie Shahmiri originals that grace my mantel over the fireplace. The photo above is an older photo print of mine. One of the great things of G+ has been meeting these fantastic artists in addition to my photography friends and collecting both original art and photographic prints of my friends (I have a wall of photo prints along the stairs) and I also own an original painting by +Roberta Murray that is just around the corner from these originals. However, the piece that means the most to me is a print of a white rose by a dearly departed friend, +Lee Daniels who is sorely missed here on G+. Do you have a G+ art and/or photography collection? If so, would love to see them. ... more »

I bought a bunch of tulips yesterday and shot a few photos of them. This is the only processed so far.

Since it is so cold here in Central Ohio, I thought I would share a recently processed photo from a very warm late-Summer evening in Chicago, IL.

I had a beautiful monochrome tulip print in my house the past few weeks by my fellow Floral Friday curator +Eustace James that was just passing through on its way to a charity event, and was inspired to reprocess a tulip photo from last Winter in a similar manner.  Thanks for the inspiration Eustace! #FloralFriday  +FloralFriday curated also by +Tamara Pruessner +Kiki Nelson and myself +Beth Akerman

#LeavesOnThursday  with +Mehdia Ridder +Leaves On Thursday  two Japanese Maple leaves from the tree on my patio on the frosted glass table photographed in November, but not processed until last week.  -6 degrees F at the moment here in Central Ohio with the wind chill making it even colder, however, it does help make it feel slightly less colder at least if you are inside since the sun is shining. So just trying to keep warm here today.  Nice cup of Starbucks coffee helps too!

Big dog, little bed. Trying to keep warm tonight. Little dogs all tucked into their other beds for the night.

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to yourstre... more »

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.

Same photo of the Wrigley Building with the Trump Tower hovering over it in Chicago.  From my Labor Day Weekend 2014 trip,  The first one is cropped to eliminate a building shadow on the Wrigley Building, but also to make the Trump Tower loom larger, and make the angle I shot it at a bit different.
