Lotus Carroll1,777,865This is the Event for our July Self Portrait Challenge: Elemental. What this means is your self portrait should incorporate one or more of the elements in an obvious way - let's see how you commingle with Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire! Here is where you enter your ONE "Elemental" Self Portrait. Your photo 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* Here's a gallery I created with some really wonderful examples of this kind of self portraiture - hopefully they will inspire you! Elemental Self Portraiture on Flickr: https://goo.gl/g1IOrp 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!

I've been encouraged to print my photos, and after having done so I can see why "It's not a photo until you've printed it" can be so true.

This is especially true of larger prints.

Here's +Thomas Hawk musing over some printing ideas. I share this so I can "bookmark" it for myself and glean some good ideas later :)

Heads up: Part 1 of 3 about the Fuji line-up by Zack Arias.

This one's about the cameras.
Part Two's about the lenses.
Part Three's Fuji X versus DSLR's.

Best quote: "It's not an X100." — re: getting an X10/20/30. "It's like getting a Porsche Boxster; it says you couldn't afford the 911."

RIP Robin Williams

Here he is in form talking about Alcoholism.

The sad thing is he was truly battling substance addiction and the depression which was only made worse. This video shows a lot of laughter, but after today's tragic news I can only watch this with the sad sense of how much more difficult it really was for Robin.

Perhaps this isn't too new, but since last year...

I have fully moved into a Fuji X camera from my μ4/3 system (Olympus). I moved into only one camera: an X100S

This means I've been shooting entirely with a 35mm equivalent focal length. Why would I do that? Well, I wanted to gain a better quality sensor and image (and wow! is the X-Trans system great!), and I wanted to force myself to improve with a 35mm...no zoom.

I'll write more about this experience, but let me know if you are trying to do something similar...with any camera :)

Cheers :)

Heads up Japan-based shooters :)

Cool Japan! Tag your Japan photos with  #100Tokyo #cooljapan  

Check out the new site http://www.google.com/campaigns/cooljapan/

I'll be giving a little speech at the big "Cool Japan" event and party in the Google Tokyo Offices for the announcement.  It will be great fun! I just took this photo one a full-on week of photography here in Japan with +Brian Matiash !  This place is so cool... we made a little video too I will try to release soon.

And thanks again everyone for being interested in the Assistant thing!  I made a choice of a gentleman named Matthias — we'll get some photos and stuff of everything that happens.  And again, thank you so much everyone for the comments and for applying !  I feel bad that I can choose only one... :(  But, again, a very sincere thanks!___Heads up Japan-based shooters :)

Here are my thoughts on the Fujifilm X100S's controls.

I've been with this camera for several months but the learning curve was easy.

Anyone else have any tips or thoughts? I will be doing a follow-up post later.

*Vulnerable homeless (Without context)

...subject to removal when considering those are real aspects of people and places in a public domain?

I think defining terms like "vulnerable" or answering such questions challenges us to examine what our notions or limitations are with respect to an art from that might otherwise belie such notions.

Thank you for your consideration :)___
