Lotus Carroll1,771,689This 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.

Lotus Carroll1,771,689This is the Event for our November Self Portrait Challenge: *Cinematic*. What this means is let your images be inspired by the look and feel of moving films, cinema, movies! Basically, they'll look like stills taken from a movie - drama, mystery, and action are all great genres to focus on. Location, lighting and angles will play key roles in your imagery, as well as your post processing technique for color, cropping, and more. Here is where you enter your ONE Cinematic Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST November 30th, 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* Like most things, there are many ways to achieve this kind of look (just as there are many styles of cinema!), so find a style that suits you and work with it. This @111480916026711337375 article has some interesting information that you might enjoy: http://goo.gl/KhWR79   A good thing to remember when creating your image is that _movies tell stories_. As such, the story being told by your photo will have a huge impact on how "good" the finished product is - does your one image effectively pack the punch to tell a story? I think that the greatest cinematic images have great scene, lighting, angles, post processing (color, cropping, etc) and ALSO have been set-up such that they tell a story with impact. 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.

Lotus Carroll1,771,689Hello Austin Area Photographers! Time for us to celebrate the time of year by getting together for a photo walk at Austin's Trail of Lights. It hasn't been opened in a couple of years, so you don't want to miss it this year. Come out and join @107430862196617669986 and myself, @102476152658204495450, for this free event no matter what your skill level or gear - bring your phone, point and shoot, or DSLR. This is a Family Friendly event - bring the kids if you want! Let's meet at 7:30 by the Big Tree at Zilker Park. Meet on the outside of the circle of lights created by the tree, right by the Kettle Corn Stand. We'll start walking towards the trail at 7:50. Visit http://austintrailoflights.org for more information about The Trail of Lights, including parking details. Please be aware that traffic is heavy and parking can take up to 45 minutes (and costs $10). Give yourself plenty of time to get there! We'll shoot through the Trail, enjoying the lights and getting to connect with one another. It will likely take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. It is very crowded, so we might lose one another a little bit.  Afterwards, we'll go to Shady Grove (their Google Local page is here: https://plus.google.com/110080551668516941351/about) to have food and drinks, for those interested. *We can all post our photos right to this Event to share after the walk.* I'm looking forward to seeing all of you! :) PS: Please make sure you review http://www.austintrailoflights.org/index.php/prohibited-items/ for a list of Prohibited Items. Large backpacks are on their list, so plan accordingly. See you there!Trail of Lights Christmas Photowalk2012-12-20 19:30:0084

Jeff Smith61,390Welcome to The Selfy Sunday Project for *December 2/12* _PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR THIS SUNDAY, NOV. 25/12._ Theme: *Bond, James Bond!* I want to see Selfy's that are inspired by *007* and the James Bond films.

Either way it should be fun. _Props may come in handy here!_ ________________________________ The Halloween SSP was the scariest, most ghoulish, terrifying Selfy Sunday ever. The submissions were amazing. Well done everyone.

Kelli Seeger Kim1,299,103It's @112471890387110967375 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But @117681034834791918293 and I couldn't wait any longer!) Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.   What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.   Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.   We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-) So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058

Gailen Mapes85,334Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera C - 11 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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.2015-04-11 10:38:3880001

Gailen Mapes78,655Note: next month this circle will be split. *Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 30*Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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.2015-02-14 12:33:02215001

March Self Portrait Challenge Honorable Mentions

Here are the Honorable Mentions from the March "Multiplicity" Challenge. You can see the Event and all of the submissions http://goo.gl/mtHP9s

The photos attached to this post were considered finalist contenders but were not eligible to win prizes because either they were created by moderators (we play but we aren't eligible to win!) or these photographers have won sometime in the past 6 months. However, because these photos would go into the Finalists pool otherwise, I wanted them to get recognition, and so these are our Honorable Mentions. Well done! (Click to enlarge the photo and see who's tagged in them.)

i have this fantasy
that plants can hear
the secrets of my heart,
and so, when i feel a bit sad
i stand near them
and wait for them to whisper
that everything is ok.

in my heart, there lives 
a fairytale princess
whose only prince charming
is the warm sun on her skin
and who prefers green grass
under her toes and
a gentle breeze blowing
through her curls
to the restriction of glass slippers.

you will arrive at discoveries
which are not at all uncommon
(in the grand scheme of things)
but are, nonetheless, treasures
to your unique and seeking heart, 
in that very moment.

This 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.

(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.

If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything. 

Thanks to +Shantha Marie Fountain, one of the talented moderators of The Art of Self Portraiture, for the image used in this Event's header.

February Self Portrait Challenge Honorable Mentions

Here are the Honorable Mentions from the "Love Is…" February Challenge. You can see the Event and all of the submissions here: http://goo.gl/bZPvaB

The photos attached to this post were considered finalist contenders but were not eligible to win prizes because either they were created by moderators (we play but we aren't eligible to win!) or these photographers have won sometime in the past 6 months. However, because these photos would go into the Finalists pool otherwise, I wanted them to get recognition, and so these are our Honorable Mentions. Well done!

A recent favorite sunset capture, with a relevant musing from my January 2015 recap:

"I thought of so many things I’ve said goodbye to over the years. There is beauty in that, saying goodbye. Some people will tell you that every ending is the beginning of something new. I think that’s a lovely thought, but it’s not always true. I think that maybe it’s okay to consider the ending of something beautiful, even if there is no new beginning. There’s a perspective there that means something to me."

The Family That TinTypes Together….

I used the +Hipstamatic  Tintype app to capture the images and adjusted settings on each one of them within the app. Then I imported them to my computer and made a few adjustments in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom that I couldn't make within the app, but wanted on the images. Finally, I used StarTych, a very basic diptych/triptych maker, to put them all together into one image.

while your heart is still beating
and the sun is still shining so hard,

and breathe out all the spent chances you took.
