Lotus Carroll1,771,239This 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 & InspirationLike 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 +Fstoppers 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. The header for this Event was created by +Jason Mayers. 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. Prizes*1 Year +SmugMug Portfolio Account http://www.smugmug.com/features*$150 Gift Certificate for +November Self Portrait Challenge: Cinematic2014-11-23 07:00:0088

Lotus Carroll1,771,239This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo.

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 07:00:00180

Kelli Seeger Kim1,304,948It's +Karen Hutton 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But +Kerry Murphy 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 Mapes71,322Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 31Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-14 11:21:38202002

Gailen Mapes67,830Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 31Note: 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-09-14 10:21:35204029

This 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 +Fstoppers 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. The header for this Event was created by +Jason Mayers. 

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.

"Using the moustache as a catalyst, the idea is to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health and take action when needed. As a global men’s health movement, the Movember Foundation has the ambition to contribute to improving the lives of men around the world. To achieve this, we challenge men to grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems."

October Self Portrait Challenge Honorable Mentions

Here are the Honorable Mentions from the "Your Greatest Fear" October Challenge. You can see the Event and all of the submissions here: http://goo.gl/DkTNI2

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.)

Happy Halloween Week!

I think this is hilarious. I threw my #SelfySunday  Halloween image from this past weekend into the #Halloweenify  mill and it did this.

Can't say I love it more than the original, but it sure did make me laugh, and it's worth a try with any photo you pick. Just go to your photos tab and follow the instructions you'll find at the top. Enjoy! :)

Yes, Again.

So, anyway… it seems pleasant enough so far. Apparently there's some revenue earning/sharing incentives. Intriguing. It does look quite nice and it's fairly well developed already, though there is always room for improvement.

You have to use someone's link or shortcode to sign up. The link I posted above will work if you want to get in through my back door. Er, that sounds bad. You know, if you want to sign up. nervous laughter At the very least, you can grab your user name so that nobody else does.

And Then He Was 8

"The days are long, but the years are short." 
~Gretchen Rubin

Braden celebrated his 8th birthday this past Thursday. It was a day full of Angry Birds cupcakes, Minecraft, trampolines, balloons, and Tex-Mex. Pretty awesome, all around, just like him. And now, to make sure I get as much out of this "short" year as I can, I'm off. I think we're going bike-riding today. :-)

The October Challenge is "Nightmares". The image attached to this post is one I captured a couple of years ago. The effect was achieved fairly easily - I used black eyeshadow around my eyes and gave the camera a ghoulish "I dream of your death" kind of look. The rest was achieved in Lightroom - dark vignetting to get rid of the background and encroach on my face, slightly sepia toned desaturation, deepening of shadows, some brushwork in the eye, some cloning to clean up unwanted areas… and a lot of grit. Processing made all the difference here - in fact, this is the same image processed differently: http://goo.gl/ITWc6i

Submit your Nightmarish photos from a Drink and Click™ Photowalk and win great prizes! See Details Here: http://goo.gl/mMSlNE Thanks to our great prize sponsors for October: +Adoramapix, Professor Kobré’s Lightscoop http://goo.gl/CjNQAN, and +Think Tank Photo

+Drink and Click™ is simple: We meet at a venue to have a drink (alcohol consumption not required), talk about Photography, laugh and have fun together. Then we move to another venue, take pictures in between… and repeat until the night is over! We have photography challenges every month with prizes ranging from camera gear to local area business gift cards. Join us!

This is the Event for our October Self Portrait Challenge: Your Greatest Fear. We figured we'd go beyond just a general "Halloween" theme, but still keep the "fright factor" alive. So show us something that absolutely terrifies you!

Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "Greatest Fear" theme. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST October 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.

I bang my head against the walls of my heart, where I am trapped indefinitely, not wanting to stay and not wanting to leave, both longing for and dreading the day when the monotonous, tortured beating will stop.
