We want to promote the learning and sharing of self portraiture as an art form - our tagline is "Go Beyond the Selfie" - so let's go all-in on making great, high quality art!

Jeff Smith62,383Welcome to The Selfie Sunday Project for April 5, 2015 We are back! First thing you may notice is "Selfy" has become "Selfie", just a change to keep up with the more recognized spelling of selfie. A general theme for this week is *New Beginnings* , it's Spring and Selfie Sunday has returned so it seems to fit. If you can't stick to the theme no worries either, since we are freshly back and running any selfie you take is fine.  Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Selfie Sunday. http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8 Your photo can be taken from Mar. 30/15 before the event up until 8:00 AM EDT Monday Apr. 6/15. Older photos posted will be removed from the event. Please only post one photo to the event and that photo should ideally be taken the weekend or the week prior to the event.

Lotus Carroll1,775,106This 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.

lane langmade17,784Dear +Style It Shoot it Challengers. You are cordially invited to attend our annual End -of - Year party this Friday January 17th  (and Saturday 2014).  If you ever – even if only once – participated in one of the Challenges last year then we invite you to joins us as we look back at our wonderful year full of creativity, hard work, styling, artistic challenges as well as achievements and of course our inspiration and wonderful masterpieces that were produced out of these challenges.  This party and gallery exhibit is to celebrate YOU and thank you -- the dear and wonderful #StyleIt   community members and challengers! Some have been involved since the VERY beginning challenge. Others we picked up later on through the year… but all of you stuck it out and didn’t quit. Many of you stayed and continued through various admin changes and hiccups. And without YOU we could have never built this community. Without you, we could never have run these challenges! Without all of you -- who helped, played, supported and cheered each other on -- we might not have our masterpieces we created.  In 2013 we had 10 challenges for 10 shots:  • Jan -- The Apocalypse & Create your Own Background • Feb --  Fantasy & Natural Light • Mar – Spring Thing & Portraits • April – What’s Black & White and __  All Over &  Costuming • May – Water Water Everywhere & Reflective Photography • June – Super Heroes Vs. Villains & Special Effects • Sept – Lighting our Lit & Artificial Lighting • Oct – Haunted & Low Key and Long E • Nov – Eat Me! & Make your Own Recipe • Dec – Winter Dreams & Shallow DOF We all struggled at times and felt defeated, and at other times we saw ourselves produce some of the best work we ever have and felt like we had conquered the world! Most importantly we GREW. We grew creatively as well as technically with every step we took, and we each made some valuable connections and friends in the process! Many of us picked up a new skill or learned a new aspect of their camera they never would have without playing these challenges. We are better photographers for it!  So join us and help celebrate our year by posting to this event album 1-3 of your BEST SHOTS or challenge masterpieces from throughout the year (2013)!  ( I know it will be HARD to choose. Also why not share out your 2013 Style It Album to your own stream in conjunction) We know you have em. Each and every one of you invited today, produced at least one work of art that you should be so proud of. Please share it with us and help us take a look back! Let’s see our milestones and our achievements lets celebrate photography, ART.. and gather inspiration to produce our future Style It masterpieces of tomorrow in 2014! One can only wonder what fantastic fun the moderators have in store for this year! ;) Here’s to an awesome 2013 and to a wonderful 2014 coming up!  Thank you, Lane & Kim #Style It ModsThe Best of STYLE IT 2013 End - of - the - Year Celebration2014-01-17 18:00:0051

Like always everyone is looking forward to some great Selfies. We have 17 moderators who can help you along the way. ___________________________ UPLOADING The event will be open for uploading photos at 9:00 PM on the Saturday before.

Scott Jarvie440,537*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00142

We found this unusual shaped oak on a walk and learned that there is a special kind of oak trees:

'Fastigiata' or upright English oak is an upright, columnar, deciduous tree which eventually matures into a dense elongated oval shape with a short trunk and makes a striking landscape specimen. Growing moderately-fast to 50 to 60 feet high and only 10 to 18 feet wide, upright English oak was first discovered growing wild in a forest in Germany and was propagated by grafting in 1783.

Not possible to see the "about page" of the site...
Not possible to copy the curators...
Not possible to add photo to album...
Not possible to search your albums to add photo to post...
No autocomplete for hashtags...

Only 100 spots left - hurry!

THIS IS THE OFFICIAL 2015 "17" ROUND SIGN UP
for the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!

Don't know what that is?
It's an amazing game that has turned into so much more.
If you love photography, and you have a camera,
COME JOIN US!!

Simply type "I'M IN" in the comments below and the first 500 people to sign up will be entered.

After sign ups I will be giving you an item list -
10 simple things to take pictures of.
It's up to you to make your picture stand out!!
It's so much fun!!
I give you a few weeks to get the shots done.

You do NOT need to be a professional shooter. 
You do NOT need a fancy camera.
You do NOT need to feel any hesitation on your skill level,
as this group of Scavengers is one of the most supportive groups of people around.
This is just FOR FUN.
It's me getting you to use your camera in ways you might not do otherwise,
It's to push yourself to try new things,
learn new techniques,
join a group of like-minded people who will encourage you
and teach you sooo much!
Basically I'm giving you a fun excuse to take pictures you wouldn't have otherwise - for example, once I got to pour yellow paint over my boyfriend's head!! 

During the course of the month, you will make friends,
You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of the best community on G+.
You WILL be welcomed and surrounded by wonderful people
who WANT you to watch you succeed and surprise yourself!!

SO, if that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of...
All you have to do is type two simple little words, "*I'M IN*"
And you will be registered.

IF YOU ARE SIGNING UP SOMEONE AS A PROXY (if someone has asked you to sign them up) do so on different comments.
And I NEED there to be a G+ account linked to that name.

I will only enter ONE PERSON per comment, if there are more than one on a single comment, only the first person will be entered. 
(This is the only way I can keep track of the 500 spots.)

PLEASE DO NOT comment on this post unless it is to sign up.
Any stray comments will be deleted.

PLEASE DO NOT sign up unless you actually want to participate,
not just because you see everyone else doing it.

I can't wait to play with you!!!!

And with that - (like any of you even read this) - let the registration BEGIN!! bounces around room

The example below was from our "colourful" album.

Last album and NEW sign in!

IT'S THE FINAL DAY OF OUR 2015 - SWEET 16 ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!! 
____________________________________________________________
SIGN UPS FOR THE 17th ROUND OF THE SCAVENGER HUNT 
WILL BE HELD AT 12 NOON (Mountain time zone)
ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13TH
____________________________________________________________

What is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, to push your limits, to experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year
for anyone of any level of photography to participate.

I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers - this round by   +Robin Griggs Wood, +Sandra Parlow  and our winner from last round, +Mark Rodriguez   

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 

There are 10 categories:
This is the TENTH - the "STRIPES" album. Please see previous days for the "Violet", "Electric", "Brick", "Fish", "Bunny", "Angry", "Urban Legend", "Juicy" and "plumber" albums.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement, friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the round. 

This is a negative-free zone -
I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 

Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*STRIPES*" album,
1 item seen in 273 different ways.
