Lotus Carroll1,777,724This 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.

if you look close those brown spots on that huge rock formation are seals.. there was so many of them.. wouldn't have even seen them if it were not for their barking.. how they get up so high is mind boggling..
what a delight to have seen though..

wishing you all a wonderful and beautiful day today.. and a gorgeous Thanksgiving.. 67 years ago today I showed up on Thanksgiving day.. ruined my poor moms dinner party.. I am afraid..my excuse has always been and always will be that the turkey smelled so good I had to come and join the festivities right then and there..after all these years I am thankful that I did.. life has its ups and downs.. its twists and turns.. but its a wonderful ride.. if you allow yourself to always try and be better than the day before in all things..a learning process for sure.. may all of your birthdays and the days in between be blessed.. ~Hope

IF you don't know +Ricardo Williams  or aren't following him then your really missing out.. Ricardo is one of the nicest persons on G+ or FB for that matter.. and he is now starting up a class on Self Portraiture.. which is really going to rock your world and open up a whole new definition in your out look on photography.. and selfies..
I can tell you through personal experience that the way he looks at the world and the way he opens ones mind.. is a treat and wonderful experience.. don't miss out on this.. BEST OF LUCK Ricardo..

Want to learn more about Self Portraiture - #DarkChocolate  Style

I was once told: "You are a very good model, you have a great collection of work." When I answered that person saying: "I am not a model, I am a photographer" they looked really confused. "Self Portraiture"- I said.... still didn't ring a bell.

Maybe I am both, or maybe I am still just a photographer.....  If you want to know more about the creative process that goes behind my self portraiture then this is your chance...and  if you register before midnight Tuesday (yes, tomorrow) you'll receive $50 off your registration!!  

Check this out!!

Here is where you register: (Again, if you do it before midnight tomorrow you get $50.00 off)

Somewhere in the distance
There's a place for me to go
I don't want you to hate me
But I think you need to know
You're weighing on my shoulders
And I'm sick of feeling down
So I guess it's time for me to say goodbye

 one of the grandkids last summer came running into the house so excited yelling at me to come out side for he found something that the cat was playing with.. we scooped it up in a bowel and brought it in the house.. fearful that the cat had done some damage.. but the little creature survived.. and the boys had fun watching it.. after wards we put it on a bush outside and scowled at the cat.. they loved its red dots..
can't wait to see these once again.. and flowers.. lots and lots of flowers..

p.s. comments are disabled for now.. so I thank you all in advance for the likes.. soft hugs have a wonderful day.. and keep warm by remembering how the summer sun feels.. it will come.. it will .. promise..at some point anyway..  :-)

just so you all know that I am not being mean spirited or don't want to hear what most of you have to say on my photos.. but because of late I have had to remove some comments.. to many really.. I have now disabled all comments on all posts.. and it will have to stay that way  until some very rude people get tired and go elsewhere..
hope you understand..

come on people lets help Michael out..
I have seen your generosity many  many times..
I have seen people help out with over 6,000 for help with a Vegas trip expense..  I have seen people help out with over a 1,000 dollars for a new computer.. this man needs our help.. its his life we are taking about.. and medical expense.. He has no job.. no insurance.. and the medical expense is just adding up and up...
so how about opening up your hearts and help this man.
even 5 dollars would help.. and we all can afford at least that..

Thank you so much to everyone that was able to help and for your thoughts and prayers and with that said I'm going to ask all 16,704 of you that follow me to reshare this post once for me .... I don't like or want to ask for help but you are my people you are my voice... every little bit helps .... and at the moment I need any and all of the help I can get ...

He came upon her path one day,
a weary traveler looking for a warmhearted berth
Her whispers came like a warm gentle breeze,
Softly kissing his soul

The melody of his being saturated
this untouched and pristine shore
releasing a fragrance
Invigorating their souls.

In the vastness of time and closeness they remain
Two souls unremittingly intertwined
Inhaling their essence enveloped within
a warm gentle breeze . . .

Think your seeing a double post only with this one upside down.. well then I would guess your right.. +Marilyn Benham mentioned on  the  other photo..
that if it was turned upside down.. it would like a frozen forest.. so I tried it.. and she is right.. looks better this way as well..
 so today I have learned a very valuable lesson..
moral of this story ?
its ok to turn things up side down from time to time.. makes life interesting..
try it..you just may like it..  sly grins Just don't get yourself into trouble..

always wanted to do a selfy ? but didn't want to show your face ?
well now is your chance.. one two three.. what are you waiting for ?
JUMP in.. does not hurt.. promise.

 
This is the Event for our January Self Portrait Challenge: Faceless. What this means is create a self portrait where your face is not the focal point, or even present... use other parts of your body to make a statement this time.

Here is where you enter your ONE Faceless Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST January 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

Your creativity will play a huge part in getting this image right - as will composition. 

Thanks to Community moderator +Jason Mayers for recommending this month's theme - he offered this article as a good read in connection with it: http://www.lightstalking.com/faceless-portrait

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.
