Lotus Carroll1,774,267This 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.

Art through the Apeture Photography11,105There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.  Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please! Thank you @118149685580234696847  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.2nd Annual "You Are Beautiful"2015-02-22 04:00:00300

The Weather Channel2,970,852*Upload your photos to this Event on 9/19 or using the #sunsetday hashtag in a public post to celebrate #sunsetday!* Join us for an exciting 24-hour event as we send summer into the sunset in global fashion. We are asking our Google+ audience from around the world to grab your favorite camera on the evening of September 19 and snap your own unique sunset from your corner of the globe. We want to see all types of sunsets in a variety of settings; a city skyline, a beach resort, a beautiful countryside, a desert landscape, a dense forest. *Wherever you may be, please share/upload your sunset image with this event page on September 19.* You can also participate outside of this event page by submitting a public photo post and tagging with #sunsetday. A select number of our favorite photos will be shown on The Weather Channel and accompany a slideshow on weather.com. Other favorites will be posted and rotated through as the cover photo on both +The Weather Channel and the +Google+ Photos  Google+ page. Note: *Only photos uploaded and posted to the event page or associated with the hashtag #sunsetday on Sep 19 will be considered* We hosted two Hangouts On Air in preparation for Sunset Day. The first hangout focused on the meteorology behind sunsets including the reason behind the beautiful array of colors.  The second hangout concentrated on the art of sunset photography. Expert photographers well known to the Google+ community talked about their techniques in capturing the perfect sunset. Links to both HOA videos are posted below. *HANGOUT SCHEDULE* 1. Monday, September 9: "The Meteorology Behind Sunsets" at 11 am ET with host +Timothy Ballisty  (The Weather Channel social meteorologist). *Guests will include:* Meteorologists +Mike Bettes +Brad Panovich +Jacob Wycoff +Jonathan Erdman +Morgan Palmer +Tim Brice and +Maria LaRosa  *HOA video* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qz6Zyz5FT-A 2.

First Time for Everything

I’ve never done a shameless self-promotion here … and I think I’ve only linked my SmugMug page once or twice here, if that.

Now … I’m actually going to ask a favor. I know most of you are photographers and have absolutely no need for prints from me. I get that. Maybe someone in your circles who doesn’t know me would like something. Please share!

Through the end of June, I have discounts:
Code GPrint20 = 20% off any purchase
Code GPrint30 = 30% off any purchase over $250

I would really like (need!) to upgrade my Adobe software to CS6. I don’t know how long they will keep selling it.

Thank you … thank you … thank you!!!

Bliss Dance

This statue, "Bliss Dance," will be taken down today. I happened to catch a photo while the lights were changing colors. I had planned to save this for the holidays and title it "Christmas Bliss" but I decided to share today to pay tribute.

She was a beauty and a joy to photograph!

Freedom

We exercised our freedom last night - took our very own fireworks into the desert, along with about 100 other people. This was one of my favs from the evening, a 60g shell.

"Bathtub Rings"

I was out at Lake Mead last week (working on a project). The "bathtub rings" that show water levels are more obvious than I realized. The lake is at all-time lows, and Las Vegas will likely be on water rationing starting in January.

More to come soon...

Hey, Honeys, I'm home!! Did you miss me?

OMG, what a super-FUN wedding!!! I danced so much I'm sore today. The happy couple left early yesterday morning for Greece. They're spending tonight in Madrid. The groom's dad (my brother) is worried sick ... but hey, they're adults and both very well traveled. They'll do fine, I'm sure. If not, they'll have a story to tell when they get back.

(Note: I wasn't the "official" photographer, but they did get the gig because of me. In other words, I wasn't doing the posing on any "posed" shots I post. They were kind enough to let me back shoot.)

If you have a Windows system and can't get your Wacom tablet to work properly with the new Adobe CC, there's a good chance you might need to change the settings. Open Wacom Tablet Properties (Apps) and go to Mapping (near the bottom). Uncheck "Windows Ink" and voila! your pen should work right. That nearly drove me nuts!

SCREAM!!!!!!!!

Adobe CC is not compatible with my Wacom Intuos4.......................

I swear, if it isn't one thing, it's another.

So, I have to buy another Wacom now.... or live without.

The Desert

I've been absent a lot on G+. I've also (finally) been out shooting a LOT this week - for a big project I'm doing, mostly for me. When it's done, I'll share.

Something I've been meaning to do for a long while is share a review of +Vü Filters. Since getting my Vü graduated neutral density filters, I almost never shoot a sky without them. I love them that much!! Yes, I also have Lee GND's but rarely bothered to use them. Someday I'll do a side-by-side comparison, but I just haven't had the time yet.

This photo is SOOC except for assigning a color profile and slight crop. It's for the project I'm doing, so it's a bit odd. You'll understand when you see the project. I used the Vü 2-stop soft GND.

More Haze Removal

These photos are from the Salton Sea, 2012. I brought these out again when I heard Adobe had added haze removal to LR CC because I wanted to see how well it compares to DxO.

Haze Removal

Okay, here are two different methods of haze removal. One is the new LR tool. I tried to keep everything else as close to the same as I possibly could - highlights, shadows, etc. Color management is slightly different. I might be using a different color profile. I thought I had both set to Adobe Pro, but I could be mistaken.

I'm In Love...

Completely SOOC ... my marble rolling pin (could do some damage with this thing... haha!!) ... shot with my new 50mm prime. I needed a new portrait lens, debated forever and ever, 50mm or 85mm. I knew there was a possibility that I could be shooting in hotel rooms now and again, so I opted for 50mm. Next question: Canon (expensive) or Sigma. If I got Sigma, I really, really wanted the 50mm Art lens. I researched a lot ... and ended up with a Zeiss. OMG, did I ever make the right choice!!! For considerably less money even. It arrived about half an hour ago.

Alert

h/t +Carsten Schlipf for the share
If you want to move a photo from one album to another, be sure to click "Back to Google+ Photos" and DON'T use the new Google Photos to move. If you use G Photos to move a photo, the post where you originally shared the photo will disappear.

SERIOUS FLAW in Google's new Photos Functionality !!!
Please read on, if you happen to share photos on Google+, because a basic operation can lead to big trouble. What is big trouble? In this case: The whole post will be gone without a warning! How to prevent this? Here come the details...

As you might know you can upload a picture for a new post and add it to an album right away. Fine so far. Everything works as expected - so far.
Now let's assume you intend to move the picture to a different album. Before the launch of the new Photos release this was not possible. You had the opportunity to add it to another album, which resulted in a duplication of the picture. Now you can do that, but with undesired consequences.
Here's the workflow you should avoid at all cost:
1) go to "Photos" / "Collections" (left vertical icon panel) / "Albums" (drop down of the title "Collections")
2) select the album the picture is in, click the picture to select it (click the little checkbox in the corner). Now go to the top and click the "+" button to add it to another album. So far so good. Now it lives in two places. But the initial post will direct your visitors to the original album only. Is it a duplicate picture at this point in time? Doesn't look like, but how can we be sure? Anyway. In order to move the picture, we need to proceed with the next step:
3) remove the picture from the initial album. Instead of clicking the "+" icon, now click the "..." icon to open the "other actions", which only contains "Remove from album".
The result: the picture is gone from this album - and so is the entire post it was shared with along with all +1 and comments!

Have I mentioned you should avoid doing this by all means? :-(

This is a serious flaw in Google's new Photo functionality and I really hope the developers at Google will take care of this. There is no warning like "the post this picture had been attached to will be removed". No hint at all! +Yonatan Zunger et al, can you please let us know, what's going on here? It cannot stay like this or else many users will experience the same issue and losing posts is no fun at all!

There seems to be one workaround for moving pictures between albums without losing related posts and without even losing the association between the image and the post: use Picasa's web UI.
Go to https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos?noredirect=1, find your photo and click on "Actions" / "Move to another album".
This is the only way you should move your pictures, if they had been shared with a post before.

Please share this post with everybody else on Google+ you know. I just lost a post with quite some feedback and activity this way. I would be happy, if this warning helps others to not get caught in the same trap...

If you'd like to see some of the photography posts that are still there in my collection, feel free to visit https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/8GLaX

Thanx for reading and take care...___Alert

ATTN: Portrait and Wedding Photographers

I'm making a circle of portrait and wedding photographers. I have some news that you might be interested in hearing. If you shoot weddings or portraits ... or even if you'd like to shoot weddings or portraits ... please comment with the following info:

1. if you're pro or want to become pro
2. if you're interested in learning "tricks of the trade"
3. if you have a studio
4. Do you have a Facebook account? (yeah, yeah)
5. if you know others who haven't commented, please + mention them

I'll send out info probably Thursday of this week. When I do, that's probably the last you'll hear about it. At that point, you can either choose to act on it or not. I have absolutely nothing to gain from it whatsoever. It's just something I learned about this morning and... more »

I have absolutely nothing to gain from it whatsoever. It's just something I learned about this morning and would like to share in case anyone is interested. I don't want to broadcast widely because it doesn't concern landscape photographers at all ... and it's "limited" (relatively small group). The person in charge asked us to share to ensure he fills all the spots. I don't want to overfill. :)

Thanks bunches!! I promise you will love it!!!___

First Time for Everything

I’ve never done a shameless self-promotion here … and I think I’ve only linked my SmugMug page once or twice here, if that.

Now … I’m actually going to ask a favor. I know most of you are photographers and have absolutely no need for prints from me. I get that. Maybe someone in your circles who doesn’t know me would like something. Please share!

Through the end of June, I have discounts:
Code GPrint20 = 20% off any purchase
Code GPrint30 = 30% off any purchase over $250

I would really like (need!) to upgrade my Adobe software to CS6. I don’t know how long they will keep selling it.

Thank you … thank you … thank you!!!

+Zero Dean​ is one of the best contributors to G+ imo!

You don't have to be selfless to make this happen, but "looking out for #1" as a primary tenet in one's life is a surefire way to destroy relationships!

Relationships & teamwork

From acquaintances to best friends to married couples, all great friendships involve teamwork.

Teamwork sits alongside trust, communication, and tolerance as a building block of the best relationships.

Teamwork is not “What can I get out of this relationship?”, it’s “What can I bring to this relationship to make it better?”

Teamwork is the combined commitment to overcome obstacles. It’s support. It’s encouragement. It’s working together.

It’s rising to the challenge of bettering yourself for the benefit of the whole. It’s providing the support & encouragement necessary to help others better themselves and succeed in their endeavors.

Whether it’s providing a kind word, sincere appreciation, a listening ear, or something else entirely, never stop trying to add value to your relationships.

Never underestimate the power of teamwork.

Never stop asking, “What can I do to make this relationship better?”

Google Photos

Now for the rest of the story...

Edit: I've looked at the new Photos. My initial assessment is there's more work to be done. There are things I like ... a lot. What I really don't like at all is they've taken away my ability to see how I've shared a particular photo. Now I can only see that I have shared it, not with whom or even if I shared publicly, only that it was either shared or not shared. I trust this will be fixed.

Heart's Blood

I haven't participated in self-portraiture in a very long time - at least not on a regular basis, and certainly not creatively. For this week, I decided to get creative again and #lyricallyinspired !! I also went back to my selfy roots - weapons! This is the same broadsword I used for my second self-portrait more than three years ago.
