Lotus Carroll1,769,738This is the Event for our January Self Portrait Challenge: New Beginnings! What is meant by this? It's up to you to interpret. I know that many of us think about what we want the next year to be like (even if you don't make resolutions) and this seems like a great way to express what's been on our minds in that sense. You can interpret this way, or any other way that makes sense to you. We're looking forward to what your creative minds will come up with! Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "New Beginnings" theme. Your photo must have been captured any time 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. You have about two weeks left to complete this task if you don't already have a qualifying photo that you took this month - you can do it! Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Inspiration* Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we'll 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/M7XTQ and ask away! We have categories for questions and discussion and are happy to help with anything.  *Prizes* $150 Gift Certificate for @108289626026839048870 http://www.borrowlenses.com 1 Year Awesome Account at @100424993750772730018 http://goo.gl/CCrBlS  @100266938567862344330 Mirrorless Mover 10 Bag http://goo.gl/Z4h0IN Please circle these sponsors - they make these prizes possible, so having them circled is a requirement to be a winner. There will be 3 winners. 1st place winner selects choice of 3 prizes. 2nd place selects choice of 2 remaining prizes. 3rd place receives the remaining prize. Winners must respond within 24 hours of being contacted or new winners will be chosen. At the end of the month, the Owners and Moderators of The Art of Self Portraiture Community will vote on the submissions and choose 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place winners. Please note that this is subjective (art always is!) and so we'll be basing our votes purely on our own opinions. Everyone who enters a photo is already a winner, of course. :) Please Remember These Rules: *Enter Only Your Own Work *Enter Only ONE Photo *Only SELF PORTRAITS *Must adhere to this month's theme. *Photo Must Be Taken in January 2014 *Can Only Win Once Every 6 Months *Winners Must Respond Within 24 Hours of Contact *Circle Our Prize Sponsors *No Trickery or Spamming *We Reserve The Right To Remove Entries for Misconduct *Anything Outside Guidelines/Rules Disqualifies A ParticipantJanuary Self Portrait Challenge: New Beginnings2014-01-01 07:00:00138

Jeff Smith61,179Welcome 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. Lots exotic locations, action packed chases as well as numerous villains and sexy leading ladies to offer inspiration here. Or just stick to a more general "SPY" or cloak and dagger noire theme. 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. As always I want to thank +LaDonna Pride    for all of her hard work and she will be helping along the way as our co-host.  Thanks everyone we are all looking forward to some great Selfies. Selfy Sunday FAQ can be found here. http://goo.gl/ngQeF Please check there first if you have any questions. Thanks _____________________ UPLOADING The event will open for uploading at 9:00 PM EDT. You can upload your photo by viewing the event and clicking on the "Add Photos" button. This is a Public event open to everyone. Any questions, again please check the FAQ or let myself or LaDonna know. Or check the +Selfy Sunday    page for updates. Cheers and have fun!

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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-06-16 10:51:18161316

Gailen Mapes59,834Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera G-I  - 16 of 30Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Ma2014-02-16 11:30:27138707

Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 3, 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpn*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of domain errors.  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204

Margaret Tompkins48,891>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2013-04-14 22:18:2334135071158

Auto, Off

- After years of using auto-exposure and being completely frustrated with the auto-focus on my lenses, I've finally just decided to go back to my roots and go back to the manual. Manual focus, manual speed.

I'm finding that having to take the time to actually focus the camera,  really makes me think about what I'm looking at.  And circumstances have forced me to stick with my 50mm prime lens until my zoom gets repaired.  

The best thing Kodak ever did for me (besides that first 110 camera) was to print the exposure settings on the inside of the box. I'm still using the camera meter for a baseline once in a while, but the f16 rule is still as accurate as it ever was.  Plus, now that all the settings are manual, I'm also forced to pay close attention to my depth of field.

It's time to do a little re-arranging of my photos here on G+.  Things have been a bit haphazard and not quite as intended.  I should have kept arranging things like this from the beginning.  Here for starters is some color.

Summer is coming

We're getting the campsites reserved for the first outing this summer.  Last year was the first time in over thirty years I've slept in a Westy.  My dad owned three and when he passed, I became the owner of his last one.  I can't wait to get back out on the road.  I keep debating whether to keep it all original, or change things. No matter what, it feels like home.

"How much do you want for it?"

I took this picture of my Uncle Bob behind the counter at Wilson Pawners Exchange, 1117 W. Wilson Avenue, Chicago, in 1980.  I was told he opened his resale shop about 1965, in what was then not so nice a neighborhood.  He always had a loaded 38 Special under the money drawer, and he liked to tell the story of how he used to keep a loaded rifle near the door and more than once had to pull it out. His favorite story to illustrate how bad things were, was to relate the time he saw someone stabbed right in front of the store, over a cigarette.   As to the neighborhood, by the time I took this picture it had mellowed (slightly), but you still wanted to be careful, especially after dark.  

He and the store have been gone for some years now and I only wish I had more pictures.  It's surprising for all the time I spent there, that I only havethis... more »

Unwelcome guests

We love the hibiscus that surround our house, but sometimes freeloaders show up.

You were my morning star

Summer will return to Wisconsin, and with it temperatures in the positive range.  For now, a flower from several summers ago.

We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet, for auld lang syne

Now that both my parents have passed, I have all the old photos from their house.  The other day I was looking through one of the boxes and found a photo album of mine that I haven't seen in over thirty years. This picture was taken at the original Nor Shore Resort in Antioch, Illinois, in 1980.  It looks like my father and mother have just come from work because his briefcase is on the bar. I don't recall ever seeing a picture where they looked happier. 

I realized this morning as I was scanning the photo, everything in the picture is gone.  The bar burned down and a new one has been built, and all three people in the picture are now passed away.

Taken with my Mamiya/Sekor 35mm camera.  To hazard a guess I would have to say the film is Kodak Tri-X as that is what I would have used the majority of the time back then for black and white.  Exposure is likely 1/30 at f:2.8 and I think the lens was a Mamiya/Sekor 135mm f/2.8.

Old School rules

Testing an old lens.  Nikon fell off a coffee table and now my zoom needs to go in for repair, again. It seemed a shame to let the lenses from my old film cameras go to waste in the mean time.  Bought an adapter for Olympus OM to Nikon and this is a test of a Soligor 28-80mm lens. Seems to be working well so far.  All manual, so no help from the electronics in the camera.  The worst of it is the camera can't control the f-stop, so I have to be careful and take my time.  Oh, and a bit hard to focus.  Really wish I had invested in the split prism viewfinder, have to work on that one.

ISO 200, 1/200th, f:8 or F:5.6 (hey, I was busy photographing).

Auto, Off

- After years of using auto-exposure and being completely frustrated with the auto-focus on my lenses, I've finally just decided to go back to my roots and go back to the manual. Manual focus, manual speed.

I'm finding that having to take the time to actually focus the camera,  really makes me think about what I'm looking at.  And circumstances have forced me to stick with my 50mm prime lens until my zoom gets repaired.  

The best thing Kodak ever did for me (besides that first 110 camera) was to print the exposure settings on the inside of the box. I'm still using the camera meter for a baseline once in a while, but the f16 rule is still as accurate as it ever was.  Plus, now that all the settings are manual, I'm also forced to pay close attention to my depth of field.

Yet beautiful and bright he stood,
  As born to rule the storm;
A creature of heroic blood,
  A proud, though child-like form.
