Lotus Carroll1,770,597This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo. Just because you use a cell phone doesn't mean your self portrait has to be of the "facebook style" mobile or reflection variety. That little guy has a camera inside it, so treat it like one!Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait using only a cell phone to capture and process (no computer software post processing!). Your photo must have been captured this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.Tutorial & TipsNeed some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing +Mark Rodriguez made a tutorial about shooting cell phone photos to get you inspired - see it here: http://goo.gl/z3IZ23 He also posted a video of his process - see it here: http://goo.gl/vzcRHLRemember these Do's and Don'ts to get the best photo:*DO take the time to set up your shot thoughtfully.*DO invest time and effort and try more than once to get it right.*DO make sure your lens is clean.*DO take your photo in adequate light so it's not grainy, blurry, or dark.*DO put the cell phone down and use a timer - stop taking all your photos by holding the phone and pointing at yourself or a mirror.*DO try different angles for the best composition.*DO read the posts in our Tutorials Category and try the concepts and ideas you learn from them: http://goo.gl/uSUULE *DO try different apps and see what works best for you.*DO be aware of your background! 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

Susan Porter11,209ROYGBIV REVISITEDWho is up for another short round of color?  Spring is in the air for us in the northern hemisphere and fall must be around the corner for those of you in the southern half of the world.  To me, that means there is a ton of color out there to be found.  So toss on some walking shoes grab the camera and let's have some fun.  Guidelines1. Let me know on this post if you're in and I will create a circle of participants.2. Each day will be a different color with that color being the star of the shot. Photos may be taken in advance.  No need to wait until the day to shoot the color. May 1 - RedMay 2 - OrangeMay 3 - YellowMay 4 - GreenMay 5 - Blue/IndigoMay 6 - Violet May 7 - RainbowOnly seven photos are permitted per person and should be posted 1 per day.   Spammers will be given the boot.  3. Shoot the actual colors.  No cheating and having Photoshop/Lightroom, etcetera give you the color.  (Tweaking, enhancing, layering or other techniques are ok, but no blue oranges.) 4. The color of the day should be the star of the shot. No nudity, drugs, violent acts or other photos that will violate Google policies.  5. Add the photo to the event or use the hashtag ROYGBIV in your stream6. Any camera/level of experience is welcome to join.  7.

Gailen Mapes73,148Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-Q - 9 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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.2014-12-09 12:00:00129000

Graeme McRae36,119Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see lots of new posts in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then you might want to reshare it to get more followers. It's a circle of people I started following during the 1st quarter of 2014, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest is other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoyi2014-11-30 23:50:064975314

Gailen Mapes70,942Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-Q - 9 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.2014-11-09 11:33:10131614

Gailen Mapes68,805Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-Q - 9 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-09 10:25:011379013

Tablet Help??

  My hubby decided it would be a good idea for him to get a tablet of some sort to use for his business/work instead of having to use his phone.  We use Android devices but have Macs for computers. 

Any suggestions? I would really love to get him the iPad but it's more than we should really spend at the moment.

Representing Chicago for more than 100 years as one of its most recognizable landmarks is Sullivan Center, formerly known as the Carson Pirie Scott building. 

Having undergone one of the city's most aggressive and award-winning vintage restorations completed in 2011, Sullivan Center blends the qualities of a bygone era with virtually limitless 21st century technology, evolving into Chicago's number one Loop destination. 

Occupying almost a full city block, bordered by State, Madison, Monroe and Wabash, Sullivan Center is well positioned in both size and location to support large retail, office, restaurant, school and entertainment users.

It kills me that it's a Target now.  It's still one gorgeous piece of architecture though!

What do you think about that building on the left?  I think I might take it out.

I Was Born One Mornin' When the Sun Didn't Shine

Still channeling my inner +Paul Howard 

Day 4 / 5 of my homage to Paul #fivedaybwselfiechallenge 

I'm not thrilled with this one - it works but I had a little better shot in mind as far as lighting - but hey, the garage, a desk lamp and light from the hall way...again, I could/should put forth more effort but I'm too tired.  :)  Thought about liquifying myself a bit to but ah oh well.  I yam what I yam... hahaha get it Paul???

Here is Paul's 4/5 shot: https://plus.google.com/111382451300271293204/posts/JZGQYnvXx5N

Paul's rules:
Here’s my (ridiculously ineffective and totally arbitrary) “rules”:

2. Fresh photos, old photos, doesn’t matter, but not previously published in black and white. Something about this photo has to have a “new” aspect to it. 
3. One per day for five days. 
4. Nominate someone, don’t nominate anyone, doesn’t matter. 
5. Feel free to say no. 
6. Just came up with this one: if you accept, post ‘em where you like ‘em. G+, Facebook, Ello, Tsu, Instagram, doesn’t matter, any or all of them. Tag me so I can bother you about them though. 
7. It can be any kind of selfie you like. I mean, I don’t even have to really SEE you as long as you’re in it somehow. ___

Temptation

All these years of walking by +Central Camera Co in Chicago, photographing the iconic sign I've not once gone in.  Why?  Will power!!  So, Wednesday +Bryan Esler was in town and had a few hours to go shooting, when we were done we headed to Miller's Pub for a refreshment. Miller's Pub happens to be one block over from Central Camera, so we shot the sign and went in!  EEK.

It's such a cool store if you've never been inside - a throw back to the old camera stores with their bins of bits and parts and cameras and film and shelves of lenses and more cameras and just stuff!  The smell just takes you back (if you even are old enough to remember that) to the old local camera shop where we took our film to be developed.  

Super friendly and nice staff, albeit kept trying to sell me something.  (not really honestly but...willpower...... more »

Super friendly and nice staff, albeit kept trying to sell me something.  (not really honestly but...will power...must be written all over my face).   He pulls this amazing lens off the shelf after he saw what camera I had, here put this on, try it out.  No!  Oh come on.  NO!  +Bryan Esler  was absolutely no help either.   So of course, I did. OOOOO crap.  Funny too as we were just talking about wide angles for full frame cameras earlier in the day.  It's on sale too. Of course. 

Well I just went and looked it up - new. Yikes.  Hmmmm, that's a pretty damn good deal there at Central Camera for that lens.  I told the guy if I come back and they still have it, then it's meant to be.  hahaha.  We'll see.  May have to go back in when I'm down there on Saturday with +Bette Kauffman :)

Taken with the Canon 14mm 2.8L ultra wide - that is still (perhaps) sitting on the shelf at Central Camera!

I don't know why I don't shoot this building more or haven't shot it much in the past.  That will change!

I know social media is a pain and a necessary evil but it's so cool how it works sometimes....a couple weeks ago because of Social Media I was able to meet +Thomas Hawk - it was great!   Yesterday +Levi Sim posted on fb for someone looking to shoot in Chicago.  Today I spent the afternoon with 2 new photog friends wandering the city and checking out the new Maggie Daley Park ice skating ribbon.

Played around with a 3 shot exposure and +Nik Collection by Google HDR efex - among other things.

Day 3 of 5 - Still Channeling my inner +Paul Howard
How Do, Sir
 
Day 3 / 5 of my little #fivedaybwselfiechallenge and it’s a tip of the hat for a half decent Wednesday.   (Which should be good as I head downtown Chicago to meet a few photogs!)

Link to Paul's post:  https://plus.google.com/111382451300271293204/posts/8HfHNCWgRfs

Here are Paul's rules:
Here’s my (totally slipshod, ineffective, completely made up, and absolutely breakable) “rules”:
1. Has to be in black and white, or some variation thereof. Toned, straight, grainy, I don’t care. But black and white. 
2. Fresh photos, old photos, doesn’t matter, but not previously published in black and white. Something about this photo has to have a “new” aspect to it. 
3. One per day for five days.

4. Nominate someone, don’t nominate anyone, doesn’t matter. Entirely up to you. 
5. Feel free to say no. 
6. Just came up with this one: if you accept, post ‘em where you like ‘em. G+, Facebook, Ello, Tsu, Instagram, doesn’t matter, any or all of them. 
7. Although I’m doing portraits (which I guess is kinda obvious) they don’t have to be. Some people have taken to doing other views of themselves (wow, that sounds bad…..it’s not) and that’s perfectly awesome! ___

A Man Woman and her bird

Still channeling my inner +Paul Howard (because he's the one who tagged me in this)

His Day 2 / 5 of the #fivedaybwselfiechallenge has him pulling out a previously unedited image taken during his little "Bogart" experiment.  Post here:  https://plus.google.com/111382451300271293204/posts/W48nN1p3cH4

My Day 2/5 had me cheating! (Webcam photos count, no?)  Although I did use PSE gasp and a layer even, and I adjusted my lighting! ha. Seriously the time thing and the not sleeping thing combined just make me not put in a whole lot of effort!!  But..I'm continuing with my
evil plan!

BEST of +TransportTuesday

Curators of some of the photo themes we've taken part in are asking us for our best-of shots for 2014. 

Transport Tuesday has been one of the themes I've probably taken part in the longest due to my love of cars and car shows.  

These old Lalique crystal hood ornaments though, they are stand alone art pieces themselves!

Thanks to curators +Gene Bowker   and +Annie Irving  for another  great year of trains, planes, ships, bikes, motorcycles, scooters, & you name it types of transportation!

Channeling my inner +Paul Howard

By now most of you have seen Paul's post about the  #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge - in that post he tagged me.  Good thing I like you Paul.   

I tried to channel my inner Paul but can't quite get it right, although if I took more time to set up proper lights and all that maybe I'd get closer, but who has time for that??   

Here is my Day 1.

Paul's rules:
1. Has to be in black and white, or some variation thereof. Toned, straight, grainy, I don’t care. But black and white.
2. Fresh photos, old photos, doesn’t matter, but not previously published in black and white. Something about this photo has to have a “new” aspect to it.

I've chosen not to nominate anyone because I know many of us are coming up to the holidays and if you're like me you haven't even thought about shopping yet. (I hate shopping)

If you want to participate tag me - I'd love to see what you do.

As for me, I have a plan for the rest of my shots - they may not happen consecutively but I will get them done.  Muwahahahahahaha  :)

Tablet Help??

  My hubby decided it would be a good idea for him to get a tablet of some sort to use for his business/work instead of having to use his phone.  We use Android devices but have Macs for computers. 

Any suggestions? I would really love to get him the iPad but it's more than we should really spend at the moment.

...it is all around in Milwaukee even it a lot of the exhibits were closed today. The Milwaukee Art Museum is art itself. Santiago Calatrava is not just an architect, he is an artist and Dale Chihuly is an architect of glass. Put the two together and you get ART.

+Randy Scherkenbach hahahahahaha, I hit auto tone in LR and it made it a little darker but I kind of like it!   Just giving you grief, I didn't even think about actually setting the shot up myself first. 

Really great to meet you Thomas and thanks for letting us tag along on your Museum shooting and sharing your obsession passion!

+Sevie Kenyon great too meet you too!!

Grab those skateboards and rollerblades,  there’s a new place to skate in town. Grant Park is home to a new three-acre skate park. The $2.7 dollar project opens today, a month earlier than expected.

Canadian Pacific Holiday Train

Thanks to +Steve Boyko train hunter extraordinaire I learned that the Canadian Pacific Holiday train would be 20 minutes from my house this morning!   How fun!  So happy I was able to go, they do this across Canada and Northern US as a food drive for the local food banks wherever they stop.  What a great cause!  There is also 45 minutes of entertainment  - singer/band.  

Here is the back of the train from this morning.  I'll post a few others later.  I would so love to see this and shoot it at night though when it's all lit up (It was lit up but as you can see...it was a little sunny this morning!)

Here is the website in case it comes through near you:

Thanks to +Steve Boyko train hunter extraordinaire I learned that the Canadian Pacific Holiday train would be 20 minutes from my house this morning!   How fun!  So happy I was able to go, they do this across Canada and Northern US as a food drive for the local food banks wherever they stop.  What a great cause!  There is also 45 minutes of entertainment  - singer/band.  

Here is the back of the train from this morning.  I'll post a few others later.  I would so love to see this and shoot it at night though when it's all lit up (It was lit up but as you can see...it was a little sunny this morning!)

Here is the website in case it comes through near you:

Sharing is caring and it IS the season of giving - be sure to read +Shantha Marie Fountain's post - what a wonderful way to support each other and give back!

Also - if you have your own shop/online store - please leave a link in the comments either on her original post or on this post - let's spread the love around!!

The Season of Giving

Yesterday, I put out a call to all of you creatives, crafters, artists, and most importantly, friends, to find out what you had going on in the online world for the holiday season.

I am doing something a little different this year, and I want to purchase a portion of the gifts for Christmas online and from my friends.  This ensures that my loved ones will receive unique (and sometimes one of a kind) gifts that will mean a lot to them while also supporting my small business friends.

In turn, I am hoping this will also allow my friends and fellow artists to have a wonderful holiday season as well!

Yesterday, I also had the chance to take a look at a few links from some of my friend's online shops so I created a collage of a few and the links to those e-stores are below:

+Isabelle Fortin : http://www.redbubble.com/people/isabellefortin
+Shelly Kay : http://www.redbubble.com/people/shellykay
+Isabelle Cardinal : http://www.redbubble.com/people/eyecreate
+Lauri Novak : http://www.laurinovakphotography.com/
+Beth Akerman : http://www.miribethbeads.com/
+Dawn M's Daughter: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MsNicoleDesigns
+Mark Rodriguez : http://www.redbubble.com/people/wondertoonel
+StrangeStore : http://society6.com/paulstickland
+Carolyn Curtis +Scott Krichau +Wenchkin : http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/home/YuccaFlatsNM

Each store has various crafts, art pieces, and decor that is a perfect gift for family and friends.

More importantly, this puts the money back into our community during the holidays and a little less in the pockets of bigger businesses and chain retailers.

If you have a small business, craft sale, or art gallery online that is selling during the season, please add a link below, but if you are in the market for oddities and unique gifts, please check out the links above!___Sharing is caring and it IS the season of giving - be sure to read +Shantha Marie Fountain's post - what a wonderful way to support each other and give back!

The Bean on Film

Looks pretty good on film no?   

Thought I lost this roll somewhere after my trip this past June.  Had it developed and have found a few good ones from Belgium and this one from Chicago to share.
