Lotus Carroll1,774,290This 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 & Tips* Need some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing @110573952887886961621 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/vzcRHL *Remember 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:* Snapseed VSCOcam Retouch (cloning tool!)

Remember the Summer of 1971 ?
Beaufort Water Festival Boat Race

It was the summer of 1971, and I had just bought my first new SLR.  Equipped with my new Minolta SRT 101 and a Tokina 300mm lens, I went with my friend, in the yellow boat, to the boat race in Beaufort, South Carolina.   I was working on my panning skills, as the boats passed in front of the spectators at about 85 miles per hour.  Shot on color slide film and printed as Cibachrome direct positive print years ago and scanned a few years ago.  Still looking for the original slide.

Remember the Summer of 1971 ?
Beaufort Water Festival Boat Race

It was the summer of 1971, and I had just bought my first new SLR.  Equipped with my new Minolta SRT 101 and a Tokina 300mm lens, I went with my friend, in the yellow boat, to the boat race in Beaufort, South Carolina.   I was working on my panning skills, as the boats passed in front of the spectators at about 85 miles per hour.  Shot on color slide film and printed as Cibachrome direct positive print years ago and scanned a few years ago.  Still looking for the original slide.

Faro Castillo del Morro
The lighthouse located in Havana, Cuba and was built in 1845 on the ramparts of the Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro, an old fortress guarding the harbor to Havana.  The fortress was built in 1589.  The lighthouse has a height of 82 feet and displays two white flashes every 15 seconds.

Sapelo Island Lighthouse
Sapelo Island, Georgia

On a recent trip to Sapelo Island, Georgia, we were able to tour the restored brick lighthouse that was built in 1820.  Today the restored tower is again used as a navigation aid with it's distinctive red and white stripe daymark and an electric beacon.  The red and white bands were added to the tower in 1850, and fourth order Fresnel lens was installed on the original tower in 1854.  The brick tower had been inactive since 1905 when it was replaced by a steel skeleton tower with a third order Fresnel Lens that operated until 1933.  In 1998 the old original brick tower was restored to the way it is today.

Egmont Key Lighthouse
Entrance of Tampa Bay

When the first lighthouse was built in 1848 on Egmont Key, it was the only lighthouse on the Gulf coast of Florida.  It was later destroyed by hurricanes and the current tower was built in 1858.  The tower stood 87 feet above sea level and was topped by a 3rd or Fresnel lens.  During the American Civil War, the confederates removed the lens to frustrate the Union Navy, but was replaced after the war.  It remained on the tower until 1944 when the Fresnel lens was replace with an aerobeacon.  It was automated in 1990.
