Eric Raeber1,148,877I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0013

Signup here for Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2017

This is a special program on the art and weird science of motion blurs, intentional camera movement, long exposures, and much more, offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers . I will be taking on a small group of people for a free eight week online mentorship which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. This is going to be huge fun, and a great learning experience!

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence. My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

New Quantum Tunneling

As I explore the spaceways of the galaxy, sometimes I come upon ancient treasures of Those who have gone before. I found a box of parts, with no instructions that I could comprehend, and I managed to build this... Dark Matter particle detector? New Wormhole Transit Facilitator #WTF ? Who'd like to be the first to try it out?
Happy #alienabductionfriday !

The Stars Are Bright Tonight

How often do we neglect the obvious? I live in the area, but I've only photographed the Golden Gate Bridge a couple of times. I shared this one a long time ago in my Coastlines: California collection ( https://plus.google.com/collection/gs2wR ), but I decided it probably belongs here as well.

Featherweight

Small birds are the theme for this week's #BirdPoker #NewBirdPoker with +Dominique Morice, and I found one of the smallest of them all: the Short-tailed pygmy tyrant (Myiornis ecaudatus) from the Brazilian Amazon. This guy is so tiny that most hummingbirds could kick his butt and take his lunch money -- the smallest of the passerines.

Is there an additional list I should tag? I'm sure +Jasbir S. Randhawa will know :-)

It began with the hard radiation. Then the Tendrils, reaching for my skin, investigating and measuring. Finally I felt wisps of unfamiliar thoughts brushing gently through my mind... I barely noticed as the Ship set down beside me.

Signup here for Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2017

This is a special program on the art and weird science of motion blurs, intentional camera movement, long exposures, and much more, offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers . I will be taking on a small group of people for a free eight week online mentorship which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. This is going to be huge fun, and a great learning experience!

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence. My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

My own photography has benefited enormously from mentorships and coaching offered by +Nathan Beaulne, +Robin Griggs Wood, +Darryl Van Gaal, +Sairam Sundaresan, +Eric Raeber, +Brian Wood-Koiwa, and others here on G+, and my artistic partnership with my #brotherinblur +Heiko Mahr who will join me for this program as well. I’ve had the chance to assist with a number of additional programs, and now to serve as a director of the overall Mentorship Program along with Robin and +Ron Clifford; I’m delighted to have the opportunity to offer my own favorite subject once again! To add to the fun, I've invited the people who participated in and assisted with the last three years' programs to help out this time around, so we'll have all of that fabulous experience in the group.

We’ll be covering a range of topics, including not just how to take certain kinds of images (and sometimes why), but also tools in post-processing and phone apps. My goal is to be able to offer the program to you regardless of the tools you use to capture (or process) images – DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, point & shoot cameras, or Apple or Android smartphones (1). You’ll need to be familiar with the manual operation of any camera, have at least a basic understanding of the Exposure Triangle, and have time to take at least 100-200 photos per week and perhaps many more (because practice with your hands will be key to some techniques; just knowing how won’t be enough). You’ll also need to spend quality time in a (private) community supporting, enjoying, learning from and teaching your fellow participants!

Selections will be announced on Tuesday, May 16, and the first lesson will be posted on Thursday, May 18. The program will run eight weeks, through July 13.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and publicly posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– at least a public (or public collection) photo post every few days, and more is better (the program itself will be private to the group selected, except for the option of a public display album of your favorite work at the end).
• You must be interactive here on G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You must have the time available to participate in this workshop.

To be considered for selection, please answer the following questions, on the main post only, here:
https://plus.google.com/+AlexLapidus/posts/diAFj4moGn8
(your application will not be seen at any reshares). Please note that signups are not first-come, first-served, and comments will remain open for at least a few days, so please don’t worry if you’re not first in line.

1) Cameras (including smartphones) you expect to use in the program
2) Photo editing software and apps used most
3) Your goals for this mentorship
4) Amount of time you have available for participation


(1) There is at least one topic I've found it difficult to address if you’re using a point&shoot camera or smartphone alone (call it half of one of the eight weeks). The ideal combination would be DSLR or mirrorless plus a phone, and if you use only a P&S it needs to be capable of full manual shooting (shutter speed, aperture and ISO).

+Margrit Schwarz has taken her time collecting her thoughts from last fall's Beyond the Blur program that I ran with +Heiko Mahr and the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , but they were well worth the wait! Her studies have taken her to a place that is new and innovative, while still intimately linked to the foundations of modern art. Please enjoy her images from the program and Beyond!

Final Plus Post - Beyond the Blur

For some of us, the Beyond the Blur +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers by +Alex Lapidus and +Heiko Mahr just never ends... But as Alex and Heiko are preparing to lead another group of photographers into Blurryland, I finally must try to summarize - reluctantly, because in my mind I am still exploring, thinking, wondering...

Last fall, I was fortunate to join an amazingly talented group of photographers for a wild ride through art history. Like the first Blur mentorship, this one once again opened doors to worlds I didn't know exist. It was expertly designed as a journey from Impressionism and Romanticism all the way to Contemporary Art. In between, we explored Symbolism and Cubism, delved into Abstract Expressionism and Futurism, then added a dose of Pop Art and Wabi Sabi. Oh and did I mention Dadaism?!

But, most of all, we each took a journey into our own, inner world of ideas and emotions, and learned new ways to express ourselves, cameras in hand, in the various 'languages' we were given. We got together for Museum Days around the world, we exchanged and acquired different ways of viewing art - everyone else's and our own. We developed an appreciation of other ways of seeing the world.

For me, once again, the results were unexpected and took my work in new directions. During the first Blur mentorship last summer, I discovered Multiple Exposures. As I continued playing with that technique last year, my images got ever more complex and in some ways, confusing to myself. In Beyond the Blur I discovered the concept of Reductionism in art, first through the work of Rothko, then by starting to practice, in very small steps, my own version of it. It remains a continuous journey with a worthwhile destination - trying to find and focus on what in Blurryland, and often times in life, is almost always out of focus - the essence of a scene.

Thank you Alex, Heiko and all my travel mates for another inspiring journey :-)___+Margrit Schwarz has taken her time collecting her thoughts from last fall's Beyond the Blur program that I ran with +Heiko Mahr and the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , but they were well worth the wait!
