Lotus Carroll1,778,622This 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!)

Jeff Smith61,680Welcome 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.

Christopher Lira0*The Dates are the Art submission time frame for this event. I will be updating the start date everyday till we reach the ending date for submissions which will be oct. 1st* _9/27/12 edit:_ *The deadline is getting closer!! remember to email your submissions to both kaosq3k@gmail.com and manda.r.lira@gmail.com oct 1st is a few days away :)* Hi everyone many people have been asking me what this book is all about. Well this book is about Hope, it's about Love and It's about Strength, it's about saying "Life is beautiful, Cancer can suck it!"  8 months ago the love of my life Gladis was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer. When we broke the news to our kids @112903919681703164454 decided to create this art book "Art For The Heart" and asked artists on deviantart and the artists here on Google+ if they would help her by submitting pieces for this book so she can give it to her mom as a gift of Hope Strength Courage and Love. So between school, cross country and everything else in a teenage girls life she began working on this book collecting submissions, arranging the pages, adding memorable quotes from her mom, inspirational quotes and memories of things she loves about her mom.  This past week Wednesday Sept 12th after all the treatments (Hysterectomy, Lymph nodes removal, Chemo, external and internal radiation) Gladis's latest scan results came back. The results weren't what we had prayed for. This horrible disease has now spread to her lungs and possibly to her brain. My Gladis now has stage 4 cancer. This link here is Gladis's journey on whatnext.com http://www.whatnext.com/users/lirasgirl33  So getting back to Manda's art book Art For The Heart While Manda was editing this book this past week she came to me and told me she ran out of pages for the price range she was working in. So I told her just bump it up to the next price range which in turn opened up the book for 20 more pages till it bumps up in price again. This is when Manda and I came to you all here on Google+ again.  Here's the link to that original post https://plus.google.com/104857406109954440836/posts/bR1p4edhtdr after posting this @109602109099036550366 suggested I post this as an event so I took his wonderful advice and now here were are.  Since the original post I have 7 submissions already in my email! Thank you all that have already submitted!! Hopefully we get all 20 pages filled! and if by some chance we go over the 20 pages I will buy more pages or rearrange to book somehow to make everyone get their page. All art is beautiful. all will be accepted. The goal of this book is to bring a smile to Gladis's face and give her Hope and strength throughout this horrible journey she is on.  deadline for submissions is oct.1st. all submission can be emailed to kaosq3k@gmail.com or manda.r.lira@gmail.com You may also post them here in this event page as well. I think I covered everything if you still have any questions or any ideas suggestions I am open to anything and everytArt For The Heart2012-10-01 09:00:0043

It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense." *Join in shaPeace Day2012-09-26 09:30:00625

My son's first video he made for his art school class. The breaks between scenes are a big long in spots, but he wanted them to go with the music. There are some great shots of Columbus, Ohio in his video.

#leafportraits2016  This leaf is from an ornamental tree near my place, and unfortunately our weather has been so hot and dry most of the Summer that its usually colorful leaves are turning brown instead of the pretty colors it usually does, However, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a few of the colorful leaves last week, and get a few leaf portraits made of them including this one.

#leafportraits2016  Dark treatment given to this torn Oak leaf found while walking in a local park earlier this week. Actually, I forgot it in the car for a couple of hours and it dried up, but I was able to get a couple of really interesting leaf portraits out of it. Will share the second processed one in the next couple of days.

#leafportraits2016  Dark edit and light edit of three leaves from the red maple tree outside my patio. I haven't had time to edit many photos this Summer (thank you Obamacare!, but that's another story) let alone do more than one edit when I do find time. However, I did a dark edit of this photo yesterday in addition to the original light edit, as there is something I find fascinating in the more abstract, what is it, dark painting-like edits. Of course, I like the original lighter leaf portrait too, but dare edits are a way to give leaf portraits a more artist twist. Which do you prefer?

#leafportraits2016   As I have indicated here before, I have a love-hate relationship with a curtained maple tree that hangs over my patio and is located just outside its fence. While it does provide some nice shade in the Summer, and home for a nest of squirrels that drive the weenies crazy, and a place for birds, it is a messy tree that drops its buds, whirly-gigs, then the stems of the whirly-gigs, and finally its leaves all over my patio and into the small fish pond in the corner (which why someone would put it in that corner under such a messy tree is beyond me, but it came with the condo). However, it does provide for some nice photography moments just outside my door. The red buds in Spring look beautiful against a clear blue sky. The red whirly-gigs blow beautifully in the wind with the emerging leaves. The leaves in late-Spring and Summer provide backdrops for bird photos, and sunset photos... more »

The red whirly-gigs blow beautifully in the wind with the emerging leaves. The leaves in late-Spring and Summer provide backdrops for bird photos, and sunset photos through the leaves. Finally, the leaves I dread raking and blowing out of the patio so much in the Fall and in times of dry Summer weather turn magnificent colors. This one is from a recent dry spell, and just a few turn color and drop off during dry conditions. In several weeks the rest will start to turn orangish first, then bright shades of red and drop off creating some great leaf portrait opportunities and many leaf raking headaches for me. Again the love-hate relationship with the red maple tree that hangs over my patio.___

Spent the whole day yesterday at orientation for my son at Columbus College of Art & Design and helping him move into his dorm. Hoping that being around at that art and talent will help me get the art and photography going on my end again. Work has been busy, and just haven't been motivated after work and on weekends to do much art, photography (editing mainly, still been taking photos though) and jewelry . This lily is from July when we visited Holden Arboretum here in Ohio. For #FloralFriday  with +Tamara Pruessner +Eustace James +Kiki Nelson and myself +Beth Akerman

I was very disappointed that on the day Rob and I visited the 2016 Ohio State Fair in late-July, the poultry and rabbits were not there yet. Last year there were no poultry at our fair as there was a bird-flu outbreak and the State did not allow any poultry shows. So I was excited to see them back this year, but hit the wrong day to go. On top of the fact that I missed the dairy cows too, as they were changing over from certain breeds to others that day as well. I did manage to find the one rooster there that day, and get his portrait. I guess next year I will have to challenge +Alan Shapiro on poultry portraits.

Flamingo from the National Aviary in Pittsburgh. From a visit there in July, and edited yesterday. I am so behind in editing photos, but am trying to edit a few each week to share with all of you. Been a busy Summer with work (dealing with an Obamacare failure) and catching Pokemon with my son (he's 19 btw) after work, but it gets us out walking in the evening, and oh, spending time with +rob slipsky too, and catching a few fish here and there.
