Lotus Carroll1,775,119This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: Multiplicity. What this means is create a self portrait where you appear in the image multiple times (2 or more, your choice). Get creative and think up an interesting scene you can use this effect on and then make your image. Here is where you enter your ONE Multiplicity Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST March 31st, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Tips & Inspiration* There are several different ways to go about achieving this effect. In camera, you can use a long exposure and move around. Alternately, you can use post processing to create multiples in an image. Photoshop is most widely considered in this type of editing, but other programs can also be used to achieve effect, such as Gimp. For those with no experience with creating "multiplicity" images with post processing, here are a few resources to help you get started: Photoshop Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/cyTpyZ Gimp Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/hChZ0Q Examples from Flickr: http://goo.gl/os2P65 Other Examples: http://goo.gl/DqlDtR Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired.

Margot M0You are invited to make a quirky entrance into 2015 by submitting your images to this Once Only Event: *Rule Breakers Rule* In this event you get to break every photographic rule and, more importantly, play with breaking some of your own rules.  Perhaps this is the year to try Boring-Black&White, Freaking-Techno-Colour, In-your-Face-Street, Not-the-Rule-of-Thirds, Definitely Not-A-Straight-Horizon, Not-a-Thing-in-Focus, Take-Your-Clothes-Right-Off, Shot-from-the-Hip, Backlit-Shit, Another-Hippy-Dippy-Diptych, and many, many more. Anyway, who made these damn rules?  No irony intended, but here are the Rules of the Event:  * No more than two submissions per person * Add some clues about the rule you broke * Use #rulebreakersrule  on each images so we can find them. (No infractions please or the Rule Breaker Police will #uncircle , #block #ignore and #youwillbedeadtous ) Submissions from 21.01.15 - 31.01.15 @109935908035703002300 and I will chose the winner. We hope that in the process we don’t become #deadtoyou . The winner can choose a print from any of our images.  One from each of us. If you don't like our images, fair enough, we will send you a card :-) We will announce the winner by the 10 February 2015.  Peace and Have Fun...

Scott Jarvie440,583*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00142  
Trever McGhee98,052Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart.

*Close up with Winter... *

I just love winter
the cold, the icy wind,
the fresh, cold air
and the softness of the snowflakes

I'm a little bit behind, through
many things going on at once..
Hope to catch up with you in week 4..

I do wonder what they have helped to reveal and discover...

Removing the original colors

which here grown in a steel to icy blue abstract.

Hope you enjoy

Odin's Sledge


While
slowly resting
close by the swift stream
I turned my head after hearing
two ravens flying up and away over frozen fields

and just a moment later I did saw Odin in his frozen sledge...


I can remember my grandma reading me germany and nordic sagas
when I was a little one...

Glyphs of Atlantis II


If a civilisation
would have existed
before all others
and developed writing
what would their signs have look like?



Series Energy & Process
The Energy and Process series consists of
multi-technique (Photography and PC) image, each is originating
from a digital photography, no additional textures or add ons.

The contrast of colors and free forms in those images remind me of elements, energies which react with each other, which seem to be alive in an ongoing process. I create abstract art which shows mundane things transformed into the unknown.

* I always known...*

that there be a man on the moon..
But only after I had a little accident
while traveling the wormholes in our
galaxy I found it was really true....
By the way:
Can somebody can rescue me
out of 1969???

We're only accepting G+ artists and photographers which are posting more of their own works than reposted images in their own stream  

  General rule: 
Please make sure you have permission to use the other image(s).(we don't want to have copyright issues after the diptych/collage has been posted) . DO not use any free domain images for any artworks here.  (We don't want to have copyright issues after the diptych/collage has been posted). If you are interested to make a new artwork for any of the forms of collaboration our little group is focussed upon, it is good manner to ask the other artists of his/her allowance to use her/his artwork for your creation. Normally some can ask most of the artists in this group for allowance without any problems but please ask.   We are focussed to several ways of collaborations which are represented by the categories in this group.  

Here is a small explanation and some basic rules for each category:   CATEGORIES:  
*COLLABORATIONS / RANDOM ENCOUNTERS.  
1. The image you are posting must be composed of at least 2 separate photos. One should be your own photo, the other image(s) must belong to the other artist(s) (copyright ownership - no free domain images from the internet please). 
2. Please tag your image #randomencounter and #diptych and post it to Category Collaborations 
 3. Please provide information regarding your creation-the name of the other artist(s), link to their profile(s) and tell us something about your work.    

*DOUBLE/MULTIPLE EXPOSURES - film / digital composites.
  1.) The image you are posting must be composed of at least 2 separate photos. One should be your own photo, the other image(s) should belong another artist(s). 
  2. Please tag your image #randomencounter and #multiple exposure and post it to category One-artists Creations 
3. as rule 3 in collaborations.   

*ONE ARTIST CREATIONS (diptychs/collages made by one artist) 
 1.) Present us a work of images of your own. Film/ digital/mixed media works. It can be anything from diptych, multiple exposures, collages aso.  Rules 1&2 from above apply as well, but with #oneartistcreation 

  Open Encounters  Here any artist can present 1 image which he/she gives an open & unconditional allowance to be used by other members of this group for collaborations, collages and multiple exposures.  So: you don't have to ask to use an image in that category. Please post the final image in one of other RE categories & name the other artist in your post as well.  Don't post the final work in your stream without asking permission from the other artist as well!___

Yearning for the light



in the hidden corners
at the farthest end
, on the very edge,
almost in the shadows
there grows hope
in the dim light

Destination: Unknown


A new year,
a new BW Project with 26 different themes which will be posted
biweekly.

I don't know right now where my project will lead me.
If I stay with Self portraiture as last year or go some
new ways.

Signs of Life


Sometimes the colors
of shots reminds me of a undersea world
of a realm which not much explored by us humans..
but there more room there is for imagination



Series Energy & Process
The Energy and Process series consists of
multi-technique (Photography and PC) image, each is originating
from a digital photography, no additional textures or add ons.

The contrast of colors and free forms in those images remind me of elements, energies which react with each other, which seem to be alive in an ongoing process. I create abstract art which shows mundane things transformed into the unknown.

Rising veils of Mist


as the light dims down
and the hue shifts to blue
misty veils slowly rising
from the valley
day is closing
and so does the year

Christmas day


Twentyfourth December

And "suddenly" it is christmas..
Not a quiet and relaxing day till now,
but full of preparation, packing the last gifts,
decorating
a church visit,
dinner preparation and dinner
and singing among the christmas tree.
Now the dark blue sky with a silvery full moon and the lights of christmas all around does put our little world under it's charm.

I would like to cite Augusta E. Rundel about how christmas can feel:

Christmas -- that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance -- a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved
