Lotus Carroll1,778,021This 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 Jarvie446,564*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 05:30:00141  
Trever McGhee96,530Please 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. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Brighten up

I had times
while shooting in the alps
where I nearly forgot to press the shutter as I was in awe by what I saw
a concert of light and shadows, played by clouds, mountains and snow...



Series: My Germany
-----------------
Germany is a diverse country, with many different landscapes, some beauty and bountiful, some barren and harsh -
it has high mountains like the alps, mountainous areas like black wood forest and rolling hills close to my home, and plains with a far horizons in the north - and many, many sights in between.
I do want to show you a bit of the variety of my country - how I do see it in color or black and white. Hope you enjoy

A stone so bright like light
that is what the german name
of the castle could be referring to
as it is Lichtenstein.

The first castle was build there in the middle ages,
then it was a ruin for some centuries before it was rebuild
in the romantik area of the 19th century where castles where in fashion again.

A flower, a rose
sweet fragance and lustrous colors
gently petals and powerdy pollen
a stinging stem and five green leaves

what is the inner truth of beauty?

If
it is true,
that a picture
is worth 1000 words,
those words would form poems

whereever
the butterfly vanished
it lead me
to a place in the shadows
of story telling chestnut trees.

Adolescence
the bud just opened
leaving behind childhood
ready to evanescent into the future


Series: In Search of Georgia O'keeffe
----------------------------------------------------------
Flowers have always fascinated me.
They short lived, faced harsh weather and are often overlooked.
They are enticing, decoying and for seductive - at least for bees ;-) and photographers.
Georgia O'Keeffe once expressed what I can't say any better

"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not."

Thank you very much +Michael A Koontz
for starting this.

Now I would see this community a bit more to plan classes then to hold all classes here, as I guess that one community is just to small for it.

Anyhow:
In the last discussion we had this status:

G+ U could consist out of
Mentorships - needs a teacher/mentors - group size can only be restricted
Classes - need a teacher - group size can be restricted ony
Courses - self study - course size can be unlimited - but
elements for courses need to be individual ( e.g. a new member starting a course would need to answer all questions/test without being affected by others).

WIth the current ecosystem of G+ only the first two things can be managed,
with a class might be less interactive as a mentorship.

WIth the current ecosystem of G+ only the first two things can be managed,
with a class might be less interactive as a mentorship.

From the mentorships I've done already I know that being mentor/teacher can be very time consuming, but also very rewarding as the mentor/teacher learns and grows, but it doesn't go without a lot volunteering.

Thus we can give it a start but it would be great if G+ could add elements which would allows to set up courses for members.___

A stone so bright like light
that is what the german name
of the castle could be referring to
as it is Lichtenstein.

The first castle was build there in the middle ages,
then it was a ruin for some centuries before it was rebuild
in the romantik area of the 19th century where castles where in fashion again.



Series: My Germany
-----------------------------------
Germany is a diverse country, with many different landscapes, some beauty and bountiful, some barren and harsh -
it has high mountains like the alps, mountainous areas like black wood forest and rolling hills close to my home, and plains with a far horizons in the north - and many, many sights in between.
I do want to show you a bit of the variety of my country - how I do see it in color or black and white. Hope you enjoy

Rhythm is it...

An images captures one subject
A piece of music has one tune with several harmonies
Thus what are the harmonies to a subject in an image then?
Multiplicity is something which fascinates me in the last
time -- but somehow everything I tried did not work out first...
but somehow after seeking in older files.. I found that I already achieved
what I wanted it was only hidden in the bits and bytes..
and while helping in a mentorship about blur
I had the idea HOW to process those that I get what I wanted.

Gone fishing...

Some can debate
whether streetphotography is restricted to the city
or to any environments some can find people.
Maybe some would call this documentary, maybe
contextual portraiture - but the difference to portraiture would
be that a portrait models willingly and often paid
whereas street is about also showing situations and emotions
which are not staged in any kind.
I did expand streets to my pathes and alleys, tracks
and villages

Hi all

There is a great photo contest by the University of Oklahoma with the topic "Connect".

IMHO Connect is one of our main topics in our community, thus I would love if we join forces and run in this contest - either as seperate artists which refer to the Random enouncter or as a collective.

Due date: July, 6th, No Entry Fee
- If artist work will be selected some need to send the mounted print to them,
that is somethin we would need to solve in case we would be selected-

So what do you think?

Here is the quote of the call of entries and the link:

"The Woody Gaddis Gallery, on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma, seeks entries for the juried photographic exhibition entitled Connect. To connect is to bring together, relate in some respect, link to a power supply, provide access and communication... We... more »

We are looking for photographic works that relate to the idea or embrace the definition of the word connect. Any interpretation of this concept captured or created through the visual medium of photography is open for submission. "

Forms come and go
while the clouds
moving along their unseen pathways
only to reveal
the secret of tranquility


Series: My Germany
---------------
Germany is a diverse country, with many different landscapes, some beauty and bountiful, some barren and harsh -
it has high mountains like the alps, mountainous areas like black wood forest and rolling hills close to my home, and plains with a far horizons in the north - and many, many sights in between.
I do want to show you a bit of the variety of my country - how I do see it in color or black and white. Hope you enjoy

Abstract art is
about removing the recognizable subject from an image
and replace it with forms, colors, tones, harmonies, rhythm,
balance and imbalance.

After wandering around
several lakes of the alps
I do not wonder anymore
that one of main movements towards abstract art
resided at the Staffelsee in Bavaria the Blaue Reiter
as you just need to wait long enough
to see abstract art in the lake created by nature




Series: Structure & Clarity
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Removing the original colors
from an image reveals forms and structures
and their relationships in a decluttered
clarity, which allows us new insights about the world
surrounding us.

Brighten up

I had times
while shooting in the alps
where I nearly forgot to press the shutter as I was in awe by what I saw
a concert of light and shadows, played by clouds, mountains and snow...



Series: My Germany
-----------------
Germany is a diverse country, with many different landscapes, some beauty and bountiful, some barren and harsh -
it has high mountains like the alps, mountainous areas like black wood forest and rolling hills close to my home, and plains with a far horizons in the north - and many, many sights in between.
I do want to show you a bit of the variety of my country - how I do see it in color or black and white. Hope you enjoy

And thus spring
has creep into summer
marked by poppies swaying in the wind
and grass slowly getting golden
I love to see how the times of the year are changing



Series: In Search of Georgia O'keeffe
----------------------------------------------------------
Flowers have always fascinated me.
They short lived, faced harsh weather and are often overlooked.
They are enticing, decoying and for seductive - at least for bees ;-) and photographers.
Georgia O'Keeffe once expressed what I can't say any better

"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not."

Today is just an imagination...

when photography was young

Pollock on a griddle - or- the art of cleaning


The other day I was cleaning the kitchen
and cleanse the griddles with some scrubbing milk
as I just had the idea to emulate Jackson Pollock a bit
and created some dropping art with some very unusual
materials mix.
This is one of the results which is totally free in form.

Now is this art you might question..
I would answer this this quote from Wassily Kandinsky:

"The more freely abstract the form becomes, the purer, and also the more primitive it sounds. Therefore, in a composition in which corporeal elements are more or less superfluous, they can be more or less omitted and replaced by purely abstract forms, or by corporeal forms that have been completely abstracted.. .Here we are confronted by the question: Must we not then renounce the object altogether, throw it to the winds... more »

This is a question that naturally arises, the answer to which is at once indicated by an analysis of the concordance of the two elements of form (the objective and the abstract). Just as every word spoken (tree, sky, man) awakens an inner vibration, so too does every pictorially represented object. To deprive oneself of the possibility of this calling up vibrations would be to narrow one’s arsenal of expressive means. At least, that is how it is today. But apart from today’s answer, the above question receives the eternal answer to every question in art that begins with 'must.' There is no 'must' in art, which is forever free."

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.___

Dear all,

so what is our status now here at RE?
Some time ago this community has been one
of the most interesting, most active communities,
but it seems that we lost all a bit momentum.

I would love to learn whom of you do want to
get more active and maybe starte some interesting
collaboration or even?

I think we should not let die RE just so..
Please do let me know.

Heiko
