Lotus Carroll1,778,376This 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 M1You 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 Jarvie446,788*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 McGhee95,688Please 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 12:00:00202

Rememberance Day

Just 100 years ago our grand- grand father fought
a war so devastating
that no words can describe
what they seen and experienced

100 years ago the Battle of Verdun was raging
French and English soldier sitting in trenches only meters away
from German soldier and both tried killing each other with everything
mankind has invented to this time to kill each other.

Some 20 year I visited the battlefield which is now forest of remembrance.
Still up today the soil is full of steel and bones .....

Enchanted forests II

are not around anymore in Germany,
but sometimes some can find places
which give an impression why so many
fairy tales of those are existing..



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 want showing you a bit of the variety of my country - how I do see it in color or black and white. Hope you enjoy

At the time +Alex Lapidus and had the idea to start
a new mentorship Beyond the blur we were not sure
if our concept - to confront our mentees with art movements of the last 150 years and make images/artworks inspired by those are movements - would work or not...

We are a bit proud that it worked.. and not even just a bit,
our mentees produced fantastic artworks in all of the styles
we confronted them with.

Here is +Carmen Mandich's Graduation Album.
Please enjoy it

Beyond The Blur Final PlusPost and Graduation Album

"Good artists copy, great artists steal" ~ Pablo Picasso

The Beyond The Blur mentorship has been an intensive training center practice for the great artistic heist! While studying many painters, we have been drawn by their visionary techniques. A copy is only a copy but taking that style a step further creates an original. Everyone in this mentorship has successfully placed their individual signature on photographic masterpieces. Our masters in crime +Alex Lapidus, +Heiko Mahr and +Linda Villers have successfully guiding us on this crafty path. You can't underestimate the skillful ability of these trained mentors and everyone in +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers for exposing the hidden talent in photographers of all levels.

Thank you all for these first eight weeks of fun coaching along with my incredible light fingered, quick thinking, ingenious companions in crime creation. I feel honored to have been able to learn at the hand of so many wonderful contemporary artists ....each and everyone of you!!! I look forward to collaborating in future adventures as we visit more museums around the world....looking, learning and living in the blurry world of photographic "faux-tastic" art!!!

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Leonardo da Vinci.


Series Energy & Process ― Lines of Light
________________________________________

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.

*Collection: My Germany - More can be found here: * https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/kv0ZX
--------------------------------------------
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 want showing you a bit of the variety of my country - how I do see it in color or black and white. Hope you enjoy___

Here in Germany there is a tradition of advent calendars.
Starting on the first of december the kids or adults open a "door" in an calendar, behind every door there a small present each day the 24th
In the old days is was just a small picture nowadays often a small chocolate or some toys like Lego or something different. Some could even buy calendars with 24 cans of beer.

My calendar of your will bring you music. Music which fits to the season or to Winter

I've heard about this baby boy
Who's come to earth to bring us joy
And I just want to sing this song to you
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
With every breath I'm singing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

A couple came to Bethlehem
Expecting child, they searched the inn
To find a place for You were coming soon
There was no room for them to stay
So in a manger filled with hay
God's only Son was born, oh Hallelujah
Hallelujah

The shepherds left their flocks by night
To see this baby wrapped in light
A host of angels led them all to You
It was just as the angels said
You'll find Him in a manger bed
Immanuel and Savior, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

A star shown bright up in the east
To Bethlehem, the wisemen three
Came many miles and journeyed long for You
And to the place at which You were
Their frankincense and gold and myrrh
They gave to You and cried out Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I know You came to rescue me
This baby boy would grow to be
A man and one day die for me and you
My sins would drive the nails in You
That rugged cross was my cross, too
Still every breath You drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah___

Washed away

Washed away,
carried in the stream of time
the lakes of memories are waiting

washed out
details fading in the oblivious sun
forever the bases are remaining

white-washed
One sheet layered on itself
To form the pillars of our lives

Washed away

The season is not as peacefully
as sometimes we wish it would be.
It is stuffed with activities and things that need to be done
and so we ran around . This song from Tajci expresses
this experience perfectly . Enjoy

“Perfection is achieved,
not when there is nothing more to add,
but when there is nothing left to take away.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery


Series Energy & Process ― Lines of Light
__________________________________________

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.

To the summit...

Top rock climbing
is an awesome experience..
to find routes
climbing up
as your first thought is ..
"there isn't a way"
while you stood
down...
The success lies in the chance

In some parts of germany
you can find amazing castles
which are still used today.

The Ehrenburg shown here
is in Coburg, the town orignally grown up.
It is build in Neo gothic style and you might
find that this building looks very similar to some
buildings in London, as Neogothic was the hip
architectural style of the early victorian age.
It might be that Ehrenburg which was build in 1810
been inspiring to the architect of the Westminster which was started to
build in 1839

Frozen beautyness
North to northeast
the compass needle shows frost
Days are getting shorter

dark solitude
shaft upon shaft
light appears brighter
the gloomier darkness grows

changing worlds
exhale to inhale
the barometer of hope
forecasts storms ahead

“I'm not an abstractionist. I'm not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I'm interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.”
― Mark Rothko ―

Series Energy & Process ― Fields of Color
------------------------------------------------------

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.

Summoning Astral Tree



What I love at G+ is that is not a social network
where some just post images, videos, poems and
other stuff,
but to really get in touch with people some would never
have get to known without it.
One of the artists I crossed my paths here is Sam Stapleton.

This image wouldn't exist without a series of images of him
called "Astral Tree" which can be find here:

Thanks a lot for the inspiration!
This image is to you and your great series +Sam Stapleton

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 want showing you a bit of the variety of my country - how I do see it in color or black and white. Hope you enjoy

Enchanted forests...

are not around anymore in Germany,
but sometimes some can find places
which give an impression why so many
fairy tales of those are existing..

Memories of Summer

where are those days
we felt liberated free-
fears, needs, yesterday
vanished under a distant wide horziont

where are those moments
we felt nothing matters-
elation, joy, present
veiled behind the gray dark clouds

are we prepared
forearmed against the storm-
faith, hope, morning
will be born from bright memories

As the gods and demigods

sometimes,
When I go to take pictures,
I sometimes stand
Breathless, caught,
As in a snow globe made of glass,
Whose beauty is revealed,
After turning it over

momentarily
stranded in myself
between light and shadow
touched, absorbed
In the shadow of the snowflakes
Of contrast and colors
cast away.

Rememberance Day

Just 100 years ago our grand- grand father fought
a war so devastating
that no words can describe
what they seen and experienced

100 years ago the Battle of Verdun was raging
French and English soldier sitting in trenches only meters away
from German soldier and both tried killing each other with everything
mankind has invented to this time to kill each other.

Some 20 year I visited the battlefield which is now forest of remembrance.
Still up today the soil is full of steel and bones .....

Present meets past III - Linda

Zur fröhlichen Erinnerung...
von Deiner Lieben Schwester
Linda.


Today friend make posts at facebook..
A century age friends made a post into an autograph book.
Time they are changing.


In the loose series Presence Meet Past I explore
how the invention of smart phones have changed our use
of media in less more than just 10 years.


As still lifes are a special kind of images and thus a kind of media,
I'll follow the idea how I can change still life "with" a smart phone.
(but also I shot some without ;-) ) and followed the idea a bit more down the road....

Hope you like it

Take a look at the horizon

"_Life is a game,
win or loosing all the same
you life and you die
just don't let it pass you by,
you have choices to make
you have chances to take,
you will laugh, you will sing and you will cry
but don't let a moment
don't let a single moment pass you by."_

I don't know
if there dark times ahead
but I do await times with drama and times of trouble.
The times are changing.
We have left the post-war time behind us forever.
We might have left the age of reason and entered a age of emotions
many of us don't believe facts offered in newspapers and TV stations
but believe what they find to be facts in their own circles.

But behind all there is still hope....

And just in the moment
when we thought
we did understood

the moment is gone

The Energy of Trees

Throughout my body of photographic work
you'll find recurring trees
- embeddeed in landscapes like here, or
- just twigs and leaves
- or in images which resembles impressionism and post-impressionism.

but it wasn't before last week that I understood that I shot
them as they have to seem a meaning for me, symbolizing something.
Thus even if I don't solved what trees to have a meaning for me fully,
I have some clues ...

But what I'm really intersted in is:
What does trees do mean for you?
