Lotus Carroll1,778,004This is the Event for our April Self Portrait Challenge: Personality! What is meant by this? It's time to show us some personality, baby. Capture a self portrait that conveys a lot of personality - an element of your true personality or some other one that you'd like to portray. When you submit your image, use the photo caption area to tell us what personality element you are portraying. Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "Personality!" theme. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST April 30th, 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. *Inspiration* @111718830236077991058, one of our many talented moderators in The Art of Self Portraiture Community, wrote a great tutorial on shooting self portraits - check it out here: http://goo.gl/xaPva8 He is also the contributor of our theme photo on this event. Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we'll be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/M7XTQ and ask away! We have categories for questions and discussion and are happy to help with anything.  *Prizes* @100424993750772730018 1 Year Awesome Account $150 Gift Certificate for @108289626026839048870 http://www.borrowlenses.com @100266938567862344330 City Walker 10 http://goo.gl/7b2js9 @101789561086090624750 Discontinued Strap http://www.capturingcouture.com/collections/the-sale-rack 1 Year of @118357019708110162087 Basic http://www.smugmug.com/photos/photo-sharing-features Please circle these sponsors - we love their products and services and it's great that they support our learning and growing together. Having them circled is a requirement to be a winner. :) There will be 5 winners. 1st place winner selects choice of 5 prizes. 2nd place selects choice of 4 remaining prizes. 3rd place selects choice of remaining 3 prizes. 4th place selects choice of remaining 2 prizes. 5th place receives the remaining prize. Winners must respond within 24 hours of being contacted or new winners will be chosen. At the end of the month, the Owners and Moderators of The Art of Self Portraiture Community will vote on the submissions and choose 1st, 2nd, & 3rd, 4th, & 5th place winners. Please note that this is subjective (art always is!) and so we'll be basing our votes purely on our own opinions. Everyone who enters a photo is already a winner, of course. :) *Please Remember These Rules:* *Enter Only Your Own Work *Enter Only ONE Photo *Only SELF PORTRAITS *Must adhere to this month's theme. *Photo Must Be Taken in April 2014 (EXIF data must reflect this) *Can Only Win Once Every 6 Months *Winners Must Respond Within 24 Hours of ContApril Self Portrait Challenge: Personality!2014-04-29 07:00:00131

The ‘Photographing Flowers’ mentorship is ready for sign-ups!

This is a special program on how to photograph flowers artistically through the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I will be taking on a handful of people for an 8 week on-line mentorship program which will include assignments, informative links, and informal yet informative and constructive discussions. Everyone must participate and it’s intended to be a safe and fun learning environment!. These are hands-on assignments. The first week is a greet and meet, get to know you bit, and the final week is for a final portfolio review. I will have weekly hangout sessions to discuss composition, any guidance and to keep the motivation going depending on the majority of the group's availability.

The ‘Photographing Flowers’ mentorship is ready for sign-ups!

This is a special program on how to photograph flowers artistically through the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I will be taking on a handful of people for an 8 week on-line mentorship program which will include assignments, informative links, and informal yet informative and constructive discussions. Everyone must participate and it’s intended to be a safe and fun learning environment!. These are hands-on assignments. The first week is a greet and meet, get to know you bit, and the final week is for a final portfolio review. I will have weekly hangout sessions to discuss composition, any guidance and to keep the motivation going depending on the majority of the group's availability.

I have been photographing flowers for a few years now with dedication and passion that comes from a lifelong interest in gardening. I have always been in love with the beauty of flowers filled with color and in some cases with intoxicating fragrance. Photographing flowers had led me to a journey of personal discovery and happiness. I have learned so much about myself during the umpteen hours working with flowers. I learned that I have a creative soul which was unseen before this journey. I have a newfound exuberance for life. I marvel at little things like raindrops on petals or the beautiful glow of the afternoon sun on glorious blooms while others just pass by.

My goal as a mentor is to get people to slow down, unite with natural world and absorb the beauty of flowers, create a little oasis in this rapid, constantly demanding stressful daily life. There is no better way to escape this running-around even for a little than through a lens. I want to set people on a path of inspiration, hope and joy and love that comes from appreciation of nature around us. My goal is for my mentees to look at flowers with a different perspective, observe, admire, associate and create art that lasts far longer than the flower does..

Duration: This is an eight Week- assignment based Mentorship Please Note that In consideration to the labor day weekend in US, a break will occur from 2nd September to 7th September.

Assignments are due on Monday of each week and a new one posted on Saturday morning of the previous week to give a head start for weekend warriors (which would give 9 days rather than 7 days to complete).

PLEASE NOTE: The work submitted to the Community must be current, in other words, you are to capture images based on the weekly assignment during that time period.

Selections will begin July 13th 2016 for the mentorship beginning July 21st, 2016.

PLEASE READ THIS: This is NOT a total technical Photography mentorship, NOT a Photoshop mentorship entirely. This is to help you take more remarkable photographs by increasing your understanding of basic principles.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting photographs regularly here on G+ no less than three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The workshop itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.)

• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.

• You have the time available to participate in this mentorship.
You have basic understanding of the camera you have and basic post processing skills

To be considered for selection, please comment to this main post only at https://plus.google.com/+PadmaInguva/posts/h2o65YfpPB6
(your application will not be seen at any reshares)

Answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Aspirations within photography
4) Amount of time you have available for participation
5) How long have you been doing photography?
6) Current job/profession

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CC
3) To sell prints of my work
4) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this
5) High School Math Teacher
6) Past 3 years

A plump of Bar-headed Geese (Anser indicus)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bar-headed_goose
The Bar-headed Goose is one of the world's highest-flying birds, having been heard flying across Mount Makalu – the fifth highest mountain on earth at 8,481 m (27,825 ft) – and apparently seen over Mount Everest – 8,848 m (29,029 ft) – although this is a second-hand report with no verification. This demanding migration has long puzzled physiologists and naturalists: "there must be a good explanation for why the birds fly to the extreme altitudes... particularly since there are passes through the Himalaya at lower altitudes, and which are used by other migrating bird species." In fact, bar-headed geese have never been directly tracked (using GPS or satellite logging technology) flying higher than 6,540 metres (21,460 ft), and it is now believed that they do take the highpasses ... more »

A plump of Bar-headed Geese (Anser indicus)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bar-headed_goose
The Bar-headed Goose is one of the world's highest-flying birds, having been heard flying across Mount Makalu – the fifth highest mountain on earth at 8,481 m (27,825 ft) – and apparently seen over Mount Everest – 8,848 m (29,029 ft) – although this is a second-hand report with no verification. This demanding migration has long puzzled physiologists and naturalists: "there must be a good explanation for why the birds fly to the extreme altitudes... particularly since there are passes through the Himalaya at lower altitudes, and which are used by other migrating bird species." In fact, bar-headed geese have never been directly tracked (using GPS or satellite logging technology) flying higher than 6,540 metres (21,460 ft), and it is now believed that they do take the high passes through the mountains. The challenging northward migration from lowland India to breed in the summer on the Tibetan Plateau is undertaken in stages, with the flight across the Himalaya (from sea-level) being undertaken non-stop in as little as seven hours. Surprisingly, despite predictable tail winds that blow up the Himalayas (in the same direction of travel as the geese), bar-headed geese spurn these winds, waiting for them to die down overnight, when they then undertake the greatest rates of climbing flight ever recorded for a bird, and sustain these climbs rates for hours on end, according to research published in 2011.

The 2011 study found the geese peaking at an altitude of around 6,400 m (21,000 ft). In a 2012 study that tagged 91 geese and tracked their migration routes, it was determined that the geese spent 95% of their time below 5,784 m (18,976 ft), choosing to take a longer route through the Himalayas in order to utilize lower-altitude valleys and passes. Only 10 of the tagged geese were ever recorded above this altitude, and only one exceeded 6,500 m (21,300 ft), reaching 7,290 m (23,920 ft). All but one of these high altitude flights were recorded at night, which along with the early morning, is the most common time of day for geese migration. The colder denser air during these times may be equivalent to an altitude hundreds of meters lower. It is suspected by the authors of these two studies that tales of the geese flying at 8,000 m (26,000 ft) are apocryphal.
