Lotus Carroll1,775,031This 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.

Art through the Aperture Photography (Paula)11,866There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.  Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please! Thank you @118149685580234696847  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.2nd Annual "You Are Beautiful"2015-02-22 04:00:00298

Lotus Carroll1,775,031This is the Event for our November Self Portrait Challenge: *Cinematic*. What this means is let your images be inspired by the look and feel of moving films, cinema, movies! Basically, they'll look like stills taken from a movie - drama, mystery, and action are all great genres to focus on. Location, lighting and angles will play key roles in your imagery, as well as your post processing technique for color, cropping, and more. Here is where you enter your ONE Cinematic Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST November 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. *Tips & Inspiration* Like most things, there are many ways to achieve this kind of look (just as there are many styles of cinema!), so find a style that suits you and work with it. This @111480916026711337375 article has some interesting information that you might enjoy: http://goo.gl/KhWR79   A good thing to remember when creating your image is that _movies tell stories_. As such, the story being told by your photo will have a huge impact on how "good" the finished product is - does your one image effectively pack the punch to tell a story? I think that the greatest cinematic images have great scene, lighting, angles, post processing (color, cropping, etc) and ALSO have been set-up such that they tell a story with impact. 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.

Allan Cabrera18,368Attention New York, New Jersey, Philadephia, Delaware, Maryland and Washington DC photograhers...... Named after the Lenni Lenape Indian word for slow-moving water, Pennypack Park stretches nine miles, following Pennypack Creek southeast as it runs from Montgomery Couty to the Delaware River. The park covers more than 1,300 acres. The landscape of this rambling city park covers rolling hills, open meadow and many miles of paved and unpaved trails that are great for hiking, biking, running and horseback riding. You’ll also find numerous historic buildings, including a working farm. I suggest going to the Pine Road entrance which is right across Fox Chase Farm. There's tons of parking. Wear your favorite hiking shoes. We will be hitting some single track and fire trails along the creek. Hydration pack and bottled water is also a must. I will be updating this event as we get close to the date. Autumn Photo Walk in the Woods2013-10-19 12:00:0027

We are asking our Google+ audience from around the world to grab your favorite camera on the evening of September 19 and snap your own unique sunset from your corner of the globe. We want to see all types of sunsets in a variety of settings; a city skyline, a beach resort, a beautiful countryside, a desert landscape, a dense forest. *Wherever you may be, please share/upload your sunset image with this event page on September 19.* You can also participate outside of this event page by submitting a public photo post and tagging with #sunsetday. A select number of our favorite photos will be shown on The Weather Channel and accompany a slideshow on weather.com. Other favorites will be posted and rotated through as the cover photo on both +The Weather Channel and the +Google+ Photos  Google+ page. Note: *Only photos uploaded and posted to the event page or associated with the hashtag #sunsetday on Sep 19 will be considered* We hosted two Hangouts On Air in preparation for Sunset Day. The first hangout focused on the meteorology behind sunsets including the reason behind the beautiful array of colors.  The second hangout concentrated on the art of sunset photography. Expert photographers well known to the Google+ community talked about their techniques in capturing the perfect sunset. Links to both HOA videos are posted below. *HANGOUT SCHEDULE* 1.

Lotus Carroll1,775,031This 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).

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!)

We will also discuss how he captured the amazing "The Icelandic Aurora" photo (shown in the event header) or seen on his Google+ stream at https://plus.google.com/112957708071337353347/posts/h7fr4W5Xcqc So tune in tonight, where @113455290791279442483 @110008116244179984313  @106719979779567208605 @100968313568314999910 @112548541403272545854 @107625658878407076244 and @100275369366064591159 recommended locations, and much more!  We will be displaying the feed for the tonight's hangout at 7:00PM Pacific standard time.

I'm not very superstitious ... but this sky was so definitely a great omen for a concert that I rate "Bloody Brilliant".
If ever you get a chance, do catch Track Dogs live. They will change your life... well... at least get you to gaze open mouthed, in total awe, at sheer musical genius!

If you don't want to see your pics misappropriated, high time you chime in with +Jasbir S. Randhawa against the cheap copy and paste tactics our "scientist" +Christophe Avon is indulging in. 

Portrait of an Image Thief +Christophe Avon
https://plus.google.com/101756210504597080402 

He's stolen my image, and those of thousands of others.
When he was found out, he blocked me.
My stolen image can still be seen at this link, since he is utterly shameless, and he doesn't have the grace or the decency to delete my stolen work:

A little late to the Red Super Moon party, but hey ... it doesn't cease to be beautiful!

The lunar eclipse on the 28th of September 2015, which also coincided with a Super Moon and a Red one at that! 
The first celestial even I've shot ... and oh... I do believe I'm in love!

There is something special about the sky... each day it has a new story to tell... all you have to do, it let your imagination go wild! 
A humble attempt to capture the hues, shapes and gorgeousness of the immense sky!

3,200 Kilometres, 300G of Photographs, 12 Cities,
messy arguments, wholesome laughter, bad jokes, not so bad jokes, nostalgia, new memories, tanned skin, tired legs, happy hearts!

Ironically, Highway to hell played on the radio as we set out on our road trip.... Mid of Sept... And it so definitely was the highway to hell!

The hullaballoo about Toros!

So, after months of procrastinating, I decided to walk the middle path. Not as chicken as the “encierro”, not as bloody as a “bull-fight”, but Oh so entertaining - “Los concursos de recortes” which literally translates to “the trimming competition”. 
It’s young future-hopeful matadores going out to face young bulls (around three years old). 
The one I attended had 20 participants, 4 rounds of 5 each, with each participant getting three turns (fresh bulls each round, duh!). The five finalists (one from each group and one from any) get another go and one is crowned winner.  “The One” of course, is the aspirant with the most panache, and the boldest moves. (a bit like real life, eh). After each round, the hopefuls would come out and kneel to the bull before it’s led away from the arena.

The hullaballoo about Toros!

So, after months of procrastinating, I decided to walk the middle path. Not as chicken as the “encierro”, not as bloody as a “bull-fight”, but Oh so entertaining - “Los concursos de recortes” which literally translates to “the trimming competition”. 
It’s young future-hopeful matadores going out to face young bulls (around three years old). 
The one I attended had 20 participants, 4 rounds of 5 each, with each participant getting three turns (fresh bulls each round, duh!). The five finalists (one from each group and one from any) get another go and one is crowned winner.  “The One” of course, is the aspirant with the most panache, and the boldest moves. (a bit like real life, eh). After each round, the hopefuls would come out and kneel to the bull before it’s led away from the arena. 
The crux of a good round is allowing the bull to get as close before side-stepping or hurling yourself over it. Posture, tactics to attract the bull, taking the bull on the moment it enters the ring, facing the bull head on, on your knees, with a fence at your back, a jump, a side-step, a flick of the hip, by how much did the horns miss you, running for cover once the trick was played out, staying and inciting the bull, every gesture, every Ole, every moment counts. 
This jury was out a long time for this spectacle and we ended with a Hamilton-esque contender and the underdog tying for first place, but damn ... the show those 20 lads put on!
