Trey Ratcliff8,888,169Not long ago, I released a video tutorial series about Landscape Photography at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/landscape-and-travel-photography-tutorial-new-zealand/ - I thought it would be fun to process a photo live on the air!

SmugMug47,158Have you ever wondered how to get your photos picked up by ad agencies? How does a photographer get their foot in the door? These are questions many of us have thought about before, since photography (and ads) are everywhere we look. Well, SmugMug Pro @114056084994793924628 helped answer some of those question during a recent SmugMug podcast (bit.ly/ZsDwsb). But, we found, that the interest in this subject is off the charts, and the follow up questions for Alan have been coming in fast and furious. So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout!  _Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST._ Have a question you would like us to ask Alan? Simply add it as a comment here, on this event. Alan will also do his best to respond to any questions we do not ask during the broadcast, right here in the Google+ event. So make sure to RSVP, and post your best question for Alan. We will even be giving away a year of SmugMug Portfolio to one lucky person who asks a question before the end of the live hangout.  And yes, this will be recorded to view on our YouTube channel.  #Photography #Advertising #Commercial #SmugMug #SmugMugProWhat Ad Agencies Want From You - Interested in Fashion or Commercial Photography?2013-06-12 03:00:0076

Trey Ratcliff8,888,169*Micro Four Thirds Cameras* - A special Hangout event!   *Trey's Variety Hour #56* - subscribe for free on www.YouTube.com/stuckincustoms  We'll have on @103519655975029093996 to talk A LOT about these cameras and what they're all about.  Even my producer for the show @114092052797730247075 is getting one of these cameras!  We're putting together a few other guests right now too...  I think "Micro Four Thirds" might just be the *worst name ever* for a class of cameras. But after you get over that hopelessly confusing fractional name, you may find this is a light, quick, mobile system that will fit your lifestyle.  No more carrying around giant iron and lenses to take good photos needed! #1 Question We Get:  How Can I Be on the Show!?!?!?   Answer:  Contact @114092052797730247075  - he is the gatekeeper for all-things.*Micro Four Thirds Cameras* - A special Hangout event!2012-10-23 04:00:00371

Scott Jarvie447,208*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 McGhee95,796Please 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

”AAARRRGH, Mateys!!”

It all started during their typical Saturday night entertainment: rummaging through the garbage behind the local beachfront pie house. That fateful night, the proprietor came out, waving his arms and yelled at them, “Get out of here you dirty pie rats!!” One of the gang turned to the leader and said, ”Did you hear that, Cappy? He thinks we’re pirates!” That started an idea in Cappy’s micro seagullbutt mind … and the rest … well, you get the picture.

It’s going to take them a while to get back anyway, since they stole the boat in the first place and have no clue about unfurling sails to make it go faster.
Usually, they just drift home.

For anyone who’s had it dawn on them by now, yes, the entire boat is the poop deck … ;o7

Many thanks to +Sassi Sassmannshausen for making the mast and rigging for me in CINEMA 4D, when my Photoshop coughed, sputtered and died during save on the first iteration and I needed an enticement to give it another go.

This is an awesome program that +Lauri Novak is doing for the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers ... don't miss out! (Go to Lauri's post to sign up ... your sign up will not be seen at any reshares of the post.)

The How Do You See? mentorship is ready for sign-ups!

This is a special program for those who are looking to add that little extra umph to their images by looking at the world around them in a different way through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

I will be taking on a limited number of people for a 6 week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I have been taking photos for 40ish years (you do the math). It’s a passion and one of the things that has remained consistent throughout is my ‘photographic eye’. One of the questions I get asked most often is “how did you see that”? In college, on a trip to Greece I was shooting a flower coming through a fence when one of my fellow travelers asked what I was shooting, my reply: Don’t you SEE that? The answer was no of course they didn’t. I also have a passion for helping others and I’m hoping through this mentorship program I can help you find your photographic eye, to see the world around you in a new and different way and to help you produce images that make your viewer see something in a new way as well.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a technical workshop. You can use any kind of camera - phone - tablet - point and shoot - DSLR and yes, even mirrorless ;). Editing will actually not be allowed for most of this program so editing skills are not needed either! YAY!

Selections will begin Wednesday, August 17th for the mentorship beginning Sunday, August 21st.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class 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 no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop.

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+LauriNovak/posts/HH6RX5PmeKo

(your application will not be seen at any reshares) and answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CS3
3) Trees, landscapes, waterfalls
4) To sell prints of my work
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this

The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is run by program directors +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford and +Alex Lapidus___This is an awesome program that +Lauri Novak is doing for the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers ... don't miss out!

You don't want to miss this mentorship! The last time +Lauri Novak did this mentorship, her sign up post was packed within hours ... :o). The sign ups will begin Friday, August 12th around 7:00am CST directly on Lauri Novak's profile, so set your reminders!!

Another Mentorship is on the way!!
How Do You See? 2nd time around!

Over the last 4 or so years I have been a member of several of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers programs both as a mentee and also as a helper/cheerleader. These programs are one of the reasons I’ve grown so much as a photographer and also met so many amazing people who I call friends.

It’s my turn to Pay It Forward! I will be leading my very own mentorship program based around one of the questions I have been asked the most over my photographic life; “How did you see that?”

Intrigued?

The sign ups will begin Friday, August 12th around 7:00am CST and end Tuesday, August 17th at 9:00pm CST right here on my profile and will explain a little more about what the program will be about!

The program will start Sunday, August 21st.

This is the 2nd time I'm offering this!

Fire & Ash

The fire nearby still blazes. It's now taken out 33,000 acres, but is only at 10% containment. I am not close enough to it to be threatened, but I am sad for the people who have lost their homes. The smoke cloud has covered hundreds of miles around over the past days and we still have ash everywhere.

Dance Like Nobody's Watching

"People like to talk
Because they don't know what to say
Running from the truth
Because the truth's too much to take
I keep raising glasses cause I only got today
I just keep moving
I just keep moving..."
Elli Goulding – Keep On Dancing – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mX_V9PvC89o

Or, if you prefer a more giggle-worthy video to light up your Sunday, or jumpstart your week ahead: Go for the Gentrys Keep On Dancing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeEs6e0FdwU ... hahaha ... I grinned all the way through that ... ;oD

The warehouse background is my own, but, hey, whatcha gonna do with a big open warehouse?! ... once you get it all edited, it just sort of sits there and murmurs "Now what?" at you repeatedly.

You never know ...
... it could be a #SeagullButtInDisguise .
On an interesting side note, my world is covered in ash. The sky was so dark this morning, I thought someone had slipped me the Red Pill last night and I'd woken up outside of the Matrix. There's a major fire about 20 miles away that has burned over 5500 acres over night. ... :o/

Clarity Comes With Simplicity.

"To inspire a singularity of focus, a challenge must be important to you and it must be something you feel you should do now in this moment. If it's trivial or not time-bound, you won't engage. So in selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration."

"People are remarkably bad at remembering long lists of goals. I learned this at a professional level when trying to get my high-performance coaching clients to stay on track; the longer their lists of to-dos and goals, the more overwhelmed and off-track they got. Clarity comes with simplicity."

~ Brendon Burchard

The Baroque Garden

On any given day you can see bunnies munching on the pristine lawn and parrot flocks flying overhead. This isn't the only thing you'll see, if you go to the The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. It contains many gardens over its 120 acres, including a Chinese Garden, Desert Garden, Japanese Garden, Australian Garden, Camellia Garden, Children's Garden, Conservatory, Herb Garden, Lily Pond, Jungle Garden, Palm Garden, Ranch Garden, Rose Garden, Shakespeare Garden and a Subtropical Garden. Find out more, here: http://www.huntington.org/

An interesting bit of trivia about the fountain at the end of this long expanse graced by statues on either side (most of which dates from the late 17th and early 18th centuries):

The 17th century, Istrian stone, Italian fountain had been brought to England in the early 18th-century and remained there until it was purchased by Henry Huntington in 1915. It was shipped from New York in 48 boxes that filled an entire railway car. Oddly enough, the fountain arrived without assembly instructions and with a few extra pieces. ... ;oD
