Ron Clifford2,959,671*What could be more EPIC than a 5 year anniversary Photowalk!* Let's meet at Nathan Phillips Square at 1pm on Saturday the 25th of June and do what we do best!! Chat and walk and joke and even take a few pictures. My Co-host for the event will be +Marjorie McDonald, while I'm travelling any questions or concerns you may have can be addressed to her or suggestions about things to see or places to eat and such....... I'm feeling rather Nostalgic so I'm all for revisiting a couple of the original spots but that makes for a lot of walking. By breaking it up into two walks, afternoon and evening, it lets people pick one or both portions of the walk. I would love to see Kensington and end on the Island but it's not carved in stone. One thing I won't do for this walk is go to the Distillery area and want to focus on the downtown area. =================================== Suggested Itinerary. Google map here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sTiw-OZ9TvA9MxvuIiwpG6ZzE5w&usp=sharing 1pm meet and gather at Nathan Phillips Square 1:30 walk to Kensington Market (Nathan Phillips Square is right next to the Financial District for those who would rather hang out there) 3:30 walk or bus or whatever to group eating place and be sitting eating by or before 5:00pm finish meeting and eating sometime before 6::00pm and head over to the island for some evening shooting and chance a good skyline shot. Catching the ferry on or before 7:00pm would be best to ensure we get some good locations for shooting the skyline and leave some room for goofing off before it's dark The Sunset is at 8:57 and the last Ferry from Centre Island is 11:45 though I will be leaving on an earlier ride. The Ferry's leaving the island at night are 9:45, 10:15, 11:00 and 11:45 ===================================== *_Important Links_* Island Ferry Schedule (see the "Centre Island Ferry") http://bit.ly/24zYTFy Google Map of suggested Route: Pending I will update this with a more accurate plan before I leave for a trip tomorrow evening June 9th #G+5Global #G+5GlobalTorontoGoogle Plus 5 Year Anniversary Photowalk - Toronto2016-06-25 13:00:0028

Bryan Weiss917Understanding your inner artist with  @108215644829092784557  Ron is very well known on Google +, one of the original @111508817579086020312    Masters, and is a local photographer and friend of the @112213628519636669933 community.   He is known for his artistic sense and ability to coach it out of anyone.   One of the hardest things as an artist is maintaining your confidence in yourself when you see so many other amazing artists also trying to make it in this already saturated market.   How do we separate ourselves and also make our art worthy of being among the other talent? Sometimes we need some help with keeping ourselves motivated, inspired, and above all else improving so this is what we will discuss on this weeks show.   Watch us LIVE at 9:30pm on Wednesday September 10th and join in the Q&A to ask your own questions while we're on the air!

Afterwards, Kerry-Ann get into an example of her workflow for processing a deep sky astro image from pre processing (image stacking) to final post processing in Photoshop...... I have got to see this. "After getting my first telescope at the age of 11 and then my first film camera as a teenager I was hooked on the concept of taking pictures of deep space. Ever since then I have strived to improve my skills in astrophotography and in the process have produced images that have won awards, been featured in calendars, magazines, books and online publications such as Sky News POW and NASA APOD. While enjoying this hobby, I have a full time career as a meteorologist and  I love life with my husband and two girls".

Rob Elliott2,8112013 Photo Adventure #2.  First thanks to all that came out to Niagara in January it was a good time, Niagara will happen again it was fun.  This time, something a little different. Sunnybrook Park in Toronto's north end is a beautiful park full of interesting areas including a Stables, Sport Fields, the Estates of Sunnybrook, and wooded trails. The combination of elements makes it ideal for a group to have a little portrait fun. (heck even the Sunnybrook hospital Helipad is near by if people want to make the MASH Dash.) The concept is simple we are going to take a slow walk around the park shooting each other. I know I'm not thrilled about my picture being taken either :)  Who better to work with then other photographers, and what better way to learn then to be on the side of the camera we dislike.  The goal of this walk is two fold, first as a way for people that aren't masters of light to get an idea of what we should be doing, be it with a disposable camera or a 1Dx, to get better images. Second to have some fun using our favourite gear, showing it off, all with the focus on us and not a specific destination or route and just having some fun. A few of us did something similar to this with @104723167398398004122 last year at @115393198299203687764's and it was a blast.  It is a free for all of course so we still will likely get a chance to ambush strangers, cricket players, equestrians etc. I will even look for a way to get a chance for someone to call security on @108215644829092784557   We are looking at May 11th, 2013 mid day, thinking 2pm Everyone is invited, doesn’t matter if you only have your cell phone or you have a Ranger system and a D800. Bring any gear you want, just remember you have to carry it, also be prepared to be co-oped as a VAL So come out a join me for some photo fun :) And feel to invite people :) This should also be pet friendly so feel free to bring you Dogs if you want something other then your self to be photographed ;)  Directions from the DVP http://goo.gl/maps/8Symh Directions from Subway (Eglinton Station - Yonge Line)  http://goo.gl/maps/5z33J (you can wait till the bus turns at Leslie too) 2013 Photo Adventure #2 - Sunnybrook2013-05-11 14:00:0015

Some of the things David will reveal are: - making practical use of the scariest dialogs in Photoshop. - Apply Image/Calculations and the Custom... filter, layer masks and blend modes    for tonal enhancement -the distortion filter that relies on secret math - the primary practical use of the Difference mode and some other cool tricks. David Biedny has been a technologist his entire life, from programming analog synthesizers in the seventies, to creating digital media in almost every deliverable format devised over the last 30 years.

You just bring _you._ If you've got a hot date you can show off your candle-lit night and treat your sweet to a live love song. If you're flying solo, I'm your wing-girl. Love is in the air! Hangout On Air that is ;)  *You are loved.* ❤ Share this invite with someone(s) you love!! XO, Daria _Ps. Find your global time zone start times here:_ http://bit.ly/V7kacp _Pps.

Rob Elliott2,811Come join us as we take a trip through Niagara Falls, Ontario. Please read after the Bold for dress and gear (nothing major just don't want anyone missing out)  We are going to meet up at about 11am *If everyone is ok with paying for parking then we can meet closer to the Skylon tower* ( http://goo.gl/maps/K5Skw ) (It's about $5-$10 for the day)  *If you want Free parking  then we will meet at the Niagara Falls City Museum on Ferry St.* These are driving directions to the parking lot from the 420 at the Stanley Exit. ( http://goo.gl/maps/LD94S ) I'm not driving so it makes no never mind to me.  Originally we were planning on doing Journey Behind the Falls and we will play Journey as a maybe. If the platform is open that it's a great deal and makes for amazing photos, if it's not.. then you have a foot long stone port hole to shoot through. (A blog with winter pictures http://goo.gl/b6Isq) We can make a decision when we get to Table Rock.  If we choose to pass we can head up the Skylon which is open till 9pm, and we can decided if we want to do so near sunset, during the day, or after dark.  (or we can do both as the cost for both is under $30) I've been careful not to over plan, and with a small group we should be ok with a more fluid structure, though I figure we will be at the Fallsview Casino area for Lunch, and at Clifton Hill for Dinner. We will head down Main St, to the Fallsview Casino area, head down to table rock, and from there either go out towards Duffrin Islands, or towards the Clifton Hill area.  After Dinner we will have the last weekend of the Festival of lights, the lit up Falls, and of course the Carnival like lights of Clifton Hill to end the evening off.  If there is a strong wind, or there wet weather we will do our best to not turn everyone into icicles. *Gear and Dress* Please dress warm and in layers with something water resistant, the mist can chill you very quickly if the wind shifts and you are near the falls.  Temperatures can change through out the day, so being able to strip off a layer if needed or toss one on is a good things. Though it's usually wind and temperature is Mild this time of year. Even I'll have gloves.  If you have a camera or lens that isn't weather sealed, you may consider getting rain gear of some sort for it. If you want to take it out while outside at Table Rock.  Certianly bring something to clean you lens, if the wind shifts you can get mist putting water droplets on your lens as far away as the top of Clifton Hill.  Tripods can be big and bulk and seen as rude by some, please bring them, but you may consider a Monopod. If we do Journey, Tripods can not be used, monopods are ok.  Beyond that, dress for fun.  *Cost* If we do any attractions (like Skylon or Journey or both)  expect to pay $30 total not including Meals. Meals should be fairly reasonable this time of year. Niagara Photo Adventuring.2013-01-27 17:00:0015

Rob Elliott2,811We are going to take a walk down a part of traditional Toronto, that was at one point the home of Toronto's wealthiest residences at the turn of the last century and home to some nice pieces of architecture and a few nice parks.  I'm posting this so that I can get a decent count on who will or may be coming.  We will be walking down from Sherbourne and Bloor Street (near the subway station) crossing over to Jarvis St and heading down to St Lawrence Market with a stop at the Allen Gardens Conservatory.  Below is a google map with the route.  http://goo.gl/maps/hWfSY So please feel free to join in the walk all are welcome, Cell phone or DSLR and take a nice walk, and what should be a fairly nice day. It's a nice short route, should take about an hour to walk at a comfortable pace, and I expect we should be at St Lawrence Market no later then 1pm. Toronto Jarvis St Photowalk2012-12-15 16:45:008

Scott Jarvie443,893UPDATE: it's online now: http://youtu.be/-DItFCAg4jM  *We like to call this a "PLUS ONE PARTY"* Because people submit links to their albums and we look through the pictures and _*we plus one the pictures we like*_ in the album. It's my way of giving quick feedback to people about which pictures really catch my attention out of their images. It's quick and yet helpful. Last time we looked at over 120 albums *LIVE PUBLIC HANGOUT* Yep it'll be a live public hangout again. Shorter and more awesome than last time. So if you LINK us an album make sure you know they will be on video and then on youtube. We're both really nice people and with people pictures we worry about commentary for fear they're related to you or something. But we may make commentary and you gotta be alright with that as well.  The video won't be edited when it goes onto youtube. I'm basically saying: _*The easily offended need not apply*_ *THEME = PEOPLE PICTURES* @109486822103622036238 and myself have a separate project going on where we're spending dozens of hours researching to find great photographers and create the most awesome list of "people shooters" https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962871525684315897/posts/UMBDiPKJqKa So therefore we've made the theme this time to People pictures as well because that's what mood we're in. If you already have an album like that share it. Or maybe put together another one in the next 24hrs that you'd like us to go through.  Professional work, weddings, families, kids, selfies, street candids, models etc *JOIN IN* This time we'll be linking the albums and having people join us as we go through the pictures... so you may be getting a lot more plus ones (eyeballs) than normal. *FAQ* We won't be looking at non-people pictures even if they're in the album. We'd rather not look at crazy large albums so try to keep them under 50 (but we can be a bit lenient) Please submit open/public albums specially since other people than myself will be wanting to view. Make sure you're following myself (@100962871525684315897 ) and @109486822103622036238  who'll be the moderators of the video. We're looking for someone awesome to help out on the show and provide interesting insights about the people who's work we're looking through so we can focus on the task at hand. *SHARE* Let your friends who photograph people know that it's a fun and easy opportunity. *VIEW* Hope to see you there during the live viewing saturday night at 9pm Mountain time We'll be using this Event as the chat log for the event. *ALBUMS* 1. +susan marinello - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/109486822103622036238/albums/5787749627481544897 2. +scott jarvie - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/100962871525684315897/albums/5628519010157340641 3. +Jason Jakober - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/111397628815301589258/albums/5790838803220260353 4. +Paul R.

The Natural Light Portrait

I LOVE natural light, and this is one of my favourite portraits to date. Black and white distill an image to its essential connection.

Sisters

The last couple of days I shared two Black and White portraits of these two beautiful people. In the days of film, having an image like this expose properly was nearly impossible, but with a great digital camera and industry leading dynamic range, I was able to maintain detail in the darkest and lightest areas of this image.

Beauty and Backlight

From a recent session, I did with this amazing lady, Jenn. She needed some brandings shots for her relationship coaching business and I couldn't help bit grab some more delicate natural light beauty portraits.

Also, I'm testing out a change in my privacy settings to allow only extended circles to comment in an effort to curtail the spammy comments of late.

Reindeer in the Mist

In a few hours I get to board the Akademik Ioffe on a Photography Symposium with One Ocean Expeditions around Svalbard in the Arctic to do that thing I can't help but do. What is that you ask??

I Capture beauty and character in the places I travel and the people I meet, and I teach others to do the same

ANNOUNCEMENT

The next round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt on G+ is here!!

Go to this post, find the link to the form, Say "I'm IN" it's the most fun you will have in a photography community ever!

You must go to the original post in the link and goto the form.

THIS IS THE OFFICIAL "20th" ROUND SIGN UP
for the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!

Don't know what that is?
It's an amazing game that has turned into so much more.
If you love photography, and you have a camera,
COME JOIN US!!

Simply type "I'M IN" in the comments & fill out the Google Form here: https://goo.gl/forms/i7rP35wOlXWBlrEF3

and the first 350 people to sign up will be entered.

After sign ups (after I get everyone organized & invited to the community) there will be 3 posts:
#1 post will be a PARTICIPATION POST
#2 post will be RULES & EXPECTATIONS
#3 post will be HOW THIS ALL WORKS
THEN I will be giving you an item list - 7 simple things to take pictures of.
This process should all happen by the end of my day/tonight - but to leave room/time for error/beta testing of the Google Forms sheet, it should make it much easier/quicker but since this is the first time we're trying it I'm being cautious!

It's up to you to make your picture stand out!!
It's so much fun!!
You will have 8 weeks to get the photos done.

You do NOT need to be a professional shooter.
You do NOT need a fancy camera.
You do NOT need to feel any hesitation on your skill level,
as this group of Scavengers is the most supportive group of people I have ever known.
This is just FOR FUN.
This will get YOU to use your camera in ways you might not do otherwise,
It's to push you to try new things,
learn new techniques,
join a group of like-minded people who will encourage you
and teach you sooo much!
Basically this gives you a fun excuse to take pictures you wouldn't have otherwise!

During the course of the round, you will make friends,
You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of the best community on G+.
You WILL be welcomed and surrounded by wonderful people
who WANT you to watch you succeed and surprise yourself!!

SO, if that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of...
All you have to do is type two simple little words, "*I'M IN*"
Fill out the attached Google Form and you will be registered.

IF YOU ARE SIGNING UP SOMEONE AS A PROXY (if someone has asked you to sign them up) do so on different comments. (don’t worry about the form if you are signing up as a proxy for someone)
And there NEEDS to be G+ account linked to that name.

Only ONE PERSON per comment, if there are more than one on a single comment, only the first person will be entered.
(This is the only way we can keep track of the 350 spots.)

PLEASE DO NOT comment on this post unless it is to sign up.
Any stray comments will be deleted.

PLEASE DO NOT sign up unless you actually want to participate,
not just because you see everyone else doing it.
And with that let the registration BEGIN!!

The example below was from our "knot" album last round.
Photos by +Rita Zietsma +Stephanie MacNeill +Lou McCorkle +Ariel K. Kasten +Mark Rodriguez +Steve Kalman +Jim Migliore +Paul Howard +Shari Seibold

So just type I'M IN, fill out the google form here: https://goo.gl/forms/i7rP35wOlXWBlrEF3
and you will be included.

After 350 comments are in comments will be disabled and work on entering everyone will begin. If you are within the first 350, you will be hearing back in the next 1-2 days (it may even be today!) and be invited to join the 20th Round Scavenger Community. Good luck!

Remote Places and Mystical Landscapes

I'm heading back to the Arctic with One Ocean Expeditions for another amazing Photo Symposium

What happens at a Photography Symposium?
Glad you asked. When you go on a Photography Symposium with One Ocean Expeditions you are on a Polar expedition with 4 professional photographers, each with a specialty in their field, who help you capture lifetime images and memories to treasure for generations! How awesome is that? We do shore landings, and zodiac cruising and just have a ton of wonderful photography opportunities.

ITS BEEN TOO LONG! (share this event please)

Lets Get together for an EPIC Toronto Photowalk. We have a couple of amazing visitors up from the US, Erin and Mira, and I thought it would be great to give them one of our classic photo walks starting at Nathan Phillips Square and a route that likely includes china town, Kensington and then down to Front Street and the CN Tower. Nothing is carved in stone, but for those who want, have dinner then over to the Island for some Skyline Photography!

A map is to follow

Best portrait of +Don Komarechka ever!

If personal branding photographs tell a story of the person and their unique character, then this is a true portrait of the man, the artist, the science guy. Taken during a live workshop as he explained light, camera sensors and the Bayer filter as it was being projected on the screen.

if you knew Don, you would agree

My student, and wonderful photographer, +Karen Migliaccio has just won a first place ribbon in a recent competition.

Great job and well deserved first place ribbon for your image Karen.

I was very pleased to have my print "Beach Reflections" chosen for a blue ribbon in our local camera club's monthly competition. The judge liked the colors and the composition/diagonal lines.

It's the first time I have been recognized for my photography. I have been working in the Arcanum for about two years, and the learning experience with Masters such as +Ron Clifford has been wonderful. I really enjoy the cohort environment and have benefitted greatly from peer interactions and feedback. I'm looking forward to my next steps in this photographic and artistic journey.

Hey, Just a few days left to sign up for this free G+ mentorship program, Camera Basics, Beyond Automatic

Do you want to grow beyond Auto and embrace the full power of your camera?

The comments are disabled as only responses to the original post below will be considered

Sign up here for the Camera Basics: Beyond Automatic 2017 mentorship!


►►► Read the instructions before you sign up! ◄◄◄

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you get to know your camera better and be able to move into Manual shooting mode. A group of mentors will be taking on a handful of people for a 8-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

We have assembled a very able group of quality, knowledgeable and caring photographers from the Google+ community who want to share their understanding and experience with you.


PLEASE NOTE: This is a camera BASICS workshop only, designed to help an individual move beyond shooting on auto or semi-automatic modes exclusively. It will cover how to use the various manual options for DSLR cameras and some "point and shoot" cameras that have a dedicated Manual mode. Do not apply for this workshop if your camera does not have a Manual mode.

Also, please be aware that this is an intensive mentorship. Each week will have set assignments, with very clear expectations. You will be shooting a lot. If you are not comfortable with a very guided and directed program, then this might not be the mentorship for you. This mentorship is not about developing your artistic vision. It is, however, very much about giving you the technical control of your camera needed to develop and realize your artistic vision. Advanced editing skills are not required, and for most of the mentorship you will be asked not to edit your photos.

Group size is LIMITED.

Signups will be open for several days, and are not first-come first-served. Selected participants will be notified by Thursday, Feb. 26th, and the first lesson post will be Thursday March 2nd. You will need to have the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers page circled to receive the private message, if you are selected.

░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░
▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW TO APPLY
▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– typically at least a couple of PUBLIC posts per week; more posting increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected.)
Posts to a community, even public community are not considered public posts in the sense of this application. Participants are those who regularly post in G+ in a variety of public posts, including posts to public collections.

• You must be interactive with others here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to your fellow participants. We learn from each other in this program.
• You must have the time available to participate in this workshop. You’ll be shooting a lot, and weekly assignments need to be completed on time. The program is designed so that each week builds on the lessons of the previous week. If you are going to be away in the middle of the mentorship, then it might be better to wait until the next offering.

(We use the same selection criteria that +Robin Griggs Wood uses for her "G+ Mentorship Art for Photographers Program", which you can read about here to see if you qualify for the BASICS mentorship: https://plus.google.com/b/105385385448524520257/105385385448524520257/posts/BT1Ei9qD2fi )

––
To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only!

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


1) Photography skill level or how long you've been shooting
2) Type of camera/s you currently shoot with that have Manual mode
3) Aspirations within photography
4) Current job or profession
5) Amount of time you have available for participation


EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Shooting for 1 year approx.
2) Canon EOS Rebel T3
3) To sell prints of my work
4) Full-time grocery store clerk
5) 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.

The Mentoring Team and Assistants.

Remembering a year ago I was experiencing a life-altering adventure in Antarctica aboard One Ocean Expeditions ship the Akedemik Ioffe. The scale here is hard to fathom, after the first few days of overcast, clouds and haze, the cloud ceiling lifted , and lifted, and lifted, revealing one of the most spectacular landscapes I have ever seen. Notice the bottom of this image is giant glaciers and now imagine the true scale of what you are seeing.

Direct real world advice for those wanting to "*make it* whatever that is for you

I love this from the blog and video...........

Create Proof Points. You need to create proof points that demonstrate you have the chops to do the work. If your current portfolio doesn’t represent your capability in a way that can garner the opportunities you’re looking for, you can create it by investing into personal projects that do. Use your own money, your own time, your resources to make it happen. Create a portfolio that shows the work that you want to be paid to do.
