Ron Clifford2,973,201*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

Ron Clifford2,973,201On the show +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn   will share how she got started in astrophotography, explain her fabulous setup and show a few of her favourite deep sky images, (you don't want to miss this!). 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 Elliott2,875Come 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 Elliott2,875We 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 Jarvie446,489UPDATE: 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.

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.

Elephant Seal Pup - South Georgia
 
South Georgia is an unbelievable Sub Antarctic Island East of the bottom tip of Argentina.  IT is home to some of the world's most unique and abundant colonies of Albatross and Penguins. At this Landing there was is a colony of over 250 000 King penguins, along with these friendly and playful "Ellies"  I could spend my whole day with these amazing little (over 200 pounds) seals.
 
I will be going back as part of the Photography Symposium Team for a "South Georgia In Depth" adventure with One Ocean Expeditions in October!!

A new +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers!

This time it's all about FLOWERS

If you are interested in applying to be considered for this Free online community based photography program with photographer +Padma Inguva, then click to the original post and read through the post then apply right in that original post

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about photographing flowers as well as stretching your creative wings.

I will disable comments here so you are sure to head over to the original post here:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+PadmaInguva/posts/h2o65YfpPB6?cfem=1

#mentorship   #photography_mentorship  

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

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

=====================================

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

Elephant Seal Pup - South Georgia
 
South Georgia is an unbelievable Sub Antarctic Island East of the bottom tip of Argentina.  IT is home to some of the world's most unique and abundant colonies of Albatross and Penguins. At this Landing there was is a colony of over 250 000 King penguins, along with these friendly and playful "Ellies"  I could spend my whole day with these amazing little (over 200 pounds) seals.
 
I will be going back as part of the Photography Symposium Team for a "South Georgia In Depth" adventure with One Ocean Expeditions in October!!

Just Announced from +Alex Lapidus!

A New G+ Mentorship is about to begin!

IF you would love a highly social and really fun way to learn about blurs and unsharp photography, then this free program may be perfect for you!

Signup here for Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2016

This is a special program on the art and weird science of motion blurs, intentional camera movement, long exposures, and much more, offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I will be taking on a small group of people for a free eight week online mentorship which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. This is going to be huge fun, and a great learning experience!

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence. My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

My own photography has benefited enormously from mentorships and coaching offered by +Nathan Beaulne, +Robin Griggs Wood, +Darryl Van Gaal, +Sairam Sundaresan, +Eric Raeber, +Brian Wood-Koiwa, and others here on G+, and I’ve had the chance to assist with a number of additional programs and now to serve as a director of the overall Mentorship Program along with Robin and +Ron Clifford; I’m delighted to have the opportunity to offer my own favorite subject once again! To add to the fun, I've invited the people who participated in and assisted with the last two years' programs to help out this time around, so we'll have all of that fabulous experience in the group.

We’ll be covering a range of topics, including not just how to take certain kinds of images (and sometimes why), but also tools in post-processing and phone apps. My goal is to be able to offer the program to you regardless of the tools you use to capture (or process) images – DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, point & shoot cameras, or Apple or Android smartphones (1). You’ll need to be familiar with the manual operation of any camera, have at least a basic understanding of the Exposure Triangle, and have time to take at least 100-200 photos per week and perhaps many more (because practice with your hands will be key to some techniques; just knowing how won’t be enough). You’ll also need to spend quality time in a (private) community supporting, enjoying, learning from and teaching your fellow participants!

Selections will be announced on Monday, May 23, and the first lesson will be posted on Thursday, May 26. The program will run eight weeks, through July 21.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and publicly posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– at least a public photo post every three days, and more is better (the program 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 on G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You must have the time available to participate in this workshop.

To be considered for selection, please answer the following questions, on the main post only, here:
https://plus.google.com/+AlexLapidus/posts/4YW2Gezq8dQ
(your application will not be seen at any reshares). Please note that signups are not first-come, first-served, and comments will remain open for at least a few days, so please don’t worry if you’re not first in line.

1) Cameras (including smartphones) you expect to use in the program
2) Photo editing software and apps used most
3) Your goals for this mentorship
4) Amount of time you have available for participation


(1) There is at least one topic I may be unable to address if you’re using a point&shoot camera or smartphone alone (call it half of one of the eight weeks). The ideal combination would be DSLR or mirrorless plus a phone, and if you use only a P&S it needs to be capable of full manual shooting (shutter speed, aperture and ISO).___Just Announced from +Alex Lapidus!
