Lotus Carroll1,777,399This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: "Scanography." What this means is your image must be captured using a scanner of some sort. We can make beautiful art using all kinds of different tools - this should challenge you to use something a little different than what you usually turn to when making images, which is fun and informative to your creative process. :-) If you don't have a scanner of your own, ask a friend or use one at your workplace (with permission, no getting in trouble at your job) or public library. *Be careful* - _don't hurt yourself or damage the scanner!_ Get creative and have fun - these images can be very striking and have a great quality to them that lends itself to creative posing, styling, and processing. Here is where you enter your ONE "Scanography" 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* I've curated a gallery of really interesting scanography self-portraits that you can check out for inspiration. Check it out here: https://goo.gl/81S5TH If you'd like, you can see an album of my own scanography here: https://goo.gl/sXCiW8 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. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything.  *Prizes* ~1 Year @118357019708110162087 Business Account http://www.smugmug.com/features (or comped value on current account) ~$150 Gift Certificate (restrictions apply*) for @108289626026839048870 http://www.borrowlenses.com  ~@100266938567862344330 Digital Holster 20 https://goo.gl/OTECbM ~ @101789561086090624750 Gift Code in the amount of $42.95 http://www.capturingcouture.com  *Please circle these sponsors* - we love their products and services and it's great that they support our learning and growing together.

Lotus Carroll1,777,399This 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. The header for this Event was created by @112528921891703025888.  If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away!

Sam Breach1,717,110*As It Happened* Opening Night: 6-9p, Friday, August 8 Exhibition Dates: Aug 7 - Sep 7, 2014 This group exhibition of Bay Area photographers investigates themes that explore basic and complex images of mundane objects; inner feeling states and personal dialogs with self; the unique forms and shapes created by the interplay between natural elements and man-made structures; and everyday scenes and distinctive portraits of life in the Bay Area. The fine art photographers throw the spotlight on our daily experiences that are often omnipresent, necessary, and overlooked. Through their ongoing exploration, surprising and creative images are made conscious, allowing the artist and viewer to be more connected to the richness of life, experience and surroundings. Artists include: Sam Breach, Susanna Corcoran, Amber Crabbe, Christine Federici, John Fitzsimmons, RW Hawkins, Melvin Hoagland, josie Iselin, George Kaplan, Tim Losch, Vanessa Marsh, Pernilla Persson, Leo vanMunching, Charity Vargas, John Vias, Brett Walker, Shoshana Zambryski-Stachel http://www.garyfrancisfineart.com/as-it-happened.htmlAs it Happened2014-08-08 18:00:003

Jeff Smith61,995Welcome to The Selfy Sunday Project for June 30/13. *Theme: The Headshot* This theme is a take on the classic portraiture pose, "the head shot". For some this may me a mug shot but what I am looking for is not a typical head shot but one with some style and flare would be great. Thanks +Kelli Seeger Kim for the great event cover photo. Like always everyone is looking forward to some great Selfies.

Rumor has it the smoothest dude alive @101651096660571767183 will also be joining us from NYC and @105873814765821560444 will be up from Los Angeles.   What a great night for photography this will be.  Come on out for a great G+ Photography evening!A San Francisco Dinner/Photowalk with Gordon Laing2012-10-11 17:30:00136

Scott Jarvie444,882UPDATE: 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.

Michael Bonocore410,063Allright, Somehow @102476152658204495450 and @107430862196617669986 decided that since I like to drink (and click) so much, I should head the San Francisco chapter of   #DrinkAndClick . Well, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!! The second installment of   #DrinkAndClickSF  will be held next Thursday, June 28. Since we have some special Googlers in from out of town (@106015180204607019928   and @108147330019211554976 ) we will meeting at 5:30 PM at Red's Java House on the Embarcadero. What better way to show off our amazing city and spend a beautiful Thursday afternoon than under them SF iconic landmark, the Bay Bridge? From there, we will drink and click down the waterfront, eventually making our way towards AT&T Park. The Giants are hosting the Cincinnati Reds that evening, so there should be a lively atmosphere, with plenty of street photography to mix in with the usual Bay Bridge and Waterfront photos.  There will be free schwag, drink specials, photography talk, friendships being born, friendships being ended, and a plethora of fun photos that you will most likely regret in the morning. *You do NOT need to Drink to be a part of the #DrinkAndClick . Beer, Whiskey, or Water, the goal is to have fun with fellow photographers....so no pressure!* There will also be a photo contest in the week following the event in which we will give out AWESOME prizes to the best photo in each designated category. Categories to be announced shortly.  So drink, click, and be merry! *PLEASE RSVP VIA COMMENT IN THIS POST!*  I will add you to the   #DrinkAndClickSF circle to keep you in the loop of information regarding this adventure and future monthly #DrinkAndClickSF   #DrinkAndClick   #SanFrancisco   #PhotoWalk   #Photography   #BayArea     #California  Drink And Click SF!2012-06-28 17:30:0017

Gemini's are the best of Both Worlds
Because the new G+ no longer supports event photos, I am re-posting my contribution to this week's Self Portrait Sunday hosted by the inimitable +Lotus Carroll here, on my personal stream, as well as adding it to my new self portrait collection. Today I was playing with purposeful blurring thanks to +Alex Lapidus whose Mentorship Programme on the theme of photographic blurs, I am currently taking.

Behind the Scenes with Sam Breach

+Christina Lihani was asking me about how I created this image (top), so I quickly threw together a #BTS post showing the location, some #SOOC frames and the wonderful crew who helped me carry all my equipment a mile from the car to this spot which is the Albany Bulb in the Bay Area of California. Let me know if you have any more questions. Note: There is a second light without model behind the bunker being used as the kicker on the model's screen-right side.

It's #collectionCrushFriday and although, in all honestly, I wish I didn't have to share him with anyone and keep him all to myself, he totally deserves a wide, wide audience. +Christopher Germano is a good friend I made on G+. I respect him greatly and admire his artistry and his creativity. Even though we live in different cities, I am lucky to have met him in real life several times. I think we hit it off pretty well - we just seemed to click and I found Chris to be a person who I could simply sit and talk to for hours. When you see his intriguing works of art, you too will get a glimpse of what makes him so intriguing.

Put on Your Red Shoes and Dance the Blues
This was an example of practicing product photography. I was inspired by this line from my beloved David Bowie's Let's Dance. Mosts shots of shoes are static and therefore don't convey the spirit of what they are designed to do - which is facilitate movement. My goal to myself, therefore, was to make the shoes look like they were dancing. This was achieved through composition, throwing the tassels and zippers about, raising the heel and asking my other beloved (Frederic Schmidt) to create some CGI VFX for me. This was the result of our playing.

It's #CollectionCrushFriday which means it is time to introduce you all to the inimitable +Zoe Hong who is creating incredible educational youtube content around the subjects of Fashion Design and Illustration.
Although she is focused on fashion, she has lessons that will appeal to a far broader range of artful people. Add into the mix, Zoe's adorable no nonsense personality, you're in for a treat. Even you you have zero interest in fashion and go to work in your sweats, Zoe will soon have you wishing you were a fashion designer. She explains the process clearly and with great attention to detail and she's a lot of fun too. Don't be too jealous that I know her IRL. I've actually had a crush on her for several years...
Check out her two stellar G+ collections here:

#artvsartist

There is a meme doing the rounds, here and on instagram that encourages artists to post examples of their work with an image of themselves at the centre. So, I thought I would give it a go. Thanks to +Mark Rodriguez for putting this on my radar. The hashtag is a great way to find new people to follow. Check it out!

This is Olga. Several weeks ago she was up and at the beach at 6am, before sunrise to do something a little bit crazy. She's a trooper! So, the crazy shot isn't ready to unveil yet, but in the meantime here is one of the shots we took after she'd done the crazy part of the equation. Brownie points to anyone who can tell me where on my stream they might have seen Olga before.

#collectioncrushfriday
Have you heard about Collection Crush Friday? It's the idea of +Mark Rodriguez and is timely, because I know of a brand new collection I would like to share. Earlier today I asked +Levi Moore if he would put his inspiring morning posts into a collection and he went and did that right away. Thank you Levi! Whenever I catch one of Levi's morning posts in my stream I stop and read - because they set me up with a positive attitude to tackle the day ahead.
#Collectioncrushfriday is for sharing other people's' Collections that you love.

Before and After Post Processing: SPOT THE DIFFERENCE!

Look at the two images below and see if you can spot all the improvements I made in post processing. Please comment and tell me what differences you saw.
-Is there anything else you would have done that I didn't do?
-Is there something I did that you would have handled differently?
-Does anything about the changes I made surprise you?
If you been wondering what you need to do to step your imagery up a notch, paying attention to small details is one place to start.

Does rocking the French look help you attract Francophile women?

That's what today's model Aaron Cornejo was hoping when he posted this image up on instagram yesterday. Me? I'm sorted, I already have a real French guy!

Something I read earlier triggered a memory which caused me to track down this blog post I wrote nine years ago. I was honoured to be able to conduct this interview at the time with Pixar's Director of Photography which shed some light behind the scenes of lighting for an animated movie. On looking back over her words I appreciate them even more now that I better understand the art of Photography. What a gift this interview was!

I am finishing up my sharing of the Château Royal collection today with a bit of repeat. I have posted this picture previously, but not as it looked as a cover image. This is the first time I have been awarded the honour of a cover, so huge thanks to Surreal Beauty Magazine for choosing to feature it so prominently. This is Scarlet Nicholson at Le Château de Challain, France.

Today one of my images was featured on +Dark Beauty Magazine's social media networks. It's always a great honour because the selection process is tough to get through, they have a particular style and you need to both create a great photo and be a fit. They have over a million followers on Facebook and 290k on Instagram so it's a great way to get your work seen in places it's not normally viewed. Unlike their magazine where you need to enter several images in a set, their online share is well suited to one-of-a-kind images. I am sure many of my G+ friends have images that would be suitable for publication, especially some of the Darker portraits from the Scavenger Hunts or the Self Portrait challenges. Check it out: http://www.darkbeautymag.com/

Behind the Scenes with Sam Breach

+Rita Zietsma asked recently on a post of mine, how I achieved soft lighting on a picture I had posted. My general answer is that I always try to get my main light as close as possible to the subject and to diffuse it. My scarf images were taken last Summer with just two speedlights (one key, one for the background). I also had a white bounce card, positioned very close to the face on the opposite side to the key light to reflect some fill. For my key light I have a modifier which is a 26" Westcott Rapid Octabox (http://www.fjwestcott.com/the-rapid-box-26-octa). If you are starting out with speedlights and can only have one modifier, I wholeheartedly recommend this item (and no, they don't sponsor me). I wasted a lot of money on cheaper and ultimately far less useful modifiers before I found this one which is easy to use, easily portable, and... more »

I wasted a lot of money on cheaper and ultimately far less useful modifiers before I found this one which is easy to use, easily portable, and delivers really great results. After buying this, I never used another modifier on speedlight again (except for events where I need to be more portable). In the background I had a speedlight with a sample gel stuck over the light and pointing at a black painted canvas in the background for a subtle textured background.

Let me know if you have any questions.___
