Nature In Monochrome388What is Nature in Monochrome about ?Quite simply it's about showing that nature can be photographed in Monochrome (Black and White) and be interesting and creative and fun. This is a virtual photographic exhibition open for all Monochrome photographers who photograph nature.  The event is hosted by +Richard Pennells Lets see your creative side :-)Here are rules of entry (do read this before entering your photo) You can submit 1 photograph of nature in black and white It can be toned but no selective colour The photograph must be your own photograph not a reshare of another person's photographAny photograph I feel doesn't fit in with the guidelines will be removed from the gallery (there's more scroll down)Use your imagination and be creative. (whenever you can)Try and make your photograph uniqueYour nature photographs must not contain any people but animals, wildlife insects etc are okay.  Remember the emphasis is on nature, so your photograph reflect this in content.Buildings and Man-made structures or machinery should not feature heavily in your photographs as the focus should be more on the natureThink of the quality of the photograph you submit, choose wisely because this is your way of showcasing your photography.  Optional requirements  I encourage you write a description of your photograph in the comments and the reasons why you chose this particular subject, what interested you about it ?.  Naming the photograph could also be useful in engaging your viewers.  Also the other photographers I am sure would appreciate your words of encouragement and showing an interest so do browse the photographs submitted :-) and comment on their worksBy commenting on the photographers works you will motivate them.  Many of them put in a load of effort Oh and try and submit what you think is your best work as you have a single entryThe end time of the event is 23.00 hours on the calendar day I have entered, so  your entries must be submitted before then.Thanks :-)Nature In Monochrome2012-12-01 00:00:0094G+

Gorka Ortiz48,800I'd like to invite you all to this brand new Photography Contest. The rules are simple, you are kindly suggested to upload up to 3 pictures of your own. The pictures must show yourself in a reflection. No matter whether your reflection is shown through a mirror, a window, some water on the road or any surface that can reflect yourself. There is no need to be recognized in your picture, you can reflect any part of your body. Try to find funny surfaces or elements where you can be reflected and just have fun taking part! ;-)Who will be the winners? Ok, trying to be fair no matter how many followers, plusses or shares you have and also taking into account your kind suggestions,  I have decided to invite 2 or 3 photographers from my circles who I think they produce quality pictures to help me judge the best works. The contest will end the 4th of November this year 2012.I will create a circle of winners with the 10 best photographers in this contest and I will share it in my stream. (Sorry, I know is not much but is better than nothing I guess and there's nothing else I can offer! ;-)  ). Of course I am opened to any suggestion from you all to make the contest as fair as possible. ;-)Finally, the most important thing... have fun and enjoy taking your pictures and sharing them with us! ;-) Cheers!Photography Contest - My Reflection - By Gorka Ortiz.2012-10-04 19:00:00138G+
Steve Johnson33,963... At least for this event. The idea here is a simple one; Rules serve a useful purpose but they should be questioned, broken and ignored on occasion.Post photographs that break at least one photography rule (maximum of 3 photograhs) and note which rule they break in the comments. Here are some example rules that can be laid waste to:CompositionThe horizon a third from top or bottomLeft/right mirror symmetry is to be avoidedThe odd number ruleRule of thirdsTechnicalUse of on camera or undiffused flashWideangle for portraits (fortunately this one is becoming a thing of the past)EditingOversharpeningOver-saturating(Just about over-anything really). OtherShooting down at kids, pets or flowers.These are just a few examples off the top of my head -there are many, many more. If you can think of others please add them in the comments.One useful rule: This is all for fun so don't over think it :)Rules are for Fools2012-09-24 07:00:0034G+

Gailen Mapes58,964Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera T-Z  - 30 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-01-30 11:49:06199717CC G+

ShroomshotSaturday672Enjoy the all of the photos of all the people in this circle full of photographers who have shared their awesome shroomshots with #shroomshotsaturday.  If you have shared in the last month and have not been included in this circle, please let one of our curators, +Patti Colston  +Michael Albrecht +Anders Stedtlund or +Sabeena LoBello  know and we will be sure to include you in the next shared circle.Want to be included in the next circle?  Simply share your  fungi photos with us, tag +ShroomshotSaturday  #shroomshotsaturday  and all of the above curatorsWe LOVE shroomshots, but due to the increasing popularity of this theme, please only 1 photo per week.  It is becoming difficult to acknowledge and reshare all of the fabulous submissions that pour in all week long and this way,  during the seasons where shrooms are scarce, you will still have some to share :)Thank you for understanding and happy Shroomshooting :)2013-11-10 21:59:1625713512CC G+

Rusty Ferguson5,790The Rusty Ball of Photographers Edition #2If  you were notified then you are included in this shared circle.In this circle, you will find some very good photographers and some amateurs too. Please support these photographers by sharing this circle.If you are a included in this circle, please reshare publically. It will help your work to be found by others if everyone or even many will do that.If you are not a photographer, please share to increase the chance that you will be included in another circle.I attempt to visit the profile of each person in this circle to confirm they are in fact sharing photos on G+.  There are a few people in here to help with the distribution of the circle, some special friends that work with me on G+.Do you want to be in my balls? LOL Okay my circles. I just couldn’t resist. I do things a little different. I’m not trying to have the biggest circle share on G+ if I do, that’s great but it is not my goal.I add people to engagement circles based on pluses, comments and reshares.  I also consider profile completion. If you do all four, then you’ll likely be shared four times a week on most weeks. However, I take a random sample of post so people can’t just engage once and hope to be included later. If you both comment and reshare and plus, then you get included in all three circles. If you’re profile is completed and you do one or more of the above, you’ll also be included in the circle that only folks with completely profiles get into.I know its not as simple as some make it but then that’s my style. I love comments and love to get to know you so hope you’ll comment when you have something to say about what I post. I can’t get to know you from a plus. I have also started a community for sharing your own photos. Joining it will also increase your chance of being included as I count that as engagement. You can join that community here: http://goo.gl/i56uSNI have two websites that you might be interested in. Visiting is not required but comments on articles are included in engagement and very much appreciated.For Internet Marketing and Social Marketing visit: >>>>>>> http://www.tantalizingweb.com/blogFor my adventures in the Philippines, see >>>>>>>> http://www.excitingcebu.comHope you enjoy the photographers, adding this circle will get you more quality photographs from those that produce the content.Thanks,Rusty #therustyball   #rustyball   #circleshare   #sharedcircle  2013-08-14 14:47:29422965693CC G+

Someone asked me the other day why I invested in my fancy-schmancy Nikon Super Coolscan ED and Vuescan software rather than using the Epson V500 and software that I already owned. There are two answers.

1) I had an immediate need for very high resolution scans to make high quality prints for an exhibition. In real life testing, I found the scans from the Nikon were much sharper corner to corner than the Epson. 

2) I used to shoot a lot under less than ideal lighting, and my processing quality control was not as good as it got later. This meant that I had negatives that were outside the tonal range capabilities of the Epson. The Nikon, on the other hand, combined with Vuescan, could usually handle them without trouble.

The following image is from a stage production of Pantaglieze, and it was surprisingly difficult to work with. I shot it with a Pentax Spotmatic, a 50mm lens,... more »

+Kelly-Shane Fuller, I had what is probably that same 500mm f/8 lens (different brand, no 2X extender) for a year or so back in the '70s. Mostly, I used it to shoot people at the other end of the parking lot from the front window of the camera store I was managing at the time. This is not one of those shots.

There was a G+ event yesterday looking for B&W flowers. I posted one, and then I looked again and decided I liked another one better. Here are both. You decide.

Canon FTb, Brand-X 500 mirror lens, Tri-X.

Scanning Test: Epson V500 vs. Nikon Super Coolscan 4000ED.

I shot this image in December 1974. I believe I used a Canon FTbn with a Brand-X 500mm f/8 mirror lens. It is Tri-X at ASA (ISO) 400 that I developed in HC-110. 

More than a year ago I scanned this at 6400dpi (the highest possible setting) using my Epson Perfection V500 Photo flatbed scanner with Epson's 35mm negative carrier. I think I used Epson's software, but I may have had Vuescan by then.

Last week, I made my usual post-processing adjustments and cleanup in Photoshop, also using Topaz Adjust and Clarity filters. 

This evening, I rescanned the same negative at 4000dpi (the highest possible setting) on my Nikon Super Coolscan 4000ED using Vuescan, and then ran that file through the same post-processing regimen. I also used Vuescan to address some of this scanner's other features, such ast... more »

Harry the rescue dog jumped over this colorful snake about three feet from the door into the house from the garage. I did not get out the yardstick to measure it before I swept him out into the grass, but I estimate him to have been about eight inches long. If anyone can identify it, I would like to know what kind of critters are in the neighborhood.

This is Kendrah Butler, a composer and keyboard artist in Philadelphia, PA. I was shooting color with my Mamiya 645 for a CD cover, I shot 7-8 frames with my Nikon FM, 24mm Nikkor, and Ilford Delta 100.

I suppose I am exposing my B&W bias when I say I like this better than any of the color images from that day

There was fairly extensive post processing, including separating it into three layers (sky, Kendrah herself, and eveverything else) that were individually processed using Topaz's Adjust and Clarity filters, and finally Photoshop's skew tool to fix the perspective.

Kendrah Butler is a composer and keyboard artist in Philadelphia, PA. I shot this on the roof of the parking lot at The Gallery at Market East in Philadelphia, PA. 

We were there to shoot color images with my Mamiya 645 for a CD cover. I took a few late in the session with my Nikon FM with a  24mm Nikkor on Ilford Delta 100. The color stuff came out fine, but I like this better.

Ilford processed the film at their lab in San Clemente, CA, and did the original hi-res scans. They will send you their regular scans on a CD; you need to download their hi-res scans.

In post, I used Topaz's ReMask 4 (newest version just out a week or so ago) separate layers for the sky, for Kendrah herself, and another for everything else. Each layer was processed independently using Topaz's Adjust and Clarity filters. In addition, I used Photoshop's skew tool to fix thep... more »

In June I shot some portraits of my friend, Kendrah Butler, who is a composer and keyboard player. Her band is nVizion, and she also plays with Kimpedro's Nu-Gruv Network, both of which are killer jazz bands that play regularly around Philadelphia.

The portraits were for a new CD she is working on. The formal portraits were all shot in color with my Mamiya 645. Since I had the other bag with me, I pulled out the Nikon at the end and shot the rest of the Ilford Delta 100 that was already in the camera. By that time the sun was pretty low and was playing hide and seek (mostly hide) with the clouds.

Like any tool, HDR can be useful when applied with sensitivity. Usually, it has been applied with a sledgehammer.

Eastern State Penitentiary portfolio bonus image. That afternoon I shot about 80 B&W images on three rolls of film. At the end of the day, I reloaded with the only unshot film I had, which was Fujicolor Superia 200, and I shot seven frames, three inside the walls and four on the way back to the parking lot next door. This is the only color image that I thought interesting at all. This was definitely a B&W day.

These are the last of the black and white images from last year's Google+ visit to Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. The final posting will be in color, but since this is a B&W community it will be posted elsewhere. If you click here to see the individual images late tomorrow afternoon (Philadelphia time) you can see the color image, too.

I am in the process of finishing putting together a Blurb book that will contain almost all of these. Blurb now provides an ISBN number, which means you can distribute through Amazon as easily as through Blurb. Amazon does take a 15% cut, so you do make more money from Blurb sales than from Amazon, but Amazon's tail is longer. We shall see how it goes. I will notify people here when it happens.

Finally, one of the images from this portfolio has been accepted for the upcoming juried show at Gallery 14 in Hopewell, NJ. It will... more »

On April 27, 2013, we had a Google+ meetup at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. This Quaker-inspired penitentiary opened in 1829 and remained open until 1971. It is now open for visitors every day except some holidays.

This is a video of the finale last night (2014/06/13) of the concert by Kimpedro's Nu Gruv at the Community Education Center (CEC) at 3500 Lancaster Avenue in Philadelphia. This was part of the Leo Gadson produced Second Fridays concerts at CEC, which are held on the second Friday of every month.

These guys play straight ahead jazz with a funky background. I've seen them and their constituent parts a dozen or so times over the last few years and they are always excellent. 

Left to right, Kimpedro's Nu Gruv consists of Kimpedro Rodriquez on drums, James Cooper on bass, Kendrah Butler on keyboards, Mike Clay on reeds, and Jeremy Pope on trombone.

I shot this on my phone. There is a little bit of camera shimmy and the focus seems to go in and out a bit. It is a pretty good phone, but you try hand-holding any video camera still for fifteen minutes.

I recently rescanned the film I shot at the Google+ meetup at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. The new scans done on my Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED are sharper and have better tonal quality than the original scans done on my Epson  V500. I used Vuescan software to generate the scans. ost processing was in Photoshop with some use of Topaz's Adjust, Clarity, and Remask filters. 

I shot these with a Nikon FM, 24mm lens, on Kodak Tri-X and T-Max 100 film. There are currently 24 images in this portfolio, which I am posting two per day. We are now half way. At the very end of the day, I ran out of B&W film and loaded some Fujicolor Superia 200, which may yield one or two color shots that may get tacked onto the end.
