Scott Jarvie393,592UPDATE: 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 albumsLIVE PUBLIC HANGOUTYep 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 applyTHEME = PEOPLE PICTURES+Susan Marinello 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/UMBDiPKJqKaSo 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 etcJOIN INThis 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.FAQWe 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 (+Scott Jarvie ) and +Susan MarinelloAlbum Viewing Party - People Themed (A Jarvie Production)2012-09-24 05:00:0077

Scott Jarvie393,592POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURESIt'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 LINKIt'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.BENEFITWell 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 likeON AIRThis 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 GUESTBecause I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things I will have my good friend and great photographer +Susan Marinello 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.DIRECTIONS1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album3.  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 access5. Add +Scott Jarvie  +Susan Marinello to your circles6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites.IMPORTANTIt 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.DShare your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00144

Kelli Seeger Kim1,303,748It's +Karen Hutton 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But +Kerry Murphy and I couldn't wait any longer!)Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.  What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.  Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.  We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-)So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058

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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-03 13:41:2075001

Today was such a warm and wonderful day for a Winter's day.
It reminded me of Summer.
Sharing a summery quote and photo
“I love the quietude of misty dawn before the sober sun is up... The morning songs of birds awakening in blooming garden sets my soul gently... Aroma flowers with glistering of the dew... Deep full chest breath... Shy sunbeams flickering over the tops of wisdom whispering choir of waving trees... Serenity of mind... The crystal still lagoon reflecting soft lavender sailing clouds...I step in breeze realm, close eyes and fly with them over the miles, time and space... The serenading music fills my heart... Above the skies the joy of the refreshing winds, as our summer, recalls my being by your side and makes me feel the touch of you and gladness of your tranquil vibes. I smile...”

RGW's BTS Hunt Special
Bringing to life "The Miner 49er & His Darlin' Clementine"

I've been super busy and it's been a long while since I have had a chance to write one of my BTS posts. Thank you for hanging in there with me!

It was the most extreme privilege to have had this image, "The Miner 49er & His Darlin' Clementine", awarded 1st place honors from judges +Alan Shapiro and +Jacob Lucas and a 2nd place from +Derek Kind in +***** 2013 Summer edition in the category for Campfire. What a thrill! … and I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity from +Chrysta Rae … hugs to you all!

Background

I was limited to shooting most of what is in the images I created for the past Hunt with a non-dSLR (I used a Canon G12––essentially a "point & shoot"; fixed lens). It does have the capability of shooting in raw format (more information to work with) and in manual. However, almost everything I have done to create these images could be done with a "point & shoot" and Ps Elements (usually $99) or GIMP (free). I want to bring this message to some of you that may want it, there is no limit! Imagination and drive level the playing field here.

The making of "The Miner 49er & His Darlin' Clementine"

Getting the idea.

It is straightforward enough; the idea for this shot came about in seeking to overcome the liabilities of my small camera. "Small", in this instance, meaning "not fast"––shooting fire shots with my camera has always been a great disappointment to me. While, I do have the option to shoot manually, adjust ISO, etc., to work with low light, my nemesis with the G12 is digital noise. I did try shooting a real campfire for this category, but was very unhappy with the results. So, on to "Plan B" … ;o)

I decided to imply a campfire instead of having an actual fire in the shot––and that's where these two characters and their friends came into fruition. Initially, my idea was to simply have two people on a log and the implied firelight. The entire image evolved based around my extreme pleasure at making people smile or laugh. The phrase "wouldn't it be funny, if" pounced upon my mind repeatedly as the work evolved and elements of the image peppered their way throughout.


The Layers

It is good to base your ideas on a solid understanding of composition and the best ways to support your main focal point in your image. For this, I knew I wanted a background that would help to point to and frame my "main actors" in the scene. Since many campfires are enjoyed in the mountains, that's where I decided to place my characters. I went to our local mountains to shoot and searched the perfect spot to capture:

link––
https://plus.google.com/photos/103698889037599783920/albums/5941775356132709313/5941771604266567394?pid=5941771604266567394&oid=103698889037599783920

This view had just the right elements I was looking for. The sky between the crook of the far mountain acts as a pointer to the main characters and the upward rise on each side helps to frame them as well, leading the viewer's eye directly to the main part of the story.

I chose to take multiple exposures of this. The primary reason, and something to always consider when trying to get a bit more from a smaller camera, is the more you shoot of a given scene, the more image information you have in the end to work with. This makes for a higher quality image with a camera that typically delivers lower quality images from a single shot. Using multiple exposures, and blending or merging them together in post-work, you gain a fuller dynamic range of shadow and light in the final piece. As I've mentioned before, taking multiple shots, specifically of an unmoving subject, and merging them in post is also how I manage to eliminate the higher noise I get from the smaller sensor of my camera.

The mid- and foregrounds were shot in the same mountain area; a large log on the roadside. I pulled all of the background from the following shot, but left the trees in as more framing to my main characters. Later on, as I was putting the final composite together, I ended up removing the tree on the left to keep that lovely light in the left background.

link––
https://plus.google.com/photos/103698889037599783920/albums/5941775356132709313/5941774291460794274?pid=5941774291460794274&oid=103698889037599783920

The next layer was the main characters, the miner and his lady. This was shot in my cleared out living room. Using the back wall to help me in creating the mask later. This is me and my boyfriend (the morphing of my body for the plumpness seen in the final composite was done in Liquefy in Photoshop, but I will admit to having an entire sweater stuffed down my top there ... ;oD … Liquefy was also used to create more extreme alterations to noses and other features towards more comical looking characters.) 

A light with a blue gel is reflected off the ceiling for the moon light eventually needed for the final scene, and two lights (down quite low, like a campfire on the ground), one with a red gel and the other a yellow. A clear plastic bottle was placed in front of those to scatter them a bit (again, like the light of a campfire would be.)

The "models" are merely seated on the coffee table, which is covered in a red blanket (this is a bit of thinking ahead to the final composite for any color scatter that might occur from light bounce). Small boxes were placed underneath the feet area to get the right bend in the knees that would match how they would be seated on the log in the image referenced above. (Amazon boxes, size "A3", in case anyone wants a reference on the highly professional equipment that was used … ;o7)

link––
https://plus.google.com/photos/103698889037599783920/albums/5941775356132709313/5941771614877785890?pid=5941771614877785890&oid=103698889037599783920

The idea of the critters in the shot came partly from my "wouldn't it be funny, if" thoughts and secondarily from my wanting to add other "camp" and "fire" suggestions to my implied campfire scene: the "warmth" of stalwart and friendly companions (the old horse and the raccoon), and the "fire" of excitement should the bear decide to attack eventually … ;o).

I had the idea about the critters early on, with faint hope of finding the shots I needed. However, we did find a very small zoo out of town, with the bear and raccoon inside, and a petting corral outside with the horse. It was pure luck I suppose––however, I had set my mind on having them, so it was a mixture of luck and persistence.

As you can see, they were quite a bit of work to extract them from their "homes."

Final Notes

If you've made it this far, and looked through the linked images, you will have noticed the variability of color of all the images I used. A key thing to remember in creating a successful composite is pulling it all together with a tight color palette and color correction. As I mentioned in one of my earlier BTS posts, know the color wheel and about color harmonies and you will make more successful composites, as well as improve your general photography.

All compositing work should be supported by RESEARCH.  With research and sufficient observation you have all the basic visual information you need to pull off a successful image composite. The "Care & Feeding of Your Muse" articles I posted earlier gives you the base you may be looking for to create your masterpiece … :o)

snowmen decorate our home this time of year
Santa Claus: Don't cry, Karen, Frosty's not gone for good. You see, he was made out of Christmas snow and Christmas snow can never disappear completely. It sometimes goes away for almost a year at a time and takes the form of spring and summer rain. But you can bet your boots that when a good, jolly December wind kisses it, it will turn into Christmas snow all over again.

Gratitude turns what we have into enough ~ Melody Beattie
The grateful hearts and hungry tummy's at our home today had turkey smiles.
Fatboy is a carrot lover and really enjoyed his side of special cooked carrots with his turkey. 
Baxter's turkey had extra gravy and the L-Tryptophan is working, he is sound asleep.
Missydoo who usually waits to eat after her food is very cold, today gobbled her turkey down warm and licked her lips.
Mitchell is sound asleep and said a wonderful blessing.
I was thrilled with the chocolate pecan pie and the thankful smooch I got for making everyone's tummy happy.
Hope you have a full tummy and a warm place today and are thankful for the little corner of your world that is enough.

Last year about this time I took this photo down town St. Charles.
Driving down the street today I saw him coming out of a store and he still had that pipe.
Thought I would re-share him and wish you the best of the Season!

Oh I have been gone a long time it seems!

If you are sharing with Blastfromthepast or Windowwednesday that I help curate I think it has been 2 weeks since I given you some love and attention.
I am so sorry. 
I am working on some photos for friends and feel bad posting when I don't have their work done yet.
I will come back soon and miss you!!!
Between work and real life ...you know.
Hugs.

If you have kept track of my 5 days I have missed almost a week between day 2 and 3.
My time to create is very limited lately.
These lovely tulips were a gift and I loved them in my window.
Hope your day is full of things you love!

involves tinting the highlights in a black and white image one color and the shadows another color.

her garden
The neighbor lady still has floral blooms and big green leaves in her backyard garden.
Earlier in the year the blooms shared the garden with tomatoes and dill and a mix of things I have no name for.
These flowers are the last remaining color mixed with dry memories of the plants that once grew with them.
 I had to snap a photo from far away and felt the urge to paint them  for Sketchgurusaturday.

today
Today I got to take a walk in the sun with my husband.
We saw these pine cones, little red crab apples and crunchy leaves.
He was chatty about the used riding lawn mower he bought.
Children across the street were playing kick ball and little birds swooped and chirped in the trees.
The recent rains made the last of the grasses tall and the soil wet.
Walking and listening to the sounds, enjoying a bit of natures fall beauty was a wonderful part of my day.
Hope your day was filled with good things too!

morning war
Pulling out of the driveway I had to stop and gaze across the yard.
The rains from the days before soaked the ground.
Sunshine danced across the blades.
My brain fought a silent war to keep backing out, get to work.
OR 
Jump out and sprawl across the grass with my camera.
The right side of my brain won the war but my left side smiled at causing such a battle.

Photography is such a glorious memory keeper.
Resharing a photo I took about this time last year of a girl I saw in the park. 
Looking at this now I realize my dogs have that same blanket.

#fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  day 2
“By early evening all the sky to the north had darkened and the spare terrain they trod had turned a neuter gray as far as the eye could see. They grouped in the road at the top of a rise and looked back. The storm front towered above them and the wind was cool on their sweating faces. They slumped bleary-eyed.”
― Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses

We have had a week of rain and dark skies here in Missouri.
This seemed to be a good photo for the moody week.
 Hope you have your shoes laced up and your coat zipped. :)

I didn't have much time today to start my challenge so I took a quick cell phone shot when I got home and added some pumpkins and a frame.
I know I need to get the camera out and get this challenge going.
Thank you for the friends that mentioned me in the challenge !
Happy October !
Ha ! I just noticed the pink on my cheeks...I played around with making my face scary with effects and deleted them. Looks like I missed deleting some...oh well, ha!

"We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!”
― Humbert Wolfe

Out the kitchen windows I can see the bright yellow topped plants over my neighbors fence.
The squirrels are scampering about and the day is beautiful.

I had to get my camera out and grabbed the 300 mm lens so I could catch these yellow topped plants from far away.
The dogs played a bit and tried some squirrel chasing.
Beautiful day today and lovely October eve.

Quiet house this morning except for the drumming sound of traffic passing by outside and the low sound of dogs in deep slumber.
Usually I am at work by now and have wondered what the little foursome of Mitch and the dogs were doing.
Mystery solved...snoozing away seems to be the morning thing.
I have today off and started with opening the blinds, making some coffee and listening to the quietness of the day.
Wishing you a wonderful day today!

sunflower trail
"Sometimes I followed the sunflower-bordered roads. 
I was told that the sunflowers were introduced into that country by the Mormons; that at the time of the persecution when they left Missouri and struck out into the wilderness to find a place where they could worship God in their own way, the members of the first exploring party, crossing the plains to Utah, scattered sunflower seeds as they went. The next summer, when the long trains of wagons came through with all the women and children, they had a sunflower trail to follow.
 I believe that botanists do not confirm the story but, insist that the sunflower was native to those plains.
Nevertheless, that legend has stuck in my mind, and sunflower-bordered roads always seem to me the roads to freedom.”
― Willa Cather, My Ántonia
