Lotus Carroll1,770,827This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: Multiplicity. What this means is create a self portrait where you appear in the image multiple times (2 or more, your choice). Get creative and think up an interesting scene you can use this effect on and then make your image. Here is where you enter your ONE Multiplicity 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* There are several different ways to go about achieving this effect. In camera, you can use a long exposure and move around. Alternately, you can use post processing to create multiples in an image. Photoshop is most widely considered in this type of editing, but other programs can also be used to achieve effect, such as Gimp. For those with no experience with creating "multiplicity" images with post processing, here are a few resources to help you get started: Photoshop Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/cyTpyZ Gimp Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/hChZ0Q Examples from Flickr: http://goo.gl/os2P65 Other Examples: http://goo.gl/DqlDtR 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.

Lotus Carroll1,770,827This 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!

Justin Spelbrink12,545It's been a few years since I had a photowalk at Natural Bridges for Halloween, so let's do it again! Yes, I know it's the day after, but I can't make it on a weekday ;) I'll try to bring a pumpkin or two, feel free to bring one too. Meet around 4 or so, Sunset is around 6:12PM. We can also check out the Monarchs and see how they are doing. Feel free to come earlier if you want. Look for a group of photographers/people with carved pumpkins on the beach ;) If folks have other ideas to check out earlier in the day, I am game, I will probably be at the coast all day checking things out. #photowalk  Halloween at Natural Bridges2014-11-01 16:00:006

Thomas Hawk7,681,952One of our favorite San Francisco photographers is very shortly to become one of our favorite London photographers.  Yes, Chris Chabot has joined the flock at Twitter and is moving to LONDON! To send Chris off in style, we will be having one last epic Chris Chabot photowalk -- and what better place for a photowalk with Chris than the annual Burning Man Decompression event. If you have never shot Decom before, you are in for a treat.  It's a visual smorgasbord of pure delight. We will meet at the *second* entrance, near the corner of 20th and Minnesota Streets at 2:30 pm sharp.  Bring your Canon or Nikon or iPhone or Android... or better yet, be like Chris and bring a Leica!   Whatever you shoot, come and hang out with some great SF photographers and help send Chris off in style.  All skill levels welcome. It's $15 to enter Decom.  More details on the event here:  http://goo.gl/XkJlgnIt's the Chris Chabot Farewell Decompression Photowalk!!!!2013-10-13 23:30:00127

Lotus Carroll1,770,827This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo. Just because you use a cell phone doesn't mean your self portrait has to be of the "facebook style" mobile or reflection variety. That little guy has a camera inside it, so treat it like one! Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait using only a cell phone to capture and process (no computer software post processing!). Your photo must have been captured this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST September 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. Please read all rules (scroll down).

It makes a huge difference! Is there junk in the room behind you? If yes, it's not a good place to shoot.

We are meeting at Vesuvio Cafe at  255 Columbus at 5:00PM. PLEASE BRING CASH IF YOU ARE GOING TO ORDER A DRINK! We will be there until a little after 6:15, when we will take off and walk the streets to get the great light. Afterwards, who knows...more drinking and of course more clicking!  So come on SF Bay Area Photogs. Let's welcome +Brian Matiash +Elia Locardi and +Naomi Locardi to SF! (BTW, this is the FIRST time the Locardis have been to SF, so let's get a great big turnout and show them how we do it.) Thanks +Chris Chabot for the awesome cover photo!  Event Organized By +Robyn Chau +Tony Eckersley and +Michael Bonocore  #DrinkAndClickSF   #Photography  Drink And Click SF - Blame The Monkey And #BMash Edition2013-03-27 17:00:0068

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 .

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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-05 16:07:314714429109

paula contreras2,511The BestBeen on G+ for about a year now and have met some of the most amazing people.  Photographers, Story Tellers, and now some of them friends.Well I don't usually do this, in fact other than sharing a single person at a time, I have never shared a circle.  High time I did and just wanted especially those just starting out on G+ to have a glimpse of some of the best.The best you say, yes the best.My circle count consists mostly of photographers and I am pretty picky about who I circle, but there are a couple of people in this list who are just awesome and appreciate photography so much that you will definitely get shared a lot if nothing else.  These people are also the ones that interact on G+ the most, so if you want content in your stream, than here ya go.So take a look, take the whole circle or just peruse through and find your best peopleShow less2013-06-10 20:31:3220057319

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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-05-14 10:37:29395806

Gailen Mapes28,308Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Other or Unknown" Camera R-Z - 14 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 1st.)I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to yourstre... more »

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.

congrats to everyone that kept up throughout the year (unlike me - trying to reboot my photography in 2015 now that I have a more sane life).

#StyleItMP14    Masterpiece Project Challenge #6: Toy Stories
Exhibit & End of Challenge (AND PROJECT) party

(To learn more about our Masterpiece Project please visit the following community: ‪https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103832206131235438171.)
----------
For our final challenge of the year Stylers we decided to do something festive and fun that would fit right in with the holiday season. This time we asked the stylers to work hard at PLAY! that’s right -- play with toys to create some outstanding Toy Photos!  Challengers had to meet both the thematic as well as the technical requirements of the challenge to finish. They had six weeks to meet all the following requirements including two biweekly studies. They were:

Theme: Toy Stories (Toy photography)
Tech: Tilt Shift 

And the studies were:
Toy Box (favorite toys)
Toy clones (Famous Photos with Toys)

Lets just say there were a lot of TOYS in their lives for the last month and a half.  They got to dig out their old toys… or buy some new... pose, stage, style and shoot! 
We asked them NOT to just take well lit  ‘product photography shots,’ but to bring these toys to life and imbue them with STORY.  We also asked that they learn and/or engage ‘tilt-shift’ technique to give an added dimension of realism to their toy photography. 

We saw legos, stuffed animals, board games, trains, dolls, super heroes, star wars figures, toy cars (even real cars). We saw toys of old that brought back fond memories as well as hot new toys on the market and so so much more.. And boy was it fantastic these past weeks and so much fun! 

Below in this album are the creative and clever results … Please please click through and see what happen with adults PLAY with toys photography style! We hope the results will delight you! You will see teddy bears strolling at sunset or poignantly ‘fishing’, rats cooking in the kitchen, board games with pieces so red and glossy you could eat them, pirate ships sailing the 7 seas, icy Hoth battles, and even toy invasions! 

Enjoy and congratulations Stylers! You did it! You finished the final challenge and finished the project! 

P.S. Note: We will share our final honors album for both THIS Challenge and those  from our music and animation challenge we did last summer next week, which is long overdue! Be there or be square!

For anyone interested in software, I've stubbed out a new Open Source project on GitHub at https://github.com/navicore/OeScript.

This is what I'll be spending time on while I take a few months break from my Silicon Valley startup job at Falkonry. That and taking pictures and riding my new motorcycle.

The Triumph dealership said I'd notice stuff on a bike that I wouldn't otherwise. I have neighbors with a full scale Jurassic Park: a full scale t-rex and a pterodactyl.  Angle is too low and wide or you'd see rex is much taller than the fence.

WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Curated by +Morkel Erasmus and +Mike Spinak       

It's Wildlife Wednesday. Here's an Anna's Hummingbird, from a great trip to the UCSC arboretum, with +Barry Blanchard, +Ed Sweeney, and +Swee Oh. I hope you enjoy it.

This was the very last photo to make it into my book, Growing Up Humming. Unlike all of the other photos, this one is sort of hidden in the book, Can you find it?    ;-)

Remember that every Wednesday is Wildlife Wednesday. Post your pictures of wildlife. Do a search and look at other people's pictures of wildlife. Any wild creature will do. Big or small. From bugs to birds. All you have to do is post a wildlife picture, and mark it with #WildlifeWednesday  

I hope to see a lot of your wildlife pictures. Show the wild animals you've encountered!

#StyleItMP14   Masterpiece Project Challenge #2: Birds & the Bees Gallery Exhibit Party
Bzzzzz….. Come in and look a little… CLOSER! 

(To learn more about our Masterpiece Project please visit the following community: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103832206131235438171. Our next challenge #3, starts NEXT Thursday)
--------------------------
Have you ever wanted to see what it’s like to live in a mini universe?  Work like an ant does ? Fly like a ladybug flies? Travel as slow as a snail or “feel” the sunrise and light the way a morning blossom does? Then come check out our latest   #StyleItMP14    (Style It! Masterpiece Project 2014)  final album share.

In this album our Style It crew were challenged to create one masterpiece shot based on the artistic/thematic and also include the tech component. They were:

Theme: The Birds & the Bees
Tech: Mother Nature Macros

Stylers had 6 weeks to work 2 studies (“mini” and flower power” ) and really work a macro lens and go out into nature to capture something special, pretty, extraordinary and/or creative from nature.  The goal was to explore close-up and macro photography and shoot anything that related to nature. They could get as creative as they wanted and interpret the theme anyway they wanted. They could play with scale, and even use post processing and compositing to create their masterpiece. 

Without further ado…Please enjoy our Birds & Bee’s finals album! The challengers worked very hard these last six weeks and came home with some wonderful work and magical glimpses into a tiny word!
