paula contreras10,415Open from February 20th till April 5th 2014 Please direct all your invite answers to the other link https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cvb471f7f2gos499j972j5dr35s There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want. http://youtu.be/VYmFpYdwqLsYou are Beautiful2014-02-21 04:00:0020

Lotus Carroll1,771,653This is the Event for our January Self Portrait Challenge: New Beginnings! What is meant by this? It's up to you to interpret. I know that many of us think about what we want the next year to be like (even if you don't make resolutions) and this seems like a great way to express what's been on our minds in that sense. You can interpret this way, or any other way that makes sense to you. We're looking forward to what your creative minds will come up with! Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "New Beginnings" theme. Your photo must have been captured any time during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST January 31st, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. You have about two weeks left to complete this task if you don't already have a qualifying photo that you took this month - you can do it! Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Inspiration* Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we'll 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/M7XTQ and ask away! We have categories for questions and discussion and are happy to help with anything.  *Prizes* $150 Gift Certificate for @108289626026839048870 http://www.borrowlenses.com 1 Year Awesome Account at @100424993750772730018 http://goo.gl/CCrBlS  @100266938567862344330 Mirrorless Mover 10 Bag http://goo.gl/Z4h0IN Please circle these sponsors - they make these prizes possible, so having them circled is a requirement to be a winner. There will be 3 winners. 1st place winner selects choice of 3 prizes. 2nd place selects choice of 2 remaining prizes. 3rd place receives the remaining prize. Winners must respond within 24 hours of being contacted or new winners will be chosen. At the end of the month, the Owners and Moderators of The Art of Self Portraiture Community will vote on the submissions and choose 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place winners. Please note that this is subjective (art always is!) and so we'll be basing our votes purely on our own opinions. Everyone who enters a photo is already a winner, of course. :) Please Remember These Rules: *Enter Only Your Own Work *Enter Only ONE Photo *Only SELF PORTRAITS *Must adhere to this month's theme. *Photo Must Be Taken in January 2014 *Can Only Win Once Every 6 Months *Winners Must Respond Within 24 Hours of Contact *Circle Our Prize Sponsors *No Trickery or Spamming *We Reserve The Right To Remove Entries for Misconduct *Anything Outside Guidelines/Rules Disqualifies A ParticipantJanuary Self Portrait Challenge: New Beginnings2014-01-01 07:00:00137

Lotus Carroll1,771,653This 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!

HACK THIS PHOTO4,456*Hack This Photo* _Our Photo.  Your Spin._ *(Open for the entire week)* Welcome to a special edition of the Friday Night @116361882895448900841!  It's hard to believe, but as the end of the year approaches, so does the end of the first year of #hackthisphoto . It was on January 10th when @116029916334296947844  posted the first picture for you all to have your way with, and since then it's been a non-stop blast of great fun and great art. There are some changes coming in 2013, but for this week, we thought we'd take a look back to the beginning. We're going to offer up two shots for your hacking pleasure, and in fact they are the first two shots used for the theme back in January. The pier by moonlight shot was the very first, supplied by the hack queen herself, @116029916334296947844, and the cabin at sunset was supplied by @111112809838472063992.  We want to thank all of you SO much for your participation and friendship over the last year, and we want nothing more than for all of you to have a wonderful holiday season, and for the next year to be full of peace, joy, and happiness. @116361882895448900841  The photo editing game where you take our photo and twist it, turn it, crop it, chop it, texturize it, pixelize it, make it your own.  Then post it for all of G+ to see! Everyone is welcome to play – no formal training, expensive software or previous experience is required to join us.  Use an app on your phone, the G+ photo editor, GIMP, Lightroom, CS6 – it’s up to you. To Play: Click on the link below to open our photograph.  Save it.  Open it the editor of your choice, and have at it! When you're done, save your work. Open this Event.  Click on the magic red button at the top of the window to add your photo to our Event album.  After your photo has been added, please open the caption and insert the #hackthisphoto hashtag.    Then click on the slideshow button at the top of the page to review the other entries and leave love notes and +’s behind.   You have a full week to play with this shot and submit as many entries as you like.   We are so grateful to everyone who joins us – whether you play, plus, comment or share.  This is such a source of joy for all of us.   Please drop us a line if you have any questions.  We are always open to feedback and suggestions.

Gailen Mapes85,149Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-R - 7 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-04-07 10:45:05182000

Matt Evans6,231The Richie Benaud Circle (3)Hey legends, this is my 3rd updated share of my Richie Benaud circle, which is filled with everyone who has left a comment on one of my images. I usually share it every 3 months or so.Welcome to all my new commenters :) I'll be sharing this once again after the 12th month (June) then I'll be resetting and starting all over again.It's easy to just click a button to + 1, but it takes a little more effort to comment (which is ironic since I don't comment on much). But I like to share this circle just to say a huge thanks to everyone who has found the time to flaunt those fingers across those keys. Really appreciate it. Stay awesome everybody :)#circleshare   #circles   #circleoftheday   #circleoflegends   #richiebenaud2015-03-23 06:08:01340000

Gailen Mapes81,130Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-R - 7 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation2015-03-07 12:39:29186001

Charles Payet6,779A VERY Rare Shared Circle: My Absolute Favorite PlussersAs many of those whom I know on Google+ are aware, it can be kind of daunting at times to keep up with a G+ Stream when you follow several thousand people.  Thanks to the wonderful education by people in the +Plus Your Business! Academy last year, I did learn a lot more on how to manage my Stream, but I still need to work more on refining my Circles.  Still, I've made some slight progress.  Obviously, +Circloscope is a very helpful tool for this.But for whatever reason, I decided to Share this Circle.  This is my ONLY Notification Circle, to avoid Notification Overload.  :-)  Some of them are quite prolific posters, some are moderate, and some only post rarely.  They generally fall into the following categories:(1) Social media(2) Deep thinkers(3) Science(4) Photography(5) Curmudgeon (had to include this category specifically for Vincent LOL  But he's my kind of curmudgeon.)There are obviously a LOT more people worth following on G+, and by no means do I intend any slight to anyone not included.  I had to be VERY picky about this list.+Chrysta Rae +Sanjiv Manifest +Vincent Messina +Lauri Novak +Craig Szymanski +Gina Fiedel +Kalebra Kelby +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales +Mark Metternich +Don Komarechka +Athena Carey +Mark Bruce +2015-02-22 14:31:3519000

Gailen Mapes78,490Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera N-Q - 9 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 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. 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-02-09 14:47:05117014

Excited & Nervous to have been chosen to participate in the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , The “Single Frame: Introduction to Cinematic Storytelling”  with +Morgana Creely  which is a program introducing some of the compositional elements of visual storytelling.

Oh so many shiny things and squirrels in the first week! I’m saving every bit of information and link I can as I know I’m missing being able to sit down and actually watch a ton of the movies we’ve been given. 

I’ve always felt like when I watch a movie I see it in ‘shots’ and am always in awe of the ones that have amazing cinematography, the moody and emotion evoking visuals.  We’ve been given tons of resources, genres, directors, styles and examples of such to study and just get an idea of what is out there.  Some were familiar, othersnot so much.  It’s a wh... more »

Plus Post - Week 1 - Single Frame

Excited & Nervous to have been chosen to participate in the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , The “Single Frame: Introduction to Cinematic Storytelling”  with +Morgana Creely  which is a program introducing some of the compositional elements of visual storytelling.

Oh so many shiny things and squirrels in the first week! I’m saving every bit of information and link I can as I know I’m missing being able to sit down and actually watch a ton of the movies we’ve been given. 

I’ve always felt like when I watch a movie I see it in ‘shots’ and am always in awe of the ones that have amazing cinematography, the moody and emotion evoking visuals.  We’ve been given tons of resources, genres, directors, styles and examples of such to study and just get an idea of what is out there.  Some were familiar, others not so much.  It’s a whole new world!  

We were asked to go out and find some examples of storytelling images.  I went out looking in places and at photographers I did not know because I could very easily taken the easy way out and shared images from several I follow here on G+, but looking outside of the familiar was a great way to discover incredible artwork from new photographers (new to me!)   Finding an image that works and explaining why and finding one that doesn’t work and explaining that is something I still, even after several mentorship programs, find hard to do.  I know in my head the things that make an image work but trying to explain it doesn’t come easy. Trying to explain what doesn’t work is even harder!  This assignment made me slow down and actually think about the elements of each image and what their purpose was in the overall story of the image.  This is something I’ve been working on in my own images for quite some time!  

I can’t wait to continue in this program as I know it’s going to push me outside of my comfort zone and we all know what that means right?  Growth!!  

So - on to shake things up a bit  :)___

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

Got Me Out of My Seat

This is what got me out of my office chair and out shooting today.   I kept watching out the window and not accomplishing any work!  So I decided that I just needed to go out and shoot and be outside.  

This is the first shot I took today.

The first thunderstorm of the year - it's far more distracting to me than anything else and I'm not getting anything done.  Window open, just listening to the rain and thunder.  I can always work later/tomorrow/saturday.... LOL

Ok - this is going to sound like a bit of a commercial but you'll appreciate at the very least the company photo!!  I mean - look at this!!

First of all - the 1st time I received this catalogue in the mail I was sold! Ha.  Just because of their photo!!  It's just so awesome!!

Second of all I happen to love handmade soap (Theirs is called Zum Bar).  Up until now I hadn't actually ordered anything.  There was a sale so what the heck!!

I got them today - oooo they smell so good, excuse me while I go take a shower!! LOL

Really I just wanted to share this photo again, because there was a catalog in the box and I opened it up to this and I love it! :)  They offer all sorts of stuff I may have to try (you can also find it at some local stores which is cool.)   It just seems like a really fun & cool company - their FBposts ... more »

There is still time to apply for this +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers it's gonna be a good one!!!

READ and sign up on original post!

My mentorship on Lighting with Intent is ready for sign-ups!

►►► Read the instructions before you sign up! ◄◄◄

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you understand light and make use of it to add emotion to your photography rather than have it constrain your creativity. You will learn and experiment with off-camera flash, light modifiers, combine flash with ambient light, and play with a host of other lighting techniques.

I will be taking on a handful of people for a nine week online mentorship program which includes lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time.

My passion for photography (or more precisely conceptual photography) has burgeoned over twenty years ago. Photography has always been for me a playground for art to intersect with technology; a place where I can explore new domains by pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone. Lighting is one such domain.

I will be joined by an outstanding group of passionate photographers, artists, helpers, who will be there for questions and discussions as well as dispensing a good dose of cheer up. If you are as excited to acquire new skills as I am to share them, join me for an exciting and creative ride.

This is an advanced class. In order to participate, you must have a solid understanding of your camera and exposure in manual mode. You will need a camera with a flash hot-shoe (SLR or mirrorless). By the time we start, you will also need at minimum the following lighting equipment:

   - An off-camera flash on which you can manually adjust the power
   - A flash remote trigger (cable or wireless)
   - A light stand with a softbox (or alternatively an umbrella)
   - A reflector (or a large piece of white cardboard)
   - A set of gels. For example the Rosco Strobist kit
   - A tripod for your camera

If you are looking for specifics, here is the equipment I am using: www.ericraeber.com/Blog/Studio-lighting

PLEASE NOTE: Do not apply for this workshop if you do not meet these criteria.

Selections will begin on April 15th and the mentorship will start on April 25th

This is not first come first served. We will review the application and here are my selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three posts per week; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a weekly post and 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 no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.

• You have the time available to participate in this workshop. You will be given about 3 different assignments each week.

• You must own or have access to the equipment above during this entire mentorship

I will use the same selection criteria that +Robin Griggs Wood uses for her "G+ Mentorship Art for Photographers Program", which you can read about here to see if you qualify:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/105385385448524520257/posts/BT1Ei9qD2fi

1) Photography skill level
2) List the lighting equipment you own (or will have access to)
3) Your three favorite subjects
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation

2) Canon Rebel T3i, 2 x Yongnuo YN-560 flash, RF trigger, softbox, stand, gels, tripod, reflector
3) Still Life, Portraits, Macro
4) To get my first paid shoot for a client
5) Full-time grocery store clerk

I know a few of you in my circles may be interested in this writing workshop!!   I'm not familiar with +Christine Organ  but I do know +Angie McMonigal and this looks to be pretty cool!!  It's a deal now too!!

I'm so excited to announce this further collaboration with +Christine Organ  ...something you can get involved in too! You might recall we've been collaborating on this Photo Inspiration Challenge over the last few years, basically I provide a photo, she writes a post or story.

We've created this online writing workshop and whether you're a writer or not this is a great way to fuel your creativity and open your mind to new creative possibilities.

I'm certainly no writer but at some point, as a photographer, there is bound to be some form of writing involved...blog posts, artist statements, project statements, titling your photos, simply coming up with words to describe your work whether in written or spoken form. This writing workshop can only help with getting in the habit and mindset of thinking in word form...something I think we photographers often struggle with.

I honestly think pushing yourself to try new creative processes can only help further your work and it certainly helps to bounce ideas off other creatives. This is exactly what this workshop is meant to do, so check out Christie's post below and follow the link within the post for complete details on the workshop!___I know a few of you in my circles may be interested in this writing workshop!!   I'm not familiar with +Christine Organ  but I do know +Angie McMonigal and this looks to be pretty cool!!  It's a deal now too!!

Old Times

This photo is actually quite nice in color and I will go back and try to process it again but today, my brain or my mood or my inner I don't know what was having nothing of color, it just wouldn't work.  I really wanted to edit it in BW though, so I kept trying that too and kept getting this weird pixelation/clouds where there are no clouds by the horizon line so I just said screw it...let's try this, and this, and that.....so this is what I ended up with and I like it.  Reminds me of a bunch of the old photos of my mom's farm up in North Dakota.
