Lotus Carroll1,771,788This 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). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.Tutorial & TipsNeed some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing +Mark Rodriguez made a tutorial about shooting cell phone photos to get you inspired - see it here: http://goo.gl/z3IZ23 He also posted a video of his process - see it here: http://goo.gl/vzcRHLRemember these Do's and Don'ts to get the best photo:*DO take the time to set up your shot thoughtfully.*DO invest time and effort and try more than once to get it right.*DO make sure your lens is clean.*DO take your photo in adequate light so it's not grainy, blurry, or dark.*DO put the cell phone down and use a timer - stop taking all your photos by holding the phone and pointing at yourself or a mirror.*DO try different angles for the best composition.*DO read the posts in our Tutorials Category and try the concepts and ideas you learn from them: http://goo.gl/uSUULE *DO try different apps and see what works best for you.*DO be aware of your background! It makes a huge difference! Is there junk in the room behind you? If yes, it's not a good place to shoot. ETC.*DO NOT just slap a filter or cheesy effect on and call it a day - take the time to try different edits and pay attention to the elements of your photo. *DO NOT point your phone at a mirror and take a reflection photo where we can see your phone.*DO NOT have your arms in the photo as you're holding the phone out in front of or above you.*DO NOT duckface.*DO NOT showcase your cleavage as the main subject.Here's a list of Photo Apps you can try out:SnapseedVSCOcamRetouch (cloning tool!)Camera+Camera!PhotoStudioPixlr ExpressAviaryInsPhotoPrizes1 Year of +September Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo2013-09-01 07:00:00180G+

Gailen Mapes66,670Hand 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 #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 +2014-08-09 11:07:541394111CC G+

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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 #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 +2014-07-09 16:13:04147408CC G+

Galeries St-Hubert

Eventually I will get through my images from the photo tour/workshop with +John Batdorff Photography in June in Belgium!  It's fun to go back though and wish I were still there!

Playing with the new +Macphun Software Tonality Pro editing! For someone like me who does not use Photoshop, this is like the love child of Lightroom & Photoshop!  I'm loving playing with it and expanding my thinking about how I edit.

Waves

So many different angles, shapes, curves, darks & lights.  So many different ways to shoot this building.  Next time I need to find someone who has access up higher!!   The restaurant and bar area is also gorgeous!

Another shot from a wonderful afternoon spent with +Beth Akerman & +Stephanie Anglemyer wandering the city of Chicago!

Waiting

I say this all the time, but if you just look around you never know what you'll see.  Maybe not everyone would "see" this as I did but the composition just appeared to me as I stood there.  

Another shot from the afternoon with +Stephanie Anglemyer   & +Beth Akerman   downtown Chicago on Thursday.

Middle Wave

Still going through some of the photos from last week's wandering around Chicago with +Beth Akerman & +Stephanie Anglemyer.

It's been awhile since I've played with +Nik Collection by Google Silver Efex Pro 2 and +John Batdorff Photography presets, so I did a little editing in Lightroom, then used one of John's presets (Black & Blue) in Silver Efex 2 and a little more in Lightroom.  You can get John's presets here:  http://bit.ly/OurR9H

Lightroom Question....

See that file name, date and image size there?  That never used to be there?  Did I hit some key to make that show up??

I've been wowed....

My husband finally found a space within a chiropractic office for his massage therapy practice so he has a new space with blank walls.  He knew once he found his own space he wanted to hang some of my artwork on the walls (well, why wouldn't he??)   His idea was the 4 seasons so I chose a few shots for him to pick from, he looked through my website and chose another and this is what we ended up with.

I knew they had to be large prints - 8x10s and 11x14s do not look that good on a big blank wall. They just don't.  So, I had previously received a free 8x10 metal print from +Adoramapix as a promo during a photo walk and I love it!  

I asked if anyone had a coupon code and was thrilled when they sent me one!  Thanks again Libby!!   She just asked that I share photos of the prints.  So here they are!  16x24 metal prints, white glossyfinish. ... more »

I love the city of Chicago, I do.  I live about an hour away and go downtown any chance I get!   This week I was lucky enough to go 3 times.  Fellow G+er, fellow +Chrysta Rae Scavenger hunter (that's how we met in the first place), fellow +The Arcanum student and I think I can call her a friend - definitely a like minded friend.

+Stephanie Anglemyer  was in town for a few days to play.  I'm so happy I was able to meet her on 3 of the days to wander around and shoot together.   If you don't have her in your circles you should, especially now so you can follow her Chicago shots!!  Like this one - check this out.  Can you see the Big Dipper?

Chicago, you've been wonderful, but it's time to go back to my lovable Chunk-I miss my cuddle buddy!

One last thanks to +Lauri Novak for her wonderful and knowledgable photography tour guide experience. I'll be tagging you in lots of (hopefully) wonderful shots in the weeks ahead!___I love the city of Chicago, I do.  I live about an hour away and go downtown any chance I get!   This week I was lucky enough to go 3 times.  Fellow G+er, fellow +Chrysta Rae Scavenger hunter (that's how we met in the first place), fellow +The Arcanum student and I think I can call her a friend - definitely a like minded friend.

Announcing Plus One Collection Volume III Fundraising Campaign

It's been a long journey, but we are fully focused on this now, and want to get the latest version of the #PlusOneCollectionIII book into your hands before Christmas. To help us get there, we created an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign that will provide us with the funds needed to publish the book. 

All the details are here - http://igg.me/at/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

We also created a video explaining our project. You can find it here - Plus One Collection, Volume III 

We hope you can help up in two ways - first, contribute the funds for the book by picking one of the perks offered there. Second, please help us spread the word! Share the news here, share the news to your friends and family on other social networks and email. Share, share, share!

Announcing Plus One Collection Volume III Fundraising Campaign

It's been a long journey, but we are fully focused on this now, and want to get the latest version of the #PlusOneCollectionIII book into your hands before Christmas. To help us get there, we created an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign that will provide us with the funds needed to publish the book. 

All the details are here - http://igg.me/at/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

We also created a video explaining our project. You can find it here - Plus One Collection, Volume III 

We hope you can help up in two ways - first, contribute the funds for the book by picking one of the perks offered there. Second, please help us spread the word! Share the news here, share the news to your friends and family on other social networks and email. Share, share, share!

We set a goal to raise $30,000 in the next 30 days. We know it's a lofty one, but it will allow us to do two things - publish and ship the book to all campaign sponsors, and raise $5,000-10,000 for our charitable cause, Eliza O'Neill. 

The campaign is a fixed goal campaign, meaning, we do need to meet the goal of $30,000 before we receive any funds and can print the book. 

I know many of you who contributed photographs to the book want to know if your photo made it. We're still working on the selection, and will announce the list of contributing artists next week. Stay tuned! 

But in the meantime, we're happy to announce that the book publication process is back on track and with your help, let's make it happen and help Eliza!___

Buckingham Fountain

So last week +Gary Munroe posted an awesome night shot of Buckingham Fountain in Chicago and I wondered why I've never shot it at night before.  Tonight I had the opportunity to shoot with +Stephanie Anglemyer who is in town.  We did a bit of wandering around, had some dinner and made it back for the 9:00 show!   I will have to go back though and try harder as none of my shots are really wowing me.

Great to meet another G+'er in person though!

Relay Cross

The start of Cyclocross season has begun here in Chicago.  The season kicks off with a relay cross race which is always fun to shoot!

This one is a little different than what I normally shoot as I like to make sure I get the racers full on their bikes and there are other photogs who like to do the close up, wonky angle stuff.  :)

To see the rest of the 1st race from yesterday go here: http://bit.ly/1okEDSJ

NOT MY PHOTO

I'm in a sharing mood today....Look at this brilliant shot from +Elizabeth Lund.  I know you all know Elizabeth, she's always around to comment and plus and support all of us.  How about we do the same for her!!  

Leave plusses and comments on her original post.  

Thanks Elizabeth for the sunshine and color you brought us today and bring us everyday!!

She Was The Center Of Attention
She moved slowly onto the dance floor and began to sway with the music
Soon she was surrounded by others
It was not her intention, to become the center of attention

Learn How Google+ Works for Dentists

I'm so very excited to announce the Google+ Primer for Dentists Hangout on Air series.  This 10-week HOA series is completely free and will guide dentists on every aspect of Google+, from the basics of Profiles and Pages, to some amazing web apps to monitor results, find and connect with relevant people in your field and geographic area, so the future of Google Semantic Search, and more.  A line-up of top Google+ experts will be my guests.

As far as I can tell, nothing like this has ever been done in dental marketing before, so I guarantee that you will learn more about social media marketing than you can imagine.  Come join us!

The kick-off session is on Saturday, Sept. 6th at 1:00PM EST.  Sign up here: http://goo.gl/14xuBe

Sharing my random website share from my +Lauri Novak Photography  page. :)

And - an note of perhaps inspiration....

If you don't put yourself out there you're not going to get anything in return.  I've been shooting cyclocross in Chicago for the last 4 years, mostly because my brother races. At first, it was all about him and his teammates or friends.  I had a blast so started hanging around for the entire day of racing.  Then I started posting the shots and linking them on the Chicago Cross Cup blog.  Then, you know what?  People started buying them. 

This year, I'm a season sponsor - just a few bucks to have my business name on a banner at every single race.   This was just announced last week on their blog.  And you know what, I got an order for a online use download from a 2013 race.

I met +Johana Fragozo through +The Arcanum and if you take a look at her work you won't be disappointed - go look - circle her!!

Hang in there
When your day is long and the night 
The night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on
Don't let yourself go 
Everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes
I am sure many of you guys out there have gone through the dark moments, those moments when we feel everything is so heavy and even just getting out of bed it's terrifying or requires an incredible effort.  Hang in there, don't let go, not just yet, it will get better! I promess It gets better.  Lots of love to you!

Went back to see a few of the shots I grabbed with my phone last month and liked the angle of this.  Decided to play with the processing.  I'm actually having fun with the +Macphun Software Creative Suite.  This was edited in Intensify Pro using 3 different layers and adjusting them to my liking.   Something quite different for me.

Dirty

Went back to see a few of the shots I grabbed with my phone last month and liked the angle of this.  Decided to play with the processing.  I'm actually having fun with the +Macphun Software Creative Suite.  This was edited in Intensify Pro using 3 different layers and adjusting them to my liking.   Something quite different for me.

I just switched from the Lincoln Park walk to the Chicago River Walk - there are now 3 total walks listed in Chicago - Lincoln Park, The Bean and this one for the Chicago Riverwalk.

So my Chicago area friends - here is the only walk listed so far - I've signed up but I am in hopes of this one filling up so they let us open up another walk that I have applied to lead.  I love Lincoln Park, I do, but I'm so ready to go shoot another area of the city - +Zac Lowing suggested the LaSalle Street Canyon area - lots of architecture to be shot there!  

so - if you want to go on a #WWPW14  in Chicago - sign up for this one - right now there are 33 spots left, but I don't see the organizer promoting this anywhere....

Ok - I'm jumping on the bandwagon here!  I have tried the "Purse/Camera" bags but as someone who prefers not to carry a purse even they did not work out for me either.  Big/cumbersome and not convenient for actually going out and shooting.  Sure they look nice walking through an airport and help my laptop as well but since I don't travel much for business anymore I'm in need of a "carry my gear, carry my bag with me while hiking/shooting" type of bag.

 I do have a smallish Lowe Pro Passport sling which has served me quite well for the last 3 or 4 years.  It's easy to get in and out of on the fly.  But, it's a bit small if I want to carry more than 2 lenses, my wallet, and my camera.

If +BlackRapid can make camera straps that work with a woman's curves I'm quite sure a bag manufacturer can make a bag with straps that work with them aswell. ... more »

Camera Bags: A Rant of Frustration from a Woman's Perspective, by @nicolesy:

I’m a woman, and I like purses and bags. I am also a photographer, and so with that I tend to collect lots of cool bags. Yay, bags! I have more than I will use, some come and go with my photography style or locations I travel to, and some have stuck…___Ok - I'm jumping on the bandwagon here!  I have tried the "Purse/Camera" bags but as someone who prefers not to carry a purse even they did not work out for me either.  Big/cumbersome and not convenient for actually going out and shooting.  Sure they look nice walking through an airport and help my laptop as well but since I don't travel much for business anymore I'm in need of a "carry my gear, carry my bag with me while hiking/shooting" type of bag.

Galeries St-Hubert

Eventually I will get through my images from the photo tour/workshop with +John Batdorff Photography in June in Belgium!  It's fun to go back though and wish I were still there!

Playing with the new +Macphun Software Tonality Pro editing! For someone like me who does not use Photoshop, this is like the love child of Lightroom & Photoshop!  I'm loving playing with it and expanding my thinking about how I edit.
