1,775,119This 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!

1,775,119This 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 & Tips* Need some tips and inspiration for this challenge? Have no fear! That's why we're here. :) The amazing @110573952887886961621 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/vzcRHL *Remember 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:* Snapseed VSCOcam Retouch (cloning tool!)

1,775,119I'm here in the big city, baby! There is something about this place that just makes me restless… it's like that living pulse that seems to throb through the streets just gets inside of you and doesn't stop. I *love* it!  So, while I'm not sleeping much and sucking up everything I can, I figured I couldn't let my visit go by without a photowalk, and some of my local (super awesome) friends agreed. I know this is last minute notice, but sometimes that's just how it goes. So grab your cameras/phones and join me along with @108906879763321014176, @114056084994793924628, & @108527329601014444443 as we enjoy one another's company while doing what we love and do best. :) We'll meet at the High Line entrance on 16th at 5:15 and start walking at about 5:30. Rain gear optional. See you all there! :DNYC Photowalk with Lotus & Friends2012-07-31 17:15:0026

Hi Street Photographers.

Its been a while since I have posted anything here. I think its fair that you all understand that I went through a burnout. I was and still am the only Moderator for this community. I have attempted to contact the owner of the community requesting additional moderators and later ownership as I was drowning in moderating. I never heard back from Messay.

I would sit for hours at time weeding through images caught and labelled as spam-most often for good reason. I never had a time to share my own stuff let alone see any one else's. This had a big impact on me.

I want you to all know that Im back and I want to resurrect this community. I want to add Moderators to every sub-group and create interactive events for all of us to participate. I just went to a Photowalk with some old friends that I met here and I remembered what I loved about G+. It was... more »

I must say that quality of images that are being shared in the community clearly is a clear indication of the hard work the moderators have put in.

This is incredible. I didnt think I would see the day that I can go in and enjoy images and not moderate.

Truly blessed.

+teresa pilcher, you heard my cry and rallied the troops. I am in your debt.

Old image of mine.

"Guiding Light" is my second submission to #5dayblackandwhitechallenge.

This image brings me back to the commuter days. Walking through NY's Penn Station, I forced myself to always be shooting. Everyday on my commute I made it my task to shoot daily.

I shot this image on an iPhone as came up to the street. The sun was completely in my face. I hoped to take an image of the bridge between the two buildings up the street. The stranger just stopped for traffic in the time that I took the shot.

+David Firstenberg, thank you again. ___Old image of mine.

Hi Street Photographers.

Its been a while since I have posted anything here. I think its fair that you all understand that I went through a burnout. I was and still am the only Moderator for this community. I have attempted to contact the owner of the community requesting additional moderators and later ownership as I was drowning in moderating. I never heard back from Messay.

I would sit for hours at time weeding through images caught and labelled as spam-most often for good reason. I never had a time to share my own stuff let alone see any one else's. This had a big impact on me.

I want you to all know that Im back and I want to resurrect this community. I want to add Moderators to every sub-group and create interactive events for all of us to participate. I just went to a Photowalk with some old friends that I met here and I remembered what I loved about G+. It was the shooters.

I pledge that I will do what I can to bring this community back to where it can be.

Best,

Dave

With just one print which you send to a street photographer in Germany you can make a difference and make him smile. Let us give him one smile every day until he can leave hospital by the end of the year that we can go out to shoot again. Read the full story here:
