Lotus Carroll1,769,995This 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 & InspirationLike 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 +Fstoppers 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 +Jason Mayers. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away!

Lotus Carroll1,769,995This 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 07:00:00179

Gailen Mapes75,528Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera S - 21 of 31Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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.2015-01-21 11:21:39115000

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 +2014-08-21 10:37:06105428

Autumn Sunrise Sunbounce

Good morning from my neck of the woods. I decided I was going to clean up some lingering photos on my hard drive and ended up stopping on this one to process for the day.
This is a manual blend of two exposures. One at 0EV and the other +2EV. After I brought in the highlights I wanted I used a couple luminosity masks to adjust and finished off with a touch of selecting adjustments with Viveza/Color Efex.

Have a great day!

After a small snowfall I took a short little walk the other day to see what kind of photo ops I could find. I was really enjoying this stream.

A few weeks ago there was about a half an inch of snow on Crescent Lake, Southington, CT. It made for some interesting patterns in the snow.

It's that wonderful time of year again when everything freezes. So I took a trip up to Enders State Forest yesterday in Simsbury, CT to see what the  falls are looking like. This place is gorgeous at any time of year if you ever have the chance to visit. During the winter definitely bring spikes for your shoes if you want to get this close in a safe manner.

The Rain Maker: Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

HQ Version here :   https://500px.com/photo/95677115?utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=nativeshare&utm_content=web&utm_source=500px

My first image for this new year, and just like last year, I've gone with a lush green forest with a massive massive waterfall. Elowah is seriously one amazing waterfall and to stand next to it and observe its power was a surreal experience. Once you're in the heart of the forest, the only sound you hear is that of the falls. It's like an amphitheater. 

How was this shot taken:
A lot of people shoot the falls from behind and under the bridge to show the stream along with the falls. I decided to do something different. I went as close as I could to the falls to capture the start of the stream before the bridge. Once here, it was a tricky task to frame the shot without getting my camera mercilessly sprayed by the falls. To capture this field of view, which I think is nearly 150 degrees, I had to stitch 4 frames, each of which was bracketed for focus points, and dynamic range. It took me a good hour to negate the spray, wipe my lens, focus again, shoot a frame, and so on. In the end it was worth the effort :)

How was this shot processed:
The most challenging part of processing this image was stitching the various frames together. This wasn't something photoshop could  do automatically, so I had to use manual perspective blending to achieve it. Once that was done, I processed the image using my usual workflow. This is the first time I've tried a blend this hard, so hope it's worked out.

Just in case you did not see this one. Check it out if you are interested in learning about the "Art of photographic composition".

The Seeing Compositions mentorship is ready for sign-ups!

Important: If you reshare this post, please disable comments.

This is a special program to help you improve your photographic composition skills through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. The primary goal of this workshop is to help you learn to see and capture better compositions. I will be taking on a handful of people for a six-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I have been a photographer for over thirty years and have worked professionally for much of that time. I am currently an Apprentice in the Arcanum under the tutelage of +Robin Griggs Wood. I work in many genres, though my current bent is primarily landscapes and macro.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not about basic camera operation or technical aspects of photography. You will be learning the ART of photographic composition and how to make your photographs more appealing. We will explore ways to draw your audience in and hold attention.

This will be an intensive Mentorship. I will ask that you give your all, as will I. Your reward will be commensurate with your investment of time and effort. I expect you to be shooting a LOT because the more you practice, the better ingrained these concepts will become – and the better photographer you will be. There will be weekly assignments based on a theme/concept. I will ask that you shoot ten photographs based on the theme, but you will only be required to post two or three of those. The remaining photos will be on the honor system and for your benefit because, again, how much time and effort you invest determines how much improvement you will see.

Selections will begin January 19 for the mentorship beginning January 28 – I chose a Wednesday to give us a chance to settle in, introduce ourselves and have a weekend to get out shooting, for those who may have regular Monday to Friday jobs.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of 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 are willing to shoot and process 10+ photographs per week (only three will be shared in the community, but they will be the “best of” the ten or more that you shoot).

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here:  https://plus.google.com/108127039931400009413/posts/2qJuFWSuAZm
(your application will not be seen at any reshares) and answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation
8) How often you currently shoot

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CC
3) Trees, landscapes, waterfalls
4) To sell prints of my work
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this 
8) Twice a week

I will read all responses. However, I will not be able to respond individually to each of you. 

The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is run by program directors +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford and +Alex Lapidus

Autumn Drift

 I took this a couple years ago, handheld two shots (bottom to top). Today I'd probably compose with a bit more foreground interest and definitely a tripod. Either way, when I look at this one I just want to jump in and enjoy those warm colors :)

I sure can agree. My time on G+ (or anywhere has been quite limited), but when I do look at the stream it is usually all out of order and full of stuff I do not want. The only way it makes sense to me is if I go to my smaller circles...
That being said. Looking at +Tamara Pruessner's current posts on her profile sure makes me wonder why G+ hasn't show me those. I've definitely been missing out.

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.

Ayers Gap Preserve, North Franklin, CT
I took my last hike of the year today at a new location. The last couple of years I was able to hike about 800 miles. 2014 was different due to a nasty ankle sprain that I nursed most of the year. Even with that I logged about 200 miles on the trail and I look forward to 2015 and getting closer to my 1000 mile goal. Happy New Years!

I asked this guy if he'd seen any #segaulls around and all I got was this dirty look. I'm pretty sure he was onto me and my #Gulluminati cohorts and most likely a #seagullbuttindisguise ...

Autumn Sunrise Sunbounce

Good morning from my neck of the woods. I decided I was going to clean up some lingering photos on my hard drive and ended up stopping on this one to process for the day.
This is a manual blend of two exposures. One at 0EV and the other +2EV. After I brought in the highlights I wanted I used a couple luminosity masks to adjust and finished off with a touch of selecting adjustments with Viveza/Color Efex.

Have a great day!

A friendly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel I met a few weeks ago at a Coton de Tulear meetup. Her name is Audrey and her smile was addictive.
Have a great day!

+Sairam Sundaresan was a wonderful mentor to me in the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers program. I feel lucky to have had the chance to learn from someone so talented. I'm sure he will be great in the +The Arcanum as a Master. If you want to learn about capturing landscape photography I'd highly recommend it.
