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

Kelli Seeger Kim1,312,213It's +Karen Hutton 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But +Kerry Murphy and I couldn't wait any longer!)Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.  What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.  Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.  We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-)So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058G+

Lotus Carroll1,773,514I'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 +Titus Winters, +Alan Shapiro, & +Vivienne Gucwa 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 17:15:0026G+

Gailen Mapes66,095Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 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 +2014-07-14 10:42:14187449CC G+

Hugh Ferguson10,217A starter circle for those new to G+ I just realised its a year since I joined G+. When I started I was lucky enough to come across a really useful circle share to help me on my way. As I have yet to share a circle of my own I will try and give something back, in the hope it helps those in a similar position. I am not posting this for +1's, shares or to gain new followers - so please do not feel obliged to share, +1 or follow - there are plenty of those type of circle shares around if that's what you want The circle below is just a selection of the 3000 or so I follow. All are excellent and active contributors to G+. It's quite Landscape biased (too many great photographers to pick out one or two), but there are examples of other genres and resources for example:Great photographers who work tirelessly through communities and pages, producing great interaction, such as +Margaret Tompkins +Kevin Rowe +Rinus Bakker and +Nancy Dempsey .... wonderful creative artists like +Heidi Anne Morris +Lotus Carroll +Bryan Peterson .....street photographers such as +Thomas Leuthard +Angelica Guckes ......the exquisite beauty of flowers and Macro by +Rosie Nixon +Silke Tüxen ......great teachers such as +Nicole S.

Gailen Mapes65,089Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-06-14 11:12:201974111CC G+

Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.

Magic exists. Who can doubt it when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.

Magic exists. Who can doubt it when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.

The +Drink and Click™ Las Vegas, Nevada inaugural monthly photowalk. All photography levels welcome.

The August Drink and Click™ challenge is contrasting colors. A link with more details will be shared later.

We'll meet up at Miller's in Town Square, have a drink, then head out on our merry way. I expect I'll stop for a drink or two along the way.  :)

Closest parking is the south garage. Here's the website for address and location map. http://www.mytownsquarelasvegas.com/

The Beauty of Change

We collected a rather large batch of caterpillars that were threatening to skeletonize my sunflower garden recently. I housed them in a small plastic container with slots for air designed to hold buggies and fed them sunflower leaf rations (they turned their noses up at other types of leaves) saving most of my garden from destruction while still feeding them. After several days, they all suited up in their respective chrysalises and made with the metamorphosing. We dug witnessing this, and awaited the unfolding of their wings as they became Bordered Patch Butterflies (Chlosyne lacinia).

For the past couple of days, they've been greeting the world anew, and as they do, we open the hatch on the container and set them free into my (flower filled, butterfly orgasmic) back yard. It is an incredibly joyous feeling to watch one of them lift out of the housing... more »

A Petite Beauty

How about a slightly early #FloralFriday  post? :-) These tiny red flax grow in my garden and are a personal favorite. They are at once both delicate and fierce... petite as can be, but they outshine many of the other blooms around them.

Perfect for celebrating the anniversary of another petite (fierce, talented, big-hearted) beauty I call a dear friend. Wishing you the happiest of birthdays, +Tamara Pruessner! Love you. ❤

This is the Event for our July Self Portrait Challenge: Silhouettes. What is meant by this? This means that you'll create an image of yourself in silhouette: as a dark shape or outline against a lighter background.

Here is where you enter your ONE Silhouette Self Portrait. Your photo(s) must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST July 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

I wrote a tutorial with some tips and advice about silhouette self portraiture  - check it out here: http://goo.gl/wJXCSC and then try it yourself!

The Song of the Sea

The song of the sea comes alive, sometimes with witnesses, sometimes alone. At times she is blue, other times she shines in caramel tones. No matter the circumstances, each day she wakes and sings anew.

June Self Portrait Challenge Honorable Mentions

Here are the Honorable Mentions from the "Summer" June Challenge. You can see the Event and all of the submissions here: http://goo.gl/rzUcBw

The photos attached to this post were considered finalist contenders but were not eligible to win prizes because either they were created by moderators (we play but we aren't eligible to win!) or these photographers have won sometime in the past 6 months. However, because these photos would go into the Finalists pool otherwise, I wanted them to get recognition, and so these are our Honorable Mentions. Well done! (Click to enlarge the photo and see who's tagged in them.)

How To: Silhouette Photography / Self Portraits

Sometimes you can say just as much with the suggestion of a thing as you can with all of the detail. This is true of silhouette photography - a genre that can be alarmingly beautiful and expressive. If you've never shot silhouettes, you may be wondering how to achieve this look. It's fairly simple to get the basics down, and hopefully this post will help. From there, you can let your creativity run wild!

The July Self Portrait Challenge is Silhouette Photography.

Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.

In late summer last year, swarms of dragonflies visited my backyard every afternoon/evening for some time. It was so delightful. I really hope there will be more of them this year. They seem so sweet and friendly with their little fake smiles and head nods.

If you're interested, I took a short video of one of them: http://youtu.be/YA8Ao2V0I7g

Seagull 1: No! Back off, a-hole! This is MY seaweed clump!

Seagull 2: Get bent, jerkface, I'm coming in for a landing and I'm taking that clump. This beach isn't big enough for the two of us! Screeeee!

Seagull 3: (with upturned beak) Fools. They argue over such a substandard seaweed clump while I reign over a veritable garden of golden delights. preens

One of only 9 Sony Artisans of Imagery worldwide and a successful travel photographer, Vivienne shared with us her story - how she got started, the evolution of her work, and what she is up to currently, including finalizing plans for a book release later this year. We also saw some great images from our panel. Make some time to watch this inspirational episode!
