SmugMug47,002Have you ever wondered how to get your photos picked up by ad agencies? How does a photographer get their foot in the door? These are questions many of us have thought about before, since photography (and ads) are everywhere we look. Well, SmugMug Pro @114056084994793924628 helped answer some of those question during a recent SmugMug podcast (bit.ly/ZsDwsb). But, we found, that the interest in this subject is off the charts, and the follow up questions for Alan have been coming in fast and furious. So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout!  _Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST._ Have a question you would like us to ask Alan? Simply add it as a comment here, on this event. Alan will also do his best to respond to any questions we do not ask during the broadcast, right here in the Google+ event. So make sure to RSVP, and post your best question for Alan. We will even be giving away a year of SmugMug Portfolio to one lucky person who asks a question before the end of the live hangout.  And yes, this will be recorded to view on our YouTube channel.  #Photography #Advertising #Commercial #SmugMug #SmugMugProWhat Ad Agencies Want From You - Interested in Fashion or Commercial Photography?2013-06-12 03:00:0076

Trey Ratcliff8,851,901*Micro Four Thirds Cameras* - A special Hangout event!   *Trey's Variety Hour #56* - subscribe for free on www.YouTube.com/stuckincustoms  We'll have on @103519655975029093996 to talk A LOT about these cameras and what they're all about.  Even my producer for the show @114092052797730247075 is getting one of these cameras!  We're putting together a few other guests right now too...  I think "Micro Four Thirds" might just be the *worst name ever* for a class of cameras. But after you get over that hopelessly confusing fractional name, you may find this is a light, quick, mobile system that will fit your lifestyle.  No more carrying around giant iron and lenses to take good photos needed! #1 Question We Get:  How Can I Be on the Show!?!?!?   Answer:  Contact @114092052797730247075  - he is the gatekeeper for all-things.*Micro Four Thirds Cameras* - A special Hangout event!2012-10-23 04:00:00371

"Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense." *Join in shaPeace Day2012-09-26 09:30:00625

Scott Jarvie444,314*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00141

Trever McGhee93,964Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00213  
Yifat Cohen87,853*HOW ONE MOM’S BLOG BECAME THE BIGGEST NETWORK IN THE UK.*  @117079763782826581726 was a tech journalist contributing stories to ZDNet, Computing, Computer Weekly, Information Age, Mac User and the Guardian.  When her daughter turned 2 she started a parenting blog at Who's the Mummy, (ranked the UK's #1 parenting blog by Cision.) As comments started to come in, she realized there are other women bloggers out there but there was no way to find them, or know who the influences are. So she created @105290313389486695784 *a directory of 2,500 parent blogs that is fully updated every month, and allows brands to search, identify and contact the UK's most popular and influential bloggers.* *WHAT CAN YOU GET FROM A SUCCESSFUL BLOG?* How about an *invitation to go and tour the sets of Harry Potter at Warner Bros Studios* *Paid trips and accommodation* like the one Sally got to the South of France.. *Free products to review* and of course - *a nice income*. *SO HOW DO YOU GET YOUR BLOG TO THAT POINT?* Join us this Thur. and ask Sally directly.How to monetize your blog?

That Summer Feeling
Do you remember it? When I was a kid, the beach was one of those special places that I got to go to during the summer. Tide pools were a particular favorite. It was like a whole world in a bucket-worth's amount of water. Walk a few steps and there was another world to explore! ;oD

What was your favorite place to go in the Summer when you were growing up?

Like lily pads, round and green, these places summoned and then held me up while I grew. Each prepared me for the next leaf on which I would land, and in this way I moved across the swamp of doubt and fear. ~Anne Lamott

One of our most popular programs at the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers -- +Alex Lapidus's Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play is headed for another round! Sign-up at the original post ONLY → go here: https://plus.google.com/+AlexLapidus/posts/diAFj4moGn8

=
Signup here for Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2017

This is a special program on the art and weird science of motion blurs, intentional camera movement, long exposures, and much more, offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers . I will be taking on a small group of people for a free eight week online mentorship which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. This is going to be huge fun, and a great learning experience!

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence. My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

My own photography has benefited enormously from mentorships and coaching offered by +Nathan Beaulne, +Robin Griggs Wood, +Darryl Van Gaal, +Sairam Sundaresan, +Eric Raeber, +Brian Wood-Koiwa, and others here on G+, and my artistic partnership with my #brotherinblur +Heiko Mahr who will join me for this program as well. I’ve had the chance to assist with a number of additional programs, and now to serve as a director of the overall Mentorship Program along with Robin and +Ron Clifford; I’m delighted to have the opportunity to offer my own favorite subject once again! To add to the fun, I've invited the people who participated in and assisted with the last three years' programs to help out this time around, so we'll have all of that fabulous experience in the group.

We’ll be covering a range of topics, including not just how to take certain kinds of images (and sometimes why), but also tools in post-processing and phone apps. My goal is to be able to offer the program to you regardless of the tools you use to capture (or process) images – DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, point & shoot cameras, or Apple or Android smartphones (1). You’ll need to be familiar with the manual operation of any camera, have at least a basic understanding of the Exposure Triangle, and have time to take at least 100-200 photos per week and perhaps many more (because practice with your hands will be key to some techniques; just knowing how won’t be enough). You’ll also need to spend quality time in a (private) community supporting, enjoying, learning from and teaching your fellow participants!

Selections will be announced on Tuesday, May 16, and the first lesson will be posted on Thursday, May 18. The program will run eight weeks, through July 13.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and publicly posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– at least a public (or public collection) photo post every few days, and more is better (the program itself will be private to the group selected, except for the option of a public display album of your favorite work at the end).
• You must be interactive here on G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You must have the time available to participate in this workshop.

To be considered for selection, please answer the following questions, on the main post only, here:
https://plus.google.com/+AlexLapidus/posts/diAFj4moGn8
(your application will not be seen at any reshares). Please note that signups are not first-come, first-served, and comments will remain open for at least a few days, so please don’t worry if you’re not first in line.

1) Cameras (including smartphones) you expect to use in the program
2) Photo editing software and apps used most
3) Your goals for this mentorship
4) Amount of time you have available for participation


(1) There is at least one topic I've found it difficult to address if you’re using a point&shoot camera or smartphone alone (call it half of one of the eight weeks). The ideal combination would be DSLR or mirrorless plus a phone, and if you use only a P&S it needs to be capable of full manual shooting (shutter speed, aperture and ISO).

You can help the planet right in your own backyard (or patio/window-basket)! Plant flowers that are beneficial to pollinators. You get to enjoy them, as well. ... ;o)
If you've got a camera, but not a green thumb, you can help this planet too by taking images of the beauty you see around you every day and keep showing it to everyone.

Just a Little Brown Duck

You may now resume scrolling through your stream in your search for epic eye-candy ... ;o7

If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

Happy April 1st ... “Ok Gnome, mow the lawn” <giggle>
Don't forget to read the fine print! ... ;o))

Meet Google Gnome
The smart yard is finally here.
“Ok Gnome, what’s the windspeed?”
Google Gnome is like having a tiny, little meteorologist at your beck and call. Ask Gnome all kinds of questions, like: "what’s the difference between cirrocumulus and cumulonimbus clouds", "why is humidity the worst", and, for windswept hair in summertime photo shoots, "which way is the wind blowing"?
“Ok Gnome, play fetch”
Google Gnome is designed to work hard and play hard, with entertainment for humans and dogs alike. It can play music in the garden, Marco Polo in the pool, and hide and seek in the yard. It can even play fetch by throwing squeaks thither and hither via 3-D sound, offering hours of fun in thesun.

Google Gnome is designed to work hard and play hard, with entertainment for humans and dogs alike. It can play music in the garden, Marco Polo in the pool, and hide and seek in the yard. It can even play fetch by throwing squeaks thither and hither via 3-D sound, offering hours of fun in the sun.
“Ok Gnome, mow the lawn”
Google Gnome comes programmed with the ability to take charge of your backyard tools. Go hands-free with your pressure washer, leaf blower, tiller, and more. Its cutting edge riding lawnmower integration features a proprietary autopilot mode, allowing you to kick back and ride shotgun on days when you just can’t even.
“Ok Gnome, set alarm to smell the roses”
Google Gnome manages yard tasks like a pro. When mosquitoes start biting, it can add bug spray to your shopping list. It can tell you how to prune your silver maple. It can even remind you to take time for yourself, because what better way to disconnect than to have your connected device alert you to literally stop and smell the roses?
Raign Gear
Accessorize Gnome with gear to protect against the elements.
The Abominable Gnomeman
Keep Gnome cozy in a cover from the hiver collection.
H2GnOme
Gnome can’t swim but with this dino floatie, it can look the part.
My Lil’ Gnomey
Get Gnome a buddy, because friends make everything better.
Gnest
Outfit Gnome with the bird bath attachment for an instant backyard bird sanctuary.
Happy Camper
Bring Gnome to the great outdoors with this specially made camp chair.
Not into yards?
Google Home has all the hands-free help you need, exclusively for indoors


Google Gnomes are real, but only in our hearts — for now. Happy April Fools’!

The FINDING YOUR VISION mentorship is ready for sign-ups!
**********************************************************

This is a special program designed specifically for beginner to intermediate Street Photographers. (Please note "Beginner" means you've shot some Street Photography prior to taking this mentorship)

In this mentorship I will share my Understanding of the elements that make a strong image. Firstly by analysing images captured. Secondly by increased awareness through mindful practice at Street. By the end of the mentorship, participants will have a better understanding of these elements, that should be reflected in their images.
Also a better understand principles of design and their own personal vision.

This mentorship is offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers


I will be taking on a handful of people for an 8 week on-line mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I’ve been taking photos for just over 30 years, and have specialised in Street Photography for the past 2 years.
I’m a Sphere 2 graduate from the Arcanum. Most of my Street Photography has been self taught, but also formally through workshops and the Arcanum.

The applicants will need to be already have experience shooting Street Photography.
You will need to be available to shoot at street at least once a week for 6 of the 8 week program.
Assignments will be posted on a Friday so you need have time available to complete them each week.
You own/ have access to a camera that you can shoot in Automatic / Aperture Priority/ Shutter Priority.
Processing in Adobe Lightroom or similar is preferred but not essential.



PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a technical workshop. You can use any kind of camera that you can shoot on aperture /shutter priority. Either point and shoot, DSLR or mirrorless, you will need to be familiar with your own camera. Processing will covered but please do not outlay any money for software.

The only time anyone should ever take anything of a TIGER is to take it's photograph.

"Tigers face many challenges in the wild, from loss of habitat to conflicts with humans, but the biggest threat continues to be poaching. Tigers are killed by poachers who illegally sell tiger body parts, mostly for folk remedies.

Great Egrets are one of my favorite birds. They are so stately and I am often captivated in watching them move, ever so carefully, as they hunt for delicacies in the water.

We're off and running with one of our favorite mentorships! The signup post for Camera Basics: Beyond Automatic 2017 is up!
Please be sure to sign up ON THE ORIGINAL POST ONLY at https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105385385448524520257/+ByronSheldrick/posts/ZmghjxRQCSN . Your sign up will not be seen at any reshares!

Sign up here for the Camera Basics: Beyond Automatic 2017 mentorship!


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

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you get to know your camera better and be able to move into Manual shooting mode. A group of mentors will be taking on a handful of people for a 8-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

We have assembled a very able group of quality, knowledgeable and caring photographers from the Google+ community who want to share their understanding and experience with you.


PLEASE NOTE: This is a camera BASICS workshop only, designed to help an individual move beyond shooting on auto or semi-automatic modes exclusively. It will cover how to use the various manual options for DSLR cameras and some "point and shoot" cameras that have a dedicated Manual mode. Do not apply for this workshop if your camera does not have a Manual mode.

Also, please be aware that this is an intensive mentorship. Each week will have set assignments, with very clear expectations. You will be shooting a lot. If you are not comfortable with a very guided and directed program, then this might not be the mentorship for you. This mentorship is not about developing your artistic vision. It is, however, very much about giving you the technical control of your camera needed to develop and realize your artistic vision. Advanced editing skills are not required, and for most of the mentorship you will be asked not to edit your photos.

Group size is LIMITED.

Signups will be open for several days, and are not first-come first-served. Selected participants will be notified by Thursday, Feb. 26th, and the first lesson post will be Thursday March 2nd. You will need to have the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers page circled to receive the private message, if you are selected.

░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW TO APPLY
▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– typically at least a couple of PUBLIC posts per week; more posting increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected.)
Posts to a community, even public community are not considered public posts in the sense of this application. Participants are those who regularly post in G+ in a variety of public posts, including posts to public collections.

• You must be interactive with others here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to your fellow participants. We learn from each other in this program.
• You must have the time available to participate in this workshop. You’ll be shooting a lot, and weekly assignments need to be completed on time. The program is designed so that each week builds on the lessons of the previous week. If you are going to be away in the middle of the mentorship, then it might be better to wait until the next offering.

(We 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 for the BASICS mentorship: https://plus.google.com/b/105385385448524520257/105385385448524520257/posts/BT1Ei9qD2fi )

––
To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only!

(your application will not be seen at any reshares) and answer the following questions in your comment:


1) Photography skill level or how long you've been shooting
2) Type of camera/s you currently shoot with that have Manual mode
3) Aspirations within photography
4) Current job or profession
5) Amount of time you have available for participation


EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Shooting for 1 year approx.
2) Canon EOS Rebel T3
3) To sell prints of my work
4) Full-time grocery store clerk
5) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this

How does that make for relevant communication?!). What do you miss in the new interface?
