I see +Edward McEwen attended the Turtle release yesterday at the Barrier Island Center. Thanks Ed for sharing your photos of the event.
My wife and I considered attending, but we decided to take our chances on finding a late nesting turtle on Archie Carr Refuge just south of Ponce de Leon Park in Melbourne Beach. We found a very late Green Turtle. Here are a few photos. This is the first time we had a late nesting turtle all to ourselves. Usually they draw a crowd when they are this late. She did not return to the sea until 8:00 AM.

I have been participating in +The Arcanum for a little over a year now. I have such a great learning experience in +Robin Griggs Wood cohort where after completing photographic challenges and assignments, you rise through levels of accomplishment. While pursuing Level 14, Robin challenged me to get published "in the next 30 days".  Well I accepted her challenge. which led me to developing a relationship with the photo editor of our local Life Style Magazine. 

Well I met the challenge in just 15 days back in May. One of my photos was published on the Contents page in the June issue of Space Coast Living Magazine.

Fast forward to September and I am now being given assignments to shoot in our local area in addition to my prior work being routinely considered for monthly articles and calendar event posts. I can hardly believe it. I was published in the September and October issues, and will be published in the November issue. Although I am being paid for my work, getting published was never about the money. It was about getting confirmation that I was producing work that a photo editor would consider publishing. The image below is the intro spread for the feature article... Our Haunted Coast published in the October issue of Space Coast Living. Three other photos of mine were also used in the article.  They even used my composites with added ghosts to 3 of the photos. Hard to believe my composites are being published because I don't consider myself having very accomplished photoshop/composite skills. I am very grateful for the opportunity. 

Lessons Learned - Find yourself a mentor that will challenge you! Thanks to Robin for her encouragement (boot) as well as her coaching over the course of a couple of years now in the MAPP and Arcanum. If you want to be published it is really all about developing a relationship with a photo editor. Giving yourself an assignment or accepting an assignment you have never done before builds skills. Keep saying yes. Deliver more than what is asked of you. It pays off in the long run. 

If you care to see the whole SCL Magazine... here is the link to the on-line version. You will see my photos on page 7, 66, 68, 69, 70, and 92. - http://www.mirabelsmagazinecentral.com/DigitalEdition/index.html?id=ce0122bf-4040-42e3-8918-ad256751f155

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of participating in a portrait workshop given by John Buck. Although we had a model to work with most of the time (see the young lady below), in a segment of the workshop we asked strangers if we could take their photo. A little intimidating, but so much fun! I got to meet Tom the lifeguard and Tony the Vietnam Vet. I found it easy to approach people by first getting to know them a little before pointing the camera toward them. I think it made for better portraits too.

Introduction
                                    
I am crazy about photography. I really enjoy constantly learning and improving my eye and skills . . .  From time to time I write articles for local publications on basic photography and post-processing tips. I will add those articles to my blog if you care to take a look. 

I am so impressed with many talented photographers who share their work on the internet, especially those images that brings an emotional response to the viewer. I enjoy striving for that emotional response in my own work so give me your feedback.  I am interested in your opinion.

Thanks!   Chuck Palmer
