Welcome to The Selfie Sunday Project for April 5, 2015

We are back!

First thing you may notice is "Selfy" has become "Selfie", just a change to keep up with the more recognized spelling of selfie.

A general theme for this week is New Beginnings , it's Spring and Selfie Sunday has returned so it seems to fit. If you can't stick to the theme no worries either, since we are freshly back and running any selfie you take is fine. 

Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Selfie Sunday.

http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8

Your photo can be taken from Mar. 30/15 before the event up until 8:00 AM EDT Monday Apr. 6/15. Older photos posted will be removed from the event.

Please only post one photo to the event and that photo should ideally be taken the weekend or the week prior to the event.

Again, please no dipping into the archives.

As always have some fun.

+Selfy Sunday is returning. Look out for the new Spring 2015 Selfy Sunday Project event for the first weekend in April.

Yes that is the holiday Easter weekend, so get your "Bunny" suits out and dusted off.

I will announce the theme and the event on the Thursday before that weekend.

Have to have some of the regular folks back and always looking for new photographers to particpate.

Don't forget the April Self Portrait Challenge is still on

"Wet" In celebration of April showers is the theme. This Event is open until 11:59 CST April 30th
 
This is the Event for our April Self Portrait Challenge: "Wet." In celebration of "April Showers," but very flexible conceptually, our "Wet" theme allows you to interpret however you like. Get creative - we're looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Here is where you enter your ONE "Wet" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST April 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

There are so many possibilities for this theme - will you be underwater, in the rain, or soaking in the tub? Maybe riding some ocean waves or drowning in a lake? The possibilities are endless!

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.

If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything. 

Thanks to +Jason Jakober, one of our talented Moderators, for the header image on this Event!

Behind a camera most of the time until I slip out in front then it's selfy time!
Introduction
Oh just a geek and photographer at heart. Everything else just pays the bills.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
My images reveal who I really am.

My passion for photography started over 30 years ago when I discovered a medium that translates my visions and dreams into my reality.

I am a published, award winning documentary style photographer who has explored many different photographic genres from landscapes to big city urban architecture, from portraits to events.

I have cut my teeth on film and moving to digital was a natural progression from the darkroom. I have never had more of an appreciation for the craft of photography than I do today.

Photography is the reason I get up every day, new visions swirling in my head: “Photography for me is very personal; it’s how I see the world and how the world see’s me through my images”
