When you touch one ocean, you touch them all.

I couldn't resist snapping these two sisters enraptured by the sea. They danced and laughed the whole time they were there. What a luck to see; I may have giggled more than they … :o))

Love posting to themes? You might enjoy these great themes with excellent curators! Themes and hashtags are not necessarily about getting more attention, but are a valuable indexing method, which help others find relevant posts via clickable links as well as a great way to meet like-minded people. I tend to only promote those themes with active, caring curators.

Pacific, Venice Beach, CA

40sec. :o)

I was shooting some skateboarders to have some footage for our students to work with. It was an amazing afternoon.
After dinner in Venice Beach, we went back and shot the nice Sun over the pacific.
I love those little clips. I challenge myself always to hear the music inside me, to show even more how much things move me. I reproduce it then in LogicPro. I hope you like the tune ;o)The Pacific is certainly top on my list of places in my hometown L.A.
Enjoy the weekend, if you like: Happy Easter.

Silence

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path to a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.  ~Mahatma Gandhi

Sometimes my husband and I have hotdogs for lunch and watch the mallards swim in the creek.  There is one mated pair, and the male is so considerate of the female, not only does he keep all the other males away?  He also lets her have first go at the duck food people toss.

A New Mentorship through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is coming up! Make sure you sign up over at +Alex Lapidus' stream ►►►► next Tuesday, April 29  to be considered for selection.
 
Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play

With the support of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , I’ve decided to offer a free eight week program on the art and weird science of unsharp photography.  The official signup post will be next Tuesday, April 29, and the program will run from May 9 through July 5.

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!

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 (*).  You’ll need to be familiar with the manual operation of any camera, and have time to take approximately 100-200 photos per week (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!

Some wonderful photographers have graciously agreed to help with the program, including +Nathan Beaulne , +Heiko Mahr , +Jacob Dix , +Paul Brown , +Julianne Bockius , +Jetski Jones , and +Linda Villers .  I’m also extremely grateful for the behind the scenes support of +Robin Griggs Wood , and the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers and its other directors +Ron Clifford and +Tamara Pruessner .


(*) There is at least one topic I may be unable 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).  Questions welcome anytime, and keep an eye out for the signup post on April 29!

I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

In the past, I’ve never been much compelled to be very public. However, with the numbers in one private online community I belong to reducing like bills in a shore-leave-sailor’s pocket, a social network is possibly coming to a close for me -- so I am finding the need for an outlet of another kind. Or, maybe I’ve had a minor stroke and don’t know it.

I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.


Let me begin with this: 

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.
