Good Afternoon, Plus Peeps!

How are you doing today? I've been kind of MIA lately, but trying to do better about checking in on here more often... Yesterday I made it out to the local botanical gardens for the first time in a while, and was thrilled to find some beautiful tulips opening their gorgeous petals toward the sun. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Yeah, I guess I'm a little late in wishing you all a Happy New Year... Well, lots of interesting stuff happened in the last quarter of 2015, and it has taken me a while to process it all. I took a brief hiatus from social media, in an attempt to get some clarity about my priorities, and the direction in which my career is heading. Anyway, I'm trying to get back on track with posting stuff here, so there's no better day than today to start. And since Friday is host to one of my very favorite themes, I offer you #BeerBokeh , because #FridaysAreBokehlicious !

I noticed a significant drop in my follower count, probably due to the fact that I haven't posted in almost a month. So I'm not sure who will even see my posts anymore. Nevertheless, I need to take a moment and extend best wishes to my fellow #bokeholics , who have carried the proverbial #bokeh  torch faithfully in my absence. Even though I wasn't posting on my personal profile, I have been monitoring the stream of certain community groups, as well as curating part-time for the HQSP Animals theme. So I may have commented on a few of your posts along the way, even if my own page stayed empty during that time. 

Little by little, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, and hopefully will be able to post more frequently in the near future. So without further ado, many thanks to my blurry besties from the #bokehphotography  community:

#FridaysAreBokehlicious  and as such I would be remiss in my duties if I didn't share some glorious golden #bokeh  glamour with y'all. Earlier this week I met these two sisters, and their photo shoot was epic, full of shenanigans and tomfoolery. For the most part, they posed themselves, and generally frolicked about on the sidewalk with the city streets glowing in the background. I rarely photograph  teenagers, but I was pleasantly surprised by how remarkably well they felt at ease in front of my lens. I'm grateful that I was able to capture a couple of magical moments for their parents.

If you like #bokehphotography  then make sure to click on these hashtags, so you can see more fantastic imagery from talented #bokeholics  like +Leo Deegan +Paul Moody +Robin Griggs Wood +Michael B. Stuart +Kathleen Kent +Lauri Novak +Elizabeth Hahn  and many more open aperture aficionados!

This is definitely something worth checking out! Click on the OP for more information, to ask questions, or to sign up.
The How Do You See? mentorship is ready for sign-ups!

This is a special program for those who are looking to add that little extra umph to their images by looking at the world around them in a different way through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

I will be taking on a limited number of people for a 6 week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I have been taking photos for 40ish years (you do the math). It’s a passion and one of the things that has remained consistent throughout is my ‘photographic eye’. One of the questions I get asked most often is “how did you see that”? In college, on a trip to Greece I was shooting a flower coming through a fence when one of my fellow travelers asked what I was shooting, my reply: Don’t you SEE that? The answer was no of course they didn’t. I also have a passion for helping others and I’m hoping through this mentorship program I can help you find your photographic eye, to see the world around you in a new and different way and to help you produce images that make your viewer see something in a new way as well.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a technical workshop. You can use any kind of camera - phone - tablet - point and shoot - DSLR and yes, even mirrorless ;). Editing will actually not be allowed for most of this program so editing skills are not needed either! YAY!

Selections will begin March 15th for the mentorship beginning March 20th.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.)
• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You have no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop.

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here:

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

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation

1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CS3
3) Trees, landscapes, waterfalls
4) To sell prints of my work
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this

The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is run by program directors +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford and +Alex Lapidus

By day I work in Business Development & Marketing for an online retailer.  Some of the sandboxes I get to play in include Email Marketing, Affiliate Management, Social Media Marketing, Copy Writing, Copy Editing, Proofreading, SEO, and Google Analytics.

At night and on weekends I prefer a more creative playground, where I can experiment with Digital Photography & Photoshop.  I take my camera with me everywhere I go, but am finally starting to learn to take fewer shots and instead compose images before clicking the shutter.  As time permits, I enjoy sharing images in the +Daily Photography Themes.  I met a number of amazing photographers in this community, and constantly find new inspiration. Want to know what we talk about? Thanks to +Jari Huomo you can easily browse through some of the best conversations from my page.

Other places you might occasionally find me online include Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Klout just to name a few.

I regularly participate in +Chrysta Rae’s Photography Scavenger Hunt, which I highly recommend not only for learning more about your own photography, but for making lots of new friends.  Here are just a few of the incredible people with whom I have the pleasure of interacting: +Chrysta Rae +Alan Shapiro +Kimberly Pemberton +Gary Munroe +Mel Peifer +Eustace James +Gilmar Smith +Mark Rodriguez +LaDonna Pride +GeneBowker If you are interested in learning more about the Hunt, and perhaps wish to view some photos from the latest adventure, check out this post!

I'm also involved in the Public Circles Project

If you appreciate Creativity, and want to fill your stream with Art and Beauty, make sure you circle:

Car Sense has a very comfortable hospitality suite, complete with refreshments and free WiFi. The repair process can often be confusing and full of anxiety; but Scott left me feeling like I was in good hands, clarifying all the details and simplifying the paperwork I had to deal with. Even when I'm only there for a routine oil change, the staff is always friendly and helpful. These folks understand that an excellent Customer Service experience brings loyal patrons back over and over again. THANK YOU Scott (and the Car Sense staff) for taking such good care of my vehicle!
