Another from a model shoot I did. So much fun, and MC was great and easy to work with all afternoon! Just used Lightroom and CS5 to add a few little tweaks.

The FAB-u-lous +Chrysta Rae just wrapped up another stellar Scavenger Hunt. Looking through all the albums, EVERYONE brought their A+ game, and it was so awesome to see so many versions of 10 words! Here's my album of submitted photos.

Friends, this one is worth breaking my usual guidelines of posting photos only here...so worth the watch. Take 4.5 minutes and watch the video in this article.

For my favorite bestie +Macro Monday ( #macromonday ) friends, +Kelli Seeger Kim, +Kerry Murphy, and +Jennifer Eden!

For the TEXTURE sub-theme, I chose this photo because I've spent time staring at these tiny little guys being amazed at the visual texture of the shell, but tactile smoothness. The differentiation will mess with your mind! :) Thank you, friends for all that you do! 
Love you girls!

i need more zoom power...so I admit this is not a great shot technically because of lack of a killer zoom lens. These guys were easily a mile out, so I'm just happy I got what I did with my 20-100mm lens :) So much fun though to have seen this in person with my own eyes in nature! So I wanted to share this photo :)

to wrap 2012, I'd like to say a very special thanks to +Kelli Seeger Kim  and +Kerry Murphy who this year, showed me macro after macro and gave me a theme to which to post and from which to learn. Turns out it's one of my top favs to get up close and macro with my camera. :) Thanks for the inspiration ladies, your comments, friendship, and (while this particular photo isn't technically tight enough to be a macro) taught me the art of a short DOF and how totally gorgeous the unseen details of things are. :)

Just so you all don't think I've fallen completely off the face of the earth. One of my fav shots from shooting for a friend's x-mas card. p.s. - i'm thinking i really need color calibration software...I'm considering this my warm-up for +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt, and just posting one from the pack of the day.

This was a side project I did while taking +Robin Griggs Wood's GMAPP Mentorship. She laid down the gauntlet eagerly challenged me to recreate my week one photo having learned something from week 2 and with the feedback I've received. So I re-created the cookie concept each week based on Robin's lesson and watched the transformation.

I highly recommend this type of project for anyone feeling stuck, etc. It was a brilliant adventure in knowing my subject and therefore being much more able to focus on creating an artistic story using all the elements we learned.

This is my final post following the amazing experience that was +Robin Griggs Wood's 12 week G+ Mentorship ART Program for Photographers. To say I've learned a few things would be an understatement. I can count on one hand the number of times a life experience has resulted in a messy pile of papers on the desk suddenly flying into an organized filing system of coherence. I like metaphors...the papers are my thoughts in this scenario. Each week's lesson brought amazing new challenges and "OHHHHHHH!!!! So THAT'S what that means! THAT'S what I've been trying to do!" moments. I would go out and shoot, upload to the computer, and often go back out and re-shoot the same subject with a better idea of the angle I wanted or a detail I'd missed. 

Having these 12 weeks with such positive guidance and inspiration from my classmates has been wonderful and I have been so inspired, not only by this group, but by the entire G+ community through seeking out images that conveyed the week's lesson and recognizing them as they showed up in my stream with a deeper appreciation...like drinking a glass of 10 year aged Silver Oak after a lesson from a sommelier on how to appreciate the subtleties that can separate great from good in a wine. And not in a critical way, but in appreciation of what I'm seeing. Because not everyone likes Silver Oak...but it's really hard to not appreciate it once you know the "governing structure" surrounding wines.

I'm reaching for a higher standard following completion of this program. It's pushed me in the most amazing ways possible. I'm reaching for more not to please anyone else, but to please myself. That's a gift Robin has given me. Learning to be tickled pink with one of my photographs and share it with the G+ world...and understanding that photographs are like resumes...yes, there are some basic guidelines one should follow: but there will always be another opinion from another person suggesting a change or shift that could alter the image to say something else.

I can respect those critiques: and if they offer thoughts, suggestions, views that enhance my artistic vision of the photograph, I'm free to incorporate them and use them as tools. Photographs, like resumes, will never be perfect: but they can reach a point where they most accurately reflect your inner vision of a moment. 

I have one photo left to finish a "side project" I embarked on during this mentorship. When I've completed that, I'll post the rest of those photographs into this album. Following shooting a cookie during week 1, +Robin Griggs Wood -laid down the gauntlet- enthusiastically encouraged me to re-shoot the cookie if i felt so called, following the critique from week 1 and having Week 2's lesson in front of me. Talk about "ah hah" moments. I may end up with an album with hundreds of images of cookies thanks to this challenge. It will become one of my things: because by utilizing the same subject highlighting different lessons and aspects of photography, it's all gelled extremely well to create a coherent body of knowledge about art and how it manifests in photography. Robin, thanks for bringing down the hammer truly being such a supportive, wonderful force in my development as I get closer and closer to feeling I can call myself "a photographer." :)

Agreed, it's perfect! So pretty, yet so ouchy.  Most importantly, there's just enough information to tell the story.  In fact, I think you could go without the explain-it-all caption, because the story in the image is so dang rich!   :-)
