Is it Spring Yet?
Yes, I know it's Spring already, but this is a little commiseration for those of you who are experiencing later-than-average cold weather. We're just starting to have a bit of warmth ... yum ... :o))

Western Lowland Gorilla, one of the great apes and currently listed as "critically endangered" (and completely out of its element in this snowy scene I've made here ... ;o))

And since +Alex Lapidus says apes can be included in #monkeymonday, I'll give a shout out to them here ... :o) ( +Monkey Monday) with thanks to +Alex Lapidus and +Jetski

This goes under the heading of: Things I would have missed had I not been staring at the world through my lens ...

This tiny desert butterfly is called a "San Emigdio Blue" (Plebejus emigdionis) and its full wingspan is only about 1 cm at it's widest point. He was the dickens to catch (in a shot), too, because he was very active and would dash off as soon as I got near enough to catch him in macro ... ;oD

"The Guardian of Tintagel"

Letting my imagination run wild with a spirit guardian of King Arthur's old home.

My imagination has a tendency to do that ... ;o7

The FINDING YOUR VISION mentorship is ready for sign-ups!
You must sign up on the original post only, not at any reshares. Click through to the original post below or go to +teresa pilcher's profile stream to find the post.

Sign up will be open until Saturday the 10th March. Selections will begin on the 11th March for the Mentorship beginning Monday the 19th March 2018.
The FINDING YOUR VISION mentorship is ready for sign-ups!


This is a special program designed specifically for beginner to intermediate Street Photographers. (Please note "Beginner" means you've shot some Street Photography prior to taking this mentorship)

Most people think that Photography is all about cameras and lenses. It actually about ideas and creativity, it’s about seeing the world in a different way, finding a unique way to express yourself and finding your own personal vision.

In this mentorship I will share my understanding of the elements that make a strong image. Firstly by analysing images captured. Secondly by increased awareness through mindful practice at Street. By the end of the mentorship, participants will have a better understanding of these elements, that should be reflected in their images. Also a better understand principles of design and their own personal vision.

This is a free mentorship is offered through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers


I will be taking on a handful of people for an 8 week on-line mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I’ve been taking photos for 35 years, and have specialised in Street Photography for the past 3 years.
I’m a Sphere 2 graduate from the Arcanum. Most of my Street Photography has been self taught, but also formally through workshops and the Arcanum.

The applicants will need to be already have experience shooting Street Photography.
You will need to be available to shoot at street at least once a week for 6 of the 8 week program.
Assignments will be posted on a Friday so you need have time available to complete them each week.
You own/ have access to a camera that you can shoot in Automatic / Aperture Priority/ Shutter Priority.
Processing in Adobe Lightroom or similar is preferred but not essential.



PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a technical workshop. You can use any kind of camera that you can shoot on aperture /shutter priority. Either point and shoot, DSLR or mirrorless, you will need to be familiar with your own camera. Processing will covered, but please do not outlay any money for software.

Sign up will be open until Saturday the 10th March. Selections will begin on the 11th March for the Mentorship beginning Monday the 19th March 2018.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking street photos 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) Level of Street Photography experience
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation
