In to my eyes of creativity
Flows, deep down under..

The dark depths of my psyche..
The light,shadows and blur

Forming a tunnel vision
Erased are time space and awareness

Final graduation album and #PLUSpost  

Thank you for making it all possible, +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers +Alex Lapidus +Heiko Mahr and all the wonderful mentors!

You may have noticed that I was in this mentorship program called Blur and Unsharp Photography- Guided Play 2016. I missed the opportunity last year since I was already in another mentorship when this was offered, but kept wondering.. "Hmm.. what other camera technique could out there be any way ?" To my pleasant surprise, I was introduced to this Pandora's box of toys and techniques that were scientifically designed to take one's photographic pursuit to yet another level, except much higher!

I am very thankful for all the inspiration, knowledge, hard work and help that were offered by Alex and all the other mentors. Never had to wait for longer than a short duration to receive amazing in depth evaluation after I posted my work!

Are you looking for a creative outlet? Tired of producing predictable sharp images? Yes?.. Well look no further! +Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2016 is an incredibly liberating 8 week mentorship program run by +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers​ +Robin Griggs Wood​  and lead by the incredibliy talented +Alex Lapidus​ 
You will be amazed and so inspired by Alex’s insight and knowledge. His generosity of time and energy is stupendous!
For the past eight weeks, I was privileged to participate and share in such a dynamic mentorship with about 35 talented participants who inspired me every day. During this time, we learned many camera techniques for achieving blur including multiple exposures, post-processing, and various filter techniques as well as ,“out of the box” experimenting with wineglasses, free lensing, plastic wrap and vasoline! ( yes, vasoline)
I would encourage those of you, who haven't already, to follow +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers and watch for the next announcement for sign ups.
Thanks again to +Alex Lapidus​  and all of the wonderful moderators for such a liberating and exhilarating experience!

Blurs and Unsharp Photography - Guided Play 2016
Week 8 - Plus Post and Graduation Album

+G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers
+Robin Griggs Wood

The past 8 weeks under the leadership of +Alex Lapidus and amazing mentors and mentorship participants I have learned to approach photography in the blurred and unsharp world. New techniques in the use of the camera, in camera modes and post processing led to amazing adventures and a new artistic approach to photography. At times, it felt odd, uncomfortable and I was unsure about the journey, but in the end it was an amazing experience with fantastic leadership and support from +Alex Lapidus , mentors and the participants themselves. Look for the next Blurs and Unsharp Photography mentorship and apply to sign up for a truly wonderful experience in photography.

At the beginning of summer +Alex Lapidus was kind enough to accept me into his Blurs and Unsharp Photography Guided Play 2016 that was made possible thanks to +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers . For eight weeks we have been going through series of assignments leading to intentionally blurry images obeying only one strict rule: ‘go out and shoot’. We have learned how to defeat anti-shake mechanisms modern cameras have, to shoot in low light and to create low light, to intentionally move our point of view and to capture moving subjects. We also practiced creation of such effects in post-processing. We tried free-lensing, photographed through optically imperfect objects, used smoke and mirrors.

Every task was introduced with perfectly written essay, well illustrated and referenced and finally discussed by the group. The G+ closed community provided a friendly structure for critiques and exchanges of information. Everyone had a chance to discuss the ideas, ask questions, admire the results.

It has been a beautiful and inspiring journey. A huge thank you to all our mentors, to +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers to +Robin Griggs Wood and to our guide +Alex Lapidus.

My travel log is below.

Week 9 Onward!: Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2016
For the last 8 weeks I have been busily learning and having fun under the guidance of +Alex Lapidus and his many helpers in the Blurs & Unsharp Photography: Guided Play mentorship. My creativity has been unleashed as I learned how to zoom, pan, blur, swirl, twirl and build fun composites. Oh, and to do these things on purpose - not as an accident. Photographs do not have to be sharp to be good. And most of all, I relearned the spirit of play in my photography. "It's never too late to have a happy childhood!" - Chieko Okasaki

Thank you Alex for all of your energy, support & challenge! I highly recommend this mentorship to all of my friends out there the next time it's offered. This is a part of the wonderful +G+Mentorship Program for Photographers - a program of photographers helping others to grow and learn. Thanks to +Alex Lapidus & +Robin Griggs Wood for all of their hard work along with too many to name for fear of missing one. Thank you also to all of my co-mentees. I hope we'll keep on as friends and creatives.

Graduation Plus Post - 2016 Blurs & Unsharp Photography Mentorship Program

For the past several months I have been participating in +Alex Lapidus mentorship, made possible by wonderful +Robin Griggs Wood and +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
Let me start by saying that this was one of the most inspiring and eye opening photographic experiences I have ever experienced. And it was fun! Alex and many of the other mentors shared with us their art history knowledge, tips for various shooting and processing techniques. The whole community was extremely inspiring and very supportive of each other. It was amazing to see how everybody's creativity exploded and continues to spill all over G+ thanks to this program.
I can't say enough good things about this program, and I highly recommend it to everyone. In fact, I may sign up again myself :-)

Below are few of my favorite images I created for this mentorship

Blurs and Unsharp Photography - Guided Play 2016
Eight weeks went by so quickly and left me with a group of extraordinary photographer friends and some very cool tools and techniques to add to my repertoire. From panning, textures, multiple exposures to wild and crazy camera movements, I have learned so many things that has opened my eyes to newer horizons. My photography will never be the same again - and that's a good thing.
I want to thank +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers​ by +Alex Lapidus​ and +Robin Griggs Wood​ and everyone else involved for this wonderful opportunity and all the time they are putting in for helping other photographers. As a community G+ is richer by the minute through their efforts. And a special thanks to +Sandra Nesbit​ and +Roxanne Bouche' Overton​ for being my inspiration and encouraging me to join this program.

Graduation Plus Post - 2016 Blurs & Unsharp Photography Mentorship Program

( My album of favorite images I created and submitted during the program )

Exciting, fun, liberating, inspiring and amazing!!!! These are just a few of the many positive words that describe my learning experience from the recently concluded 8-week Blurs & Unsharp Photography Mentorship Program (2016), that I had the privilege of being a participant. This program led by the the multi-talented +Alex Lapidus, is run by the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers headed by +Robin Griggs Wood. For eight weeks we studied, learned, practiced and discovered the beauty and excitement of blur and unsharp photography. Huge thanks to our lead instructor +Alex Lapidus who is exceptionally inspiring, knowledgeable and very encouraging. The lessons, reading and assignments were top rate. In addition we had able moderators and helpers that supported us during the learning process throughout the program. More importantly, we had great fun while learning in a very safe interactive, online community environment. Every week we were continually inspired, motivated and amazed by each other's creativity and work submissions.
I'm very grateful for the opportunity provided by +Robin Griggs Wood of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
With the new techniques and knowhow learned from this program, I have more confidence now to try new subjects and to take my photography to another level where I can express myself more. I will still be photographing and sharing my favorite subjects but this time with more variety in processing.
As I have consistently said in my prior plus posts, I highly recommend this program. Follow the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers page and continue to check out their upcoming mentorship programs and how to apply.

Blurs and Unsharp Photography G+ Mentorship - Graduation Plus Post

All good things come to an end, and so it is with the most amazing Blurs and Unsharp Photography G+ Mentorship put on by +Alex Lapidus +Robin Griggs Wood  and +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. Many many thanks to the three of them, and all of the moderators for this wonderful, hugely informative, educational and fun mentorship.

Over 8 weeks we learned a variety of techniques to help us think outside of our "everything must be sharp" boxes. I personally found this such a freeing, fun and artistic way of seeing things. It expanded my creativity enormously and has given me a whole new set of tools to bring to the table each time I go out shooting. I've had many FB friends come up to me and tell me that they are really enjoying the blurry images I have posted - who would have thought. It is not as easy as it looks to get an effective image. I'm excited to keep playing with these new techniques and growing my skills in this area.

I want to also thank all of my amazing fellow mentees who helped make this a safe, positive and creative learning space!!!

A must take mentorship for all!!

G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers's Collections
Story

Passing along the gift of knowledge and experience.
Introduction


Teaching is the best way to learn.

–––––

Welcome to the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers, organized and run by the program directors, Robin Griggs Wood, Ron Clifford, Alex Lapidus and founded by Randy J. Braun.

The G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is an on-line, mini-mentorship program that gives emerging amateur photographers the opportunity to reach out to working professionals, gaining both technical, artistic expression or career advice in a friendly forum. 

The mentorships are free to active, interactive members of the Google+ community and are based on a selection process at the discretion of the individual mentors volunteering their time. Add, and stay tuned to, the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers Page, as well as the profiles of Robin Griggs Wood, Ron Clifford and Alex Lapidus to watch for periodic sign-up posts. 

The qualifications for prospective mentees are that you are active here on G+, with not more than three [3] days between Public posts, and that you are interactive with the community, thanking people who comment on your own posts and getting out of your own stream and plussing and commenting on the works of others. This ensures that you will be actively involved in any mentorship once chosen. (Read more tips here: Hints on how to be selected for one of the mentorship programs here at G+)

The sign-ups fill pretty quickly once posted, so do keep an eye out. You increase your chances of being selected with high activity here and high interactivity. (Read this tip here: How do be notified of the next available mentorship)

More Professional Photographers are needed to mentor! To become a mentor or to discuss what is possible for your mentorship here, please contact Robin Griggs WoodRon Clifford or Alex Lapidus

Basic Outlines For Types of Mentorships:

These are simply suggestions and can be added to or modified to help you create a vibrant program that suites your specific area of study or style. Feel free to ask questions about anything in regard to the program, getting started and running a successful program.

Below you will find brief outlines for the different types of mentorships:      

STANDARD: technical; 1 mentor; 4-6 "mentees" (small); 15-20 (large); 8 weeks duration; covers the BEGINNING or INTERMEDIATE technical usage of the camera.

TEAM: technical or artistic; 2 mentors; 4-12 "mentees" (small); 30-50 (large); 2-8 weeks duration; covers material in accordance with the mentors' specific areas of expertise, where the strengths of each mentor balance and complement each other

ONE-ON-ONE: technical or artistic; 1 mentor; 1 "mentee"; indefinite, but definable, duration; covers whatever the mentor would like to pass on to another

GUEST: technical and/or artistic; up to 8 different mentors, one mentor per week; 4-12 mentees (small); 30-50 (large); up to 8 weeks duration, relative to the number of "guest" mentors available; covers material in accordance with the mentors' specific areas of expertise, can be themed (mentors are chosen based on correlative areas of expertise) or non-themed (each mentor chooses what they want to teach)

SPECIALIZED: a program that will, for various reasons, take longer or require special circumstances to complete.  A great example is Darryl Van Gaal's Astrophotography Program. Other examples might be underwater photography, travel photography, shooting in winter, desert, or rain forest. Duration may last a few months because of proximity, travel or season.


As a mentor, you have the following options as to the duration of your mentorship:

A Regular term, topical program, in a workshop type environment with a specific focus. This is much like that which has already been introduced by other mentors. This will likely be the most popular style of program and will include regular assignments and check-in times.  Each session or week will build on the other and work toward improving a specific area of study. Creative vision, building a cohesive series, landscapes, macro expressions, night photography, portraits with natural light, etc. Duration will be from 6 to 12 weeks and have weekly check-ins, working albums for the group members and can include hangout sessions, if you choose.

A Short term, subject specific, program addressing an individual topic in photography. This is ideal for teaching a particular technique or a concept, such as the relationship between f-stop, shutter speed and ISO, how perspective influences perception, HDRI, the use of plug-ins for increasing creativity along the lines of an artistic vision, etc. Duration can be from 1 to 4 sessions (weeks) and can be extended, if there is enough interest for the Mentor to add more content.

Another option for mentoring is live post-processing hangout workshops: These can be included as a portion of the regular mentorships or as a stand-alone program to encourage post-processing as an integral part of the creative vision. This will require a certain level of confidence and experience using specific programs. This is already incorporated, as a one-on-one and in small groups, in some programs. Examples for this would be: Lightroom workflow Import to upload; cleaning up images in post; portrait retouching techniques; plug-ins; etc. The list is long for the experienced post-processing mentor.  It is advised that you avoid going too in-depth in this since it is a valuable revenue stream for experienced teachers.


These are general outlines, but your mentorship can be anything you want it to be! We are also creating mentorship templates for those individuals who want to help mentor others, but need more guidance on how to create a mentorship.

More Professional Photographers are needed to mentor! To become a mentor or to discuss what is possible for your mentorship here, please contact Robin Griggs WoodRon Clifford or Alex Lapidus.
