Finally reveals are here. 140 images all about "Knot"
We are officially on DAY ONE of REVEALS
from the 19TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 300 Photographers
I give you 7 items to shoot
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days.
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*KNOT*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways.
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills,
gives you a huge audience,
and lets everyone celebrate each other's successes.
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+.
Support, encouragement, friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed.
We become a family over the course of the round.

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited.
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images
and put thought into them and tried their best.
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*KNOT*" album,
1 item seen in 140 different ways.

This is my dearest friend +Colleen Maxwell who has been a friend for 40+ years. She inspired me to join Google+, during beta. A veteran, a strong advocate for the dogs in the world and a world traveler. Right this minute, following recovery from a health scare, she is exploring New Zealand.

Today, there is a Google Create action to acknowledge the women who inspire us.
Thanks, +Isabelle Fortin !

So for this week's theme, SMILES I thought about stepping out of my comfort zone, and photographing some smiles on people. And then, instead, I saw this fine fellow grinning at me, and I do have a fondness for skulls and steampunk. Bingo! Another week done.

Is street photography your favorite thing ever? Are you willing to spend the time to go next level? If so, this is probably right up your alley.

I would jump in and do it myself, but with working full-time and going back to school and the rest of my life I don't think I could make the time commitment.

The learning that happens photographer to photographer here on G+ changed my life for the better and definitely advanced my art.

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)

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 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 just over 30 years, and have specialised in Street Photography for the past 2 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 11th March. Selections will begin on the 12th March for the Mentorship beginning Sunday the 19th March 2017.

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:

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Level of Street Photography experience

February is cold in New York City, even without snow. But the bright blooms on this sidewalk remind me of the promise of spring, of hot houses and and warmer days to come.

Deep inside the Rockefeller Center, In New York City, this stairway entranced me, with the lights from above, the lights reflecting on the smooth marble walls, and the lights reflecting off the brass handrail. Oh yes, I played with these lights (and my Canon) for quite a while.
