Max Huijgen46,779The 100 most relevant people on G+ you really should check out. It´s impossible to select the people which contributes most to my experience on G+ so I´ll let Google do the dirty work.These 98 people (and 2 pages I helped founding) are the most relevant ones according to Google´s circle sort so they deserve a spot in the Friday sun.  If you´re not in it, be assured I really enjoy your posts and/or comments. I meet a lot of great people here, but this self imposed limit to 100 is just to make it easier for others to circle the whole bunch and check them out.2013-06-21 19:32:111001221459
Jim Warthman15,004Today I passed 15,000 followers! Thank you all very much for your kind appreciation and interest in my work! I am honored that 15,000 people enjoy my photography and have chosen to add me to their circles. I especially appreciate those of you who take the time to read my posts and comment on my work. I am truly humbled by this, and hope I can continue to share content that you’ll find interesting and worthy of being included in your circles.And special thanks to +Margaret Tompkins! I connected with Margaret soon after joining G+ and she has been mentoring me ever since. I credit my own G+ presence largely to Margaret’s wonderful influence!To commemorate this milestone, I’m sharing this Thank You Circle. Unfortunately, I can’t include all 15,000 of you in a circle - but I’ve selected those who’ve helped me on my G+ journey. This circle has some wonderful people who are highly engaging, interactive, thoughtful, and share outstanding content in their own streams.Last but not least, I’d love for you to introduce yourself in the comments below.Thank you all very much and, as always, Share and Enjoy! #Circleshare  #SharedCircles2013-06-18 14:34:0841343627

I Give Up
I started "ATTEMPTING" to delete my account here on G+ back in late June. Its now October (well its about to be) and despite several requests to the folks at google, they cant seem to make the delete function work.

Now before anyone goes off freaking, I had created a new account that I was working under. Basically, I wanted to start all over for various reasons.

For whatever reason, Google has decided to not let me go and now I am torn. Do I continue with this account..? or do I stick with the new one...?

It will be interesting to see how many peeps reply here.

Let me know...? as I fear this entire process since its been a cluster has caused more confusion than helped.

Waiting for the end
Something that everyone may not know about me is my love for music and the profound effect it has on me. When you look at my long post archive many will notice that the titles of what I write tend to be song titles. Thats usually because the song inspires me or has taken me back to a time or an event that causes me to ponder, re-live and then express (or write).

This song is no exception.

The lyrics speak to me.
About the past as well as the present. 

The hardest part of ending is starting again

If I were to get a tattoo, I think it would be this phrase or simply the word "Unforgiven." But I will save that for another time and another story.

The after Party at Pax-East, hosted by the Crystal Method
Taken at the Pax-East Party for Riot Games Players and Fans. The Crystal Method was our special guest. They played for a packed house. It was truly an amazing party! Scott Kirkland is seen here (Ken is out of frame for this shot).

Taken withe a D700, Hand held (Intentionally)... in fact all of the shots where to try and capture the action of the event. This is just a small sample of some of the shots I take for Riot. No, I dont shoot for Riot full time, I do something completely different. I volunteer to travel, meet our players, fans and Cosplayers. It's an absolute blast to meet everyone and to capture the events for Riot !!!

Next stop.... KOREA for LCS Semi and Finals !!!

I am trying to DELETE this account (yes the one I am sending this message from). Everytime I go into settings and select the delete function, the browser times out and returns a 500 error. This has been going on for two days now. I have tried; Chrome, IE, FireFox and Opera. All get the same result.

Please call me on the phone number listed with my account for more details or just go ahead and delete this account. (I am fine with either).

I have posted an error message on my stream for your review. Please help.

I recently decided to re-brand myself from a social media perspective. As a part of that I am starting over on all social platforms. G+ is the last one to get switched over. Along the path of change I have added a few new social sites and am expanding a bit.

So that's it.....

No drama, no sad story forcing me to leave.

Cause, I'm not. I am just moving to a new account where I can focus on my followers, start fresh and re-focus on sharing and interacting again.

I know.. its disappointing that there isn't more too it, but seriously that's it. Some times in life a clean slate is a good thing. This is one of those times for me.

I hope to see you all there.

I have decided its time for a fresh start. It's time to re-engage, share more photography and get back to what it was I was doing originally.

There is no other reason other than, I dont want to keep this old profile around. The numbers are meaningless as obviously I am willing to start all over. I dont like the mixture of the content I have shared and am ready to head into a new direction.

I have decided its time for a fresh start. It's time to re-engage, share more photography and get back to what it was I was doing originally.

There is no other reason other than, I dont want to keep this old profile around. The numbers are meaningless as obviously I am willing to start all over. I dont like the mixture of the content I have shared and am ready to head into a new direction.

Thus far 54 of my old followers have added me back ! 

THANKS !!!! for the continued support and the vote of confidence as I move forward.

I sincerely hope that more of you will follow me again as I sincerely look forward to ENGAGING with the people that truly follow, my old friends and the new ones I will meet along the way.

Your help in spreading the word is appreciated.

This is what you get when.....
you are on a social network you ignore in favor for others deemed more popular.

So, I have been re-inventing myself online and creating the social accounts I intend to focus on. I used to be a Flickr user. From that site I had been discovered and published in Seattle Met Magazine (My first full double page spread), Texas Tech University (oddly without them knowing I was an alum... I mean really why they hell would anyone ever go to Lubbock if you didnt go to Tech) and Digital Photo Pro.

So today, I went out there to update my profile (Been a user for 6 years) but I hadnt logged into my account in 3. What was waiting for me when I logged in...???

1- Offer from a NY Based Fine Art painter to do a painting from one of my prints.

2- An advertising company wanting to commission one of my images for a national ad campaign... more »

2- An advertising company wanting to commission one of my images for a national ad campaign (Ouch)

3- Yet another magazine looking for me to give them permissions to an image and get paid $

4- A gallery  in Seattle that wanted to hang my work

Suffice to say, Flickr has been REAL good to me in the past and I missed four opportunities because I have ignored it for other social platforms. (like this one). It should be noted that I have I have never been approached or contacted on G+ for permission to use or purchase any of my work.

Makes ya wonder..... especially when you are trying to get back into pushing your work again.

In all my years on G+ and with what was a very active follower base (My fault for backing off) I haven't made a penny on my presence nor reach. On Flickr, a site that I have put literally zero effort into, but used to share my images (no groups, little following etc... just shared) and I have not only made money, but gotten far more exposure there than any other site. Number 2 is 1X.com and then 500px.

Good thing I enjoy being retrospective and learning from failure. Otherwise I would have been bummed by  this discovery.

Now I am just focused.

5 Ways to Create Better Images Without Buying More Gear
Original Post By: Barry J Brady

You are a photographer. You love getting out there and doing your best to create great images. Photographers also love something else. Camera equipment. Sometimes you may find that you spend more time searching for a new lens, filter or accessory than actually photographing with it. When you meet other photographers you will hear them talking about the latest piece of equipment that has just launched.

As digital photographs become easier and easier to create, edit, and share, it’s also becoming easier to doubt the authenticity of photos. There have been quite a few stories in recent days of photojournalists, news organizations, and contest winners throwing their reputations away by using Photoshop to manipulate the truthfulness of photos

I just bought a new Nikon D810 (shows up this week) and a new 14-24 f2.8 and a GigaPan Pro.

Im getting ready for a trip to Canada (one of my favorite places... im visiting Toronto) and Korea to shoot Riot Games LCS Semi-Finals and World event.

Not much else going on... look me up on Instagram and Twitter. I'd love to see you all there. Soon, I will be making changes to this profile and my new web site will be out.

Stay tuned....

Visiting Maki
So today I was looking around, visiting some friends pages and landed on +Maki Silberberg page. There I noticed a shot she took from a nice little chapel in downtown Dallas, Texas.

This nice little place was designed by Phillip Johnson. The outside of the chapel is really Un-Inspiring. It looks like a torn toilet paper roll. However, on the simplistic inside there is some amazing stained glass.

This was my take on the famous little chapel.

Thanks Maki!

Close.... the hunt is on
So today, I ventured out into the dreaded jungle know as a "Dealership." despite packing a weapon and bad attitude, I was still accosted by the local tribesmen.

They were out for blood.

Fortunately my daughter and I made it  out alive. We did however have a second to get a picture with one of the locals before hacking our way out of the dealership.

I have always liked "Give me a TICKET Red"

Decisions... decisions :)

Friday the 13th and Baseball
For all of you LA Dodger Fans, I offer you a shot of Clayton Kershaw:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clayton_Kershaw

He threw a great game last night. We had AWESOME seats (4 rows from the field). So, equipped with my 400mm lens I managed to snag this shot.

I got a few others, but this was my shot for the night. I even got to catch a ball at the game. (that was cool. I have been to at least 100 pro games and never gotten a ball before).

So this is how I spent my Friday the 13th.... how about you..?

After 5 years of submissions, I am happy to say that I finally had my third image shared and published on OneExposure (1x.com). I have a TON of respect for this web site, the curated reviews and feedback needed to be included.

I can think so so many G+ Photographers that should be in 1X. I encourage you all to go take a look. Its a great site, community and forum for reviews and feedback.

While I hate to admit that one of my stories isnt my most shared/read/watched post... I do have to admit that this is funny and was a nice find.

Enjoy! and pass it around if you like it.

Dreaming
Many of my old followers know I am a muscle car guy. Prior to losing a TON of money in the real estate bust 7 years ago, I had two sports cars. In my efforts to recover from that bust and foot the bill for College for my son, I did the responsible thing, sold them and got me a KOmuter car :)

My 2003 Cobra SVT was a dream car. 650 hp, super charged v8, 3000 watts of Stereo and done up in "Give me a ticket red!" which it did plenty of times :)

Now, I am focused on my other dream car. A stingray. The 1973 Stingray is my favorite year.... up until this year. I have always wanted one and am now seriously looking at this baby. I just cant decide if I want white or yellow. (Im done with red)

:)

I hope to be able to get one. Im having a hard time finding what I want. this is what I m searching for.... maybe in electric yellow as well.... more »

METAL
So many here know I work at #riotgames . Everyday I have the esteemed pleasure of working with some of the most passionate, devoted and all around AWESOME peeps in the gaming business. I have to tell you.... I LOVE MY JOB.

At Riot we have several musicians and a composer. (Yes, a real composer). Interestingly, our composer is a Metal head. He and the team got together and created the fist real album from a fictitious Riot Band called "PentaKill".

If you are a metal guy, or just want to hear something completely different, check this out. The music, production quality and songs are truly amazing.

http://na.pentakillmusic.com/en/

It's free (just like our game) and its on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay and Spotify.

Take a look

Curious question...????

Negative Views....
For awhile now, like my friend +Max Huijgen I have tracked and done some statistical math on how Google's G+ Operates.

Now... granted its been awhile since I was a "regular" on the site (its getting better) several things have changed. Since my last serious effort at providing daily content on Google they have graciously added "Views" to our profiles.

The thing that I have found odd as that while my follower number vary from day to day, the views number seems to go down daily..?

Being that Google stated:

The number equals the number of times your content has been seen by other people, including your photos, posts, and profile page. 

I am real curious as to how this number goes in a negative direction..?

I am real curious as to how this number goes in a negative direction..?
If this is done like a regular web site the number should be relative to exposure and not based on active users. My first thought is that as people are "cleansed" or removed from G+ perhaps the view count is decremented..?

Does anyone know..?

Inquiring mind and all... its bugging me that there seems to be no direct correlation as to the drop. Sure they mention on their support page that the numbers aren't necessarily updated in real time (I get that) and there is some wiggle room in terms of accuracy... I guess I don't get the consistent drop. Perhaps its numerical retribution for being gone for so long :)  

I also wonder if this number was calculated form the beginning or from when then implemented it..?

Please note... none of this really matters at all. Its a simple curiosity as to how this site works (something I have always done, and kept some interesting data on). I don't like operational anomalies in transactional systems (software dork in me) and tend to ask why

Beautiful Abstraction
Another shot I took this last month at the Arcadia Arboretum. This is a macro close up of flowers pedals as they intertwine with each other.

While I was out shooting, since I didn't have a tripod with me, I decided to embrace the gentle breeze and see what I could get + it was a recon trip to the arboretum to see what is there and what gear I would need to shoot next time I go.

Fun trip, and got some nice shots despite not being properly geared. These have a very "Water color" feel to them that I like a great deal. Normally, I would be all about the macro look and detail, but found that the softer side of flowers is fun to capture as well.

My friend +Garry McCarthy is quite a photographer. I learn a great deal from looking at his images and really enjoy his work.

Take a look at this amazing shot. If you dont have Gary in your circles, you should. His work never disappoints.

This is one of those shots I wish I had in my portfolio

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
The Milky Way and Mars over Delicate Arch.  This is a self-image from my recent trip to Utah with +Phillip Colla.  Phil keeps inviting me to join him on these trips, and I'm happy to tag along and learn some of his secrets to master photography; hence the title of this picture.  On this evening, we hiked up to Delicate Arch, Utah's most iconic sandstone arch, for sunset, then happily watched every other person depart shortly thereafter, leaving the entire place to just us, the stars and the local wildlife.  We stayed almost the entire night, which gave us plenty of time to play around with several compositions and different light-painting techniques before hiking out in the pre-dawn darkness in time to catch the sunrise at Broken Arch.___My friend +Garry McCarthy is quite a photographer.

Iron Maiden
So... I posted in Dipro001's stream that I was an Iron Maiden Fan and that I was one of the official photographers for Maiden back during their Somewhere in Time tour. I shot seven locations for Stardate Productions back in the day. There was a doubter in the thread, nice dude, but kinda throwing caution to the wind. So, I thought I would set the record straight and share a few from the show. These are all of Bruce.

These images are almost 30 years old. The first show was in Sept 1986 near my birthday. What a present it was to get this gig.

Here are three shots of Bruce. Scans from some of my 8x10 archive prints. The gold on the bottom is exactly that, gold leaf embossed name and tour markers. I used to do this for portraits I shot and did this for all of my concert pictures.

Fun with Flowers
I recently went to the Arcadia Arboretum to shoot flowers. I enjoy taking pictures of flowers (I don't know why I don't do more of it?) Anyway, while out I decided to not pay the $50 fee for a tripod. It was windy so abstracts was going to be what I got (along with being able to recon the facility).

This was one of the images I captured.

Nikon D700
Nikkor 105mm Macro f2.8 Lens
Hand help (gulp)

Messages to me....
I saw this post and it resonated with me. Its something I learned in college (Minor in Psychology) that I have always found through experience to be true.

Positive notes of reinforcement effect the subconscious regardless of their origin. Much like inspirational quotes, surrounding yourself with reminders that "You" are a good person, or life, while at times hard is OK are a good thing.

Its much like looking at yourself in the mirror and thinking, "I look good today." That thought has the same mental benefit as hearing someone else say it. It boosts confidence, stimulates your brain and adds positive reinforcement.

I really liked this post and wanted to share it and thank +Dahn Yoga and +Kacie Quesenberry for the share and re-share.

A little positive in everyone's life is always a good thing.

So, remember.....

Waiting for the end
Something that everyone may not know about me is my love for music and the profound effect it has on me. When you look at my long post archive many will notice that the titles of what I write tend to be song titles. Thats usually because the song inspires me or has taken me back to a time or an event that causes me to ponder, re-live and then express (or write).

This song is no exception.

The lyrics speak to me.
About the past as well as the present. 

The hardest part of ending is starting again

If I were to get a tattoo, I think it would be this phrase or simply the word "Unforgiven." But I will save that for another time and another story.

If I were to get a tattoo, I think it would be this phrase or simply the word "Unforgiven." But I will save that for another time and another story.


This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone and the violent rhythm
And though the words sound steady something empty's within them

We say yeah with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
'Cause we're living at the mercy of the pain and the fear
Until we get it, forget it, let it all disappear

Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It's out of my control
Flying at the speed of light
Thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It's hard to let you go

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got

Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn't so

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got

What was left when that fire was gone?
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it's like moving on

And I don't even know what kind of things I said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead
So I'm picking up the pieces, now where to begin
The hardest part of ending is starting again

All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got
I'm holding on to what I haven't got
I'm holding on to what I haven't got
