Eric Raeber1,168,219I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0013

Volkan DOBRİCELİ15Mobile PhotographersMobile Photography -- or as I call it  #Mobilography  -- is an artform that, happy to report, has flourished here on Google+. This circle of mobile photographers is not food and cats. It is art, it is creativity, it is beauty and content. Some of the individuals in this circle are film and DSLR photographers as well. The phone camera though is a regular and equally legitimate camera to use in their photography and documentation of their worlds.If you have been notified of this post, you are in the circle.Crowd SourcingI am taking suggestions for people to add to this circle for the future. If you are a mobile photographer, or know a mobile photographer, that isn't in this circle, please mention them here and include a link to a gallery of work.You are not required to share this circle to get into it. I can't stand that gimmick. Share it if you want people to know about our work.#MobilePhotography   #Mobilography   #Mobilographers   #MobilePhotographers   #CircleShare   #SharedCircle  2015-03-26 15:02:26471000

Matt Evans6,231The Richie Benaud Circle (3)Hey legends, this is my 3rd updated share of my Richie Benaud circle, which is filled with everyone who has left a comment on one of my images. I usually share it every 3 months or so.Welcome to all my new commenters :) I'll be sharing this once again after the 12th month (June) then I'll be resetting and starting all over again.It's easy to just click a button to + 1, but it takes a little more effort to comment (which is ironic since I don't comment on much). But I like to share this circle just to say a huge thanks to everyone who has found the time to flaunt those fingers across those keys. Really appreciate it. Stay awesome everybody :)#circleshare   #circles   #circleoftheday   #circleoflegends   #richiebenaud2015-03-23 06:08:01340000

Gailen Mapes83,662Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera J-L - 14 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-14 13:41:06177002

Dubie Bacino129,238Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (17th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me, the best place is my appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU, connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara. If not, check it out, it's the new social network that pays you revenue for your online activity! -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

The Nyryx Data Center

I've been on a special mission for #alienabductionfriday  this week, and the good news is that I was able to gain unprecedented access to the famous Nyryx Data Center, in the heart of the Fornax Cluster.  You can see Their famous Data Towers, reporting in realtime on the doings of ten thousand worlds.  The bad news is that I was unable to achieve an exit; I am being held here indefinitely.  The weather is fine, the mechanics appear to be on duty, but They say there is no pilot for my return craft.  So I've pirated a signal from a fellow abductee's communicator to report to you in the meantime :-).

We have another terrific program just announced from the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers: The Single Frame: Introduction to Cinematic Storytelling, from +Morgana Creely! I had the pleasure of "visiting" with Morgana by Hangout, and this is going to be a fabulous experience for the right people. Check out her profile and her description of the program, and be sure to sign up on the original post.

The “Single Frame: Introduction to Cinematic Storytelling” mentorship is ready for sign-ups!
 
This is a special program introducing some of the compositional elements of visual storytelling through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I will be taking on a handful of people for a six 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!
 
Hi I’m Morgana, a Photographer and author, and I’ve always been passionate about creating images that tell stories, and helping other photographers find their own storytelling voice. You can find out more about what I do over on my website at www.imagecinematic.com


 
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a technical workshop and this is NOT a course for beginners. 


 
You will be expected to own and know how to use a DSLR, basic lighting principles and have access to artificial lighting (Studio, speedlight, even practical lighting such as desk lamps would be fine. You will also need access to and a basic working knowledge of post processing software such as Photoshop or Lightroom.
 
Images used for example during this course will not necessarily be family friendly or safe for work. Whilst I ask that images of nudity or violence are not posted to this course, examples and course content may include dark or adult themes.
 
Selections will begin March 30th, 2015 AEST for the mentorship beginning April 10, 2015


 
These are the selection criteria:
 
• You must own and know how to use a DSLR, basic lighting principles and have access to and a basic working knowledge of PS or LR. 


 
• You must be taking 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.

• You must have a sense of humour, a willingness to give and take constructive criticism, and not be offended by dark or adult themes.


 
To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here:  [https://plus.google.com/+MorganaCreely/posts/hvFvhFQGirs] 
(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) Favourite film and stills photography genres

4) What you want to get out of this mentoring course

5) Previous non-technical art, photography or cinematography studies

6) Amount of time you have available for participation___We have another terrific program just announced from the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers: The Single Frame: Introduction to Cinematic Storytelling, from +Morgana Creely!

The Weight of the Worlds

It's tough to be the responsible one.  Always on the go from planet to planet; supervising in turn your lazy or overzealous underlings; worried about the health of your specimens, and their survival in their natural habitats...  Yeah, building and maintaining a major galactic zoo is not for the faint of heart (or whatever other organ you may rely on).

Fire Dance

On the fifth planet of the Albireo system, in the constellation Cygnus, the Darkness lasts for centuries.  Albireo V makes its extended elliptical orbit around the dance of two tightly-coupled suns; after 483 years in the cold, it makes its dive through the inner system, and its ancient race of inhabitants celebrates the Fire Dance.  Our own abductees throw off their shackles, and the world is renewed in the Light.

Many of you have seen my Madagascar photos (album at https://plus.google.com/photos/+AlexLapidus/albums/5933913563025170673 ).  In case you haven't seen +Linda Villers', her Madagascar album is at https://plus.google.com/photos/+LindaVillers/albums/5934094655406531329?sort=1 .

Wait, You're Not a Tree...

This cute little brown-fronted lemur hopped out of the tree and landed on +Alex Lapidus's shoulder for a bit. This guy is from Lemur Island at Vakona Lodge next to Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar. The guides bring bananas for the lemurs, so they are quite friendly. It is quite a jolt when one of them jumps out of a tree to land on you since they normally come at you from the side or the back and perch on your camera backpack! Have a wonderful week everyone...

We're still accepting applications -- be sure to go to the original post!  This is a great opportunity if you've been shooting on automatic and would like to have more control over your photography.

Sign up here for the Camera Basics: Beyond Automatic 3 mentorship!


►►► Read the instructions before you sign up! ◄◄◄

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you get to know your camera better and be able to move into Manual shooting mode. A group of mentors will be taking on a handful of people for a 6-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

We have assembled a very able group of quality, knowledgeable and caring photographers from the Google+ community who want to share their understanding and experience with you.


PLEASE NOTE: This is a camera BASICS workshop only, designed to help an individual past shooting on Auto mode exclusively. It will cover how to use the various manual options for DSLR cameras and some "point and shoot" cameras that have a dedicated Manual mode. Do not apply for this workshop if your camera does not have a Manual mode. 

Group size is LIMITED.

Signups will be open for several days, and are not first-come first-served.  Selections will be announced by Thursday, Feb 26th, and the first lesson post will be Saturday, Feb 28th. You will need to have the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers page circled to receive the private message, if you are selected.

Darkness

The Darkness is a paradox.  From the outside, it appears to be compact, bounded.  From the inside, there is no escape -- no spacetime path that can result in emergence -- and it is therefore endless.  From the outside, objects that fall towards the Darkness never completely disappear; as their speed grows, their fall appears to an observer to slow.  Yet within a falling object, you can be almost instantly engulfed, dissociated into the purest quantum information.  When you approach the Darkness and begin the long fall...then it must be #alienabductionfriday !

One of many fabulous images from +Adam Woodworth -- NOT MY PHOTO!  Please pay Adam a visit and check out his fabulous landscape and night sky photos.

Whaleback Lighthouse Sunrise
New Hampshire

The frigid temperatures were promising for sea smoke this morning but I think the winds were a little too high or the temps weren't cold enough to generate huge amounts of sea smoke, but it was still a beautiful sight when the sun rose over the clouds and lit up the sea smoke with a warm glow.  The temp was around 6 degrees, which is 10 or 15 degrees warmer than it has been when I've been out in the morning recently, but the winds, even a light wind at this temp, were brutal and made it feel much colder.___One of many fabulous images from +Adam Woodworth -- NOT MY PHOTO!  Please pay Adam a visit and check out his fabulous landscape and night sky photos.
