Rusty Ferguson0۝►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►The Power Ball, V7 from +Rusty FergusonNew Version 4-24-14 To Improve Your Engagement & Stream◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄۝A good shared circle will not only help you to grow your following and increase your engagement, it will also provide you with some quality people that you will be happy to have in your stream. For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people. It is constantly updated.  Send people in my circles or communities invites and other spam and you’ll soon find yourself blocked. If they are not following you, I really dislike that.  If you’re doing it, I will know and you will soon be gone.I don’t need to be the number one most shared circle to the point that it means loading you up with a ton of people I wouldn’t follow. I won’t do it.This is a circle made up of mostly of those that are known to share circles. However there are also over 100 profiles with incredible content or promote worthy causes. Most profiles are from those that have shared my circles in the past.To remain in this Circle do this:Plus this post.   Comment on this postShare this CircleAdd this Circle to your circles When you get re-shares of circles that you share, you’ll find that you are in more circles.  It is in your best interest to share it to your stream and tell others about the benefits of shared circles. Are You New to Circle Sharing?Here are some quick tips for you. When you add a circle, many of the people in it will add you back.  Many more will if you have a profile picture of your face. To further improve on that complete your tagline and employment fields found in your profile. Instead of saying you work for IBM or Walgreen’s tell us something about you in that field. What you do at your job or what you’d like to do. It doesn’t matter. What I want to know is what you are interested in on Google Plus.  You’re profile should tell us about what kinds of post you make.The other day, someone told me some of the people that add the circle will delete it. She’s right, they will. So what you need to do is engage with the people you add. Leave comments on their post. When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important. Google is trying to get us to improve our postings. I believe that’s the main reason they recently add2014-04-24 14:03:33454124110119CC G+

Gailen Mapes62,357Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 of 30Note: 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-09 10:48:3515210216CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-04 15:53:284915968104CC G+

Dustin W. Stout17,341Thank You for Engaging Weekly Shared CircleThis week I've gotten a litte more picky with those I add to this weekly shared circle of engagers. I figured if I'm going to be recommending these people, I better be recommending the people who really deserve it. These fine folks have not only engaged in conversation on one or more of my posts in the last week, but they have also been very pleasant to engage with. So to those included-- thank you for your conversation! And to those not included - drop me a comment this week!  #MuchBetterMondays  2013-07-08 19:30:3614019412CC G+

Blue Hill Bay rain cloud reflections
This is the big front yard. Hard to get to because that side of the road is mostly private- except in the off season. It was a beautifully calm afternoon in between rain showers and there wasn't even a breeze out there. I like how fibonacci patterns are visible in the ripples. The only sounds were loons. #Mainethewaylifeshouldbe #Maine   #seascape   #haveaniceday

Fallen Log with Ice Beads, Acadia.
I've been dying to make a new photo that I like for a bit now. Been thinking about it kind of a lot lately whereby- when you first start making pictures you photograph everything with mixed results but everything looks amazing to your new camera. After a while you become more selective of what to photograph and learn to do it dependably well. Then after even more time goes by and you don't just want to make the same photograph that you made last year over and over again, it becomes harder and harder to be selective of what to focus on. The graph of that would look like a bell curve. I feel like that's where I am now, and it's sometimes troubling because I'd rather make 3 pretty good shots a week than 3 a month. Maybe I just need to get out more and off the island more. Yesterday I was determined to make a photograph that I like- had a great walk in... more »

Justin Sprague's Dock and Gear at Bass Harbor, Maine.
(1.) Continuing with the lobster industry landscapes. I've been looking to photograph something else for a while now, I live in a lobstering neighborhood, I work on a lobster boat- 1+1= why not. So far these are the big overviews. I've posted a bunch of iPhone stuff from the boat, but time to get the big camera into the mix more. If it weren't for the fishy fingers...
(2.) I got into an embarrassing fight on the internet today with this dumb-ass over photography. Pretty much I strode up behind him online and smashed a bottle full of empty bytes over his head- because he mad me real mad. Which is embarrassing and a total loss of cool. But I just don't see why it's so important for some people to talk about other peoples methods- as if theirs are so much better. Whatever floats your boat right? Arg! Whatever. But if... more »

Old Percy.
 A very rare specimen of the exceedingly elusive Deer/Moose. Today's #Photoshop  practice where I took a moose skull and deer antlers and digitally taxidermy'd them together. The idea was to practice compositing layers and blending and refining selections. I never really need Photoshop much for regular landscapes but sometimes I see some amazingly inspiring composites out there that inspire me to check out the process. Julieanne Kost is one of my favorite nature scape compositors and sometimes I think that people like that are the real artists: http://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/ 
Have a good one!

Scale Study #2
Sometimes it's fun to play with shapes and light with the camera. For this one I saw the line and photographed it thinking that it could represent a coast line from a satellite kind of thing. Later on the big screen it began to look like a cliff that Alex Hunnold would free climb (scale) somewhere out west. Then I named the series of images Scale Study which made me think it could also be a close up section of alligator skin. Or maybe something else entirely. I used to practice my scales on guitar for hours so this was just a fun little practice session with the camera yesterday morning. What you want to see here all depends on the scale you choose to imagine it in. Have a nice day.

Mellow Tones Over Mitchell Marsh.
From a while back, taking a wade with the kit a couple coves down from here.
Had the opportunity to check out a couple of classes over at CreativeLive for Photoshop Week last week, and I now want to be a compositer. Watching Julie Anne Kost make incredible layered scenes is definitely inspiring but hats off to Lindsay Adler as teacher of the week over there, she may have that funny Long Island accent but she can really teach retouching. Awesome!

Cold Coast Cape Cod.
Went to the Cape for Ma's 82'nd birthday party last week and the weather was fantastic for some beach photography (20 degrees f and blowing hard). Apparently there have been numerous Snowy Owl sightings down there so on five separate occasions people asked me if I was there to photograph them. They were always so disappointed when I said "no, I'm photographing the landscape". The last person who responded so dejectedly with a sad "oooh" actually started me thinking that maybe I should just get a long lens and try to satisfy everyone, either that or just make up a story that will please them, cause honesty didn't seem like the best policy in those cases. Weird huh!? Oh well.

Wanna take a ride on the boat? Here's a best of 2013 video from the 36' lobster boat Never Enough from Bass Harbor, Maine. Thanks for the ride Daniel Closson- http://nateparkerphotography.com/blog/2014/1/2013-and-my-life-as-a-sternman-and-photographer

Mitchell Marsh Sunset.
More gratuitous sky color- I had a feeling about yesterday afternoon, so I chugged some espresso and went to the shore. It was really crazy beautiful!

Mellow Cove Sunrise 2014.
http://nateparkerphotography.com/blog/2014/1/color-vs-black-and-white-photography-again It's really called Mellos Cove, but come on can you blame me? This was the first shots my old camera of mine got to make of 2014 so far. These are very important shots- the way I have my Lightroom catalog set up I always see the first images of the year every time I go to work on a new photo, so they should be good ones= not the lens IQ tests of my feet or that new abstract concept that seemed to be a good idea at the time! I like these of a sunrise I caught in Blue Hill the other day on the way over to the island next door Deer Isle for a photo excursion. And the way the day turned out these were a lucky strike or a target of opportunity- the rest of my planned locations were mostly a bust in the end, but it's always nice to get out and explore a bit and try.

Wonderland Winter Sunrise- from this morning.
For those of you who don't live around here- this spot is actually called Wonderland. It's on the backside of the island just past Seawall and for a trail out to gorgeous shoreline that's only a short crow flight from my driveway- it's not all that bad= never ceases to please! A balmy and beautiful morning it was today, ice and snow storm tonight.

The Littorals 
This is about one of the last seascape images I made before the holidays and before the snow, so it's been really a while since I made new work. So on this particular afternoon I was realizing how it can be fun and interesting to obscure the scale of a scene by photographing it at an angle and with some tilt thrown in on the 24 Ts-e. Kind of trying to find a new way to look at things. In a way a very mundane photograph but on the other hand there's something about it and that method which seems interesting. Hmmm. Hey- have a great weekend!

Coast of Maine Hop Scotch
Here's a one from around the corner down in Mitchell Cove before I gotta run out the door- Also I've been thinking that I want to give away some prints to some of you folks to give as gifts this holiday season- watch this space I'll make a proper announcement later and figure out how to do it. Just to be nice and feel happy to give something that hopefully somebody else will also get happy by giving.? Tough sentence I know, you know what I mean.

Sophie's Garlic
More experiments in home studio photographing. The toughest part of these kinds of images is the arranging the stuff in front of the lens. I just want to drop it and hope that it looks good, but it never does, so then you have to move it- then you start thinking critically and it's all down hill from there. The best results are from pretty much shuffling it blindly then opening my eyes and making a couple of corrections for balance. I know- dumb hobby right- whatever, hope to get better at it. One thing I thought after the fact is that these garlics have more of a floating feel now even though I shot them on a reflective black background, I took that out later- but now I'm feeling that they need to be grounded somehow, maybe by texture of a fabric or a wooden bowl or something. Problem is that it's all very cliche- just been wanting to try it for years before I finally... more »

Mouldering Squash Planet Textures
Been experimenting with making photographic studies in the comfort of mine own home. Using a speed light and shooting tethered into Lightroom 5 and playing with backgrounds and experimenting with the light in some ways. Yesterday I inherited 2 sheets of 6 foot by 3 foot glossy black 1/8 inch plastic which I'm loving. Tried to buy a sheet of white glossy at the Home Depot last week but they only had the nubby surface stuff. Still looking. 
The point is here is that I'm not expecting to make any breakthrough work initially but I've been wanting to do this for a few years now especially when the winter is blowing a rage outside. So hopefully I'll eventually find my way with this kind of thing and develop a good sense of it all. Until then- bear with me and make any suggestions that you might be thinking. Sure would 'preciate it!

Woo Hoo!
High honors to be included in +Nathan Wirth's super classy fine art photography zine "Slices of Silence"! This was really one of the most challenging interviews I ever had to complete though as sometimes I would realize that I had never thought about that particular thing before or had to remember some crucial moment in a long forgotten past that suddenly brought back so many crazy memories or something or other that I was just about in tears over it- so it took only about 3 months to finish. Very glad to have been included though as some of my most favorite image makers have been interviewed or featured there. Thanks Nathan!

Sand Dollars-
Pulled from lobster traps last week and photographed yesterday in my new home macro studio- nothing like making new imagery in the comfort of your own environs, especially when it's blowing 40 knots outside with 20 degree f air temps. Canon 5d2, 100mm f/2.8 macro IS USM II, old school Vivitar 283 speed light, Lr5, PsCC, On One Perfect Efex 8, Google "Nik Collection SEP2" and more than a little PBR. End.

Beech Tree Roadside Blur Abstract
Another ILM "photography gesture" from Sunday. I first heard Joel Tjintjelaar coin this term ILM (Intentional Lens Movement using a tilt shift lens) in an architectural abstract that he posted from Chicago. I've always really enjoyed making "kinetic photography" images for a change of pace and it often works really nicely where there are splashes of color and there's just something really fun about wiggling your camera around or jumping up and down with it while making pictures cause you never know what you're going to get. But this method of just moving the lens element makes for quite a bit more controllable blurs, it's also a little bit "stiffer" than a regular ICM shot but I like it. What do you think? 
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Have a good day today.

Driftwood at Bass Harbor Marsh Sunset
Well I'm going out with my kit in a few minutes to try to catch some of that eclipse that's supposed to happen at sunrise. Not too hopeful about seeing anything more than grey though because we're socked in pretty good right now. Who knows, sometimes you get lucky. Good luck to the rest of you though!

172 seconds at Little Hunter Beach
Refound this one yesterday and noticed that I had made it exactly 2 years ago today, which is interesting to me in some kind of way.
