Ok so it's not #caturday just yet...but I'm out all day at a wedding tomorrow and just wanted to sneak this in; my crazy cool cat montage.

This is Teddy (looking kinda like Garfield at the front) and Dilly, who I featured last Saturday. The shot took about half an hour (seemed longer) to physically take and another hour to process.  It would have been well worth the effort just for the Teddy's main pose at the front...still cracks me up...

Have a great weekend all!!

So just to prove that I haven't vanished off the face of this earth, I've started blogging again.  It's so easy to not get round to it when you're busy, but the consequences are that people tend to think you've quit the business and joined the foreign legion of something.  Anyway, here's one of my new blog entries if you're interested in seeing the different type of shots that come out of one of my weddings http://paulscottphotography.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/peak-district-wedding-red-lion-stanage.html

Recent wedding snap.  Lovely wedding...but a 14 hour day without an assistant took it's toll on my legs.  I literally couldn't walk properly for two days!  What's that about??  Getting old, clearly :/

Another from Torside Resevoir.  Messing around with HDR and trying to figure out some ways of getting a more natural image.  Think this probably needs a little bit more TLC....but I have so many to edit that it'll probably stay as is.  I'm interested in developing my blending techniques so if anyone knows any cool links...feel free to drop em in :D

I lost my father to cancer late last year.  This was one of the last pictures I took of him while he was in reasonable health.  I don't want to be too sombre but he is missed a HUGE amount.

If any of you out there happen to have your parents or children near you right now, why not give them a huge hug and a kiss this instant before the moment passes. Our time together is priceless.  Make it count.

Love you Dad.

Here's a quick one for my very own +Candid Mood Tuesday theme.  Taken on Saturday at Hollins Hall in prep for what looks set to be an amazing wedding.  Themes mooted include Lord of the Rings and Queen Album covers....so watch this space, there could be some rather creative wedding photography cropping up in the near future.

I just love it when clients have a sense of adventure :D

You know when you take up wedding photography that there are always certain moments during proceedings where you are going to get only the one chance at doing the scene justice....well, this was definitely one of those moments!!

One good thing about being on a health kick...you end up getting off your butt more often to do cool stuff. This was one of a few from Damflask Resevoir in the Peaks.  Thinking I might add something to this when I have a bit more time ;)

I always do engagement shoots as part of my wedding photography package.  It's a great way of getting to know the couple in a relaxed manor before their big day.  You also get the opportunity to try new things out.  In this case it was a couple of free presets I picked up from Totally Rad.  

This one seems to help the laid back natural feel I was after :)

Wow - I really have got a bit out of the loop with my postings.  I have been working a lot but family stuff really has been taking priority.

Anyway, enough of the excuses.  Here's an image from a recent wedding I did for a fellow photographer (no pressure!) on their friends farm.  I used a speed light, remote on the right through an umbrella and then had a little play in photoshop (can you tell).  Great fun, as always...and some nice results :)

Had a fun hour with +Neil Carter and the kids.  This was taken just before the hay fever kicked (theirs not mine!) and looks like a nice candid image for #candidmoodtuesday  ....even though it was totally contrived!

Looking forward to arrival of my Nexus 7 tomorrow, so if all goes well I'll be hooking up to the Gooniverse on a shiny shiny new device :D

The Photoshoppers & Lightroomers Circle –– Third Share

#CircleSharingForThePeoplePLC2  

I am very proud to present you with this wonderful exciting circle of great photographers using image editing applications such as Photoshop and Lightroom! You will find a variety of styles in this circle –– from people that really rocks the socks with their skills. Add this circle –– it might be the best circle you never added.

Want to be included in the PLC?

READ before asking for inclusion!

Are you a photographer using image editing applications such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Gimp etc.? Do you want to learn more about photography? Do you want to meet people just like yourself? Do you want to have your work promoted here on Google+? Then this is a circle for you.

Still want to join the PLC? Then do the following:

1) You must use an image editing application and it must show in your feed that you do so.

2) Plus and Reshare both circle posts. Why? If you want to be promoted, it's only fair that you help promote others. Do NOT remove the reshared circle posts from your feed after I have added you to the circle.

3. Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state which kind of photography you are into, what image editing software you use and that you HAVE plussed and reshared. I will check every feed.

4. Make sure that you mainly share your own original photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The PLC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great photography to their feeds.

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.

*This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeoplePLC2 so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.* 

Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/

Look into my eyes...

Meet Dilly.  This wonderful cat was one of two stars of a catty photoshoot that I did on Thursday.  

This shot was taken during a quiet and very long minute when Dilly just stood and looked directly down the lens...without blinking.  I swear she was looking deep into my soul!!

Anyway, my first post to #caturday  +Christophe Friedli & +Lee Daniels .

This is from an engagement shoot I did where the couple already had kids...and it kind of turned into a family portrait shoot.  

It's a really simple shot but I tend to like my portraits that way :)

Raining a lot over here in the UK, but on the plus side we're getting some nice rainbows to boot.  Here's a rainbow I found the other day...it was actually a double rainbow, and I was like, OMG what does it mean?...a double rainbow oh WOW!!

Hopefully some of you will get the reference...the rest will have to assume that I'm slightly mad.  I'm happy either way...I mean I saw a full double rainbow....

BTW I know this looks like a single rainbow....but you'll have to take my word for it...it was double, and it was full ;)

Been doing quite a lot of walking, trying to gear my self up for a bit of proper exercise...because I've only gone and put my name down for a half marathon...aaaaargghh!! Anyway, apart from making me feel totally out of shape, the exercise does have it's perks.  Every now and again I stumble upon the odd view.

A quick snap from Woolley, South Yorkshire.

Taken maybe a minute after the image below.  Black and white seems to work much better on this edit...and you get a better idea of scale here.  Emley mast, bottom left is so big that it can be seen on the landscape for miles around, and it's so high that it often breaches the clouds....and yet here it is dwarfed by drama above...

Just driving home from a wedding on Saturday and just had to get out of the car and take some more pictures, the light was unbelievable...that takes a bit of doing when you've been clicking away for ten hours solid I can tell you!  Worth it though.

+Peter From sharing great circles again.  This is the Visual Artists Circle - enjoy!

The VISUAL ARTISTS Circle –– Validated Third Revision #CircleSharingForThePeopleVAC3  

READ BEFORE YOU ASK FOR INCLUSION

The time has come to share the third validated revision of the Visual Artists Circle (VAC) –– Part 1 with 500 excellent artists that produce great art and really wants to interact with you. You will find some very interesting artwork in this circle and I am proud to promote these great people – I am sure they will bring lots and lots of great and interesting art to your feeds.

If YOU want to hop on the next VAC train, do the following:

1. Help spread the word and reshare BOTH circle posts (Parts 1 and 2). Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow artists. Simple as that.

2. Ask for inclusion in the comments. I will check every feed. Please state what kind of artwork you are into and that you have reshared BOTH circle posts.

3. Make sure that you mainly share your own original artwork in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The VAC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great artsy stuff to their feeds.

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared the circle posts and let me know that you did so.

HOW TO AVOID FLOODING OF THIS POST IN YOUR FEED:

*This post is hash-tagged with  #CircleSharingForThePeopleVAC3 so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post.

1. Help spread the word and reshare this circle post. Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow artists. Simple as that.

2. Ask for inclusion in the comments. I will check every feed. Please state from which country you are and that you have reshared this post.

3. Make sure that you mainly share your own original photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The ETPC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great imagery to their feeds.

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this circle post and let me know that you did so.

HOW TO AVOID FLOODING OF THIS POST IN YOUR FEED:

*This post is hash-tagged with  #CircleSharingForThePeopleETPC2 so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.* 

Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/

Cheers!___Absolute pleasure to be in this circle from +Peter From .  Have a look, there's bound to be some top photographers in here that you haven't come across yet :D

Another super circle from +Peter From - massive thanks for the ongoing support and helping people get established here on G+!

The Revised & Validated UPCOMING STARS CIRCLE
#CircleSharingForThePeopleUCSR2  

It's finally here again. I really hope that I have managed to remove everyone with more than 7500 followers from this circle. If I missed somebody, I beg your pardon –– but it REALLY takes time to curate a circle like this.

Anyway... I am really proud to present 500 excellent upcoming stars that produce great photography. You don't want to miss this circle. I am sure they will bring lots and lots of great and interesting images to your feeds.

If YOU want to hop on the next UCS train, do the following:

1. Help spread the word and reshare this circle post. Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow artists. Simple as that.

2. Ask for inclusion in the comments and state that you have reshared. I will check every feed sooner or later.

3. Make sure that you share your own original photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The UCS is a validated quality circle that should bring people great imagery to their feeds.

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the UCS. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this circle post and let me know that you did so.

Been a way for a week, come back and find this!!...massive thanks tp +Thomas Hawk - this will surely be a great set of photographers :)

2,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+

Part 4 of 4 (Ro-Z)

Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333g
Part 2 of 4 (Ev-La) here:  http://goo.gl/dX7lR
Part 3 of 4 (La-Ro) here:  http://goo.gl/MP1Q2

This is the fourth time since joining G+ almost a year ago that I'm sharing my photographers circle.  I shared it with 500 photographers, 1,000 photographers, 1,500 photographers and now 2,000 photographers.  I have to break my circle up into four 500 photographer circles as that is the G+ limit.  Each day this week (Mon.- Thurs.) I'll share a different circle.  Today is the fourth circle and includes photographers with the last name's Ro-Z. 

A few notes about these circles.  I always get hated on when I share them by people.  Inevitably if I include 2,000 people, I will leave 50,000 people out.  This is not intentional or personal.  This circle is not "the best" photographers on G+ or in the world.  It doesn't mean if you are not in my circle that you are not a "quality" photographer.  

This list is simply photographers that I've stumbled across for whatever reason over the past year and have chosen to follow their work.  In some cases I've gotten to know the photographers in this circle personally -- through photowalks and trips, hangouts, in real life, etc.  Many of these people are or have become my friends.  Most of the photographers in my circle though I don't even know.  They are just people whose work I admire and want to consume -- I hope many are future friends.  :)

I use some objective criteria with this circle but I use a lot of subjective criteria too.  This is, afterall, my own personal circle that I look at and +1 from every single day.  My aesthetic taste and personal preferences may be very, very different than yours.  This is ok.  Art is subjective.  That said, here a breakdown of my own preferences and biases that influence who I add into my circle.

1.  I like people who are active on G+.  If you haven't posted one of your photos in the last month you probably are not in this circle.  I use a script to uncircle inactive people regularly.

2.  I like photographers who mostly post their own photographs.  I dislike clutter and "dumb stuff" in my photographers circle.  Excessive reshares, circle shares, memes, gifs, youtube videos, posts not about photography, web links, etc. make me uncircle or move people to a different circle.  

I also like photographers who regulate how much of their photography they post to their stream.  I don't want to see 50 shots in a row of someone's vacation.  I think about 5 photos max a day feels about right to me.

3.  *Controversial* I dislike signatures and watermarks.  You will find photographers in my circle that use them.  It's just a bias, not a hard and fast rule.  I mostly want this stream to be as watermark/signature free as possible.  I totally understand and respect your reasons and decision for using watermarks/signatures.  I hope you equally respect my decision to not want to consume photos mared up with them.  Please don't turn this into a discussion about watermarks/sigs, I've spent the last 10 years thinking heavily about this issue.  It's just a personal preference and bias.

4.  I like people who are active, positive, helpful, enthusiastic G+ community members.  I dislike people who are rude, mean, complainers, trolls, harrasers, etc.  If you say mean things to people, about people, about their art or their work I don't want to follow you.  I'm fine with debate and disagreement.  It should just be done respectfully -- there's a huge difference between respectful disagreement and rude behavior.  Not only will you not be in this circle if you are rude, I'll probably block you too.  I want to surround myself with positive uplifting people. 

5.  I like people who directly post their work here on G+.  If you primarily post links to Flickr, 500px, your blog, etc. I probably won't follow you.  G+ photos are larger and I don't want to have to leave G+ to consume a photo.  I also want to know that you are invested in the conversations around your photos here.

I haven't included myself in these circles but I have included +Photo Talk Plus   which is the weekly hangout show that +Lotus Carroll  and I do on Wednesday nights.  I've also included our two show sponsors +SmugMug and +Blurb Books.  Thanks to everyone who supports the show. 

I'll share my circles again when they hit 2,500 in the future.  Thanks to all photographers on G+ (not just the ones in my circle) for making this such an amazing place for photography on the web.___Been a way for a week, come back and find this!!...massive thanks tp +Thomas Hawk - this will surely be a great set of photographers :)

Yup it's been a while.  Just got back from a break in Wales.  Took my camera but not my PC, hence no G+ posts.  We put our time to good use though and managed to hike up mount Snowdon in pretty extreme weather.  Quite proud of that.

Anyway here's a totally unrelated picture that I shot last year - just stumbled across it whilst looking for some other images that we'd had earmarked to print :)
