Downtown?This month we want to take a vote to see your favorite places to capture the wonderful architecturePlease write in the comments below and by Sunday evening, we will pick the most popular place chosen by you.Robyn and I will then find some great local bars to meet up before we go clicking. -------------------------------------------OK Drinkers and Clickers! UPDATE!We're going to go to the Palace of Fine Arts and Crissy Fields tomorrow evening! The Palace is absolutely gorgeous, especially at night. Should get some great #architecture shots.Here's the schedule:We will start at Liverpool Lil's (2942 Lyon Street) at 6, 630pm to collect our group, have a couple of snacks and drinks, then we'll head on over to the Palace of Fine Arts for some late afternoon pre-sunset shots, next we'll walk to Crissy Fields for sunset shots including the Golden Gate Bridge, then back to the Palace for some awesome night shots, and we'll wrap it up at Final Final (2990 Baker Street) for more libations and delicious bar food.As usual, we'll update this event page with our whereabouts, and feel free to join up at any time!Drink & Click April2013-04-30 18:00:0026G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:145001353999CC G+
Ellie Kennard19,414Sharing a Circle of Interactive Canadians with a Musician Friend Who is Crazy About CanadiansIf you received a notification of this, it is because you are included in this shared circle. +Toby Wilson lives in the UK but has frequently visited the East Coast of Canada with his partner in music/crime +Graham Breeze as Breeze and Wilson. He wanted a way to get to know more Canadians on G+ and so I thought this was the best way to introduce you all to him. He is, along with Graham, holding their first G+ musical hangout tomorrow afternoon (check out his page for details), as +Breeze & Wilson if you can tune in I am sure you will be well entertained.2013-02-20 20:08:2818646830CC G+

Follow the Path to the Sun
1/8s, f/20, ISO 80

Software has  been able to push my creativity so much further than what was possible a couple of years ago. Without relying on filters or HDR or photoshop, I was able to recover so much of what I remember seeing the other night capturing this all within Lightroom 5.  

What is your favourite feature in Lightroom 5?

Migrate from Aperture to Lightroom

As you may or may not know, Apple is not putting anymore work into Aperture - forcing a lot of photographers to move onto something else.  Since it didn't seem like Apple or Adobe were putting any effort into creating a tool to migrate from Aperture to Lightroom, Adrian Grah took it upon himself to create something.  While it's still in beta - Aperture's Exporter looks promising and may be just what you need to make the migrate as painless as possible.

Drink and Click Toronto in need for a lead

If you're based out of the #Toronto  area and want to lead the +Drink and Click™ Toronto chapter, please let myself or +Juan Gonzalez know.  Since moving it's been tough to commit my travels to Toronto and we really don't want to see this chapter close.  Toronto has some incredible locations and the photowalk has been a great way to connect with other photographers and make new friends!

Update

As you know we haven't done a photowalk in a while. +Vincent McMillen has left Drink & Click and myself (+Sara Collaton) recently moved back to my hometown of Oakville.

#Toronto  is an incredible city and +Juan Gonzalez & +Lotus Carroll would hate to have this chapter close down, so we're asking our audience: Is there anyone interested in leading Drink and Click Toronto?  I instantly thought of +Jason Cook, +Ron Clifford or +Carolyn Stampeen as possible choices but ultimately, it's up to Juan & Lotus once we hear back from anyone stepping up.

I would love to still come out to as many as I possibly can and will help anyone with the transition.___Drink and Click Toronto in need for a lead

Spencer Collaton
1/100s, f/2.2, ISO 50

Last week my brother called me up and asked if he could get some new portraits done. I had the perfect location planned for tonight but rain ruined my big plan with some beautiful light.  We quickly drove back to my place which gave me the opportunity to finally test out some off camera flash work with my Sony A7.  A quick setup in my living room, some wine, hip hop music and an excited dog running around we nailed this in the first few minutes.  Hope you like it, Spence!

Oh yeah, my brother also hid a secret from the whole family for years... he can sing! Check out his youtube channel and give him a like:

Strange Currencies
1/160s, f/1.8, ISO 1000

I recently purchased the Sony #A7 and I've rediscovered my passion for photography. It never really went away but my shoulder and back problems have increased over the years carrying multiples lenses and a heavy camera body, usually on one shoulder.  After a few days of shooting with +Vivienne Gucwa with a loaner Sony a6000 courtesy of Sony Canada, I quickly snatched the A7 while at +Henry's Exposure Show.

I love carrying my camera with me.  It's in my bag every day.  Between the lighter setup and the fact that I can transfer the images to my phone to edit via wifi - the laptop stays at home too.  I can't WAIT to head to #NYC  in 2 weeks time with only a few lenses, a tiny camera body and my phone.

Does anyone at #Google  know what's going on with +Google Maps ? It's frustrating that I can't access my own places/maps on my android or iphone and I'm really hesitant to completely convert my classic maps to the new maps engine. I have copies of both just in case but I find it disappointing that they don't respond to twitter requests or inputs sent through the website.

Casa Loma

It's been great exploring #toronto with +Vivienne Gucwa and +kurt clausnitzer these last two days. Here's a quick shot of the beautiful Casa Loma that looks down onto Toronto. If it looks familiar it's because it's been featured in many movies... One of the most recent ones being the X-Men movies.

Taken with +Sony Canada's a6000 and edited on my +HTC one.

US Patent Office Grants 'Photography against a White Background' Patent to Amazon

Thanks to +Emon Hassan for sharing this.  It's either a brilliant joke or an absurd look at some of the patents that exist...

Ha! 

And if it's a joke article, then Haha!

LOOK UP

Within the last year I've slowly changed my online habits.  While my job depends on being online,  I'd invest hours upon hours after work editing photos, reading Google+ streams and catching up on my rss feeds after the 9-5 job was finished.

Now, I limit the hours or days I choose to do work (after work).  The cold weather up in Toronto during the winter months is an easy excuse to stay indoors but I've been enjoying my time a lot more with walks, family, good friends and books.

Have any of you noticed a change in your online habits?

Google Maps

I've been using +Google Maps for ages.  It's been a great tool to plan trips and as a photographer, I pin sights I want to see or locations based on images that are shared online.  I've been trying out the new google maps and while I love the interface, I've been having problems when wanting to pin new items.  If I do a random search in google maps (not my own made maps), it wants to pin the searched location to my old maps - the new ones don't show up as options.  It's only when I'm in my own maps that I can add to them.  If there's anyone from #Google  that can put me in touch with someone on the Maps team for feedback - that'd be greatly appreciated!

Well, it doesn't look like I'll make it to #NYC  in the next few months but I'm very happy knowing that an incredibly special New Yorker friend will be visiting ME in the next few weeks!

Hangouts 2.1 for Android is here!

Hangouts 2.1 for Android: SMS improvements and a homescreen widget

Today we’re launching the newest version of Hangouts for Android, rolling out to the Play store (http://goo.gl/6Sv8V) over the next few days. Highlights include:

- Merged conversations: SMS and Hangout conversations with the same recipient are now combined into a single conversation. You can control whether you want to send a message via Hangouts or SMS with the flip of a switch, and different message types will be easy to tell apart in the conversation. Of course, you can always merge and unmerge conversations if you’d like.

- Simplified contact list: now there’s two main sections in contacts — People you Hangout With, and Phone Contacts — making it simpler to navigate, and easier to use for SMS.

- Homescreen widget: add the Hangouts widget to your homescreen for quick access to your recent conversations.

- Performance improvements: today’s update includes better quality video calls, as well as improved SMS and MMS reliability.

The new version will be available in the Play store (http://goo.gl/6Sv8V) this week, so download or update and let us know what you think!

Hey guys, just wondering what you're favourite Twitter and Photo apps are?

Let me know!
I personally love #VSCO  & +Instagram for photos but am jumping back and forth between Twitter, Plume and Hootsuite.
