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 15:53:284915966104CC G+

Annie Yim8,333Annie's version of under-circled photog circleSo here's a group (sadly, a rather large group since there are simply too many under-exposed, under-circled photographers on G+) of photographers in a circle, which are all people with less than 5,000 people circling them. Some are down to double digits. Some fairly close to that threshold so maybe even just past 5k.I don't really know, haven't checked today.But I did check fairly recently, and most of them are fairly active. You are of course welcomed to just temporarily add the full circle and then pick your own favourites out, delete the rest, which is actually something I'd suggest if you are easily overwhelmed with posts.This isn't meant to be an exhaustive list of photographers, there was no nomination process, just photographers that post photos often enough, and whose work I liked enough to keep in this circle. And photographers found through other photographers.I usually share their work, but today I'm kinda worn, so I thought, seeing several circles make rounds, that I'd share the circle instead. :)No, I'm not in it. :)2012-08-13 15:00:3912710110CC G+

Jan Kabili28,372Sharing circles is a plus for everyone. Nearly every time one of my G+ friends has been kind enough to include my name in a published circle, my follower count has gone up. And making a published circle your own is of course a great way to enjoy new G+ friends. In that spirit, here is my circle of Photoshop and Lightroom enthusiasts. Some are folks I found on G+; others asked to be added. It's all good.2012-06-18 14:32:062669316CC G+
Thomas Hawk2,494,0652,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 4 of 4 (Ro-Z)Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333gPart 2 of 4 (Ev-La) here:  http://goo.gl/dX7lRPart 3 of 4 (La-Ro) here:  http://goo.gl/MP1Q2This 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 beh2012-06-07 14:58:20499192218468CC G+

Warren Brooks0A Photoshop/Lightroom circle for anybody interested in getting their social skills on. There should be plenty of inspiration in here.If YOU want to be included in the next reshare of this circle, just do the following: 1) Leave a comment below, 2) reshare this post to spread the word and thus help promote the great people in this circle. And... As always: no reshare, no inclusion –– NO exceptions... Of course, I want to find some quality original content in your feed as well if you want in. If you do not wish to be in the circle, let me know and I will remove you asap.If you already are included in this circle you don't have to reshare this post if you do not wish to do so. I won't throw you out... :) But if you want to reshare anyway, it's much appreciated.Due to some controversy regarding my way of circle sharing, I want to clarify why I want you to reshare this post. To me Google+ is all about sharing and resharing, i.e. promoting yourself and others and NOT feeling bad about it. The more we spread the circle posts, the more people will be able to see YOUR work as well as the work of the other circle members. If you don't like that, fine, I respect that, but that's the way it works in my feed. If it disturbs you, feel free to uncircle me and/or block me, I will respect that too.With that said, enjoy this circle and feel free to ask for an inclusion.

Spot meter + AE-Lock

This is one of my favorite button combinations. With the dry/sunny spell we've been having in Portland this past week, there's lots of bright light in the house that we're not used to -- perfect time to use spot metering!
Just change to spot metering mode (I'm usually in matrix), point at the bright spot, press and hold AE-L and compose and take your shot.
This is also fun for the opposite effect, for example when shooting a person in a bright room. Spot meter on their face, and everything else gets washed out. Super cool.
Anyway, this is probably a tad on the saturated side, but I don't care.  :3

Tree of Life

This sculpture by Clark Wiegman, sits beautifully in Victor Steinbrueck Park in Seattle (right next to the Pike Place Market), and was donated to the Homeless Remembrance Project. 
"Blown by winds of change, a lone iconic tree bends while rooted to the earth. Metaphorically, this image represents both the difficult challenges and the encouraging possibilities of real change."

I took this photo this past weekend, on a trip I took with my wife (and daughter!) to celebrate our 11th(!) wedding anniversary.

Finding Infinity

I just returned from a lovely trip to California with my wife and daughter. One night, we camped under some redwoods in Mendocino County (somewhere between Willits and Fort Bragg), and were treated to a beautiful sky. Shooting stars too!

This was my first try at non-LE night photography. I was using an old cheapo 18-55 kit lens. It's autofocus with no focus guides, and infinity is not all the way to one end of the focus ring, but rather just shy of that. In the dark, autofocus doesn't work, and getting exact focus is especially important when your aperture is all the way open (which you need to get the Milky Way). So... Live View to the rescue!  (though, even with that, it was hard to find a good star to focus on!)  Any tips from seasoned star shooters?

Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, Oregon

My wife and daughter were super sweet to let me walk around and take pictures all day yesterday on our beach trip...  

This is my first swing at a #LongExposure  since watching +Joel Tjintjelaar's masterclass videos -- actually I haven't even watched the whole thing yet! It's chock full of info, and I'm taking it in slowly.

I didn't get any compositions yesterday that I'm 100% happy with, but this exposure was good enough to start putting the new techniques to work. Fun stuff! I also allowed myself to be a little sloppy in processing (note the halos, and sloppy edges), since I'm low on time (and this took me an hour or 2 of processing as is), and this isn't the ideal shot I was going for.

Technology can be stressful. But it's great when it all works out.

Two things that had been gnawing at me -- hot pixels, and light leakage -- the bane of long exposure photographers! -- I think I figured out workarounds for this weekend.

This photo is a rework of a previous post. I have a new ND filter coming in the mail, so expect more in the near future...  ^_^

Here's another from our little camping trip to Mt Hood a couple-three weeks ago.
My wife thinks I've oversaturated this one with bright greens, but I like this one better than the other version. I blame it on the colorblindness. Maybe I should stick to B&W.  ;-)

Maybe a stretch to call this a waterfall, but sharing for #waterfallwednesday  (curated by +Eric Leslie) anyway!

+sarah sanderling and I went for a walk by ourselves Friday night (we had a babysitter, woohoo!), and this was the "one last shot" I asked her to wait around for me to take before heading back home. It was a good date -- she had my old camera, and we were snapping up some nice nature scenes in Oaks Bottom Wildlife Preserve.

A 3-exposure blend taken this weekend at GeerCrest Farm, Oregon. A beautiful farm near Silverton, where my daughter and I camped out with some of her classmates' families. I highly recommend this place for your organic farm education needs, or just an outing where you want to get a little closer to the earth (Earth?).

No tripod used here.. I think I used a tree stump or a rock or something.

Hi there! I guess this is my intro to the LE community.  :-)
I have been shooting for a while -- my dad taught me how to shoot star tracks on a Minolta when I was in grade school. But just this past year or so have I been really into LE. Come to think of it, that is also partly due to my dad, who bought me an ND400 filter for Christmas (well, it was on my Amazon wishlist).   ;-)
I live in Portland, and love getting shots of the waterfront. There are also some beautiful waterfalls in the area that are great for LE. 
I'm looking forward to seeing some good stuff here!

My most recent post (https://plus.google.com/u/0/110551370921127208518/posts/U5ac1rwpbTj) was my first try at long exposures with my new camera (D7000). Previously I'd used my D70s pretty extensively taking long exposures, and never noticed any hot pixels. But now, whoa! What the heck are all those little white dots? (You can even see them by looking closely at the jpg I posted, especially noticeable in the darker upper left corner.) Newer cameras supposedly have less aggressive noise reduction, in order to preserve detail (don't quote me on this). But they do offer an in-camera solution, "Long Exposure Noise Reduction," which basically means you take your picture (say, a 5 minute exposure), then the camera takes another picture of the same shutter speed, but with the shutter closed ("dark frame"). It then finds the hot pixels in the dark frame and subtracts them from the... more »

#Portland , from way up on the hill.

I finally spent some time tweaking the AF Fine Tune on the new D7000. Got out some test focus charts and the tripod. I'm happier with the resolution of my pics now. :-)

This is a 3-exposure HDR, no tripod.. I used a chain-link fence as a sort of monopod.

Hi again G+ers! 
After a sort of photo snapping hiatus (well, unless you count Instagram), I am back! The past few months I've been busy framing and hanging some of my pics at a cafe, and I also did my first commissioned shoots (one for a friend's engagement, another for a bar's website). With the dough I got myself a D7000, and here is my first post as a result of that purchase.
Taken from the Burnside Bridge two nights ago.

They're not called sneaker waves because they soak your sneakers. Though they'll do that.

This 6-second exposure was sort of a test shot. The one after this was set to be 15 seconds, but halfway through that one, the tide decided to come in all at once. I grabbed my tripod (and my soaked camera bag, which almost got washed away) and ran, adrenaline pumping. Don't mess with that ocean!

What happens to a heart when the tide rolls in, waves crash and pull, and the sand underneath starts to give way? Does it change shape, get dragged to sea in pieces, or hold steady?
There will always be more rocks.. and more reshaping to do.

A lovely trip to the Oregon Coast this weekend, with the family and a couple of friends... all of whom were patient with my shutterbuggery. 
After a sneaker wave nearly washed away my camera bag (not to mention my tripod and camera), I paid respect to the incoming tide and stayed up in the driftwood.
This one was shot with the trusty Hoya R72 Infrared filter, and processed and toned in Silver Efex Pro.

A coworker and I were lamenting the fact that neither of us had had a chance to shoot much lately, when we got the bright idea to organize a lunchtime photowalk. There are enough photo geeks in our office that we had instant critical mass (5 for the first turnout, but there will be more). Here are my results!

up

World Trade Center, Portland.

This was a handheld HDR (3 exposures) that I took on Father's Day, when the 3 of us were wandering around downtown after a delicious breakfast. (I had a lox bagel -- yum.)
I'm sure that a lot of people would find this (and a lot of my pics) to be overprocessed. But... I can't help it.  I don't want to use digital darkroom tricks as a crutch, but maybe that's just my style right now. It's hard not to have thoughts like, "maybe it's time I move on from these building shots, and learn how to photograph people."  I dunno, maybe it doesn't matter.

Return to Foundation

I've always been pulled in by old sci-fi book covers. I just started re-reading the Foundation trilogy, so my sensorium is putting a retro-future edge on much of what I see. When I walked by this building downtown yesterday, I knew exactly what I wanted the final product to look like.

Do you find that what you're reading/watching changes the photos you take, or how you process them?
