Margaret Tompkins30,121>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 Followers>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  *There are NO requirements to share this circle*.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Each has < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle), and most have between 10,000 and 25,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandscapePhotography  theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2012-10-08 18:04:38500337118265

Andy Q.17,877#streetsaturday +Street Saturday As I don´t have any new photographs to post for my fave daily theme I thought I´d share my circle of street/documentary-photogs with you. I hope you will enjoy their work as much as I do.And here´s an interesting article on Street Photography by Dave Beckerman:http://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/street-photography-tips-and-techniques/As you can see there are many ways to define "street", and many ways to do street photography. Don´t try too hard to follow any rules you may be uncomfortable with, just go out there, open your eyes and have fun.Oh, and as I´ve only said it twice today here´s another HAPPY ST.

This morning I met Nadia from Togo. She was out on the streets with her mother, her uncle and other refugees from Togo. As I talked to her and her mother, she couldn’t understand me, but one thing striked me right away: 

She never looked away. Even as I took 3-4 photographs of her, she looked straight into the camera. Not for a second she stopped to focus on what I was doing. 

Nadia is 2 years old and I wish her all the best. Welcome!

Today I met Muhammed and his younger Brother. Both are Somali and in Germany since a few days. Both looked very glad to be here and that joy  translated without interruption - contrary to the hard exchange of words, if one doesn't understand each other.

We met before this big sign that says "Christmas Market Of Karlsruhe". As I took the photographs I found it somehow funny and a bit strange, but well, it kind of fits that we celebrate love these days, right?

I hope Muhammed and his brother will find a warm and safe place to stay and that they'll feel welcomed in this country.

Today I left my film cameras at home, grabbed my 5D and went to a refugee camp in my home town. 

I've been chewing on this topic for a long time, but I never had the guts to do it. But today I made a choice. 

I wanted to see the faces to all that stuff that is in the news every day. I wanted to talk to actual people and wasn't any longer satisfied with numbers that are thrown around so very often. 

So went there and met two men very friendly (but also very sad) men from Iraq. Both came to the place to fetch family, which arrived today at the camp.

Kassem and Kheri, both are Yazidis (they didn't know each other) had one thing in common: They said, that they would never, ever go back to Iraq, because of ISIL and the war. 

And: Both are living here for some years, but are having a very hard time. Kassem has three Children and his wife inIra... more »

And: Both are living here for some years, but are having a very hard time. Kassem has three Children and his wife in Iraq, who are living on the street. And Kheri was happy to fetch his father, who fled because of the war. 

Kassem showed me his passport, which clearly showed that his deportation has been intermitted, and that he is only tolerated in Germany. Kassem is not allowed to work.

I wish them all the best and hope, that they will be reunited with they beloved ones soon. ___

What you see today is one of my first developed photographs from the village project. It is one of the few that my lovely wife approved - and she has a very good sense to divide the keepers from the rest. 

So here you go.

These days I'm realizing that the village project has become more than a project. Villages have turned into my new sujet, and instead of street photography in an urban setting, this has become the realm of where I love to take photographs. And: When I began this thing, I'd never thought that the photographs would end up that dark. But I like it that way. 

These days I'm realizing that the village project has become more than a project. Villages have turned into my new sujet, and instead of street photography in an urban setting, this has become the realm of where I love to take photographs. And: When I began this thing, I'd never thought that the photographs would end up that dark. But I like it that way. ___

Especially on the upper and lower edge of this image one can easily detect what went "wrong" in the deleloping process - until now I do not know where this origins.

As with all images I utilized Adobe Lightroom in order to get the best amount of tones and details, which is way more laborious with harsh irregularities. 

What I like here is the 70's/80's feel, and the cycling woman on the vintage bike helps alot.

This week I began to develop my Tri-X films completely on my own. As you can see, it didn't work out that well. I'm in constant pain - and somehow affection - for how these images became. 

I made alot of mistakes. Like too cold water, not washing out and stuff. But I will keep working on this process until I got everything under control. 

Till then, I'll not stop posting the images. Because at least some are well composed and the rancid scribblings on the film seem to work out okay with the overall village theme.

I still got some photographs left, which do not belong to my villages project. This is one of them.

Most of the time, villages I visit are without any people in public. It is very rare to more than ten people on my hourly route. That translates in photographs with no poeple, which is, as I said before, completely okay with me. 

What is even more rare is that I find two or more people walking together. This loneliness is somehow strange and common to me, because at last I'm out on my own, too - but with my camera I have something "to do". 

Sometimes I use the camera to hide my memories of the past. 

Very often I felt lonely as a kid. As I walked to school and back (I had a long walk), sometimes this feeling of being without a friend almost crushed me. All of that emerges in those dark and sometimes sad black and white images.

What I like about villages is, that within 5 minutes, one is in pure nature. As I have a history as a #landscape photographer, the projects keeps me reminding about the early days. 

And everytime, I feel this comfort, this peace that only nature can give.

With my recent switch to the villages context, I tossed the idea of always having people in my photographs. I feel sincerely drawn to architectures, simple and yet sometimes complex, even there, where I never had thought I'd find it. 

So at the end, photography is a changer of perspective. Mine.

In my village project, I try hardly not to over-romantisize and it seems that I trade that with painting a too dark picture. But as I prefer it this way, the dark-dramatic style resembles my inner conflict with the things that happen in those provincial ares politicalwise (tending to the right side, conservative worldviews). 

So when I'm out with my camera these days, I have all that in my mind and I'm trying to work out something that is meaningful to me. And this image is one of them, because it is so dark and a bit creepy (you may have to look closer).

Dammit, I love this light in the morning. It shines straight into the whole pedestrian area and illuminates everything and everbody. Good for shooting some high contrasty stuff.

Today I was in Karlsruhe-Durlach. The light was very hard, which is good in my terms. So I enjoyed the sun and took some photos. Damn, I love to photographs on the streets.

Brothers And Sisters

Goood morning! Today I had a very good photowalk through Karlsruhe. You know, my hometown. 

After being blown away from New York City I expected to be completely bored here in Germany.

But, actually I’m not. Germany may be boring, but the overall dullness is quite interesting in itself, if you think about it. 

So, this woman turned around, I flashed, and well, I like the whole scnenery.

Wide angle shot. New York City. 

What is it with people being small in pictures? Why do I still find that interesting after understanding all the stuff that tells my mind to “not do that style”? 

The answer may lay in my own perception of myself. I consider myself as a small part in a big world. Surrounded by things that are not me. That are not a mirror of me. Not even the smallest thing has to do with me. 

And then there I am. Doing my thing. Corresponding to the world. Sometimes I can change it. It is rare, but when, it is the exception.

I spend the last week in New York City with my brother. We had an awesome time there and I didn't miss a single day there shooting on the streets.

This is my first picture I want to upload. I made it in the late evening, opened the shutter a bit longer and with some luck I managed to photograph this woman.

By the way: I met quarlo​ (http://flickr.com/quarlo) and we had a very good chat about everything photography. If you do not know his stuff, make sure to check it out.

Backlight. Always good for some drama. I am still not sure if that element should be in my future work, but it always generates some depth of feeling.

And that is the fight I am in right now. It is very popular to do this dramatic kind of photography. Drama, drama.

And on the other side street photography often is about these subtle things that change everything.

As I am drawn to both techniques I may incorporate both.

I love the color yellow. I can’t say why, but wherever it pops out on the street, I see it from far away. And whenever I can, I put it into an image.

This one was already gone. Meaning: I walked bye, because the workers shed was „too big“. But I thought: »Wait a second. It could work out.«

So I did. While shooting I waited about 30 seconds for the worker to establish a good position that would suit the rest. His orange jacked relates to the big container in the background and the helmet…

Well, it’s yellow. For the win.
