Seattle Photowalk556Spring has sprung, and it's time to get out and get shooting! Join +Jake Johnson, +Jacob Lucas, and +Michael Riffle at the Seattle Center for the first +Seattle Photowalk of the year!We'll meet at the International Fountain for a group photo at 3 PM, and from there walk around chatting and shooting the sights of the center--including the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden, and the EMP. Afterwards (around 6ish) we can go out for food and drink, and the die hards can meet up at Kerry Park for sunset.All skill levels are welcome! Come out and meet some of your fellow plussers, and put some faces to those +Names. :)Seattle Photowalk - Seattle Center Edition2013-05-04 15:00:0067G+
Drink and Click ™ VAN217Okay, folks! Get ready for our April chapter challenge: Architecture. We'll be downtown Vancouver in the heart of the city.Hey All!So we're going to meet downtown at Malone's, since our challenge is architecture. We will have some drinks and then cruise down Dunsmuir and the business district at about 330pm, when we should get some cool light and shadows and reflections happening.Eventually we will make our way back, and finish at The Railway Club, who has waived their cover change for our group if we arrive before 5pm. From there, you're free to stay for the night, they will have bands going on starting at about 830pm (you could get a stamp and go in/out if you wish). TRC also serves good food and has lots of craft beer on tap, cool lighting and ample room, as well as is upstairs with windows for people watching on Dunsmuir :) Fun fact: In another life, Kate was the Day Manager at The Railway Club :)Remember to RSVP and invite your friends!ps - if you're coming in from out of the city, you could park near a skytrain and come in that way, to avoid a parking meter. Alternatively, I believe the underground parking lot at Pacific Centre is $6 all day on weekends. (come down Dunsmuir, Pender or Hastings, turn left on Howe, and the entrance is on the left just after Dunsmuir but before Georgia). Drink and Click VAN in April!2013-04-27 15:00:0010G+
Drink and Click ™ VAN217Update! We will meet up at St. Augustine's on Commercial Drive at 4:30. We'll do our photo walk and most likely end up at The Dime, further down Commercial. If we find some rad graffiti we can do some portraits for our black and white chapter challenge! See y'all there!First - Congrats to +Jordan Oram for taking 1st Prize in January's Challenge, Straight Out Of The Camera!! Way to represent, Jordan!!!For March, exact locations TBD - we've learned that we need numbers first in order to secure enough seats! It will be in the downtown core or a close outlying neighbourhood. It'll be awesome as always - the question is: you comin'??Last month was a funny challenge of Photographing Strangers in Bars, which ended up with us staying put in the Morrissey. This time we will get OUTSIDE again, likely picking places a decent distance apart to ensure ample Walking Photo Mayhem. If last month was your first time with us, come again to get a better feel!The Challenge is Black and White. That's pretty open so we're mulling over several fun ideas. Feel free to throw ideas out there! Stay tuned, but mostly, save the date! and RSVP so we can book some tables!Drink and Click: March MeetUp!2013-03-24 16:30:0019G+
Drink and Click ™ VAN217We shall be meeting at The Morrissey! Reservation is under Drink and Click. This month's theme is Strangers in Bars - so we will be staying in one place this time!Drink and Click VAN - February Meet Up2013-02-15 19:00:0019G+

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 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 and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. 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/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*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.2013-09-05 16:07:314714431109CC G+

Weekly Photo Project 2013627#WeeklyPhotoProject2013Week 5: EyesThe theme for the week 5 is "Eyes" and the due date is on Monday 4.2.Don't worry if you're early or late - the main thing is that you're having fun making your own photos and commenting the ones created by others!Participants CircleHere is the cumulative group of participants in the +Weekly Photo Project 2013 . Let us know, if you've participated, but can't find yourself in the circle.The project is open for new members any time of the year, so you're more than welcome to share info about the project. This post is shared directly also with the followers circle, which haven't yet started the project.Community poll: ResultsThere were 18 votes cast in the community poll on 23.1., which is less than 10 % of all 221 participants: 4 said "yes", 11 "no" and 3 "both ok". For the time being we're not making a community for the project. Comments for and against communities, see eg the links on the poll messagehttps://plus.google.com/u/0/117783067636860808623/posts/8YymmcfJxBsGoogle+ Photobox by Jari HuomoPromoting the project our participant +Alice DaU led me to +Paul van de Loo 's profile where I was reminded by +Jari Huomo 's app, with which you can show easily your most liked photos in Google+ on a single web page - check it out!You'll get your own page when you replace your Google+ ID in the end of the URL here: http://www.googleplussuomi.com/photobox/?googleid=104350419422550122115Your G+ ID is the number string in your page URL after "plus.google.com/". BTW, Jari is from Finland like me :)Info under About tab: new tips to share?If you have some great stuff related to this project that you'd like to share with fellow participants, share the links in the comments of this post.Currently under About tab:- project updates- all themes for whole year - instructions for the use of the calendar to remind you of the themes- how to make the page and curator names appear as links on your post, so that we'll get notified of your post - links related to the project (photo tips etc)https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/117783067636860808623/117783067636860808623/aboutPing co-curators +Andrew Willard & 2013-02-01 01:24:5922217212CC G+

There are also some disadvantages at the current technical state of the communities, though.Therefore, vote by plussing the options below in the comments:1) Yes, a community would be nice for the project. I'd use it, if there was one.2) No, the project doesn't need a community. I wouldn't use it, if there was one.3) I don't mind either way, there could be one, but I wouldn't necessarily use it myself.There's discussion about communities in the comments for eg these earlier posts, it's a good idea to read those before voting:https://plus.google.com/b/117783067636860808623/117783067636860808623/posts/JbfSKersZp5https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/117783067636860808623/117783067636860808623/posts/YKxegLqhpHxhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/117783067636860808623/posts/CLSaEjFQez1Ping co-curators +Andrew Willard & +Iain Harley / +Tiina Niskanen 2013-01-23 00:23:4621915313CC G+
Weekly Photo Project 2013491Many of you have asked for a circle, and here is a rough draft of it. This circle represents the people who have posted a photo for the first theme, that we know of. If you submitted a photo do us a favor and search for your name in the circle. There's a search box option on the screen after you click "View shared circle". If you see your name that means we found your photo and you're good. If you submitted a photo and you don't see your name in this circle do us a favor and re-share your post making sure to tag it correctly and we'll get to it. We'll then release a version 1.0 of this circle after we see if there's anyone we didn't get to.A reminder that this is an open group so this circle will constantly change so the best way to find photos of other participants right now is to search for #weeklyphotoproject2013 . You can save the search for easier access. Thanks everyone for a great week 1 and we're looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for week 2! -Iain2013-01-08 18:01:4518219611CC G+

A huge group of people mobbing and grabbing at two cameras at the +Sony #A7 event in Vancouver, like a group of orphans after a bowl of porridge. 

And for daring to ask if there will be some sort of organized event or presentation, or is it going to be just "who grabs it first gets it", I was told by the organizer I should leave if I don't like it.

Then I get threatened by a fanboy member of the group, for reporting on the situation, to come down if I dare and tell it to his face. Classy operation +Sony 

I'll stick to my current brand, and so will my friends asking my opinions.

Catchlights will make or break a portrait

Before I had interest in photography, I had some headshots taken, and was amazed with these light beams ejecting from my eyes. Never had a picture of myself like that before and wondered how it was done.
When I got into photography, that was one of the first things I tried to learn to imitate, and did find it hard to get it right everytime. Either the light is not right, or, well, I was not in a studio with correctly placed lights and modifiers.

That is one of the reasons I created the app Illuminant, the off-camera lighting app with color balance and catchlight patterns.

Running on an iPad (or iPhone), Illuminant lets you create soft off-camera lighting when you don't have your strobes, modifiers and triggers with you.

Morning mist
Project 52 B&W
Week 40: Lyrically Inspired

This is a combo "lyrical" inspiration for me.
I was driving this morning to catch the sunrise by a mountain for a completely different song, and this scene caught my eye.

It was a foggy misty morning, and the song I thought of is "Morning mist" by Immortal Souls.
Not only that, this scene is almost a duplicate of one of their album cover, with their band name hanging over a misty mountain scene in cursive metal.

Here is a youtube link: Immortal Souls - Morning Mist

Here is a link to the album cover I got reminded of: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/44/Immortal_Souls_-_Wintereich.jpg

The lyrics are horribly dark though:
Afraid to open my eyes
Horror of facing the day
Mist of the morning is fading
While cancer burn in... more »

Seattle landmark
 No, not that one. No, not the other one either; which is hard to fit in a frame and probably tastes bad.

Reflections   (Shameless plug warning)
My iPad app Illuminant lets you create soft off-camera lighting when you don't have your strobes, modifiers and triggers with you.

The best way to put a smile on your friends' faces on a gloomy work morning is with an armful of double-doubles.

Butterfly lighting using an iPad
(Shameless advertising warning)

My latest iPad app Illuminant lets you create soft off-camera lighting when you don't have your strobes, modifiers and triggers with you.

One of the benefits of using Illuminant on an iPad is the versatility. You can switch positions with a simple command to your "Voice Activated Lightstand" :-)

Here, the model is lit only using an iPad running Illuminant, with Tungsten color setting.

Soft light using an iPad
(Shameless plug warning)

My latest iPad app Illuminant lets you create soft off-camera lighting when you don't have your strobes, modifiers and triggers with you.

Here, the model is lit only using an iPad running Illuminant. Color is matched to the very low ambient light, and an Octo pattern for the catchlights.

Illuminant is an off-camera lighting app to light your subjects with, without strobes, triggers and all that stuff. This photo is made using the app as the key light source.

Clover

Speaking of best ways of making coffee, this is The Clover. Despite it's unfortunate disposition, it can still be found in some coffee shops which bought it before it's untimely purchase by #Starbucks.

This one is from a #Starbucks, still the best way to enjoy their coffee.

Here is a low-key photo shot using my new iOS app Illuminant as the light source.

Set to emulate a beauty dish, gives those distinct catch lights

Damage of a work day

Yesterday, my app went on sale on the App Store after many coffee laden days and nights.

To honor the chemicals and the establishments that helped me in the development process, today I am starting a project that will highlight the coffees, the machines and the coffee shops.

Beginning with the leftovers on my table after a long day of work at one of my favorite spots. The carafe at the back is the bottom half of the Siphon coffee maker. The best way to make coffee on those days when something lighter than an espresso is called for.

Shameless plug warning

My new photo related iPad app just dropped. And I am shamelessly plugging it. Hopefully the accompanying photos will be worthwhile to have in your stream next to the sales pitch.

I am also launching a coffee project to honor the chemicals and establishments that helped me through the many days of development.

What does the app do, you ask?
It is an iPad based off-camera lighting app (works on the iPhone too, although smaller) called "Illuminant". You can light your subjects with it on those days you don't have your lights with you. This photo is made using the app as the key light source.

Night shades

Project 52 B&W
Week 36: Shades

I must be seriously zonked. I thought this week was shades - and from the looks of it, I didn't post at all last week.
Where did the week go? Well, I was trying to hit a deadline for some apps before iOS 7 hit, and was practicing multiphasic sleep for 2 weeks. I was almost thinking I got nothing for this week, so I will skip it, then I saw this guy at a pub tonight with mirrored sunglasses. And I thought I found my photo for the week. 
FWIW...

Join me Monday Night for a FREE online Webinar called "A Walk in Paris"

I did one of these after my trip to Cuba (called "Connecting with Cuba") and it was really well received, so I thought we'd do one about my images and photo book from Paris last week. If you're into travel photography, I've got lots of practical photography and Photoshop tips for you, and I'll be taking your questions and comments live on the air.

Plus we'll talking about my Worldwide Photo Walk (I held a local walk in Paris, and participated in a friend's walk there as well). I've got lots of fun stuff to share and some really helpful photo tips,so I hope you can join me (it's Free) at 7:00 pm ET Monday at http://www.kelbytv.com/onair --  Also, can you help me spread the word? :) [NOTE: If you can't make the live broadcast, we'll start free... more »

Decay

Week 35: Decay

Wrecked ship in Fraser River. 2' 30" exposure.
Processed for the old timey look, and cloned out some modern things (construction crane in the background and the radar dome on the boat) to keep up with the old timeyness.

On white chocolate

Project 52 B&W
Week 32: On White 

Another Plan B shot after getting foiled by Plan A.
Went and got these nice white chocolate squares to use as my base, planning to have the shiny surface create some light play with the flash, but unfortunately by the time I got home they were a melted mess, so we get the box instead.

White chocolate and coffee beans. If you haven't tried it yet you haven't lived.

Project 52 B&W
Week 27: Panoramic 

Easy peasy topicwise, but not so technically. Having got accustomed to shooting raw, shooting jpg with the iPhone and getting all the shades of gray without blowing the highlights was difficult (also thinking that whatever I did, the iPhone panorama app just ignored my setting attempts)

I happened to be on Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah this week with storm clouds coming in and out, so there were a lot of opportunities.
I surely am not Ansel Adams, but here we go.

Arch

Project 52 B&W

#P52BW13  | +Project 52 B&W 
Curated by +Tisha Craw +Susan Porter +Lauri Novak 

So, this week I happened to be in NYC for the architecture theme, and I  said yay lots of buildings to shoot. But then I realized there is no photo of any building I can make which would be original. 
So I went another way - there is more to architecture in NYC than skyscrapers.

Here is a tunnel arch under a road in Central Park. It has an interesting ceiling, covered with wooden slats, which give an interesting look when the bright outside light reflects on them.
