|Celine Chamberlin||18,087||THERE BE AWESOME PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THIS HERE CIRCLEIt's been a while since I last shared this circle, so I thought I'd take a minute to do so again. I've made some additions since my last share.This is my circle of photographers who kick some major backside. They post quality work and I admire what they do. That's all.About the list:I don't pay attention to whether anyone follows me back. Some do, some don't. Doesn't matter.I don't add people because they ask, I add them because I truly enjoy their photos. It's a personal thing (so please don't ask to be added... thanks).If you've been notified (in your notification area) about this circle, that means you're in it. I promise I won't bug you about other things. :)That's about it. Please take a look at the photographers listed here. They be awesome and stuff.||2012-04-06 23:38:19||166||12||1||12||CC G+|

I think this has a little something to do with her incredible mentor, +Nathan Wirth and the interactions with superstars like +Joel Tjintjelaar , but mostly it is due to her passion and vision.Athena happens to a beautiful person too, both inside and out, and is such an amazing and integral part of the G+ photographic community. A big welcome to thee circle, my dear friend, it has been well earned!! :-)All the amazing artists in this circle are hand picked, and are as good as it gets in the long exposure world.Please add all these artists to your circles, check out their work and re-share the circle to help spread the love.Warmest regards,+Grant Murray||2012-03-24 18:18:08||75||24||5||18||CC G+|

|Athena Carey||579,128||Athena's Long Exposure Inspiration CircleThere are different forms of LE represented here: black & white, color, seaside, landscape, architectural, night skies, with filters and without. In addition these photographers range from absolute LE masters to those who are just beginning, but still creating beautiful images.The common denominator for everyone in this circle is that they do some type of Long Exposure photography (although not necessarily as their primary genre) and that LE work of theirs is lovely to me.I would like to express to everyone in this circle my sincere thanks for sharing your beautiful work, for inspiring me, for your friendship, camaraderie and in some cases for the support and mentorship. I appreciate you all. <3If you know of other inspirational LE photographers here on G+ that I have not yet found, please do recommend them in the comments. :)UPDATE: Please also add the following inspirational LE photographers. +Lori Hibbett +Frank van Es +Ed King +Kim Stevens +Jens Ceder and +Stef Sorrell #SelflessSunday||2012-01-22 14:40:27||105||63||14||58||CC G+|
|Jeff Sullivan||2,050,079||The Net Effect of Circle SharingAny time you have the release of such large circles totaling 1500 community members from one with over 880,000 contacts, there will probably be discussions on the pros and cons of circle sharing. At a high level, he added 22,000 contacts yesterday, but if even 500 of his contacts added the circles, 750,000 new connections were made in the community, more than he'll add in a month. I added 500 yesterday, and the 500 people not in his circle shares before probably added much more (so that's a highly conservative estimate). We could second-guess the process, but overall, the community is the beneficiary. Now clearly there are more people which should be recognized and included in circle shares, and many more topics than photography as well, so what I'd like to suggest is that others follow this example and similarly "pay it forward" to the community. Share your own circles, to continue and broaden the interconnection process within the community. Let's make tomorrow a #CircleSharingSunday !What do you think?-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*+Thomas Hawk * - Yesterday 10:16 AM (edited) - Public*1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (P-Z, Part 3 of 3) *1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (A-G, Part 1 of 3) http://goo.gl/WGdFw1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (G-O, Part 2 of 3) http://goo.gl/1yiS61,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (P-Z, Part 3 of 3) http://goo.gl/6nLZEI've shared my photographers circle on Google+ two times now. Once when it got to 500 and then again when it got to 1,000. Today my circle hit 1,500 so I'm sharing them again.I have to break them up into 500 person circles because this is the limit on Google+. Also Google limits the number of people you can add to circles per day so I'm going to publish my kick ass photographers circle over 3 days. Today I'm publishing A-G. Tomorrow I'll publish G-O. Friday I'll publish P-Z. By last name.In addition to the kick ass photographers in these circles I've also added three other accounts. Our new photography hangout show which will be on live tonight at 8PM PST +Photo Talk Plus as well as our show's sponsors +Drobo and +SmugMug as a way of saying thanks to them.A few notes about these circles. not to be long-winded, but…Every time I've shared my circles I've gotten haters from it. People who are upset that they are not in them. I absolutely detest that. It makes me not even want to share them because of that. These circles are not meant to be the definitive list of what photographers you should be following on Google+. These circles are simply who I have chosen to follow for photography on Google+ for my own personal consumption. I want to share them because I think YOU may also benefit from having these rich, talented, kick ass photographers in your streams.This is the circle that I browse every single day looking for great stuff to +1 and comment on Google+ and as such it reflects my own personal biases. For example. I hate looking at watermarks. This is a personal preference thing. If you use them, more power to you. It's absolutely your right. But as a consumer of photography I find them ugly and distracting and so I tend not to follow people who use them. This is not a big deal. This is not a personal attack against you if you watermark.

If you want to be added to the Emerging Photographers Group:(there is no direct entry to this 'Plus" group)Check that you are in less than 1,000 circles (there is some leeway here)Make sure that you have at least 40 images available for public viewing via G+ and/or Picasa. They can be as a gallery, with individual posts or any combination. If you haven't got 40 available images that you are willing to share go take some photographs.Then go to this page:http://www.group.as/emerging%2Bphotographers/ and enter your (or the person you are recommending) Google ID. and hit submit - I will do the rest.I will happily answer any questions, or take any suggestions here about the groups in general but I am not going to discuss individual cases - just do the above and take your chances - the whole process only takes about 20 seconds.Steve Johnson shared a circle with you.||2011-10-23 19:13:29||290||30||16||14||CC G+|

I'm still spending all of my free time on renovations. I'm really getting photo withdrawl symptoms now :)
Here's another shot from last weekend morning at Capitola. After I enjoyed the twilight colors from the overlook, I made my way down to the beach and switched back to B+W mode.

A rare color image from me ... I wanted to show my wife why I wake up so early to go shoot. Even I was startled by the lovely color on the horizon.
You can't really see a proper sunrise in the SF bay area as the east bay hills obscure the horizon line. It was quite a serene moment, and people out for an early morning walk stopped for several minutes just to take it all in. The typical urban soundtrack wasn't on yet, just this incredible natural visual sight unfolding. This image captures the reason why sunrise is my favorite time of day.

I've seen many photos of Japan with tetrapods stacked against the shoreline but I've never seen them up close before. I thought using the T/S effect to miniaturize them would look cool, making them look like a giant's collection of jacks.

Taking advantage of the heavy fog that blanketed the SF bay area couple of days ago. The sculpture is rather difficult to compose with as the left side of the frame is empty but luckily the sun burned through the fog to help sprinkle some magic on the scene.

There was a fog advisory for the bay area yesterday. Translation: attention outdoor photographers, the ocean is calling you. I've shot this particular fence about ten times now and each time I've found it lacking somehow. This time there was enough texture in the sky and the birds stayed put for me.

View of the old Davenport pier from the safety of the look-out above. The path down looks ok at the top but it drops away close to the bottom ... crazy! I spotted the alternative route to the south that is accessible at low-tide, which is probably going to be the way I take if I dare to venture down there.

Spotted this location as we were packing up from our Christmas photo shoot in Palo Alto. It was a nice change from landscape/ambient work, more challenging too as subjects do not tend to stay still longer than 1s.

View LARGE please :)
Raiding the archives for post-processing practice. This one is from my trip to Death Valley back in February. If it seems overly dark and lacking in shadow detail try viewing it large. I'm hoping there's enough detail in there to show up nicely during printing.

"Nature is painting ... day after day ...pictures of infinite beauty."
I took this image in the Norris Geyser Basin (the hottest geyser basin in YNP) in the late afternoon while the sun was setting.
Standing in the middle of the hot steam, holding my breath against the sulphurous air and patiently waiting for a gap in the mist ...
Even if I had wanted to, there was no way to improve this image by any processing.

Legend has it that +Nathan Wirth was found close to the Seal Rocks as an infant, delivered to us by the photographic gods. He was swaddled in a blanket and a camera was found nearby. This magical spot was the site of many of Nathan's first life experiences, and to this day he continues to be drawn to them for reasons unbeknownst to him.
Whenever I'm at Sutro Baths, I can't help but think of Nathan and how he must've walked every square inch of this place, just so he could inspect every last rock fragment. As I'm shooting these rocks, I'm hearing Nathan's voice in my head: "see the rock, feel the rock, be the rock...". Thanks for the inspiration Nathan :)

My latest addition to my daydreams set (aka blur-mania). I took quite a bit of time in post with this one, didn't quite know what direction I wanted to take it. Would really appreciate people's opinions on this one, my wife thought it looked very spooky!

The fog was rolling down the Marin hills but the sun was shining very brightly from the SE, which made composing towards the S difficult. These buildings were pointing the right way and I thought they gave the scene a very historical feel.

The fog was just too thick to pass up a couple of days ago. I'm still actively searching for locations for my continuing blur series but there are a number of LE seascape compositions I have my eye on if the right weather conditions arise.

More goofing around with extreme blur. It's fun abstracting with blur but after a while I find I have trouble composing regular non-blurred shots!

This lamp in "Design Within Reach" caught my eye. I liked how the shadows on the elements looked in combination with the concentric circles.
On a related note, I've been noticing quite a few posts/comments over on G+ regarding the legitimacy of phone photos. Personally, I think cameras are just light gathering devices. Regardless of the medium and post-processing effects, the captured image must still be able to stand on its own in terms of composition, story-telling and emotional impact. I can name tons of film-era processing effects that could be misused, thus rendering the effect purely as a gimmick. The same is true in the digital era. A camera is a camera is a camera ... it's always been the photographer that matters. Stepping off soap-box now :)

Playing around with the LensBaby plastic optic. It's pretty cool to use but I find the novelty can wear off quickly so composition choice is important. Personally I like the regular T/S effect more, but with this one I like the blur of the posts and the road. Thoughts?

I'm sure most of you will have noticed by now that I'm shooting different subjects/styles. I love LE seascape work and the peace and tranquility that comes with being near water, but I'm feeling the urge to rebel and try my hand at other subjects (hence my deliberate move to explore other avenues of photographic expression). The tilt-shift/focus work I've been trying lately is really starting to resonate with me and I'm curious where this path will take me.

I wanted to get a view of the Transamerica Pyramid face-on with both "fins" in view. A little Google mapping and some wandering around Broadway led me to this alleyway. This image has quite a bit of context to it so it is really not keeping in line with my more recent work, but I thought I'd try to put together a collection of TAP images from various vantage points.

Heh, totally forgot about this contest :) I try not to brag too much as there are many other photographers here much better than me, but I thought I'd post this result, just this once. I placed 2nd but I don't enter too many contests so I'm happy with the result.

I don't know about other LE photographers but I find shooting architecture much harder than water. The choice of clouds is important to get nice soft lines, you need full sun for contrast and of course finding the right composition without having security guards harass you :). I'm not too sure about the clouds with this one, a little too thick. But man, this building is sure photogenic!

The Vaillancourt sculpture/fountain in San Francisco really isn't the most beautiful art installation when you look at it as a whole. But as you walk into it and focus on particular sections you can find some very wonderful abstract compositions.

First of all I think Michael's work – for me – belongs up there with the best of the best. I can look at his work for hours.
I can watch this video over and over and over again. Winter is just a month and a half away here in Alberta. And this video made me remember what I'm about to endure again for the next 5 months and how much fun it is to photograph pristine things.
Highly inspirational. It makes me wanting to grab my camera and go out and shoot snowscapes.

My 24mm T/S broke (tilt knob came off, repair part is coming from Japan in 4 weeks). So I'm back to exploring the usual suspects until I get the lens fixed. I haven't tried too many high-key seascapes so I'm interested in what everyone has to say about this one.
I'm getting absolutely no feedback on flickr even though I asked for it, so I don't know if this really sucks or everyone has finally fled the site.
