Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425004CC G+

Gailen Mapes62,283Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  M - 8 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-08 10:52:561412210CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432633258CC G+

Markos Giannopoulos18,370The smiling circle! // Checking my profile on +CircleCount, I found out that someone added a "smile" tag on it. Tags is a feature on Circlecount where you can add tags on your profile to show what kind of content you post, but other people can add tags as well. So, some kind person added a "smile" tag on me. Whoever you are, thank you!Apparently, there are more people with the tag (see http://bit.ly/1ftgCJw), but for easier access to some positively-charged people, I've created a circle out of this list using +Circloscope. Included are some highly succesfull people, so perhaps there is some correlation.  :) That said, you should head over to circlecount.com, find your favorite similing person and add the smile tag on his/her profile ;) #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles #publiccirclesproject #reshare #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles #sharingcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #share   #shared   #followers   #addcircles #publicsharedcircles   #share   #addpeople   #addcircle #addfriends   #circle   #socialmedia     #influencers   #influencer   2014-03-12 12:30:108110117CC G+

Stephan Spelde8,664My Inspirational CircleEver since I joined Google plus in the end of the year 2011 I have been looking for those special ones. Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930CC G+

There's something so wonderful about seeing these kids so excited to be here. It makes me wonder how many future Googlers are running around in front of me. :)

I freaking love #AutoAwesome  Movies

Recently, a whole bunch of us on the Google+ team moved to a new part of campus here at Google HQ. One of the cool new things about our location is that we now have our own batting cage! It's a perfect way to blow off some steam that, you know, can come with the job. :)

In any case, I was joined by my fellow Google Photos and Events colleagues, +Dave Cohen, +Tim St. Clair and +Michele Winsky. All I did was take a few video clips and stills with my Nexus 5.

That's basically it.

I mean, honestly. A little bit later, I got a notification from Google+ that I had a new Auto Awesome Movie ready. Cool! I had almost forgotten that I had taken those clips. Now, when I tell you this, you really have to trust me - the video that Google delivered to me was about 90% ready to go. The theme, the pacing, andt... more »

Achievement Unlocked: Have your photo displayed on the Nasdaq Billboard in Times Square for Earth Day!

Sorry for the self-indulgent post, everyone - this is just so cool for me, I had to share.

I received this image this morning from a friend on our Google+ Partners team, letting me know that a selection of my photos that were used by Google+ and +TIME to celebrate #MyBeautifulEarth  are being displayed on the gigantic and famous Nasdaq billboard in Times Square, New York City! This is profoundly sentimental for me on several fronts. It's really an honor for me to have some of my photos selected by Time editors to be displayed in this fashion, in the very heart of the city where I was born and raised in... it is extremely sentimental. I am a devout reader of +TIME Magazine and their Lightbox section easily showcases some of the best and most moving photos everca... more »

The traffic goes Vrroooom!

My initial reaction to finding out that I'd be climbing to the top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge in +Australia was that of pure delight. It was quickly followed by the wrath of a thousand hot flames when I was told that cameras were pretty much strictly forbidden. And then a calm wave of happy happy joy joy swathed over me like a favorite blanket when I was told that we had media passes secured, allowing each of us in our +Topdeck Travel group to bring any one camera body and lens. For safety's sake, there were always at least two points of contact between the camera and the photographer and there was more than enough slack in the lines for a full range of motion.

Finding a cool, compelling angle wasn't too difficult given the awesome view that you have this high above traffic. If any of you ever played Half Life 2 (probably the greatestg... more »

These last few days

Well, we're in a full-on packing frenzy, trying to make sure that we take what we need and donate what we don't. This time next week, I should be settling into my new home back in Portland, OR. I'm really thankful to be able to continue on with Google and work out of the downtown PDX office while also returning back to MTV on a monthly basis. All in all, it is working out quite nicely.

I'm just really excited to be heading back to the city that I fell in love with and came to call home.

Forward movement

Day 2 since returning from 4 weeks of crazy travel - things are slowly starting to fall back into place. It has been great to reconnect with my colleagues here in the office and the jetlag will hopefully dissipate by the weekend. All in all, life is nice. I hope the same can be said for you guys!

Hooroo, Australia!

Well, today marks four weeks since I had left the Bay Area for a whirlwind trip to Tokyo and all around Australia. During that time, I was able to meet up with some great old friends and take on some fantastic new ones. I even got to give a big hug to +Gretchen Chappelle, a wonderful and artistic soul who I've known for a few years here on Google+ and was finally able to HIRL. I had the fortune of visiting some remarkable locations and even got to witness some of them under extremely rare circumstances. In all, it truly has been a memorable month and I sincerely want to thank +Lauren Bath, +Matt Glastonbury and the wonderful folks at +Topdeck Travel for putting on such a great time. But now, I'm ready to kick off the 14 hour flight back home and see my family, get reconnected with my colleagues, and prep for the move back to Portland.

I'm in Sydney for a few more days and am putting together a photowalk with +Matt Glastonbury, +Lauren Bath and a bunch of friends!. We're meeting up tomorrow, Saturday, April 12th at 2:30PM on the stairs of the Sydney Opera House. The walk will kick off at 3PM and we'll shove off from there. I hope to see you there!

Uluru's 1%

In the wake of the unprecedented amount of rainfall we experienced in Uuru and Yulara over the past few days, it turns out that this +Topdeck Travel crew managed to experience an occurrence that less than 1% of all visitors ever get to see: a flowing waterfall at the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Coincidentally, the local news station here covered this rare occurrence, which is where my stat is sourced from. While it may not compare to the gushing waterfalls of the US's Pacific Northwest, it was truly wonderful to witness this for myself. Thanks to the Uluru National Parks ranger who kindly kept a swarm of other tour groups at bay, minimizing any vibrations from the metal grated floor!

Sadly, today marks the last day of our epic Australian adventure, although a small group of us are staying back in Sydney through Sunday for extended play!

When lightning greets Uluru

I think it has rained non-stop since we arrived in +Australia's Northern Territory. Normally, this would be a reason to be bummed but along with the rain can come some pretty epic storm clouds. Thankfully, that was the case on our last evening visiting Uluru. When we arrived here for sunset, we were greeted with one of the most menacing arrays of clouds that I've ever seen.

As they approached us, several bolts of lightning flashing, causing all of the +Topdeck Travel photographers to shift their attention from the giant rock to capturing the crack of lighting bolts. As the storm passed over our heads, I noticed the lightning start striking closer and closer to Uluru, whereas a few minutes prior, it was literally 180-degrees behind us.

Uluru and the elements

We really did have the best of intentions this morning. The alarm went off at 4:30AM, managed to get a quick shower in, and headed off to meet the rest of the +Topdeck Travel photographers on our shuttle. The goal was to be the first ones at the gate of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in +Australia's Northern Territory (a mission that we accomplished). Being the first ones there ensured we'd get primo spots for sunrise at the designated viewing area, however the elements had their own agenda.

While there was no real sunrise to speak of, we were able to reap the benefits of this inclement weather by capturing a swath of fog rolling across the top of Uluru. Apparently, this is fairly rare to capture, so despite the steady rain that we're having, I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to experience this phenomenon.

In the shadow of Uluru

Yesterday afternoon, the we landed at Connellan Airport near Yulara. We’re spending the next few days out in the bush, exploring Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock), Alice Springs, and other points within Australia’s vast Northern Territory outback. After getting settled into our rooms, we made our way to a particular lookout that is supposed to provide a great vantage point for sunset. Because the people who run the national park that Uluru is in have such stringent restrictions around where we can and can’t photograph, or even what we can or can’t photograph, we were limited to a relatively small swath of land to set up. By the time sunset rolled around, the entire place was teeming with other visitors, all clamoring to stake a place in the ground from where to nab their own photographic memories.

As you can see in this photo, there wasn’t muchof a sunse... more »

Through the fog

While on our +Topdeck Travel shuttle coach yesterday, as we were en route to Sydney, we drove through a wooded area that was dense with fog. Everyone on the shuttle immediately began clamoring to pull the shuttle over so that we could capture the atmospheric beauty on either side of the road. Thankfully, our wonderful drive, Lee, obliged us with 20 minutes of frantic run all through the road photography time.

This was one of my favorite photos from the mini shoot. I spied this path from the bus and knew that it would be the first place I would run to. I love how much impact something as fleeting as fog can have on an image. It's nature's layer maker.

In any case, I was really glad to meet +William Patino in person over breakfast. He's a really killer photographer who I certainly recommend circling. Other than that, we're now off to ac... more »

First light over Crescent Head

Oh, how I love the Photographer's Hustle. You know what I'm talking about, I'm sure. It's that half run/half gallop that you start on when you pull up to your destination and realize that you should have been here 30 minutes earlier. That's what our group of +Topdeck Travel photographers busted into when we arrived at the parking lot of this location.

As is quickly becoming the norm, I'm realizing, Australia has some of the most beautiful weather and landscapes. And when you combine the two, especially at sunrise and sunset, you're almost always guaranteed to be left standing there, jaw agape, and in awe.

Today, we're off to a the Hunter Valley Resort for some wine tasting and grape stomping before making our way further south to Sydney. Tomorrow is goiang to be an intense day with special access to... more »

First light over Byron Bay

This morning, we departed Byron Bay as we continue onward, eventually making our way to Sydney, Uluru, Alice Springs, and the Northern Territory. Before actually making tracks, we headed out to Main Beach in Byron Bay to capture the sunrise over mainland Australia's easternmost point.. True to form, it was a beautiful, serene, and picturesque sight.

My favorite from this morning was this photo of the sun beginning to break the cliff's horizon line, with its crown of crepuscular rays, and the silhouette of the Cape Byron Lighthouse. Next up is surf camp with the +Topdeck Travel crew! #topdecker

Early man catches the fish

This morning, the lot of us woke up nice 'n early and beelined it to Tallow Beach in Byron Bay, NSW to capture what turned out to be quite a beautiful sunrise. Plenty of clouds and some crashing waves added to the overall scene quite nicely. Initially, +Lauren Bath and I had our focus on a lovely piece of driftwood that we (well, mostly Lauren) dragged down to the shore.

After spending about 15 minutes with it, I noticed this fisherman and his mate (who I masked out) make his way right out into the water, standing on some rocks that were jutting out. At first, I was bummed that I didn't have a longer lens (the longest one I have is +Nicole S. Young's Canon 70-200mm f/4IS mounted on my +Sony A7) but ultimately, it ended up working out nicely. I love how diminutive the fisherman looks in the frame, really adding gravitas to the enormity oft... more »

The Wheel of Brisbane

How many of you can relate to me here? Imagine standing at the base of this giant ferris wheel in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Your knee jerk instinct is to get the entire bloody thing in the frame. It's something that you. must. do. So you do, then you chimp the shot, and realize that it is just so boring. There's just too much there and the whole frame is a hot mess.

So, instead, I opted to toss on the +Sony 24-70mm lens on my Sony A7 with a +Formatt-Hitech 3-stop IRND filter to drag the shutter. By tossing out the notion of having to fit it all in, I was free to get creative and compose in more unorthodox, yet visually appealing, ways. As soon as I saw this frame, I knew I had what I wanted and it was all because I abandoned convention.

One wrong turn

Today, I'm joining a group of wonderfully talented photographers, such as +Matt Glastonbury, +Lauren Bath, +jn and others, on an adventure throughout Australia, put together by the fine folks at +Topdeck Travel. To whet our appetites, we spent the day at the Tangalooma Island Resort located on Moreton Island in Queensland. One of the first things we had an opportunity to photograph was this array of shipwrecks just off the coast of the resort that now serve as ad-hoc breakers. It was really wonderful to see the variety of vessels that were jutting out from the water's surface.

To get this photo, I stacked my +Formatt-Hitech 10-Stop IRND filter and 105mm circular polarizer filter (also by Formatt-Hitech), giving me about 12 stops of light loss. This let me drag my shutter to 30-seconds - enough time to glass out the water, provide some movement to theb... more »

Good on ya, Brisbane

I arrived in Brisbane yesterday afternoon to kick off a 10-day trek kicking off here and then heading to Byron Bay, Alice Springs, Uluru, Sydney and points in between. I'm joined with a cadre of other photo influencers from Google+ and Instagram, all really wonderful people. We're working with the great folks at +Topdeck Travel, who arranged this trip and specialize in this sort of adventure tourism around the great Down Under.

Towards the end of the trip, we're going to kick of a fun Google+ Photowalk/Instameet in Sydney. Detail to come!

I took this photo with my +Sony A7 and the Sony FE 24-70mm lens. No filters needed given the night light conditions. Stylization was done using one of +Nicole S. Young's Lightroom presets.

So very many

On one of my last nights in Tokyo, +Trey Ratcliff and I beelined it to the famously chaotic Shibuya Station intersection. I had visited this area a few days prior, mid-afternoon with +Mark Louie, and can honestly say that you must visit this area at night. It immediately reminded me of Times Square, except with way more neon and people. What was also so cool to see was the dizzying array of pedestrian crosswalks going in all sorts of directions. 

I took a bunch of 2.5" exposures with my +Sony A7 and my precious +Really Right Stuff tripod. during every crossing session, trying to capture the throngs of people swarming through, like schools of fish. After that, I took a quick bracket series for the background and blended it all together. Normally, I'd remove a lot of the CA from the image but in this case, I actually really dig the way it lends itself tothe... more »

Look through the trees

Late last night, +Matt Glastonbury and I ventured out to photograph the stars. Satellite imagery gave us a good indication that we may be able to see the aurora australis (aka the southern lights). So, we headed out to a gorgeous vista that Matt and +Francois Fourie took me to earlier this week. Alas, what we thought was an aurora glow turned out to be atmospheric air glow according to Francois (Matt disagrees on this).

Still, we had a perfectly clear sky filled with stars and a beautiful showing of our Milky Way galaxy. It was the perfect opportunity to test the Timelapse app that Sony recently released through their Play Memories app (it costs $10). I took a few test shots to get my focus, exposure and framing locked in. Once I did, I took about 47 exposures with my +Sony A7 & Canon 14mm/f2.8 lens at f/2.8, 30 seconds each, ISO 1250 (no noisere... more »

Google +1 Year

On March 25th, 2013, I kicked off my first day here at Google. I remember sitting in a big conference room with 70 or so other Nooglers, taking in all of the basic information about Google and its culture. I remember feeling my jaw fall open at the influx, deluge really, of new data being presented to me. I remember +Josh Haftel picking me up from orientation like a proud papa would with his kid's first day at school. On Day 2, I remember squatting at +Dave Cohen's desk while he was on vacation and pelting a thousand questions at my two new colleagues, +Vincent Mo and +Aravind Krishnaswamy. I still get a chuckle at the rate of questions that I asked them. Since then, I've made it a point to offer the same patience and guidance to Nooglers who are in the same need of answers. Everything beyond Day 2 has been a blur of whimsy and amazement.

Oh what tangled webs

Just outside of Google's Tokyo office in the Mori Tower of Roppongi is a giant spider. It stands watch, waiting for its next meal while protecting the area's gentle denizens. She is not one to be toyed with and was gracious enough to pose for me. I was quick to get my photos and head off before she got hungry again.

In actuality, this spider sculpture is titled "Maman" by Louise Bourgeois. This photo was taken with my +Sony A7 and edited with Nik Analog Efex Pro.

I feel that if I actually know someone whose chosen livelihood is being disparaged, even in a passive-aggressive way, they should be aware of it, too, in the event that they want to take the opportunity to retort. I'm glad to see that Lauren has chosen to do so while retaining poise, dignity and professionalism. I haphazardly came across your article thanks to the Google+ hook that allows a commenter to (optionally) create a post with their comment.

In full disclosure, I am actually joining Lauren and a handful of other talented photographers/instragrammers/marketers/social media pundits/artists/whatever you wish to refer to them as next week on a 10-day trip sponsored by an Australian tourism company. So, given that I would be spending an extended amount ofti... more »

Tassie

I can't believe I have the fortune of being able to visit Tasmania twice in as many years. I was here this time last year and instantly fell in love with this quaint island state of Australia. This time, I have the opportunity to spend more quality time exploring its beauty with two lovely people, +Matt Glastonbury and his wife, +Mia Glastonbury. During the day, it's work as usual while trying to beat the international date line between here and back home (although it is kinda cool being a day into the future. But once the sun starts to settle, it's all about hitting various coastlines to capture the stunning sunsets that this area has to offer this time of year.

Vigilance

Another highlight from my recent visit to Tokyo was checking out the life-sized Gundam statue near the DiverCity Tokyo Plaza in Odaiba with +Trey Ratcliff, +Mark Louie, and +May Fukuyama. As a guy who grew up with the Transformers, Robotech, and Voltron during my formative kid years, seeing this enormous figure was especially awesome. The first few photos I took were with my ultra-wide angle lenses but I quickly realized that something was lost with that, so I switched to my longer lenses and opted to capture some more compelling sections and poses. This photo was taken with my +Sony A7 and the Sony FE 24-70 (courtesy of +BorrowLenses.com).

Despite having a beautiful sunset, the sky itself was pretty bland, so I masked it out and replaced it with a stock cloud image and applied a motion blur in Photoshop to give it some more impact. Originally, I had the clouds moving... more »

Walkabout

Despite the rain, we managed to find a number of wonderfully ornate pedestrians during our #CoolJapan  photowalk. I hipshot this photo with my +Sony A7 and Sony 55mm/1.8.

Celebrating how #COOLJAPAN  really is!

Yesterday, our Google+ team in Tokyo kicked off a really fantastic new project in association with #100Tokyo  (sponsored by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry/METI), hence my primary reason for being here in this absolutely breathtaking city. In an effort to share the global message of how wonderful, fun, and quirky Japan really is, we've launched a new partner site where anyone can share their own photos and experiences in and around Japan.

To share, just tag your photos with #COOLJAPAN  and #100Tokyo . You can see the site here: http://www.google.co.jp/campaigns/cooljapan/ 

A personal thanks to +Negoro Kaori, +Hisaya MURATA, +Mark Louie, +Trey Ratcliff, and +Tammy Capistrant for making it possible for me to be here and for putting on such a memorable event yesterday.Ka... more »

One of my personal goals while visiting Tokyo was to enjoy a wonderful bowl of steamy ramen that didn't have the name Cup O' Noodles on it. With rain and cold winds falling down on us in Roppongi today, +Trey Ratcliff, +Mark Louie and I beelined it from the Mori Tower to the Ippudo Ramen House. After devouring that bowl, I can't ever look at those Styrofoam cups the same way again.

I took this photo with my +Sony A7 and transferred over to my Nexus 5 over WiFi in between spoonfuls of soupy noodles. I then edited it in +VSCO for Android and shared here. Badabing. Badaboom.

They'll let anyone in here

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of rendezvousing with mate, +Trey Ratcliff, out here in Tokyo. He's here to help support us in a very awesome campaign that we'll be posting about very soon. Despite having lost luggage (gotta love three connection itineraries), Trey was in usual great spirits. We had a blast shooting from the roof of the Mori Tower (where the Google Tokyo office is) and even got to experience this wicked Lexus installment. Trey and I took video of it and will share soon, too.

And now I can finally say that I have had a traditional sushi dinner in Tokyo and it was beyond delicious. It might as well have been butter.

I took this photo handheld with my +Sony A7 with the Canon 15mm Fisheye Funkbuster lens on. I freaking love focus zoom magnification.

Fluidity in Tokyo

If there is a singular theme that I would tack onto my experience in Tokyo thus far, it'd be motion. The Japanese people here have a fluidity and cadence that is mesmerizing. I've made it my unofficial project to capture this fluidity and share it here.

I am joined my MTV colleague, +Mark Louie, who had the great idea of taking advantage of us being awake at an obscenely early time and tour around Shibuya and Shinjuku, hence this photo.

I took this photo with my +Sony A7 and the Sony FE 24-70. I transferred the full res jpeg via WiFi to my Nexus 5 and stylized it using +VSCO for Android all while eating a small breakfast at some cafe. This truly is where we're going, friends. I've said it before, this workflow is exceptionally viable for the bulk of my image taking/editing/sharing purposes and if it helps me get a cool image out to... more »

Tokyo drift

After spending the day working out of the Google Tokyo office, I started feeling a bit of jetlag onset, so I took an hour and roamed around random streets and alleys in Roppongi with my camera gear. It was the perfect remedy to clear my head and take in my new surroundings. Despite the crazy amount of stuff here, it is not without a certain order. Nothing feels chaotic or random - there is simply a lot of everything condensed in extremely interesting ways. Thus far, though, Tokyo very much agrees with me. It truly is an amazing place.

I took this photo with my +Sony A7 while testing out the new Sony FE 24-70mm/f4 lens that the kind folks at +BorrowLenses.com sent over.

Good morning, Tokyo

One of the advantages to my body clock being out of whack is waking up feeling like a million bucks at 4:30AM. If only I could sustain that beyond this trip. :)

I took this photo about an hour ago from my hotel window here in Roppongi. I was so exhausted last night that I didn't even bother to check my compass or The Photographer's Ephemeris to see where the sun would rise, so you could imagine my happiness when I saw that yellow ball pop up right alongside the Tokyo Tower. I've been going back to the window every 15 minutes or so and have been amazed at how dramatically the landscape changes. We now have clouds coming through! :)

I took this with my +Sony A7 and +Nicole S. Young's Canon 70-200/f4 through the hotel window. I had use my black hoodie as a cover for me and the camera, removing any unwanted glare. Thankfully, the... more »

Tasmania on my mind

By this time tomorrow, I'll hopefully be nearing the end of my flight from San Francisco to Tokyo, Japan. I've got just about everything packed and ready but despite this being my first time to the country, a large amount of my thoughts are on Tasmania, an area I visited last year and is easily my favorite part of Australia (no offense to locals from other regions - all of Australia really is wonderful). I took this photo on a perfectly foggy morning at Curringa Farm (http://www.curringafarm.com.au/) and am already counting the days before I get to visit more of these lovely gum trees.

Fortunately, I'll have a full week working out of Rose Bay as my good mate, +Matt Glastonbury, and his lovely wife, +Mia Glastonbury, have opened their home to me. The week after that, we set off on a crazy 10-day trip around various parts of Australia's... more »

The voyage about to ensue

On Sunday, I'm kicking off a 3.5 week trip, longer in duration than any trip I've ever taken, that will bring me to the Google Tokyo office and various parts of Australia. I know that there is a Robot Restaurant involved, as well as getting together with my buds, +Trey Ratcliff and +Matt Glastonbury. Most of the day-to-day plans are still forming but I'm ridiculously excited to visit these areas.

If you need me before then, I'll be the one pacing around, trying to think of what gear I should pack and what I should leave behind. :)

So I think it's safe to say that I'm now a +Formatt-Hitech photographer :)

The long and the short of it is that I've become pretty disenchanted with my Lee Filter system for quite a while. The color casts produced by them has been frustrating to say the least.

So, my interest was piqued when my fellow photog friends like +Colby Brown, +Joel Tjintjelaar, +Joe Azure and +Michael Bonocore extolled the quality of these filters. So, you could imagine my excitement when I had a box sitting at my door filled with this full complement of filters and adapters, including the prescious Lucroit holder and filters for my beloved Canon 17mm Tilt Shift lens.

With a 3.5 week trip to Tokyo and Australia starting this Sunday, you can bet that I'll be sharing a ton of long exposures using this gear.

My #PlusOneCollectionIII  Selection - Fingerlings

I took this photo about 13 months ago and it still is one of my favorite that I've ever taken in my life. Silver Falls State Park in Oregon is an especially magical place and I can think of no better image that I'd want to have representing me in the third volume of the +Plus One Collection than this.

On a more important note, I really want to thank +Ivan Makarov, +Andy Lee and the rest of the team for all of the selfless hours put into bringing a 3rd annual volume of beautiful imagery taken by the very people who make this Google+ community so rich... all while helping to support a truly worthy cause. I'm honored to be a part of this endeavor.

Rough around the edges

It's pretty amazing to see how much vibrance can be captured in just one half second. From click to click, a totally different story, pattern, and vibe can be seen. Poetic, no?

The image was taken with my +Sony A7 and Canon 24-70mm/2.8L II. Editing was done in Lightroom.

A Half-forgotten Dream

The original plan was for Uncle +Barry Blanchard and I to scramble down to the beachhead here at the old Davenport Pier. The apps that we looked at predicted that the tide would be in our favor given that our path brought us pretty close to the shoreline. Reality, I must assume, didn't download the same Tides app that Barry had and messed with out timetables, forcing us to be content with taking our photos from the cliff above.

It all worked out in the end because a few days after, we took another crack at it and made it down with the entire beach to ourselves (and with +Karen Hutton & +Laurie Rubin).

I took this long exposure with my +Sony A7 and applied a base +VSCO preset which I then modified to taste.

Fluidity and opposition

Of everything I've ever photographed, everything, the one that I could fully steep myself into without ever getting tired or bored is this sort of nature photography. I only discovered this a few years ago, when I moved to the Pacific Northwest, and had regular exposure to these sorts of environments. There is so much poeticism and elegance here and as I walk along these streams, I keep looking for new ways to arrange the seemingly haphazard within the four walls of my frame.

If this was the last and only thing I'd be able to photograph for the rest of my life, I'd die very content.

Time tested

I certainly didn't give Hamburg its due on my recent visit there. One of my favorite things about the few hours spent roaming around the downtown area was turning a corner and being presented with a beautiful, regal church. The biggest challenge was figuring out ways to create compelling compositions and not just fill the frame with the entire structure. I really do find that limited your viewers to focus on a smaller part of the larger picture yields more curiosity and interest.

Berl-in motion

I just returned home from spending three days at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, attending the 2014 #WPPI  conference. After what I thought would turn out to be a waste of time, I'm now sitting back, reflecting on the wonderful new friends and industry relationships forged as well as catching up with a slew of familiar faces from back in my onOne days. What is interesting (to me, at least) is that this is the very first trip that I can remember where I didn't take a single photo with my camera. It's not that I didn't have it with me... I just never actually reached for it. Go figure.

For some reason, I guess, this little bit of reflection time manifested itself in me editing this photo of some travelers taken at a pristine Berlin subway station. I sat on this bench for about 20 minutes, trying to capture these ephemeral slices of time of people who... more »
