Find Shawna at www.shawnacoronado.com @115190554201070145321 - Director/Producer of Farmageddon; The Unseen War on American Family Farms.  She is a first-time film maker, small farm advocate, fresh milk drinker and a mom.  One of her children was ridden with multiple allergies and asthma as a pre-schooler, and when medications couldn’t help him, she found that raw milk helped him recover.  Since then, she has tried to buy most of her family’s food directly from local, organic farms. When Kristin learned that farmers and co-ops all over the country were increasingly getting raided by the government, she set out to  make a film about it. She hopes that when people see it, it can change the tide of public pressure so that our government stops harassing and adding costly burdens to our small, organic farmers. Kristin lives in Concord, Massachusetts with her husband, four children, two dogs , two cats and 11 chickens. @106506914071969243397 Cost Effective Sustainability in a Modern Day World2014-08-07 21:00:00154

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132

Maki Silberberg0FOOD PHOTOGRAPHERS CIRCLE!A little while ago +Isabelle Fortin asked the G+ World if anyone knew of any food photographers she could circle.  Any mention of "Food" and "photography" in one sentence gets my attention so I decided to help her out with what she started.  Lo and behold, 270 people later, we have a circle.  And I have lots of new friends :DSpecial thanks to +Mary Helen Leonard and +Gabriel Bucataru who both had significant food photography circles in progress and shared it with usIf you're interested in food and/or photography, this is the circle to add!  If you're hungry, make sure to go get something to eat before checking out these people's delicious photographs ;)  You've been warned! 2012-11-30 20:41:1827018512

Beautiful monarch butterfly resting on an echinacea. Photo taken at +Chicago Botanic Garden during a garden expedition. I was taking photos of an echinacea flower bed when this little monarch randomly landed and began to sup. I love the light in this shot. :-)

My kiddo announced, "I want my own garden!"

Way back in 2009 Kevin Gragg (cameraman extraordinaire) shot an Oklahoma Gardening TV segment with hostess Kim Toscano and me focused on water-saving tips for hot/dry container gardening. It's finally up today on YouTube (6 years later) - the tips are still great sustainable & drought tolerant ideas. Check it out - http://youtu.be/90c47hyt1Qo

(Special Note** - I would no longer recommend water crystals after seeing the most recent research).

Ever heard of gardening with that enables you to plant 30 plants or more in less than a 2 foot square area floor space? My new book, "Grow a Living Wall - Create Vertical Gardens With Purpose" teaches you how to grow large amounts of plants with low-to-no weeds in small spaces like patios and balconies. Please check out my book and get an advanced copy here - http://goo.gl/GOYAY0. Thanks!

How to Improve your Photography with Filters
http://theplanetd.com/how-to-improve-your-photography-with-formatt-hitech-filters/

When I started getting serious about my landscape photography, one of the first accessories I wanted to add to my kit was a set of ND Filters that would allow me to get the best image in camera that I could.
This is always something I have been striving for.
The more I can achieve in camera the less time I have to spend on post production. My current +Formatt-Hitech filters allow me to accomplish this.

What an amazing photo - a songbird has to eat in the winter and here his is being simply adorable with the berry held right in his beak. :-)

Pic 4 Today: Robin in winter...
I went out briefly yesterday when it finally warmed up into the double digits to look, among other things, for the flock of Robins that winter in Kennebunk to see if the Western Tanager is still with them. They were not in the neighborhood where they were a week ago when I went looking and did find the Tanager, but when I went down to Roger’s Pond to check on Eagles and ducks at the edge of the ice on the Mousam River, the whole flock was there. They were eating berries from an ornamental tree that grows near the picnic shelter. I am not sure what kind of tree it is, but it is heavy with clusters of red fruit that look a little like cherries. The Robins love them, but they are right at the limits of what a Robin can swallow whole. They hold them in their beaks for a few seconds, apparently getting up the courage to toss them up and catch when with their mouths open. When it works, the fruit goes down whole. It does not, apparently, work as often as the Robins would like. The whole flock was cycling in and out of this one tree, no bird sitting longer than it took to harvest a single fruit. The Tanager was not with them, that I saw, but I got some good shots of the Robins feeding. The early afternoon winter light was perfect. I know, it is only an American Robin, but in Maine, in winter, we can not be picky! And I think the shot stands well on its own on its compositional merits.

Sony HX400V at 1200mm equivalent field of view. Shutter preferred. 1/640th @ ISO 500 @ f6.3. Processed in Lightroom on my Surface Pro 3 tablet. This shot shows the advantage of a small sensor super-zoom.  Notice the depth of field that has the bird, beak to feet, in focus at the same time. And yet it still produces effective bokeh in the background. :)

I love this hummingbird's outstretched wings. A balm for the cold winter soul!

A Hummingbird's Dance!

Watching this bird "dance" around the flower is a spectacle of nature.

To be able to capture the sense of what I see through the lens is much more then a technical achievement.  After posting many images of hummingbirds here on so many websites, the feedback has been overwhelming.

People enjoy the beauty, and the sense of freedom.  Imagine - all they need to do is visit a flower once in a while, and rest, what a life!  What we don't see in the images is how much they fight!  A dominant bird will tale over a flower, and not let anyone else in for a drink.  This is the real nature of these birds.  They can be very nasty!

All natural light, no flash ever used.

As a photographer, we share the pretty side, as a naturalist, we see the reality.  I hope you enjoy my hummingbird images, more from Ecuador starting in one week!
