Jeff Sullivan2,019,647+Lori Hibbett and I and I will try to be shooting on the rocks by around 6:30 to capture golden hour light. Sunset is at 7:18, so the best sky color will be from then until 7:40 or so. Then we'll have some "blue hour" twilight for another 20-30 minutes, the light painting can start by 8, and stars will be gradually strengthening from then through 8:30 for night shots. If we're getting some good light and reflections off the beach making light orbs and so on, we can shoot to 9 or whenever we get thirsty.No problem if you're late given work, school and weekday traffic, we should be able to stay entertained shooting in the changing light for at least 2-2.5 hours.  We'll go to a bar or restaurant for another hour or two after that.This free social event is open to all; you're welcome to bring your photographer friends (on Flickr, Meetup, 500px, from your local photography club, etc.) We're looking forward to seeing those of you we've met out shooting in recent years, and meeting those of you we haven't shot with yet!We'd like to explore the area known as Hospitals Reef or Draper Villas, the rocks adjacent to Coast Boulevard Park 0.7 miles south of La Jolla Cove (see map).  We'll also shoot El Matador State Beach in Malibu April 11 and Little Corona Beach April 14.Sunset Photowalk La Jolla Monday April 152013-04-15 18:30:0030

Dubie Bacino112,659Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (13th Edition)>> Let's connect on Tsu! https://www.tsu.co/opajdara << This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me -@Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU , connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara.

Gailen Mapes71,115Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera 5 - 11 of 31Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-11 11:53:11177003

Gailen Mapes68,908Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 11 of 31Note: 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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 +2014-10-11 11:21:21182217

Death Valley in December
As I plan a trip to Death Valley next month for the Geminid Meteor Shower, I'm reviewing and adding photos to my Geminid Meteor Shower album from Death Valley in 2012.  It's up to 55 photos so far: 
https://plus.google.com/b/116469806647181209109/photos/116469806647181209109/albums/5850004016571453425

Since I've been taking a lot of trips there during the 6 months the park is most comfortable to visit each year, I'm breaking down albums photo by year over on my +Death Valley Workshops page on G+ so the albums don't get too large.

Image Buyers Are Using 500px Prime
I put about 50 photos into the +500px Prime licensing service when it was released a few months ago, and I didn't give it a second thought.  I went back and checked yesterday, and I had $354 in royalties waiting for me.  The average $7 per image won't buy me a new camera, but if I had uploaded a couple of high quality photos per day, the few hundred dollars might have been a few thousand.

Image buyers can get a 20% discount by using the code "jeffsullivan" when they license a photo there.  Go license mine!

Photographers, pop on over and say "Hi": http://500px.com/JeffSullivan

Full disclosure: I have no financial or business relationship with +500px other than those royalties I've earned.  I'll probably use the site more often now that there's clear incentive.

Black and White Software Trials
I converted a few images to black and white using +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5, Silver Efex in the +Nik Collection by Google, and +onOne's Perfect Effects 8.  In some cases I also pre-processed RAW files in Lightroom and processed multiple exposures in Photomatix 5 to increase dynamic range before starting the black and white conversion.

Orionid Meteor Shower 2014
Thanks to Liz Horton and +ABC11-WTVD in Raleigh for using my Orionid Meteor shower time-lapse video from 2012 to inform viewers about the Orionid meteor shower this year.  Here's five hours of the 2014 Orionid meteor shower, condensed into a few seconds of time-lapse video.  I shot it in the high, dry, optimal dark sky viewing conditions of the Tonopah Star Trails area of Nevada, under some of the darkest skies in the world.

Here's ABC11's report informing viewers of the shower, with my much longer 2012 video: http://abc11.com/weather/orionid-meteor-shower-visible-tuesday-night-/359788/

NASA's Orion Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1) Launches December 4!
Early next month +Lori Hibbett and I will be covering NASA's Orion launch from Cape Canaveral.  Orion will launch on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS). More powerful than any rocket ever built, SLS will be capable of sending humans to deep space destinations such as an asteroid and eventually Mars. EFT-1 will be the first mission to integrate Orion and the Space Launch System.

Orion will launch atop a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Space Launch Complex Flight Test on the Orion Flight Test: a two-orbit, four-hour flight that will test many of the systems most critical to safety.

NASA’s Orion spacecraft is built to take humans farther than they’ve ever gone before. Orion will serve as the exploration vehicle that will carry the crew to space, provide emergency abort capability, sustain the crew during the space travel, and provide safe re-entry from deep space return velocities.

Follow the launch live on internet: http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html

For more information about Orion and its first space flight, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/orion

“This is just the first of what will be a long line of exploration missions beyond low earth orbit, and in a few years we will be sending our astronauts to destinations humans have never experienced,” said Bill Hill, deputy associate administrator for Exploration Systems Development “It’s thrilling to be a part of the journey now, at the beginning.”

NASA will host a preflight briefing at 11 a.m. EST Nov. 6 at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.  The news conference will be broadcast live on NASA TV and on the agency’s website.

Backlit Cottonwoods in the Mist
Colorful cottonwood trees and morning mist at Topaz Lake, on the California-Nevada border.  Fall colors aren't over quite yet!

I shot this through the living room window. I stepped outside for the next few shots but the mist wasn't quite as high by then.

Snow in the Eastern Sierra Today
This image was captured this morning in the Eastern Sierra, looking across Topaz Lake at the Sweetwater Mountains in the northern end of Mono County.  

The snow level looks to be around 7500-8000 feet, low enough to dust Bodie but it looks like we may have enough to shoot around here that I don't need to drive that far.

Abandoned Stamp Mill
It's nice to find a historical site so remote that it's not heavily vandalized, shot full of bullet holes!  This was a single 30 second exposure.  I lit the outside then ducked under the pipe in the doorway and somehow missed the holes in the floor as I lit the inside red and green.

I used a 3-color LED flashlight offering separate red, green and blue LEDs:

America's Favorite "Ghost Town"
With Fall colors, the solar eclipse and the Orionid meteor shower all packed into October, not to mention wrapping up my guidebook, I haven't had much time to look at photos from our workshops in Bodie earlier this month, but here are a few.  +Lori Hibbett and I mostly stayed out of buildings so our customers could access 14 of them.  We do run cameras during many of the night shots to monitor exposure and light painting effects.

We're done for the 2014 season after 6 sunset/night and 5 sunrise/interior access sessions.  When the 2015 dates are available, we'll publish them here: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/bodie-night-photography-workshops/

Light Painting Bodie on a Moonlit Night
We like to offer night photography workshops with a variety of moonlight scenarios.  Our latest October 4 access offered a mostly-full moon which reduces the number of visible stars, but the stronger lighting on the town enables shooting at lower ISO settings and smaller apertures.  In this 30 second exposure I lit the headlights and gas pumps while one of my customers lit the truck bed and rear window.

The Other Side of the White Mountains
On Saturday night +Lori Hibbett and I determined from the top of the White Mountains on Saturday night that Comet Siding Spring was really faint and would be difficult to pick up as it passed Mars the next day.  So we explored the area on Sunday and ended up here, where we could watch Mars set behind the White Mountains Sunday night, with or without the comet, and catch this nice sunrise on Monday.

On a Dry Lake Bed Somewhere in Nevada
+Lori Hibbett and I woke up and packed our camp near this dry lake bed earlier this week.  We were in the middle of nowhere, over an hour's drive from the nearest town big enough to have a gas station, but we saw a nondescript white pickup truck drive out onto this dry lake bed.  Three men got out and started setting something up.  We started driving out the long dirt road back towards the highway, but another white pickup truck was coming down the one lane road, so we pulled over.  The driver stopped his truck next to us, and asked if the other men had talked to us.  They hadn't.  He said that they were doing something for the military and he advised that we not go towards the far end of the lake bed.  We asked if he could tell us why.  He couldn't.

We thanked him for his advice and went on our way.  The second vehicle parked at the turnoff from the dirt road to the dry lake bed, as if to guard it.  Of course we were curious now, but whatever the three men had been doing was completely put away, and they remained by the truck doing nothing as we drove out.  You never know what you're going to encounter when you explore remote areas of Nevada, but it's often something interesting.

Solar Eclipse at 640mm Effective Focal Length
I was able to catch a sharper image this time around by putting my Canon EF 70-200 mm lens and 2X teleconverter on a Canon 70D "crop sensor" camera, which increased the 400 mm focal length 1.6X to 640 mm effective.  I also used a solar filter to cut the sun's radiation enough to be able to focus using 10X magnification in Live View without frying my camera sensor.

I was pleased to see that my camera sensor was able to pick up variations across the surface of the sun.

Photographing Comets
Comet Siding Spring will approach Mars tonight and pass the red planet tomorrow, Sunday October 19, 2014. I performed many lens and exposure tests on Comet Lovejoy in late 2013 and early 2014, with and without a star-tracking mount. Here are some of the results, rendered as time-lapse video.

The music used for this clip is "My Celestial Spacesuit" by 2Placid: https://www.facebook.com/abstraktprizmuk

See my YouTube channel for more night photography:

Photographing Comets
Comet Siding Spring will approach Mars tonight and pass the red planet tomorrow, Sunday October 19, 2014. I performed many lens and exposure tests on Comet Lovejoy in late 2013 and early 2014, with and without a star-tracking mount. Here are some of the results, rendered as time-lapse video.

Orionid Meteor Shower Underway, Peaks October 20-21
If you'd like to see some shooting stars, you'll have an excellent chance on the next few nights as the Orionid meteor shower increases in intensity, peaking on the night of October 20-21.  Orionid meteors are created from the dust left behind from Halley's Comet as it orbits the sun.  They meteors can appear anywhere in the sky, but they appear to radiate out from the constellation Orion, which rises to the east around 11-11:30 local time.

There's a possible minor peak in the shower reported on October 17-18 as well, so I'll go out tonight in a couple of hours when Orion has cleared the horizon, and see if I can see any activity.

I created this image tonight from a sequence of a few hundred photos I captured on the night of October 20-21, 2012.  The constellation Orion rose above the horizon near the lower left corner of this 14 mm view, and it traveled to the upper right corner before dawn arrived.  I created a time-lapse video of this meteor shower as well, and I'll put that in a blog post so you can see it.

Eastern Sierra Fall Colors Last Week
We'll be back out this Friday... hopefully there will be some colorful leaves left after the winds over the last couple of days.

Eastern Sierra Fall Colors , Week of October 5 - 10
A lot has changed here in the Eastern Sierra over the last few days due to 24 hours of high winds, but here's how it looked last week.  The Mono Basin probably had the greenest trees, most likely to survive the winds, including the areas around June Lake Loop, Lee Vining Creek and Mill Creek.

Supermoon Rise Over Mono Lake
The night of the lunar eclipse last week started with the moon rise just before sunset.  I caught the moon rising at Mono Lake.  

There may be only one day a month when you can capture a moon rise at sunset like this as I describe in this old blog post from 2006:

Touch and Go
It's not uncommon for planes to practice landings here on Topaz Lake in the fall after the winds calm down and after fishing season closes and there are fewer boats on the water. But the four planes this morning practicing touch and go passes were unique: they had wheels, not pontoons!

Bodie Church in the Moonlight
Here's an awesome star trails image by +Swee Oh particularly nice since it was her first one!  Bodie is a cool place to shoot at night, and moonlight enables the town and landscape to show up well with minimal noise in your photos.

We had a full moon on that night in June 2012, and we'll enjoy similar conditions when we return to Bodie this Saturday, October 4 with the moon 84% full.

For that visit to Bodie, we gathered photos after the trip in a group on Google's +Panoramio site, it's sad to see that Google site going away.

Will Panoramio photos have their priorities similarly discounted in  after the transfer?  
(To clarify, the question was whether Views photos will trump Panoramio photos in Google Earth, since photos seem to get more engagement in Views.)
So many questions remain.

Google Tolerating Copyright Infringement Makes it Much Worse
Why does Google+ only take down one photograph when an account is clearly flooded with posts of stolen photos? 
"Images with unenforced copyrights lose their ability to generate direct income for several reasons. First is death by search engine burial. I depend on a high search ranking, as most clients arrive to my website using Google. Yet the churning tides of Facebook, 9gag, and imgur make it harder and harder for prospective customers to find my actual website in the search soup of my uncredited images. I am too often competing—and losing—against uncredited copies of my own work. If clients do track me down, they have little incentive to buy. Who wants to pay for an image that is already everywhere?"

Google+ results show up in Google Search, and G+ posts can indirectly promote infringing uses over the creator's own copies of a photo as well.  The DMCA takedown process is a minimum response; Google profits from serving ads against the infringing search results for posts it tolerates on G+.  Surely Google can do better.  Google could help content creators find and address copyright infringement, especially on Google's own services.

Last year we met +Elizabeth Hahn , +Derek Osborne , +Michelle Erskine +Tim Erskine at the crack of dawn to catch some hot air balloons flying over the Tahoe National Forest near Truckee.  Thanks to Circles, I was able to invite everyone who had expressed interest in joining us to shoot in Northern California in the past. (Hopefully the invite got through the G+ filtering algorithms, and hopefully improving and expanding Circle management functionality is high on the development list for future releases of G+.) 

Last month we were out again on August 15, enjoying the ghost town of Bodie for a night when they remained open until 10 pm, and anyone who had paid the basic $5 entry fee could stay, at no extra charge.  That was on Friday, so unfortunately not convenient timing for many people form the Bay Area or Southern California, but Derek and his father, Elizabeth, and a few former participants from my Bodie workshops were able to attend. It was a bit hectic after it got dark with car headlights, headlamps and flashlights, and even a bright lantern or two shining all over the place, but it was fun, I caught a couple of "keeper" shots, and it was (practically) free (not counting the $0.55/mile it costs to operate a car).  There were too few minutes of truly dark night skies, but it was nice to shoot "for fun" there for a change.

Landscape Photography Locations in Southern California
I've updated my Southern California album to include more locations covered in my upcoming guide book: https://plus.google.com/photos/+JeffreySullivan/albums/5870295048430764817

A limited number of locations may need to be cut to keep the book from getting too long.

The Journey of Landscape Photography and G+
I wore out my first copy of "Photographing Southwest, Volume 1 - A guide to the natural landmarks of Southern Utah" by +Laurent Martres.  I loaded up my car and went on the road full time in September 2006, as my divorce started. Landscape photography, and that book, got me through a lot of rough times in the next few years.  Eventually I started a Mono Lake and Yosemite regional guide, contacted Laurent, and by coincidence he was looking for someone to write a book to cover my home turf through San Diego! It has been a massive undertaking covering that much ground, but an amazing experience.

Most of the project has been accomplished while participating on Google+.  G+ has a unique ability to handle what I call "long form social media", so I can include more information with posts.  It also has the unique circlefun... more »

The Journey of Landscape Photography and G+
I wore out my first copy of "Photographing Southwest, Volume 1 - A guide to the natural landmarks of Southern Utah" by +Laurent Martres.  I loaded up my car and went on the road full time in September 2006, as my divorce started. Landscape photography, and that book, got me through a lot of rough times in the next few years.  Eventually I started a Mono Lake and Yosemite regional guide, contacted Laurent, and by coincidence he was looking for someone to write a book to cover my home turf through San Diego! It has been a massive undertaking covering that much ground, but an amazing experience.

Most of the project has been accomplished while participating on Google+.  G+ has a unique ability to handle what I call "long form social media", so I can include more information with posts.  It also has the unique circle functionality so I can manage notifications and interaction by subject type, including geography.  Add in Events for organizing things like photowalks, and Hangouts for capturing instructional demonstrations, and you have a formidable combination.  Thanks to the excellent collection of technologies brought to fruition by +Bradley Horowitz +Yonatan Zunger +Dave Besbris +Vic Gundotra and no doubt hundreds of engineers I may never see or meet,  we have powerful tools that can bring us together.  

That concept of bringing people together was particularly effective from the beginning thanks to excellent community managers such as +Brian Rose, who valued and encouraged photowalks.  Not only was I introduced to hundreds of photographers on G+ through photowalks, but as they occurred in Death Valley, Yosemite, the Eastern Sierra, Anza-Borrego State Park, on numerous state beaches and elsewhere, many G+ photographers were with me, in a very literal way, on the adventure of developing this book.

I've been a little busy this year sprinting done the final stretch to get this book out, but I'm looking forward to getting it out the door and getting back to more photography, and catching up, preferably in person, with many of the people around here that I haven't see in a while.

I didn't want this post to go on forever, so I've placed more on my blog.  I'm sure that I'll have a lot more to say as this project winds down:

3. Will a Facebook beta be available soon?  I haven't been able to get the Facebook Comments code to work, so having Facebook posts and comments migrate to my blog could be a partial solution (although I might still have issues if Google Analytics is unable to track the views).

A few quick questions +Daniel Treadwell...

1. What are the ramifications of including or not including the canonical reference?  I understand that Google may want to "de-duplicate"  a G+ post from its identical blog mirror post, but if my blog becomes an aggregation point for my online content, as an author I would want the Google+ post to be the one demoted, not the post on my blog, where all traffic related to my content should aggregate.

2. Do you anticipate being able to use +Google Analytics to properly measure traffic and engagement on G+ posts?  It's very nice to migrate comments to my Wordpress blog along with the post, but Google Analytics does not track or credit any of the views of the post on G+.  PR firms and brands use Google Analytics statistics to determine whether or not a blogger has influence, so the lack of statistics for either G+ or the samepost... more »
