Brunner Nathan1,086The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographerr that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles2012-12-24 08:19:0850022323CC G+

Gene Bowker39,058How to have a better stream - Part One #StreamCircle  Someone recently mentioned to me about how they couldn't seem to find good photography in their stream.Well.. here is my way to help that.These are active photographers who have a variety of styles and cover everything from point-and-shooters to some of the top pro's on G+.  I've been through each one's stream and they all can offer you something to make your stream better.

J Smilanic1,401100 Great photographers --- read, add circle and reshare*[Photography Circle]This is my main photography circle. A little over a week ago I added my 100th person to this circle and said I would share it. Since then I've added a couple more. I don't like a busy feed so I've been very selective about who I have added to all my circles. Everyone in this circle has some serious talent, and mostly just post their photography.Granted most of the people in this circle already have a good following but if you don't already follow these people you should. I'd like to point out a few of my favorites:+Ashley Dawn Crouse  - My favorite thing about Ashley is that she has style. I can be scrolling through my feed and come up on one of her photos and know exactly whose it is. Consistent quality work.+Takahiro Yamamoto  - One of the first photographers I started following on GPlus over a year ago. Takahiro can shoot it all but I especially love his nighttime and long exposure shots.+Rznag Rmrod  - Someone else who can do it all. From IR to landscapes to #urbex , he makes it work.But really, everyone in this circle is great. I hope no one feels left out. If you'd like me to share my other photography circles let me know.2012-07-30 23:09:55104705CC G+

Sumit Sen45,935Circle Share: Talented and Inspiring people Part - II will share a few curated circles of my circle friends over the next few weeks and will start with two circles containing members who deserve more attention and following. To the best of my knowledge all of them have less than 10,000 followers. Part - I has 50 members (for easy checking) and all are inspiring photographers and/or great communicators (a talent that is in short supply in G+ these days :) ). All of them are regular posters and have posted since 1st June at least.As always with any circle share do check individuals, if you can, before adding. But I think it is risk free to add the entire circle in this case. I do have strong bias for nature and wildlife photographers, and that might show here. Part - II next week.  #circleshare  2012-07-09 07:52:0350391367CC G+

Thomas Hawk2,461,0112,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev)This is the fourth time since joining G+ almost a year ago that I'm sharing my photographers circle.  I shared it with 500 photographers, 1,000 photographers, 1,500 photographers and now 2,000 photographers.  I have to break my circle up into four 500 photographer circles as that is the G+ limit.  Each day this week (Mon.- Thurs.) I'll share a different circle.  Today is the first circle and includes photographers with the last name's A-Ev (although +Marc Evans you are in tomorrow's circle).  A few notes about these circles.  I always get hated on when I share them by people.  Inevitably if I include 2,000 people, I will leave 50,000 people out.  This is not intentional or personal.  This circle is not "the best" photographers on G+ or in the world.  It doesn't mean if you are not in my circle that you are not a "quality" photographer.  This list is simply photographers that I've stumbled across for whatever reason over the past year and have chosen to follow their work.  In some cases I've gotten to know the photographers in this circle personally -- through photowalks and trips, hangouts, in real life, etc.  Many of these people are or have become my friends.  Most of the photographers in my circle though I don't even know.  They are just people whose work I admire and want to consume -- I hope many are future friends.  :)I use some objective criteria with this circle but I use a lot of subjective criteria too.  This is, afterall, my own personal circle that I look at and +1 from every single day.  My aesthetic taste and personal preferences may be very, very different than yours.  This is ok.  Art is subjective.  That said, here a breakdown of my own preferences and biases that influence who I add into my circle.1.  I like people who are active on G+.  If you haven't posted one of your photos in the last month you probably are not in this circle.  I use a script to uncircle inactive people regularly.2.  I like photographers who mostly post their own photographs.  I dislike clutter and "dumb stuff" in my photographers circle.  Excessive reshares, circle shares, memes, gifs, youtube videos, posts not about photography, web links, etc. make me uncircle or move people to a different circle.  I also like photographers who regulate how much of their photography they post to their stream.  I don't want to see 50 shots in a row of someone's vacation.  I think about 5 photos max a day feels about right to me.3.  *Controversial* I dislike signatures and watermarks.  You will find photographers in my circle that use them.  It's just a bias, not a hard and fast rule.  I mostly want this stream to be as watermark/signature free as possible.  I totally understand and respect your reasons and decision for using watermarks/signatures.  I hope you equally respect my decision to not want to consume photos mared up with them.  Please don't turn this into a discussion about watermarks/sigs, I've spent the last 10 years thinking heavily about this issue.  It's just a personal preference and bias.4.  I like people who are active, positive, helpful, enthusiastic G+ community members.  I dislike people who are rude, mean, complainers, trolls, harrasers, etc.  If you say mean things to people, about people, about their art or their work I don't want to follow you.  I'm fine with debate and disagreement.  It should just be done respectfully -- there's a huge difference between respectful disagreement and rude behavior.  Not only will you not be in this circle if you are rude, I'll probably 2012-06-04 16:53:26500235147424CC G+

#2012project52  , #gplusproject522012  , #project522012  's them this week was, "Summer/Winter"  It's summer on my half of the world, so I set up a sweet little scene with my daughter. Then I left the blankets and pillows out all night, and they got totally drenched in the biggest Thunderstorm I have ever witnessed in my entire life...:o) Who knew?

Had to look far and wide to come up with an image for this week's theme of #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012   of "Autumn/Spring" As mentioned earlier, the Pacific Northwest is enjoying a late "indian summer", with beautiful days and crisp evenings. Finally found this small evidence of fall at a local park...but the leaves were ugly, so I dressed it up with a bit of art.....:O)

.......ANNND this wraps up my #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012   for the year with the last two themes, "Mirrors" and "Christmas".

What a fun, challenging, and helpful project! Really helped me think outside the box, and kept me hopping each week to fit the week's theme into my schedule...'fraid I sorta fizzled out at the end, with Christmas festivities and preparations all competing for my time....but, nevertheless, I did finish before the end of the year...:o)

Thanks again to the great curators who faithfully watched over the project and offered their encouraging words throughout...

I won't be joining next year, as I think I want to slow down and do a portrait project on a little bigger scale once a month that will hopefully bring the reward of more business prospects...

"Winter"
We don't get many 'winter' days, in the sense of snowy landscapes, in the PNW, as our winters are just wet and grey, mostly...but I still look forward to the early evenings, sitting by the cozy fire with a warm cuppa tea, and a project of some sort to keep my hands busy while I ponder life....

So, winter gives me a warm fuzzy feeling, rather than a cold blue feeling...:O)

"Street Photography"
#2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  
So this is probably another cliche image, and I suppose there should be some peeps in it somewhere, but the show hadn't started yet...;o)

We are very fortunate to have a beautifully restored vintage theatre in our little town, and it is often filled to capacity for a variety of shows, productions and local events.

"Smiles"  
This week's #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  theme. I think this is the first week I have not taken a picture specifically for the theme, but since this images is only a couple of weeks old, I thought it would work. 

My favorite smiles are these kind; if you look real close, you will see that my handsome little nephew is smiling through his tears during a recent photo session...and yet he is still saying 'back off' with his little hand. What a trooper--so tolerant of his auntie and her camera! LOL!

I got "Mostly White" on my calendar, but it seems like many are posting "Flowers" for this week's #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012   theme.

So, I figured I would just kill two birds with one stone...lol

I must admit, my answer for next week's theme was a little bit cliche` again...but, oh well! :O)
I am kind of working ahead now, as the incredibly busy holiday season is creeping upon me, and I don't want to get stressed out about finishing my project...;o)

I couldn't decide.....:O)

This week's theme for #project522012   #gplusproject522012   #2012project52  is "Vanishing Point". I think the usual illustrations of this technique use buildings/architecture/streets, etc. so you can follow actual lines with your eyes into the image so show depth.  But, I liked what I found in nature...although I guess the vanishing 'points' of the trees was a bit of a stretch...;P

Sigh Okay, so I don't really 'do' Halloween, but since that was the theme for the next week's #2012project52  , #gplusproject522012  , #project522012 , I decided I may as well see just how 'ghoully' I could go...
a medical skull lying around the house certainly comes in handy in a situation like this.... 
I composited the skull image over a portrait of my boy and added/created the drama...:O) My favorite part was adjusting my signature...Mwahahaha!

Then I also noticed that there were other themes I could add this too, so I decided to post it early! :O)

So....for anyone who does event photography.
I am looking for a way to download images I take with my Olympus E3 to a Motorola Xoom on site for viewing. I usually show clients images on the back of the camera, but this event will be at an assisted living center, so they may not have a as good of eyesight....it would be great if they could hold the Xoom, and the images show up on the tablet for them to pick from immediately after they are shot. Wirelessly would be great, but a long cord would be acceptable as well. 
Any ideas out there in Google + land?

"Reflections"
Week 44 of #2012project52  , #gplusproject522012  , #project522012  ...
I was looking all over for reflections of things in water, silverware, mirrors, eyes....then I got distracted outside by all the pretty fall colors so I started shooting some foliage. After chimping this image in the viewfinder, realized that the thorn was 'reflecting' the light of the sky!! I liked it. :O)

Any G+ computer techies out there able to help me?
My computer has been acting strained lately, heating up, and I can hear USB ports kicking on and off. I ran a scan on it in safe mode and it was clean, so I went to "Devices and Drivers" and found "X's" on my computer and a printer. After troubleshooting, I get these messages;
1) "Consumer IR device has driver problems"
2) "UDS Master Bus of Kernal USB Software Bus by TCP doesn't have a driver"
3) "Hardware changes might not have been detected"
Of course, I tried to download the drivers from the troubleshooting screen, and it doesn't work. I also went to Windows update and made sure I was up to date, and after the restart, I get, "USB Control Center installation incomplete. Please reinstall" (This is for a one port wireless print server)

I think this is the first circle I have shared, but I have been on G+ for some time now, and can now recognize many of the names in here as those who post regularly, with quality images, and are responsive and interactive as well. It is a circle that will add some inspirational photography to your stream and maybe some encouragement...if that's one of the reasons you joined G+...:o)
And no, I'm not sharing it just because I happened to be in it...thank you, Charles! :O)

 Hidden Treasure: 264 talented photographers to discover

     a select group of photographers with
        5000 to 7500 followers 
▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄

264 photographers plus myself.
#CWL7500  

This circle is only people with 5000 to 7500 followers.  I made this choice because people like to see smaller circles.

No one has asked to be in this circle and no one has been required to share the circle.  The choices here are my own based on my own likes and dislikes.

The photographers that I have added to this circle are all photographers that I would like to have in my stream.  The styles vary but the quality is there.  The work varies from above average to outstanding.

No strings attached
• I ask, but do not require, that everyone in this circle plus the post, comment on the post, and most importantly, share the circle.  My experience tells me that circles that don't require sharing are generally of a higher quality since there is no obligation to include anyone.  Please share. 

Validation process
•  I have personally checked all of the profiles in the circle.  This is a circle of people whose work I like. No one has asked for inclusion and the choice of inclusion was solely my own decision. 
• Photographers that are inactive were not chosen
• Photographers with animated gifs were not chosen
• Only photographers sharing a nice selection of their own images were included
• Lots of external links = not included
• I had to like what I saw; my circle = my choice.
• I'm in the circle. My circle, I get to be in it.

For anyone sharing this circle, I recommend that you add a few fresh images to your stream to keep your content balanced.

After hearing an ominous THUD at my front window, I ran over to scan for the carcass of a "distracted-while-flying" bird. Didn't see anything on the ground but noticed this little guy sitting and quivering on the branch, so ran to get my camera. After taking one image, (the only one I got, so please ignore the blurry nostrils...;o) a larger bird flew past, which startled this guy into a flurry of activity, jumping around in the tree and chirping. Obviously, the injury has been like that for a while, for he was quite adept at hopping around on one leg!

After hearing an ominous THUD at my front window, I ran over to scan for the carcass of a "distracted-while-flying" bird. Didn't see anything on the ground but noticed this little guy sitting and quivering on the branch, so ran to get my camera.

Ha! Some people have way too much time on their hands.....Maybe I'll have to try this.... :o)  
"Sarah!!! Come out to the studio--I have something I want to try....."  *evil grin*

We love this collection of "water wigs". The photographer used a sound trigger to capture the balloons exploding over peoples heads!

I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!! Not even under the wire this week...O.o
After a mad dash out to the beach last night to catch a "Sunset" for this week's #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  theme, I confirmed to myself that I am 'not' a landscape photographer. O.o
Course, next week is "metal" so I am feeling rather ambivalent about my project...:o)

Okay, for those of you in my Techie circle, Windows is trying to update, but my computer is not allowing it. I keep getting the "Failure configuring Windows updates, reverting changes" notification. I have tried the Microsoft "Fixit" fella, and I tried to manually update through the system security route, with no luck. Any ideas? Please don't tell me my HD is going out, as I might faint...O.o
Thanks so much for any help!! :O)

Awww...one of my favorite themes....this weeks'  #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  was "Portrait". So, I took my favorite model out and we had a good time practicing for her upcoming senior portrait session..:O)
I like the back lighting, but not sure if it is a little too strong to use with just a reflector...wondering if I should have used OCF instead...?
What'cha think?

This texture, along with the fault lines, can save your life! Put on your thinking cap and tell us what it is!

Well now... #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  's theme this week was "Animals"! Hey! We can do that! :O)

This is my girl Sarah with; clockwise, starting under her left arm;
Bertha the Biddy,
Feline Flossy,
Canine Chewey,
Knightley the Betta, 
and a parakeet named Jitterbug--just a few of her critters...;o)

sigh One of those 'under the wire' weeks for #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  ...literally wandering around the yard in the last minute desperately trying to find a "silhouette". Feeling very uninspired, but I finally found one....O.o

I think I am a little too literal for some of these themes...I'm really supposed to be thinking 'outside' the box--stretch :O)
#2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  this week was...wait for it..."The "S" Curve....O.o

Do ya figure I got it? LOL!

#2012project52  , #gplusproject522012  , #project522012  's them this week was, "Summer/Winter"  It's summer on my half of the world, so I set up a sweet little scene with my daughter. Then I left the blankets and pillows out all night, and they got totally drenched in the biggest Thunderstorm I have ever witnessed in my entire life...:o) Who knew?

Week 28 for #project522012   #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   was "My Hometown".
This is Aberdeen, Washington, fondly known by some locals as the "Gateway to the Olympic Peninsula". A cozy little town snuggled along the bank of the Chehalis River, it was founded in 1884 by Samuel Benn. Aberdeen's economic survival has been mostly dependent upon the timber and fishing industries, and as such has been hard hit by regulations and restrictions concerning harvesting natural resources. We are the home port for the Lady Washington, which portrayed the HMS Interceptor in the Pirates of the Caribbean...
Unfortunately, as a 7 image, stitched panorama made small enough to be seen on most monitors, much detail has been lost, but hopefully you can make out a little town here....:O)

My plans B,C, and D for Project 52....I was leaning towards the smoke one the most, but I noticed that several of my recent posts were all black BGs, and I don't want all my images to look the same...I'm doing this project to stretch my creativity....hoping it's working..:O)

Well this is the first week of #2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  that I actually have four images that I like about equally, so it was a hard choice for me to decide which one to post for my official entry in this week's theme, "Red, White and Blue". 

In the end, I decided on a patriotic image, because, well, I am not ashamed of my country, and the Fourth of July is just around the corner...:O)

I will probably put the others in my "extras" album-just for grins...:O)

I was inspired to attempt shooting smoke as an idea for one of my themes. Wow....smoke is an abstract lovers dream medium....not even sure I could pick only the ones I need for the project, but I liked these ones...;o)

#2012project52   #gplusproject522012   #project522012  's theme this week was "Water". I had this shot in the back of my mind for a while, but it was a lot harder than I anticipated...shooting glass without a ton of reflections involves making sure the strobes are brighter than the surroundings, and also that they are coming from behind the glass, or they will leave their own mark. Plus, I would have increased the viscosity of the water if I knew how, as it is very splattery and messy, so Photoshop was my friendly tidy-up-er...
But, over all, I am satisfied with the learning experience...;o)
