Peter From69,694In The Spotlight | The Amateur Photographer's Circle – February 2014OK folks... Time to share the APC, February Edition now. It was amazing to see how much great talent there is out there. I am sorry that it took a few days longer than planned for me to get my act together and share this circle but I have had a major project in the works and compiling a circle such as the APC is not done in a heartbeat... :)So, make sure that you Plus this post, Reshare the circle, and tell me a few nice things in the comments before you add it to your own circles.A few remarks...If I did not add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share images in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen.Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the APC.I try to make my shared circles interesting and the main focus is as always; PHOTOGRAPHY.The Next CircleI will throw out the next announcement post in a couple of weeks time so make sure you visit my feed.Cheers my friends! Now add the circle!2014-02-12 15:01:41346149140171CC G+

Peter From66,753The AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER'S CIRCLE  –– Circle Post –– Part ONEFinally the time has come to share the first part of the APC. "The first part..?", you might ask. Yes, Part ONE since the announcement posts received some 800 comments and I manually check every person before I add him/her to the circle.Part TWO (the next 250 amateurs) will be shared in a couple of days. bare with me, it's quite time consuming to put these circles together. :)So here are the first 250 amateur photographers. You will find some very interesting feeds and some top notch photography in this circle, I guarantee you that. Add the circle and enjoy!WANT TO JOIN THE APC?For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago (this time, for example, the two announcement posts were shared over 1000 times!). Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle.Now it's your turn to join the action. But only if you are an amateur photographer. This circle is NOT for bloggers, marketeers, SEO-ppl and their likes. If you do qualify, then read the guidelines on how to be a part of the APC.The GUIDELINES (yeah, you remember, huh?):1) Plus and comment this circle post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on this original circle post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet my requirements.2) Reshare this circle post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released (even if you are NOT in this first part of the circle). If you do not reshare, I won't add you to the next APC since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow photographers.3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is not the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Such comments will be deleted and/or reported. Thanks.Let's show some Google+ love and spread the word! :)Have fun!Release DateThis circle was released on Tuesday, November 26.Have a great week everybody and enjoy all the great photography here on Google+!2013-11-26 18:38:52250139133167CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-04 15:53:284915965104CC G+

Gailen Mapes12,604Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera R-S - 5 of 14 (reshare - hopefully correcting issues found by +Charles Lupica .)Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published July 1.)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/about2012-07-19 14:26:393161428CC G+

Elizabeth Hahn19,891With the anniversary of G+ just a couple weeks away, I went through all the people in my circles, and made one just for people I've HIRL'd with.  This is a circle of 200 that with the exception of one person, I didn't even knew existed a year ago.  (the one person was one of the most recent I have met, too).  If I've forgotten you, please send me a message!!!!!  I've gone through my circles a few times trying to catch everyone.. but I still probably missed someone.I didn't follow any blogs, I didn't follow photographers on that other social network, I pretty much shot on my own.  In the last year I've been on more photowalks than I can count.  (I would guess over 40, but I haven't sat down and really counted).  Some of the folks I've just shook their hand and said hello, other's I've spent days in the desert, mountains and beaches of California with.  There are people from at least 4 different countries, pro photographers, casual hobby photographers, but they all have enough passion for it to get out and share their love of it with others.  While much photography, especially landscape photography is done alone, it also can be a really fun group sport.Add the circle if you wish, pass if you don't.  I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for changing my view of photography, and help me learn so much in the last year.  You all rock!!!!!2012-06-12 22:22:15200102119CC G+
Thomas Hawk2,480,3142,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 3 of 4 (La-Ro)Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333gPart 2 of 4 (Ev-La) here:  http://goo.gl/dX7lRThis 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 third circle and includes photographers with the last name's La-Ro. 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 block you too.  I want to surround myself with positive 2012-06-06 16:11:54497156130318CC G+

Trever McGhee6,436You just never know who you'll discover until you circle them.There's someone for everyone to follow in this incredible circle of people & pages. Especially +Candace Regan whose my better half who makes me look good :-) She wasn't feeling well yesterday, she's been putting in 20 hr days lately working on our projects to help others for free, so I thought I'd surprise her today with a few new followers, she loves to engage with people. Just like others in this group of people who are waiting to follow you, they love to engage with people, while others are hoping for the opportunity to inspire you with their posts.For me, that's what it's all about, helping one another find the right people to connect to.The greatest thing about Google is you can add and delete as many circles as you want. So put this circle to the test, check out the Stream for a week, keep those who you like and return the rest to the grid. You can always add them again later on when the time is right for you. I guarantee you, you'll find more than one :-)That's why I included +J.J. Bentley circle of 190 "Rising G+ Superstars" Their amazing photographers with less than 10,000 followers, that are rising to the top because of the extraordinary work they do :-) Please add & share this circle ~ to share these extraordinary people,If you would like to be added, please leave a comment. #BeHappy #Friends #Share #circleshare #circlecount #publiccircle #sharedcircle If you have a favorite photo/artwork/story that we should consider for our book & show that were producing this fall, so that we can continue to help people for free, then post it on the public stream and include the #hashtag #Take2seconds and mention my name +Trever McGhee or +Candace Regan so that we can comment on it. If the photo/artwork/story follows the Google guidelines, it is family friendly and we have the artist's permission, we'll include it in the DVD portion that goes with the book. Everyone can take part in it, all you need is one plus which can be your own :-). As to whether or not your photo/artwork/story makes it into the book and/or the reality show will be determined by the largest number of pluses/shares.More details on the projects and how we'll raise 97 million will be released on Apr 22 :-)2012-04-12 15:11:29471851635CC G+

J.J. Bentley7,875Rising G+ Superstars: Updated for April 2012I've updated the criteria to focus more on the emerging photographers. This circle is limited to those with less than 10k followers.I've spent hours going through the comments left on the last posting. I've included those photographers who a) have a completed profile page with good scrapbook photos, etc, b) who post their original photos frequently and have little reshares and non photography related posts, and c) who interact, giving +1s, comments, etc and d) have less than 10,000 followers.If you add these photographers to your circles, you are guaranteed to increase the amount of amazing quality photographs that float down your stream.And if you do add this circle, please share it as well. Help spread the word.Finally, if you would like to be considered for inclusion in this circle, please do two things. Leave a comment. I will check out your profile and add you to the next sharing of the cirlcle (in May 2012) if it's appropriate.2012-04-10 19:17:35190385214CC G+
Chrysta Rae27,755OKAY THIS IS IT!! THIS IS THE ACTUAL March Scavengers Circle(Delete the other circle completely)THESE are your peers. Your comrades. Your fellow foot soldiers AND your worst enemies!!Every single person in this circle is competing with you.260 OF YOU!!!That is 52%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am OFF THE CHARTS happy about that number!!!(35% the first hunt, 29% the second hunt)Now, I'm sure you've all been wondering what I've been doing all morning. This last bit I needed to do was my double check round. And thank freaking goodness I did because I missed an entire person. Like totally missed her. Didn't even have her circled and she had an incredible album out there. I almost bit off my own tongue. BUT now I have all the loose ends tied, I am confident I got all the pictures and we're all good to go to the next phase!!!rubs hands togetherSo, over the next buncha hours I will be uploading albums and sending them to the judges. Let's remember that our judges all HAVE LIVES and it IS Easter weekend, so all we can do is be patient and have faith that they will make their choices and things will get rolling as soon as they can. Creating the albums takes a whole buncha time too. So be patient!!2012-04-07 18:26:07265109862CC G+

The only rule is that you cannot recommend yourself. Thanks to some amazing people in my circles such as +Ada M, +Alicia Reyes to name a few, I was recommended for this first one.

J.J. Bentley7,218Rising G+ Superstars: Updated for March 2012I've spent hours going through the comments left on the first posting. I've included those photographers who a) have a completed profile page with good scrapbook photos, etc, b) who post their original photos frequently and have little reshares and non photography related posts, and c) who interact, giving +1s, comments, etc and d) have less than 15,000 followers.If you add these photographers to your circles, you are guaranteed to increase the amount of amazing quality photographs that float down your stream.And if you do add this circle, please share it as well. Help spread the word.Finally, if you would like to be considered for inclusion in this circle, please do two things. 1) share the circle and 2) leave a comment. I will check out your profile and add you to the next sharing of the cirlcle (in April 2012) if it's appropriate.2012-03-19 16:45:032151006945CC G+
J.J. Bentley6,963Rising G+ SuperstarsI've spent quite a bit of time hand curating this list of G+ photographers.

Well this time, how about we go for fewer than 15'000? The last time we did this, it was a lot of fun and a lot of people wanted to do it again.Here's a circle of photographers with less than 15'000 followers. All have some great images to share. Some are fantastic, some awesome. Add this circle, find the ones you enjoy, remove the ones that just aren't to your taste. I think there's a nice cross-section of photographers doing portrait, landscape, street, and B&W • Only you can decide which are really awesome, enjoy and share.• What's that you say ? There's only 155 !!! That's where you come in.• I want to build this circle up 250 (or more) people and then share it.• I need you to tell me who needs to be in it.Who is your favorite photographer with less than 15'000 followers that you think needs more recognition?Rules:• People whose whole stream is project 52 / project 365 photos are unlikely to be chosen• If you don't understand white balance - I can hardly include you• If you don't correct tilting horizons, I won't add you. • If there aren't any banner images, I pretty sure I'll skip on by.• I will be in the circle and I have 30'250 followers• Please suggest who should be in this circle, more people recommending a single person is good. • I will verify every profile and I will select which ones get added• If the profile has no avatar - out• If there are animated gifs in the stream - no• if there is little or not photographs in the stream - no• (Tricky here) If I don't like what I see - no• If I see anything rude or unfriendly - no• No one with more than 15'000 followers will be added unless they here before reaching that number► Every profile was verified. If I saw animated gifs, a slew of shares or too little photography, the profile wasn't added. Unfortunately, when you do a circle like this, some people will be unhappy • If you're a landscape photographer and you don't know +Johan Peijnenburg be sure to make his acquaintance. He is a very talented landscape photographer and keeps one of the best photography circles on G+ • Architecture and B&W photographers should become acquainted with +David Bowden and +Joel Tjintjelaar (B&W + Long Exposure) • Check out +Daily Photography Themes ►►►► Remember, the more you share the circle the farther the circle goes. The farther it goes, the more people will see it. The point of a circle is to gain visibility. If you'2012-03-15 23:10:061553294373CC G+

Billy Wilson30,060Interactive People on G+: Part OneYesterday I asked people who they thought was the most interactive person they have found on G+ and I got a lot of responses. Since people from many different communities responded I ended up with a sampling of people from across a lot of the G+ world. Since there was interest in having a circle created of the people nominated in my threads I made this circle. I'm still working through all of the nominations and will have another circle ready once I'm done working through my threads. You can still nominate people on this post: https://plus.google.com/105706178492556563330/posts/bTjXGJcRNcK The original post hit the 500 comment maximum.

Jeff Sullivan41,837The Net Effect of Circle SharingAny time you have the release of such large circles totaling 1500 community members from one with over 880,000 contacts, there will probably be discussions on the pros and cons of circle sharing. At a high level, he added 22,000 contacts yesterday, but if even 500 of his contacts added the circles, 750,000 new connections were made in the community, more than he'll add in a month. I added 500 yesterday, and the 500 people not in his circle shares before probably added much more (so that's a highly conservative estimate). We could second-guess the process, but overall, the community is the beneficiary. Now clearly there are more people which should be recognized and included in circle shares, and many more topics than photography as well, so what I'd like to suggest is that others follow this example and similarly "pay it forward" to the community. Share your own circles, to continue and broaden the interconnection process within the community.

Once when it got to 500 and then again when it got to 1,000. Today my circle hit 1,500 so I'm sharing them again.I have to break them up into 500 person circles because this is the limit on Google+. Also Google limits the number of people you can add to circles per day so I'm going to publish my kick ass photographers circle over 3 days. Today I'm publishing A-G. Tomorrow I'll publish G-O. Friday I'll publish P-Z. By last name.In addition to the kick ass photographers in these circles I've also added three other accounts. Our new photography hangout show which will be on live tonight at 8PM PST +Photo Talk Plus as well as our show's sponsors +Drobo and +SmugMug as a way of saying thanks to them.A few notes about these circles. not to be long-winded, but…Every time I've shared my circles I've gotten haters from it. People who are upset that they are not in them. I absolutely detest that. It makes me not even want to share them because of that. These circles are not meant to be the definitive list of what photographers you should be following on Google+. These circles are simply who I have chosen to follow for photography on Google+ for my own personal consumption. I want to share them because I think YOU may also benefit from having these rich, talented, kick ass photographers in your streams.This is the circle that I browse every single day looking for great stuff to +1 and comment on Google+ and as such it reflects my own personal biases. For example. I hate looking at watermarks. This is a personal preference thing. If you use them, more power to you. It's absolutely your right. But as a consumer of photography I find them ugly and distracting and so I tend not to follow people who use them. This is not a big deal. This is not a personal attack against you if you watermark.

Are you familiar with Google Helpouts?

One of the foundational principles of my life is to be a life-long learner. This definitely applies to my passion for photography.  I've been a subscriber to Kelby Training for several years, have taken seminars and webinars by some of the leading photographers of our day and can say without exaggeration that there is no better teacher/mentor out there than +Alan Shapiro.   His knowledge of photography and post-processing is immense, yet he meets you where you are and gently leads you to places you never thought you would get in terms of skill and ability.

With Christmas upon us, this is a gift that you will want and that you will want to give to the photographers in your life!

Love in any language

The more I travel around the world, the more I realize how alike we all are at our most foundational levels.  We all want to be loved, to mean something to someone.  The baby below was born in an isolated region of China where neither Mandarin nor Cantonese is spoken, and yet words were not needed in making a connection with him or his grandmother.  Just a smile and taking the time to notice them was all it took.

If you're a praying person... Updated 6 Dec

This is an image I shot a couple of years ago of a friend of mine. He is currently in surgery having accidentally shot himself this evening. Prayers, good thoughts, whatever you can muster are much needed at the moment. 


See comments for lastest update

McCall just got out of surgery again, and we just got the report from the doctor. No organs were significantly damaged. Nothing wrong with his intestines. They closed him up and will keep him sedated for atleast another 24 hours. All is good, he just needs some time now. The family would like to thank all of you around the world who prayed and sent your good thoughts on behalf of McCall.

It's incredible to be part of the caring G+ family.

Last week I promoted new talent in my Upcoming Stars Circle and now it's time to promote good amateur photographers no matter how many (or few) followers they have. So if you consider yourself an amateur photographer, then this circle is for you (and your friends here on Google+).

For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle.

Now it's your turn to join the action. But only if you are an amateurphotogr... more »

Karina of Kuşadası

If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.  ~ G.K. Chesterton

I shot this image at ISO 100 (way too low!) at f/5.0 and 1/250 sec.  Because it was underexposed, I used Nik Collection's Viveza to bring it to a proper exposure and Color Efex Pro to fine tune. #nikcoverphoto   #thirstythursdaypics  by +Giuseppe Basile +Mark Esguerra

Civic Duty

Outside of Photoshop Worlds, Expos and the like, I detest conventions.  I'll make the usual round of glad handing, networking, etc., but when the fun starts inside, I disappear outside or around the corner to see what adventures are awaiting me.

Still Watching

Yesterday I posted about someone I met who is riding coast to coast to raise awareness and funds for cancer.  Thank you so much to everyone who shared that message from my post.

Today, I've been thinking about a friend who is, quite literally, fighting for her life from the same awful disease, cancer.  I use the word friend somewhat loosely, as I've done as terrible a job of keeping in touch with her as I have with you all over the last year and a half.

Nonetheless, my thoughts are always with her and I wanted to encourage her with this image.  +Lee Daniels, I'm still watching.

Take that Melanoma

Explore, enlighten, and inspire for the Cause ...Brian

This is Brian and he has undertaken the giant task of riding from coast to coast to raise money and awareness for Melanoma. Brian's brother was diagnosed with Melanoma but has now been declared cancer free.

My wife, Beverly, and I just celebrated her fifth anniversary of being cancer free so I was immediately drawn to Brian's story as we met and talked at the Cadillac Ranch outside of Amarillo. Beverly had been diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma to which the American Cancer Society gives a 15%-20% survival rate. She's one of the lucky ones.

It's people like Brian who make the world a better place, and I'd love it if you'd help support his cause.

Do me a favor:

A new way of seeing

I uploaded an image last week that my friend, Alan Shapiro, was kind enough to admire.  He finished by challenging me to look at it as a monochrome.  Then he did one better, he spent the time to show me ways of converting to monochrome that I'd never seen/tried before.  This is the result.  Thanks +Alan Shapiro for letting me trample through your Monochrome Garden and teaching me a new way of seeing.

Okay, so a meerkat isn't really a cat, but hey, it's the thought that counts!

Great Personality
