Ralf Skirr14,917The How To Get Started With Shared Circles V2 Circle! Lots of people re-share other people’s shared circle by simply clicking the share button on the circle post. THIS circle is a starting point and a short introduction into creating your OWN shared circles.Just Published - My EPIC Circles Tutorial.5,000 Words. 29,000 Pixels long. Check it out:http://ralfskirr.com/google-plus-circles-tutorial-for-businessFor The Critics: Did you bother to take a look? This is an excellent circle that I've put together over 6 weeks. When you add these people to your circles you'll get an amazing variety of interesting, entertaining, and educational content. From G+ gurus as well as from people with only a few dozen followers but amazing profiles.Back to How-to-get-started...Of course, if you don't feel like creating your own circle, you can simply share the traditional way: 1. Click the share button below and share. 2. Plus one this post. 3. Comment on this post. [Will add you to my upcoming engagers circle.]Quick start steps for creating your own shared circle:Create the new circle1. In the circle below click ‘Add people.’ A popup will open where you can create a new circle.2. Type a new name for your new circle, and click the button ‘Create [name of your circle] circle.’ You will now have a new circle with the 450 people from the circle I created. Google sends you to the circle page in your browser. From there you can share right away:How to share your new circleIf you want to share the 450 people circle without adding more people:1. From the circle page, click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.2. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’3. Add a comment.4. Click ‘Share.’If you want to add people to the circle before sharing:Simply visit your circles or your stream and hover over the names from people you like to add and add them to your new circle like you always add people to circles: by checking the box with the circle name.To share the circle after you've added your own people:1. Place your cursor in the top left corner for the Google+ main menu. Click ‘People. ‘2. Click ‘Your circles.  ‘3. Select the circle that you’d like to share. 4. Click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.5. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’6. Add a comment.’7. Click ‘Share.’Before you share a circle, you might want to get an idea who is actually in this circle!What's NOT in this circle:No spammers. No offensive content. No inactive people.Who I've added:- I've put a lot of time into finding interesting people. Not all 450, but lots of people who are active posters, posting a variety of topics on g+. - An even smaller [than last time] pinch of 'the usual suspects,' i.e. people active in circle sharing.- A few people who have helped me to grow my following, i.e. who have RECENTLY included me in their shared circles. Including them here is a THANK YOU for their support!AND A SPECIAL SHOUTOUT for the amazing admins of our community BLOGGERS OF GOOGLE PLUS+Julie DeNeen +elizabeth obih-frank 2014-03-04 16:51:4545012988134CC G+

Maddie Jane1,907The part of the show where Maddie admits to one of her many 'screw-ups'. :)I frequently have tech issues when it comes to adding people from circles. On at least 2 occasions (I'm sure there are a few more out there somewhere) I have accidently added the entire circle rather than the 5 or so that I really wanted. Due to the high volume adding and lack of time to cull through these, I created a new circle and moved on. When I have free time (don't laugh!) I try to make my way through them and add each to their respective circle.It has taken me a long time to finally get my Photography circle back to 'normal', even though I know I'm still missing some of you. I wanted to share my favorites and couldn't wait another minute! These photographers or photography sharers are a huge inspiration to not only my own attempts at the art, but my writing too. Enjoy!

Sakura Explosion, Tokyo Japan
This one is definitely worth zooming in 100% to see what kind of detail you can really get out of that Sony A7r with the Zeiss 35mm lens. 

It continues to blow my mind. 

Now that I've had this camera and lens about 6 months I'll be updating my review very soon. See what I got so far. http://goo.gl/kq2ubD

Workflow and software used:
Lightroom - Lens profile correction + a little contrast.
Define2 - Noise Reduction
Viveza 2 - Contrast, Saturation, Color adjustments
Color Efex Pro - Sky Light with a control point top right, Pro Contrast & Detail Extractor
Photoshop - Luminosity masks for final exposure and detail tweaks + Highpass Filter .5% with Linear Light blending mode for sharpness.

Scripps Pier - La Jolla California
This is one of those spots, if you go there in the weekend, you'll have to wait in line to get your shot.
But it is worth it. It's one of the cooler piers in Southern California.

This is a hand blended image. Two exposures.

Orchid Macro
Taken with the Sony A7r, and the Canon 100mm macro lens.

I'm back!
I've been super busy this last month helping my wife and her friend set up their Organic Skincare Spa in Beverly Hills. You can see the website at http://sakurabeauty.net which I'm still working on. 

I've been taking lots of macro photos of flowers to help with advertising and content. It should be fun. Expect my posts to get pretty girly for the next few weeks as I work on that. :)

Then it's back to landscapes. Weather's been clear so shooting around L.A. has been boring.

Malibu Gold
From last week in Malibu California during a rare extreme high tide. Needless to say, I got a little soaked. 

Also, if you saw my article from yesterday. I shot this at f13. Usually I like to shoot f16, but I found diffraction to be a problem on these new cameras with high pixel density. Like my Sony A7r.

I was worried about the lower DOF at a lower aperture, but in the final, it's unnoticeable.

Why You Should Avoid Shooting With Small Apertures

Typically as photographers we are taught, the smaller the aperture the sharper and more crisp your image is going to be.

If you're always shooting high apertures for your landscape photos, you should really consider dialing back and learning your lenses. Especially if you're shooting on a camera with a high pixel density sensor like the Sony A7r, or many of the new APS-C systems.
Check out these tests! Then Share. :)

That Japan Sun
On second to last day in Japan the sun decided to finally be my best friend and give me this awesome sunset. 

It was one of the best sunsets I've ever photographed. It was very bright orange. This actually isn't too far off from my original raw.

I also redesigned my website this week. Check it out: http://goo.gl/8ifo7H

The Fuji Tunnel
I finally got a chance to see the Fuji Tunnel in the Kawachi Fuji Garden. It's very very cool. I was about a week early from seeing the full massive fuji flower explosion but it was still a very vibrant spot. 

By the time I shot this photo there were too many people for me to get it in a single shot. I had to use 4 different photos and blend them together.

You can see a little more how I did it here: http://bit.ly/1g4OZsv

Have a great day!

For my first day back to LA from my 5 weeks in Japan I decided to keep the momentum going and start shooting immediately. Also helps keeps me from realizing how tired I am from jet lag.

Imazu Bay Fukuoka Japan
Finally got a sunset last night. It's been raining on and off for the last two weeks. Last night it cleared up a bit so my wife and I road bikes down to the beach just in time to catch the sunset.  Never realized Fukuoka was so beautiful.

This shot is two exposures, one for the sky one for the foreground. Masked together in Photoshop.

Tokyo Street Photography
While in Tokyo for a day and a half I shot a little street photography.

I don't usually shoot a lot of street but with the Sony A7r it's just too easy. It really helps having that flip out screen when you're 6'3". Before I would always have to bend down and look through the evf on my 5dmkii.

Tenryuji Bamboo Forest
Another shot of a Bamboo forest in Kyoto Japan. I didn't have time to walk through this one but from where I was it looked pretty dense.
Did you know bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth?

The Resting Rickshaw
Around Kyoto people pull these things around like they would back in the day. I saw this one resting by itself in perfect light. It pretty much sums up my experience in Kyoto perfectly. IMy quintessence. :)

Ju-San Mairi Girl
When girls, and boys turn 13 in Japan they dress up in traditional clothing, girls wear the kimono in with the adult cut. 
They visit temples for "worship of knowledge" and "receive knowledge."

This kind young girl let me take her photo. :)

Tokyo Day 1 - 37 Days In Japan
First day in arriving in another country is always the toughest. Had to just pack, leave LAX, ride a plane forever, then customs in tokyo for an hour, and the how do I get to my hotel via subway game. Some cool photos. I got a ton more today. Will be continuing to post as I go.

31 Days In Japan
I just a few days I leave for Japan for 37 days. I'll be doing something on my blog and on Google+ that I've never done before.

I'll document each day with photography.

I go to Japan every year or so, and often people have this idea of Japan based on all the craziness of Tokyo. I want to show a little bit of that, but also I really want to show more every day life in the smaller towns of Japan. It's really cool outside of Tokyo as well.

So be sure to check in regularly to G+ and I'll give you links to each day on my blog. I'm super excited!

You Know The Problem WIth Google+
The problem with google+ is, I follow so many amazing photographers, and there are always so many amazing photos coming through my stream that it's raised the bar on my own photography, making it harder for me to feel like I have a photo worth sharing. :) But I do love G+ It's really made me a better photographer for that reason. 

Solvang
This is another shot from Solvang! Flowers are in bloom this time of year in Cali.

New Samyang Lenses!
Two new ones caught my eye that will be full frame and will come in E mounts. I'm interesting in that 24mm. Looks like a significant upgrade to their older model.

Beneath The Windmill - Solvang California
Photo of my wife in front of a windmill in Solvang. The little Danish town near Santa Barbara California. 

Shot with the Sony A7r, processed with Lightroom and Photoshop.

I also changed the look of my blog (see the link below.) I'm about to start blogging more seriously since I'm leaving my full time job next week. Should be fun!

If there is anything anyone wants to know about how I process or shoot leave a question in the comment and I'll start posting tippers to answer those questions.

Thanks all for the Bday Wishes!
Here's a photo from Las Vegas. FYI, this is what ISO 5000 looks like on the Sony A7r. :) Didn't have my tripod with me that day. 

I updated my blog with some of my experiences shooting Landscape Photography with the Sony A7r. Hope it makes sense I've had a migraine for two days now. Yeah!
