Gailen Mapes68,069Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera M-O - 19 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-09-19 10:51:490013

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223

All of them are posting a high amount (over 50 %) of urban & street shots in their profiles.

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721024720

What we came up in my last post about this is that while it would be great to have a theme, we should make it as broad as possible, thus appealing to as many photographers and buyers as possible. 

So how about this idea? 

The main theme is “Our World in 2013.” The book will then split intothree main sectio... more »

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Volume-III

Reminder: 12 days left to fund Plus One Collection III

We've got 12 days left but right now we're only 39% funded for publication of the #PlusOneCollectionIII  

What does that mean? This means we still have a lot of work to do to spread the word and recruit our friends and family before the book can go to press. 

Here's the link to our campaign - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

If you have ideas of what more we can do, please leave them in the comments! 

Here's another photograph from the book, by +QT Luong, who's been the supporter of the project from the Day 1, and is one of the most dedicated photographers I know.

Announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in Plus One Collection print book

And now what many of you have been waiting for - announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in the print book #PlusOneCollectionIII  

Link -> http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Plus-One-Collection-III-List-o (Tip: use CTRL+F to see if your name is there to save time)

It's always a hard task to pick the photos because there are so many amazing ones that we just can't include because we have limited space in the book. Any judge can testify to you of that. We had seven capable judges this time around who went through every submission and we picked the best 285 or so for the book based on the final rankings.

But what we decided to do to compensate for this is to release a poster that will have everyone's submission posted. You can order that poster on Indiegogo page as well - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

As with the book, all net proceeds from the sale of the poster will go to Saving Eliza fund. 

What's next? Keep spreading the word about the fundraising campaign! We still need to raise $25,000 before the book can go to press. And if you can contribute, please do. ___

Plus One Collection - Campaign Update + Poster?

Thanks to you all for contributing to a great start to our campaign. After a few days we're already 15% there. I just posted an update and answered a few frequently asked questions. Take a look here - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311#activity

Please continue to spread the word and contribute, if you can!

Also, if we were to create a poster that includes Everyone's photo submitted, would you be interested in buying it? What do you think an appropriate price would be? I don't yet know what it would cost to print, but maybe we can charge $25 or $50? What do you think?

Announcing Plus One Collection Volume III Fundraising Campaign

It's been a long journey, but we are fully focused on this now, and want to get the latest version of the #PlusOneCollectionIII book into your hands before Christmas. To help us get there, we created an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign that will provide us with the funds needed to publish the book. 

All the details are here - http://igg.me/at/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

We also created a video explaining our project. You can find it here - Plus One Collection, Volume III 

We hope you can help up in two ways - first, contribute the funds for the book by picking one of the perks offered there. Second, please help us spread the word! Share the news here, share the news to your friends and family on other social networks and email. Share, share, share!

We set a goal to raise $30,000 in the next 30 days. We know it's a lofty one, but it will allow us to do two things - publish and ship the book to all campaign sponsors, and raise $5,000-10,000 for our charitable cause, Eliza O'Neill. 

The campaign is a fixed goal campaign, meaning, we do need to meet the goal of $30,000 before we receive any funds and can print the book. 

I know many of you who contributed photographs to the book want to know if your photo made it. We're still working on the selection, and will announce the list of contributing artists next week. Stay tuned! 

But in the meantime, we're happy to announce that the book publication process is back on track and with your help, let's make it happen and help Eliza!___

Update on the status of the Plus One Collection book

It's been a while that I mentioned anything about +Plus One Collection Volume III which we started to plan publishing earlier in the year. I now get daily inquiries about the status of the project, and I know I need to address this quickly. 

The short answer is that we're still working on it and hope to publish it soon! 

Now the longer answer.. The bulk of the work is done by +Andy Lee and myself and we both got extremely busy this year with various personal things. That put the book project on the back burner. We've always done it for fun, and as volunteers with no compensation. A lot goes into the publishing of the book. Putting images together, selecting the right ones to publish, then publishing it, shipping. There's also accounting, legal, and other issues that happen behind the scenes.Som... more »

Putting images together, selecting the right ones to publish, then publishing it, shipping. There's also accounting, legal, and other issues that happen behind the scenes. Sometimes life gets too busy to work on the volunteer projects, and that's exactly what happened here. 

With that said, we recently resumed working on the book, and here's an updated timeline - 

- Kickstarter / Indiegogo camapaign to fund the book printing will launch right after the upcoming July 4 holidays in US
- official selection of the images will be announced shortly after
- book design and printing will be done by the end of the summer as well
- if all goes well, the book will ship in early fall 

So stay tuned and we really appreciate your patience!___

Is Google+ for photographers dead?

Pardon my long rant here, but I read on and chime in as well.

There's been a lot of talk lately about the state of things at Google+, with the departure of Vic Gundotra and Google emphasizing Google+ just in general. I never paid too much attention on how Google+ was doing overall because I enjoyed it as a social for photographers more than anything, an area where I know Google+ was a success. I was using Facebook for everything else. We went on G+ photowalks together, I made a lot of new photographer friends (some local like +Michael Bonocore, +Chris Chabot, +Karen Hutton and +Nathan Wirth and others are as far away as +Dave Powell in Japan and +Gordon Laing and +Andy Lee in England).

We published two volumes of charity photobook +Plus One Collection (with the third one still on the work, albeit more slow than last two times), which was a lot of fun and something I'm very proud of.

And the biggest one yet - +Markham Bennett found me on Google+ back in its early days, brought me over to +SmugMug where I met folks like +Chris MacAskill, +Don MacAskill, +Katherine Cheng, +Denise Gamboa, and I ended up getting a job there as a result of that - a move that changed my life, in a very positive way. 

But at the same time, I'm not using Google+ as much as I used to. Part of it is me because my life has been insanely busy in the last 6 months with the new baby in our family, work, and other big offline events in my life. Part of it though is that I don't see as much engagement on Google+ as I used to. Our posts generate less interest. There's very fewer, if any, offline community activities going on. Google isn't updating Google+ as quickly as it did back in the day. And overall, it seems like the network lost it's momentum a bit.

Sadly, I don't see another network taking the spot as "place where photographers hang out." It used to be Flickr. I was hoping it'll come back alive, but it seems to be as quiet now as it was three years ago, right before G+ came into the scene.

It seems like things aren't what they used to be on G+.

That's my view, but I'd love to hear yours. How has your experience been as a photographer? Are you logging in less or more? How's the engagement? What is the G+ future?___

Question about #PlusOneCollectionIII cause...

You might have heard by now what Ben Von Wong is doing with his #savingeliza  project - check out the video below and also the website - http://savingeliza.smugmug.com/The-Journey

What if we actually donated part (or all?) of the proceeds of the upcoming #PlusOneCollectionIII  to that cause? I know it's not much compared to what Eliza needs, but it is something and it may change her life forever. I did announced we teamed up with another cause earlier, but perhaps we can do that cause for another project in the future. 

What are your thoughts before we make any decisions?

Sorry I've been so quiet in the past few weeks. I still have photos to share from my January trip to London, Edinburgh and Barcelona, although I narrowed them down to my favorite 10 through a painful process of editing (or what my street photography friend +Eric Kim calls "killing your babies"). I'll share them in the next few days. 

If you're wondering where we are with the #PlusOneCollectionIII  process - we're finalizing the selection of photos for the book right now and about to begin the actual design. I'll have an update on this in the next week or so.

"Looking into Yosemite" for #PlusOneCollectionIII

 I came to the location for a landscape shot, but since it was so hazy, I asked my friend Tom to move over to the brink to make this image instead. The silhouette may be small, but it makes the picture.

At this time, I mostly photographed landscapes, but since then I've become interested in how we are part of our world. I started more conceptual series about the National Park, of which this image was a precursor.

Wow!! One of my very favorites so far. Much thanks to +Steve-Maxx landeros for submitting this one to #PlusOneCollectionIII  

So I lagged, and +Ivan Makarov  had to strong arm me to get this year's #PlusOneCollectionIII submission in. Thanks for the reminder Ivan!

So it was a tough one for me to decide. I've spent countless hours so far this year sorting through my work trying to decide on a selection of prints for a printed portfolio. So by the time submissions were being taken, I was kind of burned out. My selection here is for many reason. It was made on a day when I was with a couple of my favorite photographers. Normally, I do not expect much from my work when I am out with such people, the distraction is just too much. Somehow, as the three of us stood and looked over the scene, I managed to expose this scene properly. 

Ehhh... Enough of the stories. I just like this one.

Thanks again +Andy Lee  and +Ivan Makarov  for their dedication to a great project. ___Wow!! One of my very favorites so far. Much thanks to +Steve-Maxx landeros for submitting this one to #PlusOneCollectionIII

ANNOUNCING PLUS ONE COLLECTION III CHARITABLE CAUSE

It's with great pleasure and honor that I'd like to introduce you to the cause we'll be supporting with this year's proceeds from the sale of the Plus One Collection photobook we're putting together. The cause we chose is The Samburu Project, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides access to safe, clean and drinking water to communities in Kenya. 

What's one thing we all have in common as people in the world? We all need water to survive. While good water is easily accessible to most of us in the developed world, it's a luxury for many people elsewhere and it affects their health, their opportunities and the length of their lives. Let's help!

What are we going to do? We'll use the proceeds to build one water well that will bless the lives of many.

It's with great pleasure and honor that I'd like to introduce you to the cause we'll be supporting with this year's proceeds from the sale of the Plus One Collection photobook we're putting together. The cause we chose is The Samburu Project, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides access to safe, clean and drinking water to communities in Kenya. 

What's one thing we all have in common as people in the world? We all need water to survive. While good water is easily accessible to most of us in the developed world, it's a luxury for many people elsewhere and it affects their health, their opportunities and the length of their lives. Let's help!

What are we going to do? We'll use the proceeds to build one water well that will bless the lives of many. 

How much do we need to raise? We need to raise about $17,500 which will be used to drill and construct the well. It's a high goal, but I know we can do it and we'll do new things this year we haven't done before. More marketing, more publicity, sale of prints, and a photo exhibit of work donated to the project, besides the publishing the book itself, of course.  

To get to know The Samburu Project, please take a look through their websire - http://www.thesamburuproject.org/ and also click on the video I linked. 

If you're a part of our project, please continue to spread the word, and share the news with your circles. 

REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE ONLY 4 DAYS LEFT TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK FOR PUBLICATION. DON'T WAIT!

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Who can get published? Anyone! We hope to get as many submissions as possible. Due to the volume, we can’t publish them all, but we will publish as many as we can. 

Is there a theme this year? Yes, there is. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World” and the book will be split into three sections - “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”. You can interpret it however you’d like - we’d love to see how you express these. 

Do we accept color or B&W images? Either one is great.

How can you submit the work? Here are simple instructions: 

1 - Download and fill out image release form from here - http://goo.gl/brpX6n (you can even scan it using your phone, or use apps such as SignNow or TurboScan)
2 - Fill out the information about yourself and upload your work here - http://form.jotform.us/form/40565430045144
3 - Upload your submission to Google+, and tag it with #PlusOneCollectionIII tag 

Can you submit more than one image? Sure! You can submit first image for free. To submit three images to all three themes, or even three images to one theme (which increases your chances to get published), please make a small donation of $20 to our charitable cause (again, all of that will be donated with the book proceeds). Here’s the link to donate via PayPal - http://goo.gl/OSwT9k

Will you showcase all the submissions? Yes. All submissions will show up in the SmugMug gallery we will setup in the next day or two. Please allow 48 hours for your photo to appear there. 

When will you announce which images made it into the book? We will announce it in early April. 

The last day to submit your images is March 17!

Please help us spread the world about this by sharing this post. 

Questions? Leave them in the comments. ___Less than a week left to submit images to the new volume of the Plus One Collection photo book. We are targeting June as the month the book will hit the shelves.

Terrific submission by +Robin Griggs Wood to the #PlusOneCollectionIII  book we're slowing building. 

To see what's been sent so far, take a look here - http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection-III/i-zRxDWsM

Quick hint - lots of landscapes coming in, and not many shots of people or architecture. So if you have some, that may increase your chances of making it into the book. 

PlusOne Collection III

A reshare, as submission to the #PlusOneCollectionIII. If you've not heard about this yearly G+ Photographers project for charity, spearheaded by +Ivan Makarov, read all about it at the link below. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World”. It's a worthy cause for a worthy cause.

About this image:

As Two Become One
I would love to say that it was my mad-skillz at photography that captured this perfect moment where their two left eyes merged to that singular one––so that you couldn't tell where a portion of the face of one zebra ended and the other began. Though, I will say that, if you happen upon a couple of zebras cavorting about on a … ahem … date … use a fast shutter speed on drive mode and just hold that shutter button down until your crossed fingers cramp up … ;o7

The Bemoustached Rajput is one of the many attendants at Jaipur's City Palace who are adorned in the traditional Rajput Gear from Colonial Times. If you are in Jaipur, this is a location that one must visit.

The Taj Mahal needs no introduction. The story behind this image involves me spending some time with my ageing father doing what we both like doing best… exploring the local town. On a cold January morning, we headed down to the banks of the Yamuna to catch a ferry. We had made arrangements with a local boatman the previous evening to be there for a sunrise shot. 

The Bicheno Blowhole comes from the edge of the world... literally. Bicheno is a small coastal town in Tasmania. Its main drawcard is the Blowhole - a hole in the rocky beach that spews water vertically when the waves break. Depending on the time of the day and the tides, the jet varies in strength... but it puts on a regular display. This was shot on an evening when light was dying. The horizon behind me was clear.. the horizon in front was overcast with a storm approaching, and made for the perfect canvas for the late evening sun to light up.

I'll publish all the submission to an online gallery tomorrow!

Just uploaded my submission to this year's Plus One Collection III book in the category "Our Planet". I chose this particular photo from the "Winter im Ries" series because it reminds me of the area I was born and raised. Also known as Heimat in my mother tongue :-)

Thank you +Ivan Makarov and +Andy Lee for making this happen once more! Let me know if I can be of any help.

TOMORROW Plus One Collection 2013 begins

Thank you for your patience! I've been buried on personal and work front, and had zero time to spend on this. But I'm ready to take on the new volume of +Plus One Collection photo book, which we will publish this spring. All details about submission process will come out tomorrow morning.

But here's the high level overview of the process -

1. We'll launch the submission process.
2. We'll launch the Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaign for the cost of the book printing.
3. We'll pick the photos for the book
4. We'll design and print the book.
5. The book will go on sale.

We're getting a late start this year (all my fault!), but I'm confident we can ship the book before the summer begins - or so will be the goal.

Plus One Collection - HELP ME FINALIZE THE THEME

We need to finalize the theme and start collecting images, so help me through this process!

Sorry it’s taking me a while to come up with this. The last few weeks were extremely busy on the travel and personal front, but I’m trying to refocus and get this process going ASAP. 

I’m still working through the charity component of it all. I think we have a great project in mind for this year and I’ll share as soon as we have concrete details. In the meantime, let’s finalize the theme! 

What we came up in my last post about this is that while it would be great to have a theme, we should make it as broad as possible, thus appealing to as many photographers and buyers as possible.

What we came up in my last post about this is that while it would be great to have a theme, we should make it as broad as possible, thus appealing to as many photographers and buyers as possible. 

So how about this idea? 

The main theme is “Our World in 2013.” The book will then split into three main sections - (a) our planet (exotic landscape, nature and wildlife shots), (b) our people (people, family, portraits), and (c) our creations (cool architecture, urban life, country life - etc - artificial things we created and what they looked like in 2013). 

I think the key to this year’s book will be the diversity of work. For example, I love Yosemite as much as anyone - but I’d love to see other places around the world in the “our planet” section, and we wouldn’t include more than one Yosemite shot, switching focus to showcast other great places that make our world so beautiful. 

How does that sound? If we agree on the theme, I’m happy to create the submission process and get going on the next steps. ___

I just returned from spending a couple of weeks in Europe. I visited London, Edinburgh (work related) and Barcelona (non-work related). Great times. I'm very familiar with UK, having lived there for two years and I always feel at home there. Somehow we avoided the rain! 

And Spain? Wow. What an amazing country. I love everything about it - people, architecture, weather, Leonel Messi, food.. FOOD! Oh my.

Few minutes ago I received an email saying I requested a password change to my Instagram account (which I didn't). I tried logging into my account, but it's locked.

There seem to be no way to contact Instagram support because all their help pages are dead ends and there is no way to submit a support ticket.

If that's the case, this seems like a major security hole in their system and why are we investing hours into that platform when we can lose our accounts so easily. ___

What's this? That's +Michael Bonocore shooting my son Maks who's playing hockey right now at the SAP Center, an NHL arena where San Jose Sharks play their home games. I'm out of town and I jokingly suggested Michael should go and shoot it. But he actually went and did!

That's a big game for Maks as this is his first time playing at such a famous arena. I'm bummed to be away but very grateful for Bono doing a good deed and helping us capture that big moment in Maks' life.
