Thomas Hawk7,308,135One of our favorite San Francisco photographers is very shortly to become one of our favorite London photographers.  Yes, Chris Chabot has joined the flock at Twitter and is moving to LONDON!To send Chris off in style, we will be having one last epic Chris Chabot photowalk -- and what better place for a photowalk with Chris than the annual Burning Man Decompression event.If you have never shot Decom before, you are in for a treat.  It's a visual smorgasbord of pure delight.We will meet at the second entrance, near the corner of 20th and Minnesota Streets at 2:30 pm sharp.  Bring your Canon or Nikon or iPhone or Android... or better yet, be like Chris and bring a Leica!  Whatever you shoot, come and hang out with some great SF photographers and help send Chris off in style.  All skill levels welcome.It's $15 to enter Decom.  More details on the event here:  http://goo.gl/XkJlgnIt's the Chris Chabot Farewell Decompression Photowalk!!!!2013-10-13 23:30:00127G+

Thomas Hawk7,308,135The one and only +Camera Labs Guru +Gordon Laing is coming to town and we are going to celebrate in style.  Join us on Thursday, October 11th for a special dinner / photowalk.  We are going to start the evening off at 5:30pm at Henry Hunan's on Sansome Street in San Francisco (note there are several Henry Hunan's, this is the one on Sansome in North Beach).  We'll enjoy some of San Francisco's best chinese food and then head up to go shoot the tallest building in SF, the Transamerica Building at sunset/dusk.  We'll shoot the building from the Montgomery Street overlook -- one of the best locations to shoot This iconic William Pereira spire from.  Afterwards we'll float around North Beach shooting more of the historic architecture and night life before ending up the night at Specs' Twelve Adler Museum for a few later evening adult beverages.  Specs' is a throwback to old school San Francisco that the SF Weekly describes as "one of the few bars left where you can ask for a martini and get a cold glass of gin and a little vermouth without having to answer a bunch of damn fool questions."Rumor has it the smoothest dude alive +Daniel Krieger will also be joining us from NYC and +Suzanne Haggerty will be up from Los Angeles.  What a great night for photography this will be.  Come on out for a great G+ Photography evening!A San Francisco Dinner/Photowalk with Gordon Laing2012-10-11 17:30:00133G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:145001353999CC G+

Jeff Sullivan1,152,722Most-Followed 500 Photographers CircleWhile a circle like this has the obvious drawback of missing some excellent photographers newer to the site, Charles often follows up his Top 500 Most Followed Photographer circle with circles going all the way down to photographers with less than 5000 contacts.  Here are four circles Charles has created to help us discover and recognize photographers at all levels within the G+ community:Under 5000 -    Under 7500 -    Under 15,000 - 500 Most Followed Photographers - (here)I like to interact with people who are active in photography... share at least a photo or two of their own original work per week, so I'll slowly whittle the circle down to a stream of excellent photography (I've started, but may not finish for a few weeks).---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+Charles Lupica  Charles Lupica Dec 25, 2012 (edited)  -  Public►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers list                   circle of 500             and Group 6: 421 to 500►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄If you're not in this circle and you think you should be, I'm sorry.  I have missed a few people by pure accident.  My methods are entirely manual and I do miss people.  I have checked every profile and I have included only those people that share their own work, and share it on G+.

André Distel4,019The People I FollowSo, here it is - my first circle share. I have a lot more people in my circles than I actually follow. With limited time and other social networking sites, I figure, I can only follow so many on a regular basis. The people in this circle are all top photographers and highly active on Google+ or simply interesting people.Don't worry if you are not in there. I have had probably not enough time to look at your stream in more detail with all the people I already follow. Just comment and let me know you are out there :). I always appreciate if people share circles with me in them, so I thought I might do that as well.Cheers,Andréwww.andredistel.com 2012-11-06 19:30:09213508CC G+

I'm in the process of moving all my websites to Amazon Web Services and during the move realized that two of my sites were suffering under the load of brute force password attacks.

If you are not familiar with a brute force attack it's when hackers use a network of zombie computers to attempt repeated logins into your wordpress install using many thousands of password combinations.

I knew something was up as my server had started to routinely running out of memory. It took watching the raw apache access log files of the server to figure our exactly what was going on.

Watch Out for Brute Force Password Attacks

I burned a half day on this so sharing here in case others are too...

I'm in the process of moving all my websites to Amazon Web Services and during the move realized that two of my sites were suffering under the load of brute force password attacks.

If you are not familiar with a brute force attack it's when hackers use a network of zombie computers to attempt repeated logins into your wordpress install using many thousands of password combinations.

I knew something was up as my server had started to routinely running out of memory. It took watching the raw apache access log files of the server to figure our exactly what was going on.

Turns out the hackers were targeting my sites that were running the WooCommerce plugin. A little research surfaced that I was not alone and basically any of the popular ecommerce plugins are being targeted.

There are some cool security plugins out there but none of them seem to prevent this type of attack. To stop the attack I had to add some clever apache rewrite rules to my htaccess file to prevent the zombies from POSTing logins/passwords directly to wp-login.php without actually visiting that page.

Also, to be safe I rotated all my passwords to be 50 characters long which would take a very long time to guess - even with a zombie network...

Prior to stopping the attack I was seeing CPU utilization rates in the 60-75% range. After I put the fix in place that fell to 5-15% and the site became much much more responsive.

So... if you run any of the popular ecommerce plugins you are likely going to be exposed to this. Be sure to look for the signs and take precautions!

Surfing The Sunset -- Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii

Kauai is a magical place and Hanalei Bay is no exception. Filled with paddle surfers, beach goers, and children jumping off its 340 foot pier, it is one of my favorite places on earth to watch the sun sink into the ocean.

Out of Time -- London, England

Double-decker buses streak across space, time and the Westminster Bridge.

I made this image a few weeks ago while in London. Must have been 10 other photographers with tripods on the bridge that night. I only had a tiny gorillapod which meant my +Sony  RX1 was almost sitting on the ground -- helping to create this perspective.

The Image quality and versatility of the RX1 continues to amaze me.

I made this image a few weeks ago while in London. Must have been 10 other photographers with tripods on the bridge that night. I only had a tiny gorillapod which meant my +Sony  RX1 was almost sitting on the ground -- helping to create this perspective.

The Image quality and versatility of the RX1 continues to amaze me.

Battersea Power Station -- London, England

Classic rock pilgrimage complete! I've been waiting a long time to visit the Battersea Power Station. Pretty much ever since picking up my first copy of Pink Floyd's 1977 album Animals -- which is a still a favorite!

Battersea hasn't generated electricity since 1983, however, it still remains on iconic landmark along the Thames river in South West London.

The site is now in the process of being redeveloped into a mixed use residential property - making it hard to access. The plant is walled off or fenced up on all sides of it's 33 acres. I even was chased away by guards twice while trying to find the right vantage spot to take this shot.

Help Wanted Category

We had a great discussion last night on our first WordPress for Photographers community Hangout. One of things we talked about was how hard it is for photographers to find good WordPress developers/consultants that they can hire to customize themes, add features, etc.

Based on that feedback I'm adding a new category to the community called Help Wanted.

Rules to follow when posting to this category...

If you are someone looking to hire a WordPress developer: post a short description of what you need along with a rough budget (doesn't need to be exact, ballpark is fine).

If you are a developer: feel free to introduce yourself along with a single link to your website. Please do not spam this category repeatedly with links and posts promoting yourself or else a moderator will be forced to ban you.

Redwood Forest -- Felton, California 

One of Northern California's most magical features are the old growth redwood forests. 

I've been photographing these trees for a long time now but have always struggled to convey the scale of the trees and the expansive nature of the forest. One would think that a wide angle lens would do the trick, but those lenses make the trees too small. Medium telephoto lenses fail to capture the expansiveness of the forest. I almost gave up.

Then I started shooting large scale Panoramas and WOW. What a difference format makes. This is a 193 mega-pixel panorama made from 10 images taken with my +Phase One  medium format camera and then combined using Auto Pano and Photoshop. 

The detail in the full size file is incredible, so much so that it can be printed five feet wide without having to up-size the file.

Field of Yellow -- Davenport, California

I'm starting to shoot panoramas! Been at it for weeks now and have to admit it's been quite the struggle. The darn iPhone makes it look so easy but there is a ton of new technique to master in order to create high quality fine art panoramas.

This image is seven exposures taken with my Phase One and then stitched together in Photoshop for a whopping 147 mega-pixels. My poor 2011 Macbook Pro is hating life processing these 3GB files. ;)

Aside from the technical stuff I'm finding the hardest part about Panoramas is rethinking composition. The aspect ratio makes composition choices…well...different. I'm still wrapping my head around pre-visualizing composition across seven exposures.

I have a long way to go but am happy with this one. Enjoy.

The Alpine Inn -- Portola Valley, California 

Built in 1852, the Alpine Inn has long been a popular drinking establishment for locals and Stanford students (especially during the dry campus years). 

However, it's the recent years that have made this unassuming roadhouse into one of Silicon Valley's top technology pilgrimage sites.

You see... one day in 1978, researchers from SRI's mobile radio laboratory chose the Alpine Inn as the site from which they would transmit the first message (an e-mail of sorts) across two networks using the now popular "TCP" networking protocol.

The radio lab (a van) and terminal used to send the first e-mail are now housed at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, however a plaque commemorating the event can be found at the Inn.

+The Arcanum  Launches!

Here's another big idea from +Trey Ratcliff.

I'm super excited to be a part of this and here's why... 

Many of the photographers that I consider living masters today got their start as "assistants" to other photographers. They agreed to work all hours of the day/night (for very low pay) in order to learn the craft from their master. Needless to say, being a photographer's assistant isn't something that everyone can do.

What's so cool about +The Arcanum is that technology now makes this same master/apprentice learning model much more accessible to a far wider group of photographers.  Apprentices can access/learn from masters but do so at their own speed and on their own terms.

If you've ever been on a photowalk with Trey (or any of us) you might have experienced shades of this. It could havebee... more »

Santa Maria in Trastevere -- Rome, Italy

Trastevere is one of my favorite parts of Rome to walk around in as it's filled with hidden gems as well as a patina that I haven't quite found anywhere else. It is also home to the Basilica di Santa Maria - one of the oldest churches in Rome.

This photo started out by mistake with me inadvertently zooming the lens during a hand held, long, exposure. That first attempt was a total failure but it gave me the idea to exaggerate the technique in a way that could add some drama to the windows.

Keep Portland Weird -- Portland, Oregon

Portland is going through a bit of a renaissance these days. Neighborhoods are getting cleaned up, the startup technology scene is booming and housing prices are on the rise. 

However, the changes are not welcomed by everyone. Some long time residents fear that the gentrification will ruin Portland by turning it into a cookie-cutter city dominated by chain stores and a high cost of living.

Hence the rally cry "Keep Portland Weird". I didn't understand what that really meant until I started spending time at +Cloudability HQ.  Now I see that Portland is definitely a unique and weird place.

Take Michael Krupp, a.k.a. Blue Man, for example.  Most days you can find him on Broadway. No one knows why's he's blue or why he's out on the street day after day.

That mystery probably doesn't even matter anymore as Blue Man has become somewhat of an icon for the weird struggle to keep the status quo. So much so that he served the city council a poetic 30-day notice to "vacate the premisses" (which you can see here: http://goo.gl/x27iZ5).

Yesterday, I caught up with Blue Man myself. He was kind enough to let me take his portrait.

New Full Frame Sony Cameras

Looking forward to getting my hands on these new cameras. If the image quality is anything like my RX1this is going to be a big big hit for Sony.


New Sony A7R Full-Frame mirrorless takes computational photography to a new level!
I got a sneak preview of the whole new Sony camera system. Here’s what you need to know. I’m not gonna take eight paragraphs to tell you the basics. You’re smart; here are the key factors about the new Sony A7R: Full-Frame, 36 Megapixels, Weather-sealed, Crazy autofocus tricks, Much improved noise-reduction, Built-in WIFI and NFC, Improved-everything-else.

Am I switching?
Yes! Absolutely! I consider this a major upgrade from my NEX-7.  Read my full write-up over on my blog: http://www.stuckincustoms.com/2013/10/16/new-sony-a7r-full-frame-mirrorless-takes-computational-photography-to-a-new-level/___New Full Frame Sony Cameras

The Queen -- San Francisco, California

I headed up to San Francisco yesterday to see our friend +Chris Chabot off to London with a proper photowalk, organized by +Thomas Hawk, at Decompression (a Burning Man after party).

There are lots of people to photograph at these party/festivals. My favorite was this royal portrait of the Queen. 

Also, I had some very interesting conversations with people about Burning Man. There were a few times when I couldn't help but feel like I was in one of those exchanges from the movie The Lost Boys. You know, where the Vampires are telling Michael one thing but meaning something else very different...

Best of all it was great to catchup with everyone and to shoot another festival with Chris before the English get ahold of him.

Scoble at C2SV -- San Jose, California

+Robert Scoble kicked off C2SV (a new Silicon Valley tech/Music festival) this year with a very cool presentation about the "Age of Context".  All of this context aware computing is pretty crazy stuff. Robert's got a whole new book out about it which you can buy here: http://goo.gl/cRnLRH

More of my C2SV photos are over at my Silicon Valley photoblog - In Startup Land: http://www.instartupland.com/?p=1149

Teri Gender Bender -- San Jose, California 

I got to photograph the Bosnian Rainbows playing at C2SV this weekend. It was an awesome set. Teri (lead singer) really brings it. This was my favorite shot but you can see more photos of them here:

I'll be there for part of the time so be sure to ping me if you are going.

Got to spend time last week with an extremely talented group of founders and executives from +Foundry Group  companies. It's always good times when you can meet people in real life and learn from their experiences.

For example, I had a chance to talk with +BJ Heinley who runs UX and design for +Spanning - which sells a much needed service that backups your entire Google Apps install. Yes, you can easily lose Google docs, mail, and calendar data without even knowing it. 

BJ's been designing web experiences since the web 1.0 days and easily straightened me out on several UX things that I was struggling with. 

How did I repay the favor? I made him stand still for a quick portrait in a room of 75 people.  :) Thanks BJ.
