Robert Scoble1,236,665500 Hand Picked Photographers. Unfortunately only 500 people can be shared (I have 617 in this circle). I also am near my maximum of 5,000 circled (Google keeps me from circling more) so it's tough to add more, but I'm always looking to see more great photography, so if you aren't in this circle, leave your URL below so we can all check you out.By the way, I need to go through all my circles and look for inactive people again. It's been a while since I did that. If I were you I'd throw these 500 into a temporary circle, watch it for a while and move the ones you like into a circle of your own.Thank you to those of you who bring beauty into our lives. Everytime I need some inspiration I look to this circle.2012-04-22 18:03:4850014653148CC G+

Gailen Mapes7,020Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera A-C - 1 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 500 members.My last share of the "hand picked" circles was March 15. As 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 March 22 for this set.A word about spam... A lot of previously good photographers are sharing a lot of goofy stuff these days. Remember, if you are in the "Hand Picked" circles, you are represented as "more photos, less spam." Goofy animated GIFs don't hack it and I reserve the right to drop you from these circles. So if you were dropped, this is probably the reason. (I have the same 5000 limit as everyone else. I can't afford to keep spammers in my circles.)2012-03-22 20:10:473591235CC G+

Gerard Charnley16,174UK Photogs V2.0Hi folks,Several people have recently stated that they see my UK photographers shared circle as the official UK list. I must say I'm immensely flattered by this :) But it does mean that I need to be a little more proactive so I thought I'd start sharing it on a regular basis.Now seems an appropriate time for V2 given there is another circle sharing frenzy going on! So let me know if you are UK based, are active on G+ and want to be added! Note that in the next version I will be weeding out anyone that's inactive and hasn't posted in over a month. Please share if you can.Cheers, Gez.2011-12-06 12:52:132187096CC G+

More than 500 photographers. I've tried to keep it to only active photographers and only folks who post high-quality images. As with all my circles, these are a work in progress. If you are missing from them, please let me know. Also, if you see people who aren't active (in other words, who haven't posted in the past month) or who aren't high enough quality to keep in here, feel free to drop me a line at scobleizer@gmail.com or leave a comment here and I'll reevaluate.

*Friday, 6 July 2012 , 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM *

For tonight’s event we look at low key images.  Think dark backgrounds (not always black), think shadows, think side lighting.

I am pleased to announce that the model for this event will be Zombie Candy aka Amber Dolovak Amber has been to the studio twice before and has proved a big hit both times. You can see her profile on purpleport here: http://purpleport.com/portfolio/zombiecandy/?referrer=iansstudio and on Purestorm here:http://www.purestorm.com/ZombieCandy

We will also look at techniques to add a little colour to the dark background including the use of gels, and using coloured background but allowing them to go dark using the inverse square law.

Price: £29

A few thoughts about the US Olympic team photos

The internet is awash with comments about some photos by Joe Klamar.  You can see one such page here: http://www.petapixel.com/2012/07/01/us-olympic-team-portraits-come-under-scrutiny/ and a full gallery here: http://www.cbsnews.com/2300-33747_162-10012296.html?tag=page

Ok, before we have a witch hunt... I'd like to know some more info about these images. They are clearly straight out of the camera shots pre editing. The photographer was one of many who were shooting that day on their own set-ups, apparently under extremely difficult conditions. I've done a quick search (not extensive research) about this and the only people who are publishing the images appear to be people who want to criticise them. Have they been published by the US Olympic organisation? I can't find them. Have they been published by thephoto... more »

Microphone tests....Feedback Required (!)
This weeks #IanStudio videocast is now on-line: http://youtu.be/hB_9vbgN9uo?hd=1 - I really need some feedback on this one folks. This is a series of tests of different microphones. Is the set up I describe at the end of the video the best solution? What do you think about the sound quality of this and other videos I have produced?

Messy Art Nude
Need to give Saturday's Messy Art Nude workshop a plug (http://www.ians-studio.co.uk/events/messy-art-nude-workshop/) - the images we create are very different from you standard art nude work and these sort of shoots are always great fun to do. Oh yes we have a fantastic model too!

Video 005 Photo Critique - Yuri Vashchenko

My first #IansStudio photo critique video has just gone live on YouTube: http://youtu.be/lVnexqMpwIA?hd=1 - In this video I critique 10 images by +Yuri Vashchenko from Vladivostok, Russia. Be warned it is quite a long video - 35mins - but that is because I wanted to do justice in my comments on Yuri's images. Let me know what you think folks - too long? Reduce the number of images used in critiques? Split critiques over a couple of videos?

Time to start the hype.....

I have got lots of ideas for #IansStudio (+Ian's Studio) photography videos. Several of them are already in post production. Lookout for the official launch coming soon! The videos will include... "Creating a Caricature Portrait"; "How to create a multiplicity image"; "Stock photograph: Rights Managed or Royalty Free"; An interview with +New To Photo host +Richard Bradbury plus a couple of critique videos.

Do you want your photos critiqued?
I am in the process of recording a range of photography tutorial/training videos and I am looking for a volunteer to have have their some of their photos critiqued.

The critique will be in the form of a video, that will be released on my website and through various other channels (such as youtube). The critique will be constructive but it will also be honest - if I don't like something I will say so.

If you want to volunteer you will need to supply full resolution copies of 6-10 of your BEST images for me to critique. You will also need to ensure that the shooting data (exif data) is intact.

If you are interested. Do NOT send me anything yet - just reply to this post and I will select my first volunteer and contact you directly and tell you how to send the images to me.

POTD 11 Feb 2012 : Art Nude (42/366)

Art nude: naked back of a young woman at Ian's Studio, Stockport, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

This was one of the image from the Art Nude workshop at the studio. I like the way you can only see small sections of her body but there is enough to know what you are looking at without showing anything explicit.

(Just realised how far behind I am on posting my POTD photos to G+ all taken, and on the right days just the uploading that is behind).

A hat glowing due to a light (flash gun, speedlight) underneath it

This was a bit of a last minute POTD image. There's some about the final image I quite like, but I can't quite define what it is.

(Still playing catch-up)

Lynx Instinct deoderent spray. Ian's Studio, Stockport, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

You would be amazed at what gets left at the studio. Discovered this deodorant spray on the shelf where I keep the radio triggers. Don't know how long it has been there or who brought it in. But as I was short of a POTD and I need to increase my "product shot" portfolio it became my subject of the day. Thank you to who ever left it behind.

Water droplets on a rotary washing line, creating bokeh patterns Heaton Mersey, Stockport, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

There was wonderful sunlight hitting the water droplets on the washing line. Shallow DOF and it was just asking for a bokeh abstract image. So that is what I took.

Me at the Bocca della Veritas (24 Feb 2004)
There is a legend that says if a liar put his/her hand in the Bocca Della Veritas that the mouth will bite it off. "The Staff" put me in there feet first, and I'll be honest I did struggle to get out. The staff said that makes me a "Bear-faced liar!". I wasn't amused!

Oddly enough The Staff sold this picture of me a few years later... to a Japanese TV company for use in a TV show. The staff said it was just bizzare... I said: "No... I am a mega star so why wouldn't they want me on their show?"

POTD 03 Feb 2012 : Nude woman with rose petals (34/366)

Nude woman lying on a bed covered in rose petals Ian's Studio, Stockport, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

This is one of the images from our "Glamour Clichés Night" at the studio. The idea is that we take a clichéd glamour theme (in this case nude on a bed with rose petals) and after shooting the cliché we rework it into something a bit different. For the nude on bed of petals we decided to go for a shallow depth of field and a low angle. I've also decided to desaturate and soften the resultant image in post production.

You can see the full set of images from the shoot here: http://photos.imb.biz/model/shoot/wendylousecliche (Please note - as you might expect the album contains clichés.... and nudity)

Me at Trevi Fountain (24 Feb 2004)
They say if you throw a coin in Trevi Fountain, you will return to Rome. It doesn't work... or at least it hasn't worked yet.

You can't image the grief I got off "the staff" - he never stopped complaining about me throwing money away. I told him it's just a small coin, I'm a mega star, I can afford it. It's not as though it's his money anyhow... We'll actually I suppose it was... like the Queen, I don't carry money. And besides which I wasn't for throwing my money into a fountain!

(In catch-up mode again... I am a little behind on the posting of my POTD images... but they are all taken AND on the right days too!).

Shell filling station Hazel Grove, Stockport, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

A quick shot taken while filling up Ann's car. A little bit of spot colouring (shock horror) and a split tone blue effect. Also added a vignette to emphasise the darkness outside the filling station.

Silk rose petals in a wine glass. Ian's Studio, Stockport, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

This was just a quick shot I took at the studio using some props I have shoots. The wine glass was from the sloping coloured water shots and the rose petals are for a glamour clichés shoot.

Me at the Colosseum (23 Feb 2004)
Emperor Beni the first of Rome... it certainly has a ring to it! I've always thought of myself as someone who should be in command, so Rome was the obvious place to go to visit, and I fitted in perfectly. Especially with my toga and laurel wreath. (The laurel wreath in ancient Rome was only worn by Emperors).

I particularly like the Colosseum. With the knowledge that the Emperor had the fate of people in his hands. Thumb up for life, thumb down for death. I've just overheard "The Staff" muttering something along the lines of: "Thank goodness the bear doesn't have thumbs" - if he carries on like this I'll be throwing him to the lions... thumbs or no thumbs!
