Adobe589,555It looks like a light show, but there was a lot that went behind the making of design director Bradley G. Munkowitz’s (a.k.a. GMUNK) interpretation of our logo: http://adobe.ly/GMUNK. Join us as we sit down to talk about his inspiration and how he went about playing with the different light properties. And, don’t be shy. We’re taking questions. Share below now or during the hangout. Our moderator, Karl Isaac, our director of Brand Strategy & Innovation, will be taking your questions.  About Adobe Remix We invited a select group of creatives to express what Adobe means to them through their work. We asked them to play, experiment, hack, make, socialize, datafy, dimensionalize, illustrate, and mashup our logo any way they see fit as part of the Adobe logo remix – placing their mark on our mark: https://www.behance.net/adoberemix.Behind the Making of GMUNK’s #AdobeRemix2014-08-11 22:00:00274

You can post ideas on the community page in Photo Challenge Feedback section (minimum three photos/edits) to get early feedback if you wish.  - *The Open Hangout* is mainly to be used for meeting other photographers, who are online, to openly discuss work and meeting the moderators.  _All Habitual Light Catchers community members are automatically invited to these monthly events but this is the first time we are making the events open to the public. So book your place and feel free to invite other photographers. *+1 and share the event*_  Leading lines is a powerful technique for drawing the eye to a particular part of a photo and when used effectively can be used to bring out a striking message in an image. It can be applied to almost any genre of photography, which is why we are looking for strong leading lines photos from all types of techniques. Here's just a few of the links that inspired us for this month's challenge: http://erickimphotography.com/blog/2013/10/16/street-photography-composition-lesson-4-leading-lines/  http://www.lightstalking.com/leading-lines-as-a-compositional-tool-for-better-photographs http://121clicks.com/tutorials/elements-of-composition-the-magic-of-leading-lines  This challenge is designed to test your creativity and your ability to capture a striking leading lines shots, and give you a chance to practice photo composition. There are no limits to exposure, shutter speeds or camera type so you can be as creative as you like. As always we want to create a great collection of images that the public and members can vote on and show their appreciation by +1ing and commenting. Lots of great ideas have been coming in about future challenges, so thank you to all who have helped build these ideas. Any further ideas are always welcome, if possible with example images/links to use for event theme image.  Enjoy and have fun, @114291588670916892236   If you want to join the community, request to join here:  https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/111319705064931294553 Link to browse throJuly's Photo Challenge - "Leading Lines" (One Photo Each.

Ron Clifford2,864,529On the show +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn   will share how she got started in astrophotography, explain her fabulous setup and show a few of her favourite deep sky images, (you don't want to miss this!). Afterwards, Kerry-Ann get into an example of her workflow for processing a deep sky astro image from pre processing (image stacking) to final post processing in Photoshop...... I have got to see this. "After getting my first telescope at the age of 11 and then my first film camera as a teenager I was hooked on the concept of taking pictures of deep space.

Meilani MacDonald14,686Photographers @104355888553035365377 and @118390125072182346579 have built a thriving business for their StuStuStudio. Their activity on social media sites, including Google+. has played a big role in the growth of the studio over the past couple of years.  Mike and Nicole will be joining us to share their success story and tell us how they used social media to promote their business.   Many photographers who are getting into social media have questions about whether they should share their photos over social media sites.  Is the risk of people using their photos without purchasing them worth the wide audience potential?  Does it devalue their beautiful work? These are some of the topics that will be discussed as Mike and Nicole take us along on their journey to success! The TGIF Business Networking Hangout is for small business owners and entrepreneurs who want to network, give themselves a little promo time on air, share questions and advice, and learn from their peers.  Won't you join us? *Where to Find Past Episodes*  There is a past episode in this event listing, you can find all past episodes at: http://www.youtube.com/user/MeiWorksConsulting/videos *How To Join This Hangout on Air* You MUST send me a request if you would like to be invited into the peanut gallery!

Trever McGhee95,800Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with.

Color or BW?
Which do you like better and why?
This is one of my favorite shots I have ever taken.  70 seconds at the local boat launch in Lewiston, NY.
Obviously the monochrome has been heavily edited and stylized.  I also artificially extended the left crop because I didn't like the dock so close to the edge.

Well that was fast, after getting a notification on the 23rd for another photo I got this email on the 24th!!!
This is my 4th photo to be featured on Chromecast and I couldn't be more psyched about it! :)
BTW - all 4 are Long Exposure so I think the selection team has a soft spot for LE which I can understand because I do too!
Thanks +Google+ / +Google Photos!!!

In trying to get some highlights added to my "Honors" collection I couldn't forget the time +Dave Besbris mentioned me in his 3 year Google+ Anniversary post!  Hope to meet some of these guys someday :)  #honored  

This is a picture of some of the people who built Google+, but they are not the ones who make it. Those of you reading this do. And I want to thank you all for spending time with us and making this place your own. We've got a lot of exciting things planned for the future and it's been a blast hanging out with you for the last three years.  

Whether you’re into star gazing, boy bands, or football: you’ve all made Google+ an amazing place to explore the things you love, with the people who love them too. To celebrate our community, create a post and tell us: who are your people on Plus?

Here are mine:

+Michael B. Stuart, +Robin Griggs Wood, and +Wesly Smith. These are some of my many people on Plus.

Three years ago today we started the Google+ project. Back then I took the occasional smartphone photo, but that was about it. It was folks like Michael, Robin and Wesly who inspired me to be creative with my pictures. And because of their encouraging +1s, tips, and inspirational #bokehlicious  pictures, photography has gone from just a casual interest to my new favorite pastime. I've even been introduced as "that guy who takes pretty pictures of flowers!"

Sunrise at Ocean Avenue Beach
Hyannis Port - Barnstable, MA 7/10/2015 5:32am
ISO100 24mm f/8.0 116s
Just got back from an awesome family vacation to Cape Cod. We had a great time: our youngest turned 2, saw some family, ate a bunch of delicious seafood, and actually found time to capture some shots I'm pretty happy with (like this one!)

1st of 3 photos featured on Chromecast!

Its Roar Awoke the Sun
Niagara Falls
Taken 2/20/2015
I took 2 days off work last week and we went to an indoor waterpark in Niagara Falls, ON.  On Friday morning I planned on getting up to shoot the sunrise right at the edge of the Horseshoe Falls.  Thursday was unbelievably cold out so I wondered about wether I'd actually be able to handle the elements for more than a few minutes with nothing between me and some of the coldest breath Mother Nature had to offer!  Well I decided it was not an option to pass up on this rare opportunity so I set the alarm!  When I got to the van it showed -8 as the current temp.  I shivered while it warmed and suddenly realized I had a problem.  Being the non plan-ahead type I didn't have my gloves...  They were in the hotel room with the sleeping family.  I'll be fine I said.  Well, the wind chill was around -38 and let's just say my hands still burn a little under hot water from the slight frostbite.  Never again will I make that mistake.  I probably could have stayed another 10 minutes otherwise.  That being said I got a bunch of cool shots to share since while I was doing these long exposures I had my wife's camera (better than mine).
This is a 51 second exposure with ISO400 24mm f/8.0 using a B+W 10 stop ND filter.  The ND filter was put on in the car since I knew it would be too cold to screw it on.  This meant I couldn't auto focus or see anything to manually focus, but luckily infinity worked great.
Hope you like!

I think I've cracked the code!
1. Upload full size to Google Photos (will shrink to new 16 MP max)
2. Add to a new album - it's going to be a private throwaway album.  I'm calling mine "Holding Pattern Alpha"
3. Use the share box on Google+ to choose from your Google Photos, find your throwaway album.
4. Once you've chosen the photo add it to the album you really want it in via the drop down.

Result: High resolution photo in the album you want keeping the plusses and comments intact.

All this work brought to you by the team of #bokehlicious  bandits comprised of +Leo Deegan +Wesly Smith +Dave Besbris +Robin Griggs Wood +Paul Moody +Wendy Chase +Elizabeth Hahn and more!  Reminding you that Friday's are #bokehlicious

Not a Fan
Photos from Posts drive's me nuts...
If I upload a photo to an album, then share it the plusses and comments are not staying with the photo in the album, but live in the dreaded alternate universe of "Photos from Posts" (see screenshots from my Cape Cod album where the top 3 were uploaded via Google+ Photos, and the bottom 3 Google "no plus" Photos)
That's the only way I know how to now that the instant share box doesn't pop up once an image is added to an album in the new Google Photos.  I liked doing it this way because I can take advantage of the larger upload size.
This functionality seems like a no brainer to me but has constantly been a tricky thing to master.  I guess I'm supposed to get back in line and make a collection for the posts instead.

Dense Fog at Chatham Beach
We were Chatham beach in Cape Cod the day after the initial Great White Shark sighting.  The entire beach was covered in  fog which made the strange scene (not one person swimming, news crews) even weirder.
It did make for some great light for photographs!
This is my youngest and we may never cut his hair :)

Remember the first 5 scrapbook photos = profile header?
Happy 4th Birthday +Google+!
:)

Thanks to +rahul roy for asking me to make a G+ graphic. It lead me to make my own call to action button for people to add me to their circles. Feel free to use it for your profile or page if interested:
Just make it your 5th photo in your Scrapbook album (or 6th if you want it NOT to show up). If you don't know how to reorganize your photos in albums it's easier than it used to be (picasa web albums workaround)
Just go to your photos -> your albums -> scrapbook -> options -> organize album

My photo was on the local news!
"A local photographer is a finalist in an international photo competition..."
+WKBW TV | Buffalo, NY aired my photo of the South Grand Island Bridge that's in the running for the Viewer's Choice Award in the +American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 2015 Bridge Photo Contest.  It was pretty amazing!  Of course I recorded it and made sure my Mom knew to watch!
Still time left to vote if you haven't already :)

Final Slice of Daylight
Lake Erie - Hamburg, NY
From back in 2012 before I learned to always check my lens for smudges.

"SGIB LE"
This was taken around 11am using a 10 stop neutral density filter (aka really dark glass covering front of lens)
Exposed for 60 seconds a f/18, ISO 100 at the lens' widest 24mm.
Hope you like!  It's the South Grand Island Bridge.

Color or BW?
Which do you like better and why?
This is one of my favorite shots I have ever taken.  70 seconds at the local boat launch in Lewiston, NY.
Obviously the monochrome has been heavily edited and stylized.  I also artificially extended the left crop because I didn't like the dock so close to the edge.

 If anyone is so inclined I have a Facebook page I'm looking to increase activity on called Stu Stu Studio Art Photography.  I asked the same question there last night:
