Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-04 15:53:284916168105CC G+
Gailen Mapes25,825Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera R-S - 5 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 15th.)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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-04-05 10:42:48290605CC G+

Gene Bowker45,757Photographers to follow 2013 #alphabetcircles    by +Gene Bowker First Name H-JSo how did I decide who is in the circles this time?1) Active : They have posted within the last month. With the holidays a lot of folks have slowed down but these folks are still there. Yes, I visited each stream.2) Original These photographers are sharing "THEIR OWN WORK" and their stream is mostly photography. 3) Interactive I try to find folks who are interactive and comment on their own posts and the posts of others.There are some names you will recognize in here for sure but there are also some folks you probably don't know yet. Hopefully you will take some time to check them out and see if they have room in your circles.Not in hereGo ahead and circle the folks in the circle anyway =) Then you can read more about how I select at https://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/NeJZXLJ6oQBBe Original. Be Active.

Gene Bowker39,058How to have a better stream - Part One #StreamCircle  Someone recently mentioned to me about how they couldn't seem to find good photography in their stream.Well.. here is my way to help that.These are active photographers who have a variety of styles and cover everything from point-and-shooters to some of the top pro's on G+.  I've been through each one's stream and they all can offer you something to make your stream better. Say howdy to them and see if your stream is not a more visual place.Like the circle.. feel free to share it and help share some great photographers.I'll share the 2nd 1/2 of this circle in the next few days.2012-08-13 23:27:51351946663CC G+

The Art Of Portrait

One of Annie Leibovitz' elaborate portrait shots. This particular one featuring Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen shows that she isn't dubbed the best in that field for nothing.

The Missus would be pretty excited if this works out. She loved Edge of Tomorrow, and we both love the original Victory.  Question is, can they work in Sly and Michael Caine cameos.

Quick Bok Choy Soup

You won't be surprised that my fave part of learning about calories while trying to lose some weight (some as in, nearly 50lbs) is discovering new ways to cook. Cause, you know, if it's not tasty, I'm not going to stick with it.

About 4 cups of chicken stock (I used one whole carton of the Kirkland stuff from Costco), 6-7 bok choy leaves and stems chopped crosswise (3-4 cups chopped), 5 baby bell mushrooms chopped coarse (about 3 cups chopped), 2 tsp each of soy sauce and sesame oil, about a tablespoon of minced garlic from a jar (fresh is better, but I said "quick"), salt and pepper to taste. brought the stock to a boil, through in all the stuff, simmer for 4-5 min, done! So yummy! Naturally, I added a little heat to mine with a splash of my home-made habanero hot sauce, but even without that touch of heat the Missus gave it two thumbs up (finishing a whole bowl when she said she just wanted a taste).

The kicker is the calories. About 10/cup for bok choy, 10/cup on the Kirkland chicken stock, 20/cup for the mushrooms, and about 20 cal total in the sesame oil. So, I had two big bowls (maybe 4 cups), ended up totally full, and probably took in 150 calories. 150! I estimate I could have added a cup of firm tofu to the mix and about doubled the calories of what I ate to 300 while adding some good protein, but I was too lazy to slice tofu.

Anyway, it just went so well, I wanted to share it. The recipe, that is. The soup is gone, sorry.

Getting into a groove with Vera, my 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser project/daily driver.  This is the first time the passenger window's rolled up on its own since I bought it.  Of three non-functional windows, I've now fixed two and ready to figure out what's wrong with #3!

Resharing an old shot.  Thinking a lot about subject/backgroud interaction in shots.  I think it's the color that makes this work - the similar hues in the background to the subject.  

Reminds me of a concept I learned in Alan Flusser's /Dressing the Man/ (I know, I know, nobody who knows me would guess I knew anything about fashion - just goes to show that knowing and doing are not the same.  But I digress...)  

Flusser writes about "permanent fashion" and how there are certain categories that men should learn and employ in their clothing choices.  One is contrast.  A person's contrast is defined by the difference in tone between hair and skin.   I'm high-contrast, with dark hair and fairly light skin.  KC here, is medium to low contrast.

Under the gun.

Get the flow going again, rejoin the conversation, inspire myself to get shooting some more and turn this backlog of ideas into images.

One of Annie Leibovitz' elaborate portrait shots. This particular one featuring Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen shows that she isn't dubbed the best in that field for nothing.

Random - anyone know a local source for seat belt webbing

I'm looking for 1-5 yds of 2" (can be 1-7/8" actual width).  Preferably grey, but black is OK.  Needs to be the soft stuff, and full strength - used OK, but not damaged, frayed or otherwise compromised.

I feel like an ADD geek - call me a serial obsessive, too many interesting things, not enough time.  A liberal arts guy with technical curiosity and language ability (I'm fluent in over 69 billion forms of engineering jibberish) - for a living I talk to the customers so the engineers don't have to.  No, really.  

I'm an Ingresser and amateur Android tinkerer, occasional grammar Nazi, avid reader, musician, foodie, budding maker, portrait photographer, and Firefly fanboy who's slowly learning to fix anything that breaks starting with the 1981 Suzuki (that I referred to as The Falcon) that's gotten me to work and anyplace else I needed to go for the last 6 years.  So, yes I dream of one day being able to truthfully say - "Machines just got workins' and they talk to me."  

I can also get wordy.

When I stopped paying attention, Miley Cyrus was playing a character named Miley Stuart. TV Miley's former-country-western-star TV dad was played by real Miley's former-country-western-star Dad. The premise of the Hannah Montana show was that TV Miley secretly played the role of Hannah Montana (pop star) so that TV Miley could have a normal life. Course, while she was a fabrication on the TV show, Hannah Montana (a fictional character played by a fictional character) put on real concerts in the real world that you or I could have (but hopefully didn’t) buy tickets for. 

With that in mind, is anyone surprised that she still has no idea who she actually is?

Josh Russo here, professional cat-herder and hobby photographer who (like many, apparently) would love to turn it into a side job.

Maybe not the best intro shot, but this is what's turned into a draft for an idea to do a Downton Abbey styled shoot.  Costume fun aside, I've really been inspired by the show's amazing use of light and color.

In real life, this was actually a "cousins" shoot (not an entirely un-Downton-y theme) as a surprise for my sister-in-law whose oldest was headed off to college.

OK, my friend +Lenny Hirsh (who's not so much on G+ yet) is a rising star in the country music world (and a terrific guy, to boot, despite his being too busy touring to have much on his G+ profile).  And with his new joint "Mess with Texas" he's poised to get to the next level in a big country songwriting contest.  I mean, it's close - he needs to be in the top seven and he's sitting at about #5 with one day to go.

So if like country music (or just want to give my friend a boost), head on over here and cast your vote!  Go Lenny!
