Gene Bowker66,115 The   #Alphabetcircles   Gene's Active Photographers on G+ Part Two: First Name D-GMeet 250+ more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names betweenD and G.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notNot in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.Feel free to reshare with your friends if you want, but there are NO requirements to be in this circle except for the criteria above.I'm slowly going through the rest of the Alphabet and as I complete each section I'll be sharing them in this series.  If you follow along you can easily add 1000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images Part One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBz2014-03-12 11:15:49268881774CC G+

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream.

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 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 and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. 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/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*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.2013-09-05 16:07:314714531110CC G+

Curating Content on Google+0The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!  A lot of new people from great participation last week!!Quick start instructions:➀ post a URL link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂ publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)➃ add this circle, and refresh it every week.You will get a comment from us with a ☑ and be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!  Questions?  Ask in comments below - you'll get help!Full story: This circle is for meeting engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens mainly in the comments, but of course re-shares too.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!This will be done every Thursday, starting fresh again.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one! Biggest Ripple last week: +Jürgen Keil with 5!  The runner up was +J.B. Churchill with 4.  Nice work to those that helped them!  The average share-chain (ripple) for the whole group was 2.52...  pretty good!!Top Influencers last week: +Sara Schiavi +Kenneth Scott +Trever McGhee and +Jürgen Keil.  Special thanks to you too! #publiccirclesproject #photography #sharedcircles #weeklythemecircles #sharingiscaring #greatp2013-03-07 15:52:124672556487CC 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 23:33:1450013641100CC G+
Margaret Tompkins43,985>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 50,000 FollowersThis is a very special circle.  I’ve not shared it before but I have shared the people in it.  I call it the Graduates Circle.  These are the fine people that I shared with you when they had < 25,000 followers but now they have more – they’ve graduated!  These are the people who are top photographers, very interactive, and are the heart and soul of G+.  I ask each of them to identify those people who inspire them, form a circle and share it.The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have between 25,000 and 50,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle. I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles   2013-02-16 21:06:161261232987CC G+

Ian Herndon8,223Shared Circle Time! - G+ Community Moderators (4 of x)Re-Share to help moderators easily connect with one another!Now that Google has launched Communities there has been a ton of activity by people to create communities relating to their interests, join ones created by others, and meet other creators in an effort to learn more and more new ways to build and contribute to G+ Communities. +Community Moderators is an example of a page/community dedicated specifically to having a single place where all moderators can join in discussion around just that.I have been hard at work creating Circles that consist of Community Moderators and Owners only. My hope is to be able to help others expand their network of friends to also include like minded people dabbling in the Community space too. In the near future I intend to eventually group these moderator circles into smaller more targeted ones tailored to specific interests. So with that said, here's our circles!G+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (1 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/ETe6deLAMq2G+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (2 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/7i2DXeQpknnG+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (3 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/j1rsi9YGGVgG+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (4 of x) - 1/12/2013https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/VFUjZcifXPQ#Community   #Moderators   #Owners   #Communities   #Circle   #SharedCircles   #CircleShare2013-01-12 15:28:345005210CC 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+. Bloggers and people doing mostly reshares weren't included. Some big name photographers that don't share a lot of their own work were included - sorry for the double standard. Here is the 6th and last part  of my list of the top 500 most followed photographers - Here are links to the previous parts of the list.Group 1: http://tinyurl.com/cf58vws - 1 to 100Group 2: http://tinyurl.com/bodaspk - 101 to 193Group 3: http://tinyurl.com/bsb87u4 - 194 to 250 and circleGroup 4: http://tinyurl.com/d4ulv6q  - 250 to 340Group 5: http://tinyurl.com/cjpmgy4 - 341 to 420 Group 6: 421 to 500 and circle of 500 (this post)If you are on this list, I urge you to comment, plus and share the post. I have sifted through lots of pages and circles as well as http://circlecount.com/  to try to get an accurate list. If I'm missing anyone, please let me know.  I have specifically left off a few people who only share links to their content housed elsewhere,  people who share a lot of other people's work without sharing their own, or people that appear to be inactive. The rank numbers are off by 1 because I included the same person twice in an earlier list.#Top500CircleDec   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  420 +Jennifer Luzio 21797421 +Matt Suess 21794422 +2013-01-07 15:33:25500221451CC G+

They DELETED their G+ Account ! ! WHAAA?! (and never returned)2. They DELETED their G+ Account or was BANNED or maybe put it on HOLD and I uncircled them to make room for new people as I am at the 5K Limit.3. They did some kind of combination of all that and changed their own G+ name so many times that they got uncircled at some point most likely by accident.4. They BLOCKED me which seems weird, why would someone do that?(Some people included in these circles had uncircled me at some point I think but still are relevant, despite their strange nature, according to Google at least)5.

To the best of my ability everyone in this circles has personally hungout with me... and it was fun.. :)This circle is where I have made the most lasting connections on G+.... Meeting many of these people in real life since I met them in hangouts. I joined G+ Jun 29th, 2011. I hung out then and pretty much most days since. I was voted Google+ Hangout Queen this year :)I've seen amazing things in hangouts, Tours of far away countries, cooking classes, airplane trips, photowalks, concerts, language lessons, trivia nights, relationship advice, seeing famous landmarks, attending behind the scenes of tv shows, hangouts with famous celebrities, and countless late night and early morning hangouts with fabulous normal people from all parts of the world and right next door...

There are quite a few who don't follow me but whose work I've discovered.Note: No one asked, begged, or had to do anything to be in these circles except be an active G+ photographer who I happen to follow.That being said, why share circles you are included in?It will help you be seen by different folks. It is amazing when I see how few people I follow in common with even my closest friends and I follow around 2500 people. There are so many good photographers on G+ that it is impossible to find them all.  Shares help make those introductions."D"elighted to know you+Gene Bowker http://rustedrailimages.comWould you like to be in the next circle set?1) Be sure to circle me.2) Be active. Post regularly...3) Be interactive. Respond to comments, etc...4) Be yourself. Post your own stuff, not just reshares.5) Be sure to introduce yourself. Stop by one of my posts and say hi.6) Feel free to share the current circles. (not required but really appreciated)In the end, I make the final calls on who gets in or not based on my own judgement. That is why I'm happy to put my name on them.2012-09-25 22:39:58167682153CC G+
P E Sharpe28,871The Backbone Of My G+ HangOut CommunityIt's the anniversary month for Hang Outs On Air, so what better way to celebrate what hangouts have meant to me than to share a circle of the folks I deem hangout-worthy? ;^)These are the people who make MY hangouts happen, whether they are Googlealiens who have supported the hang out environment or the everyday G+ folks with whom I have had regular, ongoing conversations over the past year.The circle comprises people who kicked everything up a notch for me on G+, and who are largely responsible for building the community that surrounds me. They are, for the most part, the people who have shared circles that included me, who have given me a shoulder to lean on when the going gets tough, who have shown me different ways of thinking, who have given of themselves so freely and allowed me to be part of their worlds too.Thanks to you all for making my G+ feel like home. +Shared Circles on G+ +CircleCount +The Best Circles on Google+ +Public Circles 2012-09-20 19:12:5210155236CC G+

Thanks +Google+ Photos for the goodies!

A couple weeks ago my Salute to the Sunflower photo was selected to be +Google+ Photos Cover Photo of the Week. A truly great honor!

As a bonus of being selected you get a really nice Google+ Photos t-shirt and camera strap as well as some cool stickers. I'm pretty impressed by the quality of the shirt and strap.

The shirt feels really soft and comfortable. I'll probably wear it tomorrow to work. The strap I've already attached to my GX7 and you can see my daughter modelling both here in this shot :)

Thanks again to +Brian Matiash and the +Google+ Photos team for being awesome!

This is the future!  

I love working with +Stocksy United so much.  

What a refreshing breath of air Stocksy is in the world of stock photography.  I'm so glad to be rid of Getty Images and their paltry 20% payouts.  An artist owned coop is such a better model and I hope more and more coops like Stocksy pop up to compete with companies that pay such terribly low rates.  

I'm also happy to see so many of my G+ friends on Stocksy now like +Trey Ratcliff  +Joe Azure +Chris Chabot +helen sotiriadis +Arthur Chang +Tamara Pruessner +Mark Esguerra +Hillary Fox +Alan Shapiro +Dave Veffer +Vivienne Gucwa +Andy Lee +thomas o'brien +Kerry Murphy +Ivan Makarov +Kelli Seeger Kim and lots more.

Photographers deserve so much more than puny 20% payouts.

If you are a buyer of stock photography, consider licensing from Stocksy -- aplace that has some of... more »

Renaissance Radar

We went to the New York Renaissance Faire yesterday and had to park really far away in a secondary parking lot that looks like it may have been an air strip or something many years ago. Right by where we parked is this old dish.

Not sure if it is a radar tower or satellite dish of some sort but it looked really cool. Who knows, maybe someone reading this knows what the story is.

I wanted to give it a Fallout type of feel in the processing.

Sorry for reposting. I forgot to put the last one in my album

Get creative with the new photo editing tools in Google+

Sometimes a photo needs a little extra touch to truly stand out. To help you customize your images, we’re launching new photo editing tools right within Google+. They’re all based on the power of Snapseed, and available in the Chrome browser (thanks to its Native Client technology). Here are a few of the fun things you can do:

* Auto Enhance already makes the photos you add to Google+ look great. Now you can customize and fine tune these adjustments if you have a different look in mind.
* Selective adjust lets you make edits to specific parts of your image, so you can make that summer sky look even more blue without affecting the beach in the foreground.
* Filters like Vintage, Drama, Retrolux or Black and White give your photos a new look. Add the finishing touch with a frame.

Another from Watkins Glen State Park in Watkins Glen, NY. I love how it looks like there is a little galaxy in the water.

Watkins Glen Gorge Falls

Yet another photo of the beautiful waterfalls from the Gorge Trail at Watkins Glen State Park in Watkins Glen, NY.

I almost feel a little funny that I keep posting shots of these falls but they are really all I want to process when I look at my photo library :)

Stigma Dew

Just went outside to shoot a few macros. Didn't even notice the gooey looking moisture on the stigma until I pulled it into Lightroom :)

Check out Copy

I just signed up for this today. Seems like a good Dropbox alternative and they are giving quite a bit more free space than Dropbox.

If you are so inclined, give it a try using the link below and we each get a bonus 5GB :)

Adobe Creative Cloud Fail

I've been having problems with Creative Cloud staying signed in on my computer for a while. I usually have to sign in several times a week when I reboot or whatever. Hasn't been much of a problem and I haven't really had the time to figure it out. Today I had to reboot and then when trying to sign back in it was basically failing. Turns out there is maintenance going on and I can't get my Photoshop working for 2-3 hours. 

I have a huge deadline in 2 hours that I was working on when this happened. Not a happy customer right now +Adobe Photoshop :(

In the meantime I click Start Trial and I guess that'll get me going until the issue is fixed but what about next time since my 30 days trial will be over I'm sure when it happens again.

We needed to do some 360 video footage today so I rigged up a lazy susan, some rubber bands, a screw gun, two adjustable clamps, a roll of tape, and a ladder to do it :)

The screwgun is clamped down to the ladder to hold it in place. The second clamp is on the trigger and controls the speed of the drill. The top of the drill has rubber bands make gripping the lazy susan better.

To activate we lightly squeeze the speed control clamp to get desired speed then slide the ladder closer to the lazy susan to add the appropriate pressure between the rubber bands and the turntable.

Google just demoted your television set into a second screen, a slave to your phone or tablet or laptop. With the $35 Chromecast you can with one click move anything you find on your internet-connected device — YouTube video, Netflix, a web page as well as music and pictures and soon, I’d imagine, games — onto your big TV screen, bypassing your cable box and all its ridiculous and expensive limitations.

Unlike Apple TV and Airplay, this does not stream from your laptop to the TV; this streams directly to your TV — it’s plugged into an HDMI port — over wi-fi via the cloud … er, via Google, that is. Oh, and it works with Apple iOS devices, too.

I’m just beginning to get a grasp on all the implications. Here are some I see.
