Anna Lowry30,223St. Patrick's Day DC Photo Walk!Okay guys, here's the plan! +David Buckwalter will be leading the way. Don't worry, he will be hard to miss. I hear he is going to wear a skirt kilt. ;-) Okay, since it seems that there's a couple people in favor and nobody opposed, we'll make that the plan.  We'll officially start at 2PM at the National Botanical Garden (In front of the capitol at the SE corner of the Mall) on the benches out front, and start walking at 3 PM.  Anyone who cares to show up early to shoot at the garden is welcome.  I'll call tomorrow morning and request a group tripod permit, and make another post with the details of that.We can decide on the specific route of the walk on Saturday, depending whether everyone feels more strongly about the stereotypical sites or the "real" DC.  We can also add a slight detour through Union Station.We'll end up at Rumors and/or any of the other beverage-providing establishments around the 19th and M corner and carry on the shenanigans until last call / whenever.CC: +Christa Laser +Lynne Goodwin +Sheighla Friel +Jennifer Eden  +Al Ebnereza +Julian Ortiz +Messay Shoakena +Corrie Davidson +Juan Gonzalez St. Patrick's Day DC Photo Walk/Drink and Click2013-03-16 19:00:0061G+

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. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813311CC G+

Stephanie Calahan943FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 3 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1384 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.* When creating circles, you can only add 500 people a day (new) and that includes moving people around in existing circles.HOWEVER there have been2013-05-17 16:21:40353371128CC G+

Gailen Mapes23,134Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera A-C - 1 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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 #circleoftheday2013-02-01 11:52:01372716CC 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.

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 +Nichole McCall 21754423 +Dane Clingan 21718424 +Xavier Ruiz Canadell 21700425 +Emi Fujimoto 21697422013-01-07 15:33:25500221350CC G+

Scott Detweiler24,685Here is my top circle for portrait inspiration.  If you are into portraits and need a muse or two, this circle is full of creativity and the stream is a pleasure to watch.There are a few non-portrait people that get my wheels turning, but for the most part these are people photographers.  Creativity in lighting and post production is a key element here and you will find these people to be mentors in those areas.This is my top circle, and if you feel you know someone that should be part of it, please nominate and share this out.If you are in this circle it would be appreciated (but it isn't mandatory) if you would share it out to help portraits be a bigger part of G+.  I am not a fan of making people share to be part of something.  You are my muses and motivators and I learn more about myself as I explore and learn from your works.2012-11-15 00:54:3110126729CC G+

Chris Mallory16,845G+ Survivor Follow-up: One Week LaterAKA, the circle share that is sure to piss everybody offOne week ago yesterday I thought up the idea of "G+ Survivor" - a "game" in which I put all my followers - all 1350 of them - into one circle, and then removed them one by one based on their content (OP: http://goo.gl/wXEiG). The goal was to help me discover new people I had buried in my circles that posted interesting, engaging content. At first it was easy, but as time went on it got considerably harder to eliminate people. Over the past week I've reviewed the posts of over a thousand people, and have come up with, somehow, the top hundred.Before getting into the circle itself, I must say that I learned more about myself in this process than I did about the people in my stream. I learned just what kind of content I found interesting. People that know me know that I am a lover of insects and insect photos, but I eliminated tons of people that post exclusively insect photos and few remain in this circle. Why? Because a photo alone is not engaging. Tell me something about the subject, propose a question, teach me something, share an opinion, get people thinking - these were the things that engaged me the most. Of the hundred people remaining, less than half of them are photographers.It also needs to be said that just because you are not in this circle it does not mean that I don't find your content interesting. Conversely, just because you are in this circle it doesn't mean that your content is interesting. I'm rather surprised, actually, some of the people that made it into this circle while others did not.Another reason you may not be in this circle is if you had any major period of inactivity over the past week. Every night I removed about 30 people simply from inactivity - it doesn't mean that your content was not interesting, just that I wish that you posted more of it.As an aside - if I were playing along, I would have eliminated myself ages ago. I know how (un)interesting I am ;) So I am (obviously) not in this circle.So, for the circle itself! 54 men and 46 women remain in the game. Photography and science are major themes of the remaining members, though neither of those genres holds a majority and there are a handful of remaining players who are involved in neither. Some of you may have remember two weeks ago I posted a circle containing "40 interesting people" (http://goo.gl/xHLwy) - but interestingly, only 20 of those people still remain in this contest. Additionally, I don't even know most of the people in this circle, and 20 people still in the game don't even have me in their circles. It is VERY possible that the winner of this game will have no idea who I am.So, enjoy. 100 interesting people. The game will keep going until 1 remains. Now's the time to bet on a winner ;)2012-10-02 04:23:391004508CC G+

Jeff Sullivan619,563Flickr Photographers on Google+Here's an update to the circle I started last month, including people who asked to be in it in response to my post, the share by +Thomas Hawk, or the recent thread started by +Sly Vegas.  I know, some of you are probably wondering, "Why form a Flickr circle on G+?"   Well, I'm here to discuss and get inspired by photography, and discovering the users of other photography sites who are also here on G+ is a great way to do that.  Besides, if we all connect more effectively over here on G+, that reduces our need to spend time on multiple networks simply to connect with our friends who are holdouts (I'm still trying to get a few die-hard Flickr friends over).  I knew a lot of good folks there, and they're still good folks here (and I have new tools like events, hangouts, chat to connect with them, and photowalks to join them on).Anyone else want to join us, and be in future updates to this photographers' circle?2012-09-28 00:20:07167382150CC G+

I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.  Most theme pages share some of the best work.  A few share all submissions.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.  ────────A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Photography Themes +Daily Fine Art Themes.  If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page. Because of2012-08-29 13:45:173048995110CC G+

Women Wednesday Update - PLEASE READ and SHARE

Due to much blessing, the artistic lives of +Athena Carey, +Lee Daniels, +Christina Lawrie and +Kerry Murphy are booming. That being said, with heavy hearts they will no longer be able to co-curate the +Women Wednesday theme due to time contraints and other commitments. Beginning next week, please do not tag them in #womenwednesday  posts. 

I will be co-curating with +Scott Detweiler. Feel free to tag me, +Niki Aguirre and/or him each Wednesday if you want us to check out your photo, but no pressure to do so otherwise!

Cheers! 

PS: This information has been updated in +Daily Photography Themes. If there are other lists that you find incorrect, I'd appreciate any help in correcting them. Thanks!

I want to be there.

Sildpollnes, Lofoten

Sildpollnes is one of the first places you`ll pass when you enter the Lofoten Islands. There is nothing grand about it, except there is a beautiful white Church located here, and it also has a great view towards some of the most amazing and dramatic peaks in Lofoten.

Here i am looking towards the Trollfjordmassif, with Geitgaljen and Higravtinden visible in the shot. These peaks are simply amazing...

If you want to explore Northern Norway and the legendary #Lofoten Archipelagos in particular, please check out www.lofotentours.com - New tours are available for booking. Tourguides are +Stian Klo   and yours truly. The dates are as follows:

14.09.2014 - 22.09.2014 - Ultimate Lofoten Experience (only a few spots left)
01.02.2015 - 08.02.2015 - Stetind & Lofoten Adventure
22.02.2015 - 01.03.2015 - Chasing The Light

An Illusion of Perfection

Everyone of us is striving for that balance in our lives. Chasing after a fleeting perfection and making ourselves miserable in the process at times. Learn to let go. Let the puzzle pieces fall where they may. I've been a recovering perfectionist for about two years now. I still care about things and strive to do good work but I don't allow them to enslave me like they have in the past. Such "things" and "stuff" aren't my identify. It's so incredibly freeing once you un-yolk yourself. Love life, enjoy it, do the best you can and be filled with thanksgiving for each breath. Have a wonderful and blessed week my friends!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause.

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Who can get published? Anyone! We hope to get as many submissions as possible. Due to the volume, we can’t publish them all, but we will publish as many as we can. 

Is there a theme this year? Yes, there is. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World” and the book will be split into three sections - “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”. You can interpret it however you’d like - we’d love to see how you express these. 

Do we accept color or B&W images? Either one is great.

How can you submit the work? Here are simple instructions: 

1 - Download and fill out image release form from here - http://goo.gl/brpX6n (you can even scan it using your phone, or use apps such as SignNow or TurboScan)
2 - Fill out the information about yourself and upload your work here - http://form.jotform.us/form/40565430045144
3 - Upload your submission to Google+, and tag it with #PlusOneCollectionIII tag 

Can you submit more than one image? Sure! You can submit first image for free. To submit three images to all three themes, or even three images to one theme (which increases your chances to get published), please make a small donation of $20 to our charitable cause (again, all of that will be donated with the book proceeds). Here’s the link to donate via PayPal - http://goo.gl/OSwT9k

Will you showcase all the submissions? Yes. All submissions will show up in the SmugMug gallery we will setup in the next day or two. Please allow 48 hours for your photo to appear there.

Close-up cropped zoom of the latest image I've been working on this week. I'd love to share it by Friday. This image is really challenging me creatively. I feel like going multiple directions with it, yet my instinctive path may be a bit much, haha. We'll see how this one pans out. It is still teasing me with it's mystery ending.

A New Creation 

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."

Second image of a short series. I will hopefully share the third one next week. 

I'm going to update my costumes and wardrobe this season so this dress needs a new home.

The First Love

Yeah! I'm so excited to share my first image for the year. I shot this past week with my lovely friend in the freezing cold. It was created at the end of a shoot I did that was totally unrelated, the image being completely improv-ed and in the moment. This image may mark the beginning of a short series. We'll see!

Today being Valentine's Day I felt it was a good time to share. May you have a wonderful and beautiful day full of love! Let it be a reminder to us all to always love on our friends and family! Valentine's should be everyday of the year! I hope it is filled with blessings all around, both received and given!

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God."

Close up zoom of an image I'm currently working on... actually my first image for 2014.  Can't wait to share it when it's done. I'll have a lot of time to edit considering there is a snow storm coming in.... to all of you who live in the area, stay warm!!!

A new image... it's been a while. 

Went through a six month photography hibernation, then when I came back to things I resumed commissioned stuffs. I finished my last edits yesterday for that and am free as a bird now. I can't wait to get back to personal work! :)

In Light of a Perfect Day

Shot this with model Nicole Cunico in Maryland. I love shooting at this location and definitely need to go back and work with her again. I was going for a split field diopter effect between my character and the castle - something new and experimental in my work. :)

Beautiful creation by +Ian Ference 

In Country Sleep
for +Niki Aguirre's #WomenWednesday  

I just got back from the better part of a week on the road with Rayne Tupelo, an amazing model and an amazing woman.  We covered nearly 1,000 miles, jaunting about the Northeast to various abandoned locations, and Rayne proved to be an exceptional model who would lay in/climb upon/balance on anything to get a shot, a wonderful companion on the long drives, and generally a blast to hang around with.  This is one of the first photos we worked on together, taken during the last strains of the Blue Hour before the sky lit up golden.  It reminds me of Dylan Thomas's "In Country Sleep", in particular the last stanza:

Naked and forsaken to grieve he will not come.
Ever and ever by all your vows believe and fear
My dear this night he comes and night without end my dear
Since you were born:
And you shall wake, from country sleep, this dawn and each first dawn,
Your faith as deathless as the outcry of the ruled sun.

so I will also submit it to #inspiredbyliterature  from +Susan Marinello.

And photographers - if you're looking for an outstanding model with a wonderful personality for an upcoming project, consider Rayne - she's amazing.  Her site is: raynetupelo.com___Beautiful creation by +Ian Ference

In Mind

Sorry for all the posts. Truth is, I've been on a photography break for nearly 6 months. I finally have the desire again and have decided to finish out pending images from 2012 as a "warm up". 

Hope everyone is well!!

PS: I've noticed my images look SUPER bright here on G+ but not on other networks :/ Ugh I hate when images look different across screens/sites. Makes me nervous of what I think they should look like but don't. Great.

Women Wednesday Update - PLEASE READ and SHARE

Due to much blessing, the artistic lives of +Athena Carey, +Lee Daniels, +Christina Lawrie and +Kerry Murphy are booming. That being said, with heavy hearts they will no longer be able to co-curate the +Women Wednesday theme due to time contraints and other commitments. Beginning next week, please do not tag them in #womenwednesday  posts. 

I will be co-curating with +Scott Detweiler. Feel free to tag me, +Niki Aguirre and/or him each Wednesday if you want us to check out your photo, but no pressure to do so otherwise!

Cheers!

Okay kids... brace yourself. I know it's two months away, but it will give you plenty of time to plan accordingly and to spread the word. +Drink and Click™ D.C. will be hosting the St. Patrick's Day DC Photo Walk! 

There isn't much available as far as what is going on that weekend in DC yet, so I'm going to hold off on picking a starting place until some local events get published. So... stay tuned!

Just finished making my submission for the +Plus One Collection this year! I submitted what I believe to be my best image of the year 2012, my photo "Twisted". 

This was shot on our family ranch in San Antonio, Texas during the summer. The model is my cousin Autumn. Her and her family still live on the property. There is a lot of history there, including a few ghost stories, eep! ;)

I also created a tutorial and composite breakdown of this image on my blog: http://bit.ly/QC0rtw

Yeah!!! 

ANNOUNCING PLUS ONE COLLECTION 2012 + Image Submission + Fundraising Campaign

Alright, let's do this thing! The publication of Plus One Collection 2012 is officially under way. Read on for details, watch the video, re-share it, and get on the train before it's too late. 

Who can contribute a photograph for the book? 

Anyone. Send us your best image you took in 2012 and it'll get published in one or in all forms - in print, in ebook, and in our online gallery. 

What's the theme?

Same as last year - your best photograph you made in the year just ended, 2012. 

How else can I help?

Re-share this post with your circles. Invite friends and family to participate. This is a photography community publication, and we want as many submissions as we can get. Everyone should hear about this. Remember to tag your posts with #PlusOneCollection2012

When is the deadline?

Image submission is open from now until January 16, 11:59pm California time. In other words, don't wait and send us your work today. 

How do I submit my photograph? 

All details and submission form is here - http://plusonecollection.com/submit/

Will we be able to see what's being submitted?

Yes. Once submissions start coming in, I will setup a +SmugMug gallery where you can see all that's being sent to us and you'll be able to find your image too. 

How will the book get published?

The book will be printed and bound professionally through Oddi in Iceland. They're known for working with photographers and for their great quality of printing.

How can we afford a print run?

To afford the cost of publication, we launched a crowdsourcing campaign through Indiegogo ("Kickstarter" that allows charitable causes). There are all levels of contribution there, so take a look - http://igg.me/p/305566/x/2020311

How do I pre-order a copy?

Just like last year, for limited time only, you can order Limited Edition of the book that will ship numbered, signed, and with a fine art print. The only way to order it this year is through Indiegogo campaign that will run through January. These copies will ship first and before book officially goes on sale. So again, don't wait and chip in today!

When will the book ship? 

We're shooting for the same time frame as last year - so sometime in early spring. 

What cause are we supporting this year?

We are very proud to have teamed up with the Kilgoris Project. In short, we will use any proceeds from the sale of the book and buy digital cameras for underpriveledged children in the school in Kenya. But it's a much bigger project than that. Please watch the video!

Who made this video?

We proud to be still working on +Andy Lee who made this video is our chief designer for everything pixel related. 

Ivan, why are you not smiling in the video?

I'm Russian. We never do. But I'm always smiling inside. 

Kmm. I still want to help.

2013 Creative Pay-It-Forward
(and to celebrate a great year of positivity):­ The first five people to comment on this status will receive from me, sometime in the next calendar year, a gift - perhaps a book, baked goods, a photo, a drawing, a painting or music, or a surprise!

There will likely be no warning and it will happen whenever the mood strikes me. The catch? Those five people must make the same offer in their Google Plus status. Who's in?

No. 5 La Señora de las Flores

I couldn't sleep last night and spent all that time with this girl, the lady of roses. It is inspired by my late grandmother, my Mami, Candita Santiago. It is also a dress design crossed between two styles I have in mind for the wardrobe in my new series beginning in 2013, La La Land. 

It is going to be a a visual storybook to be inspired by folklore, fairy tales, my faith, family history and other things that my dreams and life are made of.

I'm going to spend January in pre-production mode for the series. There is a lot to get together, including the creation of the wardrobe which my mother is doing the majority of. I can't wait to share BTS of that in about a week or two!! :D

So much to do, my brain is just firing with ideas...

The button shows the number of followers you have directly in a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
