Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016CC G+

Dave Morrow362,451Inspirational Photographers CircleFor me having a bunch of small circles that I can browse through daily is a much more enjoyable experience than looking through a circle of 500 or so ppl.

André Distel4,019The People I FollowSo, here it is - my first circle share. I have a lot more people in my circles than I actually follow. With limited time and other social networking sites, I figure, I can only follow so many on a regular basis. The people in this circle are all top photographers and highly active on Google+ or simply interesting people.Don't worry if you are not in there. I have had probably not enough time to look at your stream in more detail with all the people I already follow. Just comment and let me know you are out there :). I always appreciate if people share circles with me in them, so I thought I might do that as well.Cheers,Andréwww.andredistel.com 2012-11-06 19:30:09213508CC G+

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/about2012-10-07 11:33:523291048CC G+

Brett Sivits2,001#shareyourcircles  I have only been on Google+ for a few months but have enjoyed it thoroughly.  I have been thinking about sharing a circle but I have resisted the hubris of pretending to know what I am talking about.  I have chosen to share a circle of Northwest Photographers (US).  These are my neighbors and I have loved watching them photograph so beautifully the people and places that someday I hope to be able photograph with even a tenth of their artistry and skill.All that being said it made me think we should all be sharing a circle once and a while. #Shareyourcircles  is your opportunity to share any of your circles great or small.  My version of #FF   in twitter speak.  I would love to see your boutique circles.  I may not be interested in Tibetan Macro Photographers but I don’t know that until I look at your circle.  Include yourself or don’t it’s just a wonderful way to tell someone that you enjoy their work enough to tell their friends about it.This is a small circle and clearly it isn’t exhaustive.   If you are a photographer or know one that I should add please let me know.  BTW if you are in the share and don’t live in the Northwest (Oregon, Washington, BC (Canada) or Alaska I am sorry but I guess I am enjoying your work anyway because you are still in the circle albeit in the wrong context. Happy Sharing 2012-09-26 13:49:37154813CC G+

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+

Soft Winter
 I just returned from a great camping trip in the Swiss Alps.  It's an amazing place any time of year, but covered in snow it is just stunning.   Getting to spend a big part of the trip in a tent high in the mountains without seeing another soul made it even better.  I camped at Stellisee Lake for three days waiting for this shot.  The morning it was taken the light was very special.  Everything just came together.

Hi All,  Sorry for my lack of time on G+ lately.  This shot was taken a few days ago while leading a private workshop to Iceland.   The Northern Lights went crazy for us and this is one of my new favorite shots.   Incredible country!!

An incredible ray of light on the last night of a five day workshop I was leading in the Tetons.   I am not sure who was more excited and having more fun, me or my participants.  Nothing like the teacher running around yelling trying to make sure everyone was capturing this insane light, hitting the button on my own camera as I ran past:)

COLBY'S PHOTOGRAPHIC CIRCLE OF 500 INSPIRING PHOTOGRAPHERS

This is an update to the 1st circle of inspiring photographers that I shared earlier this year. I have removed a few individuals that no longer were active on the network and added a few new faces. Nearly every genre of photography is represented here. These are individuals that are constantly providing photography work that speaks to me. They are hand picked and all active on G+ (last I checked). It includes full time professionals and amateurs alike...and all that create compelling photography.  Please enjoy...I know I have!

If you like what you find in this circle, consider sharing it with your followers to help these individuals reach a wider audience.I am already working on my 2nd share of Inspirational photographers on Google+. More to come in the coming weeks.

Here is a link to a follow up postof ... more »

Ice bergs from the the Vatnajokull glacier wash up on the black sand beach opposite the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon in southern Iceland.

This area in Iceland was probably the highlight of my 2+ week trip. The ice bergs would float in the lagoon, (loudly with splashes and ripples) break apart into smaller chunks and then get washed out to the ocean via a small channel when the tides changed (sometimes they would move slowly to the ocean and sometimes very quickly). Eventually they would be break apart a few hundred feet from the shore and wash up on the beach in smaller ephemeral chunks that would melt away within a few hours.

Happiness has to do with reason, and only reason earns it. What I was given was the thing you can't earn, and can't keep, and often don't even recognize at the time; I mean Joy.

Fire in the Valley

An incredible evening while shooting with student turned friend Mark Brodkin in Arizona. I spent a long, long time before this light show started looking for the perfect composition, and then waited for the clouds to get into position. After a few minutes they started to light up and I was fairly certain had something I would love. Check out Mark standing in the very center of the frame.

Shine Through!

This was one of those situations where I almost called the game due to rain. It was 100% cloudy, raining and I felt my chances of getting an image were 0. I deceided to wait it out, and just at the last minute the clouds broke at the horizon and let the sun shine through the peaks.

"A Tale of Near Death in Tibet" Car + Cliff + Ice = Scary as Hell!!

For #damnneardiedthursday !!! Share your stories, long, short, scary, funny, adventurous or stupid!!!

The story below may just be scariest thing that has ever happened to me while traveling. I have been robbed at gun point twice, was almost thrown in jail in Syria, spent several crazy days in Iraq during the height of the conflict there, slept on the street most nights while hitchhiking through Europe and the Middle East, amongst other things and this was by far the closest I felt I have come to dying.

"A tale of near death in Tibet"

The mountainous area of western Tibet is a rarely explored mix of dizzying heights, culture, religion and often tragedy for those who choose to explore its upper reaches. For a landscape photographer it is heaven. Peaks reaching to over... more »

"What Almost Killed You!?!?

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to create a place to share stories of dangerous, daring and flat out stupid adventures in Photography! This is it! Let me know if you have any ideas or thoughts to make this better. I am stilling leaning what I'm doing with this as well, so let me know about any mistakes.

We have all been there......hanging over the edge of the cliff to get the angle just right. Camera in one hand, minuscule branch in the other. Left foot in the air for balance. Significant other screaming somewhere in the background. But talk about great light!

The Rules are Simple:

Share images and short stories about that time when you almost "kicked the bucket" (or were at least kinda scared) while in hot pursuit of an image.

Use #DamnNearDiedThursday in your post.

Delicate Sky

#photoextractplus

My girlfriend and I hiked in to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park a while back for this shot. It was really incredible being there at night.

I lit this with a small flashlight for about a minute. 20 min exposure F 6.3 ISO 640

"Eruption Under the Stars"

Photographing Mt. Bromo erupting at night was an incredible experience. The trip up to the look-out point was fun in itself, but seeing this shot on the LCD after a one minute exposure at 2.8 when I all I could see was a blanket of darkness in reality was amazing!

COLBY'S PHOTOGRAPHIC CIRCLE OF INSPIRATION

I have finally put together my 1st circle of photographers that I personally find inspiring. Nearly every genre of photography is represented here. These are individuals that are constantly providing photography work that speaks to me. They are hand picked and all active on G+. It includes full time professionals and amatures alike...all that create compelling photography. Everyone in this circle has less then 30k followers (although a few are very very close) and many have just a few hundred. Please enjoy...I know I have!

If you like what you find in this circle, please share it with your followers to help these individuals reach a wider audience. I will share more circles of those I find Inspiring in the future.

TETONS RISING!

In an extreme effort to capture the Grand Tetons in a different way (and because it was so foggy in Jackson we couldn't even see the Tetons), my friend Joe Roybal and I deiced to go above the clouds and look back down. It took optimism to believe such a vantage point even existed, lots of convince store crackers and good snowshoes, but we made it happen. It was -23 degrees.

Sorry for not being around on G+ lately. It has been a crazy month and I have been out of town for a couple weeks. After snowshoeing in the Tetons I flew directly to New Orleans to speak at a trade show for Zenfolio and I just got home.

A big thanks to BorrowLenses.com, who helped me out in a big way last minute with some gear for this trip! They are really in the photographers corner.

The Shape of the Wind / Photography Tip

Know what you are looking for and go after it!!!!

One of the most important elements in photography is to know what you want to show or "say" in your photograph. At the Great Sand Dunes a few weeks ago I knew exactly what I wanted. Strong curving lines. Clean simple composition. The form of the dunes. Next step. Go find what you want! When the light started to become more and more brilliant I had the urge to stop many times to take a picture but the elements were not all there. I knew that if continued to look for the exact conditions I wanted, I had a decent chance of finding them.

This is basically how I go about shooting in general even on a global scale. What areas not only inspire me, but have the elements that I am looking for? When I choose an area and visit, I then ask the same question at a... more »

I was very inspired this morning reading +Mike Shaw's post from a while back and so I have decided to share a portrait of mine from a recent trip to Indonesia. Check out Mike's post, it is really worth the read and something I also feel very strongly about. https://plus.google.com/102518365620075109973/posts/aXTFNfngwUH

I had lunch today with fellow Colorado photographer and friend +Colby Brown (you've probably never heard of him). Great guy and great photographer! He incourged me to get a G+ account months ago and he is the reason I am on here now. I am extremely glad he did. Great community, and great place to be inspired!

Purely Landscape V 1.0

Landscape photography is what I do. It's what I love and it is my passion. I have the beginning of what I feel are some of the best Landscape photographers on Google+.

I want to purify my circles and everyone has a place, it's a matter of which one everyone belongs in. This is the new beginning, it will grow but it will be done selectively and with intent.

What is the criteria?

- Approximately 95%+ of your images are Landscape photography (yes I include Seascape)
- Your posts consist of primarily landscape or related topic
- Nature is your passion


Now I know I have missed a few of you and this will be seen to in future versions as the circle is updated. I may need my memory updated ;-)

Is landscape photography your passion?

Please share to your circles.

Wow!!! Really going to have give this some thought......Talk about crazy high ISO!!! The D800 will be 36MP, which is great for landscapes but this thing will be incredible in low light.

It is really quite incredible how much time we spend looking for a mere instant of magic.

What an indescribable feeling when we find it.

Share Sunday
Earlier this week, I started a thread about what I missed from Twitter. (you can find it here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/112022983294967948367/posts/VRJMksfTMSD)

Basically, while I like the entire organization or metaphor for organization of circles, I still miss the #FF on Twitter each week.

So, I decided I would create a circle that I call Share Sunday. In that circle, I would collect the people that I have:

- Enjoyed interacting with
- Who's work or posts I enjoy
- Who I look forward to hearing from
- Who helps build the G+ Community

Each week, I decided I would share that list. Why a list..? as opposed to a circle..??

Well, one of the things I dislike about circles, is that when you add them all, you have some clean-up work to do. And if you get one with 500 in it, going through all of them prior to... more »

Colorado Storm

This was seriously one of the coolest skies I have ever seen. I almost killed myself trying to get over the very new, very wet barbed wire fence that separated me from putting this tree in front of it.

"Erupt!" Mt. Bromo, E. Java, Indonesia

To capture a moment in time when all the elements come together in perfect harmony is an amazing feeling. I had to be out of bed at 3:45am for a week straight to finally find these conditions, and I feel very, very lucky that I saw them at all. Even when Bromo is active, it can go for hours without erupting, and then it can go for days, erupting so often that visibility is zero. When I arrived in the area I never imagined I would get an image with Bromo erupting right at the peak of the morning light in perfectly clear conditions, with fog in the valley below. Out of the seven days we were in the area this was the only morning the fog rolled in.
