Wayne Marinovich26,506Wildlife Photographers CircleWell, it has been over a year since I last shared my wildlife photographers circle. I have recently been through it, and dropped some folks who no longer seems to be posting. Whilst going though all the people, I realise just how many friends I have made in this online world. I look forward to meeting more of you in the flesh someday.Please feel free to share this with your followers (that is how this works after all). If you are not on here and are a keen amateur, semi-pro or seasoned pro, let me know and I will add you.  2014-05-23 08:07:52474938

Zvonimir Fras17,307101 Amazing PhotographersI don't usually share circles of my own......this is a special occasion, since I've gathered 100 photographers who's work I really like.It took me more than a year, and many of them came to my attention when I started managing +Stunning Moment alongside +Alycia Miller.Some of them are extremely popular with millions of followers, and some of them have less than 10 or 100 followers.Some are very active on G+, some are mostly active on other sites.If you're into photography (and you are if you're seeing this post) this is the circle you want to add ;)Feel free to share this with each and every photography-lover you know, they will thank you ;)Please tell me if you think I missed someone! I'm always looking for new talents! :D--I was told to include this hashtags cause people like them :)#sharedcircle   #topsharedcircle   #circlesharing   #circleshare  #circles #sharedpubliccircles     #sharedcircles  #circle #amazing #photographers #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare  2014-01-02 18:33:13101351935

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 14:09:1333813311

Methodology: out of 3200 people that I follow, using +Circloscope I ordered them according to relevance score (calculated by Google depending on whose posts I engage the most) and filtered for a value over 30, then filtered for whether they are active (when was their last post) and finally filtered by whether they were in my "must read" circles. Voila! I hope you find it interesting :) #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  #circlesharing  2013-05-26 09:51:2119713412

David Marx4,263Shared Circle:  The Photographers Whose Posts Consistently Inspire Me Here On Google+I am writing an article tonight on how to find the right connections for photographers new to the Google+ platform.  My article is geared towards those just starting out here.  One of the things that I suggest in the article is that you start out your Google+ experience by immediately killing off the silly "what's hot and recommended" feed.  In place of that nonsense, I recommend that photographer's new to this platform start out their experience here by subscribing to this circle.This circle is a completely biased list.  This is my own personal list of photographers whose style, and whose words, resonate with my tastes everyday.  These is just a small sampling of the Google+ photographers whose posts I religiously follow and whose art, insight, and consistency inspire me.  This is a small sampling of the artists that I see sharing great art here and individuals who I believe exemplify good Google+ etiquette.   Again, this is by no means a definitive list of all the talented artists currently sharing their work on this platform.  This is not meant to be a list of the artists who have the most Google+ followers nor those who have the most industry influence.2013-04-11 05:20:1342116

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 23:33:145001353799

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 January 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 1st.)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 #circleoftheday2013-01-15 11:45:03350114
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+.

Please don't be upset if you were left out or if there are mistakes. It takes a lot of work to compile this and I will publish a new list and circle with corrections.Also please note that precise rankings are meaningless due to the standard error of measurement involved in Klout scores. Many thanks to +CircleCount for making this job considerably easier.I also want to thank +Amanda Blain for all her suggestions over the various months on how to improve this list.As always, I welcome your suggestions and corrections.Please let me know of any corrections for the final list to be published before the end of the year.If I missed you, please let me know. Upcoming circle – please let me know if you want to be included.Active on Google plus and Twitter – provide your twitter id   Social Media MadnessThere are other social networks out there besides Google plus.  While Google Plus is certainly my favourite, there are uses for the other ones.Include your twitter id in the comments to be included in a future circle of twitter users on Google plus.Tweet me @euromaestro to be included on a twitter list of Google plus users. Follow me on :twitter :  https://twitter.com/euromaestrofacebook : 2012-12-16 23:54:20209641039

I have seen plenty of pictures of Keyhole Rock in Big Sur during the daytime, especially during these few weeks of winter when the sun sets in the keyhole, but I have seen very few good pictures of the iconic rock at night. 

To get this shot, I set my camera up on a tripod, engaged the self timer, and ran out to the rocks. I used a LED Lenser P7 flashlight to illuminate the structure, paying special attention to the keyhole itself. In the picture, you can see my silhouette near the keyhole.

I configured my Edgertronic (http://edgertronic.com) high speed camera for field use, today, which means attaching portable power and a portable, battery-powered wireless router. Once the edgertronic works directly by using Wi-Fi, the wireless router can be removed.

The portable wireless router I'm using is the TP-LINK TL-MR3040. I configured the router to assign a specific ip address to the edgertronic's hardware MAC address because the edgertronic will ask for an IP address using DHCP.

Full parts list:

- Tripod mount for 7-8” tablets: http://amzn.to/Mi6h78
- L-shaped bracket holder: http://amzn.to/1nV83aq
- TP-LINK TL-MR3040 portable wireless router: http://amzn.to/1fiBkfR
- Custom power cable: 2.5mm/5.5mm DC plug soldered to a male XT60 connector
- 2200 mAH 3S LiPo battery with female XT60 connector (a standard, of sorts)
- Bluecell LiPov... more »

- 2200 mAH 3S LiPo battery with female XT60 connector (a standard, of sorts)
- Bluecell LiPo voltage checker: http://amzn.to/1l7LMsQ
- Ethernet cable

The 2200 mAH battery should power the camera for nearly 2 hours because the camera draws about 1 amp. Say 90 minutes, conservatively. Mike says that the edgertronic will shut off at 8 volts, but a 3S LiPo will become damaged before it reaches 8 volts, so the voltage checker is necessary.

I tried using the Really Right Stuff B26 plate with anti-rotation pin, but the pin didn't quite fit. RRS tells me that the Really Right Stuff B76 Multi-use fore-aft plate (http://bit.ly/1fH8px6) will work. Anti-rotation is accomplished by grabbing the lip of the edge of the camera.

I'm shooting a BMD Pocket Cinema Camera for the first time, underwater. The Nauticam housing for it is fantastic, and the Panasonic 8mm fisheye lens is pleasing with the slight crop factor. Best of all, I'm shooting CinemaDNG (raw) with a Magic Filter. The colors in today's manta shoot, which was in murky water, looks pretty good after light processing in Lightroom!

I don't think I have enough hard disks, though. CinemaDNG is around 3.6 GB per minute, and I'm shooting about 30 GBs worth of frames per dive.

On January 1, 2014, I went to Keyhole Rock in Big Sur to take a timelapse of the sun streaming through the famous keyhole on the beach. The low tide and hazy horizon made for a poor shaft of light through the hole, but wispy clouds made for an interesting timelapse, and by the time it was completely dark, the sky was crystal clear.

1389 frames, total. The first exposure was 1/160 sec at f/8, ISO 160 and the last, 20 sec at f/2.8, ISO 3200. Exposure changes were done manually and smoothed out using LRTimelapse. Music courtesy Mobygratis (http://mobygratis.com/). Special thanks to +George Krieger for taking me to this special beach on the Northern California coast.

I went to Window of the World in Shenzhen a couple days ago, and it was totally bizarre / awesome. Imagine miniature reproductions of prominent world locations from the point of view of 80s China.

Going live! Imminent!

Drone Photography — The Variety Hour is Back!  Episode #87

We'll start the show with a special announcement and a sneak peek at something INSANELY COOL.

But then, we'll jump right into the discussion on Drone Photography.  Like me, I'm sure your drone-curious.  I've never done any, and it looks kind of confusing and scary, but it probably isn't.  That's why we're fully loaded with great guests to answer our dumb questions and figure all this stuff out.  

Who's joining? +Eric Cheng +Barry Blanchard  +Russell Preston Brown  +Colin Guinn +Frederick Van Johnson  +Thomas Hawk  +Peter Giordano  and the always great +Dave Veffer  !

P.S. if you have any suggestions on other people that are really into Drone Photography, let us know.  ___Going live! Imminent!

I spent the first week of November diving the Channel Islands. It was my first cold-water trip since a dive trip to Alaska about 5 years ago, and it was WONDERFUL. Love kelp, and the California coastal ecosystem. This was a Wetpixel expedition. If you're interested in diving with us, check out http://wetpixel.com/expeditions. We are going to Komodo in February, and have a few spots left.

Happy Halloween! I'm reminded of a trip I made to see the Mt. Hagen Cultural Show in Papua New Guinea. Many of the sing-sing costumes at that show would have fit in perfectly with Halloween here in the states (in this picture, performers from South Chimbu hang out in the preparation area before the show).

I went to visit Salvation Mountain on October 25, 2013 and took some aerial footage using a DJI Phantom quadcopter, gimbal and GoPro HERO 3 camera (with a polarizing filter). Salvation Mountain is located near Niland, California, and is Leonard Knight's "tribute to God and his gift to the world with its simple yet powerful message: 'God Is Love.'" (from http://www.salvationmountain.us). If you are in the area, I highly recommend a visit. #quadcopter   #aerial   #aerialphotography

Night shots with a micro-4/3 camera: Spanish padre under the milky way. Galleta Meadows, Anza Borrego, California. Shot with Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens. 20 seconds at f/2.0, ISO 2000.

It was my first time doing any long exposures with a micro-4/3 camera, and I had mixed feelings about the experience. I was pleasantly surprised by the image quality, and liked that the Olympus 12/2.0's infinity marker in manual focus is accurate. I also liked that I could shoot at f/2.0 and get much better DoF (less-critical focus required) than I can with my 5D3.

However, the lack of an optical viewfinder makes night photography really hard. Sure, you can turn the rear LCD off, but even using an EVF at night will blind you in one eye. And you can forget about trying to compost through the LCD or EVF. You have to light up your subject for anything to show up in the picture. Also,... more »

Also, the beam of light that shoots out from the EVF (even when the EVF is showing an all-black preview), which will create light pollution if you are shooting with other people around.

So mixed feelings. Also, I need a 7mm/2.0 to really get the shots I want. :)___

I wish I had brought a macro lens down to San Diego with me. It was a dewy, misty morning, and the spider webs were in great form. I shot this with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 with 75mm lens, 1/400 sec at f/4.0, ISO 200 (crop).

OK, this is pretty gross. +kozy kitchens is obsessed with venus fly traps, and likes to catch flies to feed them. She swatted this one, and a ball of maggots burst out of its innards! I thought flies housed eggs, which hatched into maggots after being implanted into rotting flesh. I did some reading, and apparently, a flesh fly can squirt live maggots. I had no idea. I think this is a Sarcophaga haemorrhoidalis.

Redwood trees are the tallest trees in the world, and can live for thousands of years. This particular species of redwood trees are only found in the coastal regions of Northern California and in Oregon near the California border. I read an excellent book called "Wild Trees" by Richard Preston that tells the story of the adventurers and scientists who discovered the largest redwoods and study the rich ecosystem in the redwood canopy. I highly recommend the read.

Footage shot with DJI Phantom, DJI gimbal, GoPro HERO 3 Black camera, ImmersionRC FPV. Shot at 2.7K / 30p, Protune. Edited with Final Cut Pro X (curse you, FCPx, for your inability to do things right!).

I set up a giant ZFS volume on my Mac today using ZEVO. No more silent corruption!! :)

I hate linking to my dated website, but I had to write up my ZFS filesystem experience somewhere on my site. If you're interested in storage, check it out! Photographers and videographers will have particular interest, since we're always fighting with storage and backup. HUGE thanks to Chris Emura for his help, as always. #storage   #zfs   #zevo

After getting asked a few hundred times what is the best way to get into aerial imaging, I wrote up a quadcopter buying guide / how to get into aerial imaging article. Note that this space is changing literally by the month, so things may be different by the end of the year. Competition = great for the consumer! :)

It's a fantastic perspective, although it's soft in areas because the new (non-OEM) lens I had installed on my GoPro seems to be defective. cc +Barry Blanchard +Karen Hutton +Laurie Rubin +Vincent Mo +Paul Moody +Aravind Krishnaswamy
