They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the 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 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-09 10:48:3515210216CC G+

Dustin W. Stout26,662The Most Creative and Inspiring People on Google+As the first of my #circlesplosion  shares, this crowd-curated circle is comprised of those people who have been personally endorsed as some of the most creative and inspiring people on Google+.These folks are artists, designers, photographers, crafters, painters, musicians, videographers, marketers, and all around creators of things here on Google+.If you're a creator of things and want to connect with more people who create and inspire, add this circle.  Keep watch of the people in this stream and connect with the people you resonate with. About #circlesplosionAs I discussed in my introduction to #circlesplosion  (here - dustn.tv/circlesplosion/) managing and curating your circles will ultimately give you the greatest experience here on Google+. In an effort to connect people with passion, with other people with those same passions, I have resolved to share these crowd-curated circles with the world. I hope this group gives you as much value as it has me!

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 14:09:1333813411CC G+

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 15:53:284915966104CC G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050113386127CC G+

Stephanie Calahan0FABULOUS 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+

Did you guys know the average prom is costing about 1,000 bucks this year!?  Seriously!  AND...that's down 14% from last year!  Gah.  Go feed a small county, teens...

All that disposable income...I have no idea what that's like.  Well, I guess all my income gets disposed of--just in the form of bill payment.  Which is so NOT fun.
  
Anyway...this was my office set up last night.  I was shootin' corsages--hence, the prom rant above.  The above photo is behind the scenes and the bottom is the finished product :)

most days,  i don't even think about you.

when i do, it's only because i start to feel guilty that i don't miss you in my life at all.

it's amazing how once the negative energy leaves your life how beautiful the little things start to look.  

sometimes, a forced charge is the only way i'll make any change--even if it is for the better :)

it's all about  b a l a n c e ...or, so i've been told.

it's funny the things that make us feel 'balanced' when we're searching.  

for me to quickly find a center...i need black coffee, and some skate park, punk music, and a list.  it's the only way i can speed my body up to where my brain already is--all while keeping organized.  i also need to see results of things quickly to keep motivated.  (even if it's just in the form of a website update taking effect...)

cheers to balance--in however you find it.

So, I just discovered this thing called...YouTube?  Apparently it's a big thing in the 'moving picture' world.  Who knew!?

Anyway...as my business grows and my 5-year, business plan becomes a reality--I'll be using this channel for all things businessy.   (Client videos, behind the scenes stuff and anything else I feel like subjecting you to :) )

SO...without further ado, (aka: more rambling on my end)--here's my first video.

Almost 20 years ago I thought I'd be the one in the photos with him someday.  After so many ups and downs, and an amazing daughter of our own--here I am, on the other side of the camera, photographing him and his new family.

Life is such an incredible thing.  I can't imagine life any different for either of us now.  Things feel right, and are right, and I am proud to be the one there, capturing these moments for them all to look back on and smile at someday.  Maybe even in another 20 years :)

Realizing that Season 6 of The Guild is now on Netflix has seriously hindered all 'real' productivity today.  

Either way, happy #floralfriday , folks!  

I'm going back to work now...in four more minutes, that is...

back when she was little i said...

i want her to be confident in her surroundings and in herself.
i want her to be be a critical thinker.
i want her to question everything.
i want her to be a leader.
i want her to be a free thinker.
i want her to feel valued.
i want her to be empathetic in order to be more understanding of everyone.

those aren't always things that come easily to me.  i've struggled with many of them.  but, i recognize it, and, i've forced myself to change and evolve.  i never wanted to be trapped by my insecurities for the rest of my life, nor did i want to trap my daughters in them.

i've spent my life working on being better, so they can be better.  so maybe they won't have to struggle with the same insecurities that i've struggled with.  so, maybe they'll have a huge head start in life--and nothave... more »

Some of the flowers I work with look fake.  Like...so perfect, they couldn't be real.  

edit below!

(You know, kinda like those FB status updates from that one mom...you know, the one who only posts the highlights and then pretends that's her whole life.  'Oh, church today was just so perfect, and all my children are so beautiful, and great at their sports, and straight A students.  Also, I'm so thankful for my ginormous, perfectly clean, house!  # blessed.'_  You know exactly who I'm talking about, don't you ;)  )

here's the edited part: 
I really should have let you know my inspiration for this.  No.  It was no one that I, actually know.  (I have the best, realest, and coolest, mommy friends ever :) Really.  I would not be able to survive some days without them.  Okay, most days.)  It was TOTALLY my favoriteblog in the w... more »

Well, my camera and I have been hired to do 'real' work.  (I say real, only in the sense, that it's someone else paying us and giving us direction.)  I take photos, I blog, I take care of social media needs--I'm always writing, always looking at color/wedding/prom/floral/seasonal trends and I completely rely on creativity to keep me inspired enough to do all of the above.

I'm not one to share tons of 'work' photos...BUT, I feel out of touch here and I don't want you guys to think I'm not doing anything.  (Which sometimes IS the case...not this time though.)  PLUS, almost ALL of my photos involve candy and/or flowers...and who doesn't like candy and flowers!?

r :: rice

eh.  i'm catchin' up.  
i've been a bit sidetracked lately.  i have a new job that i really like, but requires thought and creativity.  which is perfect.  however--my work hours consist of whenever the house is quiet.  
(which is like two hours a day.  total.)  
((well, if you count late at night--that's something too.  but, i've usually had a glass of wine by then and, well, all serious thought leaves my brain.))
(((that's assuming that i have serious thoughts in the first place.)))

anyway...my quiet time lately has been dedicated to learning and working on work--instead of playing with my food.

l :: lemguins

it's weird.  posting this doesn't seem lighthearted today.  i don't have anything clever, or cutesy to say about the shot.  (though there's so much i think i could say...)  

i'm not good at heartfelt sentiment either.  

today is one of those days that i'm just at a total, loss, for words.  

i woke up to see the news about the passing of +Lee Daniels. (ironically, she always had the right words to say :) )  she was one of the first people i met around this place and she always inspired me--whether in words, photos or courage.  i followed her journey before her diagnosis (her BIRDS!) and then throughout.  she was one of us.  always will be.

tomorrow...i shoot for lee.  

today...you get lemguins.

This Is Life - Capturing Your Reality

So, this kind of self-portrait kind of goes against what most think of when they think of taking a self-portrait.  (Which is why I like it :) )  It’s not about looking your best.  It’s not about zooming in, and only focusing on you.  It’s not about the artistic side of photography.  It’s not about the editing process.  It’s about you.  It’s about your life.  It’s all about R E A L I T Y.   It’s about when you think you’re way too busy to even possibly think of snapping a selfie--pausing, grabbing your camera, zooming out, and making a photograph.

Here are a few things to think about before you really start thinking about your shot:

It’s not about just you.  It’s about the whole scene--the bigger picture.  It’s about telling a real, true-to-life, story with yournatural surroundings.  It’s about ... more »

so...here's what happened...

i was shooting for #selfysunday  and my goal was to create SOME sort of a story.  i'm so bored lately, creatively, and i wanted to do something that felt a little bit bigger than just a photo--hence the 'story' idea.

THEN...when looking though my camera, to see what i was coming up with, i noticed benedict cumberbatch in the shadow.  (or not.  i'm just a weirdo sherlock fan so, naturally, that's ALL i saw.)  anyway...i, immediately, gave up the 'story' idea and started shooting my shadow--it needed it to look MORE like #sherlock .  

70 shots later, i realized, mostly, that i really need a life.  on top of that, i noticed that my love of the show, sherlock, may be weird.

regardless...i got him.  i got IT, i mean.  

the first shot is my initial, story idea.  (lame.)  the second shotis my best... more »

An amazing thing happened....I blogged--2 days in a row.  It wasn't even a New Year's resolution, or anything.  Just a happy accident.

My, actual, New Year's resolution was to not eat so much crap. For lunch today, I had a Slim Fast with caramel/cheese popcorn mix and some chocolate.  I'm pretty sure I need to keep working on that resolution.  Or, maybe I should switch my resolution to blogging more--that way, I wouldn't feel like such a loser.  

Either way...enjoy!

Happy #fidofriday  :)  

Stay warm out there, America.  It's looking cold and snowy in a lot of places this weekend.  The Governor of MN cancelled ALL public schools on Monday because of our cold.  That hasn't happened in a really, long, time--since I was in school and had to walk, uphill, both ways.

A trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art yesterday inspired my 2014 photographic goal.  

It's simply, to simplify.  

Life is just busy.  And stressful lately.  My head is always cluttered.  I never stop thinking a million, random, unnecessary thoughts.  A million thoughts of what I could do, what I should do and what I could have done and should have done.  The insomnia leads to coffee...coffee leads to shaky hands.  I know this year holds more in the way of schedule's and there are unknown's going into 2014.  I don't have all the security I desire and that makes all of the above even worse.

And.  I miss my camera.  We haven't spent enough time together lately.  That's another thing that gets me.  Like, I'm not enough--I need to do more with her.  SO...with some inspiration from a Sarah Jones exhibit at the MIA, I am going minimalthis year.  I... more »

In 2014, I won’t let those who don’t care about me, control me.
(I think relinquishing them from thoughts is the true challenge though…)

That’s the long story short.

Here’s the long story, long… 

I feel like New Years and breakups are a bit similar.  Both are new starts.  Both leave you making promises to yourself to never repeat the same mistakes.  Both leave you deciding to start over and start fresh.  Both start off a bit rough.

This year, they’re coinciding for me.

I’ve had the same best friend for ten years.  We were neighbors.  We raised our daughters, of the same age, together.  Our husband became best friends.  We did fairs together.  We did dinners together.  We spent every Halloween and New Years together.  We did birthday parties and family parties and anniversaries and engagements together.  They wereour witnesses when my husban... more »
