Wick Sakit1,192,794Ladies and Gentlemen a year has passed already for this wonderful gathering!  This month +Drink and Click™  will be drinking and clicking at the Oregon Brew Festival ( http://www.oregonbrewfest.com )!  So come one and come all and make sure you have a safe way home!!!  +Drink and Click™ Portland, Oregon, we know how to do it right!Don't forget to add the hashtag #drinkandclickpdx  to your photos :)Psss, it might or might not be +Brian Bonham's birthday so lets make sure its a day he wont remember :)Now for the monthly challenge!-----------------------------The July Challenge is "Post Processing". The image on this post was taken near sunset in Port Aransas, TX, but the water wasn't yellow, and the sky wasn't green. I enjoyed making it appear that way, however. :-)I used Lightroom to make all the adjustments on this photo; the jumping off point was a Trey Ratcliff preset called "Turkish Blast." I made several adjustments after that, including additional graduated filters and spot brushing to achieve the final effect.

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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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 +2014-07-13 11:58:3981406CC G+

All are excellent and active contributors to G+. It's quite Landscape biased (too many great photographers to pick out one or two), but there are examples of other genres and resources for example:Great photographers who work tirelessly through communities and pages, producing great interaction, such as +Margaret Tompkins +Kevin Rowe +Rinus Bakker and +Nancy Dempsey .... wonderful creative artists like +Heidi Anne Morris +Lotus Carroll +Bryan Peterson .....street photographers such as +Thomas Leuthard +Angelica Guckes ......the exquisite beauty of flowers and Macro by +Rosie Nixon +Silke Tüxen ......great teachers such as +Nicole S.

Hard to ignore that and I don’t understand it but that tells us the need in the Philippines is still great. We can wait for the government to do it so we need to help as much as possible. These funds will not go to the government but to Habitat for Humanity who is building homes themselves.For some this will be a reminder. Please understand that A lot of people doing a little will have a huge impact. We are making ripples when we post on Google Plus, FaceBook, Twitter and other social media. Why not make those ripples mean something positive?When you make or share a post, those post spreads out across the Internet like tossing a rock into a pond. The Internet is an infinite pond, so our impact can also be as infinite as our zeal to support something worthwhile. What is a little? If only I could get more people to understand that $2.00 is enough if everyone participates we could easily build an entire home for a Filipino family as the cost is under $4500 to build an earthquake and super typhoon resistant home in the Philippines. A home much nicer than most Filipinos live in.If two dollars is all you can give than please give that. It’s enough! Some donated less than a dollar and that too is enough! Every drop expands the ripple.http://www.give2habitat.org/member/rustyf/haiyanHowever, I realize times can be hard. You may not have a dime tospare but you can still help. When you reshare this circle, others will see it.  Though you may not be able to contribute they may be able too. Or they may share it too. The ripple will grow.A week or so ago, I got an email from Habit for Humanity (HFH) requesting additional help for the victims of Typhoon Hiayan.Here is a portion of their email:♥★★★★★★★★★★★★Your commitment to help rebuild the lives of the families who were displaced by Super Typhoon Yolanda inspires me and my coworkers.  Because of you, Habitat has been able so far to repair 22,000 damaged homes and to start constructing the first 1,000 of the 30,000 houses it aims to construct for the Yolanda survivors.I'm writing to you right now -- exactly six months after the tragedy -- in behalf of the Yolanda survivors.  Most of the displaced families are still living in makeshift houses, tents, and evacuation centers.They are currently enduring a hot summer but soon it will be replaced by the country's often very wet season.  I urge you, therefore, to help us remind others about them.♥★★★★★★★★★★★★There was a PDF included that revealed this:♥★★★★★★★★★★★★It’s been six months since Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), made its tragic landfall in the Philippines on November 8, 2014. Aside from the more than 8,000 Filipinos who died and are still missing, the typhoon affected…14 million FilipinosDestroyed or severely damaged more than a million homesWiped out or impaired millions of people’s livelihoods…And dreams.But there’s hope. You can support them by donating through >>>>> http://www.give2habitat.org/member/rustyf/haiyan(Additional options for donations b2014-06-02 12:07:07457161192152CC G+

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!

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 Mapes2014-05-13 10:19:1589425CC G+

For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people. It is constantly updated.  Send people in my circles or communities invites and other spam and you’ll soon find yourself blocked. If they are not following you, I really dislike that.  If you’re doing it, I will know and you will soon be gone.I don’t need to be the number one most shared circle to the point that it means loading you up with a ton of people I wouldn’t follow. I won’t do it.This is a circle made up of mostly of those that are known to share circles. However there are also over 100 profiles with incredible content or promote worthy causes. Most profiles are from those that have shared my circles in the past.To remain in this Circle do this:Plus this post.   Comment on this postShare this CircleAdd this Circle to your circles When you get re-shares of circles that you share, you’ll find that you are in more circles.  It is in your best interest to share it to your stream and tell others about the benefits of shared circles. Are You New to Circle Sharing?Here are some quick tips for you. When you add a circle, many of the people in it will add you back.  Many more will if you have a profile picture of your face. To further improve on that complete your tagline and employment fields found in your profile. Instead of saying you work for IBM or Walgreen’s tell us something about you in that field. What you do at your job or what you’d like to do. It doesn’t matter. What I want to know is what you are interested in on Google Plus.  You’re profile should tell us about what kinds of post you make.The other day, someone told me some of the people that add the circle will delete it. She’s right, they will. So what you need to do is engage with the people you add. Leave comments on their post. When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important. Google is trying to get us to improve our postings. I believe that’s the main reason they recently added it to our profile.  It’s a caret. Read between the lin2014-05-02 08:55:50452101017CC G+

Though I don't know all of them (yet) I am confident that they are absolutely worth adding to your own circles! I will also not that this circle is incredibly diverse-- artists, doctors, business women, entrepreneurs, bloggers, crafters, geeks (self-proclaimed), writers, trainers, and women who are awesome for a whole lot of reasons. What to do with this circleAdd this circle and take some time to monitor the stream over the next week. Find those that you really connect with or are inspired by and add them to another of your relevant circles. Do so until you believe you've added everyone of relevance and interest to you and then delete this circle (unless of course you just want to keep it-- that's fine too). I hope you make some great connections, I know I have already. And be sure to let me know in the comments below what you'd like to see the next #circlesplosion   project to be. :D #sharedcircles   #ns  2014-02-21 18:43:192589983129CC G+

Infrared at the Dog Park

I have always wanted to try out infrared photography, and so I decided that now was a good time! I have a IR-converted camera from +LensRentals.com, and took it out to the dog park with +Kodak Matiash this morning. I had a ton of fun with it and I'm seriously considering converting one of my own after my rental period is up. :)

Post-Processing: Edited using +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, +onOne Software, and +Adobe Photoshop. Color added back to Kodak using Photoshop.

Note: I'll post more information about this camera and my post-processing methods over on +Photofocus® in a few weeks.

One of the most memorable experiences in Thailand during the trip with +The Giving Lens team was when we visited the elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai. The elephants here at the Ran Tong Elephant Rescue Center are treated kindly and with respect, and it was a blast watching them play in the water. I caught this photo just as we were heading back to the van.

I'm sitting on the patio this morning, watching crows graze the lawn for their breakfast. I just watched as +Brian Matiash & +Brian Bonham went off on a waterfall adventure I've been dying to see for quite some time, but my recently-removed appendix is keeping me home. I'm up and about, and recovering quite well, but several hours sitting in a car just wasn't a good way to spend my day.

I think I'll head inside and have some lunch ... +Levi Sim & his family brought me some very tasty food yesterday, and I can hear it calling my name. :D

I took this early this morning as I was being admitted to the hospital for appendicitis. They'll be showing up soon to take me into surgery to take the little bugger out ... +Brian Matiash is by my side as we wait. Such a good hubby. :)

Wish me luck!

If you consider yourself social-media savvy, you may want to check out Postbokx (http://postbokx.com/). I'm currently testing the waters with their site, which seems to be a good place for brands and influencers to connect. I've had some really cool opportunities through other types of influencer programs, including a trip to Australia (as you can see in the photos with this post), so I'm curious to see how this site will develop.

I had a great time last night with the family, along with about two dozen of my brother's friends. They shot off some crazy fireworks ... some were more like bombs, but that's another story altogether. :)

Butte Creek Falls

This past weekend I finally made it out to Butte Creek Falls with +David Daniels and +Brian Matiash. I was supposed to head out there with +Brian Bonham the weekend prior, but a 101° temperature was preventing me from doing much of anything. :)

The falls here are gorgeous! The hike wasn't too bad, either. I loved that there was plenty of opportunity to walk into the water and photograph it from different angles.

Processing info: +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom was used for the basic edits, and then I used +onOne Software's Perfect Effects 8 for stylization and added lens blur.

You may have noticed that there's more to Lightroom than the Library and Develop Modules--there's also a Print Module, and it's incredibly awesome. Special guest photographer +Kevin Ames (http://bit.ly/1wbqnlG) is going to reveal the secret powers of the Print Module and you'll find that it's really great for much more than making prints. +Gerard Murphy, +Rob Sylvan, and +Levi Sim will also share their favorite tips.

How do you like the updated Lightroom Mobile app?

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited about the newly updated app from +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. It's not perfect (yet), such as, I would dearly love to be able to paint-brush in keywords and filter out my files, but it's a very good start at mobile processing of my non-phone photographs. Time will tell how much it gets used, but so far I'm very optimistic.

So, what do you think?

(BTW, according to +Adobe, they are developing a version for +Android!) :)

Kodak in Dreamland ...

I processed another one of my "Kodak in Dreamland" series photos. This was photographed with an infrared-converted camera I rented from +LensRentals.com, and processed to bring color back to +Kodak Matiash's fur. Now I just need to convert one of my own cameras to IR so I can make more of these!

Shipwrecked

Last night I met up with photographers +Craig Colvin, +Jeffrey Yen, +Brian Bonham, and +Brian Matiash to photograph the Peter Iredale Shipwreck on the Oregon coast. We weren't expecting much of a sunset, but the sky surprised us with some color off to the side. I stepped back just after the color started dissipating to grab a long-exposure of the group ... I like how it kind of makes everyone look like they're in the middle of the ocean. :)

The Microstock Conundrum

"Next month marks my eighth-year "anniversary" with licensing my images through iStock. When I started, I was fairly new to the world of digital photography after having been using a film SLR for several years, and wanted to improve my skills. Microstock was a way for me to do just that, and with the interesting side-effect of being able to make photography a career. I owe a lot to that start and probably would not be doing what I do now if I had not discovered microstock in the first place, but the industry is definitely not what it used to be..."

Mud Bath

One thing we are learning about our dog, +Kodak Matiash, is just how much he loves puddles. It doesn't matter if it's water or goopy, smelly mud, if he's nearby (and off-leash) he is in it. He plops down, eats/drinks whatever he can find in it, and comes out looking like this. Let's just say that hose-downs and shampoos are common-place in our backyard. :)

The White Salmon River

What do you do when a group of white-water-rafters pass through your long-exposure spot? Well, you photograph them, that's what! :)

I was really hoping that they were going to brave the short (yet treacherous) drop to the left (not on camera), but they have a little path to go around it. Probably a safer bet, if you could see the drop. :) So, instead of only trying to photograph some fast-action rafters in the water, I wanted to see what would happen if I included them in my long exposure.

Plan B ...

This morning +Brian Matiash, +Brian Bonham & his son, Alex, and I got in the car and drove North into Washington in search of a waterfall I have been wanting to photograph. Not 10 miles from our intended location, Brian's car got stuck in the snow (yes, snow!) and after 30 minutes of digging him out (with the help of a friendly stranger with a shovel) we were forced to turn around and find something else to point our cameras at.

We were near a lot of white-water rafting spots, including these beautiful little falls, so we set up over a bridge and worked the scene. +Brian Matiash made his way down a path and he was positioned perfectly for a nice portrait with him doing what he loves. :)

Here is another infrared of +Kodak Matiash in the park using an IR-converted Canon 5DII from +LensRentals.com. I'm really loving this effect ... and Kodak makes a nice model, lol. :)

Processed using +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, +Adobe Photoshop, and +onOne Software's Perfect Effects 8. Color added back to Kodak in Photoshop with a color-blended layer.

Infrared at the Dog Park

I have always wanted to try out infrared photography, and so I decided that now was a good time! I have a IR-converted camera from +LensRentals.com, and took it out to the dog park with +Kodak Matiash this morning. I had a ton of fun with it and I'm seriously considering converting one of my own after my rental period is up. :)

Post-Processing: Edited using +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, +onOne Software, and +Adobe Photoshop. Color added back to Kodak using Photoshop.

Note: I'll post more information about this camera and my post-processing methods over on +Photofocus® in a few weeks.

I'm playing around with the new Analog Effects Pro 2 by +Nik Collection by Google ... I thought it would go well with this ginormous buddha statue we found in Thailand. :)

We're constantly working to polish the Google+ Photos experience. Recently we've introduced three small enhancements that make it easier to find, manage, and download your files:

• Easily find old photos you’ve just uploaded with the "Recently added" view (available via the "More" menu within Photos). This view sorts your collection according to upload date, rather than capture date, so all the images you've just added appear first.

• Want to see all the images from a particular camera model or manufacturer? Open any photo, look in the "Photo details" section, then click the name of your camera (for example "Nexus 5"). Google will search your library and show all matching images.

• Google+ can store full-resolution copies of your images, including RAW originals. That's great, but how do you download theorigina... more »

Ceramic Test Tiles!

This week I (partially) set up some of my ceramics studio so that I can get to work on making my glaze test tiles. I am going to be testing out eight different types of clay on around 20-30 different glazes, which means I need 20-30 test tiles for each type of clay! I'm not in a huge rush to get them all made, as I won't have my "official" studio completed until sometime in July. My kiln is literally sitting in a box at Georgie's, waiting for me to have a place to put it.

All in all, it feels really good to be playing with clay again. Seeing as how I have a bit of time before I can use my kiln, I'll probably use up as much clay with test tiles and other projects as I have shelf space to let them dry. By the time my kiln does arrive, it will definitely be put to good use!

Latourell Falls

A few days back, +Brian Matiash and I had the pleasure of taking +Scott Kelby and +Brad Moore out to a waterfall, just outside of Portland. It was a beautiful day, and I was so happy to be at a waterfall again (my first time since moving back). Scott had his "list" of photos he still needed for a book he's finishing up, and we were able to help him cross at least one of those off of his list :)

Today I'm off to the DMV to get my driver's license and new plates. Hopefully I'll be back in time to watch +Brian Matiash LIVE on The Grid at 1pm PST! http://kelbyone.com/webcasts/thegrid/

Pappardelle Pasta

I have just discovered my new favorite pasta noodle: Pappardelle. I have seen this used in recipes many times, but last night was the first time actually cooking with it. This pasta is a dream to photograph, too; tons of texture, lots of surface for things to "stick to", and to make it perfect I placed each noodle down individually by hand. And, it was SO delicious. :)

I processed this photo using Lightroom & +onOne Software's Perfect Effects 8. Head over to my blog to download the (FREE!) preset I used with this image in Perfect Effects! http://nicolesyblog.com/?p=16628

Basement Cat

This is Fuji, our cat, peeking out of the door at the top of the stairs from the basement. He hides out down there to stay away from our spastic young doggy, +Kodak Matiash. I think he has a happy life, and I still go down and give him loves from time to time. :)

A Subtle Sunset

A few weeks before we moved from the South Bay back to Portland, I had one last chance to spend some time photographing in Santa Cruz with +Karen Hutton. In my time in California, I saw very few clouds in the sky, and this was the first time I saw them in Santa Cruz! While it's quite the subtle sunset, I was at least happy to have something in the sky. The blank-blue-nothingness of the South Bay sky is no good for landscape photography.

Watermelon Fruit Salad

My office is still not fully unpacked, but I couldn't help but do a quick food shoot ... the first one since we moved back! I have a little write-up about it and some behind-the-scenes images over on my blog: http://nicolesy.me/1jCh1e9

Rowena Sunset #2

Here's another photo from sunset last week on the Rowena Crest. I processed much of this using +onOne Software's Perfect Effects ... which, by the way, is currently FREE! It's for a limited time, so go get it while you can ...

I went to the neighborhood market this morning with +Brian Matiash. It's a small market, but I like it! It has all the essentials (fruits, veggies, and a pig's ear for +Kodak Matiash), and also some flowers, cheese, meats, and eggs ... all local and fresh! :)

Blue Ripples

I swear I get some of the best iPhone images when I'm out walking +Kodak Matiash. It doesn't hurt that this park is beautiful. :)

Rowena Sunset

Today I have been back in Portland for one full week, we've lived in our house since Friday, and last night I went shooting with +Brian Matiash and +Brian Bonham for the first time in forever. It sure feels good to be home again. :)
