Rusty Ferguson0۝►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►►The Power Ball, V7 from +Rusty FergusonNew Version 4-24-14 To Improve Your Engagement & Stream◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄◄۝A good shared circle will not only help you to grow your following and increase your engagement, it will also provide you with some quality people that you will be happy to have in your stream. 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 add2014-04-24 14:03:33454124110119CC G+

Gailen Mapes62,568Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. 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 Mapes2014-04-14 10:20:051978410CC G+

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles. It's been a lot of fun seeing your work and I look forward to resharing the circles in a few months time. Stay ACTIVE everyone.2014-03-17 00:25:0949113234139CC G+
Nigil Haroon5,389Engagers Super CircleDear FriendsYou will love this circle. Here are people who have regularly engaged with me and shared or commented on my posts. I have included other well known people in G+ as well as people whose shares tend to be reshared a lot. You would want them in your circle to increase your reach in G+.I hope you like this circle and make full use of it by adding, plussing and sharing this publicly. Best wishes for a great Sunday. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #circleshared   #circles   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #circlecount   #circlecircle  2014-03-16 03:51:1650015667133CC G+

I am Thrilled to announce I have  not only been invited to  a Master in the Arcanum but also to be selected among the very first Photography  Masters to begin accepting apprentices during it's beta introduction!

If you don't already know what this is click below and check it out,

   I will be completing that process in the next day or so and if you have an application in and want to be considered for inclusion in my cohort, you will need to let me know here.  I can't guarantee I can accept anyone who applies(there are very limited spaces) but I won't know if you don't tell me.  Each Master is inviting up to 20 apprentices to participate in this AMAZING Mentorship program that brings the proven Master/Apprentice model to the most current technology available.

Who Knew?

Who knew a bog plant could be so unique!!  This is the flower of the Pitcher Plant.  an abundant bog plant here in Ontario.  I had never  seen them flower until last year on a trip preparing for this years spring Wildflower workshop. It has to be one of the coolest plants I know.

The Arcanum Doors Open to Private Beta!
Big news! Masters are now selecting their first Apprentices into www.TheArcanum.com  ! +Varina Patel  just selected 20 Apprentices, who are walking through the mysterious doors into the magical academy :)   

Now, this is early beta, so we are going very slow and observing & measuring everything. So we do certainly ask for your patience, but the amazing Masters here are 100% committed to helping you find your own personal, artistic path.

This is a totally new way to learn and get new skills. No system like this has ever been built before — a dynamic and organic system of truly personal learning in a self-replicating network. This first group of people are true believers, and we look forward to creating something that we feels changes the world. Thank you so much for joining us so we can change the world together.

Frustrated with Photoshop?
I am offering  _Layers Masks and Modes, Oh My_  a live hangout/demonstration based 3 week mentorship  for a spring session beginning very soon!

There are still a few spots left if you want to get a solid foundation in these three fundamental tools of Photoshop.

Share with friends you think would really appreciate a program like this!

"Your style is what you're doing academically wrong. Radicalize yourself -- you only have one life to show you've got style."

Now this really stopped me in my tracks this morning, I was reading "Robert Genn Twice-Weekly Letter" and Sara was listing her  version of Neil Gaiman's Eight Rules for writing. That was #7

I think it's what the great icons of change in this world  understand intrinsically.  Break out of the rules you impose on your creativity.

Ontario Spring Night

What a fantastic first trip to our spring Night Sky Workshop area!
Yesterday +Darryl Van Gaal and I went to an area northeast of Peterborough and scouted some fantastic areas for our upcoming workshop. If any of you would love to learn about shooting Night landscape long exposure photography, this is a prime opportunity.  This spring there is a unique chance to capture a a strong  new meteor shower from Comet 209P/LINEAR. No matter the conditions we will have an amazing long exposure weekend with great daytime landscape opportunities as well!  (I was even licked by a deer, true story)

When we asked +Chris Orwig what he wanted to share with all of you he jumped out of his chair and said,

"Super excited about the show. My topic is going to be, "Capturing those magic moments". I am going to show the process of how I seek to capture and then eventually select the moments that mean the most. In order to do this, we'll dig into a few unedited folders of images in Lightroom to give a behind the scenes look at the photos that were captured. Here we'll look at how using Collections in incredibly important for whittling down to the keepers. We'll look at a few different examples:  iPhone photos, commercial shoot and a personal project. Finally, I'll highlight a few steps in Lightroom to make some improvements. "

O.K. maybe he didn't "jump" out of his chair, but he is excited to share his knowledge with you!

Considering Stock?

Have unique quality images that might fit the bill?

Here is an interesting take on connecting images with advertisers and buyers that looks pretty cool.  It may be worth a minute of your time to check it out!

If I was a poet

I would have this picture accompanied by a poem that matches in words the soft flowing petals on these roses......

.... but I'm just a photographer with a lensbaby plastic optics (and marco extension)..... who ran around the house last night finding stuff to photograph!!

You should see all the other odd stuff I found in my house.. LOL

Two Amazing Women
one great chat

Not only has +Karen Hutton become a great friend, but I had the chance to meet +Tamara Lackey in Vegas last year and let me tell you, she is "All That", a bundle of energy and creativity that flows out through her work and all that she does for our profession.

I'm so glad I'm not at 3 million followers yet ;-)   Great rant and one I can get on board with, mostly.  Yeah "mostly" is like the proverbial "I love you. "but".  I think there is a huge community that is making huge interpersonal connections and creating a better humanity online.  I am involved in a community of amazing creatives on G+ that has changed my life, many that I've met in person and that I have also increased my local relationships with.  My business has grown and my photography has benefited.  heck I follow you because of it.

All that stuff about business and valuing yourself more than valuing your popularity is BANG ON and we need more people drawing that line in the sand and building sustainable business models and producing excellent work.

This will be a fun and inspirational show so be sure to tune in!!
If you watch us LIVE at 9:30 on Wednesday you can join in the Q&A and get answers to your burning questions, if you watch afterwards on YouTube then you can email us with any questions you may have. ... more »

My Backyard  click to see larger, really

Well not "actually" my back yard, but I call it that. Ontario is an amazing place to play in any season.

This is another shot of the other worldly formations on Lake Huron this year.

The End Of Summer

The end of one season is only the beginning of another.  This is part of a set of images taken during our earlier and severe ice storms, making an early statement, "I'm here for a long cold winter", and it was true, one of the most brutal and beautiful winters I have ever experienced.  Now Spring is being held back by a final Polar Vortex ( known as a cold snap in the day )

The Spirit of The Grotto

During our recent winter trip, myself and 6 other photographers ventured into  Bruce Peninsula National Park.  Every time I go there I get such a strong sense of a spiritual connection to the landscape.  It's as though it reveals itself piece by piece, trip by trip.

I am nearly all packed and ready to go and see this great area.  This will be my final frozen trip, the weather looks GREAT and there  is still a tone of beautiful snow.  Next time I go up will be for the Orchid workshop at the end of May.

I have watched an amazing and very inspirational 3-day class by Brooke Shaden (Master Your Craft). At the end she played the following video, and – with tears in her eyes – she asked for any kind of monetary help people can offer to bring this Photography School of Human Trafficking into reality.
Please, spread the word, and help if you can. I'd like to ask you to share this post if possible to let others learn about the cause as well.

What a mind expanding Show

+David Biedny showed us why he is the Yoda to my Photoshop.  had us all in awe and wonder as we learned some of the very important and fundamental uses for LAB mode and selections.

NOT JUST HOW, BUT WHY

 especially when doing Blue and Green Screen work.

All Eyes On You

tl;dr - I am bring back #PhotographyDeathMatch .  Do you want to participate?

Once upon a time, not so long ago... WAIT.  That is the start of a Bon Jovi song.  Whoops.

A couple of years ago, +Samir Osman and I had a little "flower battle" and from that, #PhotographyDeathMatch  was born.  We would match up photographers in different genres (trying to get ones that they were NOT comfortable in) and give them a week to produce 3 spectacular images so that they could go "head-to-head" in a just-for-fun battle.  

There was friendly-trash talking and different judges every time.  And just about every single participant walked away with a new friend and learning about a new style of photography.

I have heard that some people would love to see something like that come back.  I think it would be a blast todo again... more »
