Maddie Jane1,907The part of the show where Maddie admits to one of her many 'screw-ups'. :)I frequently have tech issues when it comes to adding people from circles. On at least 2 occasions (I'm sure there are a few more out there somewhere) I have accidently added the entire circle rather than the 5 or so that I really wanted. Due to the high volume adding and lack of time to cull through these, I created a new circle and moved on. When I have free time (don't laugh!) I try to make my way through them and add each to their respective circle.It has taken me a long time to finally get my Photography circle back to 'normal', even though I know I'm still missing some of you. I wanted to share my favorites and couldn't wait another minute! These photographers or photography sharers are a huge inspiration to not only my own attempts at the art, but my writing too. Enjoy! Circle! Share! Say Hello! :) #circleshare   #photography   #photographers   #inspiration   #personal  2012-11-03 18:34:1350502CC G+

Matthew Trotter0Okay. I've been collecting shared #writer / #reader circles for the past week or so, and I thought I'd share our combined efforts. Of course, G+ only allows you to share 500 people at a time, so this isn't a complete list, but it's pretty substantial.I've had a blast talking to and getting to know all of you over this past week or so. I've laughed, learned, and loved—a lot. I hope this circle will provide you the same pleasure that it has provided me.And just because you don't see yourself doesn't mean you're not in my circle. Like I said, there's a 500 person sharing limit. Still, if there's any doubt, you can ask to be added. I'm more than happy to.Much writerly love and salud,MattP.S.

Alik Griffin5,462PhotographersSo I think I've finally got a pretty solid circle of photographers ready to share. I've been refining this for the last month, adding photographers who have a good eye and aesthetic that I think are good. I like photography that takes you places and allows you to see people and things from all parts of the world from perspectives you've never seen before. I think many of the photographers in this circle do that very well. These are all very active G+ users and should provide your stream with some really nice content. If you are new to G+ you can start growing your network and enhancing your stream with with some of googles greatest.Please share.#photography #photographers #sharedcircles #artists2012-04-13 00:13:54485383034CC G+

Tania Walters104“Active Engagers Shared Circle” v1.2GPlussers, this is the latest version of my “Active Engagers Shared Circle” v1.2, a difference of other shared circles that include users with the most wonderful pictures, or those with the most number of users, or the nicest people in G+; this “Active Engagers Shared Circle” v1.2 just includes the GPlussers that are making Google Plus a great experience, with their frequent interaction, in the form of comments, shares or +1’s. All these GPlussers have interacted with my posts on the last week so you know they are currently active and willing to enjoy, share and comment on any good post.Disclaimer: This “Active Engagers Shared Circle” v1.2 includes GPlussers with different interests and a variety of political positions. I don’t necessary agree with all their opinions, but I certainly respect their point of views… even if while I was adding some of them to this circle I was trying to kick my own… well you get the point…I recommend you to make your best to hook these guys to your circle and the best way to make them circle you back is having some great public posts in your stream before you add them to your circle, follow the following tips to make the best of your Google Plus adventure…TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU.First thing, go to your profile and fill out the “About” tab, it is very important that you try to fill this out as much as possible, you may want to avoid personal information like your address and phone number, after all it is the Internet. A lot of people before circling you back will review this page and won’t circle you if it is blank. At least you should fill the Introduction, Bragging rights (something that catch the eye, brag about yourself), and Places lived.Also, it is very important to change the default photo, as beginner I would recommend to put one of your best pictures where the other Google Plus users can see your face, then later change it with your pet picture or whatever you want to have as your avatar. It is very important when you start that people feel like is getting to know you so they can feel confident to circle you back… don’t put that picture your friends shoot last time you fall asleep at that party… leave it for later, when enough people have circled you back..Don’t hide your information, there is nothing wrong with being new to Google Plus and don’t having too many people in your circles or not too many people that circled you back. A lot of people, like me, won’t be really inclined to circle back somebody that hides this information, it could be a troll or a spammer. Besides, looking to the people you have in your circle and who circle you back may help to get somebody to circle you back, it has happened to me when I do not find enough posts from a user that interest me, I check their circle and if I find people that I know as interesting, I assume there is potential for this person to become interesting as well.Before you start adding people to your circle, fill your stream with great stuff. The first think I do when people circle me is to check their streams to find out what they post, if I don’t find enough stuff that interests me, I don’t circle back. Chances are, this will be the only time the people you circle will take a look to your stream, if they don’t circle you back, so don’t miss the chance to introduce yourself with great posts.Don’t even think on writing, “I’m going to take a shower”, “Brrr, it is freezing”, “I’m going to the gym”, … as posts, you can use FB for that, for some reason people don’t find amusing these kind of posts in Google Plus. Instead, you can share whole anecdotes, funny stuff is always very well welcomed… The usual “Good Morning” or “Good night” seems to be fine, if you really have to post it…Until you have enough people in your circles, try to make only public posts, so the people you circle can chec2012-03-19 10:05:55498718CC G+

And final color touchups in Lightroom.

Tokyo Street Photography
While in Tokyo for a day and a half I shot a little street photography.

I don't usually shoot a lot of street but with the Sony A7r it's just too easy. It really helps having that flip out screen when you're 6'3". Before I would always have to bend down and look through the evf on my 5dmkii.

Ju-San Mairi Girl
When girls, and boys turn 13 in Japan they dress up in traditional clothing, girls wear the kimono in with the adult cut. 
They visit temples for "worship of knowledge" and "receive knowledge."

31 Days In Japan
I just a few days I leave for Japan for 37 days. I'll be doing something on my blog and on Google+ that I've never done before.

I'll document each day with photography.

I go to Japan every year or so, and often people have this idea of Japan based on all the craziness of Tokyo. I want to show a little bit of that, but also I really want to show more every day life in the smaller towns of Japan. It's really cool outside of Tokyo as well.

So be sure to check in regularly to G+ and I'll give you links to each day on my blog. I'm super excited!

You Know The Problem WIth Google+
The problem with google+ is, I follow so many amazing photographers, and there are always so many amazing photos coming through my stream that it's raised the bar on my own photography, making it harder for me to feel like I have a photo worth sharing. :) But I do love G+ It's really made me a better photographer for that reason.

Photo of my wife in front of a windmill in Solvang. The little Danish town near Santa Barbara California. 

Shot with the Sony A7r, processed with Lightroom and Photoshop.

I also changed the look of my blog (see the link below.) I'm about to start blogging more seriously since I'm leaving my full time job next week. Should be fun!

If there is anything anyone wants to know about how I process or shoot leave a question in the comment and I'll start posting tippers to answer those questions.

Here's a photo from Las Vegas. FYI, this is what ISO 5000 looks like on the Sony A7r. :) Didn't have my tripod with me that day. 

I updated my blog with some of my experiences shooting Landscape Photography with the Sony A7r. Hope it makes sense I've had a migraine for two days now. Yeah!

Sony A7r - Review and sample photos with RAW downloads
I've updated my Review and Sample Photos for the Sony A7r. I've also included downloadable RAW image samples you can play with in Lightroom or Photoshop. 

I've been shooting a lot with this camera and really like it. It's not perfect yet but close. I imagine they'll update it in a year or two, (knowing Sony) then it will be perfect. You'll probably see all the speed and technology of the A6000 in the next gen Sony A7r. Can't wait, although I'll probably still get this camera. 

Side note, unrelated
For some reason, and I have no idea, Google has unlisted this page from it's search Index. It's the only page on my site unlisted by them and it use to have a ton of social activity. Even a link from a High PR sites. I've done nothing shady or wrong, I've neverb... more »

Hollywood, The Sign

The legendary Hollywood sign. I see this thing every day but this was the first time I actually went up to take a landscape photo of it. It was a nice day out for photography and I had a free evening.

I'm returning to the world of freelance editing next month in hopes of getting more free time for myself and do more of my own projects. As many of you that have been following me for the years, I have not been able to be very active these last few months. I'm hoping to change that very soon. :)

The Legend People
Taken last December at Bryce Canyon Utah. This was my first time to this location and I had no idea what to expect. It's actually really cool. That whole area of Utah is amazing. I highly recommend it. The pillar structures are called Hoodoos by the Indians and the story is they are Legend people who turned to stone as punishment for bad deeds.

Road Through Zion
This was my first time to Zion and I really had no idea what to expect. I didn't do any research or previous scouting. Just kind of showed up to see what it was all about.

I found this place to be unbelievably epic and massive. You really need to spend a few days there to grasp how great this place is. Something I'll be planning very soon, hopefully in Autumn when this place transforms into a photographers dream land. I'll be hiking the Narrows!

Valley of Fire - Fire Cave
Discovered this spot last week. Never knew about it until I randomly saw another photographer post a photo from the Valley of Fire. It's only about an hour out of Las Vegas Nevada and the place is very very cool. I'll definitely be going back to shoot really soon. The 1 hour I had there was awesome.

I've posted on my blog exactly how to get to the fire cave and some more information about this location if you're interested in visiting. I would, It's a lot cooler than Vegas :)

Xmas in Venice Beach

The weather two days ago was unbelievable. There were so many people at the beach. Kind of unbelievable for late December. Although I guess this is southern California. 

Not sure if you can see it on your monitor. But when I was editing this photo I was seeing all this noise in the shadows of the pier. When I got a closer look I realized it wasn't noise at all. It was each individual barnacle. I could actually see the detail of the barnacles in the shadows. I really like this A7r.

This is a street view of the Empire State Building. Chrysler Building. I've taken so many picture of different cool buildings in New York I've lost track of what is what.

Because There Are Rays of Light
Another photo from the Lower Antelope Canyon from a few months back. Kinda got lucky with my timing while I was there. Had some great beams and great weather.

This one was taken with the Canon 5Dmkii. Still haven't really gotten a chance to do much photography with the Sony A7r yet. Been shooting this crazy series.

Just started Shooting / Directing a web comedy called Vantastic using primarily the Sony A7r

After shooting for a day with the Sony A7r as the A camera I was very impressed by the size and weight of the camera. On B cam we were using my old 5Dmkii, (which is still a great camera for video.) But after picking it up to adjust some settings, it just felt like it was made of lead. So heavy and bulky.

And the user interface on the Sony A7r is borderline genius. It's so smart how everything is layed out. 

I'll keep you guys posted on how it all turns out. As well as more production still. Probably won't finish production / post production till spring. 

You can read more about it on my blog. There is also newsletter you can sign up for if you want to stay updated on this kind of thing.

The Evo Bar
I stopped by Evo Kitchen in Hollywood last night to get some hot tea since it was 47 degrees outside and I was freezing. And it was probably 50 degrees in my office. You gotta understand. 47 degrees in California feels like -10. Anywhere else. :) We're just not use to this. 

I actually didn't add any post sharpness or noise reduction on this image. And it was shot at f2.8 ISO 5000.  Pretty crazy what the A7r and Zeiss lens can do.

Couple new shots from today with the Sony A7r on my review page.
I really love the screen that pops out. Makes it really easy to shoot these low angles of children.  This is my niece.

I shot some samples images of the Sony A7r tonight

I've only have had the camera for about 3-4 hours. I did a quick walk down Sawtelle to get some food and shot some photos along the way. Everything is shot at f2.8 with high ISO with the Zeiss Sonnar.

This camera and the Zeiss lens are an amazing combo. I'm blown away. It's doing thing I couldn't dream of doing with my 5dmkii in these low light conditions. 

You can click the image to see the full size and EXIF data.

My one complaint; The battery life is god awful. I used almost all of the 20% of my precharged battery in this two mile walk there and back.  Maybe 30 shots. I'm hoping a full break in helps that.

Choosing the Best SD Memory Cards for the Sony A7 and A7r

I did some research on SD memory cards the other day and did a massive write up on my findings. It took me an entire day.

The technology of this kind of stuff fascinates me. Check it out if you shoot SD cards. You'll probably find it interesting. Well maybe. I've had this crazy ulcer for the last month or so and I haven't been able to drink ridiculous amounts of caffeine like I usually do. Life has been a bit sluggish as well as my blog posts. 

It's amazing the difference a ton of caffeine makes. 

I also learned if you use a Canon 5Dmkiii you should pretty much not use the SD card slot. It runs with very old bus technology and will slow the entire system down to the speed of that bus. Even if you have a CF card in as well. I swear, they only added the SD card slot so people couldl... more »

Canon Announces EOS M2 but it will not be available in the US!
This is redonculous. If that's even a word. Focusing issues aside, I always wanted the first model of this so bad. And I was waiting for this one for awhile. I really think it's a cool camera. Oh well. I'll have my Sony A7r. :)
