SmugMug45,618Have you ever wondered how to get your photos picked up by ad agencies? How does a photographer get their foot in the door? These are questions many of us have thought about before, since photography (and ads) are everywhere we look.Well, SmugMug Pro +Alan Shapiro helped answer some of those question during a recent SmugMug podcast (bit.ly/ZsDwsb). But, we found, that the interest in this subject is off the charts, and the follow up questions for Alan have been coming in fast and furious. So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout! Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST.Have a question you would like us to ask Alan? Simply add it as a comment here, on this event. Alan will also do his best to respond to any questions we do not ask during the broadcast, right here in the Google+ event. So make sure to RSVP, and post your best question for Alan. We will even be giving away a year of SmugMug Portfolio to one lucky person who asks a question before the end of the live hangout. And yes, this will be recorded to view on our YouTube channel. #Photography #Advertising #Commercial #SmugMug #SmugMugProWhat Ad Agencies Want From You - Interested in Fashion or Commercial Photography?2013-06-12 03:00:0076

Leaner,  better, faster, wilder.  It's the only circle I share, and it's a good one. (and if you could, please look at my art and photography, that's why I do this - scroll down, I have lots of new and old good things)Thanks to everyone who looked, shared, and commented. (especially those who told me my last share could not be shared, sorry.)Special kudos out to those who not only share, but post their own good things.Some of my best work is now up for sale on http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/james-honzik.htmlThanks, everybody.Peace.

Gailen Mapes75,495Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera P-R - 20 of 31Note: 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-20 11:52:36122000

Everybody from the Essentials circle is also in here, plus everyone I noticed in other circles, who plussed or commented on my posts or who I learned to know through other people. If you're not in there, either I haven't noticed you yet or you don't fulfil my one requirement: you have to post your own work. There are only original photography content creators in here!2014-12-30 16:41:23500000
Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #1: Photography EssentialsLike at the end of last year, I want to say thanks to all the amazing people here on Google+ by sharing a few of my circles, which is easier said than done because my own circle collection is pretty chaotic. This first one is my "small" Photography circle of people I mainly found in the beginning over two years ago, although the size of this circle has doubled in the last twelve months. These are people whose posts I don't want to miss even when I don't have time to look at all the other circles. Don't be disappointed if you're not in there - there are two much bigger photo circles coming up next!2014-12-30 16:36:31269000

Dylan Cuffy17,642#WhatLiesAground And...welcome to another edition of Fab 2, where everyone's a winner and the +1's don't matter. Can't believe it's only been four days since the last update!Just so you know, I have 17,600+ followers/1,000,000+ page views at this writing (per +CircleCount). Point of no return, isn't it? (Especially since I linked up my feed to Bloglovin' early this morning.)Time to say hello to these newest additions:• +Anthony Long (founder of Tsū, the new social service; doesn't use G+, but is a honorary member of my network)• +Amelia Sides (owner of the Writing Pit)• +Rebekkah Niles (from whom I shared a beginner's guide to writing book synopses earlier this week)• +Eustacia Tan (who introduced me to +Amazon.com's WriteOn last month)• +Kimi Arista, +Micha Fire, and +Amy Knepper (whom Ms. Tan mentioned in her WriteOn post)• +All my + (whose post backlog feature is serving me well as I prepare this list; along with CircleCount, they are the only big players in town when it comes to G+ stats these days. Say, is anyone planning to resurrect Google Plus Suomi anytime soon—and buy back the domain?)• +Stephan Klimmeck (who keeps track of circle creators; you can thank +P. Mehta for bringing him to my attention. Here's hoping this update is enough for Mr. Klimmeck to add me to his next one.)• +Rex Dow (who shows up on Tsū very often)• +2014-11-15 20:50:134003210

Tyson's (my 12 year old son) phone died the other day so he has no way to text his friends
So this morning he included my number into a group chat 
to stay in touch with his friends 
because they are all meeting at "the mall" on Sunday…

That… was a mistake.

I have been sending random photos like this…
in the middle of their conversations all day. 
I am cracking myself UP!
HE is now calling me "mother".
roflmao!

(this round's judges were +Scott Jarvie, +Ron Clifford, +Robin Griggs Wood, +Les Imgrund, and our winner from last round, +Carla McMahon.

I then open the albums up to the public - every day over the course of 10 days. 
We are doing things differently this round due to technical difficulties - all albums will be revealed and THEN all winners announced at the end.
There are 10 categories:
This is the 10TH - the ABSTRACT album. See my profile page for previous reveals - the "WHEN YOU SEE IT", "ANIMALS ARE AWESOME", "LETTER C", "AUTUMN COLOURS", "FUNNY FACE", "GHOST", "ROMANCE", "CANDY" and "WITCH" albums.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the ABSTRACT album,
1 item seen in 293 different ways.

(this round's judges were +Scott Jarvie, +Robin Griggs Wood, +Ron Clifford, +Les Imgrund , and our winner from last round, +Carla McMahon!

I then open the albums up to the public - every day over the course of 10 days. 
We are doing things differently this round due to technical difficulties - all albums will be revealed and THEN all winners announced at the end.
There are 10 categories:
This is the 8TH - the ANIMALS ARE AWESOME album. See my profile page for previous reveals - the "LETTER C", "AUTUMN COLOURS", "FUNNY FACE", "GHOST", "ROMANCE", "CANDY" and "WITCH" albums.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the ANIMALS ARE AWESOME album,
1 item seen in 236 different ways.

One of the greatest things about Christmas is digging thru the bins and finding things that you cherish every year… 

but somehow, they get forgotten once they're packed up.

This santa… well… I am in love with this Santa.

This santa was MADE by my Mommy,
and he sat on our fireplace every. single. year. while I was growing up.

I'm not even sure WHY I have him (ha ha Billy, Im the favourite)
but I have him,
and every year I just hold him and study him and look at that engraved year in his foot and wonder what led to him being…
well…. him being.

I was 1 in 1975.
My brother was 2.
And my Mom somehow found the time to create this…

One of the greatest things about Christmas is digging thru the bins and finding things that you cherish every year… 

but somehow, they get forgotten once they're packed up.

This santa… well… I am in love with this Santa.

This santa was MADE by my Mommy,
and he sat on our fireplace every. single. year. while I was growing up.

I'm not even sure WHY I have him (ha ha Billy, Im the favourite)
but I have him,
and every year I just hold him and study him and look at that engraved year in his foot and wonder what led to him being…
well…. him being.

I was 1 in 1975.
My brother was 2.
And my Mom somehow found the time to create this…
well it's the most cherished symbol of Christmas I own.
I LOVE my family.
I LOVE my traditions, even tho they seem to change every year. This…
the getting the decorations out of the bins…
this is truly my favourite time of the year.___

Leaving the white, snow-fillled prairies to the southern tip of the state of Arizona did great things for my heart last week.
But it also makes me wish the border was open for all to live in in paradise! (well, MY idea of paradise, anyway)
I want IN, USA! Do you hear me?! ;)

I have been doing interior photography for quite awhile now.
I get the absolute pleasure of being invited into homes at their best.
I've often said that I always feel like people clean especially well before I come visit! Just for me! ;)
The homes I have been in have often wowed me - 
but this… this holy crap bar… I literally swooned.

He makes me proud every day, and I can't believe I made him from scratch.

My kids, Tyson and Grayden are both in a Read-A-Thon this week!!

Over the 7 days they are encouraged to gather pledges and record their reading minutes and for every $5.00 pledge collected, then they get entered into a draw for a few gifts.

Now... most of those I care about know my youngest son, Grayden has recently been diagnosed with dyslexia. So reading is a pretty big deal to get him excited about. And to add another incentive for him (and you) the top prize is an Ipad - which we were just told we need to buy him for his specialized IPP (individualized program planning) program for him to gain some success in school.

And to add another incentive for him (and you) the top prize is an Ipad - which we were just told we need to buy him for his specialized IPP (individualized program planning) program for him to gain some success in school.  

*So, it's not just an Ipad - there is a tech team meeting with us next week, and they will be designing the iPad just for Grayden - so he can scan his assignments, and the ipad will read the questions/writing to him, and he will be able to speak into it to answer everything. He's got the information in his brain, it's there, he just can't get the letters straight to be able to read or write. The confidence level will sky rocket being able to do it by himself, as right now... he has an aid who sits with him who reads to him and scribes for him. It helps him in school... but it also makes him feel stupid - having an aid - and he is far from stupid, he just gets letters mixed up.

Dyslexia - in my best explanation - is that the brain is basically in two parts: the library and the art room. Information should go into the library, and stored neatly in files and folders. But Grayden's library is kinda... out of order, so the art room tries to hold the information. And we all know art is chaos. So he has an awful time with memory, and any new word he learns that he can't picture in his head. Words like... well... "the". How can you put the word "the" into a picture in your head?

In no way do I want this to be a sob story - but the amount of money his Dad and I have dished out on private tutors and Sylvan Learning over the last 5 years is pretty astronomical.  

Winning the Ipad would be just... well huge, because he could EARN IT HIMSELF BY READING, the very thing we are trying so very hard to get him to be able to do.

I vow to you, that we will have him read every night of the Read-A-Thon, and we will do it by inspiring him with each pledge made for him to let him know just how many people belive in him. 

Of course, his older brother wants to help, so I will split the money between the two of them, and we will try to get Grayden an iPad!

I don't ask for much - and I'm only looking for a $5 pledge, as each $5.00 pledge will get him entered. 

Let's get this kid his super-powered Ipad and give him back his confidence!!___

I also have to pass on the challenge to someone else, if they so desire, each day I post my image.

So today I nominate +Mike F Shaw  to come play with me!!!

This is how I created my PERFECT SUMMER’S DAY shot for the +Chrysta Rae  Scavenger Hunt

First I must say that I did NOT create this photo in as organised manner as it may sound. I did not first get the background right, then add the subject, then add the butterflies, then the texture. I jumped around and adjusted different layers as I went along and went back and forth like that many times.

But for explanation purposes I will focus on one area at a time.

The background - it was a single exposure that I processed in LR. Then in PS I brightened the background, by duplicating and changing the blend mode to screen. I am sure there are many ways to do it and maybe that wasn’t the best. But everything I do is trial and error. I try something and if I like it, I keep it, if not I deleter it.
I also cloned out some of the bigger distracting darker grass mounds (I only did that after my daughter and all the butterflies were in place)

My daughter - I tried to shoot her with the light coming from the same direction as the background
To get her colour to match the colour in the background, I duplicated the background layer.
Created an average blur layer (Filter - Blur - average)
I moved that layer on top of Kelli and then clipped it to her layer so that it only affected her (Alt and click between the two layers)
I changed that layer to overlay and reduced the opacity until it looked okay. 

The butterflies -I printed different shapes and sizes of butterflies from the internet, and then my daughter and I spent one evening painting them all. 
Each butterfly was photographed separately at different angles and then extracted from the background in photoshop. 
I tried to get a decent swirl effect around my daughter using the brush tool. I drew it 100s of times to make the line look like it was swirling around her. and I just couldn’t get it right.
Then I started adding butterflies (the fun part) using the line for guidance.
I did duplicate quite a few of the butterflies but most of them were individually photographed. 
(The bottom right picture on the butterfly picture is a file I created of all the extracted butterflies each on a separate layer in case I ever want to use them again). 
I blurred the butterflies that were further away and I tried to match the focus of the butterfly with the focus of the background - depending where about they were. (something I did not achieve properly)


I love this picture and it is my favourite from this hunt but I am also not happy with it (technically) as I don’t think the butterflies are positioned in the right place, or sized correctly or even blurred correctly. But I still have my file with all the butterfly layers I may go back and tweak it sometime. ___Most of you know what the +Chrysta Rae Scavenger Hunt IS…

Judging is not easy - especially with this bunch of people, so from the bottom of my heart… thank you for giving back to our photography community.

And most of all - I THANK YOU. my scavengers. Without you, this would not happen. Thank you to each and every one of you who signed up, and then took the time to actually play with me. YOU are the hunt. You create the community atmosphere, you inspire and teach and support one another… YOU are the hunt. 

And I will do this, time after time as long as you want the play. 
I love you so much.___
