Daria Musk3,507,984Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams.That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III. PLEASE, BE CELEBRATEDSo please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again.I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.  HOW TO HANGIn case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is: ✪ RSVP a big fat yes here.✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time).✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page +Daria Musk!✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time.

We'll then wind our way through to Covent Garden where we'll be able to get some excellent chances at street photography. We'd love it if you'd dawdle with us on our March walk through parts of inner London, laugh at bad jokes and catch up with old acquaintances and hopefully make some new ones. We look forward to walking, talking and shooting with you!Quiet London - Monumental Monument!2013-03-02 14:00:0030

Photowalks London39,442Join us on our November Photowalk, the 1st Anniversary Edition!It all started October last year when Helena Martins decided to organised a Photowalk for work colleagues  with the intent of raising money for Action on Hearing Loss. At the same time, there were a few people on G+ wishing to meet up for a Photowalk, so it was only natural for Helena to take the plunge and organise one on G+The first Photowalks London was a duo effort between Helena Martins and Gerard Charnley, the stage? The very picturesque area of Canary Wharf. After such success and demand for more, Helena decided to start organise one Photowalk in London, at least, once a month. East London; Bank; Wimbledon, Portobello and Battersea are a few of the areas visited by the group.This anniversary edition will be visiting Camden Town, not only part of the market, but also a few interesting areas less known in this London pocket where the Punk movement started.We would love to see many, many, many people on this edition: the ones that we see almost every month; those who come only once or twice, those you recently joined us for the first time and those who have never come to a Photowalk and always wanted to come along!Let's break our record of 87 Photowalkers and make this edition the biggest G+ Photowalk in London!!!  We'll end up, as usual, in the Pub and this time will be in The Worlds End for a Happy Birthday toast to Photowalks London.Photowalk 1st Anniversary Edition2012-11-24 14:00:0041

Gailen Mapes67,369Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-09-02 10:32:301406416

Busted

I'm finding my current DSLR setup a bit too obvious sometimes. Not always bad to catch your subject looking at the camera, as long as they don't have time to react, but sometimes you lose the shot.

I love my Canon 17-55 f/2.8 lens for quality but it is rather big, and my 500D must be 6 years old - still working fine but has a few battlescars. I also find the combination too heavy to carry everywhere - I want something smaller and lighter.

I've been looking at mirrorless cameras over the last year or so, they seem to have come a long way and are now competitive in quality with DLSRs but win on size and weight.

So I've just placed an order for a Fuji X-T1, which seems to meet my requirements. Can't wait for it to arrive! :-)

Black & blue

Today it stopped raining and blowing, seems like the first time in months. So we grabbed the kids, bikes and camera and headed to Black Park Country Park. We nearly didn't make it as the GPS tried to take us through Pinewood Studios and then we had no change for the car park. But we did get there and it was worth it.

This is my first real use of luminosity masks in processing, I kinda like them.

Penarth Pier

Penarth Pier near Cardiff has been the subject of extensive renovation, completed last year. The wikipedia entry seems a little out of date http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penarth_Pier and could do with some renovation too.

I'm not sure why there's a cloud rabbit over the pier ;-)

Weybourne

This is a view over the village of Weybourne on the North Norfolk coast, looking out to the North Sea. The beach is out of shot here but I do have a bunch of images of it waiting to be processed.

I actually have about 3000 recent images to work through, since I also sneaked in another holiday in Pembrokeshire. I really could do with streamlining my processing workflow! Or maybe I just need another week off work :-)

Wells-Next-The-Sea 1

On the very flat North coast of Norfolk Wells-Next-The-Sea is not actually very close to the sea at low tide. There's a couple of miles of sand and a shallow channel between them.

This is from the quay in the town, with the tide ebbing.

Kelling Heath, Norfolk

I had a week away camping in Norfolk, this was about a minute from the tent.

There was a good bit of time to play with my X-T1 and I'm getting more used to handling it and learning how it performs. I'm mainly using aperture priority and a mix of manual and auto focus. I find it does tend to blow out skies a little so often use a bit of exposure compensation (which is very easy as there's a big dial for it), I just need to get used to looking at the histogram before capture to see if it's set right.

I do find (which a lot of others have already found) that Lightroom doesn't do the best job on getting details out of the RAW files. I struggle to get as much detail as the JPEGs produced by the camera. Some people are using other RAW converters to get round this issue.

I'm hopeful that Adobe will improve their performance and I suspect I will actually use the JPEGs unless I need to do major shifts in exposure or white balance. For this image I did use the RAW as I knew I wanted to work on the sky (luminosity masks) and I don't really mind if there's a touch less detail on the distant trees.

Getting to know Fuji X-T1

My first post about my X-T1 experience and my first posted image from it.

The purchase didn't go smoothly. The courier used was City Link but I didn't realise until after ordering. City Link don't deliver to my house. Their tracking shows they try to deliver and leave cards to contact them, but no cards are left and I suspect they don't even try to deliver. So nearly a week after ordering I had an hour's drive to the depot to collect it. Then on getting it home there was no battery in the box, so another day waiting for one to be posted to me.

Anyway, early impressions. The X-T1 is small and light compared to a DSLR, though it feels solid. Controls and feel are very different to Canon, it's taking me time to adjust and it certainly doesn't feel natural to me. Yet.

Anyway, early impressions. The X-T1 is small and light compared to a DSLR, though it feels solid. Controls and feel are very different to Canon, it's taking me time to adjust and it certainly doesn't feel natural to me. Yet.

Things I like. The size (around half the weight I'm used to), the control dials (once I get used to them), the EVF display with lots of info (though for some reason the ergonomics seem to be wanting me to use my left eye - which I've not done before), the high ISO capability, the JPEGs (I've barely touch the settings for them though - this flower was shot on Provia and should probably have been Velvia), the manual focus assistance.

Things I like less. The battery life (when they start to go, they go quick so you need to carry a spare), the supplied strap (I'm currently trying a wrist strap instead), the back button focus which doesn't deactivate the shutter-release focus, the geotagging over WiFi (which is just rubbish - I'll stick to recording a track on my iPhone and synching in Lightroom). None of these are show-stoppers.

So, I think I like it but it's going to take some time and effort to really feel comfortable with it. I intend to shoot a lot over the next few weeks, so it should become more natural.



This image is a SOOC JPEG, hand-held, looking down and using manual focus. I would struggle to nail this with my Canon, but the focus peaking really helped.

Museum window

This is a window of the Museum of London. I love the mixtures you can get of looking through glass combined with reflections. Glimpses, hints, separations and conjunctions. I also shot the 3 main people here directly but the result was much less interesting.

I think this is something I'd like to explore more.

Busted

I'm finding my current DSLR setup a bit too obvious sometimes. Not always bad to catch your subject looking at the camera, as long as they don't have time to react, but sometimes you lose the shot.

I love my Canon 17-55 f/2.8 lens for quality but it is rather big, and my 500D must be 6 years old - still working fine but has a few battlescars. I also find the combination too heavy to carry everywhere - I want something smaller and lighter.

I've been looking at mirrorless cameras over the last year or so, they seem to have come a long way and are now competitive in quality with DLSRs but win on size and weight.

So I've just placed an order for a Fuji X-T1, which seems to meet my requirements. Can't wait for it to arrive! :-)

Somerset House

Gatehouse entrance to Somerset House, on the Strand, London. Lovely light coming in from the courtyard. In an anti-HDR way I'm happy this goes from blown-out highlights to solid blacks.

The keen-eyed among you may spot a G+ photographer in the background :-)

Wedding

Another from Saturday's photowalk. A wedding was taking place at St Dunstan-in-the-West on Fleet Street. Apparently it shares strong associations with both the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers and the Romanian Orthodox Church. No idea if the wedding was related to either of those but I was happy the bride turned round for this shot as they were heading in.

Holborn viaduct

Apparently the first flyover in central London, built in the 1860s. Farringdon Road is below and somewhere the River Fleet too - though that went underground long ago.

The statue represents Fine Art and is one of 4 on the bridge.

Fleet Street

Went on my first photowalk for a while on Saturday. From Charing Cross up the Strand and Fleet Street, then through to the Museum of London for an exhibit on 1950s Street Photography (Observing the Crowd).

The walk was organised by +George Griffin (thanks George!) and was a good day, despite the odd shower.

This is Fleet Street looking towards the Gherkin. Had to be quick for this one as, yes, I was standing in the middle of the road.

This is an orchard in Waterperry Gardens, near Oxford.

Sad to hear about the death of Tony Benn. He was one of our great political thinkers who always seemed honest and to actually care. He certainly had an influence on my political beliefs.

We could do with more politicians like him

Open for submissions.

Just have to decide on my best photo from last year...

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Who can get published? Anyone! We hope to get as many submissions as possible. Due to the volume, we can’t publish them all, but we will publish as many as we can. 

Is there a theme this year? Yes, there is. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World” and the book will be split into three sections - “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”. You can interpret it however you’d like - we’d love to see how you express these. 

Do we accept color or B&W images? Either one is great.

How can you submit the work? Here are simple instructions: 

1 - Download and fill out image release form from here - http://goo.gl/brpX6n (you can even scan it using your phone, or use apps such as SignNow or TurboScan)
2 - Fill out the information about yourself and upload your work here - http://form.jotform.us/form/40565430045144
3 - Upload your submission to Google+, and tag it with #PlusOneCollectionIII tag 

Can you submit more than one image? Sure! You can submit first image for free. To submit three images to all three themes, or even three images to one theme (which increases your chances to get published), please make a small donation of $20 to our charitable cause (again, all of that will be donated with the book proceeds). Here’s the link to donate via PayPal - http://goo.gl/OSwT9k

Will you showcase all the submissions? Yes. All submissions will show up in the SmugMug gallery we will setup in the next day or two. Please allow 48 hours for your photo to appear there. 

When will you announce which images made it into the book? We will announce it in early April. 

The last day to submit your images is March 17!

Please help us spread the world about this by sharing this post. 

Questions? Leave them in the comments. ___Open for submissions.

Black & blue

Today it stopped raining and blowing, seems like the first time in months. So we grabbed the kids, bikes and camera and headed to Black Park Country Park. We nearly didn't make it as the GPS tried to take us through Pinewood Studios and then we had no change for the car park. But we did get there and it was worth it.

This is my first real use of luminosity masks in processing, I kinda like them.

A time for reflection

The last day of the year is always a time to reflect and to start to look forward.

2013 wasn't a bad year. It feels a bit transitional to me and G+ has been a large part of that for me. I've found some new friends though a few others have fallen away. I've been feeling more creative and finding some directions to explore - which can't be bad.

I'm not really one for New Year Resolutions but I already have some projects to lead me forward and it feels like there may be more out there waiting to be discovered. I feel optimistic about 2014 :)

This image is of the Grand Union Canal in Berkhamsted. Canals have played a significant part in my life so it seems fitting. Monochrome has become more important to my photography, so I couldn't post colour for this one. Also, plenty of reflections and journeys going on here... more »

It's the time of year for reflection, closure and renewal. For 2013 I've been part of the +52 Shades of Gray community. Established by +Charles Lupica this has been a space to explore develop and learn about monochrome photography. It proved to be an effective learning environment where we shared, critiqued and developed our skills.

I learned a lot about in camera composition and the technical side of processing images but more importantly I've learned about Vision. Having a concept of the final image and the knowledge of the techniques available to try to achieve that. I've also learned that it's OK to take time to find your Vision and bring it out in an image.

I'd like to thank all my fellow moderators for the group +Charles Lupica  +Brian Cox, +Brian Dukes, +Jean Michel Missri, +Ludwig Keck, +Nancy Attwater, +Scott Thomas and +Travis Rhoads; also my fellow participants who have all contributed to the experience.  

This is my final image for the 2013 version of the community. It forms the latest part of a series that I wouldn't have started without the group. High-key landscapes, aiming to have something of a sketched look. I'm still exploring different techniques for producing these and the style is not yet final, but getting there.

This is an image of Shardeloes House, now an equestrian centre. The sun was actually low behind the house which stands at the top of a rise. I managed to find a position with the oak tree framing the house, while the house blocked the direct sun. Due to the harsh backlighting I shot a 3 exposure bracket of images, 1EV apart.

Basic lens correction and straightening was done in LR5 followed by importing into the HDR Pro module in Photoshop CC. Images were combined using a modified photorealistic preset - especially drastically reducing the HDR glow effect. The combined image was cropped to taste.

I created a layer in Silver Efex Pro 2, based on a high key preset, but with fiddling on the sliders and control points on the house to prevent it disappearing. I also created a separate layer in Color Efex Pro based on the bleach bypass filter. This was overlayed on the high key monochrome version using screen blend mode. I then flattened the image and took it back into Silver Efex Pro and used a high structure preset modified a little, to enhance the details further. Finally in PS I used curves adjustments to finalise the tonal levels and a touch of high-pass filter for slight sharpening.

The 2014 version of the community is just launching as +256 Shades of Gray. I'm looking forward to continuing the journey and meeting the new people that are joining the ride.___

Monochrome photography development opportunity

A year ago I joined a G+ community, founded by +Charles Lupica , to develop my monochrome photography. Over the year I've learned a lot about how to compose, process and bring out my vision in images. The community has also been very active and supportive for its members.

The community was always intended to run for 52 weeks and is now coming to an end - but a new community is springing from the ashes. I will still be involved but this time as one of the time of moderators.

Sign-up is now open, see below and visit the original post. I'm closing comments here so sign-ups go in one place only.

A year is a long commitment but if you think this might be for you I urge you to read more and consider joining us.

It's here!

52 Shades of Gray
2014 Black & White photography workshop sign-up. 

People wishing to join the community should read this post in it's entirety.

 After reading this post, if you're interested in being considered for membership, leave a comment that answers the questions found at the bottom of this post. There is a limited number of spaces available so please answer the questions completely. 

What is 52 Shades of Gray ?
52 Shades of Gray 2014 is a learning community that stresses a high level of participation.  We share our work and offer critique to each other.  We share detailed explanations of our workflow, our vision for an image and our thought processes.  Some might call this a mentorship program but we like to think of it as a journey of discovery that we take together. 

This is a special, private community for people interested in improving their Black and White photography through the exploration of form, shape, contrast, negative space, attention to detail, composition, post-processing, the Digital Zone System and more.  

The     #52ShadesOfGray  program is a series of assignments and workshops designed to help you see the world around you.  To discover more, to see more, to search the light and the dark.  In short we hope to improve your sense of the world around you, to help you develop your skills as a photographer and to help you find your vision.   The program will last the whole year.  52 Shades of Gray is now about to launch its second year. The project includes lessons, assignments, informal discussions, hangouts, and recorded tutorials. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!  52 Shades of Gray is brought to you by a team of dedicated moderators and teachers.  

PLEASE READ THIS:  Monochrome Photography requires post-processing so,  post processing is a part of the assignments. It's recommended that you have Lightroom, Photoshop, and the #nikcollection  or similar software. This isn't a post-processing workshop as such but, creating your vision in B&W will be a lot easier if you have these programs.  This workshop is to help you take more remarkable photographs by helping you to see the hidden world around you, and to help you increase your understanding of basic and advanced photography / art principles.

The 52 Shades of Gray community is private so that you can explore your vision without it being visible to the public.  The only work shared to G+ is the work you choose to share.

What to expect
52SOG is an assignment based workshop.   During the year there will be approximately 40 assignments requiring new photography.  Some assignments may last more than a week but most will be one week long.  New assignments are posted on Friday.  In addition to 40 assignments, there will be 6 weeks where the assignment is a recap of the more recent unit.

52SOG requires a high level of commitment. 
This means that you will need to spend several hours a week taking images, processing those images, preparing your post, and critiquing the images posted by other community members.

Participation
The heart of 52SOG is participation.  Life is such that no one is expected to participate every week but, inactive members may be asked to resign from the community.  Please don't ask to join if you can't dedicate several hours per week to this journey of discovery. 

What 52SOG is not
• It's not a photography theme. You can't just dump a photo on the
 community and leave.  

• It's not a Project 52.  Most of the time there won't be a specific
 subject to shoot.  It's more concept based. You won't get a lot of
 oohs and aahs and flattery. You will get a lot of honest critique. 
 
• 52 Shades of Gray is not part of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers,
 by +Robin Griggs Wood +Tamara Pruessner and +Ron Clifford but,
 +Charles Lupica owes Robin a debt of gratitude for his participation in
 Robin's mentorshipfor mentors program.  The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is a great program so check it out. 

• 52 Shades of Gray is not a technical Photography workshop, it's not
 "Paintography". 

══════════════════════════════════════

These are the selection criteria:
• You must be taking and posting photographs regularly on G+, B&W is
 a plus.
• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to
 participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
 Taking part in this program will require you to interact with other
 community members.  
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop and will
 commit to the program knowing that it is expected to take place
 throughout the coming year. No one can be expected to participate
 for all 52 weeks; but that is the goal.
 
Please let us know that you're interest in being chosen to participate in 52 Shades of Gray 2014 by answering the following questions in a comment.

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most (especially for B&W conversion)
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph 
4) Aspirations for your B&W photography
5) Amount of time you have available for participation

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CS5, Silver Efx Pro, Photomatix
3) Street, landscapes, waterscapes
4) To improve the impact of my images and move beyond snapper with a camera.
7) I hope to be able to participate for all 52 weeks but family, vacation, and work may occasionally get in the way. When they do, I'll try to catch-up as much as I can. 

▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀
NOTICE! … The selections will be made quickly and the program will begin in January 2014. The first assignment will be full of information about getting set up for the program. It will also include an assignment to shoot a new selfie.

NOTE: there will be assignments most weeks and it is expected that all images will be taken during the assignment period unless otherwise noted.

Sign-up is now open, see below and visit the original post. I'm closing comments here so sign-ups go in one place only.

A year is a long commitment but if you think this might be for you I urge you to read more and consider joining us.

Going with the flow

So I've finally given in and signed up for Adobe Creative Cloud. The current deal for Photoshop and Lightroom subscription is probably as good as it will get.

It doesn't really add anything to the software I already owned but it is the only way to be able to access upgrades for Photoshop in future. So it's an investment (or a gamble).

I don't completely trust Adobe not to hike the price in a few years time, so I will keep an eye on alternative software and maitain an exit strategy. Similarly if Adobe fail to innovate I'd be prepared to jump ship for something better.

Two of the extras that come with CC are accounts at Behance and Prosite. I don't really know what I should do with those, if anything! Suggestions anyone?

Layers of London

My friend +Léa Jay says I've been neglecting to post London images, so here's one I prepared earlier :-)

Any layers you can see here were captured in camera with a single shot. Who needs multiple exposures and composite images when you can have glass and reflections?

It is, of course, the South Bank.

Chasing butterflies

A charming piece of street art in the Old Town of Nice. No idea how long it had been there.

Rooftop conversation

Loved the rooftops and balconies in Nice. Here some neighbours were chatting, about 4 floors up.
