However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116935056

The Ultimate Guide to Long Exposure photography - 2014 edition

I just released the tutorial the Ultimate Guide to Long exposure Photography - 2014 edition on my website: http://www.bwvision.com/ultimate-guide-long-exposure-photography/
If you’ve followed me over the years then you will know that back in 2009 I posted the 2009 edition of the Ultimate guide as one of the very first on the Internet to give you a hands-on insight to long exposure photography for free. Many others have followed over the years, so it’s time to come up with an updated and more extensive 2014 version of this Ultimate Guide.
The 10-stop myth and The 5MF8™ LE Rule ? Read about it in this new updated tutorial. You won't read it anywhere else. Except for on my website and even more extensively in the upcoming book "From Basics to Fine Art" that I'm writing with co-author +Julia AnnaGospo... more »

ATTITUDE
“Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherf**ker who plays it is 80 percent.” 
― Miles Davis

Miles has a way with words:) But he's dead on. Being good is not good enough - your attitude and personality play an important part on your way to achieving success, if that's what you aim for. Who you really are, shines through in your art and how you communicate it.
The same goes for any other form of art or other skill. It's your attitude that separates you from the rest not your skills or equipment.

Here's a quick shot in between my more thematic work and projects, from the Rockefeller Center of the Empire State building. Shot it with the Fuji X100, nothing special but what a great little camera. Processed it with a Topaz preset, and applied my new iSGM 2.0 to it that I will introduce at the New York Cityworksh... more »

Rotterdam Streets 1
The colour challenge for b&w photographers on Facebook has come to an end but still posting some colour work. (I will post those colour photos here on G+ too btw) Now in a completely different genre: street photography.
This one’s inspired by Magnum photographer Trent Parke who uses harsh low sunlight to isolate his subjects and deliberately underexposing the shadow parts. Check out some of his masterful (colour and B&W) work here: http://www.magnumphotos.com/C.aspx?VP3=CMS3&VF=MAGO31_10_VForm&ERID=24KL534BCY and http://www.stillsgallery.com.au/artists/parke/index.php?obj_id=series_06

Self-promotion or self-sacrifice?:))
I just started a B&W fine art and fine-art architecture photography group/community on 500PX.com. So if anyone’s interested, you’re free to join. But there’s a big but (the one with 1 t not 2 t’s) and that is that I as an owner/moderator have absolutely no control over the group. I can basically do nothing other than setting up this group and inviting people. Which is a big let down. Two years ago I started something similar on Google+ and I now have the largest B&W only community on Google+ but the limited control I have there as an admin makes moderating it nearly impossible and anyone can just post spam, which they also do because people like to irritate me for some reason. The only photo sharing site where groups and communities are of any use is still flickr where you do have control as an admin. Apart from this rant: you’re stillinvited t... more »

Two vertically shifted images shot with the 24mm TS-E lens, stitched.
Each image shot with the new +Formatt-Hitech  Filters Firecrest 16 stops IRND filters, no stacking.
Exposure time: 241 seconds for each image @f/8.0
The next photos in my Visual Acoustics architecture series will all be shot with the new Formatt-Hitech Firecrest 16 stops IRND filters. Why? I already wrote a review on that a few weeks ago on my blog, and I can tell you again that there’s no colour cast at all, not even when shooting in poor light conditions and that the accuracy is very high and that there’s no vignetting with the circular filters, simply because they’re so thin and you don’t need to stack, but I’m not going to say that again. Just look at all the other reviews by independent photographers or read my review:http://www... more »

The unbearable lightness of being (serious:)
A new profile image. Self portrait taken with the Canon 5D MK iii using the Camranger.
On a side-note: I’ve been shooting new work with the Firecrest 16 stops the past weeks and I know that I am considered to be biased since my name is on the filter kits from +Formatt-Hitech  but trust me when I say these are the best ND filters in the world at this moment with incredible neutrality. And I’m not saying that lightly. I never post, let alone say things lightly:) Just look at me: I'm always very serious! And check out a blogpost I will do later this week with some more photos to see for yourself. If you are a serious long exposure photographer and you don’t have this filter then you’re missing out on some essential equipment.

A small quote from the review: “From Basics To Fine Art is by far the most complete and well written book on photography that I have read in years. At over 400 pages, I would not say it is an easy read, but more of an educational one. There is no fluff here. It is the quintessential ‘Start at the beginning and continue until you get to the end’ type of book. (…) From Basics To Fine Art is a must read for anyone who is looking to make their way into the world of fine art.“___

The New Formatt Hitech Filters Firecrest 16 stops IRND filter is the New Black (glass) - a review on the new Firecrest ND filter

Recently +Formatt-Hitech released the first 16 stops filter in the world and I tested it. I had previously tested the 8 stops Firecrest filter in New York City and was already impressed by its neutrality. And I was curious to see how the 16 stops Firecrest would perform. Well, short conclusion: I’m very much impressed! But have a look at the review yourself, download all the RAW files of the test shots and draw your own conclusions. I personally am now only using the Firecrest solution.

Tips & Tricks 2 - Light leakage, how to prevent it.
Light leakage is something most long exposure photographers will encounter and most of them will blame the camera, filter or lens. Well, blame yourself. Buy simple cheap black tape and tape off not only your viewfinder, but any opening, any crack that can leak light. Including your tilt-shift lens. If you want to shoot better photos, start with yourself. Read more here.

Light leakage is something most long exposure photographers will encounter and most of them will blame the camera, filter or lens. Well, blame yourself. Buy simple cheap black tape and tape off not only your viewfinder, but any opening, any crack that can leak light. Including your tilt-shift lens. If you want to shoot better photos, start with yourself. Read more here.

Exploring vision - Mastering Shadows
Photography is often regarded as the art of light, but in my upcoming video tutorial Exploring Vision (a pre-sale with a special discount has started on http://www.exploringvision.com/ ) I will demonstrate that the mastery over light is actually determined by your understanding and mastery of using and manipulating shadows to your advantage. Photography is a game of light, but what we really see is determined by shadows. A video in collaboration with cinematographer +Armand Dijcks

ATTITUDE
“Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherf**ker who plays it is 80 percent.” 
― Miles Davis

Miles has a way with words:) But he's dead on. Being good is not good enough - your attitude and personality play an important part on your way to achieving success, if that's what you aim for. Who you really are, shines through in your art and how you communicate it.
The same goes for any other form of art or other skill. It's your attitude that separates you from the rest not your skills or equipment.

Here's a quick shot in between my more thematic work and projects, from the Rockefeller Center of the Empire State building. Shot it with the Fuji X100, nothing special but what a great little camera. Processed it with a Topaz preset, and applied my new iSGM 2.0 to it that I will introduce at the New York Cityworksh... more »

iSGM 2.0 will include my current selective gradient masking methods, integrated with older methods like luminosity masking to give you even more control over all aspects in a B&W image. Furthermore, my new method is built around my Rule of Grays, you can read about it here: http://www.bwvision.com/the-rule-of-grays-tm-or-the-10-commandments-of-good-bw-photography/ This way you will not only have the "how" but also the "why" to creating great b&w photographs. Good attitude huh? 
And no, I didn't shoot this with my preferred IRND filters, but still you can order them here: http://formatt-hitech.com/affiliates/Tjintjelaar
And yes, I processed it with my current iSGM method, that you can learn about here https://sites.fastspring.com/fototv/instant/longexposureworkflow — in New York, NY, United States.___

Long exposure photography at that time has always been something mysterious and magical that only pro photographers knew how to utilise. It is more mainstream now, in part due to this series of tutorials from mid 2009. So keep an eye on what I will publish more in the next weeks!___
