Matt Shalvatis21,054#50FFF - Support your fellow photographers.  Please share!Here are 50 (or so) photographers who have posted something within the last week that has got my attention.  I gathered these from my stream, weekly photo themes, some photo communities, and random postings I stumbled upon.  Regular photography, HDR Photography, Paintography, and some other photos of interest.And that is my criteria for this circle.  They got my attention.  Well, OK, there is just a bit more.  • I checked their streams to make sure they’ve posted a few other photos in the last week.  But they don’t have to be all photos, all the time.• Made sure the best I could that the photos were their own. • Made sure they are lesser known photographers.  The well known ones don’t need more promotion. • Nothing unusually strange or bizarre in their streams.  If you’d like to be considered for the next weekly circle, post a comment below and share this circle.  This guarantees that I will look at your stream.  It does not guarantee inclusion in the next circle.  Get my attention, and you're included! This circle will be all new every week.   2013-02-15 17:42:5551511CC G+

84 Seconds of Terror

This Image was made while walking along the #embarcadero  in #sanfrancisco  a few nights ago.
As I walked along I saw those pilings and thought to myself mmm what about a leading line type photo towards the #ferrybuilding  . So my camera attached to my tripod (RRS L Plate and RRS Clamp) I placed the camera on Bulb and held the tripod in position on the cement railing for 84sec.
The camera about a foot away and above the bay. Longest and most nerve wrecking seconds in my life. 
(Behind the scenes Image a few post back)

Winding Drive

This Image was made a few weeks back during a walk around Coit Tower after sunset. The best way to capture it was strait on, which meant I stood in the road (middle of the road) ;) I was there for a few hours as it took a second (long second) to figure out the right amount of time needed as well as traffic consistency. During this time a  crowd had gathered around me wanting to see my camera screen and so it took even longer and I missed my last Bart and had to take a expensive Taxi ride home.

Roll of Fog

This Image was made during my last #fog venture sometime around 0300h at #eastbeach   #crissyfield  in #sanfrancisco  It was pretty spectacular to see the fog rolling under the #goldengatebridge  as the moon was setting from this vantage point.

After not having seeing the #fog  since my SD trip I was extremely happy when I saw the web cams a few days ago. So as a #fogaholic  I naturally wandered out in the middle of the night. For #sunrise   well I ended up in #marinheadlands  where I finally got the Image that I had been chasing for, its not a 100% what I wanted but it was awesome none the less. I have become pretty picky ;)

I was joined by +Joe Azure +David Safanda +Matt Walker and Mark Lilly for this gorgeous morning at the #goldengatebridge  with #fog   #clouds  and our beautiful #sanfrancisco  in the background.

Sunrise with the Stars

This Image was made during my birthday trip in Feb this year. I decided that on my way home I would stop in #deathvalleynationalpark   #mesquitedunes was  among one of the locations, sure glad I did.

Walking in the Rain

This my favorite Image that I walked away with after standing in the #rain   for a few hours on #pier7  in #sanfrancisco  a few weeks ago. I was drenched down to my socks but at least my camera stayed dry thanks to my #kata702  rain-cover.

Night Venture

I once again pulled an all nighter creating #nightscapes  of the #goldengatebridge  in the #fog  from a few new locations that I had not made photos from yet. Even though I did end up back in the #marinheadlands  for sunrise where I met +Joe Azure  +David Safanda +Matt Walker and Mark Lilly for a very good morning with clouds (finally)

LA Fog and Smog

This Image of the #laskyline   was made during our #socal  trip right after sunrise. This really seams something we #fogaholics   do best, we chase the #fog   no matter its location. Though +Larry Nienkark and I agreed this really was the lucky capture of the day.

Surf's Up

This is probably the best #surfing   #surfer image I have ever made, the lighting for this was just optimal.

This Image was made during the golden hour while standing among the waves in   #lajolla   
I believe +Lisa Co  has a behind the scenes shot of me, while +Larry Nienkark  rested his weary eyes.

I'm currently walking along the embarcadero, this is me being a bit crazy, so glad I trust my really right stuff L Bracket and clamp. You do what you have to in order to get the image you have envisioned ;)

Riding on Top

I got some really sweet surf shots in #lajolla  including one Epic one :)
This is one out of a few that I have processed.
This Image was made with me standing in the surf enjoying the sand and cold water between my toes, +Larry Nienkark was resting in the SUV and +Lisa Co wandering around on the beach taking macros while we waited for sunset.

Warm Light 

This Image was made back during my October trip in #brycecanyonnationalpark   , it was cold and windy +Jun Liu can confirm that :p
This spectacular play of light lasted merely a few minutes as the sun kept being blocked by the clouds. Less then 1hour later the cloud cover receded and it felt like 90F in the bottom of #brycecanyon , possibly had something to do with wearing snow pants,fleece sweater and a  jacket that was fleece lined with 20+ pounds of gear.

Golden Light

This Image is one of many in my back log, this was made on a terrific low #fog   #sunrise  outing from Slacker Hill. The fog stayed pretty low near the GGB and so it nicely engulfed #sanfrancisco  creating a mesmerizing scene as the sunlight lit up the side of the buildings and the top of the fog.
It surely is great  to be part of the  #fogaholics  and being able to witness these events.

Ocean Beach 

This Image was the result of a  #sunset  hunt with +Lisa Co   while having to wait for my car to be repaired, not a bad way of spending the time having to wait.

About to Faint 

On the way back from So-Cal in February I came back through #deathvalley  and after having had a good #sunrise the morning before I had to chance it to get another one. After hiking around in the  #mesquitedunes  for what seemed like eternity being completely out of breath I plopped down exhausted and closed my eyes for a second and laid against a dune bank. Next thing you know I opened my eyes and I saw this.

Simply  "Luck"

This Image was made back in January when I had my good friend +Ryan Watamura  and his GF come down to the #goldengatebridge  to get some #fog   #nightscapes  . Close to blue hour  however we got fogged in on slacker hill. While we waited for about 40min a definite good luck charm for me approached us, it was none other then my fellow #fogaholics   and good pal +Joe Azure  about 5min later it cleared out and we were greeted with some spectacular #lenticularclouds 

(EV) Thanks +Lisa Co

Green Channel 

On my last day in #lajolla  I decided to make some middle of the day long exposures but actually this 2sec exposure turned out pretty well with the water running down the Green channel of #greenmossrocks  in to the blue and serene ocean. I was later joined for sunset by +Lisa Co

Well everyone keeps asking for it, so here it is.
This is the line up of the #sandiegoairport  runway as 1 plane takes of another lands and right behind the next one starts to take of even before the plane that has landed leaves the runway all with in 150sec, one word comes to mind "Timing"

Stars of Hollywood Hills

This past weekend +Larry Nienkark and I did a short #socal  trip. Well that was at least the original plan till my Car decided to have an epic failure blowing off steam in the hills of SD.

This Image of the #hollywoodsign   was made  the morning after driving all night to the Griffith Observatory.

Final Flat

The hard way of learning OFF Road driving. 
While on my way to the #racetrack  back in 2012 I had only regular all terrain tires and I got my 4th flat (same tire, I was able to fix the other 3 punctures with tire plugs)  and then came the final flat (tire got filet under the thread with a 2 inch slice}. While in the process of changing my tire John and his buddy in a rental Nissan came up on me (they where running on empty empty) I had 5 gallons I gave to them and they helped me with place the tire back under the SUV a daunting task. 
I asked if they had a spare just in case, they had no idea and after checking for it (It was not there, it was on the vehicle) so I gave them also a can of Fix A Flat for just in case.

After coming back from this trip I took a off road driving class and I have learned so much about off road driving and what my SUV is actuallycap... more »

Sunset at the Track

They told me the road to the #racetrackplaya  was impassable and that they had multiple vehicles limp out on flat tires including SUV like mine. Well they regular person forgets a few things when driving in their rentals and even SUV with regular all terrain tires.
1) Lower your tire air pressure
2) Do not drive in the compacted tracks all it takes is nice pointy rock dug in the ground, instead try to drive in the loose dirt near side and middle as the rocks will have room to move aside or down(do watch out for larger rocks as they can cut your side walls)
3) Check to make sure you have a spare tire and the tools needed
4) Have additional things like Fix a Flat, tire plugs and Air compressor, especially heading out to location like this.

The road was in worse condition do to the road just being grated and having turned over a lot of rocks.... more »

Ready for my Treat

While visiting So_Cal and shooting in La Jolla +Lisa Co showed me the location where she had gotten some amazing pelican shots. 
The #pelicans  here in So-Cal are very colorful not brown and dull like the ones we have in Nor-Cal. During processing I did come to the conclusion  that this image did #blackandwhite  more justice.

No Idea 

He was laying on the rock the entire afternoon soaking up as much sun as he could until this moment.
With High-tide coming in he had no Idea what was happening behind him as a 30' wave crashed in to the rocks and my camera started rattling of shots continuously, he looked at me possibly thinking (stupid human acting like he has never seen a  #seal   before)
Little did he know

Candy Store Channel

I absolutely love this location with the  #greenmossrocks   , the opportunities here in  #lajolla  at the  #lajollacandystore   just seem to be endless and I can't wait to be back here in just a little over a week.
This Image was taken right before the start of golden hour with +Lisa Co and fellow Photog named Jared, a 18 year old kid that is a very quick learner.

The Wall

Its this type of vision that I have when making an photo on location, I have so many fog shots and currently going through my folders editing.
This Image was made one of those nights when I could not sleep and the cams looked good and being part of the #fogaholics   I decided to drive out to the #goldengatebridge .  I got there and got 7 images then the fog completely retreated.

Moon and Mountain

This Image was made outside #bishop   #california  . This awesome location was shown to me by +Rick Sherman the photographer I had met in DV. Unfortunately working 2 cameras is more difficult then people imagine, especially when filters are involved and so I had missed the #moonset  by a few seconds as I was focused on the sunrise the other camera was capturing. 
So before I get ridiculed this is a composite Image, I'm not the best at this and only thanks to +Larry Nienkark I got this far.

The Gate and the Stars 2

During a small Photowalk at POFA I met a a fellow German Photographer +Mathew Clark , him not having a car I offered my services to play tour-guide for the night. We drove up in to the Marin Headlands among a few locations and got some epic fog shots (well he did) by the Transamerica lineup, this was also where I met a silent follower of mine named +chriscorman . I talked more this night with everyone then actually made images but here is one of them from #horseshoebay

Candy Store

I have to say the #lajolla  shores have been become one of my favorite locations to capture sunset and this all thanks to my awesome tour-guide +Lisa Co who also provided me with spectacular home-cooked meals during my entire time down there including treating me out to Sushi for my BDay Dinner which was hands down a excellent choice, so much even that we ate there the second day as well.

This Image was made in the onset of golden hour as I was walking around looking for compositions in the Candy Store

The Green Door to the Golden Palace

This Image was made on a small Photowalk at #palaceoffinearts in #sanfrancisco   that +Belinda Shi had organized, I finally got to meet Belinda  after having admired her work and awesome processing techniques for a few months now. I also got to meet +Dan Shehan Photography (D3CityPics)(the only Nikon user, for once I was not outnumbered)  and +Mike Valera.

I had a great time meeting everyone and can't wait till we get together on a new outing.
I was doing long exposures all evening, but sometimes the shortest one can have the largest impact.
So here is one of the last images I took that evening at this location. Hope everyone likes it as much as I do.
Enjoy :)

Light Along the Walls

A day spend having fun off-road  in #anzaborregostatepark   resulted in hiking up and down a pretty need #slotcanyon  among other locations I was advised to check out by +Alexander S. Kunz who also had giving me several more locations and GPS points, thank you again as I had a lot of fun even getting here, and thank you +Lisa Co for the introduction.

Footstep Dunes

This was probably the most colorful #sunrise   at #mesquitesanddunes  in #deathvalley  I had ever experienced  and I got share it with a awesome photographer +Rick Sherman  that I met 24h earlier at Badwater.
Unfortunately there was  nothing but footsteps everywhere, no matter which direction you pointed the camera, no wind there to help us even a bit with temps in the mid 60s in the early morning hours.

This is a prelude to the images to come from my SD and So-Cal Trip.
I will post a few here but will keep some hidden until the official unveiling of my Website :)

I arrived in #sandiego  around 0200h and instead of sleeping decided to stay up and keep shooting the #sandiegoskyline   , I just could not pass up the clouds moving by as the city and moon lit them up.
This is a simple 30sec exposure at 40mm from #coronado

As per request of my friend +Lisa Co who was a  awesome host and tour guide of So-Cal 

This Image was made the second day at the #lajollashores  as the sky blew up with some of the craziest pinks I have ever seen.
I did use the #formatthitech  filters a 2stop RG and a 2stop GR, they stayed very neutral in the color cast and truly a test for any filter, this image was actually processed with saturation -12 as well as vibrancy -7, it was just too much to handle for the camera :)

Down the Middle

Well this Image was made at another famous location along the  #lajollashores   , this was one of the the many locations Lisa showed me during my So-Cal trip +Lisa Co  was such an awesome guide and very patient as I did a lot of LE shots on my trip.
This is my version of how I saw the #scrippspier  in a #longexposure  with the clouds passing by.

Lanticular Madness 

This #longexposure   #blackandwhite   Image was made at #monolake  last Friday. As I arrived near Mammoth I could see #lenticularclouds  form over the   #sierra   and as I got closer to Mono Lake more of them came in to view.
I started to drive down the South Tufa Road and I was just amazed and had a difficult time keeping my eyes on the road, so much so that I actually did drive of the road and into the brush (luckily I have a vehicle capable of that and could care less of some scratches in the paint, they are called desert paint stripes after-all and my car is covered with them already ;)  )

This Image is per request of +Larry Nienkark wanting to see lenticular clouds over Mono. So here you go buddy :)

Shores of Death 

We all know there will be a time in our live where it will all come to an end. What we don't know is when it will happen. So enjoy the moments you have and go out experience what the world has to offer. Unfortunately for these poor suckers it was to late.

This Image was made at #saltcreekbeach   on my trip along the east  side of the   #saltonsea  shoreline, once again racing to find a suitable spot to shoot #sunset.

Into the Distance

Well I was once again chasing for a sunset location, as I drove along Hwy 101 when I came across a rail road bridge that I saw out of the corner of my eye. I slammed on the brakes going on to the breakdown lane, which then meant I had to revers a few yards to the pull out location. As I stood here taking this #longexposure  of the #sunset   a person came up the ravine across the tracks. I greeted the person and the response I got was "Max is that you", I was stunned as it was no other person then +Marc Briggs who I  had just met at an open house at Aperture Academy a few week before. What are the odds of all the location around Santa Barbara and I pick this one particular location.

Thanks for the BDay Beer and conversation  I for sure will be coming back down there as it is only 1 tank of gas away.

This was the first real test of the#for... more »

Just another sunrise

About Christmas 2013, Bagan, Myanmar. Thousands of photographers shoot maybe hundreds of thousands of sunrise/sunset pics here daily. Definitely a challenge of tower siege in the freezing weather: 3 hrs sticking on bare feet to the side of a tower balancing on loose bricks of one foot width, or be there late and have no space at all. No majestic morning fog while I was there unfortunately but just had to make do.

This first post owes its thanks to the great pressure from +Maximilian Laue the real photographer, who happens to know I am in possession of a camera (which does not mean I know what I am doing with it at all, and believe me I really don't), and keeps nagging about posting. Definitely a great inspiration, Max. This might not be what was asked for but I am working hard on digging.

Calm Above Storm Below

This was one of the last images made of the second best Sunset ever witnessed as +Lisa Co and I decided to go back to the  #lajollashores  for the second time. This  Image was made towards the middle of #bluehour   it is a 479sec #longexposure  , during the time the image was made the tide rose up rather quickly and the waves kept creeping up closer and closer on the cliff side I was sitting on with every minute, a rather sketchy situation towards the end.
If you have never been to these shores you are missing out, so glad Lisa showed me this amazing location where some amazing #seascapephotography  has been done. Perfect Example +Garry McCarthy 's work, highly recommend you check out his amazing work from this and other locations. Thanks for the detailed answers of the locations you gave us.

Lighting up the Nights Sky

Well this was not one of the first images of my trip but if it was not for the hospitality of +Lisa Co  my care taker ;) I would have never made the images I made. She was a gracious care taker and host, early mornings till late in to the night from my birthday till I left. She showed me so many locations and vantage points that every time we stopped somewhere I was at awe. Lisa made my Birthday a unforgettable one and I just cant thank her enough for it as I usually don't really care for them. 

Lisa Under the stars for the first time in a long time, we decided to  venture out in to the #anzaborregostatepark   in search of the statues, impossible if you have no clue where to go in the middle of the night.
So instead of finding them she became one her self ;)

A Quick Snap

Just a quick snap with the cell of tonight's typical So_Cal #sunset
I wanted a perfect cloud and color, maybe even some rocks with green mos on them, so +Lisa Co did not fail me as we ventured out back to #lajolla

So +Swee Oh I caught it ;p

Below a Bridge

Well leave it up to me to climb down some of the most brittle cliffside along the #californiacoastline. Attempt one to get below #bixbybridge was almost fatal (well at a minimum a few broken bones) second one was still sketchy but a lot better, even though I did loose my cell phone sometime coming down the cliff side. Luckily found it less the 1/4 way up hanging in the branches of some brush. This is a panorama taken with #galaxys4 edited in #snapseed
