Hugh Ferguson10,217A starter circle for those new to G+ I just realised its a year since I joined G+. When I started I was lucky enough to come across a really useful circle share to help me on my way. As I have yet to share a circle of my own I will try and give something back, in the hope it helps those in a similar position. I am not posting this for +1's, shares or to gain new followers - so please do not feel obliged to share, +1 or follow - there are plenty of those type of circle shares around if that's what you want The circle below is just a selection of the 3000 or so I follow. All are excellent and active contributors to G+. It's quite Landscape biased (too many great photographers to pick out one or two), but there are examples of other genres and resources for example:Great photographers who work tirelessly through communities and pages, producing great interaction, such as +Margaret Tompkins +Kevin Rowe +Rinus Bakker and +Nancy Dempsey .... wonderful creative artists like +Heidi Anne Morris +Lotus Carroll +Bryan Peterson .....street photographers such as +Thomas Leuthard +Angelica Guckes ......the exquisite beauty of flowers and Macro by +Rosie Nixon +Silke Tüxen ......great teachers such as +Nicole S.

I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-05 16:07:314714431109CC G+

Hi Everyone,

I'm finished with a programming project and I wrote a 545 page sci-fi book. So now I will upload my old and new photos REALLY BIG!

As I mentioned the past couple of days, I'm looking for a few readers for my book. If you would like to read it, reply below and send an email with your email address to patrick@patricksmithphotography.com and I'll send you a PDF. I spent 6 weeks editing it, so it's in good shape!

Here's the description:

"Exposed" Isla Mujeres, near Cancun, Mexico
During a vacation I waited a week for the sun to move into this position behind these hurricane exposed pier pilings. During the 30 seconds of this exposure, the sun appeared and disappeared below the horizon as a fleeting red blob!

This winter in the eastern US is not that bad! 

The headlines talk about this winter being a record cold one. Talk show hosts are saying that this cold weather proves the Earth is not getting warmer. Some people are saying that this cold weather proves that 'global warming' is a hoax and a conspiracy.

So I decided to look at a historical record for Chicago, which is at the center of this this cold weather and do my own count and chart. This chart shows the frequency of the number of days at or below zero for a minimum temperature on a given day, summarized for each year from 1873 through today. So far this January, Chicago has endured 9 days below zero with three more predicted in the next few days. I added them in for a total of 12 for 2014.

My Data source is here:

Global Climate Change!   #globalwarming   #climatechange  
(Photo: Snowball fight on steps of Florida's capitol building, 1899)

We've seen the recent headlines:

Snow in Egypt!
Canada colder than Mars!
Ship caught in increasing Antarctic sea ice!
US football playoff game might be the coldest ever!

Now, I have no vested interest in climate research. I'm not a climatologist and I'm not a climate change denier. I'm in the middle. I'm just someone who has access to the same records as anyone else. So, recently I decided to poke around and use some logic to get underneath this highly charged issue. 

Headlines often shape public opinion. So let's take this headline I read online to start:

Why Bitcoin cannot succeed.
(as of this writing, it's US $670, down from a peak of over $1,000)

I've studied the history of economic booms and busts and this is a classic! As the cliche goes, for every boom, there is a bust.

To start a classic boom, you need a good concept that makes logical sense, and you need a stream of new followers to buy from the early adopters who make the big money. It's not a scam, just a good idea. Some good ideas succeed. Here is the original paper describing the concept of Bitcoin.

http://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf

(I had to try a few times to get this PDF on my screen for some reason)

When I read this paper, the concept makes sense. It's a great idea. Bitcoin allows the exchange of money between people without going through a bank or similar institution. The total number of Bitcoins is... more »

Hi Everyone,

I'm finished with a programming project and I wrote a 545 page sci-fi book. So now I will upload my old and new photos REALLY BIG!

As I mentioned in the past couple of uploads, I'm looking for a few more readers for my book. When I hit 50, I'll stop and I'm getting close to that number now. If you would like to read it, reply below and send an email with your email address to patrick@patricksmithphotography.com and I'll send you a PDF. I spent 6 weeks editing it, so it's in decent shape! I might use part of the photo above as my cover because in my book, and in reality the human species faces a fork in the road... more »

Social Media for Photographers

When it comes to being a photographer, there is no shortage of online networks waiting for you to share your images, interact with others and potentially grow your business. From Google+ to Facebook, Twitter to Pinterest, 500px to Flickr, you have more options at your disposal now then ever before. But what really is Social Media? Why is it so important? Which networks are best for your needs? And most importantly, what are some of the ways that you can maximize your time on each of the major networks?

Over the next few weeks, I will be releasing a series of posts titled “Social Media for Photographers”. While I will be giving a broad over view of social media here today, each subsequent blog post will cover a specific social network (Google+, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Stipple), allowing you to have a more in depth look at the positiveand ... more »

A blanket to protect me from the barbed wire fence I had to sit on!
I remained motionless because the fence would move and spoil the shots.

"Victory!" , San Francisco, California

It is a long cloudless summer season so I'm looking around for unusual views of familiar things in the city. This is full-frame with my 400mm. I used the Bank of America building as the backdrop, which I've never seen done.
Here is a better view, see it big!

The model is Alma Spreckles of sugar fame. She was quite a character. Here is Salvador Dali's view of her:!
