Stephan Spelde8,664My Inspirational CircleEver since I joined Google plus in the end of the year 2011 I have been looking for those special ones. Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... 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+

Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 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.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  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 parts 3, 4 and 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/17ujpn*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.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204CC G+

Jim Warthman15,004Today I passed 15,000 followers! Thank you all very much for your kind appreciation and interest in my work! I am honored that 15,000 people enjoy my photography and have chosen to add me to their circles. I especially appreciate those of you who take the time to read my posts and comment on my work. I am truly humbled by this, and hope I can continue to share content that you’ll find interesting and worthy of being included in your circles.And special thanks to +Margaret Tompkins! I connected with Margaret soon after joining G+ and she has been mentoring me ever since. I credit my own G+ presence largely to Margaret’s wonderful influence!To commemorate this milestone, I’m sharing this Thank You Circle. Unfortunately, I can’t include all 15,000 of you in a circle - but I’ve selected those who’ve helped me on my G+ journey. This circle has some wonderful people who are highly engaging, interactive, thoughtful, and share outstanding content in their own streams.Last but not least, I’d love for you to introduce yourself in the comments below.Thank you all very much and, as always, Share and Enjoy! #Circleshare  #SharedCircles2013-06-18 14:34:0841343627CC G+

David Marx4,263Shared Circle:  The Photographers Whose Posts Consistently Inspire Me Here On Google+I am writing an article tonight on how to find the right connections for photographers new to the Google+ platform.  My article is geared towards those just starting out here.  One of the things that I suggest in the article is that you start out your Google+ experience by immediately killing off the silly "what's hot and recommended" feed.  In place of that nonsense, I recommend that photographer's new to this platform start out their experience here by subscribing to this circle.This circle is a completely biased list.  This is my own personal list of photographers whose style, and whose words, resonate with my tastes everyday.  These is just a small sampling of the Google+ photographers whose posts I religiously follow and whose art, insight, and consistency inspire me.  This is a small sampling of the artists that I see sharing great art here and individuals who I believe exemplify good Google+ etiquette.   Again, this is by no means a definitive list of all the talented artists currently sharing their work on this platform.  This is not meant to be a list of the artists who have the most Google+ followers nor those who have the most industry influence.2013-04-11 05:20:1342116CC G+

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:1450013641100CC G+

Gene Bowker45,842First Name N-SThe #photographerstofollow  2013 #alphabetcircles Curated by +Gene Bowker So who are these folks? And why are they photographers to follow?First of all.. this circle contains a bunch of my closest friends on G+. The folks that I spend the most time "with" on here.  There are a bunch of great photographers and just as importantly "good people" here.1) Active : They have posted within the last month. With the holidays a lot of folks have slowed down but these folks are still there. Yes, I visited each stream.2) Original These photographers are sharing mostly  "THEIR OWN WORK" and their stream is mostly photography. 3) Interactive : I try to find folks who are interactive and comment on their own posts and the posts of others.There are some names you will recognize in here for sure but there are also some folks you probably don't know yet. Hopefully you will take some time to check them out and see if they have room in your circles.Any omissions are wholy on me too as no one asked for did anything to be included in here.I hope you'll reshare in your stream!Why?I love it when people take the time to reshare these circles.It allows my friends to be introduced to your friends.. and promotes some great photography on G+.Not in hereThere is no need to ask for inclusion.  I add folks as I come across them,  you can read more about how I select athttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/NeJZXLJ6oQBBe Original. Be Active. Be Interactive.There is a good chance we'll cross paths before I share the circles again.NoteI'll be sharing the remainder of the alphabet this week before my new job starts next week.

Jeff Sullivan1,152,722Most-Followed 500 Photographers CircleWhile a circle like this has the obvious drawback of missing some excellent photographers newer to the site, Charles often follows up his Top 500 Most Followed Photographer circle with circles going all the way down to photographers with less than 5000 contacts.  Here are four circles Charles has created to help us discover and recognize photographers at all levels within the G+ community:Under 5000 -    Under 7500 -    Under 15,000 - 500 Most Followed Photographers - (here)I like to interact with people who are active in photography... share at least a photo or two of their own original work per week, so I'll slowly whittle the circle down to a stream of excellent photography (I've started, but may not finish for a few weeks).---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+Charles Lupica  Charles Lupica Dec 25, 2012 (edited)  -  Public►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers list                   circle of 500             and Group 6: 421 to 500►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄If you're not in this circle and you think you should be, I'm sorry.  I have missed a few people by pure accident.  My methods are entirely manual and I do miss people.  I have checked every profile and I have included only those people that share their own work, and share it on G+. Bloggers and people doing mostly reshares weren't included. Some big name photographers that don't share a lot of their own work were included - sorry for the double standard. Here is the 6th and last part  of my list of the top 500 most followed photographers - Here are links to the previous parts of the list.Group 1: http://tinyurl.com/cf58vws - 1 to 100Group 2: http://tinyurl.com/bodaspk - 101 to 193Group 3: http://tinyurl.com/bsb87u4 - 194 to 250 and circleGroup 4: http://tinyurl.com/d4ulv6q  - 250 to 340Group 5: http://tinyurl.com/cjpmgy4 - 341 to 420 Group 6: 421 to 500 and circle of 500 (this post)If you are on this list, I urge you to comment, plus and share the post. I have sifted through lots of pages and circles as well as http://circlecount.com/  to try to get an accurate list. If I'm missing anyone, please let me know.  I have specifically left off a few people who only share links to their content housed elsewhere,  people who share a lot of other people's work without sharing their own, or people that appear to be inactive. The rank numbers are off by 1 because I included the same person twice in an earlier list.#Top500CircleDec   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  420 +Jennifer Luzio 21797421 +Matt Suess 21794422 +2013-01-07 15:33:25500221451CC G+

Full In-Depth Review of the just announced HTC One M8

Just a few moments ago, +HTC announced the successor to the popular HTC One Android phone, officially known as the HTC One M8. For the past two months I have been using a near final version of their latest flagship phone, taking it with me to Iceland, the Canadian Rockies and Hawaii to accompany me on a few of my adventures. The result is an in-depth look at the new phone, its strengths, weaknesses and my overall thoughts as a photographer. Enjoy!

Full Frame a7/a7r Mirrorless Camera

http://www.colbybrownphotography.com/an-in-depth-conversation-with-sony-focus-on-a7a7r/

I recently sat down with the head Product Manager and lead Senior Technology Manager with +Sony to have an in-depth discussion about the a7/a7r full frame mirror-less cameras. We covered sensor technology, GPS options, flash support, the lens roadmap and much more.

If you have been thinking about picking up a mirror-less camera or already own the a7 or a7r, you will enjoy this post.

Northern Lights

Sorry for the new upload, had to fix the crappy quality upload.  Thanks for the tip.

On a recent winter trip to Iceland, I was fortunate enough to see a few good displays of the aurora, which was the main reason for the trip. Chasing the aurora can be quite challenging, since it is based not only on the aurora forecast, but also cloud forecast, as well as the direction of the display. On this particular evening my main composition was setup facing to the right of this shot, just waiting for the aurora to show up, but it turned out to be the best in another direction. I quickly tried to find a composition to take advantage of the display while it lasted.

Vermilion Morning
Banff, Alberta

Best viewed on black

I've been hung up on this image for a while, its been my 'white whale' so to speak... Such a spectacular sunrise has become a tough image to process!  I think for now this is as far as my workflow will let me go, so I'm polishing up my skills with processing tutorials and trying to break past this plateau or 'processing slump' that I've been hitting with images from Canada.

I hope you enjoy this rendition, I'm sure it will evolve into something better once I can push my abilities!

Sunrise at the Fjord
Reine, Norway

In preparation for my upcoming trip to Norway, here is another photo from my March 2012 trip. This is Reinefjord from the village of Reine, considered among the most beautiful in all of Norway. This was taken at sunrise, with a reflection of the snow-peaked mountains in the fjord.

Maligne's Icefall
Maligne Canyon, Alberta

So what do you do when visiting Alberta in the winter and a high pressure system moves in and give you blue bird skies?  Head into the icy canyons of course!  Myself and +Colby Brown  headed into Maligne Canyon with the awesome +Jeff Bartlett to explore the large icefalls that had formed this winter.  It was like a miniature Zion Narrows with some awesome ice thrown in.  This is a beautiful location year round but I highly recommend spending an early morning here if you find yourself visiting Jasper National Park in the winter.

Freeze Frame
Abraham Lake, Alberta

Just now sorting and selecting work to process from 10 days in the Canadian Rockies.  Beyond the grandeur of massive peaks and wild land that surrounded us, the fine details in the ice were something I really wanted to capture.  These bubbles are formed in numerous lakes in the Canadian Rockies, but most famous from Abraham as access is simple and the Chinook winds often keep the lake clear of any snow accumulation.

Finishing up at Abraham Lake today and heading back south to Banff. Wandering frozen lakes has been an awesome part of this trip, so many interesting fine details from bubbles and cracks to interweaving ice formations.

Here's a capture of me working on a composition along the lake while waiting for some afternoon light.

Here's to hoping our last sunset and sunrise are good to us!

These -30 mornings have been something else! Looks like clouds will return tomorrow for our time up at Abraham Lake.

Here's a HTC One snap from an evening shooting at Vermilion Lakes. Lots of winter wonderland images to edit and share of the Canadian Rockies, can't wait to start working on these.

Keep Calm and Climb On
Alberta, Canada

I'm up in Alberta hanging out with +Colby Brown and checking out the Canadian Rockies.  The weather wasn't playing very nice with some of the locations we were hoping to check out of the next few days, so we've headed north to Jasper National Park.  Along the way up the Icefields Parkway we stopped by a location known as the 'Weeping Walls' and were given the chance to snag a few photos of a pair of ice climbers moving up this massive frozen structure.  From all the images from publications like Outside Magazine or even the Patagonia catalog and such captivating adventure sports photos, I've always wanted a chance to shoot something like this! I hate to post work from the road, but I just was eager to share this with others :)

This is a quick edit with Lightroom 5 and the Nik Collection.  Now, its back tosort... more »

"Beneath the Ice"

© David W. Thompson 2014

One of the things that I enjoy about photography, is the experiences that I have. The images bring back memories. As is the same with this one. One of the memories that stuck in my head is how cold it was. It was cold! Real cold! I'm sure a lot of you have experienced -15 degree weather, but me.....living here in the SW, we don't get weather even remotely close that. It's a different feeling when it's that cold and the wind hits your skin.  Ouch!

Winter Blues
The Palouse, WA

Sunrise was a flop this morning, and man, was it cold up on Steptoe Butte!  Negative windchills and likely an ambient temp just above zero made it tough to watch a small molten glow fizzle to nothing in seconds :(

Anyways, here's one more from the Kamiak Butte area, I like the mixed light here and the rolling contours.  More snow is in the long range forecast, so not sure what things will look like at that point with some notable depth on the hills.

As always, feel free to share.

Storm Over Cuernos del Paine, Patagonia, Chile

Dark storm clouds rage in the background above the majestic shaped mountains, while the extremely high gusts of wind ravage the landscape in the foreground creating quite a scene..

The day went from sunshine to stormy at the blink of an eye. It was impossible to predict what the weather was going to be like from one minute to the other. I already had some lovely red sunrise shots, and some striking blue sky panoramas of the Cuernos, but I thought I'd take the opportunity of the crazy weather to get a nice dramatic scene which probably more truly reflects this area of the world more than others.

This photograph is a combination of two different shots. The first was 1/40 of a second @ f/8 in order to get a nice crisp landscape. The other was a long exposure with an ND filter at 1/3 of a second @ f/22 in order to slow... more »

Enchanted
The Palouse, WA

Finally having snowfall on the Palouse has been super motivating to get out, explore and photograph the area.  The landscape is a quintessential winter wonderland and it sounds like a little more snow coming in the forecast. 

I headed up to Kamiak Butte this morning for a different perspective.  While I didn't hit all the vantage points I wanted, I still had a wonderful and quiet morning. The Palouse is dominated by long lens opportunities and I really wish I had one of the Canon L's in the 300mm range. 

As always, feel free to share, enjoy the touch of winter.  Ok enough, its time to make some coffee and get ready to watch the Seahawks bring home a big win!

Fog and Light
The Palouse, WA

This morning I spent time with +Grant Meyer  on Steptoe Butte State Park, utilizing the fresh snow, freezing fog, and nice light for sunrise.  I was happy to finally get out and get some shots with conditions coming together for once.  With temps dropping below freezing and continuing to slip down, things should stay like this for a while and I'll be out and about capturing them!

Today on my website +Shutter Muse we have a great post by my friend and brilliant landscape photographer +Peyton Hale .
http://shuttermuse.com/why-sold-my-graduated-neutral-density-filter/

A couple of months ago I noticed Peyton was selling his graduated ND kit and I though it seemed like an odd move for a landscape photographer so I had to find out more!  I asked him to put this post together to explain why he was selling them, and tell you guys what he's using now instead.

The Chamber
Lower Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Taken in the heart of Lower Antelope while visiting this past spring, a warm glow near the  feature 'Lady in the Wind' seeps in to blend with the cool tones of the walls tucked in the shadows.  This was 5 exposures blended together using +Sean Bagshaw 's tutorial on creating 32 bit HDR files.  Check out more of Sean's tutorial tidbits on his YouTube page and complete editing tutorials on his website, www.outdoorexposurephoto.com

This week my friend +TJ Thorne  nearly lost his life while exploring at Cape Kiwanda. Luckily he and his girlfriend are alright, but his camera gear is destroyed from his salt water plunge. Many photographers and friends are rallying behind TJ to help raise enough money to replace his camera and pay for lens repairs.

Please take time to read his story and if you can, donate or at least share to your feed. He's setup a reward system offering prints for those willing to donate towards the recovery of his equipment and I'll be donating funds as well as offering prints of my winter Palouse images to help in the process.

Best of luck TJ and thank you to those who have contributed to this! TJ is very talented and one of the nicest dudes I've met since relocating to the PNW, and I won't let this event hamper his creative drive. Get this guy a camera back quick

No Rime nor Reason
The Palouse, WA

Freezing fog and rime ice made for a fun morning of shooting on Steptoe Butte.  Although the fog didn't burn off like I'd like it to, we were still given some moody conditions to work with.  I was rather happy with the final product here as it conveys the mood of the morning. 

Now back to work on other projects, finishing up some articles and planning travel up to the Canadian Rockies next month!

Winterfell
Palouse Falls State Park, WA

An early morning run to Palouse Falls did not disappoint as the lower pool and much of the rock around the waterfall are encompassed with ice. Being the only person there while ice was calving into the water was kind of startling at first!

Fenix TK 51 - A Review

The fine folks over at +Fenix Lights were nice enough to select me for the global testing campaign for the TK 51 dual beam flashlight.  I had a chance to use this for a few weeks both at home and in the field, so here's a review on the light.

Solitude
The Palouse, Washington

Here's the other keeper from my recent visit to Steptoe Butte under a fresh dusting of snow.  As the storm began to clear filtered light began to spot over the rolling fields, giving this mix of cool and warm tones to the landscape.  This particular scene is quite popular when the fields are lush green, but I am quite fond of the subtle winter hues.

The first image had so much positive feedback, sharing, comments and a few emails regarding print availability, it was humbling and unexpected.  

As always, all images are available as prints, just contact me via the website :) Feel free to share this one as well!

First Snow
The Palouse

This morning was my first chance to get out and photograph snow covered hills in the Palouse. The area around Steptoe Butte State received less snow than we did here in Pullman, but it still made for a great winter scene. I had the entire place to myself this morning and it was such a wonderful and relaxing experience.

Here's a quick edit as the storm began to clear. Its sometimes surreal to think this is a real place and not a painting Feel free to share!

Another World
White Pocket, Arizona

Sometimes, you get those skies that just go boom with color when its least expected, say driving to work or walking out of the grocery store. Other times you plan relentlessly for a trip to visit epic landscapes and you're given diddly for dramatic skies.

Weathered

I spent yesterday, my birthday, out on the backroads of the Palouse as snow had fallen throughout the previous night and into the early morning.  There are many abandoned farms and old barns amid the rolling hills and this one definitely caught my eye. 

I typically don't shoot structures like this, so feedback is always welcome.

Antelope Flame

I'm currently working on transitioning my website over to Smugmug and I'm loving it so far!  This is one of many images captured back in the spring while touring the southwest.  You won't find this without a little digging around in Lower Antelope, which made for a fresh image from such a heavily visited location.

Spirit of the Gorge
Gifford Pinchot National Forest, WA

I spent the past two days checking out the Columbia River Gorge to get a nice mental break from things. I was fortunate to meet up with  +TJ Thorne  and +Tula Top  for a few photo ops of places that have been on my list for some time. While this year wasn't spectacular for fall color in many areas of the CRG, I was stoked to make it down to Spirit Falls on the Washington side of the Gorge. With a bit of work, this is definitely one of the cooler waterfalls I've had the chance to visit.

Looking forward to getting back to the Gorge in the springtime to mark many other spots off the list.

Back to work on a few projects and the website update. Looking forward to a more simplistic reboot of the site and my galleries.

Sony Announces the FIRST mirror-less Full Frame camera with inter-changeable lenses

Yesterday Sony unveiled the brand new a7 and a7r full frame mirror-less cameras, the first of their kind. Basically they have combined the best of their Alpha line with the NEX line with these new cameras. Moving forward, the NEX line of cameras will all be under their Alpha name.

It is during times like this that I am stoked to be working closely with companies such as Sony. I have been using many Sony products lately, such as the full frame rX1 and have been nothing short of impressed. Needless to say, I can't wait to get my hands on the Sony a7r! Lots of amazing projects in the works!

Sony A7 / A7R key features:

- 24.3 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with OLPF [A7]
- 36.3 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with no OLPF [A7R]
- E-mount with support for... more »

Zabriskie in Monochrome
Death Valley National Park, CA

Still kicking around with files from the desert southwest, this time a little monochrome for ya...a side trail will take you away from the tourists and many other photographers to a different perspective of this texture rich vista.

Taken from the Zabriskie Badlands while visiting Death Valley with +Colby Brown back at the start of 2012. I definitely need to get back to this park and some unvisited locations on my list, namely the Eureka and Ibex Dunes.
