Gailen Mapes69,782Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera A-B - 23 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-23 10:36:45180002

Stuart Dyckhoff25,692February EngagersIt's time to share the circle of those of you that have engaged with me this past month. The number is way down on January but then so has my sharing - mostly due to the weather. All in all, the end result is not surprisingAdding these people to your circles is your choice but I can confirm that everyone in this circle is an engager. What do I mean by engager?Simply that you have left a comment, even if only one word, on one of my posts throughout the past month. And the only way to get in next months is to engage with me. However .... one word comments or simple statements will not keep you in my circles. This is a temporary circle for the specific month and after this post it will be deleted. So far a couple of you have been added to a permanent place in my circles because you have gone above and beyond simple comments and for that I thank you again.Irrespective of your level of engagement I do truly appreciate each and every comment anyone makes. It is this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here.So, thank you, diolch, grazi, merci, etc.2014-03-01 20:55:054829110

Monochrome World6,526January 2014 Contributors Circle What an amazing month. The quality of the work shared has been exceptional, at least in my view. You do quality photography and it shows. In terms of contribution numbers it was humongous, and in terms of contributors, we beat all records. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful work. Re-share this circle if you can. It helps YOU and the theme to grow.Please remember to include in your posts, both the page and tag: +Monochrome World  #monochromeworld  This makes it easier to find your post. Also, all those included in this circle added the theme page to their circles. If you don't do that, I can't add you to the Contributors Circle.Note:1- please share your images posted to Public. If you post to communities, only community members can comment.2- So, my recommendation is this: post to Public first, then re-port to your favorite community.3- And, if you post to Extended Circles, your reach is limited and it makes difficult to re-share. So, it's been a rule for a long time: Extended Circles only-posts are not re-shared.Hope this helps clarify some issues. Thank you for your patience, and if I missed you in this circle, please let me know so I can pay more attention to your posts.Curator: +andi rivarola  #circleshare   #sharingcircles  +Circles Circles Circles +Share Your Circle +Circle Distribution +Valued Circle Shares 2014-02-04 03:06:3237613276159
Stuart Dyckhoff25,367January EngagersEveryone in this circle has directly engaged with at least one of my posts this past month. This share is my way of saying thank you again for having done so.The only way to get in my monthly engagers circle is to comment on at least one of my posts. A +1 won't do it and it doesn't matter whether I follow you back or not because for at least that month I will follow you if you comment. If you aren't normally in my circles then it's up to you to show me why you ought to remain. That could be by even more regular interaction with me or by sharing your own stuff that makes me want to engage back.Irrespective I do truly appreciate each and every comment folks make as it's this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here. Thank you, Diolch, Grazi.2014-01-31 06:53:00811517

Seriously need your help on this, I have nearly 2,000,000 followers on here, if only 10% of you react to this it's 200,000 signatures. One of the TV stations in the UK being sponsored by Mitsubishi are to air a documentary showing dog fighting. It's supposedly to show what is happening but all it will do is glorify these idiots that think this is a "sport"

Please, it's not often I ask for things to be shared, it's not often I ask for people to take action but now I am, please sign and share as much as you can and let's stop this program from going out on air. 

To add some perspective, you are all aware of my rescue dog Harry and how much I love him, these people will think nothing of stealing him from my home to use as a bait dog, that means he could be attacked by dogs training to fight so they get a taste for fighting, it would go on until Harryd... more »

#fivedayquest  -- Day 1

Someone I used to consider a friend suggested I join in on the fun(?) of posting a picture a day for five days of just stuff going on in my day. Sounds like TMI to me :)

Here is an event that happens everyday: feed the dogs. This is Leo eagerly awaiting his breakfast (the other one is already busy eating).

The other part of the fun is to tag another soul to see if they'd like to share in the pain fun. Has +Robin Griggs Wood had the pleasure? :)

After many days of little to zero internet access we have a brief window on this day that starts our trip home from Oregon. We have had a great time even if there was little concentrated time for photography.
I did manage to spend a little while on the coast near Newport and also stole some morning time to get this shot at sunrise of Mt. Hood in the distance looking over the valleys to its west.

If you haven't had the pleasure and success of having Robin kick your butt lead you to new insights, you should make every effort to do so. If it doesn't change your life you didn't pay attention :)

I'm an Arcanum Master now –– yeah! ( +The Arcanum thearcanum.com ) –– and these days looking through applicants who want to grow as artists. I decided I wanted my introduction video to be more than just an "About me" thing, but something to reach farther and elevate others with. If you feel the same, spread the word about the myth of "talent" and let people know that ART and CREATIVITY is available to everyone who truly wants it. No one is left out.

"The Myth of Talent" and an introduction to Robin Griggs Wood

Here is my primary focus for my Arcanum Cohort:

– To help people overcome the myth of talent and bring back their greatest faculty for learning, the ability to play
– To help people overcome creative blocks
– To direct, foster and give a general kick in the arse to personal creativity. I challenge people with a caring and perceptive attitude
– To make certain that people know all the rules have all the tools of art fundamentals at their disposal

Here is the "tech" I know:

– Correct HDRI
– Vast and various methods of post-processing, Color and Black & White 
– Photoshop core basics. I rarely teach plug-ins because they are fickle, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy their use (and may ask you to impart your wisdom to the group, if you use them ... ;o7)
– Drawing, sketching and painting ... which I probably won't dive into too much with the general group unless a large number of people beg me .. ;op
– Creative post-processing
– How people learn
– How an artist becomes and remains an artist
– I could write more stuff here, but this is already a tome ... ;oD

What the Arcanum is NOT:

– This is not a one-to-one mentoring situation, if that is what you signed up to the Arcanum for.
– This is not a curriculum-based program. Each of my Apprentices will be working along their own path with my guidance (and occasional arse-kicking ... or did I mention that already ... ;o7) and challenges geared towards pushing them on that path.

What the Arcanum is:

– A peer-to-peer learning situation where, by design, the entire group supports each other with guidance supplied by the Master.


About me:
I'm clever, sometimes funny; I'm firm but gentle in my arse-kicking (did I write that yet?); I've been helping people find their art for over 10 years.
I am not genre-specific (Landscape, Street, B&W, etc.), but I believe I have a bit of something to offer in many genre's. Except Portrait & Studio Photography; I still want to learn that (but I damn-well will, if you want to learn it, too! ... ;o))

Enough about me ... how about you?

If you're interested, let me know in the comments here if you want me to search for your application over at the Arcanum, thearcanum.com ... space is limited.

To add some perspective, you are all aware of my rescue dog Harry and how much I love him, these people will think nothing of stealing him from my home to use as a bait dog, that means he could be attacked by dogs training to fight so they get a taste for fighting, it would go on until Harry died, not a fast death but one that would take weeks.___Read what Mike says... it matters.

Deep in the country I stumbled upon what appears to be a new alien-contact communication hub. The solar panel portion is clearly sized for a much larger power drain than this small dwelling so the assumption there are other units either deep underground or hidden in a neighbouring dimension. Construction appears to be almost complete (the lawn-to-be has been seeded) but no inhabitants were seen.

It'd be nice to think Nikon will think on the bigger picture this is.

Dear EVERYONE,

This is me…
SO HAPPY!
Guess why?
I got myself a phone call from Nikon
Oh yes… yes I did.
A loaner camera is ON ITS WAY!!!! And THEN I will send in my broken camera in. 

HAPPY DANCE

Thank you, Dear Nikon, for making an exception and allowing me to continue doing what I love to do… and keep food on the table for my kiddos. 

Thank you - each and every one of you who helped make my voice heard. TRULY.
And thank you SO MUCH to ALL of you who so unbelievably offered to send me their own personal cameras so I could make due. I cannot believe how generous that was, and how many offers I received. I am TRULY a blessed girl. My amazing family.___It'd be nice to think Nikon will think on the bigger picture this is.

I keep hearing more and more of these instances of Nikon not willing to acknowledge problems with their cameras and do the right thing for their customers from the start.
If you are considering an investment in Nikon, take this into consideration and maybe think again.

Dear NIKON (+Nikon Canada Inc, +Nikon USA)
Hello,
My name is Chrysta Rae.
I AM a full-time professional photographer - even though you don't consider me one.
I make my living doing interior/architectural photography.

I was a devoted Canon user, until I heard about your amazing 14-24 mm wide angle lens.
Because of that lens, I switched to Nikon.
And I was SO excited and proudly told everyone that I had switched.

I spent ALL of my savings (I am a single Mom, so let me tell you - spending over $5,000 on a brand new Nikon D600, a 14-24 lens, a 28-300 lens, a Nikon SB-700 Speedlight flash was BEYOND my financial limit by a LOT. a LOT.) 

My photography changed instantly - the camera is unreal and that lens was worth every penny - BUT day ONE I discovered these spots on every single one of my photos. What the heck?

So I researched. And found out that there were more people with these spots while using the D600.

So - instantly I went back to the retailer I bought the camera from. NO WAY can I go out EVERY day, take between 100 and 1,000 shots AND remove SPOTS from each and every photo. And - I do know about spot removal and sync in Lightroom, but just to make it clear - the spot is in the same spot, but my SHOTS are different - so the spot in one shot is on a wall, the next is on a window/bed/lamp/sky/carpet… so sync does not help me.
The salesman felt awful - as he recommended Nikon, which spurred me into doing the research and eventually led me to switch. 

BUT… the only thing he could do for me was to take the camera back, and send it to you. But… I need my camera… every single day… it's how I earn my living. If I don't have my camera, I not only lose income, but potentially clients. They NEED photos - right away - if I don't have a camera, I can't shoot, and they go to another photographer who HAS a camera.

I begged for a loaner camera. How can they sell me over $5,000 of equipment… and NOT HELP ME?!!!

So I called you.
NUMEROUS TIMES.
And all you say is that I am not a "professional photographer" and not a part of your super duper "professional" photographer club BECAUSE I do not own 2 professional camera bodies. 

blink, blink

If I HAD two cameras, I wouldn't be in this dilemma! I would happily send the DEFECT camera in to be repaired and not skip a beat. But I do NOT have thousands of dollars laying around to spare for another camera!

So I trudged on. Miserable.

The spots then multiplied. By a lot. To a point where I shed more than a few tears, AND finally had to buy a cleaning kit to try to clean the sensor myself. If you could possibly imagine, not one single place in my city cleans the sensors - which added to my terror of doing it myself.

Thankfully it worked.

For about a week.

And then the spots came back. So I cleaned it again.

And this has continued since July of last year.

I continued to call, to send messages to your Facebook and Google+ community pages, and hoped beyond hope that you would just help me.

But… you didn't. And I am STILL out shooting with a camera I now HATE because of those spots.

I always wondered how on EARTH you could sell me a camera for THAT much money, and it was A DEFECTIVE camera, and NOT HELP ME.

And I am a kind person. I never ONCE did a mean post to you, I never went to my over 1.2 million followers on Google+, NOR my over 250,000 followers on Facebook to SAY how you weren't helping me… because… well I just thought you would come through for me, and I didn't want you to help me simply because I made a stink.

And then yesterday, I read that you are allocating $17.7 MILLION DOLLARS to repair D600 issues and "YOUR REPUTATION".

So… does this mean you will HELP ME?!!!
Could this possibly mean that you will take it upon yourself to help me ) - someone who does a great deal for our beloved photography community - who has begged for help countless times and received not one iota of help other than, "send in your camera and in a few (up to 8 weeks) we will fix it". Does this mean you will possibly make an exception to your exclusive club and consider me an actual professional photographer who deserves a loaner camera while fixing/replacing my PIECE OF CRAPOLA that I worked SO hard to buy?

Could it be that I can MAYBE say that I am a proud Nikon user again?

I've been a little absent from G+ recently for a number of reasons but I did get to do some LE experimentation at a couple of waterfalls in NJ over the Memorial Day weekend . This is a 1 min exposure at spot known as Silver Spray Falls in Sussex County (part of the Delaware Water Gap)

#fivedayquest   -- Day 6

What can I say, I'm a big fan of Douglas Adams and his 5-part trilogy :)

Here's to the end of the day and the end of the quest for five photos of my simple life. I thank +Christin McLeod for pushing me into it (all those bored by the previous 5 shots should write to her and complain - don't forget to include a stamped self-addressed envelope so she can reply). Since it is Day 6 I won't tag any other unsuspecting soul but I will tag +Lauri Novak and +Tisha Craw as two souls who appreciate a nice glass of wine (or two, or thr...) ;)

Yes, it is the obligatory morning coffee shot. Photographically inspiring ain't it? :)
But this is an important start to every day of my life for many years so it deserves a spot in this mini-chronicle. Blame +Christin McLeod, it is all her fault for tagging me :p

Besides, I get to tag in #coffeethursday  and my friends +Stuart Dyckhoff +Maki Silberberg +Jason Kowing +Sairam Sundaresan which I haven't done in far too long.

The #fivedayquest  is simply posting an image stolen from your life for five days, tag your instigator and another of your (soon to be ex) friends
to join in the fun (that person is free to decline). Today I'll ask +Jorunn Gudlaugsdottir if she would like to play.

#fivedayquest   -- Day 4

A little photo of a photo-making for today. The azaleas are coming into bloom and making their Springtime statement. I was hoping to catch one of the big bumblebees at work but that was not to be. I have 32mm of extension tube attached to the 70-200 lens so I can get a nice close-up of the blossom .

I got tagged into the "one photo a day of your everyday activities" by +Christin McLeod (I'm sure she regrets this by now :) ) and, as part of the chain letter post I need to tag another to join, or not as they choose. +Rachel Ferris are you interested?
