If you can't stick to the theme no worries either, since we are freshly back and running any selfie you take is fine.  Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Selfie Sunday. http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8 Your photo can be taken from Mar. 30/15 before the event up until 8:00 AM EDT Monday Apr. 6/15.

Brian Matiash1,482,630I recently announced that my brand new +SmugMug portfolio site went live (http://portfolio.brianmatiash.com) and that prints are now available for sale! We had so much fun with the announce that I wanted to continue the good times today. With Valentine's Day in full swing, what better way is there to show yourself how much you love YOU than by winning a 1 YEAR Membership with SmugMug? :) Before we get to the contest details, I want to share a crazy deal that any _new customer_ can take advantage of - SmugMug has been extremely generous and is letting me offer a *25% discount* off of *any* of their four tiered membership packages. To get in on this deal, just use the coupon code *BMASH* when you set up your new account. That is a ridiculously good deal and like all good deals, it expires on _Feb 23, 2013 at the stroke of 11:59PM Pacific/US._ Now onto the contest details - which are very straightforward. I want to you to share your *one, single* image that you think would benefit most from having its own SmugMug Gallery. Just share your image right here in this event and tag it with #SmugMash . *Now, creativity and strength of vision count here!* If you want to share a little ditty about what makes this image so important to you and why you'd want to share it on your own SmugMug gallery, be sure to include that. The contest will run for one week, ending next *Thursday, February 21st at 11:59AM Pacific/US time*. There will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. The first place winner will receive a complimentary 1 year SmugMug *Business* membership. The second place winner will receive a complimentary 1 year SmugMug *Portfolio* membership. Finally, the third place winner will receive a complimentary 1 year SmugMug *Power* membership. If you're already an existing SmugMug member (good for you!) and you win, you will be upgraded to the respective tier that you placed in or if you placed in the tier that you are currently a member of, SmugMug will extend your account by 1 year. Please tag your comments and/or posts with #SmugMash  to make aggregating the entries easier! So who will be judging this contest? Aside from me, I am so excited to have three amazing SmugMug friends helping out. First, we have _the_ go-to person for all of SmugMug's friends, the lovely and insanely sweet +Katherine Cheng. Next up is SmugMug's social butterfly, loyal father of Rocky the Dog, and the harvester of  #Bonocorns far and wide, +Michael Bonocore. Finally, the co-founder of SmugMug, crazy lover of hanging gigantic prints of jaw-dropping images, and the generally huggable +Chris MacAskill.  One more thing - if you're a new customer who takes advantage of the 25% discount code ( *BMASH* ) today AND ends up winning one of the prizes, SmugMug will automatically tack on another year to your new account. Pretty, pretty, pretty sweet if you ask me. So that's that. I hope you all have fun with this contest. We can't wait to see the amazing work that you guys 'n gals posWin some LOVE! Well… some SmugMug LOVE!2013-02-15 00:00:00131

Kelli Seeger Kim1,298,219It's @112471890387110967375 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But @117681034834791918293 and I couldn't wait any longer!) Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.   What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.   Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.   We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-) So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058

Gailen Mapes85,445Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera P-R - 16 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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.

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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes  .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-16 10:46:42124002

Charles Payet6,779A VERY Rare Shared Circle: My Absolute Favorite PlussersAs many of those whom I know on Google+ are aware, it can be kind of daunting at times to keep up with a G+ Stream when you follow several thousand people.  Thanks to the wonderful education by people in the +Plus Your Business! Academy last year, I did learn a lot more on how to manage my Stream, but I still need to work more on refining my Circles.  Still, I've made some slight progress.  Obviously, +Circloscope is a very helpful tool for this.But for whatever reason, I decided to Share this Circle.  This is my ONLY Notification Circle, to avoid Notification Overload.  :-)  Some of them are quite prolific posters, some are moderate, and some only post rarely.  They generally fall into the following categories:(1) Social media(2) Deep thinkers(3) Science(4) Photography(5) Curmudgeon (had to include this category specifically for Vincent LOL  But he's my kind of curmudgeon.)There are obviously a LOT more people worth following on G+, and by no means do I intend any slight to anyone not included.  I had to be VERY picky about this list.+Chrysta Rae +Sanjiv Manifest +Vincent Messina +Lauri Novak +Craig Szymanski +Gina Fiedel +Kalebra Kelby +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales +Mark Metternich +Don Komarechka +Athena Carey +Mark Bruce +2015-02-22 14:31:3519000

Ok - so I'm seeing some confusion about collections amongst my photo friends about collections...

Let me try to unconfuse you...

What I'm seeing is that people aren't sure about the check box that makes your collections automatically followed by your circlers.

People are afraid that they are going to be spamming people with things they don't want to see if they keep this box checked.

Let me explain:  

Your followers follow you, right?  Right now they see (or potentially see) every thing you post publicly.  It doesn't matter what it is.  It could be your scenic photos, your caturday photos, your political posts, your stories about your grandma...   they see it all without collections.  right?

Ok...  so, now, enter collections...

When you create a collection, the default is for all of your followers to beautoma... more »

Thankful

You know....   now and again it's good to think of something we can be thankful for.  In fact, it's one of the things I most often ask people to think about at the end of my yoga classes, during relaxation period....  something to be thankful for.

I'm feeling thankful that I have friends, literally from all over the world who care.

There are a lot of people in this world and we all have something to say.  It's overwhelming at times, trying to hear it all in amongst the noise and clutter that we all can make.

But I am thankful, and grateful, that there are people who care about what I have to say - even though it's not often something important or profound.

So, thank you, friends, for just being out there, and liking, plussing and commenting on my silly little things that I say and do.  For laughing with me, andeven... more »

So, thank you, friends, for just being out there, and liking, plussing and commenting on my silly little things that I say and do.  For laughing with me, and even sometimes at me (which I am totally ok with because I laugh at myself all the time)    For encouraging me in my artistic works,for being happy for me when I have an accomplishment to share.  For putting up with my Yoga and gym posts.   For accepting me for who I am, no matter how silly, or grumpy or boring I get.  

Thank you for showing me your works of art, accomplishments, and thoughts.  For trusting me with your own silly things, and for just being my friends.

ATTENTION MACRO MONDAY SHOOTERS!!!

Just resharing this seeing as tomorrow is the first day with new curators!!  ;)

The End of the Story

Dear Macro Monday shooters...

Tonight I am officially announcing my departure from the Macro Monday team.  I've been on the team for about a year and a half and it's been so much fun!  I've gotten to meet so many new people, and enjoy their great macro art - but the time has come for me to move on.

I'm finding time a challenge these days, and I have a feeling that I need to make a few changes to what I'm doing with my photography, and perhaps find a new "focus" if you will.

Along with me, +Jeff Moreau  and +Wendy Baker  are also retiring, but we have found new curators!!

+Julie B is staying and joining her are +John Dusseault  +Marilyn Benham  and +Nina Katajamaki  - all of them regular Macro Monday posters, and excellent photographers!

I have no doubt that Macro Monday is in excellent hands, and that you will all continue to enjoy it just as much if not more!

Thank you all for being so awesome and playing with us each week!  For thinking outside the box and making progress in your efforts!  I've truly enjoyed it!!

+Jeff Moreau  you and I started this journey at the same time and we've formed an awesome friendship during the last year and a half.  I love ya and I still think you're cute!!   ;)   Thanks for being such an awesome, awesome partner..  hugs..

Now, before I get too emotional, I will tell you that next week's theme is RUST and not to forget to tag your new team of +Julie B  +John Dusseault  +Nina Katajamaki  and +Marilyn Benham !!!!

MWAH!!!___ATTENTION MACRO MONDAY SHOOTERS!!!

Ok - so I'm seeing some confusion about collections amongst my photo friends about collections...

Let me try to unconfuse you...

What I'm seeing is that people aren't sure about the check box that makes your collections automatically followed by your circlers.

People are afraid that they are going to be spamming people with things they don't want to see if they keep this box checked.

Let me explain:  

Your followers follow you, right?  Right now they see (or potentially see) every thing you post publicly.  It doesn't matter what it is.  It could be your scenic photos, your caturday photos, your political posts, your stories about your grandma...   they see it all without collections.  right?

Ok...  so, now, enter collections...

When you create a collection, the default is for all of your followers to be automatically following the collection.  If you make your collection public, they will still see everything you post.  Nothing has changed at all.  You're not spamming anyone - it's business as usual.

Now, let's say that you uncheck that box...  so that your followers are NOT automatically following your collection.  Now, when you post to that collection ONLY the people who have found that collection and followed it will see those posts.  So.. if Joe unchecks that box for his "super de dooper star trails" collection - I will no longer see them..  most likely because I don't know they exist - because they will not be in my stream any more.  The only way I'll see them is to visit Joe's page.. and let's face it.... who has time to visit Joe's page and everyone else that they circle?  

Yeah - not many of us..

So...  right now you may be asking "what's the point?"

Well, here's the point...

If Joe has a collection for his star trails and his caturday and his grandmom's stories and his political posts, I can pick and choose what I want to see.  I can visit his page, check out his collections and unfollow the political posts and the caturday photos.

 The damn guy posts 5 cat photos each Saturday and he starts on Friday night and still is going strong on Sunday.  I'm sick of his political rants and even though I love to see his star trails, he's pissing me off and I just can't take it any more... so I'm thinking about uncircling him..

but now I don't have to.  I can just uncircle his Caturday and poliitical collections!  I don't have to be annoyed by him and he no longer has to feel that he shouldn't post certain things because it will annoy people.  

But he HAS to use his collections for this to work.  

On the other hand..  if his star trails are the ONLY thing of his I want to see - I can just follow that collection and I don't have to circle him if I don't want to - kind of nice for people who's circles are full, right?  

amiright?!! ;)

Ok, so hopefully that cleared some stuff up for you.

For my own use, I have created a few collections.  they are all checked to be automatically followed with the exception of one.  I feel that the people who follow me here do it for my photos, so it's ok for me to have them following my photos.  My yoga collection, however, I unchecked - because that's not what the majority of my followers follow me for.  It's out of my norm.  I created it mostly for me to keep cool ideas and things that I can refer back to - if someone else finds it useful they can follow along.  I can now keep that collection on my own page and not in my follower's streams and bother them with stuff they may not want to see from me.  

I can see this being a valuable asset moving forward for us to all fine tune our streams to make them more of what WE want to see - but it takes a village to raise a child.. or in this case...  a community to clean up their act.  ;)___

So I have created a few collections...  here is one of them..  a collection of some of my more interesting (I think) works of digital art and composite work.

Thanks for looking ;)

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Edit : Have questions about Collections?  Join this community for Help, Tips & Tricks : http://goo.gl/meRk8j___Looks pretty cool, if you ask me!!!

Looks like it might be of good use to us all!!! Have you created any collections yet?!

What Collections Are (Not)

Google+ now has a new feature, obviously, called Collections. But what are they and what can you do with them? This post is designed to give some inspiration and tips as to how to use Collections.

First off, collections are not the Google+ variation on Pinterest or Flipboard. More on what they are will adequately dispel the idea that these are any similar to Pinterest of Flipboard, so we can leave it at that.

Following

There are two sides to the collections feature, collecting and following. I'll deal with collecting last, as following is briefer. As far as following is concerned, collections will simply open up the door to more nuanced ways to follow/unfollow people. Initially, everyone now starts off following all the collections of everyone else. That's where we have been in the past. We already have:

- Follow everything from someone. 

- Follow nothing from someone. 

- View topic specific communities to get just that kind of content. 

Collections however give us a layer of nuance that is going to change much of how we interact on Google+, as individuals and as brands. What we get (follow wise) with collections:

- Follow everything from someone and get notifications from a specific collection. (Each collection has a notification setting, in case we want to get notified when that person shares into that specific collection. The notification only happens if new content is shared directly to the collection, and not if pre-existing posts are moved to a collection.)

- Follow everything from someone except what they put in a specific collection. (This is especially great if you enjoy most of a person's content, but don't want to see their selfy/cat/gif/food collection. Luckily for you, they put those things in a collection, just in case you wish to unfollow it.)

- Follow only a collection or two of someone, but don't follow them! (Let's say that person doesn't put their cat posts in a collection. But you really love that photography collection they have. Simply unfollow them from your circle but continue to follow that particular collection of their content. The long term result is, if you post mixed content, it pays to use collections for different topics. If you don't nuance how you post, people can't nuance how they follow.)

- The option then is to have notifications on or off for some of all of these collections, whether you follow the person/page or not.

Again, this is a nuanced kind of following.

Inspiration

But let's move on to collecting, because you'll likely want to make your own. Again, if you don't nuance how you share by using collections, people can't nuance how they follow you. With collections, you can build up multiple audiences, both for brand and profiles.

- Make an album of similar posts. Here is my Start Coding with JavaScript collection, in which you can find a couple posts dedicated to that page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/0hySX (by placing these in a specific collection, people can unfollow just this one while still follow me, or do the reverse and follow this one but not follow me or any of my other collections).

- Make a to-read list: make a private collection only visible to you. Share your favorite posts from others into it. Weeks later, when the posts are really far down your profile, you can access them quickly from the collections tab in your profile.

- Make a family album that only people in your family circle can see. Sharing into that collection means sharing only to them, and also gives them easy access to all other posts in that collection.

- Make a spammy post collection. Hang on to followers. As a convenience, post all your cat .gif, food posts and super-diamond-engagement circle share posts into a collection so that people don't unfollow you but instead unfollow just that group of posts. Please do so now. It is a convenience.

- Make a songlist by sharing your SoundCloud songs.

- Make collections to target audiences. Communities have categories for patrons to more easily navigatenavigate and interact on the basis of topics. We do this as well using hashtags. Now, pages and profiles themselves can allow for more topic based interaction.

- Make a collection of all your reshares to highlight others, easily accessible from the collection tab on your profile.

Ways of Viewing Collections

Think of collections this way. Labels are to Gmail emails what circles are to Google+ profiles. Each email and each profile can be in multiple labels or circles, respectively. We aren't talking multiple copies.

Collections, on the other hand, are to posts what albums are to images. Images on Google+ can't be in more than one album, and post can only (currently) be in one collection. To put something in a collection, it has to be a post. A collection is an album of posts.

Think of it as a personal hashtag. If you hashtag a post, clicking on that hashtag will take you to all posts by all people using that tag. However, collections are like a hashtag that, when you click on it, only takes you to that "tag" by that one person.

This allows you to aggregate, collect, organize, categorize your posts.

There are many many other ways to use the feature. It is a major change in how we interact.

Time Well Spent

I know that sunsets are so cliche'..  every photographer has tons of them taking up space on their hard drives.  There is nothing particularly spectacular about this one, other than the fact that it is my own.  I don't mean because it's MY photo - but because each one is unique, and I sat and quietly watched the sun go down.  It takes time to just sit and watch the sun sink.  Quiet moments of listening to the frogs croak.  Quite moments of the breeze getting cold and maybe even just a little uncomfortable.  Quiet moments of just sitting there, seemingly staring off into space, but really you are looking deep inside.

A few quiet moments of time well spent.  

Have a glorious Friday, my friends!

Spring Has Sprung

I didn't find much to shoot last night, but I finally got out with my camera for the first time in months.  I didn't get a lot of shots, but it was a beautiful evening and I really enjoyed just being out there....

Lazarus and I

A month or two ago I got +Glyn Dewis 's Photoshop book on compositing and I wanted to do something to kick off the new learning adventure I'm trying to take myself on.

It took me a while to peruse the book and form an idea of something to try.  

I had taken this photo of Lazarus a few years ago while at a wildlife preserve in Arizona and thought I could make something with him. Then trying to decide what background to use took me a long time.  I tried several of them - finally settling on this forest scene I took  a few falls ago.   

I used quite a few of the techniques in the book, and there is still SO much more in it that I didn't make use of!  Still lots to learn.... 

Awesome book, Glyn!  I don't like to buy books unseen, but I was told by +Christopher Germano  and a few others that it was really good,and I'... more »

OOPS!  I lost my head!
Sometimes it's nice to just lose your head in a good book.  Immerse yourself in something that is not of your life...



I just realized that I missed putting this one into my album, so thought I'd get it all caught up....
