Denise Wakeman13,647*How to grow an active, engaged following on Google Plus - An introduction to Circloscope* As Google+ matures and you begin to add people to your Circles, it can quickly become overwhelming and unwieldy. The biggest challenge  though, is finding the RIGHT people in your niche to connect and engage with for your business. I recently started using Circloscope to manage my Circles and find the best people (for me) to engage with. As an HOA host I find it especially helpful. That's why I've invited  @117778937939543425499, co-founder of Circloscope to hop on a hangout and share with you best practices for managing your Circles.  Christine will also introduce you to Circloscope, a powerful circle management tool that can help you grow an active, engaged following on Google Plus.  *In this hanginar you will learn:* ❂ Tips and best practices for managing your circles on Google Plus. ❂ How to use Circloscope to connect with the people engaging with and sharing content in your niche. ❂ Why you need to clean up and add new people to your circles on a regular basis. ❂ That is doesn't take nearly as many followers as you think to take your engagement to a whole new level! *About Christine DeGraff* Christine DeGraff is an entrepreneur w/17 yrs experience in web development, SEO and Internet marketing. Christine is a co-founder of Circloscope.com, a circle management tool to help users manage and grow their circles on Google Plus.

So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout!  _Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST._ Have a question you would like us to ask Alan?

Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)131,147*#Spartacus : War Of The Damned* Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, it has become a force that has started to challenge even the mighty armies of Rome. Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following the death of Ashur, Naevia and Crixus fight as one with newfound strength and determination. And Gannicus, always seeking to embrace life to the fullest, shares his bed with the beautiful and dangerous Saxa. Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome. The Roman Senate turns to its wealthiest citizen, Marcus Crassus, for aid. A powerful, strategic politician, he respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion. The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, Spartacus: War of the Damned will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.Spartacus: War of the Damned [Season Premiere]2013-01-26 03:00:00141

Vivienne Gucwa1,759,877This is the official page for this awesome event. Led by myself (Alan Shapiro and Sharon Strandskov were there in spirit :) ) The meeting up point is Columbus Circle at 1:00 pm.  We have a nice path planned that will include several really beautiful locations throughout Central Park including (but subject to change): The Mall (and Literary Walk), Bethesda Fountain, Bow Bridge, Shakespeare's Garden, Strawberry Fields and Belvedere Castle! We also have some fun ideas up our sleeves for everyone that will utilize this event page space (particularly the shared album). Bring your walking shoes and a smile. This walk is open to everyone with or without a camera. Even if you don't have a camera but just want to come and celebrate, feel free! This event is all about celebrating the awesomeness of G+ on its one year anniversary! :) --- #gplusanniversary #gplusanniversarynycThe Official NYC Google Plus One Year Anniversary Photowalk2012-06-30 13:00:0066

Gailen Mapes78,655Note: next month this circle will be split. *Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 30*Note: 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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.2015-02-14 12:33:02215001

This first one is my "small" Photography circle of people I mainly found in the beginning over two years ago, although the size of this circle has doubled in the last twelve months. These are people whose posts I don't want to miss even when I don't have time to look at all the other circles. Don't be disappointed if you're not in there - there are two much bigger photo circles coming up next!2014-12-30 16:36:31269816

Gailen Mapes73,565Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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.2014-12-14 12:07:07194000

~ Charles Evans Hughes




Well, today is the start of a new week, and that means it's time for #MacroMonday  again, and sharing some up close and personal images with our favorite curators: +Sandra Parlow, +Jeff Moreau, +Wendy Baker and +Jules B. I guess the weekly mini theme is "Everyday", and since I live practically next to the botanical gardens, shooting or editing flowers each day is pretty much a guarantee! I went into the greenhouse to look at the orchids, but this day lily jumped out and caught my attention!

"God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy!"

I haven't shared a video in a while, and this one struck a chord with me, so I wanted to pass it along to y'all. I like to listen to music while I'm editing photos, and normally I just let the tunes play in the background. But the other day I happened to catch the video for this jam, and it completely changed my interpretation...

Check it out when you get a chance, and let me know what you think.

Have you ever listened to a song, then saw the accompanying music video and had a different opinion about it?

In this case I felt the story took on a whole new meaning, and really made me think about the poignant moments expressed. What first seemed comical and lighthearted soon became profound and introspective.

My friend +Julian Ortiz is going to be part of an exhibit later this month in DC. If you or someone you know live in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area (or the surrounding region), I encourage you to check out his work. His street photography is truly unique, and embraces the old school (B&W) film aesthetic. Click on the original post below to learn more...

EXPOSEDDC 2015 - Opening reception - March 12th, 6 to 10 p.m.

Like some of you know, one of my photos, "next car reader "(http://goo.gl/SNqy06) was selected to be part of the 2015 +Exposed DC Annual Photography Show.
Here is the info of the opening reception:

venue: 1358 NE (Capital Fringe headquarters)
address: 1358 Florida Ave NE - Washington, DC 20002

Two floors of awesome D.C. photography
Available for first-time art-buyer prices
Selection of locally-made beers from Bluejacket
Complimentary wine

Full-color program exhibition available for $10
*$14 in advance: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/9982244*
$20 at the door

Maybe for a lot of you it is going to be impossible to go, but I'm pretty sure that you know someone that live here or a friend that have a friend that live here in the DC area, so I'm asking you to share all the information of the show. Like the old times, when I was the singer of a hardcore punk band and no internet. Just the simple but effective way to promote a show: a flyer and/or mouth to mouth.

If you live here in the area, come and say hi!. Don't be shy, My English has an strong Argentine accent, but it is going to be fun, and you are going to see and meet 40 DC photographers that is going to show you the city in a different way!

Thanks is advance for the share!___My friend +Julian Ortiz is going to be part of an exhibit later this month in DC.

"Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides."
~ Junichiro Tanizaki






I understand the #MacroMonday  sub-theme this week is "Shadows", so here is my submission. Many thanks to the curators for their tireless efforts reviewing and commenting on everyone's posts. +Sandra Parlow +Wendy Baker +Jules B and of course last but definitely not least, the birthday boy +Jeff Moreau. Yeah, I know buddy, I'm a little late to the party, but I hope you'll forgive my tardiness, as I was tired from shoveling ice last night, and didn't get to post on time...

"Just a second, I'm almost ready for my closeup..."

As you can see, this #seagull  was a little bit of a diva, and had to finish primping before letting me click the shutter and capture some of those fancy feathers. Little did she know I had the focus beep turned OFF, so I could freely snap away quietly with these blackmail test shots...

Anyway, if you haven't already guessed today is #splatterday , or as the #gulluminati  are known to call it: #seagullbuttsaturday .  Obviously you must know by now that this is a #nontheme . So don't go looking for fancy curators and all that, just tell the little birdie she looks perfect the way she is, before she flies away again...

Anyway, if you haven't already guessed today is #splatterday , or as the #gulluminati  are known to call it: #seagullbuttsaturday .  Obviously you must know by now that this is a #nontheme . So don't go looking for fancy curators and all that, just tell the little birdie she looks perfect the way she is, before she flies away again...___

"Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see."
~ C. S. Lewis



We got just about three inches of snow where I live, and after seeing all the snow-covered imagery from +Natosha Davis I was inspired to venture out into the cold and grab a few snaps of my own from last night's snowfall. I played around with the filter gallery in Photoshop, until I got something that looked like a scene out of a storybook. There's a farm near our house that house horses, goats, llamas, and a few other random animals. So I snapped away, and will share from that batch in the coming days...

"Where is everybody? Did I miss the party?"

I could've sworn those other birds said we were all gonna hang out on Sunday! But it seems like I'm the only one here. I wonder where the rest of the fine feathered flock has gone? I was looking forward to watching the disco ball spin and shaking my #seagullbutt  to the rhythm and groove jams. They said don't dress fancy, because this is #notatheme  and they suggested I wouldn't want to stand out and be ridiculed by the #gulluminati . But I guess the joke is on me, because the #funniestnonthemeongplus  was actually yesterday on #seagullbuttsaturday  and apparently I missed it!

Risks and Rewards

You can shoot plenty of lovely images using the "Auto" settings on your camera, and most people are satisfied with the results. In fact, the computer technology inside today's cameras is so advanced, many of the choices it makes are perhaps even better than we can see with our naked eye. However, if you want to step outside your comfort zone and go from taking pictures to making them, then this is definitely a great place to start!

Like I said, your camera will automatically assess the lighting conditions, and sometimes even give you a pretty good guess at the correct exposure you might want. But a computer doesn't think like a human, so it doesn't interpret "Art" the way we do, because it doesn't know the difference between an artistic choice versus a pre-programmed response to a specific set of conditions.

So if you are... more »

Sign up here for the Camera Basics: Beyond Automatic 3 mentorship!


►►► Read the instructions before you sign up! ◄◄◄

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you get to know your camera better and be able to move into Manual shooting mode. A group of mentors will be taking on a handful of people for a 6-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

We have assembled a very able group of quality, knowledgeable and caring photographers from the Google+ community who want to share their understanding and experience with you.


PLEASE NOTE: This is a camera BASICS workshop only, designed to help an individual past shooting on Auto mode exclusively. It will cover how to use the various manual options for DSLR cameras and some "point and shoot" cameras that have a dedicated Manual mode. Do not apply for this workshop if your camera does not have a Manual mode. 

Group size is LIMITED.

Signups will be open for several days, and are not first-come first-served.  Selections will be announced by Thursday, Feb 26th, and the first lesson post will be Saturday, Feb 28th.

So if you are ready to take your shooting skills to the next level, I recommend checking out this mentorship below. You will learn to go beyond the typical parameters for deciding how to capture an image, and be able to use each and every function of your camera as a tool for capturing the images you envision.

If you are interested, please sign up on the original post, and be careful to thoroughly answer all of the questions listed as best you can. Good Luck!

"We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.





How many of my followers here are also viewers of the medical drama Grey's Anatomy? I grew up back in the '80s when "E.R." was pretty much the only choice for that genre of TV. And while it was a decent show, it doesn't hold a candle to the amount of passion and emotion every time I watch an episode of Grey's. The writing is brilliant, and mixes just the right amount of comedy with tragedy, keeping us fully invested in the lives of the characters and their issues. I dare you to watch an entire season without needing tissues nearby... I can barely get through one episode lately without being reduced to tears, feeling the pain they struggle through trying to make the best of challenging situations.

How many of my followers here are also viewers of the medical drama Grey's Anatomy? I grew up back in the '80s when "E.R." was pretty much the only choice for that genre of TV. And while it was a decent show, it doesn't hold a candle to the amount of passion and emotion every time I watch an episode of Grey's. The writing is brilliant, and mixes just the right amount of comedy with tragedy, keeping us fully invested in the lives of the characters and their issues. I dare you to watch an entire season without needing tissues nearby... I can barely get through one episode lately without being reduced to tears, feeling the pain they struggle through trying to make the best of challenging situations. For those of you that haven't seen the last few episodes, I won't spoil it for you. Needless to say, there is a fair amount of disappointment balanced with the quest for spirituality in a world seemingly void of hope.

I chose the quote above because no matter what faith you come from, I think it's important to believe in something. Even if all you can cling to is uncertainty and chaos, at least you can grab firmly onto that idea, knowing that even if it doesn't mean anything to anyone else, it means something to YOU.

I struggle nearly every day with frustrations about my career, my future, my choices -- but despite all my fears, I'm blessed to be surrounded with people who believe stronger than I do. So for every time you are feeling hopeless, take a deep breath, and be grateful for everything that has gone right, and stop dwelling on the things that go wrong. Trust me, I know this advice is much easier said than done. But hope is the thing that allows the light from a single candle to brighten an entire room full of darkness. So as we approach that overly commercialized holiday full of flowers and chocolates, I want to take a moment and say thank you and let all my favorite peeps (you know who you are) know how much you mean to me, and that I love being part of this community with you!

"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning."
~ Gloria Steinem




This is by no means the sharpest photo I've ever taken. And I can't really take credit for the artistic interpretation, since this was just one of the test shots while getting to know my new tripod. However, despite not nailing the shutter speed, I loved the happy accident of muted pastel colors in the background against the vibrant petals in the foreground. So instead of deleting it, I decided to play around with it a bit in Lightroom. Hope you like the result...

"Life is not so much about beginnings and endings as it is about going on and on and on. It is about muddling through the middle."
~ Anna Quindlen




Today the marvelous folks curating the #MacroMonday  theme gave us the topic "in the middle", so I thought what better choice for this sub-theme than a flower missing half of its outer shell. +Jeff Moreau +Sandra Parlow +Jules B +Wendy Baker Hope y'all like it!


Today also happens to be the Birthday of one of my absolute favorite Plussers, who I credit with originally introducing me to the #MonochromeMonday  theme. I can't believe another year has passed so quickly, and I know it has been full of many changes in your life. Even though we aren't able to chat daily like we used to, just wanted you to know you and your family are in my thoughts!

"Guess what day it is???? Nope it's not Hump Day (yet)! It is, however, an important Birthday..."

Happy Birthday! +Nancy Levan 

I first encountered Nancy through the Scavenger Hunt, then later had the opportunity to HIRL at Photoshop World. When she's not busy organizing and coordinating for the Scavenger Dream Team, she can be found behind the lens capturing beauties like this one!

She's probably in your Circles already, but if not, pop on over there and check out her pics. Oh yeah, and don't forget to wish her a Happy Belly Button Day too!

"When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free."
~ Charles Evans Hughes




Well, today is the start of a new week, and that means it's time for #MacroMonday  again, and sharing some up close and personal images with our favorite curators: +Sandra Parlow, +Jeff Moreau, +Wendy Baker and +Jules B. I guess the weekly mini theme is "Everyday", and since I live practically next to the botanical gardens, shooting or editing flowers each day is pretty much a guarantee! I went into the greenhouse to look at the orchids, but this day lily jumped out and caught my attention!

"Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution."
~ Ansel Adams



Yesterday marked the beginning of the Orchid Extravaganza, a festival of flowers held each year at the local botanical gardens. I went over there this afternoon to check out some of the various blooms they are featuring this time. As soon as you enter through the second set of double doors into the climate controlled greenhouse, you are immediately overwhelmed by the heavenly aroma of orchids. According to the map there are approximately 5,000 orchids on display. I look forward to sharing many more with you as I visit again later in the week...

"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous."
~ Aristotle





I just read over on another network that today is Squirrel Appreciation Day, can you believe there's a holiday for that? Well, as if we needed yet another excuse to post our favorite squirrel images, today is the day to share your best pics of these sneaky creatures. I imagine +Dave Besbris will have some wonderful examples to share with us all. And even though it isn't Saturday yet, perhaps +Beth Blackwell and +Skippy Sheeskin might even throw a few pics into the mix. So let's see what y'all got, m'kay?
