Denise Wakeman14,210*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.

Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)131,019*#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 03:00:00142

Vivienne Gucwa (travelinglens)1,776,319This 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 Mapes85,294Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-B - 10 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. 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.2015-04-10 10:39:23139000

Volkan DOBRİCELİ26Mobile PhotographersMobile Photography -- or as I call it  #Mobilography  -- is an artform that, happy to report, has flourished here on Google+. This circle of mobile photographers is not food and cats. It is art, it is creativity, it is beauty and content. Some of the individuals in this circle are film and DSLR photographers as well. The phone camera though is a regular and equally legitimate camera to use in their photography and documentation of their worlds.If you have been notified of this post, you are in the circle.Crowd SourcingI am taking suggestions for people to add to this circle for the future. If you are a mobile photographer, or know a mobile photographer, that isn't in this circle, please mention them here and include a link to a gallery of work.You are not required to share this circle to get into it. I can't stand that gimmick. Share it if you want people to know about our work.#MobilePhotography   #Mobilography   #Mobilographers   #MobilePhotographers   #CircleShare   #SharedCircle  2015-03-26 15:02:264711217

Matt Evans6,231The Richie Benaud Circle (3)Hey legends, this is my 3rd updated share of my Richie Benaud circle, which is filled with everyone who has left a comment on one of my images. I usually share it every 3 months or so.Welcome to all my new commenters :) I'll be sharing this once again after the 12th month (June) then I'll be resetting and starting all over again.It's easy to just click a button to + 1, but it takes a little more effort to comment (which is ironic since I don't comment on much). But I like to share this circle just to say a huge thanks to everyone who has found the time to flaunt those fingers across those keys. Really appreciate it. Stay awesome everybody :)#circleshare   #circles   #circleoftheday   #circleoflegends   #richiebenaud2015-03-23 06:08:01340000

FULL OF NICE AND ACTIVE FRIENDS ;) ==NOW I'M ALSO ADDING PEOPLE TO MY PHOTOGRAPHERS LIST ON FACEBOOK!! https://www.facebook.com/lists/852972128064411Please send me a FB friendship request Indicating your photography interests if you want to be added. ;-)https://www.facebook.com/HaizbeltzI'd like to enhance the quality of this circle by including only profiles with a person behind. If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery! THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there day by day, it is highly appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me.PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promoting artists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)I want this circle to be more a community, a gathering than just a bunch of people who doesn't know each other.Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation. One Circle for all and 2015-02-23 17:33:10499123102157

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

"I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes."
~ e. e. cummings





By special request of +Kathleen Kent I took a trip to the local botanical gardens to see the Blue Poppies. Previous to this visit I knew very little about them, but luckily the gardener filled me in on some of the mysteries surrounding these blooms. Despite the crowd of photographers waiting in line with tripods and macro lenses to get in close to these flowers before they are gone, I managed to grab a few quick frames yesterday to share here.

"Glamour is about feeling good in your own skin."
~ Zoe Saldana



A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a portrait workshop led by +Sam Breach. She taught us about working with models, and how to overcome challenges, both in and out of the studio. While I don't have a lot of professional experience in shooting fashion or glamour, I learned quite a bit in the short time we had to practice. Here is one of the images I captured during that session.

Model: Heather (Posh Vixen)
MUA: Kim (Posh Vixen)
Photographer: © 2015 +Shannon Adelson 
Gear: Nikon D90, Nikkor 70-300
Settings: ISO 200, 190mm, f/8.0, 1/125 sec.
Processing: Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC

I just wanna say thanks...

For the last couple years I've been regularly sharing my images with y'all here on the Plus, and the wonderful curators of the HQSP communities regularly re-share them with their respective followers as well. This is the first time I've ever been nominated for the +HQSP Gold​ list, and I'm super stoked about this honor. I'm not really sure how all the voting and such works, but I sincerely appreciate everyone who takes the time to plus, comment or share my pictures on a daily basis. Google Plus is a unique community that nurtures the growth of artists from within, and I know this because I started with only about 400 followers in the beginning, and recently I reached the 30k milestone.

"The secret of concentration is the secret of self-discovery. You reach inside yourself to discover your personal resources, and what it takes to match them to the challenge."
~ Arnold Palmer



Every week I see +steph wanamaker re-sharing images for the #gingerthursday  theme, but I never had anything to contribute...until now! While we were in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago (with 130 other photographers), there was a little commissary across from the hotel, where everyone enjoyed lunch at the outdoor patio. One day I observed this young lady intently focused on her iPhone. So I took the opportunity to grab a quick snap, with the intention of finally having something to add to the #gingerthursday  theme.

"We learn the rope of life by untying its knots."
~ Jean Toomer




The #MacroMonday  mini-theme this week is "intersection", and while I was at the botanical gardens recently, I came across this unusual branch next to one of the orchid displays. The vines all grew in these twisted curls, weaving in and out, and all around one another. So I'll leave it to the puzzle masters +Jeff Moreau, +Sandra Parlow, +Wendy Baker, and +Julie B  to figure out how it unwinds...

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."
~ Greg Anderson



I had the great privilege of meeting +Ron Clifford in person last weekend, and he definitely embodies the concept of living life to the fullest in every moment. Equally comfortable in a classroom, or leading a caravan of crazy photographers through the desert, Ron was always a beacon of energy that everyone quickly found themselves drawn to. His magnetic personality made us all want to get a little closer, learn a little more, and experience things in the unique way he sees them. There were so many memorable moments, and enough smiles and laughter to last for many months to come...

I could go on all day about his generosity of spirit, his humility, or his incredible sense of humor. But what I'll probably remember most is his... more »

I had the great privilege of meeting +Ron Clifford in person last weekend, and he definitely embodies the concept of living life to the fullest in every moment. Equally comfortable in a classroom, or leading a caravan of crazy photographers through the desert, Ron was always a beacon of energy that everyone quickly found themselves drawn to. His magnetic personality made us all want to get a little closer, learn a little more, and experience things in the unique way he sees them. There were so many memorable moments, and enough smiles and laughter to last for many months to come...

I could go on all day about his generosity of spirit, his humility, or his incredible sense of humor. But what I'll probably remember most is his boundless positive energy. He radiates a powerful vibe that says, we are all artists in this together, so let's go have some fun! And I assure you, not only did we have fun and share some new experiences, but I believe all of our lives were enriched simply by being exposed to his creative way of thinking living.

If you'd like to know more about the remarkable adventures we all had in Nevada, make sure to click on the hashtag #tgsmu15  so you can follow along and be a part of these stories as they continue to unfold.

"I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes."
~ e. e. cummings





By special request of +Kathleen Kent I took a trip to the local botanical gardens to see the Blue Poppies. Previous to this visit I knew very little about them, but luckily the gardener filled me in on some of the mysteries surrounding these blooms. Despite the crowd of photographers waiting in line with tripods and macro lenses to get in close to these flowers before they are gone, I managed to grab a few quick frames yesterday to share here.

ask, and ye shall receive...
yum!

Thank you so much for the wonderful summary +Ayoub Khote​ my taste buds are dripping with anticipation. Having recently joined the gym, and watching my calories carefully, I'm kind of glad this is only available in the UK, otherwise I might lose the battle with temptation. But I really appreciate you taking one for the team, so we can all live vicariously! I will admire the deliciousness from a safe distance...

The Krispy Kreme Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Doughnut 

Because +matthew rappaport posted about them being only available in the UK, and +Shannon Adelson wanted pictures, I went over to my local Krispy Kreme and picked up a few.

Now, let me tell you about them... The crispy, nutty chunks on the top add a very pleasant crunch to the beautifully smooth peanut butter within. The chocolate is sweet, with just enough of a bitter note to let you know it's good chocolate. The doughnut itself is soft and fluffy, with enough of a glaze that the sweetness permeates without becoming overpowering.

The experience is more than the sum of its parts; Krispy Kreme doughnuts are delicious, and Reese's peanut butter cups are delicious, but this marriage of the two is like eating a Reese's peanut butter cup on a cloud, floating in a clear sky... It's the ultimate Reese's experience!

It is the doughnut nirvana that is beyond even Homer Simpson's wildest dreams.

Worth a flight over from the US, I'd say!

The Great Scavenger Meet Up 2015
Las Vegas, NV
#tgsmu15  

When you first arrive in Sin City, you expect to be overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of devious debauchery and delightful decadence. But when you travel to Vegas and meet up with a hundred or more photographers, somehow the dynamic changes considerably, and endless buffets and slot machines are the last things on your mind.

Prior to last weekend, many of the photographers I had befriended over the past few years (here on Google+) I had never actually met in person. But thanks to +Chrysta Rae (and +Nancy Levan) that all changed quite dramatically, and so many of us experienced an indescribable bond like we’d been best friends for years. +Chrysta Rae has been known to say that the Hunt is “the most fun you can have with your camera”.

The Great Scavenger Meet Up 2015

#tgsmu15  

When you first arrive in Sin City, you expect to be overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of devious debauchery and delightful decadence. But when you travel to Vegas and meet up with a hundred or more photographers, somehow the dynamic changes considerably, and endless buffets and slot machines are the last things on your mind.

Prior to last weekend, many of the photographers I had befriended over the past few years (here on Google+) I had never actually met in person. But thanks to +Chrysta Rae (and +Nancy Levan) that all changed quite dramatically, and so many of us experienced an indescribable bond like we’d been best friends for years. +Chrysta Rae has been known to say that the Hunt is “the most fun you can have with your camera”. But it is so much more than that! The photography community here on Google+ is more like a family. 

The people in this Scavenger Hunt community are some of the most generous and gracious individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure to interact with. We come from all walks of life, all skill levels, and from all around the World. Some were shooting with expensive professional gear, and others with a simple cell phone and a dream. Guidance was offered, stories were swapped, techniques were shared, and lots of other tips and tricks throughout our weekend full of wandering desert adventures and frolicking Fremont Street frivolity. 

I left Las Vegas with so many amazing memories, and I plan to continue sharing them with you over the coming weeks. But for now, I’d like to give you a glimpse into the incredible learning opportunities we were exposed to by marvelous mentors including +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford +Pam Boling +Mark Rodriguez +Sam Breach and +Alan Shapiro. 

Although the portrait wizard in the photo below needs no introduction, I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you for the experience of getting to know you, as you shared your wisdom with all of us. Here are my takeaways...


TOP FIVE THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM +Alan Shapiro 

ONE
don’t be afraid to take risks, and make big glorious mistakes, because those “happy accidents” might be a sign you’re on the right path

TWO
photography is like cooking: find the ingredients you like, and create delicious recipes to match your taste

THREE
aim to inspire others as much as (or more than) they’ve inspired you

FOUR
open your eyes and really SEE what’s around you, observing from every angle

FIVE
keep a journal, and note which experiments worked best, so you can do it again


I feel confident that everyone in attendance learned a little something from everyone else around them. I know I did! And that journey continues every day, as I seek out new inspiration, to better understand my own style, and further focus my efforts on achieving my personal and professional goals. 

For more information make sure to check out the other posts attached to the the #tgsmu15  hashtag. If you have any questions about our Las Vegas experience, don’t hesitate to ask any of us. If you find something useful in all of our ramblings, please feel free to share this post with your own friends and followers.

As I'm sure you can imagine, getting 130 photographers together, wandering around the desert during the day, and partying through the night without sleep can be just a bit tiring... So you have to grab a nap when you can, and in this case +Paul Howard plopped right down at the edge of a cliff and reflected on the beauty of nature around him.

#tgsmu15  

You might have noticed I didn't post here much over the last few days, and that's because my wife and I were away attending an epic event in Las Vegas. For the last few years, I've been participating in +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt here on G+.  Last weekend over 100 of these photographers gathered in the desert to meet each other for the first time in real life. It was absolutely surreal, getting to know people we had previously only interacted with online. I can't even begin to describe the overwhelming emotions experienced during these few incredible days. Suffice to say, my wife says she saw me smile more with this group than in all of the last decade!

"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.

"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...

"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! 

If you are one of the nice people that is laughing with me and not at me, then hopefully I'll get to hang out next week with people like +Robin Griggs Wood +Ursula Klepper +Christin McLeod +Sassi Sassmannshausen +LauriNovak +R... more »

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... 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!

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!
