Dave Morrow362,451Inspirational Photographers CircleFor me having a bunch of small circles that I can browse through daily is a much more enjoyable experience than looking through a circle of 500 or so ppl. I often find large circles to be a complete data overload. Here is one of my small circles that I browse through everyday and always enjoy....

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132

Margaret Tompkins30,121>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 Followers>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  *There are NO requirements to share this circle*.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Each has < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle), and most have between 10,000 and 25,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandscapePhotography  theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2012-10-08 18:04:38500337118265

Peter From42,747The AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHERS' FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE Circle#CircleSharingForThePeopleAPCG1   Here is the circle with all the amazing photographer's from all around our globe. If you want some excellent photography in your feed, then make sure that you add this circle. There are lots of new talented people in this revised and validated version.I am proud to promote each and every one of them!Want to join the APCG? Then Read ALL of the following before you ask for inclusion...Who can join?Everybody. You must have a feed that focuses on your own photography though. This is a validated quality circle and I am quite picky when I add people to it. Don't take it personally if I don't add you the first time around.What must you do?As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get accepted:1) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get promoted in the APCG, you must be prepared to promote your fellow photographer as well. Important: Do NOT remove the reshared circle post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares for ever.2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want this circle to be as clean as possible and focus on quality photography –– not other bling-bling. 3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state which kind of photography you are into and that you HAVE completed all steps. I will check every feed. If you don't complete this step, I will not add you to the circle.Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.*This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleAPCG1 so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.* Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-08-15 11:33:34259208172191

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Is there a theme this year? Yes, there is. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World” and the book will be split into three sections - “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”. You can interpret it however you’d like - we’d love to see how you express these. 

Do we accept color or B&W images? Either one is great.

How can you submit the work? Here are simple instructions: 

1 - Download and fill out image release form from here - http://goo.gl/brpX6n (you can even scan it using your phone, or use apps such as SignNow or TurboScan)
2 - Fill out the information about yourself and upload your work here - http://form.jotform.us/form/40565430045144

what is your take on this? is #google  becoming #facebook  ? 

I don't know where I stand on this, I don't like the idea, but then again, I don't see it that bad either, our information is EVERYWHERE now a days, but with me bashing #Facebook  for doing the same, I guess I now have to bash #google  for it as well...

not cool #google, not cool... remember the "don't be evil" BS... where is it now?

I just came back from my "vacation" in Vegas, I couldn't really do what I really wanted, go to Death Valley, but I will be back and I will be prepared next time :) 

I did manage to get this photo while I was departing my home town, doesn't it look cool from up here?

So, one of the best #startrails   photos I've seen, and  by none other than +Elia Locardi ! AMAZING! 

Sleeping Giants || Mt Bromo Indonesia

Surely, I must be staring at some strange and fascinating alien world… Watching the stars dance above this extraordinary landscape... 

Behind the scenes, Post-processing and Camera settings: http://bit.ly/mt-bromo

There are only a few places on our beautiful planet that I would be so confident to call otherworldly. Fewer still that can impose such a profound sense of awe and wonder, where the simple act of seeing is enough to satisfy an avid explorer’s wild curiosity. 

Enter The Tengger Massif

Indonesia houses many visual treasures but Mount Bromo is widely recognized as one of the most impressive. Part of the Tengger Massif and situated in a large caldera, Mt. Bromo is the collapsed remain of a once larger giant. Still active today, it shares proximity with (the active) Mount Semeru, the largest mountain on the island of Java which stands tall at an impressive 3,676 meters (12,060 feet). To give a total sense of scale, the entire area of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park spans a massive 800 square kilometers. 

I spent the better part of 4 days in the area surrounding these extraordinary mountains, sleeping very little, and investing my twilight hours enjoying and photographing the beautiful stars above. In that time, two of the mornings provided me the perfect recipe for crafting my vision - clear skies full of stars and epic fog below. To top it off, my last morning shooting from Penanjakan 1 was complemented with a beautiful cloudy sky.

Read the entire post here: http://bit.ly/mt-bromo

And you can find out how I was photobombed by the International Space Station. ;)

What is Link Litter? And how to avoid it

Google+ is a moving target of ideas, communication and sharing. As the platform builds and grows, the active plussers have taken strong moves towards best practices and are creating guidelines with terminology to fit the evolving social mediums.

If you're wondering why you're posting content but getting zero engagement or +1's, this is why. You're not posting content that grabs people's attention, your link might be great but no one will click it. Link litter is boring and spammy. You may not intend it to be spam but essentially it is.

What is link litter?

Dropping a link with no explanation or text. Just the title of the article and the link.

It doesn’t encourage engagement or gather interest. The link is dropped and bam just sits there gathering dust.

Using this longer form of post style in communities and on regular posts builds interest as well as reaches the people who want to stay on the platform giving them the option of going to read more at the website linked in the post.

And a note about communities, if you're posting the same thing over and over in different communities and they are all hitting your public wall, it looks spammy.

Anybody from Las Vegas?

I am going to Las Vegas on September 18, and I was wondering if there are any places I could do some landscape photographs that do not require a car (Public transit is OK) to get there, I would love to go to Red Rock, or Valley of fire, but since I will not have a car I don't know how to get there on a good hour to photograph (AM or sunset). any tips? or tours that I should consider?

or anyone that would like to show me around some other places to
photograph (that are safe :P) other than the strip?

Thanks!

Sunset Over Marietas Islands

Yesterday the sun settled right behind those island on the horizon, but I didn't had my camera with me, so today I was hoping I'd get the shot I saw yesterday  and just one day later, it moved by what seems to me like a LOT :( but I am still pleased with the result, don't you think ? :)

One year ago yesterday, this is what I thought of +Google+ :) 

One year

Can you guys believe its been one year? 

I never liked FB, I had an account there and really soon decided it was not for me, so I deleted it.

Yesterday one year ago I joined +Google+ by an invitation from one of my friends, I was very skeptical at first, thinking (like many still do) that it was a FB clone, but I gave it a try, and boy was I wrong! 

as quick as I decided I did not like FB I was hooked on Google+, photography being the main reason for me, awesome people giving tutorials, tips and tricks via hangouts from everywhere! like (to name a few) +Trey Ratcliff (of course! :P ) +Jay Patel +Alex Koloskov +Scott Detweiler  from whom I learned so many tricks in Photoshop (thanks Scott!)! all this for free! I could not believe I could be so hooked on a "Social Network" but it was beyond "Social" for me, it was a whole "Network" of people that loved what I loved! and best of all shared it with all these strangers that soon became "Online" friends.

Then there is the "Social" part, people like +J. Rae Chipera +Sumit Sen +Gabriela Bardac +Mike Spinak +Barry Blanchard +Eric Leslie +Elia Locardi +Scott Jarvie +Colby Brown +Sandra Parlow  and many, MANY more! (I know I am forgeting a lot of you, sorry)  that not only share great photos but also share great content and have a lot of engagement that makes my photography experience in Google+ even more meaningful.

there is even the "other" side people with whom I do not totally agree with, but its been so cool chatting with them none the less! its not a childish or I am wrong you are right (oh wait... who says that? :P ) kinda of argument, its a very mature exchange of views most notably +Alexander Safonov  who rants so much about the SUL but I still love his photos and would I like to meet him in person? hell yeah! I don't think I ever felt to meet another troll in person  (I kid!... about the troll part :P ) 
 

this might be cheese for many of you but THANKS to ALL, thanks to +Google+ for creating the best social network I've been apart of (even with the new design... still don't like it! but I forgive you :P) and thanks for sharing all these wonderful photos! I hope to see you guys sharing and sharing for years to come!


P.S.  I know Google+ extends way over photography, but thats my reason for being here, and sorry if my long post bored you! and here is a photo for the non-readers :P ___One year ago yesterday, this is what I thought of +Google+ :)

I wish +Google+ didn't sucked :( I so much miss the old days.

sorry my latest posts have been only to complain about the new layout, but it is the only reason why I do not use +Google+ as much as I did, I just can't stand it, and I tried... I really tried. but oh well a "free" service, if I don't like it I should just leave, right? :)

here is a pretty #photo to make up for my rant :P 

this is in Amapas in #PuertoVallarta  :) hope you like it!

I wish people were I live would read this :( 

Oh snap, can I (legally) use that photo?

Everyday we search for just the right photo for our post on our blog, Facebook or Google+ from a wide variety of sources. But do you have the legal right to use the photo just because it’s online? No. Can you get in trouble for this? Yes. Let’s look at what you can and can’t do to remain a good citizen of the web.

One of the biggest misconceptions is that just because the photo is online that you can post it anywhere. That is NOT true. Don’t do it.

Can I post a photo from Pinterest and put the link to Pinterest as the photo credit? No.

From attorney +Sara Hawkins  attribution does not make it right.

“Taking another person’s image or graphic and giving them a “shout out,” linkback, or any other type of attribution does not negate copyright infringement.”

So, when you need a photo how can you find something that you can use? Here’s a list of 11 places to get a free and legal photo for your blog. “The bottom line is if you can’t afford a stock photo, you certainly can’t afford the fine that comes from stealing one.”

An important point to remember is to properly cite the photo on your blog or social media post once you find a photo that you have permission to use. At the bottom of my blog posts, I add “Photo courtesy of Blah Blah via Creative Commons” with a link in their name to the photo, this is the same text we use on 12 Most. For my social media posts, I list photo credit: NAME/source.

You can also, of course, contact the photographer or artist to request to use permission to use their photo.

I realize that this seems complicated but it really boils down to two main points:

1. If you don’t have permission to use a photo or graphic, don’t use it.

2. Cite all sources. Period.

I hope that this helps you learn a bit more and make more informed decisions on your photo usage. Remember, just because everyone else is doing something, it doesn’t make it right. Be a good citizen and don’t tarnish your reputation.
