Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+

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 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Gene Bowker45,875First Name T-ZThe #photographerstofollow  2013 #alphabetcircles Curated by +Gene Bowker So who are these folks? And why are they photographers to follow?First of all.. this circle contains a bunch of my closest friends on G+. The folks that I spend the most time "with" on here.  There are a bunch of great photographers and just as importantly "good people" here.How I decide who to circle and share:1) Active : They have posted within the last month. With the holidays a lot of folks have slowed down but these folks are still there. Yes, I visited each stream.2) Original : These photographers are sharing mostly  "THEIR OWN WORK" and their stream is mostly photography. 3) Interactive : I try to find folks who are interactive and comment on their own posts and the posts of others.4) Honestly, 99% of them circle me too. I usually figure if someone doesn't circle back, they are no longer interested in my work and I make room for someone else in my circlingThere are some names you will recognize in here for sure, but there are also some folks you probably don't know yet. Hopefully you will take some time to check them out and see if they have room in your circles.Any omissions are wholy on me too as no one asked for did anything to be included in here.I hope you'll reshare in your stream!Why?I love it when people take the time to reshare these circles.It allows my friends to be introduced to your friends.. and promotes some great photography on G+.Not in hereThere is no need to ask for inclusion.  I add folks as I come across them,  you can read more about how I select athttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/NeJZXLJ6oQBBe Original.

Michael B. Stuart19,214MSD 3 BETAIt's time to upgrade my "Must See Daily" circle.I need to slim down a bit.  I'd like 150 but under 200 might be a better goal.  Feel free to tell me who I'm missing before the final release.About this circleThis circle is heavy photography for obvious reasons, but it also showcases some of the best Google+ has to offer.  If you would like to improve your stream there is no better solution!Notes:- Some truly original and unique content- My own go to circle- Hand selected, organically chosen (huh?  This release post is a bit first drafty too.  I will probably highlight some circle members as I have before...) #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #beta  2012-12-26 05:42:0624259529CC G+
Brunner Nathan1,086The 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.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography 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 photographerr 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   #Sharedcircles2012-12-24 08:19:0850022323CC G+

The Royal Ontario Museum

When they announced a few years back, they said the extension to the Museum would be all glass. Little did they realize after they built the extension that the consistent sunlight would harm the artifacts within. So they came up with... these things.... that aren't exactly pretty. Le sigh

While I found it hard to find a good angle to shoot from, I figured I should just go for something abstract. And a little day-time long exposure certainly didn't help with the final image...

Announcing Toronto's Drink and Click Photowalk in February! 

As we're all too familiar, it's rather cold outside these days and thought we should do something slightly different this month - a tour of a huge brewery downtown Toronto!

I was able to score a discounted rate for a group - $10 total each. We get to have a slightly-extended tour for us, about 45 minutes long. And after we get a nice cold pint as well! 

The plan would be to continue the walk into the cold after for some shots in Brookfield Place. There's plenty of architecture to shoot along the way and have some fun. 

Feel free to share with anybody who you think would be interested. Please RSVP sooner rather than later so I can account for the amount of people that will attend the tour and can't wait to meet up with you all!!

When the snow falls, I run out to try and capture that little bit of magic a Winter can bring. Since it's almost done, I can't imagine there will be many more snow falls that I can shoot in. 

So I went to a local dog park ... and nobody was there. Good thing I waited around for another 5 minutes - it was like the entire dog neighbourhood showed up! 

This specific one just rolled around in the snow and started howling at nothing in particular... just being a happy guy

Wow. Carsten Krieger summed up his disappointment with Canon very well. I love my Canon 5D Mark III and all, but with the innovation that seems to be going on there, it feels like the support system is not quite there for photographers. 

Unleash your awesomeness Canon!! I believe in you. But will you???

Get your cameras, batteries & coats ready! We're headed on a photo walk downtown to get some cool portraits for this month's challenge. With the lights of Yonge/Dundas Square in the background, we're bound to get something awesome!

I'll have details shortly on where we'll meet. Most likely at Three Brewers or the Firkin just a little more South. I want to ensure we shoot during Blue Hour for some nice light and with a little luck - a little bit of warmer weather! 

Can't wait to see you all Saturday!

Just a Little Bit Farther Out

On the world-wide +Instagram Instameet last weekend. The fog was very heavy in Toronto but provided a dark, mysterious feeling throughout the city.

This is a fellow photog that is popular on Instagram with a few thousand followers. I was lucky to meet some Toronto photogs that are only sharing on that social platform. While G+ is more wonderful for me to see photos from around the world, I get inspired by following people in my city. 

How do you use Instagram??

Snowflake-a-Day #43

Here's a very strange one, but it is indeed a snowflake! You'll want to zoom in and check out the odd details!

This is one of the most bizarre snowflakes I've come across. Probably growing at warmer temperatures near the freezing point, it shows signs of containing multiple capped columns, arrowhead crystals and crossed plates. These types of crystal formations are not nearly as common to observe, because they melt very quickly and usually only occur at the beginning or end of the winter season in my part of the world.

Multiple Capped Column crystals are column-style crystals where extra plates begin growing out the sides due to imperfections in the crystal structure - common when this type of crystal encounters water droplets that "seed" new crystals on the surface of an already-established column.

Oddly enough, taken last night on a little Winter shoot in Toronto for some long-exposures.

Follow the Rabbit Hole

First attempt at shooting inside the subway. Probably 25 images were shot, only one, maybe two, are usable. 

Ah well... I'm learning...

On an +Instagram  #Instameet  Photo walk a few weeks back in Toronto. Sometimes you just gotta get a selfie because damn it, nobody else is taking photos of you...

A Dog Waits for his Coffee

Even on cold days like this in Toronto (currently -22C), a dog requires a cup o' joe...

Lena

I was lucky enough to meet +Lena Dawood  during some photo walks last year in Toronto, probably due to +Rob Elliott & +Ron Clifford's insistence that she come out and shoot with people she doesn't personally know!

She's a local photographer in the GTA that I'm happy to shoot with. Her work as a photographer is always a pleasure to look at.

Go ahead and circle her if you haven't already...

Happy birthday Lena!!

Much Harder than it Looks...

Getting a (good) photo of yourself on NYE is much harder than you can ever expect... 
First - you have to find somebody less drunk than you. Ok, check (that part was surprisingly too easy).
Second - teach them how to use a Canon 5D Mark 3 ("I don't want to damage your $2k camera." My response? Are you kidding me? The camera is worth double that!")
Third - Allow them to take 15 photos so they can get one that is kinda in focus. 
Fourth - Begrudgingly return the beautiful film camera but watch closely where they put it away...

Happy new year everyone!

Corn Dog Grass

I was watching so many 2013 review videos from others that it made me think of my own photos from the last year. While I did minimal travel through the year, I did get the opportunity to visit Muskoka, Ontario during the Fall to capture some of the beautiful colours there. 

While I was shooting a few landscapes, I kept walking into the typha (otherwise known as cattails, reedmace, raupo, cumbungi & so many other variations). I popped on my 50mm and got in close. Surprisingly, I loved my shots of these more than the photos I stopped to take initially! It was probably the bokeh...

Fully edited with +onOne Software's wonderful software. I used a sharpening brush in Lightroom 5 for a few of the cattails so I didn't sharpen the entire image overall.

Nothing escaped the Ice in Toronto. I couldn't believe people were out driving but hey, it wasn't me. 

My own mother lost power for 36 hours and was afraid of cancelling Christmas (thankfully it wasn't). I had friends on the Danforth that didn't have it for 2 days and more in Scarborough (the small town East of Toronto that got hit the hardest) that didn't have power for almost 4 days. 

I'm glad the worst is over.

These trees looked like they were decimated, and they weren't alone. This was the look all around. I waited for the man to walk into the frame for a sense of scale...

Just down the street from me, everything was affected and looked hauntingly beautiful...

My Own Street

This branch, at the beginning of my walk during the storm, was the scariest moment for me. As I started to take the photo, I heard a HUGE crack. About 5-7 feet away from me, a branch about 1/3 the size of the one you see here, succumbed to the Ice and broke off. It hit the house on it's way down, taking some shingles, power line & eavestrough with it and landed beside me. 

I knew then my walk had to be a little quicker and safer. I was always paying attention to the trees above me because all you'd hear was the Ice cracking every few moments. You can tell it was impossible to avoid the trees altogether in this image if you look down the road...

This branch two streets down from me was another common occurrence. However, when I got to this street on Monarch Park Ave, people started gathering around (just before I took this photo). Why? It just fell. They heard a HUGE crack, as did I, and went to investigate. This was the result...

Merely a common occurrence. This was everywhere. Other drivers already attempted moving fallen trunks from their cars and to clean up the glass and damage...

This brush was in the front yard of somebody's else next to Monarch Park. This was the last pretty thing I saw before getting into the park. After, it was a disaster...

The icestorm in Toronto literally broke the trees. The sheer weight of the ice made some little guys like this just bend over. Most didn't make it. During my hour long walk, I could hear the branches in the park breaking almost every couple of minutes. Monarch Park looked like a disaster zone

The ice stuck to every little bristle. It was impossible to escape....

In Toronto about a week ago, there was a giant ice storm. I spent a few hours walking only around my neighbourhood on the Danforth. I only had a little time to explore. I mainly used my Sigma 50mm F1.4 on my Canon 5D Mark 3 for the shots for the incredible depth of field....

Oddly enough, most of these photos have already been uploaded to my pages on +Instagram (handle is vincentmcmillen) and on Facebook (same name)

Get Ready for the Lick!

You know it's going to happen... Your dog loves you & it's coming whether you want it to or not!

Over Christmas, +Laura Elliot & I went out to St. Catharines, about an hour outside of Toronto to visit her family for some presents & cognac. 

Obviously I had to bring my camera and when the snow came out, I just had to grab some portrait shots. It was SO much fun out there!

Surprise present from yesterday???

New cufflinks! Mine were stolen a few years back and haven't had the reason to buy some more as of late. 

Well even if they were purchased "as a little joke" - I LOVE them! I can always use more cameras on me at all times...

Merry Christmas!

What a great time we're having! We're about 3 deep in drinks with this mimosa we're sharing with you all. 

I left Laura & Thom's parent's house in St. Catharine's to see my Mom for Christmas. Many presents and wine!

On the left, my roomie, +Roxanne Pouliot, my girlfriend, +Laura Elliot, myself & my mom, Marlene. Oh yeah... and Radar. He just had to join the photo obviously ;-)

MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL! Now I'm going offline to enjoy some turkey and my mom's amazing lasagne. Boo ya!

Hope you're having a great time with the people you love - celebrating whatever it is you celebrate. :-)
