Ron Clifford2,982,847On the show +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn   will share how she got started in astrophotography, explain her fabulous setup and show a few of her favourite deep sky images, (you don't want to miss this!). Afterwards, Kerry-Ann get into an example of her workflow for processing a deep sky astro image from pre processing (image stacking) to final post processing in Photoshop...... I have got to see this. "After getting my first telescope at the age of 11 and then my first film camera as a teenager I was hooked on the concept of taking pictures of deep space. Ever since then I have strived to improve my skills in astrophotography and in the process have produced images that have won awards, been featured in calendars, magazines, books and online publications such as Sky News POW and NASA APOD. While enjoying this hobby, I have a full time career as a meteorologist and  I love life with my husband and two girls".

Michael Bonocore436,747_* SmugMug Is Looking For Your Cover Photos*_ Cover photos are bigger and better on Google+ now (http://bit.ly/WUbLtN), and, since I am in charge of updating our Google+ content I thought, hey, with all that space, why not feature YOUR photos in that prime real estate? Today, we are opening the door for your submissions. Each month, a panel of judges will pick one amazing photographer to feature on the @118357019708110162087 page to greet visitors. The winner will also be a judge in the next month's selection. You'll also receive a @118357019708110162087 hoodie and swag care package. To help get this party started, we have changed our cover photo to @112957708071337353347's amazing image, _"The Future Is Now"_, taken in Dubai, UAE. Elia is also our special guest judge for the first month of this cover photo hunt, and he can't wait to see the great images that we are confident you will submit! So, enough talking…how do you enter? *Sign up for the _SmugMug Cover Photo Submissions For April_ event. *Click the "Add Photos" Button in the event, and upload your submission. The new cover photos can be up to 2120px by 1192px, so please submit a photo with this minimum size requirement. Photos will be displayed in a 16:9 Aspect Ratio, so please make sure submissions as close to 16:9 as possible, so we don't lose any of the valuable image *One Photo per person *Take a look at all of the entries, and feel free to +1 and comment on the photos that you are drawn too.

More about this photo from @112957708071337353347 travel photography blog at www.blamethemokey.com  _"The Meydan Bridge is a VIP entrance to the Meydan Racecourse, a mega structure in Dubai that is able to accommodate over 60,000 spectators in a 1 mile long grandstand. It was a strange feeling actually – to be standing on this opulent mega structure in the middle of the desert, miles away from the city, and with nobody around. Half the lights were dead too. I guess after Tom Cruise was finished driving over it in Mission Impossible 3, they really didn’t have a need to maintain it anymore. :)"_ Nikon D700  14-24mm  f/5.6  ISO 200SmugMug Cover Photo Submissions For April2013-03-08 00:00:00276

Meilani MacDonald14,746Photographers @104355888553035365377 and @118390125072182346579 have built a thriving business for their StuStuStudio. Their activity on social media sites, including Google+. has played a big role in the growth of the studio over the past couple of years.  Mike and Nicole will be joining us to share their success story and tell us how they used social media to promote their business.   Many photographers who are getting into social media have questions about whether they should share their photos over social media sites.  Is the risk of people using their photos without purchasing them worth the wide audience potential?  Does it devalue their beautiful work? These are some of the topics that will be discussed as Mike and Nicole take us along on their journey to success! The TGIF Business Networking Hangout is for small business owners and entrepreneurs who want to network, give themselves a little promo time on air, share questions and advice, and learn from their peers.  Won't you join us? *Where to Find Past Episodes*  There is a past episode in this event listing, you can find all past episodes at: http://www.youtube.com/user/MeiWorksConsulting/videos *How To Join This Hangout on Air* You MUST send me a request if you would like to be invited into the peanut gallery!

Trever McGhee96,070Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

A very cool opportunity to grow your Photography:
+Lauri Novak knows her stuff and loves helping people :)

Another Mentorship is on the way!!
How Do You See? 2nd time around!

Over the last 4 or so years I have been a member of several of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers programs both as a mentee and also as a helper/cheerleader. These programs are one of the reasons I’ve grown so much as a photographer and also met so many amazing people who I call friends.

It’s my turn to Pay It Forward! I will be leading my very own mentorship program based around one of the questions I have been asked the most over my photographic life; “How did you see that?”

Intrigued?

The sign ups will begin Friday, August 12th around 7:00am CST and end Tuesday, August 17th at 9:00pm CST right here on my profile and will explain a little more about what the program will be about!

50th Annual Lewiston Artfest
So thanks to all this picture taking and posting on Google+, I'm going to be selling prints at my first big Art Show!
http://www.artcouncil.org/
I ordered a couple of 30"x20" prints on Fuji Supergloss, this one titled "Tomorrow's Whisper" is probably my favorite shot of all time.
If you are close to Lewiston, NY this weekend (August 13th & 14th) stop by and say hi!

"As the Future Waits"
Millennium Monument located in Wrigley Square - Chigago, IL
I was in the amazing city of Chicago for the first time last Thursday & Friday. My niece was getting married so I flew in and right away started making the best of my time there.
BIG thanks to +Lauri Novak who offered to deliver me a battery for my Canon 6D after I landed in Chicago realizing both of my 2 batteries I had brought were dead... (Never trust a fast blink on the charger) Luckily I started charging one of my batteries right away and really didn't miss much camera time.
It was a good thing I brought my camera because besides all the awesome city shots I got - they needed me to shoot the beginning of the ceremony when the hired Photographer (very cool guy BTW) got stuck in traffic!

Also thanks to +Tom Tran who gave me some tips on where to shoot!

Wow +Rick Wayne!
h/t +Leo Deegan 

Advice for +Lindsey Clements on her first day in Japan

With your schedule, I would suggest getting cash before you leave. It's not that it's difficult to get (at all), but you're going to feel a little lost when you get there, and a lot jet-lagged, and if you have money, it's one less thing to worry about. Let me explain.

Japan is still very cash-based and unfortunately largely on their own separate financial system. Unless you get a local bank account, you won't be able to just walk into any old convenience store and get cash. You can at any post office -- they pretty much all have ATMs -- but those are not always open.

Airport exchange companies really kind of rob you, whereas the ATMs give a decent exchange rate. It isn't the BEST, but it's fair and super-convenient. I always return yen-less and just grab some when I get there and put cash on my train card.

If you want to do that, then when you come out of customs, go left. You have to go that way anyway because the trains are left and down on the bottom floor. Find one of the 7/11 ATMs. (There are a couple.) Any 7/11 in the country will have a machine that both works in English and can access the Western financial network. Most banks have a daily withdrawal limit. You should probably know what yours is because if you request too much, it doesn't tell you the problem. It just doesn't give you cash and you're left scratching your head, thinking your card just doesn't work and oh my God what am I going to do without money?? Until finally some nice person you don't know asks if you've tried withdrawing less and it turns out everything is okay. I speak from experience.

Also, most machines only let you pull out certain denominations, and there's an exchange rate in there, so to be safe, you should shoot for the nearest round 10,000 yen under your daily limit. I pull out 30,000 yen at a time, which converts to just under $300 and lasts me a long time. (But then, I'm poor, so it has to!)

7/11s are everywhere -- they're the most numerous convenience stores in the country -- and they're open 24 hours a day, so you really don't need to keep a lot of cash on you.

However, the train will run you about 1,800 yen per person, and you will want to catch the 1:39 Limited Express to Haneda on the Keisei Line if at all possible. It takes two hours, as I said, but you don't have to change trains, and the Haneda Domestic Terminal is the last stop. And don't worry. All the signs along the tracks show the station name in English as well as Japanese. And at many stations, the English text is actually larger and more prominent.

If you get the 1:39, that puts you in at 3:37. If you miss the 1:39, there's a 2:19 that puts you in at 4:17. It will take you 10 minutes or so -- depending on kids and luggage, I imagine -- to exit the station and get up a couple floors to the departures terminal.

The good news is that Japanese customer service is exceptional -- they don't understand why it's so bad here and why we tolerate long lines and grouchy reps -- and they are not nearly as worried about domestic terrorism as we are, so security is lighter and faster. You still have to take your laptop out, but you can leave your shoes on, and you can even take a water bottle in, although they'll ask you to remove it and they'll put it in this scanner thing to make sure it's okay.

Point being: you should have plenty of time to catch your connecting flight, even if you miss the first train. Just don't stop and have a leisurely lunch!

So, to summarize: Exit customs at Narita. Go left and down. Look for the Keisei Line. It will be the one with all the red signs. The Japan Rail (simply called JR) is different and will have green signs. If you already have cash, then you can go right to figuring out the train ticket kiosk. Like most things, it's super-easy once you know what you're doing, but I remember well trying to figure it out my first couple trips. There's a button at the top of the touch screen for instructions in Engrish. You'll want to press that. Get the 1:39 if at all possible, just so you have leeway, and then just sit and relax and enjoy a two-hour train ride through the Chiba countryside, and then the Tokyo underground subway system. You don't have to change trains, but there will be lots of stops. On a Saturday, though, it honestly shouldn't be that busy.

When you get to Kamata, you're in my 'hood. The train is elevated there, so you can see the outskirts of the endless city. In fact, taken together, the Tokyo-Yokohama metroplex is the largest city in the world, and at Kamata you're right in the middle.

The train will bank left as soon as it leaves the station. That's the Haneda airport run. When you pass Otorii station, you're a couple hundred meters from Orine's apartment. I can give you her contact information if you want. I just checked her schedule and she's off that day, so worst case, if you get lost or whatever, she should be around. Even more lucky, she might even be awake! (Because of her schedule, she routinely sleeps to noon or 1:00 on her first day off.)

And after all that, I hope to see you guys this fall.___Wow +Rick Wayne!

A favorite G+ memory of mine was when a fellow #bokehaulic  and head of Google+ at the time +Dave Besbris name dropped me as someone that makes this place special. I was floored and honored :)
I have found a part of myself here via photography and cannot express the fulfillment that brings.
Here's to being a part of one of the best online communities out there!
#Gplus5

This is a picture of some of the people who built Google+, but they are not the ones who make it. Those of you reading this do. And I want to thank you all for spending time with us and making this place your own. We've got a lot of exciting things planned for the future and it's been a blast hanging out with you for the last three years.  

Whether you’re into star gazing, boy bands, or football: you’ve all made Google+ an amazing place to explore the things you love, with the people who love them too. To celebrate our community, create a post and tell us: who are your people on Plus?

Here are mine:

+Michael B. Stuart, +Robin Griggs Wood, and +Wesly Smith. These are some of my many people on Plus.

Three years ago today we started the Google+ project. Back then I took the occasional smartphone photo, but that was about it. It was folks like Michael, Robin and Wesly who inspired me to be creative with my pictures. And because of their encouraging +1s, tips, and inspirational #bokehlicious  pictures, photography has gone from just a casual interest to my new favorite pastime. I've even been introduced as "that guy who takes pretty pictures of flowers!"

What a great post! Hope to meet you all someday :)
Congrats G+
Great to know you +Leo Deegan!

Now and then - When I think back over the years of being on G+--the late-night chats, the hangouts, the weekly photo themes, the running into people you wonder why you haven't known your whole life--the one constant that sticks in my mind are the HIRLs. As a photo hobbyist, that invariably means photowalks. Whether it was just the other day in Albany Bulb or, in this shot over 3 years ago in Sutro Baths, the social capturing of the moment has been a recurring magical moment for me.

Here's to another birthday on G+ and cheers to you all that make G+ what it is #Gplus5  

(Bonus points if you can spot +Swee Oh)___What a great post! Hope to meet you all someday :)

Tranquil dawn at Bow Lake
From my blog: http://www.niophoto.com/tranquil-dawn-bow-lake-banff-canada/

And suddenly it was almost one and a half year ago since I last posted! Oops! I guess life in general kept me too busy ... or maybe I just needed an extended break to get back some focus :)

One of the things that kept me busy in the past two years was travelling (and shooting) the world. I visited places like Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Ireland, France, Spain and Italy and I am hoping to travel even more in the years to come!

Here is an image that I captured during a trip to the beautiful Canadian Rockies at the end of the summer of 2014, where I had the great pleasure to meet up with +George Marquardt and +Olivier Du Tré. 

The image is a 2-minute long exposure landscape shot just before sunrise at Bow Lake. Bow Lake is a small lake in Banff National Park in western Alberta, Canada. It is located on the Bow River, in the Canadian Rockies, at an altitude of 1920 m.

Although there were some nice sunrise colors in the sky and water, I felt the image worked best in black & white. Hope you like it!?

Cheers,
Johan
