No matter if you are a solopreneur or part of a larger business, there is value for you with the Hangouts & HOA tools from Google… especially in the way it connects automatically with YouTube and creates videos for us on the fly. You’ve seen it in action with our #TNTBootcamp  series, now we’ll dig into the reasons why this tool has become so popular, some good and not so good uses of it and we’ll get to chat a bit about Ronnie’s brand new *Hangout Training Product* just launched at http://AllAboutHangouts.com/launch-special @108210288375340023376 has been a software trainer for many years and that shows when he does his hangout presentations. Those that are part of his *Hangout Mastery* membership can attest to the training skills and value he brings to that private community. Many of us have learned a thing or two (or more!) from him via his helpful public shows and public postings. And now for the first time, there is a structured training product he has created so we can get the best hangout training around on our own schedule. He likes to say it takes you from Hangout Basics to Total Hangout Confidence. *Watch Previous Episodes* YouTube Playlist (Season 1): http://bit.ly/1mV7BJY  YouTube Playlist (Season 2): http://bit.ly/1xLqchs Flipboard by @115091224082668507135: http://flip.it/BrEMe  #TNTBootcamp airs every 3rd Monday at 11:30am PT / 2:30pm ET Please RSVP 'YES' to be added to our invite list. #hangoutsonair #hangoutmastery #hangouts #hangoutsforbusiness   #TNTBootcamp - Ronnie Bincer2015-01-19 20:30:00182

Scotland Photowalk 2015220Here is the official Event for the 2014 Donegal Photowalk. The kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am, however,  there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Some of us will even be there already on Thursday and Friday. (A good place to find the earlybirds is probably the local bar scene).  Please note that you don't have to confirm a booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points soon.  We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option.  Cheers Athena, John & AndyDonegal Photowalk 20142014-09-27 09:00:0029

Ron Clifford2,864,274On 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".

Alan Shapiro3,533,595I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making *the best bags in the world.*) Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries.

Scotland Photowalk 2015220Here is the official Event for the 2013 UK Seaside Photowalk. The official kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am. Then again, there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure.  Please indicate whether you will be joining us, so we have a rough idea of how many people we can expect. Please note that this is not a confirmed booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points in a few weeks.  We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option.  Cheers Athena & AndyUK Seaside Photowalk2013-10-05 09:00:0071

For Greece

"Finally, acceding to the troika’s ultimatum would represent the final abandonment of any pretense of Greek independence. Don’t be taken in by claims that troika officials are just technocrats explaining to the ignorant Greeks what must be done. These supposed technocrats are in fact fantasists who have disregarded everything we know about macroeconomics, and have been wrong every step of the way."

"In précis, the vast majority (however, by no means all) of street photography making the rounds on social media and Flickr etc., is simply poor photography - it's tired, boring, repetitive, visionless digital noise. Just because you spent your last 5K on a Leica Q doesn't mean you're making photographs that are of interest to anyone, or that are going to stand the test of time - despite the number of "likes" you can garner from friends, and the village idiot."

Of course there are also some very good contemporary street photographers, but seemingly not many people who aren't street photographers themselves care about the genre.

It's also true that there's a deluge of non interesting photography across all genres, but the barrier to entry in street is so low that the problem is ten times bigger.

The August Wallpaper Is Here!

My desktop wallpaper image for the month of August is a view of the Hungarian Parliament building at night, shot from the Buda hill, across the Danube. When dusk falls on Budapest and they turn on the lights on this grandiose neo-gothic building, it makes for a great sight and a great subject for photos.

In a few hours, I will be sending out the latest issue of my photography newsletter to all members of my community, complete with links on how to download your own copy of this image.

Hell Freezes Over!

Who'd have thought? Facebook listening to its users' demands? I'm bringing my ice skates to hell tomorrow!

So, it looks like you can now mark a profile or a page as "See first" which means its posts will generally be at the top of your feed. Or something.

Anyway, may I recommend that you add my FB page to your "See first" list? I post pretty pictures, occasionally talk about photography and never ever about sports, politics, religion, or what I had for breakfast ;)

The State of Mirrorless, Ep 024 – Andrew S. Gibson

+Andrew S Gibson's interest in photography began when his parents bought him a Ricoh KR-10m camera over 20 years ago. Since that day he progressed from colour negative to slide and black and white film and finally to digital, when he bought my first digital SLR, an EOS 350D, in 2006. He used Canon EOS cameras for many years, and now his main system is the Fujifilm range, which he likes for the portability and quality.

He has taken photos in over 60 countries, studied for a degree in photography and worked as Technical Editor for EOS magazine. Now he’s a freelance writer and makes a living writing and teaching people about photography. In recent years he’s lived in the UK, China and New Zealand, which is now his home.

Got these in the mail today and did a quick test. The flash fires and since that's all they were designed to do, it's a thumbs up.

I might still do a comprehensive review later.

I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the 10TH - the YELLOW album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(ONLY ONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the YELLOW album,
1 item seen in 333 different ways.

Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the COBWEB album,
1 item seen in 258 different ways.

"Ready for an epic story? Here we go: This was a pretty easy shot to take. I just had to hike to hooker glacier lake, stay warm, and keep my tripod still in 70km winds. I was adequately prepared with alpine gear and a solid tripod, so that really wasn’t an issue. The hike was a lot easier than anticipated. I took the photo without incident, an easy blend of at least 47 different images with different focal lengths, focus points, and degrees of inebriation. Just kidding. I won’t brag about my technical prowess. This is just a vertical stitch of three horizontal shots."

For Greece

"Finally, acceding to the troika’s ultimatum would represent the final abandonment of any pretense of Greek independence. Don’t be taken in by claims that troika officials are just technocrats explaining to the ignorant Greeks what must be done. These supposed technocrats are in fact fantasists who have disregarded everything we know about macroeconomics, and have been wrong every step of the way."

Here's me again, bitching about the Rule of Thirds, that useless crutch. This time, I am sharing what +Ian Plant has to say about it and I agree 100% with it:

"So, even though you’ll find goose-stepping proponents of the Rule of Thirds everywhere you go, try not to take it too seriously. Although the Rule of Thirds might be useful for beginners, there isn't really any magic to it. In my opinion, very few scenes actually work best composed within the framework of the Rule of Thirds, and personally, I use it only rarely. So feel free to use it as a guide in those situations where it actually makes sense, but learn to recognize the many times when it won't give you the best results.

There are infinite ways to make a selection and a layer mask in Photoshop, but I am in debt with +Robin Griggs Wood for teaching me the basics of a neat technique that employs channels.

I made a short video where I apply it to an image of mine, but I can't claim to be nearly half as good as Robin.
