Gailen Mapes0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  L - 18 of 30Note: 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-18 10:26:3467218CC G+

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813411CC G+
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 13:17:2050113386127CC G+

Curating Content on Google+0The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!  A lot of new people from great participation last week!!Quick start instructions:➀ post a URL link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂ publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)➃ add this circle, and refresh it every week.You will get a comment from us with a ☑ and be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!  Questions?  Ask in comments below - you'll get help!Full story: This circle is for meeting engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens mainly in the comments, but of course re-shares too.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!This will be done every Thursday, starting fresh again.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one! Biggest Ripple last week: +Jürgen Keil with 5!  The runner up was +J.B. Churchill with 4.  Nice work to those that helped them!  The average share-chain (ripple) for the whole group was 2.52...  pretty good!!Top Influencers last week: +Sara Schiavi +Kenneth Scott +Trever McGhee and +Jürgen Keil.  Special thanks to you too! #publiccirclesproject #photography #sharedcircles #weeklythemecircles #sharingiscaring #greatp2013-03-07 15:52:124672556487CC G+

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:1450013641100CC G+

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.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.There 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.

Gailen Mapes21,973Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera L-Q - 9 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 15th.)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 #circleoftheday2013-01-09 11:42:53282739CC G+
Jeff Sullivan1,152,722Most-Followed 500 Photographers CircleWhile a circle like this has the obvious drawback of missing some excellent photographers newer to the site, Charles often follows up his Top 500 Most Followed Photographer circle with circles going all the way down to photographers with less than 5000 contacts.  Here are four circles Charles has created to help us discover and recognize photographers at all levels within the G+ community:Under 5000 -    Under 7500 -    Under 15,000 - 500 Most Followed Photographers - (here)I like to interact with people who are active in photography... share at least a photo or two of their own original work per week, so I'll slowly whittle the circle down to a stream of excellent photography (I've started, but may not finish for a few weeks).---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+Charles Lupica  Charles Lupica Dec 25, 2012 (edited)  -  Public►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers list                   circle of 500             and Group 6: 421 to 500►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄If you're not in this circle and you think you should be, I'm sorry.  I have missed a few people by pure accident.  My methods are entirely manual and I do miss people.  I have checked every profile and I have included only those people that share their own work, and share it on G+.

Some big name photographers that don't share a lot of their own work were included - sorry for the double standard. Here is the 6th and last part  of my list of the top 500 most followed photographers - Here are links to the previous parts of the list.Group 1: http://tinyurl.com/cf58vws - 1 to 100Group 2: http://tinyurl.com/bodaspk - 101 to 193Group 3: http://tinyurl.com/bsb87u4 - 194 to 250 and circleGroup 4: http://tinyurl.com/d4ulv6q  - 250 to 340Group 5: http://tinyurl.com/cjpmgy4 - 341 to 420 Group 6: 421 to 500 and circle of 500 (this post)If you are on this list, I urge you to comment, plus and share the post. I have sifted through lots of pages and circles as well as http://circlecount.com/  to try to get an accurate list. If I'm missing anyone, please let me know.  I have specifically left off a few people who only share links to their content housed elsewhere,  people who share a lot of other people's work without sharing their own, or people that appear to be inactive. The rank numbers are off by 1 because I included the same person twice in an earlier list.#Top500CircleDec   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  420 +Jennifer Luzio 21797421 +Matt Suess 21794422 +2013-01-07 15:33:25500221451CC G+

Thomas Hawk4,072,391Congratulations to the first 100 contributors to the Light Box.  All 108 of these photographers have had images voted into the Light Box.   The Light Box is a fun new dynamic photography community on Google+ http://goo.gl/jisrZ  where photographers submit their photos for voting/critique by their peers.  10 saves and the photo is voted into the Light Box.  10 deletes and the photo is rejected.  Check it out if you have some time (remember to vote on 15 photos before submitting your own).  These 108 photographers are talented, active community members who you might like to get to know. Check out the great work they've had voted in so far here:  http://goo.gl/c45MQI'll share this circle again when we get to 200.  :)2012-12-10 18:36:14108241470CC G+

Right about now everyone is going to start looking back at 2013, I just realized that I only posted about 40 images to G+ on 2013, down from about 250+ in 2012. So sorry everyone, I think it was a case of social-burnout.

Here is to hoping for a more photo-productive 2014.

Where the rubber met the road
San Francisco, CA. 2013.

I'm a liberal, I say I support organized labor, their right to do collective bargaining, to strike, etc.

Last week a strike against Unity Health started across my house at St. Mary's Hospital. The strikers are using noise tactics to get noticed (whistles, horns, sirens), and it went on for about 24 hours (even through the night).

I was fairly tired of the noise, and the nuisance -- but then I remembered that my inconvenience is the least I could do to support union labor in America. --

Good luck Local 39.

Perspective'
Sequoia National Park, CA. 2013.

Its easy to loose perspective, spend too much time doing one thing, and you'll forget why the other things are so important. I guess the moments when you carefully give each part of your life its due, its called balance.

Like a lot of you I spend most of my time at work, or thinking about work. Then I get to spend some time with family and friends, and I'm reminded of what I really appreciate.

How Google+ can transform your career.

Google+ can make you better at whatever you do for a living, if you do it right. 

I’m going to tell you exactly how to get started with a method of engagement that works well only on Google+, and will tap you directly into every conversation on Google+ related to your business (or interests).

Fasten your seatbelt, because you're about to become a knowledgeable and influential expert using a simple Google+ technique I call "Persistent Engagement":

American Heroes
San Francisco, CA. 2012.

This was going to be a really long post about who I think are today's american heroes. -- I had a really long post about my own path as an immigrant in this country.  But maybe thats just going to have to wait for another time.

I'll just say that today, I have a lot more hope that I did years ago.  Marriage equality has really turned the corner recently, and even if immigration reform does not happen now, the changing demographics gives me hope that its now a matter of time before it does.

About this photo: Shot at the Fleishacker Pool in San Francisco before its recent demise, I was captivated by the scene. Heavy processing with photoshop, lightroom and On-One perfect effects.
