Curating Content on Google+6,577The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!    [Jun 27, 2013]The Photo of the Week Contest that complements this photo share is here >> http://goo.gl/FgqD8Quick 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  +1 this post to say "thanks", and add this circle  (replace it every week)The Circle rules are:  you get 1 'point' for each step above.  Points accumulate and keep the top engagers in the circle.Full story:  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 (with name).  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!Participation here qualifies you to enter the Photo of the Week Contest.  Last week's winner was +Markus Landsmann - see his photo here > http://goo.gl/MISIBThe Biggest Ripple Award goes to  >>> +Piedmont OuttaBounds <<<  with a chain of 8 shares!  Thanks to those that helped: +Britta Rogge, +Sandra Deichmann, +Chris Johnson, +Heiko Köster, +Dawn Siadatan, and +COOL PIXX!See the Hall of Fame Album http://goo.gl/ldooJ for past history! #publicsharedcircles #photography #weeklythemecircles #topcircles #greatphotography #activeusers #photos 2013-06-27 17:46:23345329161238CC G+

Jim Warthman15,004Today I passed 15,000 followers! Thank you all very much for your kind appreciation and interest in my work! I am honored that 15,000 people enjoy my photography and have chosen to add me to their circles. I especially appreciate those of you who take the time to read my posts and comment on my work. I am truly humbled by this, and hope I can continue to share content that you’ll find interesting and worthy of being included in your circles.And special thanks to +Margaret Tompkins! I connected with Margaret soon after joining G+ and she has been mentoring me ever since. I credit my own G+ presence largely to Margaret’s wonderful influence!To commemorate this milestone, I’m sharing this Thank You Circle. Unfortunately, I can’t include all 15,000 of you in a circle - but I’ve selected those who’ve helped me on my G+ journey. This circle has some wonderful people who are highly engaging, interactive, thoughtful, and share outstanding content in their own streams.Last but not least, I’d love for you to introduce yourself in the comments below.Thank you all very much and, as always, Share and Enjoy! #Circleshare  #SharedCircles2013-06-18 14:34:0841343627CC G+

Gailen Mapes30,402Hand 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 May 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Msy 1st.)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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles#sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles#pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle#thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-05-23 10:43:32306726CC G+

Traffic Jam
I think I've shared this in the past, but this is one of the reasons I don't like large photo walks.  I can see going on a photo walk with a few people, but when you get too many photographers together, this is what you get (see photo).   This is the famous Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona.  I went last year while in the Grand Canyon area and I wanted to go see what the fuss was all about, regarding this place.  It's on the Navajo reservation.  They organize paid groups to go see it for a VERY short time.  Unless you pay big money for the less crowded tour, this is what you get.  It's still possible to get some nice shots though.  You have to focus on more tight shots and shots above people's heads because there's almost always someone in your way and the tour is very short.   I was with a few people from France, Belgium and some other Americans.

Why I love all photographers, whatever you use. Cheers!

Warning, this is a rant! Why is there so much snobbery in photography? Rarely a day goes by that I don't read or hear someone saying 'you're not doing it properly', 'you need to use the viewfinder, not the screen', 'why aren't you shooting in RAW?', 'look at that fool taking photos with an iPad', 'stop chimping at your photos', or 'if you're shooting in auto you shouldn't have such a good camera'. Absolute nonsense, the lot of it.

You know what I think when I see someone taking photos with an iPad or, God-forbid, using the screen rather than the viewfinder on a DSLR? I think 'good on you', another person partaking in our wonderful hobby. Another person buying gear with money that will be invested back into our industry to develop better or more... more »

Absence makes the heart grow fonder?
No, it doesn't.  At least not in the case of G+.  I'm actually glad that I'm 'mostly' gone.  It was nice in the beginning, but over time (as far as the photography crowd goes), it became a community based on cliques, people that basically demanded circle adds and plus 1 clicks before you'll get any of that in return (even if they happen to actually like your images, no click for you! ;-)) and everyone suddenly is an aspiring pro.  Why can't photography just be fun and relaxing?...(for those of us who have regular jobs and no intent on being the next big-shot and dare I say it, attention whores).  

Oh well.  As they say, it is what it is.  ;-)

I've been trying to get out (even if it's just outside around my house) to shoot more with the X-T1.  As soon as I actually go on a short trip somewhere, I'll have more variety.

I really don't do well in situations like this...
I tried for a moment, but I gave up trying to get into that mess of people to take a photo of the model at the Westcott booth.  I don't know, but I just feel weird getting into a group like that fighting for a photo.  I really hate situations like that, so I just walked away.  I'd rather snap a photo of the crowd fighting for their shot instead ;-)

Winter's Grip
Unrelated to the photo, but there seem to be more people at the #photoproexpo2014  this year.  If it keeps growing they'll need to move it or take more space in the convention center, if there's any left.  I'd prefer it stay where it is because I love the location.

If I had a nickel for every photo I saw tagged with....
I'd be rich if I had a nickel for every photo I saw tagged with a certain popular photo preset (I won't name names, but it's 4 letters and starts with VS and ends with O ;-).   Don't get me wrong...I use some lesser known (free) presets now and then, but they're just a starting point for me, not a one-click and I'm done sort of editing process.  (I generally only like to spend a couple minutes editing a photo, so I'm not talking about spending lots of time doing it 'manually')  I could see those presets being a great starting point because I like some of the images I've seen from those presets I'm writing about, but I see too many images posted here and other photo sharing places that look very similar, as if people are using it like an Instagram filter or preset.  One click andyou... more »

Holding on...
A very determined apple still clings to the tree in mid January.  And it still actually looks to be in pretty good shape, considering.

We've all seen the brick wall photos before...
...but I'm particularly fond of this wall :-)   And those are natural light shadows, not added vignette.

Delaying the inevitable
Oak leaves spared from rotting on the winter ground for just a little bit longer...

Oh how I love those rich files with 'soul' from the Fuji X100S.   Beautiful.

Traffic Jam
I think I've shared this in the past, but this is one of the reasons I don't like large photo walks.  I can see going on a photo walk with a few people, but when you get too many photographers together, this is what you get (see photo).   This is the famous Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona.  I went last year while in the Grand Canyon area and I wanted to go see what the fuss was all about, regarding this place.  It's on the Navajo reservation.  They organize paid groups to go see it for a VERY short time.  Unless you pay big money for the less crowded tour, this is what you get.  It's still possible to get some nice shots though.  You have to focus on more tight shots and shots above people's heads because there's almost always someone in your way and the tour is very short.   I was with a few people from France, Belgium and some other Americans.

Bad photography habits I learned from camera gear discussion forums

1.  Underexposing photos due to an obsession with never 'blowing out the highlights'.
2.  Motion blur or camera shake blur from slow shutter speeds due to an obsession with not having too much high ISO noise in the image.

Regarding Number 1:
Now that I know better, what casual observer of your photographs (non-photography geeks) ever said to you "Wow, this would be a great shot, were it not for the area at the top right of the image where you blew out the highlights in the clouds."   No real people ever say something silly like that.  Only people on gear discussion forums obsessed with technical perfection say that.  Those are the people that don't always care about the art of photography.  They're mainly focused on the technicalities of it.  Lessonlearne... more »
