David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223CC G+

Martin Bailey37,482It's been a while since I shared my Photography circle, so here goes.This circle is the result of a year on Google+ interacting with many, many amazing photographers. It isn't a comprehensive list of the best photogs on G+, and it doesn't contain everyone that I interact with or follow. I have a few other circles for people that share good info but don't interact, and I have some lists of friends that haven't taken the time to upload enough photos to make their profile look pretty. I'll shift them over when their profiles look good. Superficial? Yes, but I like things to look pretty.This isn't a list that I'll add people to on request. If our paths cross and you share good content, I'll add you in due course. If you think you should be in here but aren't, I'm sorry. Let's stay friends and you'll be in their someday if you continue to share original and interesting photography related information.There are also a number of people that write in Japanese in here. If you don't like posts in languages you don't understand, weed those plussers out later, but they are in the list primarily because they're great photographers, so hopefully you'll keep them circled.Enjoy...2012-07-18 12:47:18438501350CC G+

Peter From35,122The Black & White Circle –– Revised Version #CircleSharingForThePeopleBW2 It's time to reshare my validated and revised Black & White Circle (BWC) with 465 excellent photographers that produce great monochrome images. You don't want to miss that one. I am proud to promote these great people and I am sure they will bring lots and lots of great black & white images to your feeds.If YOU want to hop on the B&W train, do the following:1. Help spread the word and reshare this circle post. Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow photographers. Simple as that.2. Ask for inclusion in the comments. I will check every feed.3. Make sure that you share your own original B&W photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The BWC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great monochrome imagery to their feeds. If you only shoot in color or don't have an B&W album, don't ask for inclusion.NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the BWC. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleBW2 so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-05-14 08:51:42465909793CC G+
Trever McGhee7,731There's someone for everyone to follow in this circle, +Charles Lupica +Margaret Tompkins +Manuel Votta spent three days going through 537 recommendation of photographers to find the best people 365..one for every day of the year.Your best bet is to add the circle follow the stream for a couple of day's and then keep the ones that put a smile on your face, the ones that work for you, then return the rest to stream for another time.That's the greatest thing about Google.. it's for ever changing for the better and so are the amazing people on here.It's quite extraordinary to see some peoples posts today compared to when they first joined._______________________________________________________+Charles Lupica originally shared this post:▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ Hidden Treasure: 360 talented photographers to discover    a fully validated circle of photographers         15'000 followers or fewer▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄360 photographers plus myself and a couple of relevant pages.Validation processThis circle has been validated to the max. If you're in this circle you met all of the requirements and showed a nice selction of images in your stream. I personally checked more than 520 profiles to bring you this circle of hand-picked photographers that deserve more attention. I also had the help of +Margaret Tompkins in assembling the temporary circle for validation and +Manuel Votta for helping me to verify some of the requirements. The main reasons for exclusion:• The circle announcement wasn't shared.• I saw an animated gif. (BTW, I saw one in Trey Ratclif's stream so I had to drop him :D )• insufficient images or trash in the stream.• not enough images to judge or time wasters.• thumbnails trying to drive traffic to another website or blogFor anyone sharing this circle, I recommend that you add a few fresh images to your stream to keep your content balanced.As lastly, let me mention +Peter From and our cooperation on the 15'000 and 7500 followers circle. I think that Peter will do an update of the Upcoming Stars with less than 7500 followers in a week or two. In the meantime here's a link to the previous one which contains an overlapping set of people.: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/2qsSfQ9iibtAlso, Peter will share the European Photographers circles tomorrow at noon CET. #circleshare #circlesharing #sharedcircles #cwlupica ◊◊◊2012-05-03 22:20:033657017CC G+

HQSP NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER CIRCLE 6.0

NEW AND VERY STRICT RULES.
If you appreciate my efforts you have to plus, comment and share this message/circle and also add +Rinus Bakker to your circles.
WHY? you can read at the end of this message, see NOTE 2.

WHO IS IN this new cleaned and updated +High Quality Nature Photographer Circle v. 6.0 ?:
HQSP TEAM & PAGES, A FEW FRIENDS AND ALMOST 400 VERIFIED PROFILES of GREAT NATURE PHOTOGRAHERS.

Do you want to be in?
How? you can read at the end of this message, see NOTE 1.

Who are not in
-People who were not nominated
-People who did not circle me back
-People who could not be added due to google
-People who did not fulfill all the requirements even though many of them are great photographers.

Why add this circle to your circles:
To fill your stream with great stuff, because this are all people with excellent photographers!

Why share this circle public?
-Others will become to know you and us and enjoy our work.
-You will get more followers which means more attention for your shares
-You will get more followers which means more friends
-You give a huge support to the HQSP project
-You will be a great encouragement for the team who does all the hard work.

What happens if you do not add and/or share?
Absolutely nothing. No more followers,no more friends, no support for the project, no encouragement for the team.

I count on YOU, as allways!
Thank you very much and I am sure you will enjoy the circle!

NOTE 1:
If you want to be in next time make sure the requirements are fulfilled:
-You are a decent and kind person and do not post HQSP unworthy stuff.
-You post 50% are above good quality nature photos
-More than half of them is your own work 
-You plus, comment and share this post
That's all

NOTE 2:
Why new and strict rules?
It is a side effect of my recent success, I am still happy to be at your service, but if circle posts become at my own disadvantage I do not want  them in my stream anymore. So for all my huge efforts you have to return a relative small effort.
Also even great photographers have been removed from the circle because they did not circle me back. To stay under the google limit of 5000 people I do automatic uncircle people who did not circle me. I am sorry about that but I have no longer time to do this manually .

This was the view from my tent on a rest day during the Annapurna part of our  trek.  We could hear monks chanting for much of the day at this spot making the experience almost surreal.

"Nothing Left To Fear" - I spotted this gentleman in a small village near Gurkha while hiking in Nepal in 2011.  He consented to have me take his picture.  It is now one of my favorite portraits.

I captured this yesterday at the Raptor Center near Sitka, Alaska.  The injuries this Bald Eagle suffered will unfortunately prevent it from ever being released.  There are numerous other uncaged eagles in the area feeding on several species of salmon.

B-17G "Nine-o-Nine" at night - Sept, 2010. This aircraft travels around the US as part of the Collings Foundation fleet of historic warbirds. The moon was providing some backlight for the clouds in the background as well.

Friend and fellow photographer, Skip Foisy and I worked together to perform the lightpainting technique required to produce this image and a number of others that night.

Honored to be included in this circle!

▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄

 Hidden Treasure: 360 talented photographers to discover
    a fully validated circle of photographers
        15'000 followers or fewer
▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄

360 photographers plus myself and a couple of relevant pages.

Validation process
This circle has been validated to the max. If you're in this circle you met all of the requirements and showed a nice selction of images in your stream. I personally checked more than 520 profiles to bring you this circle of hand-picked photographers that deserve more attention. I also had the help of +Margaret Tompkins in assembling the temporary circle for validation and +Manuel Votta for helping me to verify some of the requirements.

The main reasons for exclusion:
• The circle announcement wasn't shared.
• I saw an animated gif. (BTW, I saw one in Trey Ratclif's stream so I had to drop him :D )
• insufficient images or trash in the stream.
• not enough images to judge or time wasters.
• thumbnails trying to drive traffic to another website or blog

For anyone sharing this circle, I recommend that you add a few fresh images to your stream to keep your content balanced.

From my visit to Scotland in 2010. I had the entire place to myself and after this shot, I climbed the circular staircase five stories to the ramparts of this beautiful ruin. It was a tight squeeze even with the tripod collapsed and I worried about banging my camera against the walls.

+Charles Lupica and +Peter From have done a service for the G+ community by creating these lists that help lesser-known photographers achieve a larger following...

There seems to be renewed interest in my Circle of "Great Photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers". So, in cooperation with +Peter From, I'm in the process of putting together a new circle from the ground up. It doesn't matter if you're into nature, portrait, street, or any other type of photography, as long as your stream contains good quality original work. Everyone with 15'000 followers or fewer is welcome to ask for inclusion.

Rules:
• no animated gifs
• profile that supports the idea of being a photographer
• profile picture and preferably, a set of banner images
• Inclusion by request. If you do not request to be included you won't be in the circle.
• If you suggest someone, they must follow up and request inclusion.
• Any one requesting inclusion is asked to kindly share this post. If you don't wish to share do not ask to be included.
• People who don't share may be excluded from future circles.
• I trim my circles frequently. If you want to guarantee inclusion you need to add me and +Peter From to your circles, if we're not already in them.

If you're a photographer and want to be a part of the new circle, let me know in the comments. I ask you kindly to reshare this post so that I can promote as many talented photographers as possible when it'll be time to share this circle with the rest of the world.

Depending on how fast this circle fills up, I intend to share it toward the end of next week.◊___+Charles Lupica and +Peter From have done a service for the G+ community by creating these lists that help lesser-known photographers achieve a larger following...

This afternoon I was returning to the house from the back field when this barred owl swooped low right in front of my truck! I watched where he (she?) landed and got back to the house and put my 200-400 on the D7000 (rather than the full-frame D3x) to get the longer effective focal length. I didn't really expect the owl to still be there, but I was fortunate. He seemed to sense I meant him no harm as he was content to simply watch me watch him. What a fun experience!

Mountain Photographer Circle - Update 3!

My idea is to create a circle for people who love to take photos of mountains, mountain landscapes and sceneries.
I'd like to see some nice green hills, steep rocks, cliffs, big walls and of course the top peaks.
Simply comment on this post and tell me your suggestions ... and please share this post so that other great mountain photographers can find us !

I will add you if you post some great mountain landscapes from time to time but I will not add you if you have too much animated gifs or exclusively shared posts.

I'm looking forward to visit your profiles and see a lot of great work !

Here are the new members of the last week:
+Alan Kirby +Ben Smith +Benjamin Chase +Charles Lupica +Daniel Plumer +Ed Bannister +Jeremy Cram +John G Moore +markus rienzner +Michael Cohn +Michael R. Reynolds +Mike Criss +Christian Ortiz +Tomasz Szulczewski +Pranab Banerjee +donald jensen +Carl Donohue +Brandon Broderick +Allan Colton

This technology demonstration shows the ability of a 'camera' to see around corners! http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/camera-sees-around-corners-0321.html I previously posted a link describing the very clever techniques that enable this. By using femto-second laser pulses, a streak camera, and some clever software to reconstruct the scene, they can also create a 'slow motion' video or light propagating as well.

I created a documentary / travel video of our trip to Nepal in the Fall of 2011. This is a draft as it has some really rough edges. The video is here: http://vimeo.com/34953430

If you decide to watch, it is a bit less than 30 minutes in length and is best viewed in full screen mode. Vimeo will only show 780p which is OK, but not as good as the 1080p version. Sit back with a glass of wine or beer and mellow-out. For any real videographers out there, I'm looking for critique as this is the first video I've done.
