Stephan Spelde8,664My Inspirational CircleEver since I joined Google plus in the end of the year 2011 I have been looking for those special ones. Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930CC 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+

With hundreds of small stupas in a various stages of ruin, the Indein Pagoda complex is an amazing and haunting site. I hiked to a nearby hill so that I could use a telephoto to compress the perspective, which conveys the density of the stupas. More on the blog: bit.ly/1nds3Gx

Intha Fishermen are known for their technique of rowing wrapping one of the legs around the oar to relieve and free arms for fishing. Photographing from a stable position instead of a boat let us create rare dusk images with lanterns. More on the blog: bit.ly/1nds3Gx

Despite the great beauty of Lake Inle, what makes it special is that it is home to a unique culture, symbolized here by this shrine set in the middle of the lake.

This image was made with the same group of four Intha fishermen of Lake Inle, Myanmar as the previous posted image. However, I've tried to make it look more "natural", with less alignment and more action. Which one do you prefer ?

Capturing the complex, three-dimensional space inside the Pindaya cave with a 360 degree view was challenging. In that low light, a tripod was absolutely necessary, but then you have to digitally remove it from the pano so that you see the ground ! http://bit.ly/1gNZkCA

To capture the complex, three-dimensional space inside the Pindaya cave, I created a 360 degree view, of which this image is a crop. The flattened perspective is a bit strange, but you can also see a normal, interactive view at bit.ly/1rpzSwg

Inside the Pindaya caves, over 8,000 Buddha statues have been placed by pilgrims over the centuries, filling up every imaginable space inside to create an incredible labyrinth. I used the widest lens I had, but this wasn't quite enough...

More than half of all Buddhist monks in Myammar reside in the Mandalay area. We had several opportunities to witness monks going for their round of alms. Contrarily to widespread thinking, this is not begging, but an opportunity provided to the devotees to earn merit by giving. To that effect, the monks walk a long way from their monasteries, often barefoot.

Compared to sunset, sunrise added a low layer of fog, floating well below Mandalay Hill. The image looked just grey but by just moving black point and white points contrast raised to reveal details.

After sunset, we had the privilege of attending the evening prayer at one of the numerous monasteries that dot the Mandalay Hill. Out of respect I did not want to use flash. Instead of trying to make a somewhat sharp picture, I opted to capture motion. Images with motion work best when there are elements which remain sharp enough, so the challenge was to wait for a key moment when some monks would be in motion, and others not. This happened at the end of the prayer, so the window was very short. 1s ISO 1600 f4 did I say it was dark ?

"Looking into Yosemite" for #PlusOneCollectionIII

 I came to the location for a landscape shot, but since it was so hazy, I asked my friend Tom to move over to the brink to make this image instead. The silhouette may be small, but it makes the picture.

At this time, I mostly photographed landscapes, but since then I've become interested in how we are part of our world. I started more conceptual series about the National Park, of which this image was a precursor.

Sutaungpyei Pagoda on top of Mandalay Hill at dawn was a much more serene experience than sunset. As often there is a short window after it is too dark and before the lights are turned off there.

I anticipated the path of those young Buddhist monks as they walked holding red sun umbrellas and waited for them to be positioned between the two temples. Kneeling low let me detach the umbrella against the blue sky.

Young monks with candles worship Shin Bin Thal Yaung reclining Budddha. Bagan, Myanmar. Because of the tight space, I used 16-35@16mm, resulting in the leftmost novice head becoming oblong. I made a correction with DxO Optics Pro's Volume Anamorphosis to restore spherical shape.

We generally had great access to Buddhist monks in Myanmar (here inside an ancient Bagan temple) because our local tour guide was a three-time monastery drop-out. The importance of local guides should never be underestimated in photo tours !

On a hot air balloon, not only you fly silently and smoothly, but also at low altitude, sometimes not far from touching the top of the temples in Bagan. To prevent motion blur, I used a shutter speed of 1/640s, which necessitated ISO 1600 at f/4 in the soft early morning light (great for revealing textures).

Yangon River pier with seagulls fed by visitors. That's one situation where I shot a lot to catch birds in a pleasant configuration. I photographed at ISO 400 so that shutter speed would be above 1/250 to avoid too much blur for them.

Besides the glittering pagodas, there is much life to explore around in Yangon. As in other Asian cities, people are up early for exercise, here at dawn on the shores of Kandawgyi Lake, with a replica of the Royal Barge in the background.

I cannot think of a better location to capture the essence of Yangon: you see Independence Monument, City Hall, 2,500 years old Sule Pagoda, Bengali Sunni Jamae Central Mosque, Emmanuel Baptist Church. Time window is less than 10 min (before it's too dark, after, lights are off), and I had to tip a security guard to access private building. 24TSE wasn't wide enough, so I used 16-35 and corrected perspective in PS.

The full moon sets over the Shwedagon Pagoda, photographed from the shore of Kandawgyi Lake in Yangon. I used ISO 1600 to keep exposure short enough (1/2 s) to avoid excessive blurring in the moon (which moves fast at 250mm). Single exposure.

The highlight of a Yangon visit is the Shwedagon Pagoda, possibly the oldest, largest, most sacred, and most beautiful pagoda in the world. Maybe because of all those qualities, I've always found it difficult to make a photograph that does it justice. Here's the best location (Victory Ground) and time (dusk) I have found.

On second night at Crater Lake National Park, I photographed from South Rim instead of West Rim. Lower position doesn't separate Wizard Island as well, but let me include trees in foreground for depth. On that moonless night, I lit them in a subtle way with a camping lantern. 14-24 @ f/2.8 ISO 3200 25s.

This very different image was made from the same spot as the previous one, at Cleetwood Cove in Crater Lake National Park. I used the 24 TSE lens to extend depth of field from the foreground rocks to the distant rim. As a Canon user I blended two exposures so that the dark foreground would not have image noise - not necessary for Sony sensors.

Cleetwood Cove is the only spot where you can hike down to the lake level in Crater Lake National Park. I was mostly drawn to the lines and color contrast in the water at sunset, but added a layer with the hint of the shore. Do you like it or would you prefer the composition without it ?

The cruise in Crater Lake National Park gives you a totally different view of the lake. As the boat sailed close to the landmark, I needed a very wide lens (14mm) to capture Phantom Ship and its reflexion.

Although Wizard Island in Crater Lake National Park looks small from the rim, I recommend spending 6 hours there (only one boat per day) rather than 3 hours, since there is much to explore along the two trails, Fumarole Bay (previous post), and Summit, pictured here.

Here is a view in Crater Lake National Park that I bet you haven't seen: Emerald waters in Fumarole Bay seen from Wizard Island. Hiking down to lake and taking a cruise gives you a more personal experience of the lake than just watching from overlooks.

Crater Lake National Park has very dark skies. I timed my visit around the new moon to maximize stars. Even with a 24 f/1.4 lens, I needed 30s at ISO 3200 to gather enough light to reveal the stars reflections in the water.

I used the same approach as in the previous image to create a different perspective on a Joshua Tree: lying on my back and adjusting camera position so that sun would be diffracted by a branch. 14-24mm @ 14 to maximize upwards perspective, f/16 to create sun star.
