TechDissected545This is the +TechDissected  #Photography  circle. This is the place where we have some of the most awesome photographers on G+. However, we're looking for more to add to it. Do you fit in this circle or do you know someone that does that's not a part of it? If so, comment with the person's name and tag them so we can add them to our special #Photography  circle!2014-04-11 23:42:09186304CC G+
Gailen Mapes62,357Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 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 Mapes2014-04-09 10:48:351528315CC G+
Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles.

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. 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+

David Marx4,263Shared Circle:  The Photographers Whose Posts Consistently Inspire Me Here On Google+I am writing an article tonight on how to find the right connections for photographers new to the Google+ platform.  My article is geared towards those just starting out here.  One of the things that I suggest in the article is that you start out your Google+ experience by immediately killing off the silly "what's hot and recommended" feed.  In place of that nonsense, I recommend that photographer's new to this platform start out their experience here by subscribing to this circle.This circle is a completely biased list.  This is my own personal list of photographers whose style, and whose words, resonate with my tastes everyday.  These is just a small sampling of the Google+ photographers whose posts I religiously follow and whose art, insight, and consistency inspire me.  This is a small sampling of the artists that I see sharing great art here and individuals who I believe exemplify good Google+ etiquette.   Again, this is by no means a definitive list of all the talented artists currently sharing their work on this platform.  This is not meant to be a list of the artists who have the most Google+ followers nor those who have the most industry influence.2013-04-11 05:20:1342116CC 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+

Margaret Tompkins43,985>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 50,000 FollowersThis is a very special circle.  I’ve not shared it before but I have shared the people in it.  I call it the Graduates Circle.  These are the fine people that I shared with you when they had < 25,000 followers but now they have more – they’ve graduated!  These are the people who are top photographers, very interactive, and are the heart and soul of G+.  I ask each of them to identify those people who inspire them, form a circle and share it.The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have between 25,000 and 50,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle. I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles   2013-02-16 21:06:161261232987CC 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+. Bloggers and people doing mostly reshares weren't included. 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+

Gailen Mapes17,578Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera L-Q - 4 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 November 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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 #circleoftheday2012-11-04 11:46:4638917310CC G+
Margaret Tompkins31,620>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>My Favorite Photographers!  --  Some Wildly Popular!  --  Some Unknown!SPECIAL INFO - I'm asking anyone saving or sharing this circle to remove +Jean Samyr Petitfrere from it.  I can no longer recommend him.The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I routinely follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Who IS Here and Who Is Not?I normally share circles based on follower count, but not this time.  Everyone here is a great photographer!  However, there are lots of great photographers who are NOT here.  The people who are here are the kind generous people of G+ who have embraced me, follow my work and themes, and who reach out to me with their continued support.  They plus and comment my posts.  They interact with me and I appreciate the great conversations!  They teach and I learn!  They post wonderful work that makes me think!  They help make me a better person!  Some have millions of followers and some have very few!  I have included myself in the circle and also the Landscape Photography page. I urge everyone to save this circle.  Yes, you will get great photographers and many who are well known.  You also will get wonderful people who are willing and take the time to comment and share!  They each have high quality original photography content!  You won’t find many animated gifs!  You won’t be disappointed!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandscapePhotography  theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If I’m not following you, but you are a great photographer and interactive type person, then leave me a comment and introduce yourself.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  If I’m already following you, then you know I enjoy your photography so maybe you can be a little more interactive.  Visit and engage in the conversation.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles   2012-10-31 20:34:29496352134242CC G+
Lord Parker21,947A Rare Occasion IndeedAs you may (or may not) be aware... I don't often share my own circles, the reason for this is I like to see my own stream free from anything other than my images, but I intend to change that.Here is a collection of great people to follow, some you will no doubt have in your circles already, but there are a few surprises in here :) So Share...

Everything came together in this image, with penguins entering the sea, and a solar halo above. As we came ashore with our zodiac, I spotted the halo, then quickly changed lenses to my wide angle zoom. I knew from past experience that I needed the wider view to include it all. Next, I needed a strong foreground. Why not some penguins?

This evening was EPIC in so many ways. The "iceberg graveyard," as we called it, presented endless compositions both wide and small. All we could do is gasp, and keep shooting to in some small way, capture the magnificence we saw and felt. "Just breathe," I keep whispering to myself.

Enjoy and please share!

OK, here is the big news! I am heading to Antarctica in two weeks with The Luminous Landscape Antarctica By Air expedition:
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/workshops/antarctica_by_air_2014.shtml

Thanks to Michael Reichmann and Kevin Raber, I was asked to fill in for Mark Dubovoy who had to cancel at the last minute. Using The Photographer's Ephemeris and PhotoPills, I am scouting potential locations and lighting...

BTW, this trip is the reason I was asking about photo packs. I'm going to use the Mindshift Gear rotation180 pack to more readily access my gear on the ship, from zodiacs and during landings. Due to weight restrictions, I can only take two camera bodies and 3-4 lenses. I'm a bit frantic getting organized, but otherwise feeling blessed!

Here is an image made on Nov 22, with my student Calvin Abe (http://500px.com/search?q=calvin+Abe)  at Gates of the Valley in Yosemite National Park. We arrived just in time to catch this amazing sunset.

My version was made with seven exposures using the Photomatix 32-bit HDR plugin for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

This holiday is a great time to reflect on all things for which we can be grateful: family, friends and the beauty that surrounds us everyday, if we choose to see it.

I love to search out this beauty in intimate details of nature, whether in Yosemite National Park or my backyard. I made this image last Friday when working with a private student. We stopped at Gates of the Valley just as the sun broke out of the clouds cast a spotlight of brilliant orange on clouds and cliffs. Barely setting up my camera in time to catch the light, I made a wide-angled view before the light disappeared. 

After processing with seven bracketed exposures in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Photomatix's 32-bit LR plugin, I saw a beautiful image that did not represent my style of intimate landscapes, nor did it transcend the cliched, iconic view. Frustrated, I left the image alone for a few days. Today, I... more »

I am just beginning to process images from an amazing day with my student +Calvin Abe. We started the day out at Tunnel View, watching the day dawn. We were the only two photographers there. The clear skies in the east brought wonderful light to the clouds over the valley.

This image was created with Adobe Lightroom and Photomatix's 32-bit plug-in. Seven exposures where blended together, and adjustments were made in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop CC.

Enjoy, and please share if you like!

I am still editing my autumn images from Yosemite National Park. Yesterday, I discovered this photograph with some incredible color in these reflected clouds. I'm not sure if the color was refracted color in the clouds, or from the water's surface. Bottom line: Wondrous!

Crazy week. So much to catch up with but instead fell behind. PG&E announced a local power shutdown yesterday morning, so I shut down to avoid potential computer issues. And yet the power never went off at my house. Lost day of work. Enough whining...

I want to share with you a new image made on Oct 28 as the surprise snowstorm in Yosemite National Park began to clear. My student and I spent an hour and a half at Swinging Bridge as I helped him photograph the amazing reflections, newly fallen leaves and needles, blurring the swirling leaves with long exposures, etc., until we couldn't find any more "visual explorations!" Sean did not own a telephoto zoom, but rented one for our session. He used far more than he expected!

Enjoy and share!

About ten days ago, I had an amazing two days in Yosemite Valley with a private student , and fine photographer, Sean Kinoshita from Honolulu.  Monday started out with clouds and rain, perfect for subtle fall foliage images. The wind had blown hard when the storm came in Sunday night, so fallen autumn leaves were everywhere to be found. While we stopped for a late breakfast at the Lodge, it began to snow, turning into an epic adventure chasing around Yosemite Valley to capture the falling snow, autumn color, and dramatic light. We didn't stop until the last light. It was very special to share a day like this with Sean, especially since this was his first day ever in Yosemite National Park! 

Here is an atypical image from Tunnel View, as Monday's surprise snowstorm began to clear. 

Enjoy and share!

There is nothing I've experienced quite like a snowstorm in Yosemite National Park. Last week, a surprise storm arrived and I was lucky to be there for both a heavy snowfall and autumn color! Here is an image I made with three vertical frames stitched together with Adobe Photoshop CC.

Autumn is a favorite season for making my ICM Impressions of Light images. I'd had been driving by this sweet gum tree in our neighborhood daily, watching the color change. On Wednesday morning after taking my son to school, I stopped to "paint with light!" I make these images using camera motion during a single exposure.

Someday soon, I need to make a huge print of this one.

During Sierra Art Trails this past weekend, we had three ladies walk into my living room display of prints. One of them looked the first print by the door, a 30x40 inch print of this image, gasped, and then tears of emotion flowed from her eyes she was so inspired by the print. We talked a bit, she asked about the print's price, and we showed her a smaller print. After browsing a while, she and her friends left. The next day, she returned to buy the small print. She said she would hang it where she could see it everyday. 

Of course, I was deeply moved by this reaction. I have had a long and blessed career, but sometimes it seems like a never-ending marathon to keep business going. This weekend I was reminded that sharing the beauty I find is such an honor and privilege. My passion for "landscapes of the spirit" lives on, inspired by the beauty around us everyday, and by when my... more »

We had a very successful weekend during +Sierra Art Trails. It is the greatest honor to share my art with visitors. I especially enjoyed that my favorite and best-selling image found a good home with a local photography collector. This Limited Edition print is nearing the end of the edition!

Thanks to all that came by to visit!

For display at this weekend's Sierra Art Trails, I printed a 24x45 inch canvas print that is spectacular at this size. This is my Impressions of Light interpretation of Yosemite National Park's Horsetail Fall.

I made this image in Cook's Meadow on Sept 10th while working with a private student. The Ansel Adams Gallery posted this online today:
_____________________________________________
Veteran Yosemite photographer, William Neill, recently was in Yosemite Valley to capture a spectacular lightning shot during one of these storms. He tells the story of how he captured it below:

"While photographing Half Dome and the elm tree in Cook's Meadow, a spot of weird warm light caused by the Rim Fire appeared on the dome with dark storm clouds behind. I was working with a student at the time. While she saw the lighting happen, my camera was auto-bracketing at the time! Ansel used to say, "Luck favors the prepared mind." I know I was lucky to catch this but sometimes being out where something might happen is half the battle."

On Friday, I spent from sunrise to sunset with a private student. The valley was clear and quiet. Along the Merced River, the forests and cliffs reflected the lush greens of summer. My 90mm Tilt Shift lens allowed for sharp focus across the surface of the water as well as a fast shutter speed that preserved the ripple shapes. At this location, we worked on wide views as well as +intimate landscapes.
