Pat Kight14,404@113977984500465768287  said she wants the Scavengers under her tree for Christmas. Let's do it! Drop by, say hi to the friends you've made during the Autumn Scavenger Hunt, share a few photos of your own festivities. (Invite going out to the Autumn Scavengers circle, but I've enabled the "on air" feature so folks from past Scavenger events can see it, and you can invite other Scavengers).Scavengers Holiday Party2013-12-24 21:00:00150 
Lady Fran W7,679Can you make an ordinary running kitchen tap look fab?This challenge came about following a conversation in a thread with +Megan Huddle (thanks for the inspiration babe!). Whilst on a recent trip to New Zealand, I got my very first 'soft milky water' shot of a stream, and purely by luck. I had no ND filter, no tripod, just good light and a little bridge to lean the camera on. See here - http://goo.gl/Vpz58I'm now obsessed with trying out this kind of photography wherever I go. I'm searching for streams, waterfalls, beaches, you name it. +Megan Huddle suggested I could make anything look good (uber flattered). .. and so the challenge came about. A camera, an idea, and a plain old running tap in the kitchen sink.    Can you make it look fab?   I think you can. Work your magic. Show us what you’ve got.Any camera, and setting, any processing.It’s all open to your imagination and creativity.Sooooo, why not give it a go?  There's no prizes I'm afraid. No rewards. (Unless some super generous sponsor out there wants to throw something in as incentive.) Otherwise, it's all about the glowing recognition, compliments and praise from your G+ peers. Due date: 11:30pm, Friday 8 December Saturday 9 December -----------------------------------------------------------PS PUBLIC EVENT! - Apparently one can't invite large numbers of guests to an event (ie big circles), soooo, please feel free to forward this around and get people involved. =)Photo challenge - A simple tap2012-12-08 13:30:0072

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

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 23:16:1649012223

Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 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.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  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 3, 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/17ujpn*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.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204

Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213

Lady Fran W3,302Yet another photography circle BUT ...There are photography circles floating around out there like falling leaves in Autumn; however, this circle has be designed with a goal. To open up the world of Google+ photographers to a newbie. This circle is primarily Australian focused with a reasonable Melbourne contingent (yes, I'm biased!). There is also a splattering of some famous faces and high content providers. By adding this circle to your circles (you can rename it if you like) your stream will without fail, fill with some wonderful talent. Engage with these people, and you will find they will engage back. The more active you are, the more you will find the sentiment returned. I give you my 100% money back guarantee that you will find people in here that inspire, encourage and motivate. Remember, it takes two to tango. Unlike the blue zone (Farcebook), Google+ is a conversation. It's not one way. Post to your hearts content, let us meet you and see your creativity, but be sure to share your knowledge and perspective on our work too. Especially mine of coarse =PThis circle has professionals and enthusiasts alike. There are images coming from high end DSLRs, point-and-shoots and phones alike. Some you'll like, some you'll hate. Trim the circle to your own taste. If you get a notification it's because you're in the circle!To all those in the circle, feel free to keep a copy, share it out, slash and burn, completely ignore, which ever takes your fancy. I apologise for the spammy notification (assuming you get one) but I wanted to ensure you knew that you were shared out in a circle. Consider yourself famous!2012-12-04 05:35:4711327317

Margaret Tompkins30,121>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 Followers>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>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.  Each has < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle), and most have between 10,000 and 25,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  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 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  2012-10-08 18:04:38500337118265

Thomas Hawk2,461,0112,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev)This is the fourth time since joining G+ almost a year ago that I'm sharing my photographers circle.  I shared it with 500 photographers, 1,000 photographers, 1,500 photographers and now 2,000 photographers.  I have to break my circle up into four 500 photographer circles as that is the G+ limit.  Each day this week (Mon.- Thurs.) I'll share a different circle.  Today is the first circle and includes photographers with the last name's A-Ev (although +Marc Evans you are in tomorrow's circle).  A few notes about these circles.  I always get hated on when I share them by people.  Inevitably if I include 2,000 people, I will leave 50,000 people out.  This is not intentional or personal.  This circle is not "the best" photographers on G+ or in the world.  It doesn't mean if you are not in my circle that you are not a "quality" photographer.  This list is simply photographers that I've stumbled across for whatever reason over the past year and have chosen to follow their work.  In some cases I've gotten to know the photographers in this circle personally -- through photowalks and trips, hangouts, in real life, etc.  Many of these people are or have become my friends.  Most of the photographers in my circle though I don't even know.  They are just people whose work I admire and want to consume -- I hope many are future friends.  :)I use some objective criteria with this circle but I use a lot of subjective criteria too.  This is, afterall, my own personal circle that I look at and +1 from every single day.  My aesthetic taste and personal preferences may be very, very different than yours.  This is ok.  Art is subjective.  That said, here a breakdown of my own preferences and biases that influence who I add into my circle.1.  I like people who are active on G+.  If you haven't posted one of your photos in the last month you probably are not in this circle.  I use a script to uncircle inactive people regularly.2.  I like photographers who mostly post their own photographs.  I dislike clutter and "dumb stuff" in my photographers circle.  Excessive reshares, circle shares, memes, gifs, youtube videos, posts not about photography, web links, etc. make me uncircle or move people to a different circle.  I also like photographers who regulate how much of their photography they post to their stream.  I don't want to see 50 shots in a row of someone's vacation.  I think about 5 photos max a day feels about right to me.3.  *Controversial* I dislike signatures and watermarks.  You will find photographers in my circle that use them.  It's just a bias, not a hard and fast rule.  I mostly want this stream to be as watermark/signature free as possible.  I totally understand and respect your reasons and decision for using watermarks/signatures.  I hope you equally respect my decision to not want to consume photos mared up with them.  Please don't turn this into a discussion about watermarks/sigs, I've spent the last 10 years thinking heavily about this issue.  It's just a personal preference and bias.4.  I like people who are active, positive, helpful, enthusiastic G+ community members.  I dislike people who are rude, mean, complainers, trolls, harrasers, etc.  If you say mean things to people, about people, about their art or their work I don't want to follow you.  I'm fine with debate and disagreement.  It should just be done respectfully -- there's a huge difference between respectful disagreement and rude behavior.  Not only will you not be in this circle if you are rude, I'll probably 2012-06-04 16:53:26500226139424

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 08:51:42465909793

Gailen Mapes9,722Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-F - 7 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 500 members.My last share of the "hand picked" circles was April 26th. As 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 3rd for this set.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...2012-05-03 18:16:45378424

Jerry Johnson5,061────────────────────────────────────          Monochrome Monday       ──────         Circle L-Z for 16 April      ──────              "thank you"           ──────────────────────────────────── • Firstly, we would like to thank everyone for participating in #monochromemonday ! • There was a very good turn out this week with over 900 people taking part! :-)• We include those who post MCM photos AND those who comment on them, because we believe that the interactions between people is a huge component of what makes this theme so special!NEW• Starting this week, we will share some of the best images contributed this week from the +Monochrome Monday page. So even if you don't add this circle, since Google+ requires users to circle a Page before that Page can share their posts, please be sure to add the Page so that we can include your image if/when we select it. Images that have more than a certain number of pluses (To be determined) will be added to the gallery almost without question. The curators of the theme will also pick images to add regardless of the number of pluses. This way, everyone will have a chance of being shown in the "gallery". The gallery shares will generally take place on Thursday or Friday.Hopefully the circle includes everyone that contributed to Monochrome Monday this week, but experience says we missed some. Everyone is important to the success of the theme and we apologize if we missed you.+Charles Lupica +Hans Berendsen +Jerry Johnson +Monochrome Monday and our newest curator +Manuel Votta would like to thank you for joining us this week. See you next week!!If we missed you we're sorry. Please let us know in the comments and I will try to make sure that you are included next week.Note: We want to be up front and transparent as your curators. Many of the people in this circle received a "notification" that we added them to our circles. This is a temporary circle that we have to create based on the tools available to us on this platform to build our circles, and please know that we can't keep everyone in the long term. We will keep people that have circled us as long as we can, but we may need to eventually drop some of the people that added us. #circleshare #sharedcircles +Best Shared Circle ◊◊◊◊2012-04-18 18:00:13468421037

I was thinking of entering this months competition, but I'm just not sure:
a) Where I post the photo - just in a normal post but share with the community?
b) Can the picture be used elsewhere or just in this competition

+Pam Boling showing just how amazing G+ is with photography mentorship!

The Seeing Compositions mentorship is ready for sign-ups!

Important: If you reshare this post, please disable comments.

This is a special program to help you improve your photographic composition skills through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. The primary goal of this workshop is to help you learn to see and capture better compositions. I will be taking on a handful of people for a six-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I have been a photographer for over thirty years and have worked professionally for much of that time. I am currently an Apprentice in the Arcanum under the tutelage of +Robin Griggs Wood. I work in many genres, though my current bent is primarily landscapes and macro.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not about basic camera operation or technical aspects of photography. You will be learning the ART of photographic composition and how to make your photographs more appealing. We will explore ways to draw your audience in and hold attention.

This will be an intensive Mentorship. I will ask that you give your all, as will I. Your reward will be commensurate with your investment of time and effort. I expect you to be shooting a LOT because the more you practice, the better ingrained these concepts will become – and the better photographer you will be. There will be weekly assignments based on a theme/concept. I will ask that you shoot ten photographs based on the theme, but you will only be required to post two or three of those. The remaining photos will be on the honor system and for your benefit because, again, how much time and effort you invest determines how much improvement you will see.

Selections will begin January 19 for the mentorship beginning January 28 – I chose a Wednesday to give us a chance to settle in, introduce ourselves and have a weekend to get out shooting, for those who may have regular Monday to Friday jobs.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.)
• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You have no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop.
• You are willing to shoot and process 10+ photographs per week (only three will be shared in the community, but they will be the “best of” the ten or more that you shoot).

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here:  https://plus.google.com/108127039931400009413/posts/2qJuFWSuAZm
(your application will not be seen at any reshares) and answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation
8) How often you currently shoot

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CC
3) Trees, landscapes, waterfalls
4) To sell prints of my work
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this 
8) Twice a week

I will read all responses. However, I will not be able to respond individually to each of you. 

The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is run by program directors +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford and +Alex Lapidus

I'm entering my first proper photo exhibition and competition and I'm going to be creating a series especially for it. I'm just a little confused about model release forms in Australia. Do I need one? Is there a standard form I can use? Can I get consent digitally? Any help is much appreciated!

Great work +Tamara Pruessner - I definitely want to see new, fresh stuff in my stream!

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.
