Vago Damitio8,775Last Circle to share for now... SEO and G+ Marketing plus one or two others...Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-13 00:24:38136011

André Distel4,019The People I FollowSo, here it is - my first circle share. I have a lot more people in my circles than I actually follow. With limited time and other social networking sites, I figure, I can only follow so many on a regular basis. The people in this circle are all top photographers and highly active on Google+ or simply interesting people.Don't worry if you are not in there. I have had probably not enough time to look at your stream in more detail with all the people I already follow. Just comment and let me know you are out there :). I always appreciate if people share circles with me in them, so I thought I might do that as well.Cheers,Andréwww.andredistel.com 2012-11-06 19:30:09213508

Cynthia Pyun11,332Share a circle DayOk, so I made that one up. But as I've been honored to be a part of several circles in the past, I wanted to share one that I watch all the time. This is my Bay Area circle. Disclaimer, it's not perfect and it's not all of you wonderful people I've met. I did this awhile ago, and am happy to add folks along the way :=)If you live in CA/northern CA and I've had a chance to remember you do, I've probably added you to this circle. It started out because I wanted to see what other photowalks were going to pop up in the area. Thanks to +elizabeth hahn and her +Northern California Photowalks (and More), my Google Calendar is automatically updated :=)But if you are new to Google Plus, and you want to see some great work and find out about a photowalk in the Bay Area, check out Elizabeth's calendar and add it to yours, and go ahead an use this circle to see some amazing and talented work!2012-06-15 17:13:151179013

I'll share a different circle.  Today is the fourth circle and includes photographers with the last name's Ro-Z. 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 you2012-06-07 14:58:20499189204457

+Photo Talk Plus EP36 with Lightroom PM +Tom Hogarty

+Thomas Hawk and I had a great time this past Wednesday with panelists +Chris Chabot, +Jan Kabili, +Joe Azure, +Karen Hutton, +Keith Barrett, and our special guest +Tom Hogarty, +Adobe Lightroom Product Manager. 

We discussed news stories, including 20 Pro Tips for Photographers on Google+ (http://goo.gl/2tLsx), the new Android Powered Nikon, and hidden view counts for your photos on Google+ (hint: you have to go to Picasa).

Tom gave us some cool demos in LR4 and answered questions for us about everyone's favorite photo editing program. If you're not using Lighroom 4, well, you should be.

After you watch the show, enter our contest to win one of two copies of Lightroom 4 from +Adobe (each will come with a free copy of +Trey Ratcliff's new and amazing LR4 Presets!). To enter all you need to do is make a post on Google+ and tell us either: your favorite feature we discussed on the show, make a feature request, or talk about how you will use LR4 if you win it. You must include the hashtag #LightroomPlus  in your post. You have until next Wednesday when we'll pick the two best and announce those winners on our show that day at 8PM Pacific.

Congratulations to +Billy Wilson, who won a copy of LR4 and Trey's presets live on the show, courtesy of +SmugMug (who also threw in a free year of their Pro Service) because they are one of our fantastic sponsors, who are also well integrated with Lightroom. We love them!

Tonight's +Photo Talk Plus is going to be AWESOME!!!! We have none other than the pioneer and godfather of abandoned night photography himself +Troy Paiva as our special guest.  

Troy has been making amazing light painted night photographs for over two decades.  Along the way he's published three books and published thousands of photgraphs online, including many at his website http://lostamerica.com  Troy's documented the out of the way, abandoned California desert in ways that few others will ever come close to.  He regularly holds workshops on his well regarded technique.

Troy has long been a big influence of mine and it's his distinctive night scenes that have encouraged me to pursue some of this type of work of my own (like this image of a submarine on Mare Island here).

We will have some wonderful panelists joining +Lotus Carroll and I tonight to help interview Troy who also are greats themselves in abandoned photography including +Sly Vegas +Scott Frederick +Amy Heiden +Ian Ference +Ricardo Lagos and as always +Vidcast Network's wonderful host +Keith Barrett.

+Lotus Carroll  and I had a GREAT time last night interviewing the wonderful +Tamara Pruessner.   Some of you know Tamara through her photo work on Google+ as well as her work as one of the hosts on the photography video show +LIFE Through The Lens.  Tamara talked about her photography work as a storm chaser, her work with flowers and her future plans in the upcoming year.

Panelists for last night show included +Scott Jarvie, +Tara Romasanta, +roma g  and +Keith Barrett.   

Last night's topics included the Google+ "Get Started List" (I think we all agreed that +Scott Jarvie  should be added to it), how Meagan Kunert ruined her career, http://www.potsc.com/potsc/how-i-ruined-my-career/ Louis Gray's post "Pictures or it Didn't Happen," https://plus.google.com/100535338638690515335/posts/gPxJjs7kavQ  and a few new Google+ enhancements added yesterday.  https://plus.google.com/108713714482790711568/posts/KjbpsMBvxuW

Our show has a new sponsor - we are thrilled to announce that +Adorama is joining us! On the first show of our partnership we are are giving away a $500 Adorama Gift Card that can be used at http://adorama.com. We're so excited to have another fantastic company on board supporting us! Please celebrate with us and make sure to tune in tomorrow night, when our special guest will be +Sly Vegas.

More details in +Thomas Hawk's post below.

Like a Morning Sun -- Chicago, IL

+Lotus Carroll and I are SUPER excited to announce that +Adorama has joined +Photo Talk Plus as a sponsor for our show.  

When we started the show we decided that we would limit the number of sponsors that we'd accept to four.  All four companies had to be companies that we both naturally enthusiastically used and that we would feel happy supporting and personally endorsing.  Adorama is definitely that type of company.  I've bought lots of gear from Adorama over the years myself and have found them to always have consistent low prices and GREAT customer service.  Our other two sponsors +SmugMug and +Blurb Books equally are companies that both Lotus and I can stand behind and personally endorse.

Many in the photo community know +Joel Meisels who has been Adorama's public face to the photo community for a long time.  Joel has been an instrumental advocate for photography in social media working for Adorama and Lotus and I are excited that we'll get to work with him more now.

To kick off our new relationship with Adorama, we will be giving away a $500 Adorama gift card live to one of our viewers on tomorrow night's show.  Be sure to tune in at 8PM PST when we interview the one and only +Sly Vegas.  Joining Sly will be panelists +Richard Hay +kora foto morgana +Robin Griggs Wood +Jon Armstrong and +Keith Barrett 

And the next time you need to buy anything camera related check out http://adorama.com where you will get a great price and great service on whatever you might need.___Our show has a new sponsor - we are thrilled to announce that +Adorama is joining us!

Photo Talk Plus Episode 4, With Special Guest Trey Ratcliff

Last night we recorded a very special episode of Photo Talk Plus with +Trey Ratcliff. Thank you to Trey who offered such a heartfelt candid personal interview about both him and his work. Trey is a very humble individual who spends so much more time promoting other photographers than his own art and work. He's given so much to the Google+ Community and I enjoyed having an opportunity to really focus more directly on him as a person and an artist.

If you missed last night's show, I really hope you'll take some time to watch this episode and get to know a little bit more about Trey. Trey is a good friend and this was one of my favorite hangouts I've done on Google+ yet.

Thank you to everyone involved with last night's show including my cohost +Lotus Carroll and last night's panelists +Lili Ana +Chris Chabot +Brian Matiash (thanks for giving away a copy of +onOne Software's Perfect Photo Suite) and +Keith Barrett

Thanks also to Keith for broadcasting our show as usual on the +Vidcast Network and thanks to everyone who participated in the chat room while we broadcasted. You are the community and are the ones that make Google+ such a great place for photographers.

A special thank you also to our show sponsors +Drobo and +SmugMug http://drobo.com http://smugmug.com

Thank you also to +Chee Chew and everyone on the Google Hangouts team for giving us this remarkable new "On Air" feature that allows us to make these videos available here on Google+ and on YouTube.___Thanks to everyone who helped make last night's show possible.
