Steve Johnson33,958... At least for this event. The idea here is a simple one; Rules serve a useful purpose but they should be questioned, broken and ignored on occasion.Post photographs that break at least one photography rule (maximum of 3 photograhs) and note which rule they break in the comments. Here are some example rules that can be laid waste to:CompositionThe horizon a third from top or bottomLeft/right mirror symmetry is to be avoidedThe odd number ruleRule of thirdsTechnicalUse of on camera or undiffused flashWideangle for portraits (fortunately this one is becoming a thing of the past)EditingOversharpeningOver-saturating(Just about over-anything really). OtherShooting down at kids, pets or flowers.These are just a few examples off the top of my head -there are many, many more. If you can think of others please add them in the comments.One useful rule: This is all for fun so don't over think it :)Rules are for Fools2012-09-24 07:00:0034G+

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+

Gailen Mapes60,952Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  J-K - 17 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

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+

Meirav M.7,705Meirav's 42some people have been sharing circles of 100, but me, I like smaller numbers. and seriously, as someone who has under 200 people circled in total, picking 100 would be way over the top. so I went for the obvious number of 42 :)These are not my top favourite 42 or my most relevant according to some algorithm or anything of the sort. And I will not tell you that they are the most wonderful people on earth, the creme de la creme of plusland, the greatest engagers or influencers or whatever managementspeak term is the word du jour. I'll be honest with you, as I tend to be when I'm not making up stories about penguins and stuff, and tell you the truth:These are all people I have had in my circles for a while and I like having them in my circles. They've grown on me. They've become part of my pluslife. I can't know if you'll also enjoy having them in your circles, because I'm not you and you're not me, we have different interests and different preferences and just as you might prefer a different ice cream flavour (I'm a Ben & Jerry's cookie dough gal) you are likely to find different people interesting or fun - but here's a circle of 42 people for you to try out if you would like to, and if you find that some of them are not quite your scene then you can always uncircle them. There's no "till death us do part" in plusland :)and no, you absolutely don't have to add them. It's just in case you are looking for more people to populate your stream.You are, in any case, welcome to cookies from the penguin's self-replenishing jar. We will always have cookies. #SharedCircles  2013-08-10 00:32:3242615CC G+

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 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Sumit Sen57,209A Circle ShareCircle sharing by individuals seems to passé these days, and most shares are curated circles put together on some general basis by a few. That suits me fine because I am not fashionable and pretty faded! :)This circle is not one which contains all my best friends here or all the folks whose photography I really admire. It contains members who are my engagement set. People who follow my posts and people whose posts appear on my stream on a regular basis. Part of the selection has to do with Gplus's stream feed algorithm and part of it has to do with time zones. But these 200 are part of my life on GPlus now and I meet them virtually almost everyday.I am sharing this list mainly for the benefit of my new followers who are looking for worthwhile additions to their circles. I expect that they will not be disappointed by the selection. Finally, comments are closed. You can of course share and plus if you want to :)2013-03-23 15:19:4120001580CC G+

A request and an offer

I haven't been around these parts much at all over the past few months but I do have an excuse of sorts. Before I took up photography seriously I used to do a lot of graphic design. but after the photography took hold I neglected the design side of things. That is changing as we've now formally launched a graphic design/photography company.

The Request 

Of course we have the obligatory Facebook page and would really appreciated any likes or other engagement:
https://www.facebook.com/wolfejohnsondesign

The Offer

Being a new company the portfolio is a bit thin so I have been doing work in return for recommendations, testimonials etc. The final part of this process is to offer a free/logo watermark to three photographers (there is no catch and you'd be treated the same as a paying client) - see... more »

Zenfolio in trouble?

In my experience the moment a subscription based internet service shafts its existing customer base they are on the way out. 

+Zenfolio have just raised their subscription rates for their existing customers by $20. The amount is pretty inconsequential but if Zenfolio have to hit their captive audience up for money then either their finances are in really bad shape or they do not intend to proceed ethically in the future. Neither scenario bodes well. 

Pity, before art.com purchased Zenfolio they looked as if they may give Smugmug a run for their money.

Cosy Mystery Novel Free for Two Days

A couple of weeks back I asked for advanced readers for an early version of my wife's new book. The response was great and very enthusiastic - massive thanks to everyone who took the time to help.

Anyway, this is the final version with all the changes that you and others suggested - Meg has put it on promotion so it is available for free until Midnight Sunday USA CT. 

FWIW I designed the cover and read for dialog, especially the English character and the bad guys - draw your own conclusions. 

Anyway grab a free copy while you can
http://goo.gl/WcIzlv (Amazon)
Kindle only at the moment - paperback should be out within the next ten days.
