|Thomas Hawk||6,721,047||2,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 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. Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh. Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. 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 part 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/3vn0OCPart 3-5: http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5: http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*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.||2013-09-05 16:07:31||471||46||31||110||CC G+|

|Thomas Hawk||6,721,047||2,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 4 of 4 (Ro-Z)Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here: http://goo.gl/Z333gPart 2 of 4 (Ev-La) here: http://goo.gl/dX7lRPart 3 of 4 (La-Ro) here: http://goo.gl/MP1Q2This 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 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 beh||2012-06-07 14:58:20||499||192||218||468||CC G+|

|Jeff Sullivan||2,050,747||The Net Effect of Circle SharingAny time you have the release of such large circles totaling 1500 community members from one with over 880,000 contacts, there will probably be discussions on the pros and cons of circle sharing. At a high level, he added 22,000 contacts yesterday, but if even 500 of his contacts added the circles, 750,000 new connections were made in the community, more than he'll add in a month. I added 500 yesterday, and the 500 people not in his circle shares before probably added much more (so that's a highly conservative estimate). We could second-guess the process, but overall, the community is the beneficiary. Now clearly there are more people which should be recognized and included in circle shares, and many more topics than photography as well, so what I'd like to suggest is that others follow this example and similarly "pay it forward" to the community. Share your own circles, to continue and broaden the interconnection process within the community.

Once when it got to 500 and then again when it got to 1,000. Today my circle hit 1,500 so I'm sharing them again.I have to break them up into 500 person circles because this is the limit on Google+. Also Google limits the number of people you can add to circles per day so I'm going to publish my kick ass photographers circle over 3 days. Today I'm publishing A-G. Tomorrow I'll publish G-O. Friday I'll publish P-Z. By last name.In addition to the kick ass photographers in these circles I've also added three other accounts. Our new photography hangout show which will be on live tonight at 8PM PST +Photo Talk Plus as well as our show's sponsors +Drobo and +SmugMug as a way of saying thanks to them.A few notes about these circles. not to be long-winded, but…Every time I've shared my circles I've gotten haters from it. People who are upset that they are not in them. I absolutely detest that. It makes me not even want to share them because of that. These circles are not meant to be the definitive list of what photographers you should be following on Google+. These circles are simply who I have chosen to follow for photography on Google+ for my own personal consumption. I want to share them because I think YOU may also benefit from having these rich, talented, kick ass photographers in your streams.This is the circle that I browse every single day looking for great stuff to +1 and comment on Google+ and as such it reflects my own personal biases. For example. I hate looking at watermarks. This is a personal preference thing. If you use them, more power to you. It's absolutely your right. But as a consumer of photography I find them ugly and distracting and so I tend not to follow people who use them. This is not a big deal. This is not a personal attack against you if you watermark.

Marine Corps Wedding
Of the many venues the Washington DC area offers for weddings, the Marine Corps Museum is one of my favorites. Starting with the ceremony in the exquisite Semper Fidelis Chapel located in a woodland setting. Dinner in the shadows of vintage Marine Corps aircraft creates a unique and unforgettable reception.

Semper Fidelis Memorial Chapel
On October 22, 2009 the Marine Corps dedicated a new Chapel on a rise overlooking the National Museum of the Marine Corps, just outside the front gate of MCB Quantico, Virginia.
Nestled in a wooded area on a rise overlooking the museum, the non-denominational Chapel, officially known as the Semper Fidelis Memorial Chapel, will provide a special space for meditation, prayer and remembrance, as well as commemorative services such as funerals and weddings.

In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. ~Mark Twain, Notebook, 1935
