Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116924955

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

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721024720

But if you do share we will be thankful to you!Next share at 500If you like to be in it you can tag us #promotephotography there is no guaranty but it will help us found your work!Share if you like!  READ THIS NOTE BY +Rodney Campbell (well seen, thank you!)Note that I got an error when trying to add the Circle +Promote Photography  - not the usual domain restriction error where it still creates the circle but the one where it says it can't add one or more people and/or pages.Unfortunately it's +Alycia Miller  entry which is causing the error for me (and also for at least one other circle I'm aware of) - when I remove her from the circle before adding it adds fine. +Alycia Miller  is already in multiple of my circles so not a problem for me but others may not be able to add this circle. I can also see her account looks to have been Fubar'd by G+ at the moment (it's empty of posts)2013-09-01 10:58:4040113457113

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 August 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting JAugust 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 c2013-08-27 10:07:06368826

Magnus Ericson25,068This is absolutely the first time I create and share a public circle. I have named the circle "Artistic People" Most are photographers who continually share their own pictures of good quality.The only thing you need to do to get into, and stay in the circle is to continue to have me in your circles and share your own great photos without a lot of other bling bling in your stream.I've probably forgotten one or more that should have been in the circle, but I'm neither the first nor the last to do so.Hope you like my first public circle and that you pass it along to your own circles.

Steveston Mooring - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/

Dedicated to my Seattle BFF +dene' miles on her birthday. :-)

This is a 30 second exposure of an old mooring in Steveston, which is a great little fishing village in Richmond, British Columbia. The rocks in the foreground cooperated to form a great crescent shape and helped to frame the image naturally...timing is everything :-)

I used a 10 and a 3 stop ND filter, and stacked a 3 stop soft grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast in the clouds and water.

Steveston is a really great little place to visit, with awesome fish and chips, if you stay away from the touristy spots :-)


I used a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter and a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast and detail in the clouds, reflections and water.

Astoria Bridge 1 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I was in Oregon for two weeks over August into September this year for a family getaway. My wife took pity on me and encouraged me to go out and spend a bunch of time doing my photography. For anyone with a baby, you will know that free time and "me" time isn't in abundant supply.

I have seen so many images of Astoria Bridge, so trying to create something unique isn't easy...anyhoo, this is my contribution to the burgeoning supply of Astoria Bridge images...I hope you like it.

I used a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter, plus a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast in the sky, water and around the bridge and pilings.

Crescent Beach Pier 3 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

View LARGE here: http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/Landscapes/i-xz48NHB/A

This is a 288 second exposure of the pier at Crescent Beach, in Surrey, BC, in late December 2013.

This is a great pier at Crescent Beach, which is a photographer's paradise, if the weather Gods play nicely.

I waited until high tide and a low sun position, to go and shoot this pier, to ensure that I had the end results I wanted...I'm really happy with the results.

The light, clouds, subject matter and company were as perfect as one could hope for.

I spent 3 incredible days in the Alberta prairies and backcountry in early September. My good Bud +Kris Schofield was kind enough to put me up and drive me around and show me the stark beauty of Alberta. I finally got to meet +Olivier Du Tré, which was a lot of fun too. Thanks again for your hospitality guys, it was a real treat for me!!

I fell in love with the gorgeous textures and big skies of the prairies. It really resonated with me and I look forward to going back.

Very cool to be included in volume three of this amazing Plus One Collection project for such a positive initiative. Thanks a million +Ivan Makarov, +Andy Lee and team. Please donate to this worthy cause provided on the link I have shared and let's get this moving.

Announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in Plus One Collection print book

And now what many of you have been waiting for - announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in the print book #PlusOneCollectionIII  

Link -> http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Plus-One-Collection-III-List-o (Tip: use CTRL+F to see if your name is there to save time)

It's always a hard task to pick the photos because there are so many amazing ones that we just can't include because we have limited space in the book. Any judge can testify to you of that. We had seven capable judges this time around who went through every submission and we picked the best 285 or so for the book based on the final rankings. 

But what we decided to do to compensate for this is to release a poster that will have everyone's submission posted. You can order that poster on Indiegogo page as well - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

As with the book, all net proceeds from the sale of the poster will go to Saving Eliza fund. 

What's next? Keep spreading the word about the fundraising campaign! We still need to raise $25,000 before the book can go to press. And if you can contribute, please do. ___Very cool to be included in volume three of this amazing Plus One Collection project for such a positive initiative.

Check out the 16 stop #firecrest +Formatt-Hitech IRND filter I just received a couple of days ago!! A huge thanks to +Rod Clark and the awesome folks at Formatt-Hitech for stepping up their game and making the world beating, neutral as hell, Firecrest IRND filters. 16 stops in one filter is a big enough achievement, but making it as neutral as they have is mind blowing!! I have been testing it over the last couple of days and am thrilled with the results. Go and grab yourself one from the Formatt-Hitech website, you won't be disappointed.

This image was created on a very cold, windy and rainy day in February with +Gavin Dunbar and Kevin Boyle. I stood under the pier, trying to avoid the full brunt of the elements, whilst Gav and KB were braving the weather.

All in all, a great day day out and I'm really happy with how this image turned out. The conditions really helped to minimize distractions in the composition.

This is a great pier at Crescent Beach, which is a photographer's paradise, if the weather Gods play nicely.

About time I got around to posting to +Olivier Du Tré's awesome #minimalmonday theme.

This was an image 3 years in the making. Ambleside pier has Stanley Park, UBC, etc. behind it and is a distracting mess in terms of compositions, unless of course there is thick fog. Fortunately, this occurred one Saturday morning in December 2013 and I finally was able to make my vision come to life. Patience really is a virtue and is seriously underutilized in this fast paced world of ours.

Happy Monday everyone.

This image was created on New Year's Day, out at Iona Beach near the Airport. I timed the tide to start at its highest point and then ebb out to reveal hidden gems, such as the log in the foreground.

Yield - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

View LARGE here: http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/Landscapes/i-VDGRnLp/A

This was an image, created at Crescent Beach in BC, just before the end of last year. The birdie was a well behaved model and stayed pretty still for over 3 minutes on top of the yield sign. It's a great place for creating minimalist images, when the clouds are thick enough to obscure the horizon.

I used a 10 stop ND filter and a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast and detail in the water and sky.

Aquatic Park Pier 2 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I am still working my way through the images I created in California back in August this year, but am making some progress, finally.

This was image created whilst hanging out with my Bay Area homies +Steve-Maxx landeros  and +Nathan Wirth. Incidentally, two finer and more talented young men you would struggle to find anywhere else on this planet!! The Aquatic Pier is very curvy and cool and makes for a great subject. I had a 2-1 crop in mind when I shot this and the fog definitely played its part in removing the distracting horizon.

Thanks again boys, words cannot do justice to the brotherly love I have for the two of you :-)

Iona Beach Reeds 1 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

It's nearly the end of 2013 and I finally managed to combine the right conditions and tide levels at Iona Beach to create my most minimal image ever. It was foggy, which completely shrouded the horizon, giving me the perfect opportunity to create an image this simple, with no distractions. I'm so glad I went out and stood in the rain, it was totally worth it.

This is of course for #minimalmonday curated by the amazing Mr. +Olivier Du Tré.

All the best for 2014 everyone.

Vaillancourt Fountain 3 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I was in San Francisco for a conference in early May and had the opportunity to spend a wonderful day with my good friends, +Nathan Wirth  and +Steve-Maxx landeros. This fountain is the source of much derision and debate. On the whole it is pretty damn ugly, but when isolated from certain angles, with the right light, it has a certain undeniable beauty. The water isn't running very often either, so I got lucky on the day I met up with my homies.

Astoria Bridge 1 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I was in Oregon for two weeks over August into September this year for a family getaway. My wife took pity on me and encouraged me to go out and spend a bunch of time doing my photography. For anyone with a baby, you will know that free time and "me" time isn't in abundant supply.

I have seen so many images of Astoria Bridge, so trying to create something unique isn't easy...anyhoo, this is my contribution to the burgeoning supply of Astoria Bridge images...I hope you like it.

Lost Lake 3 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

This image was created on the shore of Lost Lake in Whistler, British Columbia.

It was a glorious Sunday afternoon in September 2012 and the weather Gods really were kind to me that day. It had been 35 degrees Celsius with blue sky for 4 days, which made my then 8 month pregnant wife a very unhappy camper. Thankfully the heat finally broke on the Sunday and the high was 16 degrees Celsius, which made being outside a pleasure.

The blurred shape in the centre of the image is a deck in the lake that people can swim out to and sit/stand/lie on. The water is really cold, but it doesn't seem to stop people...crazy Canucks :-)

British Columbia really is a special part of the world to live in, with so much beauty and diversity in every direction. I really feel blessed to call this place home (technically I call... more »

666 Burrard - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

This is a 10 second exposure of a very cool building in downtown Vancouver...I happen to work in this building, so maybe I'm biased  :-)

Davenport Pier 3 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I am working my way through the images I created in California back in August this year. I injured my shoulder, slipping on some rocks when I was there and it is only now coming right...fun times.

There are a small handful of folks in this world that I categorize as kindred spirits and lifelong friends, with boundless amounts of kindness and patience. +Steve-Maxx landeros and +Nathan Wirth are two such incredibly talented individuals. They were such amazing hosts and gave up a loooot of their personal time to hang out with me and drive me all around California. I get to know them better every time I'm out there and our friendship deepens with each visit. Words cannot express my gratitude for your kindness, friendship and artistic inspiration, Steve and Nathan, I feel truly blessed!!

Tron - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

This is a 79 second exposure of a very cool building in the financial district in San Francisco. I have no idea what the building is called, or where it is...please help me out on this locals :-)

The building reminded me of a scene from Tron and this composition really jumped out at me. I love the precision of architectural photography and it is a huge passion of mine. The architectural bar has been set so damn high by incredible artists like +Joel Tjintjelaar and +Julia Anna Gospodarou that has forced the rest of us to up our game.

Steveston Mooring - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/

Dedicated to my Seattle BFF +dene' miles on her birthday. :-)

This is a 30 second exposure of an old mooring in Steveston, which is a great little fishing village in Richmond, British Columbia. The rocks in the foreground cooperated to form a great crescent shape and helped to frame the image naturally...timing is everything :-)

I used a 10 and a 3 stop ND filter, and stacked a 3 stop soft grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast in the clouds and water.

Steveston is a really great little place to visit, with awesome fish and chips, if you stay away from the touristy spots :-)


I used a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter and a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast and detail in the clouds, reflections and water.

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve is a very special place and is dear to my heart, as it is the first place Nathan took me on my first trip to the Bay Area. The rock shelves are gorgeous there and when the tide level is just right, the real magic happens. I'm pretty sure that the sun was playing peek-a-boo with the beacon :-)

A big shout out to my boys, +Nathan Wirth, +Steve-Maxx landeros  and +Albert Tam ...it was awesome hanging out and catching up. I'm really hoping to get back to San Fran in August for a conference (any excuse will do) :-)

I used a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter, plus a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast in the sky, water and around the rocks.

The techie stuff:

Sony A850 D-SLR
Zeiss 16-35mm Lens
ISO: 100
Aperture: f/14
Exposure: 78 seconds
Focal Length: 16mm
Filters: Lee Big Stopper ND filter, Lee 3 stop ND filter and Lee 3 stop hard grad ND filter
Software: Photoshop CS6 and Google Silver Efex Pro 2

"Whytecliff Park 2" - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

This is an 85 second exposure of Whytecliff Island, taken at Whytecliff Park, in Vancouver in December 2012. This was the first time in 3 months that I had picked up the camera and it felt soooo good to be out. Being a new parent means that my priorities have changed, but I wouldn't have it any other way :-) Every time I get out to shoot feels like a gift, which is the way it should be!!

I ran my first pro workshop this weekend with +Sharon Tenenbaum and +Marc Koegel. It was so damn awesome and I loved every minute of it (except the killer double migraine and throwing up part yesterday) :-) I so look forward to the next one.

I used a 10 stop ND filter, plus a 3 stop hard graduated ND filter to achieve the smoky sky and milky water. The midday sun was low in the sky and provided the perfect... more »

I used a 10 stop ND filter, plus a 3 stop hard graduated ND filter to achieve the smoky sky and milky water. The midday sun was low in the sky and provided the perfect side-lighting source for a more dramatic effect.

Vancouver is such a special place and is so awesome for long exposure seascapes. The clouds and light were perfect that day, which made my soul smile :-)
