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 19:56:06482204CC G+

Thomas Hawk2,473,6682,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 2 of 4 (Ev-La)Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333gThis 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 second circle and includes photographers with the last name's Ev-La. 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 block you too.  I want to surround myself with positive uplifting people. 5.  I like people who directly post their work here on 2012-06-05 16:20:03500152107307CC G+

Thomas Hawk846,3871,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (A-G, Part 1 of 3)1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (A-G, Part 1 of 3) http://goo.gl/WGdFw1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (G-O, Part 2 of 3) http://goo.gl/1yiS61,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (P-Z, Part 3 of 3) http://goo.gl/6nLZEI've shared my photographers circle on Google+ two times now. 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. This isn't even a universal rule of mine. I do have a few friends who use them that I still follow. But by and large, what you get with my circles is a watermark/signature free circle. I also prefer people who are active on Google+ both in terms of posting and in terms of contributing to the community. If the last photo you posted was in November, I probably won't have you in this list.If you were in my photographers circle before but removed, it could be for a lot of these sorts of reasons. Watermarks/sigs, not posting enough, posting too much non photography stuff that I'm not interested in, or all kinds of other things. Who knows. But it's most definitely not personal. (Unless I'm blocking you and then maybe it is personal).Also if you are not in these circles it may simply be because we don't know each other yet. In time perhaps we will become great friends (hopefully). Or you may not be in these circles just 2012-01-18 23:20:26500193111261CC G+

Thomas Hawk277,019So the last few days I've been redoing my circles with the goal of resharing my Kick Ass Photographers Circle when it hit 1,000 photographers. Today it hit 1,000 for the first time and so I thought I'd share them. Because a circle can only have 500 people in it, I've broken this circle up into 2 circles by last name, A-K http://goo.gl/7HVMN and L-Z http://goo.gl/EO0O2.The people in these circles are some of the highest quality photographers on G+ today. Many of them are also my personal friends and people that I've known in some cases for years. Some of them are people that I don't know at all, but I just really admire their work. Anytime one attempts to share a list like this, there is inevitably a bit of negative backlash. It would be impossible to put every great photographer on Google+ on this list. Please keep in mind that if we are friends and I missed you on this list, it is not personal. Staying on top of tons of contacts isn't easy and I'm only human.If you were on this list before and are not now, also please do not take offense. I spent a great deal of time scrubbing this list this time around and was much more strict with the criteria for inclusion. I basically was looking for high quality active G+ photographers who post mostly their own work, who post without watermarks or signatures, and who interact in the community. Not everyone in this list meets this criteria, but 98% of you do.Also, if you're not on this list it may be that I simply don't know you. We haven't met in real life. We haven't interacted online. You may be an amazing photographer but our paths just have not had a good chance to cross in a meaningful way yet. Here's to meeting many more of you kick ass photographers in the future.This is the list that I browse most often on G+. It's where I go to find my daily dose of great photography. I'm sharing it because I think that you too might like some of the photography that is being published by these photographers. Thank you to every photographer not just on this list, but on G+ as a whole for making our daily lives a little more interesting and beautiful with the great images that you generously share.Thomas Hawk shared a circle with you.2011-10-26 20:13:44500187146165CC G+

I faded out from G+ quite a while back.  Spending some time with people from this community this weekend has me taking a renewed look at my online presence on G+.

Of course, after so long inactive, I have to assume I've fallen off their algorithms for visibility.

Already posted previously, but I think that was before the entry categories were up.  So apologies for the repeat.

G+ Photowalks have been, for me, both about capturing moments, and seeing what others who walked the same steps capture, and how what they see is sometimes very different from what I see.

But they're also about meeting new people, which I did, and so included two new people I met alongside the moments caught.

Aha!  So that's how you enter.  I didn't see this when I posted pics, so apologies for the repeat.

It was a day of seeing old friends, and meeting new ones; of long walks in the blazing sun, cursing my stupidity for leaving the house, and of sharing laughter.

The day wound down with the magnificent fortune of the sun setting between the WTC tower and the Gehry building (the two, together, being eerily reminiscent of the twin towers).

The sights and moments of photography were always a delight, but nothing in comparison to the company of kindred spirits.

Spirits I met via G+.  G+, I salute you.

Fertility

I've been down with and then recovering from a nasty cold that settled into my lungs, so missed last week's #macromonday .  So, here is my submission for last week (TEXTURES) and this week (FOOD).

Starring +Kelli Seeger Kim +Jennifer Eden and +Kerry Murphy.

This wasn't my original intent, but as soon as I cropped it, it was clearly Fertility.

(though my wife, from across the room, said "zit, and rather disgusting as well")

It was a mighty good taste combination, too.

This week's submission for #macromonday  (by +Kelli Seeger Kim +Jennifer Eden +Kerry Murphy) with the theme of "Something You Would Find in a Home Office".

While it's unlikely you would find this in any modern home office, you might have found this a long time ago.

D700 with 105mm VR, tripod and flash and trigger, about 12" focal distance (sensor to object).  5 exp. HDR (HDR Efex Pro 2) and then B&W conversion (Silver Efex Pro).

I may have to post some of my other shots for this.  I tried out several different poses before deciding on this one.

I'd been really looking forward to the D600 as an affordable and more reasonable upgrade from my trusty D700.

Then I saw this on the Nikon site specs:

2 or 3 frames in steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 1 or 2 EV

Compared to for the D700:  2 to 9 frames in steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 or 1 EV.

As someone who shoots primarily HDR, that's big.

Sure, 2 EV steps are a welcome change, but having a maximum range of -2 to +2 in 3 exposures (risking banding) instead of potentially -4 to +4 (though the use for that much is limited) is troubling.

I usually shoot 5 exp. in 1 EV steps for -2 to +2, but its still smaller steps per exposure.  Having fewer exposures, to me at least, really is just a bonus for high motion situations, where you want to be shooting for as little time as possible (and the D700 + grip handles that very well except in the dark).  Andth... more »

"Shadows of the Past"

This work has been sitting around in my mind for about a year, ever since I found an old photograph of the North Tower taken about 16 years ago.

I present it here, today, in memory of what once was, and what will be.

"Reincarnation"

I'd originally named this one "Resurrection" but, being an old gamer, it dawned on my that the reborn one isn't the same as the original, hence the change in title.

A few more will dribble in over the days, but now I need to sleep.

"In the Shadow of Shade"

I think, technically, this is not a macro, though it does keep with this week's theme for #macromonday  of LEAF (curated by +Kelli Seeger Kim, +Kerry Murphy, +Jennifer Eden)

In an urban environment, there aren't always leaves to get up close to that also are more than just a leaf.  At least not that I found, today.

"Torn"

This week's #macromonday  theme of ABSTRACT inspired this exercise from me.

D700 with 105mm VR, tripod w/ RRS BH-40 ballhead, LiveView for manual focus precision.  Cable release.  5 exposure HDR processed in HDR Efex 2 and then cropped in LR.

Curated by +Kelli Seeger Kim +Jennifer Eden +Kerry Murphy 

This is pretty far afield from my normal style of shooting.  But I used some techniques I don't normally use, which was both fun and educational.

"Knowing No Bounds"

I think this may be the first time I put something in for Macro Monday.  The theme of EMOTION got me thinking -- what would capture emotion for me.

My son and I call this a "hand hug".

It's a bit early, I know, but if I wait till Monday to post, it may never make it out the door.

It's been about eight or nine months since I was active on G+, but I think it's about time I changed that.

Alas, a day late to learn about an photowalk near where I shot these.  Just my luck.

Some more from Sunday, including a revised processing of one from Sunday night. Probably one more set to add in a few more days.

Upper Manhattan with the +G+ NY Photowalkers gang (well, some of them).

Just a few from today. I'll add more over time; I need to sleep now.

Okay...as landscape photographer, the D800E (lacking the AA filter) makes a bit of sense, though I'm still fuzzy on what impact shooting at high aperture would have to that.

As a cityscape photographer, the D800 makes more sense, due to the oft-repeating patterns in bricks.

And I'm still completely unclear on whether moire is an issue for video, which would have to be one of my criteria for upgrading from a D700.

Insights, anyone?

So very hard not to pull the trigger on a D800E. After all, that's what credit cards are for, right?

These seven images are the AE bracket used for the HDR processing to create the base image posted previously.

The first one is the "base" exposure, that I tried to set up to expose the trees without losing too much of the sky into white blobbiness.

None of these images individually is all that good. Sure, the trees are colorful, but the sky is washed out. Yet together, they create something so much closer to what I saw with my meat eyes.

This is why I shoot HDR.

A reprocessing of what is easily my best shot from 2011 for the #PlusOneCollection by +Ivan Makarov.

This was originally taken on a photowalk looking for Central Park foliage I did in November with some photographer friends I've made through G+.

This shot itself is a 7 exposure HDR processed with #Nik tools (HDR Efex, Color Efex, Viveza -- this is the pre-sharpened shot, so not Sharpener).

It's a slightly different crop than what I posted in November, and the processing is likely similar, but certainly different (since I didn't write it down). I made a deliberate choice to cool off the entire image and then warm up the foliage. The original processing was grey clouds and these have a bluer hint. I felt (though I'm sure some will disagree -- ain't artistry grand!) that cooling the sky gave enough contrast to brighten the trees a bit -- the previous... more »

Lightroom and Multiple Monitors

Bah, humbug!

I've been using two monitors for a few years now. It's great! I have one in landscape (my "main" monitor) and one in portrait to the right.

The one on the right is primarily for browsing and Acrobat -- generally thing that would benefit from tall rather than wide.

It's also handy for Lightroom having the second monitor, especially for portrait shots where they get all small on the landscape monitor.

For some oddball reason, Windows has the monitor plugged into Port 1 on the video card as Display #2 and the monitor plugged into Port 2 as Display #1 (swapping ports doesn't change the numbers, either). To my slight annoyance, the landscape/main monitor is 2 and the portrait/secondary is 1. Not that it really matters. LR happily will use display #1 for the secondary display... more »

A few more from the #NYCPhotowalkers photowalk.

I can't post too many at a time. The foliage was fine, but processing colorful leaves gets old fast and good shots start to look boring and repetitive. I probably have a few more I'll put up, when I can look at orange trees again.
