Scott Jarvie375,881POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURESIt's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight.This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event.SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINKIt's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all.You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums.Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to.BENEFITWell it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most. I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion.To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks likeON AIRThis will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout.I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing.If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't.SPECIAL GUESTBecause I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things I will have my good friend and great photographer +Susan Marinello on the show to facilitate the discussion.She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well.We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access.DIRECTIONS1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album3.  IMPORTANT If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video.4. Make sure the album is Public access5. Add +Scott Jarvie  +Susan Marinello to your circles6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites.IMPORTANTIt bears repeating:If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video.DShare your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00148G+

Gailen Mapes60,985Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  L - 18 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. 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 circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-03-18 10:24:3761404CC G+

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+

Feeling a bit tired and grumpy I felt like processing some clean mountain air was in order. This is a close up shot showing off some the details in Burney Falls.

Boom! Remember this side of me? It's still in there. I was digging through my landscape folder of images that are marked to process. Man this one has been temping me for over a year now. Those early Spring storms that blow in at Sunset. 

Who wants to get up to the mountains and shoot some skies?

This needs more animated GIF

I've never made my own custom animated GIF before. Learned something new in Photoshop.  Who know such wizardry was possible?

These girls were doing a super cute pre-game "Pump it Up!" cheer.

This was just three frames shot by hand, auto-aligned in Photoshop and then animated to a GIF. Google it!

Matt is paying homage to gangsta rap. Straight #thuggin #yo

Lighting info: Gridded beauty dish for the main light just above his head. A speed light above and behind aimed at the back of his head focused a narrow 105mm to give a slight rim light.

Today, I wanted to explore some different emotions. Like so many other photographers, I automatically jump to the smile. Why are we afraid to capture other emotions besides happiness?

So you are a photographer and put up a website to make it official. You are open for business. The only problem is your portfolio website probably sucks and you don't even know it. 

Today I wanted to talk about three common pitfalls new photographers make when putting their portfolio together. There's no reason your website can't be awesome and attract new clients.

As a photographer, we naturally want to please people with our photographs. For many of us, we can go down the road of people pleasing which is a stifle to our creativity. We'll play things safe and get stagnant because if you're trying to make EVERYONE happy, you'll make yourself miserable catering to every whim and opinion. 

Why not forget about all of that, produce what you love and attract people who are like minded?

I tackle this topic in my post today.

Tonight was game four in the Tournament of Champions (TOCs) for the Red Bluff Rebels. While tonight was their last night, I'm still proud of them and the great (and highly underrated) job Neil did growing this season. 

I had my camera ready in the dugout as the losing error cost them the game. As you can tell, it hit him hard! :)

My favorite portraits are the ones that just make sense. Genre's like fashion where you look at the model and wonder, "what on earth is going on here?", don't really do it for me.

Today my son Matthew, got to pitch his very first Major's game. While he needs a lot more experience, he held up well to the stress and did his best. I'm proud of him.

Now, on to the next one!

I got out and braved the mosquitoes to shoot a local cross country #mtb  race. These guys were tearing down this rocky section. It was pretty exhilarating!

To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as...to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you're dead.

So you're in fast shooting situation and you don't have an assistant to test out your light on, what do you do?

I had to think quickly so I stuck my tripod in there to check my exposure and lighting ratios. It did the trick.

Gotta think fast. Have you ever had to act quickly in a fast paced shooting situation?

Do you guys ever wake up feeling the social media mehs? I've been stuck in a rut where I just don't really care about sharing what's been going on in my life. I'm still shooting and busier than ever. I just don't feel the compulsion to share. 

How do you guys like to get over these hurdles?

The one place I seem to feel free to share for some reason is Instagram. I'm not really sure why either.

Have you ever tried to shoot sports indoors and started to hate how much noise and motion blur your pics have? I know I have. Here's how I overcame this problem shooting a recent wrestling tournament.

It's that time of year again. Grass stains and snow cones down at the ball fields. It's little league. I've got five boys and they're all playing. Crazy schedules are the norm and the car is always packed with chairs and sunscreen. I love this game!

When I had a day job I used to run up to the mountains around Redding on my lunch breaks with my friend and co-worker Aaron Patterson. One day we were looking around Clear Creek when we found these really cool granite formations in the water. Unable to fit it all into one frame, I shot this with six vertical frames to create a pano. 

I remember trying to process this over three years ago when I shot it. I kept failing at the stitch and ultimately got frustrated and these frames eventually got forgotten. I found them yesterday and managed to pull it off. 

Don't ask me where this is, because I have no clue what so ever where we found this. :D

There's a lot of pixels in there so be sure to see it full screen!

Fern Canyon on the Northern California coast is such a unique and beautiful place. It's also one of the toughest places to shoot. Everything is moving, so sharp pictures precious and are to be treasured. When the sun was still up, I liked the way the light filtered down hitting the ferns leaving an aura of mystery and intrigue.

Sadly, it's been my very old PC that's kept me away from G+. The current design would just bring my 7yo machine to a crawl and it just made it a chore to use. It had saddened me because over the years I've made friends that I regret letting grow cold. 

Yesterday I finally got a new modern PC and G+ is a joy to use again. 

Here's a shot of Shackleford Falls found near Etna, CA. How many people knows where Etna is without looking it up?

All this rain had me thinking about waterfalls today. So I jumped into my archives and processed this little spot on Crystal Creek in Whiskeytown. I've shot the main waterfalls a million times, it's the hidden stuff that you have to go and find that really gets me excited these days. Maybe less iconic, but it really fuels my creativity.

Some of you locals may recognize this spot and realize how much of a balancing act it was to slide down into this hole where all the water was flowing down into. I was literally standing over a section of water flowing under my tripod while leaning back on a bolder for balance. Good times :)

I'm going through my images from the Corning hosted wrestling meet down in the Glen County Fairgrounds. At the first meet I shot available light and I was really pushing the limits of my camera. The images were way too grainy having flat color and contrast. So I knew I needed to bring some light into the gymnasium. 

I plan on a full blog post explaining my new lighting setup, but the proof is in the pudding as they say. I shot for 7 hours straight shooting over 1000 images and the batteries held up to every frame I took. Not a single misfire.

So Happy For You

I woke up this morning to a mile long list of photographers #HumbleBrag ing about how amazing #2013 was for them. I made so much money, I traveled to xyz and flew 100k miles, I doubled my prints sales, I just booked this huge gig! I'm #soblessed #amazingyear #puke #gag

I decided start looking into who these people are. I discovered that not one of the five I looked at are full-time pros. All of them were serious "weekend warriors", not having to rely fully on their photo income to survive. I don't begrudge those people at all and I really am thankful their side-business is growing. As someone who made the plunge this year, this gig is hard, way harder than you can ever plan for.

So my advice to anyone on social media for any reason, please refrain from the obligatory #humblebrag. It's more than a platform to tell everyone how... more »

I went on a search for a plant called Pipevine for an editorial assignment. I guess my editor didn't know they completely die back in the winter. Oops.

On the way back I tried my hand at shooting a verti-rama.

I've been using Induro Tripods for three years now and they're still my favorite. If you're looking for a great mid-range tripod, look no further than their Adventure Series tripods. I've updated my review of the AKB2 below.

Have you ever wondered what goes into a big commercial advertising shoot? In this blog post I shared my thought process starting with the concept all the way through the implementation of this shot.

If there's enough interest, I will record a screencast showing the entire edit. Let me know in the comments on the blog post if you're interested.

Spent a little time here in the locker room to get this one. Ok well, not really. I'm just experimenting with a three light setup and dropping him into a background. I don't think I completely sold the fake here, but I blame that on the background. I didn't shoot it myself.

Happy Waterfall Wednesday!

This was a fun shot to put together. It shot this back with +Alex Lapidus and +Linda Villers came up to shoot some waterfalls with me. I manually blended this shot together from three shots. Two were for exposure. One to expose the rocks and another for the water. The third was to get the foreground plant in focus. (I for the life of me can't remember what it's called). I also bumped up the ISO for the foreground because there was wind blowing the sprout around and I needed to freeze the action.

It looks great on screen, but I screwed up the DOF for the back third of the shot. I thought I'd have enough focusing on the middleground at f/8, but the background is a bit soft. It wouldn't look good printed bigger than 16x24 or so.

Boom! Remember this side of me? It's still in there. I was digging through my landscape folder of images that are marked to process. Man this one has been temping me for over a year now. Those early Spring storms that blow in at Sunset. 

Who wants to get up to the mountains and shoot some skies?

I'm organizing my Feedly feeds this am. Sadly I don't read most of these blogs anymore so I'll probably be removing them. I crave blogs that have solid information, not just fluffy top ten lists all the time.

Do you even use RSS readers anymore?

So my blog has been neglected and that's putting it lightly. I've pretty much locked it in a dungeon, starved and called it names. It still has a slight pulse and it's time to perform CPR and get some counselling. Now that I have time, I'm going to be blogging at least weekly.

Check out this post to sort of get a feel on where I'm going with the blog in the coming months. I hope you enjoy it. http://ericleslie.com/blog/photography-is-hard-work
