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 19:56:06482204

Peter From46,398The NEW Visual Artists Circle –– Circle Post  | READ ALL Before You Ask For Inclusion#CircleSharingForThePeopleVACbBy now you all know that I've emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again. So this new validated edition of the VAC is all hot and fresh and you will have an excellent feed of brilliant artwork in your feed when you add this very popular circle. I am proud to promote each and every artist in it. Many of the artists in this circle are better than some of the professional ones that I have come across here on Google+.Want in? READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion.What is the VAC?It is a circle for people that love art and consider it their passion in life.Who can join?Everybody. You don't need to be particularly good or bad –– as long as you have a profound interest in visual arts and MAINLY share your own work in your feed.What must you do?As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get added:1) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get promoted in this circle, you must be prepared to promote your fellow artist as well. Do NOT remove the reshared circle post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares.2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths circle to be as clean as possible and focus on great artwork –– not other bling-bling. 3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state that you HAVE completed all steps. I will check every feed but I won't check twice.Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleAPCb so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-10-08 12:53:4215310987115

There are quite a few who don't follow me but whose work I've discovered.Note: No one asked, begged, or had to do anything to be in these circles except be an active G+ photographer who I happen to follow.That being said, why share circles you are included in?It will help you be seen by different folks. It is amazing when I see how few people I follow in common with even my closest friends and I follow around 2500 people. There are so many good photographers on G+ that it is impossible to find them all.  Shares help make those introductions."D"elighted to know you+Gene Bowker http://rustedrailimages.comWould you like to be in the next circle set?1) Be sure to circle me.2) Be active. Post regularly...3) Be interactive. Respond to comments, etc...4) Be yourself. Post your own stuff, not just reshares.5) Be sure to introduce yourself. Stop by one of my posts and say hi.6) Feel free to share the current circles. (not required but really appreciated)In the end, I make the final calls on who gets in or not based on my own judgement. That is why I'm happy to put my name on them.2012-09-25 22:39:58167682153

Thomas Hawk2,461,0112,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev)This 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 first circle and includes photographers with the last name's A-Ev (although +Marc Evans you are in tomorrow's circle).  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 2012-06-04 16:53:26500226139424
Peter From36,851The Revised & Validated UPCOMING STARS CIRCLE #CircleSharingForThePeopleUCSR2  It's finally here again. I really hope that I have managed to remove everyone with more than 7500 followers from this circle. If I missed somebody, I beg your pardon –– but it REALLY takes time to curate a circle like this.Anyway... I am really proud to present 500 excellent upcoming stars that produce great photography. You don't want to miss this circle. I am sure they will bring lots and lots of great and interesting images to your feeds.If YOU want to hop on the next UCS train, do the following:1. Help spread the word and reshare this circle post. Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow artists. Simple as that.2. Ask for inclusion in the comments and state that you have reshared. I will check every feed sooner or later.3. Make sure that you share your own original photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The UCS is a validated quality circle that should bring people great imagery to their feeds.NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the UCS. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this circle post and let me know that you did so.HOW TO AVOID FLOODING OF THIS POST IN YOUR FEED:*This post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeoplUSCR2  so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.* Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-06-04 12:31:565009393104

Peter From31,163The Upcoming Stars Circle –– Updated Version +Circle Share Well, it's noon Monday CET and it's time to share the validated and updated version of my popular USC. It contains 325 excellent photographers on their way up here on Google+. They all have less than 7500 followers but deserve a lot more than they already have. It's a privilege to promote these wonderful artists. So, check out this circle or add it to your own circles ad hoc –– you won't be disappointed.Do YOU want to be included in the next edition of the USC? Well, if you have less than 7500 followers and are willing to reshare this post in your feed, drop me a line in the comments below and I'll check your stream out. If you have enough decent original work in your feed, I'll add you. No resahre, no inclusion –– no exceptions. (As always with my validated circles.)Why do I want you to reshare this post? Because I believe in sharing and resharing. If you want to be shared –– the least you can do is to help promote the rest of the great photographers by resharing the circle post. If you are not happy with that, I respect that. But don't ask to be included. :)Cheers and #happymonday everybody!PS! If YOU have a circle you want to promote, go to the +Circle Share page and leave a comment on the top post.NOTE! UPDATE! The next USC update reshare will be done in co-operation with my friend +Charles Lupica.2012-04-23 10:29:35325252192135

Looking for some feedback: 

Does horizon straight through the middle work for this image, or should I try to crop to top or bottom third?  I didn't want to crop the foreground, but I also didn't want to lose the color change in the sky.  Ideally I would have gotten this right out of camera, but not sure what I should do now.  Thoughts?

Check out the last album of the Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt.

Well This is it...
our LAST ALBUM from the Anniversary Round of the Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt.
sigh

I can't believe how fast that went!!

For anyone who has been following over the past 10 days, you know what this is all about. 
I give 10 items to 500 photographers of every level,
I give them a month to shoot their take of the item
I collect all images, make them anonymous and have them judged.
I then present each album to the world! (or... my G+ piece of it anyway!)

If you would like to sign up for the next round
Be online at 12 noon (mountain time zone) on Saturday, November 3rd and watch my profile page.
There are 250 spots open 
Spots go FAST (pre-sign for the next round was filled up within 30 minutes) so make SURE you are ready at your keyboard!!

The next round will be a HOLIDAY SPECIAL ROUND!
I'm so excited about the list! And pretty pumped about the judges for the next round!

And I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to my Anniversary Scavengers. I cannot believe I have been hosting this for a year now! Time flies. You all fill up my world with such bright light. You are creative and generous and goofy and I love all of you so much!

And with that...
Here is the LAST album of the round.
I proudly present to you: BLACK AND WHITE
I item - seen 367 different ways.

hugs self and grins___Check out the last album of the Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt.

If you are looking for an opportunity to interact with more photographers and artists, this looks like a good option. +Peter From is a great artist and shares some really good stuff.

The VISUAL ARTISTS CIRCLE –– Announcement Post* | *READ ALL Before You Ask For Inclusion

#CircleSharingForThePeopleVACb (Do NOT tag images with this hashtag!)

By now everybody knows that I have emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again –– the same with my popular Visual Artists Circle. That means that the VAC will be all new and fresh as well, and you will have an excellent way of promoting yourself and find new interesting artists via this very popular circle.

READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion.

What is the VAC?
It is a circle for people that share whatever art they are into in their streams. Whether you're a happy amateur or a pro and really like photography, videography, painting, or whatever art-form you prefer, this is a circle for you. So, I welcome you to join and meet new people with the same interest as yourself; great art.

I will share this circle with everybody on Monday, October 8.

Who can join?
Everybody. You don't need to be particularly good or bad –– as long as you have a profound interest in various artforms and MAINLY share your own work in your feed.

What must you do?

As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get accepted:

1) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get  promoted in this circle, you must be prepared to promote your fellow artist as well. Do NOT remove this reshared post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares.

2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work (and such) but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths circle to be as clean as possible and focus on great artwork –– not other bling-bling. 

3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state what kind of art you are into *and that you HAVE completed all steps*. I will check every feed but I won't check twice. Do not add links to Google+ albums, external websites etc. in the comments. If you do, your comment will be deleted.

Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv 

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post publicly (and not just to one of your circles) and let me know that you did so.

*This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleVACb so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.* 

Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/

Chillin

I haven't had much time to take any pics lately, but here is a quick snap that I took of the newborn this afternoon.  This was a practice shot for this weekend as I am going to try to get some good photos of the kid.  

The more I try to do shots like this, the more I appreciate the pros.  I used to dread and avoid paying for professional photos (and looked for cheap options), but now I seem to be more willing to pay for someone that knows what they are doing.  Time to save up some cash for some new family pics.  :-)

Great list of photographers to follow......

2,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+

Part 4 of 4 (Ro-Z)

Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333g
Part 2 of 4 (Ev-La) here:  http://goo.gl/dX7lR
Part 3 of 4 (La-Ro) here:  http://goo.gl/MP1Q2

This 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 third 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 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 G+.  If you primarily post links to Flickr, 500px, your blog, etc. I probably won't follow you.  G+ photos are larger and I don't want to have to leave G+ to consume a photo.  I also want to know that you are invested in the conversations around your photos here.

I haven't included myself in these circles but I have included +Photo Talk Plus   which is the weekly hangout show that +Lotus Carroll  and I do on Wednesday nights.  I've also included our two show sponsors +SmugMug and +Blurb Books.  Thanks to everyone who supports the show. 

Watch for the rest of this circle over the next 3 days and I'll share them all again when they hit 2,500 in the future.  Thanks to all photographers on G+ (not just the ones in my circle) for making this such an amazing place for photography on the web.___Great list of photographers to follow......

My Little Angel

I had the opportunity to take a couple of shots of my daughter who was a flower girl in a wedding this weekend.  I've got to admit I blew out some whites in that dress.  Lots of respect for those wedding photographers out there - tough job and I can't imagine the amount of stress involved.

Ring of Fire

I'm working on trying to capture some images that represent the Midwest and more specifically Kansas.  This is a image of the blazing sunrise helping do its part in prepping for wheat harvest.

Project 52: Week 19 (Clouds/Sky)

KC Y'all

This weeks theme was tough since I only made it out with the camera a couple times this week, and the skies were completely clear on both attempts. I decided to go with a different view of the KC skyline.
