    Hey boys - how not to be a dick to women on g+

    When you see an image of a woman, whether it be a selfie or a image shot of her posted or a comment, it's not ok to try and jump her. 

    It's not ok to propose <insert lewd act here>.
    It's not ok to make rude comments.
    It's not ok to make a dick of yourself.
    It's not ok to propose marriage so you can get a visa.
    It's not ok to tell her you're better than her partner.
    It's not ok to try and get her to leave her partner for you.
    It's not ok to call her a bitch or a lesbian because she won't talk to you.
    etc. etc. etc.

    I was hoping this bullshit had finished or at least dropped down many notches to background noise, but after a good friend (no I won't tag her, it will only make you look - she knows who she is and she knows she's important) explained the issues she was continuing to experience I thought I'd write this.

    I offer my support to any woman on g+ (and any male for that matter). There's not much I can do but be positive and troll the trolls telling them it's not ok. I hope the girls don't give up on this platform because of the action of some boys whose knob seems firmly implanted in their forebrain. 

    In short, don't be a dick, because if you are, they'll leave. Respect them and treat them nicely and maybe they'll be nice back once you gain their trust.

    It's really sad what a little boy will say while hiding behind a keyboard. Things he'd never say in real life.

    The Difference between Flickr (and other photo galleries) and G+

    I was just writing this below as a response and then I stopped myself in order not to be boring on someone else's thread. So I can bore you all on my own thread.

    Flickr started off as a serious photographer's platform and then everyone got into it. The user interface and navigation was bare and not attractive but pro accounts could put up a full res file and you could choose which res to look at. I'm still there, to be a bookmark to look at new people and old friends.

    I had little interaction there, people who were kind might come by and star my photo and they were usually people that I had added as contacts and they added me back. No new people unless you go around Explore and add lots of people and hope they add you back.

    Flickr has improved a lot in presentation and navigation but it's still a photo gallery mainly.

    G+ is a place where I hang out with new people I have encounter and continue to encounter.. We may start off talking about one photo and that may be the only photo I find nice - we don't need a gallery of photos to show each other, we aren't here to hold a photo exhibition - I am here to have playful fun with people on topics in life's journey, often narrated through photos but not always. We talk about the subject of our photos, the why, the fun we had and so on. We don't spend as much time talking about the technical aspects of the photo... because it's more social engagement than it is about exhibiting our work. We are quite relaxed about showing our less perfect photos - again we appreciate the effort, the opportunity, the experience more than the actual technicality.

    Over at flickr, I think I consciously recoil and get embarrassed if I put up a less than technically good one there - and that meant my pre-Google+ photos on flickr tended to be cold,, without warmth.

    YMMV

    This is a picture of some of the people who built Google+, but they are not the ones who make it. Those of you reading this do. And I want to thank you all for spending time with us and making this place your own. We've got a lot of exciting things planned for the future and it's been a blast hanging out with you for the last three years.  

    Whether you’re into star gazing, boy bands, or football: you’ve all made Google+ an amazing place to explore the things you love, with the people who love them too. To celebrate our community, create a post and tell us: who are your people on Plus?

    Here are mine:

    +Michael B. Stuart, +Robin Griggs Wood, and +Wesly Smith. These are some of my many people on Plus.

    Three years ago today we started the Google+ project. Back then I took the occasional smartphone photo, but that was about it. It was folks like Michael, Robin and Wesly who inspired me to be creative with my pictures. And because of their encouraging +1s, tips, and inspirational #bokehlicious  pictures, photography has gone from just a casual interest to my new favorite pastime. I've even been introduced as "that guy who takes pretty pictures of flowers!"

    Sigh. I am the least able salesman or marketer but sometimes, corporates amaze me. I own +Corel +AfterShot Pro . It's a competent raw processor, it's not version 1 or beta, it was formerly Bibble which was version 5 I think before it was bought over). The purchase price for new licence is AUD 69.99 - one time - no subscription / rental, no ongoing cost if you don't want to upgrade. 

    So, after a couple of years, they now have a version 2. When I launch the program, it comes up with this teaser dialog - (see 2nd screen capture) - it says "Save 5%" - !!!!  How on earth is that an inducement? 5% for a purchaser that has bought from them before? Duh!

    The sin is, that the upgrade total cost is quite impactful - it's AUD 49.99 - it's a low, low price. That sounds a lot better than a measly 5%.

    BTW Aftershot Pro runs on Mac (and Linux) as well. And I don't see them hurrying to court disappointed Apple Aperture users in the contect of Aperture being retired.

    Sunday Joy
    I finally got to shoot my Olympus EM-1 instead of pointing it at the lampshade and digging through the classic, terse Olympus manual. The camera has quite a few configurable buttons and dials and implications, it will take a some time for me to settle down to what I like. After a few gaah! moments, interaction and manipulation with real subjects (as opposed to the lampshade) taught me some points about my preferences that no amount of reading the manual or reading advice, does.

    Here's a really warming, joyful, fun feature - G+ has indeed encouraged a fun side of life photo journals with those autoawesome ideas, here's one that is built into the EM-1 - a #funcollage - you don't hunch over a computer screen, sorting through which photos will be fun to do like this, you're #inthefield with your #StudioInTheCamera , you point, you shoot, you quickly consider what to do next, and you shoot the subsequent shots to make the collage. It's not about #sittingonyourbehind at the computer - there's this visceral vibe right in your brain as you shoot. The originals are presumably available separately in raw (I will check later). #InCameraCollage

    Tis better to have shot than never to have shot at all
    Quick grab shot with the #Kodak #P880 as I got out of the car. The battery was low and not charging (have to dig out the right charger) - After I shot, the camera shut down - and I had not changed the res from 1024x768 SOOC JPEG

    I came across someone doing a +Steven Wright  (that's old colloquial Melbournian for checking your phone while on a bike). This is I guess the safe way to do it - the bike is stationary and is not of a danger to fellow road users or pedestrians or the rider.

    Newbie Street Photography Tip #2 - Getting enough courage to shove a camera in front of real live people can be intimidating - Stand Behind Glass, it becomes a shield to your nervousness - psst - better yet, try someone who's not breathing.

    The Orange Omen - I was going to ask around at a few shops (including Camera Lane) today but as I made my way there, I chanced on this bright orange bag and these pretty girls. She had just been to DigiDirect as you can see, and I think she just bought a Sony RX-100. Before she could react, I got Ruby working. Oh, animal rights protests in the back.

    I just had a look at some of my auto generated photo stories. For me, I like a photostory (on a desktop PC) when it has flow, whether it is narrative or sequenced wonderment. This one works for me - it's a sequence of scenes after work is done and people Melbourne turns on the magic as darkness falls.
