Rarely share circles like this but like the idea of a free pixativity account.
The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | MAY 2014 | READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ASKING FOR INCLUSION

The first two PAC's (March & April 2014) were great successes and I want to thank everybody who participated in it! Like my old APC Circles, this new MAY PAC will be another great way to enhance your feed! I will check EVERY SINGLE feed and guarantee that your stream will flood from quality images when you add this circle when released.

Please note that I have reset (deleted) the April Circle and the show begins from scratch again. That way I can assure you that the circle is filled with FRESH content and COOL new photographers every month! :)

How To Qualify To Future PAC Circles

If you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the May PAC.

The difference between this circle and the old APC is that I now will be giving away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified). 

(For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The PAC will be of the same high quality!

The Guidelines

Yes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:

1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines. Tagging friends increases your chances of being added.

2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow G-plussers.

The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.

Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle.

3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :)

4) Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Still;members should reshare this post and  let me know that you did so in the comments.

(How to obtain a Premium account to the PPD can be found here:

Please Note

If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.

Release Date

The next circle will be released on May 5. Keep an eye open for the up-coming Circle Post.

Now, let's make this May PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.

Spots And Dots

I've had a wonderful weekend off the grid, with family. I recommend going off the grid, sitting these devices off for a time. Got some good shots, created some new work. Here's one of them.

Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend.

+Alex Lapidus This one used macro lens, AfterFocus (for lens blur) and PS Touch (for motion blur), though I could have used PS Touch alone for both.

A Tutorial on Blur for the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers

Thanks for putting the blur mentorship program together +Alex Lapidus!

Hope this will be of some use.

A Motion Blur Tutorial Using PS Touch for Android Phones

In this tutorial I will show you how to use PS Touch for phone to create a motion blur effect. This blur will not cover the entire image, but will be a selective blur to create a sense of movement in an otherwise still frame. I will also show here how to make a gaussian blur in PS Touch, to fade the background of an image.

In this motion blur tutorial I use PS Touch to create the illusion of fast moving objects passing by a still frame.

Coming Up For Air

Took a long run this evening, from the lake, home. Catching my breath, so this one seemed appropriate. Enjoy your day.

A Long Parade of Button Pushing

Been delving into abstract these days, but fizzling out like I did in my art days, without direction, and uncertain what the point is. I need a point. Definitely a point.

My website:

I use the hashtag #Mobilography for all mobile photography work. There are quite a few others who use the hashtag as well. Smartphone photography is my personal outlet of creativity.

I am a father of two beautiful children. I live with my family in Stockholm, Sweden and happily spend most of my time with them. My home is filled with the sound of their laughter.

I have a Masters in History and Education.

Jesus' teachings are incomparable though I find truth in many, many places. Don't worry, I'm not a bible thumper, but a scientist as well as religionist. Science and religion -- religion of the personal kind that is -- are complimentary, compatible and when harmonized via philosophy are desirable. My God is a verb, not a noun. So you won't hear me talk about "him" so often.

If you do not love, you have nothing.

 Someone was kind enough to make a Google+ Timeline for me and about 400 other peopleThe others can be viewed here.

 I am a partner of, beta-tester and also translator for the Swedish translation of the website.
