Morning all :) Fancy casting a vote on +Richard Pennells poll?
A Landscape Photography Survey
Pls do vote :-)
Does scouting a location beforehand matter?  I personally like the unexpected aspect of making discovery in real time, because I generally have an idea of where I wanna go and photograph. I like going with the flow. That doesn't mean you should wander aimlessly :-)
The Picture below is from the first day I went out landscape photographing (using a film camera) hand developing and printing in a darkroom. Of course I use digital these days. Once I visited a location I have a idea of whether I should return there. You don't always get the perfect weather for instance.
Looking at google maps won't tell you everything about locations, it can give you a general overview, but if you rely solely on it you might actually miss a photo oppurtunity

I prefer discovering on arrival
Depends on whether I have time

Chesterton Mill from +Chris Day 
I was up at Chesterton Mill at midnight last night (when the Council switch off some of the streetlights) as the Lyrid meteor show was at its peak. What a great night for stars. If you look at this in large view you'll see I just caught one meteor.

Drama on the Kent Coast from +Matthew Wiseman 

+Visit Kent ! ♥ 

Only the Lonely can sit and wait for a little love to come along!
Sadly this old boat has had it's day. Dried out, beaten by weather and sun.
Another shot taken in Dungeness, Kent, UK.
Sweeping clouds flowing over towards France. Was a pretty breezy afternoon.
Dungeness is a well know photography playing field with ample opportunity to get some amazing shot. Landscape and well weathered objects scattered around the land.
Also, home to the famous / infamous Dungeness Nuclear Power plant. Originally built in 1965 and a the latest addition in 1984. Some of which is being decommissioned.
An amazing place with amazing views.

Albino Squirrels in Selsdon Wood

There had been over resent years reports of Albino Squirrels being spotted in the wood. See my blog for the story.
There had been over resent years reports of Albino Squirrels being spotted in the wood. There is photographic evidence of them on the Friends of Selsdon Wood web site taken some years ago, but try as I might I had not seen one.

YOu might like this from +ImageBrief 
We basically need 3-4 backgrounds of London/OR UK City that will allow us to place a car within so it looks as if the car is naturally in the scene (the angle of the cars is added as a ref image).

We are a London based car hiring service so will be needing images/photography which shows/suggests London OR City based driving.

Please read the notes carefully as they describe the mood/feel/tone we’re generally looking for with our photography. Whilst these contain young people in them, it would also be great to see options without people in so we have more flexibility on the position of the car.

In general, the imagery has a sense of optimism, warmth and connectivity, works well against the bold a striking graphic elements.

Consider more candid, situational 'moments' whereby it feels as if the viewer is part of the scene as opposed to unnatural staged shots.

The photography should feel authentic and relatable for the target audience.

Lens flare and out of focus elements create depth and warmth.

In terms of treatment use full bleed photography that is slightly desaturated where possible for impact.

'3' is the magic number in terms of maximum amounts of people within the shot.

We need several images to be used mainly on our digital platforms 
(and potentially printed collateral).

Hello Everyone :D Do you dislike the way ALL your posts to various communities show up on your Google Plus Profile and make it look like you only post THE SAME PHOTO over and over again? Well... the GOOD NEWS is you can stop this from happening :D YEY! 
Just follow the tip below to 'cleanse' your profile stream of all those multiple posts. Bob's yer Uncle!  :D  _tell your friends!_ please
A Tip on POSTING TO COMMUNITIES & managing the view seen by others from your main profile... 

Did you know that if you visit your account settings (find it by hovering over the button to the top left of your screen - under the word GOOGLE) and then locate the section titled Profile, you can tick a box that will stop the same pictures appearing multiple times on your profile page no matter how many communities you post the same image to?

If you are still seeing multiple post after carrying out the above try...
the community settings you have set up. There's a bit under the cog in the community that says 'also show post in my home stream'

Hope you find that tip useful :) 

Best wishes The UKPC Admin Team
