Whittling down a circle

My photographers circle had over 300 people in it, and my stream was just constantly flying by, so much so that I'd be scrolling seemingly forever just to find a post that popped up an hour earlier!

The worst part was that most of the material flying by wasn't remotely photography related, but came from people in that circle. Clearly, a purging was in order.

I tried a few times, but as nice as the circle-editing interface is, it was crap for this use-case. Double click a circle member (ctrl-click doesn't work from there so forget multiple tabs), scroll through their stream a bit, browser back button, find your place again, take action. 300+ times? Forget it.

So I took a different tack. Created a new circle "photographers2", and went through the original circle selecting only those names I recognized from consistently seeing quality photography-related content. Then I deleted the old photographers circle, and renamed "photographers2" to "photographers". VIOLA.

My stream has slowed to a manageable velocity, has a much higher signal/noise ratio, and even viewing just the stream of my photographers circle now gets me straight to the quality material I'm after. In short, +Google+ now works as it's supposed to.

So without further ado, here's my hand-picked list of 39 photographers with great material to enjoy and learn from.

so I just purged my circles by quite a bit as the main stream just moved too fast. but now it hasn't slowed down and I'm still seeing posts from people who aren't in my circles. what's up +Google+ ?

I've really got to do a serious selfie. Always being behind the camera I'm left with slim pickings for a profile pic.
