7 awesome TOP photos published by Google+ photography enthusiasts on February 1.

Today is #MacroFeatherFriday … all day!!
This is the first macro feather I shared after an impromptu game of #featherpoker with my co-curator +E.E. Giorgi hit the "trending" list one weekend … and we're still having fun! We hope to see one from you! (Read the "How to" below!)

How to play #MacroFeatherFriday ––
We want to encourage you to get up close and personal with feathers and try more of these shots, experimenting with the capabilities of your camera or trying out new lenses and new ideas for composition. Not that we don't like full bird shots, but there are so many bird themes available already, we want you to get as close as you can to those feathers! They can still be attached to the bird … ;o) … but move in and see just how much detail you can get from the feather/s––their lines, shapes, patterns and colors. It's a fun challenge, and we'll be on the sidelines cheering you on! 

You can shoot in situ or create your own lighting setup at home. Most of all, just play, use your imagination and try every crazy idea you come up with! 

I like to create different backgrounds by merely scooting a colorful postcard around behind the feather.
Good resources for feathers can be craft stores, dusters or just finds in wandering around your neighborhood. Maybe there is a pillow in the house you can kill for your art. … ;oD 

We really are thrilled when folks post a feather shot. From what I've seen so far, the possibilities for composition and creativity are endless.

#MacroFeatherFriday is curated by +E.E. Giorgi and +Robin Griggs Wood … We just love to see what you see!

What is Plus Extract?

It's your DAILY dose of TOP Google Plus photographs, which were chosen by an algorithm that combines automatic steps and manual curation. This means that the DAILY TOPs are NOT based solely on popularity, and users with a small number of followers have a chance to be featured in the TOP. We use Google+ API for the automatic steps; Jarek Klimek is responsible for curation and communication with the authors.

We strongly respect the authors and their rights. +Jarek Klimek contacts every photographer featured in all DAILY TOPs and if any author decides that he/she doesn't want to be featured in the TOP, we respect this absolutely.

Catherine Hall About us and Google+

Google+ has flourished into a bustling online community for photographers – and one reason is the exceptional contribution of early adopters such as Jarek Klimek, Editor of PhotoExtract magazine.

Jarek had the foresight to research the new social network and created an authoritative list of photographers to follow on Google+.

His viral list has not only become one of the top referring resources of photography trailblazers, it is also shared and watched by leaders such as Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble and Darren Rowse.

Jarek has helped introduce the work of great photographers to Google+ photography enthusiasts and I was very excited to share his insights with viewers on TWiT Photo.
