Get in touch with other enthusiasts and pros all over the world. An easy way to do this is to browse through the The Definitive List of HDR Photographers on Google+.
I have been using Google+ and a related service called Group/As in the past few months to create a number of different communities. If you have a Google+ profile, head over to the groups that are most interesting to you and register (see below). I am adding the people in these groups to my circles and I will share them on Goggle+ in regular intervals. So, this is a good way to start engaging with the vivid and lively photographer community on Google+.
If you’re not yet on Google+… well… shame on you! Where have you been these last couple of months? Click on the G+ icon to the right and register now!
Communities that I have Initiated

How to Join?
Joining is simple! Just go to the page of any of these groups, copy your Google+ ID into the text area at the top and click the red ADD GROUPEE button to the right. This will enter your ID in a list that I have to approve. So, it may not appear on the group listing straight away. But I’ll go through the groups regularly and approve new profiles as quickly as I can.
What is your Google+ ID? That’s the long number in your profile URL. For example, my profile URL is https://plus.google.com/u/0/115360471097759949621/. Which means that my Google+ ID is 115360471097759949621. You will find your Profile ID in your browser’s address bar when you go to your Google+ profile.
