Gailen Mapes62,738Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  G-I - 16 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-16 10:44:251522011CC G+

26/100 - Colourful Carnation

This is shot number twenty six for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black! I was very pleased with the way this one turned out as I really love the colours of this small carnation bloom! :)

Toughened Glass

There was a bit of a disaster back in February, when the strong winds that swept the country managed to blow out several panes of glass from my dad's greenhouse! 

All was not lost however, as when sweeping up the shattered remains of the toughened glass, I managed to grab a few abstract shots of the destruction! 

This one was my favourites as I think the broken shards look a lot like ice! :)

25/100 - Chrysanthemum

This is shot number twenty five for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black! This is a shop bought Chrysanthemum which I've lit mostly from behind! 

In my most recent images, I've been trying to concentrate on making the flowers look more three dimensional! 

I quite like how the lighting has transformed this ordinary looking chrysanthemum into something a little more dramatic looking! :)

22/100 - Aubretia

This is shot number twenty two for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

 These are the pretty little blooms of an aubretia plant! 



This photo was taken back in March! I really need to keep up with posting the images I'm taking for the project, as I'm actually now up to shot number 34, which I took yesterday!

Cherry Tree Blossom

Sorry for being such a bad contact this week! I've been so busy, I've not had any time for photography! I finally got out with the camera today and was very pleased to find a cherry tree in blossom - about a month earlier than is usual!

Fooling Flickr Photo Pages Using Chrome

Not everyone likes the new photo page that Flickr is now using, including me! It's actually giving me a stiff neck when I read comments on my 27" iMac!

Anyway, I thought I'd write a blog post about how to get back to the old photo pages if you're using Google Chrome, until Yahoo redesigns the site again...

 It is the small pom pom like bloom of a kerria bush!

18/100 - Pieris

This is shot number eighteen for my 100x project - where my x is flora on black!

You may remember back in January (shot number four - see other image in this album) that I posted a picture of these flowers in bud? I said the buds would "open up into beautiful little white bell like blooms" - just like this! :)

Can I take this opportunity to wish Happy Mother's Day to all mums out there! Keep up the good work - you're all doing a sterling job! :)

17/100 - Forsythia

Here is shot number seventeen for my 100x project!

I found this was my most difficult shot so far! Getting the flashes set so that the yellow wasn't blown out was the first problem to overcome, but finding a composition that suited the flowers was equally as hard! 

When I shot this, I was happy with the composition, but looking at it now, I'm not so sure!

Maybe forsythia is just a difficult flower to photograph?

16/100 - Easter Cactus

Here is shot number sixteen for my 100x project! This is an Easter cactus bloom - which is about a month too early! My plant has approximately a gazillion flowers on it this year - give or take a few - and I fear all will be gone by the time Easter actually arrives!

15/100 - Grape Hyacinth

Here is shot number fifteen for my 100x project! 

The grape hyacinth are now out in force near where I live, but my own are resolutely refusing to show themselves! This is one from a neighbours garden!

I'm a bit disappointed with the lighting on this one as the right hand side of the flower is a little underexposed! Oh well, I've got another 85 shots to perfect my technique! :)

14/100 - Crocus

Here is shot number fourteen for my 100x project! 

This crocus is one of my favourite images so far! It was quite tricky to get the lighting to look natural, but I think I managed it!

 I just wish I'd picked a nicer looking specimen! This one had been knocked over by the wind, and I obviously felt sorry for it! :)

13/100 - Helleborus

Unlucky for some - but not for me - here is shot number thirteen for my 100x project! 

This hellebore was a completely unexpected find in my dad's garden! It just appeared, growing in a border underneath a couple of bushes! Obviously I had to take advantage of this gift from nature and shoot it for my project! I'm now poring over the pages of plant catalogues, looking for variants to grow next year! :)

Here is shot number twelve for my 100x project! 

I've shot this spectacular looking primrose from the front many times this year, but thought I'd try something different for my 100x project, and shoot it from behind! 

I must admit that I quite like it this way! :)

11/100 - Lily Of The Valley

Here is shot number eleven for my 100x project! 

I was very pleased with how fast these Lily of the Valley pips grew! This particular one took less than a month to go from planting and into flower, which I find quite remarkable! The flowers are tiny, and look really dainty - they also smell wonderful too!

I spent quite a lot of time balancing the flashes for this one to avoid any blown highlights in the petals, and am pretty pleased with the end results! :)

10/100 - Quince

Here is shot number ten for my 100x project, which is actually a bit worrying! 

Theoretically, I should be on shot eighteen or nineteen by now! I guess spring needs to happen a bit faster to give me more subject matter to work with! :)



This flower is from a Quince bush that produces fruit every year, although I've never tried making jam from it! Maybe this year? Has anyone here made jam from quince fruit before? Is it easy? Do you need many fruits? Does it taste nice? Is it worth the hassle?

It's a while since I uploaded a water splash, so here's one of my favourites from a session I had over a year ago!

Yellow Crocus

Here is shot number nine for my 100x project!



The crocuses were the first of my spring bulbs to arrive last month, but I've only just got around to shooting one against a black background in my tabletop studio! 



It was quite tricky to light this one, as I was trying to capture the texture and sheen of the petals, without blowing out the colour!

 

I'm very pleased with the results! :)

Pollen Picker

The insects are coming! I've spotted a few flies already this week, and also a couple of enormous bumblebees! 

I wasn't quick enough off the mark to capture them with my camera, so I had a quick peek in my archive and found this hoverfly enjoying picking pollen from a hydrangea stamen!

Primula

Despite having hundreds of bulbs ready to bloom in my garden, and also having thousands of seeds ready to sow in readiness for summer, I still couldn't resist purchasing a box of these lovely looking primroses! Now I've just got to find somewhere to plant them! 

I think I see hanging baskets in my future! :)

I can't believe that it's been over a month since I posted an image for my 100x project - despite posting quite a few spring flower shots recently! I shall rectify that today though with my first daffodil shot of the year! Mine are still weeks away from flowering, but my dad's are just starting to come into bloom! :)

Standing In The Centre

Spring has been in the air - and gone! After only two days of fairly nice weather, it's rained for most of today - and now it's just started to hailstone, thunder and lightning! 

Whatever! I still can't resist uploading just one more flower macro! This is an extreme close-up of the centre of a crocus! :)

Let There Be Light

Finally, we had a beautiful day, and what's more, there were some flowers to shoot! 

It wasn't all good news though! This beautiful little crocus was nestling in between the broken glass of a window that had blown out of dad's greenhouse…

QE2

As I've not taken anything new this week, but have been scanning some old prints, here's another one from my film days taken with my trusty Zenit E! 

This is the QE2, sailing up Southampton Water at sunset, circa 1989… 

I'd like to know, in my latest article, I ask the question - Do you shoot film? (http://www.ipernity.com/blog/iangrainger/696115)

Whitby

This is a panoramic view of Whitby Abbey I took circa 1988 with my trusty Zenit E! 

Despite taking a copious number of notes about every shot I took back then, I have no idea of the exact date this was taken, what the camera settings were, or even what type of film I had loaded in the camera! 

I can't even find the negative - and, as you can see, my scanning abilities leave a lot to be desired! 

However, the image serves its purpose, and can be used to illustrate my latest article - Do you shoot film? (http://www.ipernity.com/blog/iangrainger/696115)
