Gailen Mapes72,155Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera L-M - 27 of 31Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-27 12:11:27188001

Found on an Old Roll of Film

I think this picture was taken in 1975 or 1976.  At least there were other things on the roll that could only be from one of those years...

The camera would have been my Nikon FTn and the lens looks like the 135mm/F2.8.  The film was Kodak, not sure which.  Being that it is old film, there are plenty of scratches and imbedded dust bits, I tried to clean up some of it, but...  :-D

Found on an Old Roll of Film

I think this picture was taken in 1975 or 1976.  At least there were other things on the roll that could only be from one of those years...

The camera would have been my Nikon FTn and the lens looks like the 135mm/F2.8.  The film was Kodak, not sure which.  Being that it is old film, there are plenty of scratches and imbedded dust bits, I tried to clean up some of it, but...  :-D

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera L-M - 27 of 31

Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."

Muffy, 1975

My mom wanted me to come over and take some pictures of her new Yorkie.  His real name was "Brandi" and had some long breeder and kennel name after that, but everyone called him "Muffy" short for ragamuffin.  Mom had just had him groomed and looking great.  This is the shot I like best from the end of the session.  The grooming is obviously falling apart - but that was Muffy all the way.

A 39 Year Old Bunny

Not what you were expecting from the headline, right?  Photo taken in 1975...  Nikon FTn, 200mm/F4.

I know that look.... it's "you've got one more shot and I'm out of here!"

An Offer To Anyone

I just posted a reply to a follower on one of my photos and I want to make the same offer to other beginners.

This person said: "I wish I had the talent to take pictures like this  your albums are beautiful...  thank you"

Here is my reply:  "(name withheld) - all it takes is study, practice and a passion.  It sounds like you already have the passion.  As I look at other photographer's work on G+, I often say the same: "I wish I had the talent..."  I can usually figure it out and even add my own little twists - so that others can say the same.  This way we all get better.

If you are really interested, I suggest you study the old paintings and artists.  Many have a beauty and simplicity that will inspire you.  Then read about the concepts of placing images in a frame - these things were known thousandsof years... more »

An Offer To Anyone

I just posted a reply to a follower on one of my photos and I want to make the same offer to other beginners.

This person said: "I wish I had the talent to take pictures like this  your albums are beautiful...  thank you"

Here is my reply:  "(name withheld) - all it takes is study, practice and a passion.  It sounds like you already have the passion.  As I look at other photographer's work on G+, I often say the same: "I wish I had the talent..."  I can usually figure it out and even add my own little twists - so that others can say the same.  This way we all get better.

If you are really interested, I suggest you study the old paintings and artists.  Many have a beauty and simplicity that will inspire you.  Then read about the concepts of placing images in a frame - these things were known thousands of years ago - it's not that tough.  In the mean time, get a camera - it can even be the camera in your phone and experiment, experiment, experiment!  Try to make pictures like the old masters did.  You can develop (pun intended) your own style along the way. Today's digital cameras make that process almost free.  I can't tell you how many hundreds (thousands!) of dollars I spent on film, developing and enlarging to learn this stuff!  As you can see from the old film shot above, sometimes I got it right - MANY times I didn't.

Oh, yes, if you can get your hands on the old Time/Life Photography series of books from the 1970s, read every page.  They are freaking golden!

To get started, Google "old masters paintings" and "photographic composition."  Then grab your camera phone and start thinking "art," and forget "snapshot."  Practice the rules of composition and lighting (learn that from the old masters paintings and 1930s B&W movies - much of what they tell you online today is impossible for the beginner) and soon you will have some images that you are proud of.

Then post them and tag me.  I promise to be brutal.  But you will learn.  :-D"

And my offer is this:  If you are a beginner and really interested in improving your photography, please put "+Gailen Mapes - critique please" in the text when you post your photos.  Once again, this offer is for serious beginners and I reserve the right to limit the submissions to one per week from each person and I also reserve the right to tell you to try again.  Plus I reserve the right to be absolutely horrible.  I learned the most from the people who told me my stuff stunk - and why.  So I will pass that along as necessary.

Any takers?___

Found on an Old Roll of Film

I think this picture was taken in 1975 or 1976.  At least there were other things on the roll that could only be from one of those years...

The camera would have been my Nikon FTn and the lens looks like the 135mm/F2.8.  The film was Kodak, not sure which.  Being that it is old film, there are plenty of scratches and imbedded dust bits, I tried to clean up some of it, but...  :-D

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 22 of 31

Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."

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

"Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrow shall all pass away, 'ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.
I can't be contented with yesterday's glory, I can't live on promises winter to spring.
Today is my moment, now is my story, I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing."

Still working off my "autumn portfolio"...  And, yes, I did this photo in October, 2013, but someone told me that with the D800E I would want to retake every picture I ever took before.  They were right.  :-)  (The other picture is in this album, it's pretty easy to find.)

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera J-K - 17 of 31

Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."

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 Ihit o... more »

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

Concept Shot

I need to take this one again with a smaller F stop for greater depth of field.  But I like the concept.

Obviously, I've decided that winter is here - a month and a half before it says on the calendar...  I suppose I have to take some more snow pictures...

Minnesota Renaissance Festival ~ 1993

I wanted to upload these 3 additional pictures before I lost the album in my pile of albums...

The lady with the harp was the organist at my church - her name is Ruth Hatfield.  The two pirate looking guys, one with the fiddle were "Yo and Ho" - the warm-up act for "Puke and Snot."  The other picture is of "Puke and Snot" Joe Kudla in the light blue shirt was the original "Thomas Snot" (see:  http://blogs.citypages.com/blotter/2008/08/snot_no_more.php ) and Mark Sieve (violet shirt) continues the franchise today with a new partner.

The One That Got Away
                   - or -
"Plain Old Winter Sunrise (Darn It!)"

Driving to work yesterday there was an incredible "sun pillar" (just Google it...) that went away just as I was able to pull over to take a picture of it.  You can see the barest hint of it in this picture.  <sigh>

Oh, you see the three little black specks in the upper left quadrant?  After cleaning the sensor and finding nothing, I determined they aren't dust.  It's 3 crows!
