Gailen Mapes71,649Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera L - 18 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.2014-11-18 11:49:1668001

The essence of a rose
From my essence series

I went to the Woodland Park zoo just north of Seattle yesterday with my family.  It was a beautiful day and a wonderful outing.  Next door to the Zoo is the Seattle Rose Garden sponsored by the Seattle Lions Club and  maintained by The Seattle Rose Society. The roses are at their peak and I couldn't help but take a few minutes to visit the garden.

Most of the time, when I shoot on black, I use a black background.  I was feeling a bit pushed for time so I didn't get the cloth out.  (Lame excuse for being lazy).  I did try to orient the camera to put the rose in stark relief to its background so that I could more easily remove the background in Photoshop.  I always pay for these transgressions.  It takes 30 minutes to remove a background in PS and 30 seconds to get the cloth out of my bag.

I took this a few months back on a walk near my home.  I was looking through my archive of images and I just loved the wonderful color and soft, fuzzy feeling of it.  I'm not sure what it is but it looks like it could be some variety of dandelion. 

For those of you wondering, this also makes a nice B&W images but it has a very different feeling.

This for my friend +Jerry Johnson, who asked me to tag him if I posted a mirrored version of the pumpkin.

I bought some new toys a few weeks back including a 16 x 20" mirror and some studio lights. I also bought a light tent but the pumpkin was a bit too big to shoot in the tent. Because of the size of the pumpkin (large) this shot posed more of a problem than I had anticipated.  I shoot most of my macros with a 100mm lens.  To get far enough back and to get all of the reflection in the mirror had me on a ladder, against the wall of my little "studio". 

The pump[kin is sitting on a mirror. The mirror is sitting on a piece of black velvet cloth; which is under the mirror and directly behind it.  The are two 250w studio lamps; one positioned to left and slightly above the pumpkin and the other to the right and table height.

The image was processed in Photoshop, Nik Color Effects Pro 4 and Nik Silver Effects Pro 2.  In CEP4 I added a Tonal Contrast filter. In SEP2 I converted to B&W using the "Fine Art" effect. In Photoshop I added a mask with a gradient so that the mirrored image would fade out.  To the final image a added a High Pass filter layer set to soft light overlay.

This strange looking "flower" is a Pulsatilla vulgaris or Pasque flower.  This was taken quite a few years ago on a mountain in Switzerland.  I was looking at my old images and came across this.  I quite like the white fronds on the pastel blue of the sky.

I was at the Asian grocery store the other day and I saw this weird looking item in the vegetable section.  I knew right away I had to get a couple of them and make an image like this one.   Here, in high contrast B&W, it looks like some invading alien pest or perhaps one of those things you might see on the TV show, "Monsters within".   My wife took a picture of the sign but I can't seem to find it at the moment so I'll leave it to you to decide if it's of alien origin or not.

I took this quite some time ago, back in 2007 when I went bicycle touring in France. I rode 1100 km, staring in Avignon and ending in Nantes. I was reprocessing some old images when I came upon this and thought it would make a great B&W image.

Sol Duc waterfall in Olympic National Park. 

The framing of the image, using the rule of thirds, was specifically chosen to offset the line of the waterfall along the "left power line" and the bridge along the top power line.  The traditional view of the waterfall is centered but I liked the tension and leading lines created by offsetting the image.

Many of you may remember the color version of this that I posted some time ago; https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/103236949470535942612/albums/5649711399052621137/5884808248653571778?pid=5884808248653571778&oid=103236949470535942612

This image figured prominently in my book, Grand angle sur la Collegiale de Neuchatel, published in Switzerland by www.alphil.ch.  The original image was created using nearly 350 images: 35 HDR sets of 9 images plus nadir and azimuth sets. The B&W version was processed in Color Effects Pro 4 to add some additional contrast, then converted to B&W in Silver Effects Pro II using the High structure (smooth) preset plus a slight selenium tone.

Earlier in the week, I spent a few days camping in North Cascades National Park with my son.  This picture was taken at "blue hour" from a pier on Lake Diablo in Colonial Creek Campground.  

16mm long exposure of 30 seconds @ f/7.1

Since the image is only shades of blue and black, I have included the monochrome themes. Please forgive me if you think this was inappropriate.

Since several of my friends have shared the images they selected for submission to this year's ipa awards, I thought it would only be fair if I shared my selection of images.  I entered this series of 5 images in the panorama category.   Since these aren't "traditional" panoramas, I'm hoping that they meet the category.  Since each starts with a full 360° panorama, I think I'm OK there.  The image of the Place des Halles is more correctly called a mirrored ball.

Last week I shared a more SOOC version of this.  Here's a slightly enhanced version.  This has a bit more drama to it.  Sun rays were added to the image using Photoshop.  There are may ways to do this.  If you're interested simply search youtube for "adding sun rays in Photoshop".

#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. 

It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. 

When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines
• Sharing mostly their own work
• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified
• Little to no, promotional material. 
• Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.
• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. 
• The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" 
• They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. 

No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. 

Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.

Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.

I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  

Validation
This circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes looked at every profile in the circle before deciding to include that photographer.  We have also included three pages that we manage, +All Things Monochrome +256 Shades of Gray and +The Art of Photography. 

Reasons for exclusion of photographers we reviewed:
-- animated gifs that don't demonstrate a technique
-- mostly blog posts / twitter style posts
-- mostly link to external content / their blogs
-- don't post regularly to G+ [no posts in the last 4 weeks]
-- nothing but product promotions / workshop promotions
-- Not enough original work of their own in their stream
-- High "noise to signal ratio"

A fully vetted circle like this takes a lot of work so please help by plusing, commenting, and sharing this post. 

+Best Shared Circle +Shared Circles on G+ +Shared Circles Magic G+  #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   

Best regards
+Charles Lupica with the help of 
+Scott Thomas 
+Brian Dukes 

For anyone sharing this circle, I recommend that you add a few fresh images to your stream to keep your content balanced.___

The essence of a rose
From my essence series

I went to the Woodland Park zoo just north of Seattle yesterday with my family.  It was a beautiful day and a wonderful outing.  Next door to the Zoo is the Seattle Rose Garden sponsored by the Seattle Lions Club and  maintained by The Seattle Rose Society. The roses are at their peak and I couldn't help but take a few minutes to visit the garden.

Most of the time, when I shoot on black, I use a black background.  I was feeling a bit pushed for time so I didn't get the cloth out.  (Lame excuse for being lazy).  I did try to orient the camera to put the rose in stark relief to its background so that I could more easily remove the background in Photoshop.  I always pay for these transgressions.  It takes 30 minutes to remove a background in PS and 30 seconds to get the cloth out of my bag.

Wild teasel
hmm, is there any other kind :-)

From my on black archive collection of flora.  This is a rework of an image I presented some time ago. While I love the full image I think people will appreciate the closer view that really shows the intricacy of the teasel bloom.  

As with most of my on black collection, this was taken outdoors using natural light.  I draped a black satin cloth behind the teasel to provide the black background.  When out shooting, I try to remember to take along a piece of black cloth, and occasionally a white one.  When I'm feeling like dealing with more gear, I take my 7 in 1 lastolite reflector set: which is really very light and fits in my camera bag.  But you know how it is, whenever you go to pick up that bag and put it on your shoulders, you think, "Do I really need that extra 6 ounces in there." Lol

Iris on a black background

Update, This iris is an  Iris pseudacorus, native to Europe, western Asia, and northern Africa. It's considered a noxious weed in many States here in the USA. In Washington State it is listed as a Class C Noxious Weed.

This iris grows along the banks of the Sammamish River a few miles from my home in Redmond WA.  This was taken in natural light without disturbing the plant.  I had a set of lastolite seven in one 17" collapsible reflectors and used the black reflector as a background.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Wild Iris on black


I try to always carry with me a black background when I go out shooting; especially when I intend on shooting wild flowers in their natural state.  Sometimes I use a piece of black satin cloth I carry in my camera bag and sometimes I use a set of Lastlite reflectors that have a belt loop. In a pinch, I'll use my camera bag, the back of a handy "assistant", or a coat.

The lighting here is natural light filtered through the tree canopy along the banks of the Snohomish River: Redmond, Washingtion USA. 

A special tag to my friends +Jerry Johnson and +Kari Johnson  who like monochrome floral images.

I'm reading a book by the great nature photographer +Art Wolfe and Martha Hill on composing great nature images. (The New Art of Photographing Nature: An Updated Guide to Composing Stunning Images of Animals, Nature, and Landscapes... )  One of the things they have to say is that the viewer shouldn't need to guess your subject.  If the subject isn't obvious, you need to reconsider your composition.  You would think that by now, I wouldn't need to read advice from other photographers.  Perhaps that's true but there's always something to be learned by reading how other people see the world.  After all, really seeing is the heart of photography.  Every photo instruction book every written tries to teach us how to see.  So, with that in mind, I added my 1.4x tele-converter and a macro tube extension to my Canon 70-200mm f/4 USM L lens, mounted it on my old Canon 5D Mark II andwent ac... more »

Contemplation

I've been reading The Mind's Eye, a collection of writings by Henri Cartier-Bresson.  Bresson was one of the greatest photographers of the 20th Century and was one of the founders of the Magnum photo agency.  He is well known for his "Decisive Moment" and he made some of the finest street photography images ever created. So often we too become obsessed with capturing the decisive moment that we overlook the moments of contemplation leading up to the decisive moment. We wade out in the water or zoom our super telephoto lenses to capture the moment the surfer crests the wave. We forget the contemplative walk the surfer makes on his way to his goal.  We see so much of life as end points that some times we forget that the journey may be more important the destination.

This image was taken on Copalis Beach, just North of Ocean Shores Washington.  <... more »

Blossom on black 






I went for a walk the other day and saw this bloom on a tree in the woods. I'm not up on my tree identification so I'm not sure what this is.

I have set of reflectors that I sometimes take with me when I go out for a walk. The case for the reflectors is black.  I also carry along a set of spring loaded A-clamps.  For this picture, I clamped the reflector case to the branches behind the bloom. The camera was on my tripod and I used a remote shutter release to minimise camera movement.

Whispering water




I was out hiking with the family a few weeks back and I got them to stay in one place long enough to take a few long exposure images of this "waterfall". This is a small waterfall on the way to see Wallace Falls at Wallace Falls State Park in western Washington.

Molly, ever faithful companion. 





Processed in Lightroom, Photoshop CC, +Nik Photography  #nikcolorefexpro4 , and #silverefexpro2 . In Photoshop I added a set of luminance masks with curve layers and I added a highpass filter layer set to soft overlay to get a bit of a Dragan Effect.

The fisherman

My son turns 14 in a few hours so today I took him fishing on the opening day for fishing in this lake, called Cottage Lake.  It's only a few minutes from our apartment and so I thought this would be a nice treat for him.  He loves to go fishing and is always asking me to take him. Today I put aside all of the reasons to procrastinate and headed over to the lake for fishing.  We did n't catch any but some of the people around us did  so that kept him interested.  I think of the few times I went fishing with my father and so it's a sacred duty to see to it that he has some memories of his dad taking him fishing. 

A special shout to my friend +Jerry Johnson because I know he has a few sons too.

Essence: tulip on black

A few days ago I shared the color version of this.  Today I'd like to share the Black and White version.

All of our images are made up of what appears to be a continuos range of tonal values. Different tools we have in our post processing toolbox allow us to manipulate these tonal ranges without really understanding what they're doing. We slide sliders, we tweak values until the image looks something like what we had in mind.  All the while, we're really using these tools to sculpt light.

A lot of light sculpting can be done in - camera by choosing the right angle for the light and for the camera.  Today, much of  the sculpting is enhanced when we start to manipulate the tones to emphasise some feature relative to another.  Luminance masks, are a superb tool for manipulating the light in post processing.

Capture the light. Become a sculptor of light. ( as per +Joel Tjintjelaar)

Primary Subject:: Tulip on black

Vision for the Image:  The essence of simplicity is mastering the complex. To remove the distractions of color, to use light and form to discover the essence of a tulip.  

Processing Software:
~ +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for DAM and minor tweaks
~ #colorefexpro4  Color Effects Pro 4 - detail enhancer and pro contrast filters.
~ +Adobe Photoshop CC with luminance layer masks and Orton Effect using the PS control panel from +Jimmy McIntyre
~ #silverefexpro2  from +Nik Photography 

Processing Details: 
For processing, I exported the image from Lightroom to Photoshop CC. In Photoshop CC, I created a new layer via Color Effects Pro 4 and used the details enhancer and pro contrast filters.   I then applied  a series of luminance masks, provided by a friend.  For the final processing, I  flattened the layers and applied an "Orton Effect" action from Jimmy McIntyre. I also stretched the stem to improve the balance of the composition. To the stem, I added a levels layer and added a gradient mask to have the stem fade to black.  Lastly, I did some small tweaks Lightroom.

Don't tiptoe through the tulips

Here's an image from my recent trip to the tulip fields near Mount Vernon Washington.  This is one of the fields at Roozengaarde: where there's more than 100 varieties of tulips - most of them in full bloom. I choose this image especially for the folks of +PurpleCircle  #allthingspurple

Yellow tulip on black





Over the past few years, I have shared many of my "on black" images and some techniques for creating on black images while out shooting in nature.  Normally I do this by carrying a black satin cloth in my camera bag.  This time, however, I shot the tulip on a very gray sky.  The well defined edges of the tulip allowed me to select and remove the gray sky. 

For processing, I exported the image from Lightroom to +Adobe Photoshop In Photoshop CC, I created a new layer via Color Effects Pro 4, part of the #nikcollection  from +Nik Photography.  I then applied  a series of luminance masks, provided by +Marie Richardson. For the final processing, I  applied an "Orton Effect" action from Jimmie McIntyre to a flattened composite.
