Gailen Mapes66,045Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  W-Z - 13 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 #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 +2014-07-13 11:58:3981406CC G+

Seth Burgess18,031My mp-e 65mm user's circleIt's grown to over 50 people, so probably time to share this again.  These are G+ people that own and use Canon's mp-e 65mm lens that starts at 1:1 and is capable of up to 5:1 magnification.  Generally if you're going to drop US$1000 on a manual can't-actually-focus macro lens, you know your way around a macro reasonably well, and I think the people included in this circle prove the point.  Some very skilled photographers here!If you own this glass and want to be added please do let me know.  If you're in it and don't want to be included, also let me know.2014-06-10 15:09:56522707CC G+

If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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 Map2014-01-13 11:30:1980507CC G+

I've made a concerted effort to plant only natives in the garden over recent years as they're drought tolerant and I was hoping they'd attract more native species to the garden. 
While they survive well and attract plenty of Bees they don't produce the prettiest flowers and the only birds I seem to get around are those pesky Noisy Miners!
I thought I'd plant some Osteospermum's again as I've always liked their flowers and the Bees still seem to like them too so it gives me something to shoot right in my own yard.
This was shot with my Nikon D5100, Nikkor 40mm macro, natural light.
It was a bright sunny day so I hold one of those thin plastic cutting boards in front of the sunlight to diffuse it.

Another Ostoespermum shot. 
This was with the Mp-e, so it has a very limited DOF. 
I'm looking forward to trying some stacking with these soon for something new and to try some new compositions with depth of field throughout the whole frame.

I was sniffing around outside trying to find a subject worth testing my new diffusers on but about the only living critter I could find was this Ant! It  did have some cool colouration to it though.

I decided to shoot this one farther back to include more of the great colouration and textures in the rocks surrounding this headland. 
Even the bird shit adds that extra element. :)

A Lacewing Larvae presumably eating some pollen?
This one's relatively "clean" as they can often be seen with large piles of refuse on their backs (sometimes even containing  the discarded skins of leafhoppers!) which they use as protection \ camo I believe.

Just fluffing around with some HDR tonight on an old 4WD we recently procured to beat around down the coast here. 
I did about 5 different versions all of which either myself or my consultation panel (wife, daughter and sometimes even dog) wasn't sure about one aspect or another until I combined two of them together to come up with this compromise.
That's one of the things I love about HDR is the variety of processing options you can take in so many directions from the real to surreal and sometimes bloody horrible! :)

I was at my favorite seaside haunt over the weekend again and managed to snap a few long exposure shots on this overcast evening. 
I was hoping to get better sunset golden lighting but there were too many clouds which at least made for a dramatic sky. 
This was shot with a Nikon D7000, Sigma 10mm-20mm @20mm, 30 seconds at f/10 with a B&W 10 stop ND filter in front. 
I then combine 5 TIFF"s at 1ev variance through Photomatix Pro to produce a semi HDR effect and finish off in Photoshop Elements with Nik plugins. 
Any constructive comments or suggestions appreciated!

The hunter becomes the hunted
This was a little troubling to be confronted with as they are my two favorite families of Spiders and I felt for the loser here although of course it's all part of nature taking it's course.

While it's still Winter here and there are few Bugs around to shoot I am spending quite a bit of time modifying \ improving my kit in readiness for next season so I can hopefully take my images to the next level. 
I've been wanting to get better diffusion on my standard macro lenses so bit the bullet and invested in a Gary Fong pop up "Lightsphere" http://www.garyfongestore.com/featured-products/lightsphere-collapsible-speed-mount.html
It has great reviews as a portrait diffuser so I was itching to see how it works on Bugs!
From my initial testing it seems like it will be great for just what I want to use it for as well as giving me better results for when I dabble in portrait stuff. 
I can only hope that's the case as $110AUD for a couple of bits of plastic and rubber is pretty rich. :)

It's wet, cold, and miserable here in South Australia at the moment so I've been suffering withdrawal symptoms for while now and missing my Bugs. 
The only option I could come up with today was to have a play around with some Tulips my wife had on the dinner table so I experimented with a few different compositions and lighting set-ups until I came up with this!
Roll on Spring!

Well I've finally gotten around to putting together a website for my work using the excellent facilities at Smugmug.
It’s simple but elegant (just like me) and has all the sales functionality which will probably never get used!
If everyone who has me circled went there and bought 5 of everything that would be great. 
I could retire and spend the rest of my time fluffing around pretending to be an “artist” 
Although this would be a severe blow to the world of baking I would enjoy it more, so thank you all in advance. ;)

Thanks to +Deb Yarrow for the help with what service to use etc too. :)

I learnt a lot again over the weekend while trying some more long exposure shots down on Lower Yorkes Peninsula. 
Between waiting for the right time of day, finding a decent composition, figuring out the exposure time required, trying to get the right bits in focus, and having all the camera settings correct I managed to bugger up at least one of the variables on every shot!
I reckon playing golf was easier!
A few came out ok and I came away with a lot of learning's for next time I have another go anyway and it was a lot of fun.
This was shot with a Nikon D7000, Sigma 10mm-20mm@10mm, 35sec exposure at f/11 with a 6 stop ND filter.

I've made a concerted effort to plant only natives in the garden over recent years as they're drought tolerant and I was hoping they'd attract more native species to the garden. 
While they survive well and attract plenty of Bees they don't produce the prettiest flowers and the only birds I seem to get around are those pesky Noisy Miners!
I thought I'd plant some Osteospermum's again as I've always liked their flowers and the Bees still seem to like them too so it gives me something to shoot right in my own yard.
This was shot with my Nikon D5100, Nikkor 40mm macro, natural light.
It was a bright sunny day so I hold one of those thin plastic cutting boards in front of the sunlight to diffuse it.

I was digging through my old shots as I normally just cleaning things up at the end of the warmer months here.
While doing so I was having a good chuckle at how bad much of the older stuff was thus deleting lots of it, but there were a few which on reviewing still stood up pretty well. 
This was one of them, shot back in Jan '12 with my first DSLR the Nikon D3100, and a  Nikkor 60mm micro lens. 
I enjoy the cooler months as it gives me time to sort things out, reflect on where I'm going and what I want to do, and  learn more about shooting without the constant feeling I should be out doing it!

So happy with the reviews I got this week, THANK YOU and keep 'em coming!! :-) 

"I found myself drawn in by the charismatic main character, clever plot and vivid scene descriptions" -- Amazon review 

"It is a great debut novel and has a satisfying ending. The descriptions are vivid and a great sense of time and place are created." -- the Kindle Book Review 

"This is a page-turner of a detective story with a memorable lead character. I could not put it down until the last page was done. Looking forward to the next Track Presius adventure." -- Amazon review

The only waterfalls I know of near metropolitan Adelaide, this is the 1st of three at Morialta Falls. 
This is actually a 30sec exposure with a 10 stop ND filter but there was so little water coming down the effect is mostly lost but I liked the colour and textures in the rocks so decided to post anyway. 
I'll go back when we've had some good winter rains for a better shot soon.

Birds vs Bugs
I've been trying to shoot a few Birds lately after purchasing a 70-300mm lens for my Canon 7D.
All I can say is damn, I knew Birds were hard but I have even more respect for people who shoot them well after my last few outings!
I reckon they're even harder than Bugs. Once you have the technical aspects down and your gear set up for Bugs they're relatively easy to shoot, but Birds........the little buggers never sit still! Haha. 
Good fun though, and I' hope to improve a lot as I progress. 
No ID on this litte fella yet, was shot in our Morialta Falls Conservation park.

There was some epic cloud around the day I shot this at Semaphore jetty here on our metro coast. 
It wasn't the best time of day and there were a few pesky humans around, but I felt the water movement and clouds made it a worthwhile effort.

I had a day out at our Morialta Falls here today for a good bit of exercise and to try out my new Canon  EF 70-300mm 70-300 f/4/F4-5.6 IS USM lens hopefully on a few birds, but I couldn't resist when I came upon one of these in the wild. 

It's always great to see them in their natural environment instead of being passed around for photo ops among tourists in theme parks!

I noticed they were very brown in coloration too compared to others I've seen.

Some quick research tells me this is apparently common in more Southern individuals, although some scientists believe there may possibly be a separate sub species. (one has to include the violent, man eating, sharp fanged, carnivorous "drop-Bears" as well of course. :)

I find Bees challenging to shoot but they always look "pretty" to me and are also anatomically interesting. 
I'm thinking about specialising in them to a certain extent next year to compile a good catalog of shots. 
Who knows, there may be a "Sexybee's" theme in the future? ;)

Run For The Clouds
I was fishing \ shooting down Lower Yorkes Peninsula last weekend. The weather was very overcast with dramatic storm clouds covering the entire sky. 
"Great" I thought, perfect conditions for both pastimes, so my plan was to fish the early morning then shoot in the arvo. 
After fishing I was driving back to West Cape Lighthouse, one of my favorite scenic lookouts and I noticed a lone blue line appearing in the distance which confused me for a second as it looked quite surreal until I realised the entire cloud front was disappearing as it moved toward me!
I was very disappointed I wasn't going to be able to shoot with such great clouds around for the rest of the arvo as they would have added a dramatic element to any shots, but managed to race up to the lighthouse in time to capture the main cloud bank moving off in the distance with some nicew... more »
