Gailen Mapes75,281Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-14 11:53:10204000

Gailen Mapes69,130Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-14 10:53:56206001

Question for the pro photographers out there: I got a friend who asked me what are the average day rate fees (range) that photogs get for doing corporate photography? I have no idea, since it's not my cup of tea, so I said I'd ask...  Any ideas or help giving a ballpark  for low, mid, or upper ranges?

My Moderator's Choice goes to this shot by +Scott McGee for this shot of the Angels Landing Trail. This one is on my to-do list, and I just love this view of the trail snaking off into the valley. Makes me wanna hop in my truck and head there.  

The winding switchbacks on the trail to Angels Landing, Zion National Park, UT.

The pattern of the steep and winding path struck us as a curious thing. From one view, it looks like a vertical and imposing wall. In this view, you can see the zig-zag path coming up from the Zion Valley floor.

This photo is on my website at:

Curious what people think about this image? This was another 'Runner-up' for my Favorites of 2014 collection, & probably my most internally-debated. I still can't say why it didn't make my final cut. Maybe it's too dark? Editing is such a tough process. Any thoughts?

Question for computer users: If you use an external USB 2.0 or 3.0 passport HD, do you leave them plugged in all the time for constant access / back-up, or do you only plug (& play) as needed?

I had to deal with this issue when making my Greetings from California book. Libraries at Berkeley,  Denver,  and so many others make good money licensing historical images out of their collections using this 'our effort' argument. 

But what really pisses me off is places like Getty licensing (for profit) Hubble and NASA images which are clearly public domain, and NASA has the hi res files.

One of the coolest spots on the northernmost tip of the island is the blowhole at Nakalele Point, Maui, Hawail.

Let me know if you enjoy this image. It was in the running for my Favorites of 2014, but alas, it wound up on the virtual cutting room floor.

Let me know if you enjoy this image. It was in the running for my Favorites of 2014, but alas, it wound up on the virtual cutting room floor.

Day one with my new Windows 8.1 laptop. Within the first few hours of use I had already googled "Downgrade to Windows 7 pro."

Curious what people think about this image? This was another 'Runner-up' for my Favorites of 2014 collection, & probably my most internally-debated. I still can't say why it didn't make my final cut. Maybe it's too dark? Editing is such a tough process. Any thoughts?

A belated Moderator's Choice for last week goes out to this great share by +TJ Thorne .  love the cool serene mood of this image, yet tainted with a slight hint of foreboding. And when you read TJ's original post, you'll see that is a perfect descriptive fit for this image. I remember photographing this tree back in 1992.

•Guardian•

This is the second image from my two week long artist-in-residency appointment at Crater Lake National Park in October of 2014. 

The whitebark pines, such that you see in the photo, are one of the more astounding features of the park. Gnarled, twisted masses of wood centuries old. They've withstood weather extremes, intense winds, storms, droughts, you name it. The trees have stood strong and are some of the only species of pine that can survive the sub-alpine, rocky volcanic soil environment that is their home.

But they're dying. And not just a few here.. a few there. They're dying by the acre. In fact.. more than half of the whitebark pines in Crater Lake National Park are either dead or in the process of dying due to infestation by western pine beetles. The beetles have always been around, generally thriving in lower elevation forests, which are much more resistant to the infestations. However, with warmer and shorter winters, the beetles have been moving to higher elevations and persisting through the winter season. They attack these pines, which do not have the ability to defend themselves. In addition, the hotter, longer, and drier summers deprive these trees of the sap producing water they need to help their defense. It's one of the most 'in your face' effects of climate change within the park.

I can't help but think about this tree's future. It's an iconic tree in the park and one of my favorite features, and here it is, finally succombing to the environment that we have given it. These trees provide food, shelter, and survival for numerous other species, yet we have failed it's own survival. How much the park will change in the long-term by the death of these trees is still an unknown, but it will certainly continue to change the face of the park.

Smoke plume over burning sugar cane field as seen from Haleakala National Park, Maui, Hawaii

Another of my favorite images from last year that didn't make my year-end round up. A little too 'dirty', don't you think? While not really a postcard scenic shot, I hope it still works as an editorial travel shot.

Storm clouds roll across the Sierra at sunrise, Toiyabe National Forest. Alpine County, California

What was one of your scariest photographic moments in 2014? 

Mine was being awoken at 3am to a major thunderstorm after falling asleep under cloudless skies. The fact that we were above tree line on an exposed mountain ridge definitely made for some hair-raising moments. Literally. I got this shot in the morning as tropical storm Norbert rolled across the Sierra.

There are so many people who are involved with History, so it should be notable when you meet one. As beautiful as this morning was, I'll always remember this location as the spot where I met an Islander who was in the US Navy, and served aboard the Glomar Explorer.
*Morning light on clouds over surfers along the North Shore of Maui, Hawaii *

For those who don't know, the Glomar Explorer was a joint cover story btwn the Navy & Howard Hughes who built the ship as an 'exploration' vessel, when in fact it's real mission was to secretly pull up a sunken Russian submarine from the depths of the ocean. For many years, the Glomar Explorer was anchored just a few miles from my house, and I spent many days sturgeon fishing just a few hundred yards off her stern.

Why don't we hear the word 'Over-processed' w/ movies? My friend has been telling me about how much he's been learning about color grading for video. But unlike photography, we never really think about all the post-processing done on video. But as soon as we see an over-cooked HDR photo, many photographers will instantly say it looks over-processed. But check out this video and see just how much difference good color grading makes for video. So just like photography, it's not how much you do it, it's how well you do it.

Taken this last fall, it's really nice thinking about how much snow must now be covering the ground here at over 11,000' el.

I hope you enjoy this photo, & thanks for looking.  :)

The beautiful Glen Alpine Falls in the South Lake Tahoe Basin, California.

Many photographers are familiar with the better known Eagle Falls above Emerald Bay. However, this easily accessible location is mentioned in my book, "Photographing California; v.1-North" and is part of a collection of images recently added to my  Image Archive.

I hope you enjoy this image, and thanks for looking.  :)

COMMUNITY GUIDELINES - California and Western US Landscapes Community  Please read before posting.

This should give you a good idea of what we are about... and what we are not about:

"You are a photographer living in, visiting, and photographing the great variety of NATURAL places and NATURAL LANDSCAPES famously located in the American West, the Pacific Northwest, and the Southwest. This community is dedicated to sharing YOUR photographs and information related to the NATURAL LANDSCAPE of this fantastic region which is internationally recognized for its rugged and wild terrain."

Please respect this community's focus on STILL PHOTOGRAPHY of the NATURAL LANDSCAPE of CALIFORNIA and the WESTERN UNITED STATES. This is NOT a place to share photographs from other locations, cityscapes and architecture, general travel photography, tourist attractions, sports photography, flower and plant photographs, animal photos, pictures of your family, and similar subjects that are not our focus. Read our community guidelines to find our more. Thanks!"

1. The focus is on photographs and not other media. Photographs? Yes. Video? No. Paintings? No. Animated GIFs and similar? No. They will be deleted.

2. The geographical area is "California and the Western US." See the forum list on the left side of the page for a list of US states included in this definition. (Material focused on other areas will be deleted.)
3. Please caption your photographs. While we do not ask for nor desire detailed location information, at least include some short description as appropriate

4. The focus is "natural landscape. Parsing boundaries between OK and not OK can be difficult, but if important elements of your photograph are not "natural landscape" elements, you are encouraged to post it in some other community. Things that are not natural landscape include: roads, family pictures, pets, wildlife, flowers and macro, cityscapes, urban areas, sports and sports equipment, buildings, bridges, vehicles, fashion, models, etc. Photographs that do not fit our focus will be deleted.

5. Photographs must be posted into the appropriate categories within the community. See the list when you post. Photographs posted incorrectly will be deleted. You are welcome to repost them in the appropriate forums.

6. Spam is not tolerated. Spamming messages will be deleted immediately and the posters banned without comment or warning. (Posts of photographs that appear to be primarily an excuse to post links to one's business may be regarded as spam by the moderators and removed.)

7. Post single photographs and do not post albums. Album posts are subject to deletion by moderators.

8. Post only your own photographs. Do not repost photographs by other photographers. You may invite them to join us and share their photographs directly in this community. Re-shares will be deleted. Blatant re-shares of the images of others without credit and explicit permission will result in an immediate ban from the community.

9. Those posting on Google Plus under commercial identities (i.e. - company names) must always include a credit to the Google Plus member photographer whose photographs appear in their post, and the credit must include the link to the photographer's Google Plus profile page. (You create this by typing the "+" symbol before their Google Plus name.) Company posts that do not include this will be deleted.  NOTE: See additional guidelines for commercial postings below.

10. Do not post links to your photographs hosted on outside servers in place of sharing photographs themselves. You must post shares of your photograph that is on Google Plus. (There are many reasons for this requirement, and we'll stick to our guns on this one.) It is OK to post a link to additional information in the text that accompanies your photograph.

11. We are not fond of posts that are largely links and hashtags. In addition to being poor form, they trigger Google Plus's automatic spam detection and may be flagged and held by the Google Plus system.

12. Do not flood the community with a huge set of sequential posts. In general, more than 2 or 3 at a time will be too many. Save some of your good stuff for tomorrow... and the next day.

13. The moderators will respond to violations of the guidelines. The response may be a gentle reminder (in many cases), deletion of the post, or in the case of spam or with repeat violators of any of the guidelines they may ban the violate without notice.

14. The community guidelines are subject to modification at any time.

Commercial and marketing posts on the California & Western States Landscapes Community

Moderators for this group aim to keep out all SPAM posts and messages out of this community.

We are also clear and united in our desire to keep any marketing or sales related posts to an absolute minimum.  We don’t want our membership to be seen as a marketplace to be targeted.

However, we recognize there may well be some circumstances when something with a business-related aspect will have some direct relevance or potential interest to members of our community.  So here are the guidelines for commercial related content being posted or shared in our community:

Your very first post(s) to our community group should not be commercially-centric.  

Favoritism will be shown to active community members and participants. Unless approved by a moderator, you shouldn’t post any commercial items within 30 days of your first post to the group.

 “Soft sell,” not “Hard sell.”

Follow the 80 - 20 Rule.   80% of your posts to the community should be 100% non-commercial, although it is OK to include a general link to your photography web site home page or portfolio as part of your description.

If you occasionally (see above 80-20 rule) want to reference something like a workshop, presentation, book, e-book, app, print sales, or anything – the soft sell approach should be followed, i.e. 80% of a post should be about a particular photo, or some other relevant aspect to our community first and foremost, followed by 20% marketing. Again, Community Relevance is primary, marketing is secondary. Making 80% of your post primarily a workshop announcement with a small follow-up footnote about the photo is not considered appropriate and will most-likely get removed by a moderator. Again, Favoritism will be shown to active community members and participants. 

The Marketing Mottos for our community:

“Don’t come knocking on our door for the first time trying to sell us something.”

If you’re an active member of the community and do have something of a commercial nature that you’d like to share: “For Marketing: Keep it light, and keep it few and far between.” Anything more than two out of any ten posts will likely raise a flag with the Moderators. (Also refer back to note # 12 above.)

If you’re in doubt, feel free to contact a Moderator and ask them first.

Moderators, 

+Gary Crabbe +Richard Wong +G Dan Mitchell

Sunbeam through storm clouds, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Isn't light a wonderful thing?   - So, how tiny is the visible light portion of the entire  electromagnetic spectrum?

Your science fact for the day: Your camera records, and your eyes see just the visible light portion of the entire electromagnetic spectrum, which includes x-rays, gamma-rays, infrared, microwaves, etc. (The electromagnetic force is one of the four fundamental forces at work in the universe, along with gravity, and the strong and week nuclear forces.) 

Answer: If the entire electromagnetic force was a tape measure stretched around the world, visible light would occupy about a half inch. In other words, visible light is only available to be seen or recorded along approximately one-billionth of the total electromagnetic spectrum.

My Moderator's Choice image for last week was this captivating share by +Hank Christensen. I love the very definitive tones in this shot, which looks almost more like the surface of ocean waves than desert floor. Just goes to show you shouldn't be too quick to hit the delete button on some of your shots.  :)

Blue shadows of twilight dance over the dunes of Death Valley National Park.

Recently I uncovered a couple of unprocessed photographs in my collection that I took in Death Valley National Park several years ago. These were sitting in my “reject” pile, but upon a second look, I thought each photo had its own merit. When I looked at these two images a little more closely, I began to feel a very different mood with each.

What struck me with the first photo were the vibrant blue hues that emerged after sunset. Shot in deep twilight, the evening sky was reflected off the light tan sand, creating an amazing blue glow throughout the dune field. In order to accentuate this glow, I increased the contrast of the image overall, and increased the clarity. High contrast helped show off the intricate texture of the foreground dune, showing sharpness in each ripple of sand. Contrast was increased two ways: the first was to set the white and black point of the image. While I didn’t use the extreme ends of the histogram, I got pretty close.
The second was to add a contrast s-curve to the image. All adjustments were done in Adobe Lightroom. I kept the white balance pretty close to what the camera chose, increasing it slightly. This gave me a white balance of just over 6000 Kelvins – I was amazed at how blue it still was even after using such a warm color temperature.

The second photo and remainder of the article is at http://blog.hankchristensen.com/2014/12/processing-for-moods/
