Alan Shapiro3,225,877I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making *the best bags in the world.*) Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries.

Gailen Mapes81,161Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 8 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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.2015-03-08 10:41:00176000

Gailen Mapes78,631Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 11 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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.2015-02-11 11:28:23173100

What do you see?
Have the orchids been caught in some  act of wrongdoing
might they be doing some jumping jacks or perhaps yoga
or are they merely yelling "over here" to some friends?

A standing ovation to all our wounded warriors (including a very special warrior named Lon I got to meet in Las Vegas)
   Words won't do justice to my meeting with +Lon W. 
I met a man who has seen things many of us cannot even begin to imagine in service to his country...my country. I met a quiet, humble, spiritual man who, as I got to speak with him, took my heart and in the course of a few seconds made it bigger (and then bigger still as I realized how important this particular meeting was to me.)
   You all know how I feel about our servicemen and women. What you can't possibly know is how these real life encounters move me profoundly. Thank you for your service, Lon. And for continuing to share what you see in our shared love of photography. Happy to have met you in real life (and had a chance to chat).

The Happiness of Hellebores.
There's magic in these early bloomers. Powerful magic. And strength.. the sheer will of pushing through brutal winters to raise their heads despite the continuing cold. I like to make wishes when I see them. (Given their many magic wands and the fact that when the winds blow, they seem to wave them in my direction and cast their spells.)

Prints of this and hundreds of other flowers available here: www.alanshapirophotography.com

Universes collided yesterday here in the UK. Somehow (hope it was intentional), The Photography Show and Comic Con were booked at the same venue on the same opening day.
   This means that each group spent only half the time at the show they intended to go to as all the photogs ran to the other hall to shoot the cos-players and all the cos-players that so love to be photographed ran to the photography hall to sneer, snarl or whatever their character is known for. Then everyone ended up outside the NEC to swap email and hashtags.

Oh clotted cream…you get my knickers in a knot. (Especially on a fresh from the oven scone with raspberry jam)
Now the only debate left to answer: whether the Devon or Cornish "Cream Tea" is best.
Discuss amongst yourselves…I am off to  #thephotographyshow  here in Birmingham where I shall hope to see at least some of you.
I know my pals from +SmugMug are here which makes me happy as I love them so. (In fact, right now am imagining them covered in clotted cream and jam as a change of pace from their Superhero facepaint. And now I am stopping myself. Sorry. Off to the show.)

The Joy of Sax
Anyone who has been to Freemont Street in Las Vegas has seen Carl Ferris play. And play. And play. Most times I cant pick up my camera as I'm lost in the experience. This time was no different but managed to take a pic that while poorly composed seemed to capture the joy of Carl's playing

It is official: I can now "see" in black and white. Was wandering the Orchid Show at the NY Botanical Gardens yesterday and realized I would look at a particular flower and see it in monochrome while others I would see in full color. Either that or...or...oh jeez...nooooooo!
Water Lily basking in the moonlight.

I see brilliance and warmth
creativity and nurturing
joy and caring.
I see a phenomenal teacher, mentor, artist and human being filled with compassion, inspiration and unbridled enthusiasm for helping people discover what is possible when they look into their hearts (occasionally staring down and/or harnessing their own fears) and then look out in to the world to let their creative spirit soar.
I see artistry and craft,
enthusiasm and vulnerability (in the best and most vital meaning of the word).
I finally got to "see"+Robin Griggs Wood in real life and wanted to share what I saw (more like felt) with you all.
I consider Robin to be a friend and kindred spirit but the reality is that Robin represents way more than that to me. Her willingness to teach and her worldview are a true inspiration to me. This was more than proven out as I got to know her in person.... more »

Got to hang out with some awesome folks this weekend. One of the surprises was +Christina Lihani's husband +Brian Lihani who made me smile every time I saw him. Every single time. Alright...except once...and that's when I nearly peed myself. Way to go Brian. Now grab Christina and give each other a huge hug.

Seeking strength. Finding Bob.

Sometimes I let my street subjects be. Sometimes I ask them to do things (or think about things and then "show me") There's rarely a set routine except for some icebreakers. In this case, I asked Bob to show me strength and resolve. Ahh, the cosmic irony.

Stay inspired. And when in doubt, flex and clench.

I rarely post two images from a shoot. (In fact, not sure I've ever done it) As I watched various shooters pose Signe, I couldn't help but want to try something a little different and have often asked people to scream for me. So I did and Signe being the wonderful model that she is complied despite the fact that this image ended up on a large monitor overhead. What do you think?

P.S. Adding a large octa bank to my wishlist. The light quality is incredible. Huge thanks to +Tony Corbell for being such an amazing teacher (and friend)

This is Sam. He is staying in my hotel in Vegas while I'm here for #wppi2015 . He flew bombers in Viet Nam. Then, ran Air Traffic Control after his 20 years of Air Force service. He told me stories that gave me chills (including life in the Control Tower during 9/11) and jokes that doubled me over. Sending him this (among others) as my thank you.

No glitz nor glamour. No endless buffets. No waiting for the superstar show of the moment filled with pyrotechnics and showgirls. While the Vegas strip glitters and sparkles, there are those among us (far too many) who have lost the stars in their eyes.

Don't spare change. Make change.

What if the flying monkeys were the protagonists of the story?
But now, the witches were wicked developers (and there were no good ones), the tin men wielded chainsaws and land clearers, the munchkins hauled off the felled trees and Dorothy was lighting up scarecrow from her luxury yacht?
Where is the wizard come to make things right?
And why are there no rainbows anymore?
