Doug Kaye63,427I'm still trying to catch this elusive gem. Moonrise is 7:52pm. Sunset is 8:18pm. From Hawk Hill the moon will rise behind the GG bridge and downtown San Francisco. We can't predict the fog. It's always a longshot in August. I'll get there about 7:45 after recording @110414918019803275342, so this will be a leaderless event unless someone (@102691005290181713701?) steps up. If it looks bad from Hawk Hill, we usually try Fort Baker (behind the big rock) just too see what we can get. The Park Service will probably close the gate above the roundabout by 8:30, so it's best to park below the roundabout and walk up as far as you need to get the best shot.Full Moon at the Golden Gate Bridge2012-08-02 04:30:0014

Gailen Mapes75,423Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera J-K - 17 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.2015-01-18 11:43:38106212

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.  ValidationThis 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 +2014-06-27 17:39:05116924955

Our Flag in Havana

Just back from a week in Cuba. We were the very first American's to arrive in Cuba under the new regulations and we were greeted with love for the U.S. At the end of our trip the American flag was raised in front of our hotel, the Melia Cohiba. It was probably the first time an American flag was flown in Cuba in 55 years. Very emotional for all of us.

Staff from the Department of State and other Executive Branch offices arrived at our hotel that day along with Roberta S. Jacobson, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs. It was quite a trip and an honor to be in Cuba during what will clearly be a significant change, at least for the relationship of the two countries and hopefully for the people of Cuba.

Andrea Mitchell on the Malecón

On our last night in Havana (Thursday), we decided to walk along the Malecón. At the eastern end (Castillo de San Salvador de la Punta), we came across three news crews with so much gear we thought they were shooting feature films. One was from Telemundo. Another was from NBC with Andrea Mitchell who was there to cover the U.S. Department of State's visit. (I didn't catch who the third was.) The locals took it all in stride and paid it little attention even though the crews blocked off parts a very popular hang-out location.

The Good Stuff

I made it back with a bottle of the amazing Añejo 15 Años (15-year-old) Havana Club rum. Smooth as the best Cognacs. Only 58 barrels are produced each year. It costs about $160 in Cuba. $320 in most of the rest of the world. A single shot in Havana costs at least $20. You can't buy it (or any other Cuban products) in the U.S.

As of a week ago, American's can bring home up to $100 per person of alcohol and tobacco products combined for personal use. Because +Cessna Kaye and I were together, this bottle made it within our total $100 limit.

Our Flag in Havana

Just back from a week in Cuba. We were the very first American's to arrive in Cuba under the new regulations and we were greeted with love for the U.S. At the end of our trip the American flag was raised in front of our hotel, the Melia Cohiba. It was probably the first time an American flag was flown in Cuba in 55 years. Very emotional for all of us.

Staff from the Department of State and other Executive Branch offices arrived at our hotel that day along with Roberta S. Jacobson, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs. It was quite a trip and an honor to be in Cuba during what will clearly be a significant change, at least for the relationship of the two countries and hopefully for the people of Cuba.

All About the Gear: 2014 Wrap-Up Show

It’s that time of year once again. Frederick and I look back on the gear of 2014 and then into the crystal ball for what we might expect in the year to come.

2014 was a year in which mirrorless cameras continued to gain on more-traditional DSLRs, a trend both Frederick and I see continuing into 2015. But while we’ve mostly heralded the mirrorless revolution as bringing us smaller and lighter cameras, moving forward we can expect mirrorless cameras to catching up with and even surpass DSLRs in ruggedness, autofocus speed and high frame rates. In the future, the differences between DSLRs and mirrorless cameras will be more about the strengths and weaknesses of having a mirror at all, not so much size and weight.

The other big trend in 2014 was the move towards 4K video, and again Frederick and I expect to see many more camerassup... more »

Another b&w from my tests of the #Lumix  #GM5 for an upcoming review on #AllAboutTheGear. This and some of the others I've posted were shot with the tiny new 35-100mm zoom lens. Imagine the equivalent of a 70-200mm lens in the size of a compact 50mm prime. It's not a fast lens, but you can't the compactness.

Fujifilm X30 Review -- All About the Gear

The Fujifilm X30 is a replacement for the X20. The new camera has an electronic viewfinder instead of a rangefinder and includes a lot of new features. It’s relatively inexpensive at $600 including the non-interchangeable 4x zoom lens, but it’s still too large for a pocket. So why would anyone buy this camera instead of one that either fits into a pocket (like the Sony RX100 series) or has interchangeable lenses (like a Lumix GX7)?

Perhaps because it’s because this camera is so much “fun” to shoot with, but what does that mean? First, it has some terrific film emulations as well as other features such as selective color. I found them so appealing that I actually started using the camera in JPEG-only mode rather than RAW — a first for him. Then there’s the fact that you can print directly to a tiny Fuji Instax printer forinstant photo... more »

Nikon D750 Review -- All About the Gear

Although discontinued two years ago, the Nikon D700 was one of the most-loved digital cameras ever made. Six years since the D700 was introduced, Nikon has finally come out with the 24MP D750. Is the D750 a worthy successor to the D700? +Frederick Van Johnson and I explore that question and consider where the D750 fits into Nikon’s current lineup.

One one hand the D750 inherits the excellent autofocus system of the pro-style D4s and D810. But Nikon has chosen to position the D750 as an “enthusiast” camera with controls more like the D7100. They’ve also rolled out some features that are relatively new to big-body Nikons: terrific bracketing, USB 3.0, a tiltable LCD, good 1080p/60 video and terrific image quality. #AAtG   #NikonD750 #D750

Apple 27″ iMac Retina 5K -- All About the Gear

Apple have finally announced its 27” iMac with Retina 5K Display. It took less than an hour for both +Frederick Van Johnson and I to jump on in with both feet and place our orders. Now that the wrapping paper has faded, and we’ve had a few weeks of living with our new toys — we can take a look at what we’ve bought with more objective eyes.

What does a 5K monitor mean for photographers? No surprise that it’s big and beautiful, but is it worth the extra cost? Should existing Mac users upgrade now or wait? And what about just waiting until external (non-integrated) 5K Retina displays are available? Are there any other alternatives? And for those who do make the jump, what’s the sweet-spot configuration? #AllAboutTheGear #AAtG

Birdman: A Must-See

Birdman starring Michael Keaton is already one of my all-time favorite films. I recommend it unequivocally. For photographers and cinematographers (and editors) it's quite simply required viewing.

This Variety Artisans video (http://goo.gl/u6PdH0) discusses one aspect of how the film was shot and post-processed, so if you really want to see it cold, skip this for now. You can safely watch the trailer, however. (http://goo.gl/r0B1Hu) Although it shows a lot of the film, it manages not to give you an understanding of what's really going on.

And finally, here's another how-they-did-it article for those who have seen the film or don't mind knowing some aspects of the filmmaking: http://goo.gl/Hu8RCB

This is indeed filmmaking at the very highest level: script, direction, acting, cinematography, editing, sound, music,... more »
