Mykal Hall373,635+Jay Patel and +Varina Patel are here in Australia for a workshop in Port Stephens hosted by +Brent Mail on the 3-5 Jan 2014. I have twisted their arms to do a photowalk here in +Sydney on the 11 January 2014.  So lets show our guest the welcome the Sydney Photo Community has to offer. We will meet on the steps in front of the Sydney Opera House at 6.30pm and slowly make our way to Hickson Rd Reserve for sunset and then to the end point at Observatory Hill by 9pm. I have plotted a few photo opportunity locations along the route as well as public toilets that I know of.https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zw_eAURDDMag.kLJfMBZmQ50o There are plenty of food outlets to grab a quick bite to eat at Circular Quay for the journey. I have walked the route in 1hr 40mins at a leisurely pace but you may want to stay at one location longer if you desire. That will be fine as long as we all get together at the start to greet Jay and Varina and then at the end point to say our goodbyes. Then afterwards if you still feel in the mood to chat over a drink we will be heading to The Hero of Waterloo (if there is only a small group) or the Harbour View Hotel (if there are more than the Hero can fit).I recommend catching public transport to Circular Quay or Town Hall but if you drive in there are a few parking stations within a short walk to the Opera House. I suggest downloading the "Cheap Parking App" from the Google playstore or iTunes. This will give you pricing options from closest or cheapest and links to get to them.I hope everyone has a great time during the walk socialising and remember you can approach Jay, Varina and myself at anytime to ask any questions.Please share this with anyone you may know who would want to join us. :))) Looking forward to see you all and don't forget the hash tag #PatelSydneyPhotowalk+Jay and Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk2014-01-11 18:30:00142G+

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 +2014-08-09 11:07:541394111CC G+

Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#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.  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 17:39:05116935056CC G+
Hugh Ferguson10,217A starter circle for those new to G+ I just realised its a year since I joined G+. When I started I was lucky enough to come across a really useful circle share to help me on my way. As I have yet to share a circle of my own I will try and give something back, in the hope it helps those in a similar position. I am not posting this for +1's, shares or to gain new followers - so please do not feel obliged to share, +1 or follow - there are plenty of those type of circle shares around if that's what you want The circle below is just a selection of the 3000 or so I follow. All are excellent and active contributors to G+. It's quite Landscape biased (too many great photographers to pick out one or two), but there are examples of other genres and resources for example:Great photographers who work tirelessly through communities and pages, producing great interaction, such as +Margaret Tompkins +Kevin Rowe +Rinus Bakker and +Nancy Dempsey .... wonderful creative artists like +Heidi Anne Morris +Lotus Carroll +Bryan Peterson .....street photographers such as +Thomas Leuthard +Angelica Guckes ......the exquisite beauty of flowers and Macro by +Rosie Nixon +Silke Tüxen ......great teachers such as +Nicole S.

Gailen Mapes64,924Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 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 Mapes2014-06-09 10:25:36148439CC G+

If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).To connect with me - Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)FRIEND FILERIf you need more shared circles, check out the ones posted by +Friend Filer.

Magnificent Milford Sound, New Zealand
BEST VIEWED LARGE

As you can see from the sky we got two picture perfect days in Milford Sound on the South Island. This place is difficult to photograph in fall as due to extreme dynamic range, but when sky lights up like this you have to take few shots. ;)

How was this image created?
As you may have guessed, this is a manual blended image created out of three separate shots. The manual blending was accomplished using our iHDR workflow to retain the natural look of the image.  I could not use any filters because it would darken the top of the mountains too much case a loss of all the details.

Self Portrait on the Beach

...and a few simple tips for taking shadow portraits.

This is one of my favorite places in the whole world - the black sand beach at Jökulsárlón in Iceland. When I noticed my tiny reflection on the rock, I decided this was the perfect place for a self portrait. So, I set up my tripod with my camera on it, stood so that my legs lined up with the shadow of my tripod legs and the shadow of my camera was hidden by the shadow of my body. Then, I set a two second timer, released the shutter, and threw my hands into the air. It was an incredibly easy shot - and a really fun and different self portrait. :)

Tips for taking shadow portraits:

1. Look for a simple composition, so that your shadow doesn't get lost in a cluttered scene.

2. Use a tripod to hold your camera so that your arms are free for a more interesting pose. A 2-second timer will give you time to pose.

3. Hide the shadow of the tripod in your own shadow. Nobody will even know it was there!___ #JPPhotoOftheDay  by +Varina Patel

Racetrack, Death Valley, California

Of all the years that I have been to Death Valley, I have visited this location only once (conditions prevented me from going there other times), but the light show we got that day was nothing short of fantastic. This is a very unique place that should be on every landscape photographers bucket list. ;)

What happens when you are starting out in landscape photography?

You have just got your first camera and spend few thousand dollars to photograph the exotic location that was on their bucket list...AND

a) You are a natural born pro and start teaching workshop the same week you return putting all of us working photographers out of business. 
b) You come back and think you need to upgrade your equipment to the latest and greatest. After all the only thing that is holding you back is your equipment. 
c) You are convinced that need more APPs to help you take better photos....and an iPad mount for your tripod. 
d) You realize that you dont know the first thing about photography...and you spend some time and money trying to learn.
e) You friends and family think that your photos are amazing...and you should quit your day job. But in reality your photos just overex... more »

f) All of the above - Really? Is that even possible? 

After my first trip d) and e) where very much true.  And this is what I did next: Learn to Shoot

The Rolling Hills of Willunga, South Australia

The beautiful hills above Willunga come alive with colour during and just after the winter months. The rolling pastures make for some spectacular countryside views, especially around sunset when the golden light saturates the landscape. with the fresh air and gorgeous surroundings, I could spend many days exploring this countryside.

To get this photograph, I had to 4WD up a steep countryside track, climb through a barbed wire fence, and trek down the side of a hill to get the particular perspective I was after. While I love this particular spot, this scene is by no means unique in this area. Due to the extreme lighting conditions (shooting directly into the sun), I had to bracket several different exposures and combine them later on.

How to get started in Landscape Photography

When I first headed out west to conquer the landscape photography world there were only few gizmos available. Today there are gazillion choices... from fancy APPs to custom firmware updates for your camera. 

So how is one to decided what is absolutely essential to get started in Landscape Photography? Here is bare minimum you will need. And the less gizmos you have the better off you will be until you take the next step of learning to shoot.

This was the site of our last sunset in Anna Bay, Australia before we headed out to Sydney for a photowalk. We photographed the sunset and watched the Dolhins playing in the water....Nice place to call office for 2 weeks. 

How was this image created?
I did not use a GND Filter? Guess why? Instead I bracketed the shots and combined them together using out iHDR workflow (manual blending workflow). The focus was set using hyper-focal distance principles so that everything in the frame is sharply in focus.

What does it take to get a Great Landscape Photo?
A bit of luck? What else?

...The answer to this depends upon number of things. One of those things is what stage of photography you are on. Check out what happened to me when I attempted to capture the waterfalls for the first time.

Hilo, Big Island, Hawaii (HI)
BEST VIEWED LARGE

Wake up in the morning...take a morning stroll to the neighbourhood park and you are ready to shoot!! What is there not to like about Hawaii. We have a workshop coming up in Hawaii with none other than Colby Brown and Varina Patel. Here is more info:

http://photographybyvarina.com/workshops/oct-2014-workshop-big-island-hawaii

How was this photograph created?
This is a manually blended shot created using three different bracketed images. Because the wind was absent that morning we were able to get away with long shutter speed to create a natural looking image without ghosting. 

This is just a small glimpse of what you will be able to learn and practice on our upcoming workshop.

Magnificent Havasu Falls, Arizona

This photo was taken on my first visit to Havasu Falls on 2006. We timed the trip perfectly..there was almost no one in the campground and the spring was in full bloom. It rained and snowed on us while we were camped in the canyon and this provided soft light to photograph these falls. 

How was this image created?
This was a simple shot to take due to heavy overcast skies. I used a circular polarizer to bring out the colors in the scene and used a long shutter speed to render the water smooth. The biggest challenge was to keep the mist of my lens.

Storm over Peyto Lake, Banff, Canada
BEST VIEWED LARGE

Just as we were finishing our talk with the Shade Tree Film last year a storm approached from the North. We had to quickly pick up our gear and hurry out of there as we could hear the distant thunder. But not before we took a few shots to capture the lake in dramatic light. 

How was this image created?
This is a single exposure shot that was processed 3 times to bring out the details in all areas of the image. The clouds in the upper right corner were over exposed while the deep shadows on the mountains were under exposed. I took this shot just before the sun was covered up by the clouds. This sunlight created rich colors against the dark stormy horizon.

Where be the Cannibals? Cannibal Bay, New Zealand
BEST VIEWED LARGE

Awesome locations and awesome sunrises dont happen very often, but when they do this is what it looks like. This was perhaps one of our best morning outing in New Zealand. And to top this off few sea lions showed up after the sunrise was done. 

How was this image created?
I took this shot as we were filming a lesson in how to bracket your images using histograms. So, yes this image was created using three bracketed shots and then later combined to form a natural looking image using our manual blending workflow (using Photoshop Layers & Masks). The camera was placed close to the ground to highlight the subtle textures in the sand.

#JPPhotoOfTheDay by +Sean Bagshaw

Plitvice Waterfalls Panorama. Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is a natural wonder I have wanted to experience for many years. It's also wildly popular in the summer months so crowds can be a challenge for photography. I was additionally challenged by heavy thunderstorms. The best time to photograph is most likely early in the morning before the crowds arrive and the boardwalks begin vibrating constantly. I tried to head out at 6:00 AM the one morning I was there but the sky let loose with a downpour that trapped me in the car for an hour. The afternoon before we were caught in a thunderstorm of biblical proportions during our afternoon hike as well. I hunkered in my rain jacket for an hour waiting for it to clear. When it did stop raining there was some great light and mist and I found myself alone, the throngs having left to run for cover. It was during this quiet moment that I was able to take this image. I hope to return in the fall or winter one day soon. There is so much more here to explore.

Four image panorama, landscape orientation. Sony NEX-7, E 16-35mm F2.5-5.6 OSS lens, B+W polarizer, 1/3 second at f/14 and ISO 100. 37mm focal length (full frame equivalent).___#JPPhotoOfTheDay by +Sean Bagshaw

#Macro Photography by +Varina Patel

____________

Post-apocalyptic Cityscape

... and a couple of tips for Macro Photography on Ice.

I took this shot in New Zealand while hanging out with +Trey Ratcliff's workshop group. It was a freezing cold morning, and the frost covered everything. To me, this looks like a post-apocalyptic cityscape... the buildings toppling one after another. ;)

I used my 180mm macro lens to get in close - and then closer - until those tiny ice crystals seemed to fill the frame. I wanted an incredibly narrow depth of field. Just a few millimeters of focus to show off that "skyline", while blurring the ice crystals in front and behind.

1. Macro shots are a heck of a lot easier with the help of a tripod and a good ball head. If your ball head slips, it's going to drive you crazy... tiny subjects will disappear from your frame with even a small shift. Make sure your ball head is nice and tight, and take the time to adjust your composition until it's exactly where you want it. And then, be careful not to bump that tripod. ;)

2. Be sure your focus is exactly where you want it. I use the live view setting on my camera to get a good look at my subject - and then I zoom in to 5 or 10x while focusing. I use auto focus if I can, but there are times when manual focus works best. If the camera is "hunting" for your subject, switch to manual.___#Macro Photography by +Varina Patel

A Grand View, Mt. Moran, Grand Tetons National Park
BEST VIEWED LARGE

While on a adventure trip with my daughter we ran into this fantastic scene. It had rained all morning while we were taking our horses up the top of a mountain. On the way down we saw the clouds breaking up and by the time we were on our way to lunch at the Jackson lodge, Mt. Moran was peaking through the clouds.

How was this image created?
My challenge was to take this shot using a handled camera, no filters, no tripods and special equipment...just a simple #FujiXE2 mirrorless camera with a kit lens. I used DR400 Mode on the Fuji and exposed the image to the right. I was later able to process the RAW images into 3 separate shots (one for the sky, one for the lake and one for the ground) and combine them using Photoshop Layers & Mask to create this natural looking finished product. more »

This is my good side, Cannibal Bay, New Zealand

Morning on Cannibal bay was just spectacular. We were filming a lesson on Histogram and Bracketing as the sky put on a spectacular show for us. And to top it off...this little guy showed up with three of his friend and all of them posed for us while we took their portraits. There is nothing like coming face to face with these spectacular creatures in the wild. 

How was this image created?
This is very simple shot to expose for as the entire scene was lit up by soft even morning light. The only thing I had to do was find a good composition without distractions....and this all depended on my friend over here co-operating....and he did just that..

Magnificent Milford Sound, New Zealand
BEST VIEWED LARGE

As you can see from the sky we got two picture perfect days in Milford Sound on the South Island. This place is difficult to photograph in fall as due to extreme dynamic range, but when sky lights up like this you have to take few shots. ;)

How was this image created?
As you may have guessed, this is a manual blended image created out of three separate shots. The manual blending was accomplished using our iHDR workflow to retain the natural look of the image.  I could not use any filters because it would darken the top of the mountains too much case a loss of all the details.

Brand New

Look who we discovered in our little magnolia tree this morning! She has two little brothers in there with her - and their mother has been back and forth all day making sure they are all well fed. I grabbed my macro lens for a quick photo shoot while Mama was away. My 180mm gives me a little bit of extra working distance... which is great for subjects that might not like a lens right up in their business.

BEST VIEWED LARGE

Walking in this part of the world is like walking on another planet. It is almost always windy and the forest glows in the filtered light of the thin cloud cover that is almost alway present. 

How was this image created?
Simple point and shoot. The most difficult think here is to get an engaging composition and the right color balance. This image required very few adjustment in RAW converter...and a bit of cloning dead leaves in the foreground. In other words pretty minimum processing. I did use a circular polarizer to cut down the glare on the wet leaves.

Enjoy & Share.

What happens when we shoot side by side? - Part II

Here is continuation our last conversation with how we go about selecting a scene. This post also gives you some idea of our photographic styles. Quite/Calm vs. Dynamic/Inclusive

Which one is better?
That is not the right question to ask....but rather how can I use each style to expand my creativity? Over the years we have both been heavily influenced by each others style.

What happens when we shoot side-by-side?

We rarely come away with same images...we have different styles and prefer different compositions. Here are few examples:

Are you ready to Travel? Nugget Point, New Zealand

Inspirational locations like these are hard to find...and sometime even harder to photograph. While on our recent trip to New Zealand we wanted to scout out Nugget point so arrived at midday to see what it looked liked. The site and colors inspired us to go ahead and film an entire lesson for our upcoming course. 

How was this photograph created?
This was simple photo to take, but difficult to process. The entire dynamic range of the photo was captured in the one shot, however part of images lacked details and colors. I had to used targeted adjustment using Photoshop Layers and Mask to bring out the colors and details in every part of the image. 

Enjoy & Share.
