Gailen Mapes67,128Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  F-H - 25 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 August 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 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 +2014-08-25 10:39:52184839CC G+

Diamonds & Pearls

This will be the day, that you will hear me say
That I will never run away
I am here for you, love is meant for two
Now tell me what you're gonna do

If I gave you diamonds and pearls
Would you be a happy boy or a girl
If I could I would give you the world
But all I can do is just offer you my love

Which one of us is right, if we always fight
Why can't we just let love decide
Am I the weaker man because I understand
That love must be the master plan

If I gave you diamonds and pearls
Would you be a happy boy or a girl
If I could I would give you the world
But all I can do is just offer you my love

D to the I to the A to the M
O to the N to the D to the pearls of love
D to the I to the A to the M
O to the N to the D to the pearls of love

There will come a time, when love will blow your mind
And everything you'll look for you'll find
That will be the time, that everything will shine
So bright it makes you colorblind

If I gave you diamonds and pearls
Would you be a happy boy or a girl
If I could I would give you the world
All I can do is just offer you my love

If I gave you diamonds and pearls
Would you be a happy boy or a girl
If I could I would give you the world
All I can do is just offer you my love

If I gave you diamonds and pearls
Would you be, would you, would you
Would you, would you, would you be happy, little baby
If I could I would give you the world

For The Love Of Venice 

Carnival of Venice 2014 By Alfio Ansaloni

Friday means it's 'product photography' day! This #OOAKbespoke   necklace was inspired by my cherished memories of time spent in Venice & this large three dimensional texturized sculpture...

925 Sterling Silver & Freshwater Pearls add to the focus being on the contemporary Venetian Masks, accentuated by an enormous Biwa pearl which is held in place by a claw setting... The pendant rests just between the wearer's breast bone... A sneak peek into the 2015 Bespoke Pearl Collection ;)

Wishing you all an awesome weekend <3

Sailing Takes Me Away

Sailing - Christopher Cross

Well, it's not far down to paradise, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy, it gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie, every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me?

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Well it's not far back to sanity, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free...

It's a beautiful day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not movin' anywhere

You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination

You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away... more »

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out
(Day!)

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
It was a beautiful day

Purple Summer

And all shall fade
The flowers of spring
The world and all the sorrow
At the heart of everything

But still it stays
The butterfly sings
And opens purple summer
With the flutter of its wings

The earth will wave with corn
The gray-fly choir will mourn
And mares will neigh with
Stallions that they mate, foals they've borne
And all shall know the wonder of purple summer

And yet I wait
The swallow brings
A song too hard to follow
That no one else can sing

The fences sway
The porches swing
The clouds begin to thunder
Crickets wander, murmuring

The earth will wave with corn
The gray-fly choir will mourn
And mares will neigh with
Stallions that they mate, foals they've borne

Just The Two Of Us 

I see the crystal raindrops fall
And the beauty of it all
Is when the sun comes shinin' through

To make those rainbows in my mind
When I think of you some time
And I want to spend some time with you

Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I

We look for love, no time for tears
Wasted waters all that is
And it don't make no flowers grow

Good things might come to those who wait
Not to those who wait too late
We got to go for all we know

Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, just the two of us

I hear the crystal raindrops fall
On the window down the hall
And it becomes the morning dew

Darling, when the morning comes
And I see the morning sun
I want to be the one with you

Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, just the two of us
Building big castles way on high
Just the two of us, you and I

Just the two of us, let's get together, baby
Just the two of us, we can make it
Just the two of us, we can make it

Take your own sunshine with you wherever you go...

Well sometimes the sun shines on
Other people's houses and not mine.
Some days the clouds paint the sky all gray
And it takes away my summertime.
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you,
While I struggle to get mine.
If there's a light in everybody,
Send out your ray of sunshine.

I want to walk the same roads as everybody else, Through the trees and past the gates.
Getting high on heavenly breezes,
Making new friends along the way.
I won't ask much of nobody,
I'm just here to sing along.
And make my mistakes looks gracious,
And learn some lessons from my wrongs.

Getting high on heavenly breezes,
Making new friends along the way.
I won't ask much of nobody,
I'm just here to sing along.
And make my mistakes looks gracious,

Well sometimes the sun shines on

Some days the clouds paint the sky all gray
And it takes away my summertime.
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you,
While I struggle to get mine.
A little light never hurt nobody,
Send out your ray of sunshine.

Oh, if this little light of mine
Combined with yours today,
How many watts could we luminate?
How many villages could we save?
And my umbrella's tired of the weather,
Wearing me down.
Well, look at me now.

You should look as good as your outlook,
Would you mind if I took some time,
to soak up your light, your beautiful light?
You've got a paradise inside.
I get hungry for love and thirsty for life,
And much too full on the pain,
When I look to the sky to help me
And sometimes it looks like rain.

As the sun shines on other people's houses
And not mine,
And the sky paints those clouds in a way
That it takes away the summertime,
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you,
while I kindly stand by.
If theres a light in everybody,
Send out your ray of sunshine

You're undeniably warm, you're cerulean,
You're perfect in desire.
Won't you hang around
so the sun, it can shine on me,
And the clouds they can roll away,
And the sky can become a possibility?
If there's a light in everybody,
Send out your ray of sunshine.

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable...

A phenomenal post from an incredible friend! All comments to Tom's original post...

Stranger in common

Adam & Julie - What a sweet couple of strangers who let me accost them in the parking lot right before a cancer fund raising race on Mother's Day. As strangers we shared a common cause, as the sign on the heart indicates. They laughed when they saw what was on the heart. I made it with the intention of wearing it on my racing shirt, and getting my Stranger shot for the Scavenger Hunt after the race, but when I saw that there are kids running I didn't want to be offensive. :P Thanks to Adam & Julie, I got my shot before the race. I then felt horrible for catching up to Adam from behind and beating him to the finish line. I hadn't noticed that I was passing him up as I was just in my own world, until he came up to me after the race while I was waiting for my friend to finish and pointed out that he saw me passing by but didn't have the steam to go after me. :D

As I'm about to go out for my long run today, I wanted to share this to the public stream. Beside my greatest wishes, which is for human to peacefully coexist and to end hunger, this is right up there. I wish we can someday soon find a cure for cancer and stop the suffering in our short existence in this world. I guess I have a lot of wishes.

Thinking of you, +Louisa Catharine Forsyth..

I grew up with many of these elephants and have seen the changes they went through, almost human in their way of thinking and such unique characters. Each bringing something exceptional and rewarding into my life. I am eternally grateful for the times I have spent getting to know them...

And it's definitely true, elephants never forget :)

Thus this is now my post for our +Elephant Wednesday theme today, looking forward to seeing everyone's shots!

#fivedayquest  3/5 : A Macro “Behind the Scenes”

Today I decided to show my current “behind the scenes” macro photography approach.  Below is my personal workflow.  I’m not suggesting it’s the best but maybe there is an idea or two in there you might find useful:

1 - Vision

Before starting, I like to imagine a few of the shots I’d like to end up with that day.  These are the result of combining ideas I’ve been thinking about with real-world realities regarding light and weather conditions at the time. 

2 - Search for Light

My vision of an image is usually a bit vague/flexible in subject but much more defined in terms of light and atmosphere.  That is what I try and find first. After the light and atmosphere is found, I look for a subject to anchor the image.

3 - Control Variables

What can be controlled varies by the image but I like the concept of being able to take a sequence of identical images or images that vary in only one aspect (like aperture).  This ideally means using a tripod, manual exposure, a remote trigger and manual focus.  For some subjects, like moving/flying insects, compromises to these ideals must be made for the sake of practicality.

4 - Focus

My preferred method for macro is manual focus in live view at 1:1 magnification.  Focusing quickly and accurately in 1:1 live view took me a bit of practice but I think it was a well-invested effort.

Good focus involves finding harmony in several points of the frame and often involves moving the camera a few times to get the best balance.   I find it important to think about the focus plane and how various things are aligning with it.

5 - Exposure Selection

The hardest variable for me to pre-envision in macro work is optimal aperture selection, especially when trying to balance reasonable DOF with background rendering quality.  I often just try a range, which is where controlling variables pay dividends :)

Motion blur due to wind is another concern.  Taking a few versions of each image is usually enough insurance.  Raising ISO for more shutter speed (in trade for noise) can help. In more extreme cases -- it can be a tricky balance.

6 - Work Quickly!

Natural light macros require rapid setup and execution.  In many cases, light changes by the minute and it’s not fun to lose a perfect light while messing around with equipment!  Preparation can really help:  for example -- camera already on tripod, already setup correctly as much as possible with the remote already in my pocket all save time! :)

If anyone has questions, feel free to ask :)

You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
