Gailen Mapes62,654Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  D-F - 15 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 Mapes2014-04-15 14:02:31117003CC G+

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721023719CC G+

Justin Hill22,601114 HDR Photographers :- Here's my second circle share for the weekend. I have two circles for photographers and this is my second which concentrates on those that indulge in HDR photography. Some in this circle use the technique all the time and others only once in a while. Each and every one of them is a great photographer in their own right which is why I added them and created this circle carefully over time. You won't see much overblown HDR here, they are all very good at what they do and their images prove it. Once again this circle was put together by me and all within it were hand picked due to my likes and preferences. If I have left you out then I am sorry but I simply cannot put everyone I see in a circle so i have been deliberately selective.  Please feel free to add them all to your own circles or pick your way through and select just a few. By all means share if you so wish. Enjoy...2013-10-13 20:19:15114202CC G+

"You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need." -Rolling Stones

With some time sitting on a train I thought I'd take this time and process one of the shots I took a couple of days ago at Nakameguro. I started the day by meeting with my dear friend @Yumi Shoji a +Yumi Shoji r kawaii baby daughter. After some breakfast and giving the sun some time to warm up the weather a bit we decided to head over to Nakameguro to see if we could catch some of the Sakura in bloom. I'm in town at the tail end of the Hanami in Tokyo, but there are still some decent bloom around town so we hoped to catch some hanging along the river. Much to our delight we found that there were plenty of cherry blossoms to enjoy. Some branches were already bare but there was still enough to paint the scene in its beautiful Spring color.

The memories of her touch will always be cherished. But it's the memories to come that I'm focused on.

You know, as often as I travel to Japan, it’s actually been a couple of years since I’ve been there for the Hanami, when the Sakura are in their peak at full bloom. The last couple of trips I’ve only managed to get there a little too late or a little too early. So with many of my friends enjoying full bloom I thought I’d dig through my archives for an unprocessed photo of the last time I was there for full bloom. And I wasn’t surprised to find myself processing a photo from one of my favorite Sakura viewing spots in Nakameguro. The cherry blossom trees hang so perfectly above the passing river and at night they seem to come even more alive with the lit lanterns along either side, reflecting off of the river bed below. It’s a great sight and no matter how many times I see theSakura, I’l... more »

When you see nothing but lights ahead of you, you'll know that you're headed in the right direction.

If there’s one thing that I can say about the streets of Tokyo, it’s that there’s no shortage of anything interesting to shoot. From the attractive architecture, to the bright lights and the neon signs, and of course the people walking by. And it’s not uncommon to have all of these elements together in one scene such as this one in the Shibuya District. Granted, it’s not the busiest of streets in terms of foot traffic, but when my good friend +Takahiro Yamamoto pointed it out to me, it caught my complete interest. My trusty fish-eye lens worked well for me here because I was able to capture most of the towering buildings on either side of the street. I also loved how these bright street lamps led my eye off into the distant cluster of lights and signs. This is one shot that Ilove becau... more »

"Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads." -Henry David Thoreau

During my last shoot in Joshua Tree National Park, I decided to setup my D3S for a star stacking session. There is a constant stream of airplanes that pass high above Joshua Tree so I figured star stacking would be a good way to get my star trails while also giving me the option to remove any frames that had unwanted airplane trails in post. So I set my tripod down low, composed my shot, got my settings locked in and I let her rip. While the D3S was going I ventured off into the darkness with my pals +Scott Jarvie and +Scott Sugawara to shoot some other interesting trees. After a few hours of shooting in the darkness it dawned on us that with the incredible clouds that had come into the scene that I my star trails would be a wash.

"I never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude." -Henry David Thoreau

It’s often said by my peers that I seem to have incredible luck when it comes to getting scenes all to myself. Whether it's certain hallways in random Vegas hotels, or some of the busiest streets of Tokyo, I manage to get shots with little to no people around. Well, at least not within the frame. And I seem to get these shots without the use of long exposures, which means that when it looks empty, it really is empty. And while I do appreciate my luck, I also attribute it to just good timing. Such was the case on this night when I was taking a train from Omiya, Saitama back to Tokyo. These trains are usually quite busy, but it was already night time and I just so happened to step onto the right train car at the right time. This isn't something I usually think about, but when I do find myselfa... more »

"Lost time is never found again." -Benjamin Franklin

The calm and peacefulness of the Salton Sea is one of the reasons why I love going there for a shoot. Bombay Beach is especially nice because of the surreal area right by the water. It looks like a post apocalyptic movie set, but even with that it’s just so peaceful and it could set anyone at ease. Even though I’m there with the intention of shooting it’s very easy to get lost in the scene and just sit back and enjoy watching time fly by all the way through to the sunset. And on my last visit there I saw that I wasn’t the only one that felt that way. I noticed this one particular bird perched on the ruins of what used to be a pier, just standing there waiting for the sunset.

So I shot him handheld with a +Sony  #A7R  paired with my Nikkor 28-300mm lens.

"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain." -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Several weeks ago in good ol’ Glendale, California, we had some really heavy rain. In fact the rain spread all across Southern Cali, and it couldn’t have come sooner because it’s been much needed and long overdue. So with rain pouring down I decided it would be a good time to test the weather sealing of the +Sony  #A7R . My other camera is weather sealed and  I’ve really enjoyed knowing that. Not that I’ve gone out to purposely submerge it in water, but it has accidentally taken a dip only to survive as if it were brand new out of the box. He he. Anyways, I figure if the A7R is weather sealed too, then some rain wouldn’t hurt it at all. I also attached the Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 lens since supposedly the lens is splash and dust proof. I may be wrong about that, but I took itout into the ... more »

In the morning light she reached up to touch the inviting Spring air.

Yesterday morning being that it was the first day of Spring I decided to take a morning walk around my office building at work to get some fresh air. The temperature was good, not cold but with a gentle morning breeze and a still not too warm but with a nice inviting sunlight filling the scene. That's when I happened to notice this little flower just on the verge of blooming. Being that it was in the morning the thought that came to mind was that this little lady was just waking up to enjoy the first moments of Spring. So naturally I had to take a shot.

As long as you're not afraid to follow your feet you'll always find something interesting to see.

One the things I enjoy about walking around Japan are alleyways like this that are filled with not just shops with various items, but they’re also filled with places to eat. I especially liked the alleyways such as this one in Omiya, Saitama. Walking around the area with my dear friend +Yumi Shoji was especially enjoyable because as much as we like to eat, an alleyway like this works out just nicely. There are so many things to choose from that there was simply no way that we would ever go hungry. And if we ever fell into a food coma we could probably buy a nice pillow to lay on in a shop in this same alley.

And speaking of shining, it's about that time of year to submit photos to the upcoming edition of the +Plus One Collection charity book. If you haven't heard by now, this project which is headed by +Ivan Makarov allows us photographers to submit photos and contribute to a beautifully printed book that collects our photos with the proceeds going to a noble charity. It's a great effort for a great cause and if you haven't yet and are interested in submitting a photo to the project you can grab all the details on Ivan's post here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+IvanMakarov/posts/c54Y13Ljif2

"Excuse me while I kiss the sky." -Jimi Hendrix

It’s no secret that I love clouds. Some of my photography peers like +Yumi Shoji and +Eric James Leffler even call me the “Cloud Man”, member of the “Cloud Lovers Club”. But they also know that I love mountains just as much. So when I can get a great view of them together in one scene then life feels extraordinarily good! So driving through the Eastern Sierra Nevada on a cloudy day makes for one incredible road trip. During a restroom break in Big Pine I looked out to the mountain ranges of Mount Whitney and wanted to get a closer look of the peaks, especially since they seemed very close to touching the cloudy sky. So I zoomed in with my 28-300mm and took this shot. 

One of these days I'll have to hike up there and get close enough to touch that cloudy sky with my hands. He he.

The love in her heart seemed to flow from the top of her soul.

Not too long ago me and a couple of good friends decided to head over to the L.A. Arboretum over in Arcadia, CA. It’s a beautifully maintained area and I don’t honestly remember paying a visit there since I was a little child, so it was pretty much all new scenery to me. Upon entering the grounds and walking around for a bit, we decided to head over to the Meyberg Waterfall. The day was warming up and waterfalls are always an attractive sight so we started walking and made our way through the entire grounds. We ended up approaching the waterfall from an elevated area, so on the way down to the base of the fall, we turned off onto a bridge that crossed over the top of where the water was coming from. When I saw this I immediately felt compelled to go for a long exposure. There were only a couple of challenges with this. For onethi... more »

"I think what makes 'Jeopardy!' special is that, among all the quiz and game shows out there, ours tends to encourage learning." -Alex Trebek

Not too long ago I was lucky enough to find myself the inside of the Jeopardy! sound stage over on the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, CA. I hadn’t been on one of the Lot Tours for quite some time, almost a decade in fact. And wouldn’t you know it, I just so happened to have the +Sony  #A7R  on my shoulder with a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 prime lens attached, thanks to a Metabones adapter of course. One of the things that really stood out to me inside the Jeopardy! stage was the trophy case filled with their Emmy Awards. I believe they’ve won at least 30 of them which is quite a record and has always stood out and considered to be one of the greatest game shows of all time. So being there next to the trophy case, it was easy tosee and... more »

"Regardless what technology is, I like analog too." -Lou Gramm

When the good folks at Google released Analog Efex Pro last year, I was having trouble with my Nik Collection of plugins. For some reason, my collection wasn’t auto updating as it should have. And more than that, HDR Efex started crashing whenever I tried to use it. So I contacted the support team and with some crazy quick customer service, they were able to provide me with a link to the updated Nik Collection install package. Once installed, everything started working normally and I was finally able to play with Analog Efex Pro, as you can probably already tell by looking at this image.

While others stood back, she never once left his side. 

Earlier this week I found myself on a small beach in Malibu getting ready to watch the sunset. It was much warmer than expected which made it easier to park myself down by the shore rocks. But the tide was starting to come in nice and strong which also made for some interesting action in the water. Looking a bit out to try and determine how close I could get to the water without getting soaked, I noticed these two rocks further out from the rest of the pile. They were out there side by side and bracing for impact. They took each hit, not once breaking, and not once moving from each others side. Very strong and very loyal to each other was the thought that ran through my mind. I found myself just watching the waves crash against these rocks for quite some time before finally setting up to take this shot. I didn't have to wait long for a... more »

Sometimes there's more than just greener grass on the other side of the fence.

Sometime last month I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. The weather was nice and warm so I figured it would be a good opportunity to take the +Sony  #A7R  out for some shooting. I decided to attach the Sony FE 35mm f/2.8 lens for my walk because it’s small and keeps the camera nice and compact. Though I wish it were at least an f/1.8, I don’t really mind it being f/2.8 because if I wanted to get more open, then I could simply attach my Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens to the camera. Anyways, as I passed over this pedestrian walkway crossing over the 134 highway, I noticed that sunset had started. So I decided to try out some shots right then and there. With the fence being so tall and keeping me fenced in, I simply focused on the fence itself and get some bokeh from the lights of the passing cars. Thegolde... more »

If you're willing to look beyond television, you might see more of what life has to offer.

While out at the Salton Sea not too long ago, I made it a point to try and shoot the ruins of Bombay Beach again. I’ve taken several shots from there before, but I wanted to do better. And the weather forecast was showing partly cloudy skies in the area, and being the cloud chaser that I am, I couldn’t resist going to the area for another shoot. When I arrived in the area, the scene looked just as surreal as ever. Except there was a brisk wind blowing through the area which made the water of the Salton Sea look quite interesting with it's glass-like ripples. But above all else, more than the clouds, the ruins or the glass-like water, the one thing that truly caught my attention was the old tube television that sat in the water near the shore. It just sat there, partially submerged and seeminglyhav... more »

"Don't stay in bed, unless you can make money in bed." -George Burns

Over the past year or so and since I’m at the Sony Pictures Studios Lot at least 5 times a week, I’ve been trying to shoot this red brick pathway as it leads to the Loews theater and the original MGM gate. More specifically, I’ve been trying to shoot it during the morning blue hour. I’m always on the lot before sunrise so I almost always take a peek at the conditions of the sky and how this pathway looks. In previous posts about the lot, I’ve often mentioned how much I miss the neon signs that used to line Main St. right in the heart of the studio. That being said, this Loews sign is one of two remaining neon signs that are actually still turned on at night and aren’t set to turn off until morning. And what’s more, this pathway is just beautiful all the way down to the gate. Being that it’s so earlyand that I’m al... more »

The love in the air is enough to make anyone feel like they're on top of the world.

With today being Valentines Day, I figured it would be a good time to finally post this shot I took from the Seaside Top observatory deck at the World Trade Center in Tokyo, Japan. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Hey, but it says Happy Halloween on there”! Let me explain. The heart decorations were put up last Valentines Day I believe (I'm sure one of the Tokyo crew will correct me if I'm wrong, he he). The folks in charge decided to keep them up there and when I was in town last October they decided to add a Happy Halloween twist to it to keep it fresh for the occasion. Heck, why not, right? It looks pretty neat regardless of what time of year you see it in. And I simply love how the Tokyo Tower is perfectly composed within the window frame and heart.

Some stars may not come from the sky. But that doesn't mean they're not worth taking a look.

I’m going to go ahead and say that I don’t like malls. Now to be clear, I don’t dislike them. It’s just that hanging around at a mall isn’t my thing. When I need to buy something at a mall, I get to whatever shop I need to, make my purchase, and leave. I don’t bum around at all. That being said, back in December spent a lot of time at the South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA when my sister was in town. Her and her cousins wanted to shop around for souvenirs and quite frankly, I don't care where it is as long as I'm hanging with my little sis. But being at a mall didn't mean I had to shop. I came across this fountain with giant stars hanging from the ceiling and surrounded by ornaments. I thought it looked pretty neat so I used the edge of the fountain to keep my camerasteady and ... more »

There was just something about her that could sweep anyone off their feet.

My little goddaughter has become one of my favorite subjects to shoot as of late. She's at that age when she's talking, running around, and trying to help her pops do chores around the house. In this instance she was happily wielding her broom ready to help sweep the yard clean. While she was taking a break and sitting on her little chair, I decided to try and snap her portrait with my +Sony  #A7R  with a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens (with Metabones adapter).

Trying to take her portrait was a bit of a challenge because this configuration left me with just manual focus and these days she's a bundle of energy that can't sit still for long. But lucky for me I was able to get this shot just as she was jumping out of her chair and springing into action to try and help her pop sweep some more.

It’s no secret that I’m in Japan quite often. At this point in my life I manage to make my way there several times a year. The trips aren’t always long, but no matter how short the trip, I still find myself more than willing to take that flight without any hesitation. But of all the times I’ve been to Japan, specifically Tokyo, it’s actually been a while since I’ve taken photos of the intertwining crosswalks in front of the Shibuya 109 building in the Shibuya district. And I’ve certainly never shot it with a fish-eye lens so during my last visit I figured it would be a perfect time to do that. And as a bonus, I happen to be walking these streets with my good friend +Takahiro Yamamoto so I was able to get his guidance on the best place to stand in order to get a decent shot of this areausing the fish... more »

"I must be looking for something, something sacred I lost. But the river is wide and it's too hard to cross." -Billy Joel

It's been quite some time since I've shot some epic clouds around Southern California. I mean, they've made appearances, but I don't feel like I've been in a good position to shoot them unless I was sticking my phone out of a car sunroof. And if I'm honest, I've become less willing to sit in bumper to bumper traffic to get out to a nice coastal location. But when I went to visit my brother in Long Beach I noticed that some epic clouds had returned. So epic in fact that as soon as I exited the freeway I immediately parked somewhere so that I could take some shots of the scene. Luckily for me the LA River is long enough that it crosses through Long Beach, and even luckier is that I just so happen to exit right next to an overpass that... more »

When all lines lead home, you'll never have to feel lost.

As some of you may know,  I’ve been playing around with the +Sony A7R as of late. It’s a fine camera, but with no native FE Sony wide angle lens available until at least the end of the year, I've been using my Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 UWA with a Metabones adapter whenever I've been in need of a wide angle view. Even with focus peaking and the manual focus assist, my results so far have been hit or miss with that setup. Though +Colby Brown made an excellent point in the comment thread on one of his posts by saying he uses focus peaking simply as a guide and continues to fine tune until it's just right. I must admit that I may have gotten myself caught up in how awesome peaking is and have come to rely too much on it, so I think I'll take Colby's approach and take more time to really fine tune the image properly.Hopefu... more »

"We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand."  -E. M. Forster

For those that know me, you’ll know that I love shooting the South Tufa area at Mono Lake, CA. I have a ton of tufa shots floating around here, on my blog, portfolio and various social networking sights. They’re just so fascinating a subject and seems so out of this world that I really can’t resist shooting them no matter how many shots I have from there. And it should also go without saying that I absolutely love the sunsets out there. But one thing that I did make an effort to do was look away from where the sun was setting. It’s such a stunning scene that I must admit to getting lost just staring at the scene and I forget to look around me. So during my last visit, with the sun setting and close to touching the peaks of the distant mountain horizon, I turned away from the sun to grab some shots of the goldencolored ... more »

There are times when I can't help but smile when I'm feeling a little blue.

With my pal +Jerry Denham in town on business me and my other pal +Scott Sugawara decided to get out and meet with him in San Clemente. Jerry was staying in San Diego, and with me and Scott coming from L.A., San Clemente seemed like a good midway point to meetup and shoot some of the California coast during sunset. It had been quite some time since I last hung out with Jerry, and I hadn’t shot with Scott since Death Valley so I was very eager to get out and hang with the fellas. It has also been a super long time since I shot any ocean scenes so I was very eager to get out there to see what the scene looked like. I also thought this would be a good time to see what the Sony A7R could do with some long exposures along with the Sony FE 35mm f/2.8 lens.

Any time spent with a good friend, no matter how little or how long, is time well spent.

During my last visit to Tokyo, Japan, and more specifically on my last full night in town, I heard from my good friend +Takahiro Yamamoto that he had some free time and would be in Shibuya. So from Omiya I hopped on the train to take me directly to Shibuya Station without having to make any transfers. The typhoon that had swept through Tokyo left some of train lines a little delayed due to some safety issues with some of the tracks, so I ended up delayed to meet up. When I finally met up with Takahiro it was already passed 21:00 and being that it was a work night I didn’t want to keep him out too late so we stayed in the area and shot around town. It was another prime lens photowalk like we usually do whenever I'm in town, so each of these shots were taken with my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8. Very minorpro... more »

Every now and again, adding a little milk to your tea seems like the way to go.

I’ve said before that one of my main goals for my last visit to Death Valley was to shoot the stars. More specifically, star trails. Death Valley is where I learned how to shoot star trails and I wanted to shoot them there again now that I had quite a lot of practice under my belt.

But for now I wanted to take this time to wish my good friend +John Getchel a very Happy Birthday! I first met him out in Death Valley a couple of years ago during the big DV2011 trip and he's been a pal ever since. So here's to you my friend. I hope you have yourself an excellent day!

"To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities." -Bruce Lee

When my sister was in town for the Winter holidays we were treated to some truly epic sunsets. Some of the best looking skies of the year in fact. The problem? For each of those sunsets we were either stuck indoors at a mall while her family shopped or in the instance of this shot, stuck in a car. We were both riding as passengers on our way back to L.A. and stuck in some incredibly bad traffic. Bad enough to rival the traffic you would find in Jakarta or Manila in fact. But with a sunroof available I wasn’t about to let this one get away. So we opened up the sunroof and I stuck my trusty iPhone out there and took this shot. And with so much time to kill in the car, I was able to process this image using the Snapseed app. I would have loved to have been on the shores of a beach or high in the hills for this one, butc... more »
