Google Science Fair2,522,366*The Science of Photography* Digital photography offers amazing flexibility to capture and modify images. But how does the science of photography actually work? What are the basic principles of light, and how do they affect how photographers shoot? How do different cameras and lenses capture images differently? And how do software tools change the way those images are ultimately viewed? Come to this Hangout On Air with +Trey Ratcliff, the world-class photographer whose work is displayed at StuckInCustoms.com. He will be interviewed by +Robert Scoble, well-known blogger, technology analyst, and amateur photographer, as well as our very own Google Student Ambassadors. Here's your chance to learn about the science behind those amazing images. Have questions for our guests? Post comments on Google+ with #GSF2013. Tuesday, May 7, 2:00PM PT / 4:00PM CT / 5:00PM ET / 2200 GMT / 2300 CE / 900 NZT (8 May) ---------- *Find out more about the #GSF2013 Hangout series:* goo.gl/H0pNq *Official Google Science Fair website:* http://goo.gl/FU1hyTrey Ratcliff - Google Science Fair 2013 Hangout On Air2013-05-07 23:00:00646

Gailen Mapes78,019Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera M - 8 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.2015-02-08 11:39:30138004

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0It is time to honor these great photographers many of whom have been shared on +Beautiful Beautiful Birds #beautifulbeautifulbirds .  This circle contains photographers both professional and amateur alike who are passionate about photography. Many are bird and wildlife photographers, although some only photograph birds and wildlife on occasion.   If you enjoy great photography, please consider adding this circle.  The photographers come from many walks of life, and from all over  the globe.   This circle is not complete, but will continue grow.  Sadly google for whatever reason will not allow more then 500 people to be shared in any one circle.  This circle was over 500 and I will need to figure out who was omitted once this is shared.  They will be the first to be placed in  the next circle that I will share.   That circle will be shared as soon as I have what I feel is a large enough circle to once again share.   Thanks for following Beautiful Beautiful Birds, and please follow those whose work make this page possible. Without their public shared this page would not be possible.Warmest Regards,+William Joers curator of +Beautiful Beautiful Birds 2015-01-08 18:34:11501000

Dubie Bacino116,401Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (14th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing , my practice is to share two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. 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 appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU , connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara. If not, check it out, it's the new social network that pays you revenue for your online activity! -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-08 11:49:23143001

Although this circle is not completed it is the circle of fine photographers who have had one of more photos shared on the all new #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds page.  Please note that this circle will continue to expand and will be re-shared as it grows. Just a note of appreciation to all these fine photographers, thanks for allowing me to share your fantastic work. I will be away for a few days ( until Nov. 24th ) and will not be able to post any additional photos until my return.  Sharing this circle is highly encouraged and appreciated, adding the hash tags to my page is appreciated as well, but please know it is not required to be showcased here. If you are a photographer of birds and have high quality photos you share publicly, please consider adding #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds to your circles, as it will help me find you in the future. Lastly, to all the fine bird loving photographers, may you be blessed with more and greater captures,Respectfully,+William Joers 2014-11-18 13:54:1216732743

Artist Drive, Death Valley National Park
Hazy days made for difficult photography at Death Valley National Park when I first arrived. The air was dense and the clouds and haze obscured most of the grand views.

The haze tended to lift around sunset and I got a few good shots at Devils Golf Course and Badwater Basin, but the days were pretty much a write off except for scouting locations.

On the fourth day I was in luck! The haze finally lifted and there was just enough cloud in the sky to make a photographer happy.

Sometimes waiting for the right light can take days!

I used this opportunity to photograph some of the vivid colours along Artist Drive, a scenic one way loop road with many sharp curves and deep dips.

This image comes from my favourite section of Artist Drive known as Artist’s Palette.

Giraffe in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

With the vast open plains of golden grasses and big blue skies, the central Serengeti creates a minimalist background like no other place I have been to. In fact, the word serengeti means “endless plains” and at over 14,000 square kilometers the plains do seem to go on forever.

Devil’s Cornfield, Death Valley National Park

I made this image in the early evening just as the light began to soften, but while there was still plenty of light illuminating the mountains and making the stacks of arrowweed appear golden. I was heading to the sand dunes for sunset, so I didn’t spend much time here. I just pulled off to the side of the road for a few quick shots.

Two Lions Walking Away
When I first saw the Serengeti I was struck by how plain and flat it looked. It was so flat that I thought it wasn’t possible for there to be so many animals there. Surely, if a giraffe was there I would be able to see it standing tall above the grasses. But it is amazing how the animals camouflage themselves. You can’t see them at first, but they are definitely there.

Wildlife Photography in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania – Part 1
In this photo of an elephant between two acacia trees, I saw the elephants heading in that general direction and asked the driver to position the vehicle so I would have a good angle to photograph the trees and hoped an elephant would cooperate and walk past them.

Bighorn Sheep
The Bighorn Ram stared at me for awhile and then started ascending the hill. They really blend into the background! If it wasn’t so quiet in the desert, I might not have heard the tumbling rocks and missed it altogether!

Wandering into a Bighorn Ram
I like to wander. In fact, I think wandering is one of my favourite things to do! Sometimes I am keeping my eye out for something specific – and other times I try to keep an open mind and see what nature has in store for me.

Tilapia at the Salton Sea, California
Because there is no outflow the salinity of the Salton Sea increases every year and now only one kind of fish can survive- the tilapia. When they die, they wash up on the beach which is covered with dried up tilapia.

By the way this is not a white sand sand beach with lovely seashells – those are super sharp barnacles and bones! No wearing sandals here (I learned the hard way).

The Third Joshua Tree
It was taken at the beginning of sunset when all the shades of blue, pink, orange and yellow light up in the sky. I got close to the tree, positioned myself low to the ground, and angled the camera up to the sky so that none of the tree’s branches would touch the trees in the background (or at least that is what I was trying for, I think a few bits actually do touch).

Mono Lake, California
Mono Lake, California, made me feel like I was visiting a lake on the moon!

The bright blue topaz coloured lake is 2.5 times as salty as the ocean and is very alkaline. This is a result of salts and minerals washing into the lake from the Sierra Nevada streams, evaporating fresh water, and the fact that the lake has no outlet.

Get on your knees! Or … not.
As nice as the sky was, I decided that the unique features in the scene were the rocks and the shape of the shoreline at low tide. I collapsed the legs of my tripod so it was as short as possible to get closer to the rocks and angled my camera down placing the horizon in the top third of the frame. Pointing the camera down when you use a wide angle lens has a dramatic effect and even distorts the edges of the images a bit, but I’m ok with that.

White Pelicans at the Salton Sea, California
The best thing about RVing is the changing scenery. Every time we move, I get a brand new back yard to look at, a new sunrise to enjoy, and a new place to relax for happy hour.

Lately we’ve been hanging out at one of my favourite boondocking spots in California: the Salton Sea. This is the third year we’ve stopped here and this time we’ve explored more locations along the sea and spent more time observing the birds, particularly the white pelicans.

Driftwood Art
The massive accumulation of driftwood at Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island, BC, is fascinating. But even better is all the driftwood art made by campers at the nearby campground.

The beachfront campsites all have their own unique art. In one campsite a long time seasonal resident made this gorgeous carving.

This Baobab Tree is One Thousand Years Old (give or take)
I come from British Columbia, Canada, so that means it’s pretty hard to impress me with big trees. People come from all over the world to be awestruck by the magnificent old growth forest I grew up with.

But one tree I was impressed by is the incredible Baobab Tree in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania.

It’s not necessarily the size of the tree. There are taller trees, there are wider trees, there are older trees, even though the Baobab can live to be thousands of years old. It’s really the shape and stature of the tree.

It often stands alone, looking like it has been plucked out of the ground and stuck back in upside down with it’s roots in the air. Like the camels of the tree world, it’s cork-like bark is fire resistant and holds thousands of gallons of water which helps it survive the long dryseason. In... more »

Like the camels of the tree world, it’s cork-like bark is fire resistant and holds thousands of gallons of water which helps it survive the long dry season. In fact, they have been known to survive for 10 years without rain!

The deep gouges in the tree’s trunk are from elephants that strip it’s bark to obtain moisture in the dry season.

Baobab trees make excellent photography subjects because of the shape of the tree, especially when you photograph them against a dramatic sky.

This is an HDR (high dynamic range) image made by combining three exposures in post processing. After combining the exposures, I finished it off by using Topaz Restyle to give it the colour style I wanted.

Cape buffalo in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
The cape buffalo also number in the thousands. This one has a small oxpecker on his back. The oxpecker feeds exclusively on the backs of large mammals, cleaning them of ticks and other insects.

Best Lenses for Landscape Photography
Here's one of the most popular blog from last year.

While it may seem absurd to spend more on a lens than on the camera itself, most photographers agree that they would always prefer a cheap camera with a quality lens, rather than the other way around. And because they don’t depreciate in price as quickly, the investment is far more worthwhile.

Lion and cub at Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

After a hot lunch we were ready for our first game drive to the crater, and soon after our 2,000 foot descent to the crater floor we came across some lions. In the heat of the afternoon, the lions were mostly lying flat in the grass sleeping. That doesn’t make for very interesting photos, but we found one mother with some pretty active cubs that weren’t allowing her to get any sleep. I loved watching the interaction between the cubs.

Wildlife Photography in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
Glowing golden plains, with backdrop of dark hills, and layers of clouds that change from dark to light softening the sun’s rays that bathe the land – it was a place of incredible beauty, a landscape photographer’s dream.

But I wasn’t there for the landscapes.

I was there for the 25,000 large wild animals and countless smaller animals that occupy 100 square miles in the Ngorongoro Crater of Tanzania.

Lower Myra Falls, Strathcona Park, Vancouver Island, British Columbia
One of my favourite places in Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, was Lower Myra Falls. The hike is about 1 kilometer from the parking area and it leads to a stunning group of cascades deep within the forest above Buttle Lake.

I could spend all day photographing falls like these that have such variety from numerous small falls above crystal clear emerald pools to large gushing falls. For some reason the act of getting all prepared and rushing in to take the shot before my camera and filters got covered with spray is so much fun for me!

Enjoy and share!

Elephant Herd
Overshadowed by the popular Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire has far fewer tourist than the other destinations in Tanzania which makes it a great spot for photographers who want to enjoy a peaceful moment with fewer tourists.
