Gailen Mapes71,411Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera G-I - 16 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #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.2014-11-16 11:50:08164000

Gailen Mapes66,869Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  G-I - 16 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 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 +2014-08-16 10:52:35159207

Exuberance I - Rio-Antirrio Bridge – Partas, Greece
NEW Photo and blog post about the vision & processing behind it
First time publicly posting this image. You can also see it in the book From Basics to Fine Art, written with +Joel Tjintjelaar  and that you can buy here http://sites.fastspring.com/juliaannagospodarou/product/frombasicstofineart , together with many other images I never posted publicly. These images can be seen only in the book, being created especially for it. You can find details about the creation and processing of this and many others in the book.
Also, you can read about the vision and processing of the image in my blog http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/exuberance-i-making-of-vision-processing/

Point FINAL  
NYC as you will never see it again... You can't see NYC like this anymore, since the Freedom Tower - WTC1 has been added to its skyline. I shot this image when the place of the old WTC was still empty and this is actually a reprocessing according to my new vision for it. So, I could call it a historical image. And it's a historical image for another reason, it's the last image I added to the book From Basics to Fine Art by me and +Joel Tjintjelaar  Thank you all for the many questions about it, the book is finished and we are a few days away from its launching. We'll post the announcement over the next days and if you don't want to miss it, you can subscribe to my site as it will first appear there http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/subscribe/ Small trivia: the book counts 400+ pages. I think it's a record...

New Extensive Review – From Basics to Fine Art book
As time goes by, more and more reviews of the book From Basics to Fine Art- B&W Photography by me and +Joel Tjintjelaar  are published by the readers, and they all say pretty much the same thing: that this book is a must have. In his recently published extensive review, fine art photographer Tony Pedley concludes by saying: “This is a book that I am sure I will re-read many times and is a must for anyone interested in improving their architectural or landscape photography. “ http://photographyformortals.blogspot.gr/2014/11/10-shades-of-grey-book-review.html
Have a look and if you want to see for yourself, you can purchase the book from our webstore here http://sites.fastspring.com/juliaannagospodarou/product/frombasicstofineart

Very happy to have my image “Mirrored Transparencies” featured on the +DxO Labs  ViewPoint page
http://www.dxo.com/intl/photography/photo-software/dxo-viewpoint
Whoever has studied with me in my mentoring programs, or came to one of my workshops, or simply knows me and what software I like, knows that I have a few big favorites. One of them is DxO ViewPoint, hands down the best software you can find out there to deal with the wide angle lens deformations and with removing the “keystone effect”, meaning the converging effect you get in the verticals  when tilting the lens to get the entire scene in the frame. You can avoid this if you shoot with  T/S lens, but not everyone has a T/S lens, because it's an expensive piece of glass, or you can deal with it in post. The best way I could find to deal with this in post is ViewPoint.  So, you can imagine how delightedI am to see... more »

ATHENS Workshop 2014 Group Shot (only one student missing here, saying hi to her too:) 
Athens workshop, this time at the end of it, just before the good bye dinner, at the Olympic Complex with some of the Calatrava structures we shot in the background. Tired but happy after shooting all kind of photography, architecture and seascapes, long exposure and still shots, day and night photography, everything you can imagine, including funny snapshots of each other.

ATHENS Workshop 2014 Group Shot (only one student missing here, saying hi to her too:) 
Athens workshop, this time at the end of it, just before the good bye dinner, at the Olympic Complex with some of the Calatrava structures we shot in the background. Tired but happy after shooting all kind of photography, architecture and seascapes, long exposure and still shots, day and night photography, everything you can imagine, including funny snapshots of each other. The workshop was a big success, I was delighted to work with such a talented group of photographers and all I can say is that it was too short. Looking forward to meeting you again guys and  also looking forward to seeing your images and talk to you about them and your vision over the next period of time. Hope you enjoyed the experience just as much as I did. Wishing you much good luck!  :) 
A big thank you and a shout out to our great sponsors that helped this even be such a successful one +Formatt-Hitech  +Topaz Labs  +DxO Labs +SmugMug +Camerapixo +Stark-Magazine ! You rock guys!! ___

(en)Visionography Special Issue B&W Fine Art - NOW LAUNCHED!!!
http://camerapixo.com/publications/envisionography
You can get your digital copy right from the link above and also order a printed version (I just ordered mine). 
This special issue is a fine art album comprising the best work of the members of the group (en)Visionography – The New Fine Art Photography, a group creating the new wave of B&W fine art photography. I created the name (en)Visionography, and I'm analyzing it more in my book From Basics to Fine Art, written together with Joel Tjintjelaar,  to differentiate my work from traditional photography, since what I do is a kind of art based more on vision than on what I capture in the camera – thus (en)Visionography.

But this way of creating covers the process many other fine art photographers go through and this is what we all want to show with this publication - the power and magic of (en)Visionography as a new way of making photography. This is the photography of our dreams, this is our inner self recreated in images. You can read the Manifest of (en)Visionography in this issue. 
I hope you will all like it and I hope tomorrow there will be many more (en)Visionographers that will create the way we do. And I hope this publication will be a spring board for many talented artists that will be able to get their name and work out there.
Many thanks to all of you who participated in the #envisionographycontest . This is how we chose the images published: 100 of the best photographs among hundreds of entries. The work published in this issue is of the highest quality and was chosen carefully by a jury composed by +Julia Anna Gospodarou  (myself) +Joel Tjintjelaar  (one of the best contemporary fine art photographers), +Anetta G. Heller  & +Artur J. Heller  who designed and published this issue through +Camerapixo  (one of  most popular photography magazines). Anetta & Artur have also designed the book From Basics to Fine Art and,  as you will see in the book and this publication, they are extremely talented and great professionals. Many thanks to everyone who made this publication possible. 
We are writing history here and I'm very happy to be a part of it. 
Enjoy the read and spread the word about (en)Visionography!___

Let's play in Black & White turned to Color challenge  - or something totally different from me – Color!! 
Temple of Poseidon – Cape Sounio, Athens
Bringing the challenge from Facebook to Google+. This challenge started as a B&W challenge then it turned to color after +Nathan Wirth  had the great idea to challenge a few B&W photographers to post some color work and now it's spreading out like fire. I'm happy to have been challenged by Nathan because this gave me the reason and impulse to experiment with color again after a long time of working exclusively in B&W. I think challenge is the best way of keeping us awake and creative, to find new ways of expression or to vary and improve the ones we already have. I tried to work on each of my color images in a slightly different way and this is another one. I may post them all here so you can see another facetof my w... more »

Also a slightly different architectural subject for me, not my usual architectural style, but something to inspire you to look back to history.

THE ESSENTIAL TILT-SHIFT LENS GUIDE
http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/essential-tilt-shift-l…/
Part of the extensive tilt-shift lens study I published in the book From Basics to Fine Art, written together with +Joel Tjintjelaar   , you can now find this guide on my blog. It was initially published on the +Topaz Labs  blog and it was received with a lot of enthusiasm, as you cannot find at this moment on the internet another T/S guide to have all this information about architectural photography. For the entire study, please refer to the book at this link http://sites.fastspring.com/juliaanna…/…/frombasicstofineart
I will also work with my students at Athens B&W Fine Art Workshop on November 15-16, the ones interested in the TS lens, and we will study it in the field, shooting some great locations. I have 2 more spots left for the event, if you want to register please usethis link... more »

NET-York City
Brooklyn Bridge looking over Manhattan – you can see the 8 Spruce Street Frank Gehry building being built in the distance.
An older image that I haven't posted publicly yet (except for the book From Basics to Fine Art) and that I felt today that it was time for it to see the light of day. I do this with quite a few of my images. I keep them for myself for a while. It might seem a bit selfish to do this, but for me it's part of the creation of a photograph, and it might take years till an image is ready to be seen. Some will never be seen, probably. I don't know what I will do with an image when I finish it. Or rather, I consider an image finished the moment it is ready to leave me. It can stay on my hard disk finished for a long time before anyone else sees it. Why? It's part of the creation process, part of the “ritual”. Creating needs time, it needs tobe li... more »

It can stay on my hard disk finished for a long time before anyone else sees it. Why? It's part of the creation process, part of the “ritual”. Creating needs time, it needs to be lived, it needs to be for myself first and then for other eyes. I need to live with my images before I show them to the world. This image made me think about different things over time. It's a multiple metaphor for me. It makes me think about the force of dreams, but also about the force of constraints that rule our lives, it makes me think about different worlds that are coexisting but don't touch, about imagination that transcends any obstacle, and it makes me think about the world we live in, the networking world and its huge benefits but also its limitations. A whole world living in the inter-space between reality and science-fiction... we are here now that you are looking at this photo...
http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/net-york-city-creative-process/
Shot in 2009 with a Sony Cyber-shot DCS-H5, a bridge camera I used in the past when traveling.
If you're wondering, my next image will come soon and it will be from Chicago, a new piece in my Fluid Time T/S blur series.
And because I was just listening to this Leonard Cohen song, and it's happening in NYC … Chelsea Hotel No. 2 - Leonard Cohen - Singing___

These days I'm into new things. One of them is Ello. The others, you will find out soon...:)
If you're on Ello too, come say hi and follow me. Here's my profile. And while you're at it, leave your profile link in the comments so I can follow you too.
PS. not exactly related, but I was just thinking earlier about what Alfred Stieglitz once said: "In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality." I think I know what he meant... You? 
Cheers everyone, enjoy whatever you're doing!

First, I want to congratulate everyone who won a Honorable Mention at the IPA 2014 (the HM have just been announced). All  the images I submitted won multiple Honorable Mentions which makes me happy and now I'm looking forward to the awards announcements next week. Good luck to you all! 
Second, a few words about the Athens workshop. There are just a few spots left, so, if you want to participate, book your spot because we're approaching the limit of admissions.
One question I was asked and I want to answer here, is about the equipment you need in order to attend (or that you need in general, by extension).

The answer is that you don't need any fancy camera or lens, you don't need a tilt-shift lens or some complex external LCD screens, you don't need a full frame camera to create great images. I've shot many of my award winning-images with a crop camera and a common all-around lens, with regular filters and a flimsy tripod, and never thought the equipment would stop me express my vision. And it didn't. If you have more advanced tools, that's great, use them, they will help you, but if you don't, that's great too. All you need is to love photography and be eager to explore your vision and personal style. And know that photography will make you happy even when you use the most modest tools because everything starts inside yourself and not in the piece of metal and plastic the camera is..
Have a look at the great work my past students created, many of them with basic DSLRs and kit lenses. They all loved doing it though. And the results show it.

To participate you have be a member of the group. Join us here https://www.facebook.com/groups/envisionography/
The winners will have the opportunity to have their work published in the internationally acclaimed magazine Camerapixo that has a reach of more than 200.000 readers. There will be a special issue of the magazine dedicated to the group and it will comprise the best work published here. In addition, me and +Joel Tjintjelaar , we will personally offer 3 FREE copies of our book From Basics to Fine Art to 3 winners. 
All you have to do is post great photography on the group and we will do the rest to give you exposure and a book that was compared by many to the books of Ansel Adams (not my words, what critics say). 
Thank you +Artur J. Heller  and +Anetta G. Heller  for this fantastic offer, you show once more that you love photography and photographers.
To see how the contest will unfold please have a look at the blog post I made about it at the link above. All the details are there. 
Good luck and I can't wait to see your submissions.___

FULL Review - FIRECREST 16 IRND 4.8  filters by +Formatt-Hitech
http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/firecrest-16-irnd-formatt-hitech-review/
As promised, here is an extensive review of the Firecrest filters posted on my blog. My impressions after working with the filters for a few weeks. RAW files to check the result and even to download and see in large, also processed images to see the results. I have enjoyed working with these filters at the max and I promise you, if you try them out once, you will never want to use anything else again. Firecrest is indeed the best ND filter have shot with to date – not only free from color cast but also free from vignette and so easy to use. Read the review to see much more.
If you have questions, they are more than welcome.

In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu)
 Shot with the new +Formatt-Hitech  Firecrest 16 ND filter.

This is my first image shot with the  Firecrest 16 stops ND filter that I have just received a few days ago, and with the T/S lens + Canon 5D MKIII, and it is a landscape! 
Surprise?!!!  
Yes, I'm an architecture lover (read obsessed:)) but I'm in love with nature too.
Some more thoughts about everything in the blog post I made about it http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/search-lost-time-la-recherche-du-temps-perdu-firecrest-16-nd-filter/
 I'm already extremely pleased with the results I get with this filter. Shooting with the Firecrest 16 is like shooting without any filter at all, that's how neutral these filters are.

 I'm already extremely pleased with the results I get with this filter. Shooting with the Firecrest 16 is like shooting without any filter at all, that's how neutral these filters are. I was shooting exposures of 8 minutes and more at sunset these days, exposures where all NDs would give you a lot of color cast, just to try this filter at its limits. Well, guess what! No color cast whatsoever, it's that good! I'll let you all know more of my impressions with the new Firecrest (plus RAW files) soon. 
Technical Data: 
Long Exposure Tilt-Shift image.
- Camera settings: 473.0 sec. (~ 8 minutes) @ f/14, ISO 100

A small quote from the review: “From Basics To Fine Art is by far the most complete and well written book on photography that I have read in years. At over 400 pages, I would not say it is an easy read, but more of an educational one. There is no fluff here. It is the quintessential ‘Start at the beginning and continue until you get to the end’ type of book. (…) From Basics To Fine Art is a must read for anyone who is looking to make their way into the world of fine art.“

Third year in a row, happy to be awarded!
GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE (1st, 2nd & 3rd prize) & 2 Honorable Mentions at PX3 2014 PROFESSIONALS – Prix de la Photographie de Paris - The most prestigious European fine art competition with many thousands of submissions from 85 countries – for my series “Fluid Time – An (en)Visionographic Chicago Story” and “Exuberance of Strings”. 
Worth mentioning maybe, I won the only GOLD medal in my category, one of the few categories this year where the jury gave only one gold. So I'm even prouder for that. 
I didn't have much time to work on my photographs this year, due to the long hours I dedicated to the book From Basics to Fine Art plus the workshops and the mentoring programs I'm doing, but I'm delighted to say that all the images I've entered in the competition won an award and even more.

From Basics to Fine Art – BOOK REVIEW

We had a fantastic feedback so far and here's a great review written by +Jack Torcello   to the book  by me and +Joel Tjintjelaar Not only what  Jack says honors us in the highest degree but Jack's writing style is just wonderful. I particularily liked the word play between "Gospodarou" and "gospel" (that I'm emphasizing in the image too). I admit I never thought about it this association, but it's a great find.

Point FINAL  
NYC as you will never see it again... You can't see NYC like this anymore, since the Freedom Tower - WTC1 has been added to its skyline. I shot this image when the place of the old WTC was still empty and this is actually a reprocessing according to my new vision for it. So, I could call it a historical image. And it's a historical image for another reason, it's the last image I added to the book From Basics to Fine Art by me and +Joel Tjintjelaar  Thank you all for the many questions about it, the book is finished and we are a few days away from its launching. We'll post the announcement over the next days and if you don't want to miss it, you can subscribe to my site as it will first appear there http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/subscribe/ Small trivia: the book counts 400+ pages. I think it's a record...

The 1st Postulate of VISION
“Inspiration is not to be found outside, but inside yourself”
What you see in the outside world  is only a pretext for you to feel something about what you see and be inspired to translate it into images by using vision. So, next time you will be searching for inspiration you know what to do. Don't search to find it by looking at what others do, but look inside yourself to find your real vision.  It's there where you will find the answer.

You are the source of everything you create, do never forget this! So, don't try to copy, don't try to emulate, it will not be “You” and it will show. Just have a look around you and you will see who is expressing his own self in his work and words and who is just following. Nothing bad in being inspired, but do not stop there, you will lose yourself as an artist, you will miss your creative purpose. And you may have just one chance to do this because life is short, it's not just a cliché. On the other side, if you do believe in what you do, don't care what others say, what others do, just do your thing. Follow your instincts and they will get you there eventually. Trust your logic and feelings and transform them into images, this is what art is about, being true to your beliefs and finding a way to put them out there for the world to see them. If you do this, you accomplished your mission in front of yourself. 
And don't forget, this is a very tough world, the world of art. Especially once you reach a certain level of exposure. As an artist you are by default exposed since you show your most inner self in your art. You couldn't do your job if you weren't, but that makes you vulnerable: of being critiqued, of being envied, of unscrupulous people  using your work or taking advantage of your ideas without giving you credit, of being scrutinized all the time. I'm talking from experience here, mine and others'. But it shouldn't scare you, it's normal. And you should keep in mind that true value and talent, plus hard work  will always prevail, will always be rewarded. So, trust in yourself and your art, go on doing what you do and don't care about anything else! You are the one that counts, because you have the vision that will become that masterpiece you have in mind...  you are the creator of your “Mona Lisa”...

Technique: T/S LE = Tilt + Shift + Long Exposure
Camera settings: 393.0 sec. @ f/6.3, ISO 100
Shot with Canon 5D MK3 & TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II 
T/S settings - 8.5 degrees oblique tilt at 45 degrees rotation, 12mm shift (rise)
Filters: 10+6 stops +Formatt-Hitech  Filters ProStop IRND - Joel Tjintjelaar Edition
Processing - LR5, PS CS6, +Topaz Labs  B&W Effects 2+Topaz DeNoise 5 + Topaz Detail 3

I have to say that Topaz DeNoise  did a great job in removing the noise from this image. I'm really happy with how it worked in this case, I was even wondering if I should process the image or not since it had quite a bit of noise, before I passed it through Topaz DeNoise. Check out all the Topaz plugins here  http://www.topazlabs.com/782.html  and if you like them get a 15% discount with code “juliaannagospodarou”. Topaz Detail has an even better discount this month. 50% off with code "aprdetail" from the same link. 

For more technical (processing etc.)  details about this image, you know by now, I invite you over to my site http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/fluid-time-iii/ ___

LifO Magazine Interview  http://www.lifo.gr/team/omorfia/47230 
Στα Ελληνικά και πάλι! : ) Δημοσιευμένη σε ένα πολύ δημοφιλές περιοδικό που αγαπώ πολύ, το LifO, είμαι σίγουρη ότι το ξέρετε όλοι. Και αυτό με κάνει πολύ υπερήφανη!!! 
Another interview in Greek, in a magazine I love and read a lot, with a circulation of more than 300.000 copies per week, so I'm very proud to have been asked to be published there. A thank you to Thanasis Haramis for the invitation and the great questions!! For my friends who don't speak Greek, this is mostly about photography and about being a fine art architectural photographer in Athens, my experiences and my professional plans. I promise I'll talk about these things and more in English also very soon, so don't besad if “it all sounds Greek to you” : ) 
Enjoy and thank you for all your wonderful support!

Metropolis Magazine Interview
Μια συνέντευξη “εφ'ολης της ύλης” που έδωσα για το περιοδικό Metropolis που κυκλοφορεί και μπορείτε να το διαβάσετε από σήμερα. Αθήνα και γιατί την αγαπώ.
A new interview with me in the Greek magazine Metropolis that you can find at the news stands from today. No photography this time (not much, anyway). Talking about Athens, history, architecture, life in the city and more. If you don't speak Greek, well, you'll have to find a friend who does, to translate it for you, if you want to hear me talking about anything else than (en)Visionography, Photography Drawing and fine art : ) I can only tell you that it's (even more) interesting. 
Enjoy!!
