Dubie Bacino92,403Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino  (9th 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 engaging content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only 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 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.

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 17:39:05116894750CC G+

Gailen Mapes65,117Hand 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 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 Mapes2014-06-15 10:56:4712410217CC 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 16:56:5721024720CC G+

It was only when I looked back on my past did the trail appear as clear as day.

Once in a while I like to dip into my processed photo archives to see what photos I might be able to do better with now as opposed to back then. It’s a good exercise in my opinion and a good way to gauge how far I’ve come when it comes to photography whether it’s behind the camera or in post production. When I originally processed this image I still wasn’t too knowledgeable about what I can pull from the RAW file. In fact, I pretty much did nothing to it. So looking at that I decided to really bring up the exposure and reveal all of the stars that I saw that night which didn’t come out in my originally processed photo. And wouldn’t you know it? I managed to pull out quite a beautiful scene. Of course being inexperienced with shooting back then I didn’t have the most ideal settings for this but the RAWgave me so mu... more »

Knowing that your warmth was with me made that long walk all the more magical. 

There’s just something magical about a long pier as it heads off into the distant horizon, isn’t there? Especially on a warm evening in my opinion. It’s like a path to chase the remaining light just as it begins to fade away. Whenever I’m in Venice Beach, CA I make sure to stop by the Venice Pier to try and get a shot of it. It’s not the most robust pier in California, but it’s narrow size makes it seem like it stretches out much further than the other piers in this state. When the sun dipped below the ocean horizon, the colors really started to come alive with a beautifully warm blue hour.

And so my summer fun by the sea continues with another seascape shot. I'm normally partial to color, but if you'd like to see what this image looks like in black and white, feel free to click through.

If you'd rather not, here's the spoiler. It's the same image, just in black and white. Simple, right? He he.

Seeing the distance between us left me blue. Knowing you were within reach filled me with light.

No matter how many times I’ve shot Downtown L.A. from a distant location, I have yet to grow tired of it. One reason being that I don’t feel I’ve shot it as well as I could. But opposite that thought, it’s such an attractive skyline that I can’t get enough of taking a shot of it. The heart of the City of Angels seems to especially come alive during the blue hour. Because the landscape around DTLA is mostly flat, it’s almost like an Emerald City type of view as the valley leads right to the center of the world. On this particular night there was a layer hanging just above the skyline. Marine layer perhaps? Smog hanging around? Not sure really but it looked quite interesting. As if the city was separating itself from the empty sky in order to fill the world with lights. Whatever the case maybe, there’s... more »

If there's one thing that Tokyo has plenty of, it's junctions and elevated expressways. And if there's one person that knows how to get the best shots of them, it's my pal +Takahiro Yamamoto!

My last time in town, we revisited a junction that he had taken me too several years prior. But this time around, it wasn't cold enough to make me too lazy to shoot anything. He he. And coincidentally enough, there was a decent moon in the sky just like the last time we visited this spot together. Which you don't see in this shot, but you'll just have to take my word for it. ;-P

Today's blog post features the first shot I've taken with the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 wide angle lens. I think it's safe to say that I'll be using it more often from here on out. 

This was taken while it was paired with the Sony A7R. More details about this shot on my blog post (in case you're interested, that is. He he).

Last month, my buddy +Brian Kemper invited me to take part in a hashtag photography game called #fivedayquest . I decided to put all of those images together for today's blog post. 

And of course, how could I not kick things off with good ol' ECTO-1!

Once upon a time, I met Mr. Pig and two of his friends, both of whom also referred to themselves as Mr. Pig. 

And they were each dressed as their favorite fruit. They didn't go into much more detail than that about the way they were dressed, but they happily lined up for a group photo.

Before I head out the door in search for free BBQ, I thought I'd share today's blog post for the 4th of July. Not the typical fireworks scene, but it's a building I found most interesting in a small town called Independence here in California!

Now, off on my search for grilled burgers and hot dogs!

“Did you just light paint that with your phone?” is what my pal +Scott Sugawara asked. 

"Why, yes Scott. Yes I did." is what I replied with.

At the end of a long, but fun shooting night, a fella can get some rather interesting results when his camera is still on, his phone still has some juice left and there's light pollution in the air. He he.

It only took her 306 seconds to fill the hole in his blue heart.

Shot with the +Sony  #A7R  paired with a Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 UWA.

I haven't been able to hang with my pal +Rob Lopes in quite a while, so I thought I'd go digging into the archives for a shot of him in action. From several years ago!!! I was really into angles when I shot this. And when I say angles, I mean tilting my camera at an angle. He he.

Rob also looked like he was going to strike me down with that glare. I must have interrupted his shot. He he.

He tried calling out to her but only heard an echo of a past love.

Since adding the Sony A7R to my camera bag, I’ve been thinking a lot about many of the locations I’ve been to in the past few years. Locations that I constantly visited during ideal shooting conditions such as Echo Mountain in Altadena, CA. I lugged my D3S up there so many times that it actually became pretty easy for a while. But it’s also one of the reasons why I haven’t been back. Not only do I not like to overshoot from a specific location (which I have in the past), but because I have shot from Echo Mountain often I’m usually uninterested in making that long uphill hike with my DSLR gear and tripod unless I know it’ll be worth it. And as we all know, Mother Nature has a way of being kind, but also has a way of changing the conditions by the time you get to a location. This was one of the last shots I took upthere, when... more »

日本語をはなしてもいいですか?もういちど日本語をべんきょうから。理にかなって? Probably not, but I'm working on it. 

Today's blog post is a bit more lengthy than my daily average. After years of neglecting my Japanese language studies, I take some time to explain why I've started up again and some of the resources I'm using to help me out. You see, as often as I visit Japan, my already limited vocabulary and grammar knowledge has slowly but steadily taken a dip. I can still get by on my own with basic stuff like, "I'd like to order this meal" or "Which way to Mister Donut?" but overall I haven't really had to struggle. Especially when all of my friends over there speak English very well. But that's going to change. I've left my studies unfinished long enough and it's about time I get my lazy ass in gearand finally improve on my Japanese.

And for anyone that might be i... more »

“These guys really are everywhere!” is exactly what I said to my buddy when we arrived to the Saddleback Butte State Park near Lancaster, CA. I mean, the Joshua Trees. They’re everywhere! He he. In fact, apparently when it first opened in about 1960, it was originally called Joshua Trees State Park. But a few years later it was changed to Saddleback Butte State Park to avoid confusion with Joshua Tree National Park. 

See? I'm capable of learning a thing or two every now and again. ;-P

On a side note, it seems that G+ is pulling an awkward thumbnail again so feel free to consider this another teaser. He he.

It was only when I looked back on my past did the trail appear as clear as day.

Once in a while I like to dip into my processed photo archives to see what photos I might be able to do better with now as opposed to back then. It’s a good exercise in my opinion and a good way to gauge how far I’ve come when it comes to photography whether it’s behind the camera or in post production. When I originally processed this image I still wasn’t too knowledgeable about what I can pull from the RAW file. In fact, I pretty much did nothing to it. So looking at that I decided to really bring up the exposure and reveal all of the stars that I saw that night which didn’t come out in my originally processed photo. And wouldn’t you know it? I managed to pull out quite a beautiful scene. Of course being inexperienced with shooting back then I didn’t have the most ideal settings for this but the RAWgave me so mu... more »

Though I'm known as being a landscape photographer, sometimes I shoot people in the face too. 

Including my nephew. Up until a few days ago I hadn't seen the little guy in several years. It was great being able to see how he's grown since the last time I saw him. And with today being his birthday, I thought I'd post his portrait over on my blog. I won't be able to see him today which is probably a good thing, because if there's cake to be had, I'd probably inhale it before the candles were blown out. He he.

Whenever the tide is coming in high and strong, I like to find a good position in one of two places to witness the wave action. One is of course right on the shore so that I can get right in the face of those waves. There’s nothing like freezing those moments just before getting splashed. And the second is above the waves so that I can witness the entire seascape as the tide washes the shore clean.

And luckily (or unluckily depending on how you look at it) I sometimes get clouds like this without any rain every dropping from the sky. It's a Southern California charm I suppose, but we're also in a drought so it was actually too bad not to have any rain this day. He he.

They never once left each others side as they swayed happily with the wind.

When I met up with my good friend +Takahiro Yamamoto in Tokyo, we decided to get together for a shoot outside of the typical districts where we usually shoot in. I had expressed wanting to shoot outside of the city, but with appointments for later in the night, Takahiro suggested we hit up the Kasai JCT over in the Edogawa Ward. It was outside of the heart of the city, but still within Tokyo limits so it was a good compromise. We arrived with plenty of time before the sunset, so we explored Kasai Rinkai Park. We had to walk through there anyways to get to the junctions we wanted to shoot, so it was a good chance to explore the area and kill time before sunset. As we walked closer to the bay, we noticed this field of, well, I’m not sure what they’re called. But needless to say, there was just a small patch of them inthe ... more »

I thought I'd keep images from the Salton Sea coming today. Today's blog post photo was shot on the same trip as the photo I posted for Thirsty Thursday Pics this morning. I shot it with the Sony A7R with my Nikon 28-300mm lens attached with a Metabones adapter. Handheld too, because even with a slow lens and slow shutter, why not, right? 

Turned out decent I think. Well, I like it anyways. And in the end, isn't that what's most important? He he he.

"One man's trash is another man's art." -Idiom quoted by many

Bombay Beach out by the Salton Sea has always been a very interesting place to shoot. As if it’s post-apocalyptic scene wasn’t already interesting enough, looking out from the beach it’s quite common to see some incredible pastel colors painting the view. Even the beach of fish fossils adds to the mood. Whether that’s good or bad varies depending on who you ask. And there tends to be bits of trash on the beach, not too much, but there’s trash nonetheless. But not so much that it distracts from the scene. During my last visit I decided to visit a part of the beach that I hadn’t before. As I approached I noticed this little pit-like area with a pool of trapped water. It was easy to see the reflection even from afar. When I finally got there, I found what seemed like a dumping ground for various trash. Theremay have be... more »

Whenever I look out the window, I can't help but wish I could fly across this wide world. 

Earlier this year when the Sony A7R was still fresh in my hands, I yearned for a native wide angle lens. Using my Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8 by way of an adapter is working out just nicely, but I would prefer to use native lenses. Mostly because lenses for this system are much smaller, which means lighter. Secondly, it would be nice to be able to carry around the camera with a wide angle for any spur of the moment landscape scenes where only an ultra wide would do. I’ll have to wait for such a native lens, but I have tried E-mount options. I’ve heard great things about using the 10-18mm f/4 UWA so I decided to give it a go myself. I only had use of it for a few shots but it was enough for me to pass on it. While I think it’s a fine lens, I just don’t feel like paying that price tag to only have a fewfocal le... more »

It may be just me, but whenever I see a rose, it reminds me of The Little Prince. So I really can't resist taking a shot of a rose or two wherever I see them because of the memories I've associated with them.

Even giant sculptures of roses.

In any case, I know this is something that +Yumi Shoji would appreciate. ;-)

I scream, you scream, +Takahiro Yamamoto screams for ice cream!

On an evening of walking around Tokyo with my good friend, he had a sudden craving for some ice cream. Though most of my time there was cold, that particular evening was a bit on the warmer side. Luckily there was a Family Mart right across the street from where the craving hit. Even before digging in he looked extremely satisfied, so I took this shot to capture a moment of happiness. And when ice cream is involved, who wouldn't be happy? 

I'd also like to wish my good friend Takahiro a very Happy Birthday! お誕生日おめでとう pal! I hope you've had a great day so far!

There’s just something magical about a long pier as it heads off into the distant horizon, isn’t there?

One of the big advantages of living on the West Coast is having access to so many beaches and piers. And though some might look the same as the next, upon closer inspection, each one has it's own little charm.

While thoughts of a fading memory left him blue, it were the thoughts of a love known that left him feeling warm.

I finally got around to playing around with Analog Efex Pro with a photo I recently posted to my blog. Though I'm leaning towards the original, I still found this result to be quite interesting and a total change from how I originally processed it. These tools are advancing so much that it's a lot of fun being able to change an image completely in this manner. Great time to be into photography, am I right?

This is also another one of those moments when we both unknowingly shot the same scene from different angles. It's fun to compare but I think he won this round.

As some of you may know, I'm a landscape kind of guy. I would happily climb up a mountain, stand hip deep in ocean water, or stand in the freezing cold just for the chance at a decent shot. But of all of that, what I found the most challenging recently was taking couple photographs of my newlywed friends.

I have a stack of shots that all turned out, well, like bleh, but I liked this one so I posted it.

As of late, I've been determined to shoot some super long exposures with the +Sony  #A7R . At least long exposures longer than 30 seconds. So when I found myself overlooking this scene in Malibu, I figured 306 seconds was a good way to start my super long exposure Spring/Summer campaign. 

The A7R performed well for me during this shoot. And I'm pleased to say that I didn't experience any light leaks. I guess waiting until the 2nd shipment of A7R's worked out nicely for me.

Having a camera with me at all times means I'm least likely to miss out on even the simple things in life. Like donuts, a cheeseburger, or finding a small little flower catching a bit of sun to relax in.

She happily stood next to him knowing she wouldn't have to be afraid when the light faded away.

If there’s one thing I don’t mind doing, it’s standing around for sunset. If it isn’t already too obvious, I love sunsets and sunrises. And for the right one I really don’t mind standing to watch the whole sequence. In fact I don’t even realize that I’ve been on my feet for several hours. I tend to get lost in the scene, enjoying all that I see. And one thing that I’ve tried to remember to do is to look away from the actual sunset because the scene behind me tends to be just as mesmerizing. Like this scene over in Joshua Tree National Park. The sky was flat where the sun was setting but behind me was this glorious color lightly painting the scene of deserts, mountains and Joshua Trees. It was a very gentle and calm evening and I didn’t really notice the time pass. Joshua Treenever disappoints... more »
