Gailen Mapes0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  P-R - 20 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 M2014-04-20 10:27:53117908CC G+

Joaquin Ferguson0This is a curated circle. It's a circle of people I started following in January, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of February, March, and so far in April, about three months. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream,2014-04-12 08:39:25501201CC G+

Graeme McRae23,459Graeme's January Circle . . . This is a curated circle. It's a circle of people I started following in January, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of February, March, and so far in April, about three months. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since January?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Consistency is a proxy for quality. Why is that?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest. On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest are other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will sugggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.How can I get in your circle?. . . Don't bother trying to "get into" this circle. This circle isn't for you to get into. Think of it the other way around. This circle is for you to add, so you can follow a bunch of interesting and consistent people. The stream from this one circle will be chock-full of fascinating content for you to reshare. People will start to notice your reshares, and they will engage with you, and then Google+ will "notice" (it's a computer, but let's anthropomorphise, shall we?) you and suggest you to others, who will then follow you.No, really. How can I get in your circle?. . . First, unfollow me, then wait, oh, about a week. Spend that week posting a shitload of interesting things. Then follow me. Since you're so interesting, Google+ will notify me that you followed me (G+ doesn't notify me about every follower). I'll look at your posts, find one interesting, and follow you. Then, remember to post something every few days. Finally, after two or three months, I might post the circle for the mo2014-04-11 23:47:335008615CC G+

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles.

Gailen Mapes58,412Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera P-R - 20 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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 Map2014-01-20 11:47:07111415CC G+

To Bee Blindsided

Some times, if you aren't really careful, you will bee too busy, with your head in the flowers, and you will get blindsided by those you care about.  Some times, that blindsiding is a good thing, like a hit of ice water on a hot day.  Other times, it is heartbreaking.

Breaking The Deal With The Devil

Week 37
 
I had an assignment this week. It was to only take 36 exposures, using completely manual settings including manual focus. Well, I use manual settings normally and before I got my current camera, in order to use my 50 mm lens, I had to use manual focus.
 
The challenge for me was to get myself in focus using manual... and then I changed the rules. What if I didn't go in focus and I used motion blur?
 
For this shot and all of the other exposures, I used the following song to dance to. I realized something else... It was very apt for me right now. I am breaking an 'addiction' (not drug or alcohol, but still an addiction, nevertheless) and this song is specifically about addiction (heroine in this case) and who you make a deal with every time you feed the addiction.
 
The Song - (and actualvid... more »

Trying To Find Hope

We got some bad news this morning... kiddos and I have been kicked off state health coverage and the state has frozen the children's program completely.  We tried for insurance through the new marketplace... yeah, it would be over 8% of our income.  We are in that "in-between" area where it is too much to afford insurance for the whole family but make just a titch too much to get the state to help.  

The worst feeling in the world is knowing that our state level representatives don't care.  They have had a while to fix this and have said they have NO PLANS to help the 60k-ish children and families in Arizona that fall in those cracks.  

Sigh.

So.  Today, happy #FloralFriday  and the garden of flowers around G+ will surely brighten anyone's day.  I invite you all to peek around and comment and plus andlet'... more »

Watching The Colors Fade

Week 38

There is a small pair of lakes - really, one is a small pond and the other is a larger pond - near my house.  I have been wanting to shoot the sunset out there for a while and since we had a good amount of clouds yesterday... well, it was perfect.

Splish, Splash

I have been exercising quite a bit during the last month, as in 5 times a week.  Three days of weight lifting and cardio, two days of swimming a mile.  

Yesterday, I went for my morning swim and pushed myself to do flip turns.  I admit, I really dislike flip turns.  My rhythm and timing get off and I ended snorting water and nearly choking almost every time, UNLESS I am racing.  For some reason, my timing always turns out.  Since I can't race every time I try to swim laps, I figured it was high time for me to figure the rhythm out correctly.

I am pleased to say at out of 70 possible flip turns, I made all but about 10 of them.  WOOT!!  The ten I missed were due to pausing at the wall or messing up the timing of my breathing.

Bonus... I shaved about 5 minutes off my mile time!!!!  Double WOOT!!

Funny how a title can make you see a photo in a different light.  I didn't title one because I wanted to know what everyone else thought when they saw this.  Hopes? Desires? Tragedy?  What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see this shot?

In a bit, I will post the title I had in mind for this one... if anyone is interested.

Confusing What I Feel

Week 39
 
This week's shot is brought to you by the KONGOS - Come With Me Now. (the cool part... they live in Phoenix! :D )
 
All parts of the song are applicable... the bold parts, most of all.
 
Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
I think I've thought myself to death
 
I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight
 
Come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Come with me now
I'm gonna show you how
 
I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it's something I've read
I stood at this door before, I'm told
But a part of me knows that I'mgrowi... more »

Curves

Thanks to some noise-cancelling this weekend, I found my signal and my muse... got back to what brought me here in the first place and took some floral shots.



Thanks to two people... one who showed me a noise/signal video this morning and one who gave me an assignment to show what risks I have taken.

it's back! what is back you might ask? the Photography Death Match that's what. an event from G+ past that gives two photographers a theme and a week and then at the end of that week they must enter the ring and throw down their best in photographic battle

for the re inaugural battle, it pitted +Tamara Pruessner against +Jason Jakober with the theme being...Food Porn

round one saw Jason laying down a well shot tray of warm cookies but Tam's well placed army of cupcakes coupled with her hungry gaze ultimately sealed it for the judges:

Time To Think, Room To Breathe

Week 41

I heard this song for the first time this week (thanks, +Kyle Wilson!).  

You Me At Six - Room To Breathe (US Version)

Lyrics: 
I feel a little lost in this world.
I try a little noise and choke.
I've honestly never felt this alone.
Oh, I just need someone.

I need a little room to breathe.
You're making this tough on me when all I need is to be set free.
I need a little time to think.
And if you ever will love me,
When all I need is a little room to breathe.

I had a blast at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum last weekend with... of course, +Christina Lawrie, +Shannon S. Myers, and +Mae Hogan!  It was great seeing them again.  We should definitely do this more often.  LOL!  

Found this little bee there... And a bunch more elsewhere.  I even had a hummingbird buzz my ear several times!

Let It Burn

Week 43

I had an assignment this week. It was to take a quote and make it into a photo.

This is the quote I chose:

From the Dark Knight, said by Alfred Pennyworth...

"...Some (wo)men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some (wo)men just want to watch the world burn."

thank you to +Jason Jakober for the building shot in the background

Frozen In A Moment

After yesterday's post, I did make a #PhotographyDeathMatch  community and if you are interested, then please go and join!  The posts will all be public, posted on the battlees' profiles.  The community is to keep everything organized for me and to know who is interested in participating.

So, here is the link: https://plus.google.com/communities/104796777107336838219

If you are interested in participating, there is a list started there with names on it.  Put your name on it!  :D

All Eyes On You

tl;dr - I am bring back #PhotographyDeathMatch .  Do you want to participate?

Once upon a time, not so long ago... WAIT.  That is the start of a Bon Jovi song.  Whoops.

A couple of years ago, +Samir Osman and I had a little "flower battle" and from that, #PhotographyDeathMatch  was born.  We would match up photographers in different genres (trying to get ones that they were NOT comfortable in) and give them a week to produce 3 spectacular images so that they could go "head-to-head" in a just-for-fun battle.  

There was friendly-trash talking and different judges every time.  And just about every single participant walked away with a new friend and learning about a new style of photography.

I have heard that some people would love to see something like that come back.  I think it would be a blast todo again... more »

Bold, Beautiful You

So today, I got to hang out with +Mae Hogan, +Shannon S. Myers and +Christina Lawrie over at the Butterfly Wonderland.  It was pretty cool - well, actually, it was hot and humid.  Whatever.  LOL!

Took my youngest along...and let me tell you, she had one heck of a time remembering "Don't Touch The Butterflies".  :D

Dreams Of Loneliness

Week 44

A bit of #MusicInspiration this morning with some Fleetwood Mac and their song Dreams. I adore Stevie Nicks and this one is one of my favorite songs of hers.

Now here I go again, I see the crystal vision
I keep my visions to myself
It's only me who wants to wrap around your dreams and
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell,
Dreams of Loneliness, like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering 
What you had, And what you lost
What you had, oh what you lost

Fleetwood Mac - Dreams (Official Music Video)

Crowning Glory

Happy #FloralFriday  everyone!!  I know I have not been the best curator lately... heck, for the last year!  I am trying to turn that around and comment more.  Hopefully, today, we can rock this virtual garden!  With spring on the way (and already here in Arizona!) in the northern hemisphere, I am looking forward to seeing what is starting to bloom in your corner of the world.

As always, just tag myself, +Eustace James, +Kiki Nelson and +Beth Akerman into your #FloralFriday  posts so we can stop by and check out your lovely flower photos!

I'd Have Followed You...

So what the heck is going on w/ +Google+?  I am in my "all stream" and it keeps telling me there are TONS of new posts.  So I click to refresh and I get one, maybe 2 or if I am really lucky 4, new posts.  And then it starts the uptick again.  

Anyone else having this problem?

No Boundaries

Happy #FloralFriday  everyone!!  This shot was taken about 20 minutes before the one I posted yesterday. It is amazing what that short amount of time can do when there are winds pushing away the clouds!

The flowers in the foreground is a purple fairy duster plant.  They are all in bloom right now since we are having unusually warm (for this time of year) weather. 

Be sure to tag myself, +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and +Eustace James in all of your #FloralFriday  posts today!

Purple Dusk

I just wanted to share my latest (well..only second) attempt with my new filters.  I am pretty happy with this one and looking forward to keep using the filters and learning more about them.

Purple Dusk

Last night, the sunset wasn't near as good as I hoped, but it was still pretty good!  

This is my second attempt with my new filters and I think I am getting them figured out!!!  WOOHOO!!  For this one, I used .6 nd soft edge graduated and a .6 reverse graduated.  

I am quite happy with this one and look forward to keep working with the filters!

Softly Sighing

Yesterday, I shared this same sunset, just earlier into it.  Both this photo and the other one, I was using my new filters for the first time.  

For this image though, I used the 10-stop, the .6 soft edge nd graduated, and the .6 reverse nd graduated.  Whew!  This one was 128 seconds long.  I honestly am not sure if I should have held the shutter open longer?  I was surprised at the heavy vignetting I got with some of these, though I shouldn't have been since I know when you add 3 filters, you are going to get that. 

I am hoping that tonight's sunset will be another good one.  So far, it is shaping up to be.  I definitely want to go and practice more.  I did read that if you use the 10-stop, it should be the closest filter to your lens.  I didn't realize that when I shot these the other night.

Simple Goodbyes 

A couple of weeks ago, I received the new +Formatt-Hitech filters I ordered.  The next night was a fantastic sunset... and this is my attempt at using those filters for the first time!  I took around 60 images and only found two that I thought would be worth editing.  It seems I will have a learning curve with these!  

What I need to find is youtube videos or simple instructions to get me started on when and where to use them at.  And then I can really start playing with them and get them figured out so that this summer, when the storms come through during the daylight... I can see if I can capture lightning during the day in interesting ways.  :D

Let me tell you about +Tamara Pruessner and our first meeting.
I arrived early for the #PhotowalkAZ and, twiddling my thumbs, checking my settings and exposure (badly shooting stuff badly) while I waited for the rest of the crew, I hear a buzz from my purse and see that Tam has left a message. We have never spoken before, only exchanged numbers.

Lee: Ring, ring! Hi, Tam, it’s Lee. You called?
Tam: WT…? All the streets are closed and diverted and where are you and where does anyone park? (BTW, this is said with an indescribable genuineness and sweetness you cannot conceive.)
Lee: Where are you?
Tam: I’m on Stone and I’ve been around the block a few times …
Lee thinks: Umm, I didn’t need to know that
Lee: Turn right on Alameda. There is a parking lot in front of El Charro that still has spots available.Tam:more »

#RememberingLeeDaniels  

Please, a quiet moment to remember a lady whose indomitable spirit will live on.  

I met +Lee Daniels in person for the first time in November of 2011.  Instantly, I knew this woman was a kindred spirit.  It wasn't long after that, just a couple of months, before I was helping her find help...and just a couple of months later, the cancer diagnosis.  

We didn't always see eye to eye, but dammit, she was my friend.  I will miss her.  This photo was the last time I took her shooting - November 2012.  We shot the sunset out at San Xavier Mission.

Lee, may you fly on the wings of the birds you so loved to shoot.  May you smell all of the beautiful flowers and spot all of the best sunsets.  And most of all, may you finally be able to do all of the things your physical body would no longer allow you to.  I miss you.  I loveyou.  RIP my... more »

Won't Be Afraid

Week 47

Today's shot was inspired (and #lyricallyinspired ) by this "The Following" movie poster - http://cdn.entertainment-focus.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/thefollowing2poster.jpg. I am a huge fan and when I saw that poster, I knew I wanted to do something similar, especially after hearing this incredible version of "Stand By Me".

Well, as I got to shooting and editing, my photo went in a different direction.

The Song: "Stand By Me" by Ki:Theory. Ki:Theory - Stand By Me - Audio Only - Seen on The Following FOX TV show Episode 203

The lyrics:
_When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
