Gailen Mapes75,423Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera L - 18 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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.2015-01-18 11:45:4166111

Graeme McRae36,119Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see lots of new posts in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then you might want to reshare it to get more followers. It's a circle of people I started following during the 1st quarter of 2014, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. 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, and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . 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.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . 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 (or funding). 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 is 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 suggest 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.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoyi2014-11-30 23:50:06497584595

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.2014-11-18 11:49:1668001

Breath of Life || France 

I can feel in my heart that 2015 is going to be a wonderful year for travel and I honestly can’t think of another time in my life where I’ve felt so excited and optimistic about the future. We live in a beautiful world that’s just waiting to be explored and this year, I plan on seeking out new destinations that will challenge my senses and help to propel my photography in new directions. I also plan on post-processing many new images from my five year working archive, like this one from the stunning Provence region of Southern France. 

Naomi and I visited this area last July and we instantly fell in love with the seemingly endless lavender fields. From a photographer’s standpoint, it’s a composition and leading line paradise where the color combinations never cease to impress. From a travelers eye, it’s almost unbelievable that this placeactually exis... more »

Village of Dreams || Austria 

When I posted a photo last week, I said that I could feel that 2015 was going to be an incredible year for travel - which I believe to be 100% true. Unfortunately though, the next day I came down with a nasty virus and the furthest I’ve traveled over the past few days is the few short blocks between the supermarket and my hotel room bed! So yeah, that happened. ;)

The good news is that I’m feeling better now, but the forced downtime is unfortunate and I do apologize for not connecting with everyone in Sydney while I’ve been in town. I really did have grand plans for photography sessions and get togethers. Though I’m leaving for Singapore later this morning, I’ll try to get back to Sydney soon! 

Out of the many cities and towns we visited last year, there were a select few that Naomi and I really connected with and Hallstattwas definit... more »

Heart of Gold || Manarola 

While I was in Italy working with the +Fstoppers team a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of putting my new Formatt-Hitech Firecrest ND filters to good use in Cinque Terre! I have to say that it’s incredible what kinds of in-camera effects can be achieved when you leave the shutter open for a few minutes at a time. 

This image was captured using a Firecrest 10 stop filter with a long shutter speed of 181 seconds. As you can see, the exposure was long enough to create a really beautiful soft water effect as well as long streaky clouds. Since the sun was just about to touch the horizon at sunset, there was still plenty of soft golden light accumulating on the rocks and the surfaces of the old Italian buildings. It’s a time of day photographers like to call "golden hour" and in my opinion, it can be one of the best moments for longexposu... more »

The Moments Between || Hong Kong Density 

Our fist day shooting in Hong Kong has wrapped up nicely with a awesome upwards perspective on some very colorful and densely populated apartment buildings not too far from downtown. Once it gets dark out and the apartment lights come on, it’s fascinating how much color, texture, and detail there is to capture. I wonder if the people who live here know just how cool this place looks though the lens. 

We were also able to score some awesome DJI Phantom Drone footage before the building manager politely asked us to leave. ;)

Shot (handheld) - Fujifilm X-M1 - 14mm - f/2.8 - ISO 3200 - 1/10th

Singapore Meetup || February 2015

A huge thanks to my friends in Singapore both new and old who helped make our visit a truly memorable experience! We had a wonderful time hanging out with all of you last night and we really appreciate the awesome conversations and great company. 

Singapore has always been one of my favorite places in the world and that’s not just because of the city, it’s because of all the awesome people that live here. Thank you for making us feel so at home! :D

The Moments Between || Vertigo

When I asked Naomi if I could borrow her Fujifilm X-E2 for a shoot last night, I made sure not to mention that I’d be hanging it out of the 42nd floor window of a tower in downtown Singapore. ;)

The Moments Between || SG From Above

It really is great to be back in Singapore! No matter how many times I visit this little city, I always seem to discover awesome new places to explore and photograph. I’ve also been having an awesome time showing the Fstoppers crew some of my all time favorite spots! 

We’ll be shooting in Singapore for a few more days and over the next two months, we’ll also be traveling through Cambodia, Hong Kong and New Zealand, to continue creating a video tutorial that will teach you how to compose and capture beautiful travel, landscape, and cityscape photography while mastering post-processing techniques. For info about the project, early access to the video, as well as a discount, you can sign up for the newsletter by following this link:

Village of Dreams || Austria 

When I posted a photo last week, I said that I could feel that 2015 was going to be an incredible year for travel - which I believe to be 100% true. Unfortunately though, the next day I came down with a nasty virus and the furthest I’ve traveled over the past few days is the few short blocks between the supermarket and my hotel room bed! So yeah, that happened. ;)

The good news is that I’m feeling better now, but the forced downtime is unfortunate and I do apologize for not connecting with everyone in Sydney while I’ve been in town. I really did have grand plans for photography sessions and get togethers. Though I’m leaving for Singapore later this morning, I’ll try to get back to Sydney soon!

Out of the many cities and towns we visited last year, there were a select few that Naomi and I really connected with and Hallstatt was definitely one of them. In fact, just the act of processing this photo flooded me with a series of memories from our time in Austria last fall. I figured that's because I either have a strong emotional connection to Hallstatt or I managed to take way too much NyQuil. Either way, this entire area is just spectacular and the whole time we were there, we couldn’t help but feel totally relaxed and content to just slow things down and enjoy the incredible scenery. I can definitely se myself returning for a second visit in the future.

Double Rainbow over Machu Picchu

A friend and I had an epic morning at Machu Picchu a few months ago.  We had some great light.    Although I don't think this is the best image of the morning, I really love that it is a little different and I always love a double rainbow!   ___Killer shot by +Dan Ballard

Breath of Life || France 

I can feel in my heart that 2015 is going to be a wonderful year for travel and I honestly can’t think of another time in my life where I’ve felt so excited and optimistic about the future. We live in a beautiful world that’s just waiting to be explored and this year, I plan on seeking out new destinations that will challenge my senses and help to propel my photography in new directions. I also plan on post-processing many new images from my five year working archive, like this one from the stunning Provence region of Southern France. 

Naomi and I visited this area last July and we instantly fell in love with the seemingly endless lavender fields. From a photographer’s standpoint, it’s a composition and leading line paradise where the color combinations never cease to impress.

From a travelers eye, it’s almost unbelievable that this place actually exists and that it's fully accessible to anyone who wants to visit. The only guardians to these lovely rows of fragrant lavender are the millions of buzzing bees that fill the air with a soft harmonious hum. 

On a side note, after being stung 4 times, this was also the trip where I confirmed that I’m not allergic to bees, thankfully. ;)

What do 4 cameras, 8 lenses, 2 tripods, 2 ballheads, 24 terabytes of portable hard drives, a Macbook Pro, and iPad 3, a Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet, and a bunch of other photography goodies all have in common? Well, I’m happy to say that they all fit together perfectly into my +Think Tank Photo Photo Airport Commuter Backpack! 

This is the first time in about five years where I’ll be traveling with a single carryon bag. For about the last million air miles, I’ve been happily circling the globe with my roller and shoulder bag combination but this year I wanted to try something new. The Airport Commuter is the first bag I’ve found that’s able to accommodate all my (heavy) carryon gear while still remaining very very comfortable and airline friendly. Over all, it'll be a great fit for 2015.

2014 Year In Review || http://bit.ly/2014-in-review

25 Countries, 85 Cities, 62 Flights, and 179,122 Miles! What an amazing year! 

First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the continued support with comments, likes, plusses, tweets, and shares. It has been an absolute pleasure to share these photos and experiences with all of you and please know that you’ve all helped make 2014 a truly wonderful (and memorable) year.

And now, a toast to 2014 and may 2015 bring each of you closer to your dreams! Here’s to wonderful time ahead!

Last year, when I spoke about 2013, I said that it was the most incredible year to date. Looking back, it’s incredible to see how much our lives have evolved, business has developed, and how the experiences of 2014 have caused me to grow in profound and positive ways. It’sdifficul... more »

Looking back, it’s incredible to see how much our lives have evolved, business has developed, and how the experiences of 2014 have caused me to grow in profound and positive ways. It’s difficult to put into words how much has changed for us this year as we’ve settled into our third year of being 100% location independent. It’s been a wild ride and along the way, 2014 confirmed for me that passion, hard work and dedication will never go unrewarded.

Needless to say, +Naomi Locardi and I traverse the globe quite a bit! Although we managed to take 20 less flights this year as compared to 2013, we also managed to fly 35,000 more miles as well. Looking back, this is directly due to the fact that most of our flights were long hauls averaging between 8 - 12 hours. It’s a good think I love to fly! :D

It’s a time of day photographers like to call "golden hour" and in my opinion, it can be one of the best moments for long exposure photography. During the golden hour, the light is soft enough to not cause harsh shadows but still strong enough to create even and natural illumination. Of course the golden light also does wonders to the color palette, which is a big plus. :)

Happy Holidays from Rome!

I just wanted to take the opportunity to wish everyone a very happy holiday season! As you can see, with Christmas trees all over the city, the holiday decorations in Rome are in full effect. 

+Naomi Locardi and I left Rome yesterday, completing our last series of flights for the year and we’re now in the beautiful Florida Keys with family. I’ll be releasing a big 2014 wrap up post in a few days and just looking quickly at the stats in total, we’ve actually flown nearly 180,000 miles this year. I guess that explains the jet lag, and of course, the coffee addiction! :)

The Moments Between || Saying Goodbye to Rome 

After 19 wonderful days in Italy—nearly two weeks of which have been in Rome— it’s hard to not be sad with the thought of saying goodbye tomorrow. With every visit, Italy always seems to pull me closer and closer. I don’t think I’ll every get tired of spending time here and photographing this beautiful country. 

Even though I’m sad to leave, I’m also excited to be flying to South Florida. Its actually been three years since Naomi and I have spent the holidays with our families so I’m sure we’re going to have a great time. Of course, we’re also bringing back plenty of tasty gifts and bottles of wine, so I’m sure everyone will be happy to see us. ;)

The Moments Between || Feeling at Home

I think it’s safe to say that this particular location needs no introduction. ;)

But, just in case - this is one of my all time favorite shooting locations in the world - from Ponte Unberto in the eternal city of Rome. For the video series with +Fstoppers, I knew this would be the perfect place to teach some advanced shooting and blending techniques.

I have to admit that I was pretty flattered when YouQueen, an online women’s magazine reached out to me for a featured interview. I was even more flattered when I saw the finished title of the post. That’s an extremely kind (and completely exaggerated) compliment. :)

They asked me some really great questions here. I definitely had a lot of fun answering them.

The Moments Between || Riomaggiore 

Riomaggiore in Le Cinque Terre is definitely one of my all time favorite places for photography. It’s also the perfect location to put my RRS Pano Gimbal Head to some good use! 

Today, +Lee Morris, +Patrick Hall, and I spent the day here filming a tutorial about how to use pano gear, correctly calculate the zero parallax point, and capture and stitch seamless panoramic images every time you shoot. I really don’t think we could’ve found a better backdrop for the production. :)

If you want to join me in Italy next May, I’ll be leading an 8 day Italy photo tour that will guide you through some of the most beautiful destinations that this country has to offer including Rome, Tuscany, Florence, and of course, Cinque Terre. 

There are still a few spots left: http://bit.ly/italy-phototour

After nearly two weeks of filming in Iceland, here’s some of the incredible aerial drone footage that we captured along the way. +Lee Morris is an excellent pilot so I’m happy to say that no drones have been harmed in the making of this promo. ;)

On another note, within a week, I'll be announcing 2 Iceland photo tours for 2015! Look out for the registration info soon!

The Moments Between || Majestic Manarola 

I couldn’t be happier to be back in stunning Manarola today, continuing the production for our upcoming photography tutorial with Fstoppers. Planning this project, I knew that this would be the perfect location to demonstrate some awesome shooting and post-processing techniques. In my opinion, locations don’t get much more beautiful than this. :)

The Moments Between || Winter is Epic

Another day in Iceland and another beautiful location to photograph. This time we decided to take advantage of the winter weather and explore one of the the awesome southern ice caves. It was an extraordinary experience and once again, we came away with some killer footage and material. I’m really looking forward to sharing some of it soon! 

A huge thanks to +Naomi Locardi for getting this sweet group shot of us. :)

Over the next few months, we’ll be traveling through Iceland, Italy, Singapore, Cambodia, and New Zealand, to create a video tutorial that will teach you how to compose and capture beautiful travel and landscape photography while mastering post-processing techniques.

With a huge winter storm moving in, we decided to test our luck this this morning before the windy onslaught was set to begin. As you can see, we lucked out with super calm conditions which made the reflections absolutely perfect. Though it was a brief window, we still managed to film everything we needed for a great educational segment. 

Since then, the weather has rapidly been deteriorating and thankfully we’re all setup in the comfort of our hotel rooms. Fingers crossed that this storm leaves behind some snowy conditions. :)

This morning we were treated to an outstanding sunrise at Aldeyjarfoss, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Northern Iceland. The soft colorful light lasted for a solid few hours as we captured some killer content for the upcoming video tutorial. In the process, +Lee Morris captured this awesome silhouette of me as I set my tripod close to the rocky edge. 

We were extra excited about the nice weather today because apparently there’s a big storm coming in tomorrow that’s forecasted to bring 120mph winds and rain! We’ll be taking a short break from filming to seek cover in the south and wait out the storm. Wish us luck! :D

We’re still out here filming for the new Fstoppers tutorial and while we don’t have any food for a Thanksgiving feast, we definitely don’t have a shortage of epic landscapes to explore. I really don’t think we could ask for a better Thanksgiving view! 

Have an awesome holiday everyone!

Eternity || Rome

Sometimes there are moments so beautiful that it would simply be impossible to express them with words. It’s at these times when photography can empower us to capture these moments and transform them into something more tangible - a single image that embodies the soul of our experience. 

These extraordinary moments become even more spectacular when we get to share them with friends. That’s why I love bringing people here for the first time and getting to experience it through their eyes. I get to see the looks of pure joy and wonder as cameras click to capture the colors dancing in the sky above this historical epicenter.

Let’s hope that the weather gods are on our side for our next Italy Photo Tour as well. :)

New Video: Travel Photography and Post-processing Techniques! 

A huge thanks to +B and H Photo for inviting me to speak at the B&H Event Space during Photo Plus Expo a few weeks ago! The entire event was recorded live and I had a great time demonstrating the techniques I use to translate strong emotional elements into my photography. There’s tons of great content here, and if nothing else, there are definitely plenty of colorful images and composite builds to look at. :)

After a few days of unfavorable weather conditions, this morning's sky finally lit up with a colorful display of soft magenta hues. Quite the lucky break considering that today is my last day in Venice! :D

In this shot you can also see my new +Really Right Stuff TQC-14 (light weight and portable) tripod supporting the Fujifilm X-T1. I’ve only had this tripod for a week and I’m already in love with it.

Of course I was inspired by the work of Andy Lee, John Kosmopoulos and Marc Koegel (and so many more) before going to Iceland. It's tough not to shoot for dark monochrome images at the waterfalls, and this is one of many coming your way.

Beyond The Rialto

I’m really stoked to be heading back to Venice next week! November is statistically one of the rainiest months of the year so there’s a good chance for super dramatic skies with beautiful wet street reflections. 

Well, it’s either that or I’ll get completely washed out. In that case, there’s always wine. :)

Black Sand Dance || Iceland

Here, on the black sand beaches of Southern Iceland, I’m consistently fascinated by the wealth of photography opportunities that always seem to present themselves. It’s a place where the conditions can literally change from hour to hour, making each visit a unique and special experience. 

With the release of my new Travel Filter Kit by Formatt-Hitech, I’ve been really focusing on post-processing and releasing more new photos where I’ve used different Neutral Density Filters. 

One of my favorite times to use a 4 Stop ND filter is when I’m working with moving water. In these situations, I can create a nice soft water effect simply by slowing the camera’s shutter speed down to 0.5 – 2.0 seconds. During daylight, a 4 stop ND is usually perfect for achieve this effect.

One of my favorite times to use a 4 Stop ND filter is when I’m working with moving water. In these situations, I can create a nice soft water effect simply by slowing the camera’s shutter speed down to 0.5 – 2.0 seconds. During daylight, a 4 stop ND is usually perfect for achieve this effect.

Overall, I consider the 4 Stop ND filter to be one of the most important tools in my photography kit. Four stops of neutral density is strong enough to slow shutter speeds down just a little bit, while not being dense enough to cause potential issues with the scene. Since four stops is a very light filtering effect, it works in a variety of different lighting scenarios ranging from midday to blue hour and twilight.

If you’re curious about the Travel Filter Kit by +Formatt-Hitech and how I use each of the filters in my photography, I’ve written a detailed post here: http://bit.ly/travel-filter-kit

Seceda

Here is the image from yesterday. For me Seceda was one of the highlights in the Dolomites, and it was also a great source of frustration until I got this one photograph. The cable car from Ortisei takes you to the top, and you only have to walk a few minutes to get this incredible view of the peaks. Now if you want to be there at sunset or sunrise you need to camp, or it’s a very long walk from the nearby town in the valley (7-8 hours one way). We chose to stay in a hut 2 hours from the top. So we took the cable car in the afternoon, walked down to the hut and drop our bags. I then walked up the valley for sunset but there was unfortunately nothing to see. I staid at 3,000m until 11pm to get some star trails. The sky cleared half an hour after sunset but I was only able to get one or two 15 minutes exposures before the clouds came back. I walked down the valley again, ate and slept a few hours in the warmth (it was sub-zero at 3k). At 4am I walked back up with the equipment and set for sunrise, and got nothing again. The fog would be constantly rolling in and I was trying to contain myself, not thinking about how far away I live, how I wouldn't be able to come back any time soon, etc. This is the problem with locations you really want to photograph, you build expectations. By 8am I had given up and started walking down again to get breakfast at the hut with my girlfriend. We then went back up one more time and the fog started to clear, this is the photo you have here. I got a few frames before we decided to go back to town via the cable car. I was a bit bitter, yet somehow lucky, I could also have had a perfectly blue sky for two days, or pouring rain. And I have the single and short star trails shot (identical composition), so I will probably try to post it also.

Landscape photography, you have to be committed… and fit.

Feel free to share.
