Alan Shapiro2,985,115I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making the best bags in the world.)Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0081

Gailen Mapes71,115Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera 5 - 11 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.2014-11-11 11:53:11177003

Gailen Mapes68,908Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 11 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-11 11:21:21182217
Dubie Bacino107,050Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (12th 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. If what you are looking for is to grow your audience, expand your reach on Google+ and connect with people on other social networks, I also recommend joining their community at http://bit.ly/1f6AUpH.MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

My echeveria entourage woke me this morning and collectively told me to get my ass outta bed, grab my camera and to get lost for a while. So I'm off. I sure could use the sleep but I could use getting lost far more. Seeya. Happy Sunday.

It seemed as if he were trying to erase a lifetime of hurt with a single kiss

I wanted to ask about the writing on his hand and scar on his neck but resisted for some reason...perhaps there is more power in the wondering than the truth.

Among us: Joe McNally
It started with a black and white photo of a homeless man sleeping on a bench. I doodled a pair of angel wings on top of the image in Photoshop while thinking about this overlooked person and wondering if he would be more "seen" if he were perceived as being heaven sent.  Would the myriad of passers by notice more if an "angel" were among us? I titled the piece "fallen" and was taken aback by the comments as I shared it across my social networks.
   The concept of angels has always intrigued me; even more so as I envisioned them walking among us. Does heaven truly exist as (hopefully) our ultimate destination or do we make our own heaven here on earth? And if so, are we working hard enough to make this happen?

   The concept of angels has always intrigued me; even more so as I envisioned them walking among us. Does heaven truly exist as (hopefully) our ultimate destination or do we make our own heaven here on earth? And if so, are we working hard enough to make this happen?
This line of thinking has now led to an ongoing project where I ask a random person (or in this case, a world renowned and respected icon and hero of mine) to put on a pair of large, weighty angel wings and pose for me in public. I find that the mere act of putting the wings on has a transformative effect as the weight and responsibility takes hold. The other dynamic that I find fascinating is the reaction of the passers by. Some remain oblivious while others undergo a transformation themselves. The best part is when people (cautiously or brazenly) approach me to take on this most heavenly and exalted of roles.
   Are there angels among us? My answer is "Absolutely." I have seen them firsthand.

Thank you, +Joe McNally

I have some sort of flu (my government assures me it's not Ebola) and have been dealing with non-stop shivering despite being doused in sweat. I decided to pull out my laptop and do some post processing if only to distract myself from the oncoming waves of nausea. This fine fellow was processed in Lightroom and then taken over to Photoshop for a little playing in AnalogEfexPro2 from the #nikcollectionbygoogle  as well as the addition of a few of my own textures for good measure. 
Is there a right or wrong way to do this sort of processing? Absolutely not. Only that which results in a smile when you are done (or additional hallucinations and soft mewling sounds.)

Stay inspired. (And stay hydrated)

Another day, another vet recounting too many battles and nowhere near enough victories.
I met Richard a few years ago on my morning walk to my office. He had set up a small oasis and was napping. I was across the street and saw some youths approach him with questionable intent. He woke as I was telling them to leave. He looked at them, sprang to his feet and started a hobbling, slow motion run at them. They laughed and walked away. I stayed.

Richard at the time was 87 years old (the previous Tuesday was his birthday, which he spent in a New Jersey VA hospital). He served in WWII under Patton (way under Patton...but the pride never left his voice as he talked about their victories). We spoke about his life in the military. His new life in the shelter. And the girls at the Hooters in Times Square who bring him chili and soup late at night after their shifts are over. We talked and... more »

And the girls at the Hooters in Times Square who bring him chili and soup late at night after their shifts are over. We talked and talked and I took picture after picture while too many people walked by wondering about the interaction; not sure whether it was the moments of boisterous laughter or the painful moments of silence as he shared the more tragic parts of his life in short story form while I fought the waves of despair. At one point he asked whether I needed to get to work and I told him this was far more important. I was not lying. 

I have a special place for Veterans. I never served but I do have a profound appreciation for those that have and those that serve to this very day. For me, it's a very special and moving privilege to meet them and listen. I remember hearing a fact at last year's Veteran's Day Celebration that a full one quarter of all US Veterans are homeless at one point in their lives. Perhaps that number has changed in the year but I am not an eternal optimist.

I am now reliving our conversation and once again feel both incredible despair and joy: despair at the sad reality that touches me so deeply. And joy at the positive memory when Richard agreed to have dinner with me that evening and the stories that followed stories. With his permission, I promised to not let them go unheard.

Don't spare change. Make change.

   If a photographer falls alone in the street and there's no one there to hear him, does he make a sound?

Day six of my five day split toning adventures (but rather than start with a pure monochrome image, I started with a somewhat desaturated one. Give it a try...
Highlights: 52/73
Shadows: 360/20

Well, at least the trash has a roof over it's head.

Don't spare change. Make change.

Practicing monochrome processing on Zoe and her curls. She is one of my favorite mini models.Working on all sorts of presets, recipes and formulas  across all my favorite post processing tools to share.

In this case, practice doesn't make perfect. It makes for all sorts of glorious mistakes, beautiful accidents and helpful tidbits to share.

Stay inspired.

Don't get me wrong; I love my Speedlites. But I'll choose synchronized fireflies every time.

So there I was with my shopping cart in a parking lot humming a mashup of Copland's Fanfare to a Common Man and Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody (it totally worked) when this happened...

I have the best job in the world (two if I count my new second career as a photographer)
Every day, I have the privilege of working with some incredibly talented, dedicated and wonderful people. My job brings me an unbelievable amount of joy and these folks are a huge part of why. To quote my colleague Ab Sesay, "Teamwork makes the dreamwork."
Amen.

My roadtrip yesterday took me way upstate to a very zen place (literally and figuratively). There was a very beautiful river filled with so many beautiful stones and as I walked among them, I listened for the ones that called out to me. While gathering the most delightful stones, the babbling of the river turned into our conversations. Having seen many Inuksuks (Inuksuit), I decided to build my own in your honor overlooking a beautiful turn in the river for you to gaze on and (hopefully) smile. 

PS. You are way more beautiful in real life.

My echeveria entourage woke me this morning and collectively told me to get my ass outta bed, grab my camera and to get lost for a while. So I'm off. I sure could use the sleep but I could use getting lost far more. Seeya. Happy Sunday.

Was up way too late. Insomnia.
Went looking for a dahlia. Or zinnia. Or petunia. Or gardenia. Or begonia. (Consonance is very important to the sleep-deprived)
Then this rose came out of nowhere to keep me company.
Started thinking of the best places in the world to have insomnia: 
Transylvania won (obviously) over Tasmania and Patagonia.
