Gailen Mapes61,933Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  G-H - 5 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 Mapes2014-04-05 13:33:141719212CC G+

Dustin W. Stout34,995The Most Interesting Ladies On Google+!Part 5 of my #circlesplosion  series has finally arrived! If you're not familiar with Circlesplosion be sure to read about it here: dustn.tv/circlesplosion/After sorting through 500 comments and over 1,000+mentions I have finished curating this circle of the Most Interesting Ladies on Google+! And by "ladies" I mean it in the highest regard with the utmost respect. These are women who are exceptional examples of leadership, inspiration, encouragement, entertainment, and just plain fun! This list was carefully curated with intentional attention to thoughtful recommendations, interaction, and engagement. Though I don't know all of them (yet) I am confident that they are absolutely worth adding to your own circles! I will also not that this circle is incredibly diverse-- artists, doctors, business women, entrepreneurs, bloggers, crafters, geeks (self-proclaimed), writers, trainers, and women who are awesome for a whole lot of reasons. What to do with this circleAdd this circle and take some time to monitor the stream over the next week. Find those that you really connect with or are inspired by and add them to another of your relevant circles. Do so until you believe you've added everyone of relevance and interest to you and then delete this circle (unless of course you just want to keep it-- that's fine too). I hope you make some great connections, I know I have already. And be sure to let me know in the comments below what you'd like to see the next #circlesplosion   project to be. :D #sharedcircles   #ns  2014-02-21 18:43:1925810076128CC G+

Gailen Mapes57,765Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera G-H - 5 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 Mape2014-01-05 11:29:441466410CC G+

Zvonimir Fras17,307101 Amazing PhotographersI don't usually share circles of my own......this is a special occasion, since I've gathered 100 photographers who's work I really like.It took me more than a year, and many of them came to my attention when I started managing +Stunning Moment alongside +Alycia Miller.Some of them are extremely popular with millions of followers, and some of them have less than 10 or 100 followers.Some are very active on G+, some are mostly active on other sites.If you're into photography (and you are if you're seeing this post) this is the circle you want to add ;)Feel free to share this with each and every photography-lover you know, they will thank you ;)Please tell me if you think I missed someone!

That Magical Academy of Artistic Mastery home office, New Zealand
The beta version of +The Arcanum has launched!  I'm working with my first group of Apprentices and they are AMAZING. 

The timing couldn't be worse - and the experience couldn't be better! The Grand Dichotomy strikes again! It's been SUCH a huge deal for me on so many levels, that I've made a two-part blog post my experience so far. It appears today and tomorrow over at: http://blog.karenhutton.com. 

I've been a teacher for 35 years. Equestrian sports, horse training, figure skating, dance, acting, voice - pretty much everything I've ever done. 

Being a Master in The Arcanum is a whole other thing - and it requires some new thinking. And ya know what? I LOVE IT! I'd gotten burnt out on teaching after so many years. Stepped away. Pursued myown ar... more »

Those Warm Memories of You... Truckee, California
taken with my iPhone5, processed in Snapseed & Google+ editing tools

This was from my walk today. I was in a mood to walk long and only carry my iPhone for a camera. Hey, +Kalebra Kelby does it and ROCKS it... I wanna be more like her! heehee!

Then I was in the mood to process, but wanted to keep it simple. No downloading photos, no fussy Photoshop, no mincing about in Lightroom, none 'o that. I whip out Snapseed and do the basics on the phone (cuz  I can't see everything - it's too small!)  ... then finish it up with those rockin' Google+ photo editing tools right before I post. Slam, bam, thank YOU ma'am... done! 

Ahhhhh, I feel complete.

Purple FanGlow... Santa Cruz, California

Happy Easter everyone!
And if you don't celebrate Easter... Awesome Sunday!

Did I ever tell you the story of how they made us make Easter hats in grade school with a paper pie plate? We had to spray paint it purple, decorate it, run a ribbon through it, then wear that stupid thing in an Easter parade.

Horrifying! Scarred me for life!
But it did give me "character", as my mother was fond of saying. 

This photo brought it all back.
hehe.

Video Tutorial!
So, the folks over on my blog have asked me to share some post-processing tips. I don't do a ton of these... I talk about part of why that is on my blog: http://bit.ly/1eI1tpb.

See, I'm not a complete Photoshop guru like some of the folks around here!  But I decided it was valid to make a video that retrospectively walks through some thoughts and layers. 

Mostly I meant for this to show what I was going for, why I did it - and maybe it'll give you a few ideas to try on your own!

I've got a new photo processing video on my blog today: http://bit.ly/1eI1tpb!

It was one that was requested by my peeps over there - and I finally found the time to git 'er done. I love doing these things once they're actually finished, but still have anxiety about doing them! It seems so silly to feel that way.

I always seem to be the one that isn't satisfied with technique. I always have to go deeper, find the motivation, the meaning, the inner world of everything. I mean EVERYTHING! It's always been that way in my life. So when it comes to responding to requests to share how I do what I do... especially anything with anar... more »

Sunset Divided... Lake Tahoe
With the grace of a dancer, lady sunset gave it her all,
her final breath settling upon the water in a gentle caress.
In moments, it was all over. Never to repeated.
Tomorrow; a new performance,
offering some new and marvelous variation on a timeless ending. 
------------------------------------------------------------------
Had a travel day today... got home just in time to wave good bye to the sun. Ready to settle in and get ready for new and eventful day upon the morrow! ;)

How do you define Success for yourself - and how will you know when you've attained it?

On my blog today, (http://bit.ly/1jFEni3), I open a conversation about Success. It's one of my favorite questions.

I think it's an important one to answer -  especially for us creative people. I asked +Scott Kelby this question in my most recent episode of The Chat (check it out in its entirety on my blog here: http://bit.ly/1mXS0MR or over on Scott's blog here: http://bit.ly/1iODHVv ).

I made it a 2-part query... in this clip, he answers the Business half. The Personal side went even deeper... and has made an impact on so many people who've seen it so far. Including me!

Stroll on down the street whilst some crazy American takes a picture of your backside, then goes home to make up a story about you... Oh, very Check.

Different camera, location, subject matter, intent... and that was the whole point. I talk about this in more depth on my blog, but basically... sometimes you gotta break patterns, so's you don't fall into a rut.

I'm talking photographically here, but really, it's true across the board.

On the Rocks... Lake Tahoe, Nevada
Ummmm, yeah, that's me... perching amongst the rocks to "git the shot". The hubs +Joe Dolister took this one... he's always lurking around, keeping an eye on me when I go clambering about looking for JUST the right angle. That's when we go out together - I just don't tell him what I do when I'm by myself. Shhhhh!

You can't quite tell from this photo - but the drop mere inches to my right was straight down to the water a couple of hundred feet... to my front and left it was more about splattering on the granite. I chose to do neither, but rely on my skater/dancer training to put my feet in juuuuust the right place on the way down. 

If only I could levitate... ;)

The sign came, as she'd been told it would, at a surprising moment. 
Luckily, she was schooled to hold no expectations...
but instead, be ready to move to the breath of the divine.

I've always loved this photo - and remember the night well. 
1 a.m. Silent. No wind. I'd crawled a half mile over the snow to this spot, now huddling in the cold as I waited for the exposures to finish, my breath nearly freezing as it left my mouth. 

Pause. 
Smile.
Giggle...
Guffaw!

OK, it WAS 1 a.m. And it was COLD!
But my car was warm, which is where I sat with my heater on while my camera ran through its long exposure paces outside the driver's side window.

For the other one, I used a +Genustech  Eclipse ND Variable filter to create the misty, smooth vibe. For this one though,  I went all panorama HDR.

Alice Herz-Sommer was the oldest living survivor of the Holocaust. She died this year at 110 years old.

That’s notable all by itself, but is not entirely why I felt moved to make a post on my blog today about her. (which is here: http://bit.ly/1iqFdeY)

It’s her relationship with music, which moved me to tears when I watched this video. Not tears of sadness, mind you… but the ones that happen when I hear or see something SO RIGHT that my soul practically leaps to the heavens. It’s like a visceral response to Divinity. That’s Alice for you.

She makes me want to let go more, live life more fully, love more than I ever thought possible... and express it all through my own art of photography... which is always, always scored to music that plays in my head.

Wings... Truckee, California
She thought the wings were a nice touch that night - and giggled at
the idea that she could fly away on a lake.

Whether you're in a New York subway, standing by the ocean or just hanging facing a beautiful a sunset - it's always a good idea to keep an eye out behind you. 'Cause ya just never know when you'll be surprised! 

My wish for you: May those surprises always be pleasant ones. :D

Coming up this Wednesday: The Chat with +Scott Kelby!!
Here's a taste from this fabulous upcoming episode... which I talk a bit about on my blog today: http://bit.ly/1oHABKd. 

To say that I'm excited about this week's episode of The Chat is a ridiculous understatement! Everything about this episode was such a revelation to me; from experiencing the behind-the-scenes magnificence of the cast and crew of Kelby Media, to having my own little set built and lit by them... to the incredibly personal journey that Scott shared in this episode. This is one that I'll never forget!

In this clip, Scott talks about teaching is a calling. He feels it's one that you're born with. And if you're called, it's part of your soul.

Once More Before I Go... Lake Tahoe, Nevada

This was my final parting shot from last night's "welcome home" photo shoot.

I've been away from my mountain home a fair amount lately - and I just got back. So I headed out yesterday to breathe some air and see a sky about a sunset. I was not disappointed!

I love going places, seeing people, having new experiences. But there's just nothing like coming back home to the Sierra Nevada mountains to put it all in context. Ahhhhhh. 

This was the fond farewell I received from my spot on a rock high above Lake Tahoe... like a soft kiss on the cheek. ;)

Shark Finery... California Coast
Arrr, matey! Beware the Shark Fin
On my blog: http://bit.ly/1i7DXgR

I know the whole pirate "Arrrr" thing is a total myth... but my imagination still runs quietly wild at the name "Shark Fin Cove". This is standing high above that spot on the California coast.

It was sunset, after a storm... and the ocean was crashing and booming like crazy. I even jumped once or twice! (I'm a mountain girl at heart... experiencing heaving seas crashing on land with great thunderous concussion is unsettling to my nerves.)

Perhaps it was my desire to calm things down a little that made me pull out my cool little GenusTech Eclipse filter (sayeth she who sayeth 'Nay!" to most filter activity) to smooth it all out. Or maybe I just wanted to work against the obvious. In any case, I liked the... more »

Knight Light... Calistoga, California
The Knight Light: for that extra layer of protection while you sleep.
Heh.

I have a brand new image on my blog today: http://bit.ly/1i7DXgR. 

As for this one: 
On our recent visit to +Castello di Amorosa, the hubs +Joe Dolister and I had a chance to photograph in The Armory. Woot! Me loves medieval armor and weapons. Not so much the warring part of it... more because people actually fit in these metal suits, hand crafted and used all these tools and weapons.. the very human imprint of people having BEEN there is everywhere. I could spend hours and hours looking at all the details, imagining the lives and personalities of those who created every rivet, every bit of scrollwork.

So real and so Hollywood, all at the same time!

Takeoff... 4 Mile Beach, Santa Cruz, California
On my blog today: http://bit.ly/1lyF0go.

How to turn a "Meh" day into a "YEAH!" one?
Focus on the locals.
----------------------------------------------------
The light wasn't that exciting. I wasn't feeling that inspired. Until I focused on "the locals", as I like to call them. In this case, the sea gullible birds who live here.

Suddenly, it got a lot more interesting, with a plethora of possibilities springing to life before my eyes! 

If you're stuck, sometimes it's a matter of changing your "eye-set" (think; mindset for your eyes). Maybe that means shooting something other than what you always do. Or shooting from a different angle, with a different DOF. 

Whatever the case... it's fun to make yourte... more »

Out having some photo fun with +Nicole S. Young! Sunset's not looking like it's gonna make much of a splash (pun intended)...but it sure is great being out with a pal for some hang time!

Glow O'clock in the Afternoon... Big Sur, California
Ooo, I'd love to stay and hear the rest, really I would but...

Yes, I know that's cheap, cheesy humor.

You know know which one you are. :D

TGIF everyone!!

And for those who are already halfway through Saturday... have a great weekend!!

Barreling Down Under... Calistoga, California
The full story on this one on my blog today: http://bit.ly/1dyQzBG.

I had a chance to visit +Castello di Amorosa again last weekend... this time got to bring the hubs! He's heard allllll about it... and you know how that is. You feel like; "Enough already! I want to see this joint for myself!"

Suffice it to say, he was NOT disappointed! Neither was I, because  this time, we had the opportunity to see parts of the underground world of the Castle I hadn't laid eyes on before... the armory, the torture chamber (yes, there is one!) and this spot; one of the many wine cellars you can get lost in. What with the vaulted ceilings and totes authentic stonework, I felt like I was right back in beautiful Italy! 

The place is like eye candy everywhere you turn... and I've got afe... more »

Mittens on the Rise... Monument Valley, California
This is one half of "The Mittens"; a pair of buttes in Monument Valley, AZ. 

I guess technically, this would be the right mitten, given where the thumb is and all. 

In any case, I wanted to applaud the sunrise that morning. Seriously! Partly because it was so crazy gorgeous... and partly because it made getting up at ungodly o'clock completely worthwhile. You have no idea how much that meant to me! hehheh.

I wonder what two Mittens clapping would sound like?

Oh - and the geeky tech story?

The Chat with +Tamara Lackey is now live!
On my blog today: http://bit.ly/1hYf4oO. 

To say that she's a human dynamo is understating the impact of my guest on The Chat today. +Tamara Lackey  is a photographer, author, speaker, teacher, host, wife, mom, thinker, seeker. And that's before breakfast!

Although we'd met briefly at Photoshop World last fall... this was my first time to sit down with Tamara, have a chat and get to know her. Now I wish we lived next door to each other!  She's as genuine, talented, beautiful, engaged and passionate about what she does as they come... and truly brings it all to this episode. 

We met up after her "Photographers at Google" talk in Mountain View, California, right there on the Google Campus. We set up outside for a Chat that was all at once funny, heartfelt,insi... more »

Shy Like Mist... New Zealand
She was shy. Like mist.
Equally as susceptible to the wind.
---------------------------------------------
You know who's NOT shy? That would be +Tamara Lackey, my awesome guest who's up TOMORROW on THE CHAT!

Find it on my blog: http://blog.karenhutton.com
and right here on my stream!

Tamara is fun, funny, smart, incredibly prolific in everything she does. I've started referring to her as  a "force of nature", because that's just how she seems to me! I'm a fan now, you better believe it. ;)

I chatted with her when she was out in California for her Photographers At Google talk... what a blast!

It's all coming up TOMORROW!

2 Halves of the Same Picture... Lake Tahoe, Nevada
(On my blog today: http://bit.ly/1iuHdWv)

I got a wild hair to make this panorama photo. On this particular evening, I was pretty much done photographing the angles I wanted on a single frame... but wondered what it would look like all pano'd. Plus, all the cool kids are doing them - and I wanted to see what all the hoopla was about.

Let me get one thing straight: I don't profess to be an expert panoramist! In fact, this one is only comprised of 4 images - which is almost laughable by some of the experts' standards. But hey, the scene lent itself to that... and I really just wanted to experiment. 

I shot the images vertically with my 14mm, stitched them together using Photo Merge in Photoshop CC. Did some clean up, a little processing and called it good. ("GOOD!") ... more »

Intersections of Place & Time... Napa Valley, California
On my blog: http://bit.ly/1qWm7oq

Her eyes softened as the memories swirled.
The repeating lines seemed to morph;  like wrinkles in time.
She saw Then and Now in the same moment.  
It made her smile. And feel wistful. And full of feelings she couldn't name.
This was an intersection of place and time...
One that was more of a "show" than a tell. 
---------------------------------------------------------------
On my blog, I 'splain my thinking on this one... why I shot what I did out of this whole grand vista that spread out before me... and why the heck I processed it this way. 

Visiting Sonoma and Napa counties is always like going home... because Glen Ellen (Sonoma Valley) WAS home for many, many years. My parents had a ranch there for 35year... more »

Graveyard

I can only imagine what this place looked like 50 years ago, all those other mangroves would have looked awesome when still standing.

Hopefully I will get to revisit this location at low tide soon which will create an entire different feel to the images.

Written in the Sky... Truckee, California
Once, on a completely unexpected pop quiz,
(of course "unexpected" is the point of a pop quiz, now isn't it?)
she went blank on the answer. 
She gritted her teeth.
She hadn't missed one yet, dangit, she wasn't about to now.
Thought hard. 
Nothing.
Harder. 
Nothing. 
Glanced out the window at the sunset... and there it was. 
Spelled out plain as day; exactly what she needed to know.
Aced the quiz. 
Never forgot.
------------------------------------------
Hey, so this one's on my blog here: http://bit.ly/Nxs2Aq. I talked a bit about anticipating a good sunset and finding the right spot to capture it. (Hint: it has to do with your feet!)

Pretty simple stuff... but life is like that sometimes. :D
