Thomas Hawk7,816,897The one and only @111863388502434056486 Guru @103519655975029093996 is coming to town and we are going to celebrate in style.  Join us on Thursday, October 11th for a special dinner / photowalk.   We are going to start the evening off at 5:30pm at Henry Hunan's on Sansome Street in San Francisco (note there are several Henry Hunan's, this is the one on Sansome in North Beach).  We'll enjoy some of San Francisco's best chinese food and then head up to go shoot the tallest building in SF, the Transamerica Building at sunset/dusk.  We'll shoot the building from the Montgomery Street overlook -- one of the best locations to shoot This iconic William Pereira spire from.   Afterwards we'll float around North Beach shooting more of the historic architecture and night life before ending up the night at Specs' Twelve Adler Museum for a few later evening adult beverages.   Specs' is a throwback to old school San Francisco that the SF Weekly describes as "one of the few bars left where you can ask for a martini and get a cold glass of gin and a little vermouth without having to answer a bunch of damn fool questions." Rumor has it the smoothest dude alive @101651096660571767183 will also be joining us from NYC and @105873814765821560444 will be up from Los Angeles.   What a great night for photography this will be.  Come on out for a great G+ Photography evening!A San Francisco Dinner/Photowalk with Gordon Laing2012-10-11 17:30:00136

I'm not ignoring you, I just needed a little social break. Y'know how it is, the noise, the loud music... sometimes you just go sit in the back for a bit so your ears stop ringing. Give yourself a little foot massage.

But I'm back on the dance floor (you didn't even noticed I was gone, did you?)... I've been photographing awesomeness... and a have a really cool blog post coming out tomorrow!

Picture Cove... Lake Tahoe, Nevada
See the water mark lines on the rock to the left? That's where the lake level SHOULD be. But even a body of water as big as Lake Tahoe is feeling the drought! 

The one cool thing about it is getting to venture out on rocks that would normally underwater, for some different perspectives on things...

This was fun... appearing recently on "Creation Wars" with +Tanya Wallis  and +Stuart Davidson. It's an hour long interview/chat... we had a ball! 

Here's the time breakdown, in case you don't wanna sit through the whole thing: 

DA HIGHLIGHTS:
7:13… Question:
“I have heard you say that you think it is important for a photographer to have their own piece of real estate that they can use to try to market themselves or bring extra attention to their efforts. It appears to me that your piece of real estate is your website, and I honestly think that it is one of the best-looking photography websites on the web. How important is it to you to keep it maintained and up-to-date, and do you have any tips for people who want to improve the quality of their site while also gaining more viewers?”

How important is it to you to keep it maintained and up-to-date, and do you have any tips for people who want to improve the quality of their site while also gaining more viewers?”

(I somehow managed to work a true story about a monkey in there too.)

15:35… Question:
“I’m on the hunt for an online sales channel and would like your perspective, thanks!“

18:25… Question:
“Do you find that people go to your website and buy existing work… or do you take on assignments knowing it’ll create a custom print job at the end?”

28:14… We showed some of my recent work from my website

30:25… Question:
“Is there anything you can recommend to people about finding their own style?”

33:08… Peter Giordano, CEO of The Arcanum crashes the party!

35:55… We get into an interesting discussion about critiques and critiquing… and how that space needs to be handled in a particular way. I draw parallels between that and horse training, which isn’t as far-fetched as you might think!

Then we talked about teaching… something near and dear to my heart!

47:02… Question:
“Can you talk a little bit about that variety and diversity you engineered when you chose your cohort?”
(some of you may remember that I was one of the Inception Masters in The Arcanum.)

53:30… Pete Giordano leaves the hangout.

53:35… Question:
“I was wondering if you have any overall plan of how you will apply colour to an image before you start to process it.”

57:45 and 1:00:15… I talk about how I use our textures from “The Inspirarium” to create hues and shifts of light.

1:00:55… We talk about my being a Fuji partner, the blog, newsletters and how all that works.

1:04:10… I show my Really Right Stuff Pano Head and gimbal, explaining a little about how it works. Then show one thing I always have in my camera bag.

Small talk and chit-chat ensues, then we’re outta there!

:D

All I can say is: +Sarah Marino, thank you for creating this lovely list. Especially, thank you for the wonderful insights you offer up beforehand. It's an honor to be included, but more... what a thrill to discover some incredibly talented new (to me) voices I hadn't yet met!

Wow! +Robin Griggs Wood is on fire coming up with amazing ideas! 

I got to hang with her this past weekend at +Trey Ratcliff's photowalk in Los Angeles... she and +Sassi Sassmannshausen did THIS!!

Thank you both with all my heart and angel wings. :D xoxoxo

+Karen Hutton, what a trooper you are! +Sassi Sassmannshausen and I brought a PixelStick to the #TreyUSA  photowalk and during the after-party I asked Karen and +Laurie Rubin if they would be willing to be my models for an experiment: I made wings for them both, for long exposures with the lightstick. I scuttled them outside the hotel and I told Karen, "Ok, these are your wings, especially made for you; be who you would be if you weren't confined by this universe." It didn't take her more than a heartbeat to be her full self ... Karen, the "life is light" lady ... her true self is pure light!

I did say "experiment" above, as this turned out a little blurry because, to get the wings, I made her hold that pose for 13 seconds! So, it's more of an illustration right now ... ;oD. I'll get better at this! 

"Why", you may ask "not just take a shot of Karen quickly and then composite wings behind her?!" ... because ... being around 13 seconds of Karen in all her unbearable-lightenss-of-being awesomeness ... heheh, who could resist? ... ;o)

Thank you for being so wonderful, Karen!___Wow! +Robin Griggs Wood is on fire coming up with amazing ideas!

The Walker Fire near Mono Lake is no laughing matter. It's 2 miles from Lee Vining today...and it looked like this from town on Sunday. This time of year in the mountains can be tense...especially in a drought!

Got plans to visit the area? Keep an eye on the latest at Inciweb: http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/4515/27346/

Not one, not two, but THREE chances to win a Fuji X-T10 kit!! (Actually, it's 2 X-T10's and a X-T1. Details!)

I laid it all out on my blog: http://karenhutton.com/XT10, nice 'n neat in one place. 

My head started swirling trying to schedule all these announcements about contests and chances to win stuff... so I threw up my hands yesterday and put 'em all in one place where you could see them and choose. 'Tis the season, apparently!

Personally, I never choose if I can do it all.

This photo? Yup, it's a 6 or 7 shot pano, stitched together - taken recently with my Fuji X-T10 in Honfleur, France. Now THAT is a place I can't wait to re-visit! [sighsw... more »

Not one, not two, but THREE chances to win a Fuji X-T10 kit!! (Actually, it's 2 X-T10's and a X-T1. Details!)

I laid it all out on my blog: http://karenhutton.com/XT10, nice 'n neat in one place. 

My head started swirling trying to schedule all these announcements about contests and chances to win stuff... so I threw up my hands yesterday and put 'em all in one place where you could see them and choose. 'Tis the season, apparently!

Personally, I never choose if I can do it all.

+Virtual Photo Walks™ is​ featured on PBS Newshour tonight!

I love my work with Virtual Photo Walks (VPW)... I did two of them from Paris recently, one from Las Vegas last week and I plan to bring VPW with me for +Trey Ratcliff's ginormous photowalk in Los Angeles this weekend. For the disabled and homebound, it's a lifeline to the world. For me, it's a way to share the many blessings I've been given in a realtime, global way.

The Stars at Night... somewhere on Hwy. 190 in California.

I'd never call myself an astro or night photography by any stretch of the imagination... I'll leave that to thems that do it well. But, on our drive out of Death Valley the other night, we got a wild hair to stop at a pull off. We were following a nervous driver on a windy roads (translation: they drove reeeeeally sloooooowwwwly. Like, they could've walked faster)... pulling over just felt better.

Then we looked up. There was the Milky Way. Holy crap. It was bright, front and center.

I'll be honest. If I thought I'd be doing this, I'd have brought my Canon 6D and 14mm f/2.8 lens. As it was, I had my Fuji X-T1 and 16-55 f/2.8, which I've never tried this with.

Focusing was definitely a challenge... but the low noise level sure made me smile!

Soul On Fire... Valley of Fire, Nevada 

On this trip to Las Vegas, I finally feel like I get what keeps my friend, the awesome +Barry Blanchard coming back here again and again. Yesterday... HUGE monsoon thunder and lightning storm! Flash floods, the works. By the time we got to VOF, it had cleared off... but the skies... the smells... the colors... siiiiiiiiiigh.

This image: Handheld, Fuji X-T1 with the 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 telephoto lens.

I held my breath. Got still. Pressed the shutter.

I'm so excited my head might explode!
But I'm going to take a breath and try to avert that. [Ommmmmmm...]

Instead, I'm sharing some BIG news... and a new partnership. The whole story is on my blog: http://karenhutton.com/Fujifilm. Mainly because I just can't fit it all in here! (the link below takes you to my newsletter about all this.)

One word: FujifilmUSA. 

[resumes happy dance, begins whirling and suddenly twirls herself off the stage.]

Jumps up and waves at the crowd: "I'm OK! I'm OK!"

Have I defined Helmet for you? 
Ahhhh, I see. It's here; http://karenhutton.com/helmet.

I am definitely Helmet right now. :D

Today, I was a wedding photographer! Trust me, it was a one day only special. 😉

What made it so incredibly special was that it was for my brother-from-another-brother +Barry Blanchard and his gorgeous bride +Traci Furtado.

Do you know hard it is to photograph when you're bawling?? Jeez.

Here, my friends, are the very first images ever of Mr. & Mrs. Barry Blanchard. It was a privilege and a good, good day.❤️💞🎉💝😘👌😄👍

Pink Sky, Blue Water... Lake Tahoe, Nevada
On a warm, warm blue hour evening, with strains of  orchestral music and beautiful singing drifting across the water (obviously a performance going on at Sand Harbor across the way)... I wedged myself in between two granite boulders, set up my long exposures and sighed. 

Evenings like this make everything right.

So, how much less weight DOES my Fuji System pack, when compared to my DSLR rig? I've been asked that a BUNCH now!

Honestly, that depends upon where I am (like, Paris or the Sierra Nevada Mountains!). I carry different set ups for different purposes.

But one easy side-by-side measuring can be done with each one in full landscape mode. So I did that, just to see. Every camera, every lens, backpacks suitable for each, nothing else.

Weights, measures... it's all on my blog today: http://karenhutton.com/7pounds.

And ya know what? 7 pounds may not SEEM like a lot to you... but it's been life-saving and life-changing for me!!

So there I was, shooting something else entirely... on entirely different settings... when these geese took off with great, poetic fanfare.

And this is what happens when you take the picture anyway. A lovely poetic capture, all dreamy and impressionistic. 

It's like nature photography, Isadora Duncan style. HeeHee.
Makes me happy. :D

I went a little crazy on this one... it's something like a 19-image panorama, which I made BEFORE I got my +Really Right Stuff (I call it the ONLY right stuff!) pano head and gimbal. Now multi-row photos like this are easy... but with my regular RRS tripod and ballhead took some sweet-talkin' to get all lined up and lookin' purty.

Taken with my Fuji X-T10 and 16-55mm lens. 
I do loves me some awesome forest light and geeky fun gear. :D

Picture Cove... Lake Tahoe, Nevada
See the water mark lines on the rock to the left? That's where the lake level SHOULD be. But even a body of water as big as Lake Tahoe is feeling the drought!

The River Bus... Paris, France
I miss Paris! I've been saying that since 2010... you'd think nearly a month in France would cure me. Mais non! But at least now I have a ton of photos to go through and experience it all over again. 

This is the Seine River near La Concierge... with an Autobus making its way. You can buy a ticket, then hop on-hop off all day long! It's a fun way to see travel between sights. 

Speaking of "Autobus"... I always say it the way Leelu in "The 5th Element" said "Bada-bing, Bada-BOOM". Did you ever see that movie. One of my faves. :D

The wondrous Valerie Millett is guest editing right now over at +500px ... and chose this image of mine as one of her Editor's Picks! I'm humbled, because she is AMAZING.

I made this crazy image at Yosemite some years back, just wanting to try something totally different; I got a notion to see if I could make a photo look like a feeling. (Hey, I've done stranger things!)

Personally, I've always loved it, but it's definitely not mainstream.
So a huge thank you to the Divine Ms. M and 500px!

Bonsai In the Light... Lake Tahoe, Nevada 
Hey, I take the "typical" shots of certain iconic spots like Bonsai Rock... because people identify with them. So do I! But then I'll always snoop around for a different story.

Kind of like when you drive through a cool neighborhood at night and someone has their living room curtains open - and snoop-t-doo, you can see inside. Admit it... you check it out and imagine what it's like to live there.

Or am I the only one who does that? Bueller? Bueller?
(I know I'm not!)

So this was that, only of a famous rock and its resident bonsai tree one afternoon at Lake Tahoe.

CONGRATULATIONS ALL OVER THE PLACE +Trey Ratcliff and Peak Design Team!! WooHOOOO!!! What a huge undertaking... what a huge step accomplished!

Wow - people really like this bag!! (I was secretly hoping!!)

Thanks everyone! In the HOUR 3 we doubled our goal over at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com/links/kickstarter !  Congrats to the amazing team at Peak Design and THANK YOU.  

Peter just popped up VIDEO #2 there on the page. It really gets into the dirty details of everything about the bag and should answer 99% of your questions.  I had a GREAT time working on the bag with the team and learned a ton. I went into this thinking that I was a Bag Expert. I wasn't... just had a lot of floaty opinions... but now, 11 months later, well, maybe I am! :)  To see the new Video #2, float on over to http://www.StuckInCustoms.com/links/kickstarter  ___CONGRATULATIONS ALL OVER THE PLACE +Trey Ratcliff and Peak Design Team!!

I'm not ignoring you, I just needed a little social break. Y'know how it is, the noise, the loud music... sometimes you just go sit in the back for a bit so your ears stop ringing. Give yourself a little foot massage.

But I'm back on the dance floor (you didn't even noticed I was gone, did you?)... I've been photographing awesomeness... and a have a really cool blog post coming out tomorrow!

(Continuing from my last post)...and if you do follow your muse's urgings to feel the sun on your face instead of the sickly glow of your computer screen, you might be treated to some ACTUAL magic??

Got it.

This is amazing guitarist +Adrian Bellue, here at Tahoe with his awesome photographer +Jason Sinn for a sunset photo shoot. I was just out trying to find a new angle on Bonsai Rock...and, voila!

There's more to the story, but for now, enjoy a little iPhone video snippet from one magical evening!

Flex... Le Foyer of the Paris Opera House, Paris

It was pure magic. Stumbling onto a scene out of a movie... as they were getting ready to MAKE a movie! (story here: http://karenhutton.com/opera)

Dancers sweeping elegantly across the floor in Le Foyer of the Palais Garnier in Paris is some of what dreams are made of. And there I was, by pure "luck" (which I don't actually believe in, BTW)... photographing away as it all unfolded before my eyes. 

I love details in moments like this. Having been a dancer and figure skater, I know what this feels like. And why you do it... and will forever and always admire ballet dancers for their extreme dedication and damn flexibility! heh. 

Fuji X-T1, 55-200mm lens. ISO 6400.

A brand new piece and recent heart capture of a place that I love so much. I'm linking to it on my blog below...

It's a 9-or-something pano... and feels like a warm hug to me. A really, really big hug!

I went to Paris for the first time 5 years ago. Ever since I've wanted to return in the spring. Talked about it. Thought about it. Obsessed about it. When my friend +Valerie Jardin  dangled her Paris Street Photography Workshop in front of me last year... that was it. I HAD TO GO!! She absolutely started that Paris Trip train. And the rest... well, the rest changed my life. More on that upcoming on my blog! For today though...

Valerie has an awesome podcast called Street Focus over on +This Week in Photo (TWiP)  It's all about street photography and it's fantastic! She had me on as her guest recently... and we chatted about what the whole "landscape photographer turns street photographer" experience was really like...
