No matter if you are a solopreneur or part of a larger business, there is value for you with the Hangouts & HOA tools from Google… especially in the way it connects automatically with YouTube and creates videos for us on the fly. You’ve seen it in action with our #TNTBootcamp  series, now we’ll dig into the reasons why this tool has become so popular, some good and not so good uses of it and we’ll get to chat a bit about Ronnie’s brand new *Hangout Training Product* just launched at http://AllAboutHangouts.com/launch-special @108210288375340023376 has been a software trainer for many years and that shows when he does his hangout presentations. Those that are part of his *Hangout Mastery* membership can attest to the training skills and value he brings to that private community. Many of us have learned a thing or two (or more!) from him via his helpful public shows and public postings. And now for the first time, there is a structured training product he has created so we can get the best hangout training around on our own schedule. He likes to say it takes you from Hangout Basics to Total Hangout Confidence. *Watch Previous Episodes* YouTube Playlist (Season 1): http://bit.ly/1mV7BJY  YouTube Playlist (Season 2): http://bit.ly/1xLqchs Flipboard by @115091224082668507135: http://flip.it/BrEMe  #TNTBootcamp airs every 3rd Monday at 11:30am PT / 2:30pm ET Please RSVP 'YES' to be added to our invite list. #hangoutsonair #hangoutmastery #hangouts #hangoutsforbusiness   #TNTBootcamp - Ronnie Bincer2015-01-19 20:30:00180

Donegal Photowalk 2014220Here is the official Event for the 2014 Donegal Photowalk. The kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am, however,  there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Some of us will even be there already on Thursday and Friday. (A good place to find the earlybirds is probably the local bar scene).  Please note that you don't have to confirm a booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points soon.  We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option.  Cheers Athena, John & AndyDonegal Photowalk 20142014-09-27 09:00:0029

Alan Shapiro3,137,947I'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.

Donegal Photowalk 2014220Here is the official Event for the 2013 UK Seaside Photowalk. The official kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am. Then again, there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure.  Please indicate whether you will be joining us, so we have a rough idea of how many people we can expect. Please note that this is not a confirmed booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points in a few weeks.  We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option.  Cheers Athena & AndyUK Seaside Photowalk2013-10-05 09:00:0070

Gailen Mapes78,655Note: next month this circle will be split. *Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 30*Note: 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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.2015-02-14 12:33:02215001

Gailen Mapes73,565Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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.2014-12-14 12:07:07194000

Fragments of Enquiry

This is the title of my next photography exhibition, debuting on March 21 at the GRAAL gallery in Pavia, Italy.

We selected and printed 18 of my best and most artistic photos. There is a thin–but evident–theme underlying these images, but I don't want to influence the viewer with my subjective and biased interpretation, so I'll just leave it at that.

To those who are local or reasonably close, I extend an invitation to join me on the inauguration day, Saturday March 21, at 6.30PM, or on one of the following days.The exhibit is open until April 5.

Is there a grain of truth in this or is it unnecessarily dismissive?

"Often black and white is used by photographers to make perfectly normal situations heavy and depressing and often black and white photographers are not able to shoot in color because they don’t have the eye for it."

– Ton Koene

Cinque Terre, Spring 2015

Like five diamonds on a crown, the five villages of the Cinque Terre adorn the wildest part of the Italian Riviera. Precariously perched between the mountains and the sea and hard to reach, they managed to escape development and urbanization and preserve their ancient character.

A national park and a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Cinque Terre combine rugged mountain landscape and romantic seascapes, punctuated by small villages of colorful houses. The views that the coastline offers are breath-taking and pristine, with the warm colors of the buildings providing a nice contrast with the deep blue of the sea and the greens of the Mediterranean vegetation that blankets the land.

In The Alleyways Of Soho

I spent much of yesterday stepping out of my comfort zone in London, first in Soho then around St. Paul, while attending a Street Photography workshop.

We played with motion blue, panning, intentional camera movement, extreme angles, shooting fashion in the middle of crazily busy Oxford Street on a Saturday afternoon, up and down the subway escalators, up and down St.Paul's staircase.

Manual exposure, manual focus, fixed ISO for the most part was definitely a challenge. Having to tackle all the variables while minding composition and expression and trying not to be ran over by a double-decker bus was even more of a challenge, but it was a ton of fun.

For the most part, I shot in RAW, but had the camera preset to B&W, following Our instructor's advice to concentrate on exposure and framing, rather than color. I am now... more »

In The Alleyways Of Soho

I spent much of yesterday stepping out of my comfort zone in London, first in Soho then around St. Paul, while attending a Street Photography workshop.

We played with motion blue, panning, intentional camera movement, extreme angles, shooting fashion in the middle of crazily busy Oxford Street on a Saturday afternoon, up and down the subway escalators, up and down St.Paul's staircase.

Manual exposure, manual focus, fixed ISO for the most part was definitely a challenge. Having to tackle all the variables while minding composition and expression and trying not to be ran over by a double-decker bus was even more of a challenge, but it was a ton of fun.

For the most part, I shot in RAW, but had the camera preset to B&W, following Our instructor's advice to concentrate on exposure and framing, rather than color. I am now processing many of the images into B&W, but the backdrop in this one was too good not to keep it in color.

I even managed to snap a few decent pictures, amidst a ton of blurry, unsharp and badly composed ones, so you can expect a flurry of them in the next few days. If you came here for landscapes, tough luck, but I pride myself in specializing about not specializing.

Unmistakably London

I've been up since 4AM, walked so much that my feet are sore and my legs are aching. I still have a two hour flight ahead and the drive home, but I had a great day at A street fashion workshop.

Sell Prints. Print Money. It Sounds Easy.

Apparently, this is the bash-Peter-Lik week. I happened onto a New York Times article this morning. It is not charitable at all, but I’ve seen worse and myself I’ve done my share of bemoaning his supposed lack of artistic vision. Say what you want, however, but you can’t say the guys hasn’t got a huge amount of business acumen.

Anyway, if you are like me and you can’t find a way to sell more than a handful of prints every year, I think you should definitely read that article. Too long, you say? Well, you don’t actually have to read it all, because I have copied here below the paragraph that is absolutely essential to make you sell many more prints.

Say Goodbye to Winter!

OK, I will admit that if you live in the Northeastern US and just had to plow snow and thaw the ice on the windshield, Spring still looks like a distant dream, but to us who live in warmer climates, images like the one below will soon be impossible to take, which is a bit of a shame.

For all those who would like winter lo linger a little bit more, at least on their desktops, I’ve created this March desktop wallpaper in varying sizes. All I am asking in exchange for it is that you become a member of my mailing list (some marketers would say my exclusive mailing list, but I’m not a marketer and my list is very democratic) by signing up here: http://eepurl.com/1gmtH

In addition to a monthly desktop wallpaper you will receive the occasional email with hints and tips about photography. I promise it’s even better than the wallpaper!

I'm Big in Iceland

For some strange reason, today my blog got more unique visitors from Iceland than from any other country. Wonder why.

A Year in Travel Pictures, 2014 – September (Part II)

Yikes! I’ve been remiss in keeping up with posting my best travel pictures from last year. More than a month has passed since I talked about our trip to Greece at the beginning of September and I still haven’t posted anything about my trip to Ireland at the end of September.

Tripods come in every size, but for somebody like me, who most often takes photos while traveling and who likes traveling light, a good, compact travel tripod is a must...

Watch my review of the Brian by +3 Legged Thing, a little great travel tripod.

This is also my first post on +Visual Wilderness. Stay tuned for more tips, tricks and reviews from me to appear soon there.

Many thanks to my friend +Davide De Nova for letting me borrow the Brian and assisting me with shooting the video.

Flights and hotels booked for Prague, Bratislava, and Budapest. That makes 7 or possibly 8 European countries visited in three months. Not bad for the start of the year.

The State of Mirrorless, Ep. 013 – Othman Kammah

Just to show you that we’re not superstitious, here is the thirteenth episode of our series of interviews, The State of Mirrorless. This time, me and +Mathieu Gasquet interviewed +Othman Kammah, a young photographer with lots of interesting ideas to share and a Fujifilm X Ambassador. For a change, we talked less about gear and more about life and photography in general. We hope you will appreciate the slight change in perspective and the slant that we’re giving our conversation, starting with this one.

The Myth of Talent

The idea that some people have an innate talent and that you can’t be an artist if you don’t have talent is so ingrained in people’s minds that almost every time I mention my skepticism to somebody, they inevitably look at me like I had said the weirdest thing. “We have talent shows on TV, right? How can you not see that some people are just born with a superior talent and others aren’t?”

The State of Mirrorless, Ep. 12 – Eric Cote

+Eric Cote is a brilliant osteopath turned photographer… or is he a brilliant photographer turned osteopath? You will have to watch his interview, done by me and +Mathieu Gasquet , to find out.

We probably won’t go to Canada to test his osteopathy skills, but trust us, his photography is pretty cool and he’s a very affable, down-to-earth kind of guy, who runs a fascinating blog on his experience with mirrorless cameras.

The architecture in Barcelona is simply out of this world. As I only had two days there, I could only shoot some of its most egregious examples, but I could stay there a month and shoot two or three different buildings every day.
