Gailen Mapes71,215Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera I-K - 6 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.2014-11-12 11:41:46137000

Hugh Ferguson10,217A starter circle for those new to G+ I just realised its a year since I joined G+. When I started I was lucky enough to come across a really useful circle share to help me on my way. As I have yet to share a circle of my own I will try and give something back, in the hope it helps those in a similar position. I am not posting this for +1's, shares or to gain new followers - so please do not feel obliged to share, +1 or follow - there are plenty of those type of circle shares around if that's what you want The circle below is just a selection of the 3000 or so I follow. All are excellent and active contributors to G+. It's quite Landscape biased (too many great photographers to pick out one or two), but there are examples of other genres and resources for example:Great photographers who work tirelessly through communities and pages, producing great interaction, such as +Margaret Tompkins +Kevin Rowe +Rinus Bakker and +Nancy Dempsey .... wonderful creative artists like +Heidi Anne Morris +Lotus Carroll +Bryan Peterson .....street photographers such as +Thomas Leuthard +Angelica Guckes ......the exquisite beauty of flowers and Macro by +Rosie Nixon +Silke Tüxen ......great teachers such as +Nicole S.

Seth Burgess18,031My mp-e 65mm user's circleIt's grown to over 50 people, so probably time to share this again.  These are G+ people that own and use Canon's mp-e 65mm lens that starts at 1:1 and is capable of up to 5:1 magnification.  Generally if you're going to drop US$1000 on a manual can't-actually-focus macro lens, you know your way around a macro reasonably well, and I think the people included in this circle prove the point.  Some very skilled photographers here!If you own this glass and want to be added please do let me know.  If you're in it and don't want to be included, also let me know.2014-06-10 15:09:56522707

Gailen Mapes64,928Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  I-K - 6 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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 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 Mapes2014-06-06 10:43:15133005

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

Paige Keaton57,548In memory of +Dirk Talamasca I am sharing a circle of friends from G+ I have shoved into a circle named. People Worth Keeping. As he was really into getting people connected. This circle is 700 people deep and it only shares 500. I need to split this in 2 and share all of you lovelies.. Dirk was a bad ass. He was what G+ was all about. Enjoyed many hours online during Beta with him. Really sucks when people die on here.   #RIPDIRKTALAMASCA   #shareyourpeople  2014-03-31 01:45:085017137

This from a beach at Carmel - this weekend.
Sony a7 + Canon 14mm F2.8L lens (see the Fotodiox adapter review: http://goo.gl/fKu1er )
What I like the best in Sony v.s canon is that it has flip screen. I can easily position camera really low, and shoot w/o any angle finder and laying down on the rocks:-)

Guys, I am super exited today! 
+Timothy Kou   is about to release his brand new series of courses on Photigy! There will be 3 courses in the series, starting from a "straight on" shot of a liqueur bottle in the first course to a complex creative shot with splash in the last one.
It will cover a complete workflow of a commercial studio shot: From a creation of concept creative, prepping, setting the studio and shooting to a full post-production of the final shot. 
This is a really great course for anyone who is doing (or going) to do a commercial studio product photography. 

Tim is a part of a family owned photo/video/3D design studio in Chicago, you can check it at http://www.imagineeringstudios.com/

Below is the image of "before" (a concept drawing), "intermediate" (in-camera) and "after" - a final result. This shot is fromTim&... more »

Now we need to get a name for the course. What would you suggest? It should be short and informative...

How wide a dynamic range of Sony a7? Take a look at this photo - single exposure, and previously we couldn't get a good shots like this, agains the sun with a really dark shadows under the bridge. 
Now all is possible - and this is awesome! No more tripods, and all the beauty is a click away from you, he-he:-) More shots with Sony a7  - no HDRs are here: http://www.koloskov.com/weekend-carmel/

Thanks +Genia Larionova  for the click:-)

Yesterday we received a monitor for our graphic designer +Genia Larionova  . It's huge, it is not glossy and we are going to setup and calibrate it (it includes calibration as well). Here it is: http://goo.gl/oeER4j 
Bye-bye Apple monitors! We did a research and considered this NEC to be an ideal choice for us. 
Not as expensive as Eizo monitors, and with all professional tools needed for color accuracy and personal preference of a user:-)

Question: what is your monitor?

From yesterday's trip to Capitola. On a shot like this I'd usually would to a multi-exposure HDR, but now it is not needed with Sony a7. I can pull all the details needed from a single RAW - if it is not too overexposed at the sky.
Will do a review soon on Photigy.com. Love this camera!

Flying adore:-) Such a great way to live a life - on a full throttle, giving 100% of yourself to the moment. 
Children can do this - why it is so hard for 40 year old adult to give up everything to LIVE NOW? 

This is my daughter, I've catch her today on a beach. We just got back from Capitola. Another beautiful place just 45 minutes from us. Brough so many photos - will be posting a story of this Sunday to my blog soon (http://www.koloskov.com/blog/)
Cheers!

Guys, Have you seen a new design of SmugMug homepage? Love it, looks so cool!
Below is an interesting BTS shot I took at Smugmug office some time ago - and see the final result from that shot. BTW, it was a Leica camera first time on the table:-)
Well, you better go to www.smugmug.com and see it in real.

Waiting for sunset at Carmel - from last weekend. 
Thank you +Genia Larionova   for cool post-processing, love it. This is Canon 14mm lens on Sony 7. Hope one day Zeiss will release a good variety of lenses for Sony FE e-mount... 
It was this adapter for Canon lenses I've used: http://goo.gl/f8X9oW

This from a beach at Carmel - this weekend.
Sony a7 + Canon 14mm F2.8L lens (see the Fotodiox adapter review: http://goo.gl/fKu1er )
What I like the best in Sony v.s canon is that it has flip screen. I can easily position camera really low, and shoot w/o any angle finder and laying down on the rocks:-)
See - This little puddle of seawater has some nice forms of life! Image was Beautifully processed by +Genia Larionova
