Jim Patterson617,752Hello art and nature lovers! October is here and that means Open Studios is in full swing for Santa Cruz County artists. I will have my full inventory of prints for sale, and I've just finished framing up five new pieces to compliment my other work on display. I will be open 11am-5pm this Saturday and Sunday, the 6th and 7th. I will also be open the 20th and 21st for encore weekend. My artist # is 118 and I am located under the eucalyptus trees on the east side of Moran Lake at 20 Moran Way, Santa Cruz, CA 95062. Most map websites put my house up on the street, so just follow the big green signs once you get close. Thanks again and I hope to see you this weekend. Mention G+ and get 15% off any purchase! Jim PattersonJim Patterson Photography Open Studios, Oct 6-7, 20-21, 11am-5pm2012-10-06 11:00:0049

Gailen Mapes75,483Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera M-O - 19 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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.2015-01-19 12:10:29172408

We were meant for each other

Watching large groups of California Sea Lions try to sleep on a small dock, they can appear as a writhing mass of whiskers, flippers, and fur. Occasionally, they get comfortable and rest for a few minutes and often interlock heads as if they were pillows.

In case you were wondering, the two easiest ways to tell whether it is a seal or a sea lion is 1) sea lions have external ears, seals have an ear canal with no ear flap and 2) sea lions swim with their front flippers (and can prop themselves up on them...why they get used at the circus) and seals use their rear flippers to swim.

Hello, sunset!

Color and clouds certainly can add to the appeal of photographing landscapes. I barely caught this one, but the hustle of getting here quickly dissolved into a calm as I watched the sun go down and watched the color grow. The California coast at this time of year is a sight to behold!

Ran into +Steven Christenson in the parking lot and had a nice chat as he was preparing for a Star Circle Academy night photography workshop. We talked shop which was fun.

+Joshua Cripps and I are teaching a Santa Cruz workshop today (http://goo.gl/7oSZC). Hopefully the sunset will be a repeat performance!

"Fields of Summer"

The warm light of the rising sun spills across the fields of flowers near Steptoe Butte in eastern Washington. This was a combination of 4 images, 2 for focus, and two more for dynamic range. I will be leading a workshop here next June along with +Maryanne Trengove aka Little m photography for those that are interested. It will be June 4-7, 2015, and it's currently on SALE until this Friday!

If you'd like to learn how to make images like this, we are running a sale on all our 2015 workshops. Check it out! http://goo.gl/zvE5PD

Tomorrow, I'll be heading off to Death Valley to co-teach a workshop with +Joshua Cripps . I'm looking forward to showing the group to some of the amazing geology the park has to offer!

This image was from a spectacular morning on the same workshop two years ago. I raced off with a participant to get the small section of rainbow to get closer to Manly Beacon, the peak in the lower right. This required heading north to get the proper perspective.

We still have space in our February workshop here for those interested. Details: http://goo.gl/Ss2Ang

Late October also brings unstable weather to Yosemite, one of America's most beautiful parks, meaning we stand a great chance of seeing dramatic conditions and beautiful light.

If you'd like to nab one of those final spots please email me to let me know, or sign up directly over the website.

For +Sea Tuesday , here is a little local flavor from Santa Cruz. Back in December, some storm light spiced up this common scene at Twin Lakes State Beach near the harbor. The pelicans were out enjoying the last light as well.

Strolling down memory lane, here is an image that I made 5 years ago today on January 14, 2009. This is probably one of my personal favorites for a variety of reasons. Hope you enjoy a glimpse of the underwater world of the Monterey Bay which I call home.

What a great week!

I arrived in Death Valley Wednesday in time for a nice sunset, did some scouting on Thursday and had an amazing sunset. Then, the next 3+ days were spent with a sold out workshop with a great group of people.

After the official end to the workshop, two participants stayed an extra day, and so did I. I convinced them (didn't take much) to do some night photography at Natural Bridge. At the end of the shoot, this was the final frame as we all gathered under the arch.

If you'd like to join in on some fun times, photography, and a little exploration in one of the most photogenic national parks in the US, we still have 3 spots remaining in our February workshop. Details: http://goo.gl/Ngdn55

While diving in Indonesia, I was told of rare and chance encounters with larger animals such as whale sharks, whales, dolphins, dugongs, etc, but knew not to get my hopes up.

There were, however, lots and lots of turtles. I'm ok with turtles. :) But I soon found out, that they always had somewhere to go. And no land mammal with SCUBA gear on can quite keep up with even the slowest marine animal while swimming in a current.

I did manage to capture a few frames here and there though. This is one of several I'll be sharing.

Death Valley's Mesquite Dunes

Direct light on the sand dunes really does bring out the textures in the sand.

My first visit to Death Valley almost four years ago was one to remember. On the last day, as I was leaving the dunes, I stopped to photograph this ridge. Join me and fellow photographer +Joshua Cripps  on our Death Valley workshop Nov. 14-17, 2013. We still have a few spots left! It's always fun and the landscapes are amazing.

Hello, sunset!

Color and clouds certainly can add to the appeal of photographing landscapes. I barely caught this one, but the hustle of getting here quickly dissolved into a calm as I watched the sun go down and watched the color grow. The California coast at this time of year is a sight to behold!

Ran into +Steven Christenson in the parking lot and had a nice chat as he was preparing for a Star Circle Academy night photography workshop. We talked shop which was fun.

+Joshua Cripps and I are teaching a Santa Cruz workshop today (http://goo.gl/7oSZC). Hopefully the sunset will be a repeat performance!

Out of the Darkness

I have been a bit, let's just say, distracted the last few weeks. Life sometimes has a funny way of going on tangents that were not anticipated nor appreciated, but so it goes. More on that later.

Here is an image from my trip to the Channel Islands over the Labor Day weekend. It is of a Garibaldi, the California state marine fish. This particular individual is in its inter-phase. Once a Garibaldi is all grown up, they are 100% orange. The younger they are, the more electric blue they are.

Out of the Darkness

I have been a bit, let's just say, distracted the last few weeks. Life sometimes has a funny way of going on tangents that were not anticipated nor appreciated, but so it goes. More on that later.

Here is an image from my trip to the Channel Islands over the Labor Day weekend. It is of a Garibaldi, the California state marine fish. This particular individual is in its inter-phase. Once a Garibaldi is all grown up, they are 100% orange. The younger they are, the more electric blue they are.

We were meant for each other

Watching large groups of California Sea Lions try to sleep on a small dock, they can appear as a writhing mass of whiskers, flippers, and fur. Occasionally, they get comfortable and rest for a few minutes and often interlock heads as if they were pillows.

In case you were wondering, the two easiest ways to tell whether it is a seal or a sea lion is 1) sea lions have external ears, seals have an ear canal with no ear flap and 2) sea lions swim with their front flippers (and can prop themselves up on them...why they get used at the circus) and seals use their rear flippers to swim.

Just had to share this amazing image of a complete blue whale underwater taken by none other than the talented and dedicated +Phillip Colla . Check it out and comment and +1 the original post below!


Blue Whale Photo

Some thoughts on the challenges of photographing an 80' subject in 50' visibility: http://www.oceanlight.com/log/blue-whale-full-body-photo.html

I made my first underwater photo of a blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) about 18 years ago, and over the intervening years I have struggled to make a perfect image of an entire blue whale, rostrum to fluke, one with which I am entirely satisfied. This image of an adult blue whale underwater, which I made recently while out on the water with friend and fellow photographer Mike Johnson, is a good example.

This photograph illustrates the snake-like proportions of an adult blue whale as well as the curve of the upper lip bone (the largest single bone in the animal kingdom), the thin ridge on top of the rostrum that leads to the splash guard in front of the whale’s blowhole, and the curious skin mottling that characterizes the species. But technically this image has some problems, the sort that drive underwater photographers nuts. I do not exaggerate when I say trying to photograph an 80′ or longer animal underwater in typical California water conditions is a real challenge! The water is often cloudy or hazy, as can be seen in this image by a “glow” or “halo” that surrounds some of the brighter parts of the subject, particularly around the dorsal ridge and caudal area of the whale which are close to the surface and thus reflecting a great deal of light. With film this haloing was at once less objectionable but nearly impossible to deal with in post processing. With today’s digital tools, the computer operator can attempt to suppress the haloing somewhat but at the risk of adding too much artificiality to the image. So my decision is that it remains. Above water our eyes and lenses are accustomed to seeing things clearly in the range of miles. Underwater, our range of vision is crippled tremendously, measured in just feet. This begs the question: How does one photograph a subject whose dimensions are greater than the distance one can even see? For whales, water visibility must be excellent, 60′ or better, or else much of the leviathan is depicted without detail. In this image, note the whitewater at top left: it is the point where the blue whale left the ocean surface and began its underwater glide but, at about 120′ away, it is rendered with no detail at all. The leading 1/3 of the whale is sufficiently near the camera that it is rendered with plenty of detail, but is not so close that it is distorted by the fisheye lens I was using. The open ocean, miles from shore, is normally the best place to find clear and blue water. Recently, though, the ocean off our coast has been a veritable soup of zooplankton. Abundant salps, sea nettles, filamentous and particulate-like critters float about in an explosion of spineless life. This occasional summer phenomenon is very cool to experience, and in the past I have even stopped to photograph these small weightless water-filled wonders. But on the day I shot this photo, such things are effectively obstacles to photographing much grander subjects. The only way to deal with the situation is to shoot as many photos as possible hoping that, upon review later, one is lucky to have some frames in which the jellies do not obscure the whale. Of the 10 frames I shot while the animal passed by me, rolling on its side to look at us with one eye as it did so, this was the only frame that did not have zooplanktons screwing it up. I experimented with using a silver color conversion on this photo to better accentuate the sunlit whale against the dark, bottomless void of ocean below, and I thought this rendition looked pretty appealing. I do not get out on the ocean much anymore. In fact this may be the only photo of a blue whale I take all year! So I consider myself lucky to have seen it and be able to share the experience with you. Thanks for looking, and cheers!___Just had to share this amazing image of a complete blue whale underwater taken by none other than the talented and dedicated +Phillip Colla .

I just found out there is an #underwaterphotography  theme for Thursdays! Well, I have a few of those types of images. :)

Taken back in the summer of 2007, this shallow reef sits just outside the boundary to Point Lobos in Carmel, California. I was enjoying this view on a sunny, summer day, so I made a few images of the gently swaying kelp with the sun light beaming down from above.

Storm Receiver

My recent trip to Arizona took me through four states, a state park, and two national parks. But none of these parks were the reason for the trip. I'll leave that for another day.

Upon arrival in Page, Arizona, +kendra karr and I spent about an hour trying to find a cryptic building on Navajo land in order to pick up the now-required commercial photography permit (required if you plan on selling any of your images made while on Navajo land). Much to our surprise, large cumulus clouds were filling the skies, so we headed over to Stud Horse Point for some afternoon photography of the rock formations there known as 'hoodoos'.

This is one of the more photogenic ones, which its angled top. It is also relatively small, so it is easier to fit it in the frame with other elements. +Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2 made this conversion to #monochrome ... more »

For #monochromemonday hosted by +Manuel Votta and +Charles Lupica, here is an image from a week or so ago. This is in #bigsur   along the coast of Garrapata State Park. With the late spring storm, I wanted to get a few images of this little cobblestone cove with my new #D800 .

The very next day, I met up with fellow photographer +David Thompson on his birthday getaway to the coast. Nice meeting you Breezy!

Back to the image, I was overly excited to have nice conditions and unfortunately spent more time trying different compositions and exposure durations instead of settling into one or two and making sure I got them right where I want them. I did get a few I'm happy with though.

The sun peeks out from behind an aspen tree in the forests of the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains. The fall color contrasts with the deep blue sky with crisp alpine air. California may not be known for its fall colors, but when they are good, they are a beautiful sight ot behold.

Want to join +Sea to Summit Workshops with +Joshua Cripps and me this Fall in the Eastern Sierras? We were running a sale through yesterday, but Josh and I are slow to take down the links. You can still swoop in and save. More info: http://www.seatosummitworkshops.com/

Doing art shows can lead to looney toon dimentia. Would you buy a print from this person? :-)

My last art show of the year is about to come to a close. I can almost taste the sanity creeping back into my life. I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Ok, one more image for #MonochromeMonday

The Art of Kelp

This is an image I made while SCUBA diving in California's Channel Islands. I used a downward camera angle, going against the rule "shoot up". This drastically reduced the amount of light getting to my camera. I dialed the fastest shutter speed my strobes would sync with: 1/250sec and closed the aperture down. All this allowed the background to go black.

My two strobes provided the light. A sepia toned conversion and square crop finished it off.
