Gailen Mapes85,001Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera A-B - 1 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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.2015-04-01 10:43:07170000

Dubie Bacino122,785Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (15th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).-----------------------------------------To connect with me, the best place is my appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------If you are on #TSU, connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara. If not, check it out, it's the new social network that pays you revenue for your online activity! -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

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.

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.2014-11-08 12:11:50134000

For scale, I'd say it was 70 or 80 feet across. I knew with a long enough exposure in the moonlight that the maze would show up but not stand out. I decided to set up the camera with the shutter open while I walked the maze with my flashlight pointed at the ground. I hoped that this would produce a sci-fi effect and also help the maze pattern stand out.

It took me several minutes to walk the entire maze. On my first few attempts I would get off course in the dark.

Kozjak Gorge in the Slovenian Alps from back in July. The limestone canyons in Slovenia share some similarities with the sandstone slots of the American Southwest, just with ferns and crystal water. Do you see the stairs and bridge?

Don't miss! Ultra HD footage of the Himalayas by the aerial cinema experts at +Teton Gravity Research. Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen. I trekked this exact route to base camp in 2006 so I really got a kick seeing it from the air. Watch it full screen to see all the details.

New on the PhotoCascadia blog: A recap of the "4 truths and a lie" quizzes that appeared in our newsletters throughout 2014. If you missed them in the newsletters you can read them here for some personal, and sometimes amusing, backstory on each of the members. The answers are also included so you can find out which facts were actually complete hogwash.

I'm going to be presenting at the CanAm PhotoExpo in Buffalo in a few days. The NE is new territory for me. Let me know if you are going to be there too. Looks like it will be a great event with some excellent instructors.

Moment of zen: Hallowed. From a trip with +Zack Schnepf to the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona a few years back. This deep twilight light occurred almost every day about 30 minutes before sunrise and after sunset. We later found out that it occurs when sunlight passes through somewhat rare particles (often from volcanoes) high in the stratosphere. It was so rich and permeating that we took to calling it salmon light. Otherworldly light illuminating an otherworldly landscape!

5D MKIII, 16-35mm at 26mm, polarizer. 6 seconds, f/18, ISO 100. I made many subtle and incremental luminosity masked adjustments for contrast and color to showcase the light quality and mood.

Canon 5D MKIII shadow recovery fail! Interesting discussion around Kevin McNeal's Nikon D800/810 shadow recovery article yesterday. I decided to create some Canon 5D MKIII shadow recovery samples for comparison. These samples illustrate why the claimed 3 to 5 stops of shadow recovery with minimal noise with Nikon/Sony borders on unbelievable to us Canon users. With Canon, 2 Stops of shadow recovery in an underexposed image is bad. 4 Stops is atrocious.

Compare to Milan Josipovic's D810 sample with 3 stops recovery. http://on.fb.me/1Ec5LOw

To find out more about why Nikon/Sony seemingly defy the physics of the Expose To The Right (ETTR) principle read Jeff Schewe's excellent article here: http://schewephoto.com/ETTR/

Nikon D800/810 owners, how much can you recover underexposed photos without noise? +Kevin McNeal is one of several I know who feel that the Nikon D810 has enough dynamic range to make bracketing exposures unnecessary in just about all light situations. He underexposes to contain highlights and then recovers the darks without noise problems. This is completely counter intuitive based on what I know about the affects of the low signal-to-noise ratio in dark exposures, but it's also really dang cool. My fingers are crossed for upcoming Canon cameras.

McKenzie Woods. One of my favorite things to do in the fall is drive the McKenzie Pass Highway in Oregon to experience the bright autumn vine maple lighting up the dark and dense fir forests. The day I took this photo was overcast with intermittent showers, perfect for moody, balanced and glowing deep forest light. It was a challenge to find an organized and balanced composition that worked within all the visual clutter. For reference, the color in the McKenzie Pass Highway area is usually best in the second half of October.

Info: Canon 5D MKIII, single exposure, 4 seconds, f/16, 24mm, ISO 100, polarizer. Developing adjustments included basic color balance and contrast work, targeted tone and color adjustments using luminosity masks and also dodging/burning type adjustments using the Luminosity Painting technique.

Showing Announcement! The gallery at Houston's Fine Art in Ashland is now showing my photography. They have done a masterful job framing several of my favorite recent pieces, including this one.
There will be an opening reception for ArtWalk this Friday evening. I'm grateful for the opportunity to show at Houston's, so if you are in the area please come in and enjoy the new images and help me show them my appreciation. If you can't make it for the opening Friday, stop by anytime. For me, experiencing large, fine art prints which are expertly framed and lit is the best way to appreciate photography...and all art. Houston's shows a variety of artists in a variety of media, all more talented than I am, so this is a real honor for me.

This week on the blog I am sharing a video chapter from the new edition of my Developing for Extended Dynamic Range tutorial series. In this chapter I demonstrate how luminosity masks and a technique called masking-the-mask are useful in creating better tonal balance in high dynamic range exposures. I hope you find it helpful.

In this time-lapse video I blend 4 frames to deal with dynamic range, lens flare and flower movement. Even if you don't photograph it's a fun look behind the scenes. Plus, I think the music is cool.

Two months further on and I have been glued to my computer almost continuously, so it is a relief to have it finished.

The update covers the same core concepts as the original series, namely how I work with tonal balance in single exposures and exposure blending of multiple exposures to create images that encompass a wider range of light (like the light range contained in this image). The new 2nd edition of the series has more advanced examples and goes into depth on a variety of complex blending situations. It utilizes Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC and the current version of Tony Kuyper's TKActions Panel. The total instructional time is nearly six and a half hours broken into 36 chapters. You can find out more and see some sample chapters at the link above.

Long before I was a photographer I was a fan of nature photography. Acquiring prints that mean something to me is where my fandom has taken me. Viewing images on the web is fun, but looking at a high quality print is an entirely different experience. Bruce Jackson is a photographer from Oregon who first inspired me many years ago. His large format film prints are true works of art. His vision of nature and treatment of light is moving. I was over the moon to get one of his prints. It brings me great pleasure on a daily basis now and will be treasured for the rest of my life. Forgive me for the lame phone photo, Bruce, but I just had to share.

I am a long time member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), the first and premiere association in North America committed solely to serving the field of nature photography. They do a lot of good stuff to support folks like us. The annual convention is coming up in February and I'm bummed I can't make it. It is a great place to learn from the best and meet other outdoor photography enthusiasts.

New video/blog: When and How to Bracket Exposures? This is a common question during workshops. Auto bracketing can work, but often gets it wrong. In this short video I explain how to evaluate a histogram for dynamic range and share a couple techniques for no-fail manual exposure bracketing. I hope it's helpful. :-)

Here's my first photo of 2015. I was back at the beach for New Years. A bright moon was out and the Milky Way wasn't visible, but I did find a meticulously crafted maze someone had left in the sand. For scale, I'd say it was 70 or 80 feet across. I knew with a long enough exposure in the moonlight that the maze would show up but not stand out. I decided to set up the camera with the shutter open while I walked the maze with my flashlight pointed at the ground. I hoped that this would produce a sci-fi effect and also help the maze pattern stand out.

It took me several minutes to walk the entire maze. On my first few attempts I would get off course in the dark. When I did finally succeed on walking the entire maze without a mistake I found that one section was a closed loop so I didn't walk there and it didn't get illuminated.

It took me several minutes to walk the entire maze. On my first few attempts I would get off course in the dark. When I did finally succeed on walking the entire maze without a mistake I found that one section was a closed loop so I didn't walk there and it didn't get illuminated. My solution was to take another exposure walking just the closed loop so I could later blend it in for an uninterrupted illuminated path. If you look closely you will see small gaps in the light path. This is where my legs blocked the light momentarily.

I also took a separate 20 second exposure to use for the sky. The longer exposures featured short star trails that didn't really look right.

This entire process took about an hour and I was racing against the incoming tide. Shortly after I completed my exposures the waves began erasing the maze and by morning it was completely gone. It was a bit of luck to find the maze so thanks to whoever made it. Certainly a memorable way to bring in the new year.

My camera settings for the long exposure were f/6.3 at ISO 200 and the shutter was open for about six minutes while I walked the maze___

Happy New Year! This is the last photo I took last year, at about 9:00 PM on December 31, 2013. I like the idea of taking one last photo of the year, so I'm going to do it again tonight. See you in 2015.

My favorite photographs from 2014. One of my favorite year end activities is to look back at my work from the past 12 months and try to pick out just a few which I think call out for a closer look, remind me of memorable moments, mark milestones or communicate something that I hope will resonate with others. It has been a wonderful year. Thanks for your interest and support. Here's to good light and great adventures in 2015!

Good friend and colleague +David Cobb has also been in the interview hotseat with +Bill Ramsey at the IntrepidNOW photography podcast. Bill is doing a great job interviewing a range of photographers. His podcast makes for fun listening on the way to work on on a road trip.

After a break from the action last week, I have some catching up on things I'd like to share with you. This interview with my friend +Raynor Czerwinski on IntrepidNow is wonderful. In addition to having a really grounded perspective on photography, creativity and life, Raynor also has a portrait so cool that any rock musician would want it for an album cover.

Tis the season of interviews  Here is one I did with +Darlene Hildebrandt at Digital Photo Mentor. My favorite thing about this interview is that it gave me a chance to share my favorite photos of my two sons.

Here is the PhotoCascadia Team, up to no good in the redwoods, during our annual get together last weekend. +Chip Phillips drove about 30 hours round trip with a bad cold so he could hang out with us for 12 hours, but we are so glad that he did! Per usual, +Kevin McNeal had us all laughing to the point of tears with his wild tales. +Adrian Klein and +Zack Schnepf conquered the fried chicken, bacon, avocado, maple syrup, Belgian waffle sandwich. +David Cobb won the best beard contest for the fifth year running.

Alpenglow on Capitol Peak. Taken in the Colorado Rockies back in late September with my good mate +Zack Schnepf.  I'm excited to see Zack and the rest of the Photo Cascadia crew this weekend at our annual meet up. Fingers crossed that everyone makes it this year. With six photographers there's always a chance of a last minute crisis that keeps someone from making it. Stand by for some tall tales and pics from the weekend. It's the first time most of us will get to see +Chip Phillips since his son was born and I'm sure +Kevin McNeal will keep us on our toes as usual.

Today's share: +Ryan Dyar's Perspective Blending video tutorials. This advanced video (www.ryandyarphotography.com/617439) shows the entire post process of how he created the image below. The focal length, dynamic range, depth of field and exposure times were all outside what could be recorded in a single frame. By moving the camera, moving the focus point and adjusting exposure times he captured information that no camera could get all at once. As complex as this is in the field, the real work happens when he stitches all of the frames together in post to create his seamless final piece, a stunning high resolution vertical panorama.

Of and About. Just read this great article by the consistently articulate +Guy Tal. http://nblo.gs/11W7Fg 

Quote: "What an image is about – its significance, meaning and story – does not come from any subject, tool or technique. It originates from the mind of the person behind the camera. I prefer an image that is about something to an image of something."

I think I have a harder than Guy describing what many of my photographs are about. I do know that when I take an image I'm happy with I always feel it is about something, even if it is hard to put into words.

I call this photo Winter Bones. I took it along the banks of the Deschutes River in central Oregon almost exactly one year ago. It's about a lot of things for me but I'll keep those to myself right now. You can decide on your own what it might be about for you. I think that's one of thegrea... more »

New media company IntrepidNOW has recently launched a Photography channel. I had a great time chatting with Editor-in-Chief, +Bill Ramsey, on two of their inaugural photography casts. One podcast is with +Sinh Truong from +f-stop Gear talking about what the innovative camera bag company has been up to lately, and the other podcast Bill gets me to tell some tall tales about adventures in outdoor photography. It sounds like Bill has a long list of intriguing photographers covering all genres coming up on the podcast. The folks at IntrepidNOW do a really good job. You can give it a listen at the links below!

New on the PhotoCascadia blog - Photographing Slovenia by +David Cobb. Slovenia is an outdoor and travel photography dreamland.

We both fell in love with this small country on the edge of the Alps and plan to do a photo tour there in 2017 with local photographer, Luka Esenko Photography. If you want to see more of what Slovenia has to offer, In addition to David's article you can also see the photography of +Andreas Resch (www.andreasresch.at) and +Erin Babnik (www.erinbabnik.com).

Land of Canyons. Back in September Zack Schnepf and I made a sunrise stop at Dead Horse Point near Moab, Utah on our long drive to Colorado. This is one of those massive vistas that always excites the senses, especially while the morning light is advancing down the canyon walls. The dirt road down there is part of the 100 mile White Rim Trail. One of these days I'm going to spend three or four days driving it in the Falcon. After the shoot we made a quick stop in town for breakfast at Love Muffin Cafe and then marveled at the prints in +Bret Edge's gallery and chat with Bret and his wife Melissa. I love photographing the Utah sandstone landscape so it was hard to leave so soon, but we were on a mission for fall color in the Rockies. 

5DIII, 35mm focal length, polarizer. Two exposure blend, to contain dynamic range of sky and shadow. 0.4 seconds and 0.1 seconds at f/14, ISO 100.

An image for Thanksgiving. I have much to be thankful for, and I am mindful of this each and every day, but especially while spending time with my family on this holiday. 

I am thankful for autumn color, my home town and good friends. This is one of my favorite fall scenes in Lithia Park, right here in my home town of Ashland, Oregon. +Joseph Linaschke and I enjoyed some wonderful light fog and soft overcast light the day we went out to shoot a couple weeks ago.

Canon 5DIII, 67mm focal length, polarizer, .5 seconds, f/14, ISO 100. Second exposure at 1/30 second, ISO 1600 to keep the ducks sharp.

Kozjak Gorge in the Slovenian Alps from back in July. The limestone canyons in Slovenia share some similarities with the sandstone slots of the American Southwest, just with ferns and crystal water. Do you see the stairs and bridge?

Misty Rogue Morning. I have really enjoyed getting out to photograph near where I live in Southern Oregon this autumn. This photos was from a couple weeks ago on the Rogue River above Shady Cove. I went out on a quick three day trip with Kai Cadarette. It was pouring rain, but that's when then best misty atmosphere happens.
