Gailen Mapes68,403Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 #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 +2014-10-02 10:23:56136000

Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116935056
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.

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 May 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721024720

Dubie Bacino55,195Inspiring on Google+ Curated by Opajdara (3rd 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.

So I decided to start sharing two of my circles every month:  - FRIENDS: 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.

Stephan Spelde8,664My Inspirational CircleEver since I joined Google plus in the end of the year 2011 I have been looking for those special ones.

I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930

Autumn Thunder in the Rockies. +Zack Schnepf and I are back from an epic fall road trip in Colorado. This is my first image share from the trip. The conditions for the entire two weeks were phenomenal so I think we will have our image developing work cut out for us for quite a while. I'm excited to share more photographs from our travels in the coming days.

The area around Crested Butte was the epicenter of color this year. We spent several days there and were present when the first snows of the season came down. This image was taken in the Gothic Valley one evening as thunderstorms preceded the approaching snow. We had been photographing lower in the valley when we saw the light and rain showers further up. We jumped in the Millennium Falcon II and raced to this overlook we had previously scouted and found it was being bathed in some incredible storm light.

Plitvice Waterfalls Panorama. Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is a natural wonder I have wanted to experience for many years. It's also wildly popular in the summer months so crowds can be a challenge for photography. I was additionally challenged by heavy thunderstorms. The best time to photograph is most likely early in the morning before the crowds arrive and the boardwalks begin vibrating constantly. I tried to head out at 6:00 AM the one morning I was there but the sky let loose with a downpour that trapped me in the car for an hour. The afternoon before we were caught in a thunderstorm of biblical proportions during our afternoon hike as well. I hunkered in my rain jacket for an hour waiting for it to clear. When it did stop raining there was some great light and mist and I found myself alone, the throngs having left to run for cover. It was during this quiet moment that I was able to take... more »

Until Morning. My family closed out summer last weekend with some camping, kayaking and mountain biking at Waldo Lake in the Oregon cascades. We had over 30 people stuffed into five camp sites! Waldo is one of the most scenic lakes I know. I had hoped to also photograph the forecasted aurora, but it was a no show. Instead I made due with photographing the sunset twilight which was illuminating our kayaks which had been pulled onto the shore for the night.

Canon 5D III, 16-35mm f/2.8 lens at 19mm and f/18, polarizer, tripod. To handle the light range I blended 6 exposures taken at varying shutter speeds and ISO's to get a full range of exposure values, smooth water and sharp leaves. Blending and further developing made extensive use of luminosity selections and the TKActions Panel. More info on what that's all about can be found here:... more »

Misdirection of Light. Time to leave fall for a moment and jump back to last spring in the redwood forest. I'm always on the search for interesting light and one of my favorites is reflected light. In this case the mysterious glow on the trunks and ferns was caused by the sun reflecting off of the side of a tree just out of the frame to the right. With bright sunlight all around, this more subtle glow on the shaded side of the trees was easy to miss. However, I make a habit of looking for large vertical surfaces in direct sun and then peering into nearby shadows to see what affect the bounced light is having. Fashion and studio photographers manufacture this type of light all the time by holding up large reflective discs. Naturally occurring reflected light situations can be found in the forest, but also in narrow canyons (which is what makes the light in Antelope Canyon so amazing), around sea stacks,... more »

Fashion and studio photographers manufacture this type of light all the time by holding up large reflective discs. Naturally occurring reflected light situations can be found in the forest, but also in narrow canyons (which is what makes the light in Antelope Canyon so amazing), around sea stacks, snowy landscapes, sand dunes and even among tall buildings. Developing for the dynamic range in this particular scene was quite complicated, however. The direct light on the branches in the background was far brighter than the soft glow in the shadows so careful blending of several different exposures was required to get it all balanced and looking right.___

The Edge Of Night. We marveled at this view and the mix of twilight illuminated colors earlier this fall in the Gunnison National Forest of Colorado. I took this photo facing due east several minutes after the sun had set and the Earth's shadow had climbed above the mountains. Somewhere between sunset-pink and black-of-night the band of sky became a very deep purple gray. The snow and aspen leaves, illuminated by light from the horizon behind me jumped out against the dark sky. The wash of colors in the trees was striking and our position looking across a valley from a ridge offered an unusual forest perspective.The scene looked like this for only a few moments. It was like getting a glimpse into a different dimension.

Two exposures - 20 seconds and 10 seconds at f/16, ISO 100, 47mm focal length, polarizer. The shorter 10 second exposure provided the right tone and saturation in the sky,... more »

Full price for the event is $25 but the company sponsoring it has offered a special $7 rate to my readers. If you would like to attend and take advantage of the discount you can use the code "outdoorexposure" when you RSVP at the link below.

Art Wolfe will talk composition, technique and impact. He’ll also be answering questions and reviewing 20 photographs from the audience!

Nature photographers, remember that United States Forest Service proposed policy that could require a permit to photograph on public lands and take photos like this?

Your comments could include the following:

3. No permit or fee should be required for news-gathering in general or for journalists on assignment for editorial purposes.
4. Permits and/or fees may be required when the photography or filming involves product or service advertisements, the use of models, actors, sets, or props, damage to resources, unacceptable health or safety risks, or significant disruption of normal visitor uses.
5. Overly vague and subjective policy criteria such as those found in 45.1c(5)(a), (b) and (c) should be eliminated from the proposed policies.

Thanks to The North American Nature Photographers Association +NANPA for providing these bullet points.___

In The Night. Capitol Peak is one of Colorado's "14ers". It impressively rises nearly 9,000 feet above the Roaring Fork Valley. A little back story on the image: +Zack Schnepf and I coaxed the Millennium Falcon up a dubious jeep road to find this vantage point and photographed sun setting on the peak. After the sun was down I took a twilight image and then went to cook up some burritos in the camper. An hour or so later, when things were much darker, I came back out and photographed the night sky. Back home I combined the two frames to create an images matching what I imagined in the field. For night photos I often shoot the landscape when there is some dim twilight or moonlight because it makes it possible to use a lower ISO and smaller aperture for less noise and more depth of field. It also provides color and detail in the landscape that you can't get shooting in pure darkness. more »

On The Verge. Back to images of Colorado mountains and fall color today. This is from the magical fresh snow morning we had near Crested Butte. It is really hard to pick my favorite from all the images I took during this shoot because it was such a glorious morning. I really like the light and cloud motion that were captured in this frame, taken in near dark twilight long before sunrise. Unfortunately the long shutter speed that was required combined with a bit of a breeze means that a few of the tree tops are blurred. It doesn't look too bad at web size, but it would be really noticeable in a large print. I like the photograph enough otherwise that I may see if I can salvage it with sharp trees from another frame and some careful patching. If I had been following my own teachings I would have taken a second frame of the composition at something like f/5.6 and ISO 2000 just to make sure I had a frame... more »

At the time I only took this as an exposure value test and didn't realize it would be one of my favorites. Still living and learning all the time.

Somewhere Autumn. So, we didn't only photograph grand mountain vistas with dramatic skies in Colorado. We found many smaller scenes in the autumn landscape which drew our attention as well. I really enjoy using longer focal lengths to isolate and compress color and pattern like this.

Has anyone been using Canon's recently updated raw software, Digital Photo Professional 4? Any thoughts? On first inspection I'd say it's greatly improved and a great free alternative for Canon users (but it only supports EOS-1D X, EOS-1D C, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D at this time) who don't already own an Adobe raw processing app. However, I couldn't imagine using it over LR or ACR.

True Grit. Apparently these peaks were a prominent backdrop for the original 1969 John Wayne version of the film. I haven't seen it, but hopefully the film crew had some light conditions like this while filming. +Zack Schnepf and I photographed this scene for about two hours. Just when we thought the light couldn't get any more interesting it would prove us wrong. Watch for a couple more photos from this session since I'm not yet sure which will be the favorite.

5DIII, 24-105mm at 47mm, polarizer. 4/10 of a seconds, f/16, ISO 100. The light range fit in a single exposure but I did quite a bit of developing of the highlights, shadows and color balance to get the image to more accurately communicate the darkness of the clouds and brilliance of the light as I experienced them.

Gothic Peak. Yet another photo from my highly successful trip to Colorado with +Zack Schnepf. Many more photos still to come too. Everyone is going to get aspen overload, so I apologize. This area near Crested Butte had the most varied and intense color we saw out there. We were also compelled by the amazing composition the landscape presented us with here. We were remiss on scouting this hike the day before, but we decided to wing it before sunrise anyway. Needless to say, after an hour in the dark we lost the trail and ended up scrambling up a steep slope try to reach a vantage point before it was too late. At over 10,000 feet of elevation we produced a comical chorus of grunts, curses and wheezes as we clawed our way up and gasped for breath. All that made the experience and the view just that much better. This photo is dedicated to our new friend and CB local photographer extraordinaire, Raynor... more »

5DIII, 24-105mm lens at 105mm focal point, polarizer. 1/2 second at f/16, ISO 100. Three focal points were focus stacked using Helicon Focus to achieve much greater depth of field and sharpness than f/22, allowing for clarity throughout the scene.

Golden Symphony. There is nothing like a hillside of golden aspen back-lit by the autumn sun. The color is so vivid and vibrant that no photograph adequately records it. I'm sorry to say that with web compression and in the sRGB color space, what you see here is even less close to the real thing. You'll have to use your imagination...or better yet, get out there and enjoy them in their glorious actuality

Dark Towers. I took this on a moody, brooding morning in the Sneffels Range of Colorado a couple weeks ago. It didn't look promising when +Zack Schnepf and I stumbled out of the Falcon a little after 6:00 AM. However, as the morning progressed we had some glimpses of light in the clouds creating a dramatic and dark backdrop to the snow dusted peaks. For just a few seconds, only long enough for me to expose three frames, light touched the top of Mt. Sneffels and that was the defining moment of the morning for me.

It was also a pleasure to share the view and some chat with fellow photographers this fine morning, including the talented +David Kingham scouting for a workshop and +Tim Frates Laser Engraving & Custom Framing who has a gallery/frame shop in nearby Montrose. We also met a trio of gentlemen in a white car, but I have misplaced names. If you guys see this, leave me a comment so I... more »

My latest article on the PhotoCascadia blog gives a run down on my lightweight backpacking kit that enables me to get into the wilderness with some camera gear and not need back surgery after. Some of my most rewarding photography is done in places where the roads do not go. If you are interested in going into the back country I hope this info is useful.

Autumn Thunder in the Rockies. +Zack Schnepf and I are back from an epic fall road trip in Colorado. This is my first image share from the trip. The conditions for the entire two weeks were phenomenal so I think we will have our image developing work cut out for us for quite a while. I'm excited to share more photographs from our travels in the coming days.

The area around Crested Butte was the epicenter of color this year. We spent several days there and were present when the first snows of the season came down. This image was taken in the Gothic Valley one evening as thunderstorms preceded the approaching snow. We had been photographing lower in the valley when we saw the light and rain showers further up. We jumped in the Millennium Falcon II and raced to this overlook we had previously scouted and found it was being bathed in some incredible storm light.

Until Morning. My family closed out summer last weekend with some camping, kayaking and mountain biking at Waldo Lake in the Oregon cascades. We had over 30 people stuffed into five camp sites! Waldo is one of the most scenic lakes I know. I had hoped to also photograph the forecasted aurora, but it was a no show. Instead I made due with photographing the sunset twilight which was illuminating our kayaks which had been pulled onto the shore for the night.

Canon 5D III, 16-35mm f/2.8 lens at 19mm and f/18, polarizer, tripod. To handle the light range I blended 6 exposures taken at varying shutter speeds and ISO's to get a full range of exposure values, smooth water and sharp leaves. Blending and further developing made extensive use of luminosity selections and the TKActions Panel. More info on what that's all about can be found here:... more »

Achtung Deutschland! +Tony Kuyper's TKActions Panel has now been translated into German and +André Distel has produced German language video tutorials to go along with it. See below for details.

300 seconds in Manarola - Italy

(Weiter unten für Deutsch) 
News:
Tony Kuyper and I have finally released the matching video series for the German version of the TKActions Panel. It's been fantastic to work with Tony on this project and we are a bit proud to push this product out to the market and hope that people will find the video tutorials as well the TKActions panel in German helpful and that we can be a part of your creative workflow. Free tutorials and videos can be found here: http://www.andredistel.com/tutorials-luminanzmasken/

Deutsch: 
Tony Kuyper und ich haben nun auch die passenden Video Tutorials für die deutsche Version des TK Aktionen Bedienfeldes veröffentlicht. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Tony hat viel Spaß gemacht und wir sind auch ein bisschen stolz, dass Produkt nun endlich auf den Markt zu bringen und hoffen, dass es auch helfen wird die Nachbearbeitung auf ein neues Niveau zu heben und euren eigenen Stil zu finden. Beispielvideos könnt ihr hier finden: http://www.andredistel.com/de/tutorials-luminanzmasken/

THE SHOT
This is the first time, that I am releasing a new image on 500px before all other platforms. This past summer, I had the opportunity to spend a few days for the first time in Manarola. I was out every night and every morning capturing this beautiful village. This 5 minute or 300 second exposure ended up being the most dramatic and best of them all. I was so excited to get this shot in. With the long exposure, sunset at the same time and a 10-stop B+W ND filter, this is what happened. 

Post-processing was in Photoshop using luminosity masking techniques. There are free tutorials on my website, showing how I apply these techniques and a 2 1/2 hour video tutorial series, which I did with Tony Kuyper as my partner in crime explaining luminosity masks and blending techniques. 

There are FREE TUTORIALS on my website in German and English on how I use the TK Actions in my post-processing workflow.

Looking for info on lightweight/high quality mirrorless camera systems? +Adrian Klein shares his impressions of the Sony A6000, the successor to the NEX-7 I have been traveling and backpacking with. I think there have been some significant improvements.

Galaxy Fire. In keeping with my recent forest fire theme I'll share this image of the Milky Way and the Happy Camp fire currently burning near the Klamath River in Northern California. The lightning caused fire is about 25 miles south of where I took the photo and has spread to over 66,000 acres and is just 15% contained. 200-250 homes have been evacuated. Estimate for containment isn't until Sept 20th.

25 seconds, f/2.8, 14mm, ISO 6400.

Heavy Atmosphere. Another image from the days I spent at Crater Lake in August under a blanket of forest fire smoke. At the time I wasn't particularly enjoying conditions, but it did allow me to create a series of images that show the lake looking unfamiliar and surreal. Forest fire is a natural and important part of the forest ecology in the northwest. For people it can range from inconvenient and oppressive to destructive and dangerous. But there is even beauty to be found in the otherwise challenging conditions.

Hand held, 1/125 second, f/11, ISO 400, 28mm focal length, polarizer.

Fire Season at Crater Lake. Smoke from lightning-caused fires in early August transformed Crater Lake into a scene from the planet mars...but with liquid water.

The smoke made everything pretty flat and brown, but using a warm white balance and doing some extensive contrast and color work brought out the filtered orange light. 1/15 second, f/14, ISO 100, 24mm focal length. A second darker exposure was blended in for the sun and bright reflection.

Today I'm sharing the photos and video instruction of +Ryan Dyar. If you aren't already familiar, definitely check out his work. I first met Ryan years ago on a cliff overlooking Palouse Falls when he was just a "bummy looking kid" (his words). Since then Ryan has established himself with his love of fantastical mountainous landscapes and a dark and ethereal look to his images, which many photographers are now emulating. So many people were requesting to learn how he gets his signature look that he decided to create some video tutorials. They do a great job of sharing his artistic vision and teaching his techniques. You can find his videos here: http://www.ryandyarphotography.com/585220/videos/

Storm Clearing In The Trinity Alps. Taken as an exhilarating afternoon thunderstorm was breaking up on a back country trip I did in the Trinity Alps with my boys and some good friends back in July. We were all caught out by the fast building thunder cell while day hiking to an upper lake. The rain and lightening was intense. Fortunately the weather was warm and we were able to take shelter under a leaning boulder. Once we made it back to camp, put on dry clothes and the rain tapered off I became mesmerized by the light and layers of clouds and headed out with the camera. Good times!

Lightweight backpacking kit: Sony NEX-7, 16-50mm kit lens, MeFOTO travel tripod, B+W polarizer. 1/6 second, f/16, ISO 100, 24mm focal length (35mm equivalent).

Thunderstorm in the Trinity Alps. A couple weeks ago I backpacked in the Trinity Alps of northern California with my kids and some friends. On a day hike above Canyon Creek Lakes we were caught out by a powerful thunderstorm. We took refuge under a large boulder for a while and then made a dash for camp. Other than getting a little wet we all made it back to camp safely, but it was a wild ride. The atmospheric conditions were so dramatic that I was compelled to stop and take a photo, however.

One exposure, hand held. Sony NEX-7, 16-50mm lens, polarizer, 1/60 second, f/4, ISO 400, 24 mm focal length (35mm equivalent).

Plitvice Waterfalls Panorama. Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is a natural wonder I have wanted to experience for many years. It's also wildly popular in the summer months so crowds can be a challenge for photography. I was additionally challenged by heavy thunderstorms. The best time to photograph is most likely early in the morning before the crowds arrive and the boardwalks begin vibrating constantly. I tried to head out at 6:00 AM the one morning I was there but the sky let loose with a downpour that trapped me in the car for an hour. The afternoon before we were caught in a thunderstorm of biblical proportions during our afternoon hike as well. I hunkered in my rain jacket for an hour waiting for it to clear. When it did stop raining there was some great light and mist and I found myself alone, the throngs having left to run for cover. It was during this quiet moment that I was able to take... more »

Things don't really slow down until November either, but at least I'll be in and out of the office to develop a few images. So many images to work on! This panorama is from sunset in Piran, Slovenia. What a gorgeous, historical, relaxed and photogenic coastal village.
