Google Science Fair2,641,831*The Science of Photography* Digital photography offers amazing flexibility to capture and modify images. But how does the science of photography actually work? What are the basic principles of light, and how do they affect how photographers shoot? How do different cameras and lenses capture images differently? And how do software tools change the way those images are ultimately viewed? Come to this Hangout On Air with +Trey Ratcliff, the world-class photographer whose work is displayed at StuckInCustoms.com. He will be interviewed by +Robert Scoble, well-known blogger, technology analyst, and amateur photographer, as well as our very own Google Student Ambassadors. Here's your chance to learn about the science behind those amazing images. Have questions for our guests? Post comments on Google+ with #GSF2013. Tuesday, May 7, 2:00PM PT / 4:00PM CT / 5:00PM ET / 2200 GMT / 2300 CE / 900 NZT (8 May) ---------- *Find out more about the #GSF2013 Hangout series:* goo.gl/H0pNq *Official Google Science Fair website:* http://goo.gl/FU1hyTrey Ratcliff - Google Science Fair 2013 Hangout On Air2013-05-07 23:00:00644

Gailen Mapes85,149Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera M - 6 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.2015-04-06 10:54:09129002

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0It is time to honor these great photographers many of whom have been shared on +Beautiful Beautiful Birds #beautifulbeautifulbirds .  This circle contains photographers both professional and amateur alike who are passionate about photography. Many are bird and wildlife photographers, although some only photograph birds and wildlife on occasion.   If you enjoy great photography, please consider adding this circle.  The photographers come from many walks of life, and from all over  the globe.   This circle is not complete, but will continue grow.  Sadly google for whatever reason will not allow more then 500 people to be shared in any one circle.  This circle was over 500 and I will need to figure out who was omitted once this is shared.  They will be the first to be placed in  the next circle that I will share.   That circle will be shared as soon as I have what I feel is a large enough circle to once again share.   Thanks for following Beautiful Beautiful Birds, and please follow those whose work make this page possible. Without their public shared this page would not be possible.Warmest Regards,+William Joers curator of +Beautiful Beautiful Birds 2015-01-08 18:34:11501848
Gailen Mapes75,030Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera M - 8 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.2015-01-08 11:24:31143000

Artist Drive, Death Valley National Park
Hazy days made for difficult photography at Death Valley National Park when I first arrived. The air was dense and the clouds and haze obscured most of the grand views.

The haze tended to lift around sunset and I got a few good shots at Devils Golf Course and Badwater Basin, but the days were pretty much a write off except for scouting locations.

On the fourth day I was in luck! The haze finally lifted and there was just enough cloud in the sky to make a photographer happy.

Sometimes waiting for the right light can take days!

I used this opportunity to photograph some of the vivid colours along Artist Drive, a scenic one way loop road with many sharp curves and deep dips.

This image comes from my favourite section of Artist Drive known as Artist’s Palette.

Tequila Agave
Another plant common in southern Texas is the agave, known as tequila or blue agave. Technically it is an “agave tequilana” although in Texas it may be better known as a blue agave since Mexico has claimed exclusive international rights to the word “tequila” and even stipulates which regions of the country the liquor may be made.

At Midlenatch Island, it was beautiful to see all the cormorants with their young in the nests. I really wanted a closer photo to show some of the interesting groupings of birds so I tried a filter to create an abstract photo.

Nesting Cormorants on Mitlenatch Island
Looking at my marine chart for the area around Campbell River, BC, I noticed a small island that is marked as a provincial park: Mitlenatch Island Nature Provincial Park. So without any further information than what was on my chart, I headed over there in Snoopy, my little power boat, to see what makes it special.

Ocotillo in Texas
I made the image below at sunset. Exposing for the sky, the ocotillo became a silhouette but the prickly pear in the foreground still has some colour. This one didn’t require any special processing, just the usual colour balance and contrast.

Balanced Rock, Texas
I made this image of “Balanced Rock” after a relaxing flat hike through the desert which ended in these steep rocks. I wanted to be there for sunset, but should have arrived a little bit earlier to allow for the sun going down behind the mountains. As it was I had only 10 or 15 minutes before the light was gone and twilight seems so short in the desert.

Photography at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument
We camped on free BLM land for a few days and then moved to Twin Peaks Campground inside the park. As soon as we got there, it started to rain and it rained for three days straight.

But staying inside the park still paid off because when the rain finally decided to stop and the clouds began to break up, I was ready.

We camped on free BLM land for a few days and then moved to Twin Peaks Campground inside the park. As soon as we got there, it started to rain and it rained for three days straight.

But staying inside the park still paid off because when the rain finally decided to stop and the clouds began to break up, I was ready.

Grapevine Hills, Texas
This is Grapevine Hills in Big Bend National Park, Texas. You have to drive 7.5 miles on an extremely bumpy road that requires a high clearance vehicle or 4 wheel drive.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument
It did indeed start raining, and so we quickly hiked back the truck before the downpour and headed back to the campground. But I couldn’t leave the dramatic clouds! Right across the campground, at the entrance to Ajo Mountain Drive, we parked and waited to see what would happen. I think it was worth the wait!

Monument Valley Tribal Park
One thing I really liked about Monument Valley is that it is a great place to photograph in the late afternoon because the clouds are usually not there in the morning hours.

Iconic Zion
I can’t help myself. When I go to a place like Zion National Park in Utah I just have to make that iconic image even though it has been photographed a gazillion times before. We, the tripod nerds (as my husband likes to call us), were lined up shoulder to shoulder on the bridge above the Virgin River at sunset, all making pretty much the same image. But still, there are lots of people who haven’t seen this place before and I like having this image in my collection.

Baby Elephant Steps
Elephants are such amazing creatures, aren’t they? Watching the elephants was my favourite thing to do during my photo safari in Tanzania. I think if I went back I would spend all my time in one place and get to know an elephant family.

Thomson's Gazelles
The Serengeti has a zen-like quality to it. Because of the openness of the area, and the simplicity of the scenes, I can imagine spending some time enjoying the peace and listening to the rustling of the grasses as they gently blow in a subtle breeze.

Seagulls and Salmon in Campbell River, BC
Some birds just get all the attention. Everyone loves the spoonbill with all their character, the colourful flamingos, the regal eagles, the elegant egrets and herons. Even the odd and somewhat ugly woodstork gets respect. But what about the lowly seagull? Are they so common as to be uninteresting?

Not to me. Especially when it’s time for a salmon feast!

Male lion with kopje in the background in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
I believe in minimalism in photography and life. It’s the principle that less is more. With my nomadic lifestyle, I have discovered the freedom that comes with owning less stuff and having the independence to travel. In photography, minimalism means creating images that are simple in design with plain non-distracting backgrounds and a simple but powerful message.

Three topi in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
When photographing wildlife it’s always tempting to get as close as you can and use the longest lens to make close-up portraits of the animals. You can do that here too. But those kinds of images could be made anywhere, even a zoo. In the Serengeti, you have the ability to use a wider angle lens and include some of the landscape in the frame to provide context without ending up with distracting elements.

Zebras at the Watering Hole
Arriving on the scene, there were hundreds of zebras! Around 30 or so at the watering hole and hundreds more milling about in the area. It was amazing how I could hear every footstep, the breathing, and snorting as the zebras moved all around us. At the watering hole, the zebras lined up for a drink with a few keeping watch.

Zebras at the Watering Hole
Arriving on the scene, there were hundreds of zebras! Around 30 or so at the watering hole and hundreds more milling about in the area. It was amazing how I could hear every footstep, the breathing, and snorting as the zebras moved all around us. At the watering hole, the zebras lined up for a drink with a few keeping watch.

Lilac Breasted Roller and Dragonfly
Sitting on prominent perches, flitting across the road flashing it’s colours, and even tumbling across the sky, the Lilac Breasted Roller likes to be noticed. It really doesn’t need to try so hard with it’s stunning bright colours of turquoise, blue, pink, yellow, tan and green.

Giraffe in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

With the vast open plains of golden grasses and big blue skies, the central Serengeti creates a minimalist background like no other place I have been to. In fact, the word serengeti means “endless plains” and at over 14,000 square kilometers the plains do seem to go on forever.

Devil’s Cornfield, Death Valley National Park

I made this image in the early evening just as the light began to soften, but while there was still plenty of light illuminating the mountains and making the stacks of arrowweed appear golden. I was heading to the sand dunes for sunset, so I didn’t spend much time here. I just pulled off to the side of the road for a few quick shots.

Two Lions Walking Away
When I first saw the Serengeti I was struck by how plain and flat it looked. It was so flat that I thought it wasn’t possible for there to be so many animals there. Surely, if a giraffe was there I would be able to see it standing tall above the grasses. But it is amazing how the animals camouflage themselves. You can’t see them at first, but they are definitely there.

Wildlife Photography in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania – Part 1
In this photo of an elephant between two acacia trees, I saw the elephants heading in that general direction and asked the driver to position the vehicle so I would have a good angle to photograph the trees and hoped an elephant would cooperate and walk past them.

Bighorn Sheep
The Bighorn Ram stared at me for awhile and then started ascending the hill. They really blend into the background! If it wasn’t so quiet in the desert, I might not have heard the tumbling rocks and missed it altogether!

Artist Drive, Death Valley National Park
Hazy days made for difficult photography at Death Valley National Park when I first arrived. The air was dense and the clouds and haze obscured most of the grand views.

The haze tended to lift around sunset and I got a few good shots at Devils Golf Course and Badwater Basin, but the days were pretty much a write off except for scouting locations.

On the fourth day I was in luck! The haze finally lifted and there was just enough cloud in the sky to make a photographer happy.

Sometimes waiting for the right light can take days!

I used this opportunity to photograph some of the vivid colours along Artist Drive, a scenic one way loop road with many sharp curves and deep dips.

This image comes from my favourite section of Artist Drive known as Artist’s Palette.

Devils Golf Course, Death Valley National Park
The section known as Devils Golf Course rarely receives any rainfall and so the salt crystals continue to grow and form pinnacles that are now about 3 feet deep.
