Gailen Mapes62,283Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  M - 8 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 Mapes2014-04-08 10:52:561412210CC G+
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 16:56:5721024719CC G+

Gene Bowker66,106  #Alphabetcircles  - Gene's Active Photographers on G+ *Part One: First Name A-CMeet almost 400 ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between A and C.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notNot in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.Feel free to reshare with your friends if you want, but there are NO requirements to be in this circle except for the criteria above.I'm slowly going through the rest of the Alphabet and as I complete each section I'll be sharing them in this series.  If you follow along you can easily add 1000+ photographers to your stream too.p.s. don't forget tomorrow is  #transporttuesday   Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images 2014-03-11 00:18:29394752594CC G+

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. Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... 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 22:05:0550031930CC G+

Picacho Peak State Park
Another one of the fantastic state parks we discovered in Arizona this year is Picacho Peak State Park, which is just south of Tucson. It’s a landmark we noticed last year when we were driving by and we made a point of exploring it this year. It has a beautiful campground with huge sites and some nice hiking trails.

You can actually hike right up to the top of the peak with the help of some cables! I’ve heard it’s the best hike in Arizona. But I wouldn’t really know, I didn’t go up there :)

I was too early for the wildflowers, but I managed to find a teddy bear cholla cactus to put in the foreground. You can see how it’s little pieces fall off and if you step anywhere near them they will gleefully attach themselves to you.

I’ve learned to always wear long pants and step carefully when searching for my perfect photo locationin the desert... more »

Feature in Extraordinary Vision Magazine
I am so happy that I've had another article featured in Extaordinary Vision Magazine, the #1 outdoor photography magazine in Apple’s Newsstand.

What makes me even happier is to see my name on the cover there next to +Dewitt Jones  who inspired me to find my path of using photography to see what is good and right in the world. My life has changed a lot since I saw Dewitt's videos.

Superstition Mountains
One of the best things about RVing is that you meet people along the way who tell you their stories of places they have been. It’s not hard to discover the best places to go because they keep coming up in conversation.

The Superstition Mountains in Lost Dutchman State Park, Arizona, is one of those places.

Near our campsite in Why, Arizona, I discovered there were some unusually large Chain Fruit Cholla, one of the varieties of cactus that has eluded me in photographic pursuits in the desert.

Bandon Beach Seascape
A seascape is like a breath of fresh salty air isn’t it?

I am a little tired of the cactus photos, and thought maybe you were too, so I dug up this seascape from earlier this snowbird season.

I made it in one of my favourite places in the world, Bandon Beach, Oregon.

More from Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument
One evening, just before the sunset, I found one of the craziest Organ Pipes I saw in the park! I liked how the golden rays fell on the Organ Pipe, lit up the red rock in the mountain in the background, and made the leaves on the Ocotillo glow orange.

The Organ Pipe Cactus
One of my favourite new discoveries from this snow bird season is Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in southern Arizona, the only place in the USA where the Organ Pipe Cactus grows.

The cactus gets its name from the many slender, narrow stems which rise vertically and resemble a pipe organ. A very, very big pipe organ! They can be 16 feet high and as much as 12 feet wide and live to be 150 years old.

There is a lot to see in the park and so I spent my days driving around, exploring, scouting locations, and finding perfect specimens to photograph during the good light. But one can only look at so many photos of a cactus, so I decided to pick out four of my favourites and share them all in today’s blog post.

Here is one of them. You can see the others on the blog:

Sunset on a Sleeping Princess
Our favourite new campsite is a BLM site called Gunsight Wash near Organ Pipe Catus National Monument.

In the distant hills is a formation known as the sleeping princess, and we had a great view of her right from our site as the sun set behind her.

Imagine her lying on her back, the sun setting behind her head on the left, and the rest of her body on the right.

A Typical Desert Scene
http://annemckinnell.com/2014/03/26/typical-desert-scene/

As a landscape photographer, one of the things you’ll find yourself doing a lot is waiting.

Once you find your perfect location, you must wait for the light to be just right. While you’re waiting, take a good look around. The light might not be perfect on the scene you’ve planned, but it might be perfect just behind you.

On the evening I was waiting for the last light on a Saguaro Cactus, I turned and looked behind me and saw this typical desert scene. There’s nothing particularly unique about it. Just a Chain Fruit Cholla and a bunch of scrubby brush (that’s my name for all the miscellaneous shrubs like creosote bush and brittle bush). But what was special was the light.

It’s always about the light.

Even when the subject might be considered boring,the light c... more »

Gila Woodpeckers and Saguaro Cactus
I always see Gila Woodpeckers on the Saguaros everywhere we go in Arizona. I don’t know how they manage to perch themselves against so many spiny needles! You even see them standing on the very top of the cactus as if they are smooth telephone poles. Believe me, they are anything but smooth!

I came across this Saguaro in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, where there are more Saguaros than in Saguaro National Park. With the bird’s nest cradled in its arms, the birds must feel quite protected from any predators. Still, they peck holes in the cactus and make homes inside!

I saw one of them go in a hole and I waited for a long time hoping to get a photo of the woodpecker looking out, but it wasn’t to be.

Ocotillo Abstract
At our BLM campsite in Gunsight Wash, near Organ Pipe National Monument, Arizona, it was one of those sunsets where there is just a tiny strip of colour next to the horizon.

To make the most of it, I decided to use my telephoto lens so the colours would fill the frame and then I got behind an Ocotillo cactus and used its spiny stems to make an interesting graphic design which would form a silhouette against the sky.

This is my attempt at coming up with a unique composition in the desert!

Last Light on Saguaro Cactus
On one of our first nights visiting Organ Pipe National Monument in Arizona some clouds rolled in. It was quite unusual! So Ray and I drove into the park and found an area with lots of Saguaros to photograph. There are actually more Saguaros here than in Saguaro National Park!

The light was grey, but I could see a strip of open sky near the horizon where the sun would set, so I knew that when the sun was low enough, it would light up the mountains if only for a few seconds.

In my post earlier this week, I made it sound like finding a good Saguaro was easy. Sometimes it is – it will be right there in your campsite. Other times you have to look a little harder to find a good specimen – one that you can isolate from the others and doesn’t have a bunch of scrubby brush around it.

On this night Ray and I went hiking out into a fieldonly ... more »

Chain Fruit Cholla
A cactus can be hard to photograph. Usually when I am photographing anything I am looking for a good graphic design, interesting lines and textures, and a clean background. With a cactus, you have the textures covered, but often the lines are anything but uniform and the background is often full of scrubby brush that just looks messy.

Near our campsite in Why, Arizona, I discovered there were some unusually large Chain Fruit Cholla, one of the varieties of cactus that has eluded me in photographic pursuits in the desert. Finding a good Saguaro is one thing, but finding a good Chain Fruit Cholla is quite another!

As with all plants, a big factor in making a good photograph is in finding the perfect specimen. So when I saw this Chain Fruit Cholla, with it’s green parts all at the top of the plant, and with an interesting graphic design in its branches, Ik... more »

Southwest Blue
The American southwest is so red and green, with the rocks and the cacti, except at twilight when the pastel blues of the twilight sky cover the reds and greens like a baby’s blanket.

I made this photo just down the road from our campsite in the Plomosa BLM in Quartzsite, Arizona.

Full Moon over RVs in Quartzsite, Arizona
Quartzsite, Arizona, is a small town of only a few thousand people. Until the snowbirds arrive.

In January and February the tiny town hosts over 1.5 million tourists, most of them RVers.

We arrived a few days before the giant RV show which is held in the town every year. We picked out our spot a little ways away from everyone else in one of the many BLM (Bureau of Land Management) grounds where you can boondock for free.

But as the show time got closer, more and more RVs showed up. Only a couple of days before I made this photo, this land was empty.

I thought the RVs made an interesting foreground to the spectacular full moon.

This is a single 0.4 second exposure made with my new Sony NEX6 and the 55-210mm lens.

Cholla Cactus Garden
One of the most interesting features of Joshua Tree National Park in California is the Cholla Cactus Garden.

But, it is really hard to get a good composition here. At least that’s what I found. I was disappointed with the photos I made here last year, so this year I was determined not only to be there in good light, but to find a cholla I could isolate.

One of the reasons they are so hard to photograph is that the bottoms of them have this burnt look that isn’t very attractive. When I first saw them I thought they actually were burnt, but they are all like that.

This is the “Teddy Bear” Cholla. The name is actually pretty appropriate because like a real bear, they may look nice but but believe me, you don’t want to hug it.

In fact, this type of cholla drops little pieces of itself and those pieces jump out at you as youwalk by a... more »

5 Most Common Mistakes in Wildlife Photography - and how to avoid them
Animals, especially wild ones, make such beautiful subjects that we cannot resist turning our cameras on them to capture images of these majestic creatures in their natural state.

Unlike a landscape, creatures are constantly in motion, and unlike most people, they can be pretty uncooperative when it comes to getting their picture taken. This can make for a lot of botched pictures.

In my lastest article on +Digital Photography School - dPS you'll find a few tips on how to avoid some of the common pitfalls of wildlife photography.

Joshua Tree Sunburst
Another photo from Joshua Tree National Park in California.

I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of sunbursts!

If you have the sun in your frame, you can make a sunburst effect like this just by using a small aperture. For this image, I used f/25. But remember, don’t look through the viewfinder when the sun is in your frame! Use the LCD display and save your eyes.

Belle – The Most Beautiful Campground in California?
This is one of the places I yearned to go back to this winter. Belle Campground in Joshua Tree National Park.

We’ve been to some nice campgrounds. Lots of nice campgrounds. But I always prefer the ones where we can get away from people and enjoy nature.

I particularly like ones where I can stumble out of the RV in the morning and the scenery is right there waiting for me.

This is one of those special places.

I think I could spend all winter here. Except we need to flush our tanks and pick up some water and propane once in awhile! In a place like this, we don’t leave until we have to.

Just down the way is Jumbo Rocks, where I made the photo of the best sunset ever, and the big round rocks. It’s the most popular campground, but the crowds make it less desirable to me. Plus thecampsit... more »

Finding New Compositions in Jumbo Rocks
A few months ago I wrote about how revisiting photo locations can help you grow as a photographer by forcing you to move beyond the obvious and find new compositions.

Last year when I visited Jumbo Rocks in Joshua Tree National Park I discovered, through my telephoto lens, an interesting rock formation. This year I set myself on a mission to discover new compositions with the same formation in it.

Just Three of the Many Jumbo Rocks
I think I could spend days photographing in this location. The only problem with it is that the campground bearing it’s name is extremely popular so there are always lots of people at Jumbo Rocks in Joshua Tree National Park.

Our RV it too big to fit in that campground, and I don’t think I would like being near so many people anyway, so we always stay at Belle Campground just a short drive away.

I made this photo just before the amazing sunset I shared with you earlier this week. You can see how the clouds are starting to break up and the colour is coming in. Always a good sign of a stellar sunset!

Abandoned Car in the Desert (and some fun processing techniques)
The desert has amazing powers of preservation!

Joshua Tree National Park wasn’t always a park, there used to be a few ore processing mills here in the 30′s. One of those is the Wall Street Mill which is protected as a historic site because of it’s mechanical uniqueness. The machinery is still intact.

Near the mill you can also find a few abandoned cars – antiques left over from the mining era.

It’s amazing that these cars are probably 85 years old and here they sit with a bit of rust, a few pieces missing, and some very worn out tires!

I decided to try some fun photo processing techniques on this one.

Best Sunset EVER at Jumbo Rocks
On our first night at Joshua Tree National Park, in California, the clouds looked like they had a lot of potential, and so Ray and I went to one of our favourite locations from last year’s visit, Jumbo Rocks, where we were welcomed by the most glorious sunset.

Standing on the rocks that night as the sky turned from blue to pink to red to purple was truly magical.

Of course I have a zillion photos of the sunset that night, some with more colours than this one, but I chose this one as my favourite because of the silhouette of the two people standing on top of the rocks in the distance. Those two people give scale to the image and help the viewer imagine themselves there.

On the drive home, I was thinking about all the sunsets I’ve seen, and I think this one might just be the best sunset EVER!!

Salton Sea Seagulls
The sheer number of birds of the Salton Sea is incredible. It’s partly to do with all those dead fish you saw in my post earlier this week.

By the way, I had a lot of people comment on the blog and on social media about how terrible the dead fish are. It’s actually a completely natural occurance in an otherwise unnatural sea. The summer heat causes low oxygen levels in the sea and the fish suffocate. It happens every summer.

Anyway, back to the birds … the sea is loaded with the fish, tilapia, that provide sustenance for the birds on their journey south. One million of the six millions birds that travel the pacific flyway every winter stop at the Salton Sea, and sometimes it seems like they are all in the air at one time!

At any time you can see all sorts of gulls, pelicans, egrets, avocets, sandpipers and other birds filling the sky andthe s... more »

Salton Sea Egret at Twilight
The Salton Sea has some of the best skies! When they are cloudy they are so dramatic, and when they are not cloudy they give the mostly lovely pastel shades.

It was a very peaceful evening as I watched this Great Egret strolling along the shore at the Salton Sea, California.

Somethin' Fishy: Salton Sea Tilapia
This was our second trip to the Salton Sea, so all the dead fish lining the shore were no surprise.

Since I’ve decided to only photograph beautiful things, I had to think about it twice before photographing the dead fish, but I do think they are beautiful in an odd kind of way.

They are so interesting! It probably helps that it is winter and so they don’t smell at all.

Last year I photographed close-ups of the fish, so this year I tried to make a composition that shows the enormous number of dead fish in their environment. But getting down close to the fish means you can only barely sea the water.

Sony NEX 6 Digital Camera Review
Today you can wield as much creative control with a mirrorless camera as you can with a DSLR, in a smaller package and at a smaller price.

So the question becomes which one? Well I've been lovin' my new Sony NEX 6 so perhaps my review will help you decide.

10 Most Common Mistakes in Landscape Photography – and How to Overcome Them
When we experience a place, the smells, sounds, the warmth or chill in the air, and our own emotions combine to give us an overall impression. Our job as photographers is translate that overall impression into a photograph.

Every landscape photo needs to be carefully crafted with the final image in mind.

There are many problems we run into along the way that can prevent our overall impression of a scene from shining through in the final image.

In my latest article on Digital Photography School I outline the most common traps to expect, and how you can avoid them.

Salton Sea Sunset
One of our recent boondocking spots was at Corvina Beach on the Salton Sea, California.

The Salton Sea has the most unusual beach. It looks like white sand from afar but once you step foot on it you’ll know the difference right away. Barnacles and fish bones!!

I made this image steps away from our RV at sunset one evening. It is a 1/30th second exposure which blurred the birds, but I think that gives it a bit of excitement and a feel for what it’s really like with all the birds flying around.

Great White Egret In Flight at Sunset
The Salton Sea in California is a fascinating place for it’s history and it’s unique shore, but the thing I like most about it is seeing all the birds.

It’s not Florida, but on the west coast it’s one of the best places I have found to photograph birds. In the morning they all seemed to be heading somewhere south and in the evening they all come back north again.

I just sat on the barnacled beach and photographed as they all flew past.

We had some amazing sunsets while we were there and I captured this Great White Egret on his way home at sunset.

Somewhere near the Yaqui Well Nature Trail
I made this photo when I thought I was on the Yaqui Well Nature Trail in Anza Borrego State Park, California.

Actually, I was not on the nature trail, I took a right turn somewhere and started following this wash up a mountain and I climbed up and up and up wondering where on earth the well was. I finally turned around when the sun started to go down so I wouldn’t have to find may way around all the prickly cacti in the dark!

It’s a good thing I didn’t know I was lost or I might have been worried about it.

This is an HDR image made by blending 3 exposures in Photomatix and finished in Photoshop Elements.

Sunrise at Clark Dry Lake, Anza Borrego
One of my favourite discoveries from last year’s snowbird trip is Anza Borrego State Park in California. It’s only about half an hour from Palm Springs and there are tons of excellent boondocking locations in the park.

“Boondocking,” in case you don’t know, is where you camp off the grid for free.

You wanna know the best part about boondocking in Anza Borrego State Park? Sunrise.

Surprise Elephant for a Surprise Sunset
All photographers love a beautiful sunset, but there is something disappointing that happens when there is a gorgeous sunset but you don’t have anything interesting to put in front of it.

Usually I am prepared, it is just those occasions when I didn’t expect a good sunset that I am not prepared with an equally good subject.

One of those unexpected sunsets happened recently when I driving down the road in Borrego Springs, California, but even more surprising was this giant metal elephant sculpture exactly in the right location!

I mean, how often does that happen?

Ocotillo in California's Colorado Desert
I love these Ocotillos that decorate California’s Colorado Desert. They have such strong shapes for photography, and when they flower they have beautiful red tips on their green stems.

This is a pretty typical scene in the Colorado Desert, which encompasses about 7 million acres and is a low-elevation desert with warm winter temperatures, making it perfect for us snowbirds.

Isn’t it confusing that the Colorado Desert is in California? But then again, lots of things down here aren’t what you would think. Like how this Ocotillo isn’t really a cactus and the Joshua Tree isn’t a tree.

This particular Ocotillo was in Anza Borrego State Park, one of my favourite destinations for boondocking. I’ll have many more images from Anza Borrego coming up on the blog.

Dried Palm Leaf Abstract
I am always telling my students who are developing their portfolios not to dilute the quality of their portfolio by including mediocre images. It’s better to have fewer images that all have the “wow factor” to make a better overall impression.

That sure is easier said than done though! It’s hard to put aside a whole batch of photos because they are just okay.

I just did that with the photos I made at Palm Canyon, a beautiful canyon with an oasis of palm trees in Palm Springs, California. It was a gorgeous place and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon hike there. But it was afternoon and the light was harsh, and I don’t really like the photos I made there.

Sometimes photos just need a rest and perhaps in the future I’ll find a way of processing them so I like them.

As it is, the only photo I like of the ones I made that dayis this one... more »

Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon
In between our vists to Cannon Beach and Bandon Beach, Oregon, we stopped to enjoy a sunset at Depoe Bay.

Depoe Bay is always so exciting with the crashing waves on all sides. They have a wonderfully big parking lot so it was no problem to pull in there with our RV, watch the sunset, have dinner, and continue on our way.

I took the opportunity to test out some high speed photography during low light conditions with my new Sony NEX6. I’ll have a full review coming up soon, but I think it did a pretty good job in this situation.

This photo was made at 1/1250 second, ISO 800, f/8 and I used Topaz Denoise in post processing.
