Gailen Mapes68,083Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 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 +2014-09-25 10:32:18192234

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream.

Fashion photography in Japan; Mari Hirao in Kanagawa

Some of the results of my shoot last week with Mari Hirao, a Kobe-born model based here in Tokyo.

Supremely talented and focused model who is constantly helping to drive the creativity of each and every shot. A joy to work with. 

I am looking forward to the next shoot already.

Shooting for Aston Martin Racing & Hasselblad Japan

One of the shots I got the other week whilst shooting with Hasselblad Japan at the WEC 6 Hours of Fuji race.

Was very impressed how the H5D-50c coped with this sort of subject matter. Shot this at 800ISO and with the 80mm f/2.8 AF lens set to manual-focus, prefocused on the area of the track where the cars were passing.

Shot four or five and was trying to time it so that I got the car at the end of the position box, used when the cars line up for the start. Nailed it with this one... so that the lines of the box look like speed streaks coming from the rear of the car.

Great day out. Lots of fun to shoot with the H5D-50c and the CFV50 back on an old 500CM camera.

Big thanks to Aston Martin Racing for all of their help and hospitality on the day.

Recent Workshop: Shooting monochrome in-camera for the day

A few of my shots from last week's workshop 'Expressing Myself in Monochome'. Making a magazine layout from other people's shots now, which will be done in the next day or so.

Little explanation about the workshop here too.

Was a great event and people got some lovely shots. Look forward to sharing those with you in the next few days.

Interview with Photoblog HK in Hong Kong

These folks were quick getting this up! Yesterday I sent in the answers to their questions, suggested a few pieces of work and they've picked a few more to feature too.

Nice piece. Like the disparate selection of photos they decided to feature.

Big thanks to +Nok Chan at Photoblog.HK for the opportunity.

+Shinyong Lee: there are a couple of shots of you here. :-)

In passing: lady in the subway, Tokyo

Haven't been doing much personal photography recently but got these two snaps yesterday, heading from Omotesando to Shimbashi  on the subway.

Shooting the D800 without the grip at the moment, for anything where I don't need a big lens or a lot of vertical shooting... because I sliced into the base of my little finger with a broken glass, whilst washing up. Very painful. Had five stitches and it's been proving quite a challenge to shoot this week.

Having auto-focus points clustered around the centre of the viewfinder is super annoying for me, as it compromises composition especially with moving subjects.  

This article explains a little of the science of the DSLR and explains why it is difficult/costly to get a more full-frame coverage of AF points. It's not all the science or all the facts, but it's a start of an explanation for those who get frustrated by having all the AF points in the middle of their viewfinder.....

Shamisen masters, high fashion, still photography.... all in this new ebook

My first ebook: a collaboration with Shinyong and with 'Hayate', a shamisen band which is a three-man band formed from the nine-member, world-renowned Yoshida Brothers group.

Loads of great stills, exclusive interview with the band and contributions from +Shinyong Lee about the concept of the video and about the dress that was made especially for the video, by none other than Junko Koshino.

Ebook on sale now at a special price. Picking it up between 28th and 30th September means you'll get it at the special price and help us get a good ranking on Amazon.

Was a lot of fun to shoot for and design the book.

Full details here, including the video that was being produced the day I shot the stills.

My eldest son, Joe, running the relay this week

Joe started high-school this April and turned 13 this month. At his previous school he was fastest in the 100m and ran for the school at the local, area, meet. 

Now he's at his new school, he's got to make up some pace but his shape is good on the track. That's him wearing '13', outside lane, top left.

He made up two places, running third leg in the relay, but the team were already at the back... so his effort at least clawed them back from last. He ran quick.

He's started doing the long-jump too and am looking forward to working on his technique with him on that. He's the tallest boy in his year, at 168cm, so if he gets the technique right, he could do well at the jump.

This shot?

He's started doing the long-jump too and am looking forward to working on his technique with him on that. He's the tallest boy in his year, at 168cm, so if he gets the technique right, he could do well at the jump.

Still some places left on the Hasselblad workshop in Japan

All levels of photographer welcome....

Still some places left on the workshop in Kyushu next month. Looking forward to the fun we'll have making some awesome location fashion images.... all levels of photographer welcome. This is certainly NOT about needing to be an expert with a camera.

View within a view: mirror, Chichibu, Saitama, Japan

I am a big collector of various things here in Japan. Well, a collector of pictures of things. Less space to actually collect things these days.

The list includes road-cones, cars covered with sheets, umbrellas and mirrors. 

This mirror caught my eye recently in Chichibu. Stopped the car [safely, off the bend] and went back to get a shot.

Liked the light, loved the reflection.

See a whole set of pics from the day out, here:

Bear left: roadsign in Chichibu, Saitama, Japan

One of the shots from a recent day out myself and my son had around Chichibu, north west of Tokyo.

Loads more in this gallery on my site, including a load of shots of old cars in a scrapyard we found on the way home: VW campers, Oldsmobile, Metro van etc etc. Quite a collection.

A quick shot of Cynthia at the Forum

Caught up with +Cynthia Popper for lunch and wandered around for a little bit. She'd never been in the International Forum in Yurakucho. Light was great so I got a quick shot or three of here there.

Here's one of my faves. Sat down for a little bit, back in the Forum, and edited it. Free wi-fi here... always good. :-)

Feature I shot recently for Scoot Airlines' Magazine

This was a fun challenge, to shoot some of Tokyo's quirky cafes from a top-down perspective.

These are busy cafes that only give you a limited time to shoot, although they were very co-operative in having me there. But I couldn't spend long in each place.

And, how do you get shots from the ceiling without getting in people's way and without attaching cameras to the ceiling?

As a lot of places won't let you shoot the actual customers, my wife, eldest son and daughter made it into this shoot as well....

Gear packed, off to the Lexus shoot soon

It's been two years almost exactly since I was down at Toyota's studios in Aichi-ken. Back down there as of this evening, for a three day shoot for Lexus.

Two bodies, 11 lenses, three strobes, two soft boxes, computer and drives, miscellaneous other crap.

All the studio lighting is already on site, including the massive Fisher Softbox. Always a thrill having one of those to play with.

Must now remember to throw some clothes in another bag :-)

Looking forward to catching up with +Mark Stepp again and his awesome team.

Stekki Magazine: Fashion Shoot with Mari Hirao

Latest edition of my online magazine, Stekki, is available, now

This edition features shots from the fashion shoot I did with Mari Hirao last week.

90% of the shots are different to the ones I put up in an article on my website earlier this week, so if you have already seen those then do come look at the magazine as it is pretty much all new stuff.

Thanks a lot.

My new Soundcloud Page

Haven't made any tunes since about 1999 so I got GarageBand yesterday and am getting back into making some music.

The two tracks there now are just me playing and getting used to the software and playing the synths on the Mac keyboard. Sometime later this week I will get a MIDI keyboard for the laptop. Much easier.

Anyway, if you have time.. check it out.

Thanks.

From the archives: Tokyo in infra-red

Four years ago I had the loan of an infra-red converted Nikon D300 and spent a few weeks shooting various subjects.

This shot has been published in several magazines, most recently in Air Mexico's inflight magazine.

I first used infra-red back in the film days when mostly it was the back and white film I was shooting. 

Using the Nikon was a blessed release from the myriad of challenges of infra-red film, which included....

..wrapping the camera in tin-foil to stop y¥the heat from your face fogging the film

..wrapping the developing tank in foil to avoid the heat from your hands fogging the film

etc etc

For white balance when using this Nikon DSLR I was using the 'custom' feature and setting WB from any nearby patch of green grass. Itc... more »

For white balance when using this Nikon DSLR I was using the 'custom' feature and setting WB from any nearby patch of green grass. It created shots that were predominantly of a brown spectrum, which allowed me - through Photoshop - to create 'false colour' shots like this.

Great fun andI would love to get one of my cameras converted, which is easy enough and not crazy expensive.

Music photography in Tokyo, Japan: Little Dynamite Sex & Android Baby

Last night I went out to shoot two bands at Shibuya's 'Aube' venue.

Once upon a time all I did was music photography. 

Over the years I have shot pics of the likes of Joe Strummer, Peter Gabriel, Roger Waters, Issac Hayes and a whole feast of others.

Gotta say, it’s nice to be back in front of the stage. I plan to make it a regular thing from now on.

At the link below, there is a gallery with a load of last night’s shots. None have seen Photoshop but they have had a little tweak in Nikon’s ViewNX software, then just exported to JPEG.

Fashion photography in Tokyo: Mari Hirao in colour

Another shot from our very brief little test shoot yesterday. The light in the Hikarie Building is amazing from around 4.30pm in the summer, streaming in through the huge floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Was shooting this to get the light just under the blind flaring straight into the lens. Really helped the summery feeling of the shot. 

Next time I will take a cloth with me, to wipe all the hand-prints off of the window! :-)

Fashion model in Tokyo: first shoot with Mari Hirao

Mari and I are doing a shoot next week but we met up today in Shibuya to choose some clothes.

I couldn't resist one quick photo shoot with her whilst we were in this part of town.

So, we headed to my favourite building in Shibuya - the Hikarie building - to make a couple of quick shots.

This one was shot in monochrome in the camera but we just edited it quickly together, using a preset I made in Nik's Analog Efex Pro 2.

Fashion photography workshop with Hasselblad Japan

Delighted to announce the first of a series of workshops I will be doing in conjunction with Hasselblad.

This first one will be in Kyushu, Japan, at the end of October this year. 

A variety of Hasselblads will be provided including the new 50C, CV50, and the 60MP backs. We may have the old square format CV16 [I think that was it's number]. We will have H5D bodies, maybe some old film bodies to put the new CV50 backs on.

ProFoto are providing the flash gear, Caterham have given us a sports-car for the workshop as well.

You can of course also bring your own cameras but there will plenty of gear for everyone.

8 participants, working in pairs with a camera for each pair.

The Driver

Spotted on a walk I did last week between Yurakucho and Shinbashi.

Good light coming down through a gap in the two sections of the railway bridge overhead. Just picking out the guy in the car.

The Toyota Century is the car of choice of both the slightly more old-school gangster and the politician. 

This is the model that got made from 1997 onwards. Personally I like the older ones.

It's powered by a Japanese-built 5.0L V12 engine.

All laid out below me: International Forum, Tokyo

The first time I visited this building was in 1999 but I can still find new photos. 

Was there last week with one of my students and got this shot. The light was just perfect.

Now, THAT is a hat! - after the parade, Yokohama

I was down in Yokohama for a few hours yesterday, doing a lesson with one of my regular students. 

Whilst we were in the little park in ChinaTown, we spotted this guy - whom we'd seen earlier but hadn't got a chance to shoot.

There was a festival and parade; this fella had been on his bicycle in the parade. Very happy and very happy to have his photo taken.

Myself and my student didn't stick around for the fireworks and by the time I'd got home and was in a position to get up on my roof and watch the lightning, I'd missed shooting the best of that.

No matter, you can't do everything in one day and getting a nice shot of this fella was good enough for me.

I did, however, get some nice shots of people battling the torrential rain near my local station.... more »

Panorama of Shibuya from Hikarie Building

This is a fairly rough and ready panorama, shot in just a couple of minutes yesterday.

This is a 4000px shot which you can zoom into:

- use your mouse wheel to zoom in or out
- click and drag to pan right, left, up or down

The weather was crap. I shot the original images in monochrome but they are obviously RAW so I have colour versions. But weather really was grey and horrible yesterday so there isn't much point in wasting time on making a colour stitch.

Next time I go back, when there weather is good, I will shoot with the D800E. I just had the D800 with me yesterday. 

A few details about the shot:

Stitched using 40 images shot with Nikon D800
Shot with Nikkor 50mm f/1.2Ai @ f/5.6
Original, stitched image is 35,000 pixels wide

There are some very far from perfect sections in this image, caused by my not paying so much attention to dealing with window reflections and by shooting down at an angle through the glass, where the tickness of the glass was causing some of the blurring.

When I go back I will take my black cloth [from the large format camera, which I use to put over my head when shooting] and cut out all reflections.

Gonna pick a great day and go back and shoot a proper shot in colour, as Shibuya is changing so rapidly now with the removal of the Tokyu Store, Toyoko Line station. The Ginza line will soon be moved to another bridge and new skyscrapers started.

Exciting times in Shibuya. And this building is a great vantage point to watch it all from.

There is an 11,000 pixel version here at dropbox if you want to download it. The link is public so anyone can grab it from there, without needing an account. It's 17mb.. so it'll take a while to load. Be patient :-)

Fashion photography in Japan: Ruri in Mimitsu, Miyazaki-ken, Kyushu

One from the archives, as I was going through some files today and realised I hadn't really ever posted many on here from the shoot I did in May of last year with Ruri.

Details are just about to go live about the late autumn fashion workshop I will be doing in this same area, in conjunction with Hasselblad. I'll post a link to the news release on their website as soon as it's live.

This was a lovely spot but a little scary: top of a 10metre high harbour wall near the heritage village of Mimitsu.

This wasn't shot on a Hasselblad [I just like squares and I love the Hassie border, which was scanned in from an old slide I shot years ago].

There will be lots of lovely Hassies to play with on the workshop.... looking forward to it.

This shot?... more »

Vertical Panorama in the Shibuya River, shot in 2009

Seeing +Takahiro Yamamoto's recent shots from the Shibuya River reminded me of shots I did there back in 2009. My HDR work has come on a lot since then but I think this one's ok.

Interesting place which, with the development happening in Shibuya, is going to change a lot in the coming years.

Time tunnel: Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo, Japan

After recently shooting some frames just like this for a client, I found myself on the train gong over the Rainbow Bridge again yesterday; this time with a student, on our way to do some shooting in Odaiba.

Great spot for some long exposures. The end of the bridge nearest Odaiba, as it curves around to the right, being the best spot.

Shelly Han: shoots a special edition of Stekki Magazine in Tokyo

Great photos from Shelly Han, a political policy person and part-time portrait photographer who I did a tour/lesson for recently.

We approached the whole day as an assignment, from which I produced this special edition of the magazine.

Stekki magzine: Special edition with Cynthia Popper

So, the magazine..... the 160pp version has been intimidating me for a while but the text is just about all done and it'll be ready very soon. Got so busy recently. But, have made two small, special editions today and made another yesterday. Two are being checked by the people whose work is featured and will be live tomorrow.

This one is ready to rock and features the wonderful and very talented, +Cynthia Popper 

The pics are some from a shoot we did a few months back. Thanks for your hard work that day, Cynthia.
