Gailen Mapes66,348Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  F-H - 25 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-07-25 10:27:31183001CC G+

Location portrait photography in Tokyo, Japan: a shoot with Ayuko Izumi

Full write-up on this recent shoot is here:
http://japanorama.co.uk/2014/02/17/using-tokyo-as-my-studio-ayuko-izumi/

The shot below is one of my faves from the shrine portion of the shoot, although we covered kimono, casual and her all in black with one of her swords.

Great day out. Very happy client who i fully involved in the whole process.. enough for her to say she'd never been so educated by any photographer before.

For me that underlines a lot of stuff: as photographers we can't expect our clients to understand the value in our profession, in our 'eye', in our vision and skills unless we educate them.

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

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.

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.

Manhattan from the Rockefeller Centre

This is part of a huge panorama I shot whilst in NYC last year. Made this one into a 16x9 widescreen crop as I liked it that way.

The original panorama I made was shot for Haneda Airport, as part of a series of pans and fashion shots made in various countries. They have had some of the content running on a 16metre video screen [made up of 36 4K panels] in the new terminal, which opened in April this year. 

The pan that got made for the Haneda screen was just over 16000pixels at 72dpi. At 300dpi it was over 30,000pixels - and in colour, not monochrome.

Charlie goes analogue

It's not often that daddy shoots film but Charlie's patient enough to respond to the process. Even patient enough when the camera shooting the film is 4x5 Tachihara 'Hope', large-format camera.. that is a little more complicated and time-consuming than a point-and-shoot.

I'd trawled the second-hand camera shops for a while, trying to find a Polaroid 500 back that worked well. The first couple were duds; the rollers inside were slightly warped and when you pulled the print out, they squeezed only the edges of the chemical pack.

The back I have now is good and I found it with half a pack of film still inside; the Fuji FP100C a bit aged, which gave off a nice colour hue.

Well done for hanging in there whilst daddy was underneath the dark-cloth..... :-)

Fashion photography in Japan: Akari in Yokohama

This is one from a while back, shot just before the end of Akari's last trip to Japan. She'd asked me to shoot some pics with her new husband, Trevor. We did those and then I shot a few pics of Akari on her own.

We'd first met and worked together a few years before, when Akari modelled at a woskhop I ran - also in Yokohama. The first time we'd shot in the wonderful and ecclectic area of Yokohama called Hinodecho. You can see one of those pics here.

http://blog.alfiegoodrich.com/akari-hinodecho-yokohama/

The pic above was taken down on Osanbashi Pier, the cruise-liner dock and public open space that sits between the old red-brick warehouses of Minato-Mirai and Yamashita Park.

Great spot. Beautiful place just to hang out but a great area to shoot pictures in, not just because of the... more »

The Night Before the Workshop: Hyuga, Kyushu, Japan

Just dug this photo out of an old folder, as today I have been putting together some materials for another fashion workshop I am doing later this year in the same location.

This was shot with my Nikon D700 from my hotel room in Hyuga, the night before the fashion workshop I was running kicked off, back in October 2012.

This year's workshop will be announced soon but here's a few, teaser, details ahead of that announcement..

I'll be doing the workshop in conjunction with Hasselblad Japan and there'll be Hasselblad digital cameras for people to use on the workshop.

We'll have two models from Tokyo and probably one from Kyushu.

There'll be some great props and clothing to use, donated and loaned by sponsors. One awesome prop has four wheels... more »

Shinagawa Station, Konan end of the concourse. Two hours before sunset [at this time of year it's around 4.30-4.45pm] the sun comes through into the atrium in a most magical way....

Definitely a place to check out if you are in this part of town at this time of day.

First test shot with the Mamiya RB 127mm on Nikon D800E

This was just a quick shot as I left the camera shop in my neighbourhood.

Am going out to teach a lesson for one of my students later, so I will shoot a few more tests with the setup then.

Very pleased with this lens so far. This is shot with the aperture wide open, focusing on the washing hanging on the balcony.

I like the colour too.

Mamiya RB Lenses on Nikon

Picked up a lovely and cheap lens yesterday which I am testing out on the Nikon. 

I used to shoot both the Mamiya RB and RZ 67 cameras back in my art-college and film-shooting days. 

The lenses for the RB can be found really cheaply these days but using them on the Nikon requires a special adaptor that has a focus helicoid and a way of priming the in-lens shutter and keeping the aperture open.

Took a few test shots with this setup yesterday and looking forward to shooting some portraits with this lens.

So sharp even wide open at f/3.8. And at that aperture the bokeh is beautiful too.

Polaroid shot with the Tachihara 4x5

After trawling the junk boxes at camera shops, finally got me a Polaroid 550 back that works !!!!  Had several where despite all cleaning, fixing and attempts at repair, the rollers that pinch the chems when you pull the print out were just too slack and wouldn't spread the chems evenly.

Gonna shoot some portraits with it this afternoon and the Tachihara 4x5.

Charlie helped me test it out this morning.

This is expired film... hence the colour.

Long time, no post: out in Tokyo with my muse

Been having one of those patches recently, where life just sort of gets in the way of being online. No bad thing in many respects but, apologies to you folks here who like seeing what I am up to.

I've had a fair amount of work recently, have been spending some time with my family and have also been feeling a bit below par. That's all conspired to create a situation where, when I have had free time, I just wanted to spend it doing absolutely nothing.... which is very unlike me.

But, feeling much more energised these past few days and a after finishing up at the hospital today [blood test], I hooked up with +Shinyong Lee for a spot of lunch, a chat about some ideas we are working on and a bit of future planning. 

She had a nice outfit on, was charged up about life and wanted a couple of picst... more »

New business card makes me proud of my eldest son

I shot a pic of my eldest son, Joe, the other week... just an iPhone shot but a great moment: makes me feel, with him today starting a new school, like in this shot he's looking out onto his future.

So, I put it on the reverse side of my new business card. Makes me feel super proud every time I hand one out.

Of course, I feel proud of all three of my kids.... but the first one is always kind of special in another way.

Looking towards Shinjuku: Shibuya Hikarie Building, Tokyo

I love the Hikarie Building and one of the main reasons is that the light around sunset is always so wonderful.

Plus you have a couple or three amazing windows on the 11th Floor 'Sky Lobby' which are great to shoot people against.

Took this yesterday. Earlier it had rained heavily. The skies cleared and the light was wonderful.

Sakura Season, 2014: Shinagawa Inter-City

What with living here for seven years and coming and going for more than double that, I've seen the sakura in Japan maybe 10 or 12 times now. 

This year I have a personal project for shooting the blossoms. This shot isn't a part of that but I couldn't not take this scene and with anyone's photography, alongside the 'project' there should always be room for single shots. Often the trend recently has been for projects, projects, projects... it's tiresome. 

I shot this whilst doing a lesson with someone. A lot of the time I don't even take my camera with me when I teach. I prefer the 'golf pro' approach to teaching photography: the golf pro doesn't bring his clubs to the lesson. He teaches you with yours. If the student is struggling, the best thing is to shoot something witht... more »

My son taking in the view at Shibuya Hikarie Building

This building hasn't been open for so long and it never fails to deliver. I usually always head here if I'm in the area around sunset.

With today's weather - rain and high winds earlier - there were great skies once the worst had passed.

Joe had never been inside before.

Shot this on the iPhone 5C.

Cup Ramen Shooting, Volume 2: Shinyong Under the Railway Tracks

What is cup ramen shooting Well, it was a phrase that +Shinyong Lee first mentioned after we'd done a shoot recently which had been so quick. Cup-ramen, or instant noodles in Japan, takes between 3 and 5 minutes to make once you have added boiling water. The last two shoots Shinyong and I have done have been so quick.. so the instant noodle analogy has sort of stuck.

Today's shoot was done to send to Japanese fashion designer, Junko Koshino. Koshino-sensei is soon making a dress especially for Shinyong. The jacket in this shot is a Koshino design. We just wanted to make a shot for Koshino-sensei, with a piece of her clothing and to introduce my photography to her. 

The accent of the shot was to be red: red lips, red nails. The red flash was my idea.

Japan three years after 3/11: photography raising funds for Tohoku

Everyone who lives in Japan, has friends here or who was visiting on 11th March, 2011, spends this day remembering. There are still a lot of people suffering, still a lot that has not changed, still many questions that have gone unanswered, still a disaster going on for many people. The MyJapan initiative, at the time and since, sought to create a space where people with images of Japan could share them with a view to raising funds for Tohoku. Two books were made. Exhibitions were held. A lot of money has been raised. It's been a joy to be involved.

Here's one of mine from the collection. I had the privilege of seeing this printed out very large, as the centerpiece of the first MyJapan show. It's raised a fair bit of cash on its own, this shot. That makes me very happy. As a photographer not shooting... more »

Final shot of the day with Cynthia

It was blowing a gale and not exactly what you'd call 'warm'. But, with our model in the mood and Shinyong holding the softbox down we set about getting the finale shot on last week's shoot.

Wanted this shot for a while. Shinyong has a great rooftop to her flat. One shouldn't really be up there but as long as we're safe, the building management people don't seem to mind.

Gear?

Gratuitous bag shot:Osaka

Heading off to the client in a minute for a day of shooting architecture, interiors, panoramas and coming up with something funky of their new building in Osaka.

Heavy bag. But a happy bag..... :-)

Cynthia by the station: Tokyo

This is one of those spots in Tokyo that I go past often and think about what I could do with it. 

I've taken a few shots here, of strangers. This is the first time I got a model in the same spot. +Cynthia Popper worked the place perfectly.

I love the way the light comes down from between the railway tracks. And I love the shape of the opening to the sky.

All the lines here really work.

Cynthia and I had come from Shimbashi on the train and were walking back to Shinyong's place, to do a change of clothes and the last shot of the day.

Glad we cracked off a few shots here. Very much worth it.

Cynthia Popper: one from last week's shoot

Just a quick edit of one of the shots that +Cynthia Popper and I shot last week.

This one was shot on the train between Shimbashi and Hammamatsucho. We'd done a few shots at the station, including one cut that I have had in my head for years: shooting a model on the platform with the city behind her.

Nice shoot. Lovely lady. Will be posting more of the shots soon... but this is turning into a busy week; shooting in Tokyo today and have two days of shooting in Osaka from tomorrow.

The last one of these CD layouts, for now

I have had a lot of fun doing this project and I hope the people who came along like what we were able to make from their lovely shots.

This one is from +Matthias I. Lambrecht. Great work, sir. Love the yellow. Love the tree shots. You definitely got your head around what was necessary for this workshop. Some of the building shots you turned in were wonderful too. But the strong, repeating patterns weren't working so well for text overlay, so they didnt make the cut. But.. great stuff. Thanks a lot.

Latest two layouts from the 'shooting artwork for a classical music CD' workshop

Going to put these all in an article when I am done with them. But here are the latest two: blue flavoured one from Paul Tsai; red/snowy/leaf one from Dennis Hrebtov.

I decided to try something different with Dennis' layout. The pic has a lot more tone in it than the version he sent. I managed to pull a lot of detail out of the snow.

Thought it might be fun to just use one photo across the whole package.

One more CD layout from the workshop

Got on a bit of a roll with these today and this is made from shots taken by Paul Thompson. 

His panned shot of the police car just had to be the cover. Such a great moment he captured.

Lovely work, Paul.

Another great result from our recent CD packing photography workshop

Hat's off to +Celia Rae for her great shots.

Real pleasure laying this one out. Probably going to re-format +Jason Arney's recent layout. As I have moved the logo from the front to the back. Jason served-up some great shots but I felt I didn't quite get the layout right.

Anyway. This post belongs to Celia. Awesome work.

And I think I really got back to my roots.. this one has a real flavour of covers I actually worked on whilst General Manager of Black Box Music in London.

Photography workshops in Tokyo: From Atriums to Alleyways: The Architecture of Yurakucho and Ginza

An architectural photography walk with the aim of producing images for an A4, 6-sided, fold-out pamphlet to act as introduction and schedule for a fictional festival of architecture, to be held in the International Forum. 

Participants will be provided with a PDF example pamphlet beforehand. On this walk we’ll be learning some skills in shooting Tokyo’s architecture and what is necessary to produce various stills for the pamphlet (landscape and portrait aspect ratios, details and establishing shots, encapsulating the variety of the area’s buildings in a limited number of photographs).

Special note: We will have, on loan from Hasselblad, one of their H5D digital medium-format cameras, fitted with their brand-new 50MP CMOS Hasselblad back. We'll have 28mm and100mm ... more »

First Finished CD Digipak Layout From Recent Workshop

The brief was to produce images for a music CD package design, for the music of composer Toru Takemitsu.

This finished layout is made up from pics by +Jason Arney. 

I did the layout, typography etc.

Thanks, Jason. Great shots. Like this a lot. Still beating myself up a bit about some of the text elements. But I am a perfectionist. It's a curse.

Photography Workshops in Tokyo: What's Your Angle?

This workshop is scheduled for Saturday 22nd February.

What's Your Angle?

Viewpoint is everything. Sure, there are a thousand things that could make a picture great but it’s very often when the photographer adopts a unique viewpoint on their subject that begins to set their photos firmly apart from others.

On this walk we’ll be looking at how you train your eye to seek out that ‘killer angle’. As well as what we can do with just our eyes and brains (looking down, looking straight up, getting low, putting ourselves in the action, stepping back) we’ll be examining what we all have in our camera bags to help us in our quest for a different point of view; a wide lens, a telephoto, a different viewfinder.

Fee for the workshop: 5000Y

Density: Osaka

Got this out of the window on the 27th floor of the Imperial Hotel in Osaka last year, whilst I was on my lunch break at a shoot I was doing for a regular client.

Been up to various high floors of The Imperial before but this day the weather and light were perfect.

Focal length of 80mm lens helps compress the perspective nicely, to enhance that feeling of density. But it's dense already; doesn't need much help from me :-)

You can see the Osaka Loop Line, the orange train, going through the middle of the left-hand side of the shot. I was waiting for that. I'd seen it once and waited for it to come back and in the part of the city where you could see more of the train than anywhere else in the frame.

Location portrait photography in Tokyo, Japan: a shoot with Ayuko Izumi

Full write-up on this recent shoot is here:
http://japanorama.co.uk/2014/02/17/using-tokyo-as-my-studio-ayuko-izumi/

The shot below is one of my faves from the shrine portion of the shoot, although we covered kimono, casual and her all in black with one of her swords.

Great day out. Very happy client who i fully involved in the whole process.. enough for her to say she'd never been so educated by any photographer before.

For me that underlines a lot of stuff: as photographers we can't expect our clients to understand the value in our profession, in our 'eye', in our vision and skills unless we educate them.

Tokyo Tower In The Snow

I shot these two studies of the Tower in the snow of 8th February, on my way from Hammamatsucho over to Azabu and Roppongi.

The red, the lines, the flakes of snow.. all seemed to make for a wonderful combination of colours, textures and atmosphere.

Panorama from Cape Manzamo, Okinawa, Japan

On Friday evening I was shooting a job in Okinawa for a client. I sorted myself out to have Saturday on the island as well, which turned out to be a good move seeing as Tokyo had another day of intense snow that grounded most of the flights back into Haneda Airport. 

As it turned out, although I missed the opportunity to shoot some more wonderful snow shots in Tokyo, I spent Saturday cruising a few of the nice spots on the west coast of Okinawa. 

Temperatures reached 20 degrees later in the day, in stark contrast to the weather back home in Tokyo. The morning was super windy and it made for some dramatic clouds and wonderful atmosphere along the coast.

One of the first spots I stopped in on Saturday morning was Cape Manzamo. The southern end of the coast there is the most photographed, but just north oft... more »

Never one to pass up the chance of a quick shoot, Shinyong posed for a few quick snaps yesterday.

We’d just finished a meeting over at a friend’s cafe in Asagaya, so with just a few minutes to spare in Shinyong’s busy day we headed towards the station and on the way shot a few fashion snaps.

Tokyo's biggest snowfall since 1969: battling home with mum

I got to Roppongi about 4.30pm, holed-up somewhere for a coffee for about 45mins and then headed out again.

I'd basically stopped using anything other than my old 20mm manaul-focus Nikon lens. I've had it since I was about 20 years-old. It's an old friend. Very small. Great for zone focussing [setting a range of distances on the lens according to which aperture one is shooting at], it's old and it's manual... so there is nothing to go wrong even if it gets totally soaking wet... which it did.

This spot outside the station was perfect for shooting the people battling the strong winds and snow, as there was a lot of light coming out of a nearby shop and there was a good flow of people.

Backlight or just good light really helps illuminate the snow at night, making... more »

Tokyo's biggest snow since 1969: by the Tokyo Tower

Saturday saw the biggest drop of snow in the capital since 1969 which, coincidentally, was the year of my birth.

I went out for a walk about 2pm, starting at Hammamatsucho and walking up through Zojoji Temple, past the Tokyo Tower and ending up in Roppongi. 

Many other places I could have gone but I was meeting a friend for dinner in Azabu and didn't want to be too far away from that objective in case the snow really came down.. which it did.

Getting home after dinner was a bit of an adventure.
