Alan Shapiro3,011,367I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making the best bags in the world.)Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0081

Gailen Mapes73,392Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 11 of 31*Note: 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-11 11:51:41177001

Although this circle is not completed it is the circle of fine photographers who have had one of more photos shared on the all new #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds page.  Please note that this circle will continue to expand and will be re-shared as it grows. Just a note of appreciation to all these fine photographers, thanks for allowing me to share your fantastic work. I will be away for a few days ( until Nov. 24th ) and will not be able to post any additional photos until my return.  Sharing this circle is highly encouraged and appreciated, adding the hash tags to my page is appreciated as well, but please know it is not required to be showcased here. If you are a photographer of birds and have high quality photos you share publicly, please consider adding #beautifulbeautifulbirds +Beautiful Beautiful Birds to your circles, as it will help me find you in the future. Lastly, to all the fine bird loving photographers, may you be blessed with more and greater captures,Respectfully,+William Joers 2014-11-18 13:54:1216714417

Gailen Mapes71,115Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera 5 - 11 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-11 11:53:11177003

There are moments when she'll walk in to a room, levitate a few inches off the floor, every door in the house will slam shut and it will grow so cold you can see your breath as the pounding in your heart grows deafening.
   And then there are the moments where I see all that she has become and know all that she will accomplish in the world.

Here's what I know: the reward for living through "impossible", is knowing all that is "possible"

Comings, goings and dark tunnels (albeit with a beautiful ceiling)

Funny how sometimes I can ascribe so much meaning to a single image. I see a parable, a fable and an epic Norse poem. What I don't see is how the story ends.

I have spent a lifetime loving my city of New York, despite living in and loving several elsewheres (Providence, Boston, Vienna, Paris, Banff...) and feel like I want some permanent reminders in my daily life.
   I recently met very talented photographer and ILFORD Master Printer +Alan Winslow who spoke so eloquently and emotionally on the art and craft of printing. As he spoke, I was flipping through his portfolio of prints and it took my breath away. There was a depth of detail, a richness and a specialness that came from holding a flawless print on fine paper. Going into our meeting, I didn't understand why I might want to print my own work but I'm starting to feel the pull.

He piqued my interest (and makes me want to take his workshops and share his knowledge with you all) and so I thought I'd begin a little journey (that I hope will turn into an epic one). I am going to discover the thrill of printing; taking something I've seen and turning it into something I can share physically (vs digitally). Creating something I can touch, frame and hang or hand to people I care about knowing that I totally controlled the process from beginning to end. To me, it seems like it might make my art feel that much more loved.
   Perhaps it's simply because I have none of my own work hanging on my walls and need to fix that. Or perhaps its because I simply want to extend the amount of joy I derive from this passion that so totally consumes me. Either way, I can't wait to see (and share) what happens.

I met a devil woman
She took my heart away
She said, I've had it comin' to me
But I wanted it that way
I think that any love is good lovin'
So I took what I could get, mmmmh
Oooh, oooh she looked at me with big brown eyes
And said,
You ain't seen nothin' yet
B-b-b-baby, you just ain't seen n-n-nothin' yet

Among Us: +Jessica Lark 

The notion of "fallen angels" has long been popular and leaves us wondering what they did to deserve such a fate. But in this particular case, the angel has not fallen from grace but is merely resting; gathering strength after a lengthy (and noble) ordeal. 
   Some of you may know Jessica Lark for her boudoir photography which is delightful, empowering and beautiful. Others may know her for her Master role in the Arcanum where she guides, teaches and mentors with with a keen eye and gentle manner. I also know her as the wife of a serviceman who only recently returned from a series of deployments; an ordeal filled with challenges and hurdles especially given that she is also a mom of two young children.

Go see for yourself.

PS. A heartfelt thank you to Jessica's husband, Michael for all you have done for our country.

Among Us; Heading Uptown

Processed in LR 5 and Tonality Pro from +Macphun Software 

The backstory: It started with a black and white photo of a homeless man sleeping on a bench. I doodled a pair of angel wings on top of the image in Photoshop while thinking about this overlooked person and wondering if he would be more "seen" if he were perceived as being heaven sent.  Would the myriad of passers by notice more of an angel were among us? I titled the piece "fallen" and was taken aback by the comments as I shared it across my social networks. 
  The concept of angels has always intrigued me; even more so as I envisioned them walking among us. Does heaven truly exist as (hopefully) our ultimate destination or do we make our own heaven here on earth? And if so, are we working hard enough to make this happen?

  The concept of angels has always intrigued me; even more so as I envisioned them walking among us. Does heaven truly exist as (hopefully) our ultimate destination or do we make our own heaven here on earth? And if so, are we working hard enough to make this happen? 
This line of thinking has now led to an ongoing project where I ask a random person to put on a pair of large, weighty angel wings and pose for me in public. I find that the mere act of putting the wings on has a transformative effect as the weight and responsibility takes hold. The other dynamic that I find fascinating is the reaction of the passers by. Some remain oblivious while others undergo a transformation themselves. The best part is when people approach me to take on this most heavenly and exalted of roles. 
  Are there angels among us? My answer is "Absolutely." I have seen them firsthand.

Thinking about Leftovers.
While many of us found our way to our kitchens at 1am for late night turkey and stuffing sandwiches or one last piece of pie, or woke up to a day after breakfast of stuffing with a scoop of sweet potatoes and dollop of cranberry sauce, some of us (too many of us) woke up to nothing even remotely resembling leftovers.
Which got me thinking about leftovers...
all the leftover space in our cities that could be repurposed, all the leftover food that restaurants too often throw out rather than donate, all the leftover clothes in our closets that might serve a second life warming someone in dire need.
What if all the leftovers in our society could be diverted to the "leftovers" in our society? 
Maybe we all need to shift a little (lot) more focus over to those left by our society.

I'm not trying to make Black Friday any blacker by diverting focus from madly shopping for loved ones, but perhaps if we all bought an extra pair of socks or gloves, food or blankets and found a local shelter...our circle of loved ones would grow and Black Friday might glow a little warmer and brighter.

Don't spare change. Make change.

Isabella was having an awful nightmare. She heard her dear Arden screaming a horrible tortured scream that ended in an even more terrible silence. She jumped off the couch where she had fallen asleep and nearly tripped over her exceptionally long, flowing ears as she shook herself awake. Her heart was beating so fast as a wave of total despair washed over her. She fell back down on the couch and began to sob great heaving sobs.
   "Oh baby. The top came off the gravy and spattered me."

   Arden smiled a huge turkey smile, sucked in his magnificently rounded gut and said "Tomorrow I shall begin an epic diet and do yoga. After all, I plan to have lots of Thanksgivings together and this turkey knows happily ever after when he sees it."

Not The End.

On this day of giving thanks, I wish you all a day/a year/a lifetime surrounded by all that you are thankful for.

I wish you all the drive and conviction to add even more things to your list.

And I wish you all the compassion and empathy to help other people add things to their list.

May this day of being grateful, leave you feeling great. And full (of more than yummy food)

Once upon a time, a cute lil bunny with exceptionally long, flowing ears named Isabella fell in love with a giant turkey named Arden. Arden made Isabella laugh and her eyes sparkle but kept telling her to live in the moment, that he was on a course of greatness that would end in a tremendous sacrifice and glory. That nothing could get in his way. 
   Isabella didn't believe him and would wrap her ears around him and tell him what the future would hold for them both. That if Arden would simply give himself over to loving her as much as she loved him, they could simply settle down and live happily ever after. Arden would smile at her and go back to eating his grains. And corn. And acorns, blueberries, hickory nuts, crabapples...mmmmm, crabapples.

Now, Isabella was a bit of a health nut and couldn't stop herself from asking Arden to trot more and eat less, that he was getting bigger and bigger. That she wanted to be able to wrap her ears around him for a very long time and was worried. Arden would trot over and let Bella snuggle against his massive chest. He would shake his snood and flex his tail feathers which made Bella smile and grow dreamy. (When Arden shook his snood, Bella felt it all the way in her tail.)
   But deep down, Arden was torn. For as long as he could remember, he was told by his parents and all his relatives that his destiny, his mission was greater than anything else; even love. But maybe, just maybe, his destiny had changed.
   This went on for some time until this very morning when Bella woke up to find Arden was gone. She wrapped her ears around herself but could not keep the chill away.

Seeking and finding perfection at the parade!

I love parades; the floats, the marching bands (especially the tuba players), the giant balloons filled with helium  and giant dignitaries filled with hot air...the palpable joy and energy that they all can't help but exude. Joy.
So here's a thing I remind myself each time I attend one: don't just shoot the parade. Shoot the things that love the parade as much as you do. More joy.
Stay inspired.

There are moments when she'll walk in to a room, levitate a few inches off the floor, every door in the house will slam shut and it will grow so cold you can see your breath as the pounding in your heart grows deafening.
   And then there are the moments where I see all that she has become and know all that she will accomplish in the world.

Here's what I know: the reward for living through "impossible", is knowing all that is "possible"

I wanted to ask about the writing on his hand and scar on his neck but resisted for some reason...perhaps there is more power in the wondering than the truth.

Among us: Joe McNally
It started with a black and white photo of a homeless man sleeping on a bench. I doodled a pair of angel wings on top of the image in Photoshop while thinking about this overlooked person and wondering if he would be more "seen" if he were perceived as being heaven sent.  Would the myriad of passers by notice more if an "angel" were among us? I titled the piece "fallen" and was taken aback by the comments as I shared it across my social networks.
   The concept of angels has always intrigued me; even more so as I envisioned them walking among us. Does heaven truly exist as (hopefully) our ultimate destination or do we make our own heaven here on earth? And if so, are we working hard enough to make this happen?
This line of thinking has now led to an ongoing project where I ask a random person (or in this case, a world renowned and respected icon and hero of mine) to put on a pair of large, weighty angel wings and pose for me in public. I find that the mere act of putting the wings on has a transformative effect as the weight and responsibility takes hold. The other dynamic that I find fascinating is the reaction of the passers by. Some remain oblivious while others undergo a transformation themselves. The best part is when people (cautiously or brazenly) approach me to take on this most heavenly and exalted of roles.
   Are there angels among us? My answer is "Absolutely." I have seen them firsthand.

Thank you, +Joe McNally

Another day, another philosopher king waxing poetic about Ho Chi Minh, Rauschenberg, Kerouac, peacetime, wartime, things loved and lost and lost as cappuccinos grew cold and hearts grew warm

Yeah...so I literally just woke up. Slept the whole day except for a short call this morning. This sucks.

I have some sort of flu (my government assures me it's not Ebola) and have been dealing with non-stop shivering despite being doused in sweat. I decided to pull out my laptop and do some post processing if only to distract myself from the oncoming waves of nausea. This fine fellow was processed in Lightroom and then taken over to Photoshop for a little playing in AnalogEfexPro2 from the #nikcollectionbygoogle  as well as the addition of a few of my own textures for good measure. 
Is there a right or wrong way to do this sort of processing? Absolutely not. Only that which results in a smile when you are done (or additional hallucinations and soft mewling sounds.)

Stay inspired. (And stay hydrated)
