Andreas Levi59,964Some of my awesome inspirators, supporters and friendsHere are some of fantastic peoples which I met on G+ and in real life, for instance on some photo walks and photo tours.You can find in this circle not only great photographers, of which I get a lot of ideas for my work, you find here many interesting nice guys (and ladies) with different interest, all very active, and - for me the most important part - all very kind peoples. With this circle I like to say a big thank you. Thanks for all your inspirations and for your kind comments, feedbacks, conversations, critiques and much more.A little note: I'm not in this circle, but if you get a notification, then you are inside^^ If you like, feel free to share this circle. Have a great day! #thankyou  2015-01-28 15:25:424700519

Gailen Mapes74,733Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-02 11:22:54129011

Everybody from the Essentials circle is also in here, plus everyone I noticed in other circles, who plussed or commented on my posts or who I learned to know through other people. If you're not in there, either I haven't noticed you yet or you don't fulfil my one requirement: you have to post your own work. There are only original photography content creators in here!2014-12-30 16:41:23500000

Tesla v. Lexus

So... there was a Lexus SUV at the McDonald's drive-thru when I shot this photo. Can't have that!! Thank goodness I haz Photoshop skillz!! :D Gone Lexus!

Hmmm... wonder if I can barter for a +Tesla Motors Model S with this series of Charging Station photos I got. Probably not.... but I can dream. Right??? This station actually isn't operational yet. There were workers still installing it.

Now I have the Tesla fever again! Back to work for me!

How to Lose 10 Years

It's so much faster and easier to lose 10 years than it is to lose 10 pounds! Just use frequency separation in Photoshop!

Ghost BTS

I had one request for a BTS on the ghost shot, so here 'tis. It actually isn't one of my favorites because I had some light issues because of a silly oversight and laziness.

1) I shot myself in my bed.
2) I shot myself lying on my piano bench, which is a duet bench. I had my head lying off the end so my hair would hang down. OMG, that was a little rough on the neck and made for a strained look. If I redo it – which I want to do – I’ll have to figure out how to handle this. Before setup, I measured everything: distance from camera to me; distance from camera to each lamp; distance from me to each lamp. Then I moved the lights so that everything was exactly the same.

3) I completely forgot about the fabric of the bathrobe! Gah! Rather than doing a reset, I decided to shoot it by itself. I was exasperated at this point and didn’t want to set everything up again. It would have been better if I had. I never could get the light just right. I draped it over a clothes rod in a closet.
4) I masked me out on the piano bench. Hair is very difficult and I need some guidance on that. I masked out the bathrobe, pulled out the wrinkled in Photoshop, then layered it on top of me.
5) I added my completely clothed ghost into the bed shot and set the opacity to 50%.
6) I converted the entire photo to B&W.___

Thanks to +Chrysta Rae for all her work in this and past events. Thanks also to the judges!! That's a HUGE job and I know it must be tough choosing from so many AMAZING photos!

Happy Shadows

Remember, without light, there can be no shadows. Thank you +Glen Schlueter for the surprise bookmark in the mail!! It prompted me to pull a real, paper book off the shelves, something I haven't done in a long time!! I started reading A Beautiful Mind the day I got the book market from Berlin in the mail. That isn't where I found this quote though. Plenty of people will know where I got it!

Autumn Colors

This was my photo for Autumn Colors in this Scavenger Hunt round. I did several shots, trying all sorts of crazy things. For this shot, I laid some silk floral leaves on a black muslin background. I did a 15-second exposure, zooming in and out. My son was behind the background. At about 12 seconds in, he kicked the background so the leaves flew out toward the camera.

This is a special program to help you improve your photographic composition skills through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. The primary goal of this workshop is to help you learn to see and capture better compositions. I will be taking on a handful of people for a six-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I have been a photographer for over thirty years and have worked professionally for much of that time. I am currently an Apprentice in the Arcanum under the tutelage of +Robin Griggs Wood. I work in many genres, though my current bent is primarily landscapes and macro.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not about basic camera operation or technical aspects of photography. You will be learning the ART of photographic composition and how to make your photographs more appealing. We will explore ways to draw your audience in and hold attention.

This will be an intensive Mentorship. I will ask that you give your all, as will I. Your reward will be commensurate with your investment of time and effort. I expect you to be shooting a LOT because the more you practice, the better ingrained these concepts will become – and the better photographer you will be. There will be weekly assignments based on a theme/concept. I will ask that you shoot ten photographs based on the theme, but you will only be required to post two or three of those. The remaining photos will be on the honor system and for your benefit because, again, how much time and effort you invest determines how much improvement you will see.

Selections will begin January 19 for the mentorship beginning January 28 – I chose a Wednesday to give us a chance to settle in, introduce ourselves and have a weekend to get out shooting, for those who may have regular Monday to Friday jobs.

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.)
• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You have no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop.
• You are willing to shoot and process 10+ photographs per week (only three will be shared in the community, but they will be the “best of” the ten or more that you shoot).

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here:  https://plus.google.com/108127039931400009413/posts/2qJuFWSuAZm
(your application will not be seen at any reshares) and answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation
8) How often you currently shoot

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer
2) Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop CC
3) Trees, landscapes, waterfalls
4) To sell prints of my work
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but I will make the time for this 
8) Twice a week

I will read all responses. However, I will not be able to respond individually to each of you. 

The +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers is run by program directors +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford and +Alex Lapidus

Great idea +Tamara Pruessner!! I really hope this works to get our streams back to seeing the people we want to see most! Thanks for taking the initiative! YOU ROCK!

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.

This really was a walk in the park, albeit a very brisk one! Schneider Skate Park, Durango, CO. This is the Animas River. It was about 15°F when we were out there and snowing. We had a snowball fight too! :-)

Here's the first medium format out of me in a few years.... just a silly quick shot to make sure my firewire (yes, I have to use firewire with this thing) and software are working.

New Beginnings

For the #BWProject26  we are tasked with photographing a goal that represents a new beginning for our photography for 2015. I had already decided that I want to return to my roots which is something of a new beginning since I haven't done it in a long time. I packed this baby up a few years ago and haven't touched it since. I've already taken a shot or two (but haven't yet processed).  It's something of a beast to carry in the field, so this will be my "home studio" camera: Mamiya 645AFD with ancient digital back and several film backs. I'll mostly be shooting digital.

Hands of Time
And Happy 2015!!

If you haven't already done so, there is no time like now to solidify your goals for 2015! Do you know where you want to be a year from now? I do. Do you know how to get there? That part is a little less clear, but I plan to find out.

(This is SOOC, btw.)

Tiers of Light

I enjoyed getting out on the #LasVegas  Strip last night with +Alex Lapidus, +Linda Villers +John Getchel Carlos and Ginger (who we're all trying to talk into joining Google+). This was taken in front of the Venetian before walking around some other places. Most of our photo adventure was indoors, as it's pretty cold here now.

It was great fun seeing you!!

Run!!

I hope no one has been swallowed by the holiday mall goblin! I hope you're all home by now, enjoying your families for the remainder of the holidays!

This ominous looking thing looks like it could swallow shoppers, especially when seen in the reflecting pool. That's exactly what holiday shopping does to some. This is at the newest Las Vegas mall, Downtown Summerlin.

We opted to leave tripods behind, so +John Getchel hunched down and "posed" as a tripod for me. I wish I had a BTS for this! 8 seconds, basically handheld, steadied on his back. LOL

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or whatever holiday you celebrate if you do ... and if you don't, Happy Wednesday!!

Eye to the Sky

When I looked straight up from my seat at The Nutcracker ballet last night at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts, this is what I saw. Of course, I didn't have my real camera so I took a cell phone shot. Such an amazing place ... an amazing performance by the Nevada Ballet Theatre ... amazing music by the Las Vegas Philharmonic ... and wonderful company!!! 

I really want to photograph that place! It's gorgeous!

Thank you for a fantastic evening, +John Getchel!

Lightning

The first photo I've processed on my new lightning-speed computer happens to be the F-35A Lightning that I happened to catch during pre-flight in the hangar at Nellis AFB. This was actually the first time I'd seen this bird. Rather exciting, I must say. I have no idea why they had the stage there... maybe change of command or something.

Photo Slideshow

I wasn't aware that posting a video to YouTube would automatically post publicly on Google+. Live and learn. :-)

My oldest son arrived home two weeks ago today after nearly a year away serving in FEMACorps for his second term, so he's basically been gone for two years. In other words, he hasn't touched a piano in over two years - until two weeks ago. Prior to that, he rarely (almost never) played because he had a very bad experience in college. It is literally music to my ears to hear him not just willingly but gladly playing again.

So I asked him to record an audio track last night of a short piece for me to make a video of some of my photos. My plan had been to share it publicly with an explanation. I had comments on it before I realized it was shared.

Salton Sea

I saw a couple of beautiful photos from the Salton Sea yesterday, and they reminded me that my photos from there are probably the worst case of haze I've ever shot! I recently downloaded a trial version of +DxO Labs which I've wanted to try since I first saw a demonstration about three years ago.

The first photo in the album is processed exclusively in DxO with haze removal - which requires noise reduction - and some other very minor adjustments. It's a single file. I was not bracketing when I shot this. (I did some spot removal in LR; nothing else.) The second shot is the absolute best I could get in Lightroom.

Since I downloaded the trial, I have processed EVERY photo in DxO. I'm hooked. I still use LR and PS, but I start with DxO. It's on my wish list for Christmas. :-)

Light Your World

The Arcanum (http://thearcanum.com/) has definitely put a new light on my world! My Master is +Robin Griggs Wood - she is so incredible, and I'm very blessed that she found my application before anyone else did!! :D

This past week has been a productive one photographically, although I can only share a little of it with the Arcanum because a lot of what I did was for the +Chrysta Rae Scavenger Hunt. I did take the trip to Tehachapi and got some great shots of the wind turbines and the Tesla charging station, which gave me a chance to practice some ridiculous editing – removing the wheel barrow, rebuilding the car that was blocked by the wheel barrow, removing a Lexus from the McDonald’s drive-thru in the shot I shared publicly.

Light Your World

The Arcanum (http://thearcanum.com/) has definitely put a new light on my world! My Master is +Robin Griggs Wood - she is so incredible, and I'm very blessed that she found my application before anyone else did!! :D

This past week has been a productive one photographically, although I can only share a little of it with the Arcanum because a lot of what I did was for the +Chrysta Rae Scavenger Hunt. I did take the trip to Tehachapi and got some great shots of the wind turbines and the Tesla charging station, which gave me a chance to practice some ridiculous editing – removing the wheel barrow, rebuilding the car that was blocked by the wheel barrow, removing a Lexus from the McDonald’s drive-thru in the shot I shared publicly.

What really struck me most about this past week, however, was the enormous spike in my creativity! I attribute that entirely to my work in the Arcanum – not because I’m in the Arcanum, per se, but because I’m doing different things, practicing what I already knew and learning new things. If you have heard Robin talk about “The Myth of Talent,” it is absolutely true! When I filled out my Arcanum application, I said that I wanted to find my muse again, stop begging her to come out and play, and instead have her come and find me. In the last week, I feel like beating her off with a stick… and I’ll tell you why.

You may already be familiar with this, so forgive me if I’m repeating what you already know. Have you ever had a light bulb go off just as you’re drifting off to sleep? What about when you’re in the shower? There’s actually a reason for this, and it has to do with brain waves. (I did a lot of brain study many years ago. If you don’t know who Jill Bolte Taylor is, I highly recommend Jill Bolte Taylor: STROKE of insight: TED TALKS: documentary,lecture,talk:. Fascinating!!) 

People have circadian rhythms, and they differ from one person to another. Some of us are morning people; others are night owls. I usually wake up before my alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. I do my best work before lunchtime. I am referring to only the type of work that needs the proverbial (and misleading) left brain – or analytical functions. It is well established – there are studies to demonstrate this – that people do their best creative work when they are in their “off” rhythms.

While all brain waves are active practically all the time, there is a variance. Certain types of brain waves are more active depending on the type of activity we are doing. During sleep, the most active waves are delta waves (below 4hz). The brain waves that are used for higher thinking are gamma waves (39-100hz). When we are relaxed, alpha waves (8-13hz) are the most pronounced. It is during this time when scientists believe the human mind is at its peak of creativity.

Have you ever run into someone you haven’t seen in many years, and you can’t remember their name? It hits you just as you’re drifting off to sleep! At this point, theta waves (4-7hz) are most active. You are in a state of deep relaxation, nearly hypnotic. You basically have no control over your mind, and this is why your brain is able to make recollections that you aren’t able to make during full consciousness.

You may also be able to come up with some of your best ideas during this time! This is when my muse visits me lately, tapping me on the shoulder: “Hey, Pam, wake up! I have a great idea!” Get out of here, you pest! It’s time to sleep! “You’re gonna love this one!” Then I’m wide awake, figuring out the details of how to shoot this great shot! I know my alarm will go off in six hours, but my brain won’t shut down now. Just wait until you see these shots… after the Scavenger Hunt!

I really do owe it to this Arcanum experience, because it has gotten me doing things I wouldn’t be doing otherwise: composites, shooting more, trying new things, having more confidence! It really isn’t about being “born with talent” – it’s about developing skills you already have, learning new ones, and practice, practice, practice!! ___

Yesterday, I added some things to my booksmarks on my desktop. When I went to my laptop to do some work last night, that's when I realized I wasn't signed into Chrome on my desktop. I signed in, the "Read more" issue returned. I went to settings, "Disconnect your Google account" from Chrome, restarted Chrome.... still no "Read more." Restarted my computer, still no "Read more."

I created a new Chrome profile. That fixed it…. again! I moved my bookmarks. Still fixed. I signed into Chrome. “Read more” once again disappeared!!

Following are the extensions I have installed: Adblock Plus; goo.gl URL shortener; Hover Zoom; Nonplus; SEO for Chrome; TinEye Reverse Image Search; Replies and More (not enabled). Extensions that seem to have been automatically installed with the latest version of Chrome are: Evernote Web Clipper; Google Docs; Google Sheets; Google Slides. 

I cannot use Chrome like this!! AND I need to be signed in for Chrome to work as it is intended – so that it works on all my devices and my bookmarks, etc., are available across devices.___

Does anyone know how to redeem the +KelbyOne subscriptions for the #WWPW2014   #photowalk  leaders? There's a video I really want to watch from #PSW2014  for a photo shoot I'm doing Monday morning.

Here's the info I have: "As a bonus, all approved walk leaders will get a free 1-year subscription to KelbyOne, which features more than 10,000 educational videos to improve your photography (regularly priced at US$250/year." 

I assumed that our KelbyOne sign-in would automatically activate our subscription. No go.

+Scott Kelby Anyone?

So... there was a Lexus SUV at the McDonald's drive-thru when I shot this photo. Can't have that!! Thank goodness I haz Photoshop skillz!! :D Gone Lexus!

Hmmm... wonder if I can barter for a +Tesla Motors Model S with this series of Charging Station photos I got. Probably not.... but I can dream. Right??? This station actually isn't operational yet. There were workers still installing it.

Now I have the Tesla fever again! Back to work for me!

Day 4

Yes, I still have many photos of the Keep Memory Alive Frank Gehry building that I haven't shared. I always prefer B&W, so I thought I'd add this one to the #splittonefivedaychallenge  that +Alan Shapiro started and +Robin Griggs Wood invited me to participate. Since +Eleanor Preger supports the efforts of the Lou Ruvo Center, what an appropriate way to invite her to this challenge! Eleanor, what say you?

Alan started this endeavor, saying: "Now that the black and white challenge has circled the globe a few hundred times, I want to start something new that takes monochrome processing to the next level. Let's all play with split toning for a while and share amongst our friends."

Alan started this endeavor, saying: "Now that the black and white challenge has circled the globe a few hundred times, I want to start something new that takes monochrome processing to the next level. Let's all play with split toning for a while and share amongst our friends."___

Day 3

#splittonefivedaychallenge  
What did I say yesterday about portraits? Okay, this isn't a portrait. This was supposed to be street shooting on Fremont Street in Las Vegas, but there were so many people on Halloween that I couldn't use a long lens.... and every time I tried to shoot someone, they'd stop and pose for me!! Sheesh! This couple was so cute! I actually chatted with them for a bit before taking a shot. I asked if he was Bugsy. No, just a 1920s couple. 

+Robin Griggs Wood tagged me into +Alan Shapiro's challenge, where he said: "Now that the black and white challenge has circled the globe a few hundred times, I want to start something new that takes monochrome processing to the next level. Let's all play with split toning for a while and share amongst our friends." Now I'm challenging +Andreas Levi to join the fun.

Yes, remember to be grateful in the calm! Thank you for that reminder, +Vincent Dale​.

It is worth every effort to be persistent toward a worthwhile goal.  Tears will be shed,  hearts broken, or maybe you are even fighting discouragements. Indeed, you may find it hard not to give up at times. Remember the sea of life is not always calm, neither is it always rough. Let us press hard and pray fervently  in the season of calm so we can be encouraged when the waves are against us.    

Also happy birthday to my frind +Richard Bates

Follow Me

I rarely post portraits I've done. This was taken at a workshop I attended a few years ago. The models were all volunteers. This couple was totally bored with stiff poses, so I stepped up and did this pose. The guy said, "Finally, a fun photographer!" Then everyone in the (rather large) group wanted to start shooting, having fun and trying creative poses of their own!

This is my second installment for the #splittonefivedaychallenge  that +Alan Shapiro instigated a few days ago. I'd like to ask +Mary Clark to join us. +Robin Griggs Wood invited me to the fun (thanks, Robin). Just follow Alan's instructions: Now that the black and white challenge has circled the globe a few hundred times, I want to start something new that takes monochrome processing to the next level.

Just a Little Flaky Nutty

They might be flaking around the edges a bit, but they're still holding tight.

For my first installment of +Alan Shapiro's 5-Day Split Tone Challenge that +Robin Griggs Wood tagged me into yesterday, I had to go into Photoshop - versus using the Lightroom split toning - because I just couldn't get where I wanted with this image. I've never shared this image because, frankly, I didn't like it. When looking for something for this challenge, Aha!, I bet that will work well.

Hmm... who can I get to come out and play the #splittonefivedaychallenge ? +John Getchel
