Gailen Mapes66,670Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 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 +2014-08-09 11:07:541394111CC G+

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.

So, I never would have thought that weaving ribbon between flowers could make them pop like that.  Floral Designers are such cool artists.

r :: rice

eh.  i'm catchin' up.  
i've been a bit sidetracked lately.  i have a new job that i really like, but requires thought and creativity.  which is perfect.  however--my work hours consist of whenever the house is quiet.  
(which is like two hours a day.  total.)  
((well, if you count late at night--that's something too.  but, i've usually had a glass of wine by then and, well, all serious thought leaves my brain.))
(((that's assuming that i have serious thoughts in the first place.)))

anyway...my quiet time lately has been dedicated to learning and working on work--instead of playing with my food.

I'm pretty sure I've spammed the heck out of everyone in my Minneapolis groups but...in case it was missed, or you're planning to be in town that weekend and want to join up with us...here's your info...

+Scott Kelby's, 7th annual, Worldwide Photo Walk, Minnehaha Falls Edition will be hosted, once again, by ME.   It's my third year out there and I can't wait--maybe it won't rain this year?  (I shouldn't say that...it'll end up snowing.)

Does your favorite color change over time?  (Wait..do other adults have favorite colors?)

Mine was red for years...lately, orange is really lookin' nice to me though.  So is brown.  And green...like, an avocado green.  What about you?

Also...I think it's time to do some repainting around my house now that I think of it :)

My current favorite thing? My 'camera bag' from one of my best friends, Lindsey! 

Each week I switch from my #Canon bag, to my +Think Tank Photo bag, to a purse, to a diaper bag, back to my Think Tank bag and so on. Sometimes, I even have to make the switch a couple times a day. It's insane. Before this awesome little bag--I'd forget my #BabyLips, or the coupon I really needed, my cell phone, or my sunglasses--I even forgot my wallet in the wrong bag...twice, actually. 

This little bag was a game changer and has made my life a ton simpler. Now, it all just stays in there and I make sure I, simply, have THIS bag before leaving the house. Thanks Lindsey for something so little--that made such a big difference to me and my piece of mind. (Especially when everything else is so chaotic!)

This look is one I see a lot this time of year.

I know that going back to school is really difficult...but, often times, it's the only cure for this perma-bored expression.  Isn't it funny--all that excitement that happens in May and June and then, by August, it's just gone.  Summer is like a beach ball.. just kinda deflating, slowly, as time goes on.

A little blue...a little orange...a lotta green.

That's really all I have to say about this photo.  I'm currently stalled out on a blog post...so, I'm hoping that when I go back to writing, I'll suddenly have words to say.  OR...if nothing else, I'll have a fresh mind after flipping though all the gorgeous #floralfriday  posts today :)

Every night this little guy is on one window, or another.  
I actually spend time looking for him each night.  
And, when he's not around...I worry a little.

Now that I say that out loud...I feel it may be a bit odd...

I was out shooting last night and I came across this scene and I'm not even gonna lie...I melted.  Like a total chick.  My heart smiled.  

I didn't know who they were...I assumed there was a new spark being lit, or maybe old flames being rekindled...girls don't get that look in their eye unless there's passion somewhere. 

Anyway...watching them dance, while everyone else sat, and chatted, and ate in the heat and humidity of that early August evening was a beautiful thing.

One of the last photos, from one of my last 'formal' shoots.  (I say formal like there's such thing when photographing a four year-old.  Heh.)

I'm heading in so many, photo-related, directions lately--my mind is constantly going all over the place.  It's a good feeling since I know the direction I'm going in is the right one.

It's a funny thing that happens when that feeling hits.  First of all, I know everything that I want to work out, will work out.  Secondly, I know that I won't stop until I get to where I want to be--which is no place short of the top.  Until both of those things happen...there's so much work to do and it all feels like a race--like, now is my time to do what I want, and I don't have time to mess around or the universe will pass me up.  If that makes any sense.

It's a funny thing that happens when that feeling hits.  First of all, I know everything that I want to work out, will work out.  Secondly, I know that I won't stop until I get to where I want to be--which is no place short of the top.  Until both of those things happen...there's so much work to do and it all feels like a race--like, now is my time to do what I want, and I don't have time to mess around or the universe will pass me up.  If that makes any sense.

These were recently created for a wedding--inspired by peacock feathers.  They were so, incredibly, stunning.  (Most of photographing them was, simply, so I could gawk at 'em :) )

Ya know what one of my favorite things I see when I'm at work?  When a kid comes in to buy some candy and has to use his tiptoes in order to see over the counter :)

Well...that and all the candy.  I really do love to see all the candy too.

I can't even tell you the amount of joy I get while photographing kids...especially in all their messy glory :)  The other day, I had the pleasure of working with two, incredibly busy, and highly energetic little guys.   It was like running a super fast sprint for me.  I've learned that a #Redbull, before a shoot, really does help give me the wings I need to keep up :)

My head is still in weekend mode...full of fireworks, friends, bonfires and s'mores, family, swimming, car trips, licorice, coffee and water balloon fights.

(Coffee and licorice did carry over to today, however...)

My life, with my camera, consists of flowers, candy and kids nowadays.

(Life without my camera kinda consists of those things.  I mean, I have lots of random kids around at all times, I sneak candy from those random kids and I have, recently, taken up flower pressing for some, yet undetermined, future project.)

I am starting to embrace my role as a Floral Photographer and I'm beginning to fall into it--as well as expand on it.  I never knew this was something I would do.  Taking photos of flowers is one thing; creating photos of flowers is much more like a client shoot...lighting, feel, posing and mood really come into play.  I spend a great deal of time moving things, creating spaces and making things feel right--instead of finding a flower where it's at and simply shooting it.

The trick for me has, in a way, been embracing it and getting over knowing that I'm posting, yet another, flower shot...but, that's a huge chunk of what I do lately and the direction that I seem to be going more and more.  Viewing myself as marketable has always been difficult (I'm a person, not a corporation), but as I venture this way more, and more opportunity arises, I find that viewing myself as 'marketable' is helping propel me, confidently, in the right direction.  

Anyway...I GUESS...what I'm trying to say is, get ready for flower photos and hash tags and, if you have ANY problem with it...just un-circle me.  (I say that because I had someone delete me, and then complain to me, that I posted too much flowery stuff and then tell me how much she hates flowers.  That still annoys me.  We had been friends before that.  I broke her with my flowers.)

Yesterday, at work, I found a lily the size of my head and a rose that matched my hair :)  Right after this, I turned that arrangement into the rock star it was, as I snapped, and snapped, away.  

Happy #Friday !

I can finally post a #caturday  photo :)  

Life has me living, part-time, with a few cats lately--so, other than photographing them, what else is there to do with 'em?  (Well...other than chase them off the counters, yell at them when they steal a pork chop, lock them on the porch all night so they don't wake up the baby that you just spent an hour trying to get to sleep, pet them to get them to stop rubbing their butt in your face and wake up to them sleeping on your clean clothes, that is...)

Well, it's been just under a week since +Scott Jarvie rolled into MN for his Faith in America Project.  You can see what this state does to people...guns and flannel--it happens quick up in these here parts.  (Oh...I made sure he got some Wild Rice Hot Dish while he was here, too.)

My kid dubbed him as 'The Guy that Lives in our Driveway'.  It'll be a bit different without the Airstream out there; I can't wait to keep watching where his travels take him, though :)

Did you guys know the average prom is costing about 1,000 bucks this year!?  Seriously!  AND...that's down 14% from last year!  Gah.  Go feed a small county, teens...

All that disposable income...I have no idea what that's like.  Well, I guess all my income gets disposed of--just in the form of bill payment.  Which is so NOT fun.
  
Anyway...this was my office set up last night.  I was shootin' corsages--hence, the prom rant above.  The above photo is behind the scenes and the bottom is the finished product :)

it's all about  b a l a n c e ...or, so i've been told.

it's funny the things that make us feel 'balanced' when we're searching.  

for me to quickly find a center...i need black coffee, and some skate park, punk music, and a list.  it's the only way i can speed my body up to where my brain already is--all while keeping organized.  i also need to see results of things quickly to keep motivated.  (even if it's just in the form of a website update taking effect...)

cheers to balance--in however you find it.

Anyway...as my business grows and my 5-year, business plan becomes a reality--I'll be using this channel for all things businessy.   (Client videos, behind the scenes stuff and anything else I feel like subjecting you to :) )

SO...without further ado, (aka: more rambling on my end)--here's my first video.

Almost 20 years ago I thought I'd be the one in the photos with him someday.  After so many ups and downs, and an amazing daughter of our own--here I am, on the other side of the camera, photographing him and his new family.

Life is such an incredible thing.  I can't imagine life any different for either of us now.  Things feel right, and are right, and I am proud to be the one there, capturing these moments for them all to look back on and smile at someday.  Maybe even in another 20 years :)

back when she was little i said...

as they get older...all i can do is watch.  and praise.  and try to correct.  and force more thought.  and encourage more empathy to find understanding.  as i get older, i find constant reminders, through them, to do the same...if i expect growth from them, i am no one to stop, myself.

all right pre-teen years...here we go.

Anyway, turns out, most of the flowers are real.  That mom though...well she's real in the physical sense...that's about it.

Well, my camera and I have been hired to do 'real' work.  (I say real, only in the sense, that it's someone else paying us and giving us direction.)  I take photos, I blog, I take care of social media needs--I'm always writing, always looking at color/wedding/prom/floral/seasonal trends and I completely rely on creativity to keep me inspired enough to do all of the above.

I'm not one to share tons of 'work' photos...BUT, I feel out of touch here and I don't want you guys to think I'm not doing anything.  (Which sometimes IS the case...not this time though.)  PLUS, almost ALL of my photos involve candy and/or flowers...and who doesn't like candy and flowers!?

i don't even know what day i should be on anymore...but, i'll get there.  also...instagram will be updated eventually.  (the camera on my  phone just quit working the other day.  ironically, the last photo i took, before it broke, was a mirror selfie-- i'm pretty sure even my phone was like-- 'nuh, uh bitch'.  anyway...i have photos on my kid's ipod, my husbands phone and sitting somewhere on my computer.  i'll organize them...eventually :) )

eh.  i'm catchin' up.  
i've been a bit sidetracked lately.  i have a new job that i really like, but requires thought and creativity.  which is perfect.  however--my work hours consist of whenever the house is quiet.  
(which is like two hours a day.  total.)  
((well, if you count late at night--that's something too.  but, i've usually had a glass of wine by then and, well, all serious thought leaves my brain.))
(((that's assuming that i have serious thoughts in the first place.)))

anyway...my quiet time lately has been dedicated to learning and working on work--instead of playing with my food.
