Gailen Mapes0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  J-K - 17 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-04-17 10:53:121028410CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+

Sumit Sen57,209A Circle ShareCircle sharing by individuals seems to passé these days, and most shares are curated circles put together on some general basis by a few. That suits me fine because I am not fashionable and pretty faded! :)This circle is not one which contains all my best friends here or all the folks whose photography I really admire. It contains members who are my engagement set. People who follow my posts and people whose posts appear on my stream on a regular basis. Part of the selection has to do with Gplus's stream feed algorithm and part of it has to do with time zones. But these 200 are part of my life on GPlus now and I meet them virtually almost everyday.I am sharing this list mainly for the benefit of my new followers who are looking for worthwhile additions to their circles. I expect that they will not be disappointed by the selection. Finally, comments are closed. You can of course share and plus if you want to :)2013-03-23 15:19:4120001580CC G+

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:1450013641100CC G+

They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to December 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 1st.)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 #circleoftheday2012-12-22 12:46:4824913210CC G+

Viva Cuba

Artist José Fuster (known as the Picasso of the Caribbean) has covered his town of Jaimanitas with Gaudi-inspired ceramics. It's colorful, crazy and fun. This is the building next door, "decorated" by Fuster and shot from the roof of his studio.

Something for Everyone

All those things you hear about San Francisco are true. I was born here and have lived here most of my life. Okay, so Easter Sunday is a little unusual, but not really all that much. Yesterday in Golden Gate Park we celebrated the combination of Easter and 420. A new event this year was the Foxy Mary contest. Here's contestant "Mary Jane" -- she was the runner up -- confessing to a nun, surrounded by other interesting characters.

Nikon D4s: Initial ISO Tests

I've been shooting with the amazing Nikon D4s for an upcoming episode of #AllAboutTheGear with +Frederick Van Johnson. I'll have more rigorous and complete tests soon, but take a look at this one. Click on the image to see it larger. I've posted this as a full-res JPEG. What you're looking at is a crop of approximately 1/6 of each image (2.7MP out of 16MP full frame). I don't know if Google will reproduce the full 97MP combined image. Even if they do, you'll need a roughly 200" (diagonal) monitor to view this entire image 1:1.

The lack of noise at ISO 25,600 is remarkable. This is the highest "normal" ISO for this camera. But the D4s can go all the way to ISO 409,600 or 4EV more if you're willing to live with more noise. I'll show that in future posts. #NikonD4s

What’s new in the entry-level DSLR market? The D3300 is Nikon’s latest candidate in this niche. But the real question for most buyers isn’t whether it’s the best DSLR at this level, but whether one might be better off with a comparable mirrorless camera.

Honey Mahogany

Another terrific performer this afternoon in Golden Gate Park. I caught her in the makeup tent just before she went on stage and killed a performance of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." +Honey Mahogany 

From her website, "Voted Best Drag Queen 2011 by SF Weekly's Readers' Poll and the reigning Miss Blow Up USA, Honey Mahogany is an international drag performer and budding recording artist. Honey was selected for the 2011 Hot Pink List of "queers to watch" by the SanFrancisco Bay Guardian and was the cover girl for the Guardian's 2011 Queer Issue." (http://www.itshoney.com/)

Madeline in Her Easter Hat

+Scott Loftesness and I were having lunch yesterday at Filoli, when I noticed the little girl in her cute hat and gorgeous light. I went back and forth: Should I bother her mother and grandmother and ask if I could take her picture or not. Yes, no. Yes, no. Finally, I just had to, even though I was carrying a massive and potentially frightening Nikon D4s and a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for an upcoming #AllAboutTheGear review. I learned her name was Madeline and she was finishing her peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Her mom said she usually didn't like to have her picture taken, so it was surprising she didn't shy away from me. Cute kid.

It's that time of year once again: Time for San Francisco's Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to celebrate Easter. We had a great photowalk for their show two years ago. 

Two important notes: (1) The location this year is at Hellman Hollow in Golden Gate Park, NOT Dolores Park, and (2) from noon on, this is NOT a family event. (There's a safe-for-kids show from 10am-noon.) Don't come unless you're prepare for San Francisco-style partying!

Check out the schedule of events at http://www.thesisters.org/. One advantage of coming early is to catch the Sisters applying their makeup.

Mid-day Color, Trinidad, Cuba

Another image for those who are tired of seeing Cuba in black and white. These are the real colors of this scene at noon in Trinidad. The Photoshop work was to bring the luminosity of the street (in sunlight) closer to that of the shady sidewalk, but the colors are reproduced accurately here.

Aché Son, Rhythm Section (Trinidad, Cuba)

Aché Son was the best of many terrific bands playing in Trinidad two weeks ago. Salsa with a hint of hip-hop. The rhythm section posed for me mid-song.  Trinidad is a great town for music, and the bands are so good that if they were playing in Havana, you'd never get in to see them.

Yes, I did shoot some images for color while in Cuba. :-) You've already seen many shots from this very photogenic, even pastoral tobacco farm. We had to wade through a lot of mud to get there -- too deep for our cars -- but it was well worthwhile.

A Friday in San Francisco

Mid-day, harsh light. But I want to use this image to point out something about the "megapixel wars." To make this photograph I used a lens designed for a "cropped-sensor" camera, Sony's NEX line. But I used it on a camera (a7) with a larger, full-frame sensor. The camera's sensor is normally 24MP, but because this lens can't cover the entire sensor, the camera switched automatically to "crop" mode, giving me a 9MP image. I then manually cropped this image to only 7.5MP in my post processing, and what you see here (if you enlarge the image and go full screen) is only 2MP. Check our how sharp and how much detail there is. The lens itself is not considered to be a particularly sharp one, BTW. I could easily print this as large as 32" wide and it would still look good. My point being: We don't need all these... more »

Top Shelf -- The Good Stuff

Cuban Rum aged 15-20 years is unlike any other rum I've tasted. More like a fine Cognac than what you think of as rum. One shot in a bar costs 17-20 C.U.C. or about US$19-US$22. The 700ml bottle of Havana Club 15 Años here is about US$165. You can't legally bring it into the U.S., but imagine how expensive it would be here if you could. Ah, you lucky Canadians!

I showed this image to one of my students today and the first thing he said was, "Did you add that horse?" :-) 

I've done a lot of dodging, burning and other luminosity tweaking, but no -- I did NOT add the horse! It was the horse on the edge of the lake, however, that caused me to stop and make this picture.

Sarahi Cabrera and Tirso Ramirez, Opera Singers, Havana, Cuba

We had dinner one night on the roof of a paladar -- a small private commercial restaurant. Our hosts had arranged for these two marvelous singers to entertain us with an evening of (mostly) Puccini. Marvelous.

Raul Castro has been steadily increasing opportunities for private enterprise in Cuba. When I was there a year ago, he had recently allowed private restaurants for up to 20 patrons. This year the limit had been increased to 50. Fascinating to see how changes like this affect the country.

BTW, in 8" heels (2" platforms), Sarahi was at least a foot taller than Tirso. She's very tall to begin with. Made for interesting duets!

Perhaps it's indicative of how prevalent music is in Cuba that you can so often see guys carrying large double basses in the streets. On two separate trips to Cuba, I think I've seen this four or five times. Almost enough for an Internet meme.

Colors of Vińales (Cuba)

No, I haven't enhanced these colors. This is really what the town of Vińales looks like. Two years ago the Cuban government allowed the owners of homes in this formerly agricultural town to rent rooms to tourists. The townspeople have worked with local officials not only to make their guest rooms very nice but to adopt paint schemes like these. This view isn't rare in Vińales. I just picked this view to show here. I could fill a small book with images of the colorful homes of this town.

Lola's '56 Chevy Bel Air

So many gorgeous pre-1960 American cars in Cuba, and I was lucky enough to connect with the Nostalgic Car Club while there last week. Lots of rides and photos. This was Lola's car, restored and maintained by her husband.
