Gailen Mapes64,764Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  B - 2 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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 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 Mapes2014-06-02 10:17:20139427CC G+
Wayne Marinovich26,506Wildlife Photographers CircleWell, it has been over a year since I last shared my wildlife photographers circle. I have recently been through it, and dropped some folks who no longer seems to be posting. Whilst going though all the people, I realise just how many friends I have made in this online world. I look forward to meeting more of you in the flesh someday.Please feel free to share this with your followers (that is how this works after all). If you are not on here and are a keen amateur, semi-pro or seasoned pro, let me know and I will add you.  2014-05-23 08:07:52474928CC G+

But if you do share we will be thankful to you!Next share at 500If you like to be in it you can tag us #promotephotography there is no guaranty but it will help us found your work!Share if you like!  READ THIS NOTE BY +Rodney Campbell (well seen, thank you!)Note that I got an error when trying to add the Circle +Promote Photography  - not the usual domain restriction error where it still creates the circle but the one where it says it can't add one or more people and/or pages.Unfortunately it's +Alycia Miller  entry which is causing the error for me (and also for at least one other circle I'm aware of) - when I remove her from the circle before adding it adds fine. +Alycia Miller  is already in multiple of my circles so not a problem for me but others may not be able to add this circle. I can also see her account looks to have been Fubar'd by G+ at the moment (it's empty of posts)2013-09-01 10:58:4040113462113CC G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Chris Mallory16,845G+ Survivor Follow-up: One Week LaterAKA, the circle share that is sure to piss everybody offOne week ago yesterday I thought up the idea of "G+ Survivor" - a "game" in which I put all my followers - all 1350 of them - into one circle, and then removed them one by one based on their content (OP: http://goo.gl/wXEiG). The goal was to help me discover new people I had buried in my circles that posted interesting, engaging content. At first it was easy, but as time went on it got considerably harder to eliminate people. Over the past week I've reviewed the posts of over a thousand people, and have come up with, somehow, the top hundred.Before getting into the circle itself, I must say that I learned more about myself in this process than I did about the people in my stream. I learned just what kind of content I found interesting. People that know me know that I am a lover of insects and insect photos, but I eliminated tons of people that post exclusively insect photos and few remain in this circle. Why? Because a photo alone is not engaging. Tell me something about the subject, propose a question, teach me something, share an opinion, get people thinking - these were the things that engaged me the most. Of the hundred people remaining, less than half of them are photographers.It also needs to be said that just because you are not in this circle it does not mean that I don't find your content interesting. Conversely, just because you are in this circle it doesn't mean that your content is interesting. I'm rather surprised, actually, some of the people that made it into this circle while others did not.Another reason you may not be in this circle is if you had any major period of inactivity over the past week. Every night I removed about 30 people simply from inactivity - it doesn't mean that your content was not interesting, just that I wish that you posted more of it.As an aside - if I were playing along, I would have eliminated myself ages ago. I know how (un)interesting I am ;) So I am (obviously) not in this circle.So, for the circle itself! 54 men and 46 women remain in the game. Photography and science are major themes of the remaining members, though neither of those genres holds a majority and there are a handful of remaining players who are involved in neither. Some of you may have remember two weeks ago I posted a circle containing "40 interesting people" (http://goo.gl/xHLwy) - but interestingly, only 20 of those people still remain in this contest. Additionally, I don't even know most of the people in this circle, and 20 people still in the game don't even have me in their circles. It is VERY possible that the winner of this game will have no idea who I am.So, enjoy. 100 interesting people. The game will keep going until 1 remains. Now's the time to bet on a winner ;)2012-10-02 04:23:391004508CC G+

I guess if you go to Iceland you ought to have an image named "Fire and Ice" in the portfolio.  This is from a particularly memorable night at the lagoon.  What can I say?  There was some nice light that night.  Don't tell +Ron Coscorrosa I posted this, he might have a kanipshin.

Layers of Gold, Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah

I just got back from co-leading a workshop in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks with Arizona Highways legend George Stocking.  We had a great group of enthusiastic folks which made chasing light like this in canyon country all the more rewarding.  Words really can't describe the awe one feels when standing on edge of this canyon.  Hopefully the image relays a bit of its majesty, but it really must be experienced in person.

Looking forward to a  bit of down time (aka catching up on office work) before heading down to SC with my family and then off to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest for another workshop in two weeks.

The Sentinels, Olympic National Park, WA

www.kurtbudliger.com

Picking through some images from my recent travels to the Pacific Northwest and catching up on office work this week.  Here's one from the famed Ruby Beach area.  The key to images like this is being patient and waiting for the right wave action.  I also find that using a cable release rather than your self timer is critical for timing the point of shutter release.  It's virtually impossible to anticipate the waves 2-10 seconds before the decisive moment.  The other key is shooting a lot of frames.   In fact, I often use the continuous shooting mode and shoot right through a wave set, starting with an advancing wave and continuing through it's recession.  In this case I new the receding wave would yield the look I was after and with an outgoing tide it was only the larger waves that pushed water allthe wa... more »

Green Spaghetti, Sol Duc Rainforest, Olympic National Park

Slowly starting to crawl out from my cave after getting really sick upon return from the PNW last week.  We had a great group for the Olympic National Park workshop this year and I was able to get a little personal shooting in after we wrapped things up last weekend.  One of the clients so aptly described the rainforest as Green Spaghetti, hence my title here.

I've got more images to sift through and process but will share more as I progress.  As always thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

Saguaro Glow, Organ Pipe National Monument, Arizona

Here's another shot from my recent travels to the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.  I fell in love with the interplay of backlight and the various cactus species in the Sonoran Desert.  In fact, it quickly became my preferred light for working in this rather chaotic environment.  I know this won't be for everyone due to the lack of dramatic light and sky but it's quickly becoming one of my favorites from the trip as it represents the quieter, more contemplative style of shooting that first got me excited about photography.

26, Sonoran Desert, Arizona

Just returned from a great trip to the Arizona Desert.  Got a little personal shooting in on either side of a workshop I co-lead with fellow Dreamscapes and Arizona Highways legend, George Stocking.  The wildflowers were pretty much nonexistent this spring but we had some good shooting and fantastic workshop clients.  Looking forward to my trip to Moab next week.

The title represents the number of cholla spines I had to  pluck from my calf after shooting this image.  They don't call them jumping cactus for nothing!

Pura Vida, Playa Pelada, Costa Rica

Spent a wonderful week hanging on Pacific side of Costa Rica with my family recently.  This is from one  of the only nights we had any clouds at sunset.  It's a far cry from the below zero temps and blizzard conditions the past 24 hours here in northern Vermont.  Off tomorrow for 10 days in the desert southwest with some personal shooting as well as a workshop I'm co-leading with George Stocking.  We still have some space in next month's Arches & Canyonlands workshop if anyone is interested in joining us in Utah.  Hit the link for details.  

Peace out y'all!

Skogafoss Double Date, Iceland

We are nearing the winter solstice and as is usually the case November, and thus far December have been pretty gloomy here in the northeastern US.  You know it must be pretty dank if you find yourself dreamy of the sunny weather in Iceland…

Here's another from my trip last August, where we did in fact have a couple of sunny hours sprinkled in here and there.  Maybe one day we'll see some sun again.

Cobble, Cobble

Sorry for the poor humor but that's how I roll ;)  While I don't have any images of turkeys in my archive I'm pretty sure I had a turkey sandwich for lunch on the day I shot this image on Hunter's Cove Beach in Acadia NP.  If not, I certainly would have eaten one if I had it with me, I'm usually pretty hungry when shooting sunset.

There's a lot to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day 2013.  I'm truly blessed with great family and friends, good health and and the ability to pursue a life and living behind the lens.  Here's wishing everyone a happy and relaxing Thanksgiving!

Acadia Glow, Acadia National Park, Maine

What can I say, I love that glowing reflected light that bounces back into the scene from a colorful sky.  For whatever reason I seem to experience this phenomenon at least once every time I visit Acadia National Park in the fall.  There tend to be a lot of weather fronts moving through at this time of year and if you can time it right, usually when one is approaching from the west, the sunrises can be spectacular.

Join me and +Joseph Rossbach next October for a fun filled and fantastic workshop in this glorious park.  Registration is now open, hit the link for all the details or to sign up.  http://greenmtnphotoworkshops.com/?workshops=acadia-national-park-photography-workshop-2014

Beach Fang, Jokulsarlon, Iceland

Happy Monday everyone and to all the Veterans in the US, my hat is officially tipped!  

Still finding images from this summer's trip to Iceland to process.  This particular beach, and especially this particular evening was very productive for me.  It was by far the best light we had during the trip and I think I walked away with at least 5 or 6 images I'm really happy with.  As always thanks for taking a peek.

Icy Abyss, Bruarfoss, Iceland

Logging some office hours now that stick season is in full swing here in Vermont.  Of course I still find plenty of distractions from getting any meaningful work accomplished :)  There are still some Iceland images kicking around on the hard drive that have gone unprocessed, wouldn't want them to feel lonely. 

As amazing as this waterfall is, it's so hard to come up with something remotely original.  The scenery around it is a bit lackluster (hard to imagine I know) and unless there is an epic sky happening the wide angle perspectives don't do much for me.  So, I spent sometime wandering around the rim of the chasm working comps and trying not to fall in.

As always thanks for taking a peek.

Forest Kaleidoscope, Groton SF, Vermont

Finally coming up for air after a very busy autumn season here in the northeast.  For as much time as I spent in the field this autumn I have surprisingly few images to show for it.  Here's one from late September here in northern Vermont.  I often prefer the "pre-peak" color look because of the way the vibrant reds contrast with the green.  The red maples around here almost always peak well before the sugar maples and especially the beeches do.  It's unlikely you'll come across scenes with lots of reds and no green.  Once the reds are gone the predominant color scheme shifts more toward a yellow and orange.

Registration is open for next year's Autumn in Vermont Workshop as well as the Acadia National Park Workshop.  I'll be teaming up with friend and colleague +Joseph Rossbach  for both of theseprogram... more »

Fallen, Acadia National Park, Maine

Just wrapped up a great week teaching in Acadia National Park.  I feel blessed to have had a chance to meet and work with some truly fine people this week.  The park closure (early in the week) weather and light were a bit challenging at times but the energy and enthusiasm of the group more than made up for it.  We had the added bonus of hooking up with David Middleton's workshop group last night for an impromptu pizza party and slideshow session.  Great people all around and as is usually the case I'm leaving more inspired than ever to pursue my craft.

Here's one from a few days ago, perhaps my favorite of the trip.  I often find these intimate scenes more fulfilling than the big, in your face shots at sunrise and sunset.

Red Light, Bass Harbor Light, Acadia National Park, Maine

Well the park opened just in time for our Wild Acadia Workshop to start the other day.  The fog moved in last night and thwarted our hopes of a dramatic sunset but then this happened as twilight advanced.  Arrive early and stay late, but most importantly ARRIVE!  Go out regardless cause you just never know.

Swift River Autumn, White Mtn National Forest, NH

Here's one from this past weekend over on the Swift River, arguably one of the prettiest rivers in New England.  I have to say I've never seen it this low.  This vantage point would be almost impossible during normal flows.  

Getting prepped to head Acadia NP this weekend for 7 days of workshop fun.  Keeping fingers crossed for a deal that would re-open the gov't and our beloved National Parks.

Morning Glow, Groton SF, Vermont

"Sometimes the light's all shining on me..."  

Here's another from the 2013 Autumn in Vermont workshop last week.  Big wind and rain yesterday pretty obliterated the remaining foliage.  My advice is to head for the valleys and streams, or perhaps the coast.  Registration is already open for next year's program, get a spot now because this workshop fills every year!

As always thanks for taking a peek.

Coliseum Vortex, White Mtns, New Hampshire

Spent the day yesterday prowling around the Swift River and Crawford Notch in the Whites.  I have to say the color was very disappointing and waaaay past peak.  When the color is no long on the trees you have to look for it on the ground or in this case, in the water.  The understory is starting to brighten up and we're getting some much needed rain this afternoon and evening so think intimate woodlands and streams during the early part of this week.  Happy shooting everyone cause stick season is right around the corner in the north country.

As always thanks for taking a peek.

Birch Cage, Groton SF, Vermont

Just wrapped up my annual Autumn in Vermont Workshop this morning.  I couldn't have asked for a better group to prowl around Vermont with for the past 5 days.  They were enthusiastic, creative and all around cool folks, oh and the foliage wasn't half bad either ;).  There's still plenty of color out there but things will be peaking quickly, higher elevations are already past in many places.  Not to fear as the understory with be coloring up nicely in the coming days and with some rain in forecast the streams should start to look good again.

Registration is already open for next year's program so get a spot while they last!  http://greenmtnphotoworkshops.com/?workshops=autumn-in-vermont-photography-workshop-2014

Here's one from late last week and as always thanks for taking a peek.

Crystalline Twilight, Jokusarlon, Iceland

Yep, still editing the Iceland images.  I love this beach and on a couple of occasions it gave up some great conditions.  Foliage is starting to pop in my part of the world and I'm off into the field to lead a few workshops in the coming days and weeks so this will have to tide you over for a little while.  I'll try to keep some images coming, more than likely of the advancing fall color.  Hope everyone is out making images!

As always thanks for taking a peek and to all the new followers, welcome!

Sculpted by Light, Iceberg Beach, Jokulsarlon Lagoon, Iceland

I had the best light of my trip at this location on two separate evenings.  There's still a couple of more Iceland images in the hopper that I haven't gotten to yet, so stay tuned.  This image also illustrates my most recent post on the Dreamscapes Blog.  Swing on by and check it out. http://bit.ly/1aTvLms

Fire and Ice, Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon, Iceland

I guess if you go to Iceland you ought to have an image named "Fire and Ice" in the portfolio.  This is from a particularly memorable night at the lagoon.  What can I say?  There was some nice light that night.  Don't tell +Ron Coscorrosa I posted this, he might have a kanipshin.

As always, thanks for taking a peek.

Arches & Canyonlands National Park Photography Workshop

Very pleased to announce that we've added another great workshop to the schedule for 2014. I'll be heading out to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah this April for a fun filed intensive workshop with my co-leader and desert rat himself, George Stocking. George knows the desert like very few photographers working today so this will no doubt be a great experience. For more details or to register online simply hit the link below. Hope to see some of you this spring!

Come Fly Away, Atlantic Puffin, Dyrholaey Iceland

This was definitely one of the coolest experiences from my recent Iceland adventure.  We spent a few hours communing with the Atlantic puffins as they prepared to head back out to sea until next year's breading season.  I've spent time off the coast of Maine photographing puffins from a blind but this was sooooo much better.  You could literally walk right up to them as they perched on the shear cliffs of Dyrholaey.  On this day the wind was fierce coming off the ocean and the puffins were actively "surfing" the shear as it came straight up off the cliffs.  As far as we could tell they were just doing it for fun.  Perhaps they were the young of the year practicing as they were all gone 4-5 days later.

As always thanks for taking a peek.

Selja-prism, Seljafoss, Iceland

Lest everyone thinks the sun never shines in Iceland...  Unfortunately, it seemed to either shine bright or was completely obscured by clouds during my recent trip.  In 9 days I only two good sunset/sunrises.  Most days it was heavy overcast with lots of rain and on the days it wasn't raining it seemed to be bright and sunny.  The scale is hard to parse out but this waterfall, as most in Iceland is huge!  Had a hell of a time getting a clean frame, free from the incessant spray.  I got totally soaked making this image.

As always thanks for taking a peek.

Gate to Reynisfjara, Vik, Iceland

Finally getting back to processing some images from my August trip to Iceland.  Shooting along this beach outside Vik was an awesome experience.  I absolutely fell in love with this black sand beach and the awesome power of the north Atlantic as is pounded this coastline.  This particular evening was actually quite tame, nevertheless I got hit by a couple rogue waves that definitely got my attention.  As always thanks for taking a peek.

Marooned, Iceberg Beach, Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon, Iceland

Haven't had much chance to start the lengthy process of editing my Iceland images and it's so hard to choose which ones to start with.  So, I guess I'll start at the beginning.  

The first couple of days were dominated by heavy overcast and rainy weather, with not much opportunity for shooting.  This is from the first of 3 evenings at the "lagoon" and adjacent beach.  I'd seen lots of images from this place and was eager to shoot it.  Even though it's become rather iconic for Iceland, once you're standing among these elegantly sculpted pieces of ice contrasting against the black sand it all feels very fresh and new.  I've got a few more from this location with more colorful and dramatic skies but I think this overall mood and color palette is more characteristic of what Iexper... more »

Under the Iceland Sky, Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon Area, Iceland  

I just got back from a whirlwind ten day trip to Iceland.  Overall the weather pretty much sucked while I was there, with exception of a couple days that provided some good skies at sunrise and sunset.  It was a lot of fun exploring the countryside and meeting some wonderful folks.  I suppose like most that have visited Iceland I'll be heading back at at some point for sure.

I'm just starting to dig through some images and thought I throw this one up first.  It's from early in the trip shortly arriving back at camp after some great light on the famed Iceberg Beach at Jorkulsarlon.

As always thanks for taking a peek.

Arizona Desert in Spring - 2014

I'm very excited to announce this new workshop offering for spring 2014. The floral display of the Sonoran Desert in springtime is one of the visual wonders of the world, and should be on everybody's photgraphic bucket list! Join Arizona Highways Magazine photographer George Stocking and I for this 5 day workshop during the peak of the spring desert bloom. George has lived and photographed this area for his entire career and knows it like no other.

We also have some other great workshops scheduled with more on the way; Olympic National Park in May with Ian Plant, Autumn in Vermont and Acadia National Park with Joseph Rossbach in October. Check the website for complete details or message me for details.

Busy around the office this week finalizing the 2014 workshop schedule and making preparations to leave for Iceland next Tuesday. We still have a couple of spaces available for this year's Autumn in Vermont Workshop, Sept 28 - October 2. It's arguably the best time to visit and photograph Vermont. Last year's foliage was off the charts and there's no reason to believe this year will be any different. These spaces won't last long!

Hog Island Dreaming, Audubon Camp of Maine, Maine

Spent a great week leading photo workshops at the Audubon Camp of Maine's Educators Week recently.  Lots of great fun exploring Hog Island and Muscongus Bay, naturalizing, botanizing, birding, tide pooling and of course photographing with a bunch of amazing educators, both formal and informal from all over the country.  In many cases these are the folks on the front line of the current environmental education movement and are some amazing folks with tons of energy and unyielding desire to share it with others.  It was truly an inspiring experience.

This image was made as the heatwave that gripped the east coast finally broke last weekend.  As always thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

Dog Days of Summer, Green Mtns, Vermont

It's been hot and humid for the past couple of weeks and is really beginning to feel like the dog days of summer are upon us.  This is from a couple of weeks back when we were getting big thunderstorms ever afternoon and evening, which usually resulted in some pretty skies around sunset.

I'm heading over to the Audubon Camp of Maine on Hog Island for 6 days to teach some photography as part of their educator's week.  Looking forward to spending some time in the salt air.  Should get some coastal shooting in as well.  Be good while I'm gone!

As always thanks for taking a peek.

Grandview Awakening, Stowe, Vermont

Well the past couple of weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind; back to back to back to back private workshops, some personal shooting, end of the school year for the kiddos and prepping several presentations that I'll be giving at the Canadian Assoc. of Photographic Arts conference at the end of the week in Fredricton, NB.  Oh and did I mention that I've had to upgrade the computer hardware and software that I'm using and of course there have been a few hiccups along the way?  Things are mostly dialed in and I'm off and running on this new macbook pro.

I wrote this post last year right around Father's Day in honor of my dad. I thought I'd "re-publish" it today as a little reminder that none of us has made it to where we are without the help and guidance of an important adult; a parent or parents, mentor, teacher, coach, etc. Thanks for that camera Dad and the freedom and encouragement to explore the world and tell stories through pictures!

Meander, Green Mtns, Vermont

Here's a quick one for the evening crowd.  We've been getting more than enough rain this summer and the streams are looking quite full.  Loved the tones and textures in this and couldn't resist a b&w presentation.

Crazy busy this month, workshop this past weekend, a two day workshop starting tomorrow, part one of a two part architectural interior today, and oh yeah doing 5 presentations at the Canadian Camera Conference in New Brunswick at the end of the month. Yowza!

Delicate Veil, Moss Glen Falls, Vermont

Had a great time yesterday working with a talented and enthusiastic group of Vermont photographers whose main goals were advanced field techniques and photographing with intent.  We spent most of the day working some of my favorite streams and waterfalls as the remnants of Andrea cleared the Green Mountain State, before making our way over to Lake Champlain for sunset.  

As much as I love the more classic wide angle view of this waterfall I sometimes prefer a more isolated extraction of its many braids and rivulets.  It's always reminded me of a lacy veil.  I purposefully left the white balance cooler to accentuate the blue tones in the open shade.

As always thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.

Split Rock Twilight, Olympic National Park

Still going through some files from my trip out to Olympic National Park in May.  Most of the trip was dominated by high pressure, cloudless skies.  Making the most of these conditions often means shooting during the twilight.  This classic view at Rialto Beach provides some nice graphic elements to help anchor the composition and provide a nice contrast to the twilight blue sky.

As always, thanks for taking a peek and feel free to share.
