Drink And Click™ SF536With over 200 parade contingents, 300 exhibitors, and more than 20 stages and venues, the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest LGBT gathering in the nation. And Drink & Click San Francisco will be joining in the celebration! Join your hosts +Alexis Coram, +Robyn Chau, and +Tony Eckersley as we drink and click around the sights and sounds of the Pride Celebration, including the parade (http://sfpride.org/parade/route.html). This months theme is RED, so be on the lookout for some color! Feel free to dress up! This will be a fun weekend with the festival and the 2nd G+ anniversary! ****** This Drink and Click will be in reverse - It will actually be a click and drink. The Parade kicks off at 10:30 a.m, so we are going to meet as early as possible on the north side of Market and Hyde to get a good spot (10.00am is still the meet up time). Then we'll head to the festival area around 11:30 or so, and meet everyone by the Civic Center around 11:45. There are vendors set up everywhere to get drinks from, so we'll playing the drinking part by ear. For those arriving late, keep an eye out on the event for updates. As an FYI, there's a $5 donation to enter the celebration area.  AND, our lovely +Alexis Coram has managed to secure some kick-ass prizes. There will be one copy of Nik Software, along with other prizes to win. You've got to be present to win, people - details on contests will be randomly announced throughout the event!Drink & Click & Pride SF2013-06-30 19:00:0067

Eric Raeber1,167,455I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0013

Gailen Mapes85,582Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 18 of 27Note: 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 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.2015-04-18 12:33:58151000

Gailen Mapes84,165Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 18 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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             #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.2015-03-18 10:19:48162001

The Wave

We had a chance to visit Valley of Fire State Park during our visit to Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago. What a wonderful day for a hike with some visiting friends and our local "guide" +John Getchel - it was so great to finally meet you and +Pam Boling on this trip!

Sorry I've been absent most of the last couple of weeks, I've had a project hanging over my head and that is now finished so I can enjoy my time here again!

First Wave of Color

This was early in the evening before the another wave of amazing color exploded in the sky after the sun disappeared. From one of our amazing evenings at Anjajavy L'Hotel in Madagascar. We almost missed dinner every evening while out shooting sunset, but they were always gracious enough to still feed us! Have a great week everyone...

Red Shouldered Hawk

Here is another shot of my favorite hawk from the rehab facility near here. This one flew into a chicken wire fence and damaged their eye. I haven't heard how his progress is going or if he was released back to the wild yet...

Lighting with Intent Mentorship

Have you always wanted to learn how to control light to enhance your photography: off-camera flash, light modifiers and other lighting techniques? Now is the time! +Eric Raeber is still taking sign-ups for his  +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers  - Lighting with Intent - an advanced mentorship. Please read Eric's post in its entirety to make sure you have or can get access to all of the required equipment and that you understand how to operate your camera prior to signing up. I will disable comments on this post, because he will only see responses to his original post.

My mentorship on Lighting with Intent is ready for sign-ups!

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you understand light and make use of it to add emotion to your photography rather than have it constrain your creativity. You will learn and experiment with off-camera flash, light modifiers, combine flash with ambient light, and play with a host of other lighting techniques.

I will be taking on a handful of people for a nine week online mentorship program which includes lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time.

My passion for photography (or more precisely conceptual photography) has burgeoned over twenty years ago. Photography has always been for me a playground for art to intersect with technology; a place where I can explore new domains by pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone. Lighting is one such domain.

I will be joined by an outstanding group of passionate photographers, artists, helpers, who will be there for questions and discussions as well as dispensing a good dose of cheer up. If you are as excited to acquire new skills as I am to share them, join me for an exciting and creative ride.

This is an advanced class. In order to participate, you must have a solid understanding of your camera and exposure in manual mode. You will need a camera with a flash hot-shoe (SLR or mirrorless). By the time we start, you will also need at minimum the following lighting equipment:

   - An off-camera flash on which you can manually adjust the power
   - A flash remote trigger (cable or wireless)
   - A light stand with a softbox (or alternatively an umbrella)
   - A reflector (or a large piece of white cardboard)
   - A set of gels. For example the Rosco Strobist kit
   - A tripod for your camera

If you are looking for specifics, here is the equipment I am using: www.ericraeber.com/Blog/Studio-lighting

PLEASE NOTE: Do not apply for this workshop if you do not meet these criteria.

Selections will begin on April 15th and the mentorship will start on April 25th

This is not first come first served. We will review the application and here are my selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three posts per week; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a weekly post and 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 will be given about 3 different assignments each week.

• You must own or have access to the equipment above during this entire mentorship

I will use the same selection criteria that +Robin Griggs Wood uses for her "G+ Mentorship Art for Photographers Program", which you can read about here to see if you qualify:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/105385385448524520257/posts/BT1Ei9qD2fi

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+EricRaeber/posts/CGeSiag5RRp and answer the following questions in your comment:

1) Photography skill level
2) List the lighting equipment you own (or will have access to)
3) Your three favorite subjects
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation

EXAMPLE ANSWERS
1) Intermediate hobby photographer, shooting for 5 years
2) Canon Rebel T3i, 2 x Yongnuo YN-560 flash, RF trigger, softbox, stand, gels, tripod, reflector
3) Still Life, Portraits, Macro
4) To get my first paid shoot for a client
5) Full-time grocery store clerk
6) I have no previous art studies
7) I do have a job and two kids, but have most evenings free.

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

Have you always wanted to learn how to control light to enhance your photography: off-camera flash, light modifiers and other lighting techniques? Now is the time! +Eric Raeber is still taking sign-ups for his  +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers  - Lighting with Intent - an advanced mentorship. Please read Eric's post in its entirety to make sure you have or can get access to all of the required equipment and that you understand how to operate your camera prior to signing up. I will disable comments on this post, because he will only see responses to his original post.

Perfect Ending

Sunset from our last night at Andasibe-Mantadia National Park near Perinet, Madagasar. Our trip to Madagascar was mostly about seeing the animals - out at or before sunrise with additional walks at dusk or after dinner- we didn't have many occasions to see sunset when you are closed in by the forest!  Hope you enjoy...

Peek-a-Boo

Inside a Magnolia blossom, these are usually so high up in a tree that they are hard to get a photo of. This tree wasn't too big yet, so there were still some blossoms at eye level.

Where, oh where, does the time go? I've hardly been at my computer all week. I trust you all enjoyed your week and had a wonderful weekend! Cheers everyone!!!

First Bloom

With all of the warm weather we've been having (we seem to have skipped Winter and all of the rain we need this year), the roses are already starting to bloom. This is one of the first ones I've seen this season. Just a little Spring color to brighten your day, enjoy!

First Wave of Color

This was early in the evening before the another wave of amazing color exploded in the sky after the sun disappeared. From one of our amazing evenings at Anjajavy L'Hotel in Madagascar. We almost missed dinner every evening while out shooting sunset, but they were always gracious enough to still feed us! Have a great week everyone...

Red Moon

Many of you experienced a partial solar eclipse today, so I was reminded that I never posted any of my total lunar eclipse shots from last year. It was really fun to watch the earth's shadow move across the moon and then turn this reddish color at the height of the eclipse. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Final Plus Post
For the past 7 weeks I have been participating in the Seeing Composition Mentorship with +Pam Boling  as part of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. This is the 5th mentorship program I've helped with and they just keep getting better and better.

I was delighted to be a helper for this great program. I love helping others learn and am happy to share whatever I can with folks. Thanks so much, Pam, for allowing me to help with this great group. 

Mostly though, I was a student learning along with everyone else. We received a lesson each week with different compositional tools to practice. Some of them I was familiar with while others were new and turned out to be very thought provoking and fun to experiment with.

Mostly though, I was a student learning along with everyone else. We received a lesson each week with different compositional tools to practice. Some of them I was familiar with while others were new and turned out to be very thought provoking and fun to experiment with. I always know which shots I like when reviewing them later, but I wasn't always sure why. Now I have a much better idea of why a particular shot will turn out better and have a more interesting feel to it, even if the differences are very subtle. I hope to get to a point that these things are more intuitive and I'll "know" before I click that shutter button! 

A lot of hard work goes into completing the lessons every week. We all struggled at times, but there was plenty of support and encouragement from everyone at every turn. It was great to celebrate our triumphs, too. What a great group of folks to share this journey with! Thanks to each and every one of you!!!

And let's not forget our fearless leader, Pam Boling. She agreed to take on a larger group than originally anticipated and she made sure to see and comment on every single post. No question or concern was ever left unattended, she gave us great feedback and support but wasn't afraid to push us if we weren't headed in the right direction. We stretched our minds and were pushed out of our comfort zone only to come out on the other side as stronger photographers with many great new tools to appreciate and work with going forward. Thanks so much for your inspiring words and great lessons!

If you think you might be interested in participating in a photography mentorhsip, be sure to circle the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers page and watch for notifications of future programs. They are very rewarding and truly worth the hard work and effort you put into it.

Here is a sample of the images I created during the mentorship.___

Wait, You're Not a Tree...

This cute little brown-fronted lemur hopped out of the tree and landed on +Alex Lapidus's shoulder for a bit. This guy is from Lemur Island at Vakona Lodge next to Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar. The guides bring bananas for the lemurs, so they are quite friendly. It is quite a jolt when one of them jumps out of a tree to land on you since they normally come at you from the side or the back and perch on your camera backpack! Have a wonderful week everyone...

Patiently Waiting...

This cute little puppy would patiently wait for "Mom" to throw the toy while we all waited for sunset. Very cute to see them together. Just off Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii. Enjoy your week everyone!

Octopus Sunset

They have these wild spindly trees in Madagascar called Octopus trees, but beware of their bite. They also have tons of huge thorns and live in the spiny desert areas - this one is from Ifaty.

Sign-ups are now open! Please reply on the original post only...

Sign up here for the Camera Basics: Beyond Automatic 3 mentorship!


►►► Read the instructions before you sign up! ◄◄◄

This is a special program through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers designed to help you get to know your camera better and be able to move into Manual shooting mode. A group of mentors will be taking on a handful of people for a 6-week online mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

We have assembled a very able group of quality, knowledgeable and caring photographers from the Google+ community who want to share their understanding and experience with you.


PLEASE NOTE: This is a camera BASICS workshop only, designed to help an individual past shooting on Auto mode exclusively. It will cover how to use the various manual options for DSLR cameras and some "point and shoot" cameras that have a dedicated Manual mode. Do not apply for this workshop if your camera does not have a Manual mode. 

Group size is LIMITED.

Signups will be open for several days, and are not first-come first-served.  Selections will be announced by Thursday, Feb 26th, and the first lesson post will be Saturday, Feb 28th. You will need to have the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers page circled to receive the private message, if you are selected.

• You must have the time available to participate in this workshop.

Body Surfing

I didn't even notice this guy enjoying the waves when we were out on the North Shore of Oahu to watch the action, what a nice surprise! Looks like he was having a lot of fun body surfing the waves near shore, no board necessary.

Lull in the Traffic

Baobab Avenue in Madagascar is quite a busy place in the couple of hours before sunrise and in the early morning hours (and then again in early evening and just after dark) since the midday sun can be brutally hot. Caught the scene during a lull in the traffic, just one pedestrian. A truly amazing place!

Checking Us Out

We saw this beautiful little red grey fox a few weeks ago at golf as we finished our round. She paused briefly to check us out before continuing on her way. Several of these beauties live at the course and I believe this one has the most lush coat. Maybe I'll see her again tomorrow...
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone!
(Note:  After a closer look, I think this is a grey fox. They often still have a substantial amount of red on them.)

She felt frozen between ticks of a clock.  _They_ came and went.  Some stopped and stared; others passed without a glance.  She never felt tired or hungry; never slept.  She never felt joy, or hope, or anticipation.  There was no true light, or darkness.

But there was motion.  Beings and groups from every corner of the galaxy came and went.  Styles of clothing and adornment changed and evolved.  Her...container...took on different electromagnetic properties, and she somehow sensed other changes she could not quite perceive.

And then, there was an Idea...

Bird of Paradise

I'm surprised that these are still blooming in the backyard at this time of year. Always liked these flowers, but they have such a busy background for photographs, so I brought one inside. Love the isolation, so colorful...

The Madagascan long-eared owl is the largest owl on the island and typically lives in heavily wooded areas. We found this one in Andisibe-Mantadia National Park very high up in the trees around sunset. Very beautiful birds and owls are one of my most favorites!

Last Color of Fall

Most of the trees have lost their leaves, but a few trees were still hanging on to those precious leaves and scattering that last bit of fall color. From a visit to Uvas Canyon a couple of weeks ago. Might have to find some time to head back there with the recent rains, I'm betting the river is running a lot fuller now. Enjoy your week everyone!

Soggy Deer

We stopped by on a rainy afternoon and saw this shy and soggy mule deer checking us out at Rocky Mountain Arsenal in Denver. What a wonderful wildlife area they've created there now after it's troubled past. Well worth a visit and it's close to downtown. (Here is a link if you want to have a quick read about the transformation of the area: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Mountain_Arsenal_National_Wildlife_Refuge )  Wonderful week everyone!

Step Pyramid of Djoser

Located in the Saqqara, the earliest Egyptian pyramids were step pyramids like this one from the Third Dynasty of Pharaohs, built in 27BC. The Ancient Egyptians started building "true pyramids" with smooth sides in the Fourth Dynasty.  Ok, enough for the history lesson, can you find all five men on the side of this pyramid???

Boing, Boing, Boing...

The sifakas in Madagascar were the most fun to watch and we were always hoping they would come down out of the trees. They have such an unusual way that they dance along instead of walking on all fours as the other lemurs do. This one is a Verreaux's Sifaka from Berenty Preserve. (Here is a link to a short video to give you an idea of how they move: The Dancing Verreaux's Sifakas - Berenty, Madagascar HD )
