Ron Clifford2,738,352On the show +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn   will share how she got started in astrophotography, explain her fabulous setup and show a few of her favourite deep sky images, (you don't want to miss this!). Afterwards, Kerry-Ann get into an example of her workflow for processing a deep sky astro image from pre processing (image stacking) to final post processing in Photoshop...... I have got to see this."After getting my first telescope at the age of 11 and then my first film camera as a teenager I was hooked on the concept of taking pictures of deep space. Ever since then I have strived to improve my skills in astrophotography and in the process have produced images that have won awards, been featured in calendars, magazines, books and online publications such as Sky News POW and NASA APOD. While enjoying this hobby, I have a full time career as a meteorologist and  I love life with my husband and two girls".My Website is  www.weatherandsky.comYour loyal hosts +Jan Kabili  and +Ron Clifford  will be joined by producer +Dave Bell  and panelists, the  extraordinary +Erika Thornes  and +Dan Hughes  #photoshop #astrophotography #deepspace  The Photoshop Show 50 - with Guest Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn2014-01-29 03:00:0097G+

Donegal Photowalk 2014211Here is the official Event for the 2013 UK Seaside Photowalk. The official kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am. Then again, there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Please indicate whether you will be joining us, so we have a rough idea of how many people we can expect. Please note that this is not a confirmed booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome. If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points in a few weeks. We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option. CheersAthena & AndyUK Seaside Photowalk2013-10-05 09:00:0071G+

Gailen Mapes66,759Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 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 +2014-08-04 10:49:57148309CC G+

Gailen Mapes64,770Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 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 Mapes2014-06-04 10:27:00163605CC G+

#PLUSpost  +Robin Griggs Wood +The Arcanum 

So week 1 has come and gone of my time in The Arcanum

It's been a blur of activity from the getting to know you's to critiquing others images and consequently I've ignored my wider Google streams. But now you know where I've been.

The plus post is a weekly thing that is meant to be short and sweet about something positive that has happened that week or a milestone reached.

I think for me, what best sums it up is this George Bernard Shaw quote:

_"Those who can’t change their minds can’t change anything.” _

So the positive I'm taking forward is that I recognise I have changed my mindset and thus I can change anything in relation to my photography.

I'll leave you with a re-share of one of my favourite images that I've taken recently.

Private Beach View

I promised myself I wasn't going to get the camera out today ... but as I'm sat supping some Karlovačko (a local Croatian beer) from our veranda I couldn't help but be moved by the play of light.

So glass down, grab the tripod and camera and a literally a few short steps to our own private bit of shoreline and this is one of angles we are currently getting get to view every day!

Sorry.

BTW - the island in the distance is actually owned by the same folks that own the apartment we are staying in. How cool is that?

A Flower for My Love

Today, Mrs. D & I celebrate 28yrs of marriage.

Let me tell you. It hasn't been all plain sailing - we've had bumps along the way and heartaches that could sink a ship. But love & commitment are things you work at.

They show your true character. Whether you are prepared to work at fixing an issue or let it fester and ultimately destroy a beautiful thing. I'm no wordsmith but I shall point you at Robin Griggs Wood post from yesterday http://bit.ly/1lm8n5Q for how to love (and be loved).

Here's to the next 28...! - slàinte.

Private Beach View

I promised myself I wasn't going to get the camera out today ... but as I'm sat supping some Karlovačko (a local Croatian beer) from our veranda I couldn't help but be moved by the play of light.

So glass down, grab the tripod and camera and a literally a few short steps to our own private bit of shoreline and this is one of angles we are currently getting get to view every day!

Sorry.

BTW - the island in the distance is actually owned by the same folks that own the apartment we are staying in. How cool is that?

Heartaches

As you may be aware we are on holiday in Croatia. Until very recently it has been known as Yugoslavia and we paid a visit to a part of one of the other sections of that former country and now known as Bosnia & Herzogovina. 

Whilst in the beautiful old town of Trebinje we came across the war memorial and 3rd from bottom is the date 1975 - 1991 next to a teenagers name. Every time I see something like this my heart aches and breaks just a little bit more. To my mind what made this worse is not 100m from this memorial is a WWII memorial which depicts Bosnians, Serbians & Croats together - we humans just never seem to learn.

Fisherman's Bay, Molunat, Croatia

My eldest has been impatient to get me to this rickety wooden structure since we arrived ... and I have to say I can see why. Pretty much every day throughout the summer months this is the view that tower gives.

It's such a peaceful and romantic spot that my newphew proprosed to his girlfriend here just two days ago .....  and I have to say I can see why my son wanted to get me here. Forget H&S, this view beats all that hands down.

Have a great weekend all - we're off top Trebinje in Bosnia & Herzegovina tomorrow. I'm told they have some stunning ice cream.

#PLUSpost - Week 4 +The Arcanum
+Robin Griggs Wood

Dubrovnik Sunset or
... The Image That Shouldn't Have Happened

you'll have to read to find out why

So I've been in Robin's Arcanum Cohort for 4 weeks now and have progressed to what is half way through the first 'sphere' to Level 5 - it's definitely secret society stuff with all these names :)

I've really enjoyed getting here and wanted to almost rush to that point due to my family holiday. Since I attained Level 5 via a hangout with Robin I'm energised to go out and snap and create imagery for myself as well as for folks to view. One of the key things Robin and my fellow Arcanumers have got me thinking about is a direction for my photography.

One of the key things Robin and my fellow Arcanumers have got me thinking about is a direction for my photography. To date it has very much been a go out and snap and share what I'm seeing / feeling and hoping that you also get that same feeling... be that peace or lazy summer days or whatever...

I'm still not there with a direction or an end goal or even a goal along the way and will just take what I can get for now and keep learning from everyone.

Now this image and my secondary title .... my family and I arrived in Dubrovnik (a sweltering 32˚C) and arrived at out accommodation to find that the owner of the apartment we booked is an out and out crook and the 3 rooms with kitchen, etc turned out to be only 2 rooms with only beds for 4 and no kitchen, etc.... after much discussion ...well I say discussion. She wouldn't listen to me and the brief times she did, she couldn't understand me & she gave me my money and threw us out.

So there we are mid-summer, no accommodation for 3 nights and wondering what to do. Just round the corner we found the Hotel Rixos and whilst they were full their staff went out of their way to help us and ended up finding us an apartment (at considerable extra expense - which we should get back via insurance) and to this balcony sunset shot... so, as I say, the shot that shouldn't have happened.___

I'm going ... who else wants to join me?

I can even offer space in a car from Belfast airport (City or International) on the Friday and I plan to go via Giant's Causeway before heading to Letterkenny.

Here is the official Event for the 2014 Donegal Photowalk. The kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am, however,  there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Some of us will even be there already on Thursday and Friday. (A good place to find the earlybirds is probably the local bar scene). 

Please note that you don't have to confirm a booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome. 

If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points soon. 

We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option. 

Cheers
Athena, John & Andy___I'm going ... who else wants to join me?

Desktop TPE is going

Full details in the link but due to Google turning off the Google maps Flash API then anybody that has a local install of TPE will find it will stop working in September.

There is a web app replacement already available but you are advised to backup your locations now.

Storm or Shine

I watched a video the other day where +Matt Kloskowski said you don't get black clouds (I forget the exact subject matter now) - well clearly he's never been to South Wales or most places in the UK because I'll guarantee we get black clouds. Either that or I'm completely colour blind ;)

Anyway - I loved the play of light in this shot and the dramatic swing in moods it gives from will it rain or will the sun force its way through ....

Have you discovered "Shot Hot Spot" yet? I'm quietly pleased that's it appears to be the first photo location search engine that actually has something within 5 miles of where I live let alone another continent!

And they're here on Google+ too.

I have no internet connection at home so am reduced to having to share interesting info.

These tutorials from +Triggertrap may help folks looking to get into this type of photography - sure they'll be biased towards owners of their product (I have one) but general principles still apply.

Nash Point Chimping

Last nights sunset attracted a lot of photographers to this point ... usually I come here and it's deserted but I guess between the baking hot days we are currently getting (please note, I am not complaining) and the fact that this place is free to get too after 5pm drew in a few folks.

The number of them that just 'snapped & chimped' was quite funny to watch. Me... I took my book as the family is away for the week and caught up on some reading.

Oh, and I snapped this beauty. It's a 2 exposure gradient blend (again?) and then a tweak to the ultra brights via a luminance mask.

Managing Google+ Photos

So if I'd had a brain said The Scarecrow I would have started my online photo organising before this but ....

So question ... How can I mass move photos between folders? Do I need to use Picasa desktop or is there some other magic way? If at all possible I'd love to keep the comments already acquired but if not then I guess I'd still like to better organise them.

Suggestions please?

Hay Bale Sunset

I'm loving being a member of +Robin Griggs Wood  cohort in +The Arcanum  because it's making me (re)think everything from how I setup for a shot to its capture and subsequent post processing.

How I Got This Shot:
Once the composition was set I exposed for the foreground and then I exposed a 2nd shot for the sky. Back in Lightroom I applied lens correction tweaks and then opened the two images as layers in PS. Here I applied a linear gradient to blend the two shots together. Finally I dropped the image back to LR, cleaned up dust spots and adjusted highlights & shadows.

Interestingly I was wondering just the other day if my on insurance would cover me for a complete loss of my gear! Certainly they paid up for my self inflicted lens smash last year but how much would they pay..... I guess I need to check.

Meantime, if you have a few dollars you could spare +Swee Oh to help her get back and working then I'm certain she will be ever grateful. You could even get one of her beautiful images in print form.

Fund Raising - selling my prints

Hi everyone, this is something I would not normally do, but I have thought long and hard about it and have decided to share this. 2 weekends ago the most painful thing happened to me while I was out on a photowalk with some visiting photographer friends. While taking a long exposure shot by the coast, a sudden gust of wind blew my tripod, Canon 5D Mark III and 17-40mm lens into the water.  The camera fell and hit the rocks so hard that the lens broke off from the camera body. Everything happened so fast. I had made sure my tripod was steady after the setup unfortunately as I turned to get my filter, in a split second the wind knocked my tripod over, fell a good 6 ft, hitting the rocks. The next thing I knew, my camera was already in the water, I was in a state of shock, stood there helpless as I watched the waves went over the exposed camera body. I climbed down the slippery rocks as fast as I could, picked up the tripod, pick up my lens and my camera and as I poured the salt water out from the broken body, It was painful as I felt like I lost a part of me. It was painful when I rinsed the body with distilled water to clean out the salt water and bits of seaweed when I got home. It was only camera I owned. I sent the camera and lens immediately to Canon the next day, with the hopes I could have them repaired at an affordable price. Unfortunately, I received news they could not be saved due to salt water damage.  The timing could not have happened at a worse time, as I am planning to pursue Architecture photography full time once my day job ends in September.  Due to some financial setbacks, its tough for me to get a new full frame camera and replacement lens for now. So I am hoping to raise some funds in exchange of my prints. I do not expect to raise the amount I am looking for, but any funds from my purchased prints would help in every way. 

Please do take a look at my funding page for more details and pricing on the prints. Thank you all again for your support in my work!! Really appreciate it!!!

#PLUSpost  Week 2 +Robin Griggs Wood

So week 2 has come and gone in a blur. More new folks being added to our cohort and lots of new images to get through.

For me personally it's mostly been about ensuring I get to my Level 5 before my holidays and then I can kick back. To get to Level 5 I need to have 5 of my images critiqued by the big boss lady and that's happening tonight for me... oh and I need to get a certain minimum score....! gulp

Pre level 5 you need to have 'hungout' with at least one other cohort member and critiqued each others work - so my week started with a hangout with 3 fabulous ladies from our cohort +Maureen Roberson +Ursula Klepper & +Justine King  . That's America, Germany and Australia. We certainly covered the timezones.  Lots of greatsugges... more »

Taking account of the suggestions my colleagues have made I've since been tweaking the 5 images I have ultimately decided to go forward with ....  this is one of them.

It has been a good week of learning and trying new stuff but my frustration this week has been at myself / situation. I've not been able to get out and about as much with my camera as I really want.

Colour Noise in Photography - part II

+Richard Ball +Matthieu Oostveen +Ellie Kennard 

Hey guys ... only today have I managed to try my new Firestone ND16 from +Formatt-Hitech and I have to say I'm happy. The attached crop is a 2:1 crop (200% zoom) of an image I was shooting today and it was a 492 second exposure or 8m 12s (why I don't know...).

Anyway whilst it wasn't bright sunshine I do have similar images that are from overcast days in the 4 to 5m exposure range that are horrendous on the colour noise with the old Formatt-Hitech ND10, 6 & 3 filters. However on the Firestone you have to be hunting really hard to find it. My bank balance is saved I hope .. next test on a bright sunny day.

In fact at 100% you really need a magnifying glass and at 200% only really just starts to become visible with careful scrutiny. To say I'm happyis ... more »

Still, I don't see any ultra long exposures coming anytime soon.___

Today's Coffee Thursday

... is brought to you by the fine folks at Kopi (http://www.kopi.co.uk) and the specialty coffee this month is: Burundi Gitanga - a rare and unique tasting coffee.

Just like wine all coffee's have a nose and a taste - the aroma for this is one of dark chocolate, orange & dried fruits. It's taste is of red apples, ripe mangoes & chocolate with a full body and crisp citrus finish.

Let me just say - I like it :)

#PLUSpost  +Robin Griggs Wood +The Arcanum 

So week 1 has come and gone of my time in The Arcanum

It's been a blur of activity from the getting to know you's to critiquing others images and consequently I've ignored my wider Google streams. But now you know where I've been.

The plus post is a weekly thing that is meant to be short and sweet about something positive that has happened that week or a milestone reached.

I think for me, what best sums it up is this George Bernard Shaw quote:

_"Those who can’t change their minds can’t change anything.” _

So the positive I'm taking forward is that I recognise I have changed my mindset and thus I can change anything in relation to my photography.

I'll leave you with a re-share of one of my favourite images that I've taken recently.

Coffee Thursday

In all the excitement of a new toy I've been busy getting started with The Arcanum (more on that in later posts) I almost forgot that today is coffee thursday. Then as if by order, a post drops into my mailbox about The Vault - a coffee shop that has no staff!!! Really. Follow the link for more deets.

Fire up your coffee machines folks and get those shots snapped and tag in your Brew Crew of +Jason Kowing +Maki Silberberg +Sairam Sundaresan and mysel +Stuart Dyckhoff and don't forget our #coffeethursday  tag.

Photo Blogs

I'm looking to re-vamp my RSS feeds (for which I use feedly) to be more useful to me. To that end I want to know your photo blogs or ons you recommend I follow.

Only real criteria I have is that the blog is more than just a place that displays pictures. I'd like it to be informational and / or educational and possibly even challenging in the creative ideas department.

Over to you... please :-)

From the ashes.

This is a partial view of the refurbished / rebuilt pier at Weston-super-mare. The title comes from the fact that the pier building was destroyed by fire in 2008. It took until late 2010 before it reopened.

To my mind, the best part about this new pavilion is the F1 simulator. First time I've tried one of these and it was awesome fun. The downside is that you have to pay a £1 just to get on the pier which is a crying shame. Piers should be open and any charge is in the 'entertainments'.

I love my tripod.

It's a Giottos MTL 8361 B.

My son +Owen Dyckhoff calls it my ninja tripod because of the weird and wonderful positions it can be put in.

But one thing flummoxes me. It comes with a "short stub" to allow it to go ultra close to the ground without the centre column getting in the way - however whenever I fit it (no instructions came with it of course) it just spins round and round. Which means locking it in to a specific position will never happen.

Anybody have a Giotto's and a short stub that doesn't have this?

Steepholm
As shot from the beach at Weston-Super-Mare (aka Weston-super-Mud)

When the tide goes out this beach rapidly turns to mud so I didn't venture any closer to the shoreline. Despite this being a 300s LE the clouds don't have much movement. There was a stiff onshore breeze but seemingly nothing much above which in the end made this image not so nice as the lovely blue didn't interlace with the clouds giving that sense of movement.

Look what slipped into my shopping basket +Matthieu Oostveen 

+Formatt-Hitech new Firecrest ND 16 stop filter. But no gasket on it as it's quite a bit thicker and heavier than the +Joel Tjintjelaar Signature set.

Now I just need to find time to use it.

#coffeethursday  +Jason Kowing +Maki Silberberg +Sairam Sundaresan and +Stuart Dyckhoff 

My coffee machine needed de-scaling today - it seems this is happening more and more quickly these days ... either my machine is getting old or I'm drinking too much coffee...

Nah! 

Don't forget to share your caffeine induced shots with your Brew Crew today.

Penblywdd Hapus +Andy Lee 

If you haven't come across Andy yet then today is a good day to start - make his birthday special by upping his follower count.

As a fellow Welshman I'm happy to have him in my circles and just love seeing his images. The one below is one of my recent favourites.

Best father's day gift ever.

In case you can't work it out from my crappy phone shot it's DAD in wax with one side of the A holding a candle wick. It was only after it was almost burnt out that I thought to capture it.

Hand made by my 11yr old whilst away on a scouting weekend because he knew he wouldn't be here for most of it.

A Flower for My Love

Today, Mrs. D & I celebrate 28yrs of marriage.

Let me tell you. It hasn't been all plain sailing - we've had bumps along the way and heartaches that could sink a ship. But love & commitment are things you work at.

They show your true character. Whether you are prepared to work at fixing an issue or let it fester and ultimately destroy a beautiful thing. I'm no wordsmith but I shall point you at Robin Griggs Wood post from yesterday http://bit.ly/1lm8n5Q for how to love (and be loved).

Here's to the next 28...! - slàinte.

Into the sunset

Went for a walk with the two ladies in my life tonight as one boy is away camping with Scouts and the other is on a train home after his first week of work.

Grabbed this shot in a place called Kenfig Pool which is also a nature reserve and it was only after I stood up that I realised the ground was literally swarming with baby frogs.

How I made this shot: It's a 2 minute exposure using 13 stops of ND at f/11 and ISO 100. In Lightroom I made a minor crop on the left hand side and then converted it to B&W with +Nik Collection by Google SEP2  #nikcollection

Whoooo you looking at?

I just realised it is +Robin Cohen birthday today and couldn't let the opportunity go by without wishing her penblywdd hapus. If you don't know Robin then do stop by her stream and check out her imagery - she has a unique style of presenting which I just love.

But it also means I get to share another image from our trip to Birdland last Saturday - what a wonderful place and the keepers were so friendly and knowledgeable. So much so we had to tweet about it...!

I have my 2014 images back to edit ... so lets start with this adorkable little chap. He's a Humboldt penguin and so stats tell me there are less than 10,000 of them left in the world making it one of the rarest of penguins.

Crash, Bang, Wallop 
with apologies to the original Flash, Bang Wallop

And as the next line goes - "What a picture, what a photograph" Or in my case wait another day and you can access your images again. Although the estimate is 1.3 days I fully expect that to vanish overnight when line contention goes down.

And as my replacement HDD doesn't arrive until tomorrow I don't really want to start messing before then ... but at least I'll be ready with my 2014 images and lightoom catalog. All other images will take considerably longer to grab ~10 days!

No Photographs

My youngest, whilst digging around my PC for a controller that he wasn't supposed to have, managed to send my external USB drive crashing to the floor.

It now has a dreadful click, click, click sound and Spinrite appears to be having no luck in resurrecting it. And on this drive are all my photographs and Lightroom catalogue.

Bottom line - all my images are safe as my backups are multi-homed but it's going to take time to get me back to sharing as I need a new drive and time to restore.

::sigh::
