Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116935056

Zvonimir Fras17,307101 Amazing PhotographersI don't usually share circles of my own......this is a special occasion, since I've gathered 100 photographers who's work I really like.It took me more than a year, and many of them came to my attention when I started managing +Stunning Moment alongside +Alycia Miller.Some of them are extremely popular with millions of followers, and some of them have less than 10 or 100 followers.Some are very active on G+, some are mostly active on other sites.If you're into photography (and you are if you're seeing this post) this is the circle you want to add ;)Feel free to share this with each and every photography-lover you know, they will thank you ;)Please tell me if you think I missed someone! I'm always looking for new talents! :D--I was told to include this hashtags cause people like them :)#sharedcircle   #topsharedcircle   #circlesharing   #circleshare  #circles #sharedpubliccircles     #sharedcircles  #circle #amazing #photographers #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare  2014-01-02 18:33:13101351935

Ironically, I'd like to celebrate the coming of the summer with a winter-y reminder of why it's special. This shot is from February, deep in winter, where going out shooting stars meant frosty, frozen landscapes and 5 layers of insulated puffy pants, jackets and gloves. 

I encourage you all to get out under a summer, starry night and take in the beauty of the expansive sky. Bring a friend, that special someone, a blanket and a bottle of wine or a couple beers. Take in the endless stretch of the world beyond our "jar" rim. Make wishes on shooting stars, talk big talk and challenge your current limits, stand up and spin in circles till you are dizzy and the stars are a whirling blur. Be young! Go nuts. Be silly.

Damnit. It never fails. EVERY time I wonder "should I go out to shoot stars" and I do go- I end up not regretting it. This should be good news- I know. But, it's difficult some days to get the gumption or inspiration to go out and shoot. Part of me just wants to get a good night's sleep and enjoy a normal weekend; but the other part knows there's a chance of the clouds opening up and stars coming out- so, I should go. 
So, I went. And I'm glad I did. It was beautiful. Mt Hood, reflected in Lost Lake. Stars and Milky Way shrouding the entire scene. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. 

Alright folks, Happy Monday.

Beautiful overlook above Bishop, CA. Anyone been up here? It was a little white knuckle crawling up the steep dirt road in the dark! This is from my +Land Rover USA trip a couple months back. 
One thing I love to do is get out of town and find a spot away from the lights to look up at the stars. It was cool being up here for a couple hours looking down on the small car lights moving around. I get a real peace in these places. 

Anyone notice photo comments are being streamed through the Gmail interface? Wow! I LOVE this feature. +Google+ Photos  comments are so much easier to reply and interact with. Good job to the team coming up with these innovations and work throughs. 

Alright- happy friday everyone!

This is one of the more challenging images to shoot on the road trip photo shoot with the LR4 Rover. I didn't sleep much, since I was focusing on night photography, but the few hours I did get- I passed out in the back of the rig. I was amazed at how visible the outdoors are through all the windows, moon roofs and sun roof.  So, around 4am one night, before passing out, I did my best to catch the view of the stars while looking up. Laying in the back is incredibly comfortable!

Land Rover is starting to share the images from my road trip with the LR4, so I'm going to be posting them as they come out. I had such a blast on this trip/job. Rover was fantastic in giving me creative freedom to do my thing which inspired me to be all the more creative. This is one of my favorites from the night shots. laughing I didn't get much sleep between shooting day/night and driving between locations. It was an awesome runout :-)  

I highly encourage you to click on it and see it in the dark view. Cheers and clear skies. http://www.landrover.com/us/en/lr/lr4/

This evening was incredible. I was running and slipping on the ridge here trying to get in a couple shots before the approaching dawn light washed the stars out. Let me tell you- down booties don't give the best traction in icy snow! laughing 

About 15 minutes later this big Lenticular was gone. To my memory- this is the first time in the 4 yrs I've been shooting stars that I've seen a Lenticular cloud at night. What made it particularly special, is the light from Government Camp below shone directly onto it, lighting it up like the screen on a drive in movie theater. 
Light pollution is both a terrible and fascinating thing. 

Props to Hilleberg the Tentmaker for the performance of their Tarra tent. That thing is a bomb shelter.

Leaves are changing, nights are getting colder and the mountains are starting to get snow. Star gazing in the winter is a daunting thing being out in the cold, but it comes with the advantages of night beginning relatively early and the cold air holds less humidity which means a clearer view of the night sky through our atmosphere. This shot was taken a few miles in on a multi-mile cross country ski backpack trip. This spot more so than anywhere else had a big opening in the forest around me and I was shocked at how bright the moon light was on the snow around me. It was beautiful :-)
The forest was silent except for the occasional muffled "fhwump" of snow clumps falling off the tree branches. I was warm, even sweaty, from skiing with my backpack- so the break of taking the picture was not cold at all.

The forest was silent except for the occasional muffled "fhwump" of snow clumps falling off the tree branches. I was warm, even sweaty, from skiing with my backpack- so the break of taking the picture was not cold at all. The few times I checked my map to gauge the distance to camp- the moonlight was enough to see the details. The stars beamed and sparkled in the crisp, cold air and the moonlight was mesmerizing, even energizing. I literally felt like a moth being drawn to a porch light.The moment and place was magic. Ironically, this shot was not the goal of the adventure, but is the best image from the trip. It's proof and reminder to enjoy the moments that come up and give them their due attention.
Note to fellow photographers doing night shots- spend time searching out for the composition that finally feels right- it's time well spent. I have about ten shots before this that have no life or interest, even though they're from this spot. While in the location- keep trying new angles and scenes until it feels right. 

As winter sets in I encourage you to consider going out stargazing. The early dark means you don't have to be out so late and the air is so clear that the stars literally sparkle. But, first, a warning- dress as warm as you can and bring a thermos of something hot to drink. Cold is cold, but laying on the ground staying still makes cold even colder. Bring puffy jackets, snow pants, a hat, even gloves and I promise you your star gazing experience will be all the more enjoyable.

Cheers and clear skies :-)___

Time for a new image! This is a totally different look for me, but it's grabbed me deep inside since it first showed up on the back of my camera. 
It's different for me because usually I am looking for things to ADD into the frame, not shoot with an empty landscape. But, at the top of South Sister, in a snow-filled crater there was literally nothing around! So, I tried some shots out and then was amazed to discover I loved the emptiness of it. Oh, and this is ISO 8000 on the new 1Dx! 

New "style" for me, but I like it. I'm not finished processing it, but I really wanted to get a version up online for you to see.
What do you think?

Also, in case you missed it- on the same night I shot this, we did a 1Dx vs 5D3 shoot off for the best Canon star shooting camera. Sample images, notes, and winner is shown here in this blog:more »

Finally! Some clarity on whether the new Canon 1Dx or 5D3 is the best night DSLR camera. 
We took both (and the 5D2 and 1D4) out and worked through the ISO's to see which camera handles the High ISO's the best.

Canon 1Dx, ISO 8000!
Our weekend climb of the South Sister and testing of the new Canon 1Dx and 5D3 went incredibly well! 
I got my ass kicked, but found some beautiful new angles on Oregon's amazing Cascade mountains. 
I'll be posting head-to-head results of the 1Dx and 5D3 in the next day or two, so look for that. 
This is John up on the summit, enjoying his 10,358 ft view.

Yes! +Uncage the Soul Video Productions  has finally gotten our brand new Canon 1Dx, so we've got a Canon 5d3 from rental, and we're taking them out head to head to find out who's the best Landscape Astrophotographer! 
We'll also bring a 5d2 and 1D4. 
Should be really cool to see what WAS possible and what now IS possible. 
We're climbing and camping at the summit of South Sister in Oregon (elevation 10k+), weather is forecasted for clear skies, Moon is barely in the sky- so expect some epic star shooting conditions. 
Any guesses/predictions which one will win???

Usually I avoid shooting when the moon is bright and prominent, but I was out with friends camping- so I made the best of it. Turned out to be a sweet accent light! The moon is heading back down to that interesting 3/4 - 1/2 phase. I encourage you to get out and try some moonlit night shots.

*Clouds leaving, Stars showing up!* 
Finally things are clearing up here in the Pacific Northwest. This is a shot from a spur of the moment camping trip with some friends. 

The Moon was beaming bright with about 3/5 illumination, giving a perfect "Rembrandt" light at an angle behind us. Usually I run away from bright moonlight when shooting stars, but it certainly does have it's advantages when used right. I love when the Moon cooperates ;-) 

This is a good example of when I will expose long on the stars to get more illumination in the landscape. If you check out the stars you'll see they're tracking just a little bit. But, to me, that's a point I'll concede to give more detail to view and explore in the foreground. 

This is one of my new favorite camping spots!

I'm getting a lot of comments about Canon's new 60DA release today. If you haven't heard- it's a 60D modified to hone in on the more obscure light wavelengths of galaxies and nebula and other sorts of starry beauty. I don't know enough about the telescope-astronomy to understand all the aspects of Hydrogen-Alpha sensitivity- but I'm going to make an ignorant and unfounded GUESS that this will not dramatically effect "Landscape Astrophotography" because we're not zooming into galactic clouds like telescope astronomers. However, I do wonder how the Milky Way cloud would look via this modified sensor.

Keep in mind, currently, a major obstacle or opportunity for shooting stars and landscapes is the camera's ISO abilities. That being said, the 60D is not a front runner of High ISO technological breakthroughs. So, that leads me to think this modification is... more »

Keep in mind, currently, a major obstacle or opportunity for shooting stars and landscapes is the camera's ISO abilities. That being said, the 60D is not a front runner of High ISO technological breakthroughs. So, that leads me to think this modification is meant to compliment astronomers that are putting the camera on a motorized mount that tracks the night sky via LOW and clean ISO's and very long exposures (longer than 30 seconds). This motorized mount makes for great deep space images, but terrible landscape and star images because the motion of following the stars blurs out the landscape in front.

If this modification was coming out on the new Canon 5d3- then THAT would be something to get all stirred up over for us Landscape Astrophotographers.

Again, I don't claim to know this based on scientific knowledge or research- it's merely my experience and guestimation. Anyone have know how to the contrary?

**Blue Lagoon with galaxies overhead**
Welcome back to Turtle Island!
As they say in Fiji, "Bula :-)"
Welcome and hello to a view of the stars, Milky Way, and Magellanid Galaxy in the Southern Hemisphere.

You are looking at Turtle Island's Blue Lagoon. Come on in, the water's warm. Thunderstorms move through and recycle the day's air making everything fresh and new. As the storms passes, stars emerge through the clouds eager to shine. The warm waters of the Blue Lagoon remain still as they reflect the beauty of the night sky with envy.

In the shadowed darkness, fish noisily jump up and out of the water chasing or being chased. A warm, gentle breeze occasionally stirs up, rustling the palm leaves above and behind. In the air, the sweet smell of Hibiscus blossoms cover everything.

**HDR is coming, not going**
I'm just going to say it now- HDR is not going away.
For those of you abhorred by it- it WILL become integrated into normal photography WITHIN the camera and be seen simply as normal photography. Not just quirky off shoots of third parties or small point and shoots- I'm talking the two big boys Canon and Nikon also.
**It's just a matter of time. **

Canon Rumors released this new rumored spec sheet for the upcoming Canon 5d Mk III, and halfway down in the list is "High Dynamic Range (HDR) Mode."
Whether it really happens now in the Canon line up with the 5d III or later in some future professional model- IMO, it's inevitable, and I'll put myself in the cross-hairs for some- it is necessary that it does happen.

In the evolution of photography, "Digital" is no longer progressive- it simply IS. Now that we've made acceptance, we're excitedly embracing and exploring the potential of what is now possible and COULD BE possible with digital photography since leaving behind film photography.

High ISO is probably the largest leap and bound we gained from digital photography, as of yet. It has literally made all sorts of things once impossible- now not just "possible" but possible with clean, usable images. With this progression, we will pick up cool things like untethered smart phone camera controlling (inevitable), and we'll get higher resolution (36MP NIKON!!?), LCD screens will get bigger, sharper and better clarity in full daylight, and more. All of these things are fun- but the true "progression" will be with extension of the dynamic range. At some point, a camera will take a picture and in it's digital file will be the entire dynamic range our eyesight is capable of. Granted, it will be up to us to "translate" that info in our post processing, but I have no doubt my not-yet-conceived children will have cameras with this ability.

That will come through more powerful and innovative censors, but I think the shortcut to get there sooner is in camera bracketing and in camera HDR merging to 32 bit or 64 bit files. We all freaked out over the Lytro camera with ability to capture entire focus range in one file, that's part of it, but I think the priority before that is complete dynamic range. HDR is paving the way there.

In 2008, this image below was blogged as a "Fantastic HDR Image!" it has 459K views on Flickr, and I think it's horrendous. These days are gone. Coming, are the days when you won't know it's "HDR" and won't call it HDR. It'll just be an insanely good picture.

Imagine a new photo/viewing technology where a viewing screen could track your eyes to know where on the screen you were looking.

Then, imagine an image file that contained complete focus range and exposure range.

Now imagine those two combining so that as you looked at a picture, the focus and exposure would adjust to exactly where in the image you were looking.

Apply something like that to a virtual tour in a video...

Possibly the first ever?

So, back to +Ron Garan . In the video chat, I discovered that he's been shooting these time lapses in outer space in orbit on the International Space Station, IN HIS "FREE TIME" !! That simply floored me.
I don't know much about being an astronaut, but considering how expensive it is to get a person in space- I am very certain that astronauts are not given much "free time" to putz around with personal projects while up in space! I do NOT imagine this scenario playing out:

Ron in space to Ground Control: Hey guys, so what do we have scheduled for today?

NASA Ground Control: Oh hey Ron, good morning. yawn Well, we've been pretty busy catching up on paperwork down here, so...oh crap! Just spilled coffee all over my keyboard... well... we really didn't get a chance to schedule any tasks for you today. Uhm... do you think you can find something to do? You know, any portals need lug nut tightening or something? It's embarrassing, but it's important we have something to fill in down here for your daily task list to keep the tax payers happy. So, anything you can come up with would be great....

Ron to Ground Control: Ah shoot. Ok. Yeah, no problem. I've actually had some pics I wanted to take since being up here, so maybe I can work on that today?

NASA: Yeah! Pics would be great! Did you bring your iPhone with you? Make sure you tag us in the shots. You know, social media is hot stuff right now.


YEEAAAHH RIGHT!
So, Ron's been taking these incredible time lapses on his little time off. The shots he's gotten are from his personal interest and passion to capture and convey the experience of being in space. To me, that's incredible and inspiring. His effort and creative vision is frikkin awesome.
+Ron Garan, my cold, sleepless starry night shot of the igloo is dedicated to you. Thank you for sharing a monumental achievement in night photography.

I ALMOST missed the video hangout because of this trip and igloo. Hangout started at 7pm, and I got back from the trip and 3 hour drive at 6:35pm!___

It got me all psyched up to stop what I was doing and work on processing this one.
It's a frame from an HDR Timelapse.

TSA Surprise- NO Lithium batteries in checked luggage!

Heads up Photographers and HDSLR video folks- on a recent job to Fiji, my coworker and I packed our DSLR batteries in our checked luggage. When we got to the job site (a remote island) we discovered our 13 DSLR batteries had been removed from our checked Pelican cases! Job was almost torpedo'd by this, but fortunately we had one battery in each camera that we had on carry on, so we weren't completely sunk.

But, beware- the rule is you have to carry-on those batteries on flights. Evidently they are a fire hazard. Take note and skip the surprise on your next travel shoot!

I made some new friends this weekend :-)
Got to introduce +Karen Hutton to some pretty places outside of Portland, and then had the added pleasure of meeting +Brian Matiash, a relative newcomer to Portland, but already becoming a seasoned veteran to the best landscape spots in the area.

It was fun. Actually, a lot of fun.
We laughed, got soaked by waterfall spray, I WAS blown off my feet by ripping winds, and even managed to take a few pictures in the process. It's amazing the connections you can make through the online communities. We knew all three of us enjoyed photography, but, it was a nice surprise to discover we also liked each other and immediately found a relaxed comfort and shared humor as a group. That's something that doesn't happen every time :-)

Got to introduce +Karen Hutton to some pretty places outside of Portland, and then had the added pleasure of meeting +Brian Matiash, a relative newcomer to Portland, but already becoming a seasoned veteran to the best landscape spots in the area.

It was fun. Actually, a lot of fun.
We laughed, got soaked by waterfall spray, I WAS blown off my feet by ripping winds, and even managed to take a few pictures in the process. It's amazing the connections you can make through the online communities. We knew all three of us enjoyed photography, but, it was a nice surprise to discover we also liked each other and immediately found a relaxed comfort and shared humor as a group. That's something that doesn't happen every time :-)

I'm really excited to show Brian just how big of a Photographer's Paradise he's moved out to!

This is the Vista House up at Crown Point, in the Columbia Gorge in Oregon. Wind up here was WHIPPING. My tripod was blown over (Brian yelled out before the camera nosed dived), but at one point I watched in shock as my full camera bag started to get moved across the grass by the wind!! I had intentions of doing a time-lapse, but I could barely pull off holding the camera still for bracketing.

By the end of sunset, we were hurriedly escaping to the safety of the car.___

Romantic dinner on the dock, under the stars, moonlight and lanterns at Turtle Island, Fiji on New Years Day. Does it get better??...

(amazingly, the bright light in the left side of the sky is NOT the moon, from what I can research, I think it's Venus! )

Anyone know how to do "Light Painting" in a video? Not a photo- but, record the path of the light and have it stay in the video. Preferably, looking to do it in After Effects.
Like this:
Light Painting - Light Graffiti - Ford Kuga (Table)

Somewhere around Night 6 on Turtle Island we realized we had to setup and shoot night time lapses regardless of the weather and expect clouds to come and go.

That mindset had us shooting when this scene unfolded. A gorgeous, clear Milky Way night turned into an atmospheric showdown. Easterly winds seemingly summoned by the galactic band pushed mightily against the thundering and flashing South Pacifc storm. The battle raged back and forth with an uncertain outcome until finally the stars relented and the boiling storm overcame the night sky.

It was amazing :-)
Milky Way over Blue Lagoon, Lightning flashes over distant Fijian island, seaplane anchored- waiting out the weather, another night at Turtle Island.

Weather outright SUCKS in Portland this week. Rain, ice, slush and drab clouds over it all. I came into work with one thought in mind: MUST. SEE. SUNNY. TURTLE ISLAND. PICTURES!

At Uncage the Soul Productions, we'll be processing and compiling a new promotional video for Turtle Island over the next few months. I'll post some "visual vacations" to the island as I work through the 2 TB of media.

This was shot about 20 minutes before dinner was served. Absolutely incredible. Five star food on the beach while the sky explodes with color- and all with my toes in warm sand. Turtle Island exists in another dimension! The community dinner table is a surprising twist for a high-end, exclusive island resort. I'm not one for celebrity worship, but it's a cool fact that you may be scooting in your dinner chair next to a face that's usually on the cover of celebrity... more »

I'm not one for celebrity worship, but it's a cool fact that you may be scooting in your dinner chair next to a face that's usually on the cover of celebrity magazines. But at the dinner table, it doesn't matter. Status exclusion blows away with the warm breeze.

The website will be getting a facelift, but you can still find more info here:

Here's some BTS from a morning sunrise shoot out by Fiji.
My work partner, John Waller, is running a video of the sun eventually peaking over the horizon.
The sunrise was a stunner, but we also had a moment where we realized just how ridiculous we've obsessed over "capturing" the moment to our digital media. John is recording a video and taking a picture of his camera, while I take a picture of him taking a picture of him recording a video.
....we have lost touch with reality! laughing

The amount of powerful and dynamically useful technology that exists is staggering now. Our equipment is a fraction of the amount of gear necessary in the past, and its abilities are incredibly mutil-faceted. One camera shot marketing stills, HD video, Milky Way night shots, and even multi-hour timelapses.

But, to really blow the mind, all I do is reach in my pocket and pull out my Iphone. In our lifetime, we've been privy to a front seat of incredible technological advancements, but now so many of them are happening not only in our lifetime, but in our personal lives. A piece of equipment SMALLER than a calculator makes phone calls, accesses the web, captures photos, videos, timelapses, even HDR photos! And the list goes on as we all know. I have no clue where this will all lead, but evidently I'm no longer watching front seat, but am buckled in front row of this rollercoaster ride.___

Holy cow. What a crazy start to the year.
Out of left field a job to do a promotional video for an exclusive resort island off the coast of Fiji came up just before Christmas, and bing-bang-boom, I had to cut short my trip home with family to dash back to Portland and gear up for 10 days out in Fiji!!!
Just got back with 2 TB of video, pics and timelapse and am so damn excited to start processing it all!
Sorry I couldn't update you all, but signal was scarce out there and my partner and I literally worked night and day recording as much beauty as we could manage.
We rang in New Years Eve on the beach with Fijian costumed warrior performers "storming" the beach and performing some fun song and dance. Then, after a few drinks and well wishes, we dashed to the other side of the island, setup a sweet 3 axis astro timelapse with this palm tree, whisked back to bed for an... more »

9 days of that kind of madness.
