Gailen Mapes62,503Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  T-V - 12 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-04-12 10:46:28122219CC G+

Gene Bowker66,115 The   #Alphabetcircles   Gene's Active Photographers on G+ Part Two: First Name D-GMeet 250+ more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names betweenD and G.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notNot in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.Feel free to reshare with your friends if you want, but there are NO requirements to be in this circle except for the criteria above.I'm slowly going through the rest of the Alphabet and as I complete each section I'll be sharing them in this series.  If you follow along you can easily add 1000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images Part One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBz2014-03-12 11:15:49268881774CC G+

Ralf Skirr14,917The How To Get Started With Shared Circles V2 Circle! Lots of people re-share other people’s shared circle by simply clicking the share button on the circle post. THIS circle is a starting point and a short introduction into creating your OWN shared circles.Just Published - My EPIC Circles Tutorial.5,000 Words. 29,000 Pixels long. Check it out:http://ralfskirr.com/google-plus-circles-tutorial-for-businessFor The Critics: Did you bother to take a look? This is an excellent circle that I've put together over 6 weeks. When you add these people to your circles you'll get an amazing variety of interesting, entertaining, and educational content. From G+ gurus as well as from people with only a few dozen followers but amazing profiles.Back to How-to-get-started...Of course, if you don't feel like creating your own circle, you can simply share the traditional way: 1. Click the share button below and share. 2. Plus one this post. 3. Comment on this post. [Will add you to my upcoming engagers circle.]Quick start steps for creating your own shared circle:Create the new circle1. In the circle below click ‘Add people.’ A popup will open where you can create a new circle.2. Type a new name for your new circle, and click the button ‘Create [name of your circle] circle.’ You will now have a new circle with the 450 people from the circle I created. Google sends you to the circle page in your browser. From there you can share right away:How to share your new circleIf you want to share the 450 people circle without adding more people:1. From the circle page, click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.2. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’3. Add a comment.4. Click ‘Share.’If you want to add people to the circle before sharing:Simply visit your circles or your stream and hover over the names from people you like to add and add them to your new circle like you always add people to circles: by checking the box with the circle name.To share the circle after you've added your own people:1. Place your cursor in the top left corner for the Google+ main menu. Click ‘People. ‘2. Click ‘Your circles.  ‘3. Select the circle that you’d like to share. 4. Click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.5. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’6. Add a comment.’7. Click ‘Share.’Before you share a circle, you might want to get an idea who is actually in this circle!What's NOT in this circle:No spammers. No offensive content. No inactive people.Who I've added:- I've put a lot of time into finding interesting people. Not all 450, but lots of people who are active posters, posting a variety of topics on g+. - An even smaller [than last time] pinch of 'the usual suspects,' i.e. people active in circle sharing.- A few people who have helped me to grow my following, i.e. who have RECENTLY included me in their shared circles. Including them here is a THANK YOU for their support!AND A SPECIAL SHOUTOUT for the amazing admins of our community BLOGGERS OF GOOGLE PLUS+Julie DeNeen +elizabeth obih-frank 2014-03-04 16:51:4545012590129CC G+
Jean-François Durocher3,158I've never shared any circle but I'll try it today. This circle is on that I built over the last month or so of interesting people on G+. Some are popular some are less but I think it's a good idea to give them all a try and see what they can bring to your Google+ experience.Thanks guys for this cool G+ experience. #engagers   #circles   #circle  2014-03-03 20:50:551865312CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-05 16:07:314714431110CC 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+

Achievement Unlocked: Have your photo displayed on the Nasdaq Billboard in Times Square for Earth Day!

Sorry for the self-indulgent post, everyone - this is just so cool for me, I had to share.

I received this image this morning from a friend on our Google+ Partners team, letting me know that a selection of my photos that were used by Google+ and +TIME to celebrate #MyBeautifulEarth  are being displayed on the gigantic and famous Nasdaq billboard in Times Square, New York City! This is profoundly sentimental for me on several fronts. It's really an honor for me to have some of my photos selected by Time editors to be displayed in this fashion, in the very heart of the city where I was born and raised in... it is extremely sentimental. I am a devout reader of +TIME Magazine and their Lightbox section easily showcases some of the best and most moving photos everca... more »

Taken with my +Nexus  5, and edited right here on +Google+ Photos  My little egg heads. Today they'll get their hair styled and be sent out into the world. As you can see the middle on was just born last night. She's got a little time before she's ready to leave home. 

The bottom rings were made with art clay that you bake to cure, and the eggs were cut with a Dremmel tool. Quite easy. Used Scotts Grass seed, and +Sharpie  pens to complete the look. Happy little eggs for a happy little Easter! #eastercrafts #easteregg

Blood Red Moon Lunar Eclipse Sequence
This is the first of several lunar eclipse sequences I shot earlier this week. They are difficult to assemble with the moon in exactly the proper place in the sky throughout the entire eclipse, but I am finally done with this first one.

Lunar Eclipse Over Donner Peak

Here's my eclipse sequence composite that I photographed a couple of nights ago. This is what I had in mind when I set out to shoot the eclipse (though the Donner Summit location was a last minute decision) and I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. I'm working on a more detailed description of the planning and process that will be available next week.

Enjoy and please feel free to share!

In California, all the 4th graders are required to do a report on a Mission. We went up to San Juan Capistrano so my daughter could check out her assigned mission. She was intrigued to learn that they were never attacked by natives, however, they were attacked by a pirate. Pirate Hippolyte de Bouchard. He was called Pirata Buchar... Hmmm. Somehow, I think Pirate Hippo would be a better name. THAT would make for a fun report to illustrate. But a trip to the mission would be more fun if +David Hasselhoff was there, don't you think?

So, yesterday my kids came up to me with a broken tape dispenser. The tape dispenser I bought as a teenager with my babysitting money. It reminded me of tropical beaches. It was a light clear sea-foam green with sandy tan sand inside. I'd never been to a tropical beach, and I got a smile on my face whenever I used it. Now it is cracked and leaking sand. Time to shop for a new one. So on the hunt, I've discovered a world of tape dispensers. From high heels, to cocktails, to football helmets, and my personal favorite  a frog catching a bug... However. Then I found this. I'm hesitant on buying it, as I'm waiting for the solid gold model to come out. I think it will be worth the wait, and can't cost much more? What do you think?

Today, I've been editing photos. It was a fantastic wedding. The problem? TOO many great photos. It can be overwhelming. Splitting it up, and taking it one photo at a time. I feel like my bride!

I've been having fun editing the last wedding I shot. I found this image in a set I took of the bride up in the choir loft. She had just received her flowers from her Maid of Honor, and was anxiously waiting for the ceremony to start...  It was pretty dark up in the loft, minus a giant stained glass window behind her right shoulder. I decided that because of the lower light levels, and where the light was coming from to fill with some flash that was bounced off the creamy loft walls. 

I was standing on a chair, and she was sitting. My settings, for those who are learning how to find the right balance (remember, this is just my recipe at this time, as there are tons of choices that would work, and some maybe better) was 1/200 (to stop camera shake, motion blur), F/3.2 to let there be some softness falling off behind, but not too much so that her face and flowers remained sharp and ISO 1600#... more »

The inaugural run of the paper sail boat. It went for a calm sail in the puddle in the yard until the dad decided it was time for it to take the test... Would it survive the rapids? It did for about 10 runs. Having fun in Rainy San Diego.

The storm has finally hit us here in San Diego. These rocks are at least a foot across and falling off the mountain. This is on the road my kids walk to and from school on. We drove today.

Thank you +Vi Hart. My daughter was playing in math class. But instead of learning a lesson, the teacher loved the hexaflexigon, and posted the link for the whole class and is bringing one home for her son. However, she still got the violation. My question is, should we fold it before turning it in?

I now get it. I now really do. I know why +Joe McNally  is the success he is. I just borrowed this book from the library, and every time I open it, no matter where I open it, I'm just in love. The humor, the way he explains things, the way he does it through stories. Joe McNally is right up my alley. I can't wait to devour this book as well as everything else he has written. Maybe we speak the same language. I GET him. I'm not getting paid for this endorsement, heck, not even an affiliate link. So know this is unbiased. Get this book, borrow this book, steal if off a friend's shelf. But, read it. I love it.

The rain is coming! The rain is coming! I don't think we'll be quite this underwater, but we sure could use a good storm around here. It's been so long that is a cause for celebration.

Today, we went to San Juan Capistrano, California to the Mission with some friends. I think the best part for my daughter was building an arch, and watching as she removed the supports, and it stayed up. She was one happy and proud girl. It is wonderful being around to watch the girls grow and learn. This is one of those moments as a parent I won't forget. Her joy is such a gift. I always say I want to shoot joy. I nailed it today.

So, yesterday, I posted that I had a nightmare. Every night I have a nightmare as I am waking up. (Maybe it is a hint that I should get up earlier?) Last nights was photography related as well (They aren't always). This nightmare was that I was at a $1,000 a plate gala that I'm going to be shooting next month, and my 2nd shooter sits down at the table and, then starts picking food off people's plates! Oh. The horror! But a good horror story does go better with a photo, and here is one that I took last week of the cutest veggie sculpture I've ever seen. I'm also relaxed in knowing that my 2nd shooters would never in a million years do that! Thank God!

Every morning, just as I am waking up, I have a nightmare. Each one is different. This morning's was that I was trying to capture a group shot at a wedding, but the people wouldn't stay where I placed them. Finally, exasperated, I announced, "I once shot a large litter of kittens, and had all 6 of them facing the camera without the aid of Photoshop. THEY were easier than you!" I woke up from my dream without capturing that shot for them. Sigh. You can't win them all.

Are you paying for Facebook likes? Then there is a Youtube clip you absolutely have to watch. To the end. And then let it sink in. Yes, we've all been had.

Thinking my 10 year old daughter should go into advertising. She wants to be a cartoonist. I'm thinking some sort of writing does suit her. Fun to see what she came up with for our vintage party a few weeks ago with the instructions, "I need a fun slogan for a basket for us to stick our cell phones in". Yes, all kids are special, but this one always amazes me. She is never boring, and I love her creativity.

While it isn't the "perfect" camping night shot... We've got our cars, our tent is wrinkled... yada, yada... It is absolutely perfect to me. My three precious babies are sleeping in the tent, happy as can be with a little light keeping them comfortable. What a wonderful trip we took. They want to go every weekend now. I'm still unpacking.

Sunrise that was beautiful, but I wasn't able to capture it to its full glory. I was talking to +Aaron Wood about it... This is overlooking the Salton Sea. WAY off into the distance.

A Peaceful Morning in the Badlands of San Diego

We went camping out in Anza Borrego last weekend. I was excited to try some astrophotography, and have my hand at some landscape work. The sunset was "ehh" but, I was eagerly awaiting the sunrise. Starting at 4, I was tossing and turning. Come 6, I realized the light was really starting to warm up the sky. I jumped from my tent, grabbed my gear, and started running. (My keys were under my husband's pillow oops!) I ran a mile up the hill carrying my camera backpack, a monopod, and my Ugg boots. Yes, I wasn't quite thinking when I took off, but I new I wanted to get up there. I kept hoping as I was running that I'd make it in time. The sky looked like it was on fire. I did make it. I made it to the top. The glow from the sky was intense. Looking towards the rising sun over the Salton Sea. It was beautiful, but not much more than... more »

Last night I was on +The Photoshop Show hosted by +Jan Kabili and +Ron Clifford. We had some amazing panelists, +Seán Duggan and  +Gene McCullagh. Our guest was +Glyn Dewis. If you aren't following him, watching his tutorials, and learning from him, you're  missing out. He taught some great tricks for my Photoshop arsenal. But... Something came up...Sean pulled up his adorable puppy... And it was said by Ron, cute always wins over creativity... I piped in... That is why I always do so well... There was an uncomfortable silence and chuckle by the men... (It was at 30 minutes in...) When I first started in on Goolge+, I think it was +Barry Blanchard, but I could be wrong? Did weekly themes, we called it some sort of Poker? You'd pull up images that fit the themes. Sometimes it would be roads, sometimes it would be water. Once it was mountains... I'd pull up a photo like the one below.And a... more »

Yes, the light was THIS warm. 

Vista Del Malpais, Anza Borrego, San Diego this past weekend at sunrise. 

The sunrise was beautiful, such a warm light. Of course, it changed quickly and the shadows became even harsh 10 minutes after the sun came over the horizon. What a wonderful morning.

Critique Please

I shot this at 4 sec, F1.4, ISO 1600 at 35mm

What could I have done better? I'm learning about wide field astrophotography. 

Any advice for this newbie?

I watched +The Photoshop Show last week with +Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn  and +Darryl Van Gaal, hosted by +Ron Clifford  and +Jan Kabili  with +Dave Bell there for his great smile and deep voice (Don't let the engineer thing fool you).... 

The Photoshop Show 50 with Guest Kerry Ann Lecky Hepburn

Regardless, it was on Astrophotography, and Kerry excited me to try my hand at Astrophotography. This is an image of Jupiter and its 4 moons. My first shot from a telescope. 

Yes, it looks like a first attempt, but it was really fun!
