Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721023719CC G+

Gailen Mapes60,985Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  L - 18 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 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 Mapes2014-03-18 10:24:3761404CC 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+

Gailen Mapes58,376Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera L - 18 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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 Mapes2014-01-18 11:58:0663317CC G+

The City Of Lights || Paris

From the top of Montparnasse Tower, the sky above Paris explodes with vivid color and light… 

I often say that there are certain places in the world that have the power to take my breath away. On my first visit to Paris last fall, the city exceeded all of my expectations and left me with a strong desire for more. I would even go as far to say that the city of lights could quite possibly be the best city in the world for travel photography. I know that's high praise but from my perspective, with the wealth of possibilities for strong and beautiful compositions and the diversity of subject matter, it could definitely be true. 

This was shot in August 2013 from the top of Montparnasse Tower on a very hazy and grey day. With less than favorable conditions, I wasn’t expecting much for sunset but when this sky appeared out of the grey,I was... more »

The Moments Between || Beautiful Mt. Fuji

What could be better than shooting Mt. Fuji floating on full blooming cherry blossoms during a beautiful sunrise? How about getting to spend that time in good company with +Naomi Locardi and +Yuga Kurita! 

After a groggy 2:30AM wake up call, we made our way up to this beautiful location to enjoy the view. Armed with a half dozen cans of boss coffee, we watched the light reveal a lovely scene before us. That’s 1 morning down and 3 more to go as we wait for the cherry blossoms to reach their 100% peak. 

Wish us luck, and coffee, definitely lots of coffee! :D

On The Edge Of Reality

This image is a composite of the foreground shot and 185 frames of the sky. These photos were taken with different cameras/lenses at different locations about a year apart. I stacked the frames of a Milky Way time lapse to make a standard star trails image and then masked in a single frame of the Milky Way using a blending method that I've been working on for a while.

Pulse || Kuala Lumpur

Once upon a time in vibrant Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, the sunset sky transformed into a beautiful collection of interesting shapes and colors... 

I must’ve done something to please the weather gods during our visit to KL because every shooting location seemed to greet us with the perfect conditions for photography. I’ve been blessed with many epic skies over the last few years but I’ve never experienced so many in a row. Day after day, we were never disappointed. It was absolutely extraordinary.

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be leading an Iceland Photo Tour this September with my good friends +Patrick Di Fruscia and +Ken Kaminesky! 

September is a beautiful month to be in Iceland and with long 15 hour days, there’s plenty of daylight to capture Iceland’s wild and diverse landscapes. If we’re lucky, we may also have the chance to see some amazing solar storm activity! Fingers crossed for the Northern Lights. :)

The Moments Between || Shooting Tokyo

It’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to shoot Tokyo again and I must say that this time, the experience is made even better with good friends and FujiFilm Cameras! 

Sunday, we spent the afternoon shooting the annual fertility festival and if you’re curious what exactly that is, it’s well worth googling. Let’s just say that Google+ might not be happy if I posted some of the resulting images publicly. ;)

It was also cool to get to test out the new +Fujifilm X-T1 with the Fujinon XF 56mm 1.2 lens. We've been working with the X-T1 since Osaka last week and so far I’m very impressed with the extremely solid and intuitive design. Expect to hear more about that soon!

The Moments Between || Osaka - New and Old

We had such a lovely sunset while we were shooting in Osaka last night and as luck would have it, we were in the perfect place to capture the beautiful old castle against the modern city skyline. Thankfully, I also had 2 of my +Really Right Stuff Safari clamps with me because apparently tripods are not allowed in here. Without them, +Ken Kaminesky and I wouldn’t have been able to get a shot from this awesome location. 

With such a shallow edge to bite into, it took a bit of time to tweak the clamp but once I found the sweet spot, it was rock solid and ready to go. In addition—and not pictured here—I also used a Lens Skirt to cover the glass area around the lens and mitigate nearly all of the reflections. While the over all setup was definitely a bit tricky to manage, I’m extremely pleased with the result!

Song Of The Sea || Vernazza

One of my favorite things about traveling is getting to experience, what I like to call, "the moment of discovery". It’s that special moment in time that can overwhelm the senses and generate palpable feelings of awe and wonder as a breathtaking scene unfolds before your eyes. In that singular moment, everything you’ve hoped to experience and see in a specific place is perfectly represented and frozen in front of you. The air, the sound, the colors, everything seems to coalesce into pure visual harmony. You’ll know you’ve reached it when the only word that comes to mind is wow… 

As a travel photographer, it's those moments of discovery that I’m constantly seeking. It’s also the reason that certain countries and regions, like Italy and Cinque Terre, capture my focus and attention again and again. For me, places likeVernazza repre... more »

The Moments Between || Osaka Castle Shootout! 

We timed our visit to Osaka this week to catch a few days of the annual castle light up event during the peak of the cherry blossom bloom. This is the first time we've been to Osaka castle and I must say that I’m extremely impressed. It’s incredibly beautiful, especially when it’s seen floating on top of thousands of cherry blossoms. 

Just for a bit of fun tonight, I decided to create a similar composition with both cameras so I run some post-processing tests. The Fuji X-E2 is incredibly sharp and I’ve been meaning to put it though its paces with a solid benchmark. I've been collecting a lot of images lately and hopefully, I’ll be able to share the results some time soon! :)

The Moments Between || Hiroshima Castle

Naomi and I had an excellent time yesterday afternoon as we walked along the river and explored the Hiroshima Castle grounds before settling in to capture this crystal clear blue hour view. With beautiful cherry blossoms well into their blooming stage here, Sakura season is in full effect. It’s a wonderful time to be in Japan. 

With Japanese castles to photograph, blooming cherry blossoms to enjoy, and an endless supply of delicious canned coffees to choose from, I can’t seem to stop smiling. Yes, I realize this is probably mostly due to a caffeine overdose but hey, I’ll take it! :D 

Also, as another side effect of the caffeine, I couldn’t resist posting some cherry blossom goodness to my Instagram feed:

The Sleeping Dragon || Guilin, China

Enter the Reed Flute Cave, one of Guilin, China’s oldest and most popular attractions. The natural limestone formations are illuminated by an array of colorful lights that give it a wild and otherworldly feel. Throughout the interior, there are 70 ink inscriptions that can be dated as far back as 792 AD in the Tang Dynasty. That means people have been visiting this cave since ancient times. Although, I’m fairly confident the colored lights are a more modern addition.

The Moments Between || Hiroshima Grand Torii

First of all, don't panic. Of course I'm not shooting with three cameras at once. The +Fujifilm X-E1 on the right tripod belongs to Naomi. ;)

Our cameras are closely huddled together because shortly before this behind the scenes image was captured, we were working to perfectly alight the setting sun within the center of the Torii Gate. I'm happy to say that it worked out quite well and I've already posted a quick Instagram version here: http://instagram.com/p/mDBgHEH5Dv/

Now it's time to bribe the weather gods for some clouds!

Here is take two on the Watchman in Zion. This is my preferred comp of the two but I held off on working on this one initially for two reasons. One, my buddy +Chris Lazzery  who was standing directly to my left here had just published an almost identical composition (pretty much unavoidable if you are going to shoot from the bridge). 

Two, there are definitely times where I will delay processing my favorite composition. Sometimes a little time and perspective lets you figure out exactly where you want to go with an image. In this case, I received a test print of the last photo I posted from Zion and decided it came out a little bit too unnatural for my tastes. Despite the fact that the cliffs were really blazing away in the moonlight I felt like a slightly more subtle processing treatment captures the feel of the night better in my eyes.

The Moments Between || The Bamboo Forest

Photography Fact #428: Two cameras are more fun than one inside the bamboo forest in Arashiama. 

Interestingly enough, the same fact also applies to the quantity of Boss Coffee Cans. In my case, the magic number was two as well. :)

Jokes aside, Naomi and I left our guesthouse at a groggy 5:00am to experience and photograph this enchanting location at sunrise. We’ve been here twice before and on both of those visits, the bamboo forest became way too crowded with foot traffic by 8:00am. This time, we had the whole place nearly all to ourselves until 9:30! Whether that’s rare or not, we made sure to take advantage of the awesome photography opportunity as we enjoying the soft creaking sounds, as the cool breeze gently swayed the bamboo stalks. 

Kyoto, thanks for being good to us once again.

The Moments Between || Kiyomizu-dera Hanatouro 

Every spring and fall in Kyoto there's a special week long event called Hanatouro. It's during this festival when you can capture many of the surrounding pagodas while they're illuminated for the nightly display. 

Conveniently enough, some of the temples including Kiyomizu-dera also have special extended hours which opens up the possibility of catching a beautiful sunset as well. Naomi and I decided to setup early and capture both. 

It feels great to be back in Japan! :D

End of the World

This is a classic view of the Neist Point (Rubha na h-Eist), the most westerly point on the Isle of Skye; Scotland. Neist Point was used as the dramatic setting for a number of scenes in famous movie Breaking The Waves directed by Lars von Trier that won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. It is also excellent place to look for whales, dolphins and basking sharks.

Along The Meguro River || Tokyo 

I’m excited to say that +Naomi Locardi and I have just arrived in Kyoto Japan to kick off five weeks of chasing the blooming cherry blossoms. :)

This will be our second Sakura season and I’m 100% confident that it will be far from the last. With every visit we seem to fall deeper in love with the wonderful Japanese culture, the fascinating cities, and the gorgeous countryside. I’m really looking forward to being back! 

Last year—on my short visit to Tokyo—I was fortunate to get the chance to spend a few hours wandering along the Meguro river, crossing all the little bridges, and searching for an area to set up my camera. With so many beautiful spots, it wasn't easy to choose but I eventually settled on the one you see here.

The Moments Between || The Sydney Skyline

What do you do if you only have 72 hours in Sydney to prepare for a 5 week visit to Japan? 

Well, in our case you buy 1.5kg of Lavazza Oro espresso from Coles, procrastinate on the remaining projects and preparations, and head out to Milsons Point at sunset for an beautiful sunset pano session with the FujiFilm Camera gear instead. Perfectly logical, right? 

This is a very short visit so my apologies to everyone for not having the time to catch up. The good news is that Naomi and I are making plans to be back again this winter for a longer stay. While we’re here though, we’ll do our best to soak up as much of this warm Aussie weather as possible. :)

There’s still one spot left on our Italy Photo Tour this May. Join us as we explore and photograph some of the most beautiful destinations in Italy, including this enchanting little town called Vernazza.  

Complete Tour Info: http://bit.ly/italy-phototour

This was taken on my very first visit to Cinque Terre back in May 2011 and I’ve been in love with this area ever since. As a photographer and traveler, there are few places in the world that are more captivatingly beautiful than these little Italian seaside towns. The entire region is an absolute joy to photograph.

The Moments Between || The old “using a Lens Skirt to mitigate reflections while shooting ultra wide angle through the glass on the 100th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center Building” trick… ;)

On a more serious note, while the lens skirt did an excellent job removing the interior reflections from the surface of the glass, there was nothing to be done about the thick layer of dust on the exterior window... Maybe next time I should use the old “call in the window washers the day before I plan to shoot from the 100th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center” trick. 

Yup, that should do it!

The Moments Between || Two Camera Fun on the Bund

Even though the shooting conditions were a bit flat here in Shanghai tonight, I still had a great time setting up my dual camera system from Huangpu Park on the Bund. 

Whenever I shoot in Chinese cities, I always feel like photography has become a spectator sport, as dozens of people stop to watch me set up my gear and configure my shot. Tonight, setting up two cameras seemed to double the attention, and when I pulled out a third camera to take this shot, let’s just say that there were a ton of friendly fascinated faces turned my way. I wonder if they approved, disapproved, or just thought I was plain nuts? I guess I’ll never know... ;)

The Heart of Santorini || Oia Greece

When people talk about the Greek Island of Santorini, they often say that it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. In my opinion, all of the positive things people say about this Aegean paradise are one hundred percent true. From the scenery, to the food and wine, to the wonderful attitudes of both the residents and visitors, Oia is simply spectacular from every angle. 

Though there are dozens of beautiful vantage points all over town, this is probably one of the most popular and iconic views that can be captured of Oia. It’s also the main viewing area where thousands of people gather every single night for the chance to witness a famous Santorini sunset. It’s a crowded area to say the least and once the sun dips below the horizon, the entire town joyously erupts into cheers and applause.

My #PlusOneCollectionIII  Selection - Fingerlings

I took this photo about 13 months ago and it still is one of my favorite that I've ever taken in my life. Silver Falls State Park in Oregon is an especially magical place and I can think of no better image that I'd want to have representing me in the third volume of the +Plus One Collection than this.

On a more important note, I really want to thank +Ivan Makarov, +Andy Lee and the rest of the team for all of the selfless hours put into bringing a 3rd annual volume of beautiful imagery taken by the very people who make this Google+ community so rich... all while helping to support a truly worthy cause. I'm honored to be a part of this endeavor.

The Valley of Fog || Meteora Greece

As the rain clears, thick fog rolls through the valley and past the sandstone spires and monasteries of beautiful Meteora Greece… 

This is one of my all time favorite photos and the complete story of how it was captured can be found here: http://bit.ly/Wgpbd4

Misty Melody || Post-processing Before And After

It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a Post-processing before and after comparison but I think this scene is a great example of how far I like to push the colors and contrast in my RAW files. 

Also, while I rarely replace skies in my photography, this was a shot where I felt it to be absolutely necessary. I shot in this location over the course of many days and on a few mornings I captured beautiful fog with clear skies and other times, I had zero fog and epic skies. This resulting image is a blend of 2 different days shooting in nearly the identical location and focal length. 

After some small tweaks in Adobe Camera Raw before import, I used hand painted masks in Photoshop to blend the two RAW files together. Once the blending was complete, I gradually built up the color contrast in specific areas until I feltthat ... more »

The Moments Between || Lake Wanaka

On the edge of Lake Wanaka, there stands a lone tree that grows just off the rocky shore. Over the years, I’ve seen dozens of phenomenal photographs of this location but now having experienced it in person, even the best photos seem to pale in comparison to actually being there. The quality of color and light when the sun rises here is simply exquisite, and even setting aside all things related to photography, I’m just happy I had the chance to start the day in this beautiful place.  

So with that, even though I’m sad to say that another visit to New Zealand is coming to an end today, I’m very happy that Naomi and I were able to explore and photograph a few new and beautiful locations. Thanks again New Zealand. Once again It’s was a pleasure to be here.

Misty Melody || Tuscany

While I’ll never be sure whether it’s possible for a photographer to capture the heart of a location, with the extent of my travels over the last few years, I’ve learned that it’s certainly possible for a location to capture the heart of a photographer. 

Tuscany is one of those locations that has truly captured my heart, and that’s not just the Chianti talking. There’s a longing to be there again - to wake up to the soft melody of the morning fog as it cradles the rolling hills and valleys creating a visual harmony of color, texture, and light. In this feeling also lives the desire to experience and photograph this landscape in every changing season, whether it takes months, years, decades, or a lifetime. Again, that’s not just because of the wine. ;)

The Moments Between || Last Night Under The Stars

We just wrapped up our last evening shooting in Lake Tekapo and while we only meant to stay for 3 nights, we ended up staying for 6 instead. We've just been having way too much fun admiring and photographing the beautiful night sky - something we haven't had the chance to do for quite a few months.

Our next stops are Lake Wanaka and Queentown, followed by Taipei, Shanghai, and Tokyo... But first, after staying up all night again, it's time for some sleep! :)

The Moments Between || Dual Camera Setup for the Milky Way

Yesterday, Naomi and I spent the entire evening from sunset to sunrise capturing stars and the milky way over The Church of The Good Shepherd. With the approaching new moon and a crystal clear atmosphere, the conditions allowed us to capture some amazing shots! :)  This photo was taken just before sunset as I was locking in my compositions. 

For the past few months I’ve been shooting with 2 cameras simultaneously by attaching a +Really Right Stuff Safari Clamp and BH-30 Ballhead to one of the legs of my TVC-33 Tripod. As a precaution, I also use a thick microfiber cloth to prevent any scratches or damage from cranking down and securing the clamp. It’s incredibly strong and once set up properly, it easily holds a second camera system with absolutely no sag. In this case, you can see it in action with my Fuji X-E2and 14... more »

I'm very excited to see my photo "Sleeping Giants" on the cover of Digital Camera Magazine! :)

Capturing this shot of Mount Bromo with these conditions was an elaborate process that involved weeks of planning, thousands of miles of traveling, four sleepless nights of shooting, countless cups of coffee, and many hours of careful post-processing. This project was one of those rare events in time when everything, including the weather and moon phases, seemed to come together in perfect harmony.  

If you're curious about how this photo was created, I wrote a blog post detailing the entire experience from capture to post-processing. http://bit.ly/mt-bromo

It's also interesting that as I post this at 3:15AM New Zealand time, I'm actually still outside capturing a star trail sequence over The Church Of The Good Shepard. You gotta love iPhone 3G... more »

The Moments Between || Feeling Excited

Having put the camera down for the last few days to catch up on projects, I’m very excited to get back out there and start shooting more of beautiful New Zealand! That means it’s time to double check that all my camera batteries are fully charged, my +Formatt-Hitech Filters are clean, and most importantly, that I have an ample supply of spare coffee! 

This photo is from our last trip to New Zealand in December 2012, when Naomi and I spent a few days on Keokohe Beach shooting the Moeraki Boulders. On that visit we didn’t quite get the conditions we were looking for, so now, more than a full year later, we're looking forward to round number two! :)

Rising Tide || New Zealand

As a photographer, there are certain places in the world that are an absolute joy to work with. Here on St. Clair Beach on the South Island of New Zealand, these old pylons create a unique opportunity for many beautiful compositions. On my last visit here back in December of 2012, I was fortunate to catch a series of spectacular sunrises during a powerful incoming swell. 

This morning, Naomi and I landed in New Zealand again for our 3rd visit. We’re really looking forward to exploring some new locations as well as revisiting a few of our old favorites, including these awesome pylons on St. Clair Beach. Hopefully the weather gods will smile down on me once again!
