Gailen Mapes67,950Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera G-I - 16 of 31Note: 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-09-16 10:09:57161205

Gailen Mapes66,180Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  G-I - 16 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 +2014-07-16 10:24:41153218

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

Fluid Time II – an (en)Visionographic Chicago Story
...the only purpose of art is to make you dream, to make you travel. Don't let them tell you anything else. If they do, they just don't understand...

Second chapter in my Chicago series and the story goes on. You can read it on my site http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/fluid-time-ii/ as well as the stories behind all my photos. Subscribe to get all my posts, tutorials and exciting news the moment I post them. Next coming: something I was promising for a long time (read: my creative & processing method) which is in the making and you'll be the first to get it if you subscribe http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/subscribe/

Point FINAL  
NYC as you will never see it again... You can't see NYC like this anymore, since the Freedom Tower - WTC1 has been added to its skyline. I shot this image when the place of the old WTC was still empty and this is actually a reprocessing according to my new vision for it. So, I could call it a historical image. And it's a historical image for another reason, it's the last image I added to the book From Basics to Fine Art by me and +Joel Tjintjelaar  Thank you all for the many questions about it, the book is finished and we are a few days away from its launching. We'll post the announcement over the next days and if you don't want to miss it, you can subscribe to my site as it will first appear there http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/subscribe/ Small trivia: the book counts 400+ pages. I think it's a record...

ATHENS Workshop 2014, Nov 15-16 ...and more
http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/athens-2014-workshop/
First, I want to congratulate everyone who won a Honorable Mention at the IPA 2014 (the HM have just been announced). All  the images I submitted won multiple Honorable Mentions which makes me happy and now I'm looking forward to the awards announcements next week. Good luck to you all! 
Second, a few words about the Athens workshop. There are just a few spots left, so, if you want to participate, book your spot because we're approaching the limit of admissions.
One question I was asked and I want to answer here, is about the equipment you need in order to attend (or that you need in general, by extension). The answer is that you don't need any fancy camera or lens, you don't need a tilt-shift lens or some complex external LCD screens, you don't need a fullf... more »

One question I was asked and I want to answer here, is about the equipment you need in order to attend (or that you need in general, by extension). The answer is that you don't need any fancy camera or lens, you don't need a tilt-shift lens or some complex external LCD screens, you don't need a full frame camera to create great images. I've shot many of my award winning-images with a crop camera and a common all-around lens, with regular filters and a flimsy tripod, and never thought the equipment would stop me express my vision. And it didn't. If you have more advanced tools, that's great, use them, they will help you, but if you don't, that's great too. All you need is to love photography and be eager to explore your vision and personal style. And know that photography will make you happy even when you use the most modest tools because everything starts inside yourself and not in the piece of metal and plastic the camera is..
Have a look at the great work my past students created, many of them with basic DSLRs and kit lenses. They all loved doing it though. And the results show it.

FULL Review - FIRECREST 16 IRND 4.8  filters by +Formatt-Hitech
http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/firecrest-16-irnd-formatt-hitech-review/
As promised, here is an extensive review of the Firecrest filters posted on my blog. My impressions after working with the filters for a few weeks. RAW files to check the result and even to download and see in large, also processed images to see the results. I have enjoyed working with these filters at the max and I promise you, if you try them out once, you will never want to use anything else again. Firecrest is indeed the best ND filter have shot with to date – not only free from color cast but also free from vignette and so easy to use. Read the review to see much more.
If you have questions, they are more than welcome.

In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu)
 Shot with the new +Formatt-Hitech  Firecrest 16 ND filter.

This is my first image shot with the  Firecrest 16 stops ND filter that I have just received a few days ago, and with the T/S lens + Canon 5D MKIII, and it is a landscape! 
Surprise?!!!  
Yes, I'm an architecture lover (read obsessed:)) but I'm in love with nature too.

 I'm already extremely pleased with the results I get with this filter. Shooting with the Firecrest 16 is like shooting without any filter at all, that's how neutral these filters are. I was shooting exposures of 8 minutes and more at sunset these days, exposures where all NDs would give you a lot of color cast, just to try this filter at its limits. Well, guess what! No color cast whatsoever, it's that good! I'll let you all know more of my impressions with the new Firecrest (plus RAW files) soon.

At over 400 pages, I would not say it is an easy read, but more of an educational one. There is no fluff here. It is the quintessential ‘Start at the beginning and continue until you get to the end’ type of book. (…) From Basics To Fine Art is a must read for anyone who is looking to make their way into the world of fine art.“

Third year in a row, happy to be awarded!
GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE (1st, 2nd & 3rd prize) & 2 Honorable Mentions at PX3 2014 PROFESSIONALS – Prix de la Photographie de Paris - The most prestigious European fine art competition with many thousands of submissions from 85 countries – for my series “Fluid Time – An (en)Visionographic Chicago Story” and “Exuberance of Strings”. 
Worth mentioning maybe, I won the only GOLD medal in my category, one of the few categories this year where the jury gave only one gold. So I'm even prouder for that. 
I didn't have much time to work on my photographs this year, due to the long hours I dedicated to the book From Basics to Fine Art plus the workshops and the mentoring programs I'm doing, but I'm delighted to say that all the images I've entered in the competition won an award and even more.

From Basics to Fine Art – BOOK REVIEW

We had a fantastic feedback so far and here's a great review written by +Jack Torcello   to the book  by me and +Joel Tjintjelaar Not only what  Jack says honors us in the highest degree but Jack's writing style is just wonderful. I particularily liked the word play between "Gospodarou" and "gospel" (that I'm emphasizing in the image too). I admit I never thought about it this association, but it's a great find.

Point FINAL  
NYC as you will never see it again... You can't see NYC like this anymore, since the Freedom Tower - WTC1 has been added to its skyline. I shot this image when the place of the old WTC was still empty and this is actually a reprocessing according to my new vision for it. So, I could call it a historical image. And it's a historical image for another reason, it's the last image I added to the book From Basics to Fine Art by me and +Joel Tjintjelaar  Thank you all for the many questions about it, the book is finished and we are a few days away from its launching. We'll post the announcement over the next days and if you don't want to miss it, you can subscribe to my site as it will first appear there http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/subscribe/ Small trivia: the book counts 400+ pages. I think it's a record...

The 1st Postulate of VISION
“Inspiration is not to be found outside, but inside yourself”
What you see in the outside world  is only a pretext for you to feel something about what you see and be inspired to translate it into images by using vision. So, next time you will be searching for inspiration you know what to do. Don't search to find it by looking at what others do, but look inside yourself to find your real vision.  It's there where you will find the answer.

You are the source of everything you create, do never forget this! So, don't try to copy, don't try to emulate, it will not be “You” and it will show. Just have a look around you and you will see who is expressing his own self in his work and words and who is just following. Nothing bad in being inspired, but do not stop there, you will lose yourself as an artist, you will miss your creative purpose. And you may have just one chance to do this because life is short, it's not just a cliché. On the other side, if you do believe in what you do, don't care what others say, what others do, just do your thing. Follow your instincts and they will get you there eventually. Trust your logic and feelings and transform them into images, this is what art is about, being true to your beliefs and finding a way to put them out there for the world to see them. If you do this, you accomplished your mission in front of yourself. 
And don't forget, this is a very tough world, the world of art. Especially once you reach a certain level of exposure. As an artist you are by default exposed since you show your most inner self in your art. You couldn't do your job if you weren't, but that makes you vulnerable: of being critiqued, of being envied, of unscrupulous people  using your work or taking advantage of your ideas without giving you credit, of being scrutinized all the time. I'm talking from experience here, mine and others'. But it shouldn't scare you, it's normal. And you should keep in mind that true value and talent, plus hard work  will always prevail, will always be rewarded. So, trust in yourself and your art, go on doing what you do and don't care about anything else! You are the one that counts, because you have the vision that will become that masterpiece you have in mind...  you are the creator of your “Mona Lisa”...

Technique: T/S LE = Tilt + Shift + Long Exposure
Camera settings: 393.0 sec. @ f/6.3, ISO 100
Shot with Canon 5D MK3 & TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II 
T/S settings - 8.5 degrees oblique tilt at 45 degrees rotation, 12mm shift (rise)
Filters: 10+6 stops +Formatt-Hitech  Filters ProStop IRND - Joel Tjintjelaar Edition
Processing - LR5, PS CS6, +Topaz Labs  B&W Effects 2+Topaz DeNoise 5 + Topaz Detail 3

I have to say that Topaz DeNoise  did a great job in removing the noise from this image. I'm really happy with how it worked in this case, I was even wondering if I should process the image or not since it had quite a bit of noise, before I passed it through Topaz DeNoise. Check out all the Topaz plugins here  http://www.topazlabs.com/782.html  and if you like them get a 15% discount with code “juliaannagospodarou”. Topaz Detail has an even better discount this month. 50% off with code "aprdetail" from the same link. 

For more technical (processing etc.)  details about this image, you know by now, I invite you over to my site http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/fluid-time-iii/ ___

Metropolis Magazine Interview
Μια συνέντευξη “εφ'ολης της ύλης” που έδωσα για το περιοδικό Metropolis που κυκλοφορεί και μπορείτε να το διαβάσετε από σήμερα. Αθήνα και γιατί την αγαπώ.
A new interview with me in the Greek magazine Metropolis that you can find at the news stands from today. No photography this time (not much, anyway). Talking about Athens, history, architecture, life in the city and more. If you don't speak Greek, well, you'll have to find a friend who does, to translate it for you, if you want to hear me talking about anything else than (en)Visionography, Photography Drawing and fine art : ) I can only tell you that it's (even more) interesting. 
Enjoy!!

Berlin – Jewish Museum - Architect Daniel Libeskind
You can see the first part of the Shadows of A Soul series here http://bit.ly/1eIRZTG These are images I never posted publicly and you can only see them on my site. 
For more about this image stay tuned, I'll post the story behind it in a couple of days, together with details about the processing, since it was a quite complicated image to work on. This is a combination of 5 images and I'll show you how I made this look like it does. Believe me, it has nothing to do with the originals. But I won't spoil the surprise... : )

Whoever knows me better knows that I'm totally in love with people motion blur in photography. People motion blur can travel me to a totally different world and show me things I'll never see in normal circumstances, it's like a transcendental experience to watch this kind of images and to create them myself. That “state of trance” that only art can set you in, I'm feeling it when I come in contact with this kind of photographs or when I live them by working on them. 
It all started in 1994 when I saw the people motion blur work of Alexey Titarenko http://www.alexeytitarenko.com/ for the first time. It was the moment I came in contact with Fine art photography and when I understood that there is much more to it than to click the shutter and capture a nice scene. When I understood that you can use photography to explore worlds unseen by anyone and that you can show this worlds to everyone then and make them part of your experience. That was a turning point on my artistic path, that was the moment when I started to “see” not only to look... 
I had pretty much the same feelings when I saw for the first time for real an exhibition with the paintings of Francis Bacon http://www.francis-bacon.com/ in Paris in 1996. If you are familiar with Bacon you know that in his paintings the bodies of the subjects are also “blurred”, contorted, changed. They lose their shape to transform into something else that takes you to another dimension, to subconscious and even further. Even if using different tools, photography and painting, for me the two artists are similar as for how far they go with exploring the unseen side of this world and how powerful the experience can be. I still haven't found something that can replace the sensation the work of these two artists give me. 
This was a long introduction to why I like to work with people motion blur, for those who don't know that already. 
But as I said ...more about it in a couple of days. See you on my site.

PHOTOGRAPHY DRAWING™ - Black and white (en)Visioning and processing method

My secret.... ? Use the magic of light and shadow to shape the world. But HOW?? 
I was asked many times what is my secret in photography. How do I make the world look perfect? My answers was by “drawing my photographs”. Many of you know, I'm talking about Photography Drawing for a long time, must be at least 2 years but I never till now made a serious study on this method. The time has come though to make this secret public. I'm doing it in the upcoming book “From Basics to Fine Art” that I'm writing with +Joel Tjintjelaar  and I'm now posting a large fragment from the book that will give you an insight into my mind and explain this method.

A new name for photography in the digital era and a new page on my site. 
You've heard me talking about this term many times, now it's the moment for it to have its own page where I explain it and what it means in my work.  We need a new definition of photography since digital photography is so different from the traditional analog one and I realized this more and more over the years as I was moving from film to digital and from the traditional dark room to processing my images using software.  I realized we rely much more on vision in digital photography than on the given light in a given space, that we don't need to limit ourselves to what we see but we can also photograph what we feel and this is the essence of my theory.

Christmas is a time for joy, happiness and love. Oh, and presents too! : ) Wishing you a lot of  all these and many more. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!
I took this image in the Mountains of Pindus, Greece, on a very cold winter day when I was experimenting with different effects among which ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and NFLE (Natural Frosty Lens Effect) which is what you see here. 
How you create this effect? You can find  some tips about it on my site http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/white-sounds/

Some more of the images submitted for the Athens Workshop 2013 & +Formatt-Hitech  Architectural Contest, plus the first 3 places that you already saw, which will be published in the next issue of Stark Magazine. As you can see, the quality of the work submitted is very high. I personally am very pleased with the results the students had after the workshop and I'm happy to have helped them with my guidance. We'll see even more great images posted from this event, I've already seen some of the work in progress of my students and there is a lot of talent out there. I'll come back and show you more as new work is published.
