Alan Shapiro3,052,247I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making the best bags in the world.)Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0081

Gailen Mapes75,138Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera S - 11 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 January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-11 12:18:06173000

Beautiful Beautiful Birds0It is time to honor these great photographers many of whom have been shared on +Beautiful Beautiful Birds #beautifulbeautifulbirds .  This circle contains photographers both professional and amateur alike who are passionate about photography. Many are bird and wildlife photographers, although some only photograph birds and wildlife on occasion.   If you enjoy great photography, please consider adding this circle.  The photographers come from many walks of life, and from all over  the globe.   This circle is not complete, but will continue grow.  Sadly google for whatever reason will not allow more then 500 people to be shared in any one circle.  This circle was over 500 and I will need to figure out who was omitted once this is shared.  They will be the first to be placed in  the next circle that I will share.   That circle will be shared as soon as I have what I feel is a large enough circle to once again share.   Thanks for following Beautiful Beautiful Birds, and please follow those whose work make this page possible. Without their public shared this page would not be possible.Warmest Regards,+William Joers curator of +Beautiful Beautiful Birds 2015-01-08 18:34:11501000

Times Windows2,648 THEODORE Team Elite Engager CircleMy   #teamelite    circles have a Chipmunks theme this time, so they are named Alvin, Simon and Theodore and of course my Elite Inner Circle.You may not have been included in my   #teamelite    circles this week. This is because I start compiling the next circles 5 days after publishing. I send a circle notification, a picture notification, and I plus mention everyone in the circle, which gives everyone three chances to know they are included. If you want to make sure you don't miss my circle posts, you should create a circle called "Notify Me", add me to it, and set notifications to "On". In any case, don't worry - you can get into next week's circles by sharing this one*     #teamelite     members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!     #eliteinnercircle     *I have had so many great     #teamelite     engagers that I need three whole circles - why are they     #teamelite     engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!My     #teamelite      circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite     is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite     you need to do the following:1. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already2. +1 this circle3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles. DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S   #teamelite   OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM   #teamelite   FOR GOOD4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if possible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).5. So I can easily find your share, always publicly share my original shared circle. You'll know if you're sharing the original one because you won't see "Jason Levy originally shared" above here. If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6. You need to share within 5 days of when the circle was published, as I publish my   #teamelite   circles weekly, and they take me a day or so to curate. Otherwise it may be two weeks before I pick up your share and you get added to the circle again. This is especially true for my   2014-12-20 14:52:5841111214

Drinking too much Marsala
In honor of the new #pantonecoloroftheyear2015 : Marsala
I tried to make a LR split tone preset that would come close.

You can download and share my new #lightroompreset  here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/148zafxyi7bo9a4/Marsala.lrtemplate

Go play and experiment (keeping in mind that presets are just a starting point for your own unique exploration.) Enjoy and, as always, stay inspired.

As for my subject: Lola is a Cinereous Vulture who would live with me and be one of my muses were I a Court Painter for some wealthy monarch during the Renaissance. We would eat pork belly together. Hers would be raw. Mine, slow braised in smoked maple syrup.

Sometimes, the smallest of things can yield the most beautiful of experiences.
This Begonia couldn't sleep (or so I told myself) so decided to keep it company. I took it into my home office and turned on my computer. The light was perfect so simply adjusted the angle of my monitor  and shot with my camera on my +MeFOTO Daytrip Tripod (chocolate colored, of course) I adjusted the brightness setting on my monitor to adjust and even played with changing the color of my screen (in place of gels). Was a fun experiment and goes to show that its not about having fancy equipment; it's about playing with whatever you have at hand and seeing what you can achieve.
Stay inspired.

Thinking of roads taken and not taken as the wind serenaded me with a reflective tune and the trees sang backup.

As far as this image goes, I was processing multiple split toned versions to see which I liked best and decided to try something: took three of the versions into a single photoshop document and started exploring different blend modes and opacities. Ultimately used only two with a hue blend mode at 75% opacity. Gotta experiment more. Here's to #biggloriousmistakes  

Stay inspired.

Seeing life in death.
So I had parked my car outside the other day and came out to find this sitting in the crevasse between the hood of my car and windshield. It was quite large (the leaf itself is about 8" long) given the time of year. Why had this leaf stuck around when all the other leaves had long since vanished? Normally, I would just pluck it off and toss it away but this leaf found me for a reason and I supposed it had a story/lesson/joke(?) it wanted to share. So I took it home and set it down on some black velvet, grabbed my camera and stared at it, intent on listening. I listened; changing positions of the leaf (to make it more comfortable, to make it feel exalted, to help us see eye to eye.)
   I took exactly 387 pictures and I am not happy with any of them. Talk about being frustrated.
Surely I was listening...but the conversation went over my head, the lesson eluded me.S... more »

Surely I was listening...but the conversation went over my head, the lesson eluded me. So, I put the leaf in a beautiful mercury glass vase to rest and will revisit it another day. This old, shriveled up, tired leaf found me for a reason. And I kept it for a reason. Now to figure out why.

This is Persephone. A new pet ultra-creepy photo subject. For the record; I hate spiders, let alone tarantulas as big as my hand. But still; I have long wanted to photograph them.
   Good news: I happen to have the (hopefully) next Jane Goodall/Dian Fossey for a daughter so wrangling big hairy spiders shouldn't be all that awful.
   Bad news: my daughter is 15 and likes to inflict all measure of psychological warfare on her dad so not sure my plan is sound. Stay tuned.

This little cow went to market,
This little cow stayed home,
This little cow had roast beef,
This little cow had none,
And this little cow cried wee wee wee all the way home.

This little cow went to market,
This little cow stayed home,
This little cow had roast beef,
This little cow had none,
And this little cow cried wee wee wee all the way home.

Not a snowflake in sight. (Sigh)
No matter. Wishing you all a warm Christmas surrounded by all that make you smile.

A little heartfelt appreciation for great listeners.

Yeah, I like to talk (in words and/or pictures).
To share things beautiful and less so. 
But as much as I like to talk, none of it would matter were it not for those that like to listen. 
I am truly grateful for you.
