It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion.To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks likeON AIRThis will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout.I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing.If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't.SPECIAL GUESTBecause I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things I will have my good friend and great photographer +Susan Marinello on the show to facilitate the discussion.She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well.We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access.DIRECTIONS1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album3.  IMPORTANT If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video.4. Make sure the album is Public access5. Add +Scott Jarvie  +Susan Marinello to your circles6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites.IMPORTANTIt bears repeating:If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video.DShare your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00144

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 10:24:3761404

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 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.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  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 parts 4 and 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/3vn0OC*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.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117

Everyone Fails
I don't know if you know this, but everyone fails. Everyone! Only some of those people aren't failures because they keep moving forward having learned from their mistakes.

I recently made some big rookie mistakes and I wrote about how I'm able to keep moving forward. The goal is to create right?

To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as...to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you're dead.

So how's the G+ community doing these days? I haven't been nearly as active this last year because much of my business has been very local and Facebook is much better for that. 

It looks like only a fraction of the people I follow are active anymore and I would say the same for those that have circled me. My last post has zero interaction after four hours. Not one +1 from 59K followers. Kind of sad. I used to really like this place.

The blog has been pretty quiet lately because I've been busy with client work and a new project I'm excited to announce today. I've started a brand new podcast called The Photocast. 

Going beyond the typical gear reviews and photography tips, I want to head into subjects that surround working photographers. Things like business, marketing and how I maintain my sanity balancing work, family and faith. This will also be an interesting show for amateur photographers who want to make the jump into full-time photography. 

I need your help getting this started and off the ground. The easiest way you can help is by subscribing to my podcast. Next, If you know someone that might interested, let them know.

I'm also interesting in finding other working photographers that want to be a guest on the show. No broadcasting experience required :P

You know that feeling with you finished a long and tedious project? Yeah, I'm feeling it right now! Wanting to knock the parent's socks off, I spent a significant amount of time processing these. Well worth it. I only wish I could see all of their reactions first hand.

It's been raining for days (very grateful) and this morning I could see a touch of blue sky before it starts raining some more today. #photosphere

BTW, this is my first legit photo sphere. I just upgraded to the new Moto X from the Motorola RAZR. What a night and difference!

How about today we give back and share some new people to follow. Many of the people I have circled are not active here anymore.

I'll go first. Be sure to circle +Matt Hernandez​​ to see amazing sports portraits. Mad skills with lighting and post processing!

Sometimes its really easy to get caught up in lighting and gear when you should just stick to the basics. Can you say family silhouette at sunset?

Yes, please!

Following up after my last post with Paisley going nuts on a fly that was on set, I thought this one was worthy of a #meme.

How would you caption this?

Todays a big #baseball day. The Giants are facing off against the Royals in game 7 and my family's last Fall Ball games are today as well. Should be an exciting evening.

To commemorate, a sparkley new baseball!

Getting the studio setup for some dogs that are coming in. I grabbed the first object I could find to get the light setup. It looks like I'm about to do the fanciest #Craigslist  ad on earth.

This is straight out of camera. #Strobist  settings: Background is a roll of white seamless. Two Alienbee 800 through two large softboxes on the background to make it go white. The main light was an Einstein through a socked beauty dish.

Got my hands on the Nikkor 200-400 f/4 today. The thing is a beast. It's taking a lot of strength to hand hold this steady enough to get a shot. I'll definitely be using a monopod at the hunt dog test I'm covering tomorrow.

Hahaha, I was looking at someone's portraits taken on a railroad track and my mind instantly started thinking about how train track shots were so cliche and overdone...but then I remember that I committed that sin early on in my career too. 

Here's a notable one. You can tell the older one wasn't really into it. Aren't we all guilty of this one?

I've been toiling all day to on one single page on my website, my sports page. After taking the evening off to coach a little league game, after sitting back down after the kids went to bed, I just now finished up at 12:33 PST. I just couldn't walk away until it was finished.

A new wildfire sprung up today coating the western skies with smoke. So I head out to grab a few shots of anyone that was willing to step in front of the softbox. Matt volunteered. If only could hear the audio that accompanied this gallant pose. 

Reminder: Cooler weather is upon us. Now is the perfect time to schedule senior and Christmas card family sessions. Call to get on the calendar.

Strobist Info: Einstein with a large softbox facing the sun. Ambient was -2 stops under. The smoke offered up that bright red rim light.

As my boys grow into their teens, they seem to loose some of their sweetness everyday. When I can get a picture that still has a piece of that, it seems to resonate with me more.

Don't let the time slip by, have photos taken of your kids before their grown and gone!

I got some prints and an album delivered today. Before I delivered them, I wanted to get a few nice pictures of them for the website. So I setup a simple lighting setup in the living room.

Lighting Info: I used a single Einstein softened with a large gridded softbox. I rotated the softbox towards the camera to prevent glare on the shiny surfaces and to feather the light. Notice how the top of the images have a natural gradation from dark to light. That's all in-camera.

Getting as much camera gear strapped to my back so I can ride across Shasta Dam to do a photoshoot. Where we're going, only a bicycle can go, so I've got to pack it.

Also, if you're wondering, I'm not auditioning for the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie!

In the pack is one camera body, two lenses, an Alienbee 800, Vagabond Mini battery pack, a Speedlight with battery pack, a shoot through umbrella, a beauty dish two light stands, some wireless triggers and probably some other stuff I'm forgetting. Nothing but net!

You often think of full sun as the enemy for portraiture. When you're shooting something like team sports, you don't always get to choose the time and location. You have to think on your feet and get great results. 

These boys just came off the field on a 108 degree day. I put the sun behind them (providing the rim light) and used a single AB800 with a Beauty dish and sock. I couldn't have done this with a speed light because it didn't have enough power to compete with the sun.

I used a mild BW layer to build up some contrast and I sharpened the image. Otherwise, very little post processing here.

I was strolling through some of my early work this afternoon and found this shot I never processed. With more hot summer days behind us than those in front, I processed this like one of the  summer sunsets we've had recently.

I've got an opportunity for someone who'd be willing to model for me. I need some simple shots for a lighting e-book I'm working on. If you're interested, please message me for details. Someone in the Red Bluff through Redding area please.

This needs more animated GIF

I've never made my own custom animated GIF before. Learned something new in Photoshop.  Who know such wizardry was possible?

These girls were doing a super cute pre-game "Pump it Up!" cheer.

This was just three frames shot by hand, auto-aligned in Photoshop and then animated to a GIF. Google it!

So you are a photographer and put up a website to make it official. You are open for business. The only problem is your portfolio website probably sucks and you don't even know it. 

Today I wanted to talk about three common pitfalls new photographers make when putting their portfolio together. There's no reason your website can't be awesome and attract new clients.

As a photographer, we naturally want to please people with our photographs. For many of us, we can go down the road of people pleasing which is a stifle to our creativity. We'll play things safe and get stagnant because if you're trying to make EVERYONE happy, you'll make yourself miserable catering to every whim and opinion. 

Why not forget about all of that, produce what you love and attract people who are like minded?

I tackle this topic in my post today.

I had my camera ready in the dugout as the losing error cost them the game. As you can tell, it hit him hard! :)

So you're in fast shooting situation and you don't have an assistant to test out your light on, what do you do?

I had to think quickly so I stuck my tripod in there to check my exposure and lighting ratios. It did the trick.

Gotta think fast. Have you ever had to act quickly in a fast paced shooting situation?

Do you guys ever wake up feeling the social media mehs? I've been stuck in a rut where I just don't really care about sharing what's been going on in my life. I'm still shooting and busier than ever. I just don't feel the compulsion to share. 

How do you guys like to get over these hurdles?

The one place I seem to feel free to share for some reason is Instagram. I'm not really sure why either.

It's that time of year again. Grass stains and snow cones down at the ball fields. It's little league. I've got five boys and they're all playing. Crazy schedules are the norm and the car is always packed with chairs and sunscreen. I love this game!

Looks like a good ride. I like how you cut this together. It more than a POV ride video :)

When I had a day job I used to run up to the mountains around Redding on my lunch breaks with my friend and co-worker Aaron Patterson. One day we were looking around Clear Creek when we found these really cool granite formations in the water. Unable to fit it all into one frame, I shot this with six vertical frames to create a pano. 

I remember trying to process this over three years ago when I shot it. I kept failing at the stitch and ultimately got frustrated and these frames eventually got forgotten. I found them yesterday and managed to pull it off. 

Don't ask me where this is, because I have no clue what so ever where we found this. :D

There's a lot of pixels in there so be sure to see it full screen!

Fern Canyon on the Northern California coast is such a unique and beautiful place. It's also one of the toughest places to shoot. Everything is moving, so sharp pictures precious and are to be treasured. When the sun was still up, I liked the way the light filtered down hitting the ferns leaving an aura of mystery and intrigue.
