I've talked a lot about the diversity of Panasonic's Luminaries. Each member of the team offers something just a little different, yet they all overlap in their passion for the craft, along with their understanding and appreciation for technology.
On the Facebook page for Skip Cohen University, I never noticed messages in my mail box. I had started the page and then didn't stay on top of it, something I won't do again. In going through old email I found some great images from LUMIX Luminary and good buddy, Rick Gerrity.
There are two things I want to point out. First, the quality of both images. These are right out of the can. Second, is about marketing. So many of you post images all the time and never think about how they might reach into another community or simply put, be of interest outside your normal circle. Rick went ahead and shared the image on a trucker site on Facebook and check out what he wrote.
A big thanks to Rick for putting up with me and still sharing the images with me six months later! Also a big thanks to Brian Sames for pulling off the road for a couple of shots!
Interested in seeing more of Rick's work? Check out his site along with the new Lumix Lounge!
On my trip back from Cleveland I made contact with a trucker with my trusty CB radio and convinced him to get off Route 80 and let me photograph his yellow custom Peterbilt. I then posted it on the "10-4" Magazine's Facebook page. It has gone crazy!
The photos were made with the GH 4 with an in camera filter. There is no retouching at all, straight out of the camera.
