Diversity is the name of the game when it comes to describing Panasonic's Luminary team. In fact, I'm not sure there's any photographic specialty at least one of them hasn't ventured into sometime in their career. Each member of the Luminary team should be on your radar. So, what better way to introduce you to the team than to share one of their favorite images each week.
One of those "Masters of Diversity" is my good buddy, Bob Coates. Based in Sedona, in the fifteen years or so that we've been friends, I've enjoyed Bob's wedding, and portrait images, architectural, landscapes, fine art, and the list is virtually endless. I'll let you be the judge of your favorite of the two images below, but I love the richness of the black and white.
You'll fine more of Bob's work and wisdom at Successful-Photographer.com and also with the Luminary team in the Lumix Lounge. And, if you see Bob on the schedule to be speaking in your community, run don't walk to grab a seat. He's also a terrific instructor!
This is one of my favorite images from when the Lumix GX7 first came out. Like most Lumix cameras it has a very low profile so is not intimidating to subjects when doing street photography. (check out its newer cousin the GX85!) I knew I wanted this to be in square format so I set the camera to show me the one to one crop .
"What you see is what you get" rocks when trying to fill the frame.
