"If you don't have a challenge, you're not telling a good enough story!"
Lumix Stories are short videos about my favorite camera system, Panasonic's Lumix line. They feature some of the most diverse photographers in our industry,
I chose this particular video to share because it features one of my favorite artists, and longtime friend Jennifer Maring. She's on location in Verona, Italy doing an editorial assignment with the GH5, which is not only responsible for the still images I pulled off the clip but the filming of the video itself.
I love her reference to the GH5 as a "stealth camera," because it's so light. We've all traveled with heavy bags of camera gear, and at the end of the day felt every ache and pain, a reminder of the weight of that bag!
The GH5 is loaded with features, outstanding optics and technology giving artists an incredible selection of creative tools. But, when one of the benefits is the weight of the gear, you're free to be creative without physical restrictions. Your energy is being channeled into capturing each vision in your mind's eye without regard to "schlepping" equipment!
As you watch the video, pay attention to the way Jennifer sets up some of her shots. There's some great subliminal education about shooting on location, including her lighting. She's traveling with Profoto's Off-Camera Flash System, giving her the opportunity for more creativity in images where in the past she would have been limited.
To see more of Jennifer's work visit Maring Visuals. To learn more about Lumix, along with Jennifer's favorite lens, the Lumix G Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm, F1.2, visit the Lumix Lounge and meet the rest of the Luminary team. Just click on the GH5 to the left!
Panasonic's tagline for Lumix is "Changing Photography," and they're living up to that reputation with every product in the lineup!
