When I write about technology, I always like to remind you I don't proclaim to be a professional photographer. I've worked and even shot with some of the finest artists in our industry, but my passion is the business and marketing side of imaging. However, that doesn't mean I don't have an appreciation for all of you who are working so hard to keep raising the bar on your skill set. I also have a huge respect for new technology and especially what Panasonic keeps bringing to the party!
Saturday night we were on Marco Island, just south of Naples, Florida. We had an amazing sunset and I spent a lot of time playing with a LUMIX FZ1000. I'm blown away by this camera's capabilities, especially in low light situations. With a 25-400mm fixed zoom lens, it's one of the most fun cameras I've ever traveled with. Click on the camera on the left if you'd like to find out more.
The image above is full wide angle, just to give you a feel for the total scene. I was on the balcony of our room on the 6th floor. The red arrow is the where the people on the beach are walking. I didn't have a tripod with me, but pushed the ISO and rested the camera as best I could on the railing.
Florida sunsets this time a year are pretty spectacular. I know it's pretty tough to screw up a shot. Still, technology is a kick and with the FZ1000 it's even more fun to be out there clicking the shutter!
