The LUMIX family just keeps growing and in this guest post, Luminary, William Innes shares one his new favorite features, shooting in one of the LUMIX creative modes.

On of my favorite new features on cameras these days are the creative modes. Mainly the black and white modes.
For the last few weeks I have been bringing my Lumix GX7 to both weddings and engagement sessions and leaving it in black and white mode. In the past when shooting digital it was easy to convert any image to B&W using Lightroom or Photoshop. Now with the GX7 set to B&W creative (Dynamic Monochrome on the camera menu) I can actual see in black and white while looking through the electronic viewfinder – how cool!
All I do is keep the compact GX7 around my neck while photographing a wedding or engagement session and every now and then use it to capture an awesome monochromatic image. I actually shoot in jpeg mode because the camera is unbelievable at getting the exposure spot on.
I have heard the term “preprocessing” used in discussions lately and this is precisely what I am doing – eliminating the need for any post production work.
