Education, even when you're an established professional, never stops in photography and last week's meeting with Panasonic's Luminaries was certainly no exception. This is an amazing group of twelve artists, totally dedicated to "changing photography". Having worked with almost all of them, I was invited to participate in their annual conference last week in Austin, Texas.
After a day of being updated on the full product line, technical changes, etc. we headed to Roadhouse Relics complete with a lot of LUMIX gear, two models and an opportunity to just shoot for the fun of it.
While I'm not normally a fan of in-camera presets, shooting over the shoulders of the Luminaries, I had a chance to do some of my own experimenting. My favorite is the sweetness of their sepia preset.
While I realize some of you look at presets as an amateur tool, think again and then read the post Luminary, Bob Coates, demonstrated far more extensively than I did with this one image.
Remember, this is a straight jpeg right out of the can.
The point is, technology is changing constantly and the discussion over mirrorless cameras is doing exactly what Panasonic set out to do, change photography!
There's no shortage of great gear when this group gets together!
That's Kristen Jensen, Bob Coates and Rob Knight together with a whole lot of amazing LUMIX cameras.
