Each week for over close to three years I've shared a post or a video from a member of Panasonic's Luminary Team along with a few of my own experiences. There are over 160 posts staring LUMIX cameras, and each one has introduced you to another way Panasonic is living up to its tagline, CHANGING PHOTOGRAPHY!
This morning as I sat down and was trying to think about what to share, it occurred to me that while I always link you to the LumixLounge, I've never shared two of my favorite "rooms." Just click on the banner below to get introduced to the Luminary team. They represent some incredibly talented artists, and while they all have slightly different specialties, the common denominator is their love for the craft and education.
Each member of the Luminary team needs to be in your network. They're speaking and teaching throughout the year and coming up in 2017 you'll have a chance to meet many of them directly in the Panasonic booth at WPPI and ShutterFest - all in the first four months of the new year. Just click on the banner to meet the team!
My other favorite stopping point is the Lumix Lounge Gallery, which is loaded with outstanding images from members of the Luminary team along with other Lumix artists. Here's your chance to see what other photographers are doing with different Lumix cameras and often link to their social media pages.
I chose the image above to share of Suzette Allen's. Besides Suzette and her husband Jon being great friends of both me and Sheila's, the image is at Mono Lake. I wanted to share the image, because Mono Lake needs to be on your bucket list! That's photo educator and founder of the Creative Photo Academy, Mark Comon. Mark and I also go back a whole lot of years, and he's always been focused on education and helping artists raise the bar on their skill set.
Clicking on the Lumix Lounge Gallery and you're immediately introduced to a sea of thumbnail images all linked to the various artists and often more of their work. Just keep clicking on "load more" and you'll find yourself in the company of photographers with an incredible passion for the craft, together with LUMIX technology.
I've written a lot over the years about the importance of feeding your creative genes every day. For me, that's one of the biggest benefits of the Internet. Often, especially on a Monday morning, just a short scroll through Cyberspace energizes me from so many different perspectives and it's fun to start in the Lumix Lounge.
Check out the Lumix Lounge and stay on top of new technology, creativity, special events and techniques you need in your bag of tricks to help you become an even better artist!
