Just for a second, think back to how the Internet has changed the way we share photographs. Then add in the only good thing about the pandemic - time to capture, share and view images. Suddenly the world is at your fingertips, literally.
Charles and Jennifer Maring aren't new to SCU. Since SCU started, we've been sharing their work in guest posts, images, podcasts, and videos. This past year they made a significant change in their lives and left the Northeast and are now in Savannah enjoying a considerable lifestyle change. They represent one of the most diverse couples in imaging. The tagline on Charles' FB page says it all:
Pro Artist creating at the intersections of photography, video, oil painting, music, & fashion.
Charles shared the image above on Facebook last week. If the scene looks familiar, dig back to your memory of Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump. A day or two later he added this shot with the guitar, which also looks terrific as his new header on his FB page. Click on either image to view in the SCU Lightbox.
In the almost 200 year history of photography, artists have never had more creative tools than they do today, and so many of them are thanks to Panasonic. Click on the thumbnails below to learn more about Charles's two creative tools to capture the images above. Visit Maring Visuals to see more of Charles and Jennifer's work and get to know the rest of the Ambassador team. They're a pretty fantastic crew and regularly sharing great content on their blogs and websites.
