To start this post, click on the image above to view it enlarged in the SCU Lightbox. It was captured/created by my good buddy, Shiv Verma. He's no stranger to SCU, but of all the images we've shared of Shiv's, it's one of my favorites.
To start, I love black and white. We don't need to see color in every image, and I love it when Shiv adds something more to an image, just by keeping it simple. He shared this image on Facebook two days ago, and it deserves to be seen more! With the photo, he wrote:
Simplification. Photographed with the Lumix S1R and the Lumix S Pro 24-70 f/2.8 lens
and Breakthrough ND filter 10 stop.
Exposure Triad: f/11, 60sec, ISO 100.
Shiv Verma should be on your radar. He's always sharing great content with a lot of "how-to" information. You'll also find he's a regular contributor on the Platypod.com blog and their Instagram page. His website is only a click away.
Shive is also a LUMIX Ambassador, one of the most creative groups in imaging. Follow Shiv and the other LUMIX Ambassadors for great content and a lot of terrific diversity. Each Ambassador has a unique skill set, but the common denominators are their love for the craft and respect for quality and creativity.
