LUMIX Ambassador Paul Mango is in the spotlight for this "Mirrorless Monday" post, and he's using one of my favorite cameras, the GX85. It's pocket-size but with a BIG "heart" and a long list of features/benefits. Paul shared these images on Facebook over the weekend, but it's not just the photographs I appreciated.
We're all still dealing with the pandemic and the challenges of physical distancing and safety. I love that through the entire pandemic; he hasn't slowed down on capturing images. Just something as simple as a photowalk with a purpose keeps him active in his passion for the craft, and allows him to stay in touch with other artists.
With these images, he wrote: Great Jersey City Street art photo walk today with a NJ-based photography group. Today I carried the GX85 and switched between the 12-60mm Lumix and a 7.5mm Rokinon fisheye as I love the barrel effect it creates with street art.
The GX85 comes with a kit lens that I've enjoyed as well - perfect for street photography - the 12-32mm lens. Click on the thumbnails below for more information about the GX85 and one of Paul's favorite lenses, the 12-60mm.
You'll find more information about Paul with the rest of the LUMIX Ambassadors on the team page on Panasonic's website. This group is one of the most diverse and creative teams in photo. All the ambassadors should be on your radar. And, follow Paul on both his Facebook page and on Instagram.
