As I was wandering through the LUMIX channel on YouTube, I caught this video from 2017 featuring Ben Grunow. I loved the video and put the post together, not realizing I shared it three years ago when it first came out.
I was going to delete it but thought about how relevant his tips are RIGHT NOW. We're in the middle of a pandemic, and so many photographers, to still be out shooting, have stepped into the landscape world, even if it's just a sunset or skyline image near home.
For me, the fun of a video like this is knowing Ben and having spent a little time with him at past LUMIX meetings. Throw in some great how-to advice, and it gives the film that much more value.
Ben is a leader in landscape photography and shares one great tip after another. I especially loved the touch screen demo, as well as the time-lapse component that starts about fifty seconds into the film.
The images I pulled for today's post are screenshots, and even though they're pretty good, imagine how beautiful the originals must be.
Ben Grunow, one of the Panasonic LUMIX Luminary photographers, talks about the advantage of LUMIX G Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera System and introduces his favorite lens in his landscape photography. Enjoy his interview with beautiful sceneries of Grindelwald, Switzerland in stunning 4K resolution.

Documentary Shot on LUMIX GH5 by Griffin Hammond
Ben's shooting with a GH5, and the film was also captured on a GH5. His technique is outstanding and at a time when landscape photography is one of the safest segments of imaging during the pandemic, there's a lot of great information being shared.
