Today's "Mirrorless Monday" isn't perfect because it's captured with mirrorless technology, but it was created while maintaining physical distancing and safety. LUMIX Ambassador, Todd White, shot these images as part of a commercial assignment for a client, 600 Degrees Pizzeria, and it's a great reminder for many of you to use this downtime to fine-tune your still life skillset.
Todd's gearbox included the LUMIX S5 with the LUMIX S 20-60mm lens. When I called Todd for permission to share these images, I love what he said about the shoot:
"I love keeping it simple! I shot this with natural window light, camera left with $3.00 of foam core from Target, bounced on camera right, just to give me a little fill. And I used the table in the restaurant while standing on the bench seat."
Todd's exposure triad: f4.5 @ 1/160 - ISO 800 at 36mm
Besides the fun of keeping in touch with what Todd's working on, today's post is about not slowing down. The pandemic challenges have impacted all of us, but as I've written numerous times this past year, hunkering down is about your health, not about your creativity, skillset, or business!
