One Month, One Camera – April 2019 (III) – Last Dance Of The Lumix?

This month in my One Month, One Camera (OMOC) project, I chose the Panasonic Lumix GF1, a Micro Four Thirds (M43) body.

It's time to revisit… Continue reading One Month, One Camera – March 2019 (II) – Celebrations And Limitations

The premise is very simple - use just one camera for a whole month. Perhaps easy for some, but as hundreds of cameras have passed through my hands… Continue reading One Month, One Camera – March 2019 (I)
