After my month spent shooting with the Panasonic Lumix G9 I felt quite positive about the experience. Now that I’ve spent more time editing some of the RAW files I shot whilst in Cornwall, I’m feeling even more positive.
Previously I’d reported that I didn’t like the colour of the images and couldn’t seem to achieve quite what I wanted. Now I’m finding I like the colours and results. It’s possibly because I’ve grown accustomed to the colour processing rather than my finding a miraculous solution. That said, there are a few where I still find the colours a little off, but they tend to have been shot near to sunset. Where I’ve been shooting during the day or after sunset, I think the results look good.
Here are a couple daytime shots that I want to share, for no other reason than I like them.
This first shot is another of Godrevy in Cornwall with the lighthouse in the distance. I’m very happy with the colours in this one. They feel clean, crisp, and natural. The Leica 12-60 lens that came with the Panasonic G9 has also done a great job of resolving the fine detail in the scene. The exposure was handheld at 1/500” using f/8 and ISO200.
This next shot is taken at Lands End in Cornwall. I spotted a couple of people on top of the cliff and thought they added a sense of scale to the scene. I also like the softness of the distant lighthouse. This is another handheld shot at 1/320” using f/9.0 and ISO200. Again, it’s using the Leica 12-60 lens but this time at 52mm.
I hope you like the images and have a great weekend.
