Trying Out a Lumix LX-3

You know, I’ve just bought a new digital camera. Not new actually, I’ve bought it a month ago. This camera’s performance is a little bit shocking me, especially in the color tone. The color tone is unbelievably great, and it’s seems like ‘striking right through your eyes’. Hehe.. But that’s true. And I love the shape of its body, which is looks very very classy classic. Here it is…

Great, isn’t it? But, I bought it not just because I like its looks. I bought it because it has many features that makes me forget that I also have DSLR. Hehe.. This camera had almost all function that DSLR has, such as Aperture Priority mode, Shutter Priority mode, Manual Mode, Auto Focus, Manual Focus, and the two that I love are Macro focus and multiple exposure mode. Usually, a common digital camera has only one aspect ratio, which is 4:3. But, this camera has THREE aspect ratios, which are 4:3, 3:2, and 16:9. Another great thing is that this camera has a very fast lens, which is LEICA DC Vario-Summicron F2.0 24-60mm. It is very rare to see a digital camera that has a big aperture open, which is 2.0. With this big aperture open, the camera will perform greatly in low light condition. Wants to see the result? Here they are…

Those photographs are really captured from my LX-3. I’m amazed of how it can almost replace my D300. Conclusion? I think I am very satisfied with this camera. This camera isn’t just a ‘point and shoot’ camera. LX-3 is the most compact camera ever, with tons of features in it. And this camera makes me wants to capture every moment again. So, wait for my next posts about photography. Hehehe…

Toss With Style

Now, I’ll try to discuss about the photography. Even though I’m not a professional one, i love to capture every moments with my lovely cameras.  But now, i try to discuss something different about photography techniques. Maybe, this technique doesn’t require a lot of photography techniques, such as depth of field, aperture settings, shutter speed, bracketing, and many more. You don’t need any expensive cameras, such as DSLRs to do this technique. You can even use your cellphones’ camera to do this. This technique just requires you to toss your camera with all of your heart. Hehehe…

Thats why this technique named camera toss. You just need to toss your camera. Don’t hesitate to falling of your camera, just use a pillow like the picture above. Usually, camera tossing takes place in a low light condition. Why? It is because camera toss are great in capturing the beauty of lights. Here are some examples of how great that camera toss technique in capturing the beauty of lights.  

 

Those are the examples of how great that camera toss in capturing the beauty of lights. I took those photos from the blog that talk about camera toss, which is http://cameratoss.blogspot.com. There are also photos that i took from http://www.flickr.com/groups/cameratoss.

Camera tossing are also works great in capturing the landscape and another shape of things. Below are the examples of another camera tossing in capturing view besides lights. These photos are also taken from those camera toss sites. 

Here there are…

 

Those great photos are the example of the camera tossing. 

One day, i share this technique with my friends. I show that blog and wondering if i can do that or not. So, he try it just a moment after i showed it to him. He try that with his cellphone’s camera. The result? Hehe.. Of course not. I think this technique requires a lot of experience. We must try and try again. Below, i will show my result when trying camera tossing. 

 

Just that.. Hehe.. I don’t want to show another photos because i still learning this technique. I’m interested in trying this technique because its fun to learn. Even though a patience is a must in learning this technique, it’s still fun to learn. My friend, Reno Nismara (http://indomiejunkie.wordpress.com), also attracted to this camera tossing. Below is example from his work. FYI, he used his cellphone’s camera to create these photos.

 

One thing you must remember. All of those photos are not retouched by photoshop. Or should i say, it doesn’t required any photoshop retouched. Because the results are just great, so that we are satisfied enough with the photos. 

So, are you interested in trying this technique? If it’s yes, that’s will be a good decision. If it’s no, you should think about that again. Hehehe… And one thing, this technique is a way better than Lomo. Trust Me!!!
