Life With A Lumix Caught Over Coffee

By Marie Jones | Thursday | 11/11/2010

Panasonic has launched its latest coffee table book which compiles winning photos taken with its Lumix line of cameras, by some of the nation's best amateur and professional photographers.

'Focus on Australia' picks 150 of the 7,000 best shots of the nation's heart and soul, submitted in a nationwide competition.

The book also includes images and tips from some of the best Lumix Life Pro Shooters, such as Ken Duncan, Peter Eastway, Bill Bachman, Leo Meier, Nick Rains, Frances Mocnik, Ted Grambeau, Hugh Brown and journalist, Ray Martin.
Ken Duncan, who was also one of the judges, said: "A few years ago, it just wouldn't have been possible to ask amateur photographers to submit photos for inclusion in this type of project and go up against some of Australia's most respected photographers," he said.

 "We were so impressed by the entries to this competition - this book is an amazing collection of all aspects of Australian life and we are very excited by the talent that this competition has uncovered," he said.

Panasonic will use the proceeds from the sale of the book to help fund 'Walk a While', an indigenous arts educational program which gives indigenous youth access to training and technology in photography, film and music.

Journalist Ray Martin said: "Taking great photos is ... about observing and about story telling - with pictures rather than words. The idea behind this book is to show how easy and fun it can be to take fantastic photos of publishable quality with your Lumix," he said.

Some of the winning photographs included cruise boat captain Michael Taylor's shot of a King Penguin rookery on far-flung Macquarie Island using a TZ7; an image from inside the barrel at Sunshine Beach Queensland with a Lumix FT2 from young surfer Casey Ripper; and Lan Nguyen's stunning panorama of rock formations on the Great Ocean Road with an LX3.

'Focus on Australia' is available now throughout Australia in all good bookstores or online at www.kenduncan.com for RRP $59.95.

Winning photographs can also be viewed at at www.lumixlife.com.au/photogalleries
