In this video Marlene goes on a photo walk and tests out the In-Camera Monochrome creative filters of her Lumix GM1. All Lumix cameras have a set of these wonderful creative filters. Learn how to tweak the filters individually too. Pre-process your files in the camera and save time editing. Have fun! #LumixStories

"Skateboarding is JUST about having fun!" Well said Aaron. I have 3 different kinds of boards -- including a long board. All of them are fun!

Got some questions from a student about gear to take along on holidays. His wife wants him to leave the Bronica film camera at home! Ya think? http://www.imagemaven.com/what-camera-gear-should-you-take-on-holidays/
Do you take all your camera gear on your holidays, or do you travel light? What's the best gear to take on holidays?

This is awesome for Calgary! Thanks Erica. See you on April 1st.
Coasting down Calgary streets in skirts and Converse sneakers, female skaters still turn heads, and there’s a community ramping up to help them land friendship, support and advice. Although it’s still in the beginning stages, the girls’ skate club is a concept meant to put lady boarders in Calgary on the map.

Thanks David. I've been skating since 1977, but took a 30+ year break. I started up again two years ago with a neighbour girl. And now getting into the skateparks, because there weren't any when I was a kid. Just hope I don't break a hip ;)

Awesome! And I also love your happy music. Guy's skating vids are so angry and aggressive. Hard to watch. This is a great change!

Hey Frederick and James. Great piece. For the benefit of the newbies out there, maybe you could share the name of the software that James is using to create his #Livingportraits
