panasonic unveils gh5 ii, and the gh6 is on its way

Panasonic has announced the Lumix GH5 II, aimed at vloggers, content creators and filmmakers. The new camera follows in the footsteps of the Lumix GH5, which has proved a huge hit with video shooters thanks to its blend of light weight, portability, high-powered 4K capture and great stabilisation, but which is now four years old – so what can its successor bring to the party? It should be noted that this new camera is not a substitute for the rumoured Lumix GH6, with Panasonic also officially announcing that the GH6 is in development, and will arrive by the end of this year. Panasonic is aiming the GH5 II and the GH6 at two distinct types of videographers. The GH5 II, which uses the same sensor as its predecessor to offer 4K/60p video…

01 shoot architecture

Our cities are packed with interesting and often spectacular architecture, from sleek modern structures to older buildings bursting with character, and you can take a variety of approaches to shooting them, and develop your own style. It’s vital when shooting any building that you explore all the angles – literally – before setting up your camera. Moving in close and pointing the camera up can be effective if you want an abstract effect, or you may choose to stand back from the subject and shoot it head-on for a more conventional result. You also need to take into account the light, and what effect this will have on the image. Strong shadows can be distracting, but you can also use them to your advantage in an abstract shot. 1 THE BASIC…

02 play with perspective

1 NOT ENOUGH SPACE Even when you shoot with a wide-angle lens in the city, there often isn’t enough space to get far enough back to compose your shot – busy roads or other buildings will likely be in the way, and this means it can be tricky to include the entire building in the frame. 2 CONVERGING VERTICALS If you stand close to a building and point your camera upwards, the chances are you’ll encounter perspective distortion or converging verticals. This is where the building appears larger at the bottom than the top, and looks like it’s falling backwards. 3 CORRECT THE PROBLEM One way to get round this is to use a tilt-shift lens, which enables you to move the body of the lens in relation to the sensor, although these don’t come…

03 shoot from above

The city is a wonderful place to shoot from a high vantage point. The integrated streets, passing people and cars, amd painted road surfaces create some wonderful compositions. With many tall buildings and structures open to the public, it’s not hard to find high vantage points to get great shots. Look for shapes and landmarks that are going to look interesting from above. For example, zebra crossings create a striking focal point in this photo by Navid Baraty (www.navidbaraty.com). If it’s raining, umbrellas can also make interesting subjects from an overhead position. TOP TIPS FOR SHOOTING AERIAL IMAGES 1 THE RIGHT LENS When it comes to aerial photography, your lens choice is important – if you opt for a lens that’s too wide, you risk the ground appearing a long way away.
