4K Photo and Video— what’s all the Buzz about?!

The topic of Video has been a hot one these days, but the recent 4K video tools from Panasonic are a game-changer for the Still Portrait photographer! Using 4K video, you can capture amazing action shots- at 30 frames per second- and still pull a frame for great looking wall portraits! Suzette Allen, Lumix Luminary will be showing you how to utilize 4k video for portraits, and also showing some 30” and 36” prints that will surprise you! Using a Panasonic Micro 4/3s mirrorless camera, and a little imagination, she has revolutionized her photography and style, embracing hybrid and video in some fresh new ways (and products)! Check out this informative program and see what is in it for YOU-the world of Hybrid never looked so good!! And it is actually soooo Easy!
