We're not in Kansas any more, Toto.

For the past seven years I have been taking photos and video with the iPhone as well as photographing for the past four years with my not so trusty Fuji FinePix S2 Pro (which produces the most incredible colours I have seen from a DSLR) – before that it was all film. Though it has been a challenge that I enjoyed, I figured it was time to upgrade to something more professional: the Panasonic GH2. With the #longphoto project I am beginning, I researched far and wide to find the best camera for video. The selling point for me? It was used to film the ultimately gorgeous film Upstream Color.

Below is the first #longphoto I shot using the GH2 with a 14-42mm lens. I'm quite thrilled and excited.

Now, to get more beautiful faces on my list to #longphoto. It's going to be portrait after portrait and I can't wait. Interested in being #longphoto'd? Email me at hello (at) helloerica.com.
