Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3
The Panasonic LX3 was probably the first of the really, really impressive premium fixed-lens cameras. It was used in Oblique Exposure from June 2012.
I took what I consider to be my very best three photos with this camera. First, The Reader.
Second, Straight Lines:
And third, Manchester Central Station.
This was also the camera which documented the happiest day of our lives.
Here is a selection of black-and-white photos on the LX3. The classic styling of the LX somehow meant that this became my favourite form of photography.
I loved this camera and took it everywhere. For example, it was one of my tools of choice to go and sit through the launch of Carlos Ruíz Zafón’s book, The Prisoner of Heaven.
Speaking of wide lens, how about this?
I also started playing with light and shade. The LX3’s capacity to capture a wide tonal range resulted in some amazing black and white photos.
Of course, I also used it for closer shots.
All the way into the night…
I dreamed of being wild.
And this is a selection of colour photos.
