How was everyone's week? The weather in Southern Oregon couldn't make up its mind… in mid January! It got up to 68° on Wednesday! Spring almost came early this year, but the harsh winter cold came back with a wet, soggy vengeance that had us going back inside to the studio. Yes, your eyes are not tricking you. There were only two actual shows this week. Monday, Joseph showed off his favorite lens in his collection: The Panasonic Leica Nocticron! He showcased some of his favorite shots taken with it. Moving onto Wednesday, Joseph changed things up. Instead of a tech tutorial, it was a makeup for men tutorial… specifically, on-camera makeup. Knowing how to use all of these fancy cameras would be for nothing if the subject matter doesn't look good, right? Friday's show got lost in the dust behind Joseph's car. He's up in Portland, OR right now having a vacation weekend with his son. While it looks like there wasn't much this week, we kept ourselves busy in the studio. As always, we are continuing to evolve the show, and much of this week was spent devising plans… and plans for plans.

We hope everyone had a great holiday season. You can catch us on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 9:30am PT for the LIVE Photo Moments.

Let's jump into the LUMIX Lens Lineup. The Nocticron is, understandably, one of my favorite Panasonic lenses for LUMIX cameras. Let's see some photos and talk about the gear!

You're a dude... so you don't wear makeup, right? Well, if you're going on camera... you should. I'm not talking about eyeliner and blush. But a little bit of care (seriously, it takes half a minute) and you can knock back that oil slick on your forehead and before you step in front of the lights.
