Exposition on documentary vs. creative photographs. The Panasonic Lumix is a good choice for documentary photographs.

During our past trips and photographic excursions we discovered that our photographs fall into two categories – those that document events and those that are created as an expression of art. Of course, there can be and there is considerable overlap between the two but each style requires very different equipment considerations. It is difficult to be spontaneous with large camera bodies and lenses. Everyone has photo albums full of birthday parties, anniversaries, and celebrations, all documenting good times and milestones. Rarely are these photos taken with bulky gear and big lenses, and almost all are unpublishable and hastily taken. But in the end these are the ones we cherish the most, pictures of loved ones we may have lost or from whom we have become estranged, pictures of us in joy and celebration.

The Lumix came in very handy for occasions like an impromptu dinner with friends at Cha Cha Cha, a fundraiser for the Steampunk steam house, a stroll to the City Lights bookstore, and the dusty environment of Burning Man.

The Lumix is a little bulky for a slim point and shoot but it offers a lot of creative control for such a small camera.
