VoyageATL– Art & Life with Lauren Holley
I am honored to be featured by VoyageATLthis month in their “Thought Provokers” series (Downtown Collection). Please take some time and give it a read, especially if you don’t know a lot about my back story, and how I have evolved more as a photographer in recent years…
“I have always used photography in some way when I needed to, but a camera was just one of many tools for creative expression. It was never a central focus for me. Camera gear was just too heavy, too expensive and way too technical for me, making photography just not all that much fun. That was until I discovered the emerging market of mirrorless, micro four thirds digital cameras in 2011-12, which really captured my heart and ignited my passion for photography. So I sold my clunky, heavy Nikon DSLR on Craigslist and used the money to buy the Panasonic LUMIX(G3), and that camera opened up a whole new world for me.”
I predominantly use Mirrorless/Micro Four Thirds cameras and lenses by Panasonic LUMIX & Olympus, and I also recently bought a Sony and have been giving that a try. You can browse all my favorite camera gear on my Amazon Influencer Page, where you'll find links to all of my favorite cameras & lenses from LUMIX, Olympus, and Sony. I edit professionally in Adobe Lightroom & Adobe Photoshop. I post a curated collection of images consistently on my Instagram feed, or you can find even more of my professional photography on Flickr.
