Babes And Betty’s Burlesque Show Shot With A Panasonic GH2.


We have been working with Misa Garcia for over a year on these great burlesque shows that he puts on under The Whistle Bait moniker. The bar where a lot of these events take place has changed ownership and this was our last shoot there. We typically shoot a few interviews prior to the live shows. I wanted to test out the Panasonic GH2 and the Lumix 7-14mm f4 lens under low light conditions and this was a perfect place for it. I decided to use the Glidecam HD2000 to add a little motion. The Panasonic GH2 and 7-14mm f4 combo was light as a feather on the Glidecam. The f4 was a bit too slow for the dark interiors of the Bordello bar. It did work quite well in lit areas. I was very impressed with the overall image quality of this camera and lens combination. The event was sponsored by Pin Up Girl Clothing and Lucky13 Apparel. A big Thank You to Misa Garcia for letting us be a part of this killer genre. Here is just a little glimpse of what these shows are like. Dig it.

About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
