Hey there! I'm Val, and you'll find on this website most of the pictures that I took since I got my camera in 2017.

I shoot with a Panasonic LX100 because it's lightweight and compact while still having manual controls for most settings that I care about. It also shoots 4K video which, while irrelevant for this website, is very useful for my YouTube channel.

This allows me to take it with me pretty much everywhere I go without it being a big commitment, and I can carry it strapped around my chest while I hike or walk around without it bothering me, while being able to draw it in a matter of seconds if I need to.

Even though I don't get the quality and versatility that a solid DSLR with a couple of lenses would deliver (particularly zoom length and depth of field), it's still pretty fucking good if you ask me, and the fact it enables me to have a proper camera in my hands in situations where I would likely not have bothered to bring with me a full DSLR setup is definitely worth the tradeoff.
