#60 Make Pictures

Madrid – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 In my last two posts I wrote about a trip to Paris with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and a Leica M6. As I compared the results from the two cameras it struck me how different I used them. The X-Pro2 was a camera for documenting what we did on…

#22 I forgot to change the settings

Today I made the classic mistake – I forgot to change the settings in the camera. I usually change the settings to a ”standard setting” as I put the camera down – to avoid this from happening. Usually. Not always. This was the way it was supposed to be. In color! The cherry trees are…

#13 Lenses for the ”M”

Fact ; I haven’t used Leica Lenses. I can’t see how I can motivate the cost, compared to Zeiss and Voigtländer lenses. I am not a professional and I am mostly shooting for my own pleasure. If I tried a Leica lens, I am sure I would be stuck – but as for now I…

#2 My first picture with a Leica

This is my first shot with a Leica. I remember it as it was yesterday – it was taken in the mirror of the mens room at my work (!). The camera was my first M6 TTL with a Voigtländer 40/1,4 and the film was a Tri-X 400. This was my first encounter with a…
