Film Friday with the Leica M7 and Noctilux F/1 By John Tuckey

Film Friday with the Leica M7 and Noctilux F/1 By John Tuckey Hi Brandon, hope you're well. Hands down, most of what I shoot is digital. But I always make an effort to shoot film ‘in between'. I frequently screw it up, but that's the point. I believe that screwing it up with film makes me a better digital photographer as well. Especially in the case of B&W which I insist on developing myself – double jeopardy, double dust! Anyway, here's just a few shots to share from a recent shoot with the lovely Frankii Wilde. Bar one, these shots were taken on an M7 with a Noctilux f1 at f1.4, the film...

Daniel Maissan: Photographing with a Focus on Social Causes

Q: Let me say, I love your blog. Do you think nowadays a blog is useful for a professional photographer? Also, is your blog a part of the activity to present your vision and your work as a photographer? A: I think a blog is useful for any type of job. It's a way to share what you do and how you feel. It's a way to get noticed and have the occasional ego boost every human being needs. You can share your visions, your pictures and your struggles. Also I think it's nice to inform and help people when they have questions about what you do. I didn't do a course or go to a school for photography;...

Georges Yammine: On Tour with a Violin and a Leica X Vario

Georges Yammine from Lebanon is not only a professional musician but also a “travelling photographer,” as he likes to call himself. Among other ensembles, he plays violin with the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra and with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra under the baton of Daniel Barenboim. In addition to his violin, he also always takes a Leica when he goes on tour — usually an M6 or an M9. For this project he exchanged the M for a Leica X Vario. Q: What came first: photography or music? A: I started out with music. My interest in photography developed over the years, in part thanks...

M240 NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY By George Sutton

M240 NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY By George Sutton A recent post showed some photos taken with an M240 in New York at night. It generated a lot of comments, some quite snarky. There appeared to be a problem with skin tones and many commenters declared the camera useless for shooting under artificial lights while declaring their Nikons, Canons and Sonys would do a much better job. I own both a M240 and a Canon 5DIII with Canon's best L lenses and my experience has been very positive shooting both cameras at night. The only difference I see is slightly better star effects from the Leica lenses, which may be due to the absence...
