Mitch - you say nothing special, but I disagree. Those are great!


Katie, thanks, glad to hear this. The M-Monochrom is a great camera; I like not having the choice of B&W vs color when I go out with it; but I'm having "cultural shock" after shooting color with the M9 since February, particularly the fluourescent-lit Bangkok night shots. Also, it's funny how some days when you go out you see shots everywhere, while other days it's a struggle...

zhangye, please tell me about the processing of the shots in p.783 #19. I like the mood of the first one, in particular.

Mitch, the light is more important than any PP I had. I notice the interesting lighting and asking my wife for a pic, after a two hour snorkeling, we all very tired, and you can see from her eyes. I screwed exposure because of back lighting there. On post, I have to +1.7 exposure, +10 contrast, -35 highlight, +75 shadows -25 white, +15 black. +5 Clarity, 0 vibrancy, -8 saturation. I tweaked tone curve, have it almost linear but bump mid-tone to have better face exposure, and have a small S curve at shadow area to have some contrast in left spectrum.

I did touch HSL extensively, but all based on experience and my like, I can't even repeat what I do , basically, shift red hue to orange, yellow to green, green to greener, blue to aqua, purple and magenta to red, and reduce saturation on most of them.

sharpening is very minimal at 25 1 25 and 0. I did add strong vignette to highlight my subject here. and add Grain 20 25 40, I prefer it on non-landscape stuff now to add some imperfection and atmosphere. That is it.

Basically, I know I will like the pic before even click the shutter or process it as I have known what it will looks like in my mind. I feel this is a must for photographer to visualize the pic first before even take the camera to eyes. Even for looks random street picture, I feel photographer should analysis the street, element, lighting first, and wait for right moment and right people come in. with experience, this could happen within sec.

My pp skill sucks compare many people here, as I know very little PS, this has prevent me creating image I really want sometime, but with the limit time I have, I prefer keep shooting

A few more with 50lux

zhangye, interesting. Thanks for the explanations.


I mentioned earlier that I've just picked up the M-Monochrom again after shooting color exclusively since end-February when I got the M9 and was so taken with its color rendition; and that I'm trying to formulate a concept for a project or series to shoot with the M-Monochrom, since I feel that I "see" much more when doing a project. That made me go through my old shots with this camera, of which here is a selection of the ones that I like the best.

Michael, a lot of great photos from Kauai
Mike, the b&w is my favorite in your set.

Charles - You're making great use of the 21 SEM...keep it up. The third shot on the post above is excellent. Not having to use a VF with the new M seems like a real plus.

Mitch - really like the last set, particularly #1 & #8

Michael - great couple of sets, the crab shots on this page really stick out. great coloring

I'm pretty sure there are few modern cameras as ill-equiped as a Leica for *wildlife photography, yet somehow that's exactly the scenario that occurred during today's work.

*the term "wildlife" used generously in this instance

Sidenote: Zebra spit is surprisingly easy to clean off of lenses.

Charles - Fantastic two sets! Love the wide angle look you are getting - colors are superb!
Mitch - More fantastic B&W work.
Ryan - you make Disney look interesting and I have NEVER wanted to go. Seems like lots of work and no reward. And expensive!
Mike - well, for the worst wildlife setup, you've done a great job. Love the PP you've done! The giraffe shot is my fav!

It has been a while but do follow and enjoy the great images.

Peter- Always enjoy your use of the Summicron 90 f/2 for landscapes.
Tri – I have not been to Disneyland in 25 years, trying to convince my wife to go so I can use my M9.
Katie – Your small town series is gorgeous with the golden light
Mitch – Your Paris Monochrome images helps to see the strength of the camera and black/white. No. 1 of the café is my favorite.
Charles – Your use of the 21 SEM has made me miss my Canon wide angles.

I recently went to the LA Leica store to try the 21mm and 24 mm lens. I know the Lux versions would allow me to use them in my gardens and museums photos but the price tags are a little high. I really wanted to test the slower versions and especially the 24mm Elmar in an indoor environment by shooting inside the store.

The images are nothing special but I was pleased by the results and have ordered it today, it is possible to use M9 at 800 ISO and with some processing have a decent image.

Picked up an M9-P about 6 months ago and have been trying to become more comfortable photographing people. Apologies in advance for posting so many photos at once. All photos with an M9-P, except the first which was with an X2.

Also, one of the images is mildly NSFW......

Would welcome any feedback, in particular on how I can improve my B&W processing (these all processed with LR5).

Thanks.

Thank you very much, Ryan, Katie, Salvaz, and the likes too
Ryan, very nice captures from Disney! The LV with the M240 is a hidden gem with WA's. I know Ron, does not even need an external VF to be able to compose shots with his 21mm!!! For me, I am lost trying to compose WA angles without an accurate VF, and now LV is a great bonus.
Mike, wonderful images, and love the deep rich colours!
Salvaz, congrats on the 24 Elmar. Personally the 24mm is more my favourite as it is easier to compose shots.
Allan, excellent portrait
Jud, awesome street shots!!!

Thanks Charles. The Mrs and I went out for dinner earlier. We were walking back to the car and this guy saw my camera and commented. I asked if he would let me take a real fast portrait or him. He said sure so I did. He told me he to was a photographer and an artist. He made the hat band on his hat and I would assume his jewelry though that is not confirmed. I take my MM almost everywhere I go.

I know I promised no more hiking pics but we went out on another great hike last Saturday.... If you look close enough, those dots on the lake (in the first pic) are canoe's.

Congratulations to Mike Villa and his wonderful article in Steve Huff’s blog, “Going on World Tour with Leica, Voigtlander & Nikon”. I have been on Mike’s website and learned about the work he does with “Life without Limbs” which is discussed in this article. Plus we see more of his photos with his his Leica M9.
