What We Learned Over One Year With The Leica Monochrom | Tulip Frenzy

See on Scoop.it - thorstenovergaard

The first full day we had our Leica Monochrom — which arrived one year ago this past week — we took the above picture and amazed ourselves.  Not that the photo was so good, but we marveled at the strange fact that, as a lover of deeply saturated color images, we likely never would have processed the picture in black and white; we would have kept it as a color image, and toyed with white balance and tones. If anything, we would have enhanced the color.  And in so doing, we might never have discovered that this was an image that would look better as a black and white print. Over those next, early September weeks, it was as if we had discovered photography anew.  It had been decades since we’d developed black and white images in a basement.  We’d forgotten the joy of not simply capturing the world to see what things looked like as pictures, to paraphrase Gary Winogrand, but to see life transformed into something with more classical resonance.  We went to familiar places and, because we were thinking in terms of luminance, not chroma — light, not color — we could see shapes and patterns that once would have been uninteresting to us, and which now, because we were shooting with a black and white sensor precisely as limited as black and white film, could be seen in literally a different light…….

For the Photographic Interested - A Look Behind - AFTER THE TSUNAMI

See on Scoop.it - thorstenovergaard


Thorsten Overgaard's insight:

I like the smell of film and I like well-designed equipment. And I like to know other photographer’s tricks and workflow. So I thought I would spend a few minutes for those of you who likewise have that interest.

With me to South East Asia I had five of my nine Leica cameras. I mainly used three cameras at the time: The fully manual Leica M4 around my neck (mostly with the 21 mm Leica Super-Angulon-M f/3.4 lens on it for shots like the one at page 24 and in general where I moved in close).

Thorsten Overgaard's insight:

So in short, the Leica S is a workhorse, and it is compact as such. Even sexy. But it is not a great toy because it just does the job. And when it doesn’t do the job it’s because you didn’t know what you were doing, and you will just clutter your computer and workflow with some big files that doesn’t show the sharpness and color accuracy of the Leica S.

jeremyrodneyhall said: i tried the leica m240 in the store and it was wonderful. Should I get it or get the leica m9/p? Also how do you get your skin tones so wonderful in color?

Yes, the Leica M240 is really great. The M9-P is also, so it is basically a matter of money. If you want to take the jump now, or step up to M9-P first and then trade that in later with a M240.

White Balance for skin colors. Manual white balance:

Thorsten Overgaard's insight:

I sometimes - or actually always - find it a little curious when someone is concerned about attending a workshop in the rainy season, the winter, the warm season, or something similar.

I find that unusual conditions are often inspiration and thus the key to taking your thinking to new heights. I can’t recall a single photo shoot where unexpected weather, too late arrival, not enough available daylight, delayed transportation or similar unexpected conditions have not resulted in a good photograph!

Off the top of my head I can remember shooting his Holiness in India at 1600 ISO with a 100 ISO film at night. And photographing Hans Blix in 5 minutes in a hotel restaurant packed with hotel guests.
