  • Louis, you have a very good memory. My brother lent me his F3 and 28mm f/2.8 several years ago. Alas, he gave it to me for only a three month loan and true to his word, took it back once the ...
  • Thanks, Alex. I don't have the EVF or any T-mount lenses, and rely primarily on the depth-of-field markings on the m-mount lenses for focussing. One trick is to set the jPegs for high contrast ...
  • Expose for the chocolate, and let the vanilla take care of itself! :) A lot of good points above as to the benefits of using film. Another that goes fairly much unnoticed is the beauty of really ...
  • Thanks very much, Casper. Welcome to the Leica forum!
  • Thanks, Louis. Learning my way around colour management and processing is a real lesson in patience. Only recently have I discovered the power of Lightroom's hue sliders as a way to massage the ...
  • Thanks, Kostas; I'll direct you to my album in my DPR galleries, that you can see just how much fun shooting an event like this is. It was a pleasant surprise to discover that the convention ...
  • Haha! Ok, so with the tree I was taking a stab. How about looking at it as a visible manifestation of the knots the masseuse is about to work out of the mannequin? Since the mannequin is made from ...
  • Replied in Helping
    I love the humour; a machismo soldier needing help with his socks! Also, the stoical expression of the guard in the face of his embarrassment at being captured by you makes it even funnier. There ...
  • Created discussions Toronto Comicon, 2015
    A well attended annual convention in Toronto, and the first visit for me. There must be something to the fact that it comes along almost exactly 6 months after Hallowe'en! Zeiss 21mm Biogon, Canon ...
  • Thanks for your critical comments, Paul; this is much appreciated. Concerning the mannequin picture, there is the doff to surrealism with the dream-state, the irrationality of the situation, the ...
  • Whenever our advice is solicited, there is a tendency to recommend whichever lenses we have, or have used. This isn't of much benefit to you...unless responders have used all of the lenses you list. ...
  • Thanks for your comments, everyone. Garry Winogrand said that his goal was to become transparent as the photographer, by which he meant he wanted his "hand" to disappear from the picture. I tried ...
  • In this alternate universe the incident angle of a reflection is equal, yet laterally inversed. The hunter Narcissus is about to fall in love with himself. I think it's the ears.
  • Created discussions Anna Perenna Feast Day
    Toronto, Ides of March, 2015 Zeiss 21mm Biogon, Canon 580Ex, Rayflash ring adapter Comments and criticisms welcomed.
  • Quirky, dramatic and inventive. All over the world red means stop, and green means go; there is still hope for this waiting, resigned man. By the way the light falls on the subject from overhead, ...
  • There is a fascinating video dealing with Sally Mann's approach to photography: http://watchdocumentary.org/watch/what-remains-video_fe114b6df.html Within at roughly the halfway mark, is a reveal ...
  • Ah, then I did incorrectly assume you thought emotion and narrative didn't exist within the photograph. This somewhat changes the path of my inquiry. Nevertheless, thanks again for your considered ...
  • Thanks. In your definitions of emotional content and narrative there is the emphasis that they reside in the reaction, response and imagination of the viewer to the photograph. If I take your ...
  • This certainly is strange, because what I wrote in the last sentence (above) agrees with your position! Where or how do I state it otherwise?
  • There is quite a historic debate as to whether or not a photograph contains narrative and emotional content. When the photographer presses the shutter, it's argued that he does so only in response ...
