Angie Miller of American Idol promotes her new album - Photographs with Leica M9 & Sony Nex-7

October 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday I had the opportunity to photograph Angie Miller of American Idol fame in a local coffee shop in her home town. This was a bit different than the last time she was around which was crazy. This time only a few people recognized her and asked for a picture or a autograph. I decided to photograph her as she was talking to our reporter with cameras that were as intimate as possible. I pulled out the Leica M9 and the Sony Nex-7 which were perfect for this assignment. I used all Leica glass the 35 Summicron, 50 Summilux and the 90 Tele-Elmarit. This combination worked out really well as the 50 became a 75 1.4 on the Sony with the 1.5 crop factor. This was the go to camera as this was the perfect combo for the tight portraits I had envisioned. Everything was shot wide open and the images really pop. I used the 50 and 90 on the Leica and the 35 a few times. The Sony has a great ISO range so I used it on auto ISO and most of the images were shot at 1600, and they look amazing. The Leica was shot at a much lower ISO at the beginning which had me shooting at a shutter speed of 1/45s so I upped it to 800 and the images are still really beautiful.
