Rainy Day Leica - M9

May 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Ya I know you have all seen this before but I could not resist. It was raining hard this morning on the way to work and the Leica M9 was sitting next to me with the 28 Elmarit V1 so up it came and I made the shot out the window with the focus set all the way to close. It's a heavy crop but interesting to me so here you are. I guess this would be art - right! Either way when you have the camera with you make the shot don't blow it off because it will never be there again.

So I bet you are asking yourself - this guy must be nuts making frames through the window while driving while it's raining. Well yes that's true to some extent. I preset the focus before I left my driveway so all I had to do was lift the camera up and make the shot, no focusing involved. The camera was on auto. I set the aperture to 2,8 before I left and let the camera figure out what the shutter speed was. Pretty simple.
