Leica M9 with 35 Summicron ASPH "smellin the coffee"

July 14, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This morning i was out on assignment to shoot a local coffee roaster and I dragged along the M9 to go with the Canon 5D Mk3 with the 24-70 L attached. I used the 35mm "Cron" as it's a great lens for this type of work and it did not disappoint. The Canon rig is a beast even with the lighter 5D  Mk3. The M9 with the 35 is light as a feather compared to the beast weighing down my shoulder. I did my standard stuff with the Canon rig and then started to look for something different with the M9. The exposure was done manually as both cameras wanted to over expose things so I switched over to manual on both cameras. Most of these M9 shots were done wide open at f2 with the shutter speed at 1/125s at ISO 1600. The Canon allowed me to go way further than that but I kept it at 3200. It was interesting to learn how coffee is roasted before it is used for coffee. The average temperature for this particular company is around 425 degrees Farenheit.

This is my favorite shot of this group. I converted it to B&W because of the nice contrast difference.

The roaster adjusts the roasting machine to get the right amount of air into the roaster.
