Leica M9 with the 35mm Summicron ASPH on assignment

July 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I have been carrying this rig around with me every day and have found an opportunity most days to make some really nice images. One of my assignments this week was to photograph a wood carver that does whales. So I decided to shoot plenty of frames in this mixed lighting conditions. I have not used it much indoors with mixed lighting but today I gave it a whirl and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I am always shooting in raw so I can make minor changes if necessary in post. I also shot with the Canon 5D Mk3 with the 24-70 L and the results were a little different. This camera shoots on the warm side which I like and the Leica shoots on the cool side so matching them up afterward is a matter of adding a little yellow when opening the raw Leica file. I like the color jpg from the Canon - the AWB does a better job. The M9 was set at f2 and the Canon was somewhere around f8.

I purposely shot the Leica images at f2 to add that 3D look to it. This image is tack sharp it's almost shocking. Below is the Canon 5D mk3 image.

This is my standard news shot most everything in the foreground is in focus. I really like the look of this image, yes I love my 24-70.
