  1. Dear all, First of all let me tell you that I am very new to this forum and even to photography in general. I bought my first camera in January (Fuji X-E1) and, as soon as I completely fell in love with B&W photography, decided to acquire my very first rangefinder in September. Now I just completed my first project, a documentary of the daily lives of our elderly in a retirement home. I would be so grateful if you could take a brief moment of your time to give me some feedback and share your thoughts and advise with me on how to improve my photography skills. Unfortunately I wa
  2. Hi there, new to the forums here, please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong section. I have been looking for a good 28mm (near 35mm equiv.) lens for both IR photography and B&W once I sell my full spectrum modified Olympus. After researching a while I have come down to these three options; Ultron 28/1.9 = Good low contrast B&W, IR?? Biogon 28/2.8 = Not so good B&W (higher contrast) but good IR Summaron 35/3.5 (Not 28mm I know) = Good B&W and apparently good for IR (due to coatings) The Ultron seems ideal for my needs e

  7. these are from Union Square in front of a coffee-bar. After a long walk we neede a break. There I installed my X1 on a Gorillapod and waited for people to pass my prefocussed lens. I tried to catch different types of people.
  8. Just obtained a Monochrom yesterday. I am impressed with the details of the DNG it produced. first few photos, and behold, a huge dust! blow it off and it's perfect again! But just can't believe a camera with 100actuation of shutter have such a dirty sensor! I am blown away by the details this camera can produce. Love it!
  9. caught a little girl lost in the vast arc patterns of the floor. taken with Leica CM, Kodak Portra 400, scanned with Epson V700 (converted to B&W)
  10. Yesterday was a cold, wet and stormy day. What else can one do than looking what's up in the forest. Nobody else thought this being a good idea but I had to go, if you know what I mean. X1 Olympus OMD EM5 Leica/Panasonic Nocticron Olympus OMD EM% Leica/Panasonic Nocticron X1 X1
  11. these days are rih in color and vivid sky panoramas. Our landscape here is slightly hilly, scattered houses and buildings are often spoiling the view. So we always try to find places with calm and undisturbed vantage points. Contrast were high so I tried a series in b&w Canon 5D MKII with Elmarit R 28 mm Canon 5D MKII with Elmarit R 28 mm Canon 5D MKII with Elmarit R 28 mm, polarizer, ND graded filter X1 X1

  14. I'm interested to know what 'recipe' Leica is using to produce their 'incamera' jpgs. In other words: if I were to make my own BW jpgs in LR 4.1 from the imported DNG what BW 'curve' / mix / contrast etc. should I be using to get as close as possible to their incamera jpg. Of course I can try to achieve it by comparing (trial and error) but maybe this is known by some of you and published somewhere on this forum or elsewhere. Thanks in advance!
  15. In digital I always shoot RAW For B&W I used to use analog. Now I'm trying to get good (even better) B&W result with digital. I like the B&W setting on the DLUX5, because I can see and check my pictures in B&W on the screen, but I'm puzzled about developing the RAW images. When I open the RAW they are yellow and it is often very hard to get even the same result as the camera B&W jpeg. Can somebody enlighten me? Is there any advantage in shooting B&W RAW over normal color RAW?

    Desmalgada (x7)

    Some photos to witness the "Desmalgada", a village festival in northern Italy (Brusago, Trentino), where several farmers join down to the valley exposing their cows and goats beautifully decorated to win the prizes. In the occasion they also sell cheese and yogurt and honey... fantastic food! Thanks for looking and c&c welcome!

  19. dear all, This is probably not new to you, but I've spent some time on the web and fora searching for related infos and couldn't find it. Decided to bug your guys here again. Thanks for your patience. A little background: I have used Nikon D300 and Nikon Capture NX for many years. Being the original manufacturer's software, Capture NX gives RAW shooters the full range of settings that match in-camera JPG settings. For example, one could start from the RAW, set the file to STANDARD rendering, and work on it. This is very crucial to my landscape works as Capture NX was the only software

  21. Hi all My first post here, I recently purchased my first Leica and after initial disappointment have quickly grown to love it dearly. I sold my f2 28mm for a f1.5 50mm Zeiss and an f1.4 Voigt 35mm which are both smashing. I have noticed that one some shots a pronounced horizontal striation manifesting above 800ASA on the M9 - are this sensor artifacts? They appear particularly evident when graded for B&W. Please advise! Thanks very much Shane Shane Daly ========= Cinematographer Shane Daly: Home UK +44 7973 445 428 US +1 310 746 6516 skyp

  23. This summer was the project of scanning my grandfathers thousands of negatives, a true timemachine for me. High-sensitive pancromatic is what the film says. I really don't want to hear another whine about cruiseships and uncomfortable landing boats.
  24. A very simple question for experienced digital photographers: I have always taken B&W analogue stills, although, having bought a Leica D-Lux 3 last year, I started using colour photography and Photoshop to process it with, I must confess, a lot of fun. Still, I continue to be in love with B&W. Here comes the question: to obtain better stills in B&W, is it better to shoot in color and shift to B&W with Photoshop, or you get better results starting directly in B&W? Maybe it does not make any sense taking B&W stills with a digital camera, or does it? Thanks fo
