  1. I wander around my home city of Glasgow a fair bit. I always have either my Leica M Monochrom mk1, or an analogue M loaded with black and white film with me. I think that finding interesting photographs on the street is pretty much the hardest type of photography. But when you do get something, it's very rewarding. What does anyone else think/find? A few pictures I've got around Glasgow with my M cameras..
  2. It is that time of year again when one of the local universities holds its graduation ceremony. I captured this scene of a couple of students making their way to the ceremony in the obligatory mortarboard and gown. Leica M240 + 50mm Summicron-M f2. 1/2000 f3.4 @ 320iso Gerry
  3. Children look at each other out in the city with their parents. Leica M240 with Zeiss 50mm Sonnar f1.5. 1/180 f8 at 320iso. Gerry
  4. Two men share tobacco at a street food bank in Southampton, England. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit f2.5 processed in LR Classic. Gerry

    Marrakesh

    A few from our recent holiday to Marrakesh in Morocco.
  6. I am so pleased that another step towards normality has happened, and I can again sit and drink coffee at my favourite cafe Mettricks Guildhall in the centre of Southampton. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 Gerry
  7. Like so many I am in a lockdown situation, and as a safeguard I have not ventured out for many week because of my age and heart condition. Those around me are keen to keep me a live for some reason! 😄 I have therefore been exploring the home environment, and also exploring my under-used 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH. Here is one from my garden which was taken with the Elmarit on my M240, and then converted to black and white in Lightroom CC. Technical details are 1/90 f8 @ 2000iso Init is pretty dark under the oak tree). Hope you like it! Gerry
  8. from the rumor site 近日中に発表される「ライカM10モノクローム」の画像。(M10-Pとの主な外観の違いはレンズ着脱ボタンの色と上面の筆記体ロゴの有無)
  9. It was great to finally be able to get out to my favourite cafe yesterday and drink coffee with a friend I haven't seen since Christmas. I have been having problems with my knee and have found walking almost impossible but thankfully I am just using one stick now. This is one image I grabbed whilst sat outside the cafe in the beautiful sunshine Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit f2.5 Gerry
  10. I've been working on a series of early morning cityscape images, mostly with my previous camera, a Fuji X100v, now, with a new Leica Q2 inhand and with a renewed enthusiasm I'm back on the early morning hunt. This is scene from a small industrial estate is my first with the Q2.

  15. I managed to get out today for a short walk in the town centre, and sat next to this lady whilst drinking my coffee. She was engrossed in the book and didn't notice me. Taken with my Leica M9 with the 24mm Elmarit f2.8. Gerry

    The Copiest

    I took this in the Louvre in Paris in 2002. I have just scanned it to add it to my archive. The camera was certainly the M6 and probably the lens was the 35mm Summicron I had back then. It was taken on Agfa Vista 800 colour film, which I have no rational explanation for now because I can't imagine me ever using it. The grain is pretty big, but through judicious use of LRCC I think I have gotten away with it at this size, or at least I hope so! I do like the result. Gerry
  18. Good morning, This weekend I was in the lovely little town of Leamington Spa which happened to be hosting the 38th annual peace festival. The place was full of interesting characters so I stepped out of my comfort zone and asked a few if I could take their portrait. Feedback is welcome. All taken with my M9 and 50mm Summarit.

  19. I'm starting a thread for anyone who would like to create, and share full color images by shooting three black and white photos of the same subject. The technique is called Trichrome Photography, and it was used to create the first color image in 1861. Here's some early examples http://tricrhomephoto.tumblr.com/ Creating a color image from three black and white photographs is done by using a different color filter in front of the lens for each exposer (Red, Green, and Blue.) When those three black and white color records are combined, a full color image is created. Today, the easy way to combine those three black and white color records, is with Photoshop. The highest quality Trichrome images are produced with a tripod, and a still object. However, interesting color effects can occur if there's movement between exposures. This technique can be done on film or digital cameras. As much as I consider myself a film enthusiast, I think the best black and white color records will come from Leica digital Mono cameras. Of course, Leica digital color cameras can be used, however they have a filter in front of the sensor to create color (possibly reducing detail.) Leica mono cameras do not have this filter, therefore possibly increasing the amount of information being recorded. With film cameras, the process is a bit more involved. There's the choice of what black and white film to use (slowest speed possible is best since three images will be layered on top of each other.) Processing of the film, then scanning of the film. Also, layering the three black and white color records together in a program like Photoshop may not be as precise, depending on the quality of the scans. The following link shows examples of Trichrome Photography today https://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/trichromes The following link shows a Trichrome created with a M6 http://www.pirate-photo.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?t=820 And a Youtube video on how to stack the three color records into one shot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S28OUlavAvg The idea to start this thread came from two books I'm currently reading. "The Dawn of Technicolor 1915-1935," and "Technicolor Movies; The History of Dye Transfer Printing."
  20. Whilst waiting to get my hair cut I decided to take a few photos, mainly to use up a roll of film. The barber and his customer kindly gave permission. Taken with Leica M7 and 24mm Elmarit f2.5 using Ilford Delta 400, scanned and post-processed in Lightroom. Gerry

    "An animal for sale is paraded in front of prospective bidders whils the auction takes place. Taken at the Southern Counties Auctioneers ring near Salisbury, Wiltshire." Taken on my Leica M7 using the 35mm Summarit f2.5 and Fuji Neopan 400CN film. Post processed in Lightroom. I hope you like it! Gerry
  22. Good morning, From time to time I like to give myself a project to try and enhance my craft and keep me interested. This year my project is street portraits. It definitely puts one outside of one's comfort zone. My approach is simple, I look around for interesting characters, approach them and ask can I take their portrait. I have only been declined once (a nun who was praying) it is disappointing but important to respect this even when it means missing a fantastic shot! Most people are actually really happy to be asked, I like to chat a little whilst I am shooting to set people at ease and get more relaxed photos. People have even thanked me for taking time to talk to them which is really nice. I always show them the shot after on the LCD and tell them my website address to see the image later. I'm thinking of having some business cards printed to make this easier. I like to shoot wide open to get separation. One of the staff at Leica Store Manchester gave me the tip of focusing on the eye then moving your head slightly back and forward to find focus rather than use the ring (I'm sure people already know this but i thought it was a good tip). I like to shoot half a dozen frames whilst doing this to ensure focus is on the eye not slightly out. Though I do sometimes miss shots still and kick myself afterwards Anyway, here is one from a rather wet day in Kendal in the Lake District UK Street Portrait Kendal by Robert Michael Poole, on Flickr C/C always welcome. Thanks for looking Rob More street portraits can be seen on my website here: https://robertpoolephotography.com/portfolio/street-portraits/
  23. Inspired eye by Robert Michael Poole, on Flickr Well, today was a proud day. The first time my photos have been published! Over the summer I took some pictures of the St Gerassimos day parade in Kephalonia, Greece and they have been picked up for publishing on the Inspired Eye street photography blog and magazine. If you haven't read the magazine it is online only and a fantastic read (you can pick up a free copy on their site). The pictures were all taken with my Leica m9 and 50mm Summarit which I picked up before summer and this was my first proper outing with it. Needless to say I was very impressed!
  24. Here are a few images I captured in a harbour in Kephalonia. The loggerheads turtles feed off the scraps thrown by fishermen and one of the only permanent colonies of the migratory sea turtles. All of these are taken with my m9 and 50mm Summarit. Not underwater though some look like it!

  25. Taken whilst walking through Brugge (Belgium) shortly after a rainstorm using the M9 and 35mm Summarit f2.8. I hope you like it!
