  1. Sharing my short article shooting Paris with classic Leica X1: https://www.juliuspictures.com/blog/2020/11/13/exploring-paris-with-leica-x1 I found this little old camera is amazing. I hope you all enjoy it.
  2. Guys, sharing my mini visual travel of Annecy, France. Taken with Leica ME and 50mm Summilux. Hope you all enjoy it https://juliusyls.com/blog/2021/6/6/annecy
  3. A few images from a recent trip to Liverpool. All shot on a Leica M6, Voigtlander 35mm 1.7 and Agfa Vista Pro 200. img007 by Russell Jones-Davies, on Flickr img008 by Russell Jones-Davies, on Flickr img015 by Russell Jones-Davies, on Flickr raw0002-2 by Russell Jones-Davies, on Flickr raw0031-Edit by Russell Jones-Davies, on Flickr raw0033-Edit by Russell Jones-Davies, on Flickr
  4. After dropping off a friend at John Wayne, I couldn't resist grabbing my camera since I was parked at the end of the runway.
  5. Venice is famous for making masks, tourists and of course water. Here is a tourist (?) bringing all of these elements together. m9, 50mm Summarit Thanks for looking Rob Captain by Robert Michael Poole, on Flickr
  6. Hey, I went to Vietnam this summer and shot a series that was among other featured on the leica camera blog. You can check that out here: http://blog.leica-camera.com/2016/09/25/lounging-in-vietnam/ But of course I shot a lot more than just those few images in the series! So I still had a ton of photos from my trip to Vietnam buried in Lightroom. I haven’t posted any of them anywhere because I couldn’t really figure out how to arrange them in a story that would make any sense. Also most of these photos are a tad too touristy for my taste. But since I still really like them and can’t stand the thought of never showing them I decided to split them up into a couple of smaller sets and post them on my blog - of course fully aware that tumblr is pretty much dead these days. But hey, any place is better than the depths of my hard drive. All photo are taken with a Leica M6 and the 35mm Summicron IV on Kodak Portra 160 or 400. You can find some of the photo already on my blog and I will keep updating over the next few days. Blog: http://lifeon35.tumblr.com/
  7. Hi all, a brief announcement that I’ve just finished work on my second self-published book of photographs. Captured with the M Typ 262 and 28mm Elmarit-M (version IV) during a week’s travels through the North of Italy, the book presents 32 black and white photographs ranging in subject matter from people to places both natural and constructed. I’m really proud of how this project has turned out. The book is printed on thick 170gsm uncoated stock, with the covers being an even heavier 300gsm. The size is somewhere between compact to standard at A5 (210x148mm), which gives each print enough room to breathe without feeling cramped. Also exciting is that, working with a professional printer who works at reasonable prices, I’ve been able to price the book at just £15 + shipping. For those who are curious to know a little more, I’ve written a bit more on the back-story on my blog. You can also watch a trailer that I produced for the book here. Finally, if you’d like to pick up a copy, please slide on over to my online shop to do so. Thanks kindly for your interest, and happy shooting!
  8. Armed with the Leica M10, a handful of US Dollars and my fedora hat I landed in Cuba and made this story and some photos. Enjoy! http://overgaard.dk/Leica-M10-digital-rangefinder-camera-page-02-Leica-M10-goes-to-Cuba.html
  9. I'm on the hunt for a camera to compliment my M7 for travel photography. Ideally, I'd like an M mount body with a shutter speed of 1/2000 or higher. On a recent trip to Cuba, I took with me my M7 body, 50mm Summicron & 35mm Summicron. To compliment that setup, I also brought along a Contax G2 and ended up using it quite a bit because of its fast shutter speed (1/6000) and ability to shoot "wide open" during the day. The problem, however, is having to switch between two different systems. I've since sold the G2 but now own a 35mm Summilux Pre-ASPH and would love to shoot that beautiful lens wide open during the day. I know that I could just buy an ND filter but maybe there is an M mount body out there that would suit my needs? Currently, the Konica Hexar RF seems to be the practical choice. Any other cameras out there that I should consider?
  10. Just a little post to welcome myself to the Leica forum as I am about to become a brand new Leica owner - well, as soon as Leica deliver my M9, that is. I've been a photographer since the late 1970's. My photography is a combination of travel photography, portrait photography and underwater photography. Most of the last 20 years, I have been shooting medium format, most recently a Hasselblad 205FCC with the digital CFV-16 back. Some proud moments in my photography life include: - Center spread in Hasselblad's Focus magazine - Published 20 images on Singapore and Malaysian heritage sites in ASEAN photo book - Published in several travel and underwater magazines - Set up one of the very earliest web-based photo galleries in 1997, and still going... For travel photography, my technique involves getting up with the sun and wandering the streets of whichever city I happened to be in, mainly around Asia, looking for interesting, unusual or attractive things / people to photograph. I would often walk 5 to 10 kms between 6am and 10am. But I was getting weary of lugging around a big camera, heavy lenses and a big tripod, every time I wanted to photograph something. I figured that, one day, someone would make a smaller camera that could produce images of an acceptable quality to my Hasselblad. It appears to me that the M9 is that camera. Over the next few months, I am going to enjoy trying to prove that hypothesis. I'll keep the Hasselblad for "planned" portrait photography. As for underwater photography, do you think I will ever be brave enough to seal the M9 and a wide-angle lens in a housing and take it under the sea? Watch this space...

  11. I have just returned from a week's photography trip up into northwest China. Just took the M9 with 35, 21 and 75 lens and a small Gitzo tripod. The M9 performed perfectly. Firstly and foremost, it achieved my goal of portability. Some days I walked non-stop for 4 or 5 hours, twice a day and, on one day, walked a very mountainous trail. Never once did I find the camera bag / tripod to be a burden. I could not have done that if I had taken my Hasselblad in its backpack. Secondly, the M9 took some excellent photos. I was able to get it into action quickly and capture the image fast and accurately. I am almost at the place when I can call the focal distance, the shutter speed and f-stop first time, every time. Sometimes I manually bracketed with the shutter speed but that was more of an insurance than a necessity. About the only thing that I screwed up was two or three times I forgot to switch the camera on* and once I forgot to take off the lens cap and missed a great shot of the train curving around a mountain. Doh! * I only had 2 batteries with me because Leica seems to now have a supply problem with batteries. On a couple of days I was shooting from early morning to late evening without an opportunity to recharge the battery. On the 2 days with overnight train journeys there was no chance to charge the battery. So, to preserve the battery, I was turning the camera off every time i put it back in my bag. With a 3rd battery I would have left the camera in sleep mode while out and about. The M9 captured some great people images. Sometimes I was able to employ stealth mode* so as not to disturb or distract the subject from whatever they were doing that I found interesting, often taking 3 or 4 photos without the subject being aware that I was photographing them. I also did some "handheld overhead shots" in crowds that would be impossible with a larger camera. No other camera that I know of could have captured those type of images so effectively. * Stealth mode is useful when you know that a subject is going to stop what they are doing or change their facial expression if they know they are being photographed. In stealth mode I: - face my body at 90 degrees to the subject so they don't feel me looking at them, - watch the subject in my peripheral vision, - hold the camera at wasit level and look down at it as if I am trying to change a setting or solve a technical problem, - frown at the camera as if the camera is absorbing my attention, not the subject, - judge the distance and set the focal length, - use a larger f-stop to compensate for any errors is distance estimation (e.g. 35mm lens at f8), - point the camera sideways so that the lens points at the subject, - press the shutter with my thumb. Would I have been happier with a new 39 megapixel Hasselblad CFV? For a couple of the shots, yes. I am sure that the larger sensor of the 'blad would capture finer detail. But, for many of the people shots, the size and presence of the 'blad would have freaked out the subject, whereas the M9 is almost invisible. And, there is no way I could have walked the distances that I did with that kind of weight. Just getting the camera out of the backpack and getting ready to shoot adds a delay that can make you miss "the moment". The M9, in its easily opened Billingham-Leica shoulder bag can be out and shooting in seconds. The quality of the images is great. I can zoom into them and see very sharp details. I have not printed any yet but I am sure they'll hold up well to at least 30x40cm (A3) which the largest that I ever print. So, yep, quite happy with the M9. Now just gotta figure out how to take it underwater... Regards Peter

  13. I was fortunate to spend three days in Havana, Cuba. I took with me a Leica M9 and a 35mm summilux. In the following link, you can see my Havana documentary photography and a personal account of this experience. As I mentioned before, I fell in love with the angle of view of this lens in the full frame M9. I truly think this can be my lens for 90% of my uses. Feedback welcome, as always.
  14. My wife and I were in VA. visiting our friends on their 120 acre spread . This is one of the small ponds on their property just behind their home. The second shot is a day old chicken just hatched. They will keep him as a house pet . My friend John and his with Barbara said they can expect this little guy will be with them for many years to. come.
  15. Apologize to post this late, I was member since 2012 and till recently found my password and login 😅 I wanted to share one of my photograph that won 2nd place the National geographic Travel of he Year 2017 in people category. I shot using Leica ME with 50mm Lux, at Rijks Museum in Amsterdam way back in 2015. I shot twice and the first one obviousely out of focus due to the manual setting, etc.. but the second shot was perfect. I love the visitors expression and lighting that really help this image stand out. I named this shot "Interesting Moment" 😃 Love my ME and the 50mm Lux combination, I never change lens since.
  16. Sharing my short blog about taking Leica ME and Elmarit 28mm across Arctic circle in the middle of winter. Hope you all enjoy it https://juliusyls.com/blog/2020/12/15/across-arctic-circle-with-28mm-elmarit
  17. Since there won't be much travelling this year i thought i share some photo's i made on La Palma early last year. I was there on a photo-trip and brought my ME(220) and MM1 with me. https://www.timotravels.eu/canaryisland https://www.timotravels.eu/volcano

    Kuala Lumpur Part 2

    Following on from my previous post here are some more shots from my KL trip. All taken with my Leica M8 and 35mm f/2 Summicron ASPH. Thanks for your comments on my previous post which can be found here.
  21. Just back from a weekend in Kuala Lumpur for the F1. Took my M8, M6 and R5. Fantastic place for street/people photography. Here are my first few images; all, apart from the first, taken with the Leica M8 and 35mm f/2 Summicron ASPH. The first images was taken with the 50mm f/1.4 Summilux ASPH. I hope you enjoy them.
  22. Well I got some of my films developed today and also have managed to process a few more of my digital images. Still got 3 rolls of film to get through tomorrow. You can view my previous two posts here and here.

  24. Hi, this is my first post. I would appreciate some advice: I'm about to leave for almost a month, going to Bolivia for a leisure trip. I won't be alone, so it's not a trip focusing on photography, but I will definitely use my camera as much as possible. I have a passion for street and documentary style, a little portrait, environmental and not, but I definitely don't disdain landscape! I use a M240: first of all, I'm a 50mm man - that will be the main lens for me. I'm still trying to decide which between the Nokton 50mm 1.2 or the Planar ZM 50mm f2 - lightness or speed? I might go for speed, that Nokton is not that big at all! And a pleasure to use. The other lens I already decided about is the Biogon 21mm f2 ZM, great wide angle; that will definitely be in my bag. Two doubts: 90mm Tele-Elmarit thin or 135mm Tele-Elmar? if I go light, will I miss the reach? I really enjoy shooting both, and both don't see use too often. But I don't mind a little more weight if necessary. Second doubt: should I take my 35mm? I have a wonderful Biogon 35mm f2 ZM but I fear it would see almost no use...although I think i interiors it might be more useful than the 50mm when shooting people! What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance!!
  25. Please feel free to post any portraits of the people you have met while traveling. Do give some back story of the person shown and why and where you took the picture. Looking forward to some interesting pictures and stories! I'll start it off with this one taken in Malaysia. This lovely lady is the eldest of three sisters and she has the ability to enter a trance-like state where she apparently can commune with the spirits in order to help people with whatever problems they may have. She does this only on a personal level, not commercial or advertised as a service of any kind. This is her home, nothing has been arranged for the shot, it is what it is. I'm not a believer, and make of it what you will, but she does bring much comfort to those that come to her and that's not a bad thing at all. M9 with 35mm Summicron mark IV
