Yes, looks like a very relaxed atmosphere!

Yes indeed!  I am totally jealous of pretty much everyone out there - they don't have  a care in the world!

Wow Xicara, is the high contrast a result of the 11 min dev time? Im in Brazil too and the best photos are in the favelas and palafitas...not the safest places to be, especially with a nice Leica! And my cara do Gringo... Patrick

Thanks for your remark about the colors, i have to admit guiltily that i goosed them up a bit in LR. Is that bad practice for a film photographer? Im going to print them up and see if the color holds up or looks artificial in large scale. How do you guys print? What textures and levels of gloss and paper colors do you use. (Digital printing, no room for a real  lab in my apartment).

Hi Patrick, my wife is Brazilian and wouldn't let me anywhere near a favela! I see JMF, another gringo here I believe, seems also a little more free in this regard :-). But by the way, did you see that a French photographer was stabbed with a broken bottle on the Copacabana promenade yesterday or the day before by two 14 year olds? He wasn't actually taking photos at the time, or it wasn't reported.

The last black and white of the temple? It was 11"45' I think. The dev chart recommended 13" at 20 degrees but it was a particularly hot morning and the best temperature my water filter would give was 21 or 22, so I cut the time a bit. Cheers,

Hello there,

I live in Rio de Janeiro but do not stroll in Copacabana with a camera ! 

I shot the above photo in 2014 , a few months before the Football World Cup, during a workshop - part of a photography course attended by the local kids  at the City of God - run by  pro photographer Christophe Simon .

Another friend shot this video about it:

Best regards, Jean-Marc.

Yes, and the most important thing, to anyone that visits, is never to react or resist. Keep your head down, ie. don't look them in the eye, and hand over that Leica! The fellow in Copacabana started to fight the boys, which is why it ended badly.

The video looks great Jean-Marc, looking forward to watching it properly later. All the best!

convincing  framing-the high contrast adds to the  quality.

Shoebox, 1999, Making of... Walter Schels -the teacher of a Hasselblad workshop on " People and Portrait " -is coaching one of his pupils and acts as a model . I had the privilege of attending several of his workshops;  he is not only an excellent photographer--have a look at his books-- but also the most gentle, friendly and unvain person I got to know in his field. And last not least- a great storyteller..The one yarn I liked most is the story of how he made the Dalai Lama NOT smile for the portrait.....

Well done Jörg. I wonder  how your Leica IIIf is handling all the sand it is exposed to... 😳

Thanks Klaus,

I try to be careful, when I take photos at the seaside. Most of the time the camera is in my bag, and I do not use it, when it is to windy. So until now the IIIf, and all my other cameras, still work.

Regards
Jörg
