LEICA Q for B&W photography

Recommended Posts

Like them all, but particularly like the empty chairs at the sidewalk restaurant.  Very cool...  Nice job, thanks for sharing.  The Q is a magical camera and so much fun to use...

I agree, the night scene at the sidewalk is really nice! Did you use a tripod or high ISO-settings?

 

Thanks for sharing the hint with Silver Efex Pro.

i just placed camera on the flat bar to avoid vibration, shot at 1.7F, ISO 1600 and 1/30 sec shutter speed

Nice shots are you using manual exposure or auto?

 All shots made in manual mode. 

I never use auto mode on Q.  My M9-P was in Wetzlar for repair works, so i took Q for this trip and was trying to use it like M camera.

Beautiful Photos and thanks for sharing! Is Silver Efex Pro and plugin for LR?

Yes, it NIK collection from Google - free of charge now. Before you should pay for this, but now its free. 

Once you download it, its automatically added to lightroom.

All you need is to choose the photo you would like to edit, then click photo on the top menu bar, then press EDIT IN and choose Silver Efex Pro.

Hello Edward,

Thank you for The tip, using Silver Effex Pro for developing bw pictures from the Q. I tried one

One of the Q's finest features is manual focus accuracy with a f1.7 Summilux... not the finest composition but I thought the staple was out of place.

I love shooting black and white in camera because the truth is almost always I prefer the black and white. I also keep the RAW because I just may want the image in color and it lets me mess around with black and white using something something like tonality or the new on1 raw.

I love old machinery and farm equipment.  Just discovered a new location of "junk" to capture in B&W...  Like this ancient wagon wheel
