I'm returning somewhat to shooting with film these days, ( having in recent weeks avoided the temptation of a M10-R and bought a new M-A instead ), shuffling through some older catalogue of work and found this Leica M2 shot from 1967 for a German magazine of that time, ( TWEN ). Tri-X, 90mm Elmar so the notes report, much else I don't remember except the model's name, hard to forget that.

Love to shoot this lens/film combination. Is it Frösön in the background? :))

Übersetzung zu Schwedischer Sprache, genau gleich was is soeben auf Deutsch geschrieben habe! 

F´låt att jag skrev på tyska i bara farten...jovisst är det Frösön, bilden tagen nära Tkorsningen Kyrkgatan/Gränsgatan, om du är bekant med Östersund.

Leica M4:an med Super Angulonen 21 mm 3,4 - min favoritkombo!!

Vielen Dank Börje, habe ich doch gut verstanden. Und Östersund kenne ich auch. :))

I have been playing with this photograph for years... It has been just a difficult photograph to pull out, as there just isn't enough in the facial area to make this pop. ...But so far, this is the best I can do..... jim

A little mystery can be a good thing.  The lines on the temple are a strong indication of what the rest of the face would feature.

I hadn't made any photographs with my Leica M4-2 for quite a long time. But my recent obsession with all things "instant film" caused me to pull out the M4-2 and the Instant Magny 35 back that was produced a couple of years ago. 

I had to re-learn which lenses worked well with it ... Color Skopar lenses have too small an exit pupil and create a lot of vignetting. The three lenses I've tested and really like how they work are the Voigtländer Hyperwide 10mm seen in the photo above, the Pentax SMC-L 43mm f/1.9 Special, and the Minolta Rokkor-M 90mm f/4. I haven't had a chance to re-test the Summilux 35mm, Summicron-M 50mm, Hektor 135mm, or Summarit-M 75mm lenses yet. ... most should work pretty well too. By and large, lens openings larger than f/4 don't work very well, with too much corner and edge drop off. 

Given the effects of the light pipe and enlargement, the ISO 800 Instax SQ films are best rated at ISO 50 to 25, depending on the lens match to the device. The 10mm shows a good bit of light falloff but the result is very pleasing; the 43 and 90 illuminate the frame quite evenly. 

I shot through a pack of color and another pack of B&W film. I like the results…

Fun stuff! :D

I'm really pleased with the performance of the M4-2 and the Instant Magny 35 despite how clumsy it looks (and is ...!). It proves to be quite a nice bit of fun to shoot with. 

Of course, now I need to put some 35mm film in it and go out for a shoot… LOL!

How to upload images:

Prepare the image as follows:
1.   The image should be sRGB and 8-bits
2.   Reduce the size to 2480 pixels on the longest side. (smaller sizes can be set, but are not recommended)
3.   Sharpen properly for screen.
4.   Save as JPG to your desktop, reducing JPG quality to produce 1000 kB (2000 kB for sponsoring members).
5.   In Lightroom these parameters should be set in the Export dialog.
6.   In the Forum posting or editing box, click “choose Files” and select the image.

It is also possible to embed an image through linking, but the  embedded image must still fall within the forum size rules above. There is also the risk of a broken link when the image is moved or deleted on the other site. Not recommended.

When you find an image on the forum you see a preview. Click on it for good quality. When the plus symbol appears click on it for full size.

I used to be able to link files from flickr to here very very easily and very reliably using BBCode instructions. Now this is a total PITA ... The result is that I only rarely post any photos here anymore. :(
