The Voigtländer Holy Trinity

28mm has just arrived on the block!

Now after some deliberation, I have finally made the jump to owning the Voigtländer 28mm F2 Ultron. Along with the 50mm F1.5 Nokton as well, and my tried and true 35mm F1.7 Ultron, I now have the trio of lenses perfect for all kinds of rangefinder-style work, from dynamic street scenes to quiet, focused portraits.

Leica Day

I’m now shooting on a Leica M Type 240 with a Summarit 35mm f/2.5 lens. The Fujifilm X100s has been such an inspiring camera for me and upgrading to a modern digital Leica has really cemented what photography is to me these days. It’s about taking pictures with an enjoyable camera, and the Leica M lives up to expectations and exceeds them.

The images have huge dynamic range and lots of detail but feel perfectly familiar using VSCO’s Ilford HP5+ processing.

New Year Musings

I’ve been rather quiet on the photography front lately, mainly due to time off and relaxing for the last few weeks, though I’m dying to get back on the streets and take some more photographs.

When you’re not taking pictures, it’s easy to start thinking about gear. I’ve been fascinated with the Leica M Edition 60. All the mystery of shooting on film with the facility of digital files at the end of the day.

I think I need to get back to shooting before I get carried away…


Got together with some of the guys and talked photography. Cameras everywhere…

I thought these three pictures were a bit funny…

I like to experiment with capturing things in motion.

The motion in this picture makes me feel dizzy. I’ve always been fascinated with motion blur in stills and how it can make you feel by simply viewing it.
