Boy, when I first started encountering work done with Leica lenses on the internet, I’d hear about the Leica ‘look.’ After I while I began, I think, to understand what that means. I’m no expert, by any stretch, but it seems to me to be a combination of intensity of color combined with sharpness and bokeh. The images above seem to have it all in spades.
But if the filenames indicate the date shot, then these weren’t done with the Leica.
I’m interested why one needs gloves to open wine.
“But if the filenames indicate the date shot, then these weren’t done with the Leica.”
Actually, scrub that. I get confused with the large timezone shift.
Yeah, timezone shift. Plus at first I had the date set wrong, because I’m a fool.
Also, you don’t need gloves to open wine, unless you… no, you don’t need gloves to open wine even if you’re like me.
I wear fingerless mitts around the house/studio because my hands get stiff and hurt; wearing the mitts and keeping them extra warm helps.
But I don’t wear’em when I’m doing food prep. They’d just get nasty.
I always wondered if anyone paid any attention to the filenames.
I second Chris on the “Leica look”. Are you processing these differently to the photos you’d post from the Canon, or is the difference in look down to the new kit (or hidden option C, is it the new subject and indoor lighting?)
Processing is the same. If you’re seeing a difference it is a combination of:
1. subject and lighting
2. lens and camera
3. confirmation bias
4. all those other variables I haven’t thought of yet
These are great. But at first I thought Google Reader took me to the wrong blog. hah-ha!
Love the mitts. Your photography makes them look stunning!
