The model in this image is actually posing for a pinhole photograph. The exposure was a bit on the “long-ish” side so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to pull out the Leica and expose a few regular images while she was laying about anyway!
Some old chairs that caught my eye while I was walking around town.
I’m still trying to get the hang of using my 50mm Nokton F/1.1. This is an incredibly challenging lens in more ways than one. Not only is the depth of field extremely shallow when wide open, but the lens is also rather large with a very short focus throw. I suppose this is a good thing when trying to focus fast on a moving subject, but it is also a bad thing when your plane of focus is so razor thin.
I'm a photographer, art lover, and pretty much a laid back sort of guy. I live in Portland Oregon, I love nature and all things beautiful, I ride a bike most of the time, and well...that pretty much sums me up!
Oh, and I have a fondness for cats, pugs, and chickens. Can't forget about that.
I shoot a ton of film and a little bit of digital. I'm not going to deny I'm a bit of a camera junkie and I have a passion for collecting cameras just as much as I enjoy shooting with them.
The darkroom is what I consider my zen place and i try to spend as much time under the red lights as I can. They tell me that's where the magic happens and quite honestly I can't dispute that.
