Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Pedro in NYC

The 28m fixed lens on the Leica Q is really super for getting those wide angel street shots. It pulls in a lot with the full frame with some distortion around the edges, which looks cool on these black and white shots.

But this same distortion makes the 28m generally not a portrait lens. But if you keep the subject in the center of the frame then crop it down slightly, I think it works just fine.

Pedro is looking good in the above image. The Leica Q is turning out to be my new go to carry camera. Shot at 28m, 1/250 sec, F 3.2, ISO 3200 natural light.

Pro tip: I need to check out a 4x8 custom back drop like this one from Oliphant, very cool.
