    Never had formal training. Here are some picture I took on a recent trip to Iceland (with a used Lumix LX2) and loved. I would appreciate any critique.

    Like your pics taken in Iceland[​IMG], did you travel a lot during your trip?

    I've taken some pics of this church my self,

    NR- 50 summilux pre-asph (i found i prefer non-asph for portraits - along with a pre-war summitar) and, yes, the m8 (though i use the m6 as well). I picked up the m8 when we had our daughter 6 months ago (the pic is a friend's son), but i am missing film.

    your pic is beautiful as well (i spent a little time in camden - not sure if it's close to bailey island), i've been wanting to get a wider angle than my 28, and your 21 shows why.

    please post more pics - we need more leica folks on here (especially the presence of an mp shooter).


    I agree about the pre-asph 50 Summilux for portraits. It has an almost magical 3-D effect with a sort of shallow bowl-shaped field of focus. Here are some street portraits I've shot with the MP and 50 Summilux.

    Same as above.

    I really like the shallow depth of field on these portrait shots. Back in the day when I was using a film camera I had a Canon 50mm f1.2 lens that was awesome for portraits. These days the closest thing I've found that shoots really shallow are the Zeiss 85mm or 135mm at f1.8. Really nice glass but are they expensive.

    I've been mulling over shooting some film again. There are just some things that turn out better with film not to mention it requires much more thought to get it right. Ahhh the good old days of shooting real color IR. I digress.

    The shallow DoF in that light was made possible by shooting ISO 64 and 25 (ah, Kodachrome!), which allowed me to shoot wide open at 1.4. Wide open is where Leica glass like the Summilux really shines.

    I have long coveted the Zeiss ZF 85 1.4 for my Nikons, but have so far not talked myself into parting with $1k for it.

    As for film, 2010 is Kodachrome's 75th birthday and the last year it will be processed. I have enough in my fridge to shoot 9 rolls a month throughout the year.

    Another street portrait on Kodachrome 64, this time with a Leicaflex SL2 and 90 Summicron.

    Just stumbled across this thread. Love photography, but haven't done any for a few years. Hoping to start again after I get my bsc. [​IMG] [​IMG] Nikon FA, kodak 200 iirc, 35mm, processed/developed by myself.
