Film: Kodak Tri-X 400 (pushed +1)
Camera: Leica M7
Lens: 50mm Summicron
One thing I love about my new rangefinder is the size. It's so discrete and I keep a 50mm lens on it, so I only ever bring an extra roll of film. I find myself bringing this camera with me more than usual. Whether I'm taking Bart into the city or grabbing dinner with friends. There really isn't an excuse to not throw this set up on my shoulder when I walk out the door. A lot of times I just use my iPhone for taking photos while on the go and leave my digital gear at home, but shooting a couple frames of film is always a fun way to save a memory!
I fell in love with the shots through the window of my two good friends, Kelsey and Cyndy, enjoying Lavendar Lattes together. I was surprised how well the film handled in such dark conditions. I was pushing the Kodak Tri-X 400 +1 to 800. I love that I can shoot the Leica handheld at such low shutter speeds. I believe the window shots were about 1/20 and of a sec. The photo of my friends, Ted and Aga, were shot at 1/8 of a second. The Leica rangefinder has a cloth shutter which has much less vibrates than a dslr camera, so low light handheld shots are a bit easier.
I'm super excited by the response from you guys! My views keep growing and I can't thank you enough. I should be getting five more rolls back any day and can't wait to share with you guys!
