Once in a while you must switch perspectives in order to see different things and I figured getting new gear always lends itself to experimentation. This is the result of such an experiment and it proved to be an exercise to kick off the old tires as they say.
Finding Randomness Every so often you have major realizations photographically speaking. These realizations can take days, weeks, months, and even years. In this particular case, its taken me 7 years. After 7 years of photographing I finally realized that my camera doesn’t much matter. I was looking at my Lightroom collections and picked a few from various camera sensors – small 1/7, m43, apsc, and full frame and guess what.
Battling the Monster I don’t know but sometimes the desire to photograph just goes away from your main conscious. Then in a fraction of a second your eye captures a frame, focus, and processes it. All that happens instinctively but for that moment you feel great. Well, at least this is what happens to me. I’m always scanning, looking, and once in a while I capture a frame in my mind and so it goes. This week I finally got the irrestible feeling that I needed to go out there and capture something. I felt great and it almost felt like I had never skipped a day photographing. All the old reflexes are still there and my trusty Leica X1 is still rocking it hard. For an older camera, I think the image quality is still up there and it never ceases to amaze me. These folks really figured these lenses out quite well. Leica X1 and processed in Lightroom 6 & Photoshop CS6 See ya.
