Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M?

Greetings to all. These were shot with an M3 with 50 Cron or 85 Nikkor on Ilford FP3 at the downtown street market 50 years ago.

I am so happy to see you posting images from your 85 summarex. I will be posting some from mine tomorrow. This is a very special lens and for me much better than the 90 APO which is certainly a wonderful piece of glass.

Let's all of us celebrate the old Leica looks

Thanks, Woody. The Summarex is magic. I love the OOF rendering.
It is a beautiful lens and mine makes quite a statement on the M5.

Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

kinok1: Did you do some photoshopping on those photos? Very high contrast, low saturation, and grainy - like beach bypass. I like the look, just curious if you played around some either in exposing, developing, or photoshop. Very different from what I've gotten from Portra 160.

CV 15mm and Portra 400NC:

Slight desaturation and a contrast boost in lightroom. I've been a lurker here on this forum for a long time. Love the people and the information. Always good. I've been shooting more and more film both personally and professionally, and a big thanks to Cindy for starting this thread!

kinok1, You are welcome. I had already loaded up my M5 with some Porta 160 before I started this thread. Your beautiful photos have made me anxious to finish the roll. I haven't shot any color for a while.

This is from a camera store in Victoria, BC, Canada in 2004. Probably M4-P and a 35/2 Summicron almost wide open, Kodak ISO 400 film converted to B&W.

Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

Cindy: Thanks for the welcome. I've been here all along enjoying the info, chatter and photos, but haven't posted before. I took these photos when I was much younger. The market was located in downtown, Columbus, Ohio, open on Saturday only, and was quite busy. Many people rode the bus downtown to do their weekly shopping. These were taken with a Leica IIf and Elmar lenses and later, an M3.

Helen: Thank you.


More market photos circa 1960:

















Thanks for looking!

Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

Hi There
Lots of lovely shots - the charm is certainly there.

I had an M6ttl for a few short weeks in 2006 (until the M8 came along). Here are one or two results:









I can't honestly remember which film I was using, but I think they were all shot with the 50 'cron or 90 f2.8

I haven't shot a frame of film since, and despite the attractions . . . I'm not intending to!

Thanks Helen, your enthusiasm is contagious !!!

That lady was shot in Miami at a flea market ... she is a notoriously eccentric "semi-bag lady" with excellent taste for the cast-offs of others. Something we all may become if the ecomony sinks any further It was a M6 with a 21/2.8 pre-ASPH held clandestinely at chest level using hyper-focal distance focusing.

The milk bottles were shot years ago in London, I think it was done with a Leica CL with the CL90/4 ... a terrific little lens BTW.

Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

Wouldnt it be nice to have a section for analogue cameras on the main menu where owners of other makes could join in,hope theyll join in any way,but a bit of pressure from everyone and maybe this could be a little more permanent.
Helen,with your wonderful enthusiasm Im sure you can bend Jack and Guys collective arm.
The toy in the photo was made by me as the last in what was a series of images,if I can find the rest Ill print them and show the series and you can make up your own mind.
