    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Some fun in Las Vegas with the M Monochrom. All images are straight out-of-camera DNG converted to JPEG in Lightroom 5 with no adjustments whatsoever.

    These first two are with the MM and the Leica 75mm f/2.5 Summarit

    The next two are with the Leica 35mm f/2.5 Summarit (my favorite lens)

    Noctilux Near Noon

    These taken around noon, with the f/1 Noct but shot at f/1.4, of spectators at the America's Cup Race in San Francisco. It's hard for me to find a way to manipulate these files, because the everything-gained-is-something-lost factor seems particularly true with them. One thing I know is that high contrast post production loses too much. Much prefer the moodiness this lens can produce at this time of day.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Michael, I have enjoyed your series of London photographs greatly. Makes me feel a little homesick for my homeland, even though I've now lived longer in Canada than I did in the UK. I'd love to know about the PP of the shot of the taxi and the motorcycle somewhere above. Magical. The only times I get those kind of blacks in MM files is when I put them into Aperture as tiffs and play with them there. There was a LR version of this photo a couple of pages back, but it's gone when I replaced it on Flickr with the nicer Aperture version:



    Probably just my ignorance of LR, but I find things better in Aperture and wish Apple would get their finger out and accept MM DNGs!

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Thanks for the kind comment Chris. You should follow my ramblings at blog.michaeltoye.com. I post London images and, every so often, "how i processed/took/did..." pieces.

    The taxi/bike shot was not a special process. In point of fact, all my images are processed in the same fashion. I use CS6 and Silver Efex Pro 2, which I can see why it was given freely by Leica. Cracking product!

    I produce a 'base' layer which might very well look like the portrait of your girls above - good level of contrast and most importantly a lovely range of tones. maintain control of the light levels in the base layer too, as you have done.

    Not sure where the equivalents are in other products, but I use 1 or 2 contrast layers in addition; Soft & Hard Light Blend Mode. They will amplify blacks and whites.

    To achieve this, I will process an additional layer in SEP2. Low contrast, even tones, maybe a vignette. This layer will be set to soft/hard light layer mode. There is practice in knowing how the soft/hard light layer modes will react with this additional image layer though.

    It's this extra step that reveals the deep blacks.

    Hope this helps
    Michael

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Finally got one!!! Picked up my Monochrom yesterday from Tamarkin Camera in Chicago... Very Excited!!! Here are a couple initial shots (both were taken with a 35 Summilux-M ASPH and processed in Silver Efex Pro 2):

    Workflow for me is a challenge since I'm an Aperture user. Navigating Lightroom 5 is not fun--still haven't been able to import directly from the SD card But learning is part of the fun, right?!?!?!

    Thanks, Ashwin. Could not use the camera inside that complex much as most units were not happy to see an external camera (with good reason).

    What Can I Say - I"m overjoyed that Apple has finally condescended to add Monochrom support to Aperture - Hooray!

    What's more, they seem to have done it really well. The jpg option has been firmly switched OFF

    Here are a couple from this morning (these people had NOT heard about the aperture update, as you can see by their faces




    Both with the 75 'cron

    In "Downtown" Yverdon tonight. Thought I'd take my MM out for another test drive , speaking of which, she was definitely in the driving seat !



    This one was slightly more tricky as I was on f1.4 or so

    At the Santa Monica Pier this morning. Mike Panich gave me an excellent Lightroom lesson after a morning shoot. These were my first "processed" Monochrom images.

    LR has its (severe) limitations. Just after a basic RAW conversion, use the supplied Nik pluggins to do the post.

    100% agree with Vivek.

    LR to import and catalog and make basic adjustments to get the file basically balanced ... then Nik Silver Efex Pro-2

    You can set up LR so Photoshop and Nik are "Open In" plug-ins under the "Photo" heading in the LR top menu. Since Nik can also be assigned as a plug-in for Photoshop, I prefer to open a LR file in PS and then do the Nik program from there ... the difference is that the Nik processing is done as a layer over the original LR file ... so the layer opacity can be adjusted , or part of it erased to let the under file show through.

    Almost forgot this one. This was taken two weeks ago in the "Bergell" region close to the Italian border near Chiavenna
