Into the Summer, Leica, and an Upcoming Workshop

  1. Leica for some just feel right and provides that unexplainable connection. I shot an M8 for years, but need higher ISO for what I was doing. Moved to Fuji XT1 which worked but without the feeling, now the XPro 2 comes close for me.

  2. Very true, Film or digital doesn’t matter. It’s the cameras. And unfortunately it’s the Leica (even my old IIIa) that matters.

    Expensive, yes, even the screw mounts and M2 and the lenses… aargh. But it’s what works!

  3. The techniques and methods that one chooses to process a final picture are closer to the hand of the artist than the means that you are using to record the image.

  4. Yep Josh. That clear rangefinder does not create a barrier between you and your subject. That’s what really makes it different. Not saying superior, given its obvious shortcomings, but DIFFERENT. That’s why I’m with you on the Q: great, but not for me.
    The Fuji X100 series almost gets there. But the pathetic zone focusing kills the real experience.
    Oh by the way here’s my keepers: #1 #8 #17 #18.
    Wish I could come to Korea in July, Or maybe not, too humid!
    Take care, mate,

  5. Josh I’ve followed and admired your work for quite awhile and I love your latest images, film or digital , the aesthetic is constant, moody and emotional, keep up the good work. Fuck the haters, if people are hating on your work it just means your doing it right. Sold out to Leica? If we could all be so lucky, I would sell out in a minute if they offered, haha. Keep true man.

    1. Thanks dude, I appreciate that. Means a lot. I’m not planning on changing, so, I guess people will get used to it or they won’t. Keep on keeping on, bro.

      1. I have been in the music business for 20 years before. To survive, one should not pay attention to the haters, but care for the ones who give love to what one is creating. To me, you are an real artist, no matter what other people say and how they judge your work. And it is allowed to grow your own idea about how you see your art. If that means, you use a Leica, so should be.

        I myself, have now M2 with a 2.8/35 Summaron and a M3 with a Summicron Version II. I am not taking better pictures than with my Ricoh GR, but it is more fun with a rangefinder.

        Stay happy
