Wednesday workshop: 21mm portrait

I usually ask my workshop participants to bring their entire kit of cameras and lenses. Not to lug them around all day, but to point out some interesting features of the gear they have. A few weeks ago, one of my clients had a new Leica 21 Summilux and he told me he didn’t know why he bought it in the first place. I encouraged him to take a portrait of my wife Anita and explained how a fast wide angle can work to isolate a subject, but still show a lot of the surroundings. On his new Leica Monochome, we both liked the result.
