Work your Leica M

The Leica M rangefinder camera can be regarded as a legend in the field of photography. Using it in real life can be a challenge however. Focussing is done all manually and many people lack the speed to keep up with things.

In this e-book, documentary -wedding- photographer Joeri van der Kloet, presents a clear, step by step tutorial to increase your focussing performance. In 14 effective exercises you will improve your speed and accuracy in focussing.

Marc Johansson:

I never had the confidence to use my M9 in fast action. I always was too slow with focussing. Now at least I know how to train effectively and the tricks in the tutorial make focussing easier.”


Love the practical set-up of this tutorial! It is clearly written, with a lot of fun exercises which really made me experience the camera a lot better. Hopefully I will end up with the same documentary skills as Joeri (see also his own site”


I purchased this book and it’s really great. Not so much revolutionary but a good collection of common sense and exercises to get better and better. I’d recommend it to anyone looking to improve their rangefinder focusing skills.”
