Tuesday Travel: Imagine

John Lennon Wall in Prague. A terrific place with music, fans and tourists. Bring a camera when you go there. For instance a Leica M9 with a 50 cron (though the exif tells you it’s a 21mm) Want to know more about how to use your rangefinder camera on your travels? Check out my Leica workshops or […]

Leica Workshop and the quest for a camera

I’m not sure if I have to be proud of it, but so far most of my workshop clients that didn’t have an M when attending my workshop, bought one shortly after the workshop. I guess I infected my clients with a virus that will make their lives considerably more expensive. Luckily, buying a digital […]

Tuesday Travel: Cry baby cry

It resembles the way we see the world and it gives me the opportunity to isolate subjects from the background, yet without the disturbing effects of a long telephoto lens. However, I do need other lenses too. My clients expect me to deliver a package of photos that […]
