    Q&A: focus shift with 50 cron

    Last week I received this email: Hello Joeri, My name is R. and I’m a photographer in New Orleans, USA. I stumbled upon your blog and wanted to ask a question. Thank you for writing about the 50mm Summicron lens and posting great photos! I got one of these lenses V5 (the current one) and […]

  • Dorus

    Dorus

    Dorus is (slowly) getting bigger. He’s 11 months old now and while he used to gain more than a kilo a week, he now starts to get some serious muscles. Even though he could chew off my hand in a second if he wanted to, he’s incredibly kind and sweet. He does tear up the […]

  • The Leica CL is impressively good

    The Leica CL is impressively good

    Two weeks ago we were in Sweden with my parents, brothers, sisters and the grandchildren. We don’t meet often as our family lives all across Europe. I knew my parents were looking forward to the reunion, so I had to bring a camera to take at least one group shot and lots of snapshots. For […]

    Wednesday wedding pic: make-up and champagne

    This is an old one. Maybe four years ago, but I still like this scene. The bride having a glass of champagne while getting ready for the ceremony. And you know what? I took this one with my good old M8. Now you can see why some people call the M8 the ‘poor man’s Monochrom’. […]

    Tuesday Travel: Run Forrest, run…

    Somewhere in the outskirts of Kowloon (HongKong) I came across a field where locals were playing soccer. One guy, although it was bloody hot, was running along the field. I like how the wire adds a bit of mystique to the scene. Leica M9 with 50 summicron

    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 […]

    Tuesday Travel: The happy waiters

    They say you find the best waiters in France, but the Cuban waiters aren’t the worst either. Of course they expect you to tip properly, but that’s the least thing you can do for the kind people on this interesting island. Leica M9 with 50 summicron Want to know more about how to use your […]

  • The Leica 50 summicron review

    The Leica 50 summicron review

    If I were to take one lens only to a random place, it would probably be this lens. The Leica 50 Summicron is all you could ever want as a documentary, portrait, wedding and street photographer. I could end my review with that, but I think you might like to know why I love the […]

    Tuesday Travel: find the shop owner

    A very typical shop in the Kowloon area of HongKong. Loaded with stuff that doesn’t seem to have any relation with neither the shop, nor the other things in the shop. Shot with Leica M9 and 35 summicron. Want to know more about how to use your rangefinder camera on your travels? Check out my […]

  • The power of perspective

    The power of perspective

    The 50mm is my favorite focal length. 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 […]
