Photography The art of looking

If you take a good look at older photographs made with that almost forgotten technology (silver halide emulsions and chemical processing), you may note a peculiar characteristic. The classical pictures show an involved interest and a careful way of looking, that is absent from current digital images. When you have only 36 pictures at your disposal, there is an adrenaline rush that forces you to capture the now-or-never moment, as you have only one chance.

—Erwin Puts, Frugality and the art of looking at Tao of Leica.

Photography Leica M9 Reviewed At Luminous Landscape

Michael Reichmann reviews The Leica M9 in Paris:

A Nikon D3x or a Canon 1Ds MKIII can be used as a point and shoot. For all of their sophistication and complexity, with these and similar cameras one can completely remove oneself from the process and just press the shutter.

With an M9 that is not the case. Because it is resolutely manual focus the camera demands that you become involved in the photographic process. This is another aspect of the Zen of Leica M Photography. There's no slacking off. There's no fully auto-everything mode. You must at least manually choose an aperture and you must always focus by eye.

A lengthy yet insightful review worth reading if interested in Leica M cameras in general and the M9 in special.

Photography Too much Photoshop

Get a DSLR. Take pictures. "Process" them a bit, you know—recover lost highlight and shadow detail, work your mouse with a bit of dodge and burn, clone out the unwanted, add in a little texture here and there, miraculously enhance the contrast.

Or, if you're really blatantly shameless, go for the full scam: HDR!

Photography Humans

What a charming species we are in October! Whipping scars, guys "clearing out" other guys, "The last Jew in Vinnitsa" and a woman crying for uncertain reasons. [Thanks, Roxana.]

Photography Smile, fly

Horrible, horrible weather in Bucharest today — sabotage it by peeking at Jan von Holleben's Dreams Of Flying and you'll automagically remember how to smile. I even laughed loudly at the ninth. Fuck the rainy day. [from Vudu Cat]
