Concert images 

Its been a long time since my last post . I am currently involved  in a few video projects that take up most of my time so it is a fact  that I have neglected my blog uploads lately .

Yesterday I took a walk at a nearby festival and took a few images with the Leica M8 and Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 lens .

I haven’t used the M8 for a few months since I almost solely rely on my Sony A7s both for stills and video .

But I really waned to use this camera again since I really love rangefinders and also the great black and white images I get from the CCD sensor of the M8.

  

The f/1.1 lens is really very helpful for a camera that actually has a real limit of ISO 640 when shooting in low light conditions. 

Focusing with the rangefinder at f/1.1  was quite difficult  I have to admit , since I got spoiled from the peaking and zoom assist functions of the Sony A7s !! But I got a few keepers. 
Despite its age , the M8 still gives me the best black and white images from any other camera. Many of the images are b&w JPEGS straight out of the camera. I attribute this to the CCD sensor and the very thin IR filter. 

Up to ISO 640 I can get away with noise , and some images may  be still good at ISO 1250 but that’s about it . 

The dynamic range is not on par with modern cameras so I had to be very careful how to expose (still I managed to burn some highlights , as I’ve said its been a long time since I used the M8!)

I will also visit the festival today again with the M8 and try to get some good images .

“Awakening” music video

“Awakening” is the first official music video from the band Mind Terrorist. The band assigned this project to me a couple of months ago and yesterday the video went on online on YouTube.

The whole video was shot with the Sony A7s camera and the Zeiss 24-70 f/4 lens. I used the slog2 feature which proved very helpful in the high contrasty scenes at the beach. Editing and grading was done with Final Cut X.

Vaia

Last weekend I was at the beautiful city of Kastoria, GREECE with a group of friends photographers and we had the chance to make some images.

I am posting three of these photos today. Vaia is a singer and a photographer and she had the courtesy to be the main subject for a series of photos I wanted to shoot. You can check out her page here.
