Leica M9 Colours vs. Colour Slide Film

Leica M9 Colours vs. Colour Slide Film

I tend to do black and white photography with my Leica M9. On occasion though I do take colour images and use the DNG files (rather than Leica M9 B&W in camera JPEGs).

In a recent post I compared desaturated Leica M9 colours to Kodak Portra film which I love for my model photography / wedding photography portraits.

The normal Leica M9 DNG file colours tend to be much more saturated and for my subjects often too saturated. For me the standard Leica M9 colours are more like colour slide film or perhaps Fuji Superia film.

I did a models photography shoot in Ukraine with model Katya last weekend and her red dress and red lipstick suited brighter colours. In this mini series I really liked the Leica M9 colours and they made a nice contrast to the desaturated tones when I shot with model Yulya the day earlier.

Here are a few more Leica M9 examples using the very sharp Zeiss ZM Planar 50mm f2 T lens.
