Leica M9 + Speedlight

Here is a sample from the weekend location shoot with model Harriet. I wanted to do some daylight photography mixing ambient light and strobes using the Leica. Here is the first sample using a single off camera flash fired via PC sync cord. It was too windy for umbrella light modifiers and my new 16″ beauty dish had not yet arrived so I used a ringflash on the flash head to diffuse the light onto the model.

I will add more samples to this thread. There are already a few more on Flickr if interested.

Photo taken with Leica M9 + Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 ASPH ii lens (though I was using other lenses too).

I also did some 6×6 film photography using 120 medium format Ilford FP4+ film and the ARAX-CM so I have those to come too once the film is developed!

If you would like to learn how to light a model on location or in the studio you should join me for one of my workshops where I will help you understand both your camera and the light around you.
