Leica M9 – Konica Hexanon-M 50mm B&W Jpeg
Contax G2 – 45mm Zeiss Planar – Kodak Tri-X
I just had these two frames sat next to one another on the screen and found the comparison interesting. Not a million miles apart to be honest.
Leica M9, 50mm Konica Hexanon-M f/2 (iso320 @ f/2) – B&W in camera JPEG plus a little Lightroom tweak to get it how I like
Contax G2, 45mm Zeiss Planar f/2, Kodak Tri-X (@400 @f/2) – Developed in Kodak D76(1:1) then Plustek Opticfilm 7400i scan (not rescanned or cleaned hence drying marks)
Simple as that, two days, three faces for me to meet this week.

Tuesday saw me working with A-Models and Meg Lindow MUA. Here I had the luck to work in some beautiful light with Logan and Sophia.
Then after a rather late night call up Wednesday saw me working with Boss Models Anna Caradice-French and the always charming Thembi Mkandla MUA. Again spoilt by glorious light.
All three of these photographs used natural light, just goes to show the diversity of what can be achieved with minimal equipment.
Exhaustive kit list used for these;
Leica M9 – 50mm
Contax G2 – 45mm – Fujifilm film stock.
That’s it, about as simple as you can get. My kind of shoots these.
