Trying out the Noctilux in the studio. This is done using the model light in my Profoto D1 500ws. Shooting at 0.95 wide open with Leica M240. Turing the modellight on highest setting gives me 1/250s on 200iso in this case. Model: Karen Ziefelt and Hair/makeup: Romina Alvarez. In the portfolio you can see this shoot done with the Hasselblad H5D + HC 150mm N and flash which of course looks a whole lot different that this.

Adea in the studio with the Leica M240 and Noctilux 0.95. Using the Noctilux on this distance gives some focusing challenges to say the least. Perhaps I find that using this lens in the studio makes less sense than working with some kind of background outside. That will probably show this awesome lens potential best.

The model is more or less tied up in the studio. Inspired by the japanese photographer Araki. Its actually not easy to make the ropes work but some of the frames like this one turned out like i wanted to so very happy with that. Also i did several different shutter times to get the blur right. Before when i shoot with the M6 I got used to which shutter speed looked like I wanted but on the M240 still learning. Leica M240 + Leica M 35mm Summilux FLE. The models name is Kiki and she likes cake.

Going to the Botanical Garden with Louise. We found a flower on the floor from a nearby plant inside one of the major greenhouses. The Noctilux turned the greenhouse plants and tress into some kind of impressionistic painting. Most of my work is black and white but this one had to be color I think with the pink flower the pink shirt and pink lips and the many green tones from the leaves. Leica M240 + Leica M 50mm Noctilux 0.95 ASPH.

This is danish photographer Viggo Rivad in his home in copenhagen where he lived most his life. He was always inspiring to talk to about photography and traveling which he spend his life on. This was done using the Leica M9 with Leica M 75mm Summicron 2.0 APO. The light is daylight from the bay windows in his livingroom behind me. Viggo himself a lifetime Leica user too.
