Sub Zero Weather with the Leica SL

Recently an opportunity came across my lap and got me excited, my brother in law was looking into getting into the Leica system and was jumping straight into it with purchasing a Leica Noctilux. He has asked me to purchase it in advance and my only response was heck yeah as this would give me a week to try out the legendary Noctilux. Its very rare that you get to hold and shoot with a $10,000 lens so this was an opportunity that I was excited for and had me waiting for the UPS truck to arrive.

Packing light and ready to go

Travel Photography is all about being on the go and exploring countries, cities and small towns of the world. Those of you who follow me know that my philosophy in photography is one lens and one camera and being agile and ready to go is the biggest advantage in just going out and shooting photos. Trusting in a single focal length for that particular day, shoot or walk is the approach I take as this will let me just focus on framing my composition.

Opening a Leica feels like Christmas as a 5 year old

Opening new gear is pure joy, I know you all have been there. Ordering your gear, unboxing the gear and feeling, touching and testing out your new toys. This was always a great feeling that fuels your G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) to want more. But ever since moving to a Leica system the love for my gear has exponentially grown. Yes you sign over your life for purchasing Leica gear but you really get what you pay for. If you are a person who appreciates the finer details of life and the minuscule details and the thought put into industrial designs then Leica will truly appreciate.

Finding inspiration to go out and shoot

You have been there, you hit those lulls and lazy days where you just think to yourself, nah I don't need that camera sitting there. It could be a normal day, getting to errands, out for a jog, or just the normal day to the office. Seeing the same thing you see and walk by everyday. We all get in this cycle of repetitiveness that it happens, we get uninspired and the camera just sits there. Sometimes its tough to get those creative juices going again, you just think to yourself why bother. I am not going to see anything of interest today, its just another run to the coffee shop. So, how do I get out of this rut or prevent it?
