↑Leica M9 and Leica 75mm Summicron @ f/2.
Beautiful portrait serie! Each image has his own strength. Maybe I have a little preference for the last picture due the light fall and the contract of BW.
One thing I noticed in each picture is the frown of Mr. A his face and that he is looking up (to the sky?). Is there a special reason behind this? Just curious:-).
No reason… I just liked these particular shots.
Thanks Peter! And indeed the 75 cron suits you very well. Looking forward to see more inspiring photos;-).
Who is this mysterious “Mr. A.” (a pseudonym, I am sure…) and WHY does he get a glamorous photoshoot from none other than Prosophos??
Heh heh…I like them all, but for me, #1 was best…the colors are killer!
Super work Peter. That 75 sings in your hands!
All the best,
Mr. A volunteered to help me test the 75mm Summicron… hence the photo shoot. As it turns out, he’s a natural when it comes to modeling!
Lovely series, what a combo!! The extremely photogenic Mr. A, the superb 75mm Summicron f/2 and ever so talented Mr. P!!!
Really well done.
Thank you so much. Believe it or not, I will not be purchasing the 75/2, despite trying it out and determining it’s a competent lens.
I guess that’s just a case of already having two perfectly capable 75′s?
I chose not to look at this image (and the third in the series) when they first arrived in my mail, but I am glad now that came across the series again.
I found the first two in the series oddly disturbing. Hard to explain, but I got a feeling which I can only describe as “lack of trust” when I viewed them. I didn’t want to post any negative comments but I was also thinking of the images and they didn’t make me feel good.
Seeing this image I don’t get that the same feeling, which is nice as now I feel like I have said my bit and can move on.
No need to post this if you don’t feel like it.
Interesting, Guy (and I don’t mind you voicing this at all). I was trying out the 75 ‘cron with this series and, or some reason, I didn’t take to the lens. Not sure if what you were picking up was a sort of awkwardness or something, indeed, deeper. Glad you liked this last image though.
