I’ve been waiting on this roll for three weeks. Finally developed and scanned it today.
Three different kids, three different days, three different “uniforms”. These are just quick shots that I cajoled the kids into as they were rushing off to their various activities.
Same place (in the backyard).
But… the lighting was different each day, so the shutter speed varies between 1/60 – 1/1000 sec.
All shots @ f/1.4.
↑ Leica M2-R, Voigtländer 40mm Nokton f/1.4, Kodak Portra 400, and Plustek 8200i.

Beautiful and expressive portraits. I love the tonalities.
I wish that you and your family are well. Hugs.
Hey Mr. Salcedo! Good to hear from you. Thank you very much. We are well, I hope the same for you and your family.
Fortunately yes, thank you. A weird year for all, but making it through.
All the best!
Wow! That combo you’ve used here has helped you capture the glowing light that’s being emitted by each of your three children. Well done, Peter.
Sean! Very poetic description. I and my children thank you Sir!
Mon cher Peter,
Theses portraits of your children are the most beautiful I have seen so far…
Since you have done the choice to keep and have only “One camera and One lens”…your pictures are what you are from your soul …
Congratulation for what you still do on your website, and for your always so elegant way to capture the moment of your life around you.
Your children are amazing as usual !!!!
All my best from Paris, hopefully all is fine from your side mon ami !
Truly grateful for your generous comments Hugues! And nice to hear from you too.
I’m glad to learn that during these dark times you are alive (and hopefully well), and still in Paris.
These are all very nice. I like the contrast of light vs background.
Thanks Karim. Yes and the change of light over several days (and times within each day) add another dimension.
dear Peter, wow the magic is back!! Outstanding!!!
Thank you Andreas!
LOL, Andreas, I can tell by the email notification I received that you made this comment but I’m not sure why WordPress ascribed it to “Peter | Prosophos”.
Anyway, thank you and I’m glad to learn that you too are alive during these crazy times.
Not sure if the “magic is back”, but I’m definitely more comfortable with my rangefinder camera. I just wish I had the time to photograph, and had the opportunity to travel. Oh well, I guess I should just be glad to have my health.
Addendum: I corrected your name Andreas.
Every time I see your Film-Photos, I want to throw all my digital cameras in the bin. It is just so different (in a good way).
I know what you mean. That’s why I’m back to shooting film. Which means I’m shooting less (it’s just more difficult in every way), but I’m happier.
Thank you for your comment.
