Thanks Katie.

No the barn is not Chicago. We went to visit a good friend that just bought a new house in Carbondale Il. It's a bit more rural there.

Good to see you here. Big fan of your work to....

pictures from new monochrome type 246 seem too clean ( it may be better for some people ) nevertheless I enjoy to see some grain ( fine grain ) in the picture like this one from Peter Klein. Understand it is a matter of taste ... but that was how I grew up

Thx for sharing all great B&W pictures from Leica Monochrome camera ( ver. 1 & 2 ).

Coming from analog, grain has the soothing effect on me as well. But, thought that this thread is to show case the possibilities of the MM, which is partly responsible for my acquisition of the typ 246.

I was trying to use a flash to make the rain pop, but I don't think it was raining enough to get the desired effect.

Got the reflective stuff to pop though. Cool and could be a project.

Kinda reminds me a bit of what the flash was doing in Subway (Davidson).

Thanks!

Yeah, I need to go out again sometime when it is raining more heavily, see if I can get the effect I as after.

I'm not familiar with Davidson's Subway, only his book on England and Scotland. I couldn't find it on Magnums site, do you know where some of it might be online?

I think if you're looking to get rain to appear as bright drops, you're likely going to have to backlight it. I don't think that a frontal flash will do much.

Hi Vince,

Yes I see what you mean, I'm only going on what Jim Richardson wrote:

Quote:
Pop just a little flash. Huh? No, really, I mean it. Your flash will light up the raindrops, usually a bad thing because it will pump out way too much light as it tries to light up your subject. You don’t want that. But turn it way down (like -3.0 stops) and it will add just a little pop to the raindrops. This technique is tricky; you’ll have to experiment. Maybe it won’t work at all, but if it does, it can be quite magical. (Also works on snowflakes sometimes.)

http://photography.nationalgeographi...in-richardson/
That said, it was hard enough to shoot with the camera and an umbrella, let alone adding an off camera flash! That said, I wonder if I can mount it on the umbrella... interesting...

Thanks for the reply!
Peter

A stroll with these marvelous cloudscapes as a backdrop will make anything impressive.

Nice cloudscapes indeed. Will be there this weekend with my M246. They reminded me to pack an orange or even red filter with me. Hopefully, the clouds will still be there.

Thank you Jan and adresaba and strong portrait Vince. New or old MM?

I would say feel free to post your new MM stuff in here to. I enjoy seeing your posts.

Vince, any exhibits in the near future?

Well, being that the M246 delivers files that are too clean, you should be able to figure out which camera took this one

Yes, I have two exhibits coming up, both of which I think I'm free to mention: One is at Full Circle Gallery in Baltimore next month, entitled 'Mapping the West'. The second show is next year at.....The Leica Store in Washington DC!

Great Vince. Glad to hear it. To bad you are so far.

To clean? Not in my opinion.

Vince,

Full Circle takes care of my color film processing. I'll swing by next month and check it out!
