For quite a some time now I have been using Fujifilm X system cameras and enjoying the experience, especially the lack of neck strain. I now seldom use the big and bulky DSLR cameras, except when the occasion demands it. However for the past couple of weeks I have been using a full frame rangefinder camera, a complete new experience for me. Manual focus and no bells and whistles have brought me back to what photography used to be like.
My recent monochrome images have been produced with this camera. Being forced to slow down using manual focus might help to improve my photographic eye, I have also being trying out zone focusing and being surprised when my images were sharp! But what has been most enjoyable is the experience of going out with just one camera and one prime lens. There is a freedom with this which just lets you concentrate on making that image.
Earlier today I visited Island Hill and the three monochrome images are the result. Yesterday I visited the same location and captured the colour photograph.
