Leica M Instagram Shots

I finally bit the bullet and created an Instagram account. I am bad enough at social media as it is but I liked the idea of checking out all the other talented DPs on the site so I decided to give it a go.

Breaking the Ice

To get in to the swing of things I took the 5 pics/1 place challenge.  I took the Leica M and the Summilux 50mm and went for a walk with the dog.  We made our way over to the truck stop just out of town and I decided that there was as good a place as any.

The next hour or so I walked around checking the angles and the light.  I had a self imposed rule of only taking 5 exposures so I wanted to see all my options before the light got to be just right.

Don’t ask me why but I am a sucker for street lights.  I can’t explain why but whenever I go out to take photos they always seem to creep in.  Probably because they are easy ways to break up the composition.

After a quick location scout I had decided on my shots and now all I had to do was wait for the light to be just right.

    Awesome shots 🙂 Did you use shooting through glass technique to get that effect n some of the pics?

    Really would love to see the type of g;ass you use – I have tried broken UV filters and am experimenting with different pieces and widths of glass
