Just a short video I made while back with the Leica M240 at Australian Fashion Week. Keep in mind backstage light is mixed with various light sources all emitting different color temperatures. All pictures were color corrected as well as possible, but when light is mixed, it is impossible to achieve perfect colors. This is what happens when one light source is not overpowering the exposure than other. They end up blending together, It's just physics, and often what photographers encounter in such situations.
.....I took the new Leica M (type240) for a test drive, using the Leica Summarit 50/2.5 and Voigtländer Nokton 35/1.2 II lenses. All pictures were shot using natural light, and sometimes lit using the Ice Light and Nikon SB-910 speedlight on the SC-29 cable. Files were captured in DNG and edited in Lightroom 4.4. No photo manipulation was used.
I intended to spend a lot of time capturing the best quality pictures I could over the week, but I had obligations to shoot runway for many of the designers, so my time backstage was very limited to a period of 2 hours. The Leica M was fantastic to use. The battery life was great, new frame lines made framing and composition much easier and the the quieter shutter (as used in this video) made the camera even more discreet.
Hope you enjoy the video.
