Leica M4-P in Paris!

I would like to share some photos from my trip to Paris. I used a Leica M4-P with a Zeiss Biogon 35/2.8 loaded with Tmax 400. It´s a great combo!

My ”style” of photography is black and white photos with a lot of negative space. The negative thing about negative space is that i often don’t get close enough. The challenge on this trip was to get closer but still use negative space. Did i succeed?

Lovely shots. You did get close enough as far as I'm concerned.

Yummy Good Photos!

I love the C biogon
But just got the f2 35 to 'see'
How different they may render

Were you also present, or did the M4P did it all by itself?

I have the same combination, M4-P + Biogon 35/2.8 - nice and simple. It's an easy set up to forget about the camera and fall into a nice mood and shoot.

The space in the first pic will occupy me for some time.

Very nice indeed. Have you considered a yellow filter to add some interest to the blank sky (although that blankness may have been exactly what you intended!).

I'm pretty sure all of those photos are illegal.

Very nice pictures Landberg. Good use of the M4-p and Biogon. I'm having a GAS attack again.

Btw swoop is probably referring to the crazy privacy laws in France. The country that gave the world HCB now has laws that stifle street photography. Then again, writing laws into the books and enforcing them are different things. Anyway, none of the people in the pictures appear offended that they were photographed.

Some info here.

Tres bon!

Really like your use of fore and background details to effectively frame the subjects. Some nice 3D pop too.

Excellent shots.

The pictures of the couples (if thats what they really are) when viewed in reverse order in the series seems to depict the various stages of married life - love, resentment, ennui, detachment, and estrangement. In reality, they could just be waiting to be served while at the bistro or waiting for an airport taxi. The body language is awesome.

Very good observation, and quite sad.

Great series all around! Thanks for sharing. Not your stereotypical Paris shots (which is a good thing).

Wow... very nice work. I have an M4-P with an Ultron, but that's nothing...

One question: were some of the couples you photographed aware of their being immortalized in film?

Just ask because of the laws France put out some time ago: "le droit à l'image", that basically would make this images illegal and illegally procured.

In any event... that's some very good work! Thanks for posting them!

I think they knew! I was close to most of them!
