I got a Leica M2 and I’m in love with film again

LEICA M2 Lukas Korynta-001.jpg

Random rolls of film from past few months. All shot on Leica camera and Kodak film. I love shooting film because it slows me down and forces me to think more about the shot. So many times I walked away from the scene as I realized it’s not maybe worth capturing, I see this as a good thing! So refreshing to approach photography like this, especially since I’m used to taking over 60K images a year as a wedding photographer.

 

My setup: Leica M2 + Summarit 35mm f2.5

  1. I’ve always been fascinated with Leica cameras and wondered what it would be like to shoot with a range finder. Would love to give an M6 a try, heard so many good things about it.

  2. What first got you into shooting film and what was your first film camera? I’ve also started shooting film as a break from the mass of digital photos I take for work. Loving it so far! @brandon.burridge

  3. Really enjoying your blogs! Thanks for the great giveaway you’re doing!! Keep up the good work, ‘cause i like your style mate!

  4. So so good! The earth is huge and our God is great, thank you for capturing life as it is and sharring beauty with the world 🙂 Always inspired by your photos and how raw they are, not just about the the big moments, even the quiet ones can still pull us in.

  5. Taky moc velká inspirace. Zas něco úplně jinýho. Tak třeba jednou.. Jinak moc mě baví @lucascorny poslední dobou.

  6. I’ve got some film rolls at home, really old ones. Unfortunately my old Canon AE1program is broken 🙁 developping film is also rather expensive, so those film rolls will be getting older and older 🙂

  7. Some truth:
    I looked up to you as a wedding photog and now even more as I started shooting film. Everything you do motivates me to shoot and improve my work and I’m thankful for that. Seriously!

  8. I’m not a photographer so I know very little about what goes into making a great picture other than what is pleasing to my eye. All of these shots are great and I am finding a new appreciation for photography!
