A few months ago I bought a classic Leica M2 from my friend Johnny Patience. Again I made a camera purchase through acquaintance on Twitter. A purchase from Johnny felt very safe since we met for real in Oslo a while ago - he is a great guy. To be honest it is for me an honor to use a camera I know has been in the hands of Johnny!
I remember I opened the package with great enthusiasm and I shot my first roll as soon the weekend came. The roll I got developed and although it certainly was not anything wrong with the camera, I realized that I had a learning curve to climb. Now I have shot some more rolls and want to share the pictures below. I have also taken a couple of rolls Kodak Tri-X 400, but snowy landscapes seems to be more challenging on the B&W. It is also possible I'm doing something wrong, of course. Anyway, until further I keep them secret from the public.
Location is in the area of our family cabin in Tuddal, Telemark municipality in Norway. It´s three different days in January and February 2015.
All photos taken with Leica M2 + Nokton 50mm f/1.5 ASPH VM on Kodak Portra 400. Films are developed & scanned by Richard Photo Lab.
