one camera. one lens. zero bayer filters. no oompa loompas!

Sugar Skulls vs Bumper Scars 17-Oct-2015

The last time I shot at the Civic in the afternoon was 24 May 2015. At that time I had a M-240 with on/off-camera flash and a M9-Monochrom. The flash could overpower the sodium lamps for the primary subject, but not the background/secondary subject.  At the time, I was a little down on the M9 compared with the M-240; the M-240 was just such a more snappy fun camera to use.  And I was on the waiting list for the M-246.

That was the last time I went crazy editing afternoon Civic photos.   In August I got that M-246.  It's a wonderful little camera.  Last May I basically vowed to myself to never shoot another color photo at the Civic under sodium lamps again. 

And so that's what I did last weekend (except for a handful of no-flash color photos with a 35mm lens at the end of the bout).

One camera (Leica M-246). One lens (Leica 90mm f2 Summicron). Zero Bayer Filters. No Ooompa Loompas!
