The main reason why I photograph with a Leica camera:

“I want simplification, not amplification or complication…I just want light controls … because photography is about light.” – Thorsten Overgaard

“A camera that gives me the joy of ownership and the joy of shooting is much more important than one with the highest number of megapixels or highest ISO performance.” – Yukio Uchida

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Man Sketching

After posting the Lady in the Alley, I finished going through the rest of my Nice, France captures. I was not sure how to process the following photo and was about to pitch it. The sky in the alley is blown out and there was not much to see on the left side of the original image. So I cropped some of the left side out and I came across a new to me technique I think I will be using in the future while processing the image in Nik HDR Pro.

  1. This is unbelievable! Great job. What did you use for post processing?


  2. Nevermind I just looked at your equipment page. I use Aperture too. I’m kinda new to the photography game, so I’m just playing around haha. You’re welcome to check out my stuff if you want. Maybe you can give me some tips


  3. Thanks Omkar. I use the Nik Complete Collection and for this photo I used Nik HDR Efex Pro.


  4. I’m really no expert Omkar. I try to always have a camera with me and try to take pictures every day. That’s one of the reasons I really like the Ricoh GRD III. It fits in my jean pockets and can always have at least it with me.


  5. i just looked up the HDR program. did you use multiple exposures for this picture?


    1. Hi Omkar, this was not a multiple exposure picture but I did use Nik’s HDR Pro software to help with the look I was after.
