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

Waterfall Workshop with Ken Voltz


I just finished a 2 day waterfall workshop sponsored by our local Bluewood Gallery owned by Hal Looney and hosted by Ken Voltz.

The widest lens in my bag is the Leica Summilux-M 35mm and for this workshop I decided to rent the Leica Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 ASPH from Lensrentals. The Leica 24mm Elmar is a compact lens and provides superb optics for wide angle photography. I did not rent the 24mm external viewfinder and decided to wing it as the Leica M-E’s widest frameline in the rangefinder is for a 28mm lens.

I happen to live in “waterfall heaven” as we have at least 300 waterfalls here in Transylvania County. Over the two days we got a chance to shoot several. The weather remained overcast which was perfect and the autumn leaves are here too.

I’ve attached a couple more of my keepers from the two days below.
