A few from a recent wedding

Emily Therese, The Leica lady, and I went to a wedding on Martha’s Vineyard for my “Step-Sister-In Law” and her new husband. I had never been to Martha’s Vineyard before and it was quite a time getting there…drive… ferry… drive… but needless to say, it was a fun time for the weekend despite the rooms having paper thin walls and the fog horns blowing the entire time.

These shots were taken with a Leica M9-P + .95 Noctilux. Except for two – the pier and the wide screen image – which were taken with a Canon 5dmkii. I was asked by the bride to video the wedding. So Emily got a ton of photos and I just did the video and a few snaps.

Third Batch of Honeymoon Photos

This is pretty much it for my edits. I do have a memory card from the Leica X1 that I haven’t even looked at yet – so perhaps there will be more. But this is the final batch (I am going to make prints) from MY Leica M9 honeymoon photos. We still have to do the Leica Lady’s work… but since she started law school, time in front of the computer without law notes is pretty rare.

Second Batch of Honeymoon Photos

Some additional images from the Honeymoon. I think we both feel the same way – we should never have come home.

I saw some references on one of the forums devoted to Leica enthusiasts (read: freaks) asking about some of my editing techniques. Unless you have specific questions, all I can say is that I load them into photoshop. I work mostly in Adobe Camera Raw. Then I do touch ups in photoshop. Usually less than 5 minutes per photo. Only a special case (something akin to an HDR…) requires more than that. These are the photos that I love taking because I take them for me. (Or in this case – I took them for us; both me and the Leica Lady, Emily Therese.)

First Batch of Honeymoon Photos


The previous photos from our Honeymoon were edited on the Honeymoon with Adobe Lightroom. I had never really used Lightroom previous to this trip… but it was all I had. I honestly felt pretty naked – despite the fact that I really only edit in Adobe Camera Raw. But the ability to use some of my presets for raw processing was bugging me. So now I am back in my digital darkroom… and I was able to get through some that I wanted to share.

The Leica Lady and I went to Praiano, Italy for our Honeymoon. We had been in Italy a few years earlier but only saw Rome, which honestly, our experience there paled in comparison to our experience in Paris just days earlier. So this was something completely different. For those of you who don’t know where Praiano is – it’s part of the amalfi coast (or basically the Shin – of the boot of Italy).

We spent about 5 days there… and had an amazing trip.
