Life in Leica | Trina Baker Photography

Leica M3 gallery32 photography

My friend Mike, from the Red Lyon Tavern, was kind enough to lend me his lovely Leica M3 camera.  Last Saturday I had some time to take it out and shoot a roll.  I love this camera and all of it’s little quirks. Focusing was a bit difficult but after a few frames I figured out how to line up the images in the viewfinder.  This camera is sturdy and suffice to say not something I would tote around with me daily. My arm was a wee bit tired after a few hours of carrying it around.  I am pleased with how sharp these photos are considering this camera is almost 60 years old and I was shooting wide open at f2.8.  These images were shot on a roll of Fuji Color 400 but I converted them to black and white mostly because I thought it made the shots were more interesting. You can view more of the photos on my flickr account!   Maybe this weekend I will take out my neglected Nikon F100. Hmmm.

    How did you manage to get them on the pc? I am afraid to buy this camera only because of the fact that it might get hard to get the pics on the pc after I get them printed(I hope that’s the term?). Would a scanner do? I am getting this beautiful deal on it and I’m confused.

    Great pics!!!

      Thanks! When I got the film developed I had then scan the negatives and put them on a CD. You could scan the prints as well.
