Hey! My name’s Dusty and I’m a professional traveler – any means necessary! All three photos were taken with a Panasonic LX5. I feel like I’m pushing the limits of that camera so I recently upgraded to an RX100, and hope to have enough cash to buy the E-M1/12-40 f2.8 combo in the next month ..READ MORE..
A Sony A3000 Experience By Bill Spencer This is about an unintentional photographic journey resulting from a failed GAS adventure.

Shooting with The Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 and the Sony A7 By Doug Frost I’ve been a happy owner of the Sony A7 since last December.

Hi Brandon, These are my three images for the daily inspiration submission. I recently acquired a Rolleiflex 3.5F with Schneider Xenotar lens, so I thought I’d share the results of my first couple of rolls.

Steve, While going through the portfolio to decide on what images to submit for Daily Inspiration, I thought it would be interesting to choose images from different cameras, in this case the Nikon D7000, D600 and my grandfather’s vintage 35mm Kodak Retina 1a from the 1950′s. This past year I found myself spending a lot ..READ MORE..
Shooting film with a Leica M6 By Kjetil Andre Dalheim In my last “inspiration” I wrote some word on my thoughts on going from a state of the art DSLR to rangefinder and Leica. Gear is not all, but changing to Leica is to me more than going from Canon to Nikon. Using rangefinder, manual ..READ MORE..
Wedding shoot with a Leica M4-P By Rikard Landberg Hi! My name is Rikard Landberg. In March this year I did my second wedding shoot ever.
