Daily Inspiration #120 by Michael Morris

Happy Friday guys! Today I bring you some cool film shots from Michael Morris and his Leica M6.

“Mr. Huff

Found your site while looking for info on the “probably-forever-out-of-my-reach” Noctilux 0.95. I enjoyed the review, thanks.

Attached are three images from a recent trip to New Orleans for possible inclusion in your Pic of the Day. I wanted to photograph musicians and found them practically everywhere in the city. All of the images were shot with an M6 fitted with a 50mm f2 Summicron. The image of the young guitarist and his dog was shot on Tri-X 400 while the other two images were shot on T-Max 3200.

  1. Elaine, Thank you. I have no idea what kind of dog it is. It reminded me of the dog from the Little Rascals.

  2. Love ’em Michael, the dog shot being my fave. I love shooting live musicians too and am yet to give it a go with my Leica CL. I shoot gigs with my 7D which is relatively easy but shooting film at concerts is an artform!

  3. I love the dog. What kind is it? I’ve never seen a dog like that before. I love these pictures. they are awesome.Thanks for sharing them.

  4. Thanks everyone for the kind words. Yes Stephen, the first one was shot on 3200. And yeah Nick, I didn’t have to search too hard to find what I was looking for. 🙂

  5. Whooho! This is my city with exactly my same camera and lens! Finding musicians (or good food) in New Orleans is like waking up and finding the sun rose.

  6. Nice work there, Michael. Love the tones and what a combo there..TriX and the 50 Summicron..unbeatable. Really like the dog/singer shot but the other two are lovely as well. Don’t know why some people complain about 3200ISO grain…I mean, that’s just beautiful. Grit, tone, everything you want and it works perfectly for this type of photography. Well done!
