Tonight we took a ride down to Chatsworth to capture some lifestyle maternity photos for Travis and Jessica. Having shot Travis’s older brother’s wedding a couple years ago, Sandi and I were both excited to hear that he and Jessica were expecting their first child and wanted us to shoot some maternity shots for them. Like every wedding, we get to know the bridal party pretty good each wedding. Getting to hang out with the two of them tonight was a great time, especially trading stories of how the pregnancy has been going. We hit a spot in South Jersey that we never shot at before, and it worked out perfect for what we had in mind. Definitely a place we will have to head back to soon to hike in a little further to see what else it has to offer.
For all the photographers, especially those interested in the newly released Leica M10, I shot the entire session with it along with the 50mm f/1.4 Summilux ASPH. Sandi shot with her Canon 5D MarkIV. Every image in this post were shot on the new Leica M10. This was the first shoot that I’ve had the chance to shoot it on, and the first files I’ve actually processed from it. As far as the new body, LCD, ISO dial, and larger viewfinder, I was immediately impressed. Tonight, processing the RAW files, I was even more impressed. Having owned the M9, M240, and M-P, this sensor is by far Leica’s best yet. If they created a new sensor completely or tweaked the one from the SL and Q, I can tell you that it’s definitely not the same as those two. The dynamic range is incredible, better than the Nikon D750, and high ISO is pretty damn close. The colors, dare I say it, are even better than the Canon files that I love so much. Overall, the new Leica M10 is the upgrade I’ve been waiting for, well done Leica… well done.
