Noctilux

Leica M10 + Noctilux Wedding Photos

A couple weeks ago, Leica sent me out their 50mm Noctilux f/0.95 to shoot on the M10. I brought it along to a big farm wedding out in Pennsylvania where I shot over 2000 images with it throughout the day. All shot wide open, the way this lens was designed to be shot. I’ve shot the Noctilux a few times now over the past couple years, but this was the first time on the M10. While I do love shooting it, and while it did create some of my favorite photos that I took at the wedding, I still prefer my 50mm Summilux ASPH. The Summilux is smaller, lighter, and have always preferred the way that it handles the harsh sunlight for the way that I shoot. 

All of these images were shot with the M10 and Noctilux combo. I've also added the link to this in my M10 review. If interested, you can see the full blog post from this wedding HERE.

Any questions, please leave them in the comments, thanks!

A few teasers from a stylized shoot we shot just before a rain storm came through. We got rained out and didn't get to pull off the shoot we had planned for, but we got to get a few shots off before wrapping it up. All these images were shot with the Leica M9 and 50mm Noctilux F/0.95 that I have only been shooting for a couple days and still getting used to manually focusing and trying to nail a razor thin focus plane. Will post more from this shoot later once my power comes back on from the recent storms here in South Jersey.  Sandi and I have been without power now for 3 days and still no word on it coming back soon. Uploaded and edited these images on my Macbook Pro at a Starbucks. As always, our creative team kicked ass for this shoot, even though we got rained out, we got some good shots for everyone involved.
