The Story Behind That Picture - "The Singer"

The Story Behind That Picture - "The Singer" | thorstenovergaard | Scoop.it

By: Thorsten Overgaard 

 

One of the questions I've gotten to the pictures is "how much Photoshop" did you do on these pictures, and the answer is that I did nothing. The images are pretty much straight out of the camera via Lightroom.

 

Singer-songwriter Catherine Kubillus is "The Singer"

We set out on a horribly cold Danish afternoon with the hairdresser, model and an extra assistant. We did a few different locations that are known for their good light, including the beach, which was shockingly ice cold.

Once photographing meant a large box camera on a tripod, shifting film plate after each shot - and working with a dark cloth over your head and the camera.

For the Photographic Interested - A Look Behind - AFTER THE TSUNAMI

For the Photographic Interested - A Look Behind - AFTER THE TSUNAMI | thorstenovergaard | Scoop.it
Thorsten Overgaard's insight:

I like the smell of film and I like well-designed equipment. And I like to know other photographer's tricks and workflow. So I thought I would spend a few minutes for those of you who likewise have that interest.

With me to South East Asia I had five of my nine Leica cameras. I mainly used three cameras at the time: The fully manual Leica M4 around my neck (mostly with the 21 mm Leica Super-Angulon-M f/3.4 lens on it for shots like the one at page 24 and in general where I moved in close).

What We Learned Over One Year With The Leica Monochrom | Tulip Frenzy

What We Learned Over One Year With The Leica Monochrom | Tulip Frenzy | thorstenovergaard | Scoop.it

The first full day we had our Leica Monochrom — which arrived one year ago this past week — we took the above picture and amazed ourselves.  Not that the photo was so good, but we marveled at the strange fact that, as a lover of deeply saturated color images, we likely never would have processed the picture in black and white; we would have kept it as a color image, and toyed with white balance and tones. If anything, we would have enhanced the color.  And in so doing, we might never have discovered that this was an image that would look better as a black and white print. Over those next, early September weeks, it was as if we had discovered photography anew.  It had been decades since we’d developed black and white images in a basement.  We’d forgotten the joy of not simply capturing the world to see what things looked like as pictures, to paraphrase Gary Winogrand, but to see life transformed into something with more classical resonance.  We went to familiar places and, because we were thinking in terms of luminance, not chroma — light, not color — we could see shapes and patterns that once would have been uninteresting to us, and which now, because we were shooting with a black and white sensor precisely as limited as black and white film, could be seen in literally a different light.......

Thorsten Overgaard's insight:

So in short, the Leica S is a workhorse, and it is compact as such. Even sexy. But it is not a great toy because it just does the job. And when it doesn't do the job it's because you didn't know what you were doing, and you will just clutter your computer and workflow with some big files that doesn't show the sharpness and color accuracy of the Leica S.
