The White Shirt Project

Creating and developing a specific photographic project is one of the best ways to focus your skills. Here Dan Bachmann outlines the origin and progress of his ongoing White Shirt Project.

Fuji’s Cannon of a Lens: 100-400mm of quality and substance


Now, please humour me if I start this review with a short physics lesson and a small rant. I am what most would call "tall"—five-foot fifteen inches in my socks. There's a lot of me to move about, and to support. I take a UK size 15 shoe (that's 50 in foreign). It makes buying footwear a bit of a chore, but it does mean that I neither sink in soft sand nor topple over in high winds. In short my feet are in proportion to my body.

Review: Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH

First look at the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 by Jonathan Slack

First impressions: Voigtländer Nokton 75mm f/1.5

The new Voigtländer Nokton 75mm is an interesting lens, offering competition for the Leica Summilux or, even, the extremely expensive f/1.25 Noctilux....

Leica Monochrom: Life in black and white


Two months in and I love my Leica Monochrom like no other. Whatever is said about the restrictions of black and white or the excessive cost of this camera, the fact is that the MM is unique[1] and a classic in the making.
