The Leica Travelogues: Update

I wanted to give an update as to where “The Leica Travelogues” are going. I also have been struggling with gear and the general quality of the episodes I’ve produced. The audio has sounded quiet, muffled and “amateur” in my opinion. The Blue Yeti, which I use, may be a good microphone for some applications but it just isn’t a good mic for me. I feel the tone of my voice gets muffled and my words lost at times. Maybe

Leica 18mm Super-Elmar-M Filter Hack

The Leica 18mm Super-Elmar-M ASPH is one odd-ball lens.

Update: Kodak 5222

I’m struggling. I’ve been shooting Kodak 5222 almost non-stop since I got it. And I honestly love it. It’s producing striking black and white images with great contrast. I honestly no longer feel the need to throw a red filter on my lens. BUT… I’m having a hard time with processing the film. I’ve shot it at 200 ASA and 400ASA. I’ve processed it according to multiple sources at the recommended times… and… I’m over-exposed. I started lowering the development
