From Gerald R. Lucas



Before his haircut, Henry decided to sit on the wet deck and play in hist school clothes. Good job, dude. I wanted to get before and after shots, but this before one was about the best I could do.

I was using the Nokton Classic 1.4/40 on the Leica M8, and I like the colors I got here, though they look more vibrant in the RAW file in Capture One Pro. This is a challenging lens wide-open on the rangefinder. I can normally get the focus, but if I move to then compose the shot, sometimes the focus can be messed up entirely. This photo definitely has a vintage feel to it, so maybe I shouldn’t bee too hung up on nailing the focus every time.

I added Henry’s after shot to the Nokton Samples gallery along with a couple of other random photos.
