Congratulations, new adopters of film photography — you’re now officially a subculture! The defining point, of course, is having an independent documentary film about your movement, and that’s just what mail-order processor Indie Film Lab is doing with “Long Live Film.”
Teaming up with Kodak (however that might work now), folks from the Alabama-based company hit the road early this year, asking photographers across the United States why they still go to the considerable trouble of capturing their vision on emulsion rather than pixels. Indie Lab hopes to have the feature finished in a few months. For now, enjoy the promising trailer, which elegantly makes the case for film as an artistic choice rather than a Luddite response to the modern world. “I like how it makes me shoot and why it makes me shoot as much as I like the look,” responds one photographer.

Another useful and interesting how-to video by fashion photographer Scott Morvay. This time he talks about using light meters and grey cards with the Leica M.
This video gives you an introduction in using a Light Meter and Grey Card in Leica M9 and Leica M240 and Leica S Digital Photography for better exposure and color, mainly in portraiture.

Fashion photographer Scott Morvay illustrates two techniques for focus bracketing. As he calls them, "body rocking" and "safe cracking."
In this video I go over 2 different focus bracketing methods I use when shooting at Large Apertures on my Leica M9 and M240. Primarily on Leica Noctilux or Summilux lenses. It takes time and practice to master.

Scott Morvay created this video and writes, "This is not really a Lens review just some thoughts on it. I am a passionate Leica shooter and use the 50mm .95 As my only M lens. Please note there are minor artifacts in the images from the video sampling/conversion."
