Portraits of Charcoal Factory Workers

Recently I shot a series of portraits of workers at a charcoal factory. The photos were shot using the Leica M with the 35mm Summicron ASPH. I had the intention to use also the a 50mm focal length lens but due to the dusty environment inside the factory I decided not to change lens. (Click the image for sharper resolution)

Some Sample Photos from My Leica Monochrome

I received my new Leica Monochrome (Leica MM) last week. I took the opportunity to do a series of test shot during my business trip to China. The shooting was done using the 35mm Summicron ASPH and a Canon 50mm 1.4 LTM classic lens. I am very impressed with the photo quality captured with the Canon 50mm 1.4 LTM lens. The classic lens is able to produce sharp and high contrast photos even with the “wide-opened” aperture.

Here are the sample photos captured with the Leica MM and Canon 50mm F1.4 LTM :
