melissa with my love by cweeks melissa with my love by cweeks
this is melissa. melissa is hot. i don't fucking care if she can act.

she's also a shooter.

holga.

rolli.

she's also dating a friend of mine but they're not "public" as it were. so ... enough about her name. enough about my friend.

did i mention that she's hot?

canon eos 1d mark 2 with 24-70/2.8L. 500 iso. 200th at 2.8 or 3.2. converted to b/w using custom actions in ps cs. scrimmed natural light camera right. foam coar camera left and down a bit.

Love this shot and I could not resist including it in my latest news article on vintage cameras as art. Ya I know this isnt a vintage, but arent all Leicas instant historical classics! News article: [link]

Peeking eyes behind cameras are just the cutest thing ever. Great shot - love the gentle tones and the light.

Ok this shot = pure sex/bliss
Good looking lady + Sexay Leica.
I just started shooting film with a Yashica Electro 35 and I would love to expand my rangefinder collection. Should I go for a Bessa R2 or should I go on a ramen diet, and save up for a real mans toy and get a new Leica?

Her right eye is totally the best part.

The left is hot but I find the right more interesting.

Fucking depth of field man... spot on. I would never have thought to have the lens out of focus.

Great work. Again you amaze me!

What do you use for digital black and whites in PS? I hope you don't mind me asking...

damn, I first noticed the Leica in the thumbnail, then the girl. Am I sick?

A girl and a Leica, a de ja vý, heh? Rodschenko...

Anyway, I would never part from _my_ baby and give it other hands :)
Reply
:iconcweeks:
cweeks Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2005
no ... i would do the same thing ... no matter how friggin' hot she is!

my babies leave my hands regularly ... i lend out my leicas to my other shooter friends on a regular basis.

great girl, great portrait, but i fuckin want your cam :D

cweeks Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2005
i have three of them ... and ... you can't have any. ;)

just get a used one from the seventies or sixties. a used piece of good glass and you're good to go!

i have a kodak retina reflex III with a bunch of schneider lenses, pretty cheap and works like new (which is the result of knowing a guy who built them 40 years ago and tool all of the last parts when they stopped production - i have a new shutter for almost nothing)... i really prefer that cam instead of my nikon F80... or i';m shooting with an Rollei SL66 from uni... awesome piece of cam :)
I like rangefinders, too, but still didn;t find a decent one :)
Reply
:iconcweeks:
cweeks Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2005
loved schneiders when i shot view cams.

no longer into that. like the immediacy of moments too much to ever go back.

love the sl66. but one of the reasons i went to leica is the fact i don't have to shoot medium. the reso is just so there.

hunt for the decent one, mate, hunt. it's a worthy quarry.

dang. why the hell did I never reply!?
I have no clue :)

I'm shooting 35mm again... because university still doesn;t have a decent medium format scanner... and I don't have the money for it :|
so I'm still hunting :D

cweeks Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005
it's all good, mate.

shooting 35mm film BRAVO!!!!!!!

i don't have a decent medium format scanner either ...

if you need any help please send me a note and we'll email.

i have some sources.
