Marcia Ziffren recently took the Monochrom to Cuba. Click through to see all of Marcia’s photos and read her thoughts on shooting black and white in a place as colorful as Havana: http://www.leicastorela.com/the-monochrom-in-cuba/

The people of Cuba left an indelible impact on photographer Marcia Ziffren: “They were just extraordinary loving, soulful people who are living in conditions many wouldn’t even want to visit, yet they have a joy for life and it comes across in every aspect of their living.”

Come back tomorrow for the full gallery of Marcia’s journey to Cuba

Marcia Ziffren recently took her Monochrom to Cuba and the result is full of warmth: “In L.A and in a number of cosmopolitan U.S. cities, people are very uncomfortable with having their photo taken; they’re guarded and worried about what you’re going to do with the picture. But, in a place like Havana, there isn’t the same problem.”

Why use the Monochrom in Cuba? “I can get to the essence of the story.” Join us this week online as we share our friend Marcia Ziffren’s journey to Cuba.

The Leica S System at Salton Sea

The Leica S System’s 12-stop dynamic range makes it a natural fit for landscape photographers accustomed to using the zone-system. These photos of the Salton Sea were made by Gary Faye, an accomplished photographer whose work has appeared in print and galleries throughout the country. Gary attended several Ansel Adams workshops toward the beginning of his photographic career and took those fundamentals to develop the distinct style we see in these breathtaking photos. Thank you, Gary!

The Leica S and Dynamic Range

The Leica S system’s wide dynamic range is on display in this photo from young photographer Marley Maron of the Thousand Oaks Public Library.  Even though her exposure was set perfectly for an interior shot, you can see the trees in daylight outside of the window. The expressive freedom opened up by this range is a hallmark of the Leica S. 

Visit the store to try it for yourself! The Leica S and full range of lenses are available for rent from our store:
