The GR is a kick ass camera for streets, everyone knows this. How does it fare as a portraiture camera?
Between the Leica + Noctilux and the GR, i often find that they both complement each other perfectly. The GR takes very sharp images but the tones are really beautiful when doing simple LR (lightroom, an app from adobe) adjustments. The Leica on the other end, does very reactive ccd tones. The preset i made for Nicole’s shoot (see my previous blog) doesn’t work at all on the GR, but simple LR on GR does all the magic, particularly saturation++.
Here are some images that i applied the VSCO film presets in LR.
The GR has been a very flexible and indispensable backup camera that i bring along everywhere when bringing a leica is cumbersome or risky.
