"The Berlin Workshop is still resonating with me. It was truly a great experience, and was really nice to meet you and your family!"

 
  - T. S. (Canada)  

 

Happy Birthday, my Leica!

Denmark, July 2, 2015

Today I brought out my Leica DMR again from the Pelican Flightcase it had been stowed away in while I have been using other cameras. Today is its 10th year birthday!

See the updated article here:

Leica Q Type 116 Hemingway
It's been 10 years since the 10MP digital back came out.

 

 

     
 

"As someone who always reads a lot of reviews prior to purchasing a new camera, I must say that your review of the Leica Q is by far the most complete, well written and satisfying review I have ever come across. This is all I wished to say. Just a few words of gratitude and admiration."

 
  - M. K. (Seoul)  

 

 

Winner of I-SHOT-IT.COM Black & White Competition

San Francisco, USA, July 6, 2015

The winner of the I-SHOT-IT Black & White Photo Competition has been announced. See at I-SHOT-IT.COM.

Sponsored by Leica Camera AG. Judged by Birgit Krippner and Thorsten Overgaard.

 


The winner of the 2/2015 I-SHOT-IT.COM Black & White Photo Competition.

 

     
 

"My overall goal taking part in the Rome Workshop, was to focus much at the light, which I can transfer to future photo and television news stories that I produce. And I got it.

The hands on practice and advice from Thorsten benefits both experienced pro´s like my self, and amateurs who wants to step up a level. So with my tired feets walking around hot Rome, I now will go back and let the experiences and inspiration go into my photography works. You are newer to old, too experienced or (especially) too good to learn."

Famous in Aarhus

Aarhus, Denmark, 2015

I stumbled over this story on the Aarhus City library stite today. It's a little feature about Terry and Robin visiting the local library in Aabyhøj, Denmark evert day reading and doing school work (when we are in Denmark). When we travel, they usually visit local libraries in Hong Kong, Jakarta, Munich, etc.

✿En lille historie fra Åby Bibliotek✿Det her er Terry (til venstre) og Robin. De kommer tit på Åby Bibliotek, faktisk...

Posted by Lokalbibliotekerne i Aarhus on Wednesday, May 27, 2015

 

 

     
 

"Amazingly detailed review of the Leica Q which is getting rave reviews by even the most jaded photo writers. This review is in fact almost a user manual by Thorsten von Overgaard. If it ain't mentioned here , you don't need to know about it!"

 
  - N. R. (Australial)  

 

 

To be, or not to be, that is the Q

Aarhus, Denmark, July 12, 2015

My first user report on the Leica Q is online and well visited. Today I did an update again, comparing the Leica Q 28mm Summilux and the Leica M 28mm Summilux.

"I've read your fantastic article about the Leica Q tonight. Well done! The most important part for me was the beginning, the discussion about what is photography and what to be delivered by a camera. And you're right about the Digilux 2, it was the first time bringing analog logic to digital world"

 
  - P. P. (Germany)

Duck family visit

We had unexpected visit of a mother and her 8 newborns today. They walked in the courtyard and must have walked a few blocks to get here. For a moment they considered moving into the house.
