These pictures were shot in April 2020, in Bangkok , with a Leica Mini 3 and the film Kodak TX 400. I’ve chosen black and white film because it’s the best medium to capture the atmosphere of a city. Film captures the light, the vibrations, the mood of a scene.

I’ve been shooting with a Leica M6 TTL for 3 years. This was my only film camera, and my only lens is a Noctilux f/0.95 . I love this camera and I’ve been shooting portraits, landscapes, street photography etc… However, it’s not a light combo. And I take it with me when I really have a purpose. On many occasions, when I had not something special to shoot but still wanted to keep a souvenir from a nice day of walk or visit, I didn’t take my M6, but instead, I was buying a disposable camera. And it was fun. But of course there are huge limitations in terms of lens quality, focus, and type of film availability. So I decided to buy a film point and shoot camera, to have a camera always with me.

I shot this pictures in Hua Hin, a beach resort in Thailand. I used a Leica M6 TTL and the lens Leica Noctilux 50mmf/0.95 .The film is Ilford 3200, metered and developed at speedbox. I started to shoot at sunset until it was dark. The high ISO 3200 was necessary and the last pictures were shot wide open at f/0.95 because there was not more light available.
For the first 6 pictures, there was too much light for ISO 3200 so I used a Heliopan filter Yellow 8 . It block 1.5 steps of lights and at the same time it enhances the contrast.
