Shot of Viesta on Silbersalz35 by

Just a cute devil on Silbersalz35

As part of my yearly project of 2019 I did shoot with Viesta. And just for fun I shot a roll of Silbersalz35 500T with my Leica with her.

– Leica M6 TTL
– Zeiss 50mm f1.5
– Silbersalz35 500T
– Color shift in Photoshop

In a nutshell it is for me one of the easiest ways to shoot on a tight spot with my Leica and a 50mm. It gives me the freedom to shoot quickly and compose easy the frame. I especially enjoy the viewfinder of the Leia. With its frame lines you see what is around the image. That makes it easier for me to recompose and get a better idea how I could improve the shot.
Furthermore, I love the negative scans you get back from Silbersalz35. I find it always hard to scan my own color negatives and find the right color sience for them. Silbersalz35 helps me there a lot. Still i have the feeling of not good color sience and look but I guess this is a constant process to improve.
In addition, it is quite easy to shoot with a model like Viesta. You don’t need to worry about the posing etc. because if you dislike one, you will like the next one or simply can say: “Do something different”. It is so easy to shoot through a roll of 35mm if you have such a great model and that more or less all on one spot.
In the end it was also lucky for me that the available light gave me somehow quite a great light at that moment of the session with the perfection amount of sunlight and soft cloudy light. Sometimes you got the be lucky.
I hope my thoughts give you a little insight how I work and with what I struggle with. And please support the awesome folks at Silbersalz35!!!

  1. Bonjour Michael,
    Je t’écris avec un grand plaisir après d’avoir découvert ton travail grâce à Michael Fernandez (@photosculptart). Il m’a contacté pour travailler ensemble du 24-30 octobre à Zurich. Vu que j’aurais pas mal de temps pendant cet temps je suis en train d’organiser mon agenda pour la remplir avec des autres shootings.
    Bon d’abord, je suis danseuse contemporaine et modele de nu artistique, j’ai 24 ans, je viens d’Espagne et je suis actuellement basée à Bordeaux. Vu ton travaille, je me suis dit que ça serait vraiment cool de travailler ensemble et créer de belles photos. De coup, je t’invite à visiter mon profil d’Instagram (@joanamillet8) ou MM (Joana Millet) où j’ai la plupart de mon travail et puis, j’espère que il te plairait. Donc si c’est le cas je me suis dit que ça serait un vrai plaisir de se mettre d’accord pour les dates et pouvoir échanger notre deux univers. Je serai ravi de lire ton retour!
    Merci beaucoup et j’espère avoir de vos nouvelles bientôt.
