The Leica Q is an absolute joy to shoot with in low-light. Here's an image taken under the train tracks in Yurakucho, Tokyo. It's an evening shot, with the lights emanating from the izakaya as the only light source. ISO 3200, f/6.3, 1/60th. Full size image here.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed this structure for 1929's International Exposition in Barcelona. A masterpiece of mid-century minimalism, the building is considered a milestone of modern architecture. I photographed it in the spring of 2017, and, having arrived 15 minutes before opening time, was lucky to have the pavilion all to myself for a few minutes. The entire photo series can be viewed in high resolution here.
One of the first shots taken with my Leica Q, this image was made from a moving boat in the port of Amsterdam in September of 2016. Candid photography is all about the luck of capturing an interesting moment, and I think I got lucky here. The small boat being dwarfed by the massive ship, and especially the passengers' expressions, make for an interesting capture. Full-size image here.
I'm very happy with the shot of a Maiko (or Geisha in training) that I recently took in Kyoto. 28mm (the focal length of the Leica Q, which I used for this shot) might not be ideal for portrait photography, but I've come to really like the look I get, barrel distortion and all. It's not necessarily flattering, but it looks interesting to me. I had one chance at this shot and had to act quick, and also had to come in way closer for the shot than she had anticipated (I think I freaked her out a little)... so in the end I'm really pleased with the results.
