I’ve never really shot with a rangefinder. Oh sure, I’ve played around with one here and there. Made a few snaps with a friend’s or another photographer’s that I was working with. Rangefinders are cool. But, so expensive and kitschy… not really for me. I never really gave it too much more thought.
I recently stumbled on this video produced by Leica Camera. In the video Craig Semetko explains that using a rangefinder can really be beneficial to a photographer who is normally accustomed to shooting with only an SLR. Give it a watch and see if, like me, it gives you any ideas about how we learn, given our current circumstances. I really think this video has a lot more to offer than just how to shoot a camera!
