One Leica. One Lens. One Film. One Year.
My name is Sean. I am an amateur film photographer that lives in Seattle.
Inspired by this article and My Leica Year photoblog I decided to start this project. My photoblog here will track my progress along the way. I'll be using my Leica M4 with a 50/2 Dual Range Summicron. For film choice, I'll be shooting with Fomapan 400.

After finishing my Leica Year project I took a month or so off from photography. I focused on trying to pick a few padlocks I have at home with a new lockpick set I acquired. Cleansing the palette, as it were. When I decided to pick up my Leica again, Erin was ready to sitting in front of my camera. It wasn’t a big photoshoot (but then again, none of my shoots ever are) but it felt nice to use the camera in a relaxing manner. Not that the Leica Year project was laborious, it just felt that getting to the finish line was always a long way off. I’m happy that I did it but I’m happy that it is done.
The Leica Year…what can I say?
A year (and then some) has come and gone. It ends with:
But those are just the numbers. I really came out of this project with an understanding of what I like to shoot and what I am good at shooting. I learned that these can be two different things and there is no weakness in that being the case.
I also acquired a sense of accomplishment. I started this with thinking I was really crazy to try it. A year with one camera, one lens, and one type of film?! I look at my other cameras that have been sitting on my shelf this whole time, and see a light layer of dust upon them. I’m surprised I made it to the end.
This is the end…kinda. I still have photos to get printed and framed. And I want to put those images in a photobook as well. I’ll be posting progress on those fronts here.
To everyone that encouraged, followed and faved this tumblr, thank you. It is nice to get the encouragement while I was doing the project. Nice to know there are folks that like photos on films as much as I do.
The third, final set of favorites.
The second set of favorites.
I figured I would showcase sets of my favorites as well. Here are the first 5.
