Auto ISO and Manual

Last week I managed to get into old Lincoln city twice at lunch time to do a little street photography.  The first day Monday was a very bright day with high contrast.  As usual I shot in aperture priority and zone focused using f/5.6 or f/8 depending on the situation.  All were with manual ISO.

On the Friday I managed to get into town again.  This was far duller day, much colder with a cold wind and the bright sunshine hiding from us.

I deliberately chose a shooting style I had not tried before using the Leica. Manual mode with Auto ISO.  I defined the minimum shutter speed and the maximum ISO in the settings and then went out to shoot.

Usually Auto ISO is something I use when shooting wildlife to guarantee sharp shots with my Nikons.  On my old Leica M8 it was a little tricky, the problem is that the Leica has very limited viewfinder information so I was never quite sure what was happening.

Still I managed to get a few nice shots from the lunchtime walkabout.
