The Film Diaries #2

For this outing I brought along my Leica M3 w/ Summicron 50mm and the Yashica MAT-124. These are my favorite walk around film cameras at the moment. I decided to challenge my skills a bit and eyeball all of my exposures and setting without the aide of a light meter. The M3 does not have an internal light meter and the one on the Yashica is broke. Needless to say, the results were surprising. I suppose I shouldn't say it like that. I've been shooting for some years now and stuff like exposure, composition, etc. should come naturally at this point, and most of it does. But not relying on a meter was liberating and gave me more time to focus on the other things.
