Dad challenged me to shoot a better portrait with my Leica SL + Noctilux than that of my uncle's relatively cheap Lumix. Of course, this reminds me of the story about the photographer taking a portrait of Ernst Hemingway. As the photographer was setting up his camera, Hemingway asked which brand camera it was. The photographer answered some model and make, upon which Hemingway commented that it was a famous camera and that the portrait was going to be great for sure. The photographer then asked Hemingway which kind of typewriter he used. It had to be a good one, since so much of Hemingway's work is amazing. [End of story]

Less than flattering light in this candid portrait, but I just had to have one of my uncle in here. He is one of the most, perhaps THE most, informed and clever people I know.
