To move the focus



This image is nothing special, but it was interesting to find this very explicit ad for an exhibition at the Leopold Museum.


This photo was taken by Magnus L Andersson in (/, ) using a Leica M Monochrom (M9) with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH.


I would most probably not have taken this photo if it was not for the people in the background that in a way became a contrast to the nudity.

As with many shots this day, I had by mistake adjusted the exposure compensation. However, in this case, it did not really have any impact on the rest of the settings.


Processing by Magnus L Andersson


To adjust for the unintended exposure compensation, I added an Exposure of +0.5. The Polaroid 665 Negative HC (Affinity) emulation is a bit of favorite by its increased exposure of the mid-tones that works very well for this type of image.

Media coverage

This image could once also be found on Instagram. However, Instagram considered the nudity offense and removed it and also enforced a “shadow ban” for our account for time being. However, it can also be found at Fotosidan.
