A DAY WITH RIKESH AND HIS SL2-S

Join Rikesh, The Rake's Social Media Manager & Photographer, as he brings us through his day capturing the streets of London and more.

DUKES

One of my favourite places to spend an evening in London is the famed Dukes Bar. Elegant, sophisticated and known around the world for its martini, created by none other than @alessandro_palazzi, @therake team visited recently for the first time since the pandemic and it was a much needed reminder of how great this city, and @dukesbarlondon, is. They also make a pretty stellar negroni.

Shot using the Leica SL2-S, 50mm 1.4.

Shoreditch

There’s something special about photographing a city like London. A certain moodiness. The darker tones have so many layers so it’s important to have a camera that can really bring the best out of this subtlety. I shot this series for @therake, using @leicastoresg’s new SL2-S, and a combination of the 50mm 1.4, and 35mm. It’s undoubtedly the best bit of equipment I’ve used to date.

The Rake's Review - SL2-S Camera

I am a stickler for detail and the ability to shoot something so intricate — such as this Omega Speedmaster for @therake x @watchfinderofficial — is made that much easier when having a 50mm 1.4 lens. The SL2-S system is brilliant for making something quite tricky to shoot very easy — intuitive, sharp and, most importantly, enjoyable.
