not everyone will agree with me, but right now my favorite black & white photographs highlight the beautiful mid-tones that you can get using B&W film. not the high-contrast images (although i do like those, too) but photos of greys and silvers, flat tones and light.
that’s what i was looking for in my first roll this month, and i think i found it. i am really pleased with this film type. i’ll have more from the roll to share over the coming days.
and before the week is over, i’ll also show you some B&W photographs that are particularly inspiring to me right now – some of them are good examples of the grey & silver tones that i am talking about.
on my shopping list today: a copy of mr. natural from nicholas gottlund. this book of B&W photos looks great.
**i have a list of B&W films that i plan to try out and use this month, so i’ll share the type of film i’ve used for your reference.
