[Ongoing] Show & Tell: Black and White Photography
more_vert
I'm a sucker for the drama and simplicity of a classic black and white photo. There's something so great about using that minimalism and grain to your advantage, letting the composition stand on its own. I love that feeling when you're flicking through insta filters, and you see your photo in b/w and all of a sudden -boom! It's even better!
I'm a little embarrassed that I have about 7 rolls of b/w film I haven't developed yet to enjoy or share, but at least there's always my beloved iPhone. Below are 2 photos taken in the last year, one with my trusty Canon AE-1 on Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, and the other with my tiny apple device here in SF at Sutro Baths. You'll never guess which is which. lol jk.

Yeah sure, I'll play :) I'm a hobbyist out of Toronto, Canada and shoot primarily Nikon. Or should I say I did since I've sold off my equipment (looking to start over with a lighter setup.)

I find myself working more in IR to get the extreme contrast for my black and whites

These images were made with my Canon ELAN II, Carl Zeiss 50mm 1.4 and Ilford FP4 Plus 125 film through out Chicago. I rarely shoot B&W film as I'm happy with results of converting the C-41 & E-6 I develop at home in to B&W in Lightroom plus that's more chemicals I don't have to deal with but once in a while I'll run a roll through my 35mm or medium format and I'm blown away by the results fresh off of the scanner.

I shoot almost entirely on B&W film, usually high speed so I can shoot at night. Also love the grain it produces. I'm not really a fan of the larger-than-life look that modern digital photography produces, so I go in the opposite direction and use grain to create other worlds. I post on IG @photoautomata if you're interested in more

I do a lot of college athletics photography and loved this one I took of a UMass wide receiver against Coastal Carolina this season. -Brian Foley/Foley-Photography IG: FoleyPix

Nice shooting, which camera body are you using? The gradients are fantastic.

Thanks! It was my trusty Nikon D850, with a Sigma Art 35mm.
