I have a special love for black and white. My adoration for black and white film was not love at first sight. I didn't get it at first. What is so special about black and white photography? Because for one, seeing world in a scale of grays was definitely not intuitive to me. Shooting on a black and white film made it even harder. I was no longer given the opportunity to "try it out" by making the conversion in Photoshop or Lightroom. I had to nail it in camera.
After 6 months of shooting nothing but black and white film, I soon realize that seeing gray scale in this colorful world is a trained skill. I don't speak for everyone here, only myself. I had to learn how color, texture, light and many other elements of design that can ultimately affect my final black and white image. In addition, I learned how film's characteristic and density play an important role during the process of making a photograph. It was then that I truly saw the beauty and came to the appreciation of the black and white film.
Here are my favorites black and white film images. Congratulations to you all!
