Taiwan B/W – My attempt on black & white photography, part 2

In the first part I wrote a little bit about the beginning and which films I tried. Here are a few more photos. Enjoy!

Some final words

Black and white photography is a nice challenge for me. Learning to see the world in b/w is tricky. Scenes that look great in color, can look pretty dull in b/w. And the other way around, boring color scenes can turn out pretty interesting in b/w. A nice thing about b/w is that I can play more with geometry, shapes, and patterns.

I am still at the beginning and there is so much to try, other films, different filters, exposure…

Also the way I develop films has room for improvements. At the moment it is very basic, and I haven’t tried other developers than Kodak D-76, as well as variations of developing times and so.

And as usual, so many things to do but so less time 😉
