    Nightclubbing Hi Contrast B/W Street Style

    I get the right royal hump at photo club competitions where the winning entry is almost always a portrait of a woman, pouty trout lips, push up boobs, suggestive pose and a created background thingy (can't remember what it is called). This is the reason I started going to "weird night clubs"...

    Sleepless....Not in Seattle.

    A noir of long & lonely nights, Shadows a’dance whilst darkness fights, I lay tormented, restless, weep, Eternal endlessness without sweet sleep. Thro’ curtains, streetlights mocking seep, Exhaustion a mountain, a climb too steep Past regrets and memory haze, The whispered lies and secrets...

    Fashion has changed

    Calgary Ladies did not look the same as they do now! In many ways I prefer this old style. One of the above ladies became a Miss Canada contestant, popular model, a highly skilled criminal lawyer, and a teacher of law. She married a well respected musician in the classical and jazz world.

    New to B&W Photography

    Hi all. I'm new here and just really getting started having developed a love of Black & White photography during my workshop sessions at Uni. I've had some experience with making a pinhole camera and am just looking to buy a Holga 120mm and a Canon Canonet QL17 GIII. So any advise you can...

    Film Orange is the New Black and White (correction factor)

    I made a filter holder out of a Plastic Case for a CF memory Card. I used the Polaroid Orange filter made for the folding pack cameras. This filter turns the 600 B&W into a high-contrast response. Too high for shooting people. Some interesting effects. I am going back to the color correction...

    MAS, Antwerp

    MAS = Museum by the Stream (Scheldt) A kind of special looking building. Worth a visit on its own, plus there's access to the observation platform on the roof where you get a great view of the city and the Scheldt. This is from a visit some time ago

    Caldwell House, Cataloochee Valley, GSMNP

    My wife and I explored a new place we hadn't been in the GSMNP. The Catalooche Valley was very beautiful and worth the extra time to visit. These images are of the Hiram Caldwell house, built in 1903. Shot with the Rokinon 20mm 1.8 on the K1.

    Analog fun

    Today I had a relaxing afternoon in my chemistry corner. From simple substrates I assembled an Agfa A300 fixer and two classic Kodak D-23 and D-76 developers. Do any of you still play with assembling photographic concoctions on your own? For me this hobby is an excellent relaxation, better than...

    Square Format

    One of the things I miss in not shooting film anymore is medium format, especially the square format of so many great cameras. Rather than go to the expense of finding a still functional camera system (they were all systems) I thought I’d experiment a bit with my post processing software…...

    A question for all those who shoot B&W...

    I usually shoot color pictures. Do you use the B&W mode (if your camera has one) or do you change the exposure to B&W in a post processing program? Just curious as I had changed one exposure I made using my software program and a lot of people thought it was a really nice image. I'm wondering...

    The Urban Setting/Landscape

    I'm thinking of urban shots not really considered "street" (which I always think of -- perhaps erroneously -- as exclusively people shots), shots of buildings of interest maybe, the "urban landscape" in its kaleidoscopic entirety. Albuquerque is hardly urban in the same sense that major big...

    I decided to do something a bit different this evening. I had about an hour to kill before an appointment and wanted to do a short bit of exploring and creating.
