    Fuji Unscientific Fuji X100VI and Ricoh GRIIIx B&W mode comparison

    Ok, bear with me while I do some explaining. The process I followed was to set the Fuji to "Acros+R filter" and the Ricoh to "HiBw" for shooting. There was no exposure compensation set, ISO was set similarly to auto on both cameras and metering set to spot. I didn't move between each shot...

    Compact camera with B&W in mind

    If you were to look for a compact camera with the idea that you mainly want to shoot in B&W, what camera would you look into? That is basically where I am right now. I am on the very, very front end of searching for a new-to-me camera. I want something that would be easy to have as an everyday...

    B&W First film in 20+

    First outing with film in 20+ years. The camera is an Asahi Pentax "AP," which you can read about elsewhere. I bought it to get the lens that was attached. The lens appears to have some issues, but the camera doesn't. Image was only corrected for exposure and contrast. Ilford HP5 Plus...

    B&W Here's a few of my favorite B&W photos of 2023

    I hardly pulled my camera out the first 9 months of the year, but shot quite a bit the last 3 months of 2023. Here's a few B&Ws I thought might have some merit, and hope to shoot more next year. Thank you. stairs power workers Lenny knobs cattails seaplane

    Ricoh A Handful of GRIIIx Hard Monotone

    The talk of Pentax K3 III Monochrome, as well as developing and scanning some more B&W film (which was rather disappointing, my method with Rodinal didn't suit Kentmere 400 very well, especially in lighting where the LC-A was consistently picking a wide, and therefore soft, aperture value) got...

    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 Shooting 600 B&W in an unmodified SX-70

    I almost always use an Orange or Red filter with my M Monochrom. I like Polaroid 600 film, and buy about 1 B&W for every 2 Color. Original SX-70 cameras will overexpose 600 film by 2 Stops. And Orange filter requires 2 Stops of compensation, a Red filter requires 3 Stops. Brain-Fart. The...

    Film Help with my B&W processing

    I have a nice Canon EOS650 fitted with a 35 -80mm zoom. It takes really nice images. I do the processing myself and then scan them at 4800dpi using my Canon 3000f flatbed scanner. I have just processed two rolls of film and are very disappointed. This one of my previous images take a few weeks...

    Film Has anyone used Ultrafine Finesse B&W film?

    I've seen a lot of photos and comments on Ultrafine Extreme, but almost nothing on the Finesse. It seems mostly well received. Has anyone used it? Love it? Hate it? I'm looking for something less expensive to bulk load, develop learn with. TIA!

    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...

    B&W? or Color?

    Had a shot today that I posted in B&W and I do think it's a very good composition. The question I'm having is between the B&W version vs the same image in color. Thoughts? At this time of year, there isn't all that much color out there; it can make what there is stand out. And yet, the...

    Documentary Washington DC B&W

    Since I've been taking a lot more pictures than I imagined and don't want to clutter up other threads I thought I would start a separate one for those who are interested, or who happen to have more pictures to add. Here are a few more of some murals I came aross.

    Color (Sort of) or B&W?

    I was conflicted about he processing of my post in Day-to-Day today, so I thought I would solicit opinions. While walking around this morning, I saw this sole red flower at the feet of the Statue of St. Francis, so I used the selective color filter to isolate it: I refer to this as St Francis...

    Nikon Showcase Color or B&W? Learning Capture One

    So got done at work last evening and there was still a bit of light. Now I’ve spent a little time playing with the files in Capture One. Which of these variations do you prefer? Or perhaps the better question is why? The B&W seems boring somehow and I'm not sure how come. The color and light...
