Practice is the right way to go, with mostly everything, and photography is no exception to the ‘rule’. Even though I’m far from mastering the more technical aspects of picture-taking, I got supa-dupa excited about shooting B&W film and couldn’t wait to finish the roll and see the results. It’s funny to realize that at the time being taken, some shots had been envisioned in a completely different way in my mind. I guess that’s what you get when you’re used to capture the world in technicolour ;)
Photographs in black and white have a certain je-ne-sais-quois to them and with the results of this first roll of film already in my hands and before my eyes, I can now work with subjects, expectations and shadow play to render better pictures. These aren’t perfect but they’ve already become quite special. To me.
What do you think? :)
