Analog: Black & White Bars

May 4th, 2011

In all my analog experiments, I don’t often shoot black & white. I just love color too much to act like it isn’t there. Yet, occasionally, I come across results like this shot I took at Hanson Dry in Clinton Hill and a couple others (after the jump).

It was a little surprising to me, honestly. I’d put a roll of Kentmere 400 in so that I could do some more subway shooting, but then ended up just taking pictures wherever I happened to be – which of course included a couple bars. I really liked the results and in hindsight, it makes sense: bars tend to be dark, often with odd lighting – they just call for monochromatic shooting.
So, yesterday I picked up a few black and white roll and plan to spend some time shooting in bars to see what results I find. Stay tuned.
