Since I started taking black and white film photos again back in July, I've noticed something. People like them a lot, on average more than my other pictures.
I'm not sure if it's that I take these photographs differently, because I know they are single shots on a limited medium, and will lack colour, so I compose and shoot them more carefully than others.
Or perhaps it's just that they are striking purely because they don't have colour and people aren't used to that anymore, epecially online. Maybe if I converted some of my other pictures to B&W, they might get a similar response too.
I know I enjoy making those images. It's pricey compared to digital photography, but that's part of what makes them different too.
