A while ago, whilst on a poodlewalk with Ari, I spent an afternoon playing around at Kings Head with my Leica M4-P and some slow black and white film that I’d purchased by mistake from a photoshop in Adelaide. I was after 120 black and white film.
By “playing around” I mean that I was exploring the possibilities of black and white, slow film and shallow depth of field combination. I scanned the negatives (35mm + 6×6) yesterday when I was at Encounter Studio in Victor Harbor. The results are quite okay for 35mm.
Normally I only make black and white pictures when I’m working with the Rolleiflex SL66 on a tripod using colour film. I’ve started to quickly change film backs and take the same picture in black and white, just to see what it looks like. Some work okay.
