My Life in Black and White – Morning #1

I love utilizing photography to document, and I also think it’s a great way to practice the basics of photography.  Over the weekend I wanted to try to document my own life using prime lenses and simple black and white.  I loved doing this because it forced me to see things in new and interesting ways and it also made me use the available light.  It’s interesting how one can take the most ordinary of moments – and turn them into something a little less ordinary.

Here are some of the results of “My Life in Black and White.”  This is only one series of many to come i’m sure.

  1. I would like to get a roll of 35mm TMax and do some more B&W myself!! That is of course if TMax is still available!?
    I have a B&W shot on my “Bench” at work of a corn field that I shot using a “Strong Red” filter to contrast the light and dark areas and it just so happened to be my best B&W shot!!
    Contrast filters can be fun and interesting to use in B&W! I also have a “Strong Blue” filter that I would like to experiment with using B&W!!

    Were Your B&W pics done with digital or 35mm?? Since You have a newer Nikon, I’ll guess that they are digital pics?!

    1. Hi Bob!

      I used my Nikon D700 for all of these photos, and a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I really need to experiment with more film though! I still have some left from college that I have yet to use!
