This is one of my Dads. Among many things he loved black and white photography. He had a dark room in the garage. This is a bad copy that I took a picture of with my digital camera so it sucks but you get the idea. The building and picture are much more clear in the original. I believe that's the Empire state building in the back viewed from Central Park circa 1976.

I never tried it with black and white film, but I like turning some of my digitals black and white:

Love B&W photography!

My favorite is Henri Silberman. He did a lot of NYC photography in B&W. A google search of Henri Silberman yields a wealth of his work.

I have a few of his photo's hanging in my office, I get lost in them.

See the correction in bold. If it was clear you could not 'see' anything.

BTW: I started in B&W about 30 years ago. Great stuff.

I like B/W Photography much more than color, I love Ansel Adams' work

Love it. There's a heck of a lot more to it than you'd think.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 1:52:46 PM EDT
I used to not like it....I was strictly a color guy.
Anymore I prefer BW or Sepia to color.
Much more powerful.

I was a newspaper photographer in the 80s. I processed and printed B&W pictures every day –– 20 rolls or more every day. I practically pissed D-76.

Funny story. My Dad bought a original Ansel Adams photo. He wanted to buy more, but didn't have the money. I think he paid $300 for it back in the early 70's. I'm not sure the year. It's worth alittle more than that now

I can't be the only person who read this thread as something like, "Who likes black on white pornography?"

Uh-oh, maybe I am......

I've heard of people watching movies in black and white. I mean turning off the color on there TV for modern films and saying it looks much more nuanced and dream like.

I love B&W, Sepia, ect. I was actually a photography student when I got the part-time job that has turned into a 20+yr career.

I once saw a set of wedding photos done in B&W about 20 years ago and must say that I still think they were the best wedding photos I have ever seen. So much thought and care was put into each composition with shadows and sunlight, it was art as far as I was concern.

I like it, with a little creative twist:

i love b/w

Dad taught me to develop and print B&W when I was 14.

This was one of the first I did by myself.

Took this a few years ago on b/w 35mm film

I really need to rescan, this isn't as sharp as the original.
