My first bit of Black and White

I have never liked black and white photography, I have always thought that it was a way to be able to ignore focussing on colours. I thought that it was lazy. I finally tried making some black and white photos once I got my Leica X1.

My first black and white

Boy, was I wrong


It is actually quite hard to get background separation with a 35mm lens.

Having to focus not on colours, but tones and brightness is so different from anything I have ever tried!

Yep, I like it.

Bearding off

I would recommend that, if you haven’t tried black and white, to go out and shoot it. It’s pretty great, and the classic style is amazing!

Thank you for reading
