You know you're totally amazed and inspired by the film you've shot with when you make really creative and descriptions about it, like ohlordy did for his awesome black and white album!
Most people would simply say that the snaps below are black and white photos, but for our fellow lomographer ohlordy, that simply won’t do. “Black and white? More like tones of licorice,” he says about his monochrome snaps.
Taken using a Ricoh 500 ME loaded with a Kodak BW 400 CN, the photos do show tones of black, white, and grey instead of the rather flat-looking black and white shades. This Kodak monochrome film can also be processed using C-41 chemicals (yep, CN stands for ‘color negative’), making it a popular option for black and white photography enthusiasts!
So, do you think ohlordy’s description is accurate?

In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
