Add a Touch of Elegance and Drama to Your Photos with the Ilford Delta 100 Film

Old-looking doesn’t always mean out of style. See the sophistication of black and white photos and the traditional elegance they exude in this series of photos from the community.

Calm and composed – those are two words that aptly describe black and white photos that we’re used to seeing when we look at period films and old-school photographs. Don’t get us wrong! Color photography is great but there’s a certain mystique that surrounds black and white photos that make them a rock-solid favorite of many photographers.

These black and white photos from the community are examples of that elegance. See how every simple snap is turned into beautiful and dramatic pieces? That’s the handiwork of the Ilford Delta 100 film. The loving black and white film turns simple scenes into moments frozen in a dramatic fashion. You can almost feel the grain when you put your fingertips on the prints yourself!

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
