Seeing things monochrome: Black & White Films and the Belair

One of the best things about analogue photography is being able to change what the real world looks like. Cross-processing a slide film will give you extreme color shifts. Using black and white film also lets you change the way that things look. See some fine black and white images created with the Belair X 6-12 after the jump.

“Gargoyles, standing, in front of your gate, trying to tell me to wait.” Lyrics by Lana Del Rey, from one of her songs called, as chance would have it, Bel Air. Lyrics that evoke an estranged feeling. One way to capture a feeling like this on your analogue photos is using black and white films.

People usually do not see the world in black and white. That’s one of the reasons good black and white images might strike us as otherworldly, classy and timeless. With the Belair X 6-12 you can use all kinds of medium format black and white films, of course. We have two Lomography black and white films ready for you that you might want to give a spin once you have your hand on the Belair. The Lomography Earl Grey 100 and the Lomography Lady Grey 400 both feature fine grain and will give your shots the feel of having been made in some already-bygone time.
