As I said before, I am new to this, so I am playing around with as much different films as I can get my hands on. There was this fuss about Kodak T-Max a while ago, so I decided to get one and try...Have a look!
I must confess I am not the scientific type of lomographer, that takes analogue to a new level, nor the crazy type whose photographs are just mad, in a good way.
I’m old fashion, I like clean and tidy photograhs, amazing landscapes, beautiful portraits.
I like to record the moment, that eye catching moment, and keep it forever. As beautiful as I saw it, as I lived it.
I must, also, confess that I’m in love with black and white photography, it has so much class. Especially portraits, everyone looks nicer in black and white. It gives me that clean and tidy image which I look for.
As I said, I got my hands on a Kodak T-Max 100 ISO B&W film and decided to give it a try, let me show you my results:
The first thing I loved was how beautiful the portraits came out, tidy and clean even in lower light conditions:
In higher light conditions, it doesn’t give you as much contrast as you would like, but the photos still came out very classy:
Another thing I loved about the film was that it is not grainy:
Some other photos I took with it:
I am falling more and more in love with B&W photography; it’s true that some things need color, but it is also true that some just must be in black and white. It’s old school but it’s also class.
I really liked this film, but I can’t really say it’s my favorite. I’ve used other B&W films before and also loved them. Just have a look at my results, and whenever you decide to try black and white, this one is a good option.
Have lomo fun!
