A Selection of Great Super Dark Black and White Photos


Some months ago we launched an experiment in our playground to search for photos by color. This week we continued working on it and made a lot of different queries. One of them: search for super dark black and white photos – the ones with no saturation and the lowest possible brightness. See a great gallery of those in this article.

In tradition with our previous gallery articles we have a listening recommendation for this one as well: When Night Becomes the Morn by Cosmo Black. So click on “show all photos”, hit play and scroll slowly through the dark selection.

    All are great shots!

    But @recurving, the photo no. 32 looks like a shots from digital camera. This shots - www.lomography.com/homes/jakewheeler/photos/11596560 even stated taken by Nikon D3000. Well @jakewheeler also shoot with Holga 135BC too but it is kind of unfair to put a DC shots in this kind of thread.
