A Selection of Great Super Dark Black and White Photos

2011-09-30 32

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.
