The images were taken with the Nikon EM, an SLR camera from Nikon. I developed the black and white film in the all-purpose weapon of black and white developers, Rodinal. for eight minutes with a ratio of 1+50. Beautiful days can be captured with the black and white film for preservation and documentation in the future.
The first roll of film looks really good to me. I fell in love with the great retro look, as the images seem to have come from the 50s. I was pleased that almost all the pictures have become something. The photos just have something special about them. The wide range of gray tones with a deep black and pure white colors that the Lomography Earl Grey offers is beautiful. For skin tones, especially, it gives a lovely silky coat in light gray.
After the first roll of this black and white film, I have to try it in another one of my cameras. Now, the only question is, shall I try it with the LC-A+, Canon AE-1, or Spinner 360, the great panorama camera from Lomography?

Wilson Lee is not new to Lomography. He has taken photos using the Petzval Lens, and produced stunning results. Before going back to London to finish his master's degree, he used the New Russar+ lens and Lomography Lady Grey film to preserve his memories of his hometown, Hong Kong, in black and white.
Its stunning tones, smooth grain, and overall elegant monochrome look have inspired fellow lomographers to pen odes of praise—well, reviews, actually. Find out how the Lomography Lady Grey 400 (35mm) fared right here.
New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.
