I guess it’s safe to say that some things just look way better in black and white. Take these classy-looking photos from the community as a case in point!

Old-timey photographers used them, artsy shooters prefer them and a horde of Lomographers in our community swear by them! Black and white film is always a great alternative when you want to take a break from color photographs. Introducing classy and vintage-looking black and white photos from the community taken using the LC-Wide.

You can still channel your inner Ansel Adams or Robert Capa when you shoot black and white photos! It doesn’t have to be nature photos of epic proportions or shots from the beaches of Normandy, a simple family gathering or street scene shots will do!

    I love shooting in black and white! I'm hoping to track down some B&W to shoot on my Baby Diana.

    B/W is tool of reduction. It does not only reduce the colors, it also reduces our point of focus to structures or something special in the picture. That is the magic or black and white.
