Sweeping, Dramatic Landscape Photographs Taken with the Adox Silvermax B&W

2

Up for a little experimentation on black and white? Why don’t you try shooting with the Adox Silvermax!

The *Adox Silvermax* might seem like your usual black and white film, but it really isn’t. For one, it boasts of a high silver content which gives photographs deep shadows and extreme fine grains – something that no other emulsion can do. Another awesome thing is that once you’re done shooting with it, you can head straight to your darkroom and develop it on your own using various developers!

Check out this small gallery of sample photographs taken by our fellow lomographers using the Adox Silvermax!

The Adox Silvermax is available at Lomography's New Films section, along with other awesome films that would allow you to take photos with special effects. Drop by the Online Shop to get yours now!

    The Beauty of Black and White

    A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
