Five Black and White Square Photos That Wowed Us


It takes creativity and talent to capture breathtaking black and white photographs. Learning to balance shadows and highlight, using light effectively, and bringing out the details are essential for timeless shots. We're sure you'll be inspired with these photos that caught our attention!

1. Exit the Void

It pays to be in the right place at the right time. This silhouette emerging from darkness and walking into the light really caught our eye. Shooting in mixed lighting situations requires a high ISO film, which makes the Lomography Lady Grey 400 120 a great choice for this photo. If you're lucky, the film backing will show up and add a cool detailed texture.

2. Discover a Secret Portal

Sometimes, the perfect subject is just right under your nose. Or, in this case, feet. The stunning reflection of trees in the puddle look like a portal to a secret forest. The next time you're out and about, keep an eye on surprise scenes like this!

3. Monochromatic Mystery

Here, light is minimal yet powerful, resulting in a somewhat creepy-but-cinematic portrait.

4. Two-Faced

5. Double Vision

Multiple exposures can be tricky in black and white, since details can easily blend into a confusing mess. But this photo by Community member goonies proves that it's still possible to create a cool image simply by pairing silhouettes and textures with a more detailed subject.
