The Switch (Sort of)


As I'm sure you've seen on this blog, as far as film goes, I was kind of always partial to the color side of the film world.  I centered so much of what my pictures were around the color.  I bought my first "Pro Pack" of Kodak Tri-X black and white film and put it through my Hasselblad and I'll just let the results speak for themselves.  I'm purposely not going to say much about the specific pictures and just let them be seen they way you want to.  Dev'd and scanned by Indie Film Lab by the way.

I'm in love.  I've been bitten by the bug in black and white.  The images just seem so powerful and I love the idea of just capturing pure light, rather than the full color spectrum.  (Sorry color.  You still have a special place in my heart.)

So here's where the "Sort of" part comes into play.  At the time I was taking this pictures (and obviously hadn't seen the black and white shots yet), I still shot two rolls of color.  So I'm still going to post them here... I know, I know.  These were taken in Prescott, Arizona, and I'm still happy with how these turned out and I'm not going to be giving up on color all together.  These were taken with my Hasselblad 500C/M and with both Kodak Portra 160 and 400.
