A quintuple of black and white

A couple of weeks ago I ventured out with the camera. The weather wasn’t too good and neither was the light but I decided to put together this quintuple of black and white images.

Now if you are of a certain age and had a darkroom, you will know the nuances of using different papers and developers.

The best, richest blacks I ever got always seemed to be with Kentmere paper. The Kodak and Ilford papers of the time just didn’t seem to compare. Now I realise this is purely subjective, but that was what I found.

Either way its not quite the same on a monitor. I’m not saying one is better than the other, they are just …….different.

Each with their strengths and weaknesses.

Camera/lens: Nikon D5300, Nikkor 70-300mm AF-P DX VR.
