I still struggle with black and white - I've written about it before - but these are a few that worked for me.
Can't quite recall the film I used, probably Tri-X or HP5+ (still working my way through the film I took to Africa and didn't shoot!).
Digital is so much easier than film. But I'm not quite ready to give up on film yet, no matter what. I think it stretches my eye and makes me a more careful photographer. So expect to see more Film Fridays in the future of this blog.
And maybe, one day, medium format! Who knows. :)
