Have I mentioned how much I love shooting black and white photography on these Fujifilm cameras? Of course that’s a rhetorical question. I’ve talked about it a few times on my YouTube channel. Fuji colors are fantastic and I love them but the look I’m able to achieve with my black and white work is one of the top reasons I love shooting with this system.
It was a tough but necessary decision for me to stop shooting film last year. Two tools I use in my workflow made that decision feasible. The latest one being my EPSON P700 photo printer. The black and white photos that come out of that printer are stunning. A nice B&W photo printed on a sheet of Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta makes me forget about my darkroom printing. And the look I get from my Fujifilm X-H1 & X-T4 (and X-T3 at least for the time being) make me forget about my gorgeous Nikon F3 (ok so maybe there’s some seperation anxiety here. lol) and ILFORD HP5 or KODAK TR-X.
These few B&W samples are just a few photos I took yesterday while parked in a store parking lot. I try carry by small camera bag that holds a camera and lens pretty much where ever I go. I don’t always have the camera in hand but when I see a cool cloudy day like yesterday was, I’m prepared to take advantage and get some cool shots.
I need to dive a bit deeper into the black and white photography using Fujifilm cameras. Let me know if there are specific aspects that you want me to cover or that you’re curious about.
