B&W Pictures

When I was in college and majoring in architecture, I took a photography class. We shot in B&W because we did our own developing and printing, and the professor didn’t want any pretty snapshots. Since then I’ve felt that real photographers shoot in B&W. My camera was a Minolta SR-T 101 which I still have but no longer use. Here are a few of my favorites scanned from the original negatives.

Double Exposure

Someone tightened the film in my camera, causing this unintentional double exposure
