Day at the Zoo (B/W Pictorial)

Post by blowfish89 » Mon Nov 04, 2019 9:39 pm

I decided to explore my new Fuji X100F, and spent a day at the Toronto zoo. Posting 15 of the black & white (Fuji Arcos B&W filter) pics I took (everything is unedited JPEG from camera).
Hope you like it :thumbup:

I love vintage, and yes, I could probably frame these photos and feel like they were taken in the 60s :-)

Since this is a watch forum, here is my vintage watch

Terrific photos. I love black and white and have always been a big Ansel Adams fan.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much Kip. I’m an amateur but I’m starting to love them too. B/W just forces you to compose better and think deeper before taking a picture, if that makes sense.

Some great shots there, Om.

I used to do a lot of B/W photography with film and darkroom, and am getting back into it digitally.

These are standard colour iPhone shots I took in Cyprus last year and enhanced using the iPad software. We used to use different filters (especially) red on the camera to make skies etc. more dramatic, and I tried to emulate this on the iPad.
