Black x White Emotion

226200012857002728570004Kyle look downMy film photography efforts are taking a turn for all things black x white. After reading Ed Templeton’s recent interview on Leica’s blog, I have been inspired to better capture life in a “timeless quality”. Although I’ve only shot two rolls of BxW, they have a depth that resonate with me. I see this as a challenge; more so respecting the feel each image will have. I believe capturing images in black x white film will enhance the emotion of the shot, and that’s pretty powerful.
