Historically, I ‘ve used a number of black and white films, including Ilford FP4 and Ilford Delta 100. Recently I have been using mostly Ilford’s XP2Super chromogenic film.
I use exclusively Ilford’s Multigrade IV RC printing paper – it’s reliable, consistent and I know how it behaves! (I do have some more interesting papers in the fridge, but somehow I never get around to trying them!).
Whether you are just beginning to learn about taking that perfect picture, or have been behind the lens for some time now, finding tips and tricks to help you get the best photograph possible can be easy if you know where to start. Many of us who want to take better pictures have been in fact taking photos for years but are unsure of how to develop the skills necessary to get that one great shot that everyone will WOW over. Color, black and white or even sepia photos are all great ways to express your talents through subjects, but each setting has different aspects that need to be considered when shooting your pictures.
