Chic, classic and timeless, our black & white film is a constant favorite for shooting Polaroid photography with an artistic touch. It captures moments in vivid contrasts of deep blacks and dazzling whites, and brings the shades of a scene to life (not to mention, it’s our fastest developing film yet!)
Here’s a few of our personal tips for getting the best results with black & white film, whatever format you shoot.
Up the exposure.
Polaroid cameras love light, and they love it even more when you’re only working with shades of black & white. Before shooting, raise the exposure dial or slider on your camera slightly, and you’ll be able to capture every detail.
Light and shade.
Black & white film is perfect for capturing contrast, bringing compositions to life in a spectrum of glorious greyscale. Experiment with angles and framing to bring a new perspective to your portraiture and still life photography.
Look up, down, all around.
One of the best things to shoot on black & white is architecture. It really unlocks the shapes and lines in a shot. Try shooting your walk to work from a different angle, or transforming a familiar view into an abstract composition.
