Rambling with Ricoh in February (2)

One of the reasons I’m giving the Ricoh an airing each month are the additional B&W modes it offers. High contrast mono gives gritty greys or clean, brisk contrasts if the exposure is increased. Text mode virtually inks the outlines  – appealing in its own right but also makes good basis for photoart edits *

In this collaged couplet, the subject and its reflection were given slightly different exposure levels to the contrasts

      1. I really like it too Laura – I started in BW film 😃
        I think you’re right – we find what we like, but it’s good to appreciate all.
        Looking forward to more 😃
