I Shot a Roll of Black and White Film at Night in Washington, D.C.
I spent a night shooting a roll of black-and-white film around downtown DC. These are the results.
Camera: Nikon FM-2 | Film: Kodak Tri-X 400TX
I will admit, this was a true run-and-gun, barebones shoot.
I didn’t bring a tripod, everything was handheld, and my internal light meter was broken.
Despite the challenges, I wanted to see what exactly I could capture with what little I had at my disposal and experiment.
Overall, I was stunned by the results.
The vast majority of the roll did not turn out, but the few that did give off a film noir vibe due to the stark contrast between the highlights and shadows in the images.
Would I do this barebones experiment again? Absolutely!
Check out the few photos from the shoot that did turn out below!
