Black & White Film Photography Photo Walk

Let's get together for a black and white film photography photo walk. We'll focus on looking at the world in terms of light values and contrast, instead of color. Then we'll put it into practice by going out and shooting some black and white film.


If you have a film camera then please bring it. If not, please let me know when you sign up so that I can provide one for you for the meetup. You will also need some film. Black and White film can be purchased locally at Biggs Camera or you can order some online through Adorama, B&H Photo, Freestyle Photo, Calumet, Amazon, The Film Photography Project, etc. I will also have some rolls of film available if anyone signs on last minute or has trouble getting film.

      Joseph. The next meetup I schedule in April will be Pinhole Photography. Though look for repeat of the black and white film shoot later this spring or summer.

    Hey Adam, I have film camera with negative black and white film, ready to shoot. Can we take part in that meet Up?

    March 12, 2014

    • Adam

      Joseph, the meetup is full. If a spot opens up everyone will receive an email notification. Then it's first come, first served.

  • Henry M.

    Adam. You had mentioned that I could borrow a film camera for this event. What type of film do you recommend I purchase?

    March 12, 2014

    • Adam

      Henry, Buy a roll or two of 120 film. 100 ISO.

    Hey Adam. How do ppl get notified if there is an empty spot? Also, can we just join anyway? The market is big, the weather is supposedly nice...?

    March 11, 2014

    • Adam

      There are just so many people that I can reasonably accommodate at a time. If a spot opens up an email will be sent out.

    • Adam

      Right now this meetup is full, but keep an eye on your email. If a spot opens up an email will go out and the first person to sign up gets the spot.

    Hey!! The first time I tried to pay on amazon, it didn't load up and so I did it again and turns out it did go through the first time. So if you can undo one of the payments that would be great, if not, no big deal!! Thanks

    March 4, 2014

    • Adam

      Did it actually charge you twice?

      March 7, 2014

    • Yash M.

      Yes !! But don't worry about it !!

    Ah! I would have loved this one...can we do another? I will be in Pittsburgh for my bridal shower this day... boo.

    March 4, 2014

    • Christen

      Maybe we can do one at the Common Market in PM and compare??? :)

      March 4, 2014

    • Adam

      If this meetup is well received I will probably schedule another some time in the future.

    Hey Adam, I assume we won't be developing the film? I have some old black and white film that's C41 process that I want to use, but obviously we won't be able to develop it... If we are going to develop, I'll need to stock up.

    March 6, 2014

    • Adam

      Everyone will be responsible for having their film developed. I can recommend some places if people are unsure of where to send their film.

      March 7, 2014

  • Dina

    Also, FYI, Biggs is open on Saturdays from 10-5, if anyone needs film.

  • David V.

    Sorry for triple-post ... What the ...? Anyway also if you ever want us "usual suspects" film nerds to wait a few days on sign ups for events like this, so n00bs or film-curious ppl can get in, let us know.

    March 4, 2014

  • David V.

    I may also have a payment hang up but I'll give it awhile and see. I RSVPed by mobile, got into the pmt process, and then it wasn't clear whether it finished.
