The top photo is digital colour, the bottom is black and white film. The middle is digital black and white, and the results leave me conflicted.
I love the tonality of B&W film, especially for high- or low-key photos. But starting with digital colour gives so much flexibility to create exactly the look that I want in the finished image that it's hard to justify using film. These three are all the same car – I'm 90% certain, at least – but the middle photo is what I want it to look like.
The implication is clear: it's time to invest in a set of contrast filters.
