In today’s look at film photography, we decided to share another very interesting video by Ted Forbes from The Art of Photography.  Ted discusses a few important tools for Black and White film photography. Amongst those; the value of using a light meter and a few key books on Black and White film photography by masters such as Ansel Adams. Finally, a look at Black and White Film options.
