Sendai in Black and White III

This is the third part of the ‘Sendai in Black and White’ series. You can find the first part here and the second part here.

Continuing in the same vein as previous parts, I keep experimenting between digital and analog. I find the grainy texture of film gives a certain vibe that makes even new things look old. In contrast, digital shots, unless tampered to look vintage, are sharper and give a more stylish flair.

Can you tell which shot is taken with a DSLR and which is taken with a film camera?

In addition, for the past few months, I have been enjoying taking photos in a minimalist style. This is especially true when I’m using my film camera, as I find that film is the perfect medium to convey simplicity in images. These are some of the shots.

I hope you enjoyed this article. It will probably take a while before I think of a new theme for part 4. In the meantime though, you could probably suggest a new idea to me! It’ll be my pleasure to take on the challenge.
