As I was chatting with my color timer Jean-Louis Caplain, I realized a couple things. First, the days of shooting film are numbered. This fact makes me want to shoot film as much as I can in the months and years to come. And second, shooting black and white would be not only cheaper, but also a lot of fun.
Are there any DP’s out there who could confirm that shooting black and white gives better depth of field?
Anyway, here, in no particular order, some modern day black and white films I love.
The Last Picture Show
The Barber – The Man Who Wasn’t There
Broadway Danny Rose
