Ricoh GRDIV

 

as always, i am always fascinated by the pleasing noise the GRDIV can often give to some shots. this one was shot in bleach bypass mode and then converted to black and white. my only regret, and i think i already said that before, is the fact that you cannot benefit from the contrasted vignetted effects in the regular black and white option of the camera. in other words, being able to obtain the specific value effects available in the bleach bypass mode.

i sometimes shoot with the high contrast black and white mode, but it's an extremely risky "hard to manage" mode in many ways. it literally burns the shot in a way that you cannot control.
