That is my favourite reason for shooting on black and white film. You’re forced to hone your skills much faster.
You don’t have this option when shooting on film. So you really have to pay attention to what it is that you want to capture and how it’s going to look in black and white.
Portrait photographer Brock Sanders has always been interested in film photography since a very young age. He experimented with the Diana F+, and speaks of the way using a different camera and ratio changed the shooting process + tips for new photographers.
The effects produced and the parameters you have to work within are very different from any other type of photography. This can produce some very interesting results – results that you may associate with a much older style of photography.

Take the photo below for example. I knew when I shot it that the left-hand side of the photo was going to be underexposed and that the right would be overexposed. This actually worked out really well.
This still takes about 2 weeks or longer. I’m there regularly for printing anyway so it’s not too much of a problem.
Photographer Ben Larsen ordered a bunch of photography-related items on eBay, one of these is an old black and white 35mm film which he developed home and the results were surprising — photographs taken in South Korea about half a decade later.
I urge everyone to start shooting on film as soon as possible. There’s a good chance you won’t be able to experience it in the future.

The light is harder to control but, when you expose a photo correctly with the light in the right places, the results can be much more dramatic.
My nearest lab that will actually develop it in-house is about 25 miles away. This isn’t really a lot of use as the development process itself takes a while. Instead, I take mine to my nearest major lab, who send off for it.

I have noticed over the past 2 years that development is getting more expensive. It’s also taking longer to do and film is becoming harder to find. If we take that as a sign of things to come, it doesn’t look too good.

I’ve been shooting black and white film more and more recently. Here are some of things I’ve learnt since shooting in black and white.
In my post on film photography, I talk in detail about how shooting on film helps to hone your skill. You think a lot more about what you’re doing before taking each photo, rather than wasting a piece of 35mm film.
35mm film and development is becoming increasingly scarce. This is because some of the major developers are getting rid of their wet labs, only doing digital printing.

3. If you decide to develop your own B&W film you can keep the developing fluid after use and reclaim the silver which is left over from the developing process. You’ll have to do lots of developing to get any significant quantities of silver, though!
8. Because B&W film is cheaper to buy and develop it’s a lot more affordable to try new techniques and experiment.

2. Developing B&W film in a lab usually costs a bit more than C-41 colour. However, it’s easy to develop B&W film yourself at home. The cost for developing a roll yourself works out at about £1 (USD 1.50 / EUR 1.20) a roll.
Black and white film in particular makes the skin look great. The natural grain adds texture and detail, while the lack of colour emphasises the tone of the skin.
Mistakes can get pretty expensive if you’re not sure what you’re doing with your film camera. This forces you to quickly learn what you’re doing wrong.

6. Printing B&W film is also pretty easy. It’s a great feeling being in charge of the whole photographic process from shooting and developing through to printing.
Black and white film photography is all of this and more. Normally, when I take black and white photos, I shoot in colour first and convert it afterwards. This gives me more options in post production.
That’s also one of the advantages of the poor dynamic range. The contrast on neutral colours is boosted.
