Camera Noir

On the weekend B introduced me to an iPhone app called Camera Noir and all it does is take black and white iPhone photos. It’s very simple, there’s no front-facing camera option, you can only choose between three levels of light scale, but I’ve pretty much used nothing else since downloading it and it’s fast become one of my favourite apps.

Add a filter in Instagram and you get interesting grains in the shots, which reminded me I have some grainy back and white film that I bought in LA, which I’ve been meaning to try in my fish-eye camera.

So despite being an avid iPhone “photographer”, Camera Noir is the first app I’ve used that has both given me results I really like consistently and made me keen to go back to film and DSLR photographer to boot.
