With 35mm film cameras now available second-hand for a few £ or even for free, there has never been a better time to get into classical black & white photography. There are many valid reasons for doing so rather than using a digital camera: my personal one is that it's fun and has nothing to do with computers.

If you have access to a scanner with a transparency unit, then you're all set. I don't cover making black & white prints in this article as this requires much more equipment. But by developing film yourself and then scanning it, you already gain a lot more control than sending it off to a lab. Plus, as I said, it's fun.
