All shot on an iPhone 6s+, then processed in Snapseed iOS app. Here follows the magic formula* for B&W conversion in Snapseed:

  1. Contrast +10%
  2. Drama +20% (don’t be put off when you open this filter and find it defaulted to a deeply unpleasant 90%)
  3. Convert to Black & White: ‘Neutral’
  4. Apply a colour filter in the Black & White conversion filter, to taste
  5. Warmth +8%
  6. Vignette: to taste, depending how cluttered your corners are
  7. Frame: whatever (but here’s something I have learnt: the more film-like the frame I use, the more I regret it later).

*Not a magic formula, obviously; but a useful shortcut, hopefully. All values above approximate.
