Black and White
Photography has come a long way as technology evolves rapidly around us. There was no colour many years ago with the first cameras. Many additive colour screen products were available between the 1890's and the 1950's, but none, with the possible exception of Dufaycolor, introduced as film for still photography in 1935,
The introduction of Digital technology changed almost everything in the photography world. The first digital camera was created in December 1975 by an engineer at Eastman Kodak named Steve Sasson, now regarded as the inventor of the digital camera.
In the mid-to-late 1990's, DSLR cameras became common among consumers. By the mid-2000's, DSLR cameras had largely replaced film cameras.
Black and White or Monochromatic photography is still widely used in the photographic world today. Black and White photography is just as popular today as it was many years ago. Making an image black and white can help add not only contrast to an image, but help add mood and drama to a scene. I have always been a fan of black and white images and many of my images created today are black and whites.
