Black and White photography is very popular, especially in magazines and photography. However, because of the limitation of color, many people do not like it. These same people would not consider black and white photography to be good photography. Black and white photography has two sides. On one side, it is limited to just black and white, while on the other side it can also include colored film.
Black and white photography offers a glimpse into the past, because for the most part everything was black and white. Although that may seem odd, the fact is that the past had a lot more color than we do now. From the very beginning of man the world was filled with color. However, we have not only lost much of our culture and history, but we have also grown away from the natural colors. Black and white photography is about that natural environment, without coloring or filters. The black and white nature of a photograph gives it a very stark and beautiful appearance. It captures the beauty of nature without having to adjust the colors with a palette.
Black and white photography has been a very popular form of photography for decades, and it continues to be. In fact, black and white photography is so popular that it is almost hard to find any color photographs that were taken during the same period. Some of the most famous photos taken during the days of black and white are Monet’s Water Lilies, Merivale’s Lament for the Maimed, Picasso’s Portrait of Mr. [redacted] Alonzo, Warhol’s Barbara Streisand, Cezanne’s Girl With a Pearl Earring, etc. Many of these photos were taken during a time when only black and white photographs were available. They are without a doubt one of the most beautiful pictures ever taken.
