Photography Techniques

Black and White Photos

There was a time where all photography was black-and-white (also known as monochrome). However, because it was the cheaper option and it had an original photographic appearance, it was  being used for some time even when color film had emerged. (Source: Liz Wells. Photography. A Critical Introduction, 2004)

Here is a great example of black and white photography by Sally Mann, the photo featuring a girl with a cigarette shows a story, both emotional and beautiful.
