Monochrome- an art

H O P E.....for better tomorrow

Generally, monochrome photography is photography where each position on an image can record and show a different amount of light, but not a different hue. It includes all forms of black-and-white photography, which produce images containing tones of neutral grey ranging from black to white.

In the present world, people prefer to see colorful photographs either a portrait or landscape but capturing a black and white photograph has a special place. Therefore in the world of photography, black and white photographs are considered as an art form. Some would even say, only the best photographers work in monochrome. It's a medium with a rich history and a bright future. Importantly to say, working in black and white gives us a different experience.

I must reveal here, that the JPG is a noble platform where we all join together with the aim of showcasing our experience in the world of photography.No doubt it is a learning process and more we spend time on photography we gather knowledge and experience. Especially, myself is influenced by a great photographer Lynn Harvey for black and white photography. Thanks, JPG and Lynn!!
