Monochrome photography

In analogue monochrome photography only only one color of the colorant is used. Most comonly monochrome photography is black and white (sometimes dyed - sepia).

Monochrome photo, like any other type of analogue photography can be in a form of a negative, print or diapositive. Photographic materials used for the monochrome photographs don't always have the same sensitivity to colors as the human eye.

At the end of the twentieth century monochrome photography for amatour purposes has been largely replaced by colour photography. Currently, analogue monochrome photography is mainly used by artists and advanced amateurs. The artistic potential of monochrome photography surpasses this of the colour photography.
