It is a strange fact that today, with colour in our lives being the norm, black and white photography remains very popular. In reality the term “black and white” is shorthand for an image that consists of tones of black, grey and white ranging (normally through 256 shades) from pure black to pure white – it is often, as misleadingly, referred to as monotone. For ease I will use the term b&w to refer to images using tones of grey ranging from pure black to pure white.
