......... about color photography.


“Until color becomes less of a hit and miss affair, I will stick to black and white.” - Bill Brandt

“I will readily admit that I seldom see a color photograph which I feel is really good…..” - Don Briggs

“Unfortunately, despite the mass of work produced, there but a few truly great color photographs made.” - Arnold Newman

“Color tends to diminish the vitality of the photographic image.” - Paul Strand

These excerpts are from a 1957 Popular Photography magazine (which I found in a box I had for years), and in response to “How creative is color photography?”

The article in the magazine state, (excerpt) “Many photographers consider color a creative medium………… others, steeped in the traditions and techniques of more amenable black and white, are outspoken in their belief that the color image is too flagrantly literal to be a suitable vehicle for the creative worker.”
……………….

Five decades ago there were interesting debates going on. Some photographers felt that to be truly creative you must shoot black and white.

There was a full page ad for a Canon V-t 35 mm camera, with a 50mm f2.8 lens for $277
With a 50mm f 1.2 lens it was $458

But now film is becoming more of an art type use and digital is the norm. Whos right and whos wrong? Does it matter as long as the end result is what you wanted. Just my thought.
