Quote from: Jim Stettler on August 10, 2021, 12:53:37 AMI was told early color phones were created for the film industry. They were shooting in black & white , which seemed silly to me.Since then I have learned some stuff about early black and white film making.The main point is it is actually shades of Gray vs B&W. I studied printing into high school and I learned gray scale . this helped me comprehend the difference.Shooting B&W as shades of gray is a visual artform. Shooting color is easy.Sorry I can't be clearer on my explanation.They say Alfred Hitchcock was very good with shades of gray.JimBTW early color tended to be oversaturated . Shades of gray require much more thought.
