A few thoughts on the color shades of photography:
The primary additive colors for light are red, green, and blue; the primary subtractive colors (which give the primary additive colors when subtracted from white light) are magenta, cyan, and yellow. Put all of the various color pixels together and you end up with one great color image.
Black and White is a monochrome image using black as the color.
A Monochrome photo is an image made of one color plus shades of that one color such as black and various shades, or blue and various shades of blue.
Comparing the three images below, which do you prefer, the “color”, the “black and white” or the “monochrome”?
