Monochrome / Black and White / Colour Pop

The technical definition of Monochrome is as follows: A monochromic image is composed of one colour. The term monochrome comes from the Ancient Greek: μονόχρωμος, romanised: monochromos, lit. ‘having one colour’. A monochromatic object or image reflects colours in shades of limited colours or hues. Images using only shades of grey are called grayscale or black-and-white.

Monochrome photography is photography where each position on an image can record and show a different amount of light, but not a different hue. It includes all forms of black-and-white photography, which produce images containing tones of neutral grey ranging from black to white.

Colour pop is a very simple but effective photography technique where you keep one part of the image colour whist turning the rest black and white, thus making the colour part pop out of the image.

* Giclée prints are produced on the following basis:

  • That the printer should use Pigment based ink (as opposed to dye-based), mine is a Canon Pixma Pro 10S
  • The printer should use 8 inks or more, the above printer uses a 10 ink system
  • Fine Art paper should be used and be of archival quality and all are acid free (I use this type of paper with an estimated life of 80 – 100 years )
