Portrait and animal photographers may use a large aperture for a shallow depth of field to put their subject in focus while keeping the background blurred. Landscape photographers wanting to clearly capture an entire panoramic view may choose the opposite. Choosing black and white over color gives a timeless quality to photos, while colour has a unique capacity of capturing attention.
Many things have changed since Joseph Nicephore Niepce used a camera obscura to produce the first stable photographic image in 1826. Even since the “Daguerrotype” of Louis Daguerre captured more stable pictures. Also, the commercialisation of the Autochrome in 1907 seems to look too far away from nowadays. But however, it was not until 1936 that colour photography came into widespread public use. And 1990 marked a new era with the worldwide release of the Dycam Model 1 camera.
So that, the 19th and 20th Centuries became a prominent time for photographers; with Oscar Rejlander, Julia Cameron, Eadward Muybridge, Albert Bierstadt, Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt. Dorothea Lange, Edward Curtis, Diane Arbus, Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton and Mario Testino. Many names that contributed in diverse photography styles to capture the beauty of the world surrounding us.
