Although color photography is arguably more ubiquitous these days than black and white photography, that wasn’t always the case. The first color photograph came on the scene in 1861 when a man named Thomas Sutton created it. Before that, black and white photography reigned supreme. This article from Adobe can tell you more about how color photography came into being. Even when I first became interested in photography many many (too many) years ago, black and white was still the way to go. In fact, I was still using black and white film to complete both classwork and newspaper assignments when I was studying photojournalism at the Missouri School of Journalism about 20 years ago.
