Black-and-white is a number of monochrome forms in visual arts. Most forms of visual technology start out in black and white, then slowly evolve into color as technology progresses.
.Black-and-white as a description is also something of a misnomer, for in addition to black and white most of these media included varying shades of gray.^ Also, note the theme of including some variation or implication of death or dying in these band names.

.Further, many prints, especially those produced earlier in the development of photography, were in sepia (mainly to provide archival stability), which gave a richer, more subtle shading than reproductions in plain black-and-white, although less so than color.^ US Black Widow venom is about 10,000 times more toxic than rattlesnake venom, where as the Red Back’s is about 100,000 times more toxic.

^ The female Black Widow spider’s venom is deadly and is even more so than a rattle snake or any other spider.

^ However, 1 vial of antivenin will apparently produce immediate results and often the person comes to recover in less than an hour.

Media

Some popular black-and-white media of the past include:
  • Movies and animated cartoons. .While some color film processes (including hand coloring) were experimented with and in limited use from the earliest days of the motion picture, the switch from most films being in black-and-white to most being in color was gradual, taking place from the 1930s to the 1960s.^ Most have been unmistakable, however, some have had either white and yellow markings.

    ^ Sure *some* “metal” may have taken more from Ritchie – hair being the most prominent I can think of off the top of my head .

    ^ The danger of being bitten by a Black Widow is that the victim most likely will not feel it.

    .Even when most studios had the capability to make color films, they were not heavily utilized as tinting techniques and the Technicolor process were expensive and difficult.^ Even if Death lacked all the other criteria (which they don’t) they still are the most important band in death metal history.

    For years color films were not capable of rendering realistic hues, thus mostly historical films or musicals were made in color and many directors preferred to use black and white stock. For the years 1940–1966 a separate Academy Award for Best Art Direction was given for black and white movies, along with one for color.
  • Photography was black-and-white or shades of sepia. .Color photography was originally rare and expensive, and again often less than true to life.^ However, 1 vial of antivenin will apparently produce immediate results and often the person comes to recover in less than an hour.

    Color photography became more common in the middle of the 20th century, and has become even more common since. Black-and-white remains a niche market for photographers who use the medium for artistic purposes. This can take the form of black and white film or digital conversion to grayscale, with optional image manipulation to enhance the results. For amateur use, certain companies such as Kodak manufacture black-and-white disposable cameras. Also, certain films are produced today which give black and white images using the ubiquitous C41 color process.
  • Television programming was first broadcast in black-and-white. Some color broadcasts in the USA began in the 1950s, with color becoming common in western industrialized nations by the late 1960s and then standard during the 1970s. In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission settled on a color NTSC standard in 1953, and the NBC network began broadcasting a limited color television schedule in January, 1954. Color television became more widespread in the U.S. between 1964 and 1967, when the CBS and ABC networks joined NBC in broadcasting full color schedules. .Canada began airing color television in 1966 while the United Kingdom established an entirely color system in November 1969. New Zealand began color broadcasting in 1973, and Australia kept airing black-and-white broadcasts until 1975. While no longer used much professionally, many consumer camcorders have the ability to record in black-and-white.
  • Most newspapers were black-and-white until the late 1970s; The New York Times and The Washington Post remained in black-and-white until the 1990s.^ I use to wonder how I’d know if I got bitten from a black widow, now I know that there will be no doubt.

    ^ The most poisonous spider in the Black Widow Family is the “Red Back” spider found in Australia.

    ^ July 31st, 2008 at 3:32 pm Actually The Black widow is not the most venomous spider in the world 2 other spiders have much more toxic venoms.

    Some claim that USA Today was the major impetus for the change to color. In the UK, color was only slowly introduced from the mid 1980s. .Even today, many newspapers restrict color photographs to the front and other prominent pages since mass producing photographs in black-and-white is considerably less expensive than color.
  • Manga (Japanese or Japanese-influenced comics) are typically published in black-and-white.
  • Jet magazine was either all or mostly black-and-white until the end of the 20th century, when it became all-color.
  • School yearbooks have (historically) been printed either entirely or mostly in black-and-white.^ Where the two fangs went in, it’s red and blistered, around it is all purple and there is a large black bruise surrounding the entire thing.

Today black-and-white media often has a "nostalgic", historic, or anachronistic feel to it. .For example, the 1998 Woody Allen film Celebrity was shot entirely in black-and-white, and Allen has often made use of the practice since Manhattan in 1979. Other films, such as American History X and Pleasantville play with the concept of the black-and-white anachronism, using it to selectively portray scenes and characters who are either more outdated or dull than the characters and scenes shot in full-colour.^ I guess their first albums were more on the Death Metal side of things than since Leviathan.

^ US Black Widow venom is about 10,000 times more toxic than rattlesnake venom, where as the Red Back’s is about 100,000 times more toxic.

^ The female Black Widow spider’s venom is deadly and is even more so than a rattle snake or any other spider.

This manipulation of colour appears in the film Sin City and the occasional television commercial. .Wim Wenders' 1987 film Wings of Desire uses sepia-tone black-and-white for the scenes shot from the angels' perspective.^ I used albums sales only to bolster my point about Morbid Angel, over 1 million is an astronomical number, and even more so for the DM scene.

When Damiel, the angel (the film's main character), becomes a human, the film changes to colour emphasising his new "real life" view of the world.
Since the late 1960s, few mainstream films have been shot entirely in black-and-white. The reasons are frequently commercial, as it is difficult to sell a film for television broadcasting if the film is not in color. .Monochrome film stock is rarely used at the time of shooting, even if the films are intended to be presented theatrically in black-and-white.^ I live in southern California, and we do find black widow’s near and around the house all the time, but rarely do they ever get inside.

.Movies such as John Boorman's The General and Joel Coen's The Man Who Wasn't There were obliged to be filmed in color by their respective crews, despite being presented in black-and-white for artistic reasons.^ There’s a convention of Sane People (AKA “People who realize Mastodon sucks to such a degree that the members should all be executed for being a part of such a musical abortion”)???

.Clerks is one of the few well-known recent films shot in black-and-white for no artistic purpose; because of the extremely low out-of-pocket budget, the production team could not afford the added costs of shooting in color (though the difference in film stock price would be slight, the store's fluorescent lights could not be used to light for color; by shooting in black and white, the film-makers did not have to rent lighting equipment).^ Nice ad hominem attack there, could we keep our arguments out of the personal?

^ Before I got on the web I knew Black widow bites could cause stomach pain but I had no idea it could cause anxiety.

^ Replacing a light fixture on the side of the house one day, a large, shiny, plump black spider emerged.

Some modern film directors will occasionally shoot movies in black and white as an artistic choice, though it is much less common for a major Hollywood production. This is also true of black-and-white photography, where many photographers choose to shoot in solely black and white since the stark contrasts enhance the subject matter.

Computing

.Most computers had monochrome (black-and-white, black and green, or black and amber) screens until the late 1980s; however, some home computers could be connected to television screens to eliminate the extra cost of a monitor.^ Most have been unmistakable, however, some have had either white and yellow markings.

^ However, he called us at home the next day to inform us that he had done some research & now agreed with the ER doctor.

These took advantage of NTSC or PAL encoding to offer a range of colors from as low as 4 (IBM CGA) to 128 (Atari 800) to 4096 (Commodore Amiga). .Early videogame consoles such as the Atari Video Computer System/VCS/2600 supported both black-and-white and color modes via a switch, as did some of the early home computers; this was to accommodate black-and-white TV sets which would display a color signal poorly.^ I thought girls only did that on TV. Jacob Black , Eclipse , Chapter 5, p.119 .

(Typically a different shading scheme would be used for the display in the black-and-white mode.)
In computing terminology, black-and-white is sometimes used to refer to a binary image consisting solely of pure black pixels and pure white pixels; what would normally be called a black-and-white image, that is, an image containing shades of gray, is referred to in this context as grayscale.
