Photography Based on Silver Halides. An Overview

  • Shinsaku Fujita


Color photography uses silver halides (AgX) just as black-and-white (B&W) photography does. However, the silver halides in color photography work only as mediators for transforming light into organic image dyes. In fact, final pictures obtained by color photography are composed of dye images but not of silver images; no traces of silver derivatives remain in the final pictures. To begin with, a color photographic process is briefly compared with a B&W photographic process.
