Landscape photography is about showing the spaces within the world, which can range from the vast and the unending, to the microscopic details. Cities are amazing places to photograph, with the dramatic mix of people and architecture that makes for photos that are worth capturing. Architectural photography is the art of capturing the beauty of aesthetic structures and the science of accurately representing them as subjects.
In 1877, the first colored landscape photo, “Landscape of Southern France” was taken by Louis Arthur Ducos du Hauron. He was the one who invented the subtractive color method of taking photographs. In this method, the only colors were cyan, magenta and yellow. He also worked using additive (red, green, and blue) colors. Back then, they only had a handful of colors to capture scenes with, but this forum will show you just how far colored landscape photos had gone since then.
