Experimenting with Red Blue Green

Reading up on early Autochrome process I thought I’d try taking an old BW photo making 3 copies then tinting them up and mixing together to see what happened – obviously far from perfect but you can see the start of some colour seeping into the image.

The above conversion is all nonsense of course but interesting in that some colour was introduced - mostly they do a better more colourful sepia
Some of The Autochrome photos I've seen are very beautiful indeed - and made more interesting because of their historical capture

I'm loving those experiments, Roger. I have hand colored silver gelatine prints back in the day and liked it quite a bit but I'm afraid that digital has thoroughly spoiled me. Anyway, nothing beats the 'real' thing in my book and I'm looking forward to install another dark room - once I have finally settled somewhere - should that ever happen, lol.
