Went out to Chateaux Trevarez for the exhibition of images by Julien Geradin which are placed throughout the grounds of the Chateaux He has a collection of 6500 autochromes, a technique pioneered by the Lumiere Brothers. Okay you might have to do a bit of google translate on the pages but basically...the birth of colour photography I'll post some images below ......but just a quick heads up on the image above. Because the light was so strong and I was on a walkabout with the F1.8 ,I was able to freeze the motion of water coming out of one of the Chateaux fountains...1/3200, f 1.8 at iso64
So...images taken into Lightroom where I just synchronised a mono conversion, lens correction and a square crop..opened them as a layer stack in Photoshop..top 5 layers selected and dragged into a group, opacity of the group dropped to 30% a very soft mask to bring back some of the bottom layer detail and I used Color Lookup, an adjustment panel, to add some color to the mono conversion..here are the images used in the stack. As ever...less complicated then it looks written down...
So here are a few images from the collection of Julien Geradin and his influence on the birth of Colour Photography
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
