Spring Tulips

The Autochrome process holds interest for me in that it was a major method of producing colour photographs at the beginning of the 1900’s and was not supplanted until Kodachrome arrived on the scene.

The process produces colour photographs containing rich but muted colours. The effect can be a bit surreal and dreamlike sometimes but quite satisfying.

One can attempt to duplicate the process using Photoshop.

There are a few tutorials online which are fun to work with. I am attempting to develop my own.
