autochrome pictures from the twenties. Yesterday I took this picture at the annual car show on Main Street here in North Bay. I thought this would realy look great as an old colour image from the beginning of the last century.

Marie Cosindas. She became quite famous in the sixties and seventies with images, which very much looked like the Autochrome pictures of the early twentieth century. Of course she did not use the original autochrome plates but her colour palette was very similar.

autochrome image. The picture sparked an interesting discussion about the autochrome process and how to reproduce the quality of this early colour process digitally. I am still interested in working on the iPAD and found a autochrome app, which does a nice job.The only problem I found is that the grain was too overpowering but you can easily reduce that effect. Using this as a starting point I ended up with this image of Calla lilies.
