    100 Year Old Color Photos - You have got to see these.

    Here are some color pictures taken circa 1910. They were made in Russia and look like they were made today. The photographer used three cameras I guess with RGB filters. I thought Kodachrome was first in color, but even if I'm wrong, these were taken decades before that. I was only able to open about 6 of the photos and with my dial up that took forever. The author is only showing a few now and will post more when he comes back from vacation. Check them out. They are at...

    Hope you enjoy them. Ric.
    P.S. I don't know if this is the proper place to post this, but I thought you guys would be interested.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Wow, amazing quality. Hmmm, so if color film were to disappear, there is still a way to do color.

    Yep. Apart from gum bichromate, dye x-fer, carbro, and similarly involved processes in which each color layer is printed separately, the options involve digitization, however.

    Also, without a bona-fide one-shot camera, which shoots all three separations simultaneously, you are limited to totally still objects if you do not want to see the separate color layers where movement occured between shots. A few of the Russian pix clearly show the effect of movement between exposures; number three on the arm on the left hand side, and number four in the water, for example. This being said, this effect is surprisingly absent in the photos over all!
