perhaps a resource for someone or just really cool ; this link talks about some old pics found......the Tsars photographer was taking glass plate negs with various colour filters....apparently to be able to print colour later.....and now they have been found....sorted and combined digitally.

follow the links to 2606 images.....lots of the grounds flowers though

Astonishing. Many photographs from this area have deteriorated out of existence; black & white, color or otherwise!

I wonder what other visual treasures remain undiscovered, like color short films from the early 1900s, shot in Europe or France somewhere that's locked away & haven't been exhibited in a century?

These are new? I'd swear I read about these, and downloaded several, seven or eight years ago. They were among my desktop wallpapers for a while. I think.

Very Cool! I always wanted to do something similar to this back when I was taking a lot of photo classes in college. This process is actually a lot like the idea behind the old three strip technicolor process.

Color negatives didn't really see the light of day until closer to WWII. The earliest color motion picture negatives that I know of are also from that era. The film speeds back then were super slow so it took an enormous amount of light to create a good exposure. Compare that to digital where you can pull a good image in realatively dim light without a whole lot of noise.

I think a lot of the technique of shooting has been lost to digital. It seems like very few kids who shoot digital have any real idea about things like depth of field or using focal length to thier benefit.

It should be standard for all animation students to learn how to shoot with a traditional camera (especially 3D students).
