Final Image

Autochrome was a color positive transparency process developed by Lumiere in 1907 and used by such photography greats as Edward steichen and alfred stieglitz, just to name a few. The process consisted in coating a glass plate with a random mosaic of microscopic grains of potato starch dyed red, green and blue which act as color filters. These rather coarse grains of starch gave a hazy, pointillist effect to the overall image.In the digital age we can recreate this effect with the use of digital noise.
