  10. They can find the beauty in anything

Interesting Fact: Color photography is almost as old as black-and-white, with early experiments including John Herschel‘s Anthotype prints in 1842, the pioneering work of Louis Ducos du Hauron in the 1860s, and the Lippmann process unveiled in 1891, but for many years color photography remained little more than a laboratory curiosity. It first became a widespread commercial reality with the introduction of Autochrome plates in 1907, but the plates were very expensive and not suitable for casual snapshot-taking with hand-held cameras. The mid-1930s saw the introduction of Kodachrome and Agfacolor Neu, the first easy-to-use color films of the modern multi-layer chromogenic type. These early processes produced transparencies for use in slide projectors and viewing devices, but color prints became increasingly popular after the introduction of chromogenic color print paper in the 1940s. The needs of the motion picture industry generated a number of special processes and systems, perhaps the best-known being the now-obsolete three-strip Technicolor process.

  1. Few photographers today work in the dark, deal with funny smelling chemicals, develop film or use manual focus. The other six are still good reasons to date a photographer.

  2. You remind me on my old business, I’m use to develop around 18000 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 black and white ID picture for the school where I’m teaching and I need to be in the darkroom from 5 pm to 5 am for. two weeks to meet my deadline. It’s hard but it’s worth.

    • Wow that sounds like a lot of time in the dark. Thank you very much for sharing your amazing story. I always enjoy that. Thank you again. 🙂
