Here's another fascinating gallery. This time, 100 yrs ago, in color,
in Russia! The process sounds quite involved and yields results that
are a bit over-the-top, but is intriguing, nonetheless. Reminds me of
my USAF days when I got a b/w studio picture in a bogus flyboy
uniform. They enhanced it, (airbrush?) so I ended up with rosy red
cheeks. Anyway, enjoy:

I remember seeing these last year when somebody posted the url. They
are quite startling and effective, more so than hand tints of the same
era.

What I found interesting was after doing some background research on
one of the individuals identified, and how he fitted into
Post-Revolution Russian history, Isfandiyar Jurji Bahadur, Khan of
Khorezem and how he did not go as quietly as the Czar during the
revolution. In 1917 Khorezem became the Khanate of Khiva and was
eventually incorporated into the USSR as Uzbekistan.
Isfandiyar refused to recognize the Bolsheviks and organized the tribal
factions in the area to repulse the Bolsheviks. He was succeeding in
this when he was assasinated from within his organization. His Uncle
Abdullah Khan succeeded him, but was not able to maintain the
resistance and forced to abdicate in 1920.
There is much more to this story, and I only mention it because it was
his photograph which led me to dig into that history which was
practically unknown in the West.

Interesting photos, thanks.

The process isn't all that involved, it just makes three separation
negatives, one through each of the additive primary colors.. One
semi-popular camera to do so was the Curtis One Shot. The procedure is
similar to that when making dye transfer prints or separations for offset
printing. The color is excellent but the subject has to remain stationary
while the exposures are made else there will be color fringes as there are
in one photo that included moving water.

These have made the rounds many times, much earlier than 2010. But
they're very much worth seeing, even seeing again.

You can, by the way, download the original high-res scans from the
Library of Congress, and do your own restorations. And make prints from
them, too. It's fun to play with -- and helps me appreciate the work
they did on their restoraitons.

I first saw the Russian pictures in 2001. I got curious about the water
effects (and clouds), and did some tests.

As you might expect (but it was still fun to see), combining color
layers from separate exposures from a digital camera produced very
similar results. I blogged, with examples, at

Amazing photographs of a bygone age and culture. Each image conjures up it's
own magic.

I never saw photos like these before, thanks for posting the link.
