Invention of photography – Color Photography – When was Color Photography Invented

Color Photography – When was Color Photography Invented – Invention of Photography 6,00 min video created by George Eastman House.

Photography’s earliest practitioners dreamed of finding a method for reproducing the world around them in color. Some 19th century photographers experimented with chemical formulations aimed at producing color images by direct exposure, while others applied paints and powders to the surfaces of monochrome prints.

Vigorous experimentation led to several early color processes, some of which were even patented, but the methods were often impractical, cumbersome and unreliable.

This chapter explores early additive color processes as well as later subtractive processes like chromogenic color and the Kodachrome.
