I made a few more attempts on my trip in Europe at creating the Prokudin-Gorskii effect. As a reminder, that is when you take three black and white pictures of the same thing, each with red, green and blue filters on the lens respectively. Then, in post-production, you convert each picture, or layer, into a duotone image of the colour of filter it had, and sandwich the three together. This theoretically yields a colour image. I'm still, however, not ending up with images that are very vibrant at all. It could be I'm not getting the exposure quite right on all of the images. Maybe I'll try it again another time.
Any thoughts on this image? Intriguing or dull?
