I ran across an old color photography technique called photochrom and I'd love to figure out a way to emulate it. My first thought is to duplicate the image and make a monochrome version, then use a live procedural texture on the original to create a number of single, non-CMYK/RGB color overlays, but I'm not quite sure how to create the procedural texture to do that. Has anyone done something like this? Is there another approach I could experiment with?
I've been experimenting (playing around, mucking about) with a concept called 2.5D --"two and a half dimensions". I've seen it on TV programmes and historical presentation videos, and finally I've got around to trying it myself. I've had one or two false starts with images that are too complex (mainly for my patience, although my cutting-out skills have been challenged), but here are a few that work pretty well, I think. The first one is actually the first one I made, and was a bit ambitious. The last two are from a photo that allows for a drone's-eye-view approach. The photos were split into layers in AP, with the in-painting brush and the clone stamp used to remove things and add stuff around the edges where I needed to fill in gaps between layers. Each layer was saved as a separate png (to preserve transparency), and I used Serif MoviePlus X6 to put the whole thing back together and add motion. (I'm going to miss MP! I shall have a long search to find anything as versatile for a reasonable price.) This is Stowe Gardens in Buckinghamshire, if you're wondering. Capability Brown's finest. The poet Tennyson & his family at their home on the Isle of Wight. (Just down the road from my home!) If pioneer photographer Oscar Rejlander had had a zoom lens ... Walsall, 1900. Early drone footage! Same photo, different treatment. This photo was ideal, having so many layers of rooftops -- five in all, although I could have stretched it to six or seven.
