Trichrome experiments

Inspired by others online, I headed out to YSP with my Ondu pinhole camera, some HP5 and some cheap colour gel filters to have a go at trichrome photography.

Trichrome involves taking three black and white photos with green, red and blue filters. A little editing in photoshop to combine these and you get a colour image.

All went smoothly until photoshop where I just could not get the images working as a trichrome. I was following some pretty complex instructions that just would not work. Then I found a great little video description of the process by Amy Elizabeth, and within 30 minutes had 4 acceptable trichrome images.
