Learn photo retouching of Ancient Processes. Imitates historical photographic looks
In this course we will go back in the history of photography until its beginnings. We will take a chronological walk to be able to enjoy looks that will remind us of 19th century photography. But, most importantly, we will understand the reason for that look. Even the nineteenth century we will see the curious first works in film made by Kodak, with which we enter the twentieth century with the beautiful color of the Autochrome of the Lumiere, which will give us a perception of disordered colors. Once in the 30s, we will see the first generations of films that, unknowingly, have marked our visual memory.
Welcome to Recreation of ancient photographic processes
In this chapter we will make a presentation of the contents that we will develop throughout the course and with which we will acquire the necessary skills to be able to develop the proposed exercises. We will also see what are the objectives of the course and the base files that accompany it.

Old photographic processes: the daguerreotype
The daguerreotype is the first photographic process that has been recorded as such, and even today has a visual charisma that in the digital era has been completely lost. In this example, we will analyze it, evaluating the style of this process.
What is a daguerreotype and how to make it in current photos 03:29
Compare images imitating the style of the daguerreotype 03:09
Adobe Camera Raw settings in current photo 03:54
Canvas size adjustment and padding in the image 04:32
Converting the current image to black and white 04:41
Compensate the contrast of the image in front of the original 04:32
Add an old frame to our image 03:16
Add scratches and texture using Adobe Texture 03:52
Final adjustments in our image: levels and contrast 03:53
Old photographic processes: the calotype
The calotype is the second photographic process that we are going to analyze in this course. We will see what the technique consists of and how we can apply it to simulate, in current photographs, the appearance of a calotype.
The calotype: history and approach of the exercise 02:07
Density settings of the original file on Camera Raw 01:56
Conversion of color and tone of our current image 02:41
Create a motion blur in our image 04:55
Grain and texture to age current photograph 04:13
Final look of the current image converted to calotype 03:36
Perform a variable of the calotype: the blueprint 01:22
Placing the final image on a background paper 06:01
Old photographic processes: the ferrotype
The wet collodion technique is based on a glass plate covered by a collodion layer that keeps a negative silver image in suspension. In the case of the ferrotype, its support is an iron or steel plate painted with enamel, paint or black lacquer and covered with silver nitrate. It was used as a support for a collodion photographic emulsion.
History of the ferrotype and preparation of the exercise 02:30
Creating the frame of the ferrotype in the sample image 05:34
Basic adjustment of the image in Camera Raw and Photoshop 02:51
Lens Blur imitating the tilt blur 03:45
Inserting frames within the current image 03:03
Inserting textures to get irregularity 03:41
Grain insertion and final details in the image 06:05
Old photographic processes: copy to albumin
The paper copy to albumin was the first process that could execute several copies of the same original. The majority of originals were calotypes (made on glass), although then the paper was sensitized with egg white and then silver nitrate to make the copies.
What is the technique of the copy to albumin 01:46
Camera Raw and basic settings in Adobe Photoshop 03:53
Creating dominant backgrounds to generate contrast 04:03
Lens defocuses and clipping of the current image 03:47
Add vintage textures to our current image 04:41
Addition of the final frame to give character to our image 05:52
Final details in imitation of photographic technique 04:27
Ancient photographic processes: Kodak 1888
In 1888, Kodak revolutionized photography with the first camera that fired on film, which was a breakthrough in history to simplify the entire photographic process providing much more portability and speed.
Evaluate the peculiar style of Kodak 1888 01:49
Creating the background base of our image 04:23
Revealed photo imitating Kodak style 1888 04:23
Creation of rounded texture for our image 01:36
Fusion of the elements: photo, cutout and texture 03:18
Final adjustments of our current image 04:07
Inserting the text imitating the Kodak style 1888 03:05
Old photographic processes: the autochrome plate
The autochrome plate was developed by the Lumière brothers in 1903 and was the first color film of the time, although this color is somewhat messy. The shots made during the First World War are very famous.
What is the technique of the autochrome plate 02:44
Adobe Camera Raw settings in our image 03:48
Create tilt blurs in the current image 05:19
Enhance the colors of the image by way of autochrome 02:32

Grain insertion to simulate the autochrome movie 04:08
Work on the color in the example image 05:06
Final details in our current image 04:37
Old photographic processes: the Kodachrome
With the arrival in the 30s of the Kodachrome film we arrived almost to this day. This film has marked much of our historical memory, starting with the images of a lifetime of National Geographic.
What is the Kodachrome movie and how are we going to simulate it 01:30
Raw image revealed to achieve the Kodachrome effect 02:21
Create a texture with dominant for Kodachrome 02:34
