When I was a youngster back in the 1960s, my dad was a keen photographer too and shot mainly on transparency film. The type he often used was the Perutz brand, which had a certain beautiful, luminous contrast and colour balance. I have tried here to emulate the look of those wonderful old pictures for my own recent work. I love the results and think they have a gorgeous quality that transports me back to those happy days of the past. The polar opposite of the images in the Monochrome collection - soft, luminous, lower contrast and "false" colour. Enjoy! Click any image to see it enlarged. From there, you can play a slideshow or manually click through all images. There are two pages of images - click 1 or 2 below to navigate between them.
