I am not sure the best place to post so if I am off pleaser relocate. These images are amazing in color, range and IQ.

Fascinating images. One thing I notice is that virtually nobody is wearing protective equipment in those factories. I don't see a single pair of safety goggles in sight .

What always gets me about these, is how "modern" things look in these photos. I think it is because most photos from this era we see are B+W, but when you see them in color, they are that much more real and lifelike. The people here just look like actors in period clothes.

Also these photos are great to study in terms of photographic lighting.

I remember once finding a link with a similar collection of color WWII photos, and it was amazing to see. I couldn't find the link I had seen before, but here is another link with a bunch of photos, some of the duplicates from the above link, or clearly taken from the same shoots.

To a certain degree I think they were. Especially the women are dressed well, as if they were going to take the train or go for an evening out. If you look at less posed images (these must be given ISO 10 and some of the dark environments), the clothing at the factories wasn't so smart. (And why would it be, given so much more manual labor in those days?) Even the railroaders in actual railroad garb are wearing exceptionally clean examples.

And don't forget that Kodachrome was ISO 10 in those days! Some of those are in environments I know pretty well, such as the railroad scenes. Those are hard to shoot today on digital, so getting them done well on a 4x5 at ISO 10 really took some work. It's pretty obvious he wasn't shooting at f/1, too.

Thanks for sharing.

Given the low ISO, large DOF, I'd love to know their lighting techniques. There's some rim and secondary lighting going on, but how they synched it and at what ratio calcs is something of interest to me...

Continuous lighting was pretty available. After all, it was the heyday of Hollywood.

I agree that the lighting is amazing. Some of them have almost have the appearance of today's digital HDR images. It would be very interesting to learn exactly how the photographers set them up. If they were using ISO 10 chrome then wouldn't the shutter speeds have been very slow? And yet there is no sign of any movement by the workers as they were being photographed.

I'm glad you all enjoyed the link. On the D800 forum there is a great video of Jim Brandenburge disscussing his experience with the D800 he previewed. He said it had the quality of a 4X5 and I had his comments in mind when I posted this link. John

Unbelievable. It is true....we're so used to seeing only b+w images that I think we almost forget that the world was not b+w back then Absolutely fascinating.
