    Growing up in Besancon, France, Auguste Marie and Lous Jean attended a very large technical school. Their father ran a photographic firm and both children spent time working in his office. It is said that they developed a fascination with photography during these years. Although their roles in history were relatively brief, the different technological advancements made during their time was remarkable.The Lumiere Brothers strongly believed that the film industry was bound to fail sooner or later. Working hard to enhance the quality of still photography, the brothers invented the “Autochrome Lumiere Process” and published the first color line of film in 1907. As a result of their achievements the French Army was the primary source of color photos during the course of WW1.

    Autochrome
    Lumier
    Autochrome Lumiere was a process that was patented in 1903 that produced one of the earlier versions of color photographs. This process was invented by the Lumiere brothers in France, and was the principle color photography process from when it was first marketed in 1907 until the 1930's; when it was trumped by colored film.
    The Process
    The autochrome lumiere process begins with the autochrome plate, which is a glass plate, about 3 X 5 in size, and is coated in sap and beeswax, and mixed with starch grains. It would be placed in the camera, furthest from the emulsion lens, and is exposed. Then it is turned into a positive slide in the darkroom. It is the mixture thickly packed on the plate that produces the color.

    Aerial Photography During WWI
    The first World War battle grounds covered vast expanses of land, far more than have been covered in previous wars. As the battalions would move across the continent it became more an more difficult to monitor the location of allies and enemies. The use of aerial reconnaissance made it possible to keep track of troop's position. The officers would also rely on the observations of the pilots themselves, which often times were exaggerated or mistaken. To quicken the process wireless telegraph equipment was placed in the planes in 1915 so pilots could communicate with ground troops in a matter of moments using morse code. However this information was not always reliable as the troops often looked very similar covered with mud buried in the trenches. Never the less, the ability to precisely view the battlefield from above was crucial for developing battle plans that ultimately lead to the allies' victory in Europe. The creation of aerial reconnaissance also took the fight to the air. As planes become more advanced, and aerial photograph yielded more information to their proprietors, there was more focus placed on keeping the opposition from capturing the images. This lead to the creation of the dogfight, the introduction of plane on plane combat.
