Although the color photography was started in 1861 by James Clerk Maxwell, it was very complicated and expensive procedure and take too long to color a single photograph. If a person wanted a colored photo, then he had to color it using different dyes and pigments. In 1907 two French brothers called Auguste and Louis Lumi\u00e8re invited a technique known as Autochrome Lumi\u00e8re. They used dyed grains of potato starch and light-sensitive emulsion to produce vibrant photographs without the need for additional colorization. The brothers revolutionized the world of color photography until Kodak took things to a whole new level with the invention of Kodachrome film in 1935. However, a pioneer like Auguste and Louis Lumi\u00e8re played a keen role in inventing color photography technique.
