Members who color photos

Post by Larrister » 18 Oct 2009 07:46

Hi,

Are there any members here who color B&W photos.
Maybe some members of this forum color photos and would like to share them.

Here's an example of one I colored a while ago. It shows 389 Inf. Division.

Cheers,

Larry

Thanks Mike. Some may not agree but I believe that if the colorization is done properly and the colors are accurate then this brings life to the photo.

Another colorization done by myself.

Cheers

Hi Alex

Yes I remember that one. Nicely done! :D

Hope there's someone else on this forum who does the same.

Meanwhile, here's another from my own collection I colored a while ago.

Cheers

Hi

I color photos for a very small fee to cover my time and effort. I have colored photos for books as well.

Here's one I did a couple of years ago.

Larrister, When you do this does the process require the original photo? If you could post some information about your services and fees that would be great. I think these would be a great present for my father to see a color photo of his dad.

These are very nice,and the object is to bring a subject more realism,not to fool anyone.B&W pictures are nice,but color makes it so much more 'real'.Unfortunately,I was never much for coloring,I always got bad marks for going out of the lines! :D ---bil

Thanks bil.
I collect B&W photos and have a very large collection. Now and then I find one that would look good in color and I color it.
Some are complex and others not, some can take a few days and others only a couple of hours.

Here's a more complex colorization which took nearly two weeks to complete.
