Hand-coloring is as old as photography itself. In the 19th century, color tinting was applied to early black-and-white prints to make them more closely resemble reality; it was the advent of color films in the 1950s that took photographic hand-coloring techniques into the realm of interpretive artistic expression. Applying color has become a way for photographers to alter their images so that they become something ‘other,’ something that can be more compelling and absolutely unique.

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the many materials and techniques of hand-coloring -inspiring you to experiment with your own creative process. You start with a digitally output print and then apply a variety of oil paints, pigments, pencils, and inks or pastels in combination, to extend the photographic image and produce the effects you want. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Photography is a magical process, but the ‘hands on’ aspect of applying pigment is not only fun, it is meditation on the joy of ‘making’ something that comes from somewhere within.
