Hand-colored Black and White Pictures
First Online: February 21, 2007
Since the advent of digital touching of photographs, the hand-coloring of monochrome photographs is a dead art form. However, to document a glorious era in the world of black-and-white photography, and to do justice to the laborious hours of the artist/photographer K.L.Kamat, who used transparent photo colors to hand-color the photographs, we bring you this online exhibit.
The transparent colors that Kamat has used were actually "see-though" colors that you apply in coats to enhance or manipulate the black-and-white photograph. Cotton stubs and hairline brushes were used to apply the colors. Excess colors were washed and then the photograph was glazed in a glazing machine.
