Bygone Beauty

A quiet few minutes doing some more colourising of old photos before a very busy weekend.

I don’t know about you but I think this lady is so beautiful and there is so much emotion in her face.

The model is “looking out of the frame” a no no for some people today but, as far as I am concerned,  I think the photographer who captured this lady’s beauty, got the feeling and emotion spot on -even if she wasn’t looking at the camera !


New Portrait

It’s been a while since I did some post processing on a “proper” photograph… so I thought I would have a bit of a dabble this cold afternoon.

This is a portrait from a recent studio shoot – thanks Jasmine 🙂

All of the pictures included have been produce in 2017

2018 Calendar

After trying 3 different companies that print calendars (and being VERY disappointed with the results) I have decided to print my own 2018 Calendar.
Just finished it and I am finally happy with the results – phew !
This is the front cover …. and yes, its green 🙂

Lady In Blue

I am totally new to colorising old photographs – but learning all the time.

Sometimes the colours I use “drop” into place quite easily.  Sometimes, if I am having difficulty, I have to do a little research to get an idea as to what colours the people were wearing in those bygone days.

Either way it’s a lot of fun
