And as Sepia Saturday is trying something different, I thought I would try something different with my first entry for the August theme. In the past I have occasionally been guilty of getting rid of colour to give my featured photos a feeling of appropriate age. This time I am doing just the opposite.
I am trying to teach myself how to hand-colour old monochrome photographs using Photoshop, and my image this week is part of my learning curve. I have used an old scanned half-plate monochrome glass negative as my practice piece and let my imagination run a little wild with the various colours of the outfits of this wedding party.
The fact is they all looked so miserable that I thought they needed cheering up a little so out came my digital paintbrushes and progressive overlays. After all, even the best of marriages needs spicing up occasionally.
