Famous B&W Photos Masterfully Brought To Life with Color
These photos completely alter my perspective on the past. A black and white photo, for me, evokes a completely different emotion than that of a colorized counterpart, especially if it’s a photo I’ve seen in black and white for over twenty five years. In any case, this is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time. I seriously need to see a tutorial on this.
This is the third article we’ve put together of colorized photos from the past so make sure to check out the first and second articles as well. I’m always amazed at what a little bit of color adds to my perspective and view of the past. I just didn’t think that it was possible to this level, but then again there are some very talented people out there. Here are a few more from various artists around the interwebs. Where are their tutorials on how to do this?
