Colorization of Captain A Bevir
This photo of Captain A Bevir comes from the Imperial War Museums Collection in the Commons section on Flickr . His name was Anthony Bevir, and his correspondence address was given as the Colonial Office. This suggests that he was THE Anthony Bevir, later Sir Anthony Bevir, who went on to serve as private secretary to Winston Churchill during WWII. I can not take credit for that research as it belongs to flickr user “Paddymag1” on Flickr.
The colorization portion of this photo was not terribly difficult, but I did have some issues with the glare on forehead. I used a light smudge stick as well as put a new layer of tan skin on the top of the forehead to reduce the glare. I really like how the eyes in this photo came out, a really subtle blue with hints of green.
The full size original black and white photo is below as well as my colorization. Feel free to share this colorization on your social network of choice or if you have any comments or questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section below.
