Colorization of Julie Newmar Overlooking The City
Julie Newmar is an American actress, dancer and singer who is best known for playing one of the incarnations of Catwoman in the 60’s era Batman television show alongside Adam West.
There are many photos and portraits of Julie Newmar around but for some reason this one just stuck to me. The camera shot seems candid as the photographer took the photo through the glass window.
One element of this photo that was a fun challenge to colorize was the umbrella shade or more specifically, the sky and building behind it. If you look carefully you can see the color of the sky and building behind the umbrella shade. The vines and flowers on the railing were a bit painstaking but not too tough.
The photo did seem a bit cold after I had completed the colorization, so I then used a warming filter to give a bit of warmth and take the cold edge out.
Below are the full size black and white photo as well as my full size colorization. Feel free to share this colorization on your social network of choice as well as leave any comments or questions in the comment section below.
