Colorization of Plunging Necklines,1948 by Nina Leen
This original black and white photo was taken by Nina Leen in 1949. Nina Leen was one of the first woman photographers for LIFE Magazine and was known for her photos of animals, adolescents and American women.
I am quite proud of how this colorization turned out and I think it is among the best I have ever done. I take pride in my attention to detail and if you notice, the reflection on the table is quite accurate. The paintings in this photo really added to the fullness of the colorization although they appear a bit odd. The painting in the bottom left hand corner looks like a pope shooting a bazooka to me, although I’m sure thats not what it is. The woman on the far right also reminds me Lucille Bluth from “Arrested Development”.
The full size original black and white photo is below as well as my full size colorization. Feel free to share this on your social network of choice or leave any comments or questions in the comment section below.
