Colorization of Young Frank Sinatra Making a Phone Call


Colorization of young Frank Sinatra

 I’m honestly surprised I hadn’t colorized a photo of Frank Sinatra prior to this one. Similar to  Rod Serling of Twilight Zone fame, I suppose I couldn’t find a photo of Frank that just seemed to fit right until today. I had never seen this photo of young Frank Sinatra and his mugshot just seemed too obvious of a choice.

For such a simple photo I had a difficult time with some of the details. Perhaps its the lighting on the phone, but I had a very difficult time getting it to look right. Chances are the phone was all black, but I threw some gold and light maroon in there to give it more depth.

The full size black and white photo and my colorization are below. Feel free to share this colorization on your social network of choice or leave any comments or questions in the comment section below.
