Inupiat Family, 1929
This photo of a Inupiat family was taken in Noatak, Alaska circa 1929, by Ernest S.Curtis and comes from the Library of Congress. I had nearly completed colorizing this photo and somehow accidentally flattened the image before doing some detail work. This caused me to lose all of the adjustment layers and I basically had to start from scratch. Lesson learned, I will be making backup saves of my work in progress from now on.
The furs in this photo took quite awhile to colorize and I ended up using about 25 layers per individual fur coat. Below is my full size colorization as well as the black and white original.
