Old Photo of Children: Restored and Colorized for a Client
Personal colorization and restoration for clients have kept me pretty tied up lately and this one was really cool in my opinion. The original black and white photo was in really good shape and the children had a kind of creepy vibe to them.
When I adjusted the levels in the pre-work, I was excited to see the darkness fill in dramatically, because this always makes for better colorization. Photos taken in direct sunlight are always really difficult because you lose details in the wash of the light.
The full size black and white photo and colorization are below as well, let know what you think by leaving a comment or question in the comment section below.
