In the 19th century, color tinting was applied to early black-and-white prints to make them more closely resemble reality; it was the advent of color films in the 1950s that took photographic hand-coloring techniques into the realm of interpretive artistic expression, which is where it lives today. Applied color has become a way for photographers to communicate their feelings, not just simply a means of creating another color image. Kate Breakey...

Artist Update: The Story of Ziggy Starman Part II: My Sorrel Finds a Name and Horse Training Begins by Diane G. Rolnick

During my “down to earth moments”, I knew we had to proceed with a training schedule.  I...
