The Hand-Colored Photographic Print with Santa Fe Photographic Workshops / Starts September 30, 2012

The Hand-Colored Photographic Print with Santa Fe Photographic Workshops / Starts September 30, 2012

Hand-coloring is as old as photography itself. 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.

Your landscape photography expresses who you are and what you really care about. It is an interpretation of the world and, at its best, an intensely personal...
