The Hand-Colored Photographic Print
with Kate Breakey
July 13 - July 18, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

“Kate is not only outrageously talented, she’s an effective teacher and gives 1000%. She’s able to handle a wide range of students from beginners to advanced.” Laura Goin, past participant, The Hand-Colored Photographic Print with Kate Breakey

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. Applied color has become a way for photographers to communicate their feelings, not just simply a means of creating another color image.

Kate introduces you to the materials and techniques of hand-coloring while inspiring you to experiment with your own creative process. You start with traditional silver-based or digitally output prints and then apply a variety of paints, pigments, pencils, and inks to extend the photographic image and produce the effects you are want. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Come spend five days exploring the art of the hand-colored image with a modern-day master. "Photography is magic in its own mysterious, chemical way,” Kate says, “but I love pigment—the color, the smell, the whole tactile thing."
