The Hand-Colored Photographic Print
with Kate Breakey
September 30 - October 5, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

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.

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