So, what is ?
Shorpy is a site for historical photos that are a look back into our past. I became a member last year and have been a contributor to their colorized B&W photos section.
Below is a list of all my colorization work.
- Wrapped in the Flag:
My first attempt at colorizing using Photoshop CS6.
- Bombay Bicycle Club:
This one took a little longer. The cieling tiles were most likely the hardest.
- Lux Life:
This was where I learned to soften my colors a little.
- Ocean Portico:
My all time favorite. This one was my first attempt at multiple ovrlays to get the different wood effects.
- Mr Right:
What can I say. This one just looked like it needed a little color.
Wallflowers was an experiment with layers that blended colors to get the effect of a two tone wall paper.
- Standards Of The World:
With this one, I attempted to get a more robust color scheme to show of the tan leathr of the seats and top.
- Perfect Timing:
I love this car. The trees were done using a multi layer color opacity.
- Play Me:
This was my first experiment with actual Layers From Copies. I first created the layer and decided the layer position and colorized each layer as seperate items.
- This Time
Again using the Layer from copy techinique, I got the effect better than I expected. Also found otu that if I went outside the lines on the layers underneath, the ones on top coveerd it.
- Here Today: Another shot of This Time, but with a group of guys.
- Back Seat Duet: Even though the picture was torn, I found it to be a snap in time.
- Misses Seperates: Department Stores are always hard to do. So much glass
- Bicycles On Main: Macy's 1940's.
- campfire Boys: Quite possibly the most time consuming and hardest of all to do.
- Illuminata: Mystifying.
- Sports Touring: Another oldie but goodie.
- Fully Optioned: Another in the Shorpyite Colorizer's tradition. She is always a redhead.
- The Silent Army: The most haunting I have ever done of General Pershing at Arlington National Cemetary.
- Musical Alfresco: The older the picture, the more of a challenge. This from the 1890s.
- Merry Old Cole: What can I say, I love old cars.
- Miss Fisher Body: Also know as, the Fisher Body Of Work among Shorpyites.
- Modern Receptionist: I thought this looked better in color.
- Snowbirds: I might try this one again. Did not get the grass in the background as it should be.
- Dixie Chicken: What can I say but, YUMMMO!
- Super Suds: One of my first using the new tools in Photoshop
- Lunch With Lana: One of my first using the new tools in Photoshop. View Full Size
- Kid Creole: I loved this kid and wondered about skin tones on this one.
- Sea Legs: Ok, so I did not believe that this lady was from the 1930's. She could be a model today and get away with it.
