Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The hand coloring of black-and-white photographs began almost as soon as the photograph was invented and has persisted dspite the introduction of color film and, more recently, the digitized photo image. Photographs can be colored using the same media that artists use on canvas and paper: oils, watercolors, colored pencils, and acrylics. This is a complete guide with individual chapters giving detailed instructions for each medium plus several chapters of general tips on color and mounting. Appendixes give names of suppliers and a media chart, along with an extensive glossary. This excellent guide comes from a publisher specializing in photography books.

Handcoloring Photographs Step by Step
by
Sandra Laird & Carey Chambers
Sandra Laird, a commercial and fine art photographer who teaches handcoloring, and Carey Chambers, a technical writer, teamed up and competently produced a very helpful and knowledgeable book for those interested in learning the art of handcoloring photographs. Every step is described and illustrated in detail. You just can't go wrong. Chapter one introduces you to the supplies needed and media available for handcoloring photographs. How to set up your workplace is discussed as is how to choose and prepare the photograph you want to color. Part of the preparation for the photograph is the correct printing of the photograph, print size and paper choice. These considerations are fully discussed. Then you make your choice of media. You can choose oil paints and pastels, watercolor paints, colored pencils, markers, acrylics or gouache. Chapter two introduces you to toners and dyes. "Toning or dyeing can help you achieve a better handcolored result," the author suggests. A before and after sample print shows the difference sepia-toning a print before coloring can make. The results are indeed, pleasing. Each step of the toning and dyeing procedures are clearly illustrated and explained. Again, sample prints illustrate the effect each process has on a print. Selective toning or dyeing (a method of toning or dyeing only a portion of a print) is also described. You are introduced to oil paints, pastels and other oil-based media in greater detail in chapter three. How to choose the medium best for your project and preparing the print for the particular media you choose is covered.

The text of the book broadly covers handcoloring techniques and products well. The subtle nature of the process, however, is entirely lost in the garish examples pictured. Another book, The Art of Handpainting Photographs by Cheryl Machat Dorskind, is both thorough and beautifully portrays the subtle to intense use of the medium.

After looking at other books on the subject, Handcoloring Photographs, Step by Step, offered the most examples and visuals. In my opinion, this book clearly is the best choice for anyone new to the area of handcoloring photographs. If you have to buy one book, this is the one.

Format: Paperback
This book covers most popular hand colouring techniques. Thus, it is a good material for getting to know the alternatives. However, as most of hand colouring books currently in the market (as far as my knowledge) this book is very poor in technical information, such as pigment and colour dye nature, their interaction with the silver image, effects to contrast and picture integrity, picture and colour durability etc. Methods are not very clearly identified, either, still leaving a lot of questions in your mind. It is a good advertisement for the American consumer market though. You will get to know which particular brands and their products will work best (! ) for you, ignoring all about the basic (raw) material knowledge. It is amazing that neither this nor any other book in the subject will discuss important properties of the colouring mediums such as transparency and lightfastness. In my opinion, this book works fine for people who want recipes and where-to-buy lists.

I have yet to purchase this book as I have many others on handcoloring. I glanced through it at the bookstore today however, and I will be buying it tonight thru Amazon. It's great for anyone new to this medium. Lots of tips, hints and photos to help you get on your way. Good examples of all different types of handcoloring techniques. I recommend it.
