Workshops hand painting London 15.01.2017

The art of hand coloring black and white prints has been around almost as long as photography itself. Its humble beginnings date back to those early days of the first daguerreotypes.

I have been hand coloring black and white photographs for several years now and currently would like to teach others so that they can enjoy this extremely creative technique.


Atendees of this one-day workshop are asked to bring their own photographic prints to the class, it will be the basic material we will be working on. Please do avoid matt rag cotton based prints as they may be unsuitable for the beginners.

Over duration of this course we will be manually adding colour to a black-and-white photographs and also learn how to hand retouch/spot BW images.
