Thanks for sharing! As a photographer I was really intrigued
It's amazing. Some photos that were redone in color lost some of their effect, but others actually became more intense with the addition of color.
Same here, on both points.
Pretty cool. Makes the people seem more real somehow. Got a question though. When colorizing a photo how do you know what colors are supposed to be which? I know that certain things like the flag would be red white and blue but what about things like a shirt or dress? Is the person just guessing at the color or is there something int he detail of the black and white image that tells you it was a certain color? Or even the shade of the color?
Oh no! Ted Turner's at it again!!
I was kind of interested about the process myself.
Atomic bomb pictures looks awesome.
I would hazard a guess that they draw their color tone inspiration from time period paintings. As far as the ship goes, it could be either a detailed research of what type of bottom coatings they were putting on ships at the time or just a guess.
I was reading one guy's explanation of it before, and I think it's a lot of research. The subject in a picture was wearing a medal, and he spent hours researching that medal. Very cool job. A WHOLE lot of work.
I imagine a lot is guess work, too.
I don't see any difference. Should I see a doctor about that?
I've been telling you for years that you see everything in terms of black and white...
Those photos in b/w are timeless.
Adding color = no longer timeless. Common.
true but the priest setting himself on fire is more powerful in colour
Those original photos are timeless because they are timeless. If the originals were in color and then were changed to black and white, it would be the same. The original color pics would be the timeless ones.
I disagree. The original pictures still hold the same impact. The others are just different versions.
Well. Timeless means, it doesn't change. Adding color officially changed the photo, so you're right. It's no longer timeless. :laugh2:
That said, the black and white photo isn't gone. It still exist and I think the color version really brings out a lot of aspects that are missing from the black and white version. (gives the image pop) Having the image in both color and black and white is definitely a positive over just having a black and white version.
You guys disagreed with my "opinion" lol
B/w usually :tongue: establishes the time period. Color changes that. Jeez. :nana:
