Resurrection Time

What better time to resurrect this old blog than the present time with the resurrection of some old black and white photos. I can’t turn water into wine…yet… but I can turn black and white photos into colour! I have set myself the daunting challenge of colourizing old photos that are either in the public domain or in my own private domain…one for every day of the year.

The challenge is to keep within the lines. No really, the challenge is to publish daily a photo that has some significance around the day of publication. It could be someone’s birthday or an important historical event. I have set the ball rolling with a colourization of a black and white photo taken by Philip Barraud in 1893. It’s a portrait of the famous composer Peter Tchaikovsky born in 1840 which I published via my twitter account on the 174th anniversary of his birth on the 7th of May.

Who knows what colour that tie really was but he strikes me as a man with excellent sartorial style so mauve it is. I wont go into the pros and cons here of colourizing old photos…we’ll save that for another post. But hey, if you really think this is a great way to ruin classic black and white photos then head over to Twisted Sifter or Bored Panda and get involved in the discussions there. I am trying to maintain a calmness in my old age so I suggest you go there now if you feel you have an opinion on the matter that needs airing. There are discussions going on there that just wont go away because we humans refuse to agree to disagree sometimes. Ooh and some heated discusion going on here at PetaPixel  Disgusting. These are lies. Charming lies, but lies” said one correspondent.

Moving forward…(thank you, Julia)…my aim with this challenge is to celebrate the date with a reconstructed impression of what the subject may have looked like had colour photography been available back in the day! With these colourizations, I will often add some interesting and colourful background textures to give the photos some depth. And in an effort to maintain some authenticity, I will do some research to ascertain the real colours of these early photos especially where military uniforms for example are worn.

Here is the digitized version of the original photo taken by Philip Barraud in 1893.

OK, so that’s one down…364 to go!

    Reblogged this on Random Phoughts and commented:

    OK, just to put this photo challenge into some context for new readers to this blog, I thought I would re-blog my original post introducing the concept of colourising old photos.

    It’s a topic that provokes a lot of discussion. Funny thing is if you do the reverse i.e. convert colour photos to black and white it is considered artistic and is highly regarded. I must admit that I have produced a lot of my own photographic work in black and white for dramatic effect. Yet change old black and white photos to colour and it’s “oh, you can’t do that!…it’s sacrilegious….you can’t alter history…well, guess what? I’ve now been doing it for 83 days and history hasn’t changed one iota!

    Anyway, I hope you are enjoying the journey….. only 282 days to go! (…what was I thinking?)

      Thanks Yvette,

      there are several ways to colourise photos using photoshop. I’ve played with a few different techniques throughout this blog but the method I keep coming back to is adding colour via adjustment layers and applying various blending modes. It’s quite detailed work but also addictive! 🙂

      Cheers

    Loredana, I came to visit your blog before responding to your comment on my “About” page, and what fun I am having!! Though incredibly ambitious, your project is absolutely fantastic. I’ve enjoyed the research you’ve put into the posts, the quotes you have included, and of course, the colorization. I also get a kick out of your enduring question “what was I thinking?” 😀 I’ll continue to look around so I can leave some comments, but I am delighted to follow you right back and looking forward to your daily posts. Well done!
