This is just a fairly spontaneous photo from the shoot for my previous image, but I wanted to try hand colouring a photograph; similar to how photographers decades ago would make black & white images look more realistic, only with Photoshop.

 

I definitely had this image of the wonderfully talented Sarah Ann Loreth's in mind when I was editing.

 

This was a challenge for me because I had to try and settle somewhere in the middle of my obsession with typically 'flawless' editing & the hand-done looseness of the traditional method. I may have to revisit this technique again... but I enjoyed trying it!
