Colourization

PICTURE COLOURIZATION INK & PC

Instructions
INTRODUCTION:

The object of this exercise is not to colour the whole image, but to surprise, shock or emphasize.
Check out some of the samples for ideas.
BASIC REQUIREMENTS:
FOR ALL IMAGES: Make sure the colouring in images has a ‘surprise’ effect, not just random placement.

PART 1: INK – 4 images

Use some Black and White prints you made in the Darkroom (or print new ones) and colourize them.
You can use Felt markers or colour pencils (wet them slightly).
DON’T colour the whole image – you should just do a small part for effect.

PART 2: PC – 2 images

1. Scan in some Black and White images and save them.
2. In Photoshop, load the image and create a new layer to colour on.
3. Masks a part of the image, then use ‘Edit/Fill’ ‘use: Colour…’ to fill with solid colour.
4. Use layer transparency to get a realistic effect.
DON’T colour the whole image – you should just do a small part for effect.
5. Submit your 2 best images placed on ONE folder

KEY CRITERIA:

Creative use of colour, neat application, surprise effect

CHALLENGE:

Take one of your images and colour ALL parts (Either on PC or on a photo print – NOT on paper)
• Use a variety of brushes, textures and colour blends
• The final object should look quite abstract, but still maintain the image
