The Art of Handpainting Photographs (Amphoto crafts)
by Cheryl Dorskind
Publisher's Description
Part of the same series as Amphoto's new Polaroid Transfers, The Art of Handpainting Photographs is intended to function as a working guide to the medium. It is well written and illustrated, and has a durable paper cover with folded end-flaps to use as place markers. Detailed lessons cover preparation of black-and-white images, choosing paints, working methods, and finishing touches. A fine addition to any technical library.
Amazon.com Review
The tradition of coloring photographs is almost as old as the medium itself, arising from the desire to soften the starkness of early photos. Handcoloring is very popular again, and this lovely book makes it easy to see why. Art photographer Dorskind clearly explains how she achieves her evocative and atmospheric "photopaintings," from materials and color basics, to composing a photo, to presenting and storing your work. Though the finished product may look like something only a professional photographer could produce, the technique is actually quite straightforward. And though the supplies are specialized, they are found at many art- and photo-supply stores, or can be ordered from a supplier in the book's resource guide. --Amy Handy
