This pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast dis­cusses hand­col­or­ing or hand­paint­ing your pho­tographs. This tech­nique involves actu­ally paint­ing a pho­to­graph. We talk about hand­paint­ing both tra­di­tional and dig­i­tal pho­tos.

In the first image I hand­painted the major­ity of the image using Mar­shall oils. It took a good 5 hours to paint. In the sec­ond image, which was toned before handpainting,‚mostly the back­ground is hand­painted.
