Hello Jill, I have been hand-coloring using Luminos Charcoal R. I am now moving into digital and would like a paper that has the same look, feel and tooth of the above. Any suggestions for a paper would be most appreciated? I mostly use Prismacolor oil pencils. Thanks, Jim
I am working alot with liquid light in my work at the moment, and wondered if there is any narrative or meaning you are trying to put across in your work?
Hello Ms. Enfield, I teach photo at Sprague High School in Salem, Oregon. I want to work with Graphic Arts films, i.e., Ortho Litho and Half Tone films in order to try to reticulate the emulsions. I have an interesting book entitled, "PhotoGraphics" (1972) by Par Lundqvist. One chapter discusses reticulation of half tone films that eventually get copied onto lith film. My question is: What is the difference between the two? I always thought they were the same. Also, can you recommend good ones to use (both half tone and lith - if they are in fact different). Any information you can send my way would be greatly appreciated. My advanced students are dying to try this!! Thank you, Michael
For years I have handcolored on Ilford Glossy FB (MGF.1K) paper using Marshall's precolor spray to add "tooth" to the paper. I recently discovered some prints that were sprayed in a drawer (no exposure to light) and the spray had yellowed. To say the least this was of concern to me. Could you recommend a paper which has the same tonal properties as the Ilford paper, white base, multigrade, etc. but doesn't need to be sprayed as it is made for handcoloring? I never cared for Kodak's P-Max paper as it was dull and flat looking as far as tones, also it was a graded paper. By the way (shameless self promotion) you may see my images at : berkun.myexpose.com Thanks for your help! Brian
Hi, I want to hand color individual frames of a black and white 35mm motion picture film print. I haven't done any hand coloring before but I have been reading about it and I notice there are many mediums available and I wasn't sure what would be best for that job. I hoped you might have some good recommendations. The photo painting pencils sound good to me because they would provide fine detail for the small frames but I'm not sure if they would work on the film print. Maybe it would work to pre-treat the film with some pre-color spray and then use the pencils, or maybe it is best to use something else. I am about to shoot the film and then I wanted to get a work print and start coloring the frames. What would you advise? Thanks for your time! Doug
