A timeless update to an ancestors photograph. This photograph has been hand coloured (like many portraits from the 19th century).

A nugget of information ๐Ÿ“ธ

The first recorded photograph was taken in 1826. Although capturing the moment in a photo was quite the discovery, it left people with a longing for colour and realism. Experiments with colour photography developed, however it was a more costly process. Most of the monochrome photographs were hand touched using a mixture of gum arabic (tree sap) and pigment. Hand colouring photographs became a well respected art form and was in its highest demand between 1900 and 1940. Hand colouring began as early as 1839 and continued as a trend until colour photography was introduced by American Kodak in mid-20th century, about 1935. As years passed the demand for hand colouring fluctuated. Up until the 1980โ€™s hand coloured photos were seen as more of a collectable item and sometimes preferred due to the permanence of the pigments in contrast to a photograph. Today digital artists use programs such as Photoshop to recreate the iconic appearance of a hand coloured photograph.
