Hand Color PhotographsHand-coloring refers to any of a number of methods of manually adding color to a black-and-white photograph or other image to heighten its realism. Typically, water-colors, oils and other paints or dyes are applied to the image surface using brushes, fingers, cotton swabs or airbrushes. Some photographic genres, particularly landscapes and portraits, have been more often hand-colored than others, and hand-colored photographs have been popular enough that some firms specialized in producing them.
