About This Class

In this course I will show you how to add color to your Black and White Photos.  We see this process used in photography and cinemotagraphy to create strong visual impact.  Limited color draws the viewers eye to a specific portion of the image.  

I will show you how to choose images, add the black and white layer and then work with Layer Masks to allow color to show through.
