About This Class

514b148b

"Colorizing" is a fun and unique way for beginner/intermediate photo editors to learn foundational pro tools in Photoshop.

Not only will you learn how to colorize a photo, but you'll learn the fundamentals of layers and selection tools - keystone tools for Photoshop dominance. Already a pro? You'll certainly still learn a few tricks in here.

Prior to the 1970's, color film was hard to come by. But now, with the magic of Photoshop (or similar programs), we can colorize old black and white photos to imagine historical images in more than just shades of grey.

I'm an Albuquerque, NM based, globetrottin' photographer/videographer/designer with a background in education. My love for photography started on my first 6-month stint in Africa and, since then, has turned into a profession I never dreamt of having. From documentary projects to billboard placements to exotic landscape shoots, I've been blessed with the opportunity to do what I love for a living.

You can find more of my work on my site - Tyler Brown Visuals.

You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, and 500px.
