I’ve been doing graphic and web design for over 10 years. During my free time, I started coloring old photos. I am a “good old times” person. I like old movies, vintage photos, and everything related to the past – distant past.
I’ve always been wondering how things looked like before. How colors looked like. These retouched photos came from that curiosity. This is just an idea to bring to life that time captured in black and white photos. So, I took my pen and decided to make them alive. The quality of colorizing photos depends on the original photo itself. Older and poorer photos are harder to work with and the final result is not so realistic. When I posted my work to the Bored Panda I had no idea that there will be so many reactions to these historical pictures. There are positive and, of course, negative ones, like with everything that ends up online. Both make me smile. There are people that are very excited, some are not and some are even offended. The last ones are the most interesting photos to me. I like to see reactions and emotions, no matter what kind. Currently, I am working on a new set of beautiful photos, even better and in higher quality. There is a rule in this business – the more you work, the better you get.
