Artists have been tinting black and white photographs for decades, as far back as 100 years ago. But modern techniques and the artists who know how to use them make old photographs more believable in color than ever before! This photo of samurai warriors in training was taken around 1860, but the color is so good it might be mistaken for a Hollywood recreation. It was colorized by Jordan J. Loyd of Dynamichrome. You’ll see artful coloring of 53 other historic images by various artists and technicians at Inspire52. -Thanks, SparkS!
