We recreate important moments through colour

Adding colour to a black and white photo does not intend to replace the historical value of the original, at Yesterdays Australia we believe and understand originals are not replaceable and their most significant amount resides with the source, however, our mission is to preserve and connect with memories and history using the technology available to us today. 

Photo colourisation adds a different value to an old grayscale photo, and it helps the viewer to connect with history on a different level, the recreation of colour in a photo acts much more like a compliment rather than a replacement and help us seeing history as we see our lives.

Although some people might differ, We genuinely believe photo colourisation can achieve an emotional connection with a photo, colour is an integral part of our lives and recreating moments, clothing, artifacts and people can undoubtedly describe better moments, stories and memories.

COLOURING BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOS

graphic vintage item

We can achieve a reasonable rate of accuracy when recreating and colourising a photo.

Using Adobe Photoshop and performing proper research of the colour palettes and tonalities, lighting conditions and real textures we can recreate or even modify the colour on a photo.

Photo colourisation requires dedication, passion, lots of time, skills and a good understanding of the period when the photograph was taken,

Adding colour to a black and white photo is not only about adding adjustment layers in Photoshop but choosing carefully which colours to add and howe these behave and blend across the frame.

It is essential to define how light affects the colour and tones, understand the ambient temperature and how soft or harsh was the light at the moment of the capture.
