20 Historical Colored pictures

The history of photography is only about 200 years old and the period in which it was possible to take color images, it is much shorter. However, the color makes us perceive the image we see as more realistic. Fortunately, there are communities of photo enthusiasts who color images in black and white, what makes us emotionally closer to our roots.

It is often difficult to realize how close we are, historical events such as the wedding day of our grandparents or the Second World War. Fortunately, today's digital possibilities glimpses, albeit in a somewhat speculative, our past, believe it or not that was in color. The coloring process is not easy and depends largely coloreador involvement. Lots of colors can be recognized by the subtleties of gray tones, photos in black and white. Another way is to investigate past fashions, the coloration of the places that still exist today and a fairly common sense, for example, makes us understand that the hair color of a person in a historic black and white photo is probably a natural color.

However, keep in mind that an equally important part of the coloring process, is the conjecture about the ancient fashions. Even with access to all information, in theory, you can never be 100% sure of the true colors and nuances that might have been captured in a picture given. However, Coloring a historic photograph, which would otherwise only seen in black and white, is podtía considered as part of a world that has never been seen.
