New to the board- hobbyist not a pro!
I've been learning to colorize images as a hobby for the past 18 months or so and am amazed at the different techniques, approaches and abilities I've seen across the web.
I am not a photographer or an artist, albeit I have "rudimentary" drawing skills (I can draw what I see quite well but I have no training or marketable talent).
So, I'm all about enjoying what I'm doing and admiring the talents and gifts of others!
When I colorize I tend to naturally go for photorealism but will occasionally do the "artsy" image. I want to improve my ability to see and apply color as well as improve my understanding of lighting, shapes and the art of the photograph in basic general context.

Hi Modular_Folds, welcome to RTP! I'm interested in seeing some of your work and learning your techniques. I have a ton of old family photos scanned and would like to bring some of them alive via colorization and have only tried doing a couple using plug-ins (see here; scroll down for example done with Coloriage).
I posted a contest once and some people online had a go at a photo of my great-great grandfather; see issue #12 of my ezine here (screenshot attached). Other examples are inside the ezine as well.
