Tinting Black and White photos

Early in my photography career I was experimenting with tinting Black and White photos. I was using “Ecoline by Talens” liquid water colors, having lots of fun, and after a while I was able to get consistent results.

Tinting Black and White photos digitally, has more freedom, It’s less adventurous, more straight forward and gets the job done.

Below is a tinted Black and White image of August, Shot in South California with my favorite 80mm 1.8 lens.
