It was black and white and printed on double-weight paper. It was then hand-colored. What I love is the instructions to the hand-coloring artist, which were written on the back.
Throwback Thursday is the perfect time to bring a little marketing discipline into your life as an artist. Make it a point, at least once a week to look for old images. Use those images in blog posts to help educate your clients on the value of photography. You're not just "taking photographs" but creating unique family heirlooms to be handed down to future generations!
Happy Throwback Thursday everybody and remember, if you find a gem you want to share, email me at email@example.com. I'd love to feature some of your throwback images in a blog post. And remember, never compromise on the quality you put into any image you capture/create for a client today, because down the road it's going to be somebody else's classic memory.
