    This particular portait is 1940 style pre color film portait.... It was a chance encounter with the lady and I just make the picture on a lark... One shot one picture. I color it on the computer just as I would by hand. I think that to be retro color or even selective color retro you have to start with a real black and white image and go from there same with sepia.[​IMG]

    it was shot with a polaroid 160 roll film converted to shoot 120 with a graflex roll film back. The flash was a 283 with aligator clamps for pc terminals. the film is arista black and white 100asa The black and white image was tinted with I think a program I bought just for that purpose. It wasn't cropped and didn't even need dust spotting. I think the woman must have been magic.
