offering full coverage for 35mm cameras and full-frame D-SLRs, and of course
whatever multiplication factor your sensor imposes on the focal length in your

Handcolorists have been doing it for years. They began with a black and white
image and using photo oils, chiefly from the Marshall Company (distributed by
BKA Group) added selective color or entirely covered a monochrome image with
